Hypocrites in the Church? Yes, and in the lodge and at the home.
Don't hunt through the Church for a hypocrite. Go home and look in the mirror. Hypocrites? Yes. See that you make the number one less.

-- Billy Sunday
slowly, i am changing.

Whatever man loves, that is his god. For he carries it in his heart; he goes about with it night and day; he sleeps and wakes with it, be it what it may - wealth or self, pleasure or renown.

-- Martin Luther
let God be the one i love and let Him be my one and only God.

i've been having weird dreams lately.

of giving birth;
of pain;
of underground activities;
of groups;
of love;
of family;
of you.

i wonder.

Only kindness can do that.

The 7 modern sins: politics without principles, pleasures without conscience, wealth without work, knowledge without character, industry without morality, science without humanity, worship without sacrifice.

my sins.

I was nothing but a wretched little doll.
You pick me up and chose me from the dumps.
You showered me with love, faith and hope,
Bringing me up in nothing but absolute truth.

I was blinded by the world's chase for gold,
You stopped me in my tracks and took me away.
You showed me the beauty of peace and calm,
Teaching me to appreciate Your very creations.

I was brought before You in Your very home.
You guyide me and mould me from my core.
You placed me in the school of hard knocks,
In the very midst of Your glory, I ran.

I ran away from Your house of glory and joy.
You searched for me in the pastures, crying in pain.
You heard my cries for shelter and for You,
O Daddy, You came for me and took me home.

for the almost 7 years i knew you, all i wanted was to be there for you...
through thick and thin, through sadness and happiness.

this become more profound during the almost last 5 years...

recently, i realised i can no longer carry the burden of two persons,
i can only carry my own.

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature--trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...We need silence to be able to touch souls.

-- Mother Teresa
when silence falls and the world is still, who do you think of most?
i think of You and how i've failed You.

It is impossible for that man to despair who remembers that his Helper is omnipotent.

-- Jeremy Taylor
but it is equally impossible to not despair after this incident.

Never undertake anything for which you wouldn't have the courage to ask the blessing of heaven.

-- G. C. Lichtenberg
i wanna have the courage to have the blessing to do what is desired within. i wanna help those girls. they might have robbed me off my material item and my dignity but they didn't rob away my God. and for that, i wanna help them... please give me strength.

He allowed me to get robbed.

today, i looked up to the sky and i did something i didn't manage to do for a long time.

i smiled.

it might be because i went for my first bible study session here since i reached sydney. it might be because i am proud of what i've been doing so far. yes. there have been ups and downs. there's still that me that yearns to reach out to him but i'm glad and proud that i managed to resist all temptations so far.


to you,

i wanna thank you for being a part of my life. you brought me the happiest yet most painful moments of my life. you taught me how to love and to cherish love in return. you taught me how to forgive despite the hurt and pain inflicted upon. you taught me how to rely on God for all the most beautiful things on Earth. you probably didn't realise that till now, how much of an impact you truly have in my life.

true enough, your deeds and ways of life have pushed me away but you will always have a special place in my heart. i'm done crying over you. i'm done thinking that i can never find someone like you because i know God has someone out there who deserves me more than you do. i'm done holding on to the commitments i once shared with you but which i ended up trying so hard to keep to cos you decided to give up. i'm done with all of these and i thank you for allowing this final realisation to happen.

as much as at times, i wish all these never happened, i'm grateful that this relationship existed. without it, i won't have learn so much about myself and about love. without it, i probably won't even realise i have such enormous capacity to love.

thank you but goodbye.

you're one bad habit that i just have to turn my back on now. i'm sorry but please do forgive me. i love you and please know that in your loneliest and saddest night of your life, there's still someone out there praying for you. praying for you to be finally at peace with your very self.

the Asserter
Test finished!
you chose AY - your Enneagram type is EIGHT.

"I must be strong"

Asserters are direct, self-reliant, self-confident, and protective.

How to Get Along with Me

  • Stand up for yourself... and me.

  • Be confident, strong, and direct.

  • Don't gossip about me or betray my trust.

  • Be vulnerable and share your feelings. See and acknowledge my tender,
    vulnerable side.

