I once asked God to give me an opportunity to live in snowy country and I did. When I was teenager; I asked again God to take me to far away with him and I found myself here in Sydney. Beautiful country with speechless beaches with incredible waves. I pray that I will never stop falling in love wit adventures with God.
Today, I pray again that God will take me to the places I have never been. If he is going with me, be patient with me, love me at my darkest, take my hands, lift up my face, hold me close to him and love me the way I needed to be loved. I will go, I am ready to move again.
… and this sweet blue waves at Bondi will always be sweetest moment to me. I thanks God for that. One day we will have to leave this place …. I value this moment. I pray you will not take granted on this precious life and beautiful things around you.
The waiting hours feels like walking on wide-spread safari somewhere out there. The destinations seem further and further away. I don’t know how you cope with the waiting hours? For me; I wake up every morning, tidy up my bed, walked out of my house like I am about to blow up the devil.
Are you stuck where you are at today while you are waiting? Waiting for a result, an answer or perhaps the bus to arrive? Perhaps some of you are secretly waiting for a friend, a lover, a family member to give you a call?
For me I am waiting for an answer from God for my next journey, a breakthrough in few areas of my life.
In this waiting hours; I’ve learned that we could either get ready or get lazy.
Some of us has been waiting for something to happen in life or in some particular situations. Your emotions are not strong enough YET so you fall backward. suddenly You getting tired of walking on that dry safari so you just picked up your remote control and turn the TVs on. You didn’t realise it was December until the post card from your mom said “Happy Christmas” Hope to see you soon.
– but I always have a belief that ” THERE IS ALWAYS AWAY OUT”. I actually don’t know how this works; but I think in the waiting hours our emotions are quite sensitive. Think about yourself as a house, and the door just opened by the winds. Anything and everything can come to you or walked out of you. This is the time; where you get easily confused.
So while you are waiting for something in life right now; a pregnancy test or whatever do not over think, let me repeat “DO NOT OVER THINK”. Do not listen to the voices that take you to the darkest valley; keep your eyes alert and open. Look up and fold your hands and pray for strength while you are waiting. Most of all take this moment as a challenge and lesson for growth in your life.
pss! While waiting, don’t just sit there on your sofa BUT GET UP, DRESS UP and BEAT THE DEVIL OUT OF YOUR WAY.
Proverbs 14:29 Whoever is patient has great understanding,
but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.
This old lady from fiji grabbed my hands and said ” this is gifted hands” and I just stood there and smiled.
With my gifted hands I’ve carried foods for pigs when I was age of 10, delivered news paper to homes even on the showy days in Hamar; carried plates at the age of 25; washed dishes, cleaned hotel rooms and looking forward to change diaper for my kids one day ( haha).
With my gifted hands I’ve stolen as a kid 200 Kyat that my mom saved for tithe in the bible. With my gifted hands I’ve pointed someone and said very hurtful things because they were mean.
Last time I stood at the lake was in 2012; looked up to the sky and told the tiny little plane to take me away from the town to somewhere far; by myself to a big island. Today; I am at the beginning of “Chapter 2” of my life. Few weeks ago I stood at the edge of the rock at Maroubra Beach, watched the waves hit the rocks and watched the clear sky and praised God for never taken Holy Spirit away from me and Jesus to saved my soul, My church “Hillsong Church” for nurturing with the living water through Christ.
With my gifted hands I am lifting up to worship God, I am reaching out to the poor, I am giving a helping hands; genuine handshakes without agendas. With my gifted hands I serve the Lord and his people at His kingdom.
Perhaps you find yourself in the middle of no where right now. You are not really sure which way to go; this way or the other way. Mary Capper; VP of Hillsong College said at City Chapel “Do you want comfort or influence?”.
SELFISHLY I wanted to stay where I am at because this is what I’ve been praying desperately for many years ago. Prides are like the ink; they covered my eyes to not to see the big picture of Gods purpose in my life.
THE PURPOSE of my life is not to serve my own desires, my decisions and my will. I am here to prepare for the unknown future. I was blind but now I see; I am here to serve the LORD Jesus; Worship God; make a decision every day to love him, forgive myself and genuinely love the other person next to me.
Fears; they are waging wars agains my prayers and FAITH. FEARS DOES NOT COME FROM GOD. Repeatedly I told myself BOLDY WALK ON THE FIRE I will not be burn down because He is with me and in me. He who is in me is STRONGER than the he is staring at me.
What do I want? I have neither plan A or B. My life is a blank page where I am allowing God to write a new beautiful story of my life. I trust him with my future and my present. I know I am on the right way; this is not highway to HELL but High way to HOME . Well I want to be one of the greatest INFLUENCER.
So what are my steps
First seek the kingdom of GOD and all things shall be added unto you [ Matt 6:33]
Say NO for now to what you wanted badly but HANG OUT with Jesus [ Matt 16:24 ]
I have plans for you DECLARES THE LORD, so SERVE others in the Waiting [ Jeremiah 29:11]
