"But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander." ~ 1 Peter 3:15-16
Went down to my former secondary school to meet up with one of the BB boys for matters regarding the Bible Quiz. As it was a normal school day, I manage to see a whole lot of students moving around. Hmm... Should I switch to teaching or not after my graduation? >_<

Waited for her for about an hour today as I went early. Was initially quite afresh but sooner or later, just feel like sleeping while waiting for her. It was a killer to sit there for about an hour just to wait for someone. Time seems harder to pass by then. However, her messages at the later part of the wait make it a more enjoyable one.

Even from this ordinary waiting experience, I realize that our lives on earth is similar, if not identical, to my wait. While we are waiting on God on this earth, we all started out all exciting, eager for the new things to come. However, as time goes by, the zeal begin to wear off and patience decay. Yet, just at the point of need, we often receive some affirmation from God such as answered prayer and/or a deeper revelation of Himself. It is such things that refresh our souls and align our focus back unto Him. Thank God for all His faithfulness, for without His support, not many can make it through this pilgrimage on earth. Thank God for His Word, which aids us and renews our strength as we taste it, for His Word is as sweet as honey. Amen.

Tonight, we prayed together and laid our covenant before God. It may seem out of the norm, but we have decided for a seven year courtship, symbolizing perfection. With the grace period of seven years, we can also adjust our lives accordingly to complement each other. Whatever it is, may we grow in the Lord in this seven good years to come. Besides, this is something to look forward and work towards to. As my fiancee put it, this is an "unofficial marriage" tonight... God alone be our Tower!
