Daily Digest #150

Seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. —Colossians 3:1

Just the other night, I remembered a very dear person and earnestly prayed for her. As the Scripture says: "Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you." -- Col 3:12-13. Then last night, I received the most amazing news! My prayer has been answered, and much, much more than I wished for! It's just the perfect birthday present :D

Indeed, God gives us everything we need. He showers us with His abundant blessings -- our families, our friends, our jobs, our health, our neighborhood, our community. Many times we thought He hasn't been listening to our cries and answering our prayers. But He always does! Even the things we have not thought of yet, He already gives. Many times does He provide the solution ahead of our problems. In the highest and lowest points of our lives, we realize how things work out for the best, only if we choose to see. Just the same when everything seems boring and uneventful. We tend to become restless and disheartened. But I learned that it is His way of reminding us to sit back, keep praying, obediently follow His will and patiently wait.... because He's surely got something cookin' up there :D

For this, let us pray. May we never lose hope, and believe that we will be made perfect in His way and time. May we always be faithful to Him, as He has been to us. May we ask God to cleanse our hearts. May we seek His will, and not our own. May we always count our blessings. May we allow Jesus Christ to live in us, and make our Heavenly Father smile. Pray always.
