Grateful

Am grateful for all the opportunities given and blessed with choices to make
Though it may not seems to be the sweetest of all, for now
Yet I'm very sure no decision was made with a mistake
Every move we make is part of the journey to learn
A journey that mold us to be wiser in mixing the right colour to paint our dreams

Groan and sigh may be heard sometimes
Why waste the time to frown and make life miserable, every second will only move even slower
Laugh and sing along each part
Draw a smiley on the calender each day, share some lame jokes and make another person laugh
Have more tears of joy rather tears of misery
Because that's when you really had a laugh, good for health too
Dont wanna mess with your mascara? Then put on water-proof mascara, hahaa!

I still vividly remember the advice given before I migrated from my comfort pond to the sea
Be gentle with speech and actions, treat others as your own brothers & sisters, serve the Boss, do not give up easily (have perseverance), look at the bigger picture, always give thanks with the little we have & received, ...

Some verses my cell group has been sending to encourage one another, let me now pass it on.
A gentle answer turns away wrath; but a harsh word stirs up anger. Proverbs 15:1
Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Trust in the Lord with all your hearts & lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall never permit the righteous to be moved. Psalm 55:22
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want, I can do everything through Him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:12-13
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Romans 8:37
Do not quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools. Ecclesiastes 7:9
But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. 1 Timothy 6:6-7

I was once reminded to look at the bigger picture my big & mighty Boss has for me, I know I'm not building just a Ferrari, it is something even bigger, something more significant... I pray that all of us who are walking in this journey of faith will see the big picture in our lives, never give up, always be reminded that He will gives us strength and wisdom, and most of all, be the light and the salt of the world!

Be bold in every battle, dudes!
