Tolerating no more, I have no other options and the Lord knocked on my head, "Why r u worrying so much when u have Me?"
And as I read this verse in John 1, it says, "Through Him althings were made, without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was lfe and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darks, but the darkness has not understood it."
I was in that darkness, I have not understood it... I kept groping, worrying when God is there all the time in the light and I couldn't see it. Why? Cos I was too engrossed in my own worries, rather than seeing the light, I stayed in the dark....
I prayed fervently... now I can see Him... He showed me this verse... the booklet was lying there and I was prompted to flip over ... I did... I was not in the dark, there is Light now....
He is the LIGHT OF MY LIFE!

But I feel whatever in line, it is supposed to be our own self, our interaction with our Father.. He knows our hearts even before we start praying.. He knows what we want, He is just waiting for us to tell Him directly....
Once, one of my cell group members told me that we do not need to repeat the same topic day in and day out.. like asking for protection, asking once is enough, no need repetition each night.. well, I totally disagree with him... I believe in thanking Him and asking him again and again.. God, will you say I am being "longwinded?"

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives. 2 Pet 3:10-11

I love watching badminton on astro especially Malaysian players are involved.. today I thought I would have a nice time watching them but I didn't even though 2 pairs are playing for Malaysia, I didn't manage to watch them at all... what happened...
Game started at 12pm, I had a facial appointment at 11am, by the time my facial finished, the ladies double also finished playing... ok, fine, then I was thinking there is still men doubles going on. But I had a feeling I won't be able to watch that too..
4pm is my church worship practice, I was thinking surely the men's doubles will be before that.. well, i was wrong.. u believe it or not.. 10 minutes before 4pm, the men's doubles started and that was the time I had to leave for church... I didn't even glimspse the game.. I was very disappointed... I thought of not going to church.. hey, God.. can I not go? Hey, God said, can u not watch?
Yes, finally I didn't get to watch.... I went to church feeling very moody and disappointed.. OK, God, I go, I go.... please let my heart be happy again...
At church when practice started, I was still feeling down, still thinking of the game.. but once the songs were played, the wordings made me forget about the game... Hey, here I am, worshiping You, Lord... make me feel You....
Right... in no time, my disappointment vanished... at 5.20pm it ended and I left for home....
Ran through the Internet, yes, the Malaysian boys won the semi finals and tomorrow I will be watching them on TV for the finals... Can I, Lord?
I tell you tomorrow...

As I read this article, it says here "lets be honest, evangelism is tough for 99 percent of Christians, it can seem impossible! We can take the stress out of evangelism when we understand whatGod expects of us. He doesn't ask us to do something that's too difficult for us. Paul was teh master of evangelism, so let's learn from him. It's not easy, but it's not impossible."

Words are powerful! They can cut deep and leave scars that will last a lifetime. Careless jabs can hurt een more than intentional attacks. Our world needs conversations filled with grace. Rather than practicing one-upmanship, offer a compliment. Instead of correcting every little mistake, offer grace and let teh mistake pass without correcting it. Consider dropping sarcasm in favor of encouragement. Anyone who offers grace is a breath of fresh air in the world!!

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too that God may open a door for our message so that we mayproclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders, make the most of every opportunity.
Let our conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt so that you may know how to answer everyone. Colossians 4: 2-6

I posted a question to him tonight for this has been in my mind. I asked, "if i were to drop dead tonight, pastor, where would I "land?" Everyone was quiet, he looked at me... for a moment.. then he answered, "U will be in heaven." Wow.. that was a very reassuring answer and I love it! Then he continued on explaining that our souls/spirits will ascend up to heaven and WHEN Jesus comes again, our Bodies will be resurrected as well. But until then, first our souls... But if Jesus comes when we are still alive, then we will be resurrected in "one piece." Isn't that Great?

In our lives, we often make our own choices instead of talking over to our Lord, we tend to decide there and then on important issues. I for one, do that all the time. I do things too fast at times, never really sitting down to ponder over, there and then, I do it and it brings negative feedbacks at times. I am trying to slow down before "jumping the gun" , I am learning how to and will do. Drastic actions will bring about consequences which might not please us... so why not sit back and talk to Him before we decide? As the Bible says, as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.. serving the Lord means letting Him have a hand above all things...

