2 things: Inspired by Jayesslee and United to Bless


I think this is going to be a looooongggg blog, haha... well, there are 2 things that I want to share today. Actually my feeling is quite mix at the moment, happy but at the same time feeling a little bit disappointed and sad.

Yesterday (26 May 2012) I went to Jayesslee concert in Melbourne. If you do not know who Jayesslee is, basically they are twins who inspire me a lot in terms of music and character, so if you want to find out more about them, you can find them in Youtube, cos they are Utuber.. haha (not funny).

Initially I feel bad a little bit becos I couldnot help our church United to Bless' event decoration yesterday cos I went to Jayesslee concert. I was totally feeling not very good about it ( you know how it feels for someone whose love language is acts of service like me, haha). However, I would say that I didnt regret at all going to Jayesslee concert cos I was trully inspired by them.

I was inspired by their ministry. Honestly, the concert was not a churchy co…

Pray, wait and have faith

Pray, wait and have faith has been the theme of my life for this year. I do not realise it at first but slowly through sermons, bible study and my own devotion and quiet time i come to a conclusion that that is what God wants me to learn.When God made his promise to Abraham, since there was no one greater for him to swear by, he swore by himself, saying, "I will surely bless you and give you many descendants." And so after waiting patiently[note this!! Highlight!!], Abraham received what was promised. (Hebrews 6:13-15 NIV)I think we all are quite familiar with this story where Abraham was given a promise by God that he will have descendants. What was my perception before about God is that when God promises sth or when He says sth, i assumed that The thing will happen straight after that, or well.. Maybe a few days later or sth like that, u know... But after reading that verse, God's revelation was revealed. Notice the word Abraham waited patiently. In fact He had to wait…

jumbled up thoughts

sometimes when you are in the midst of dilemma, problems and trials, writing it out maybe the best thing to do, especially there is no one else that can understand how you feel or what you face except you and God. That is exactly how I am feeling right now. I cant even start to explain how my feeling is at the moment, I just know that Im grieving.

I chatted with my auntie yesterday before I went to cell group. A week ago, I promised myself that I will show my care more to my family if I want to share the gospel to them. there has always been a wall between me and them concerning my belief. For them, Christianity is just another religion cos they (my parents and my aunties) dont know God. I have to say that it is abit too late now that I wanna share to them because before I never thought of sharing to them due to language barrier and also my insecurity and fear. All I did was pray. However, as the clock is ticking, I feel that there is no time to waste, I need to do my part, I need to …

The God i know

I would like to share what I have learnt these past few days. I felt that I have grown so much in just such a small time. I shared a little bit with a brother of Christ about my struggles and I gained revelation through the wisdom that God has given to him.

I have had this personal struggle for more than 2 years ( to this point I am still not able to share what it is). The condemnation that I have toward myself is constant and ongoing. I feel that the more I walk with God the more I am condemned. Obviously being a Christian doesnt change me as a person overnight, but what I have been thinking was, once we become a Christian, our behavior, attitude and everything will change to be like Christ. However, I was not seeing any of this in my life. Throughout my years of being a Christian, I fell again and again, up to the point where I doubt whether I have the Holy Spirit in me or even worse whether I have faith in God because when I see other people becomes a Christian, their live changes b…

What is fasting? (part 1)

I recently read a book by Jentezen Franklin called Fasting, and I was amazed that there are so many aspects of fasting that I do not know from the bible. So today I would like to share a little bit about fasting.

We have come across the words "fasting" in the bible frequently. For example : Jesus fasted 40 days in the desert , Daniel fasted 21 days , Esther fasted for 3 days, etc.  Fasting is abstaining from food for a spiritual purpose. I know a lot of people fast in different ways  such as not facebooking for a period of time, not doing this and that, but the ultimate fasting that we know from the bible is the absence of food for a period of time.

There are 3 duties for every Christian: Praying, giving and fasting. When we pray, we release about 30 folds return, and when we prayer and giving are part of life, it releases 60 folds blessing, but when we do all these 3 duties, 100 folds blessing will be released.

Matthew 17: 14 -  22 tells us the story where Jesus healed a d…
