My little space for my spiritual reflections.
A hiding place from the noise of the world. My humble love letters to Him.
I was standing in line yesterday while waiting to register for my IELTS paper yesterday and I came across this verse which instantaneously took away all the jitters in my heart.
For the Lord gives wisdom;
from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds success in store for the upright,
he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, (Proverbs 2:6, 7 NIV)
And I have absolute faith in my results because I believe when I was in the exam hall, it was just me God and the paper and I felt like I breezed through it. The topics that came out were much to my favor considering that was what I had been anxious about prior to the exam. I’m hoping by his divine grace I would get at least a 8.0 and the British council scholarship. :)
My path in your hands
Tenth Ave North - You Are More (by sonymusicgospel)
One of my favourite songs. Everytime I doubt my worth or things don’t work out, I always play this song to remind myself that I’m more than I think I am.
"He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault"
- Ephesians 5:27, NLT
I haven’t had the best walk with God for the most part of my life. I wavered, weaved in and out of faith or treated it like some help hotline only when I needed it (or desperately needed a cab or the rain to stop.)
But lately, I don’t know what happened. I had a strange stirring in my heart about 2 months back and I picked up that dusty old bible I had in my drawer and I continued reading till today. And each day I did, somehow I was drawn more and more into it. I used to resent it. I previously treated it like a necessary chore I had to do every single day. And I would just do it for the sheer sake of doing it. But, I was switched off inside. I wasn’t listening.
Something obviously changed in me from the day I started trying to reconnect back with God. Somehow my values started changing and I saw the world a lot more differently. I started having this indescribable peace in me that got me through the tough period I was facing.
So I guess this new diversion of a blog was made to help me meditate on the different lessons I learn and the overwhelming joy when I see blessings manifest in my life. It’s more of a personal spiritual journal but if anyone swings by and it interests you, do feel free to join me. =)
