Midweek Thoughts; Being a Blessing
I'm not obliged to be nice to any of you, if i'm nice, it's because i want, not because i have to."
Sometimes we just don't have the luxury of time to enjoy anymore. I know, I can't just sit around and doodle in my previous achievements and just hope to do just as well without putting in effort. I need to work hard. I have the world to discover, and I cannot put that journey on hold due to a sheer lack of determination now. Sometimes I expect a lot, or a little more. I stop to demand. Become upset when I don't see why I should even be demanding it. Then I realise I'm even more domineering to be carrying that thought. Haha.
What a greedy world we are living in. Wishing more could be done. Expecting something different. Making a fuss out of little habits. And I find myself taking things for granted.
There's nothing wrong with giving, just that sometimes we start to want something in return. And I guess that's where all the unhappiness starts flowing in.
So I learn selfless giving.
Blessed to be a Blessing
To bless and to be a blessing to others
"You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God" <2 Corinthians 9:11>
God does not need us to expand his kingdom, but he has blessed us with the extreme privilege of sharing his name with the world. Our goal, in everything we do, is to glorify God.
I must be such an ignorant fool. Sometimes, its habitual actions that make life reassuring and comfortable. And appreciating little actions of affection just makes life sweeter :)
And so I also learn the joy of appreciation, every single person out there.
Pleasures in life, so simple to come by,
Celebrate in love.
