If you are asking yourself right now if you are still worthy of everything. If you are still entitled of God’s love and mercy. I would just ike to tell you, behind all the mistakes, shadows of sin, falling short to God and troubles …
Today, as the daily routine in my workplace takes place, I’ve been blessed to encounter a simple act of kindness. A generous action that came from a colleague who is the least I’ve expected since we’re from different departments.
So, here it goes.
It is not the usual social experiment thing; but I think it goes that way.
I went down from our office and take a stroll for a moment for a snack time. I don’t know what went on my mind. I make my way and meet my friends and colleague on their duty since parents in our school are present today. I asked them if they have anything for snack. One by one, I smiled and asked them. They smiled and answered with an apologetic tune, they didn’t have anything to offer. Actually, I am not that hungry to ask for food, but there’s something in me that seek connection through people by the aid of food. Maybe it is just a strategy to swipe away the spirit of sleepiness within me. Haha 😂
Then, a colleague suddenly talk behind my back.
“Where did you go last Songkran?” (4 days national holiday here in Thailand)
I don’t remember what I exactly answered, but what I’ve burst out from my mouth is “Do you have food?”
“There is… in our office”, swiftly heading to the office and handed me a full bag of slice bread.
This encounter really created a huge realization on me that amidst everything else…we could still experience generosity and kindness without expecting anything in return. This may come from people you’re expecting less to help us.
Giving such kind of kindness can make a difference. It could express joy, hope and somehow motivation to others to keep going. That life is still filled up with good vibes and sensitivity with other’s needs.
Perhaps it’s your turn to make this difference. Kindness is contagious, a domino effect, an action that could change life and perception. We never know its end tail, the positive riffle effect it could create.
Time to spread kindness.
I’ve experienced this action today. The fruit of the spirit.
Once, twice, thrice…these are numbers of opportunities that knocks on my door since the beginning of Year 2018. A chance to grow and gain more; financial, experiences, potentials and professional growth. All chances that lead me into somewhere else. A new arrows that directs …
As I grow in my Christian life, I come to realization that the word “surrender” doesn’t only mean losing in a battle. Or giving up. Or in the state of hopelessness. Or any negative feelings/emotions that can be traced to this word. Surrender is …
Everyday in our lives, we commit mistakes. We sometimes barter our real happiness and joy to something pleasing and pleasurable at the moment. Then comes to the point, we questioned our self worth, our ability to remain righteous and pleasing to God’s eye. We …

“We humans, it seems, have anywhere from 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day. But according to some research, as many as 98 % of them are exactly the same as we had the day before. Talk about creatures of habit! Even more significant, 80 % of our thoughts are negative.” -Jennifer Read …
