Jingle Bell

Today is New Year Eve and I am on medical leave. There are a lot of chores to do actually..but firstly, will take Jingle Bell for a jab in the veterinary department later on. He is getting pampered nowadays... when he sees us, he expects us to play with him and if we don't he will howl.. wow.. my goodness, just like a baby...
Well, I guess he will howl again when the doc put a jab on his backside later on.....ooooooohhhh...

Christmas Gathering

Christmas this year was celebrated with a festive note of love and sharing in my mother's house. We invited some of our close friends and relatives to our party, started off with makan firrst and then worshipping of songs and praise to our Lord. After that, my brother gave his testimony, followed by mum, brother in law and some cousins. It was a night of touching moments when my auntie and her daughter accepted Lord Jesus into their lives. May God continue to grant them grace to walk along the journey of life. Praise the Lord.

Got A Wish Come True

Christmas is around the corner and we are going to have a party on the 25th in my mother's house. We invited our close friends and relatives to this special occasion and we have special line-up programs for the night. My sister who is residing in Sacramento, does not want to be left out, she is missing home because she is thousands of miles away from us. But thanks to CEIVA Digital Frame, she will be able to see us in a matter of seconds. How?

Well, with CEIVA, we are able to send our photos immediately via computer to the recipient's CEIVA even though they are thousands of miles away from us.

Hectic Day

From morning till now, it was a hectic time for me... Woke up late this morning, rushed to work around 10am, it was a Saturday actually so it was overtime rate for me....
Then around 1pm, I felt very tired mentally, on the way home, stopped to buy some snack, only to realise my wallet was left in my office drawer.... rushed to office again to retrieve back my wallet.. Thank God it was still there...
Then drove home again, only to realise that there was no current in house... sigh...
wanted to watch my badminton...
I guess have to bask in the warmness of the house...

Refreshing Time

These few days I am spiritually dry and tired... for 2 weeks I did not go to church. My focus is somewhere else, perhaps too much of travelling during this December. Hope everything will be back to normal this week, will need to replenish my spiritual growth.. Christmas is around the corner, my family is planning to have a party for our close relatives... most of them are Buddhists so we hope to spread the love of Christ around them. Before I do so, I need to refresh myself first... and bask in the spirit of God..

Painless Torture

MY MOST FEARED PLACE is none other than the Dentist Clinic. This afternoon I took my girl for the braces appointment and since my one of my tooth needed to be refilled, I had to go and get it done too.... Have been postponing the refill for many months now...sooner or later, it might crack and then it would be too late to "save" the tooth.

When I was sitting on the dentist's chair, I prayed.. I really prayed to Lord Jesus.. I said, Lord, please let me have a painless refill.. please, pain please.. kept on pleading... Dentist was not ready yet at that moment. Then something reflected in my mind...imagine... mine is just a refill of the tooth, how about Our Jesus as He waited on his last day on earth, to be beaten so severely and eventually nailed... yes, NAILED ON THE CROSS....HOW PAINFUL THAT COULD BE!!

What is my little tooth to a big nail on the cross?? How little is mine and great is He!
Thinking of that gave me strength... what am I to HIM that He endureth such pain....

God is Great, Jesus is Great..... few moments later, as the dentist was doing his task, I didn't feel anything pain at all.... REALLY... BELIEVE ME....IT WAS PAINLESS!!

Saturday Morning

Thank God for another beautiful morning.... it is indeed a wonderful day in Singapore. My kids are still sleeping but I m fully awake ... Perhaps as I age, I cannot seem to sleep longer than those days. Or is it that I don't want to waste my time sleeping, instead I get up to see what's new in my blog. I think it is more on the latter. I had a strange dream last night.... well, it was strange but nice... Anyway, hope today we will have more time to go shopping, we havent bought anything yet, mostly eating and eating in Singapore.... haha...

We plan, God decides...

Tomorrow I am going for a breakaway to Kuala Lumpur, Malacca, Johor and finally to Singapore to attend Larry's son wedding dinner. Kids and I are looking forward to the trip, may God bless us with smooth journeys, fine weather and wonderful fellowship with one another. Will stop over at Kong's place for a night before adjourning to Singapore the next day. It has been 2 years over since we last stepped into Singapore. Hope the Christmas lights will be in full blast at Orchard Road but this time, we must visit Bugis Street and Vivo City...

That is my plan....when we plan, God will decide...

What Should I do?

It has been a long while since I update my post here.... Life is pretty much the same in the office as well as at home. Parenting can be pretty tough at times when kids and I dont think of the same wavelength. For instance like at this time....
Son finished his last exam paper today ... looking forward to his last paper and more or less, like hallelujah... free from studies, free from now more touching of school books anymore. Going for a farewell party tonite with his classmates, fine with me, he has my blessings to go. Then he called to say he wanted to join his frens at a cyber cafe... and will be there till wee hours in the morning....what? wee hours? 6am?.... yeah....
I cannot, I didnt allow him to go .... he is a good, he came back at 10pm but he wont utter a word to me....and now he is in his own world....
I wonder whether I have done something wrong... Am I too strict? Am I not being open minded?
I dont know what he is thinking but I know he doesnt like it a bit...
I explained... he is quiet... but I will wait... till he opens up again...

Jesus Is Lord

I love this tag I received from Ms Ray, God Bless you, dear....