10 honest tips about myself.. i have to crack my head a bit... lol...
1) I love to blog immensely, sitting for hours and neglecting some housework.
2) I love to eat, but I dont eat much, that is the problem, I love to nib here and there, a bad habit.
3) I don't like to wait for others nor allow others to wait for me, if I can help it.
4) I worry unnecessarily at times which is not a good habit too.
5) I like to blog for money but I will end up stressing if I cannot finish them in time
6) I am a lazy lady, don't like housework nor exercising at all
7) I have 3 kids which I adore immensely...
8) I am lazy to go for cell group meetings
9) I like to watch tv till wee hours in the morning
10) I want to have more money to take my kids for a wonderful time overseas..
oh, are these honest tips about myself...doesnt sound too right, do they?
The above words were taken from my Daily Bread, excerpts which has a deep meaning in our lives. How much God love us, How deep, How wide.... His love for us is so deep that He sends His one and only Son, Jesus, to die for us on the Cross, to save us from our sins and granting us eternity through His death on the Cross... That is Father's Greatest Love!
While I was watching a program in Discovery Channel last week, it depicted about a country's aim to build 300 islands around the nation, the sand from the seabase was tragedically dug to achieve this man's dream. Billions of tonnes sand were dug from the seabase... creating man's dream to have the islands, to beautify his country, so to speak... it makes me sad....
Creation is by God, not by man.... perhaps those tragedies happened were the consequences of man's own greed of power over the world!
God is great... God is loving.... God is good all the time... He is my stronghold in life on earth and through eternity! Thanks and praise unto God...

Without watchfulness, deception will win. Your prayers help guard your heart and mind against the deceptions of the world. Without thankfulness, prayers re worthless. The Heart of Worship to God is expressed with acknowledgment that "God is good" and the humble response of "thanks."
Paul also instructs the church to pray not only for themselves but also to pray for other believers, specifically for open doors of opportunity and the clear presentation of the gospel. If Paul needed prayer, then so do we!

