It won't pull me down - no!

Whew... Today is my breathing day - Sunday. The whole week has been underwater and this is only the first week.*sigh*

I really pray that I won't get dragged away by the things of this world, that I won't get too caught up with life until I forget who gave it to me in the first place. It won't be easy having a busy life: studying, badminton, tuition, etc., but it'll be even harder not to get caught up with it. With temptations rising, trials awaiting, and work consuming, it is too easy to put Him aside - too easy.

To whom who doesn't want to forget Him, who wants to go against our human nature and be more God-natured, who doesn't want to be bound by the world: this is for you - and me.

Thank you, Lord,

for the trials that come my way.
In that way I can grow each day
as I let you lead,
And thank you, Lord,
for the patience those trials bring.
In that process of growing,
I can learn to care.

But it goes against the way
I am to put my human nature down
and let the Spirit take control of all I do.

'Cause when those trials come,
my human nature shouts the thing to do;
and God's soft prompting
can be easily ignored.

Yes, I thank you, Lord,
for the victory that growing brings.
In surrender of everything
life is so worth while.
And I thank you, Lord,
that when everything's put in place,
out in front I can see your face,
and it's there you belong.

So be it.