Proverbs 22:5-6 In the paths of the wicked lie thorns and snares, but he who guards his soul stays far from them. Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. All children must learn that there is only one King of all Kings, and that is:

And now I want to share our Jesus's love with Marvz, Mel, Cecile, Jhelea and Marly....and all who comes by here.. Do take this wonderful tag.. Jesus Is Really Our Lord...

My Prayer Answered...

I must really praise the Lord for His answering of my prayers..hahaha...Not that it is important, but I am really happy He hears me.

My office internet connection has been out for a few days already and no one was bothered to call and follow up with the IT people. As for me, I am like .. restless... I feel something is missing when there is no internet during working I addicted?

Well, anyway, I pray to God about this... I pray that if He is willing, please let there be a connection again... haha.... and Yes.. He is willing.. After making a few frantic calls to here and there, it was of no avail... but exactly 5 minutes to 5pm, the final call came... He said I can try switching on my pc now... and Yes, Yes... the line is here to stay again...

Thank You, Lord... I will pray again for anything that comes in my way... If You are willing, Lord, You do what is right....

The Emptiness In Me...

This whole afternoon, the internet was down in my office and in my quiet time, I switched on a worship songs CD.... the smooth peaceful songs were so refreshing to listen to and suddenly I felt a pang of sadness seeping into my heart. It was an empty feeling, I felt I was alone...alone in the sense that I have neglected my Lord, my God... and it was a kind of a lonely feeling. Have I really stray away recently? Did I not spend time with Him and be close to Him as I have before? What have distracted me......

I must go on... I must continue to run the race.... I cannot stop where I am now.... I need Jesus in my life, without Him, surely there is no meaning in the sense that.. why am I here.. what am I doing now... Where shall I go ... and how I am going to live on...WITHOUT HIM BY MY SIDE???

Help me me to focus more on You and less of me.... You are Needed... every now and then... Continue to Disciple me.... I humbly pray....

Wake Service

Last week one of my cell member's husband has passed on...leaving my friend a widow now with 2 grown up children. During the wake, the deceased's brother spoke of him, how he was taken care of by his elder brother, protecting him during the Japanese occupation time. Then he wanted to dedicate this song Jesus, We Enthrone You and we stood up to sing. While singing halfway, he just broke down and cried ... He cried with despair and frustration because he couldn't express how much he loved his brother while he was still alive.

It was indeed very touching and I couldn't help not shedding some tears as well. This wake has jolted me up a bit.... now we are with our love ones, we shouldnt take them for granted... while we still have time, let us express our love for them.. we will not regret later...

I listened with a span of disgust this morning as my friend related to me about a man who is going for a short trip in Ho Chi Min. His intentions is to look for some "fun" over there, without fear, with a relaxing mind and anticipation. He wants to go to karaokes to have a room with his friends and same time, he wants to look at the poor girl stripping off piece by piece... When I heard that, I feel so sad.. sad to hear that there is this man who wants to have that thrill and doing goodness-what.

Then coincidently, today daily bread speaks of lust in humans. The lust of the flesh, the insatiable appetite to indulge in pleasures that inflame the flesh but never satisfy. Well, humans do tend to be lustful, knowing very well, it is just a short pleasure but it is still a never ending lust.

True satisfaction can only be found in our love ones and from our heavenly Father, true relationship is found only when we give our affections to eternal things...

"The world is passing away, and the lust of it, but he who does the will of God abides forever"
1John 2:17

Let worship be for God, not for us...

Ever feel down when it turned out not what you expected it to be? Well, I did.. I was feeling that way when my worship leading was not what it turned out to be...

Yesterday, we had a good and exciting time practising the songs in church before today's morning service. Everything seemed to be going on smoothly yesterday and we were looking forward to lead worship this morning in front of the congregation.

I don't know exactly what happened, suddenly, I lack the confidence in doing the "echoing" and it didn't turn out good, in fact, it was bland during that particular song. I don't know why I couldn't follow up with the "echo" on that song....I felt very disappointed, I still do...

Just now I received a sms from Jane, my pastor's wife, complimenting us of the worship... I didn't feel better, in fact, I replied that I hope to do better next time, thanking her.

Shortly after that, these words came to my mind... it is not the worship that counts, it is the focusing on God that matters.. When we worship, it is more important to focus on God and not just sing with our hoo haa voices...

Bible Translation

Just came back from church an hour ago. Tonite message from Mr Louis Ratnam was very short and brief but it brought the meaning of Bible Translation to the congregation. He related to us the importance to reach out to so many people, all over the nations. To the distance and to the near as in Malaysia, there are still 108 translations to be needed for the understanding of the Malaysians. Kudos to the missionaries who sacrifice so much of their lives to do the works of our Lord Jesus Christ. May their good work reach out to the many peoples of the world....

Feel The Peace

My Methodist church is from a smaller town where I am staying. It holds two services, one on Saturday evening and the other one on Sunday morning. My church holds around 300-400 people, with rows of pews on wooden benches and a stage that holds a full band of 5 musicians and 4 leading worshipers. It is a traditional type of building, not too big and yet, it is very homely-like and comfortable too.

