The last couple of weeks, though it may have been quiet on my blog, have actually been the most thought provoking moments in my life. Ever since I joined my new project, things have been… well rather hectic, so much so I have kinda lost my footing in life. The hectic pace, the adrenaline rush which I have had almost night after night as I burnt midnight oil completing work assignments have left me exhasperated, and also made me wonder.
These experiences over the last couple of weeks have allowed me to really take a good look at myself – both my professional life and also my personal life, and boy have those two areas taken a strong beating over the last couple of weeks.
Well, beating is abit too harsh I should say, but definitely these experiences have had a profound (not necessarily pleasant though!) impact on my life. For the first time, I actually took time to reflect on myself, and that’s something really worth the time, a valuable experiences because you learn so much about how far you have come, the mistakes you have made, and what you can do to be a better person or employee the next time around.
But yes, the experience is painful, and humbling if more than anything. But uncannily , I do welcome the suffering and the pain, despite wallowing in all my complaints and exhasperations, pleading with God when the storms will end and also cajoling my soul to just wait it out and peserve.
I take lots of comfort though, in knowing that God actually sees me through those sufferings. The other day I was just reflecting on this verse, and it bought a sort of comfort and assurance to my heart:
God is faithful, and he will not let you be tested beyond your strength but with your testing he will also provide the way out so that you may be able to endure it
Can I hear an AMEN to that? 🙂
