When to Quit?

Quitters never win they say. It is not something we were raised to do. This virtue of determination, of not quitting, is proper when it comes to our studies, for that high school student who refuses to give up until she solves the maths problem.  For that 3 year old who refuses to give up on that 12-piece jigsaw puzzle. As children we were ridiculed or even punished for quitting on a task, and now as adults, a lot of us suffer needlessly from unnecessary stress brought about by this inability to determine that enough is enough.

McLobsters and McPizzas


Does McDonald’s serve Lobsters or Pizzas?

I am posing these questions to people who ask about the seeming inconsistencies found in The Bible.  I placed emphasis on the word “SEEMING” to point out that there are no inconsistencies in God’s word;

On Buddhist Impermanence and Christian Counselling

I had the privilege of meeting a Buddhist practitioner who shared with me the concept of Impermanence.  Impermanence is one of the core concepts of Buddhism that teaches us that nothing in the universe is permanent.

“Life in any world is unstable, it is swept away, it has no shelter and protector, nothing of its own.”

Boldness in Christ

What if she doesn’t like me? Asks a young man before approaching his crush.
What if the market forces change? Asks a middle aged auntie thinking of a career change.
What if I make the wrong decision? Asks this procrastinating manager.

These are just some of the questions that I face in Christian Counselling. Questions of doubt, of insecurities, and most of all, of fear.  The main question we all worry about is: what if I fail?

Freedom from Perfectionism

Perfectionism doesn’t propel anyone to success, getting the job done does.  We have to see that these 2 do not go hand in hand. Perfectionism drowns the person in needless worries and delays them from getting anything done.

The Hewn Stone

Most of man’s problems arise from discarding God’s ways and replacing it with their own.

Psycho-Spirituality and Christian Counselling

I want to begin by setting the definition that “spirituality”, in the current context of mental health or psycho-spirituality, simply means our relationship to God. So, when we say I have a “healthy spiritual life”, it means that you are in good terms with God.

2017 The Year of Change

Welcome to 2017 and the year of the rooster!

My last log was (shamefully) from a few months ago, and since we still have the new year spirit in our consciousness, I would like to start off with a reminder to everyone about God’s ways to change.  Well, first of all, I do agree that 2017 is a year of change.  And we are actually making ‘Change’ our main theme here in Grace Counselling Centre.

Dr. Strange – Our Awareness to Spirituality

I like this movie because you can see more of Hollywood ‘s push for spirituality.

Dr Strange

All of us are attracted to this realm which we instinctively know exists. Well guess what? This is what the Bible has been saying all along. There is a spiritual component behind everything material; and even the apostle Paul considered this to be more important:

Snowball Blessings

Snow ball slides downhill and speeds up.Blessings are cultivated

A blessing opens doors to more blessings.  It doesn’t just end with one answered prayer.  When The Lord sets you up with a  big project, rest assured that is only the beginning and this will be your open doorway to bigger and greater blessings.
