Tweak Post After the Long Silence

a month and a half of silence. and i have learned many great lessons. God brought me down to the darkest valley so that i would see Him as He truly is – not just a loving and kind Father but also the fearful and almighty God.

for the first 6 months, i thought everything would go well. i was overridden with pride. i assumed that my job in a new position would go smoothly just because i had the qualified skills. i thought that my relationship would be fresh and exciting. all imagination…

i have discovered more of my ugliness than i wanted to. but it was a necessary process. suffering isn’t always too bad. it opened my eyes to a new perspective of myself.

now the relationship i thought working out so well has come to a long pause…and maybe it is the end. and work…i didn’t pass the probation period. thankfully, i am given another chance for another 6 months.

lessons learned.

i don’t know what i’m going to do yet if i don’t pass this probation. but for now i know that pride finds no place in a life of a Christian. God hates pride. and He uses every single way He can do to get rid of it in every nano factor in our lives.

    Missed you Mink! Remember we are all works in progress. It does sometimes take reality to wake us up to what God is saying. I have been there lots of times. And for some reason( I am stubborn) I keep having to relearn somethings. Love you and will continue to pray for you and the staff in Thailand.