During school holidays, whenever I go to the city where my brother stays, we will attend church services in a theatre-like building. Actually it was formerly a big theatre and now being restored into a church. Upon entering , it is like going into a enormous worshiping place where one can really feel the love and care among one another. The seats are positioned in a reclining angle so that no one will be blocked by anyone from the big screen. In fact there are three screens, one in the middle and two more screens at a 45 degrees angle. The stage is 3 times as big as my church which holds a bigger band and more worship leaders. When the music starts, the sound system is loud and clear and you can worship your whole heart out without feeling shy or conscious. One can really bask in the surrounding of the Holy Spirit moving among our midst.

For those who wants to come to feel the lovely ambience's of our God, do come and attend the event hosted by CineMeetings & Events. Find out more in this coming event which will bring together respected thought leaders, pastors and church leaders from the nation’s most innovative growing churches. You will find out more when you attend the first-ever inaugural Theatre Church Conference in Silver Spring, MD on October 22 & 23.


Spend A Quiet Time

When I read the Daily Bread just now, I asked myself this question that brings out the busyness in me... How much time did I spend with my Lord?
Day in, day out, I am doing my own personal stuff, all that is routinal and I do them without giving a moment to God... at the end of the day, I say my daily prayers to Him and at times I feel bad because I know I didn't really spend a quiet time with Him, to read His words and linger awhile with Him...
Just now when I read this passage, it reminds me again...
Now this is my quiet read and to linger and to blog about how I feel...
This quote touches me...

Take time to be holy
The world rushes on
Spend much time in secret
With Jesus alone
Jesus longs for our fellowship even more than we long for His...

Roses For You...

This beautiful Rose tag was given to me by a beautiful blogger, Constance and I want to thank her very much for sparing a thought for me.....

Seeing this rose reminds me of a poem during my schooling days when we were asked to sign autographs with one another... it goes like this...

Rose are Red, Violets are Blue, Sugar is Sweet But Not as Sweet As YOU.....

Well, though it may sound childish and common nowadays, nevertheless, it brings a refreshing thought and makes one smile when one lingers on it...

Ok, now for the rules....

The rules of the award are:

1. The winner can put the logo on her blog.
2. Link the person you received your award from.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put links of those blogs on yours
5. Leave a message on the blogs of the girls you’ve nominated.

I want to give this roses to my friends, you have been very supportive, cooperative and blogative... haha.. I wonder there is such a word.. anyway, all of you are very sweet...

Uzziel, Cathy, Narutochen, Miss Ray, Kelly, Merlyn and Serene.

What Would You Do...

This morning I came across a question ... "When people observe your life, do they see the love of Christ in you?" OH dear, this is one question that probes into our daily lives.. As for me, I don't have the courage to say that my friends see Christlike characters in me. Each night in my prayer, I do ask God to forgive my trespassing and help to mould me, discipline me ... I know I have not been bringing Him glory and honour to His name.. At times, during the nights, I reflect back what I have done or said during the day, did I do anything to shame my Lord..

And some words from a book came to my mind... When we are accosted with difficult situations, let us think for a few moments...asking ourselves, what would Jesus do if He is in our place? I am sure if we spare a few moments to think, the answer will be there.....

I want my heart His throne to be
So that a watching world may see
His likeness shining forth in me
I want to be like Jesus, yes, its He...

A Small Talk

This blog of mine didn't have any google ranking at all, only the N/A sign was there.. then lately, when I heard bloggers commented on their PR, I also did some checking on my 2 blogs. The other one is an active blog but unfortunately still 0 ranking, whereas this blog of mine is an inactive one, I have PR1. I am still surprised till today because I know I didn't pay much attention to my blog here.
Well, I hope my posts here will not discourage or cause any misgivings in any way. What I have written, it is all from my opinion and rantings. Please forgive me if I have cause any discomfort to any readers.
May God Be The Judge...
Thank you.

Where Peace Begins

While blog-hopping to Kian Hin, I came across my favourite local artistes, Jaclyn Victor and Daniel Lee, both being Malaysian Idol winners, singing a duet.. a song in conjunction with the GLOBAL PEACE FESTIVAL 2008. I listen to the song over and over again, it is truly nice... I must share with all of u here...... oh dear, I don't know how to upload it to my blog here..let me paste the lyrics first. Just copy and paste this link and u can all hear the song too...thanks to Kian Hin.

Jaclyn: Here we stand together
One in all humanity
For we are sister and brother
We are one family
Daniel: Its our school of love and peace
Where we've learned there's a way
For the world to live in harmony
And together we all say
Jaclyn n Daniel(chorus): This is where peace begins
Here we sow the seeds of love
It all starts with our knowing
We are one family
We are one family under God
Jaclyn: Marilah kita bersama
Bersatu dan berharmoni
Hidup aman sejahtera
Di bumi tuhan ini
Daniel: Berbeza bangsa dan agama
Namun kita bersaudara
Dunia ini milik bersama
Biar aman selamanya
Jaclyn n Daniel(chorus): This is where peace begins
Here we sow the seeds of love
It all starts with our knowing
We are one family
We are one family under God
Under God
We are one
This is where peace begins
Here we sow the seeds of love
It all starts with our knowing
We are one family
We are one family under God
This is where peace begins
Here we sow the seeds of love
It all starts with our knowing
We are one family
We are one family under God
We are one family
We are one family under God
We are one family
We are one family under God

Give Thanks

Each time we celebrate a cell's member birthday or like some other occasion like a birth of a newborn baby, we will sing "Give Thanks". This song is appropriate for all happy times that we really are thankful unto our Lord. Don Moen can give a very sentimental version of this song.

