I choose the ways that “Have Hope” over ones “Have Time”

  • I am waved between staying here in the current company (which offering lots of positive things .. but also trigger negative emotional and .. a sense of negative boredom .. ) I was tempted to consult with families but I was reminded that I should consult with the Lord first, on Him offered a promise that “I will know the Truth and the Truth will set me free” .. perhaps free from being waved between unclear what is the right/wise or unwise .. Lord, I trust only in Your ways, Your words .. not any human beings .. yet
  • I developed a sense of “superior” when reading sharing of sempai about his all principle .. I tend to judge that was self-marketing or impure intention to seek name for himself .. but who knows it could also come from the motivation/need to share, to be heard .. or just the need to teach the kohais etc. Who am I that I can judge others! Fix me Lord, help me to see Your ways and the Truth of Your words clearly and be driven by them.
  • Five burdens I need not to carry: anxiety, failure, injustice, sin, guilt
  • The Message :28–30 “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I will show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me — watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly”
  • John 18:37 JCB “「いかにもそのとおりです。私はこの世に真理を伝えるために生まれたのです。真理を愛する者はみな、私に従うのです。」”
  • when I juggling too many tradeoff: more-responsibility, more-visibility, growth vs. less-time-for-family losing-current-flexibility-capacity … but even I perceive to have the current “flexibility” or “capacity” I am still not happy but .. more anxiety and less forward-looking thoughts (or hope). Right, I would frame now is “have time” but “not possess hope”. Perhaps I should choose the ways toward “have hope” (forward-looking thinking) rather “have time”
