While the world has been hiding from fear, let your mind not hiding behind the screen of Netflix or YouTube. Keep your mind busy and think about new thoughts, old thoughts, your own thoughts and other’s thoughts. You can read new books. You can learn new skills. You can utilize this rare free time to do things that you have been wanting to do.
For me, I wanted to study the Bible for as long as I remember… which was right after my graduation. I wanted to learn more and understand more the world of theology. But somehow I keep putting that thought aside and moving on with life. Now, I figure is a good time to get back to that urge of old and start the study.
I started the study by learning by heart the Gospel of John. I want to be able to recite and remember word by word. This is an extreme way of learning the Bible. However, if you would like to start learning the Bible, I would suggest to read other texts to enhance your knowledge.
My message for today is to keep your mind busy by doing things that your heart desires but yet accomplished. This will somehow gives you that sense of purpose and contentment of the day.
I am going to continue reading books and be inspired by others’ knowledge. Keeping my mind busy is not hard but sometimes I can be very distracting. But whether I am doing what I plan to do or doing something else, I am mindful of my actions. That allows me to think that life is not all about perfection but the ability to enjoy life through everything else.