Give Thanks with a grateful heart
Give Thanks to the Holy One
Give Thanks because He's given Jesus Christ His Son (repeat again verse)
And now let the weak say I am strong
Let the poor say I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for me (repeat again chorus)

Postponed Meeting

This morning I met some of my cell group members having breakfast in a coffeeshop. I stopped by and asked them how the meeting went last Friday night. To my surprise, they didn't have the cell group meeting, not only I was unable to attend, there was a few others who had some committed appointments, couldn't make it too. So in a way, the meeting was called off but they told me, this coming Friday, make sure we are all available.
Well, I have to make sure, this Friday, hopefully, nothing urgent pops up.....

We Are 'Comforters'

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 tells us:

The Father of mercies and God of all comfort.....comforts us in all our tribulation that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God"

Though we are faced with trials and crisis, do not be dampened. We have our Almighty with us for it is written, He will Never Leave us Nor Forsake us.... instead when we are facing turmoils in our lives, we take it as a pillar of strength so that when others face the same consequences, we offer back our comfort that we receive from God to comfort others...

God does not comfort us to make us comfortable but to make us comforters as well....


Jokes extracted from my church Family Focus...

"There is the story of a pastor who got up one Sunday and announced to his congregation. "I have good news and bad news.... The good news is, we have enough money to pay for our new building program. The bad news is, it's still out there in your pockets."

A father was approached by his small son who told him proudly. "I know what the Bible means!" His father smiled and replied, "What do u mean, you know what the Bible means?" The son replied, "I do know!" "Okay," said his father "What does the Bible mean?"
"That's easy, Daddy." The young boy replied excitedly. "It stands for 'Basic Information Before Leaving Earth."

Staying Awake

Gosh... I m still awake..its 1am now... my mind is still very active... I remember, I slept for 2 hours during the afternoon break. No wonder... but then I better hit the pillow... one more post to cover and off to sleep, tomorrow or should I say today, I am going to watch Mama Mia with my buddies. I heard its a nice show...ok, I do my review tomorrow.... Goodnite.

Song Lyrics

Just want to share this... there is this website whereby we can find songs lyrics with guitars chords, it is very useful for those who wants to play the guitar and sing as well... there is this song whichI find very touching, each time when it is played in church, it never fails to touch my heart and will bring tears to my eyes...


When trouble comes, I trust in You

For I know You will lead me through

And I know You are faithful till the end

And when the storms are drawing near

When I'm with You, I dont have to fear

You're my shepherd on whom I can depend

Through the days, through the nights

I know You're always be by my side

Lord You are always here with me

There is no changing God in thee

You are the same, yesterday and today and forever more

Here on your promises I stand

You hold my future in your hands

My solid rock, Almighty God, I worship You....

A Short Prayer

Recently when in the inspiring mood, I wrote this short poem about My God, My Lord... to remind myself to start a prayer each day....

Before we venture out each day
Lets take time to say a prayer
Be it short, be it sweet,
Let the words rise up to Him

A word of thanks, a word of praise
From Him always, we'll receive grace
There is no other gods besides our Lord
He is Alpha, Omega, our one and only God

A Friend In Need

1 Timothy 6:18 tell us to do good and be ready to give, willing to share.. because God is the ultimate giver. He gave His son, to offer us new life (John 3:16).

As quoted in the Daily Bread... "Because God gives us all we need, let's give to others in their times of need".

No Nobodies

1 Corinthians 12:12-31

These verses reflect the organs in our bodies.. as written by Paul, he said that we have spiritual gifts in each of us... Eyes see, ears hear, hands work and feet move the body forward. All are important and when each functions, the whole body benefits.

When we have weaknesses, we also have strengths. God has given each of us at least one gift to use for the good of the church. We need one another.... in other words, tehre are no nobodies.


Last night was cell group meeting but I couldn't manage to attend due to an appointment. I felt quite bad about it because it is supposed to be held in my house and now my members got to change venue due to my absence. Anyway, thanks to my sister, Chun, she managed to lead worship with her beloved guitar and also appreciation to Samuel who led the first lesson on the New Testament of the New Discipleship Book. Well, I hope they had a wonderful fellowship last night and I am looking forward to hearing it tonite from my sister during church's service.

Worship For MSF Dinner

Senior Methodist Dinner on the 30th September 2008.

Normally I look forward to going for dinners, where can sit comfortably and wait for the food. But on that night, I was having some jittery feeling because my sister and I have to lead worship for the first time in a dinner and having our guitars as the only back up music...
Thank God... after the prayer, the nervousness was almost gone and thanks to my sister, she was very steady too...

we arrived early to warm up.... the tables still empty...

these 2 men are special guest stars for the night..they were rehearsing too..

and then the worship started....

and ended with the 5 lovelies singing Whispering Hope and Country Roads... the one on the left is my sister...

Birthday Blessings

Last Thursday our cell group attendcd Samuel's birthday party... started off with some worship songs... I chose 3 songs , started off with "W're together Again, I Lift My Hands and Give Thanks"..... it was a night of celebration, everyone was enjoying the goodness of the Lord and His grace, food was abundant, a wonderful fellowship among us and awesome singing from everyone.... whatever voices we have, high, low, key off, anyone were having a good time ...Praise The Lord..

