=253= Comfort Songs: Till I See You

Till I See You by Hillsong
The greatest love that anyone could ever know
That overcame the cross and grave to find my soul
And ’til I see You face to face
And grace amazing takes me home, I’ll trust in You

With all I am I live to see Your kingdom come
And in my heart I pray you’d let Your will be done
And ’til I see You face to face
And grace amazing takes me home, I’ll trust in You

I will live to love You
I will live to bring You praise
I will live a child in awe of You

You are the voice that called the universe to be
You are the whisper in my heart that speaks to me
And ’til I see You face to face
And grace amazing takes me home, I’ll trust in You

You alone are God of all
You alone are worthy, Lord
And with all I am my soul will bless Your name

Today had been a horrible day. Honestly affected by responses. Got my mood extremely sapped because of what one person did. Got me super annoyed and irritated. I didn’t do anything wrong, but you had to phrase it in such a way that made me the bad guy. This is not the way to stand up for your beliefs. No, not at all. I remembered back in secondary 2, when i stopped swearing and cursing, I wanted my friends to stop as well. Hence, I hit, yes, physically hit, my friends whenever they curse. Saying, “don’t say bad words in front of me”. Do you think it work? Of course not. My friends continued to swear and our relationship soured. Violence solves nothing, even a physical reminder does nothing. Stop. Just stop. There is no need to stoop down so low as to do a something wrong just ¬†because someone did. The way the blacks in America got their freedom was through non-violence, an amazing power that broke through for them. They did not retaliate to ¬†unfairness. They did not start fights. They showed the shame of the other party’s actions and won the battle for civil rights.

Then, today, i failed once again. -sigh- My flesh, when will you listen to me? Stop succumbing to the devil’s temptations. RUN AWAY. Get the hell away from it and speak in tongues. Run away and listen to Christian Music. Run away and play drums. Distract yourself. Please stop harming yourself.

This song has brought much comfort to this horrible horrible day. Thank you Lord! “You alone are God of all, You alone are worthy, Lord and with all i am, my soul will bless your name.”

Father, please help me.

=252= Words of Melancholy: Justify

It is a very bad human habit for people to justify themselves when they are corrected, it is understandable though, I mean everyone feels that they are right. However before trying to justify one’s actions, one should take a step back, listen and think. Think for yourself if what you did was right or wrong. If it was not wrong, justify yourself is alright, just be more aware of yourself. If it was wrong, be humble, don’t justify yourself. Admit that you are wrong. Don’t be proud. Put your pride down for a second and actually thank the person correcting you or at least say sorry.

Next though, is just wrong. When being corrected, you try to push the blame to another party. For example, when one is corrected, one would often say, “Then he/she shouldn’t have does this!” I am honestly sick of this reason. To commit a wrong because someone else did something against you is wrong. Your wrong actions aren’t justified. You are not right. If you are, terrorist are all right for bombing places. Doing a wrong when someone did something against you is not right. To bomb a place because people of the nation hurt you is not right. To do wrong when you are angry is not right. To do wrong when you are tired and irritated is not right. Suck it up, don’t push your wrong to someone else or change the focus. The focus is that you did wrong and that is something you should not have done. If swearing is wrong. Only swearing when you are angry is wrong. Law needs to be fixed and solid, if not it will not work.

In this world, you will bound to offend someone and people are bound to offend you. Them offending you is an issue and it can be solved slowly by correcting. However, the bigger issue is your response to the offense or correction. First, is the person more important or your pride more important? Second, if you know the person’s character, you will know if he is genuine or not, you take in correction if it is right! Your response would determine your tone. Always humble. Don’t get angry over the littlest of things. A person would more likely accept someone’s message if it was given in a good tone.
