Beautiful Words

Beautiful words stir my heart. I will recite a lovely poem about the king, for my tongue is like the pen of a skillful poet.

THE HIDDEN BEAUTY (Posted in bahasa: KEINDAHAN YANG TERSEMBUNYI)


Who says that the night is always dark?
The dark sky makes starlight look brighter,
Moonlight shines beautifully,
And the fireflies fly looks like dots of light hovering in the air.
All moments has its own beauty.
However, can and do we really want to see it?

 

THERE IS A TIME

When partly of this earth is covered by the dark night, at the same time in another part the sun is shining. When the dawns, and the sun radiate its light in the east of horizon, in the other hemisphere the sun going to sunset. It all occurred in a predetermined time.

That is a life. Nothing lasts forever, even if we really want it. Not everything exactly like the way we want. We want everything going smoothly without any obstacles. We want all things going very well without any problems. We want to quickly reach our destination, as we boarded a plane to fly run through the sky to the land across the ocean. But, toward across the ocean we have not always using a plane. More often life takes us to use a ship sailing the ocean. Feel the wind blows, feel the waves, and feel the rocked storm. To through it all need time, persistence, and obstinacy.

As God’s child our hope is to walk from glory to glory. But do not forget that all final result is always going through the process. If we want to get the higher achievement after achievement, one thing that cannot be avoided is a series of processes. Quite often we have to pass through difficult moments, until we as it were no longer able pass those moments. But as Ecclesiastes said,

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, (Ecclesiastes 3:1 and 4)

Everything has “time limit”
The problem is not going to last forever.
The sad thing is also definitely will be passed.
So let’s not allow ourselves to be sunk.
There must be the end in all processes

Maybe there is a question in the deepest of our heart, why God not makes it all easier, faster, and lighter?

 

ETERNITY IN THE HEART

There must be a purpose from all that happens. Every process that we go through in this life will be eroding our ego, humbles us, weaken our flesh, and form us from every side. Then what is left after all ends?  Ecclesiastes said; “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart” (Ecclesiastes 3:11a). That is something steadfast, more powerful than any problems, do not falter despite the storms hit our life. That is the Divine character and genuine faith.

These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. (1 Peter 1:7)

 

SEEING THE UNSEEN

God will not only wait for us reach the goal. But God will definitely help us through every process in this life. One process that we through together with the Lord, will be equip us to get through the next process with a higher standard.

Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. (Romans 5:3-5)

So, if one day we are at a time when everything not going as we expect, the problems come and go, and the progress that we hoped runs very slow… Remember that all of it is useful to give out the best part of ourselves. Give the best response and let the Holy Spirit working through all that happened. Open the eyes of our hearts to see the unseen, that the Lord always gives the beauty in every situation, even in the darkest night.

 

Keep hoping!  “There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off” (Proverb 23:18)

    Konbanwa, Great post of you! just slightly additional opinion, besides we forget the purpose behind of our problems, oftentimes our eyes blinded by our problems, difficulties, and many other life storm so we could not see the hidden beauty. Honestly, life is so easy! why I said like that? just because in any kind of problems that we have, we already have great solutions. God has provide us such a great ways to solve it. But once again, how our reaction on it. How we allow the Holy Spirit works upon us. If it is, then the door of hope will opened widely. Kitai shite oite kudasai (Keep hoping).

    Sis Sella, just adding a bit of brother Paul comment, do we want to give the best response? In the midst of our liives storm we often trapped in our condition so we did not have senitivity to see what God has provide to us. We also often forget that there are always purposes behind what happened to us. Stunning and thoughtful post. Blessings on your ministry.

    great post but you have missed one important thing. you not talk about how to run all processes, how the way to keep persistent and tough in facing of the lives storm. it is so easy we could say that we have hope or keep hoping and we believe everything will beautiful in its time. But actually, hope is not enough to run all processes. we could put our hope in God but we also need ask God for the strength and wisdom to through it all. This is about life struggling in which we need equip us with armor of God. without it hope is only hope and we could not show the hidden beauty in our heart and soul. Well, just another opinion from me, your loyal reader. keep write good readings!

    • Dear Angie 🙂
      The key to run all processes is ” Give the best response and let the Holy Spirit working through all that happened” as i wrote in the last paragraph. Holy Spirit will lead us to His light so that we know what we have to do in every situation. He will give us everything that we need to run it process. Wisdom, strength, even miracle.
      Thank you for your attention and good input. I appreciate it. Next time i would more detail.
      Jesus bless you 🙂

    Hi Sella
    “Nothing lasts forever”, even the storms we go through. My trials are not going to last forever…..Your post was in season indeed. God has a time for everything and there is a reason for everything that we face in life. We just need to trust in Him. Thanks for a great post Sella.
