Murphy’s law at its finest

Lately I’ve been experiencing Murphy’s law a lot.

“Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong”

Things that are completely out of my control at least, like scanner breaking down, recent medical sicknesses/conditions, black screen of death on my main laptop, speeding ticket at the wrong moment at the wrong time.

And I thought I would expect these things, but obviously, now I know I can’t expect what I don’t know. 

Still, “I will bless the Lord at all times.” Psalms 34:1

Singing and listening to some praise songs remind me of God’s goodness and how He makes everything work together for my good. Even though I’m living on water, Jesus is always there to pick me up.

But seek first his kingdom and righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough troubles of its own.

This verse is not saying there will be no troubles, in fact, it says there will be trouble, but it is teaching how to deal with the troubles that exist. “Do not worry”

I think if there’s anything I’m good at, it would be not worrying, not because I’m ignorant, but I’ve been submerged into God’s provision and my body is dripping wet with this reality, although there are somethings I am concerned about, I do not need to think about it over and over again. I have no need to worry, for God is in control.

Though I’m expecting more unexpected things to happen in the near future, I’ll still be “joyful always” because of what Jesus did for me.

 

 

Everything works together

For my good, God makes it so.

Definitely even more convinced to go to mission.

I kept getting shot at by Satan, even though I already committed, second thoughts came from no where and people who worry.

Isn’t a person’s eternity more important than me getting a job?

Isn’t it emergency that people are going to die without knowing Jesus rather than me getting a secure income?

What can I give up to fulfill this commission Jesus gave to me?

What can I deny to carry the cross daily and follow him?

“Therefore take up the shield of faith and quench the arrows of the evil one”

Consider it quenched.

Thanks to God who directly reveals that and boosts my faith. 

I’m getting closer and closer to Philippians 1:21 

To live is to Christ and to die is to gain.

I even have a will ready on one of my google doc (nonlegally binding cuz I haven’t had any witnesses nor signature on it), that’s how I prepared. Am I fully prepared? Time will tell.

So now I bid adieu for now.

Lately I’ve been having an overflow of emotion and feelings I just have to keep writing, expect stormy weather ahead.
