Stillness in the chaos.

I’m not sure if it’s normal for me to be feeling this calm on the eve of my result’s day. Perhaps the Lord is gracious and generous in His peace giving.

But really, I’ve learnt that there is really nothing to fear. Because it is all already in His hands. All of our stories are already written in His books. What can we do but surrender?

I choose to stop trying to be God, and choose to allow Him to take over.

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.

And oh, let me tell you. The burden is so much lighter.

The word for me (from family and friends) throughout my exam period was Isaiah 40:30-31

30 Even youths grow tired and weary, 
   and young men stumble and fall; 
31 but those who hope in the LORD 
   will renew their strength. 
They will soar on wings like eagles; 
   they will run and not grow weary, 
   they will walk and not be faint.

And His word shall I only allow my thoughts to consume.
