Someone once said that BUSY means 'Being Under Satan's Yoke'.

But there are days my head spins and I truly believe I'll never be able to finish all I have to do. Datelines are closing in and time is running out. Is 24 hours a day really enough? It should be yet it's not. I won't even go into the details of what I need to do.

On the verge of breakdown, I take short deep breaths. Look to heaven for help, for sanity, for peace. Look within for a reason and rhyme. Look beyond for the single sight of beauty that just stops time. (sounding too poetic for some of you?)

A lot of time, I think we brought busy-ness upon ourselves. We add on to our own workload, trying to balance what we have to do and what we want to do. Balance. That's the word. Can you really find that equilibrium? Is it possible?

And then you look around once again. Oops there's again so much to do. There are the parties and the funerals you should attend, the people you should take out for lunch or supper. Relationships are after all more important than anything else. But then your work, your planning, your assignments continue to pile. Then what...

But to me, people are still more important....

While driving back from PJ yesterday I saw a growing pile of smoke a hundred meters ahead. A truck had over turned in the opposite lane not too long ago. Cars were slowing down or stopping on the emergency lane, people were running across to help or on their handphones (assumable calling for help) and I took pictures.
Figuring there's nothing I can do anyway, I left. Hope the people are alright and am saying a prayer for them right now.

Today it rained cats and dogs while we were driving back. And the side of the road was flooding big time. It's been a while since i saw flood like this.

Further up I saw another accident but did not manage to take a picture. Was not fast enough.

The weather hasn't been good and road has been dangerous. To all Drivers, be careful on the road.

Semenyih Outreach

Macam ada gaya saje!~

Last Sunday, the Campus Connexion group of Aspirers went to our Semenyih outreach to minister. It was a first for this group to minister in that way. I thought it would be a very good experience to do this together. On top of that, it was important to learn to be an instrument of blessing to others. May this be a first of many.

Gratitude - Nicole Nordeman

This song was presented on Sunday (in church) I the lyrics caught my attention. Whoever wrote this song understood the Sovereignty of our Lord God beyond our small view of life.

Or maybe not, not today
Maybe You'll provide in other ways

Many times we get angry at God for not answering our prayers, providing for our needs, allowing pain to wreck our sanity, fitting our understanding of who He is. And many have become disillusioned and walked away.

There are many things in my life that is unfulfilled or seem to be pulled further from me. I try to find a way to stay sane and remember that God is too good to be unkind, to wise to be mistaken. And I wonder if I will be able to accept if God never answers, never gives? The lyrics pierces right through. And even though I still have no answer, it helps to know there are many who struggle the same. Do I just accept? Should I continue asking? What if some roads are just too hard? What if I fall?

Oh, the differences that often are between
Everything we want and what we really need

We think we know better. But we find it hard to grasp that God knows better. It's hard to just trust when we don't see the answer or the salvation. It's hard to just believe.

Bible says to trust and obey. That it's the only way. And history and testimony has proven that over and over again.... and what other choice do I really have?

What will you do?
