I'm drained...

Too much thinking in the past few days have rendered my mind into utter shut down.

But it's a miracle what a few friends and a gathering can do...

People need to be encouraged. People need to see positive things. People need to get away from the negativity of this world.

That's why meeting together for the purpose of encouraging one another is important. People who practise religion as an individual will not get encouragement, they get scared. Neighbours will tell you about some bad news, and therefore, as a result of such bad news, you go 'sembahyang' (pray to deities) in hope that some 'god' somewhere out there will protect you. You live in more fear, more insecurity and more negativity.

But if you constantly meet with a group of people who are there to encourage you, give you psychological support, and bring you closer to God, then you live in positivity. It helps to know that there are people out there who share the same struggles you're facing, it's good to know how some people have overcome such struggles, and it's even better to know that these people care for you genuinely, and they understand your situation.

Such things can only be good. Heck, even the direct (not forgetting illegal) selling systems have weekly meetings to 'encourage' one another. When such a group of people meet together, they fill themselves with more encouragement, more greed. These meetings are filled with 'testimonies' of how a person achieved how much material success in a short amount of time. It'll work for you if your purpose is nothing but greed.

But for me, I choose to walk in the ways of God all the days of my life.

I believe that it is not about how much a person has. It is about how he lives his life with what God has given him. Riches doesn't necessarily mean blessings.

hhhmmm....

I got deep again...

oh, well...

when ure drained from all positivity, and prayers are unanswered...miracles do happen..but that's because you pull urself help, you decide to get on with life or get sucked into the back hole.

no one will stop for a moment to give you a boost..."god helps those who help themselves"

so go help yourself, that's what i've learnt. it's saddening, that's the reality of life, though it seemed so bitter n depressing.

The fact is no one can help themselves. That's why we need God's help.

That's why we have friends around (not blood suckers).
