On A Slippery Slope

I am tired today, maybe I will pray tomorrow.

Aww, today it's such a tiring day, perhaps I can do later.

I have too much to do, I am sure God understand, let me just rest.

It's ok, I am sure the children are praying by themselves, I just needed to rest.

Before I know it, days turned to weeks, weeks turned to months and months turned to years.... that's how long I have not spend time alone with the One that has saved me and love me till this very day.

I have neglected my time with Him and I have stopped "growing" in Him. There are many times, He gave me little nudges but I ignore my Lord. My precious Father.

Today, I am reminded that we can be on a slippery road and before we know it, we will slipe downwards faster than we can think!

Psalm 141 shows how we can easily find ourselves slipping down sin’s slope. Prayer is one of the ways we stay alert to those slopes: “Do not let my heart be drawn to what is evil” (v. 4) is a plea that echoes the Lord’s Prayer almost e…

Focus

This morning when I woke up, a sudden thought came to me.

It seems that I have lost my focus, took my eyes off from the ONE reason why I chose a different career. Instead I looked back at my decision and constantly wondering if I had made the right decision with the big "What if..."

I was once told, when the Lord has shown me the way, I am not to look back but run...how true are these words because indeed I did look back.

When I reminded of my focus, how broken I feel because I lost sight of Him, the Great I Am that loves me, provided for me and have carry me over mountains, valleys and the dessert.

Today I want to refocus on Him, to fix my eyes on Jesus, knowing that if I abide in Him, He will abide in me and will watch and provide for me. Let there be no doubts, fear and worries for He will indeed will take care of my family and I, just as He always have, even without me asking or knowing.

Thank you Lord for everything...

The First Shall be the Last

In this world, we have certain expectations. We expect the best to remain the best. We expect the first to remain the first...ALWAYS...because we rely on our abilities, our confidence, knowing that we can do what we do best. In having confidence in ourselves, we began to focus on our abilities, focus on ourselves and may perhaps lead us to self-centeredness...

Before we began we formed the results in our head. We seem to know if we can do it or we can't.

*Today's Our Daily Bread speaks of the spellbinding moment in the 2018 Winter Olympics was when the Czech Republic’s world champion snowboarder Ester Ledecka won an event in a completely different sport: skiing! And she took the first-place gold medal even though she had the unenviable position of skiing 26th—a feat believed to be basically impossible.

Amazingly, Ledecka qualified to race the women’s super-G—an event that combines downhill skiing with a slalom course. After she won by .01 of a second on borrowed skis, she …

Am I entitled to blessings?

This morning I woke up wondering if I have made the right decision when for every decision I made now it doesn't just affect me alone but to the ones that I love deeply.

Sometimes fear grips me...most times I am at a crossroad choosing between what I want to do and what is best for the all...

What happens when things doesn't go my way...I will began to lose focus and whine, and probably lose my faith...

But I failed to see that His Hands in all...

Today,  I am reminded that all blessings are in fact borrowed...

As we bowed our heads over lunch, my friend Jeff prayed: “Father, thank You for letting us breathe Your air and eat Your food.” Jeff had just been through a difficult job loss, so his heartfelt trust in God and recognition that everything belongs to Him profoundly moved me. I found myself thinking: Do I honestly understand that even the most basic, everyday things in my life are really God’s, and He’s simply letting me use them?

When King David received offerings f…

Remembering the Lord

I am fully employed in the corporate world and "motherhood".

There are times I am so worn out from my jobs, I begin to be weary and tired. I will whine and complain and will be irritated easily.

I began to lose the focus on the joy that I once found and forgotten why I wanted to do what I did.

Today's reading reminded me that in all I do, I do it for the Lord and not take it for granted...

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord."

Blessings Will Come

Results are often not immediate. Sometime, we don't even see it!

Do we do what we do so that we get the results we want? What happens when we don't see it? Will we stop doing it? Will we stop believing in what we do?

Paul explained to the church in Galatia, however, that “a man reaps what he sows” (Galatians 6:7). But we must “not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest” (v. 9). Doing good isn’t the way to gain salvation, and the text doesn’t specify whether what we reap will be now or in heaven, but we can be assured that there will be “a harvest of blessing” (6:9 nlt).

We may not see the results not, or may think that it's worthless. But so long as we believed what we do is right and in line with His perfect will, that is all it matters.

Don't give up, because blessings will come.

Hi Again!

This morning was unlike any other mornings. Today a thought came to me and I decided to log into my blog, while after all these years, I have completely forgotten that it ever existed.

Looking back on some of the postings, brought me back down to memory lane of the things I did and the person I was.

It has been years shelving this blog! Things have changed so much since. Little Princess and Baby J is no longer who they used to be. So have I.

More silver lining on the hair and fine lines on the face, telling a story of how life have moved on so fast and so quick, that sometimes, I have forgotten to stop and smell the roses!

Perhaps then, its time that I dust the dust off my blog once again...