The LORD’S PRAYER on Sept. 11, 2001
Todd Beamer’s Faith (Sept. 11, 2001)
"I don't think we're going to get out of this thing. I'm going to have to go out on faith."
It was the voice of Let's roll" as he led the charge against the terrorists who had hijacked United Flight 93, the one, you will remember, that crashed in the Pennsylvania countryside., the passenger-and Wheaton College graduate-who said "
The whole world knows how brave Beamer and his fellow passengers were on September 11. But this week we learned more fully what buttressed that bravery: Faith in Jesus Christ. Todd died as he lived, a faithful evangelical believer.
In an article titled "The Real Story of Flight 93," Newsweek reveals gripping new details from the actual transcripts of the now-recovered cockpit voice recorder. "Todd had been afraid," Newsweek relates. "More than once, he cried out for his Savior."
After passengers were herded to the back of the jet, Beamer called the GTE Customer Center in Oakbrook , Illinois . He told supervisor Lisa Jefferson about the hijacking. The passengers were planning to jump the terrorists, he said. And then he asked her to pray with him.
As Newsweek relates, "Todd Beamer kept a Lord's Prayer bookmark in his Tom Clancy novel, but he didn't need any prompting. He began to recite the ancient litany, and Jefferson joined him: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name."
As they finished, Beamer added, "Jesus, help me." And then, Beamer and his fellow passengers prayed a prayer that has comforted millions down through the centuries-the prayer that David wrote in a time of great anguish: The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want . . . Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.
And then the famous last words: "Are you guys ready? Let's roll." We now know from the cockpit voice recorder that Beamer and other passengers wrestled with the hijackers and forced the plane to crash into the ground, killing themselves but foiling what was believed to have been the hijackers' plan to fly Flight 93 into the Capitol or the White House.
As Christians, we know that God can bring good out of evil. In Todd Beamer, the world witnesses a faith that held up in the extremity of fear. A faith that is even now, comforting his widow and two young sons.
Todd’s wife, Lisa Beamer, told NBC's Dateline, "You know, in the Lord's Prayer, it asks us to forgive our trespassers as we forgive those who trespass against us." As Todd prayed this prayer in the last moments of his life, in a way, Lisa said, "He was forgiving those people for what they were doing, the most horrible thing you could ever do to someone."
It wasn't Todd Beamer's job to fight terrorists. He was just a passenger who along with several others did what he didn't have to do but foiled a terrible evil that might have been done to his country.
As Flight 93 hurtled towards destruction, Todd Beamer could not have known that his quiet prayers would ultimately be heard by millions--that the story of his last acts on earth would be a witness to the Lord he loved and served and a lasting example of true heroism.
Todd Beamer's Call from United 93 Changed My Life Forever
Hello, my name is Mrs. Jefferson," I spoke calmly into the headset. "I understand your plane is being hijacked?"
I couldn't believe I was asking this question during what had started as a typical day on the job as a Verizon Airfone supervisor. Around 8:45 a.m. on September 11, 2001, I walked to the Call Center , where a representative stopped me, clearly traumatized. Apparently the caller on her headset had told her he was on United Airlines Flight 93 bound for San Francisco from Newark , NJ —and that their plane had been hijacked.
"I'll finish the call," I told her after I contacted the Airfone Operations Surveillance Center (AOSC) to inform officials a plane had been hijacked. Then I put on her headset.
Terror in the Air
"Can you tell me exactly what's taking place?" I asked the caller.
"Three people have hijacked the plane," he calmly replied. "Two have taken over the cockpit and are flying the plane."
At our office, I overheard someone say, "These are suicide attempts; they're intentionally taking those planes down!" Then I learned two planes had crashed into the World Trade Center Towers .
Fear rose in me. I prayed silently, not knowing what to ask God as I realized this hijacking was linked to the New York tragedy.
"I've notified all appropriate authorities," I told the caller, and finally asked his name.
"I'm Todd Beamer from Cranbury , New Jersey ," he said. As we exchanged small talk, the plane began flying erratically. Todd raised his voice, then I heard raw panic: "Oh my God, we're going down! Jesus help us!"
Spiritually, I remained calm; I knew God was with me and with Todd. But physically, I felt ill and powerless; I wanted to do more to help. I prayed silently as I heard profoundly disturbing sounds coming from the plane's cabin. I finally realized they were the bloodcurdling screams of the passengers aboard Flight 93 crying out for their lives. I'll carry those sounds to my grave.
When things calmed down, Todd returned to the phone. "I think we're OK now," he said. Then he asked me to say the Lord's Prayer with him.
"If I don't make it through this, would you tell my wife and family how much I love them?" Todd asked.
"Of course I'll do that for you, Todd," I replied, and offered to patch her through on another line.
"No," he replied. "She's expecting our third child in January, and I'd rather not upset her with any bad news."
Suddenly Todd blurted, "Oh my God, we're turning around!"
After some confusion, I told him, "I'm still here, Todd, and I'll be on this phone as long as you are."
After another silence, he said, "A few of us are going to jump the guy with the bomb." At this point, we both hoped the plane could land without incident.
I held the phone line open approximately 15 more minutes. I constantly called Todd's name, but there was no response. Then came the news: United Flight 93 had crashed in Pennsylvania . I felt unable to breathe. I knew that the brave man on the other side of the phone had perished.
My husband, Warren, and I work in the same building. He'd been glued to the television in his third-floor office, unaware of my phone conversation. I was removing my headset when he arrived at my side. Tears welled in my eyes; I walked zombie-like into my office. Warren stayed with me, giving me silent support.
Soon after, FBI agents called. They asked scores of questions, and told me they were grateful for my vivid recollections. My husband and I went home from work early.
I knew Psalm 126:5, "They who sow in tears shall reap in joy and singing," but right then I couldn't imagine anything good coming from the suffering of the family members of those who perished aboard United 93.
I didn't go to work the next few days. I was bedridden, escaping my pain through sleep. When I wasn't sleeping, I couldn't stop crying. I was afraid of the phone, afraid of the doorbell ringing, afraid of Warren leaving the house.
An FBI agent, a U.S. attorney, and a representative from the New York Terrorist Task Force interviewed me at a local police station. They told me I'd eventually be called on to testify in the Zacarias Moussaoui trial. Talking to the authorities about homeland security issues was frightening in itself, but they were also concerned about our security in the fearful climate following 9-11. They advised us to install an alarm system, which we did.
Talking with Lisa Beamer (Todd’s widow)
A couple days after September 11, I wrote a letter informing Lisa Beamer I had a message for her from her husband. We faxed it to the United Airlines grief counselors working with her.
The next day, she called. "I understand you spoke to my husband?" she asked timidly, obviously crying.
I recounted the entire conversation. It had been four days since the tragedy. Talking about it was difficult but cathartic for us both.
I could hear her crying, and I wondered how I'd feel if I were bearing her pain. As we talked, I discovered Lisa's a Christian. I know without question God ordered our connection. I couldn't possibly console Lisa Beamer with anything other than hope from God's Word. Thankfully, because she's a believer, she was able to receive God's comfort.
"Thank you for being there for Todd. You're a pillar of strength," she said.
At Lisa's request, I spoke with a newspaper reporter from Pennsylvania . After that article ran, I received calls from reporters all over the world.
I returned to work after several weeks, but life was far from normal. Seeing me in tears all the time, my husband and supervisors suggested I get some help. I went to therapy for six months. I grieved Todd Beamer's loss as if I were a family member. I was stressed about the media attention and the prospect of testifying at the Moussaoui trial. I hadn't asked for any of this!
In conjunction with my therapy sessions, my pastor also counseled me. We prayed together, and our church rallied around me. I slowly began to understand God used me in the midst of this tragedy. I came to see the strength I exhibited on the phone with Todd came from God, that he'd placed me in the Beamers' lives for such a time as this.
Though I was nervous at first to speak with reporters, with each subsequent interview I became bolder. I told journalists about my faith in God, how I believe he scheduled my "appointment" with Todd.
In October, producers from the Oprah Winfrey Show asked Lisa and me if we'd consent to a live television interview. So the two Lisas finally met face to face. We embraced and cried, neither of us able to speak.
When I went through counseling with my pastor, I was moved when he said God is more concerned about our availability than our ability. He grants us skills and talents, but mostly he wants us to say, "Lord, here I am—ready!"
Through my availability on September 11, 2001, God transformed me. He showed me that if he has work for you to do, he'll equip you to carry it out. He used me to speak peace and comfort to Todd, even as he approached the end of his young life.
But beyond that, I saw God fulfill his promise: When we believe in him, he'll be with us to the very end—even in death. From my conversations with Todd that day, I believe God kept that promise to Todd. I know when my time comes, he'll keep that promise for me, too.
Lisa and I still try to keep in touch. She's busy raising her three babies, and I'm busy traveling around the country speaking about serving God and recognizing our significance—even as "ordinary" men and women.
God can use us in myriad ways—when we lift someone at her wit's end, when we feed those who are hungry, and sometimes, when we simply show up for work and let God encourage someone through our words and availability.

