I remember the day I decided to start this blog like it was yesterday. 😊
Before that, I'd been running another blog with two of my friends for a while. However, after some time we realized that we were each interested in a different field of writing, and decided to go our separate ways - so to speak - and each focus on our individual fields.
It took a while after that for the "Debz Meets World" concept to form in my head and become what it is today; in fact, it was only about a month before I launched my website that I decided on a name for it...
One of the classes I'm taking this semester is "Thinking Through Religions", a class where we learn about each of the main religions of the world in detail. We had already learnt about Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism - all very interesting lessons that taught me so much about these religions that I didn't know before. But what I was really looking forward to was the lesson in which we'd learn about Christianity. 😊
I've only been in Thailand for a few weeks now, but it's safe to say that I love it here! 😃
The weather is warm and so are the people; the food is delicious as well as affordable, and the country itself is all sorts of lovely. I have always loved learning - and it's no different here.
I completely dropped the ball the other day when I tried to minister to a friend.
We were discussing a certain topic; and almost immediately, I realized that we had different opinions on the matter, and decided to try to convince her that she was wrong and I was right. But she wouldn't back down! I decided to tell her a scary story that I was hoping would open her eyes to the truth, but even that didn't work. Lol. It was her response to the story that stopped me in my tracks...
To put it simply, she basically said that everyone is different, and life happens differently to different people.
And that was it.
Just like that, the conversation was over!
I was so amused by the whole situation, not only because of how it had played out, but also because I'd been reminded of how closed-minded I can sometimes be when I'm ministering to people.
*I wrote this post for another blog, but in light of Valentine's Day ♥ this weekend, I felt that I should post it here,too. Hope it blesses you.😊
It surprised me when I finally realised that the world was looking for something that I’ve already found and have actually always had access to – true love.
And what is true love? You might ask.
Like me, you have probably heard so many definitions of true love that it feels like your head can no longer contain them all! You have tried to make sense of them, only for them to leave you even more confused than you were before. But the truth of the matter is that we have been looking for the truth in all the wrong places. The world doesn’t know what true love is; how can it know something that it has never experienced?
I find it easier and more effective to write down how I feel rather than to say it.
