Surrender

We are tempted to think that the more powerful we become, the better we will battle sin. But the exact opposite is true. The more power, influence, or prestige we possess, the more temptable we are. The strength of sin feeds on our sense of strength. This is why we are warned that “pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverbs 16:18). In weakness, we feel our need for God, but when we are strong, we lack that saving sobriety. We lost the need of God and mostly in strength we tend to think THINGS ARE UNDER CONTROL..but it is not so. THEREFORE learning to surrender towards God is needed the most…then we will know how to respect a sovereign power over us. An authority to lead us and not to control us.

Sunset – i Will see you by the morrow!

Sunset – i Will see you by the morrow!

What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. Ecclesiastes 1:9

 

I have been recalling the days I was a teen. Usually around five pm I look above the sky and I remember watching the sun go down. I usually imagined all the romantic movies I watched with two couples sitting together and holding hands sitting on the bench under a tree. It looks very inviting for me. And I wished that I would also want to have the same sunset when I would grow up.

Years had passed, and I am getting more older. I have missed many sunsets but there are times where I noticed it and the memory keeps reminding me of my wishes. The sun had been watching all peoples lives, witnessing all the things both good and bad, wealth and poverty being experienced daily. How the sun rises in the monring and then sets for the world to meet darkness. I lived life like the Sun had never been there and the moon had been a decoration. I have passed the days and nights of sorrowful times. I ahve overcome the trials and still I bear the wounds that needs to heal in time.

Few years ago, I have learned to appreciate the sunset. To stop and watch it go down. Its like I am standing there waving goodbye because I do not know if I will meet the morrow again. It is then I have learned to realise that Life is so short and the Sun is a very helpful to fulfill our task while it is daylight.

Today, I have met people who have the same mindset as I am. Listening to the words spoken to me today, I cherish everything that had been spoken. In this time of hour as I experience the tough moment of my life, and as the world seem to be a mixture of movement for me. I see the contrast of whispering hope been given.

I believe One day, I will have the chance to have a stable life and I will be more hopeful and glad. As for now, I just have to watch the sunset and wave at it goodbye for a night.

The morrow awaits…

And the JOURNEY WILL BEGIN!!
