You must be greater

February 28, 2009

“You must be greater in me O Lord
Let all the rest fade away
Draw me nearer to You each day
I yearn to fix my eyes on You


I want to give You my everything
Just to walk with You by my side
My joy is complete in You
For You are my Strength, my Hope”

A burdened heart with a helpless body.

My prayer tonight is for less of me and more of him.

You must be greater in me O Lord.

Shepherding

February 24, 2009

Recently someone shared with me some challenges in taking care of her sheep. She was pretty frustrated why her sheep is not growing.

And I shared with her that “If you want your sheep to grow, the shepherd needs to grow more.”

I believe the message was for myself too.

Shepherding is more than just our sheep agreeing with us or doing their quiet time. It’s about them, loving Jesus the way we do. ๐Ÿ™‚

CHEAP THRILLS. hurs

I want to remember

February 22, 2009

2 things in the week that I really want to remember.

1. The time under a very, very starry night with a quaint being.

2.My foolish conversation with my fellow bucket fong fan.

When my heart goes cold, I will remember these moments, God gifted moments. ๐Ÿ™‚

Realise, take time

February 20, 2009

Take time to realise.

I think realisation takes time.

Far more that what I have allocated to it.

Each day, I am still learning to take time to gain insights into the issue in ministry and my life. It seems that every moment, there is always this risk to go a whole total different direction and cause distress in other people’s life.

I want to be careful, to not allow my bias to shortchange others.

And so, I pray almost daily for God to expand my heart and mind, coz there is so much to be understood.

My recent realisation is really painful. It hurts my pride to know that Iย  may not be all that wise and balance in my thoughts.

But at least I grow ๐Ÿ™‚

Paradigm shift.

I was just thinking, if I have prayed more rather then to jump into reaction and conclusion, perhaps alot of “hurts” and strains could have been prevented.

Ah, still I learned something ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you, like really.

Singalong song

February 18, 2009

I woke today feeling unease within my stomach.

I don’t know if I am hungry/burden/suffering a case of bad stomach.

At least I am glad that I cleared all my projects. And today is where study week begins before exams poured in soon.

To remedy the unease, I did some craftwork and had Khalil Fong’s Singalong Song on repeat. The monotonous cutting and pasting coupled with a catchy melody had a soothing impact on me.

I guess, it’s me, that when I have yet to understand or feel that I have yet to convey the message that I want to, a kind of restlessness will haunt me relentlessly. Yet on a topic of which I had spent too long, exhaustively expounding and trying to correct and yet not do well in. I guess the only way is to drop that subject and do something I will excel in.

A cognitive handicap I call.

I sometimes wonder if I am expecting too much. But I don’t even know what am I really expecting in the first place. Ayes. A terrible case of “mental block”, I really “don’t get it” or perhaps have yet to “get it”.

Ahh.. I just got it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Butterflies

February 17, 2009

Novelty exudes an allure of curiousity.

The avid exploration and new discoveries,

delights the heart that hungers for all things new.

Like butterflies fluttering from flower to flower,

there is no stopping for the conquest to all things new.

Life too short to stop at one!

All this busy-ness,

nostalgiaย  will only age and fade with time.

Age corrodes our memory, the fond things we held,

stolen by the pace of time.

Alas, the butterfly dies, and novelty lies.

What’s new will become old, and what’s old will eventually die.

Love

February 13, 2009

You shouldn’t say “I love you” unless you really mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.
