What Shall I Ought To Do?

The movie I have been anticipated for has finally arrived and I went to watch it with my friend, Tam...Throughout the whole movie, she was rambling about the farce of the movie, about the hero and his family, why and how they could escape the wrath of the earthquake, the explosions, the tsunami-s and whatever befell upon others, they were not affected at all... in fact, our hero was still wearing his tie throughout of the whole phenomenon. Well, what I was concerned about was not the people acting but the wrath of the earth that may befall upon us one day.. we will never know when... nor we know how it will happen... this movie had one effect on me.. I need to be what God wants me to be... and I need to find out what and how.. prayers ... signs... I have to be more focused...

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

Can I or Can I Not?

Something happened today that made me realize that I Must put God first in everything... no matter how I tried defying, He is there.. I struggled between HIm and my likes.. and I have to admit defeat... Lord, forgive me...

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...

Evangelism, R U Comfortable?

The thought of talking to a non-Christian about God makes me "shake with fear." Why? I really don't know, is it lack of confidence in speaking or lack of knowledge for I believe God in faith, not by theological knowledge. I might end up mumbling incoherently and wish desperately for a safer place.

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."

Conversation Filled With Grace

Add ImageLet us converse with Grace...

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!!

Growing To Be Like Jesus

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

My Pastor Came...

Just came back from cell group meeting. Tonight Pastor came to our meeting for the first time, in the beginning we were quite conscious of him being with us. But praise God, as the discussions started off, most of us felt very at ease and comfortable and started to ask him questions we have never ask any other pastors before. Oh, that was what I felt, actually, but after having him in our group tonight, I look forward to him attending our next meeting again.

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?

Serving Our Lord..

Joshua:24 : 15 says... Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve... But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

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...
