I’m Keeping You at Arm’s Length

I’m keeping you at arm’s length Because it’s the right thing to do, Because I believe it’s not yet the appointed time. I’m not even sure if I’m making the right judgment. I’m keeping you at arm’s length Because I don’t want things to get messy. Closer means risky and risk unguarded can lead to disaster. I’m keeping you at arm’s length Because I’m busy, I’m busy trying to get my life together And keep […]

Day 20. Describe your most difficult breakup and what you learned from it

As someone who’s NBSB (no boyfriend since birth), I don’t think I can say much about this topic. But for the sake of finishing this challenge (my gosh Cary, it’s so long overdue!!), let me try again. As earlier said, break up is a foreign experience to me. I think the closest thing to break up that I’ve experienced was when I learned that ex-office crush and I will no longer be officemates. I was […]

Will I Ever Fall for a Beast?

So yesterday, I finally gave in to the hype and watched the classic Beauty and the Beast. I love the story of Beauty and the Beast because it teaches us the lesson of not looking in the outer appearance to see the worth and beauty of a person but to look for the beauty within. Stories like Beauty and the Beast and The Little Prince, where the famous line “what is essential is invisible to the eyes” came from, are just examples of the tools […]

​Day 19. What is something about you that people would be surprised to learn

I actually don’t know what to share for this post. But thanks to the  interesting lunch conversation I had with my office yesterday, I now have an idea what to write. Lunch time with officemates is one the things I look forward to everyday, lately. I praise God that He restored my relationships with the people in the office that I am now enjoying the time I spent with them. So yesterday, we were having […]

Day 18. If you could have a conversation with yourself in high school, what would you say?

This question is quite related to my previous post in my letter to my past, present and future self. My previous letter was addressed to my 15-year old self. I was in 4th year high school back then. So for this challenge, let me go back a year earlier to have a conversation with my 14-year old self in my 3rd year in high school. I actually don’t know what to say to my younger self because […]

Day 17. What are your spiritual beliefs and how do they impact your relationships/relationship status?

Welcome back to this long overdue challenge! I only have two verses in mind when it comes to my spiritual beliefs and my relationships. The first one is 1 Timothy 5:1-2, which is my guiding principle for cultivating godly relationships in general, and the second one is 2 Corinthians 6:14, which is my guiding principle for romantic relationships. On godly relationships Do not rebuke an older man harshly, but exhort him as if he were your father. Treat younger […]

Wild Flower

Listened to this song again after some long, long time. I used to love this song for its melody but now I love it for its lyrics. Wildflower Lyrics (Skylark) She’s faced the hardest times you could imagine And many times her eyes fought back the tears And when her youthful world was about to fall in Each time her slender shoulders bore the weight of all her fears And a sorrow no one hears […]

University Adversity

​A. W. Tozer once wrote, “It is doubtful whether God can bless a man greatly until he has hurt him deeply.” God has a mission for your life and mine. But before we can carry out that mission, we will often go through the boot camp of adversity. If this is where you find yourself today, ask God to give you His grace to walk through this time with you. He promised He would never […]

Am I Ready to be Poured Out as an Offering?

I’ve  been taught that following Jesus is costly. I’ve always known this in theory because Jesus himself said this to His disciples a lot of times. Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. (Matthew 16:24) “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than […]
