The Wrestlings Along the Narrow Path {my very first ebook and it’s FREE!}

If my blog were a classroom and I were the teacher (since I am the one who writes :D),  I am also the no. 1 student. No. 1 in that, I am the one who needs most to learn the lessons I write about and who needs most to be constantly reminded. Truth be told, my blog is my classroom more than a place to encourage and inspire others to walk closer with our Savior Jesus Christ. It is like a public journal chronicling my journey of faith, the ups and downs, the victories and failures, and the many valuable lessons learned along the way. They are all written here to record and preserve them and remind myself of the lessons as much as share them to the world.

The past months, there had been a voice whispering, “Why don’t you write an ebook?” My answer was always this, “What will I write about that I cannot cram into a blog post, or a series of posts? They had written every possible topic I can think of there’s just nothing left to write about.” When the thought persisted, I said, “Okay, I’ll just convert my book Walking Along the Narrow Path into an ebook and share it free on my blog.”

But that wasn’t to be the case. One morning, the Holy Spirit was guiding me what to write, and every morning after that during my morning devotions, He would be filling me with words and verses. I would write feverishly in my journal and the words became sentences and paragraphs and these in turn developed into chapters. And The Wrestings Along the Narrow Path was birthed – all praises to my Savior!

An excerpt from the Introduction page:

“But I believe that these wrestlings are what will bring us to the end of our journey. It is through them that we learn to take a tighter grip on our Savior. For as we wrestle our way to a more intimate relationship with Him, there is a need to put away every obstacle. As long as we have the will and steadfast faith, we will stay the course and continue to advance. For, consider the people of the world who may not have the same struggles as we have. That is because they are not in the pursuit of holiness.

That is exactly the reason why we do wrestle in our walk of faith: because we follow the way of holiness, and whatever hinders or diverts us, we have been given wisdom to discern and the spiritual strength to free ourselves no matter the cost.

In my own walk of faith, I found out that my archenemy in my pursuit of holiness is myself. (I can perceive heads nodding). I believe this is true to many. This has become a familiar battle cry, “Oh God, save me from myself!”

In this little book, I share with you my own struggles, raw and sometimes shameful. But my Redeemer covers me. I take up topics that most people, even Christians, would rather keep hidden somewhere deep in the crevices of their hearts and minds. Some would also prefer to work them out privately with their Savor, and that is what we must be doing. But here, I open up my heart and bare my soul with the purpose of encouraging you and letting you know that you’re not alone in your own struggles, and that, from the One who called us and saved us.”

He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. (Rev. 21:7)

Thank you for your presence here.

My gratitude list ~ the things I’m thankful to the Lord for; continuing to count His blessings:

61. The song sung during altar call on Sunday service; it reminded me of our hard but blessed days in Pampanga Fasting House. It was such a glorious song and the Lord has touched a chord in me once again.

62. The hunger in my soul visiting again; this craving for more of God. It is always good.

63. The need to step back and revel in the silence. (More on this on next post).

64. Quietly walking through the Book of Matthew and eager to turn each page expecting the Lord to reveal Himself anew!

65. The inspiration to tend the soul and home.

I might be linking up with these lovely blogs.

Journey with Jesus,
