In the Secret, Quiet Place

It's 2.34am.
I can't sleep as my mind just run through with thoughts.

Deep thoughts that cannot be comprehended.
Yet, it these thoughts matters deeply to my heart.
I stand in reflection, as I ponder in God's grace
to understand the meaning of life.

Who am I? Why am I here?
at this place, at this time, in this situation.

Dear God, where will I go?
As I led myself into contemplation,
I stand silently, naked before God,
In uncertainty I wait with patience,

And there He came,
and in the stillness of the night,
Holy, righteous, faithful One
My Savior, Healer, Redeemer and Friend

The things of this world
Then begin subdued to nothing
For nothing else matters,
but His love endures all.

Living Christ and the Urgency of the Cross

Open the blind eyes,
Unlock the deaf ears
Come to your people
As we draw near,

Hear us from heaven
Touch your generation
We are your people,
Crying out in desperation

Each time hear this song by Ross Parsley, I am reminded time and again of the urgency of the Cross. How many times we fall into slumber and the value of our salvation is watered down by our own human understanding, and the fall of man. The urgency of the cross calls us to the Great Commission, "Go make disciples of all nation, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit." The cross calls us to give up our lives to proclaim the Good News, and we as Christians has to first cry out to God, to open our blind eyes, our deaf ears that we may draw near.

It's true, we Christians are blinded by many things of this world. We care too much in leading a quality life according to the world's measure. The defining moments of success only becomes real when we count the number of A's we get in our studies, do we get enough job offers after graduation, was the event planned to the success, have I been a good steward to my money, do I have enough in my bank account to afford a car, a house an apartment, get married, have children. You are successful, all glory to God only then.

I sit down and look back and thought, how much more should we succumb and fit into "the mold"?

Sometimes we can also play Christian and only focus on living the good life, of full service to the Lord, full commitment to the church, live our lives clean. And we think we are all-righteous because, "I don't go clubbing, I don't do drugs, I don't watch horror movies". We begin to judge also those who holds that difference and shun them away from the fence of Christianity. Without realizing, Satan is given an opportunity when we put judgment above love. Over history, we see the war outbreak, crusades, man killing each other in the name of Christ and we forget that Jesus never even lay his hands on those guards who seized him.

Again, we forget that the every essence of our Christian life is not of religious practices, but a relationship with Christ. The true mark of a Christian is the AGAPE LOVE that only comes with true relationship with Christ. The agape love that will see beyond our sins, to look into a murderer, a prisoner's eyes, your friend next door, those who backstabbed you as a person, also worthy of salvation. God loves them too.

Open our blind eyes,
Unlock our deaf ears,
Come to your people,
As we draw near.

When will we realize that the church is falling because we are too busy with our own agenda, protecting ourselves our theology, what our denomination preaches and we forget the urgency of the cross which calls us to wake up from our slumber and start collecting the harvest God has prepared. "The fields are ready, but the workers are few, " says God.

One day, there will be a great awakening. God is going to bring judgment to this world. Are we ready for it?

Be it, as children of God. Wake up from slumber and know that obedience is better than sacrifice. This call of obedience, is not to the OT law, or to the righteous life. This call of obedience is to obey Christ, taking up His yoke, and learn from Him daily. This call is to above all, obey His love for you, and His people, to understand His heart, to allow your heart beat to be like His. A true sacrifice, a sweet smelling aroma unto God.

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,
Because the Lord has anointed me
To preach the good news to the poor
He has sent me to heal the broken hearted
To proclaim liberty to the captives
and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.
 Isaiah 61:1-3

Rise up, therefore, as anointed children of God. As dawn breaks, we have work to do. We are all called to be light in darkness, be a living proof of His glory, a proof of a successful life that does not come from how much money you have in your bank account. A living proof that you are full and complete simply because of the Cross. Because of Jesus, "love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control (Galatians 5:22)" flows thru you. Are we making Christ favorable to mankind?

In every revival, there is a first call to repentance, turning your heart back yo God. An acknowledgment that our hearts have turned hard over the years without realizing. A recognition that we need God to soften our hearts once again. We need God's grace to even stay away from sin, from the lies in the grey lines we put ourselves into without realizing. Breaking of hearts, that God may give us a new unbroken heart. True repentance which leads to allowing God to guard and teach us again. There has to be death before a new birth. If we so desire for the prophecies of a spiritual awakening in Malaysia, we must first recognize that we must be awaken from the spiritual slumber. Therefore let us repent, and prepare ourselves for realignment.

