Tonight is different. All the lights are tuned on, I'm wide awake and I've just finished watching Cyril Ramaphosa (our president) address the nation.
As usual, people on Twitter and WhatsApp are making jokes, some are angry or frustrated, I think he's doing a pretty good job considering the circumstances. I like that he has acknowledged that the government has made mistakes and have caused some frustration and that they are actively working on doing that less. The Corona virus is going to be around for a very long time, and who knows what pandemic will come after it. I'm just glad I'm comfortable and safe.
She was the last person I chatted to before I slept last night, and she was on my mind when I woke up. I prayed for her when I woke up. I think I'm gonna pray for her everyday, for God to give her everything she desires. She's just different. Different in a good way. I like her.
Work went pretty good today, I got through more than I thought I would and I'm sure that tomorrow will be just as good. I didn't have internet problems today and that's always great. I haven't had supper, I'm not hungry. I think I had too many snacks during the day. Maybe I must cook now in case I get really hungry in the morning? One of our sales people made her first sale today, I loved how the congratulatory messages kept pouring in almost immediately. I sat back and smiled as I read them. I love working for the company I work for, I wouldn't wanna be part of any other startup right now. We spend so much of our lives working, it's amazing when you're surrounded by the best team and doing purposeful work.
Instead of random thoughts, here's my favorite Bible scripture, Isaiah 40:28-32.
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
I've loved this verse ever since I was around 16 years old and it's got me through so many tough times when I simply had no energy to go on. Reading or reciting this always gave me the strength I needed. Right now I'm not going through a really bad time and I have a good amount of energy but I just thought of my favorite scripture, maybe someone will read it here and it will make them feel better.
That's it from me today, hope you're good. If not, everything is gonna be alright.
