I had to look at my post last week to know from where should I start. Yes, that is the question I recently always ask..
Lord where do I start?
I’m happy to share that my faithful God never fails to point me to the starting line. I get impatient sometimes though. I get very eager for Him to fire the starter’s pistol (running reference when in a race.. yes I join “fun runs” and run regularly.. fyi!). Sometimes I imagine myself jogging in place saying “Lord I’m ready! Gaammeee onn!!”
Immediately I know there’s something wrong with me. I breathe. And let Him speak. He then reminds me that I always go back to unboxing Him. I fail everyday because of my futile attempt to keep take control.
Meet my sisters Luisa and Fatimah . They love to put make up on and ask me to take their pics. Of course I love to take their pictures, but am always too lazy to edit and upload them. (Took these a few days ago) Now that I am stuck at home ’cause of the weather, I had time to do this. 🙂 They must really love me to be patient while they wait for their pics. Haha!
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
My stubborn heart can’t handle to encourage others anymore. I always pray that He fills me up. Everyday, every hour, every minute and every second. Work consumes all the love in me. As if it isn’t enough that I give more than 14 hours of my day to it, it asks for more.
Books keep me sane. Aside from the bible (of course), I am reading/listening to Love Wins by Rob Bell and Desiring God by John Piper. Don’t worry my dear…
It just gives me so much joy to read. Specially now when it is all about His love that I am reading about. I pray you’re as crazy for Him as I am. 🙂
I am still adjusting to my new schedule, new role at work, new everything that our Father God is giving me… So ’til then, I guess I’ll keep my inner most thoughts on life on my journal (yes, I still keep one, where I write things.. yes write!)
😉 This little gift of writing letters to you weekly on this blog… I promise to write it with more love,maybe in a few years or so (who knows), once He’s given the go signal on this next new thing. (Hah! Try to make sense of that :p)
Instead of keeping records of wrongs.. Let me just keep records of love! 🙂
