2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 16,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Sun’s Teaching 15, December, 2013

During the event of Magical Connexion some time back, Sun came and taught us some biblical principles about singleness and relationship.
After the teaching, she answered some questions from the audience.
I did not manage to note down the Q&A session.
Nevertheless, here is the note on her teaching.

Singleness isn’t a problem. Apostle Paul and Lord Jesus were single.
A myth: if only I’m married, I’ll be happy.
If you aren’t happy and whole as a single, you won’t be happy and whole when you are married.
Marriage is only as good as singleness. Nothing magical happens at the wedding altar.
If the person is insecure before the wedding vow, the person is insecure after the vow.
God first created Adam to be single first. He gave him a task to do.
Heb 11.
God used individuals even when they were couples.
One of the advantages of being single is freedom from cares of the world.

3 things single should cultivate.

1.) cultivate yourself.
– Physical attractiveness. Confidence. Eating healthy.
– Maintaining healthy size. Well groomed. Healthy skin. Choice of clothe and make up.
– Communication skill. We communicate via word, gesture and spirit. It is a two ways communication.
Learn to hold a meaningful communication. Smile is able to open somebody’s heart.
If you are mean-spirited, others will pick up the spirit. It will be a turn off
– Cultivate spirituality.
We should delight ourselves in the Lord: pray, grow in the word. A spiritual person has Lord Jesus at the center in his\her life.

2.) Cultivate relationship
Gen 2:18
The only defect was the aloneness. It is ok to be single. It is not ok to be alone.
The kingdom of God is the kingdom of relationship.
The better we relate to others, the better skill we have in marriage.

3.) Cultivate ministry for Jesus
Singleness gives us more free time to serve God.
