I sowed my first seed today! In all my life as a Christian I had never reached out to a non-Christian before, despite all the passion inside me! This is definitely a day to remember!

I made a decision to step out in faith and out of my comfort zone! In order to mentally prepare myself I created this wallpaper last night! This serves to remind me everyday that I must DO and not just READ the Word! The Word is the sword of the spirit:
Hebrews 4:12
12For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.


The wallpaper designed with MS paint!



I will try harder and press on!

Topic: Happy Bday MOM!

It's MOM'S BDAY TODAY! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! I wrote her a card on behalf of three of us, bro was in school, sis was somewhere on her way back home from SMU. Mom was greatly surprised hahah! In the afternoon when I came home I saw a huge hamper given by someone to her! She was listening to sermons or watching videos with her headphones on and when I greeted her she nodded, I knew what was on her mind, And thankfully I saw the hamper or I might have forgotten her Bday lol and that would be too disappointing. But then I really forgot about it! and pooof I only remembered at 5:50pm (came home at 3)!! Not much time left! Thankfully mom was sleeping in her room. Instantly I messaged bro and sis to get mom something, whatever they wanted! I wanted to surprise mom and decided to write her a card! Finished writing and I thought of placing it into an envelope but thought again and "hmm maybe I can fold it into something!" so I googled 'paper folding' and found a result that taught me in 6 steps how to fold a heart shaped (pathetic lol) and in front of the dining table at 7:30pm while dad and mom were eating, I was folding that thing and it wasn't too obvious because they didn't realise it at all! Bro and sis returned and I asked what they bought and they told me that they got nothing! Whoa I was so disappointed, so I ran into the room to think of anything to get for mom(didn't manage to find anything) till sis came up, and from one of the bags at home she took out a Yellow Lays(mom's favourite!) that was awesome! Just right! Taped my heart-shaped card onto the Lays! So we boomed in front of MOM all at once it was indeed a great surprise! Glad she liked it! and gave each of us a hug lol~ read the card hehe, had a great time feasting, ate hersheys, nougat! Fun!

Left at 8:30pm half way thru the night study with my bro. On the way back in 985 old friend Marvin who suddenly boarded and WOH I had to raise my hands and stand up to salute to him(an involuntary reaction)! LOL we shaked hands (the way guys greet) before even saying a word haha.. He asked how I was doing in J2, I replied it's hard because I'm too playful, and he was going somewhere to study which I didn't ask him. It's great to meet my old buddies! It's rather coincidental that we met today when we're all returning on teachers' day!

Wow.

Was studying in the concourse with my bro around 3:30. It's always great to meet him lol! Returned to class at 5:45, Marc asked me where I went, I told him I studied math in the concourse and he was rather surprised. I was more surprised that most of my classmates were playing cards. And as tho studying would make a difference lol, all J2 topics were tested it's impossible to be too ambitious. Lol today's physics test is a gonna. Can say bye to the last 14 marks! Bye! I'd get at most 20 marks lol- Kames Joh will be very mad with me = =

Hope I get back into the momentum of studying for As. I seemed to have lost touch of studying. Still I'm not at all discouraged ~ I believe everything's possible :)

Topic: A POWERFUL TESTIMONY
Date: 26 Aug 2007

I shouldn't look at my problems. Instead my focus would be on what God's given me. All of us ought to pray to God with a heart of thanksgiving! What has God done for my (extended) family? In a span of a year, what radical transformations have taken place?? At first I thought God's hadn't done much. Then I thought again. And I was amazed, I can't believe this less. Last year, there were a total of 11 believers in my family. Slowly God moved, and things began to happen: We moved to our new church. Uncle was baptised. Another uncle was saved. 6 of my cousins were saved(one's gonna get baptised today!). My prodigal aunty was reborn. A TOTAL OF 7 new believers!! A 54.5454% growth! And more to come! I would have never expected last August! God has done mighty works in the past year!

How can I not testify this! IT'S AWESOME!

By the end of 2007, I believe 3 more cousins could be saved, a few aunties or uncles! How can I say that's not possible!?!

