Unassuming Reminders

Just went over to a friend's room
It's my eleventh day here in Liverpool
And although its loads of fun
My neck and shoulders hurt
From a pillow that's not hard enough

She gave me an awesome massage
Something I truly love and always look forward to
We discussed on our weeks reading assignments
And because I brought my guitar
We worshiped.

It doesn't matter whether you're in Malaysia or Liverpool
God's presence is everywhere
So close to you
Just the first few strums on the strings
And you know the true reason "why you're here on earth"

Came back to my room trying my best
To minimize on the procrastination
And get to my readings
Turned on my laptop
Turned on some music

In between readings
I check Facebook to see updates in our class group
Accidentally my eyes move over
To the bottom left corner of my homepage
And photos of 2013 come in sight

How did I get there?
I did not click on anything
A picture of me co-leading worship
Catches my eye
Memories come back and I sigh

That picture taken by a dear friend
Aptly captioned
"We never know how to worship until we know how to love"
Brings me back to my friend's room
Where we sang out heart's out to our Greatest Lover

Then I scroll back a few pictures
A personal feature I wrote in a newspaper during my internship
With a headline given by my editor
"Don't stop dreaming and believing in yourself"
Wow. I stand dumbfounded and amazed.
(I seriously wrote that? And my editor did that?)

I guess God works in the most mysteriously impossible ways
The measure of His love driving Him to an unimaginable level
Where He takes me on this breathless journey
On this road we call LIFE
Life given by True Life

Life has brought me here to Liverpool
A beautiful "picture-perfect" country
Trust me
My Instagram naturally looks better already
The way this city stands is wondrous

Yet aside from the beautiful people
Wonderful architecture and ancient heritage buildings
They still scream out 
What a Wonderful Maker
Reminding me of the goodness of my Creator

Oh ya, when writing the first line of this post
I looked at my computers clock
And it showed 1:11
The three numbers that God never fails to show me
Reminding me of His presence and promises

All these are but unassuming reminders
That God drops here and there
An exciting yet incredibly unconventional way of treasure hunt
Which time limit goes on forever
Just like a child, I'll enjoy this playtime

I'll go back to my readings
He makes life oh so exciting
The reason I live and breathe
Becomes even more heartfelt
Due to these wonderful

Unassuming Reminders...
