it’s THIS or THAT. January 15, 2010

it’s funny how i posted this quote on my facebook seconds ago and it got some thinking that there’s either some mayhem of some sort going on in my life or i’m in a middle of some crisis.

it’s THIS or THAT because i mean THIS but you think THAT.

it kinda happens sometimes, (maybe you think too much?) not too often; thankfully.

but i like to leave it as that (no pun intended).

sometimes leaving things a mystery is much easier than always having to justify yourself.

i think i will live longer :)

this was what i wrote –

“it’s hard to get to your destination when your eyes are always on the map. sometimes you gotta let go and let your heart lead the way.”

what do you think?

xoxo

p.s. i’m in no sort of crisis whatsoever and am loving every single moment of where i am & what i’m doin

the God who shut the mouth of lions and opened the mouth of a whale is the same God who will make a way for me.

regardless of whether it’s due to unforeseen circumstances or a result of my own undoing, my God is for me.

what an AWESOME GOD we serve.

what an AWESOME GOD who loves.

one last post befo re i turn in because i woke up at 1-ish today and can’t get to sleep. maybe i’m still excited about what i heard today. or maybe it’s because i had two days of quality time with people i love.

what do you love?

my top 5 things –

1. Jesus

2. Family

3. Friends

4. Church

5. what i do

a book stopped me in my tracks this evening and i just had to get it. besides the bible and glamour magazine, i hardly read anything else (tangible non work related things). so if you’re guessing the genre of book i picked up, if you’re wise enough, you’ll prolly guessed it right.

a wordless book. (okay, not totally void of words but suffice to say it was a photography book) Aptly titled “LOVE”  to tie in with this post, this is my favorite pic from the book. love how the picture is blurred and those heart-shaped lights.

love is the light that shines in the darkness and brings clarity to blurry skies.

if i asked you to sum “love” up in one word, what would you say?

mine would be – “JESUS”

When You Are Low on Hope

by Max Lucado

Water. All Noah can see is water. The evening sun sinks into it. The clouds are reflected in it. His boat is surrounded by it. Water. Water to the north. Water to the south. Water to the east. Water to the west. Water.

He sent a raven on a scouting mission; it never returned. He sent a dove. It came back shivering and spent, having found no place to roost. Then, just this morning, he tried again. With a prayer he let it go and watched until the bird was no bigger than a speck on a window.

All day he looked for the dove’s return.

Now the sun is setting, and the sky is darkening, and he has come to look one final time, but all he sees is water. Water to the north. Water to the south. Water to the east. Water to the …

You know the feeling. You have stood where Noah stood. You’ve known your share of floods. Flooded by sorrow at the cemetery, stress at the office, anger at the disability in your body or the inability of your spouse. You’ve seen the floodwater rise, and you’ve likely seen the sun set on your hopes as well. You’ve been on Noah’s boat.

And you’ve needed what Noah needed; you’ve needed some hope. You’re not asking for a helicopter rescue, but the sound of one would be nice. Hope doesn’t promise an instant solution but rather the possibility of an eventual one. Sometimes all we need is a little hope.

That’s all Noah needed. And that’s all Noah received.

Here is how the Bible describes the moment: “When the dove returned to him in the evening, there in its beak was a freshly plucked olive leaf!” (Gen. 8:11 NIV).

An olive leaf. Noah would have been happy to have the bird but to have the leaf! This leaf was more than foliage; this was promise. The bird brought more than a piece of a tree; it brought hope. For isn’t that what hope is? Hope is an olive leaf—evidence of dry land after a flood. Proof to the dreamer that dreaming is worth the risk.

Don’t we love the olive leaves of life?
“It appears the cancer may be in remission.”
“I can help you with those finances.”
“We’ll get through this together.”
What’s more, don’t we love the doves that bring them?
Perhaps that’s the reason so many loved Jesus.

To all the Noahs of the world, to all who search the horizon for a fleck of hope, he proclaims, “Yes!” And he comes. He comes as a dove. He comes bearing fruit from a distant land, from our future home. He comes with a leaf of hope.

Have you received yours? Don’t think your ark is too isolated. Don’t think your flood is too wide. Receive his hope, won’t you? Receive it because you need it. Receive it so you can share it.

Love always hopes. “Love … bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things” (1 Cor. 13:4–7 NKJV, emphasis mine)

 

EYE-FUL OF GOODNESS October 20, 2009

i went for an eye-check up recently because we happened to be there. on a few occasions, here and there, i’ve realized that my vision wasn’t as clear as before, especially while driving. figured that it was pretty dangerous when you can’t see where you’re going and who you’re coming up against. as usual, i’ve been anointing my eyes with anointing oil at the start of my day every day and i did the same before heading to the optometrist. no one wants to hear a bad report.

my turn came and the lady checked my glasses. so many scratches, she retorted. i wasn’t surprised. i throw my specs around. literally. she tested my eyes and said that i had astigmatism that i didn’t know of. my heart sank. i felt exactly the same way when the doctor at the national skin centre told me seven years ago that i had a hereditary skin condition that would last a lifetime. that same feeling washed over me. but i didn’t let it fester. because 7 years later, the skin condition is no more. my Jesus has healed me and His word is final. truth always triumphs facts. always.

i let her finish her story. we went outside to test the degree of the lenses. and then it came to me. i only had 3 hours of sleep before this. no wonder i can’t see clearly. yes, it was a night, no, day filled with fellowship, fun and laughter with the girls – that kept me up till 7. i told the lady i feel dizzy and so she began to alter the degree. 20 minutes later, the verdict was announced. my degree was the same as it was, about 3-4 years before. the lady even made this comment, “wow, your eyes are very sensitive. can even detect an increase in 15degrees. this is uncommon.”

i haven’t had perfect vision since i was primary 4. but my degree has miraculously decreased over the years. from 250 and 200, it is now residing at 150 and 75. and it will only get better.

it can only be Jesus.

I am standing on the side of Victory because the VICTOR is in me.
