So many things to do in life, but how many of these matter?
Each revelation of God is a solution to one or more of our lives’ problems.
Speaking about divine “coincidences”! I was just coming to a realisation that i have been running in circles for two years plus, only to realise in the end I’m back to the start, to the place of loving God instead of putting my own interests (which i found out weren’t really my desires) before Him.
I decided to write a song (my first song) on this, called “Running In Circles”.
I’m running in circles
I’m running in circles
Coming back to the start
Where you found me
I’ve been running in circles
I’ve been running in circles for two whole years
Till I found Your love
And I realise this is where I wanna be
I was running in circles
Trying many things
Thinking they were my desires
But I realised they don’t satisfy
So in the end I found
You’re the one I desire
Now I give up everything
So that You can have all of me
All I want is You
All I’ll have is You
My one desire
All I want is You
My whole life for You
Everything is Yours
Then i posted this on my private insta:
“Running In Circles. Felt like I’ve been running in circles for the past two years, only to find myself back at the start where His love is: the place I truly wanna be. Tried many things thinking they were my desires, but none satisfied. Still, no regrets in all of this because these experiences made me realise what I truly desire.”
Then I decided to read my bible for the day and it started with Ecclesiastes 1:
““Everything is meaningless,” says the Teacher, “completely meaningless!” What do people get for all their hard work under the sun? Generations come and generations go, but the earth never changes. The sun rises and the sun sets, then hurries around to rise again. The wind blows south, and then turns north. Around and around it goes, blowing in circles. Rivers run into the sea, but the sea is never full. Then the water returns again to the rivers and flows out again to the sea. Everything is wearisome beyond description. No matter how much we see, we are never satisfied. No matter how much we hear, we are not content. History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new. Sometimes people say, “Here is something new!” But actually it is old; nothing is ever truly new. We don’t remember what happened in the past, and in future generations, no one will remember what we are doing now.”
Ecclesiastes 1:2-11 NLT
What I wanna say is, look at the repeated theme on “going in circles”!
Life indeed is us running in circles. It may seem like we are getting nowhere, but maybe in God’s eyes, we are running in an upward spiral — like the design of a spring. It may be a continuous cycle, but one that’s ever moving upwards.
“A hard worker has plenty of food, but a person who chases fantasies ends up in poverty.”
Proverbs 28:19 NLT
Totally guilty of that, Just dreaming but not doing.
“Those who trust their own insight are foolish, but anyone who walks in wisdom is safe.”
Proverbs 28:26 NLT
For a long time I always assumed being wise means knowing what to do in a situation, with certain knowledge and understanding of the situation. But apparently, that is called “insight” and not wisdom? So what is wisdom then? Does it mean true wisdom is actually a manifestation of God’s presence in our midst, like how the book of Proverbs describe wisdom as a person?
“A quarrelsome wife is as annoying as constant dripping on a rainy day. Stopping her complaints is like trying to stop the wind or trying to hold something with greased hands.”
Proverbs 27:15-16 NLT
Can’t help but think probably Solomon suffered from failed marriages (especially when he had so many wives), because of the few times he referenced a quarrelsome wife, woman, or person in Proverbs. Maybe there are good marriage advices in the bible, but I don’t remember reading any of it in Proverbs. Being such a wise guy as he was, it’s a sad thing to think he lacked wisdom when it comes to marriage commitment and relationships: two of the major things in life.
Is it just me or do others think that when a girl expresses her interest in you, it makes her look interesting and cool cause it’s not something most people would do? And there’s much courage in her to do so?
I mean, showing interest doesn’t mean anything. It’s just being honest and real, not like deeply in love or something. Like it’s just the beginning of any budding relationship, so if it doesn’t work out it shouldn’t be too bad a thing also? So why do people get so hung up and over exaggerate the consequences behind such stuffs?
I would think the same too, but from what i heard it seems like when put in such a situation when a guy expresses interest in a girl, she will get over paranoid and choose flight instead of being chill & casual about it?
