To stumble and grow: 3 things I learnt during my internship

By Leow Sue Yu By the time you read this, my internship with The Project J would have ended. For a little over two months, I was the Marketing and Creative Intern there. The entire internship was truly such a divine and blessed experience. God’s hand was weaving through my every day in this company. To think that I almost did not apply for this internship! Prior to applying at The Project J, I had already sent out numerous emails to different companies. Literally, none of them got back to me. I remember thinking, “Guess I’ll be jobless this summer break.” Yet, I felt a strong prompting to apply for a job at The Project J. My mind was unsettled...

Learning to be offline in an online world

By Leow Sue Yu I am your typical Gen-Z girl. Whether it’s for socialising or shopping or keeping up with the news, I do it digitally and online. The introvert me absolutely loves it. But even you, the extroverts or ambiverts, we’ve all been living life online. It is just so convenient.  Many of us are familiar with a daily lifestyle surrounded by electronics. Without it, we would literally not be able to function. That’s the exact situation I am in. For months, this has been my daily schedule:  9 am: Wake up, check whatsapp and telegram to reply messages, check Instagram.9.30 am - 6 pm: Start work (which means I’m on my laptop throughout the day, except during my...

They’re often used to describe Christians who are outwardly devoted, don't curse, don't drink, or don’t engage in vices frequently (or at all).

Covid-19 in Europe: How thanksgiving changed the way I viewed getting recalled back.

On Sunday, 15th March, I woke up to a press release from MOE. It was the letter I was dreading: the official recall of all overseas students. My heart was flooded with mixed emotions. I felt relieved as the UK had a surge of Covid-19 cases and I no longer felt safe. But I also felt immense sadness as I was forced to leave this beautiful continent. I remember even asking God, “Did You not want me to get closer to you? Did You not want me to rest? Why are You doing this just as I started settling down in this foreign land?”

Circuit Breaker didn't break them

Since Covid-19 and circuit breaker started, I have been hearing so many stories about couples breaking up or families getting into fights. Some couples struggle with being apart for too long, while some families struggle with being together too much.  I’ve even come across news articles about the predicted surge of divorce cases after the quarantine is over. The reason cited was that the increased interactions led to increased friction and hence, increased conflicts.  The Bible says a lot about conflict management. Ephesians 4:26 says, ‘Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger.’ Matthew 5:24 says, ‘Leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and...
