I took the chance to visit Logos Hope this afternoon. Although I didn’t spend a lot on the books, the parking fee broke my wallet. I guess I forgot that it’s the weekend. Although I am free, everyone else seems to be free too. There was a long queue.
On my way back, while climbing up a flight of stairs, I grew impatient when things started slowing down. Then I saw a little boy walking up the stairs. He must’ve been semi-excited, and tired at the same time. Since he was getting tired, he slowed down and by that, everyone else slowed down. He gave up halfway and started crying. Of course, he thought he was alone. With his shoulders slumped, he cried and his voice filled the walkway. However, his father was right behind him. He had been there all the time, allowing the little boy to walk, but just when the boy couldn’t do it anymore, his father carried him up.
It reminded me of life. We are sometimes so eager to do things on our own. Then, when we get tired, everything in life just seems stagnant and we wonder what’s happening. We think we are alone but we are not. Our Heavenly Father watches over us and is always there for us. Like this father, He’s there to carry us
It’s amazing that we have a God that never gets tired. Our Abba Father is our keeper.
Psalm 121:5-8 New King James Version (NKJV)
5 The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade at your right hand.
6 The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul.
8 The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore.
