What would I change about our society?

The absence of active citizenship. I think I am brought up in a society where self-centeredness is increasingly embraced. We care a lot about how we can improve our lives individually, and think little about how we can progress as a community and society. We disconnect because we value self-development more than collective growth. Apart from family violence and abuse, in recent history, divorce is commonplace to our society because it is the easy way out. To exercise active citizenship to me is to play the role of a good human being; to see that everything we do has a consequence. Persevering in all that we do, whether it is the relationships we have, taking care of the earth, being kind to animals and other creatures we co-exist with, fighting for a good cause etc. We should all learn to be more selfless. After all, the world did not exist for just one of us.

Everyday Counts

Everyday is an important day. I wake up knowing the reason why I am here. I exist because God created me.My boss said the following on a couple of occasions, "we get a taste of dying when we sleep at night, and when we wake up, we are born again." Frequently, I asked myself, "if today is the last day of your life, would you be pleased?" More importantly, will God be pleased? As much as possible, I do the best that I can because I don't know what will happen to me the next moment.I want to give God more control over my life and let Him take the wheel and steer me in the direction He wants me to be. Because I know my life belongs to Jesus. "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."Galatians 2:20Love,

Day 149 of 2019

Dear Day 149,There is a constant restlessness inside me worrying that I have not made today worthy. The way I live is such that today could be the last day of my life and I really want to make God proud of whatever I have done. Because my life should be about Him and not me. So many times throughout the day, I caught myself seeking validation and all I really should be doing is to be still, and know that God is with me and in control. I just need to do whatever He wants me to do and have the peace of mind.I should just remember that "to live is Christ, and to die is gain." Philippians 1:21My life is about Him, not me.Love,
