Soft

Self-Control & Simple yet
Outspoken when necessary
Full of Understanding
Temperate to Godliness

Soft people are considered
Out of the norm people who
Feels that soft people are weak mentally and can’t fight for themselves
The Bible shows the otherwise

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.

“Sick of fight” was my pondering whenever I ever quarrelled with my brother and remembered about such incidents. And also sick with fighting dramas. Fighting among family members and friends are also sickening to me. That’s why I dislike war films and movies. Adding T would produce the acronym of SOFT. Are such people soft? My parents consider me weakest among my siblings, my husbands and friends consider me soft. I often struggled, feeling outcast and weak. When Jesus Christ enters into my life, I begin to be able to accept myself and hoping to live in His ways.

Focus

Refer: 14:22-34; Hebrews 12:1-3; Revelations 1:7-9;21:5-7;22:12-14 (KJV)

While I was swimming with my husband in the public pool, I burst to laughter upon catching a glimpse in the way he swam. Abruptly, I lost control and was on the verge of drowning. I tried my best to stop laughing. I could not stop it. I prayed to the Lord for help. Then words came to my mind, “I need to look away”. As I did so, my laughter stop and again, words came to me to focus to reach the end of the pool. Upon listening to the advice, my focus is clear and no longer upon my husband’s swimming style.

Then I remembered the Bible where Peter lost his focus when the storm came while walking on the water towards Jesus. The Apostle Paul guides us clearly from the book of Hebrews to fix our focus upon Jesus who is the Author and Finisher of our faith.

Do remember what is stated in the book of Revelations that Jesus says that He is the Alpha and Omega.

Likewise, we need to fix our focus upon Jesus while we live on earth.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for reminding me about Your Word as it begins to work in mightily in my heart as I experience and apply it in my daily lives. Thank You for Your guidance whenever I need it.
