Original Artwork by Marilyn Ang-2014
I got some time to really reflect and write during the last two weeks of 2013. It was such a great time sorting myself out, counting my blessings and really reflecting on life and the journey I've been on for almost 8 months now! As I wrote, my heart was just filled with so much thanks as I saw how much this year has taught me!
If i were to sum this whole year up, I would do so with this illustration. It was like God gave me a handful of seeds. Every single one of these seeds were opportunities- Every event that took place big or small good or bad, they were like opportunities to learn, opportunities to fail. Definitely need more than one opportunity to get things right, right?
Along this journey, I learnt so much more about my weaknesses, my strengths, how to be patient with myself, how to give myself room for failures. I've learnt so much how small and weak I am, and how much I needed to depend on Him to shine through me.
I learnt that every situation He put me through was for a reason. It wasn't about how well I perform, whether or not I succeed. But it was about Him making a person out of me, through all these events. He was moulding and making me into a finer, precious piece of jewel. It wasn't all easy, there were many moments I had to fight myself through, but He never gave me anything too impossible for me to handle. He made me realize I am capable of so much more. And the best thing, He never once left. He was always there to give me strength. He always gave me more than I asked for!!
This taught me even more to enjoy and treasure every situation and event in life, because at the end when you put every single one of these moments together, however good, bad, beautiful, ugly, big or small, as insignificant as they seem, it all came together and formed such an amazing picture. Every single one of those events were so important in forming this beautiful experience!!
I am so excited for 2014! There is so much more in store and i'm just so excited to walk another year with Him! It's gonna be so beautiful!!!
