The Future is…


“For I know the plans I have for you, plans for wholeness and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

This is one of the famous verses from the Bible: Jeremiah 29 verse 11. Well, I take Him for His Word that this is what He really is – He thinks good towards us and wants to give us a bright future, to fill us with hope.

Yesterday, I was listening to some of my classmates’ conversations. They were talking about their dreams – what they were dreaming of becoming in the future, and how life’s circumstances somehow make that seem impossible.

Children, Innocence and their Happiness Undaunted

What’s so special about the young little toddlers – children in their early age? Us being older, we rarely understand them. We sometimes wouldn’t know why they would cry or wake up at night and run towards us for a tight hug. Sometimes we belittle them for their simplicity, their playfulness, and their more often annoying repetitive quests for our attention.

As they show off their proud scribbles of crayons on that piece of paper, or dance off or sing to Beyonce’s Sweet Dreams, or a Barney song, they always seem to want our attention.

Thinking, Overthinking


So, my mother bought me an Acer netbook to help me out with school and blogging. I am very privileged to actually have one! Thank you Lord, for the blessing, and thanks to my mother for always being there.

So…umm…Topic: Overthinking.

I’ve been thinking too much about things that aren’t necessarily needed. I have been wandering with thoughts and with different imaginations that scatter forward–reaching different heights. I’ve always been thinking a lot. There’s always a monologue inside my head. It makes me feel a bit weird, yeah, and I wonder if everyone else thinks this way that I do, too…

One thing’s for sure: There are a lot of stuff that I am (still) anxious of, and that I shouldn’t be thinking of too much at all.

First off, is my schooling, as I have narrated in one of my posts here.

Second, is my stance with God…if what I am doing is fine, or if I may not be inside the lines of safety yet…

Third, are my actions. I have touched a lot of topics (here and here) about choosing to wait or to move, and all throughout I have received different reactions. Some say I should wait and rest in God’s arms and not worry too much and remain in His comfort. Others would say I ought to move, cross the lines, and to seek the road that God intends for me to tread. Soem say waiting is different from doing nothing, and I ought to do something while waiting for God’s hand. All in all, this may be the cause of too much of my overthinking especially whether I am in the right path or not. The thinking is disrupting much of me, too. :(

There’s a voice in me that says: “It’s okay if you don’t do anything. God is with you, and whatever you do, or whatever happens, it’s all going to be for good. The life that you lead and the road that you take NOW is His plan. You’re in His arms now, you don’t have to do a thing.” Another voice says, “You ought to seek what God plans for you and not remain in the arms of comfort. You’re not in the road He wants for you yet. You need to step out and move forward and climb mountains. You need to equip yourself more with faith, for you to find that road, and until you haven’t found that road, you will not find what God wants for you yet.”

So that’s about it. Another one of those rest or move posts. What are your thoughts about it? What is your stand in this?

And thank you everyone, for keeping up with my blog, Greyskeil Rainbow. Hope to still keep in touch with everyone as well.
