Just an interesting taught

We often do immediate things instead of important ones, what I learnt from teaching YPMS and I realised this is so true,especially to do with eternal things. Eternal things are the least immediate since we will only receive them in heaven yet are the most important! Hence we need to let go of some immediate things and plan our time so that we can do important things of eternal value

cool to know

Some important things the world has mixed up :p

On marriage: It's not marrying who you love but loving who you marry that's important
On work: It's not doing what you enjoy but enjoying what you do that's important
Finally, on faith: It's not if it's good, it comes from God but everything that comes from God is good
and since everything is in God's hands, have faith that it is good and thank God for it.

Sharing is caring

We had always learnt to share God's blessings and joy with others but today I realised how important it is to also share our troubles and woes. Thank you Jerome for always being so open, sharing your life to us and Kimberley for pushing me to share today, I never realised how liberating and right it could be to just share something so close to my heart I would never be comfortable sharing it. Thank you God for giving me such a faithful group of friends with whom I can share my cares without being judged as something less. And thank you for this break through from my pride and trying to put up this front of being perfect and everything being fine for I am mere human. Praise the Lord and I pray that through His courage and grace I would be able to be more open and willing to share as I grow in Him. I don't have to be perfect to listen to others' problems, I can have problems too for they are there to listen as well(:

reflections from 2012

My God does miracles
I have many things to thank God for this year! I really thank God for the opportunity to serve in YPM Camp as logs. Even though it was really really tiring and crazy, I thank God for the company and help of the rest of the camp comm as we bought all the stuff together, settled all the printing and games and all the preparation as well as during the camp itself running here and there. It was really a great joy to work with them. I also want to highlight day 3 where Jia En prayed for me (thanks Jia En!) about getting help when I need it and also alertness throughout the day and I really thank God for prompting me to look at the time when I was engrossed in the sermon so I would realised that the lunch catering might be calling soon and true enough when i looked at my phone he was calling! Also, throughout the day many many people came to me to ask if i needed help doing anything! and the siew ho and the music team did the disassembling and keeping of all the music instruments and Glenn and Helu helped tremendously with all moving logs back to church and everything. Really thank and praise God also for being able to be a part of the amazing work He is doing in YPM, it's really exciting how He's stirring the hearts of this generation as they start exercising their gifts of the Spirit and having a heart for the lost! Indeed greater things are yet to come and the glory of the later house will be greater than the glory of the former house.

Thank you God for the many things this year, from hostel-the experience, new friends, deeper friendships, sports, hostel cf and how it impacted lives. Lord I thank you for granting me opportunities to develop friendships and I pray for opportunities to reach out, thank you for working through me to spur others on toward love and good deeds and encourage my friends along in their Christian walks, I pray that they never slide back but are continually spurred by their friends in church.

Thank you for allowing me to serve also in YPMS and YPM. Thankyou for such a wonderful cell group, where I can grow and where I can help others grow, it's a great privilege. Thank you also for my YPMS class, seeing them grow up this year, changes in their lives after YPM camp, getting to know them better over Daniel's christmas party and everything, thank you that I can be part of their lives, impacting them for you.

Lord, thank you also for my friends and family. Thank you for my family, even as I was away at hostel and only saw them during the weekends. Thank you for papa, who will wake up early on mondays to fetch me to school and wait for me on fridays to fetch me back, and for showing me love in his way. Thank you for mummy and her concern for me, smsing me during the week and stocking up all the yogurt and ice-cream especially for me during the weekend. Thank you for korkor even as he has been overseas for spurring me on in my walk with You as he shared about reading 10 Christian books this year and how he does everything with the attitude and heart's atmosphere of worship that even though he was super busy he did not burn out. Thank you for jiejie that I can teach her math and for being there for me and just being her haha. Lord I am indeed blessed to have such a wonderful family.

Thank you Lord even now that I can help out in orientation next year and be an OGL! An experience I wouldnt want to miss haha and also for my ARP that even through all the business and postponing, it has a prototype and I continue to pray that we can complete it soon. Thank you also for giving me good grades even as I didnt study much if at all most of the time juggling 4 honours and 2 olympiads and everything. Thank you also for honourable mention for physics olympiad and 2nd round for chem, thank you for giving me intellect and a good memory, truly all glory and praise be to you.

Thank you even for the pain, that really made me realise some things and taught me about surrendering and trusting you in everything!

Thank you Lord, you have truly blessed me this year!

