Ponderings....

Growing up i thought i had life figured out. I thought if i was good enough, worked hard enough, then i would succeed. Then my life will go in a certain way but no, it didn't.  Exciting turns i never even imagined here and there. I guess it goes to say man proposes but it is God who disposes. 

The only one who's got the whole of life figured out completely is God, hence our dependence on him. He knows the turns and d twist. No life's formula fits  it all. What works for A might not work for B. I mean don't get me wrong, there's the underlying principle of what u sow is what u reap but sometimes u sow apple and reap corn. Now it doesnt mean corn is bad but it just wasn't what u were expecting. You work hard cos you want to succeed but sometimes hardwork is not all it takes to get u to d top, it is the grace of God. David was not the strongest or most perfect king but He had the grace of God working for him and he did succeed in all he did. 


Being able to trust God with your life is what truly matters, being able to look away from your self and so called strengths/abilities is what counts. The bible says trust in the Lord and rely not on your own abilities. When you rely on your own strength alone, God hands off & let's you do the work & that is struggle! I think 
what counts at the end of d day is our ability to look away from what we think are our strengths & righteousness and rather look unto God.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Like my Pastor once said, if you listen to man, you;ll be deaf to God. Only when we traut Him and ignore what man says do we see His glorious hand at work.

Well trusting in God and not trusting in our own abilities,does the magic. Our lives not going as we planned it,in my own opinion is God,trying to tell us that we ain't in charge of our destinies and there's a supreme being that,sees the end from the beginning.

My first time here..
