I’m that girl who can’t put her feelings into words. Because I’d rather not to speak it up to somebody and gains criticism at the end. I still remember one time I opened up myself to someone and that person said to me, “why are you thinking like that? You know, you shouldn’t feel like that because blah blah..”

It pains me when I always hear those kind of statement. Like, am I not required to feel downhearted? I’m still a human. With stacks of emotions.

So please, whoever’s reading this right now, try to understand other people more. Especially the depressed ones. They’re in the middle of great abyss. Don’t question their way of thinking. Rather encourage them. Life their spirits up, that’s what they needed the most. Not criticisms.

I asked her if she was okay,
And she said, “I’m fine, I swear.”
But when I looked into her eyes,
I clearly saw her struggles there.

She quickly looked away,
And tried her best to smile.
She said softly, “I’ll make it through this,
it’s just taking me a while.”

I knew she was hurting,
And I knew her pain was deep.
But she felt the burden was hers,
And hers alone to keep.

I reached out to her,
and our hands entwined.
I said, “I love you, my friend.
So your burdens are also mine.”

Where no sorrows ever told
Where nobody will grow old
Where the pain of heart are no more
Where the orphans has a home
Where nobody feels alone
That’s the place my soul is longing for

Where the angels sings so sweetly without cease
And the rivers of joy ever flow
Where my savior calls His own
Where I’ll stand before the throne
That’s the place I’m longing to go

Where there’ll be no broken home
Where no discord ever sown
Where no sins ever lies at the door
Where no loved ones ever stray
And we watch them slip away
That’s the place my soul is longing for

Where no tears ever fall
Where death angels never call
Where the crate never hangs on the door
Where the hungry never cry
Where we’ll never wave goodbye

That’s the place my soul is longing for
Where the angels sings so sweetly without cease
And the rivers of joy ever flow
Where my saviour calls His own
Where I’ll stand before the throne
That’s the place I’m longing to go
That’s the place I’m longing to go

Always be the best person you can be. Be kind even when you’re tired. Be understanding even when you’re angry. Do more than you’re asked, and don’t asked for anything in return. Don’t silently expect anything either. Listen when someone talks, and really listen too, stop just thinking of how you’ll reply. Tell people that you love them and that you appreciate them. Go out of your way to do things for people.

Be the greatest person you can possibly be and when you mess up, make up for it in the next moment or minute or day. One thing you should never do? Never spend your time trying to prove to anybody that you’re great, your actions will speak for themselves and we only have limited time on this earth, don’t waste it. If someone doesn’t see your light, don’t worry. Like moths, good people are attracted to flame and to light, and they will come.

A Gift Called Life.

Today, I’m officially 17 years old.

I’m grateful that God gave me another year to live this life. For the past years, I have this mindset that always reminds me that I’m worthless. That there’s no sole reason to live. But that changed when God finally opened my blind eyes. He made me realized that He gave me life because I have a purpose. This purpose is the reason why I keep on going.

In the past, I’d always think that maybe I should give up on my Christian life. Because the influence of the world was stronger than what I imagined. Yet God wouldn’t let such a thing. Something inside me keeps on pulling me back to Him. I can’t turn my back and face the scheming world of the devil. The latter would always put worldly things inside my head and tells me that I should do what I want in order to be truly happy.

But thank God, grace won.

I realized that you don’t need to do wrong things just to be happy. Because true joy is found in God. I found joy in living this life having Him as the center of it. My life then was dull and pointless. But when He came, I just found my life worth living.

Thank You Lord for giving this gift called life. For now, my only goal is to finish this race and to do what I’ve been assigned to. With God beside me, of course.

 

Since Jesus Came Into My Heart.

What a wonderful change in my life has been wrought
Since Jesus came into my heart;
I have light in my soul for which long I have sought,
Since Jesus came into my heart.

Since Jesus came into my heart,
Since Jesus came into my heart;
Floods of joy o’er my soul like the sea billows roll,
Since Jesus came into my heart.

I have ceased from my wand’ring and going astray,
Since Jesus came into my heart;
And my sins which were many are all washed away,
Since Jesus came into my heart.

I’m possessed of a hope that is steadfast and sure,
Since Jesus came into my heart;
And no dark clouds of doubt now my pathway obscure,
Since Jesus came into my heart.

There’s a light in the valley of death now for me,
Since Jesus came into my heart;
And the gates of the City beyond I can see,
Since Jesus came into my heart.

I shall go there to dwell in that City I know,
Since Jesus came into my heart;
And I’m happy, so happy as onward I go,
Since Jesus came into my heart.

Quotes of Smith Wigglesworth.

There are four principles we need to maintain. First, read the Word of God. Second, consume the Word of God until it consumes you. Third, believe the Word of God. Fourth, act on the Word.

Great faith is the product of great fights. Great testimonies are the outcome of great tests. Great triumphs can only come out of great trials.

There is something about believing God that will cause Him to pass over a million people to get you.

God is more eager to answer than we are to ask.

If you are in the same place today as you were yesterday, you are a backslider.

I just feel so inspired by reading the quotes of Smith Wigglesworth. I hope you will be inspired and motivated as well. God bless us all!

Do Not.

Do not speak about your money in front of a poor person.
Do not speak about your health in front of a sick person.
Do not speak about your power in front of a weak person.
Do not speak about your happiness in front of a sad person.
Do not speak about your freedom in front of a prisoner.
Do not speak about your children in front of an infertile person.
Do not speak about your mother and father in front of an orphan.
Because their wounds cannot bear more.

In His Presence.

There’s this song I really love to sing. The name of that song is ‘In His Presence’. The lyrics of it is so relatable that I couldn’t just stop singing it from the bottom of my heart.

The verse of the song quote, “In His presence, In His presence, there is peace. In His presence, In His presence, there is joy.”

True. When you’re in His presence, you don’t feel neglected. You don’t feel unlove. When you’re in His presence, you could feel the warmth of His love embracing all over your whole being. It’s perfect. You’re overwhelmed (in a good way) that you can’t utter words and just enjoying that absolute moment.

Some people complain they don’t feel God’s presence in their lives. The truth is, God manifests Himself to us; we just fail to recognize Him.

 

The Little Things.

“We sometimes underestimate the influence of little things.” – Charles W. Chestnutt

What are the little things that we do everyday but has a huge impact to our spiritual life? First is prayer. Often we think that prayer is just a necessity on our Christian lives, yet sadly for some, it became a tradition. But it’s just more than that. Prayer is a communication to God. It’s a way of pouring your heart’s content before the Lord. And by praying, you make your relationship with God grow. So pray without ceasing. (1 Thess. 5 :17)

Second is, praising God. 

God deserves our praise.”For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; He is to be feared above all gods. (Psalm 96:4)” By praising God, it reminds us of His wondrous work that happened on our lives. And it inspired us more just by meditating on it. It keeps us pushing to live confidently because we know that God is on our side and He will never forsake us.

There are still a lot of little things that we don’t notice. But for now, these two are one of the main deeds.

May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine on us– so that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations. – Psalm 67:1 – 2
