T’was a long day. Had a lovely wonderful service at Epicenter Church. It’s about 15 to 20 minutes away from our campus. The time spent singing, to praise and worship the Lord, blew us away. Had a good time with friends too over lunch and by afternoon, after running errands, it was amazing to run into friends whom I’ve been thinking of some days ago. By evening, a birthday celebration commenced.
Tiring, indeed. And now, as I sat in front of my desk, about to continue writing my paper, with the huge window welcoming the cool breeze, I can only praise God for every opportunity experienced today. The measure of one’s heart is important, to search it and find whether it has been in good standing, pleasing to our Lord’s standard for the whole day or not. I’m sure that there’s been some blunders through the day but I come back to my chair and study table, I can breathe and ponder, let my mind fly in wonder both the things my heart desires materially while acknowledging the eternal things I dearly hope for. I come to wonder and let loose my mind and fingers in writing.
I am thankful for today. Thankful for the things that I have, those that I have received. Thankful for the enough resources that are within my reach. Ultimately, I’m thankful for this eternity within my heart because I am caused to turn to the Lord, I am caused to desire to love Him more for the remaining hours to be spent on writing my paper.
I am thankful because I do not have every single thing that I have been praying for. I am thankful because where I am now is a place of intensive and upclose moulding. Here, I come to know more, He who names Himself as the Lover of my soul, King of kings and Creator of everything.
Be still and breathe. Search and ponder.
