Faith

Lord, create a new heart in me.  Live in my heart forever.

I have been craving His word like this hole in me that none can fill.  Only Him can fill this hole.  Have you listened to the song of Plumb–God-shaped Hole?  I so can relate to its lyrics.  It goes something like, “There’s a God-shaped hole in all of us and the restless soul is searching…”

I always thought that nothing that I want/dream is given to me and that controlling my weight is the only thing I can do.  But I know now that with God, anything is possible.  I just have to have FAITH.

Faith and patience are lessons that I have yet to master.  But in time, I hope to learn these lessons.  I thank God because He is patient with me.  He is waiting for me–to learn what I must learn so that He could finally give me the blessings He plans to shower me.

Forgiveness

When the time is right, forgiveness will happen.  Before we know it, the bitterness is gone.  But sometimes, we have to be prodded.  Forced to face the past, and look at it in the eye to know what needs to be done.

Love is a very powerful thing.  So is friendship.  And when the hurt comes from these–forgiveness needs some time.  But forgiveness is possible.
