This article is about forgiveness, its part of my recent problems, if you’re not comfortable with it, please have a moment to read through. You can find artists like Kendrick Lamar, BewhY, and Social Club Misfits on this posts, but please hang on and read through the bible verse, I hope it will be such a useful content on your life. I’m not a perfect person, and I’m also a human but I want to help people who are on the same situation like me, who’s family is a little bit dysfunctional. But the think is I’m still here, because God telling me so, that my job isn’t done yet.
Matthew 5:39-48“But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. “If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. “Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two.
“Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you. “You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR and hate your enemy.’ “But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. “For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? “If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? “Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
Lately I have a tough decisions on giving myself a time, I asked myself what is forgiveness ? Why, if God knew that I’m going to have a difficult family to deal with (my dad) but to forgive you really need God’s help. Its not an easy tasks for us to forgive, but let us remember today that our saying is part of our worships in life.
“My words will never be as strong as God’s word. All I am is just a vessel, doing His work.”- Kendrick Lamar
The song War Cry by the Christian hip hop artist Social Club Misfits I thought by now I would get it His love for me is unmeasured you can see the bible verse Ephesians 3 : 18-19
May have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
So means no matter how big or small is our sin is we’re still sinners, aren’t we all ? so I think I just need to pray more, and discussing what should I do about forgiving my dad. Because no matter how big is our sin, actually God himself still loves us, you can see the grace that we’re a believers. You can see another line Was paralyzed by depression But heaven and earth came together And You came to my rescue if you don’t know about me, I just want to be really involving in church in the last 1.5 years. But God pulled me back to came back to His way, but I believe that if everyone’s really let God, came through to your doors you’ll be find a way even if its in the darkest hours of your time. Right now its not my position for me to able to say I could say “I forgive my dad”. Right now I’m fulled up with hatred but I need to stop where the line The grace He gave us, amazing A love that could conquer the hatred it recited the verse 2 Corinthians 13 : 14
You are special, boy and girl do remember Let’s raise your body Love yourself You’re much precious than you think please tell yourself that. My image resembles God’s greatly, I’m a son of God I’m a sculptor’s masterpiece. This isn’t true just for me, but for you we need to stop telling that ourselves are lame, scumbag or anything that the worst thing that you can ever imagine. The reason if we told ourselves that we can’t be the joy for other people. If we can’t accept ourselves we also dissed God right ? and its not the worship that we’re supposed to do. Although the song is in Korean, there is English translation here. Today I learnt it in the hard way, its definitely hard to forgive someone else, especially someone that really close to you ie : your family. In the bible
1Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2“Honor your father and mother” (which is the first commandment with a promise), 3“that it may go well with you and that you may be long-lived on the earth.”a
4Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger; instead, bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
Hence either your dad makes you angry or not its already part of God to judge not us, I learned that violence will bring no good for both parties. It is my mistakes to hit him, because I’m very mad, but after few minutes I realised that I shouldn’t do it, why ? because we’re all sinners, he’s not my “real” dad because God is our real Father, all of the things that we have right now its just a gift from God for a while, later He will judge us accordingly and fairly.
Kendrick Lamar is one of my favourite artist so far, because he’s not afraid to tell what he’s believe in. There are the lines ;If I just keep the faith I know You’ll be right there Sometimes it may not seem that You are there But You’re there all you need is faith, we need to believe that God always there for us. On Viceland Kendrick told how an old lady helped him to know about God. I think from what I learnt is that, you don’t have to be a preacher in order to make someone change. I think simple words, and love to others it what makes us Christians, and people can see God, Jesus Christ through us when we care for someone else.
“was we saved, we like no..she was like accepting God, Jesus Christ in your heart.”
“has a little bit deeper than mentality, but morals in your heart. And believes some other than a pistol”
Closing line is that what I did was wrong, because what I did to my dad is a violence and I didn’t do what I supposed to do, I’m a human and I should be build up more of my relationship with God, rather than relying on myself. Maybe I hope one day I could show what grace really helped me. Our words is part of our worship, if we don’t really do it..we need to questions ourselves, even me, I need to do it as well. Our generations is part of the generations of lack of identity, even me. Maybe I don’t really open my heart that much, but please don’t do fighting on solving a problem, you’ll just hurt yourself more.