Everlasting love from God is shown by Him by sacrficing His own Son, Jesus Christ to die for us. He has been crucified on the cross while we were yet sinners.
Crown of thorns - free our mind from fears, guilt, stress, depression and anxieties.
Nailed pierced hands - Peace Be With us
Nail On Feet - free us from diseases, rejection, condemnation, death...
Blood and water - represents our hearts be filled with joy when His heart is pierced on our behalf.
The church is the bride, spotless, clean and pure. We have to live up to Christ, He has given us His everlasting love and passion for all mankind.
For Christians, believing is seeing God, to feel Him, to know that He is alwasy near us. When we believe, we know for sure God is for us, in us and with us all the time. We must have faith in Him, trust and belonging becomes more intensified. He is alive in us, in ou rthoughts, in our minds, in our daily walks.....
He takes care of us whatever happens, He will never leave nor forsake us....
God is magnificent, always and ever glorious in our lives...

Though his sermon was a bit longer than usual, we had a good time listening to God's words in the book of Revelations. He said we are the key...the key to salvation, we hold the key for others who have yet to know Christ... so why don't we use the key to open doors to people?
Somewhere in between, he said he likes Nokia... told us to buy nokia phones, dont use other brands...hahhaa.... we were wondering why...then he said the theme for Nokia is......
So we people of God, we should start with connecting people, using our Key to Salvation!

This morning she gave a good testimony of our Lord, she has been in distress lately over her family problems. Her tears and anguish continued for many months until lately, she turned her life to our Lord Jesus for His comfort. Now whenever she feels sad or deeply troubled, she quickly called upon our Lord for His strength, she talks to Him, how He must have felt when He was betrayed and she humbly asked before Him for His annointing of perseverance upon her as well. Then she added that, immediately after her prayer, she felt very much at peace again....
Jesus will continue to be in her life... she needs Him so much... that sets me thinking... yes, I do need Him as well.. Jesus is our stronghold and our comforter..

A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday.. "I've gone for 30 years now," he wrote, "and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all."
This started a real controversy in the "Letters to the Editor" column, much to the delight of the editor. It went
on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:
"I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals.. But I do know this ... They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!" When you are DOWN to nothing.... God is UP to something!

