Snapped out of it...

Been feeling rather flat lately since about Christmas, which is why this blog have been left alone for a while, but I think I'm back... :)

Just went into a phase where I was feeling sorry for myself about current circumstances, and the thing is that I've been down that road before so I should have caught myself doing it and snapped out of it but I suppose it's always easier in retrospect. What helped over the weekend was doing my BSF homework, which we are currently covering the Acts of the Apostles, and it was going on about Paul's missionary journey through Europe, or what is europe now... and we were covering his first letter to the Thessalonians.

And the thing that struck me was his love for the people of Thessalonica, and how much he felt for them, and how he longed to be with them again, even though he would persecuted if we went back as was the case in most of the places he went to (he kinda rocked the boat. Also on Sunday the pastor had a point about how the opposite of love is not in fact hate, but rather indifference or apathy. And lo and behold I realised that through my circumstance, which now seem rather insignificant in magnitude, I was getting more and more apathetic and indifferent about things. Not good, so I'm going to snap out of it... :)

So it's all cool now... and now just trying to get more rest as I've been lacking in it for a while, and I've been bad and staying up to watch tv at night and sleeping late... Incidentally, the new series of The Apprentice started last night, and I think I'll be spending Monday nights watching it... which explains why I'm feeling tired this morning...

"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
