Two roads diverged on a lonely road, and I, I took the path less travelled by, and that has made all the difference.

A New Season

Fear, anxiety – they have been my chains for far too long. For too long I’ve let the hurts of the past be the chains that hold me back…

But no more. It is time to enter a new season. It is time to trust again, to love again, to be vulnerable again… to feel again. To take a step out of my comfort zone, out of the circle of fear and anxiety and into the realm of faith!

I’ve always been too afraid to take the first step out of where I’m comfortable with, but I’m going to give it a try. With a new season comes new opportunities, and I don’t want to be found being someone who missed her destiny.

Faith! Knowing I’m not alone makes it so much better, knowing that above all else – God is the rock whom I stand on, and my identity and security is in Him and Him alone.

Here’s to the future.

The buck stops with me.

Opened my Scribd today and relooked at this book, one that has so so many truths in life. It’s called The Traveler’s Gift : Seven Decisions that Determine Personal Success. One of the chapters just jumped out at me, and just feel so so timely…

Gonna put some quotes here to really encourage and inspire anyone who reads this – and hopefully, motivate someone to make a change in his/her life!

I understand that the beginning  of wisdom is to accept the responsibility for my own problems and that by accepting responsibility for my past, I free myself to move into a bigger, brighter future of my own choosing.

Never again will I blame my parents, my spouse, my boss or other employees for my present situation. Neither my education nor lack of one, my genetics, or the circumstantial ebb and flow of everyday life will affect my future in a negative way.

Just find this so so true because… many times when things happen, the easiest thing is to choose to push the blame to the people around you. I think I am guilty of this many times too!! But yet the hardest thing is to truly face your fears and say that you accept responsibility for every single thing that has happened to you… but with this decision, you are also opening the pathway to a bigger, brighter future 🙂

My thoughts will be constructive, never destructive. My mind will live in the solutions of the future. It will not dwell in the problems of the past. I will seek association of those who are working and striving to bring about positive change in the world.

So thankful that in HOGC, I am surrounded by world-changers every single day. People who constantly speak faith into my life, truth when I need to hear it, wisdom to motivate me to grow. Many times when I may mistakes, I am thankful that I am surrounded by friends, leaders and Pastors who accept me for who I am, mistakes and all, yet love me enough to want to speak the truth in me to motivate me to grow, so that I can walk into the destiny that God has for me 🙂 Never going to take all these for granted… going to set my mind on constructive thoughts, never going to let negativity eat away at me… because I always want to remain thankful for every single thing I’ve received 🙂

I will waste none on second thoughts. My life will not be an apology. It will be a statement.

The buck stops here. I control my thoughts. I control my emotions.

It is a decision to control my thoughts and my emotions…Choosing what I think about, what I speak about 🙂 This is really about the battlefield of the mind; I fight this daily, but I want to be in control of my thoughts and emotions and never let it affect other people, or pull other people down; instead I hope that my thoughts and emotions can inspire others, and pull others to a higher level 🙂

Challenges are gifts, opportunities to learn. Problems are the common thread running through the lives of great men and women.

Haha, such a timely thing… but I know that God is in control; and I want to grow from the challenges I am facing right now, to grow to have a bigger heart for others, to have grace for others, and to always be thankful!

Adversity is preparation for greatness.

Excited for the greatness that is to come, for the greater breakthroughs that will happen!! 🙂

Guarding my heart, my mind, my thoughts

“Is there a thought in your heart about anyone that you would not like to be brought into the light? Then renounce it as soon as it comes to mind–renounce every hidden thing that would cause you shame. God has called you to a higher standard. Never dull your sense of being your utmost for His highest–your best for His glory.”

– Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest

Friends are the family you choose

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art…. It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.

– C. S. Lewis

Most people think it takes a long time to change. But change is immediate, instantaneous. It may take a long time to decide to change, but change happens in a heartbeat!
– The Noticer, Andy Andrews

All you need is a healthy dose of perspective.

Come and See

Sitting in service this weekend…I just felt – we’ve got to come and see what God has done. Everyone has just got to see what God has done in Hansiang’s life, in Riady’s life, in the stories next week…

Because this is what church is all about. More than just a place I go to every weekend, more than just a ritual, it’s where hearts and lives are waking up – to the light of the world. It’s where miracles happen, where lives are transformed, where Christ is revealed 🙂 

So thankful to be able to witness the greatness of God through the lives changed every week – now you have to come and see for yourself too. Because that’s the only way you’ll understand, the only way you’ll be able to catch a glimpse of God.

Eternity

Nights like these…tired, but fulfilled. Nights like these…I choose to remember, to hold on to the vision, to run towards significance.  

The lives touched, the lives changed…it is all worth it in the span of eternity. 

Night Musings

Humanity is the failure everywhere, but when humanity is filled with God’s divinity, there is no such thing as failure, and we know that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is not a failure.

– Smith Wigglesworth

Men are fallible, imperfect creatures, but this week was just a reminder that God can take anyone, regardless of our weaknesses or our flaws and use them to do great and mighty things for Him. Ultimately, it is not about us, but about Him.
