Sometimes, I find meaningful words/verses/phrases and I do a screenshot of them. But somehow, an idea struck me today and I thought, “Why not just do a weekly Sunday thing?” Just in case the phone dies and the screenshots disappeared *choy!*

Thanks to Uber’s $5 Uberpool deal, I was able to get home comfortably and quickly this week. Well, except Thursday (pouring and couldn’t get any) and Friday (GrabHitch’s $2 deal!). Going to have to get used to the long commute back home again this week *sigh* But I am allowing myself to take ONE ride home every week. Better utilize that wisely. Heh.

Well, September is going to be a mad mad month. Many assignments due. Assignment fever! But I guess, that will also mean a more relaxed rest of the term? No idea. One step at a time eh? GESL is stressing me out (that’s all I can will say). I honestly think I must learn to delegate.

Caught the cold today but managed to complete 2 module’s readings. Pretty surprised. Going to spend a bit more time resting up on Sunday, I hope. No idea what the coming week will bring. But definitely more madness.

Lord, I am tired and exhausted most of the time. Remind me to turn to you and cast my troubles/worries/concerns onto you at times like this. Give me the strength and grace to cope with everything. Teach me to hold my tongue and show Your love in my actions, words and thoughts. I trust in You. Amen.

Holy Spirit, show me who You’ve placed in my life that I can share my faults, weaknesses and hurts with. I want to open the door to greater healing in my life and in theirs. – Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life

Nothing is hidden that won’t be exposed. Nor is anything concealed that won’t be made known and brought to the light. – Luke 8:17

The temptation to press too hard, to demand too much, to force progress, or to orchestrate success can lead us to harm others when we don’t realize it. For this very reason, followers of Christ are urged to be patient and gentle with one another (Col 3:12). – ODB, 30 August 2016

The Bible says a good tree will bear good fruit, and a rotten tree will bear rotten fruit. Likewise, the ‘fruit’ of our lives come from the ‘root’ within us. If you’re rooted in shame, guilt, inferority, rejection, lack of love and acceptance etc, the fruit of your relationships will suffer. God, I want to be rooted in Your love for me. Without Your love, I can’t love myself or others, so I receive it today. – Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life

Father, You are the craftsman who shapes me. You are the one who knows what shape my life should take. Thank You for carving me into the image You have planned. Help me to trust that the pieces and parts that You shave from me are the right ones. – ODB, 2 September 2016

Gonna need to change the month again next week. And it’s Week 10 in school school too. Time really does zoom by!

My OCD was properly triggered last week. On Tuesday, my brain was processing so much stuff that I forgot if I had washed my hair, face and body many many times. I spent about an hour plus in the bathroom! And my mood control of my mood hasn’t been that great too. I realised I have two types of stress mode – school stress: can’t control mood, teaching stress: 90% ability to control. Man, can’t really wait to go back to the kids!

Ah well. First presentation coming up! Hopefully it will go well.

Lord, be with you as I continue my studies. Give me the strength, perseverance and grace to get through this. Let my light shine through even when things get tough. Guide me. I trust in you. Amen!

Pleasant words are flowing honey, sweet to the taste and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24

When disappointment weighs on you, you can either let it press you down or you can use it as a stepping stone to better things. God, like Psalm 119:15 says, I will meditate on Your Word, not the little disappointments that try to press me down. Life can be discouraging, but Your Word is encouraging, I know I can overcome the discouragement by looking to You. –  Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life

I will think about your precepts and examine all your paths. – Psalm 119:15

The madness has arrived and slowly consuming us. Need to take some time to consolidate the deadlines so that I can have the bigger picture. But I think it is more likely that I will end up living by the day/week instead. Even with the bigger picture.

Glad that things went pretty okay this week (: Thank you, God. I realised the importance of being thankful and appreciative of what you have. If you don’t do that, you’ll always be unhappy. You can blame that unhappiness on your friends, family and the universe. But ultimately, nothing is going to change. You’ll never be satisfied. Yes, talking about someone I know. Sigh.

Okay, no emo! Glad that I met some fun people during the GESL leader training today! Next week is going to be challenging. 3 days of 8.30am lessons, 3 days of 7.30pm lessons. Assignment coming up. Omona. I can do this! (:

Lord, thank you for teaching me the importance of being appreciative. Please provide me with the strength, perseverance and energy that I’ll need to get through this coming week. Guide me in my interactions with people too. Amen.