Thank God for my eldest brother who told us that we must not think negatively of what had happened. He reminded us to continue entrusting ourselves to our Lord Jesus. In this time of sadness, we must trust in Him, let not the news affect us in any way, didn't we always sing, Trust and Obey? We got to think positively as not to allow any leeway for the devil to seep into our minds and distracting us from our Lord... All we need to do is to pray and allow our Lord to intervene and have His way. Our lives on earth are just temporary... lets build our treasures in heaven!
Friday, August 7, 2009
When we are befallen, when we are "attacked" spiritually, with sickness or with sad news, we should not give up hope. For example, if we are stricken with a deadly virus, we should not worry ourselves to to near disaster. Don't leave any leeway for the devil aka satan to come into our minds, sometimes we are not aware that we do that. We might tend to worry ourselves, thinking how long we have to live, medicine that might not work, no one to talk to, feeling lonely and alone, all the negative thoughts will come into our mind and make us give up very fast.
Do not feel that way... we must take trials as a testing of our faith to develop perseverance. When we are attacked, think of Lord Jesus, how He suffered on the cross and how He has sacrificed His life for us. We are in the fallen world but do remember we have our Lord with us.. so whatever happens, let us not think negative... THINK OF HIS GOODNESS!

1. Ever favorite nursery rhyme: Oh My Darling, Oh My Darling, Oh My Darling, Clementine..
2. Pet name: Labby & Jingle Bell
3. Favorite treat: Pringles
4. Milk in your bottle/Sippy cup you miss most: None that I can think of
5. Favorite TV show: Chinese series
6. Place you love your parents take you the most: Cinemas (long long time ago)
7. Adult thing you used to mimick: @#$%^&!!% (just joking)
8. Most embarrassing to recall: Forgot to zip up skirt
9. Game with a sib you reminisce most: One Legged (tan kwok)
10. Most unforgettable candy you used to take: coconut candy (I love them till now!)
We can call this “chain blog” and I am here tagging few friends who might enjoy passing this along. Just copy and edit in accordance to your corresponding personal experience and preference. Hope you tag me along in your post. Have fun remembering your not so distant past.

Because he loves me, I will rescue him
I will protect him for he acknowledges my name
He will call upon Me and I will answer him
I will be with him in trouble
I will deliver him and honor him
With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation...
These wonderful verses are a consolation to us, a great reassurance that God has given us. He will rescue, takes care of us in times of trouble. He is always there for us for we acknowledges that He is our Father, our Lord in our lives. He wil lansser our prayers whether it be good or bad. He is always there for us. His deliverance and honor is truly gracious. Above all these, we are blessed with long life, eternity, everlasting life.
What a Great God We Have!

He was also telling us about a true life story, half way through his tears fell... It is about...
A girl named Hilda, who was sold to a child prostitution syndicate by her mum at the age of 4. She was into all kinds of acts at that age and by the time she reached her teens, she has become a mother to 2 kids. She love them very much but her own mother took them away, calling her that she is unfit to be their mother because she is a scum, filthy and dirty. Because of that reason, she worked doubly hard to earn money, she serviced 100 men per day to save money.
One day she was beaten by one of her clients and she had very serious injuries. She wanted to commit suicide in the hospital but before she did, she cried out to God.... and she saw a vision... it said "Rehad". With the help of the nurse, she managed to call to this "Rehad" which is a home for distress ladies. She was finally at peace with her life after that she stay in that home...
I may have left out something here but the main point of this story is not about her... it is about our Prayers.... we need to Pray.... not just pray about ourselves, pray for our friends, our church, our nation.... They need our prayers as well.... and most of all, God Answers.....

Whatever the ingredients of Christian experience and in whatever proportions they are mixed together, joy is one of them.
Love is patient - patience
Love is kind - kindness
Love does not envy- goodness
Love does not boast and is not proud - gentleness
Love is not self-seeking and is not easily angered - self control and peace
Love rejoices with the truth - joy
Love always protects, always hopes, always perseveres - faithfulness
Once we have love, we have all the fruit of the Spirit. Without it, we are nothing.

"Deuteronomy 6:6...These commands that I give you today are to be upon your hearts"
When we memorize God's words, we make it applicable in our lives ... each day, we will not fear having to wonder "what to do or what should be done" .. God's words live in us, our hearts and minds focused on Him... when situation arises, we will know how to apply it to our lives and what to say to others.... this is the word of the Lord in us....

