I want to tell you some story. My life has always been a dream fulfilled. Yes, I live with imagination, with hopes and prayers for my future. Then a teenage me found something that I feel should be pursued until I get it. It’s eventually fill my dreams, my night prayers, and become the goal of all the things I do. Until now.
However, there are always times when I feel to give up. I’ve come this far, but the dream was not even peeping from behind the door. Should I give up?
Me: God, can I ask You a question?
Me: Promise You won’t get mad
God: I promise
Me: Why did You let so much stuff happen to me today?
I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].
Philippians 4:13 AMP
Sometimes things doesn’t work as we expected, sometimes it’s hard or maybe unfair. And sometimes we feel like to give up.
Well…He doesn’t say everything will be easy for us. He doesn’t promise we will enjoy every little thing that comes in our way, but we can enjoy life in the midst of doing them.
How? By not doing it alone. We can ONLY do it with Christ. That’s why it is important to realize that even though you feel overwhelmed, you should still say, “I can do whatever I need to do in life through Christ.”
Guys, you’re more than a conqueror. We’re more than a conqueror.
PS. Conqueror means you have such confidence that no matter what comes up in your life, you know that through Christ you can handle it!

Something bizzare on my days a week ago. Both corners of my lip are often attracted to the upper, a smile that was reluctant to quit. Food in my mouth suddenly loss of its tastes. And my stomach full of butterflies.
I recognize the symptoms.
