Yesterday I had such a fantastic time with my ex-st margs' classmates - Meiting, Huiling, Amelia Cheah, Rachel Koh and Liwen.
And I remember back in secondary, it was not like I was part of their clique, I usually hung out with other girls; but I could always talk to them pretty easily about random, casual topics.
And when we met up yesterday, talking definitely was not a problem; we talked a lot. About random things from God, to school, to bad teenage habits, birthday pranks etc.
And really God showed me how sometimes it just takes that bit of initiative. Like slowly bit by bit He's showing me the people in Singapore who can and will help me keep my Spirit on track, especially when I'm away from my usual environment in Melbourne.
Though the time of personal sharing wasn't much, we got to discuss God. Wow. Honestly, I'd never expect that to happen; I was actually praying to God for an opportunity to share. And I did get the chance to share, and hear from the others too. Amazing isn't it? =)
I guess it comes with growth and maturity, you gain understanding and the inclination to share and listen for the work of God in the lives of others.
Although this morning I woke up dead tired. I think a combination of dance class and choreographing and teaching has taken a toll on me; I could barely walk down the stairs this morning. Ouchh.
Emotionally I was pretty drained too; like when I talked to my mummy, I sounded super stoned, though it wasn't intended. I was in a pretty bad mood, like I was pms-ing or something (which come to think of it, maybe I am 0.0). Lol.
I was hoping to do my hair this morning before meeting Pammie, but unfortunately timing became tight so I couldn't. I guess the bad mood kinda made the feeling worse.
Then of course, Vannie and Maria were going cycling so that left me to wrangle our little puppy Coco to the back. The moment I picked up the leash, however, Angel thought I was taking her for a walk. So she jumped at me. It would've been good fun if her nails were not sharp. And because I happened to be wearing shorts, I've now have some awesome red scratch marks on my leg. Ouchh.
I don't know why, but I started to feel a bit like... tightened up inside; like the feeling of being attacked. And I began to tear a bit. And hey, those who know me well know I don't cry easily at all.
So I sat down and immediately turned on the worship music; apart from the air-con maintaneance guy who interrupted me and nearly annoyed me again, I started to feel better.
Right now, I'm still a bit cranky. No less tired than I was before. But today's daily bread says that despite sorrow, to keep praising the Father; that is the way to overcome and triumph over sadness.
So I'll keep praising Him. =) Let the Earth sing All creation praise Him You alone are great And You're greatly to be praised...
Zomg God has interesting ways of telling one things.
So I decided not to go out today, to just stay home and let my body recover. Since I had nothing left to do on the computer, I chose to continue reading 'Drawing Near' by John Bevere. I had already read the first bit of it long time ago, but I decided to read the book from the start again to refresh my memory... maybe get some new revealation from it.
The section I read today was titled, "An Unhealthy Extreme". God had told the author how when we try to do too many things, that is what actually blocks us from hearing God. Sometimes, God just wants us to rest with Him.
"Of making many books there is no end and much study is wearisome to the flesh" -Eccl 12:12
"Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while" -Mark 6:31
So today is my rest day. For me to connect with God. How awesome is God? Even through books He speaks =)
