Live Laugh Love

Ramdom musings of a twenty something trying to find her place in this world.

Limits.

Dear you, 

I believe that I have sufficient comprehension abilities to understand a simple piece of instruction. I do not need you to repeat the same thing every single day for 3 days. I also do not need to you ask me repeatedly for an answer because I do not have an answer for you. 

Sunday morning when we are all getting ready to leave is the worst possible time to demand for an answer. 

I’ve asked about weekend plans before the weekend began, I got a oh we’ve got nothing planned. 

The next thing I know - you need to be responsible for them bugs, otherwise you pay for the pest control. Strong. 

So you push me to a corner and leave me no choice. I’m frustrated that you’re demanding/hounding and trying to extract an answer out of me, i’m annoyed that you think this whole thing is because of my room and i’m the only culprit responsible for it. 

You say you’re not demanding, but when I gave you my reasons as to why I haven’t given you an answer and why the cleaning isn’t done, you add fuel to the fire by reiterating in your best possible tone, volume and i’m sorry, you really pushed me to my limits. 

I’ve tried to reason with you for so long, i’m sorry its so hard for you to understand. 

I’m sorry I lost my temper. I’m sorry its so hard for people to get through to you, and you make the simplest things so complicated. I’m sorry you think i’m a spoilt kid, i’m sorry you even said that about your eldest. 

This really has to stop. Not just this particular incident, but many others that stem from the constant need for you to know, and the need for you to repeat yourself incessantly. I don’t doubt your intentions cos you do have good intentions, but everyone has their limits too. 

Sincerely, 

Me

Cos we’re called to love, and not judge. 
How can you think of saying, ‘Friend, let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye. -Luke 6:42 (NLT)

May God help me.

Train Rides

So the daily commute when I don’t get a ride consists of brisk walking to the interchange, then trying to navigate the extremely crowded platform, squeeze my way in, through those doors to stand in my little imaginary square for the next 50 minutes or so.

Sometimes, I get seated, other times I get seated and then see someone who needs the seat more than I do. Sometimes, I stand all that way.

During that 50 minutes, people watching, attempts to read, clock watching, or doze off.

Today, I’m reflecting on these past 5 months, and what I’m gonna do for the rest of the 7.

#momentum2014. 

Cos God instituted it, and it’s the only way to go. 
Stay grounded, stay true amidst all the madness and alternative, divergent thinking.

Giving Her Away →

littlethingsaboutgod:

One of the sweetest vow I’ve ever heard.

Tobin, I make these vows to you as a demonstration and expression not only of my love for you but also for Jesus, knowing full well that I am a sinner, I am imperfect, flawed, and I will fall short. I make these vows to you because I will strive to keep them with all my heart and strength not just because I love you, but in obedience to our perfect Savior who designed and ordained the sacred covenant of marriage.

I vow to give myself up for you daily and sacrificially as God gave his son up for us as sinners, and to put your needs before mine.

I vow to count your interests more important, and in humility to consider others better than myself.

I vow to walk in the Spirit daily and love Jesus first, to work to keep him my everything so that he may enable me to love you fully as my husband.

I vow to find my all and identity in Jesus and not to pressure you to be my meaning, significance, and satisfaction in life.

I vow to serve you intentionally and sacrificially with joy in my heart as Jesus served us all the way to the cross.

I vow not to expect you to read my mind but humbly and eagerly come before you expressing my desires and needs.

I vow not to manipulate and control, and I vow not to be a slave to my emotions, because this is sin and displeases the Lord.

I vow to give you grace and mercy freely, openly, and often, as the Lord so generously gives us.

I vow to affirm you and encourage you. I vow to build you up and cheer you on when you feel no one else will.

I vow to be your best friend, to listen to you, to talk to you, to cry with you, to laugh with you, and to love on you.

I vow to do more side-by-side things with you, and to take on your passions, interests, and hobbies as my own.

I vow to love you on your worst day at the lowest of lows, and on your best day.

I need you, more than just to get through the day, but so that it overflows. 

Nothing in this world can satisfy, Jesus you’re the cup that won’t run dry. 

Your presence is heaven to me.

10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord) →

I’m loving this rendition of 10,000 Reasons.

Forgiveness.

It’s the hardest thing to give away
And the last thing on your mind today
It always goes to those that don’t deserve

It’s the opposite of how you feel
When the pain they caused is just too real
It takes everything you have just to say the word…

Forgiveness
Forgiveness

It flies in the face of all your pride
It moves away the mad inside
It’s always anger’s own worst enemy
Even when the jury and the judge 
Say you gotta right to hold a grudge
It’s the whisper in your ear saying ‘Set It Free’


It’ll clear the bitterness away
It can even set a prisoner free
There is no end to what it’s power can do
So, let it go and be amazed
By what you see through eyes of grace
The prisoner that it really frees is you

I want to finally set it free
So show me how to see what Your mercy sees
Help me now to give what You gave to me
Forgiveness, Forgiveness

Forgiveness

While it is awesome to be able to have an answer to things, It is also important to just let it be, You don’t always have to have an answer to things. you don’t need to have an answer. 

But embracing that is really another story altogether.
