‘You never graduate from the school of humility’. -Jeremy Yeo
This struck a thought in my mind, have I been keeping myself humble? Have I been keeping myself small in the eyes of others?
Yes, I may be good in certain things. But have I forgotten that any good in me is from Him who is seated on the throne?
Love is able to make us adjust and make certain decision.
E.g, John decided to stop smoking for the sake of Clara. Therefore, an adjustment and decision was made.
Jesus decided to die on the cross for the sake of humanity(you, me and the whole wide world). He made an adjustment and decision .
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me(Philippians 4.13).
Not some things, that thing or this thing but; All things.
Recently, I have been thinking a lot about one matter. This one matter covers some of the salient points of my life. I know it will be an arduous journey ahead but who ever governs this heart must have that iron in him(this was so intended). And when things get gruelling, I know He will be there. I can call out to Him and ask to be strengthen in Him. Remember, All things.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end(Ecclesiates 3.11). Whatever happens, He has made everything beautiful in its time and I know He will again make everything beautiful in its time.
Only about 1 year ago, I realized the importance of hard-work and putting in one’s best and to always make every effort to try one’s hardest in life. But I also know, sometimes in life, that’s that. I can only pray and depend on Jesus; The One who never fails.
All is well. (:
Currently helping a friend to 守夜(shou ye) at a funeral wake. Basically, someone or some people have to stay and watch the night at the funeral wake.
It’s 6.15am in the morning right now, and I’m having all the solemn thoughts.
We are, but flowers quickly fading.
One day here, another day gone.
Life is too short to not do the things we love. Life is too short to not love the people around us.
What was once mundane, we can miss it so much in just an instant.
Love fiercely, love radically because YOLO.
I’m gonna toll and sweat if I must, to see His kingdom be advanced.
