“Sustaining love isnt easy, but it sure isn’t supposed to be that hard either. So when it really really just hurts, then stop hurting yourself. Know when you should stop giving, and stop fighting.”
Paper at 5pm but I needed to do some thanksgiving before going for my paper hahaha.
Big thank you to my LG members for helping me to find an English-Chinese dictionary! Thank you so much guys, for the trouble and all. Big props to Sherms who really went around asking her friends :’) GDLL.
Thank You Daddy for blessing me with an imba dictionary that I purchased from Yunnan bookstore. It was all wrapped up so I couldn’t check the contents but thank You for Your providence it’s a really good dictionary just what I need!
Received a small thanksgiving note from Pooiyee as well, although I really did nothing except offer a small space in my room which is no trouble at all. And for helping me to buy lunch too yayz!
And the shepherd for koping wangwang for me HAHAHA.
Meeting my dear brothers Vincent and Weiyeat for supper tonight after my paper wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee holidays are looking great you gaiz ^^
me: “Do you believe in irreconcilable differences?”
Dee: “Point is, it’s not what i believe in that matters. It’s what you both believe in and choose to fight for. It’s not what you want to hear right now but Jesus never advocated that. But the fight, the fight to make things right – that’s a hard fight.”
”The problem is that tolerant has changed its meaning. It used to mean ‘I may disagree with you completely, but I will treat you with respect. Today, tolerant means – ‘you must approve of everything I do.’ There’s a difference between tolerance and approval. Jesus accepted everyone no matter who they were. He doesn’t approve of everything I do, or you do, or anybody else does either. You can be accepting without being approving.”
– Rick Warren
Reblogged from here:
“That you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.” (Deuteronomy 30:20 NIV)
Today we’ve bought into this myth that love is uncontrollable, that it’s something that just happens to us; it’s not something we control. In fact, even the language we use implies the uncontrollability of love. We say, “I fell in love,” as if love is some kind of a ditch. It’s like I’m walking along one day and — bam! — I fell in love. I couldn’t help myself.
But I have to tell you the truth: That’s not love. Love doesn’t just happen to you. Love is a choice, and it represents a commitment.
There’s no doubt about it: Attraction is uncontrollable, and arousal is uncontrollable. But attraction and arousal are not love. They can lead to love, but they are not love. Love is a choice.
You must choose to love God; he won’t force you to love him (Deuteronomy 30:20). You can thumb your nose at God and go a totally different way. You can destroy your life if you choose to do that. God still won’t force you to love him, because he knows love can’t be forced.
This same principle is true about your relationships: You can choose to love others, but God won’t force you to love anyone.
“But God said that love is patient and kind. It is not evil and it always protects. Always. So if this love cannot protect me and is not kind to me in any way at all, it is not the love that is best for me. It is not the love that I deserve.”
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)
