A lesson from the everyday!

It's my 2nd week bck to kch  evryday is a new &wonderful day for me! Home is still the best place, it's a place where my heart belong to!

During the journey I fly bck frm Adel, I started to think how to make full use of my 3 months holiday! I pray for his wisdom & ways in me! What I can say is: our God is a God who always suprises & amazes us with unexpected events! my everyday is filled with excitement, suprises!!!!

The first day i reached kch, I couldn't get into my house as none of my family members are at kch! IT IS SUCH A HILARIOUS EXPERIENCE I ever had for my 22 years of life! Thanks God that I had been blessed with my besties Phiong for "adopting" me for 1 night......
Now I look back, it is actually a perfect moment time for us to catch up with each other aft long time of distance apart and we had a great time of heart conversation!
Without this incident, we won't be able to hv the opportunity to stay over at the same place & chatting face to face that much to each other!
Our God is actually a God who actually makes everything happen with a purpose which hidden with his beautiful plans for us!

After Kiing&me registered for our IELTS at IDP, we went to the Spring to meet up with Amy for K-session! mostly Mr. Jay chou's songs......our beautiful,sweet voices are able to make the sky raining! keke:D
3 of us hd a "NICE" &beautiful experience for K-session, we broke a glass & forgot to take our lao po beng! Thanks God, we didn't get fined &even gt bck our lao po peng after 4 hours since we left K-box!
the moment we broke the glass, the first thing we did was asking Jesus to help us &hv faith in him! We don't want to get fined! & he listens to our ask!  thank you Jesus:)
Then, we went to HOJB to look for crystal bracelet. this is the first time i bought a RM1135 crystal bracelet which nearly made me fainted! At first,  I only thought of getting myself a pretty & comfortable& reasonable price crystal bracelet to pamper myself.....Unexpectedly, I picked a TOO Costly & Pricey bracelet which is not appliable for me AS A STUDENT to get! Somemore, I am not a full time Working adult yet!!!!!!  I made a mistake of buying stuff without looking at the price tag! 
I had spent abt 300++ aussie dollars which is my 1 week rental payment....I had spent too much on an unnecessary luxurious material... 
This incident not only taught me a lesson, also to the other 2 girls.......WE learnt to be wise in choosing , buying stuffs! we nd to open our eyes,always be rationale & smart in making decision!

Today devotion I study Jeremiah 18:1-10. It says about AT POTTER's HOUSE! Sometimes, we learn the most profound lessons from an everyday experience. OUR potter can mould us through our single little bits of our daily life experiences.
this was what happened for Jeremiah the day he obeyed God's intrustion and went to the potter's house. The potter was an essential part of the community as a variety of pots were in daily use in every household.
the bible states Jeremiah watched & learned! the potter would have worked quickly and confidently as he took a lump of clay & began to shape it. But when it failed to produce the shape he had  in mind he started again. The lump of clay would be formed and reformed until the potter was satisfied with the end product.

For us being shaped by the divine potter is sometimes painful. But God is the Master Potter who works in our lives to produce beauty and character.
WE may not understand the trials and suffering of the present but we can be confident that the Potter work in our lives by his goodness and grace!!!!!
The question is : WILL WE TRUST HIM?!

Continue to trust in him that he is shaping us to produce beauty & character!!!!!! He is the protection of our virtues:)
God bless u & have a good week ahead!

Joseph-a humble man for a heavenly mission

Today after we sent dad to airport, we went to church together. David, stephen &  me, 3 of us drove to FMC for sunday service, it is Communion Sunday.