A passive person gives up but the expectant person, on the other hand, is hopeful, believing the answer is just around the corner, due to arrive any minute. God, I want to wait expectantly, not passively. I’ll keep asking You for my breakthrough, knowing full well that You’ll bring it at the right time.  – Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life

God, I’m ready to change and live with the mind of Christ. Help me to only think about what is true, honorable, pure, lovely, kind, gracious, virtuous – whatever is of You. – Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life

I know that prayer isn’t a good-luck charm. But I come to You now, Lord, because there’s no one better to talk to. I trust You with all of my circumstances today. God will never turn away whoever turns to Him in faith. – ODB, 18 August 2016

Holy Spirit, don’t let me be too intense. Help me remember to give myself permission to lighten up and celebrate Your goodness every day. – Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life

If we compare ourselves with our difficulties, we will always be overwhelmed. Faith looks away from the greatness of the undertaking to the greatness of an ever-present, all-powerful God. Dear Lord, when the ‘giants’ in my life begin to overwhelm me with fear, help me to trust in You. – ODB, 20 August 2016

When pride comes, so does shame, but wisdom brings humility. – Proverbs 11:2

Week 1 was 50% load, Week 2 was 75% load. Coming week? Full load! Loads of stuff happening, both personal and study-wise. I don’t even want to think about. Going to focus on resting up on Sunday and just diving straight into the week. Diving…Joseph Schooling won Gold in the Olympics! YAYY!

I can’t remember much of what happened last week. Just loads of lessons and lectures. Coming home late, exhausted. Attempting to do my assignments. Going through the motions and not much time for reflection so….Not feeling much.

Ahwells. Can’t wait for the year to be over and go back to my kids (:

Lord, the coming week will be challenging and tiring. I ask for strength and grace to guide me through the week. I know you will be with me and see me through. I trust in You. Amen!

It’s importnat to realize that just becuase you are alone, it doesn’t mean you must be lonely or lonesome…because God is always there. He will never leave you or forsake you. God, I’m so glad that You’re always with me. I know I never have to feel lonely with You by my side. – Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life

We cannot stem the tide of information that bombard us, but we can ask God each day to help us focus on Him and to shape our thinking through His presence in our lives. Father in heaven, still and focus my mind, quiet my heart, and fill me with Your thoughts throughout this day. – ODB, 12 August 2016

Choosing to pray for them is one of the most difficult things God asks us to do, especially if we believe that whoever hurt us is in the wrong and doesn’t deserve to be forgiven. But God instructs us to practice forgiveness. And when we choose to follow the path of forgiveness, we will experience the peace and joy that come through obeying God’s Word. When you obey God, He can help you overcome the pain and enjoy life more. God, it’s hard, but I pray for those who have hurt me and ask You to bless them. Help me to release the hurt and forgive them. – Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life

It’s August already. I survived the first week of school. Go, me! The coming 2 weeks is going to be tough with long days (12 hours of school), assignments and playing the role of the rock in the family. Trying not to psych myself out even before everything happens.

The Lord will secure my steps. One step at time.

Going to catch up on sleep soon.

Thank you, Lord for bringing me through the first week of school. For the coming week, help me to cast all my worries and troubles onto you. You have a plan for me so I will trust and not be afraid. Give me strength and positivity this coming week. In You I trust. Amen.

After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, the one who called you into his eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will himself restore, empower, strengthen, and establish you. – 1 Peter 5:10

Many times we think we should wait to do something until we are no longer afraid, but if we did that, we’d probably accomplish very little for God, for others, or even for ourselves. God, You were faithful to Abram when he obeyed You in spite of fear, so I also decide to put my fear aside and do whatever You tell me to do. – Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life

Keep me on guard so that I can fight the good fight. With You on my side, I can’t lose! – Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life

You’ve given me great joy, and I want to display it and brighten the lives of others! – Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life

A joyful heart brightens one’s face, but a troubled heart breaks the spirit. – Proverbs 18:13

When life is difficult and we feel we are under pressure, it’s so easy to see nothing but our problems. But the author of the letter to the Hebrews suggests a better way. He reminds us that Jesus went through unimaginable suffering in our place and that if we fix our eyes on Him (12:2), He will strenghten us. Sometimes, Lord, it seems as if I can only see the knots and tangles in the tapestry of my life.

First week of school is finally over. Was it good? *shrugs* I remember when I joined teaching, I told myself that I will do my best to not stand out. Because I am tired of the politics that came along with being a vocal, efficient person. 하지만 학교에 입어서 그 약속을 잊었어. 파워스트라크 걸렸어. 진짜 미친해!

ANYWAYS! Everything that happened this week reminded me of who my friends are and it showed me once again that even when I am doubting myself, my friends are firmed in their trust and belief of who I am. Really thank you (:

My timetable looks unforgiving and it’s messy. Hopefully blur me won’t end up missing any lessons. Google Calendar, don’t fail me.  I’m still in ‘work’ mode and need to switch my ‘studying’ mode soon. Come on, Mugger Shan! You’re in there somewhere.

