Little pains

Posted on: June 26, 2009

I was just talking to God.

And I just realized that it is
blessed to be able to feel those little pains in our lives – small
minor unhappiness that do not turn your life topsy-turvy, yet still
manage to affect you a little. It shows that my emotional nerves are
still sensitive – and this only means that there are no major wounds
that cause great pain there. For if there is great pain in my life, the
little ones wouldn’t matter, they wouldn’t even be felt at all.

I hope I am making myself understandable.

It’s
just like doing a school project. When it’s almost done, you tweak it
here and there to make it perfect. You refine all the minor details.
But when it’s totally undone and the deadline is near, all you want to
do is hand something up. And you don’t really care how well ‘something’
is done as long as you have something to hand up (reminds me of last
sem).

To be able to care about little details, even the negative
ones, is a blessing indeed. It means you’ve got the greater things all
covered. And when you look back after some time, you realize that it is
the big things that really matter.

Learning to thank God for
little pains and aches (even those inflicted on myself by me, which
hurt the most). And learning the cherish this time too, where all still
counts as bliss, and God’s blessings come in the form of abundance and
fulfillment.

Usually things like this should appear in my diary
and not in my blog. But alas, I have yet to unpack my diary. I miss my
diary! Yet unpacking it will clutter up my room much further, and it is
a sacrifice I have yet to be able to make. You see, even my printer is
not out yet.

Let’s talk about happier things 🙂 Worship
practice! Went there today with Alicia, Andrew and Jon. It was fun. I
get to know more of the Youth now in the second practice, and though
we’re a bit like oil and water, I think they are very sociable and fun.
I love the songs. And I realize there’s really a lot of good singers
among the Youth too.

That’s all of today’s entry I think. I wish I could write more, but my ability to express hasn’t really been back yet.

We all have \’pains\’ we have to carry through lifeLook at the Apostle Paul ~ with the \’Thorn in the side\’

🙂 Mine is not the serious kind haha. I thought Paul\’s thorn was a weakness instead of pain?

A weakness that made him strongGod uses our weakness to show his strength
