Courage

Courage is...
When doubts are all around, and say I'll still have faith.

Courage is...
Staring at defeat in the eye, and say I'll survive.

Courage is...
Not being afraid, when losing seems like the only option.

Courage is...
Saying, "If I survive I'll live, if not I'll just die... it's that simple"

Courage is...
Being able to say that I have just lost the biggest battle in life, but that all right,
I will live to fight another day...

Encouragement

Someone said, "A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success."

It has been more than a year since my last post...
Just could not gather enough strength to encourage myself to write...
Too many personal failures...

Life has been hard and the ride was bumpy.
There were certainly some good moments, but they were few and far between.
I fell many times, got up, grit my teeth and go at it again.
I was going around in circles...
It was I who needed the medicine that I dispensed...
Sometimes reading your own "encouraging word" may lift you up a little, but sometimes the words just fall flat...

Looking back, maybe I was putting on a front... and people around me didn't even have a clue what I was going through...
Nobody thought I needed encouragement... aah!

When things are looking down, one needs that extra push and inspiration,
what better way to show you really care than to encourage them
...

Inspirational words that will lift you up and move you to do the things you need to do to live a more fullfilling life...

But looking back, all that is needed is just an encouraging word,
a loving word, a smile, a friendly nudge in the right direction...

Just look around you, see if there is one among your friends that needs encouragement today...
Just say, "Cheer up, I am here for you"
or to a family member, "Things will be better bro, "

I look up today, and say to my Father in Heaven,
and say, "thank you"... thank you for being there for me...

thank you ...

What's the point?

A friend of mine just lamented, “Life is pointless”
Sometimes the frustration of not seeing the purpose in life is overwhelming .
Going around in a circle,
eat and drink and work…

Looking for more work to feed the family,
so that they can eat and drink
and so that the children can have an education.
Having got the education,
the children will work
so that they can eat and drink and what more???

“What is the point of all these?”

We go around looking and searching for
our life purpose or our purpose in life.
Are we living or just existing?

If we look within ourselves, will we find it?
If we look around us, is it there?

Why on earth am I here?

God put us here, ask God!
Yes that’s RIGHT!
ASK GOD!

Why don’t you ask Him today?


A man can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in his work.
This too, I see, is from the hand of God, for without him, who can eat or find enjoyment?
Ecclesiastes 2:24-25

Post Script :
He has also given us the manual, it’s call the Bible.
Take it up, and read.
Still don’t understand the purpose of your life…
Talk to someone who talks to GOD daily…

PAUSE

Life is going at such a frantic pace
I just want to opt out of this race
PAUSE
II

>
I want to just go slow
Cos' I have nothing to show
I don't need to look better
I just want to grow older
PAUSE
II

>
Hey, I look up the sky today
Looks like rain is coming our way
Good, the grass sure need watering
And the trees just another good drink
PAUSE
II

>
I just need to PAUSE & STOP
It's time I needed to take stock
God, would you give me a thorough check-up
To see the many things that I've neglected

PAUSE
II

Do not fast forward
Do not just rewind
press play or maybe slow motion
Better still, just PAUSE
II

Like a drop in the ocean , You’re SIGNIFICANT!


Like a drop in the ocean…

It does not matter much…

Insignificant? I’ll say NOT!!!


You’re like a drop in the ocean,

You’re SIGNIFICANT!!!





If only we see, and measure to with minute accuracy,

Drop by drop, water soon fills up a whole glass

Ah… quenches my thirst…


Rain drop, and rain drops…

How severe a flood they would cause

if they just don’t stop

Drop by drop,

and again drops by drops,

turning a gentle stream into

ferocious mighty river






Pause!

Drop! Drop! Drop!

Forming a puddle,

forming a river

Like a drop,

what you do really matters





Say this, rap it with funk…

I am me, I’ve got value,

and GOD don’t make no junk!






Look into the mirror,

You wish you could look a little bit better…

But know this, GOD really loves you,

And that’s what really matters


Say this, rap it with funk…

I am me, I’ve got value,

and GOD don’t make no junk!


Like a drop in the ocean,

You’re SIGNIFICANT!

Celebrate Ignorance


CURIOSITY killed the CAT?
If the cat's name is BOREDOM... then YES!

And also if the cats' names are Doldrums, Dullness, Monotony, YAWN...

To some life sucks...
all because there is nothing new under the sun.
We have come so far... we seem to know all that is to know.
We have done so much... that there is nothing new to be done.
We are no longer finding life exciting or fun.

But mind you, there is so much that we have yet to KNOW and to ENJOY.

We need to have the humility to ACCEPT or maybe
CELEBRATE our IGNORANCE...

I don't mind being ignorant...

That is when I would want to KNOW and LEARN more.

CURIOSITY may just be the spark that ignites the desire to EXPLORE and LEARN.

Hey, it is good to be curious... you get to know and maybe find out first hand the answers for the questions you were asking...

Maybe a playful approach towards our mundane task would bring about novelty and get us interested again.

Look at things around you, look again, and again as if it's the first time you see it.
Maybe you will find something new that's interesting.

Look at the people around you, look again, and again as if it's the first time you see them.
Maybe there is something nice or novel that you will discover.

Look at your life as if you've just came back alive from being pronounced dead.
Be ALIVE again!

You won't die from being curious or ignorant.

Don't be STUPID, be IGNORANT!
