Social media hype on this Heart Month is all around us, but I hope this wouldn’t blind us with the gift of what we have, the simplicity of life and the different love languages we receive in our lives from people.
So here’s my entry:
I guess Love is as simple as drinking a glass of water, yet so vital, essential and refreshing.
It is about celebrating the gift of life and the privilege of having one another as friend. Beyond any emotions, it is a decision to fight for the good of the other and of one another.
One will never truly know when it lasts because people come and go whether in this life or in the after life. Yet what matters is not what you will do tomorrow but what you do today.
We may fear tomorrow but doing what you can do today to love and care for the person the Lord had entrusted to you will give you peace and joy within yourself for it is the only thing within your control.
And above all, it is the Lord who makes things grow. So as you water the seed of love, entrust it to the Lord, the one who makes all things possible and the one who makes all things work together for the good of those who love him who has been called according to His purpose.:)
The past days I feel like I was chasing time. As a song in Lion King goes “there is more to do than can ever be done, more to see than can ever be seen,”
And just like that there will be moments in our lives that we don’t feel enough. While it is good to do our best, it is also helpful to acknowledge our limitations. Each of us has different circumstances. Even when you fail at times, yet when you know in your heart that you did your best, learn to brush judgment and frustrations aside and just keep doing your best.
Stay determined. Stay ambitious.
Just because people or even ourselves belittle us for what we cannot do and what we do not have, this is not a measure of what we can and what we have. And there is more we can do than the failures and frustrations that others see and what we see in ourselves. There is more that God has in store for us than we currently have. Everyday is a new day. Do not get stucked in the past and the mold that circumstances and people may try to put you in. You are in better control on what you can do and how to respond. Choose to stay in the course and be determined not to prove others wrong but to challenge your self to be at your best. And most importantly, enjoy the journey as you open yourself to more possibilities.
You see, we might not always get what we want. We may not always be where we want to be. But never lose your determination why you do what you are doing. Go back to your purpose and connect to the Source. He enables.
Success sometimes is not always achieving our goals or the goals set by others, sometimes it is along the journey on how we add value in the lives of others and how we put our heart in what we do. Success is not always measured by what we see and know.
Success is measured in terms of the treasures in our heart. And we learn to store treasures in our heart as God molds our character in our journey. Success and failures can go together and even if our lives seemed a failure at times as compared to others as we see it, it is for us to rely on the grace of God for greatness rather on our own.
In line with this, I am reminded with this verse:
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition but always consider others better than yourself. Think not only of your own interest but the best interest of others”
You can be determined and ambitious but it is also important to know the reasons behind our ambition and aspirations. May His glory be our top priority. Everything comes from Him❤
Sending some Love Letters to the wind and the sky so it can reach the ends of the earth:)
This writing is not perfect in words as I write it spontaneously without using a liner beneath the paper and without anything to copy.
I wrote it spontaneously just as thoughts flow in my mind. I notice that I get conscious when I put something beneath to line the paper. So I decided to write it without anything underneath and just write spontaneously wherever my thoughts take me. And I just wrote memory verses which I kept in my heart, memory verses of God’s wonderful love for us❤
May this work of art written with a big heart as inspired by the Maker encourage us to love one another. However the words may no longer readable. So just remember the main message:)
“We love because He first loved us.”❤
Happy Hearts Day everyone. May His love continue to inspire us. 🌻