Rev Ampi teaches us the story of Joseph (Jesus's earthly father) in Matt 1: 18-25, who is a humble man for a heavenly mission.
the bible told us Joseph is an overcomer of trials & tests. God placed a call on him. The tragedy that marred his life actually marked his life. He is given a task by God that involved divine revelation- the birth of Jesus Christ. When Mary was pregnant, he actually wanted to divorce her quietly because he was a righteous man. He did not want to embarass Mary in publicity. But when he meditated in this sorrowful decision, during the time of shattered dreams, every plans seems to grain into sand. God sent angel Gabriel spoke to him. He learnt an amazing truth with a delightful realization.
God just transformed his worst nightmare into greatest blessing. He understood enough that he could put his shoulder to the God Lord to bear joyfulness.
From here, we can see the incredible testimony of Joseph  that measures his life.
Joseph shows a testimony of unconditional compliance. He did what the angel of God command him to do, marry Mary. Besides, he also takes up the responsibility and commitment as a father to Jesus, taking care and raising him up as his child when the angel asks him to give name to the child as Jesus. In those days, giving name to a child carries a hidden meaning of responsibilty of care.
He sets out by FAITH to obey the Lord  despite the fears & questions.
He wants nothing more than to do the Perfect WILL of God.
He did what God ask him to do!

This sermon actually speaks to me in how I respond to God when he ask something frm me/ when I am going through hard times, trials in my life...?!
Am I able to be like Joseph who STEP OUT by Faith to put his shoulder to God and obey him?
It is definitely a very good testimony for all of us to learn and see from Joseph about our attitude towards God!
God's words are the best daily bread for us to meditate, building our Faith & Believe in God.
The Bible says in 2 Peter 1:3 that as we grow in our knowledge of God, through his divine power he gives us everything we need for life and godliness. Jesus relied on the Word of God alone to overcome obstacles, including the devil. God's Word is alive and powerful (Hebrews 4:12), useful for correcting us when we are wrong and teaching us what is right (2 Timothy 3:16). So, it makes sense for us to carry God's Word in our hearts through memorization, to be ready to face any problem, every difficulty, and whatsoever challenge that life can send our way.
Continue to hold onto his faithful promises that he'll bless & give us THE BEST! Remember, our God is the high priest of hope & faithfulness!
He is our refuge, our shelters. Jesus says in Matt 11:28-30: Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

Jesus Loves YOU & ME!
He is our first love and the perfect love!:)
Continue to burn and love, hv the passion in Christ!

5 lessons of WHAT TO DO in the middle of the storms!

Last week we had combined sunday service at central, Dr. Samuel Chand preached about the story of Jesus walked on the water.....
He is a very inspiring speaker, a very annointing Godly man! He brought out God's messages to us through a very humorous way which made the whole sermon so alive and made the seed planted on a good soil by the work of holy spirit, deep inside our heart. I believe everyone gain something from this service.
I personally think that i should write a blog about this which i think this message is beneficial to all of us and bless evryone of us here.

Matthew 14:22-32 the story of Jesus walks on the water
Lesson 1: V22 Jesus actually made the disciples get into the boat & the disciples follow his order.
Our obedient can put us into the storm! Well, God has his purpose of putting us into the storm

Lesson 2:  V23
Lord will meet you in your storm.
3 points you should do during the storms.
(a) Be a good cheer by keeping a good attitude. YOUR ATTITUDE DETERMINES YOUR ALTITUDE.
(b) Come to Jesus, he'll never forsaken you. He is the God in and out the storm. 
in v 27, Jesus says "IT IS I" = he is saying it is me, i'll never leave you!
(c) Don't be afraid. Jesus says in v 27, It is I , don't be afraid. Count on Jesus, he is always there!
Jesus is in control of ur storms, don't be afraid. 

Lesson 3: Your storms will show you who your friends are. V28-29
When Peter is stepping out from the boat, the other disciples are holding back on the boat.
Don't be a DRY "boat people" INSTEAD STEP OUT to where Jesus is~~~ Be a WET WATER WALKER~~~

Lesson 4: The Lord will show you who you are in the storms.
V30 Peter cried out  "Lord ,save me"!
It is reckon as the extreme Passive voice of Peter where Peter had tried out everything he could do before he cried out for Jesus's help! From here, we can see that when storm comes, we will know Jesus is the "ONLY HELP"!

