Sometimes in life when you sense God just elevating you up up up to a new level of victory and greater glory, almost immediately, the devil starts throwing things at you. The devils starts to attack other areas in your life to divert your attention away from what DaddyGod is doing in your life. He attacks you and tries to bring you down down down.
It does get tough at times to keep your eyes on DaddyGod cos you ask “I thought God was elevating me to a whole new level of victory and now why are all these things happening all at once? I seem to be losing friends, my relationships seem to be rocky, my family problems keep getting worse..”
But you know what, recognise that all these “problems” are merely the devil’s desperate attempts to steal your focus away from what God is doing in your life, to make you obsessed with what YOU can do to fix all these problems.
Beloved, chin up, stand firm! Stop focusing on the “problems”. Keep your eyes on DaddyGod and the new level of greater glory that He has already brought you to! As you choose to fix your eyes on what DaddyGod is doing, you will realise that all those “problems” will start to fade away.
Choose to trust Him Choose to keep your eyes on Jesus Choose to not let your joy be taken away Choose to not be wavered by your circumstances Choose to believe that DaddyGod is in control. Always has, always will.
Psalms 28:7 (NLT) "The lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving."
whao, it has been awhile hasn’t it? five months since I last posted and boy has quite a fair bit of things happened.
"A boy who plays the guitar, writes poems, takes photographs, sings, writes stories, takes videos, plays an instrument. A boy that is tall, slim, handsome, buff, tan, big eyes, cute smile, nice hair, wears spectacles. A boy that is angmoh, chinese, mixed."
These are the things ninety-five percent of girls look for or hope for in a guy. Not everything listed there of course, just a combination of those attributes that she feels suits her best.
As different as I had thought I was from the average girl, turns out I’m not. Just like all ninety-five percent of girls out there, I realised that I look out for these things too.
"So that he can write me songs, sing to me, play for me, photograph me, write stories and poems about me, film our memories down, so that he has nice features and my kids will be good-looking."
No single guy can meet all these requirement we have, and I suppose that’s the adventure of life. But I really do wonder who He’ll be, where I will meet Him, when I will meet Him, whether He will meet my ‘requirements’ or whether He’ll be the exact opposite. Only time will tell. I gave myself four more years.
I really wonder who He is..
And then the alternative thought creeps in. No, i do not believe that to be true.
“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.”—Romans 12:1-2 MSG (via treadingdepths)
