I wrote the above feeling really down and thought of just posting it. As I prepare to, God reminds me of what He can do.
God can heal and make anew what’s broken.
Because of sin, nothing in this world is working perfectly. None of us is going to escape from sadness and disappointments, we all experience it one way or another. But in God, I find hope and solace.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.
– Proverbs 3:5-6
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.
– 1 Peter 5:6-7
When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your consolations delight my soul.
– Psalm 94:19
Don’t be afraid, because I’m with you; don’t be anxious, because I am your God. I keep on strengthening you; I’m truly helping you. I’m surely upholding you with my victorious right hand.
– Isaiah 41:10
Please don’t mind my awful Chinese. I speak quite a bit of Chinese but I can’t write in it. The Chinese writing above is thanks to Google Translate.
Why write in Chinese then? I’m Chinese and even though I suck at it, I sometimes express my sadness better in broken Chinese than in good English. Thought I’d just write it out raw rather than translating it to English.
