In Your presence, no more fear!

Yes, when I was walking home last night after the choir practice, with Kari's song, Savior's Here, playing in my iPhone, this lyrics jumped out to me - In Your Presence, No More Fear!

Indeed Lord, I shall not fear, because I am in You! I will be able to overcome this trial by Your grace and Your grace alone. 

And the Lord has given me this solution, and I am gonna cut down the connection with JR, starting with zero-ed my check-in at foursquare, if not zero, at least cut down, and games, also should not reply within the same day, and I shall not send him any type of text message, be it sms or whatsapp, unless it's a matter of life and death.

What if he text? And what if he calls? I will reply the msg, not immediately, unless it is something urgent, need me to response. Call.. errr.... I will answer if I am not on another line, but I will not rush to answer his call. He should not hold such special place in my life and my heart anymore.

What if he reacted like the new year day? Moody, stressful.. and requested for a meet... Wow! This is a million dollar question. I will need more wisdom to handle this situation. Let's not "what if" or worry so much. The Lord Jesus said in Matthew 6, therefore, do not worry about tomorrow.. 
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. - Matthew 6:34, NKJV
Let not your heart be troubled, because, Jesus has left His peace for me (John 14:27). Thank You Lord! I shall fear no more, my heart shall be troubled no more. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen!

And do everything with love...

Been pasting this verse from 1 Corinthians 16 at my computer monitor for a very long time... nearly a year...

And do everything with love. (1 Corinthians 16:14, NLT)

but still, I think I have always fail to do so, especially when myself, or someone I care, made a repeated mistake at work.

I have been reminding myself, not to expect other people to be same as myself, be it character, personality, working attitude, understanding, and etc. Yet, this is one of the fields that I truly needs God's grace to super abound in it. Maybe I have been struggling, instead of trusting for Him to work things out for me.  

Lord Jesus, please work in me, help me and guide me in every word that I say, be it a compliment, or a correction, for the people around me, make me say word as gentle as You and yet people will see the weigh of the word and receive the correct message the way I want it to be delivered. All this, Lord Jesus, in Your precious and mighty Name, I pray. Amen!
