Some call it “forest bathing”, I just call it getting away from it all. I was amazed by the beautiful view so much that I totally forgot that there is no signal. It was only until that moment when I wanted to upload a photo that I realized that I couldn’t. But that’s good. Sometimes you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of life to reflect.
When I was up in the hill, I wondered how it was like when Adam and Eve walked the garden with the presence of God. I have to admit that workload does at times take me away from spending time with God.
As I walked along The Habitat, I’m reminded of how good God is and I wondered how it was like, on the first day of creation. If what I saw was already beautiful, it must’ve been spectacular in the very beginning. While I remind myself to be a good steward, I also want to be careful never to elevate creation above the Creator. If you don’t believe in Genesis and the The Creation, you can tune out from this page now. But thanks for dropping in.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth
I had a dream last night. In that dream, I went to England with the intention to meet up with someone I used to know. I was invited to their family get-together but I never really got to sit next to him to talk. One of his relatives even took me to his old school to look around. Before I knew it, I had to leave and I kept trying to contact my friend. I wanted to ask him if I could at least give him a hug and say good bye before I left. Then I woke up.
I believe God was telling me that my heart is still troubled with unresolved emotions and past episodes with no closure. There are many things in life which we may never fully understand, especially with our finite thinking capacity. However, someday when we see the Lord face to face, we will be able to ask Him all the why’s. Perhaps by then it won’t matter anymore. Before we get there, praise the LORD! Every day is a new day, and therefore a fresh start. Blessed Easter!
25 Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life.[a] Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. 26 Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die. Do you believe this, Martha?” (John 11:25-26 NLT)
