Just a quick post before I read a little bit of the news and head to bed. I can’t believe we’re already heading towards mid July, which means I have about 6 weeks left in Hong Kong before I head back to Boston. What do I have to prepare? I don’t really want to think about it right now. I’m currently working Monday to Friday, and partying it up with friends when I have time.
Every day I am learning patience. I won’t go into detail, but there are things that get on my nerves and all I want to do is run away from the source but obviously, that is not the right way to do things. I am learning the limit of my patience, when I need to walk away and take some time to myself, and when I need to just suck it up and let God handle it.
The other day on my way to work, I saw a maid taking a walk with a 2 year old little girl. The maid was trying to get her to practice walking, but the little girl could not stop crying. She continuously cried and followed by saying, hold me! carry me! But the helper just said, get up! I’m right here.. just keep walking. It was adorable and made my day all the better.
It did make me think of our relationship with God. How many times in a day when something does not go our way, and all we want to do is cuddle up in the corner and hide away. We don’t want to face the issue, do this or do that, we keep falling and God keeps saying “Get up my love, I am right here for you. Don’t worry. I won’t give you anything you can’t handle.”
It is really refreshing being reminded of God in the little things we do and see every day.
