Now, why wouldn’t this good feeling stay,
Being too tired beyond words; not a good thing,
Loosing this isn’t not what I’d expect especially in this good times,
So where have all this good went to?
This sums up what my breakthrough weekend #2 was like.
A Day of Reckoning Coming
12 For the Lord of hosts will have a day of reckoning
Against everyone who is proud and lofty
And against everyone who is lifted up,
That he may be abased.
13 And it will be against all the cedars of Lebanon that are lofty and lifted up,
Against all the oaks of Bashan,
14 Against all the lofty mountains,
Against all the hills that are lifted up,
15 Against every high tower,
Against every fortified wall,
16 Against all the ships of Tarshish
And against all the beautiful craft.
17 The pride of man will be humbled
And the loftiness of men will be abased;
And the Lord alone will be exalted in that day,
18 But the idols will completely vanish.
19 Men will go into caves of the rocks
And into holes of the ground
Before the terror of the Lord
And the splendor of His majesty,
When He arises to make the earth tremble.
20 In that day men will cast away to the moles and the bats
Their idols of silver and their idols of gold,
Which they made for themselves to worship,
21 In order to go into the caverns of the rocks and the clefts of the cliffs
Before the terror of the Lord and the splendor of His majesty,
When He arises to make the earth tremble.
22 Stop regarding man, whose breath of life is in his nostrils;
For why should he be esteemed?
So the story goes, I got hired and would be starting work on the 21st January! It is going to be a big milestone in life as it’s an industry I’ve always dreamt of working for, not that it is any glamourous but you know I really appreciate a good bunch of creative people who takes pride in visual solving!
There are so many things that I could be thankful for:
– God for opportunities, sticking by me even when I was close to ignoring Him, answering 101 (rude) questions that I had, door openings and sending wonderful friends to me. My prayer is that you continue to keep me rooted and close to You! As I celebrate this opportunity, I pray that it would be a skill to give glory to You!
– Mom for being so understanding! Thankfully her nags weren’t that constant and she knew that I wasn’t have a great time either, so THANKS Mom for knowing when to stop and when to nudge me!!
– People/Friends for their encouragements, constant support, telling me to be confident of myself, for listening to my rants, food treats (breakfast, lunch, dinner; you name it, they did it) so that I wouldn’t go hungry and free rides home (at least I didn’t need to walk home when my Ezlink card was -$2)
You know who you’ll are, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!
So this concludes my very first CYAN Breakthrough weekend which whizzed past very quickly and it wasn’t as heavy laden as I thought it might have been, which is a good thing. I think the Lord knows how unprepared I was for this BTW; He gently nudges me and picks me up subtly without rocking my world upside down.
Coming into BTW, I had this terrible thinking of how much the Lord wouldn’t have loved me because of my defiance towards Him or even stopped wanting to know Him more. But the Lord was reminding me of why and how much he has loved me and it pains His heart to even know that I might have forsaken Him and I’m glad it was a temporal phase.
Prior to BTW, I deliberately took a social media fast which I felt that it was distracting me too much which I must say it was a good break and had the chance to get back into proper reading! We should all do this once a while, purging what’s not necessary and taking up good reading material.
“The heavens declare YOUR greatness
The oceans cry out to YOU
So I’ll join with the earth and I’ll give my praise to YOU!”
Trying to stick to a routine proves to be tougher than I thought but I remember a friend once said that it takes at least 3 months or rather I MUST set aside 3 months to do a ‘task’ regularly before it gets into the system.
It’s only my 3rd day and I’m struggling with distractions of all sorts! Before I become distracted (again), I should really get myself back to finish reading those articles.
