Faith is a gift – Hebrews 12:2 states that Jesus is the author and perfector of our faith. It is not something that I can muster or stir up with my own will or strength. I’m constantly amazed that God started this work faith in me and is continuing to grow my faith. Because this faith is about a relationship with a living God, every aspect of the reality that I experience must resonate with His definition of life. When dissonance occurs, I try to reconcile it with God’s word and preaching it to my soul. Many of these writings are chronicles of those dissonance and my attempts to resolve them. Others are inspirations towards living a life worthy of His calling. Some are just plain muses as I contemplate on this irrational world I’m passing through before I see Jesus face to face. There are also the occasional posts that betray my eccentricity and idiosyncrasies.
I’ve never considered myself a word-smith or someone who’s proficient in the English language. In fact, I’ve always thought that I’m more of a Science than Arts person. But since entering the workforce, I’ve discovered the importance of words and making yourself understood. You can be like Einstein, having the best ideas but if you are unable to communicate them clearly and coherently, then the best ideas are just your own, locked in your brain. They can’t inspire anyone. So I guess this blog is just my feeble attempt to let my thoughts and feelings take on form and exert a little influence in this world.
Yet, the more I write, the more I realise that I write for myself. Writing is cathartic, and as I write, my thoughts and feelings get processed and validated. Sometimes as I read my past posts, I’m amused at my reflections and stunned by God’s grace through His revelations and interventions in my life. This is my memory capsule, chronicling God’s presence in my life.
I hope that your stopover at my blog would inspire you to consider the beauty and glory of Christ. If I succeed in this, then my words were not written in vain.
