New Place of Wonder

July 28, 2018 | 8:26 am
Morning thoughts

I’m not really good with change. Being in a new place makes me feel the flutterflies (fluttering butterlies) in my stomach. A new place is unpredictable and it makes me feel uncomfortable but there are places that cannot be discovered if I don’t step in it. It will always remain unknown and scary. There’s no other way but to go there and step my foot on the ground, meet someone who’s been always on that place just like when the Little Prince did as he traveled different planets. It’s good to have a childlike character of curiosity as I go out. In a child’s shoes is a world full of wonders, transforming into something that is always new and unique. In these footsteps I am taking, I should be excited for the new place of wonder. The destination always matters because if it is a place of nourishment and growth, my feet would always come to it. ❤️

Planner Desining and Calligraphy

I was invited to do planner desining with my sister and our friends. Art materials were cluttered on our table – pretty washi tapes, calligraphy pens, colored pens/pencils, stickers and cutouts. 💖 It was fun doing this! They inspired me to practice calligraphy and to design my planner more often.

I was fond of Ate Carla’s cutouts and washi tapes!

It’s a rainy day today and I’m drinking hot milk ❤️♨️ I’ve been really craving for its creamy taste and this  makes me smile 😊

Hoping for the next days to be warmer.

Fight, Finish, Keep

 

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” – 2 Timothy 4:7

Paul knew his life was coming to an end  (2 Timothy 4:6) and said these words with full confidence. Paul knew he has lived according to the life God called him to and has held on fast to his faith. It caused me to desire a life that honors the Lord so I could say these words before my time here on earth ceases. But then the verse can not only be applied in the future but also in the present.

I realized that today, do I have the same confidence to say the words Paul did? This lead me to further questions that can be reflected upon in line with the verse:

  • Am I fighting the good fight?
  • Am I still staying in the race?
  • Am I persevering to finish the race?
  • Am I keeping the faith?

It is a heart check for me – on how I am in my current relationship with Christ and my growth in Him, and a reminder to continually be in the center of God’s will.

Do not grow weary

In the midst of doing what I was supposed to do which was to study for my exams, in the middle of the week where everything should maintain its consistency, I felt exhausted having to exert energy for the past days.

It’s difficult to move forward when the strength remaining in you is barely enough.

What encouraged me was this verse:

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. -Galatians 6:9

We are always working for something. And when we continue to keep going and doing what is worthy, there will be a sweet fruit in the end.

From whom will we get our strength?

Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strengththey shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. -Isaiah 40:30,31

 

Whether it may be in our campuses, work or journey of faith, we can always approach God for the renewal of our strength. God will sustain you and give you strength afresh. 🙂

Prayer and Fasting 2018

My heart is full and dancing in joy because of God’s great love! For the past five days, our church had an annual Prayer and Fasting – a posture of humility and dependence on God before anything else as the year starts.

“In Christ” is the theme of this year’s Fasting wherein we studied the book of Ephesians. The Book of Ephesians tells of our new identity in Christ and the life we are to live as Christians. It’s amazing how I learned that in Jesus Christ, we are blessed with every spiritual blessing, sons and daughters, chosen, forgiven, lavished with grace and sealed with the Holy Spirit. Who we believe ourselves to be will determine our actions. And this is who we are in Christ – we are loved and victorious thus we can face everyday with a confident and unshaken heart. We’ll encounter hardships this year but because God is with us (Emmanuel), we won’t falter. We hold on in His Word so we can stand firm!

I’m so grateful that I have encountered the Lord for the past five days of Prayer and Fasting ❤ And these encounters will grow as I continue to seek Him everyday!

I’d like to share to you my top 3 faith goals for the year:

  1. Spiritual revival and to experience God anew
  2. Provision for my daily needs (especially in school)
  3. To travel abroad with my family ^_^

 

Let’s seek Him for the rest of 2018 and be in faith that God hears our prayers! Don’t close your eyes for breakthroughs are coming!
