Nothing Without You

I am Nothing without You, God.

Do we understand how useless –how incredibly vain– our jobs, dreams, desires, are in the end? I know that when we are without God, all is so meaningless.

When I get distracted by things, by cares, I get so restless, like I was looking for the meaning of things again.

Sometimes, it’s good to take a step back in my life, and figure out if I’m really doing what I should be.

Am I meant to be a writer? So why am I skipping so many days?

Am I meant to make games? Where is the productivity?

But ultimately, whether or not I’m meant to do these things, Am I doing these the right way? Is it for God’s glory? Am I asking for His plan before I start with mine? And is the final product worthy of Him?

But when I realize I’m unable to do things by myself, when I realize that by myself nothing is eternal, when I realize that I am Nothing without You, God.

That’s when God can use me; That’s when the work I do has eternal value; That’s when I am Something great. It’s all because of You, God.

I need You always in my life, for without you I am nothing.

Do be something; I need to dedicate all of me to You. Do be productive; I need to be always doing things for Your Glory.

Whether that’s writing, game development, singing, eating, drinking, sleeping, talking, or praying. All I do needs to focus on You and be for You.

Because I am Nothing with You, God.

You are Lightning

How can the world understand us?

Nobody understands the work that God does from beginning to the end (Ecclesiastes)

It’s difficult for even for US to understand who we are, and what we mean.

 _______________________

But here’s a clue, the World fears us. The god of this world, the spirit of the air, the forces of darkness, they all fear what we can do.

 _______________________

We’re more then conquerors. What does that mean? How is that possible?

MORE then Conquerors. . . We’re unconquerable; when we put on the armor, when we wield the sword, hold the shield; Not even the gates of Hell can stand before us.

Because of Him, because He is IN us. His power is freely available to Every Single One of Us. His Spirit dwells in us.

We’re God’s Army. And He provides the power. He gives us Strength, Power, Energy. We can simply tell the devil and his angels to leave in our Savior Jesus’ name, and they Have To Leave.

, We are Lightning. Lighting up the darkness, making all seem as though it’s day.

God is here, in each one of the Church, His Body. His Family. US.

Stop letting Satan lie to you, as though he can do anything without our agreement, stop giving in.

Be the Light, and Darkness will have to flee.

Lead Me to The Cross

Lord, help make me more then myself, rid me of my sinful self.
Forgive my frequent transgressions, Help me to Be Quiet and know You Are God.

Let everything I’ve valued, everything that I’ve held dear, be yours.
Make me into what I am meant to be, let me value You above all others.

I thank you for taking me, for making me Your Child. When I was spiritually orphaned in a dark world, You took me in. When I was physically hungry, You kept me Fed. When I was mentally exhausted, You gave me rest.

Lead me through the darkness of my pilgrimage. Lead me towards your light. Lead me to the Cross.

You Are All I Need

God, You are all I need in my life.

When I look around, what will remain? Death comes easily, taking what it will. Both People and Things can’t escape its grasp.

We all fight for things, knowledge, fame, popularity, power. And yet it’s all in vain, here now, but gone the very next moment. Our kingdoms all topple, and are regulated to the pages of history, then forgotten. Who will remember us when we die? Who will remember what we did? And who will remember our Thoughts, our Desires, our sincerest wishes?

That’s why I need you Lord. To save me from the hopelessness, the meaninglessness, the vanity, that is our Life.

Lord God my savior, I do not know what is tomorrow, please give my life meaning, and make me into an honorable vessel for Your house.

Amen.
