Own Life

We labor, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of Him. The Christian should always be a worker for his Master. “We are ambassadors therefore on behalf of Christ, as though God were entreating by us.” The mission of every one who believes and is saved is to be a winner of other souls. Our life itself should be a gospel of divine grace, so full of love that every one who comes under our influence, even casually, shall hear a silent message, pleading, “Be you reconciled to God.” The life must always be such an ambassador, first, before we speak a word. The most eloquent pleading will have no effect in winning others to Christ unless the love of Christ be first shown in our life. “God loves you and I love you,” is the only evangel that will reach our hearts. You cannot kindle fire with ice. A selfish man cannot preach a gospel of love to others. The love of God, which we declare, must be interpreted in human love, which we show in our own eager interest in others. We must bear the cross in our own life, or we need not talk about the cross on Calvary.

지금 난리난 버스 승객 갑질 사건 + 근황추가
+ 더 자세한 이야기 경기 광주 2번 시내버스 관련글이 올라온 것을 보다가, 기사님에 대해 '선즙필승이네' 같은 댓글을 본 뒤 이건 아니다 싶어서 글을 씁니다. 저는 버스가 회차하는 곳과 아주 가까운 경기도 광주시 초월읍 도평리에서 버스를 탔습니다. (늘 타는 곳입니다) 사실 그 때, 차가 정말 막혀서 버스가 회차는 제대로 했는데 아예 바로 다음 정거장까지도 기어서 오는 수준이었습니다. 카카오맵 어플로 버스가 어디있는지 수시로 확인했는데 정말 천천히 왔습니다. 근데 그럴 수 밖에 없었던게, 제 눈앞에서도 실제로 차가 몇대씩밖에 못 빠져나갔습니다. 거기 사시는 분들은 알겠지만, 일단 이 조그마한 동네에 쓸데없이 신호등이 매우 많으며 그 신호체계는 연속적으로 초록불이 이어지지 않습니다. 게다가 아파트에서는 계속 차가 쏟아져 나오니, 차가 엄청나게 막히죠. 실제로 그 제가 탄 정류장에서 마을 입구의 큰길까지 걸어가게되면 10분정도의 거리인데, 그 날은 차가 심하게 막혀서 차로 5분거리인 곳이 20~30분 정도 걸려서 겨우 빠져나오게 됐습니다. (종종 이래요) 도평리 쪽 마지막 아파트에서 승객을 태우고 문제의 쌍령,현X아파트까지 갔는데, (다른 글에도 나와있다시피 그 아파트만을 위해 버스가 들어가는지라 거기는 차가 전혀 막히지 않습니다.) 본인들 눈에는 차가 안막히는데 버스가 기어오니 불만이 터졌겠죠. 타는 승객들이, 버스에 올라서면서 족족 불평불만을 하더군요. 그러다가 그 문제의 '남성 승객'이 발언을 세게 했습니다. (저는 버스 뒤쪽에 있어서 얼굴을 못봤는데, 목소리가 젊어서 20~30대 사람인 줄 알았네요. 아저씨인지는 몰랐습니다) 이렇게 늦으면 어떡하냐, 30분이나 늦냐 등등 말하다가 신고하겠다고 협박했습니다. 여기사분 나이도 40대 중후반은 되보이셨는데, 꽤 놀라셨을겁니다. 