Lesson 5: The Lord will show you who he is through the storms.
V32 When they climbed into the boat, the wind died down.
The storm didn't stop until they got back to the boat. And the disciples say Truly he is the Son of God! through the storms in our life, we see Jesus!
Jesus is the storm and healer in the same time!
When Jesus on hold of your life, you will ready to walk on the storms. READY TO EMPOWER IN THE STORM.
and Walk hand-in-hand with Jesus.

REMember, the storms in our life are trials and tests from God, we have the need of understanding the key of being trusting and be faithful in God that he'll help us to go through all these, so that, in the end, all the honour and glory are belonged to our Lord Jesus.
Our TESTs AND TriALs will produce a great living testimony to other!
YOU"LL never have a testimony unless you have the test!

When we are facing any battle in our life, we should descend and get close to God---like what Peter did, go to Jesus,let him speaks to us into our life to show us the way! Be humble, be honest and depending on Holy Spirit.
Take up our position and stand still.
Psalms 46 Be still and know I am God.
It is a position of faith. BE FAITHFUL to Jesus. In Hebrew 11- Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we DO NOT SEE.
Faith is about believing in what we cannot see. In the middle of storm, we should be still, stay faithful to God, go near to him, let him show us what to do!
 Remember our God is the God who turn our struggles into strengths! In God, all thing are possible, are possible!

Continue to stay faithful in Christ, come boldly to him, hold onto the promises that he hd given us!
You're highly favored, deeply loved and greatly blessed in Christ!

Last night i just watched a short video about the Love Story of a couple: Brian & Jacelyn! I was so amazed witnessing how manifesing & mighty God, willing to be involved in every detail of their life. They had been showed a bible verse Ecc 4:9 about TWO ARE BETTER THAN ONE...with the right timing and knot together into a courtship & finally recently they just got married on 10 October 2010.
this verse had moulded them, challenged them into two better person. In fact, two are not better than one IF TWO cannot become one. This verse taught us about God and about Love.

This couple testimony had reminded me of how great is our God. Indeed two are better than one.

Their story had made me think of what kind of love story am i longing for:) I bet every girls fancy and hope to have a perfect love story like Cinderella, Snow white, just like the fairy tale, having a happy ending if I can happen. Does it really happen in reality?! i am kind of questioning myself, am I longing for such a perfect love story as well?!. the answer is NO!

In my point of view, I think every love relationship is like a triangle which involving Jesus Christ as the centre peak that brings both of the couple together. Jesus is the one that brings every couple together at a perfect timing and guide them through the up & down of their life.
Jesus should be always at the NO.1 position in this relationship. If the couple have a very close relationship with God, they seek and pray to God everyday, love God with all their heart, soul and mind, automatically, they will become close to each other as well. It is the ultimate rule because they love God more than they love each other. They put God first in their life. They soaked themselves in the presence of God and filled with his overwhelming love which made they know how to love each other with God's love as they had experienced God's love in them.

Recently I had been asked by peoples about why am I still remain single since i had reached the age of getting myself a boyfriend? Or why am I rejecting guys whom interested in me? ARe they not high standard enough? not rich enough? not capable enough? that's why i reject them??? and so on.....I had been asked all  these questions continuously for months since March early of this year. Peoples keep questioning my responses.
I give a very lame reason of I am Single but I am emotionally unavailable. In other sense, it is a very polite way of rejecting a guy in telling him i am not ready yet without hurting his feeling.  
Well I might not as courageous as other girls, or very good in expressing my thinking, but I always know my stand. I have to stand still and hold onto it. I have to let the guys know that I just want to maintain the balance of friendship. I don't wish to overcross the boundaries of friendship with any guys that are interested in me when I myself is not ready to involve in love relationship.

