Again and again.. I’ve sworn that I was going to take a weekend away and think things through. Except that by the time I got away and actually got going on the weekend, all I wanted to do was rest and recover. Such as by looking at the ocean to relax, see the horizon, and listen to the rhythm of the waves to remove the stress from my soul or staring at the ocean doesn’t work for me. A quiet weekend doesn’t work for me…hehehee.. Quiet weekends are for sleep, recovery, and not thinking about anything.. but then last weekend (to be specific on Friday till Sunday) I’ve joined the Live By Word Retreat organized by Bible Apostolic of Sacred Heart. And the speaker is Bishop Cornelius Shim (Brunei). I’ve touched on the segment of ‘Turn Your Failure into Blessing’ and ‘You’ve Taken and Chosen to be.. Take it and Turn it’. Overall I love all the encouraging words, life and faith experiences of the Bishop. He have chosen and take it.. from Engineer of Shell company which going around the worlds with big $$$$ income to the humble man… can I do that? Emm… I cant answered it..hehee
When we make the decision to change, we often do it because we are sick and tired of the life that we have been living. That choice is usually based on an earnest desire to do things differently, however, under our own strength; it doesn't always work out that way.
Recovery is an important part of the process of overcoming addiction or habit. Recovery is for all of us who are tired of anything that may be destroying lives. It is for all of us who want to stop living in grief, fear, anxiety, guilt and shame. It is for all of us who want to separate ourselves from the issues of the past.
God is in the change business. He has the ability to make all things work together for the good of those that place their faith in Him. God promises us that He can and will heal us through His Holy Spirit. God Bless…