아무튼 그렇게 크게 뭐라고 한 다음에 계속 궁시렁거리더군요. 뒤라서 정확히 뭐라고 하는지는 안들리는데, 욕같은 느낌이나서 '욕 하고 있나..?' 했습니다. (다른 글 보니 병X, 늦게 오고 난리라고 진짜로 욕했더군요) 여기사분이 이제 억울하고 서러웠는지 차를 잠시 세우셨습니다. (그곳이 지금 버스 정차를 하지 않겠다고 한 곳) 그리고 울먹거리는 목소리로 차가 막혀서 늦었다고 말씀하셨죠. 그랬더니 그 뒤 그 문제의 승객이 하는 말이 가관이더군요. "그래서, 어쩌라고?? 내가 공짜로 타?!?! 돈 내고 타잖아!!!" (중간에 존댓말을 했는지 반말을 했는지는 가물가물합니다. 제가 느낀 기억으로는 말투가 강했고, 소리가 컸으며 기분이 굉장히 나쁜 어조였다 정도) 저렇게 소리를 지르더군요. 그래서 울먹이던 목소리의 여기사님이 결국 울음을 터트리게 되었습니다. 근데 그렇게 우느라 버스 출발을 못하니, 그 남승객이 또 소리를 질렀죠. "아 운전하라고!!!!" 운전할 정신이 있겠습니까...? 바로 옆에 탄 남자가 소리지르고 윽박지르는데? 계속 기사분이 울고 있으니, 그 남자승객이 핸드폰을 꺼내서 버스 회사에 전화 하더군요. "여기 버스 기사가 운전을 안해요. 늦어서 잠깐 뭐라고 한거 밖에 없어요. 시비조 아니었습니다. 이거 문제 아니에요?" 그게 시비조가 아니면, 대한민국에서 다툼은 절대 안일어날 것 같네요. 어휴. 기사분 우는데 그 옆에서 통화 마친 남자 승객이 문열어 달라고 하더군요. 내려서 다른 버스타겠다고 화내면서. 이제 또 버스 기사분이 울면서, 버스 문도 안열어주고 갑자기 멈췄으니 다른 승객들도 화가나서 출발하라고 소리지르고, 지금 뭐하는거냐고 소리지르고 난리가 났죠. 그래도 그 중 한 아주머니가, "우리 다 기사님 나쁘게 생각하는거 아니다. 차가 막혀서 늦은 것을 아니 진정하시고 운전 해주세요." 라고 말씀 하시긴 하셨는데, 그래도 기사님이 진정되지는 않으셨습니다. 기사님이, "제가 손이.. 손이 떨려서... 운전을 못하겠어요." 울면서 말씀하시는데 거기에 다른 분들 화내면서 문열라고 소리치셨고 결국 버스 문이 열리고 다들 내렸습니다. 이게 그 2번 버스의 전부입니다. 그런데 내리고 나서, 아빠한테 전화 걸면서 하소연 하던 여학생. 앞뒤 다 잘라먹고 버스가 다짜고짜 멈춰서 짜증난다고 투정부리셨죠. (그런데 그 아버지분이, 애초에 일찍 나가지 왜 딱맞춰 나갔냐고 뭐라 하신 것 같더군여 ㅋㅋㅋ 잘하셨습니다.) 할아버지 할머니들, 버스 몰면 이 소리, 저 소리 듣고 하는거지 별걸로 다 운다고 유난이라고 하셨죠? 아주머님들, 이 시간에 차 멈추면 어떡하라는거냐고 화내고 짜증내시며 내리셨죠? 그리고 옮겨 탄 버스에서, 새로운 남성 버스 기사님이 뭘 들으셨는지 모르겠는데 약간 멍하셔서 학생들 내리는 버스 정류장을 살짝 지나니까 "요즘 버스 기사들은 정신상태가 무장이 안되어있어 어!!!" 하면서 소리지른 아저씨 있으셨죠? 지하철 역 내리니, 친구랑 쌍욕하면서 "미친X이 갑자기 울고 지X이야." 하면서 고등학생들 지나간거 기억합니다. 저는 이 문제가 단순히 그 한 아저씨의 난리로 시작된게 아니라고 봅니다. 평소에도 늘 그 아파트는 문제가 많았습니다. 그 아파트만을 위해 들어가야하는 급한 경사의 오르막길 도로에, 초등학교도 근처에 있어서 키 작은 학생들이 바글거리고 버스가 유일하게 유턴할 수 있는 곳에 툭하면 주민들이 차로 갑자기 지나가고 막고. 눈이 너무 많이와서, 폭우가 쏟아져서 겨우 도착하면 왜 늦었냐고 문이 열리기 무섭게 타면서 모두 다 짜증내셨죠? 유독 그 아파트에서 타는 분들이 화가 많으신건지 거기가 항상 불평불만이 많았습니다. 저는 그렇기에 이 버스 회사의 대응이 충분하며, 앞으로도 그 위험한 곳에 버스가 들어갈 필요가 없다고 봅니다. 힘들게 들어가서 위험감수하고 유턴해가며 태워서 얻는거라고는 정신적인 스트레스와 욕, 짜증밖에 없습니다. 그렇기에 버스 기사분들의 의지를 존중하며, 아무것도 모르면서 '선즙필승'이라고 하신분은 스스로 반성하길 바랍니다. 이상입니다. ================ 하루만에 재운행 들어갔다고 합니다.

