Victory and greatness can sometimes blind me of the real important things in life.
Defeat and challenges can sometimes paralyze me to focus on the things that truly matter.
I feel like I always have to press the “reset” button every time either of those happen in my life.
And now, as I just turned 31 this month, I feel like I need to do a reset of priorities again.
I felt like I’ve lost the end goal in mind and I merely chose to live each day as it comes.
I lost a sense of target, a vision.
I realize that for the past months, I’ve wasted a lot of my time doing unnecessary things and sometimes not doing anything at all.
What happened to me, maximizing my life being single?
I don’t know. I just lost it.
But I’m grateful that I can always start again. I can always go back to my list of faith goals that I set at the start of this year.
I’m just glad I made a list!
As I once again press that “reset” button, I pray that I will never lose sight again of the vision that God has given to me at the start of this year. I pray that everything I will be doing will always be aligned to what God had already set for me for this year.
And as I continue to wait on certain things in my life, I pray that I will never grow weary and lose hope.
I will continue to live with God’s vision in mind, enjoying the present.
My heart is not proud, Lord,
my eyes are not haughty;
I do not concern myself with great matters
or things too wonderful for me.
But I have calmed and quieted myself,
I am like a weaned child with its mother;
like a weaned child I am content.
