In The Garden

I’m not sure about you but ever since I have to return to working on site at the office (although on alternate weeks), I think about my garden quite frequently. I usually wake up very early in the morning when it’s still dark and a former classmate once teased me about appearing like a thief wandering in the garden with the torchlight from my mobile phone. I frequently wondered how it was like when the first couple walked with the Lord in Eden.

2022 isn’t only the beginning of a new year. It’s also the start of my new role in another team at the company. The frequently uttered “Lord, save me…” prayer took a few years to show the results. Maybe it was already in progress but God was building my character, and getting the other side ready for me.

It’s not only a number added to 2021 but that number will also be added to our age. What are your plans for 2022? I’m almost too afraid to make plans because most of mine didn’t materialize due to multiple lockdowns. One thing I know is I plan to slow down and live. Another year older, another year closer to eternal life. (I’m not being morbid, but this world is just getting darker.)

Bible Verse

39 But we are not like those who turn away from God to their own destruction. We are the faithful ones, whose souls will be saved.

Hebrews 10:39 (NLT)

One Day Closer

My favourite time of the day is early in the morning when it’s dark and quiet. I often stand at the backyard looking up at the sky. Being a fan of astronomy since I was a child, I could easily recognize the Orion constellation. When I look at the sky, I wonder when that day will be when we get called home; sometimes wondering if I would suddenly fly up.

I’m not sure about you but the longer I live, the more I look forward to my eternal home and earthly things become less important.

I imagine on the day when I get to see the Lord face to face, I will have so many questions for Him.

Bible Verse

“However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself.[a] Only the Father knows.

Matthew 24:36 NLT
