Put prayer first seeking God
Then he listens intently
Closing with prayer

Confounded my wrong mindset

Listen to His will
All relationship will fall into place

Uncle WY to listen with understanding and pray on the relationship issue between Business mentor and I. Some relationships are gone. Some relationships are good to keep. He shares about his church issue who talk behind the pastor’s back. This person leaves. Great to hear that my belief is according to God’s teaching to confront in person. I share the qualities I like from Business mentor. Lately, there are so many misunderstandings. He prays for me to leave our misunderstanding to God and let Him to deal with her due to my slowness.
Suddenly, a sister in Christ explains another perspective from Matthew 10:37.
Who is my master? Relationships?
Matt 10:37 “anyone who loves his father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. Anyone who loves his son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.”
Jesus is not asking us to hate our loved ones. What He means is that we should not love our family so much as to keep us from doing what God wants us to do.
When we put God first, all other relationships fall into proper place. Our love for God will govern the demands on our time, priorities and God’s call on our lives.
God is so timely and to give me another perspective from the scripture. So I send this to Uncle WY and confess to God and him, “Uncle WY, I have sinned against God to care about relationships. I thought caring about relationships is to give a good testimony. Thank God to realize that care about relationships is in my nature too. I almost lose myself and my own voice too. No wonder I wish to have Christian parents.” He comforts me of God’s forgiveness, “Hey Yoshiko, dun worry, Our GOD always wants to forgive us when we come to JESUS in total Repentence ok? The Lord is merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy. He will not always strive with us, Nor will He keep His anger forever. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, Nor punished us according to our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; As a father pities his children, So the Lord pities those who fear Him. As for man, his days are like grass; As a flower of the field, so he flourishes. But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting On those who fear Him, And His righteousness to children’s children, And so as we really really(100%) put Our GOD, above everything, our beloved families, our talents,, our possessions wch we can never bring along with us, our eveything, HE will take over our lives, our thots, we desires, our will, our future, our families(husband, kids) n Bless us. Matt6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”
Lord, please open the animation industry door where I can contribute my part in Your kingdom.
Then I call DK, the animation school founder. He explains about the character design masterclass and the animation IP business.
I wish to have the continuous friendship with Business mentor if the Lord permits though she is so straightforward, too assertive and too opinionated. Please work in her heart too. You let us meet and give me the opportunity to be friends and show my appreciation. The bible study on Faith vs Fear v1 has been echoing about close relationship with God. LT shares it is likened to have a close relationship with an obedient child. Thereby whenever the child asks for anything, as a parent you just want to give it to that child. Business mentor comes as a result of my prayer.
At night, I speak my heart through WhatsApp, “LT I have answered the bible study for the faith versus fear 2. I feel so peaceful and I can understand your message clearly for the part 1. Thanks a lot for your clear explanation. Because I can relate to it through my observations and relationship in my family.” She answers with a thumbs up emoticon.
Wish you all have good days and thank you.
