Serenity Sunday: Let LOVE Prevail! (8th December 2013)

Hi everyone!

It’s been a week since I last wrote something here. Wow! That’s pretty lazy of me. It’s not about not having something to write. In fact I have a lot in my list. It’s also not about not having enough time, because if there’s a will, there’s a way. It’s actually about not having an efficient time management. Argh! And lately, I’ve been pretty upset with myself because I can’t seem to meet any of my short-term goals. Sigh. Tell me, has anyone of you felt that way, too? Hmmm...

Anyway, today I just want to share with you something I learned. It’s very valuable. It’s about letting love prevail over anything else. Cheesy, huh? Hahaha. Okay! Have you had a day where you run into situations which seem to test your temper over and over again? And when you’re about to get angry already, you’d hear a soft whisper in your heart telling you to think again, to show restraint, to choose not to get mad and to let love prevail instead? WEIRD?

Well, let’s just say that God is really amazing. How He repeatedly accepts us after hurting Him over and over again is just totally beyond me, which brings me to what I mentioned earlier. Today, after getting annoyed so many times (hahaha), I ended choosing to love and refused letting the annoyance and frustration take over. It was not an easy thing to do, but  I just kept on thinking WJWD (What Jesus Would Do) if He’s in my place, and I was able to make it. Yay! But of course it’s gonna be an everyday mission. I might have succeeded today, but I need to keep on going until it becomes a habit just like breathing. Yey!


Readers, what valuable lesson have you learned today? Let’s talk about it in the comments below!

***
Romans 12:21 (NIV)
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Proverbs 17:14  (NIV)
Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; so drop the matter before a dispute breaks out.
