Water

I was trying hard to erase the whiteboard marker on my whiteboard.  The ink dried out and now I couldn’t wipe it off.  I saw my perfume and thought there was alcohol in it and alcohol can dissolve ink.  I sprayed it.  It did dissolve it but it was hard.  Then a thought came to mind–an answer given in the form of water.  So I went to get a tissue wet with water.  I began wiping the board and the ink immediately came off. Wow!

I then realized, in life, we try to erase bad events, heart aches and other unwanted things in our lives with expensive stuff.  Although it would do enough, sometimes all we have to do is to turn to simple things.  Simple things like water.

Fish and Chips

Fish and chips for $5 every thursday night at Family Hotel. 🙂

So I went there with my friends.  It was good 🙂  It could be a habit 🙂

After that, we went to meet a Singaporean family.  They were nice.  Their accent is fast with lots of lah’s typical of Chinese expression.  But I like how they speak to me.  People tend to ignore me just because I am quiet so I appreciate when people go out of their way to talk to me first. 🙂

It was a nice sweet evening. 🙂

Enjoy the moments you have with me for God tends to move me around.  Enjoy it like I am enjoying my moments with you. 🙂

Sunshine

My room is full of light, sunshine rushes in

My room is so bright.

In the light of Your love God

It’s You and I

I want to go back to Your embrace

Your grace is enough for me. 🙂

Songs

Been looking for this song for quite some time now.  Thank God I find this again without meaning to. 🙂  I just like the lyrics of this song and I am sharing it with you.

I am thinking it’s a sign that the freckles
In our eyes are mirror images and when
We kiss they’re perfectly aligned
And I have to speculate that God himself
Did make us into corresponding shapes like
Puzzle pieces from the clay
And true, it may seem like a stretch, but
Its thoughts like this that catch my troubled
Head when you’re away when I am missing you to death
When you are out there on the road for
Several weeks of shows and when you scan
The radio, I hope this song will guide you home

They will see us waving from such great
Heights, ‘come down now,’ they’ll say
But everything looks perfect from far away,
‘come down now,’ but we’ll stay…

I tried my best to leave this all on your
Machine but the persistent beat it sounded
Thin upon listening
And that frankly will not fly. You will hear
The shrillest highs and lowest lows with
The windows down when this is guiding you home

For some reason I find myself reading this verse again:

Song of Solomon 8:6

Good News Translation (GNT)

Close your heart to every love but mine;
hold no one in your arms but me.
Love is as powerful as death;
passion is as strong as death itself.
It bursts into flame
and burns like a raging fire.

I hope whoever God gives me as a partner that God will protect his heart.  That he will close his heart to every love but mine and that he would hold no one in his arms but me.  Love is jealous and passionate.  That’s how powerful love is.  Imagine how God must be feeling towards us. 🙂  That is why He doesn’t want us to have other gods but Him.

But when it comes to romantic love, this is what I ask of God:

Song of Solomon 8:4

New Century Version (NCV)

Women of Jerusalem,
 promise not to awaken
or excite my feelings of love
    until it is ready.

God, I pray that You will hear this prayer.  In Jesus’ mighty name.  Amen.

U Turn

Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father[d] is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:15-17)

God’s will over my will.

That is the message that I have gotten.  I have observed that things become harder when I try to do things my way.  That it does not matter what happens to me here in this world.  Just as long as I obey God’s will.  Just as long as I am under His care then it will be alright.  I am reminded not to love the world.  This means I should not focus on what I want–on the blessing but rather focus on the Giver of the blessing.  God over everything.  God as the center.  Exercising care not to commit idolatry–by God’s grace.

 

Love Anyway

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Colossians 3:12 NIV

We can be stressed sometimes.  Out of stress I wanted to unload the burden on other people.  In my head I would shout at them for delaying what I need to accomplish for the day.  But then I would be reminded of the Gospel.  Of what Jesus did for me.  Who am I to be impatient when God has been so patient and kind and gentle to me?  I have been forgiven much so I should love much.

I’m continuing to love.  No matter how much we hurt by the things that we can’t have and by other people, we continue to love by being compassionate, kind, humble, gentle, and patient.

I continue to love because at the end of it all, I know God will be my reward.  In the end everything will be alright.  In the end I get to be with God forever.
