It was already decided before my own dawn.
But in the end, does it really make a difference what anyone does? I’ve had a good look at what God has given us to do—busywork, mostly. True, God made everything beautiful in itself and in its time—but He’s left us in the dark, so we can never know what God is up to, whether He’s coming or going. I’ve decided that there’s nothing better to do than go ahead and have a good time and get the most we can out of life. That’s it—eat, drink, and make the most of your job. It’s God’s gift.
Beautifully crafted, no truer words were spoken to me today.
The remedy to envy is this: contentment.
If I were to stand trial for the last year, I’d be guilty of that failure. The failure to see the beauty in each season God has granted me.
Yes, it was painful, yeah it was hard. But it was also the most defining season for me as a person.
Without the last year I wouldn’t have come to terms with the real meaning of forgiveness.
To forgive means, in totality. It means I remember your grievance towards me no more. I have not yet understood the full meaning of it, but I have the greatest example who laid His life on the cross.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
It was decided, before my conception that I would walk a path of a higher standard.
Hence, I will strive.
He has justified me for this calling.
I belong to Him, He has first claim on my life.
Why? Because He loves me. Oh, how He loves me.
My debt has been paid in full.
On a side note: Hair dryers help get candle wax of walls.
Thinking of: Steven Furtick, Morticia Addams, midnight karaoke, candle-wax everywhere, Hillsong’s Man of Sorrows and The Book Thief.
