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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
I was supposed to publish this last month but life happens so I’m posting this only now. Only a few days left, and the year is about to end again. As with my usual practice, I want to keep a record of the songs that made this year a little more exciting for me. I don’t have much music discoveries this year though, so I can only name a few memorable songs in my playlist. […]
I celebrated New Year with a thankful heart. As I was saying two days ago, I’m having mixed emotions about the coming year because of uncertainties. Thank God because after I’ve written that previous post and after I uttered a short prayer to God, I finally have this peace in my heart reassuring me that I need not to be afraid of the future. This was also confirmed during my quiet time this morning when […]
I feel like I’m in a crossroad nowadays. I have a feeling there will be great changes coming in the next few days or even months both in my personal ministry and personal life, and I believe these will all happen in the coming year -2017. Yes, I am feeling hopeful and excited about the coming new year but at the same time, I’m a bit scared of what might happen in the next 12 […]
Day 16. If you planted a time capsule right now of your life to be opened in 20 years, what would be in it?
Challenge time! Since I’ve just completed my blogging challenge with Lynai (at last!), I thought it’s time for me to go back to my TSW blogging challenge. I am itching to finish it soon so I can move on to other writing stuff for my blog. The next question in my challenge is all about time capsule. Although I can say I’m a pack rat and very sentimental for my personal possessions, I never thought […]