  • Give me space to be alone.

  • Acknowledge the contributions I make, but don't flatter me.

  • I often speak in an assertive way. Don't automatically assume it's
    a personal attack.

  • When I scream, curse, and stomp around, try to remember that's just
    the way I am.

What I Like About Being a Eight

  • being independent and self-reliant

  • being able to take charge and meet challenges head on

  • being courageous, straightforward, and honest

  • getting all the enjoyment I can out of life

  • supporting, empowering, and protecting those close to me

  • upholding just causes

What's Hard About Being a Eight

  • overwhelming people with my bluntness; scaring them away when I don't
    intend to

  • being restless and impatient with others' incompetence

  • sticking my neck out for people and receiving no appreciation for it

  • never forgetting injuries or injustices

  • putting too much pressure on myself

  • getting high blood pressure when people don't obey the rules or when
    things don't go right

Eights as Children Often

  • are independent; have an inner strength and a fighting spirit

  • are sometimes loners

  • seize control so they won't be controlled

  • fugure out others' weaknesses

  • attack verbally or physically when provoked

  • take charge in the family because they perceive themselves as the strongest,
    or grow up in difficult or abusive surroundings

Eights as Parents

  • are often loyal, caring, involved, and devoted

  • are sometimes overprotective

  • can be demanding, controlling, and rigid

    God does not discipline us to subdue us, but to condition us for a life of usefulness and blessedness.

    -- Billy Graham
    there was a time when i constantly complained and lamented about my fate. how i always seem to pick out the rotten apple from a supposedly good barrel. my mentor and church friends constantly reassured me that these life experiences that i've gone through, will be a great testimony to some other person around the block. they constantly urged me to steer clear of my sinful lifestyle of alcohol, flirtation and sorts.

    i constantly rejected with the common excuse of i'm not ready.

    but when am i ever ready? i don't think i ever will be. i'm just too fixated with my current destructive lifestyle. maybe, just maybe, then i will be able to see them in 10 years time. it's a long time but it's a short time as well. i miss them. i really do. mum thinks i should learn to let go but i can't seem to.

    every night as i awake from my nightmares, i wish both of you were there to soothe me back to sleep. every single minute i spent thinking of him and how things could have been, i wish both of you were there to tell me that everything will be fine. i miss both of you so much. nothing has felt the same since both of you left me.

    i'm numb. so numb. take me home.

    One of the ways that our faith expresses itself is by our ability to be still, to be present, and not to panic or lose perspective. God still does his best work in the most difficult of circumstances.

    -- Tim Hansel
    i hope so cos i don't think i'm doing much for myself.

    The righteousness of the blameless makes a straight way for them, but the wicked are brought down by their own wickedness.

    Proverbs 11:5, New International Version
    so am i righteous or wicked?

    There is only one relationship that matters, and that is your personal relationship to a personal Redeemer and Lord. Let everything else go, but maintain that at all cost, and God will fulfill His purpose through your life. (This includes meeting the needs of your heart.) One individual life may be of priceless value to God's purposes, and yours may be that life.

    -- Oswald Chambers

    honestly speaking, i don't know what matters anymore. i feel so numb.

    i think i'm so pathetic.
    after all that you've done to me, i still miss and love you.

    so pathetic.

    i miss you so much.
    you have no idea how every day i'm blaming myself for what has become of you.
    i'm sorry for being such a pathetic and negative influence in your life.

    God's promises are like the stars: the darker the night, the brighter they shine.

    i'm hanging on to you, o Lord.

    If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.

    someone who brought me up in his own distinct manner along with his wife.
    struggled to ignore the similarities.

    i feel as if i'm in denial.
    bordering on hatred and love.
    i've never been so disgusted by any one person to this extent yet a part of me goes out to you in sympathy.

    i loved a man that knew what respect meant.
    but i no longer know this man as well.
    i loved a man who knew how important trust is,
    but he destroyed the very fundamental of it all.

    i loved the man that you once were - matured, respectable and considerate.
    now, you're the monster that i've always been in fear of; always dread.

    the betrayal that you subjected me to can never be reversed.
    everything that we once shared, we once had, we once embraced,
    they have all been destroyed.
