“Have you noticed during praise and worship, the more you sing a song the more you start to feel it… believe it. After singing “All I need is you Jesus” about 15 times you’re not just singing along, you’re believing it with every fiber of your soul. That is why it is so important that we be vigilant with the music we listen to throughout the day. Most of the popular songs playing on the radio today do nothing but tear down what God has been diligently working to restore and lift up. Here are some of the ones I’ve heard lately, “and we’ll never be royals”, “you better work (expletive)”, Feeling my way through the darkness guided by a beating heart”. It’s all lies when God explicitly says, “you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood”. He reminds us that, “what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart” and that He guides the steps of the godly. These songs are very repetitious, why would you think they’d have a different effect than worship songs? Choose songs that edify and remind you who Jesus has called you to be. Seek more… be more.”—(via spirituallysingle)
If I never spoke a word Would you know who I live for? Would you know what I like? Would you know my favorite colour? Would you know anything about me at all?
If I never made a sound Would you know what makes me sad? Would you know what makes me mad? Would you know what makes me dance? Would you know who it is I dance for?
If I never advertised His name Would you know the one I live for? Would you know where my home is, where I’ll go when I fall asleep? Would you know what makes my heart race? Would you know what means more to me than life itself?
If I made no sound whatsoever, Would my life still shout His praise?
Cause If I claim to be His But with the same lips that scream profanities proclaim love for my Maker, Would you know how beautiful He is?
If I sing His praises in the public But refuse to meet him in the private, Would you know what a friend we have in Jesus?
If I claim He is good, But constantly worry abt tmr, moaning what makes me miserable is the very life He breathed into me, Would you know the hope of Jesus Christ and the goodness of his love for us all?
If I claim to be His daughter But live like a reckless rebel, Would you know how securely He has held me, How safe he will keep you If you believed in Him too?
If all my life I spoke all the words of the world to you But you never knew the beauty of Jesus Christ, never came to know His love for you, you never knew that he foreknew you before the creation of the world, saw how sinful we would be and Still die for you and me, Then rise so we can claim victory,
Would I have lived as His at all, or had I just wasted it all away as with the clanging of cymbals?
Oh sorry! I forgot to tell you update you
Feel like a failure
Feel like a mess
Am I actually in a mess?
Feel like a mash of strands of thought of things to do things to think through things to remember
Stop beating yourself up about it.
You’re not perfect.
You never will be
What a relief
I can always just be me
Didn’t do so well this time?
Do better the next time then
Things to remember
The order of things, think them through
Yes, all the million alarms that tell you to
remember to bring blah blah blah out the house,
And be willing to admit mistakes
But check your heart
Don’t allow yourself to linger
Don’t give excuses
But my reminders remember
But my notebook has it there
I’m sorry I didn’t remember
I’ll be humble
I’ll be willing to say, please, will you remind me again?
I am weak
But I am not alone.
Done with my Singapore studies module today! :) hooray!
Well, the paper wasn’t easy… And I didn’t manage to finish all three questions… But I hope what I was able to write within those two hours will get me good marks still! 60% of my overall grade, that’s how much the paper was worth… Oh well, what will be will be! :)
Thank you maany for texting to make me feel a little better:) though you’re miles away, I felt the love (heehee)
Yes, I’m halfway through with Finals! Oh yeah~ *jiggles a happy dance*
Hahaha there are still moments like now when I’m suddenly filled with wonder and I can’t believe I’m in uni alr. It’s like… Wow, seriously? It still feels like just yesterday that I was with daphy, megan, nic lim, Kau, fats and shi and the 4i peeps, staying long hours in mg, pacing the corridors and writing on the whiteboard, trying to study for the O levels! Those were difficult but comfortable times. :)
And I can’t believe i actually spent three years in JJ! I don’t mind that I retained in j1 (I know I needed that extra time!). But when we drive by the school, I just can’t believe I spent three years of my life in that… compound. It looks so… Unfamiliar. Well, from the outside at least. But when I do go back to visit teachers or collect results slips, I’m like, yes, I spent a good three years here alright. Everything on the inside looks and feels the way i remember it to be.
Even though I’ve always enjoyed school, what really killed me was all the content and memorizing of things. The O levels was a cumulative testing of four years worth of curriculum, the A levels was cumulative testing of two crazy hardcore years worth of curriculum and then comes uni. They say in uni, every semester is like one cycle of the A levels… Well, that may be true, but I’m just glad once a module is over, it’s over. Good riddance! it’s great that there’s a modular system! Much better than the previous gotta remember things from way long ago cause it’s gonna get tested tmr kind of feeling. Phew! :) it does mean that you need to put in a lot of effort for each module though, as is normal for school in general anyway.
Imma take a short nap, do my qt and get revising for geog, social work and theatre studies. ;)
I must remember: hard work, dilligence, excellence.
Wish me all the best!
P.s Today I am grateful for education, family, and friends. :)
