Collide

I witness a car accident while crossing the street. The car was about to turn left but since we were crossing, she stopped to let us through then suddenly the car behind her hit her, smashing her back light. What a day.

It’s a very cold day to walk but I was able to make it. Saw rows of stores mostly vietnamese, indian, and chinese. I bought potato chips from a convenience store. It was supposed to be on sale but it’s still expensive.

I saw trains crossing the railing. It’s with high technology.

Now my feet hurt because of the cold.

I hope God will give me favor soon.

Suburbs

This is what I have in mind when I was a kid. Just like in the movies. I want to live in a neighborhood like this where my kids would enjoy playing here.

Day Three

Applied for medicare but they said I applied early. The center is a bit far from our place so it’s a good thing that they accepted my application form and I just have to wait for the card on the mail.

Adjustments needed. I also need the grace and favor of God. So please help me God.

Be Good

I’ll be good to my body again. I’ve had enough of this stress eating. I have to take care of my body. I’m glad I’ve got to read blogs of these real people who know how to do it.¬†

By God’s grace, I can do this. ūüôā

Comfort Zone

I’ve read from a blog that LIFE BEGINS AT THE END OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE.

Wow, this speaks to me a lot. ¬†I’ll be going out of my comfort zone–BIG TIME! ¬†Hopefully, I’ll find a home there–a spiritual family.

God’s Favor

Everything is God’s favor. ¬†Wherever I am, if God is with me and if He will favor me then I’m the most blessed lady in the world. ūüôā

I’m loving this walking shoe which makes my feet feel so good I wouldn’t mind walking 2 hours a day in it. ūüôā ¬†But I have to think about my budget. ¬†I’ve found this very comfortable boots but they don’t have my size. ūüė¶

I have to be optimistic about things.  God is with me.

Training

I’ve been really busy with my career that I stress-eat again and now I have flank pain again.

I have lots of laundry to do, papers to file and organize, friends to meet, and limited quality time to give to my family.

It’s all in God’s hand ūüôā

Numbers

I dread reading the Book of Numbers, but surprisingly, God is speaking to me through that book.

The Israelites were such a complainer when they were in the dessert–but aren’t we all. ¬†But I think I can very well relate to this because I am about to go into the promised land God has given me. ¬†This book is a great reminder that I shouldn’t blame God in all my discomforts, that I just have to talk to Him–to pray and He will listen just like how He talks and listen to Moses.

God also reminded me to always choose life.  To love and obey God.

…Now choose life, so that you and your children may live¬†20¬†and that you may love¬†the¬†Lord¬†your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the¬†Lord¬†is your life,¬†and he will give¬†you many years in the land¬†he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. (Deuteronomy 30:19-20)

I should not forget how God has blessed me and how He’s faithful to His promises. ¬†I was also touched by this:

19 God is not a human, that he should lie,
not a human being, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act?
Does he promise and not fulfill?
20 I have received a command to bless;
he has blessed, and I cannot change it. (Numbers 24:19-20)

He will always do what He says.  I can hold on to His promises.

Thrive

How are you? ¬†I’m so into podcasts right now! ¬†Lots to listen to, from Hillsong to Planetshakers to Victory and CCF, Joel Osteen, Joseph Prince…Can’t get enough of listening about God.

Words that speak to me today:

4¬†This is what the¬†Lord¬†Almighty, the God of Israel, says to all those I carried¬†into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon:¬†5¬†‚ÄúBuild¬†houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce.6¬†Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease.¬†7¬†Also, seek¬†the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray¬†to the¬†Lord¬†for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.‚ÄĚ (Jeremiah 29:4-7)

We have to thrive here on earth while we are waiting for the Lord. ¬†We have to enjoy God’s blessings. ¬†Life goes on. ¬†With God’s grace, I will thrive. ūüôā
