I know the title isn’t so creative but hey, its my blog and I can write whatever I want to. Last week was so amazing for me, I spent all week at the HIllsong Europe conference at the O2 and it was off the hook. Seriously, I can’t even describe how awesome it was so I’ll post a few pictures here.
After the amazing week, I found out my beautiful, red wallet was missing. Thing is, I have never misplaced my wallet ever and it was a huge shock to me. I was proud of myself however, I did not moan about it or get worried, I just let people know I misplaced it (so they could be on the lookout) and then went straight to the kitchen to make noodles and chicken. I even had Ben and Jerry’s afterwards to celebrate the loss of my wallet. Lol. My flatmate thinks I am now officially crazy because this kind of calmness is not natural.
On a serious note though, I am very happy about my reaction to the whole wallet disappearance issue. A year ago, I would have been freaking out seriously and added about 3 lines to my forehead in a bid to figure out how I lost the wallet and why this is happening to me. Now, its all water off my back. I have realised life is too short to get stressed over situations you cannot control and that worry is not of the Lord.
John 14:25-27 is my new mantra. ( “I’m telling you these things while I’m still living with you. The Friend, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send at my request, will make everything plain to you. He will remind you of all the things I have told you. I’m leaving you well and whole. That’s my parting gift to you. Peace. I don’t leave you the way you’re used to being left—feeling abandoned, bereft. So don’t be upset. Don’t be distraught” MSG)
I have to repeatedly tell myself that Jesus left peace unto me when He was leaving this world and it means even when I am going through stormy situations and hard times, I can choose to be peaceful about it because I have peace, it is not something I have to find.
I know losing a red bright wallet with all my ID and cards may not seem like a stormy situation compared to what most of you go through daily but it is necessary to put things in perspective sometimes and realise that making your mind up to be calm about small inconveniences would give you the requisite advantage over bigger issues.
In other news, I am finally done with my insanity workout. Yay! I did not get the 6-pack abs I wanted I am definitely beachbody ready. I am gonna start another workout called ‘hiphop abs’ by Shaun T. It is not as crazy as Insanity (thankfully).
Have a fabulous day people!