Wednesday, September 17, 2008


Just now around 8.30pm, I received a call from Jennifer... her voice sounded very coarse over the phone and then she told me she was having fever and cough. After talking for a few minutes, she asked me whether I could take her to hospital clinic... actually I was feeling very tired, it was not a good excuse. But before I answered her, I asked where her husband was. He was also at home with her and her grandchild. I felt very bad after telling her to call her husband to take her instead. The thought of having to wait so long at the government hospital sort of made me rather reluctant.

AFter I hung up, I really felt bad..very bad.. I was thinking of my own self instead of her.. I was pushing back to her husband instead of me volunteering to take her. Is that how I should behave? I am definitely very wrong... after this guilt hitting me, I quickly made a call back to her. No reply, called her handphone also no reply, eventually, called her husband... he answered ... he took her to hospital but it was not open because it is a public holiday today....

Anyway, the reason is not whether the hospital is open or not.... it is the fulfilment of request that need to be questioned... I have done wrong today... I shouldnt have push her request back to her husband...I should have drove her when she called me... I realise this is a very bad mistake on my part and I feel very remorseful now...

Baptism = New Life

One of the most important events in a Christian's lifetime is the baptism day... to confirm our faith unto our Lord Jesus Christ through the baptism. It is like a re-birth, reborn, as a new baby, literally, as a new born Christian, to Accept, Believe and Confessing our sins... easy like ABC as in my blog title.

The sinner's prayer is easily proclaimed... Accept our Lord Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, Believe that He is the Son of God and Confess our sins before Him, cleansing our past sins and now we have Him in our lives, He will guide us in our daily lives.... PROVIDED we allow Him to....

Serving With Honour

Last night, for the first time, I witnessed my son, Andy, playing the drums for the Saturday church service in church. It was the second time he was with the church band. Darren, the band leader had approached him asking whether it would be affecting with his SPM studies or not. Andy replied him that it is an honour to serve God... I am indeed proud of him saying that.

It is indeed an honour to serve our Lord Jesus, in any way that we can, if there is a calling, we should abide and turn ourselves in. I believe there is a gift in everyone, as written in the bible. Those who can preach, let them evangelise. Those who can sing well, join worship, those likes mission, will go for missionary work, like in street on and so forth.

Not everyone has the same interest or gift... I know I dont have the gift of preaching or evangelising.... some have the gift of praying, they know how to pray very well, for the church and for others. But above all, God sees our much are we giving our time for Him? How willing are we? Have I sacrifice much for Him? I should have done more and could do more.... it is just not enough as it is now....

The Youth Bible

AA wanted to get a Bible for his cell group member, something simple and easy to understand.. We went to Gladsound but there weren't many choices there... finally we stopped by at the Shekinah Community in Ipoh Garden East where we caught hold of this Youth Bible.

My girl said it is cool... eventually, I ended buying one for ourselves... It is made simple and for those new Christians or youths, I would recommend this Bible for reading pleasure. But it would be more appropriate that we should have a NIV Bible too, for meditation purposes.

This Bible cost only RM19.90..... I have been reading it each night to have a better understanding of God's words...

It Is Good Enough...

For the past few days, I have been reading short notes from this booklet "Anchors In The Storm" and sharing them here and I hope in a way or another, it will be able to help us in our daily lives.

This morning as I came across this short passage, I want to share with all of you, especially those who are gong through pain. I hope as I go along, we will encourage each other with our daily walk with God.

"For those who know God, pain is a process with a certain purpose. We dont make it through tough times...We are made through tough times - made into the beauty of Christ Jesus. And that is good enough."

God's Promise

There were many times I was troubled, sometimes with problems with my family, my friends and even my boss, I was suffering in silence. And when one keeps quiet, stress will seep into our lives and stays there for good. I have experienced that before and thank God, the feeling of being troubled or hurts are often gone after a day or two.

I believe that when trials put us on public display, its our privilege....not to say we should welcome problems or pain... knowing, this is a fallen world, everyone has to experience these regardless they believe in God or not.

As Christians, we have something to fall back on. When trouble comes, by faith, we cling to His
In Hebrews 13:5
"Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you"
Romans 8:28
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His Purpose"
Even when there's no light at the end of the tunnel, when you are in a deepening darkness and your heart is broken, these promises are true and will provide our source of stability.

After my previous post on holding on to God when life seems to be crushing down on us, I have to go on with verse from 2 Corinthians 4:7-9.

"Eventhough we are hard pressed on every side, we are not crushed, we are perplexed but not in despair, persecuted but not abandoned, struck down but not destroyed."

Knowing this, if anyone feels there is no more hope, life is totally a mess, don't give up. I know its easier to say than done...just remember this...God is always holding us with His Right Hand. We may trip and stumble at times but its OKAY..... BECAUSE HE IS HOLDING US.

God's power will ultimately and finally protect us and keep us from complete destruction.

Never Give UP...

I have heard of cases like.... when something bad or serious happen in a family, be it the loss of a love one or some incurable sickness or accidents occur, the first question one would normally ask is "WHY?, WHY DID IT HAVE TO HAPPEN? WHY ME? WHY??"

