One of my favourite song - a good reminder of Prayer - the communication between God and me

By True Vibe

Thinking through What to do
You're searching every angle and point of view
Good advice, well rehearsed
Only seems to make matters worse
When you're at a dead end
Where do you go?
My friend, there's an answer I know

Pray, when the road is steep
Pray, when you're hope gets weak
Know the Father hears through
The silence and the tears you
Pray, when you don't know how
Pray, heaven's waiting now
And Jesus is just a breath away

The deepest sighs Of the heart
Sometimes it's a struggle when we first start
To wrap our needs up in words
And trust that somehow we will be heard
Draw near, and know you are loved
God hears, and his heart is touched

Pray for the strength you're needin'
To go on believin'
No matter what you face
You'll have the wisdom and the grace to..."

Faithfulness in everything

Just a thought: Somehow the strength to handle the truth, the obstacles, the difficulties that fell in our paths, i think the ladies are doing a better job than guys. (eek sorry guys)

I always hears amazing stories about woman's inner great strength who overcome all odds by knowing there is this silver lining in the cloud still exists. They are more positive, optimistic and faithful. On the whole whether they are Christians or non Christians.

1) My sister's friend who loves her children unconditionally and never complains despite of their small and weak bodies; one was born with autism and one with a severe case of food allergy. Many things which prevent them from enjoying many normal activities like other children. Imagine no ice-cream for you. But thankfully the 2 sisters love each other dearly as well.

2) My mom who fought on for the family despite all the unhappiness in the past kept haunting her preventing her moving forward but yet the thought of her children, she pushed herself to the next level.

3) A Granny who just pass away recently. When she was still alive, though weak, yet she always never fail to make anyone day who visits her - her constant optimistic and will power to fight each day and trusting the Lord always. Her constant joyful face always reminded how small our faith is... smaller than the mustard seed.

4) My dear friend - the grand daughter of the above Granny, her faith in trusting the Lord that in the season of lost and bitterness, there is something beautiful that will come out of it at the end of the day.

Ok before i get stoning from a guy who is reading this, this is not a time to compare who is better - guy or girl. Our God created us differently and unique on our own. Yet He expect the same attitude and behaviour from all of us.

Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus. —Colossians 3:17

God also sees our faithfulness in the things we do. Though we may think our deeds—big and small—sometimes go un-noticed, they are being observed by the One who matters most. Whatever our task today, let’s “do all in the name of the Lord Jesus” (Col. 3:17). — Cindy Hess Kasper

Whatever task you find to do,
Regardless if it’s big or small,
Perform it well, with all your might,
Because there’s One who sees it all. —Sper

Daily work takes on eternal value when it is done for God.

The Power of Procastination

Seriously, have you ever realize, the longer you procrastinate the worst things will turn out? It doesn't just affect yourself .. you affect EVERYONE *guilty sigh*

Why must I procrastinate?

Why do I always procrastinate?

What kind of benefits do I get from procrastination?

Ans = Nothing get done

Distractions identified: Facebook, Singapore Brides and Punggol Forum

These needs to get out of my E-world for awhile... perhaps closing the account might help and provide short term solution. The time spent might be better off reading and doing my literature review.

Oh come on Hap(py) - stop procrastinating!!!!!!

Handling.... Jealousy

Chum... hate this feeling! I hate Jealousy! It is the worst feeling on the earth. It tears you apart and makes you feel you are a scum on the earth, the lowest, the most insignificant thing on earth!

God be with me! Help me to surrender to you! That's all it matter. To be in your loving arms knowing I am weak and You can fill me with your peace and love. Be contented with everything.
God’s Strong Hands
Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of day. —Genesis 32:24

In Genesis, it seems that almost every person and family mentioned is dysfunctional. The text is filled with accounts of jealousy, anger, violence, and deception that leave a trail of damaged relationships. Even Noah, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob—lauded as heroes of faith in Hebrews 11—display flawed character and spiritual lapses. But God never leaves them that way.

Jacob defrauded his older twin Esau, who swore to kill him (Gen. 27:41). Then, before the estranged brothers would face each other after 20 years, Jacob wrestled with God. When asked his name, the conniving younger brother finally admitted who he was: Jacob—the deceiver (Gen. 32:24-27). That marked a spiritual turning point.

Noted preacher Carlyle Marney said that because God doesn’t give up on us, we should not give up on ourselves. “The last person on earth you will forgive a weakness is yourself,” Dr. Marney wrote. “Only in the gospel can men go on loving themselves. Wait on God! See what His strong hands will fashion out of your defection.”

When we have turned back, God can turn us around. When we have destroyed, God can rebuild. “Christ in the strong hands of God conquering my defection. This is the gospel.”

David C. McCasland

Though weak and helpless in life’s fray
God’s mighty power shall be our stay;
Without, within, He’ll set us free—
His strength will give us victory. —D. De Haan

There is victory in surrender when we are conquered by Christ.

Stop Procrastinating

Argh... is such a bad habit! I need to press on! An old proverb, "Never put off 'til tomorrow what you can do today."
'll Do It Later
While he lingered, the men took hold of his hand, . . . the Lord being merciful to him. --Genesis 19:16

A newsletter of the Procrastinators' Club of America is printed every so often and is free to members of their organization. A sample from one edition reads:

"Please forgive us this one time, but the president's message, which was planned to appear in this space, missed our late deadline, and we promise to make every effort to get a message prepared in time for our next issue, if and when it comes out, provided we're not pushed or rushed into it and end up with a message as inferior as this one would have been."

Sometimes procrastination is funny. But as Genesis 19 reveals, a delayed response to God's commands is serious business. When the Lord told Lot to get his family out of Sodom and run for his life, he acted appropriately at first (v.14). But then he lingered in the city until the angels of God grabbed his hand and took him out (v.16). If the Lord had not mercifully overruled Lot's procrastination, he and his entire family would have been destroyed.

Lord, we are often like Lot. Please be merciful to us, as You were to him. We know that we should be as quick to do Your will as Jesus was. We need the help of Your Holy Spirit to enable us to give You the prompt obedience that You so much deserve. — Mart De Haan