I miss my kids like crazy!

Lord, this coming week, fill me with your grace and your strength. Remind me that you are always with me. Guide and hold me in Your strong hands. Amen.

One wrong word can change the careers or destinies of people…The problem has increased in our modern world as a careless email or a posting on a social media site can cause great harm. It quickly goes viral and can’t always be retracted. King David tied respect for the Lord with the way we use our words. He said, “I will teach you the fear of the Lord…Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies.” (Psalm 34:11, 13). He resolved, “I will watch my ways and keep my tongue from sin; I will put a muzzle on my mouth.” (39:1). Lord, help us to do the same. Our words have the power to build up or tear down. – ODB, 24 July 2016

As time drags on and answers seem faraway, teach me, Father, to find my help in You and Your presence. Enable me to endure, and empower me to trust in You. When your burdens overwhelm you, remember that God has His arms underneath you. – ODB, 25 July 2016

I hurt, Lord, but show me where I need to change, show me where she/he’s right. – ODB, 26 July 2016

Lord, this shaping process hurts, but I want to submit to the process. Mold me and smooth me. The Lord allows our rough edges to be smoothed over through the sandpaper of life. – ODB, 26 July 2016

We may be flawed by unfortunate experiences we’ve gone through, but that doesn’t mean we’re worthless and good-for-nothing. We must have the kind of love that says, “God loves me, so I can what God choose to love. I don’t love everything I do, but I accept myself because God accepts me.” We must develop the kind of mature love that says, “I believe God is changing me daily, but during this process, I will not reject what God accepts. I’ll accept myself as I am right now, knowing that I will not always remain the same.” God, like Isaiah 43:25, You blot out my sins and accept me, which means that I don’t have to reject myself. I am free to love myself in a healthy way because You love me! –  Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life

Dear Lord, many times my fear of being hurt keeps me from being honest about my struggles. Help me to remember how much You love me, and help me to be patient and loving with others. Being honest with our struggles allows us to help each other. – ODB, 27 July 2016

Lord, I am thankful that You have called me Your friend. May I ever be grateful for the privilege. What a friend we have in Jesus. – ODB, 28 July 2016

God, I want to endure like Jesus. Help me to get a vision for the joy of obtaining the prize that awaits me so that I can endure whatever trial comes my way. –  Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life

Father, thank You for the love You shower on us day by day. Teach us, in turn, to care for others. Open our eyes to see their needs and respond as You want us to. We show our love for God when we love one another. – ODB, 29 July 2016

Give me a faith that trusts You wholeheartedly, Lord. Our greatest comfort in sorrow is to know that God is in control. – ODB, 30 July 2016

God, I know that Your timing is perfect, even when I grow tired of waiting. Help me to trust in You and rest in Your plan for me. – Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life

Our Father who is in heaven, uphold the holiness of your name.
Bring in your kingdom so that your will  is done on earth as it’s done in heaven.
Give us the bread we need for today.
Forgive us for the ways we have wronged you, just as we also forgive those who have wronged us. And don’t lead us into temptation, but rescue us from the evil one. – Matthew 6:9-13

Amen.

And it’s over! Can’t believe I am starting school on Monday.

The past 10 months have been amazing. The kids filled a gap in me and chased away some of the jaded-ness that I have been carrying with me since forever. Also, I went in alone and left with colleagues-turned-friends (: Hopefully we’ll continue to stay in touch! And all the love and thank yous from colleagues, kids and parents… ((((:

As per usual, whenever I start a new chapter in life, I’ll be jittery so I’ve decided to hibernate this weekend (and trying to ‘fix’ my eyes). Don’t quite know how to feel about going back to school so I’ll just hang on tight and leave everything to God (:

Lord, please let the coming week be filled with Your favour and blessings. Help me overcome any doubts or fears that I have because You have a plan for me and You care for me. I will trust and not be afraid (: Amen!

Don’t judge, and you won’t be judged. Don’t condemn, and you won’t be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. – Luke 6:37

(Patience) is developed only under trial, so we must not run from difficult situations. The waiting may be hard, but it will make you stronger. The benefits that patience brings are certainly worth any uncomfortable wait. – Joyce Meyer: Promises for Your Everyday Life

Lord, give me grace to embrace the pauses in my life, and to be prepared to follow Your next command. Waiting on God is active trust in Him. – ODB, 19 July 2016

Show me Your ways, O’Lord; teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, for You are the God of my salvation; on You I wait all the day. – Psalm 25:4-5
