Last week we had a off week between tournaments and decided to stay in Asia instead of returning home. In this decision I needed to decide on a good training facility that accommodated my needs.
We decided on Black Mountain Golf Club, Thailand. A friend of mine was nice enough to let me use these facilities for the week. This golf course astonished me. It has developed so much in the past year since we played the True Thailand Classic in 2016. It was truly amazing to be able to visit this place again and feel the true golfing vibe of all the members that so much love the game of golf.
Thank you Harald Ellison for truly looking out for us last week. We enjoyed the visit wholeheartedly.
This week I am competing in the Maybank Championship at the Saujana Golf Course in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
My heart is yearning for God and His presence. The past weeks I find myself conversing with Him while on the course. I have realised that even though God has already planned this week, already know what the results will be, I still have to do my best in the moment and be sure that I am doing what I can. (“Do your best and God will do the rest.”)
Romans 5:1-5 says the following:
“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we also have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance, and perseverance, character, and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.”
We need to remember that sometimes we did the best we can in that moment we stood in tribulation. Moving forward, building perseverance and character and not losing hope must be the focus point, forgetting the past. This morning I read a verse were Isaiah just puts it into perspective a bit:
He says in Isaiah 43:18-19 “Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.”
And that my friend, is His promise to me and to you.
