Prayer for the day...

My heart was running wildly and aimlessly last night, I simply couldn’t focus on what I was doing. My emotions were greatly disturbed. I was so sad thinking of leaving my housemates. At the same time, I was struggling hard to squeeze all the Management Studies facts in my lousy and mal-functional coconut. Suddenly I saw a card, and my disturbed emotions were soothed gradually.

The content of the card is as the following:

I love You, God for who You are, my Saviour and the Bright and Morning Star. I love You for what You are, the light of the world and the hope of my life. I love You for where You are - with me always, inside my heart.

I love the way You speak – so soothingly, so lovingly, so freely. I love the way You listen – so eagerly, so attentively, hearing and attending to my every prayer. I love the way You care for me – providing my needs and even my wants when You know they’re good for me.

I love the way You can look into my heart and see my innermost desires, my secret longings, my hidden wishes, and make them come true. You see the longings of my spirit – some of which never even reach my heart or mind before You fulfill them, because You know better than I do on what I need and what is good for me when my heart is overwhelmed within me, in the midst of sorrow, your comforts delight my soul.

Yea, this is a Christian prayer, though I’m not a Christian, somehow my soul was greatly soothed when I read this and I managed to swallow all the Management facts, theories and examples before my exam started. I don’t know what should I say about this, simply it was so coincident. As I read that card, my clogged mind was suddenly cleared and filled up with all the Management facts, theories and examples. I consider this as a miracle.

At last, whatever it is, I should Thank God letting me read that significant card (actually it’s a prayer)….

Ahem... I'm never been good in religion XP... Jess are you a Buddhist?

I have been partial Buddhist and partial Christian before, but that was the past. Now? A full time free thinker XD.

I don't know, yes I believe it is good to hold a belief... But all the while I couldn't find my true belonging, I went to temples and Churches, nothing change in my life.

And I'm a little curious your so-called 'card', what a sudden that it appears before you =.=" Did it fell down from the sky or the ceiling or under your pillow or what... It's strange XD.

A famous author named C. S. Lewis once said this, "If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world."

maybe, the entire reason behind our feelings of the existence of someone way above us, is owing to the same desire as mentioned by C. S. Lewis? :)

one book says this, "For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse."

may you found your true belongings, to a world yet to be known :)

Quoted from Sir Chris' header in his blog, perhaps we are from the world of the other side...
