A believing life (30): 慧或不慧

“But the plans of the Lord stand forever, the purposes of His heart through all generations.” – Psalm 33:11 (NIV) “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” – Hebrews 6:19 (NIV) “And surely I

Coming and Going

“I’ve never stood at a bus stop for so many hours before.” “Me neither.” “It’s like, why the bus never come?”… * We were along Commonwealth Avenue West yesterday, from 9.30 in the morning. There wasn’t anyone at the bus

Travelling Well

When my time comes, who would weep as if they’d lost their own family? Who would be grateful for my life – whether they agreed with my choices or not? Would they look at how I’ve loved, and see that

Chief Gardener

Today I was reminded how well God knows my heart, and how tenderly He holds it. I vacillated for most of the early morning between going all out to pay my respects at Parliament House, and ‘settling’ at another tribute

A believing life (28): Words

It has been a surreal week. Preparing for KK’s upcoming move to Melbourne. Making a favourite dessert. Having unusual weekday family meals out. Waiting in a project-less period marked by pencil bookings in the weeks to come. Meeting up with

A believing life (25): Content & Confident

Sunday’s lectionary was Exodus 1:8 – 2:10. Was struck by how much women featured in this short reading. Different ages, status, vocations. Yet each of them carried something of God’s light in and presence with them (yes, even Pharaoh’s daughter!).

A believing life (24): Yours Truly

“I know you. Because I made you.” He is my Maker. The Maker knows His own. There is no need to hide. I can hide from myself. (Thankfully, I do that a lot less now.) Sometimes, I hide from others

It was good.

Today was another Day -1. That usually means a full day of perspiration, sitting on the floor, stretching over paper 4ft wide and several metres long. And praying for inspiration (or at least, supernatural ability to copy some Googled drawing,

A believing life (20): In the gaps

So much of me misses and wishes to go back to late April. Live Selah again. But it’s unrealistic… right? * Since that blessed pause, things have been rolling. “That’s good news, isn’t it?”, some people say. Yes. Of course.

A believing life (15): See in the dark

We were at DID this morning. Very glad D asked me along. It would otherwise have been another exteriorly rushy-yet-rootless, interiorly noisy-yet-barren morning and probably restless & fightful night later. I wasn’t afraid to step into pitch black; it felt like

Birdsong

This new chapter of TBOT on Joy has inspired me to slow down and listen a little longer – to birdsong. Although many of the birds mentioned in the chapter are not native to Singapore or the region, thankfully there’s

Moonlit day

I love my bedroom window. I see amazing things there. Every day the masterpiece it frames changes. Looked up a bit in my darkened room tonight and gazed at the moon. Reminded of how little I know. And thankful for

A bit crazy. The last 4 days. Running from one place to another. Meeting very different people. Rapid mode switch. Learnt to brief myself very quickly anytime, anywhere as I moved from one thing to the next: on the train,

Love Always Prevails (VIII)
