The power of Persistence

Any God-given dream will be too big for us to accomplish on our own.
And hence, it stands to reason, there will be periodic challenges, times of discouragement, even bouts of depression and wanting to give up and throw in the towel.

Therefore Paul provided prescription for persisting when the going gets tough.
It is true that tough times never last, but tough people do.

But how do tough people do it?
Paul gave us the answer:

1. Tough people get through tough times because they believe God has a plan for their lives, and that he will complete the plan. They believe the story is not over yet, and it will be a happy ending.

2. Though people get through tough times because they are able to forget the mistakes of the past by learning from them and then focusing on the future.

3. Tough people get through tough times because they tap prayerfully into the strength that Christ is giving them.

4. Tough people get through tough times because they give thanks even in the tough times. They ask God thanksgiving for what they need to get through the tough times.

Be strong brethren, fight a good fight!

1 Timothy 6:12
"Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses."

So that soon, we too can say the same as Paul:

2 Timothy 4:7
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith;"

I Want YOU...

Dear Papa,

Over the years,
YOU had brought me through thick & thin
& led me through rain & shine
& whomever i am today & how much You have molded me thus far is ALL BECAUSE OF YOU!

& so, I thank YOU for your Grace & Mercy
& i thank You for Your Favour & Love that Youhave always shined upon me...

I won't deny that i had my moments of up & down
I won't deny that, there were times that i was ever so Angry/Dissapointed with You.

But i realize now that I was plainly selfish!
I was so engrossed in  MY pains & MY struggles, till I have completely lost focus on YOU!
I'm sorry that i had my eyes so fixated on myself that i have totally ignored & negleted on how You would have felt about all these..........
I'm Sorry for the times when i have caused tears to flow out from Your precious eyes.

I Love You Lord!! You're the last person whom i will ever want to hurt......

I'm sorry for the times when my actions spoke differently than my words...
I'm sorry that i had ignored You
I''m sorry that i had cast You aside in the mist of my busy'ness

I want to come back to Your arms of safety Lord...
I do not want to do things on my own anymore...

Recently, the journey that I have undertaken seems rather lonely...
It's as if You are not in the picture right next to me~
I am through Lord...

I do not want that!
I want You back! to be by my side wherever i go or in whatever i do!
I want Your Guidance
I want Your Peace
I want Your  Joy
I want Your LOVE
I WANT YOU.............

Nothing should have taken Your place in my life Lord! NOTHING!!!
& I don't what it to be in that way anymore...


I want to start anew..
Renew my spirit & Stregthen me through ...

I want to come home running back to Your Warm & Open Arms...
back to the arms that i shouldn't have left in the first place!!!


Your Weary Daughter,

Guess I'm Back Blogging......

Its been almost 2 years now since i've stop writting...
But guess i express better in written words as compared to spoken words...

There's been a lot in my mind lately...
And life had brought to places that i never thought i'll go or experience

Not sure if it's a good thing..
Not sure if I enjoyed it
Not sure if that's what i want anymore
Not sure if i've become a better person or have changed for the worse...

I'm not sure which is right anymoreeeeee.....

All i know is I HAD ENOUGH!

Writting brings calmness to my soul, & that's exactly what i'm going to do from now on...

Till next time,
