“If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them” —John 13:17
June 8, 2012
Do not get comfortable and always be determined to know more than others. Living under God’s will means that we are not to stay where we are, where we’re comfortable. Comfortable leaves little room for learning and improvement because everything is all good and dandy. Having stagnant creates a tiresome faith. We get burnt out because our faith is not moving.
There are things that I have to let go and blindly follow God’s path. Blindly following is not being delusional or stupid but it is exercising my faith in Him.
I will be honest… in 5 months, it will be 1 year where I am somewhat unemployed. I have some freelance gigs here and there and thankfully by God’s grace it is keeping me afloat. I have close calls when it comes to possible jobs but it never came to be and I haven’t seriously looked yet for my portfolio is not even up. Nothing seems to be working for me on that end but I have this project that I am working on with a couple of friends/teammates. It is amazing how things are going so fast and it is all working out. I believe this is God’s approval of what I am doing or else it wouldn’t work. I was blessed with a talented designer who can whip up crazy high quality mocks and a genius of a coder that can code faster than I can say “programming”. Yes I do feel bad sometimes that I see some of my colleagues are finding jobs here and there and I am here working from one project to another while dreaming big and trying to make it happen. That is where faith comes in… if it wasn’t for my trust in God, I would’ve quit this project long time ago, I would’ve quit the dream of building something from the ground up with my amazing teammates. I would’ve settled for safe.
But here I am, officially unemployed with big dreams that I am holding onto God for His mighty approval. Just like my short testimony… if you know and seek God, He will bless you if you do want He wants you to do because you will find favour in Him. The result might not come as fast as Rebecca Black’s “Friday” song but if it’s from God, I am 110% sure that it’ll be worth it.
