Words of encouragement

Do you feel so overwhelmed by your limitations? by what other people can do? by others “upper hand” compared to yours?
You may feel you don’t have the connections you really need, or the money, friends, family, anything you can named of.

But hey, don’t just look at your problems, they may be great, they may seem so huge and never ending, but switch your focus on your blessings. I’m not trying to be cliche, but wait a minute. let’s think about these things with me

Do you still have complete set of eyes? If Yes, then give thanks and use those pair of eyes to pay attention to what will benefit your life the most
Instead of sulking of not having the latest trend of make up palettes, or the newest iphone 6, or any other things that held most prominent places in your life, why not be grateful for those pair of eyes? if they aren’t there, you won’t be able to enjoy your phone, your hobby, your makeup, etc etc right?
Do you still be able to enjoy meals 3 times a day? (unless you are on a diet!) then give thanks! and try to find something you can do to share your blessing with the one who is terribly hungry right now? why not buying some snacks or a set of Mc donalds and give to someone who has to trimmed down his meal as his wages used for buying milk for his baby or for paying his child’s school fee?

Remember it’s happier to give than to receive, and you’ll be happier as you give and bless people who need your help, in comparison as having all the stuffs that you want, coz no matter how many stuffs we own, they don’t even seem to be enough. there will always be new trends, new “needs” that is not really a need actually, and our wish list will be never ending.

Matthew 25:40 New International Version (NIV)

40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Luke 6:38 New Living Translation (NLT)

38 Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.[a]”

so what kind of blessing are you going to be today?

Have a blessed day everyone

Small potatoes vs lavish celebration

Hi guys, its been a while since i ve been updating my blog, coz there are so many things to do. but somehow today I reaaally feel the urge of sharing these encouragement God has been speaking to me through these days.

it comes from 2 Cor 4: 16-18, the Message states that:

16 So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace. 17 These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us. 18 There’s far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can’t see now will last forever.
