A collection of a few moments.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been trying to become somewhat more of a healthier person. I know that doesn’t sound confident, and it’s because I don’t know how long I will keep up this regime.
Things I’ve started to do:
- eating kale & salad, and tried acai bowls
- reading the bible, reflecting more
- cooking more
- … what else more is there?
There’s a whole list of things I have to do on my to do list that I can remember off the top of my head, but this is all I can think of as a list of healthy activities I’ve started to do. I’m pretty happy with the progress so far, so much that I’ve also started rewarding myself with shopping and eating desserts.
What can I say? People don’t really change, even if they’re trying to implement a new system or a new wardrobe. I’m still the same person underneath any excess trend that I might have on.
I was really moved by an image of Jesus today. When He died for us, He had the world’s anxiety resting on His shoulders, and He struggled and felt so much pain. When I often think about my todo list, I get immensely stressed out about the things out of my control. So I cannot imagine what He must have actually felt to say, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death” (Mark 14:34), and pray to His Father, “Abba, Father, all things are possible for you. Remove this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.” (Mark 14:36) I absolutely cannot understand the magnitude of the weight, when I worry and become anxious about the minute details surrounding my world. So really, there is no greater person who can understand any sorrow than Jesus Christ alone, because He, in turn, suffered a greater pain than the world could ever know.
