Prayer warriors are you there?

A note from Cailin...
please keep the student at University of Texas in prayer, where Uncle Richard's sons are at, supposedly gunmen are in their compound at the moment:S

Hearing my parents really concerned for their nephew & family, while I do my part as cousin.
Please be praying for my cousin brother Joseph seem to undergoing quite a challenging phase right now, having baptised and dedicated himself to God's Lordship, has objections from his father.
The disagreements are starting to spew out of control revolving around this disagreement,
peace and calm parties to resolve it amicably.

In the storm, to look to YOU....

The B.I.G-ness

-in the middle of falling rain-

I suddenly had an urge to do a google search on the
Government of Singapore Investment Corporation(GIC),
then went over to Temasek Holdings
just to see what's it like on taking place through their webpages.
Wow, the big-ness of the names I see on each page with full credentials,
internalising why they are hired to be there,
and the amounts each organisation handles each year.

Thought the current organisation that I'm working with was quite big - this was BIGGER
made me feel small, really tiny for such a big man, literally.

It reminded me of the smallness picturing lightning& blasting thunder I heared on a few ocassions in rainy storms, with 1 just happening last wednesday.
Perhaps the call for global warming is ever louder, and the anger filled in the storm.
Watching the flashes & deafening sounds of the thunder,
the power contained in each bolt that will not hesitate to strike a sinful man like me.

I am gonna begin a journey of teaching our young ones, mulling over my decisions between Early Childhood or the Primary track.
Or decisions over in my life as come to know of good/not so good news.
Asking myself the very real question,
"what do you want to do?"

and Higher, "Lord where do you want to place me?"

To witness his Big-ness from my BIG man, was just humbling.
I have to come before Him, to lay at HIS feet.

Do you want too?

Pardon for the poor chinese.
It should mean in every household, each has their own difficulties.
I'm observing it in most families that I come across,
the tinge of 'dysfunctional'/imperfection that makes this family unit characteristically unique,knitted&perfected in some way.

like how we are put under the umbrella of God our heavenly Father embracing us
& remembering Jesus as our Saviour & seeking direction from the Holy Spirit.

In imperfection, I seek HIS hand to strengthen us(:

The Lord gives and takes away,but my heart will choose to
Blessed be the name of the Lord..

Perhaps I was singing it at different occurances of the today&yesterday,
the line from one of the vacation Bible school(VBS) songs this year,
its flowed back in my mind earlier.

"Today is the day, you have made, I will rejoice and be glad in it
and I won't worry about tomrrow, I'm trusting in what you say,
Today is the day."

Indeed Lord's promises as we gaze upon Him.
gonna take a lots of faith-ing this week to declare that instead of just a comforting sounding song.

Have a blessed week with the Lord my friends(:

My call today

Psalms 138

1 I will give thanks with all my heart;
I will sing praises to you before the gods.
2 I will bow down toward your holy temple
And give thanks to Your name for Your lovingkindness and
Your truth;
For You have magnifies Your word according to all Your name.
3 On the day I called, You answered me; You made bold with strength in my soul.
4 All the kings of the earth wil give thanks to You, O Lord, When they have heared the words of Your mouth.
5 And they will sing of the ways of the Lord, For great is the glory of the Lord.
6 For though the lord is exalted, Yet He regards the Lowly, But the haughty He knows from afar.
7 Though I walk in te midst of trouble, You will revive me;
You will strectch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me.
8 The lord will accomplish what concerns me;
Your lovingkindness, O Lord, is everlasting;
Do not forsake the works of Your hands.

Mum & Dad

Perhaps its the time of age that adults reaching their 50s get a little grouchy,
or its just that the events happening are taking a toll on their inner spiritual composure
and adding to it an extremely irritating son like me,
who tends to be rash talking to them, asking whys whys and more whys,
welcoming a debate.

So stop....pause(just for a split second)
Honour my father and mother.

Honour yours too(:

What is my cause of change & what do I want?

that's the thought heavy on my mind this week that i got directed to during dinner with my dear friend,Farhana from the polytechnic, currently at the one the childcare centres being forefront of advocating best practices for our children.

Peparing to begin my sponsorship bond
on top of preparing for Kaboom,Vacation Bible School(VBS), tidy up my every messy room.

What do I want to achieve out of this experience?

Retreat for HIM to speak to me this week as He lead my way(:

This and that

Preparing for the Army Half Marathon with a semi closed wound from a wisdom tooth extraction's not a thing you wanna have before a run, but taking it in my stride.

Getting an earful reminder of the my role as a Chrisitian
before participating in such things happening on Sunday from my faithful dad.

Realising that doing a shorter run while helping people like reading of the Yellow Ribbon Run
would have been a better alternative, (resolution for the coming run selections)
though with the hoo-haa of people misappropriating funds& the very stories of funding not getting to people who really need it,
and at the back of my mind, feeling strongly to demand the commitee to be accountable.
Hope the funds contributed to the run will be disseminated adequately to the various people who REALLY need the assistance.

A start to the new week,
People with exams, more school homework during the holiday week, exam preparaions.
Have a blesssed week& we look towards our Father for our strength(:

AND another few more days to O.R.D.

Today is the Day

I'm beginning this post at such an unruly hour after returning from sending Han off earlier.

Having decided that I will not fall asleep before I end my prayer to God tonight,
I decided it was time to change my posture to at least end my prayer properly.
People dear to me, Loved ones, things just ran past my mind praying,
and I actually ended the prayer for the night.
But closing my eyes just didn't seem to 'off' the mind' with tooth aching,
perhaps caffeine overdose with coffee&tea earlier.
So, rather than flipping&tossing in bed, ink it down before its put off AGAIN.

Its ever closer to my Operationally Ready Date(ORD),
resting at home having gone for wisdom tooth extraction,
thank God for the intercessions & encouragement from Jonas,Mithrian, Sue Ann,Joel, Amanda , many more that morning,
for medical staff that were up with a smile,
for patience in waiting,
table tennis finals to cheer on before&after the mini surgery.
(1 more later in the morning:p)
In times of struggle where holding on to God felt most real.
Remembering for thanksgiving & placing HIM 1st(:


-Like Incense-Hillsongs-

Remembering the simple phrase of 'Oh God you are my God& I will ever praise You' seeking Him in the morning(&evermore),learning to walk in His ways
while my doctor drilled on for my tooth in that duration of 15minutes.

These 2 weeks watching the Youth Olympics Games' Volleyball ,Table Tennis matches
&the National Day Rally stirred up the attribute of a leader.

While your workers are labouring, its not the leader who takes a break,
but yet he/she works even more.
like spotting for your blind spots,
Really observant coaches feedbacking your performances in sport match breaks for really effective counterattacks,
captain of volleyball teams especially the Peru girls' Captain hanging on in the entire match up against Belgium.
The brief shot of Mentors seated in front of the Prime Minster,
of continuous learning even at such advanced ages.
How important a lesson.

And Procrastination,('waiting a while')
struggle mann, do it now instead.
Something i should leave out of my system.

Dear friends, raise your flag and flag me!
I'm learning to note things on my mind&do it
while my trusty notebook hangs around me to help me.

Renewal & growth Lord, putting You no.1 in ALL things(:

Have a blessed week my friends(:
