The last few weeks I’ve been consumed with doing assessments, one in particular which was my contemporary theology subject. I spent two weeks on it and I’m still going on this assessment, trying to understand all the different concepts and I still don’t get it. Over this past week, I’m just reminded that though theology is important, it is not dogma for my faith. Though all these perspectives on understanding the Word is important, what truly matters is God’s love. Love is why I have a relationship with God. Love is why Jesus died on the Cross. Love is what … Continue reading Love – all that matters.
God is continually speaking to us, it’s just whether we are looking out for Him and listening for His voice. Honestly, I haven’t been good with this at all. With the busyness of life and just constantly being switched on with technology, I definitely have not being keeping a ear out for what He’s trying to speak to me. It’s something that I know I need to get better at and be more intentional with, by learning to take things slower, creating space for Him to speak to me and just being more attentive to His voice in whatever I’m … Continue reading He is whispering.
(image is from the live stream on Bethel’s youtube) On Friday I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid which explains why I’ve been feeling so tired and having constant aches in my body the last few days. At the moment, we’re just waiting for a month to see what happens, as I went from having an overactive thyroid (Graves disease to be exact) to an underactive thyroid, so we’re just hoping that now that I’m off medication, my thyroid function will go back to normal. Anyway when I found out I was a little deflated just because this is yet … Continue reading The power of worship.
“You are designed to live as who the Designer has design you to be.” It’s a simple yet a very powerful one liner. Yet I wonder how many people don’t live as who they’re meant to be because they’re trying … Continue reading Seeking approval.
Raw moment // God the Father. It might because we were asked in class on Thursday who the Father means to us or maybe cause I’ve been sick and my mind is a little foggy. But today while I was reading the prodigal son I was reminded of an image I had 2 nights ago while I was trying to fall asleep that encouraged me and I hope it does the same for you and reminds you of how good God is. The image was of the Father and me. It started of with me in His arms and then … Continue reading Raw Moments.
Raw moment // This past semester because of a certain subject I was reminded of some memories of my last year that I’ve tried to hide. I could not figure out why talking about depression and suicidal thoughts affected me so much. And it was only during this break that I realised the reason. When my friend found out I was taking medications for depression, I had the sudden urge to gloss over it, to hide it and make it sound like it was nothing. And it was then when I had an inkling maybe it was shame that I … Continue reading Raw moments.
Dear Jesus, I feel like I can’t do this anymore. I’m running out of strength to continue this fight. I’m tired of this up and down phases. I hate that I can have some good days and everything is going … Continue reading A letter to Jesus in the midst of chaos.
Raw moment // Today in chapel, I had a picture of a little girl walking with Jesus, just staring at Him in awe. Then it goes to a young girl walking on water with Jesus. She was afraid but still holding on to Jesus and Jesus was comforting her and holding her hand. Then it goes to a young lady, walking with Jesus, in a garden just chatting with Him, enjoying being in His presence. This image brought me so much comfort. And it was just like Jesus was saying to me: “Keep your eyes on Me. Take one step … Continue reading Raw Moments.
