i am reciting this scripture from philippians 4:13 daily:
“i can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
life is in a swift blurry motion. and i am reaching out my hands to grasp at least one tangible moment per day. let me tell you, it is not easy.
with this month, december, being the last month i am in the role o f a tour and visit specialist, there is much to be done. yui and i have a tour from australia coming in 7 days…and things are not so finalized. – -” i fret and pray and fret and pray…with the only hope that Christ will bring about the results He has in mind.
i will also have to be prepared and get oriented for my new role – field communication specialist – that i will start in january. there are a lot of details to take in. and i am dreading it. i can only hope that through the orientation sessions and photography lessons, i will be able to remember as much as i can by God’s mercy. but i will have to keep in mind too that God’s grace is sufficient for me even on the days i fail.
then there is the christmas program at church on the 19th. as i told you earlier, i participate in the dance and a skit (that i still have no idea about). the degree of excitement is high. i am on the verge of my emotions everyday. i don’t know whether i should laugh, cry, go crazy and get stressed.
but i am stoked for the end of the year trip with some of the youth members at church. i am tagging along with them to their hometown, umpang district in tak province…and hopefully spending some meaningful time with God and cultivating relationship with these friends.
the scripture from psalm 46:10 comes to my mind as i reflect on my current circumstances,
“be still and know that i am God. i will be exalted among the nations. i will be exalted in the earth.”
being still requires submission, trust and contentment. that is a difficult part. but that is the way to go, isn’t it? and how can i not be still…when He is the One who knows it all…and the One who deserves to be exalted among the nations and in the earth.
this realization is my tangible moment. i may not be able to grasp a lot of things from my daily life but this reckoning of the God-Man…this knowledge…humbles me…and gives me the reason to keep on living and serving. i am grasping the Truth.