For a non believer, one might take it as fate... it is fated to it is an unlucky day.. so on and so forth. But for a Christian, one might not be able to take it and naturally blame it on God. And for some, they will just have to accept the loss and allow God to have full control of the situation.

As Christians, we must remember that God has not promised us that our lives will be easy and indeed, it may not be. BUT He has promised to sustain us in our struggles and uphold us with His mighty arm. We must trust Him. No matter how difficult trials we may have to face, never fear or give up. God will never allow us to be pressed beyond endurance. That is His sure promise.

In trials we face, God is our comforter...

To Love Or Not To Love?

Upon reaching office, I had a few minutes of quiet time reading a topic on God's power on our enemies. I dont really dislike anyone, not to the extent of hurting them, no, but there are only one or two who tend to irritate, not severe but just irritating. So how to avoid being irritated? Am I doing something to them that make them irritate me? I have to ask myself....

Written here in Romans 12:17, "Do not repay anyone evil for evil....Mt. 5:43 says Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you....If you love those who love you, what reward will you get?...If you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?"

I know at times its not easy to love those who cause us injustice. And the verse says if we love those who love us, then there is nothing different from others and eventually we are not serving God's purposes upon us.

Read this.. One older woman went to see her pastor, complaining heatedly about her husband to him. She has been married to him for 40 years and as she went on and on complaining how miserable and bad her husband was, the pastor finally said, "Why have u lived with him so long if he's so bad?" He was not encouraging her to break up, he just wanted to know the reason why.. and she startled the pastor by telling him that if she walks out of the marriage, that means she couldnt torment her husband anymore and for her, THAT was the only reason for staying!!

Well.... are we going to be like her one day? Or will we forget our anger and bless those who are our enemies?

God Will Make A Way..

One verse that always keep me going is from Romans 8:28 which says In all things, God works for good who loves Him and who are called according to His purpose. I feel very consoled and well assured by this verse that God will always be with me and uses His power to bring that which is bad to something good. So people who are in Christ, do not despair when something terrible happens in our lives... have faith and move on... be rest assured God is in control at all times..when we feel we are helpless, there is always a light directing our paths to better and higher realms.. just have faith and believe...

God's Blessing Upon DUMC

Right Choice with HIm

JUST NOW I READ SOMETHING ABOUT CHOICES... as long as I can remember, I always plan my own choices, plan my own ways, what to do, where to go, who to be with, till today too... I admit I overlook God many times, always focusing on my own plans instead of consulting Him in prayers. When I read this verse "Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve...But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord" Joshua 24:15., it reminded me that I should put God first in my life, since I have whole heartedly accept him as my Lord, there should be less of me and more of Him.

Written here, it is not always an easy choice to serve God but it is a choice that brings the kind of consequence we can live with .... always.... cos He loves us and will truly take care of us...

Our Load Limits

I love this verse because it has applied to my life and it is a consolation to know that our God is faithful. When I was faced with hardship those days, it was very painful, I thought I was all alone facing the trials and the storms ahead, whether I was able to cope with the difficulties or not, it was kind of unbearable.

When I come to know in Corinthians 10:13, it says, "God is faithful, He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear", it is a great relief....that shows God knows us individually, inside out, our strength, our weakness...He will not allow anything more than we can bear. He knows our "load limit", He wont allow us to be overloaded with what we can bear.

If He permits trouble to come into our lives, it's bearable..............

I havent been there for quite some time already and it was truly amazing...the worship was fantastic... it reminds me of DUMC in PJ.... the hall was fully packed... I was thinking, wow, the church here was on fire with the Lord...the atmosphere was really filled with the Holy Spirit....its really true....With God, nothing is impossible..

Wonderful Experience

I really enjoyed the worship in praise and prayer night...most of us who attended were so in the mood of worship...we could hear the spirit of laughter too....even the pastor was complimenting on the worship team after the service... of course, it was not the sweet voices or the music that counts, it was the atmostphere, even before it began, the enviroment was like filled with the Holy Spirit that had come within our midst, with our worries left aside, we sang and serenaded to the songs... it was indeed a wonderful night...I didnt regret going, I admit I dont normally go for P&P, well, Thank God, He arranged it for us to be there to experience the tremendous worship and the testimonies...

For All You Done...

There were some songs sung at the Praise And Prayer night last Friday that touched many hearts.... Our opening songs were Come On And Celebrate, it was awesome, the congregation was touched and were so happy worshipping, it started off very well, followed by For All You Done... another awesome song, esp the part ...

"Cause You came near, From the everlasting, To the world we live, our Father's only Son...And You lived, and You Died, and You rose again on high, And You showed us the way, For the world to live again, Halleluyah, For all You done..."

Yes, thank you Lord Jesus, for coming to the world to die for us so that we are forgiven through the cleansing of Your Blood... All praise goes to You....

Prayer Answered...

Brother In Law gave a testimony yesterday... he nearly lost his wallet... from old town he went to new town, he realised the wallet was not in his he rewinded his journey, where he went, asked the shop owners whether they found any wallet, at the same time hoping some would be honest enough.... but still in vain. Feeling helpless and hopeless, he turned to God... while driving, he and my sis prayed together in the car.... Half way in Jalan Fair Park, he suddenly stopped the car, he told my sister he had to look again in the car...this time under the seat... True enough, his wallet was intact UNDER the car seat... then he told my sister, why he stopped... he said something prompted him to look under the seat.... and he was so awed when he saw it there.. Praise the Lord.. my sister told him, what prompted him is the Holy Spirit.... Holy Spirit is always with us all the time...He is the deposit given by God...He is our guide who 'knocks' on our head when we take the wrong ways in life at times... He is our Holy Spirit within us...
Thank You Lord Jesus, thank you Holy Spirit and all thanks given to our Almighty God...

