​Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

Whatever human tries to do, it is inspired by nature, created by God.  We don’t create or start anything new, our ideas are from God.

Think flying.  Where do you think that had come from?  Birds.  Yes, who had created the birds?

Ever seen a flick of inflight birds?  I see them today, and they look awfully alike to the wonder fireworks try to depict. 

The next time I praise human hands, let me look to my Creator.

God clothes the lilies of the field, and they are sure more than just a pretty face….

Never been a fan of new year resolution.

But perhaps THE year to start. To change some false beliefs.

1. I can change.  I am within my control.

2.  There’s nothing wrong with conflicts. Don’t need to avoid it like a plague, and definitely not to be stressed when it isn’t within my control.

3.  Admit there’s no value in arguments.  No one needs to be right all the time.  And can’t be, for that matter.

4.  Don’t sweat over none value-adding stuff.  Arguing being one of them.

5.  Write more blog posts.

Let’s see how I go.  Happy new year to all.

After reading posts on her struggle with ED (see www.beautybeyondbones.com), I realied that with any sort of disorders, it attacks by eating you away; physically or emotionally or spiritually.

For the last week thoughts of worthlessness crept back.  I can’t recall what had triggered it, but probably to do with me allowing thoughts of hatred into my head.  Maybe that had let the guard down.

Once the thoughts are in, the fear paralyses you that you would lock yourself out from others; and that’s the trick, isolation.  The devil works beautifully when you have no one around to keep you accountable.  If nothing else, it encourages you to focus on yourself – I’m feeling depressed, I’ve been treated unfairly, I’m the victim, there’s no one to love me – the list of thoughts continue and fear kicks in.

That’s why one can be trapped in this state for long period of time.  Without will power to come out from this state, you can indulge in your negative thoughts as long as you wish.  It’s horrible and lonely to be there, but you are well deceived by now you’d think there’s no other way.

But there is.  Talk to a friend.  Open up.  Write a blog post.  Just take a breath and be brave.  Walk out of it.

My bible devotion recently has fallen by the wayside – I confess it’s not the first thing I do in the morning; neither is it something I do when I return home from work.  It is something I get into just before I drift to sleep…. yes, not very much of a devotion to our Lord and Saviour.

So this morning I tried to meditate on the Lord’s words.  I struggled for words, to say to the Lord, coz I’ve been away for so long!  Not giving up, I thought of the Lord’s prayer. All good…. then I came to the last verse, “for the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours, now and forever,”

I learnt recently that it’s good to quieten down on a daily basis, step back from the daily grind and reflect on what I’ve achieved.  For a Christian, this is not dissimilar to personal devotion time with our Lord.  Difference being it’s not about what I have achieved, but what the Lord has done today.  This last verse of the Lord’s prayer shows me that His work is not finished today/yesterday/tomorrow, but goes into eternity; no point reflecting on what I have done as our effort is only temporary and short-lived!

Lord, as I go out from here, teach me to look at all that you’ve done; instead of focusing on what I want to achieve; I want to see your kingdom, power and glory in my daily reflection.  Amen.

Easter 2016

We spoke with a visitor to church today.  She was invited to church by a dear brother and after chatting for awhile, she explained that she volunteers with a local organisation which has been helping the less fortunate for over a decade.  The volunteers would go into the regional areas and help out those with needs, without medical assistance and tge likes.  Very encouraging.

Very disheartening at the same time.  This organisation is run by a religious body, non Christian.  I thought to myself, what am I as a Christian doing and what are we doing to help the less fortunate?  Would it be a different story if we were to unite together here on earth and serve others? 

Lord Jesus came and died for you and I.  He rose again from the grave so that we can have eternal life.  We are given this privilege so that we can help each other to live out Christ in us, let us see and encourage the best in everyone; instead of dwelling on each other’s  shortcomings.  United, we’re stronger.
