Words are powerful. For this year’s faith goals, I will be intentional in combining the power of words (by speaking and writing), actions, and timing to accomplish them one day at a time.
One of life’s lesson for me today is very thought-provoking. “Don’t be too spiritual or too technical.” I was reminded of that verse in Ecclesiastes, “It’s good to grasp the one and not let go of the other. Whoever fears God will avoid all extremes.”
The first day of October wasn’t really as good as I expected it. But I chose to be thankful despite these awful surprises. “The best is yet to come,” as the optimists would say; and it’s also the same phrase we – Jesus believers – often declare when things are completely out of our control.
It’s been a while since I updated this blog. I missed writing—that freestyle kind of writing where I just do it for the sake of the craft to satisfy myself. I’ve had enough of SEO, keywords, and metatags (and followers). I’ll go for sincere, transparent, and conversational posts from now on
