ever stayed up?

This past week,returning from church camp,and not falling sick though sleep was like 5 hours a night. Thank God & thank the vitamin C.
I look back to see how gracious God was as the Vacation Bible School for the children was ran at the church camp, I saw how everybody involved came together to present to the children their better. Better? Cos it was great effort that I saw being put in and with the attitude, we can do even better!

was reminded&embarrassed how I can fall-in on time in the army, at work, at events, but I had seemed to have left that attribute of punctuality back in SG and lateness got the better most of the time if not ALL the time:/

and I saw a very pressing need to live on the power of prayer, dedicating what we do, defending ourselves against spiritual warfare, uplifting fellow brothers and sisters.
Pray powerfully my friends in the name of the Lord!

Was listening to Randy Harris sharing about the ressurection of Lazarus and the series of events that unfolded between Martha/Mary.

25Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; 26and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" 27"Yes, Lord," she told him, "I believe that you are the Christ,the Son of God, who was to come into the world."

and further down....
38Jesus, once more deeply moved, came to the tomb. It was a cave with a stone laid across the entrance. 39"Take away the stone," he said.
"But, Lord," said Martha, the sister of the dead man, "by this time there is a bad odor, for he has been there four days." 40Then Jesus said, "Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?"

for the moment that I said "yes Lord, I believe in you"
how many situations have erupted that really got me compromising that and just keeping the faith to myself. This word 'Faith-ing', got me reminded to live out my faith.
English majors please correct me if i'm wrong, its a verb yea?

ready to be'Faith-ing' for Jesus? Our mighty God, and Father who gives you peace lead you in your week ahead my friends(:

Doing what is right

-My 1st bak chang of the ended dumpling season-

This past week, during Lord supper reflection by Uncle Suen Kwong,
forgetting the bible text for the Sunday:X

It talked about the law and its purpose, and how people reciting the law doing the law, might not last without such a physical commandment imprinted in stone/papayrus.
instead of being told what was right,
the REAL test of whether doing right really applied in your lives will be revealed especially in a family context when the parents are no longer there to be your physical law to direct you.
When the people who upheld accountability for you are not around,
Ready to ever stand strong & uphold the accountability for yourself?

Uncouthly, it means Shut Up, Move On.

But it reminds me of times when I'm brought a problem/challenge...
instead of getting stunned, freeze up, screams flying around in my head,
breathe, pray for GOD to use you or me greatly in the situation.
Cos getting stunned doesn't help, screaming's not really solving the thing except telling everyone you're still stuck, you're kinda going no where.

take a bow- Rihanna

It was used to describe an inner sense of frustration that some people had with issues that arised in church. "but its over now, go on and take a bow"The curtain's closing, show's about to have a closing chapter. The talk was the imminent possibility of the permanent absence of certain people because of how the situations have snowballed.

i'm calling out the need for us to not be higly skilled in the word, in our works. Its just not enough, its like a shortfall of something. In our faith in Jesus , God and the Holy Spirit which was given, serving as a guide in our lives, and the rest of the things will just fall into place thereafter. Cultivating aGod- spirited led being instead of me being the centre of it.
How we respond to others in the right spirit or not?

In my situations, in my experiences...
but "For me and my household, we will serve the Lord"
Let's do that my friends(:
-Praying for HIM to fill each one of us with the right spirit to move in our lives-

This 2 weeks have led me to such a a varied range of emotions.

From laughing at funny antics of band mates, a very cool duty buddy making exquisite Origami, listening to some of the never ending compilation of movie soundtracks he had with the ocassional peek into songs from Chris Tomlin.

Being sad over aunty Cassandra's departures, my spirit beginning to flow with tears as the medium listening to the final sharing that afternoon that resounded in "don't be sad".
To joy for the return of a daughter to God & how she stood courageous as an example for many of us,deciding to not fear her imminent departure but be using the energy left with the relationships that mattered.

The melting of my heart when Wesleigh her daughter dashes towards me to hug at my knee height and the child expressing honest words of love.

The gratitude to God giving us a founding father's Goh Keng Swee whom I could meet when the body laid in Parliament House.

To worshipping with our children at Kaboom resounding in How Great is our God. Indeed He is Great(:
How's God great in your life?

Looking at how the Spirit of God manifest or don't manifest in a person's life is rather scary and a reminder to persevere in cultivating the manifestation of the Holy Spirit in my being for HIS glory.

Another week for HIM to work in your life my friends(:
