I've had a lot on my mind lately. On Wednesday night, after bible study, i was having a chat with my good friend, George, in the middle of our conversation, he made a remark, which goes like this, "I do not know what tomorrow holds, but i do know the one who holds tomorrow." It was just a casual remark, but i held on to it. Infact, it's been coming back to me whenever my thots start to drift. It's so funny how things fall in place.
Sometime last month, during my quiet time, i read Proverbs 30 verses 7-9. Paraphrasing, it just says there are 2 things i ask of you dear Lord and don't refuse me these 2 before i die. The first one is keep falsehood and lies away from me (those white lies, stretching the truth, that we're guilty of), let me not be stupendously rich nor be a pauper, but only give me my daily bread (make me comfortable). Because if i'm too rich, i may not have time for you, rather i'll be chasing after my wealth and if i'm too poor, i may steal and that'll bring dishonor to ur name.
That was a light bulb moment for me. I started thinking to myself how true that was. I've a friend that says if he has $ 1 million today, he would fashie God and the things of God. Before the end of that week, during bible study with my girls, the topic was from the same chapter in Proverbs i read earlier in the week. Isn't it awesome just how God works? Some may say it's just coincidental, but i don't think so.
P.S: Things are looking good, oh. Very soon, i'll start blogging on what some may call gross stuff. My friend and I are going to start volunteering at the newly refurbished ER in our local hospital (that hospital is huge, yet they keep on extending it), beginning next week. I'm so excited, but we've to be extra careful, so that we don't contract any nosocomial infections.
