this week has been CRAZYYYYYY!!! i have 3 more work days to go before 2 weeks break but i feel like it will drag on.
but in the midst of busyness, i am reminded everyday of the scripture from ephesians 5:8, “for you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. walk as children of light…”
when things get hectic, my 1st instinct sometimes is to snap back at the people who irritate me. but the Spirit has saved me time and time again with the conviction. last saturday, i was sitting in our new church building and drinking in the sight of such beautiful chapel. the place was spacious. and in the middle of the sanctuary, there was a huge wooden cross…as tall as the roof…standing with its glory and humility. and i thought…i am also the Lord’s temple. i want Jesus Christ to stand in the midst of my heart and my soul just like this wooden cross is the focal point of this church.
even though i was tired and grumpy, my heart was quieted…and i gave thanks. my flesh will never win as long as the Spirit lives in me. in this life, i want to be the light and the salt to those around me.
