The Conversation of Pilgrims

I was born and raised Buddhist,

Working my way only to coexist,

And everything I did never saved me,

For all sins lead to death, you see?

Where does sin come from you ask?

Our sinful thought is already dark.

So well then, what shall we do?

I say to you I know who.

Who can save us from this cycle?

The vicious cycle that leads to hell.

Jesus is the way I say to you.

He will save us from heading the blues.

Yes, the Good News tells us this,

Those who believe in Him will exist.

His way will lead us to heaven,

To love God and others we learn,

The Holy Spirit is working in us,

Let’s be thinking, saying, doing things fabulous,

Yes, though the gate is narrow,

But we won’t be heading to sorrow.

Be Still

Be still and know that He is God,

Even if you’re weary carrying these burdens,

Sing hymns on your knees and be still,

Til then He will lift you up with His righteous hands,

In the darkest hours you will surely see,

Light is in Him who you call Emmanuel,

Let that Light shine on and you be still…

Let’s Make a Stand

standing-firm-in-the-gospel-blog-post-980x413

You may already know by now that I like to watch stuff on YouTube. I recently stumbled on a video called Decoding The Book of Revelation. And I was like… Hmm, interesting! Revelation is one of my favourite books in the Bible.

After watching it I was thinking, geez the Christians in the early days were so bold and brave; they wouldn’t deny Jesus even when they were facing death. Would I be able to stand firm if my faith in Christ is being tested? The monkeys in my brains jumped frantically before I nodded my head.

Jesus said this:

“I know all the things you do, that you are neither hot nor cold. I wish that you were one or the other! But since you are like lukewarm water, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth!”
Revelation 3:15‭-‬16 NLT

Dear readers, let’s make a stand today whether hot or cold. I personally think that I don’t have anything to lose. For I’d rather spend my life with God in heaven than the eternity in hell! Jesus was having you and me in His mind when he was tortured and then crucified on the Cross. He bored all our sins and shame because He loved us so much. Yes, that was fierce. Yes, that was bold and brave. He chose to be with us, now it is time to choose Him.

I’ve made up my mind. ❤

Love Your Neighbour

Neighbours

I’ve been pondering…

Jesus said that we must love God with all our heart, our soul and our mind, and also love others as ourselves. These are the greatest commandments for everything flows out of love.

To me, the first part is very easy to do because I know that God loves me and He is so good etc. It is the second part that I’ve been pondering about: loving my neighbour(s) as myself.

What if I:
● Self harm?
● Always think low of myself?
● Talk bad to myself?
● Don’t respect myself?
● Don’t take care of myself?
● Don’t accept myself?
● Don’t forgive myself?

Then loving others would be minimal. I think loving others is a reflection of loving myself. So if I am like what I have mentioned above, then I know I have some works to do.

No Worries

I woke up with this verse of the day:
Matthew 6:34 NLT
“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”

As a woman, I admit that I worry a lot; I try to make connections from A to Z. Like last night I went to bed thinking about what to do the next day. From planning my schedule lead to thinking about what to do during the week and what to wear for my special weekend.

Yes, I have read this passage before and I sometimes forget. But it is nice to have a good reminder.
