In a world full of “instant”, it’s a bit of struggle to live the virtue of patience and appreciate the beauty in waiting. That at some point in our lives, we may even find ourselves rushing into love hence, getting stuck in a wrong relationship and missing God’s will for us.
Next to Bible reading and journaling, I usually find myself carving out time for books. There are so many good books and grateful to friends who share with and give me such beautiful reads. I’m just finished with “The Purpose-Driven Life” by Rick Warren which is a really, really good devotional. Let me know if you want to borrow my copy! *wink*
Part of accepting Jesus as my Savior is learning to let go of “my ways”, committing to stop overthinking everything and surrendering all to God. It doesn’t mean I no longer have dreams and care about my future, but approaching God and asking anything according to His will (1 John 5:14) truly matter now as He knows His plans for me, plans that won’t harm me but will give me a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).
As we cherish the season with gift-giving, family time, everything “new” and celebrations here and there, may we also take delight in the true meaning of Christmas, pray and thank God for His greatest gift of all – JESUS.
Merry Christmas, Dearests!
