But if I let these dreams die,
If I lay down all my wounded pride,
If I let these dreams die,
Will I find that letting go lets me come alive?
So empty my hands, fill up my heart
Capture my mind with You (Tenth Avenue North, Empty My Hands)
Life is a game. We find joy in every triumph thus will make us pursue more victories. The more victories we have, the more pride we achieve. However, alongside, we can also learn sadness in every lost battle and whether we accept it or not, we hate to lose. Who wants it, by the way? That’s why people are trying so hard to win over their yesterday’s junks.
Nevertheless, we cannot hold on to these “junks” forever for once in our life, we have to let go of these so that we can hold another opportunity to win. But what can we do if all the people around tell us to give up or to stand up and push us to take revenge? One thing I’ve learned from this life: we cannot allow people dictate the course of our life. But what we can do is to fix our eyes on Jesus who leads us and makes our faith complete (Hebrews 12:2).
In this game of life, one thing is necessary that is, we should know whose voice we’re listening to.