And more, til now

Serving(Day 29-35)

Day 35- God's power in your weakness
I need to not keep putting up a front of having it all going for me and admit my mistakes and problems freely cos I am only human so I shouldnt be proud for weaknesses make me real and when I am weak, God is still strong, show's His power at work.

Day 33 and 34- Being a servant
In everything you do, do it with all your heart. My service is for God and not man so whether it is recognised or not I will still put in my best effort. My attitude should be the same as that of Christ, seeking to serve and not to be served.

Day 30-32- My SHAPE
I am uniquely created by God for His purpose so I should seek to find what ministry He meant for me and serve to the best of my abilities and gifts, freely sharing my experiences and serving with all my heart. I should not look down on or be jealous of other ministries.

Day 29- Serving is not optional
We were created, saved, called and commanded to serve God. Do I avail myself to serve God or am I too focussed on doing my things?

Christ-like(Day 22-28)

Day 28-It takes time
Becoming more and more like Christ takes a lot of time and work but we are to be confident that He who began a good work in us will carry it out to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Be persistent and persevere and keep practising!

Day 26 and 27-Temptation
Temptations allow us to do good instead of sinning! By defeating temptation we develop Christ-like character. Also, there is always a way out, God will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you can bear! Ask others to pray for you as well

Day 24 and 25- Transformed by truth and trouble
The bible was not given to increase our knowledge but to change our lives! So meditate on it and apply it! When in problems, always remember that Christ is with us and problems allow us to grow.

Day 22 and 23- Becoming Christ-like
This can be done only through the Holy Spirit. It is also an intentional commitment and choice, we need to put in effort to change as well.

Fellowship(Day 15-21)

Day 21-21- Restoring broken fellowship and protecting unity
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God. We are all imperfect so we need to be accepting of one another and be encouraging.

Day 17-19- The church
Do I love and am I committed to the church? Authentic fellowship involves sharing in honesty and humility. I need to give others more of my time and place them on a higher priority no matter how busy I am.

Day 15-16- Love my family in Christ
We are part of God's family and are called into this relationship not just with God but also other Christians. Building relationships ought to be my priority.

Worship(Day 8-14)
Day 14- When God seems distant
We can honestly tell God how we feel even if He doesn't respond and we need to focus on His unchanging nature and trust in His promises and remember what He has done for me-set up ebenezer stones.

Another week's worth of purpose driven life(:



Day 13- Worship that pleases God

God wants all of me and our worship to God must be accurate, authentic, thoughtful and practical. Sometimes I get distracted during worship and I need to really focus on God and let everything else fade away

John 4:23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PH-snsXw1as

Day 12- Developing your friendship with God

I'm as close to God as I choose to be. I need to be honest in talking with God, to say what's truly on my heart instead of things to please Him...also I need a heart after God's own heart. Daily ask God to reignite this passion of knowing Him.

Pslam 63:3 Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpxQaItQTNE

Day 11- Becoming best friends with God

God wants to be my friend! I need to pray continually and constantly meditate on His word anytime and anywhere. I need to fill my mind with christian music instead of non-christian ones

Psalm 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQ6zKa947mA\

Day 10- The heart of worship
The heart of worship is surrender. I need to focus on God instead of worldly things, and to surrender completely to God in everything.

Rom 12:1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God - this is your spiritual act of worship.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvgwKGzvcd0

Day 9- What makes God smile?
God smiles when I love Him most, trust Him totally, obey Him with my whole heart. I need to trust Him and obey Him especially in things that matter a lot to me because He knows best. Still, it's hard to surrender all.

Luke 10:27 He answered, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and love your neighbour as yourself."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8mr839-TVs

Day 8- Planned for God’s pleasure

Indeed I was planned for God's pleasure. Am I thinking constantly of Him and doing everything for Him? For everything you do, work at it with all your heart as working for the Lord, not for men. What I do needs to be for His glory and in worship to Him. Romans 12:1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God-this is your spiritual act of worship

Here's another verse Col 1 :16 For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Him and for Him


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEaoc1Szf30

Oh and I want to thank God for answering my prayer about the movie booking being able to be shifted thank you Lord!

Day 7

Wow today was something...>< but Lord you are Lord of all, so I commit the problem into your hands.

Anyway here's my reflections on day 7 The reason for everything
Yes it's all for Him, all for His glory. So are we living for our own glory or for Christ's? We were created to glorify God by worshipping Him, loving others, having His character, serving others with our gifts and sharing the good news. So remember, this life is for glorifying Him