For me, I think Love Relationship is all about Waiting + Readiness for the Perfect Time. So I am still at the stage of waiting & equipping myself to be ready for it when the time comes.
I don't want to jump into a relationship just because my other girlfriends all have a boyfriend, having the ego that I don't want to become a loser, be the one who is far left behind them. Or because I don't want to dissapoint certain guys, and fulfill their request.
In this moment, my eyes are focus on God's kingdom and I am still waiting for the green light from God to show me when should I commit into a relationship, and which guy is the one that he prepared for me. well, I know now is not the right time yet.
I am passionate about the calling of my life. I know it is not an coincidence for me to study at Adelaide. I know all these happen with a purpose and it will never happen without God's grace in my life.
Our God is a true & living God that he hears our prayer. I believe my future career of being a nurse will bring a great impact to those people around me, and I will keep holding to his promise that he will guide and bless me through my journey.
I would like to equip myself with God's words, loves: building a strong & intimate relationship with God, understand God's love towards me, fulfilling his purpose of life in me. i would like to become an apple in God's eyes, a woman of God, in the meantime, I equiped & prepared myself to be the best suitable woman for my future partner. And continue to pray for my future spouse which God had prepared for me.
I remember my mom used to tell me that I should not wait for the guy to become the best guy for you but I myself have to prepare & equip myself to be the best woman for him and pray for him.
I always believe we can only love others with God's love if we had experienced God's love in us.
SO, I believe God has prepared me a guy who is most suitable for me, as he knows who is the best for me.
I just need to keep believing in him, pray to him, and love him with all my heart, soul, and mind! he'll provide!

Birdseye view, awake the stars cause they're all around you,

Wide eyes will always brighten the blue:
Chase your dreams & remb me, speak bravery, because after all those wings will take you, up so high,so bid the forest a fond goodbye, as you brace the wind &Take to the SKY :)
I ended my blog with my favourite song "TO THE SKY" sang by adam young!

Never give up for your dreams! our dreams are our motivation:)
All the best to those who are in love, God bless you with a fruitful relationship ! and happy waiting for those who is still waiting for the right one from God:) including me too ^_^

After a long while away from blogging life, i came back to blogging WORLD which influenced by my "cute, charming" pikachu friend! Actually there is always a hidden urgency in my heart of going back to blogging life all for this while, but my laziness just stop the momentum from moving on!
Finally i made it, a new starting of a new month of October! haha

ERm, actually i really have not much idea of what to share for my first blog!
I might start with a short sharing about GOD USE US TO TOUCH PEOPLE AROUND US.  When i attended Hope Melbourne last month, a brother was sharing his testimony about how God use him to bless those people around him, it just happen so miraculously without expectation. It showed that all of us are called to be an influencer. It reminded me of my story with one of my clients at my workplace. She was touched by God's love when I prayed for her for the first time, where she said she felt so touched and peaceful in her heart when I prayed for her. That day was her birthday and I really thank God that I introduced Jesus Christ to her. And I thought it was the best gift I ever gave to someone during their birthday! I will continue to keep her in my prayer, and i believe one day she'll come to Christ.

Our overwhelming God's love in us can touch people around us who need God's love in them sufficiently! Overflowing into their life, get touched by God's powerful LOVE. Never look down on God's love, as it is the most powerful weapon to win battle for our Lord. As the bible states, among hope,faith & love, THE GREATEST is LOVE! Love can overcome everything!
John 3:16"For God so loved the world that he gaved his one and ONLY Son, that whoever believe in him shall not perish but have eternal life".

How to be a great influencer????  2 keys that contribute us to become a great influencer are OBEDIENCE TO GOD & EmPOWERING BY HOLY SPIRIT.
We should expand our VIsION to be a blessing to others by looking OUTWARD! Keep believing and proclaiming that GoD will explode the works.

Don't forget, everyone of us are wonderfully and fearfully made by God, and we're created in the LIKENESS OF GOD! God has put purpose of life in everyone life, we just need to ask, seek , believe & receive! Keep hold on to the promise of God, continue to stay passionate with the calling of your life!
Jeremiah 33:3 says "Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know". God has promised us that we just need to call him which is through prayer, tell him what you want to know and he'll answer us. He is waiting for us to ask before he blesses us with what he longs to give us.

I think it should be enough for this time and i'll try my best to write more, share more in my next blog!
Continue to soak yourself in God's presence, you're highly favored, deeply loved in Christ:)