So satan did all he could on Job, making his life miserable and sickness befell on Job that he complained bitterly to his friends, even his wife asked him to defy God... But throughtout his ordeal, Job never did defy God, he only asked why...why... but he didnt turn away from Him.
In the book of Job, it teaches us no matter how much we are inflicted with troubles and sickness, never never deny God.. only through troubles, He will make us strong and we just have to trust in Him only.... This is our God....

When we face a similar situation, let us ponder for awhile, "What would Jesus do?" And then we will know where to look for the answer, that is Jesus habits.
(some words are excerpts from the book)
If we want to develop a character like Jesus, we have to look carefully at His habits.

We must love each other and also those people who hated us because our love for each other proves that we have gone from death to life. But if you don't love one another, you are still under the power of death. If we hate each other, we are considered sinful and we won't have eternal life.
When we love each other, we know that we belong to the truth and fell at ease in the presence of God. God is greater than our feelings and He knows everything. He will give us whatever we ask because we obey Him and do what pleases Him. If we obey His commandments, He will stay with us and we in Him.

Last week, when she got into my car, she sighed... "mum, on friday I have to lead in christian fellowship.... what bible verse shall I do?" oh oh... I told her, look into the gospel books, Matthew, John, Luke, Acts...there are so many parables there... just choose one and elaborate on it. Well, talking is easy, right?
During the night, we sat down together on the bed and discussed about it and finally we settled upon 1 Corinthians 13:4
Love is kind and patient, never jealous, boastful, proud or rude...
Love isn't selfish or quick tempered
It doesn't keep a record of wrongs that others do...
Love recuices in the truth but not in evil..
Love is always supportive, loyal, hopeful and trust...
LOVE NEVER FAILS...

If God's love for us was based on our performance to the standards that His righteousness requires, then we would never have another moment free from anxiety. We need to know that we have all the love there is through Jesus. That is most powerful.... Once we believe that we are perfectly, unconditionally loved, we wont get misled by earthly things.

If God is the object of our worship, the source of our security and self-worth, and our only audience and authority, false pride and fear are replaced by humility and God-grounded confidence as well. This is a very true fact. Hope we can abide to this.....
Don't do your acts of worship for people. Instead, Jesus said acts of worship are to be done in secret for Him to see rather than made a public show.
Matthew 23:5-7 "Everything they do is for men to see....they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues, they love to be greeted in the marketplaces and to have men call them "Rabbi."

How many of us read these words and say, "Not me, not me. I don't have false pride. I know that everything comes from God and is on loan to me." But often there is a more subtle way in which we Edge God Out - that is... FEAR!
God's word assures the believe that all pain is a process with a purpose. In fact, God guarantees thast the purpose will have a good outcome. Romans 8:28-29 says ...
And we know that in all things God workks for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. For those God foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of His Son that He might be the firstborn among many brothers...
The guarantee of Romans mentioned above contains three truths that fortify us in difficulty.
Great thanks to Him for giving me a car to drive, an office to go to, friends to meet up with, food that is provided...
Give thanks to Him for His protection upon my love ones, my family and my friends as well...
Praise Ye O God, for All That You Done for us....

When all kinds of trials and temptations crowd into your lives, don't resent them as intruders but welcome them as friends! (oh gosh..) Realize that they come to test your faith and to produce in you the quality of endurance. (that is pretty logic) But let the process go on until that endurance is fully developed and you will find you have become men of mature character with the right sort of independence.
And if, in the process, any of you does not know how to meet any particular problem, he has only to ask God who gives generously to all men without making them feel foolish or guilty and he may be quite sure that the necessary wisdom will be given him.

Leading like Jesus involves the alignment of four leadership domains: heart, head, hands and habits. The internal domains-the motivations of your heart and the leadership perspectives of your head are things you keep inside or even disguise if it suits your purpose. The external domains, that is your public leadership behavior, or hands and your habits as experienced by others will determine whether people will follow you.
When your heart, head, hands and habits are aligned, extraordinary levels of loyalty, turst, and productivity will result. When thre areas are out of alighnment, frustration, mistrust, and diminished long term productivity will result.
Jesus's leadership point of view proclaimed that leadership was first an act of service. He spent three years teaching His leadership point of view to His disciples. When He washed the feet of the disciples and sent them out as His ambassadors, was He commissioning them to do anything the people wanted?
Of course, the answer is No... Jesus was completely focused on pleasing His Father as His audience of One. That meant proclaiming the gospel and bringing salvation to mankind!

