Thy Faithfulness

Posted by Ruok On December - 25 - 2006

Six years ago, I was stuck in a rut and was wondering if I should ever pursue this passion of mine. I didn’t think it was much of a sign then that my very first foray into screen acting would be a featured extra part in an evangelistic true life story about how an ex gangster turned over a new leaf.

I actually played two roles in the short film, first as the main character’s henchman, and then as a gangster who was killed by the main character.

That day, I lost quite a bit of my ego as well as one half of my sandals to that big longkang (drain) we were filming in. My dying scene, which I have always prided myself for doing well on stage, required about seven takes, and I even had the director suaning me that I was the “star” of the show. And on top of this, I had to limp my way home with my wounded pride because one half of my sandals was stuck somewhere at the bottom of the longkang.

But strangely enough, I wasn’t disheartened by it. In fact, it just made me more determined to get the hang of it. And by the many doors You’ve opened for me ever since, I reckon You approve as well.

The going was definitely tough and time and time again, I’ve wondered if maybe I had deluded myself into thinking this was all part of Your plan. And I guess I felt this even more strongly this year. But just when I’m on the verge of really calling it quits, lo and behold, You stepped in and encourage me again. I take my recent change in grade as a sign of encouragement from You to keep on fighting the fight.

People have lauded me for my perseverance, but you know what, its really, really Thy faithfulness instead.

Happy Birthday Lord.

And to all my readers, may you all be blessed with the merriest of Christmas. :)
