I do not know what should i name my post…….

Thought of many like : What a day it has been ! or staying awake….

Staying awake means staying awake spritually…..it is so easy to fall back to my own bad habits..especially so when i am in school. Teachers giving homework and tutorials….everyone complains……even my friend said: Who the hell won’t complain? I also complained…..its just so easy. Making negative comments on others is also another bad habit which i am doing.

Although deep inside, i know i should not complain or made unnecessary comments on others. I still did it….i am powerless in trying to change myself for the better. When i fall back to my old habits…( trying not to) is like finding myself in a maze….and taking a long time to get out. I need God…

Recently i have been super busy with school activities. Monday: tutorial Tuesday: CCA Wednesday: tutorials Thursday: Tutorials and Friday: CCA. Nights were spent doing homework and doing other stuff instead of spending quiet time with Him.

It took me a while to realise how important quiet time is. Without it…..it is easy to fall back into old habits and not be contented at all. I will try to take some time off to do quiet time.

There are 10 trespasses listed out in Leviticus 5-6: (1) Concealing truth when it is demanded in the course of justice. (2) Indulging in any practice that defi les the soul and damages the spirit. (3) Breaking promises and contracts. (4) Dishonesty toward God in holy, spiritual things. (5) Ignoring and disobeying God’s
commandments. (6) Failing to safeguard what is entrusted to you. (7) Unfairness in partnership. (8) Taking what is not yours through violence. (9) Lying and deceiving. (10) Keeping that which doesn’t belong to you

( this was an article by Pastor Kong Hee) The 10 trepasses showed the sinful acts of humans.

Today i went for CCA…….taught the sec 2s certain exercises. Very tiring ….teaching is very tiring. Right now there is no instructer….my peers and i have to do the teaching. I must eat lunch next time.

2010……closer intimacy with God

Today is the second day of 2010…….I just cannot believe that a new year has begun.

Time really passes very fast…in 2 days time…..school will reopen…

I will be a secondary 4 student.

Although i have no idea what kind of challenges i may face this year. I will not be afraid for God will be there, guiding me every single step of the way. I found many inspiring words in the bible that really just make me happy and grateful.

Christ Jesus is real…..seriously. I never doubted him…..nor i will in the future.

No words can describle how i feel knowing that He is with me…just as He is with all his followers.:)

Psalm 27:

The Lord is my light and my salvation-so why should i be afraid?  The Lord is my fortress,protecting me from danger, so why should i tremble? When evil people come to devour me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall. Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will not be afraid. Even if i am attacked, i will remain confident.

The one thing i ask of the Lord-the one thing i seek most-is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, delighting in the Lord’s perfections and meditating in his Temple. For he will conceal me there  when troubles come; he will hide me in his sanctuary. He will place me out of reach on a high rock.Then i will hold my head high above my enemies who surround me. At this sanctuary i will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy, singing and praising the Lord with music.

Hear me as i pray, O Lord. Be merciful and answer me! ,y heart as heard you say.”Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds,”Lord,i am coming.” Do not turn your back on me. Do not reject your servant in anger. You have always been my helper. Dont’t leave me now;don’t abandon me, O God of my salvation! Even if my father and mother abandon me, the Lord will hold me close.

Teach me how to live, O Lord. Lead me along the right path, for my enemies are waiting for me. Do not let  me fall into their hand. For they accuse me of things i’ve never done; with every breath they threaten me with violence. Yet i am confident i will see the Lord’s goodness while i am here in the land in the land in the living.

Wait patiently for the Lord.Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.

Amen:D  I will not be shaken for He is right beside me
