Lately I am having hard time to sleep, not because of usual sleepless nights but to the fact that I think a lot. In short I am bothered, restless, diorganized, discouraged and incompetent. As I analyzed I am the problem. The reasons are:
1. I intentionally skipped my daily journal writing part (devotions and quiet time) for the reason that I will start again anew after my birthday.
2. I read the Book of all Books in lying position which I ended up falling asleep.
3. My prayer time has not that long (intimate) than before.
I almost forgot that I am a BS Biology graduate and set aside how Science solves problems. The Scientific Method!
1. Observation (Check) 2. Identify the problem. (Check) 3. Formulating Hypothesis/Hypotheses (Check) 4. Test the hypotheses/hypothesis/ Experimentation (x) 5. Conclusion (x)
Good thing in here is that the Lord has it’s own way! That is, I don’t have to go all through all those process! God has a different way! The Book of all Books way!
Peace I leave you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid. Jn 14:27
HE teaches us to go back to the basics of praying, scripture reading and journaling. Alas! It is solved. Why worry a lot when we can pray? Why we resort of many solving process when we can find answers in the scripture? Why puzzle (ling) our minds if we can write and put into action all our journaling that HE wants us to do? Why we figure out things in complex when all we have to do is go back to basics? In these basics, we do not need to formulate hypotheses and perform experiments to prove things. The truth is, we have the answers in our hands, He agave them already, just act and live by it.
The peace I am looking for was found since before. I just lured myself sometimes with (the world that as stated in the scripture) what the world offers: a temporal peace, a spanned satisfaction and trouble. In HIM a different peace! A peace without fear, a peace of without trouble, a peace that is personal. How personal the Lord is!
Now, I found my peace and I’ll be starting anew with Him, how about you? It’s time to find yours. In this world? or in HIM?