1. Choose a verse that speaks to your need or that the Lord points out to you. (meaning that particular verse is looking back at you)
2. Understand the verse. Read it in context and in diffrent translations.
3. Develop some memory aids to help you remember the verse...eg. record it on a MP3 or CD.
4. Locate and underline the verse in your Bible so that you can visualize it on the page.
5. White the verse on a notecard or put it in your electronic organizer.
7. Place the verse in prominent places, kitchen sink, bathroom mirror, on your desk, dashboard of your car (for me, stick it on to my pc)
8. Meditate on the verse, savoring each word. Say it over and over again.
Well, of all the verses, I will choose number 7. How about u?
When the doctor told Phyllis that her husband had passed away, somewhere in her head, Phyllis heard teh words of 2 Corinthians 5:8 "Absent from the body.... present with the Lord," which assured her that her husband was in teh presence of Jesus. Then she heard Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heard and lean not on your own understanding, in all ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight." And she was comforted by the words of Psalm 34:18: "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted."
These words will be an encouragement and comfort for those who are in grief and who seeks solace from our Lord....
As a philosophy of leadership, servant leadership may be considered one option among many otehrs, but as a theology of leadership, it is a mandate for all who call Jesus as Lord....

Normally how do you pray? The question was asked... and according to this writer, he said the easiest is to follow the ACTS....
A C T S
A is acknowledging God, praising him....
C is confessing our sins ....
T is thanksgiving, thanking God for His many blessings, our families, our love ones, our friends, our provisions, so on and so forth... endless...
then S is for supplication... what we need to tell Him, asking for His mercy and Grace for our needs.....
So nowadays, ACTS is what I do.....

Our lives are always filled with challenges and if we peer too far ahead of today, we might end up climbing "Mount Everest." They can appear impossible to handle if we think we have to be ready for the hill.
The Bible reminds us that today is all we need to tackle. We don't need to worry about tomorrow's tasks. Every hill in life is too high if we think we must climb it all at once. But no hill is insurmountable if we take it one step forward at a time - with God's help!

Worship means to bow down or to serve. Worship is an act of reverence and has the root idea of trembling or fear-that is in awe of God....

This method was told by a Police friend who had experienced and confirmed it. It is useful...even driving at night.
Most of the motorists would turn on HIGH or FASTEST SPEED of the wipers during heavy downpour, yet find the visibility in front of the windscreen is still bad.
In the event you face such a situation, just try your SUN GLASSES (any model will do), and see the miracle for yourself! All of a sudden, your visibility in front of your windscreen is perfectly clear, as if there is no rain.
Make sure you always have a pair of SUN GLASSES in your car, as you are not only helping yourself to drive safely with good vision, but also might save your friend's life by giving him this idea..
'To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did..' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better.
'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'

Have u read the little book of Ruth in the Old Testament yet? Well, if u had, were u tempted to sneak a peak to ssee how the story ends? If you did, you were probably disappointed. The final verses of Ruth Chapter 4-the climax of the whole story seem anything but climatic. What we find there is a genealogy only.... but as the chapter of Ruth continues, you will find the ending turn into something we need to know... ie. patience.
Be patient in our walk with God and He will surely show us the way He has predestined us....

How to see God in the Dailiness of Life...
Do you enjoy reading? It is my greatest joy and sometimes my besetting sin. I can lose myself in a good book when I should be doing other things. Most of us who enjoy reading know that a good story can take us out of the humdrum sameness of our lives and transport us into the tension and drama of someone else's experience.
Yes, I agree with this author. When I start reading a book, it is like twilight zone. I imagine the scenerio in the book, how I feel as the hero or heroine...it makes the book so real that I feel I am engrossed into it.....
(to be continued....)
Today is his first day at work....give thanks to our Lord God once again for His grace upon us ... for allowing AA to settle down smoothly and I pray that His protection will be upon him each day....

We, (my kids and I) are very thankful to our Lord for giving Andy the scholarship we have been praying for...
It was indeed a big surprise that he could get it....
I believe that it is the works of our Lord Jesus who made this possible and thanks to his college too...
Now I pray that Andy will continue to do well in his course lessons and make the sponsor proud too...

Pastor Jeyakumar always encourage us to say our Daily Prayer....
Our Father In Heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
Forgive us our debts as we forgive us our debtors
Do not lead us into tempation
But deliver us from evil
For thine is the Kingdom and the Power and Glory