Give God all the glory for all his marvellous works!!!!!!!! I'M TOO EXCITED!
Time: 05:59:16 AM

It's 5am. Was listening to online sermons, can't fall asleep! haha. Was reading my archives. I wrote quite a bit about my experiences at night in my testimony in may. Comparing my understanding to then, it's rather different. I wouldn't agree with everything I wrote:

"Well sometimes it doesnt work by driving them away in Jesus' name. It didnt for hundreds of times for me."
I wrote that and it's wrong. I've learnt to believe - by faith - that there is real power in Jesus Name. When I compelled the spirit in Jesus' Name it didn't leave. Why? Firstly, I forgot my sword(The word). I didn't know much of God's word. 2ndly, I forgot my shield.(Faith) I didn't know my identity in Christ then.
BUT I was given this experiences for a reason. So that? I would have to ask God for wisdom to deal with them. Thanks to God, he revealed the answers. If anyone ever gets such experiences, you can pray that prayer I gave in the May testimony(In the testimony I said I was completely delivered from the experiences. Wrong. I wasn't! I still have them today!) But the prayer will not suffice. We also will have to pray against the spirit of fear to leave us in faith(faith opposes fear right?) and reassure ourselves(Saying aloud) that the evil spirit cannot harm us. Scripture memory will help!

God can use Satan's work(He wanted to plant fear into my life, and disrupt my sleep to affect my health) for our good. Without exposing me to the spiritual reality, I would never have learnt my identity in Christ. How then can I ever have the faith to do anything, like casting out demons or healing the sick? The faith to be unafraid of the spiritual attacks at night is the same faith used for healing! What a revelation! It's gonna help me in all areas of my walk!

If I have confused some people with my past posts, I sincerely apologise. How can I be what I am today if I hadn't been through the "noob" times? Who hasn't been through childhood before! (Just drawing a unnecessary parallel) I just have to keep growing. I pray each one of us(believers) continue to grow in Christ patiently. I pray that we do God's work with right motives and with a humble heart. I pray also that we ask God for his Wisdom in dealing with anything. I pray that any fear or insecurity we have in our lives be cast out and the Holy Spirit would take the place. And I also pray for all unforgiveness we harbour in our hearts be broken (this is extremely important). I pray that we grow in unity as one body and stay in peace with one another with few fights and arguments. I pray for the renewal of the mind, that we adopt the mind of Christ, to have more right thinking patterns, less dependence on our emotions, and that our minds be immersed in the Word. Giving thanks to God, in Jesus' Name, Amen.

So glad! I have one goal now. To spread the gospel. God will always be there to guide me! Gonna catch sleep gnite.
Time: 15:04:59 PM

I woke up at around 1+ but half lazing in bed, ate Doritos and chatted with my bro about Spiritual attacks several times in the morning. Discussed about our weak faith and how we should develop it. Yesterday he had a discussion with his cellmates, his cell leader asked, 'Let's say the handphone blows up and all of us die. Who believes they're going to heaven?' and most hands went up. My bro said he was unsure and so didn't raise his hand, fearing that he might not have done the will of God and wouldn't be saved. So I was explaining to him that he can be confident that he's saved if he obeys God's word and put them into practice, and be on fire(not lukewarm or cold). God knows our hearts.

Going off to study physics! ")

If anyone is seeking for something's that missing in your life, I know the answer. GOD is the only one true god in this world. Looking back at my life I have been transformed drastically (looks, personality, behaviour, thoughts&emotions, purpose). Thinking with my human mind it all doesn't make sense. 'Why is this happening' 'Why is that happening' 'What's the purpose of studying' 'Why am I in this place/situation' 'Why am I suffering from this problem' IT ALL DOESNT MAKE SENSE TO ME. Then I asked God, "Why God?" It's said in God's word that God gives wisdom freely to all without finding fault with us. I longed for his answer. I have asked him this question for months and I could have got the answer earlier "". In the past fornight I had the most wonderful answers. God helped me to think in his perspective instead of mine. I want to tell(or encourage) everyone that you're placed in your shoes for God's reason. It's not for us to debate, since what we consider wisdom to us is foolishness to God, and what God regards as Wisdom is foolishness to us. (Thanks dad for telling me) Arguing back with your own perspective of what you think your life should be like for it to be considered successful is pointless.
Listening to sermons, Paul writes:
Trials and Temptations
2Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. 6But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; 8he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.
9The brother in humble circumstances ought to take pride in his high position. 10But the one who is rich should take pride in his low position, because he will pass away like a wild flower. 11For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich man will fade away even while he goes about his business.
12Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.
13When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. 15Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.
16Don't be deceived, my dear brothers. 17Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. 18He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.
Thanks for the sermons, the encouragement from dad, from uncles, from my BRO (A LOT), from myself cuz looking back, the 'thorn' in the flesh is placed in my life so that God will be able to transform me into a 'high-quality' product through the testings. (drawing a parallel: Electronics undergo testing after testing, that's why your IPOD is so durable and is considered a "high-quality" product!) It all makes sense now!!

Have to go off to church! Bb ~~~
