5th March 2006. The day I officially started doing my quiet time.

I did it before, but that was like 3 or 4 years back. Then I lost my fire for God. Came 5th March when I decided to make an effort to study His Word, I have never looked back ever since.

There's some much to learn, there's so much to apply. As a Christian, I should NOT only attend church and cell and keep receiving knowledge and blessings from Him. Not saying that that's bad, but I should take a step further to give what I have received from Him to benefit others as well.

He does not bless me to make me feel good. He blesses me to make me and blessing, bless those around me and make Him feel good.

Every blessing You pour out I'll turn back to praise

It's sad that some of us keep demanding more from Him when He has already given us so much. Count our blessings, please. And use them for His glory.

The quiet moments I spent studying His word were really fruitful. He speaks to my heart in ways which I never experienced before. Now I know, He has His answers in the Word and He's just waiting to point me to the relevant ones (for the moment). That's how He speaks to me. And almost all cases what I studied applies to what I'm going through.

Better is one day in Your courts
Than thousands elsewhere

I must say that these couple of days spent in intimacy with Him cannot be compared to the rest of my days playing around with my spiritual life. I didn't take Him seriously last time, that's why I wasn't as close to Him as compared to now.

I long to be with Him only. But somehow, the world will try all means to pull me away...

Thanks. And regarding the privacy of blogs, I believe that bloggers have the responsibility of watching what they write.
