The Better Man

There’s a reason for everything that happens. It’s easy to take things for granted…be it the lil or significant things in life. We are where we are not just for a reason nor  just a purpose but for His purpose.

Everything is always easier said than done. Knowing the Truth that sets you free is one thing and living a life that reflects that is yet another thing. Forgiving someone can be as easy as just saying to that person you forgive them for the things that they have wronged you, but have you forgotten it or is it still burning deep inside you to an extent it eats you alive and being so bitter about it inside unconsciously makes you spread your negative bitterness around?

This is what happens when I get a long weekend break from work. ‘Me time’ with all the time in the world to reflect, think and think and think and think of everything and anything you can think off (literally)!

Whenever I look back I can never comprehend enough the beauty of God’s grace/blessings/love/favour in my life. It encourages me just reading back some of my entries on how God has allowed me to go through all that I need, the hurts, the betrayal, the heartbreaks, the disappointments, the sorrows…to develop my character, to be more like Him ~ to be The Better Man!

So, when circumstances come your way, look at it from His point of view. His plans are never to harm you but to give you hope and a future (:

For our present troubles are quite small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us an immeasurably great glory that will last forever! So we don’t look at the troubles we can see right now; rather, we look forward to what we have not yet seen. For the troubles we see will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever! 2 Cor 4:17-18.
