I have so many plans for today; I thought I could not do everything altogether, but God must have put His miracles into actions because with His grace, I was actually able to do everything as I planned to. What I thought was impossible, suddenly became very possible. It is just like when everything’s falling into their right places and everything’s done at the right time. What a cool God I have. Jesus, You’re truly amazing and no words can ever express how great You are. Your Love knows no limits and boundaries, it must even be beyond the infinities.
In Romans 12: 10, it says “outdo one another in showing honor.” According to Bro. Aben , the founder of The Feast, it is proven that when you outdo one another in showing honour, the recipient will have a sense of affirmation. He or she will feel important. And when that happens, trust will follow, and your relationship will become better. The same thing applies not just in relationships, but also in almost every single human interaction there is. All persons need to feel loved, respected, and honoured. In order to make good relationship with others, one must also learn to show value and respect to his or her people.
As the verse in Philippians 2:3 says, “Don’t be jealous or proud, but be humble and consider others more important than yourselves.” This particular message in the Bible tells us that we need other people to make us feel important. It is a give-and-take relationship. When we humble ourselves, the more we can gain respect from others; and it goes on.
Our university intramural week is coming to its end. Ever since my first year in college, I seriously wanted to join a team of any sport to represent our college during the intramural sports contests. I do play various sports like badminton, basketball and softball, but I just think that I’m not that good enough to be in a sports competition. A lot of my friends already tried to persuade me, but I just could not get the courage to say yes. Next year will be my last year (hopefully), I still want to experience becoming an athlete. I want to get out of my shell, to break free from my comfort zone, and to prove to myself that I am capable of doing something great. I need to start doing what I really wanted to do in the first place, and on doing that I need to start thinking that I am good enough and my talent too. So I will put everything in God’s hand.
Lots of things happened within this semester. To me, it’s a lot to take in. So many lessons are learned and will be learned in the future. I realized that it is not just about good time management or getting things done; nor it is to be happy, to get better, to do well, or to be loved, but it is to have Jesus within you. After all, He will guide your footsteps if only you are willing to move your feet.
So after meditating for a while, I came across this quote by Robin Williams. It can be interpreted differently though. It says,
You will have bad times, but they will always wake you up to the stuff you weren’t paying attention to.
