“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal;  but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.” Matthew 6:19-20, KJVWell, I’ve been really in a deep thought about such a thing lately.
Not really lately, guess it’s been years; which is something between what my real desires deep in the bottom of my heart are and what the Lord actually commanded me to do.
A [quite significant] contradiction.Here, I’d like to tell you that I was once a really ambitious individual. Like, I had really huge dreams. Until now, actually.
Those dreams are simply what my real passions are; my real desires, the soul of mine.I’m a type of person who really likes exploring myself.
I’d excessively love visiting new places, meeting new people, tasting new foods, knowing various cultures, living with strangers, and many more.I want to go to the other side of the world.
I’ve written one name of a country in my dream list that deep in my heart I really want to pursue my Master degree there. I want to live between those whose mother tongue is English.
Yet, in the other side, I have to wake up and realize what God’s real purpose in letting me exist in this world is. It is to accomplish His Great Commission [Matthew 28:19-20].
God put me here not without having any specific purposes. It’s so well explained in the Bible, that I’m living now is to work for something that I can bring later on to the eternity.
Something eternal like what Matthew 6:19-20 has declared.Well, I cannot bring my high degrees and charming husband when I die, rite? That’s it.I cannot and should not be selfish.
I learn so hard to obey God; to put His dreams first over mine. It’s never been easy. Never.For these recent years, I’ve let go the plans I’ve been set in advance one by one.
I adjusted them to God’s plans and ways. I gave them up onto His hands: the next places for me to study, my future career and every personal stuff, everything.
I was a bit disappointed at first, but then God reminded me that His plans are always better, and beautiful. Well, I may not able to clearly see it now, but then I do will later on.
Here I learn to obey God. I gotta live for Him, since He has died for me.
For all my hopes, dreams, prayers, desires, He knows them better than me, doesn’t He?
He does!Thus dear my soul, bless the Lord! He is good! Work for His dreams, then He will work for yours, as well. Thank You, Lord. All praises be for Him only.
