Worth it all...

I've been so tired lately. It's as if all I do is eat, sleep and work. And even still, I am still lagging in my progress. But somehow, God revives me everyday. Somehow I've been blessed with strength.

Dear friends, hopefully I will have freedom in a couple of months. But over the past few weeks I have been considering my options post graduation. I've been at college for almost a decade and although I have worked throughout my studies, I haven't really held a permanent full time position. And although I have helped create business ventures in the past I have never had my own business. Now I'm at cross-roads. I don't know what God intends for me to do, I don't know where my own preferences lie. They say the world is my oyster- I could apply for positions abroad, interstate and even in different cities. I can apply for various different roles.



In this consideration, I have been guilty of pursuing the desires of this world; comparing job offerings by the amount of earning potential, or prestige. I struggle a lot with loving money, it's not that I want to get rich, but I want to be comfortable, but as my Seattle Pastor reminded me, you will hate one and love the other, you cannot serve both God and money.

So can I help more people with my private practice (and staying to serve at my local church) or going out to the real people of need- in the prisons, remote areas of the world.


Matthew 6:24

New International Version (NIV)
24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.


馬 太 福 音 6:24

Chinese Union Version (Traditional) (CUV)
24 一 個 人 不 能 事 奉 兩 個 主 ; 不 是 惡 這 個 , 愛 那 個 , 就 是 重 這 個 , 輕 那 個 。 你 們 不 能 又 事 奉 神 , 又 事 奉 瑪 門 ( 瑪 門 : 財 利 的 意 思 ) 。

Meredith Andrews: worth it all. http://www.klove.com/music/store.aspx

All I am Lord here before You
Reaching out for more
You're the promise never failing
You are my reward,
Jesus, You are my reward

I let go of all I have just to have all of You
And no matter what the cost I will follow You
Jesus everything I've lost I have found in You
When I finally reach the end I'll say
You are worth it all

There's no riches or earthly treasure
That will satisfy
Every longing is for You Jesus
Set this heart on fire
Oh, set this heart on fire

I let go of all I have just to have all of You
And no matter what the cost I will follow You
Jesus everything I've lost I have found in You
When I finally reach the end I'll say
You are worth it all
You are worth it all

When I'm there in Your glorious presence
Every knee is bowed before You
Hear the sound of heaven singing
You are worth it all
All the saints cry holy holy
Angels singing worthy worthy
Forever I will shout Your praises
You are worth it all

When I'm there in Your glorious presence
Every knee is bowed before You
Hear the sound of heaven singing
You are worth it all
All the saints cry holy holy
Angels singing worthy worthy
Forever I will shout Your praises
You are worth it all
You are worth it all

I let go of all I have just to have all of You
And no matter what the cost I will follow You
Jesus everything I've lost I have found in You
When I finally reach the end I'll say

I let go of all I have just to have all of You
And no matter what the cost I will follow You
Jesus everything I've lost I have found in You
When I finally reach the end I'll say
You are worth it all
You are worth it all
You are worth it all
Jesus, You're worth it all
