I miss driving… =(((
There is a story of about a sea captain who in his retirement skippered a boat taking day-trippers to Islands. On one trip, the boat was full of young people. They laughed at the old captain when they saw him say a prayer before sailing out, because the day was fine and the sea was calm.
However they weren’t long at sea when a storm suddenly blew up and the boat began to pitch violently. The terrified passengers came to the captain and asked him to join them in prayer.
But he replied, “I say my prayers when it’s calm. When it’s rough, I attend to my ship.”
Here is a lesson for us……
If we cannot and will not seek God in quiet moments of our lives, we are not likely to find him when trouble strikes. We are more likely to panic.
But if we have learnt to seek him and trust him in quiet moments, then most certainly we will find him when the going gets rough.
When I see the Chinese proverbs 十全十美 … I see Jesus.
十 looks like the cross to me
全 is formed of 人 (man) and 王 (king) - Jesus was both the Son of God (our Saviour King) and the Son of Man.
十 Again we see the cross… (the deity of Christ’s role - Son of Man and Son of God? First and Second coming?)
美 is formed of the elements for Lamb 羊 and God head 大. Jesus is the Lamb of God.
Interesting note - 十 means complete, perfect, the centre, the focus.
DEPRESSION is not a sign of weakness it is a sign that you have been trying to be strong for too long. Put this as your status if you know someone who has or has had depression. Will you do it and leave it on your status for at least an hour? Most people won’t, but it’s mental health week and 1 in 3 of us will suffer it some point in our lives. Show your support. —Felicia Le’strange
