:: breathing room ::

New season. New semester. New challenges. New tasks. New outlook. New everything.

Stepping up to the next level of faith. And hopefully, not fearing :)

“When fear increases, faith ceases.” Good quote by the BFG, that one.

Definitely for me. I pray that i won’t be too chicken to face up to the new things that are coming my way. The technically *new* situations that i’ve brought myself into. It’s been exciting so far, and i trust it’s gonna be even better!

Read in an article by Dr John C. Maxwell that we all need breathing rooms. About having margins in our lives that will give us breathing rooms so that when something goes wrong, as it surely will sooner or later-the problem isn’t as bad as it seems. Margins that don’t just apply to finances but time and relationships as well. I learnt a lot from that article. Short as it was.

I need margins. And breathing room. I need to know that if i work hard enough in building them into my life with time, effort and purpose, i can turn those margins into options which will give me a choice to live a more fulfilled and purposeful life. We can do anything in the world, if we want it badly enough and if we are willing to pay the price. Paying the price for the freedom we have yet to truly experience. Everything we do, is gonna cost us something. I’m just wondering, how prepared am i to pay the price? :)

I like how Dr Maxwell said that for people without margins, everything is hard and difficult and some things are impossible. For people with margins, however, things may be difficult, but nothing is impossible.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I can answer questions through the wisdom He has given me. Act the way He’s taught and asked me to act through His Word. By imitating my leaders even as they imitate Him.

So many things to do, so little time. That’s why we need margins to get a bit of room to breathe.

P/S : BenJi is a retarded hamster. I was asked to do this. And this doesn’t make my thoughts before redundant :D
