A Humble Beginning

Praise be to the Lord, for He has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song. - Psalm 28:6-7

I'm a liar if I would say that I've recovered fully after a painful break up. It was never easy for me having to wake up each day knowing I'd lost something I ever wanted for myself. There were times when I had to fake the way I was feeling. I was afraid that people might say something I never wished to hear.

That was almost 3 months ago. This afternoon as I was writing on my journal, I examined my heart's condition. Not at all surprising, I know I feel better today.

There are moments in our lives when we face dead-ends and set backs after putting too much efforts to keep something we feel so important to us. Disappointments and frustrations would then come in and knowing that things are getting out of control, we feel powerless. What would be our last resort then?

Reality shows that most of us would run to God after realizing that we can no longer fight and win over circumstances. It's fairly usual to us human. But despite this, God willingly accepts us with open arms. He keeps on giving His boundless love and reassuring us of His promises. For me, there's nothing else I'd rather want to feel but the comfort God is providing me. I am confident that His mercy is new every morning. Everything He has given me are sufficient to pull me up to start over again.

The question now is who's holding my heart this time? None other than the One I'd like to give thanks on my songs. This sounds weird but I'm learning to trust God for who He is.
