Core Purpose
To know God, enjoy God, reflect his glory back to him in the pursuit of justice and mercy in all things, and do this in community with others through Jesus Christ.

Core Principles

  • To love others as myself, and love other Christians as Christ has loved me

  • To be proactive in doing good for others, and seek their spiritual, emotional, mental and physical welfare in everything I do, in any and every realm of life

  • To be well organised, not simply for its own sake and because I like it but to make the doing of good easier and more likely and friction free

  • To enjoy and give thanks to God for everything in this life, whether good or bad

  • To live each day with all my might, vigour, enthusiasm and gratitude

  • To study the Bible steadily, constantly and frequently, and plainly perceive myself to grow in the knowledge of the same

  • To pray for both Christians and non-Christians frequently and diligently

  • To never speak evil of anyone

  • To exhibit an air of love, cheerfulness and benignity

  • Reflect on my Mission Statement weekly

Core Beliefs
I am a child of God who has been forgiven and redeemed by Christ alone, through faith alone, to the glory of God alone. I am saved into spending eternity with Christ as part of the church.

Life Goal
Excelling in studies and growing people in spiritual maturity.

So many expectations on myself
I feel tired
I am super cranky when I do them because no one thinks to help
When someone helps I get super annoyed they don't do it my way ie the most efficient way

So much arrogance
But also tiredness and cbbs telling other people my expectations

On another note I'm frustrated by not knowing what I should be doing with myself sometimes ie career prospects but does that really matter in the end

Should I be dwelling on my own thoughts or seeking to love others by hearing them out

Much sigh

the slight delight when I bump into Linly at a food court and have lunch with her while discussing our work

the slight hurt when Mike says a phrase I used was pejorative

the slight satisfaction in binging on chocolate and icecream

the slight regret that follows after

the slight (actually more than that) excitement for the fun-packed day tomorrow

Heavenly Father,

I thank you for your word - your powerful word which transcends all time to speak to us even today. I thank you that you reveal yourself and our sinful hearts through it, especially through 1 Sam and James this year for me.

I thank you that when I feel self-righteous, you humble me by showing me my state of depravity. Yet when I wallow in the depths of my sin and guilt, you exalt me be reassuring me of the magnitude of your love, which has conquered sin. I thank you that in all times, you graciously transform my imperfection so I slowly become perfect like Jesus.

  • can't wait for holidays - except not really hols because working etc

  • slightly excited for exams

  • but also overwhelmed by the amount of stuff I need to know

  • I feel like I've gotten so much stuff into my brain

  • but I also feel like I wouldn't be able to cover all my grounds tmrw in the exam

  • or the exam the day after

  • trusting in God

  • knowing academic failure doesn't define me

  • trying to stay motivated too

  • i'm a contradiction

It's been a massive few weeks. Hangouts, pastoral care issues, ministry issues to work out...

You're scared you wrong him but you know your demands are justified. When you love him so much but you're scared you'll lose him. I guess that's what dating is all about - knowing and feeling the uncertainty but still clinging on to the hope for a future together.

Praise Jesus for full assurance in him.

Really should memorise Romans 8