God Our Father

This evening I went to Praise & lady gave a testimony of her nephew. Her nephew's mum died when he was 2 .. and when he was pursuing his degree, his father passed on too. He was very devastated, with himself and with God. He was so furious, he cried with anger and to God, asking why, why, it has to happen to him... why take away his father when he already doesnt have a mother.... it went on for days and days...crying out to God and feeling so helpless and angry...

Until one day, he came home, he told his her amazement, he said, "God talked to me.. God really talked to me, I have heard Him.... He is there when I was so angry.. I heard His voice, gentle soft saying Am I Not Your Father?" He was shocked that he can really hear Him...and he finally realised that all is not lost....

God is our heavenly Father, when He can take care of the birds and trees, surely He will care for our every needs too... In our most depressing mood, if we could only spare some time to listen, He will talk to us, He will be with us, in us and for us....If only we LISTEN.....

How Fit Am I?

2 Corinthians 4:16...This verse is very comforting to those who fear getting old. It says "Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day."

No doubt we fear getting old and getting sick, but we must remember that each passing day, we are reaching a nearer goal in life, ie...going nearer to God...where there will be no more sorrows, no more sickness, no more death.... and only glorious moments with our God Almighty.

So its never too late to become spiritually stronger, its not too late to dig deep into God's words and invest more time with HIM.... When we choose this way, there will be no regrets....

I like this quote "To get better with age, get ourselves spiritually fit"

The Weapon In Us

In human beings culture, there are certain food that we abstain from the Bible old testament, it is written that blood from animals are not supposed to be drank ... and in the new testament, all food are considered clean and the most unclean are words from our mouth...

The most dangerous 'weapon' in us is the mouth and the tiny tongue to go with it. Words spoken are very important, though it is very small, it can set up a great war from there... So it is very important that we use our words with wisdom and care so as not to 'injure' or hurt anyone in our usage of our tongue.

Use our tongue to bless others
Little words can mean a lot
Unwisely words can hurt
Be careful with each word..

The Love Gift

I strongly believe that God gives each of us a hidden talent and many of us might not realise we have that talent till later years in life...some might find out in their younger years, some older and some might not know at all....

As in 1 Corinthians 12:4-11, it clearly stated that God uses us for what He has given us. It is also called spiritual gifts.. some have the gift of preaching, evangelising, music and many others that we might not know of. Its written here in Daily Bread...that if we dont know what our gifts are, volunteer to do something for the church that interests us...and ask our friends if they think we are gifted in that area or not...

Lets not waste our gifts that the Lord has given us...

Father, show us the way
Father, lead thy path
Let us know
Your gift of Love

My All In ALL

After reading the daily bread just now, it again triggers me on... Many times I have taken God for granted... no doubt He is always with me but most times, I make my own decisions instead of praying about it before I decide. Thank God for His Holy Spirit that prompts me at times to remind me..."hey, u are not alone"....

God is always with us, in us and for us.... so when He is for us, who can be against us? NO fear, no worries.. remember that, me....

When thou goest, take me with you

When thou come, I will be still

When thou see, I want to feel

When thou love, I come to You..

Godly Sacrifice..

In today's daily bread, it speaks about our sacrifices for God and it make me wonder again... did I do something for God? Did I sacrifice my time cheerfully and willingly for Him? Or is it done as a ritual or a routine? Prayers I make each day, are they a routinal kind of thing? I have to ask myself these questions before I can really understand what is really sacrifice...

I am now in a comfort zone, I have to confess I didnt make any big sacrifices for God, on the other hand, He makes much more countless sacrifices for me.... He has sacrifice His own son, Jesus to die for us so that we can come to know Him... His biggest sacrifice for us because He loves us as His own....

Here is my heart, Lord Jesus,
I have but one for Thee;
Oh, let my heart be Thine alone,
Thy will be done in me. —Mick

Help me to leave a big portion of my life to sacrifice for You, Lord...

What Seeds Are We Sowing?


Have I ever feel tired doing good? Did I do anything good to others? Nowadays I have a short memory, it is like just blanking out.... one day when I have to stand before God and if He were to ask me, I really would like Him to grant me a good memory first before I can recall back...

I guess as for now, it doesnt matter what I have done in the past, be it good or bad, what is important is that now as I live each day, I will do my best to do best for others, with God's guidance and the Holy Spirit to lead me, there will surely be something that I can sow....

I m no angel, not angelic even.. but tonight this question came to my mind... What seeds are we sowing now?

Someone told me this before.. Marriage is not a marriage without a journey full of challenges .. marriage will only be called a marriage when both has succeeded in making it work, hard work, a commitment and responsibility towards one another, respect too...........

Marriage is just not a mere relationship between 2 persons, not a bed of roses either...

When I see a young loving couple together with eyes gazing for each other only, I can only smile silently... but when I see an elderly old couple, walking slowly... hand in hand... wow, I really must give them due respect and this is the couple I want to admire and feel happy for them.. it touches me in a way....

