“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” -Romans 12:21
This quote came to me from my daily reading plan from my bible app yesterday on Monday, October 21st. I’ve been asking myself for the past month and more now what is wrong with me? I remember there was this 9gag picture from a while back, it first showed a picture of a ‘previous’ self being punched by a ‘now’ self. I cannot relate more with this. All the wrong things I could have done, I have done, and all the things I should have done, I did none. Once upon a time, in December 2009, I had a wound. Eventually, it became a scar. 2013, I began to scratch on the scar, now it became a deeper scar.
Where can I go from this? These are not my only scars, but scars that add in to the library of scars engraved on my heart. However, the heart still keeps beating. It will continue to throw itself out there, in the world of risks and danger, just to find its ‘yang’. No matter how many times it has to be hurt, no matter how many times it needs to repair, the heart will always get to the goal, to finish up the puzzle that was always missing a half; because God had already matched it long before I was born. I only need to know to keep following Him because He will “always give me what is best for me”.
Feeling my way through the darkness
Guided by a beating heart
I can’t tell where the journey will end
But I know where to start…