Malegra Guarantees You To Have A Long Erection Time
Problems with Erections: What Number Say Before one tackles the pros and cons of Malegra 100 for erection problems, it’s perhaps important to understand the numbers surrounding the phenomenon in the first place. The general consensus – of both the public and even the scientific community – was that erection problem, or erectile dysfunction, in particular, is a problem only experienced by older men. However, 52-percent of men worldwide actually experience this situation. In fact, a recent study showed that 25-percent of men in outpatient clinics seeking help for erection problems are in fact under 40 years old. It also affects the 40-percent of men above 40, and at least 70-percent of men above 70. Recent studies on Malegra 100 Reviews on the matter are now slowly convincing medical professionals that erectile dysfunction might not be purely due to psychological situations, but also perhaps certain lifestyle or biological situations as well. For instance, the integrity of arterial inflow should be checked in order to see if there’s no physical hindrance in the blood flow to the genitals in order to sustain the erection in the first place. The prevalence of erection problems amongst men might be the reason why a lot of them use supplements to aid with their problems. With this in mind, can supplements like Malegra work in situations where erections are hard to achieve? What is Malegra? Malegra is popularly known as the generic drug alternative to Viagra and contains sildenafil citrate. It’s also a much cheaper version of the popular erection supplement, though Malegra still contains exactly the same dosage of the same drug. Malegra sells for as high as $1.80 or as low as $0.87 per tablet, which is much cheaper compared to Viagra’s $73.85 to $88.45 range. Some Facts about Malegra The supplement has sildenafil citrate, which is considered a PDE-5 inhibitor. This means it’s capable of opening up arteries in the body that are blocked, which in this case are specifically targeted towards arteries in the genital area. It should be able to promote blood flow towards the genital area, smoothening the muscles in the area in order to support a much higher amount of blood flowing into the organ. This helps in order to support fuller and longer-lasting erections, as well as fast recovery after ejaculation. Malegra: Pros and Cons Given the basic understanding shared about Malegra above, it’s important to understand that Malegra isn’t totally the end-all, be-all supplement for erection problems. Users of Malegra, especially new ones, should be aware of various pros and cons that may go with using this product, especially when it comes to their health in general. Pros: Malegra as an Aid for Erection Malegra works in as fast as 30 to 45 minutes, which is a considerable amount of time to prepare regardless if your intimate moment has been planned or if you want to try hooking up with someone in more public settings. Malegra not only has a rapid onset of effect, but its effects can be maintained for up to as long as 10 hours. It’s also known to be able to increase libido, which means you and your partner are in for a good time after you take Malegra. It’s been proven effective for most users, which means it’s capable of dealing with a wide demographic of men regardless of their biological makeup. This means the likelihood of Malegra working even if you have an erection problem is high. Malegra isn’t addictive and doesn’t cause any physiological disorders even when being used long-term. As shown above, Malegra is a much cheaper alternative compared to Viagra. Whereas the latter sells for as high as $88.45 and as low as $73.85, Malegra can be purchased along with the $0.87 to $1.80 price range. Cons: Malegra Dependence Might Not Be Good It’s important to take note that the drug works only when the user is sexually aroused, and it takes as much as 30 to 45 minutes in order to fully work. While it’s well-tolerated by most of its users, it’s not highly recommended for those with cardiovascular problems, and as such it’s advised that prescription is obtained before use. Although it has a considerably high success rate, it’s important to consider that Malegra may not work for particular instances such as when there’s damage to any parts of the organ. Mild side effects of Malegra may occur to users, such as sleeping difficulties, heartburn, swollen ankles, feet, and hands, nose bleeding, flushing, headaches, or dizziness. It’s important for users to pay attention to these and go to a medical professional immediately if any of these side effects don’t disappear. Serious side effects may include prolonged or painful erection, jaw, left arm, or chest pains, fainting, nausea, or even hearing and vision loss. If you experience any of these side effects for a prolonged period of time, do consult a medical professional for an immediate remedy. The Bottom line: You Might Just Need A Helping Hand When it comes to an intimate time with a partner or a spouse, sometimes it can really get frustrating when your penis just can’t get hard enough. Not only does this spell a potentially-unsatisfying time and performance in bed, it can also make you lose confidence in yourself. This is where Malegra comes in – as supplements such as these can get you the kind of push you need to get that successful erection going. However, as the above may have shared, there are pros and cons of using Malegra and other erection-assisting supplements, so be sure to take note of those before buying Malegra online. If you have any concerns that may be related to your erection problems, it may be good to consult a doctor first before consuming any supplements.
