If God granted us humans and “super powers”, it would be the power of our spoken words. Just like how God spoke the whole universe into being, and how Jesus’ words allowed the blind to see and the dead to live, we too have been given this power from God.
Finally, after 2 months of being MIA, I want to say that I’ll be blogging regularly again, but that’s just not gonna happen :/ My parents are moving back to Taiwan at the end of July and I’ll be moving out on my own, so we’re all busy packing. But hey, it’s still summer vacation for me, and I’m going to enjoy it to the fullest, which means beaches, theme parks, more beaches, and just fun in general. First escape: Miami.
Certain things have been happening in my life recently. Some good, but mostly not so good. It’s as if my life is falling apart bit by bit, but I have no idea why, and I’m clueless as to how to stop it. Everything was perfect a few months ago, and I can’t help to wonder: what happened? However, this passage I read in my daily devotions gave me the answers:
Today at church, the message was about confidence. The speaker asked us what the source of our confidence was. Nice clothes? Good looks? A nice car? Having a boyfriend or girlfriend? Good grades? Or all of the above?
You have a fire burning for God, you show passion for Him in your prayers and speech, and you seem as if you are as close to Him as you can be. While I’m happy for you and all, I can’t help but ask, why are you so quick to judge others?
I was away this weekend in NYC with my boyfriend, his roommate, and his roommate’s girlfriend, and let’s just say that our getaway did not go as planned…in an interesting way. I barely got any sleep during the trip, thanks to all the crazy things that went down, so I ended up embarrassing myself in a web conference with my coworkers. But back to the trip, let’s just say that there were many lessons learned:
I’m a fretter/worrier. I’m also quick to anger. Both of these are dangerous things that could lead to sin. I’m sure most of you already know about the anger one, because when one is angry, one often says/does stupid things they will regret when they’ve calmed down.
