Life on a treadmill

March 25, 2010

Life on a treadmill, running very hard but going nowhere.

Without a doubt, it’s always comfortable to run on a treadmill. Where most things are “under control”, in the comfort of an air condition room.

Comfort never bring us too far in life.

Time to get off the treadmill, into the wild, a different route an adventurous heart, new grounds.

Progression Regression

March 24, 2010

Hot, is warmth in seasons of cold.

Hot becomes warm, warm turns cold, cold turns bad.

Novelty allures, monotony sets in, momentum ceases.

We progressed, regressed, ended depressed.

Every beginning is a countdown to an end.

That’s you and me like a cuppa coffee.

Love, where is your fire?

March 18, 2010

It could be out of melancholy that I have things running in my mind on repeat. The song that runs on repeat these days is Love, where is your fire. I love the bridge. Life had been really hectic, but I want to always hold God close to my heart.

“Then a doubt comes to lie at the back of my mind
That I’ll offer you me and you’ll politely decline
So i hasten to mute it, I’ll shout and rebuke it – “away!””

Enjoy the song. It’s the kind of song, I will just tune in to and chill with God. 🙂 Holding my heart out

Running

March 15, 2010

Running…

I do not stop because I am drench in perspiration.

I do not stop because I am breathless.

I do not stop because my muscles are aching.

I do not stop because it’s raining or the sun mercilessly spares no heat.

I may be tired, I may be faint, I may be weary.

One thing, I know.

The only time I stop is when I have reach my destination.

“let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us”

Muses

March 14, 2010

Contemplating sunshine moonlight, seasons and cycles.

Shame on me to be consumed by the perils of daily life, the whole money making deal, the whole bottom line attitude, I neglected the beauty of writing.

Multi tasking, having multiple engagements, truly engaged by none.

I’ve wasted my journal pages with way too much shallow concerns. The money, the problems, the solutions.

Glad that tonight, I chance upon a new muse to engage my soul once again, to write not just with my mind, but also my soul.

Classic

March 9, 2010

“Martha Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better and it will not be taken away from her.”

Multiple tabs on the browser.

Stacks of books to be read.

Structures, plans to be made.

Many many emails to follow through.

And almost unending to do list.

Many problems, many possibilities.

Tonight, I sat down and I ask God to help me prioritize.

Ministry Philosophies

March 1, 2010
  • Don’t know? Learn. 
  • No one gets left behind, every member should be given their fair chance for nurturing.
  • No lives should be sacrificed at the altar of ministry simply because of “pragmatic reasons”
  • Everything rise and and fall with leadership
  • Get over that Messianic complex
