Faith Is Our Light
A Faithful Heart
God measures your success not just by results but by the Faithfulness of your Spirit.
The worries of this life, the temptation of wealth, and many other evil desires keep the teaching from growing and producing fruit in their lives.
Would you consider someone highly successful who was conceived out of wedlock?
Who was born into a poor family? Who lost his father at an early age? Who was looked down on because of his race? Who was a simple manual laborer? Who was from a small town that was barely a dot on the map? who was scorned by the religious and political leaders of his day? Who was arrested and imprisoned? Who was executed as a criminal?
Jesus, from an obscure country and city at the edge of the greatest kingdom in the world of its day, was all those things--and yet He changed the world.
Jesus set aside all the trappings of worldly success in order to bring glory to His Heavenly Father (John 10:17).
He even warns His followers that loving Him may result in persecusion (Matthew 10:17), loss of family,and even death (Luke 21:16)
But He also assures us that there is no greater reward than doing the will of the Father in heaven (Matthew 16:27).If you are discourage with some of the results of your lablor, remember that God spells success differently than the rest of the world.
He spells it F-A-I-T-H-F-U-L-N-E-S-S.There's nothing wrong with experiencing the kind of success that the world recognizes. Paul says, "In all the work you are doing, work the best you can"(Collossians:323). That will lead to accomplishments.But if the choice before you is the applause of the people whom you call as FRIENDS, than the applause of heaven, and your loveones, only one reward is worth pursuing.
I personally tried to please everybody in everyway. I am not trying to do what is only good for me and my spirit, but what is good for most people I've met in real life and through the net.
To share something greatly changed them to be a better person is what matter most eventhough to some people look at it negatively.
Don't worry if happens... someone in your life despised, and accusing you for doing something you never did. **** That will test how strong your love, trust, and faithfulness. Working harder to prove your innocence is an indications of authenticity as person.
Don't work too hard if all your motives may results pain, sadness, and regrets, that will disbanned from your loveones. PROMISES:
...make great those who serve willingly...bless those who work hard for the welfare of his family,friends, and the needy....bless those who commit their work to him. ....NEVER BLESS THOSE WHO LOVE AND WORKED HARD FOR ANYONE'S MOTIVES TO HARM SOMEONE.

FRIENDS WE NEVER KNOW, BELIEVE ME, WHEN WE HAVE SUCCEEDED BEST.