Football Betting Tips & Tricks
Sports betting has probably existed since the beginning of the first organized sporting events. Gladiator fights, chariot races, and the early Olympic Games have been the subject of sports betting since ancient times. However, no one knows for sure how deep the historical roots of sports betting really go. Unsurprisingly, today king football is number one in Europe in terms of sports betting. But how do sports betting actually work? The market for online soccer betting, which has exploded in recent years, has cemented this situation even further. If you want to get started now but have little or no idea about football betting, this is the place for you. But also somewhat more experienced contemporaries could well elicit one or the other hitherto ignored note from this text. When did football betting begin? Judging by the fact that football as an organized grassroots sport gained a foothold at the end of the 19th / beginning of the 20th century and rapidly gained in popularity, the first (at least official ...) football bets were well over the course of two decades to come. Only starting from 1921 for the first time in England official football bets were offered. These operated under the name "Toto" and served mainly to finance organized football. With a similar objective and under the same name, Toto was then implemented in Germany after the Second World War. From then on football bets conquered the sports betting market and gradually outpaced the formerly more popular horse racing bets. Unsurprisingly, the popularity of football betting today is analogous to the popularity of the sport itself. Everything about quotas The betting odds given by a bookie tell you how much he will pay for a bet you have made if you bet on that event or outcome. Quotas reflect the chances of victory that a bookmaker gives a team in terms of calculations or which outcome of the game he considers likely. This is then set in relation to each other and the resulting betting odds. However, that is only half the truth. If a bookmaker were content to simply offer the maximum objective odds and thus to anticipate the outcome correctly as often as possible, then he would not be doing his job. To lie correctly is the goal of us as players. The bookmaker, however, wants one thing above all: make a profit! Quotas are often adjusted for this purpose. For example, favorites are deliberately overrated by bookmakers, which means lower odds for their wins. Bookmakers do this very deliberately. Because the majority of players tend to bet on favorite wins and because favorites naturally win more often than outsiders, bookmakers would give away money if they gave objective favorites to the favorites every time. Another factor influences bookmaker odds. The competition among themselves. Especially in times of online football betting and numerous online bookmakers, the competition is very large and odds comparisons are from the perspective of the players only a small finger exercise away. Of course, this has clearly intensified the competitive situation. And so bookmakers often adjust the quotas they offer; simply to make their own bets more attractive. How are the odds displayed and how do sports betting work? Through the Internet, you can easily register with bookmakers beyond the continental European market. However, the odds are sometimes different in these. Even those who want to use a holiday in Vegas "athletic" will run there, a different representation of quotas, and thus a different reading style, on the way. Below are the three most common representations of betting odds. Decimal / continental Europe Of all the quota types, the decimal quotas we know are the easiest to understand. These are represented as decimal numbers with two decimal places (for example, 1.70 - 2.00 - 3.45, etc.). The stated odds always represent the factor by which your own stake is multiplied. So if you bet 10 Euro on an event with a 2.0 win quota, you will receive 20 Euro (minus the fees that the bookmaker keeps). However, factor 2.0 shows the total (!) Payment amount. It is therefore not a net profit of 20 euros but 10 euros profit plus the 10 euros use since the 2.00 are to be understood as a multiplier. If the odds were only 1.00 (which, of course, never happened), you would not win anything but just get your bet back. It is, therefore, a so-called gross quota. This finding is important because it behaves differently in the other two odds models. Odds / United Kingdom As the mother country of football betting, the United Kingdom has a very large market. However, the odds are somewhat different on the islands. First of all, they show the net profit. So the net profit, which one makes in a successful bet. Of course, you also get paid his stake again. However, this is not considered a profit in the sense of the British odds and is therefore ignored in the representation of the odds. The British odds are always presented in simple fractions. For example 5/3. The number in front of the dash (5) represents the profit distributed in the event of success. The number behind the dash describes the amount required (3) to achieve the reported profit (5). Of course, that does not mean you can only bet three pounds. The British odds simply represent the ratio of net profit to stake in a very simplified way. British odds are easily converted into our decimal system. Quote 5/3 5: 3 = 1.67 + 1.00 (to take into account the stake included and thus determine the gross profit) = 2.67 By the way: A 2.00 bet, as in our example for the continental European decimal odds, would typically not be shown in the UK as 2/1 but as even money or just even. The term even money is also used in the American system. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kdk6prcpUKI
“Dear My Most Beloved, Who was Never Meant to be Mine” by Lumina Han
