Romans 6:3-4, 8-11
Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.
Beyond our comprehension and prayers, God always gives us the best in our life. It may not be the total package of what we desire for yet we are all blessed with graces and mercy that only God can give us without cost and expectations.
There were also times that we want to secure our position, power or influence. We want to be on top. We want to have everything that we want – the newest, biggest, and grandest things that world is advertising on us. But getting these things, there were also sacrifices and conflict against our values and attitudes. Though, for some its not applicable.
Whether we are up and down, we may not forget to thank God as He alone blessed us those things that we have. Things that make us happy and satisfied temporarily. Cause, even just Him alone, we are already blessed and complete.
Dear God, thank you for all the blessing and graces that you continuously giving me without me asking them. May you continue to guide and bless me to serve more of your people and to prove them how great and good You are.
