|By C. S. Lewis|
|There is no safe investment. To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket of coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket—safe, dark, motionless, airless—it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The alternative to tragedy, or at least to the risk of tragedy, is damnation. The only place outside Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers and perturbations of love is Hell.|
From The Four Loves
Lord Jesus may Your name abide in my heart. May Your glory be my highest desire. May Your Spirit fill me to overflowing.
Abide in me.
Less of me.
More of You.
Take the throne of my heart.
I step down as king and crown You, the Rightful King.
God works in mysterious ways
Adam is amazing. Very creative guy. He managed to blame both God and Eve in one sentence.
And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you that you should not eat?” Then the man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I ate.”
Oh the silly things we do when we feel guilty.
Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint;
But happy is he who keeps the law.
If there was only one reason to teach the Word of God. This would be it. To reveal the truth. And that people see that there is a way to obtain real fulfilling joy. Without the truth, the world is stumbling into chaos.
So last night we had a yam cha / sharing / prayer session with some youth leaders in kk.
It was awesome.
There was Kenneth from LBC. He organised it. Kenny from Calvary Charismatic Church. Reuben and Ryan from Charis Youth BCCM. Ganesh from LBC as well. Eric from Eklektos. Me and Joey. And Athena from Maranatha Church.
I think the most important part of last night was hearing each others struggles and finding out we are not alone. Some of our struggles are the same. Some have already faced and overcome what some are facing now (excited to help each other!). Some are totally opposite (eg. Some have too much of a family feeling that there is no respect for leadership. While some are struggling to make everyone feel like its a family). The best thing about hearing each other out is realising we are not alone. And we understand each other.
I’m excited to meet up again. And I hope more leaders in KK find the time and passion to join us.
The whole night yesterday I just keep having the feeling that God’s hand was in our meeting, bringing us together, giving us the same passion for each other.
Thank You God.
Miss them so much
