Faith

Hebrews 11: 8-9
By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.9By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country; he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise.10For he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder is God


Hebrews 11: 13-16
All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth. 14People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. 15If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. 16Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a c…

My Dream ^^

I have been thinking a lot lately. Heaps of things went into my mind, starting from relationship, future, passion and my dream. I have come into few conclusions :

1. life isnt all about relationship. It's not only about finding a partner, get married, bear children, old and died. It's got more than that.
2. I have planned what to do for my future (and i hope it's in accordance with God's plan). They are :
- I will work monday to friday, after I finish my work I will go to dance classes, and do home chores.
-Saturday will be a time for me to volunteer. I want to do any kind of volunteering, starting from taking care of old people, teaching refugees or even planting trees.
-if i get the chance, when Im taking my yearly holiday , I want to join missionaries, reaching for the unfortunate people or unreached people. =)
- Sunday, I will give myself a break, probably go out with church friends and catch up with friends.
3. In the future, i would like to open an orphanage, sch…

what faith can do

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7elxC8LXfzE&feature=fvw

Everybody falls sometimes
You gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes and make a new beginning
Anyone can feel the ache
You think its more than you can take
But youre stronger, stronger than you know

And dont you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver lining

Ive seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesnt ever end
Even when the sky is falling
Ive seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
Thats what faith can do

It doesnt matter what youve heard
Impossible is not a word
Its just a reason for someone not to try
Everybodys scared to death
You may decide to take that step
Out on the water
But itll be all right

Life is so much more
Than what your eyes are seeing
You will find your way
If you keep believing

Overcome the odds
When you dont have a chance
(Thats what faith can do)
When the world says you cant
It will tell you that …

just as the title says, R.A.N.D.O.M, this is what im gonna share, lol cos i just feel like filling up my diary with Mr.Christ. So... anyway,while I was about to have my shower, a thought suddenly came into my mind, which is I should appreciate every single person that appears in my life. when I say every single person, I mean it. When I think about it again, God thinks when He plans, and He plans for us, and His plan is the best, and the people in our life have already been planned as well, which means that they appear in our life for our good, no matter what our circumstances is. Whether maybe some of them hurt us or maybe they are just by-passers. When I think about this, I just realise, how stupid I am to sometimes dislike people, even worse, the people that I dislike are my brothers and sisters in Christ, shouldnt I be grateful that I happen to meet them in this life? A storm will eventually recede, same as our problems, so why sometimes we are so dumb or fool that we put our prob…

Seventy times seven

Hi guys, I just updated my blog yesterday and yet today I create a new post again. You must have been thinking that I dont have anything to do at the moment. In fact, I have heaps of tasks to finish up. But I need to update my blog because it is just awesome to see how God shapes my life.


So here we go : this afternoon, I had a "big fight" with my church members, oh well, cant say if it's a fight but just arguments. But what made me so disappointed is that , the church members that I had an argument with were the people from my cell group, my DEAR CELL GROUP and they are people that I really treat as my family. So.. we had an argument about fundraising, I was giving my idea about what we can do, and even the idea that I gave was from another big church. guess what, they rejected it without even thinking about it. If they rejected it in a polite manner, I wouldnt mind, but this is so different. Even then, what makes me even more angry is when other people gave their opini…

Learning to have self-control

I learn this topic "A choice not to do it" during my devotional time this morning, and I find that it is really important, especially for me, to have self-control.

J.Oswald Sanders said  :" It has been well said that the future is with the disciplined, and that quality has been placed first in our list, for without it the other gifts, however great, will never reach their maximum potential. Only the disciplined person will rise to his highest powers. He is able to lead because he has conquered himself".

Galatians 5 :22 -23 says " the fruit of the Spirit is ... self-control"

It mentioned about the fruit of the spirit : love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness and gentleness. we can love, we can feel joy and peace, but God's self- control helps us to live like that. this also applies to the other fruits of the spirit that are mentioned above.

I often forget about this topic, self-control, and when I read this devotional, I just reali…

A woman who is walking with God by His Spirit

She follows through... on whatever she has to do
She comes through... no matter what
She delivers the goods... whether a returned item or a school paper
She shows up... even early so others wont worry
She keeps her word... her yes means yes and her no means no (James 5:12)
She keeps her commitments and appointments... you wont find her canceling
She successfully transacts business... carrying out any instructions given to her
She is regular at church... and doesnt neglect worship
She is devoted to duty... just as Jesus was when He came to do His Father's will (John 4:34)

I want to learn to be the woman mentioned above =)

A total surrender

I am extremely sad at the moment, so sad. I just received my mid term test result for one of my subjects and I failed it and it's 35%. I feel so dumb, I feel so hopeless and disappointed in myself. I cant even think properly, whether it's me who didnt study enough or some other reason. Whatever reason it is, Im just sad, I cant believe I could fail my test. I failed once earlier on 1 of my music reports, and now this. Gosh.. It's draining me.. Im emotionally drained. I feel that I disappoint my parents so much, they must have put so much hope on me and yet I disappoint them in this way. I feel so ashamed.

God, I surrender to You, Lord. Help me to believe that everything happens for the good. Help me to see what's Your plan ahead of me cos im starting to feel tired. Im starting to feel helpless. I need to drink from the water of life that You can give, Father. Help me to depend on You and work harder on my assignments.

I am blessed =))))

I keep smiling today!! I feel I am so blessed. Okay, i know i know, u want to know what makes me feel blessed. Here it is :

I woke up in the middle of the night at 4 am today. Usually I can straight away get back to sleep but I dont know why this time I couldnt. I was worried cos I slept at 11+ and I had to wake up at 5.30 to prepare for work, and if I didnot have enough sleep, I could turn into a zombie in my workplace (well, not literally).
So then I was even more shocked when I read my friend's bbm for me telling me that the concert report mark is up. She failed, my heart pumped so fast cos both of us failed on the previous assgnment, and in order to pass this subject, we need to get average mark for 3 reports. then I quickly browsed open my portal to check my result. Guess what, God blessed me so much , He gave me 73% while last time I only got 49%. I feel so guilty, cos I just realise how I sometimes take God for granted. I thank Him so badly and I just cant stop thanking Him…