“Dear My Most Beloved, Who was Never Meant to be Mine” by Lumina Han If I never fell in love with you, I would never have understood how destructive, violent, fierce, powerful, selfish, passionate and dangerous love could really be. You made me realize that I could never genuinely love anyone else besides myself. I could never truly give my everything to others, because I expected to receive more than to give. I craved to possess your soul, body and mind more than to embrace you with an untainted heart. And because you became the drive of my downfall, I grasped the truth that I had to let you go. You taught me that falling in love could become the hardest experience that one could ever handle. Meeting you, Seeing you and falling in love with you has been the greatest thrill. Yet, you became the one beam of light that blinded the pitch darkness that I tried to hide from the world. You taught me that I was incapable of devotionally loving you. To sincerely wish for your happiness without me as a part of your future, was an impossibility. I wanted to take ownership of you than for you to be yourself. Because what I really am, beneath my smiles, is that my world revolves solely on my needs and desires. To burn with such a raging fire in my heart for you has driven me into both insanity and clarity. Insanity, because you have forsaken my logic and judgement in those moments when you snatched away the center of my universe. Clarity, because you have revealed the true dark monster that I beheld deep down inside my soul. You have engulfed me in both hell and heaven, and with you I have been on the most thrilling joy of flying high in the sky. Yet because you became my drug, I fell deep down to the endless depths of the lonely, cold ocean, where I could feel nothing but suffocation and heartache. Through both these highest and lowest moments, I have learnt that it was because you never felt the same way as I did for you, that you changed my life forever. I could never be the same again, not because this love was unrequited, but because through loving you, I learnt that the turmoil of emotions I felt for you, weren`t true love at all. I disguised physical chemistry, infatuation, attraction and lust all in the name of ‘love’. Although no one has ever made me feel this much passion and rage as you have, what I felt for you wasn`t absolute love, but rather my own selfish desires and greed projected on to you. Since you walked into my life, you have shed light on how messed up my view of the world really was. Slowly, through the heart wrenching scars that I bleed from falling too deeply for you, I have apprehended things I could never have learnt had you loved me back. It was because we were never meant to be, that I could change. And because our fates were never meant to collide with each other, my paths have diverged away from you and towards you. While I was running away from you, to escape from your consumating presence, I have told myself a million times over to let go of what was never mine to begin with. When I walked closer to you, God taught me that the intense heat I felt for you would burn both of us alive. Because passion that is too rash and too sudden thinks nothing else but using the other to gratify and satisfy one`s own deep lack and emptiness. You were never born to fill up my hole, my scars and my iniquities. You are born to be you, to be the one whom God designed and planned, to be free and liberal from my obsessive presence. You deserve to love someone who loves you the right way, the sincere, faithful and innocent way, as I never did, as I never could have. You loved her instead of me, because my love for you was too lethal and poisonous for us both. Since the day I met you, our story has taken me on a toxic, venomous, annihilative and catastrophic ride towards an inevitable breakdown. You became my destruction, my road to torn deterioration and collapse. I could no longer envision a happy fairy tale ending between us, because the deadly outburst of covet and affection I felt for you consumed my entire being into a fever of stormy delirium. I was mad, crazy about you, and to me, you were all that I ever wanted, all that ever mattered... But because you were much stronger than I ever was, you kept your feet on the ground, and we never crashed into each other with the same disastrous urge and affection. You were my Romeo, but had I also been your Juliet, our story would have ended us in the same tragedy, an end that would have destroyed us both. I was never the one whom you could, would or should ever love. To mistake even for a second that we were one was my greatest delusion, my wildest fantasy and my most absurd illusion that I ever dreamt. Although we can never be together, our story still ends with hope. Because loving you was God`s greatest lesson, gift and inspiration in my life. And for that I am grateful that God brought us together for this period in our youth. Thank you for being the way you were. Because in everything that you were to me, you have been perfect. You made me a better person, without changing me into anyone other than my true self. I became what God made to become, because God let me meet you, fall for you, and grow closer to him through loving you. And because you have taught me what Christ`s love should be, you will forever remain a special treasure and secret deep in my heart, as my most beloved who was never meant to be mine. Even if our destinies never cross paths in the future, no one will ever replace what you were to me, and what you have made me become. And now, at the ending page of our story, I think I can finally love you the way you always deserved to be loved. I will love you even when you love someone else. I will love you even if you never return my love back to me. Perhaps in the future, I will fall in love again, with someone else besides you. And because of the things you have taught me about God and true love, I will love them more sincerely than I ever loved you. My passion for you will gradually wane and be replaced by a new love. But please know that I would never have been able to give them the love that they deserve, had I never loved you first. You were my first one true love, that changed everything for me. I love you in all your entirety, with or without me as a part of your life. Thank you, for being the beginning sentence, the first chapter and the opening of my love story.
