19 Pieces Of Advice You’ll Need To Make It Through...
By RYAN O’CONNELL 1. Knowing what you don’t want can often be more valuable than knowing what you do want. 2. Despite what it looks like on someone’s Facebook or Twitter, no one has it figured out. We’re all just slapping things against a wall and seeing what sticks. 3. Beating yourself up about a mistake you made is only going to make you more inclined to do it again. Just accept that it...
If the world doesn’t change you, you’ll end up changing the world.– A judge on China’s X Factor
So I went to my friend’s spoken word troupe performance, and I was so inspired. One piece inspired me the most. It was about love, and that hasn’t been a topic I’ve heard talked about at spoken word poetry or poetry slams. And sitting there, this poem just flowed. It’s raw and I am too shy to read it out, but here’s a peek at what I’ve written anyway. Flee There are those that long for love....

I heard a lot of stories from friends about financial blessings when they were studying overseas. Coming from a middle-income family, studying overseas was a stretch on the family budget and I was only given $550 a month for expenses. Rent and school fees were already paid for. It is a first world problem, I guess, not being able to go on trips or eat out often. I lived comfortably with that...

No point having two talk at the same time, you won’t be able to hear what He is saying.
I think it is pretty embarrassing that it was a One Direction song which reminded me of the one thing needed. The lines “I need that one thing, and you’ve got that one thing” reminded me of this verse. Luke 10:41-42 (NKJV) 41 And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. 42 But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen...

slebhy2772: response from survivor of the Colorado Movie Theater Shooting WOW.
I’m sure we all know this line “Be still and know He is God”, but do we know exactly where it came from? Today, I felt I should check it, just to see if in common usage, we may have misquoted it. And I was blown away to see it in context. It is a promise of wars conquered and promise overcome. I will rest and be still. Psalm 46 (NIV) 1 God is our refuge and strength, an...

I guess at the end of the day, we’ll always have the memories. The future cannot change that.
With daily KPIs that the boss sets and the insanely high KPI that I set for myself, I think I am slowly driving myself to the grave. I obsesses about doing well for work. I am slowly killing myself in my quest to prove that I am good at what I do - all for what? I’m not interested in climbing the corporate ladder. I actually just have a really low self worth that is measured on my own...
officialjamesbarnett: “In fourteen-hundred ninety-two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue…” Most of you know the start to that cute poem, but you may not know what happen for the next twenty years. It was an era marked with violence and the Pope in Spain required the following notice be read by Columbus to the Native Americans who refused to leave their land. “I certify to you that, with the help of...
We all deserve to be fought for. I do believe that, really. But I do feel that maybe it is a little erroneous, that it is just a statement of entitlement. Because really, we are all just undeserving, broken humans, there is nothing that we can truly earn on merit. I guess that is where grace comes in. Love is a form of grace - the unconditional, no-matter-what acceptance. Yet, I feel that...

OMY. How can this be a simple coincidence? Mashing my love of studying the Bible with my love of Sherlock. I am declaring this Biblelock. (Ok. You may now judge me. But read the article first.)
God didn’t promise us a storm-free life, He promised us a storm-proof...– Pastor Graham Forster
There comes a time when lives end. It is tough to switch from prayer and encouragment to condolences. It is never easy to be reminded of the fragility of life and the brokeness of our human body. We all die, bad things happen… But I guess the onus is not on us to convince the grieving that God is good, but to lend a comforting presence pointing them back to the cross. Faith-wise, it is a...
