We have a reason to celebrate life every single day because the God we serve is alive. His resurrection power didn’t end on the cross 2000 years ago; His power is still at work today. Not only did He resurrect Jesus from the dead, but He wants to extend His resurrection power into every single area of your life, too.
Maybe you have a dream to get out of debt, pay off your house or be free from a burden of lack, but it looks impossible. Business is slow. The economy is down. You’ve gone as far as your education allows. But God is saying, “I’m not limited by those things. I’ve got resurrection power. I can give you one break that will thrust you to a new level. I can open up doors that no man can shut. I can bring talent out of you that you didn’t know you had. I can cause people to go out of their way to want to be good to you for no reason.”
Today, get your hopes up. Get your expectancy up. Remember, He is risen, and He is alive. There’s a shift coming, and He is faithful to His Word. Let His resurrection power flow in every area of your life!
Dear Charlotte jiejie,
Hahha I hope it’s not really too weird that you’re reading a message directed to you on my blog which you’ve never visited before. I decided to do so because perhaps you can know me more here and it’s easier (and nicer with the picture) to read the message here. Hehe^^
I’m so not used to not seeing you at home less often, sometimes not even seeing at all. Not that we do talk a lot when at home. But still. I treasure the presence. Even at those moments when I have to step up as a saikang warrior. Like helping you peel prawns. HAHA. No I’m not feeling obliged to do them! #actsofservice. Hahaha. Yup. And then now you suddenly fly here and there. Like the most often ever in your life. Hahaha. But yay. So fun and meaningful! Good! Yup so in this case, tying in to the picture, I hope for you that you’ll find greater revelation from God, and He’ll grow your heart of compassion through your coming mission trip.
Yup I’m also holding onto the hope that our family will grow closer even dispite our differences. Sometimes I think I’m weird, I feel like the only one here that really treasures and work for the family to be closer. Perhaps your all also do, just that your don’t show it out, or the want isn’t as great. But still. I hope that all the efforts driven by this want will not amount to nothing.
School isn’t all perfect with rainbows and butterflies. I find that I struggle alot with conflicting doubts. Whether I feel its just me being selfish and narrowminded, or what I feel is really true. I find that people around me in VJ are more individualistic… No offence, but sometimes I get annoyed when so many of my closer friends always put themselves first. Like they want things to go their way. And they see themselves higher than others. Sadly, even my kinda closest friend in class and cross mate also abit like that, and idk if its just me or what. Sometimes talking in that condescending tone, suaning me as ‘burden’ etc etc. Idk if its just my personality, that I allow them to do that to me,… Yup yes they can be fun and stuff and all, but they being like that can sometimes kill my mood. They’re relatively popular, sometimes I feel like some extra friend whom they can do without. Then the dilemma comes in again if I’m just being too soft and thinking too much/ blowing things up (which I sometimes do). This brings me to the point about being unsure about everything I feel, thats why I really need someone to ‘consult’. But only God can be that person. Then my insensitivity to God. Never ending cause and effects.
And not to mention those people who does really well and still complain to you saying how badly they faired. Enough of rants, I need to control/
Is it normal to feel like this?
But still, above all these, I still have the hope that everything will turn out for the best, that amidst all these, there are people who really care whom I haven’t found out.
Hahaha, I’m not sure if you’ll read this in time, guess you are busy!
Idk what/how you’ve been feeling these days, and I’ve talked too much about myself. Hope to hear from you and the stuff you are gonna do in Thailand. Love the kids more, for me too!! Yay!
