In the testimony, there are several points which really inspires me and really make me ponder for a moment.
Now how many of us think that way as well. To me, in the past, success is about leading a carefree life, end of the day, is about being wealthy. But now, success to me is about living life to the fullest, going the extra mile selflessly. I made mistakes, regret, moved on, learnt, open my eyes and it's another brand new day, and I make sure everyday counts.
From young, I came from a below average family. I was told by the media... and people around me that happiness is about success. And that success is about being wealthy.
And you know one moment I was there, totally thinking that I have everything under control, thinking that I've reached the pinnacle of my life. But the next moment, I have just lost it.
I believe many of us have experience this situation somewhere in life, when one moment you thought you had it all, then suddenly, everything crumbles back to pieces and there is no way you can fix it.
And one of those days, I was there in bed, struggling in the afternoon, asking God, “Why? Why do I have to go through this suffering? Why do I have to endure this hardship, this struggle? Why me?”
Hebrews 12:7-8. It says, “Endure hardship as discipline as God is treating you as His children.”
In my past 20 years of my life, when I'm going through a rough patch, this is what I am thinking as well. Why me, there are millions of people on earth, why me. At that moment you wished it was someone else. And now, come to think of it, this is not something that would strike your mind when strike lottery. Irony much ?
Ending the post off with my favourite paragraph..
Hope we all don't lose our focus in life.The more we have, the more we want. I’ve gone through it, the deeper the hole we dig, the more we get sucked into it, so much so that we worship wealth and lose focus.
