We have victory!

I know I’ve talked about this song on the blog before but it just seems right for the season! Enjoy and pay attention to the lyrics.

Food for thought:

“He paid it all”. There’s profundity in that statement.

Life nugget:

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The fear of examinations

(Photo credit- pancomido.wordpress.com)

There’s something about sitting for examinations that make most people (I would have said everyone, but I don’t have the facts) scared and a bit jittery. Is it the fear of the unknown?

Then there are levels of fear in exams: there’s less fear when the exam is objective-based. The fear is heightened when it is theory (I haven’t assessed the fear of practical exams; perhaps, it’s the worst?). We like to know we have options, hence we feel more comfortable with objective-based exams. I wrote both theory and objective exams today. Continue reading

Jesus my Hero

I recently read in a devotional about the “Holy Presence of God”. Let me give you a brief breakdown: In the time of Moses when the Temple was built, there were two major parts (that concerns this post)- the Holy place and the Holy of Holies.

The Holy of Holies was were the Presence of God dwelt, where the High Priest went in ONCE every year to offer sacrifices. Now the place was so Holy that before the High Priest goes in, there’s a rope tied to his leg and bells on his garment. Why was this done? So that in case he was unholy and died suddenly, his body could be pulled out with the rope.

Such was the awe of that place. But what happened when Jesus came? Heb 10:19 (NIV)

“Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus,”

Wow! Think about it for a moment and let the realisation sink in.

That is what Jesus did for you and me, that Jesus, our Hero. We celebrate that sacrifice He made today (Good Friday) and the victory He won on Sunday (Easter Sunday). He is risen! Hallelujah!

Food for thought:

The book of Hebrews tells us in detail about Jesus our High Priest. You can study it for more details. You can also use different versions.

Life nugget:

It is by grace that we are saved. No boasting necessary. I may have been one of those shouting “Crucify Him” on that day.

What then is ‘Spring’?

This post will be more about asking questions and letting my mind wander. It is definitely going under ‘Philosophy’. The main question is this:

Is Spring a time period (range of months) or is it an occurrence?

You’d get where I’m coming from in a bit. Spring, as in the season, is so called because it is a time when things “spring forth”. So the trees start growing leaves again after shedding them in autumn/winter. Based on this definition, we can say Spring is an occurrence.

But there’s a problem: Continue reading

Google Hangout

Ah, I see you accepted my hangout request. Welcome. I’m going to talk about a really cool collaboration platform that I recently came across. I’d try to keep this as short as possible and probably write a more lengthy techy post somewhere else.

What can make a person like me spend 8 hours straight on the computer?  Continue reading

And you shall know the truth

I use a lot of train examples because I have to catch the train every morning to get to work. As you are probably familiar with, trains come at fixed times; in my case 8:20, 8:24, 8:30, 8:37, 8:45 and so on.

This particular morning, I was walking to the station, Continue reading

Just Enough Information

(Photo credit: vecto.rs)

Recently, I’ve been practicing “Just enough information”, learning to answer just enough to any question. There are two things that are relevant to note for this post:

  1. Not everybody needs to know
  2. Not everybody wants to know

Not everybody needs to know the in-depth details of your life, not necessarily because of who they are but because of the sensitivity of the info.

Secondly, not everybody wants to know. It’s not everyone who asks how you are doing that really wants to know- it could just be courtesy.

Let’s take a story: Continue reading
