Recently, I replaced my identity card with updated details and photograph.
The old one (on the left) was done near the period of my national service enlistment which explains the botak and beh song (not happy in Hokkien) look.
Now after 12 years, at least I’m smiling and looking more song (happy) in my latest photograph. Ha ha…
The years passed by
As I reflected on the changes, and especially my journey with God through those 12 years, I am amazed and humbled by His wondrous love.
Like what the third line in verse 4 of Isaiah 54 (see previous entry) speaks of: “You will forget the shame of your youth.” I cannot refute His claims.
Over the years, I have indeed experienced how He has really done that for me.
The years ahead
This year, my directive and anchor scripture is Isaiah 54:2-4.
God is making it clear to me- to enlarge, stretch, lengthen, strengthen mysef in order to grow towards His expansion over my life for the years ahead.
Though I know the road ahead will be challenging, but I’m confident that God is faithful and true.
I want not only to grow to know the word of God more, but to know the God of the word even more. I don’t want just to be informed, but be transformed.
I’m not content in merely being inspired by His word, but I pray that I will see every promise He has for me come to pass in my life.
