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)

Living With Awareness

As a follower of Christ, what does it mean for you, to know that God the Holy Spirit resides in you? Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. (1 For 6:19)

Whether or not you remember to wear your cross before you went out doesn’t change the truth that He lives in you. Therefore glorify the Lord with your body.

Additionally, God will never leave us. (Hebrews 13:5) Does it make you more confident? Do you feel safer? I do.

Knowing God is with me makes me braver and more confident. During some of my hard times in the past, I recall my pastor’s words, “everything will be all right.” I guess in many situations, we don’t understand most of the times when we are going through the tough situation but it’s usually in hindsight that we begin to understand.

Bible Verse

And we know that God causes everything to work together[a] for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

Romans 8:28 (NLT)
