Still again, on Sunday, Ps Jeff's sermon spoke to me once again. I think God has a timely way of reminding people of things and re-emphasizing on matters that He wants to learn and grow in. Ps Jeff's illustration on "the atmosphere that you bring with you..." certainly struck a chord in my heart. I was definitely convicted that the atmosphere that I bring with me might not be the best one. I should continue to inspire others to be joyful and loving, not with negative thoughts or feelings.
So that gave me a good enough reason to work on the "atmosphere" in Tricia.
In fact, why am I still dissatisfied? I should be more than glad right? I have friends who stood by me when I was down, discouraged, unwell etc... I have a shepherd that gives to me more than the usual of other shepherds. I have sheep that cares for me. I have friends that really want to help me to grow. I have all that I need. And most importantly, I have a God that loves me and cares for me, forgives me when I do wrong, accepts me when I am weak, helps me to fulfill my potential and gives me the best that I can handle.
Shouldn't I be glad and thankful?
It is really good to reflect and think back about life. What else should I ask for but that God's favor to be upon me everyday of my life.
Yes, I will trust and believe God for His greatest blessings in me.
