Psalms 75:1

We give thanks to you, O God;

we give thanks, for your name is nnear.

We1 recount your wondrous deeds.

 

 The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2016). (Ps 75:1). Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles.

I had to take it slow today, from the morning when I took some time off to get on the work and going to a meeting where I deliberately taking it slow with some requests coming in and made me realised that it is never too late to know the real side of someone who pretended to be so nice, but she is absolutely in her elements after all. Good or bad, knowing that despite the precarious situation i am in that I had to battle my flaws, handling unfair accusation, and at the same time, exploring new possibilities. I had to struggle to manage the anger, disappointment and the urge to just fight back in utter no regards for people to destroy them and knowing those are never qualities that sit high in God’s eyes. Acting in the opposite spirit of it, to actually and intentionally to relinquish my right to such ungodly reaction takes so much effort, and yet in achieving it, I felt such relieve and freedom. And once i drop my pride and my ego, I can come to God and be thankful to Him. Yes, my enemies might be closing in, my God is my refuge. I am still working on my flaws, I am still battling internally in the eternal war for my soul and spirit and I can thank God because He is near, a whisper away and His deeds are indeed a testimony of His ever faithfulness in my life. What can i thank God for? For once, i have a great wife and I thank God for this girl who has such a great heart for You.
