Unemployed

I must say, today is officially my first day of being unemployed after the long holiday.

My last day at my work of more than 8 years was last Dec. 31.

Today is the first day of waking up not thinking of work and the things I need to do at work.

I had to make a schedule on how my day should go as I don’t want to spend each day lazily being so unproductive.

I’m excited on this journey as to how, where, what and when – will God take me to something new.

I’m happy also that I will have more time in my writing now. So much things I can do and so much time I can spend with the Lord!

My work is a gift from God. And this time to rest, is a gift from God also.

What to do?

 

It’s been so unusual for me lately not to do anything on weekends. I usually have scheduled meet-ups or events. But this year, I somehow made a commitment to myself to have some weekends just to rest, really rest.

Well, today, I’m just at home, wondering what to do. I want to clean my room but I just don’t have the energy for it. I want to do some grocery but I just don’t know what to buy. I want to go to the mall and catch a movie, I’m not just into the movies showing right now. I’m trying to think of what to do just to make my weekend productive but my body is saying I should just rest.

Maybe, this is what I really get for having a very busy, tiring work week. As much as I want to do the things that I really enjoy doing, my physical body just wants to rest. Oh well, rest is a luxury these days. Better grab this when I can have it.

Thanks to online delivery and online Christian movies I can enjoy. 🙂 

Just watched the movie New Hope and it was a reminder for me to be sensitive to those people who are in great pain. We really don’t understand the depth of their pain, what we could really do is to show them more love and care.

My favorite line in the movie: “Christianity isn’t flawed, only Christians.” 

Happy Restful Weekend to me…nyaha! 🙂

Time

Would you agree that in this lifetime, time is truly a luxury?

A luxury…

When we don’t have time…

for family
for rest
for doing hobbies
for meeting people

most importantly, for God.

I use to struggle in managing my time especially during weekends. My calendar is always booked that I got worn out and sick as often because of the lack of rest. This year, I’ve learned to somehow manage my time and make sure I really have time for God and for rest.

God was very serious when He said to keep the Sabbath holy. He knows our limitations and that we truly need rest to be recharged for the good works that He has prepared for us to do in the next days.

I thank God that He gives me 2 days off to be renewed.

Don’t you love weekends? 🙂

Happy Rest Day! 🙂

Past, Future

Today was really refreshing day! Praise God for today!

I attended a women’s conference in my church with the theme, A Time of Refreshing. Indeed, I was refreshed! It’s about forgetting the past and reclaiming the future. I liked what the speaker, Ms. Anne Chan said, that we should let go of our past because God will rewrite it and make us anew. Such a comfort knowing that God never looks at our past. 🙂 And as we learn to let go of our past, we learn to reclaim a future that is hopeful and much better.

Just tonight, I also watched the movie Samurai X with friends. And funny that the movie was also about forgetting the past and choosing to be better. Kenshin, the main character has killed a lot in his past and after ten years came back with a new conviction. He was changed, reclaiming for a better future for the coming generation.

Isn’t God so amazing? He tells us not to dwell in our past. It’s never easy to forgot the past but it is more difficult to live in the present if we couldn’t let go of our past that hinders us to be better and not bitter.

All glory to God for changed hearts!
