Holler me your prayer requests
This winter break, it is on my heart to be praying for everyone around me. I’m compiling a list of prayer requests. I would love to pray through them at least every other day, and ideally daily. Reply to this post or pop it in my ask box. Let me know if you want to keep it private. xoxo, Nat
I believe that you can keep going long after you think you can’t.– Part of an email that my dad forwarded to me.
An apology of sorts
So I have a 2500 word essay due in 5 hours and I haven’t been behaving like a girl who has a God behind her. I have been ranting about the incompetency of my lecturer. I’ve been whining about how I’m sick and all my assignments and exam are on the same week. All while finding the time to Facebook and tweet. I’ve let the problem ahead become the focus of my attention. I...
In A Nutshell
So I fell sick. For a week. Every time I cough, my whole head shakes in pain. Some of my group members kinda bailed out on us hours before the assignment was due. But thank God for that one group mate you can always count on to bail you out. NB, you are much appreciated. Thanks for Bunny and Cine who help with random essay freak out moments. My brain gets blocked when I get stressed. Almost...

In Better News
(Edited from my Facebook post) Last month, I had a few 40% assignments due back to back. I also had to pull a couple of all nighters to complete them. To be honest, when I submitted them I felt really lousy because they were rushed and weren’t my best work. I was really afraid that I would fail. Today, I got back my results, and praise God, I got all distinctions. It is really by His...
Life is a fragile thing really. You learn to appreciate life, and a whole lot of other things more seriously. There is the fear that it could happen to you too. That like a joss stick that snuffs out before burning down to the bottom. You start praying for your nearest and your dearest. You get a lot more selfish. But when fear passes, and you look at it from a more rational, macro level, you...

Praying for Your Future Husband →
This is an interesting article on Boundless. I was just talking with a friend about how one of our pastors had only one prayer request for many years - to have a good wife. And now, we can say that indeed God has given him a good wife. I remember being introduced to this concept by one of the guys on Tumblr. And it is something that I have been urging my friends to do. So yeah, prayer is the...

Every Sunday after serving in kids ministry, I walk away feeling down, condemned, and horrible. I feel like a failure. It’s not an easy ministry to serve in. It is frustrating when there is a communication barrier, and when the kids don’t want to cooperate. It is worse when I do something wrong due to my inexperience. I feel like I’ve messed up several times. Part of me wants...
It was an interesting day at lifegroup. We discussed about prophesy and how everyone can have that gift. And then spent time praying for each other. Sweet time to end my day. :)

Dying to self
Every day is a new decision for me to die to self and live for Christ. I have to remember why I’m doing certain things, to remember the Gifter of giftings, and the Blesser of blessings. Because it really is not all about me, but all about Him.
