Bait

Posted on

Oh, we are like fishes in the pond
Swimming with enjoyment
Until
A hook with worm
Suddenly rolls down
Tempting fishes to
Take the bait
Bait to be devoured
Bait to death and destruction

Hooks of the devil
Snares of the devil
Traps of the devil
Wiles of the devil

Temptations from the devil
Deserve our attentions to beware
Deserve our attentions to guard ourselves
Deserve our attentions to seek God’s intervention

To stand strong in our faith
To stand with Jesus’ strength
To please our Lord
As the ambassadors of gospel
To be the vessel of Light

Do we ignore God’s Words and choose to fall into temptations?
Or
Temptations are overpowered with our choices to stand in His Words?

We find strength in our faith
We depend on God’s wisdom
When we find our purpose and meaning
In our Lord Jesus Christ.

An Over-Exert Lady

Posted on
Though a slow learner girl, hardworking is one of her traits. A motto, “I can’t do it, but I must overcome it and able to do it!” starts when she was drowned into a swimming pool at the age of three.
During her schooldays, mathematics is one of her favourite subjects with Chemistry comes second. She dislikes subjects that need to be memorised. Geography and history are the hardest subjects for her due to the need to remember the map and year.
As years passed by, it was the time for her to study diploma in Computing. Programming module is the hardest module to understand because she couldn’t grasp the logic behind it. But upon her cousin’s patient guidance, she came to love it because she could comprehend the logic. In order to avoid the selective memorisation modules during her bachelor’s studies, she chose the programming selective modules.
Undaunted by her drowned experience, she persistently learn how to swim from her father in a warm water swimming pool with her siblings. Believing herself to be able to master the swimming frog strokes, by faith she jumped twice into the adult section of the swimming pool. Though drowned, but she managed to keep herself afloat. Thank God for His mercy for always sending someone to save her. Ten years later, she is able to swim well until today. With that, she is very delighted and satisfied. Then she is still learning other types of swimming strokes.
Finally, during her marriage life she implements her motto upon buying a $24 Antonius four drawer container for household, she bought it at Ikea around Tampines since she was nearby attending a toy workshop. Without knowing how it looks like, she immediately bought it only to find out that the delivery charge is $50 after make the payment. She tied and carried it all the way to Expo without informing her husband for assistance. Upon reaching there, he was shocked to see the drawers. In the end, they couldn’t buy a lot of baby food. Moreover, she lost her puppet’s eye and an arm. Only after shower, her shoulders, back, and ankles were aching. These lasted for a few days. This is the most painful experience, but also a lesson for her not to over-exert herself.
So the moral of the story is
Though forcing oneself is strength, but it is also a weakness.
Your own strength can become your own weakness, but your weakness will also turn out to be strength.
This story is based on a true story.
