“Implicit in the idea of conversion is that of forsaking the past unconditionally and accepting in its place a future of which the one certain fact is that it will never allow the previous pattern of life to be the same again.”
– Professor A. J. Krailsheimer, Conversion
“…having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.”
–John 13:1, ESV
One whom He choose, He love till the end of time. How can God does not love not one whom He choose? Or choose one whom He does not love?
Though you may drift away from Him, He keeps looking for you, just like this excerpt of poem Hounds of Heaven by Francis Thompson:
From those strong Feet that followed, followed after.
But with unhurrying chase,
And unperturbèd pace,
Deliberate speed, majestic instancy,
They beat—and a Voice beat
More instant than the Feet—
‘All things betray thee, who betrayest Me’.
‘Naught shelters thee, who wilt not shelter Me.’
‘Lo! naught contents thee, who content’st not Me.’
Lo, all things fly thee, for thou fliest Me!
Thou dravest love from thee, who dravest Me.’
Not all who wanders are lost, for some of them are sought after by The Good Shepherd.
“It is a Sin to judge any man by his post.”
–Saint Augustine of Hippo, City of God
“Authority comes not from wealth, power, or knowledge. Authority comes from YOU for being an individual unique to yourselves.”
“Fate drives us all to find our chiefest good in what we can, and not in what we would.”
–G. B. Shaw, Admirable Bashville
“If you can look into the seeds of time
And say which grain will grow and which will not,” (Macbeth, Act I, Sc. 3)
Time is ever uncertain. Nobody truly knows what will happen next.
Who are we then, to think that our plans will secure us?
The good thing is that the sower happens to be God.
He knows best of why, when, and where to sow.
Therefore believe in Him.
He will be with you through Time, to Eternity Perfect.
“Even a roomful of darkness will never be able to overwhelm a candle’s light, unless the candle burns itself to death.”
Evil is not the opposite force of Good, but merely the absence of it.
Evil is perpetrated when the the Doers of Good chooses to be silent.
In your fight against Evil, you will always be outnumbered.
The only thing that keeps you is that small candle; Hope.
To keep the candle kindling, it will have to “burn” itself.
Don’t give up! Keep fighting!
