a new chapter

wpid-tree

After 6 years, I’ve finally decided to revive this blog.
It’s kind of surreal, reading the previous posts, and remembering that was the 19 year old me, leaving a bit of myself for 25 year old me to identify with.
6 years later, and it’s kind of crazy how different things are now.

It makes me remember that the life I live is short, unpredictable and precious.
I need to make the most of it, doing the things that really matter.

Just last week, Pst Lia preached about the Fig Tree in service.
It felt like something that I knew, but had somehow forgotten for a long time. Even standing at the back, serving on ministry that weekend, I felt stirred in my heart to return back to that fig tree in my walk with God, with more frequency. I needed to be there so often, that He knew me by name.
What an amazing thought… that God would know you by name!

Ecclesiastes 5 (NLT)

Approaching God with Care
5 [a]As you enter the house of God, keep your ears open and your mouth shut. It is evil to make mindless offerings to God. 2 [b]Don’t make rash promises, and don’t be hasty in bringing matters before God. After all, God is in heaven, and you are here on earth. So let your words be few.

3 Too much activity gives you restless dreams; too many words make you a fool.

4 When you make a promise to God, don’t delay in following through, for God takes no pleasure in fools. Keep all the promises you make to him. 5 It is better to say nothing than to make a promise and not keep it. 6 Don’t let your mouth make you sin. And don’t defend yourself by telling the Temple messenger that the promise you made was a mistake. That would make God angry, and he might wipe out everything you have achieved.

7 Talk is cheap, like daydreams and other useless activities. Fear God instead.

God, help me to live in Your will. Let my ears be open and my mouth shut. Let me fear You above all else.
