Dear Raizelle

While the pandemic confined us in our homes thousands of miles apart, I praise God for the opportunity to workout with you online and use this lockdown period to mentor and share God's Word to you. My transition from pre-Covid to circuit breaker in terms of priorities and activities were drastic. I find it difficult to cope in the beginning. Unbeknownst to me, the Lord has to take away the seemingly productive and active routine I have prior to Covid-19, to give way to activities that I now realise are more meaningful and productive in God's term. 

In hindsight, I wouldn't trade the closer relationship that we have now, the chickahan moments and the little discoveries as I get to know you better during our sharing, with my active lifestyle in the past. The best part is,  I am still active together with you. Not just physically active but spiritually and emotionally committed.

It is my utmost prayer that you will not only grow up to be physically strong, because I know you will. You may not realise it now but you are stronger than you think you are. Not only you are academically capable, you also have the discipline and patience to thrive. But I also do pray that you will grow up to have a genuine relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ and an understanding that you are His precious daughter. You have a perfect Father in heaven watching over you. No matter what happens to you now and in your future, He has your best interests and you can always count on Him. And when time comes that you will have to make your own decision in life, no matter how small or big it is, I pray that you will always choose to do what is right and what would bring honour to God.

Here's a listing of all the memory verses that we have been studying and memorising so far. I do hope that these messages from the Bible will shed some light to you.

If you love me, keep my commands. -- John 14:15

Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” -- John 13:7

A person may think their own ways are right, but the Lord weighs the heart. -- Proverbs 21:2

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. -- Jeremiah 29:11

P.S.
These growing nine verses is a wonderful reminder that we have been working out and studying bible verses together in the past nine weeks as well. Indeed, time flies when you're having fun :D
