Never Be Discouraged..

Much has happened since early January... no doubt every day is just another day but to some, it can be happiness, joy but to some others, each day brings sorrow and pain.

Happenings in my family for this January month...the sudden demise of my FIL, my mum feeling unwell for over a week now, spending a big portion doing some repairs in the house, my poor sister's car stolen right in front of her house last night and.... the list might go on and on...

All these incidents are discouraging...

But whatever it takes, I know God is in control of it all... I don't wanna cry defeat... cos He says, "I will never forsake nor leave you"... and isn't it written, "When God is for us, who can be against us?"

For those who are heavily laden, just cast your cares and worries upon His feet...
Yes, mine is heavy now... and I shall do just that....


  1. Ya mum, things might be tough, situation might seem unpleasant but know that God is alway here with us..Never give up, always rejoice in the Lord..He is in control

  2. Yes, He is.. good or bad.. He will make the best out of each situation..

  3. Thanks Claire for dropping by and for leaving your comment. nice and simple blog you have here. Keep up the good work and Keep in touch :)

  4. Sometimes...I thing...God is just too busy to take care all of us. So we have to look out for ourselves. :D

  5. aswani: thanks for dropping by...

    merryn: *hugs* u too..

    Tekkaus: Never too busy with His kids, i bet! :)

  6. I used to think that God puts my house on fire to punish me for my sins, but now, I know that He's just lighting the way for me so that i could see who is good and who is insincere to me.

    He is showing you something Claire. Maybe one day you'll know what it is. God works in mysterious way. All we need to do is just have faith in Him. He'll take care of you.

  7. mery: let the weak say I am strong.. yes, i will...

    cleffairy: gosh, now i need u to comfort me back.. thanks girl.. i need that.. life is such.. we experience times like these to make us wiser, stronger, and more sensitive towards others' needs too...

  8. Life is an endless cycle of ups and downs.
    Things just happened, all at once, can be overwhelming.
    Your sister's car was stolen? Oh dear.
    Just take everything in your strides, dear.

  9. as the saying goes, when the going gets tough, the tough gets going.

    There is surely a silver lining under all these happenings

  10. I agree with Cleffairy's post! I can certainly understand how you must be feeling, having had those kind of "days" but good always comes from bad. Take good care of yourself and sending you a big hug!

  11. yes, Cheryl, I do believe that life is such, it has its ups and downs and the downs make us wiser and stronger... thanks for the big hug!!

  12. God allows all these challengers in our life so that we can be more closer to Him thus make our faith stronger.

    Remember sister, God is always in control in every situation and He will never leave nor forsake you.

    Let the weak say "I am strong!"

  13. reanaclaire,...have you ever,i repeat have you ever ever in your quite moments ponders,with all the things around us which we thought were done by God,were actually not done by him - not all i think .many times i think we all are actually - Gods.we can make things happened too and we can love, kill,destroys and many more.i hope what i just said may not be that offending to times im just as doubtful as i am writing this.

  14. Claire, the new year is approaching soon, gone with the old and bad and welcome spring with a cheery heart, ok ?


Thank you, readers!
