set our minds on higher things

gong xi fa cai!! chinese new year is just around the corner. me joining the crowd going to shop for baju at sunway pyramid last nite. as i'll be celebrating cny at sitiawan, i'll just go for something casual like tees n shorts and a dress to go to church on first day of cny. at the end of my shopping trip i manage to get a blouse for myself, a short for joel n a shirt for my dad. not very satisfied coz most of the baju i tried makes me "pui", "fat", gemuk.... (sensitive word). dun even like to pronouce the word.
as by now u probably know i am someone very conscious about weight (though i luv.... n enjoy..... food a lot). back to the shopping story..... i became moody (due to the 'pui" thingy) even with the companies of my encouraging hubby (he is my so call ... my fashion consultant) not forgetting ever so happy n active joel.
this is not healthy. i know. but sometimes it gets out of hand. we can go astray from GOD's purposes in us. worries, anxieties, fears or even "fat" (to me) will affect our minds and actions. thank GOD for his faithfulness. HE knows when his children is out of the way. HE will bring us back to the rite path. like for me this morning: i decided to overcome my weakness. spoke to a sister(also having the similar experience-"pui" issue) through phone 2 hours ago n both felt we have to focus on GOD.

current situation:
mood : good
weight : same like last nite at sunway pyramid

difference is i am setting my mind on higher things. i really need GOD's help to learn this kung fu.......

How Giong, who said you are "pui"? I never think so leh. I like your figure now, "ngam ngam ho" really... Yes, sometime we are too focus on what we want to be more than what God's want us to be, so everytime we will try to fulfill our need by using our own way (including me). Let's us always remind ourself and encourage each other to overcome our weakness.. Amen
