God is really awesome. Here's something interesting about my quiet time for last night and this morning.
So last night, my quiet time talked about how God will pull us out of dark and troubling situations when we put our trust in Him and rely on Him to help us.
'...Let him who walks in the dark, and walks not in the light, trust in the name of the Lord, and rely on his God' -Isaiah 50:10
So then I'm sitting here thinking how does this apply to my life. Am I in a situation where I'm walking in the dark. And I could not think of one currently. Like I knew that with what's been happening at home, God has really been pushing my heart to lean on His - And God is so faithful. He really delivered us. =)
However, that was not a 'darkness' that I was experiencing at the moment, so I kept thinking. I sat in silence, waiting. Then I asked God, "Lord, please dear Lord, I want a breakthrough in my life,"
This morning I woke up, and except for the neck ache, I felt really good. Refreshed. So then I opened my morning devotional and this is what it read:
Answers will come: 'Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring.' -Psalm 27:14
The devotional read that we should not back down just when we start to feel a bit dry in Spirit or, even worse, dropped down into the darkness. How the answers will come to us eventually, but we must cling to God and obey Him in everything. With obedience comes revelation. =D
This was God telling me that it was not the time yet for Him to reveal something more of His plan for me. So I will wait patiently for Him.
Last night I took the three boys, Chris, Sam and David to catch The International. It was about an agent in his attempt to bring down the world's biggest international bank, which he suspects of funding terrorism in the East.
So the movie started very well. It was basically taking the most intense part of this whole chase-down and putting it on the big screen. The start was good in the sense that it made you want to know what exactly happened and what was going to happen.
Sadly the movie didn't end well. It was cut off too abruptly and there was not much development in the climax. And well, there wasn't a resolution at all; which actually makes sense and is realistic, if you think about it. You don't just kill a couple of men, and expect a bank that has huge resources of manpower to fall.
Clive Owen was all right, though I thought he looked too intense throughout the whole film. The character had serious anger management issues. There was one scene where he was walking on the street, with the wind blowing at his blazer and overcoat - that actually made him look dashing for a bit. Hahahahahhahahah xD
I actually thought Naomi Watts was slightly better in the acting, but I can't say she was great either. Ah well, at least we got to watch it once, and watch the trailers x)