“For better or for worse,” we pledge,
“Through sickness and through strife”;
And by the help and grace of God
We’ll keep these vows for life. —D. De Haan

Love is more than a feeling, it’s a commitment.

Be Thankful

AFTER READING THIS, it reminded me that whatever riches or material things I have now with me are only from this world... that I cannot take them with me nor they matters for they are only temporary.

But what I have now, I am really thankful to God our Lord Father in heaven for His abundant blessings upon my life as well as my kids' lives... indeed, there is no way that we can be what we are today, without Him, we are nowhere... all glory and honour goes to Him who has and still is taking care of us daily...He fills our lives with unconditional love and his showers of blessings are unnumbered...

We thank Thee, Lord, for daily food,
For plenteous store of earthly good;
For life and health we still possess,
With house and home so richly blessed. —Mohler

With all my heart....

All of us are infected with the fatal disease of sin (Rom. 6:23). But the righteous wrath of God against transgression has been fully satisfied through Jesus’ death in our place. All we need do is repent, recognize Him as our Savior, and receive the spiritual cure for sin. Have you made that decision?

The above was extracted from the Daily Bread dated 30/6/2008... it read of deadly diseases in this world of ours...but in the ultimate ending, the most deadly disease is SIN... but who have never sin in this world? Who.... There is none other than our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God who brought him into this world to suffer for our sins and dying on the cross for us, taking all our sins upon Him... who would have done that for us...

Through Him, now we have the remedy for our deadly sins...through Him, we are redeemed.. through Him, we are made whole and now we have Him in our lives, He who has conquered the grave and death has lost its victory. Now through Him, we have eternity... what else can we ask for...and its all free... we just have to proclaim Him in our hearts....that is all it takes...

This song was sung during last Sunday's service...

With all my heart, I will follow after You
With all my soul, I will love You, O Lord
With all the strength that You have given me, I'll not be led astray
With all my heart, I will walk in Your ways....

This song takes on strong commitments from us.... do we dare to follow wholeheartedly?

Psalms 128 : Family Love...

This passage caught my attention cos I have 3 children still around their teens... As a single parent, at times, I really feel I dont know how to face a situation with my teenage kids, what should I do, how do I react to such problems, what is my advice for them or how should I relate to my way correct....have i taught them the right thing.... all these will arise when I am faced with a dilimma and sometimes I blew my top trying to get it right but ended up worsening a situation....

Now when I read this passage, it says, love them unconditionally because they live in a conditional world whereby whatever they face each day now, in my time, we dont have that kind of enviroment or situation...

And I, as a mother needs to lead them to Christ not through by rule but their own heart's desire and love for Christ ...

Parents, give your children guidance
And instruction from God’s Word;
Then with wisdom and compassion
Teach them how to love the Lord.

Don’t merely spend time with your children—invest it.

No Complaints, No Grumbles..

Phillippians 2:12-18...

Living each day, doing our daily work, no doubt there are hassles and bustles, many times I tend to complain...not really complain and grumble in that sort, but mostly on our daily topics, and the most common topic is about the politics, politics and more politics....

Not so much on my own personal life, God is providing us necessities each day, really I m very thankful to Him...its really impossible to do it on my own... for it says, it is God who works in us to will and to act according to His good purpose, He provides, we act accordingly...

Without God, there would be no who is living a blessed life with my who are really loved by God no matter how rough our paths may be, let us not grumble and complain for He is really IN us and FOR us....

When things go wrong, I would not be a grumbler,
Complaining, seeing everything as grim;
For when I think of how the Lord has blessed me,
I cannot help but give my praise to Him.

When you feel like griping, start counting your blessings.

(Extracted from today's daily bread)

What A Friend We Have In Jesus...

TODAY our daily bread is on Friendship...and I say... living a life without friends is not LIFE...

As Jesus had said in John 15:9...He imphasized on loving our friends just as He has love us... He obeys God's commands and thus God loves Him....

In this world, we have friends around us...but how much are we doing for our friends? Ok, lets talk about me, how much am I sacrificing my time for my friends or family?? Sometimes I wonder I am doing enough or just not enough for them... sometimes I feel I have failed to give them my best.

When one incident occured, when my best friend stopped talking to me for quite awhile, I began to ponder... what had I done wrong..was it my fault? What should I have done? What actually did I do?? Sometimes I dont know which area that I have offended my friend, that is the problem....

But nevertheless, I humbled myself to apologise to her... I dont really know what had gone wrong...As I prayed over it, something came to my mind... that it never hurts to be humble... just sending a note or a sms that is so convenient nowadays, it can heal up a 'small fracture' in a relationship...

Dont wait too long... if one really treasures the other....

Whatever happens, we can always pray and He is always there....... WE ALWAYS HAVE A FRIEND IN JESUS....

HANDICRAFT is not my cup of tea so I really envy my colleagues who are so creative.... these ornaments are made from beads and crystals, it is not costly... for this look-alike tree here, it is only around RM15 or less... but could be sold in shops for RM30....

So for those who are are creative with their hands, this is a good hobby to make some extra allowances..haha...

Say a Prayer...

The pictures say it all... lets be thankful with what we have now and pray for those who are affected in this tragedy...their lives will never be the same again...
