My Prayer Today… 

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=rg_lNm-ZqqU

Many hearts are hungry tonight,

Many trapped in darkness yearn for the Light

So many who are far from home,

And many who are lost

Oh, Lord, Your wounded children need

The power of Your cross

As bread that is broken, use our lives

As wine that is poured out, a willing sacrifice

Empower us, Father, to share the love of Christ

As bread that is broken Lord, use our lives

Help us to begin where we are.

Help us love the people near to our hearts

Then give our faith a mission field

Wherever You may call

Lord, love Your world through each of us,

Until we’ve touched them all 

How to Survive Valentines Day

For the single person, Valentines can be one of the the loneliest and toughest days on the calendar.

Having gone through a painful heartbreak just two days just before Valentines in the past, I can identify a little with how one must feel. I was also the kind of girl in high school who received no flowers, gifts or notes on that dreadful day whilst other friends were beneficiaries of cards, dates, cutesy whatchamacallits. One piece of chocolate also tak ada. 🙂

But here were some things that helped me as the years go by.

1. Know that not every couple celebrates Valentines. (Nick and I don’t.)

2. Avoid Facebook and social media like a plague. Not everyone is affected by social media and comparison but know yourself and your weak points.

3. Overcome self pity and envy by doing something for someone else! Especially if you do enjoy making special dates special, then go ahead! Cook dinner for your family, make little parcels of treats for your nephews/nieces/friends… In seeking out to bring joy to others, you will find joy yourself.

4. Invest in others’ marriages (your time, your gifts). Baby sit your friends’ children so that they can have a romantic night out. Whatever you hope to receive in the future, invest it now in someone else. Your turn will come someday.

5. A piece of advice I love from Elisabeth Elliot for young unmarried women – don’t chase boys.

This post is inspired (in the wee hours of the morning) by my mother who was (and is), always thoughtful and kind. She has blessed many with her generosity, friendship and caring ways. What I’ve mentioned above are only things I have learned through observing her example.

My mother continues to be my role model. She has never once flaunted her blessings, but is always considerate of the feelings of those around her.

Mum, this post is dedicated to you.

Happy Valentines Day. ❤

Will you pray for me?

Taken from my beloved’s blog. Would you pray for us?

This life I owe

“… On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us,
as you help us by your prayers.” 
.2 Corinthians 1:8-11……….

“Pray for Timothy, pray for Titus, pray for Barnabas and John Mark, pray for the saints, pray for those without Christ, pray for me, pray, pray, pray…”

The apostle Paul explicitly exhorts his disciples to pray in twelve of the fourteen New Testament letters he penned (assuming Pauline authorship of Hebrews). Ten of the fourteen finds him either thanking the saints or doggedly reminding them of his heartfelt desire for their intercessions. Why all this emphasis on prayer? Because Paul knew that his physical survival rested upon the petitions of God’s people! It was an aching awareness that fruitful ministry and the preservation of his very life depended upon the grace of…

May the Lord Find Us Faithful

To my brother, who means a lot to me.
This song is for you, Dave. 🙂

God has not given us the spirit of fear,
But has given us the strength to obey.
With power and sound mind, with love, the unfailing kind,
O be not ashamed of His way.

IMG_8643

May the Lord find us faithful,
May His Word be our banner held high.
May the Lord find us faithful
Every day, though we live, though we die.

IMG_8432

No man that seeketh after things of this life,
Is a soldier who passes the test.
Be faithful, be working, be running, be serving,
Be searching His Word for His best.

IMG_8420

Living or dying, may honor be Thine,
From this wretched life, You loved and forgave.
A life that is on fire, be only our heart’s desire.
Be faithful from now till the grave.

Missing you.

Always, always proud of you! x

A Whole New World

“…I can’t go back
To where I used to be…”

A whole new world
Every turn a surprise
With new horizons to pursue
Every moment gets better
I’ll chase them anywhere
There’s time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

Great post. Thanks Eunice for sharing!

Hello Eunice;

I remember back in 2009 when I chanced upon an ancient newsletter and ate up all the words in it. I found this word of encouragement in there which talks about the character of a Christian.

It was particularly filling for the soul at that point in time because I had not chanced upon anything solid that really made sense to me as a Christian. Later on I found that it is from “Morning & Evening” by Charles Spurgeon – who is in my opinion a great man.

To love Christ, you have to un-love yourself…

“Humility comes before honor.” Proverbs 15:33

Humiliation of soul always brings a positive blessing with it.

If we empty our hearts of self, God will fill them with His love. If we desire close communion with Christ, we should remember the word of the Lord: “This is the one to whom I will…
