Celebrating the Excellencies of His Name -Oh Jesus!, by Norma Tochijara-

 10.12.11



Whom do you turn to when trouble comes?
Who can comfort when pain visits you?
Whom do you turn to when health, wealth, and prosperity leave you?
Whom do you seek for peace when there is pain all around you?
Whom do you turn to when the world offers you no hope?
Whom do you seek when you need to be satisfied?
Whom do you run to for shelter when the storm comes?
Whom do you tell your most secret thoughts to?
Who do you thank for all you have? (talents, shelter, food, ...)

        Jesus! It is Jesus and only Jesus you need to seek.

Jesus is strong when you are weak.
Jesus is safe and secure to stand on when you are standing on quicksand.
Jesus is a comforter when you see despair.
Jesus is the hope when the worlds shows you none.
Jesus is the satisfaction to every need.
Jesus is joy when trouble comes.
Jesus is with you when your friends leave you.

       But, not only in our need:

Jesus is better when the world looks the best,
Jesus is full of love when the world pretends to love you,
Jesus redeems you when the world tells you that you are fine,
Jesus changes in you what the world tells you to love,
Jesus gives you perseverance when you want to follow your heart,
Jesus listens carefully to your prayers when the charmer tries to seduce you,
Jesus is with you when you are in no apparent need,
Jesus knows best when secular wisdom sounds pious,
Jesus gives more that the world could ever give,
Jesus is your provider when we live in abundance,
Jesus satisfies when the world fills with air,
Jesus creates when the world copies,
Jesus loves when the world lusts,
Jesus is the real treasure when it seems like the world is filled with them,
Jesus conquers death when sin brings you to it,
Jesus is the Lord of all creation. He owns the world and it obeys Him.

                      It is Jesus; only Jesus !

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
