Day 14: Fathers and Brides

“The king proclaims the LORD’s decree: “The LORD said to me, ‘You are my son. Today I have become your Father.” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭2:7‬ ‭NLT‬ I love watching wedding videos. I always imagine myself as the beautiful bride walking down the aisle ushered by her parents as her handsome groom cheerfully awaits at the altar for…

Day 13: God’s Love Letter To His Daughter

My dearest Daughter, You are precious to me. You are my little princess. Before I formed you in your mother’s womb I knew you. You are the apple of my eye. I delight in you. I am pleased with you. I will give men for you and people in exchange for your life. Whoever touches…

Day 12: Struggling to Trust

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 2:5-6 (NIV) Trust. It is easier said than done and I don’t know how other people manage their lives to simply just trust, then close their…

Day 11: Breaking Free

Over the course of time, I realised how much I held on to the kind of life I lived in the past. Even after my dad had passed away, I was still chasing him to love me and see me. I was still trying to seek his approval; trying to make him feel proud of…

Day 10: Write about Writing 

I wasn’t able to write for the past two days. I know I was supposed to write everyday. The whole purpose of this exercise is to discipline myself to get into the habit of well, writing of course! Unfortunately, just like going to the gym where you kinda start off feeling giddy and excited about…

Day 8: Today, I have become your Father

“The king proclaims the LORD’s decree: “The LORD said to me, ‘You are my son. Today I have become your Father. Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, the whole earth as your possession.” ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭2:7-8‬ ‭NLT‬‬ (http://bible.com/116/psa.2.7-8.nlt)  Dear God, Thank you for this word today. I have had so…

Day 7: The Pursuit to be Pursued

Every woman longs to be pursued by her man – not that she enjoys being chased. But I believe it is because there’s just a part in her somewhere deep down her innermost soul wanting to know that her heart is precious and above all else valued. A woman desires to know that it is…

Day 6: A Letter to My Future Children

My Dearest Children, I want you to know how much I love you already! When did I start loving you? Do I begin in my early childhood when in spite of my stubbornness I have to obey my parents when they tell me to wash the dishes, clean the house and finish my homework and avoid…

Day 5: What do you want to be when you grow up?

“I would like to be a teacher!” The seven-year old me tells the 30+ odd-year old me. It fascinates me how I remember so clearly whenever some grown-ups back in the days would ask me this. I remember how I would always play the ‘teacher-student’ drama in one of our rooms-turned-makeshift-classroom in our old family…

Day 4: Abandoned and Found by Grace

A friend of mine shared to me her story of how her husband, after being married for four years, abandoned her like an unwanted kitten left alone in the middle of nowhere. It was a one fine day, who would have thought, she bid goodbye to her husband at the airport as he was off…

Day 3: The Quiet Crucible of our Personal Private Sufferings

 “It is in the quiet crucible of your personal private sufferings that your noblest dreams are born and God’s greatest gifts are given in compensation for what you’ve been through.”~Wintley Phipps   I saw this quote again today when it appeared in my facebook memory. It is actually so timely because I have to admit…

Day 2: Wandering in the Wilderness of a Broken Heart

I never thought I’d ever come to this place again A familiar place I dare not tread upon A place of heartache, brokenness and pain. Suddenly, the memories I’ve buried in the past, Came open a wound so deep. It was as if a dark hole wallowed me in That all I could hear were…