Yesuslah Tuhan

Yesuslah Tuhan yang layak ditinggikan
Layak disembah atas suku-suku bangsa
Dengan darahMu Kau t'lah tebus bangsaku
Genapi Tuhan, FirmanMu atas ne - gri ku
Hatiku rindu melihat kemuliaanMu
Hatiku rindu melihat curahan kuasaMu
Di tanah tercinta negara Malaysia
Ku berdoa Malaysia penuh kemuliaanMu
Malaysia bagi kemuliaanMu
Ya Allah ku nyatakan kemuliaanMu
Ya Allah ku nyatakan curahan kuasaMu
Di tanah tercinta negara Malaysia
Ku berdoa Malaysia penuh kemuliaanMu
Malaysia bagi kemuliaanMu

And the angels sing.

Do you know what it feels like, to be worshiping God with His people, and a choir of heavenly angels, proclaiming "How Great is Our God, sing with me, How Great is our God!" in perfect harmony?

Heaven on earth. Divine.

During my semester break...

let's not talk about what happened before, the exams and stuff, it's boring.

I had 19 days off before the 12th May, when I officially start my practical for the next 5 months.

Here's what kept me busy...

I turned 22 on 26th April

I celebrated 3 times with three different groups of people. Surprise parties, surprisingly never stop after highschool.

Party 1: Uni mates.

It was supposed to be an after exam celebration with my friends, a day packed with food and ice skating, until Peter and Elisha disappeared for long time during lunch...

Clockwise: Michelle, Pete, Rachel, Steph, Ian, Me and Elisha

Pretty shy celebrating.

Party 2: Sunday Morning, My family

Every year, I would request for this particular yam cake, mom says it's the hardest cake for her to do because it requires much effort. Mind you, my mother is an expert in baking, so when she says it's hard, it's hard. nevertheless, it comes only once a year, and this yam cake is always TO DIE FOR. Mother, thank you. I love you.

I think what was cool was that Mom, Dad and Ce sang the birthday song for me. Thanks everyone.

Party 3: At Church, another surprise complot by Mom and Tyfur

I got another cake!

PRESENTS!! are always sweet. Sweet and Thoughtful. I love it.
Thank you so much.
  • A MACBOOK! from Daddy and Mummy
  • a white gold Cross Pendant from my boyfriend, Peter.
  • Notebook, Nailclipper and Hairclips from Elisha (so that I don't have to steal from her anymore)
  • A cloud thinger-majiger from Rachel with a sweet note.
  • Mask from Yune. (I wonder what's wrong with my face)
  • Flask from Tyfur
  • Bangles from the Woks,
  • Some stationery to prepare for internship from Jo, Bait and Jess
  • Angpows from Mums
  • A HANDMADE bag from Michelle. Yes she made the whole thing it for me.
  • A sweet card from Sue and Ce
  • A book from Bait.

Ann's Farewell

This cosy restaurant is Italiannies. Lovely ambience.

Other Birthdays

Tyfur. 25th April

Uncle Nie gave her flowers. so sweet.

And we all prayed for her, God willing, more kids, grandkids fast, just as she wishes, and great grandkids. hahah.

Daddy. 6th May

Dad gets funnier as he ages. I don't really know what is he doing.

Cupcakes Attempt!

Since mom was not around on Friday night, I decided that I should try to see what it's like to live her life, by baking.

I decided to surprise her and make her and grandma some cupcakes for mother's day.

Here's me, all dressed up to bake. And I mixed and match all the necessary ingredients, put it into the cups.

little did I know, cupcakes expands!! and it went over the brink of the cup!

I lay my hands on my cuppies.. Dear God, please dont let it grow any longer.

Kev laughed too much, he couldn't stand it.

After a few modification - cutting the edge out nice and steady, it actually didn't turn out looking so bad. It's going to be covered with frost anyway.

This is the second batch I made. I clearly learnt my lesson.

Clening up wasn't easy especially when it's all buttery and oily. I washed, and washed, and thought it never ends.

I know I looked happy, and contented. It's for the camera.

Alas! my cupcakes! All ready with frost!
Ahh it was well worth. Every effort.

Baking, is therapeutic. you should try baking when you're stressed or in the middle of your exams.

ok, I read too.
  • Men Are From Mars, Women From Venus - John Gray
  • The Old Man and The Sea - Ernest Hemingway
  •  Rumours - Philip Yancey
  • Emma - Jane Austen
and cleaned spring cleaned my room

As I begin to ponder on my life off this blog, I realized that...
it was quite productive-lah, and I'm thankful for every moment.

They come and go, at different points of your life.
Some may be close to you today
then distant tomorrow.
what value is there in friendship,
for all is good, when there's no crisis
only when there's a similarity,
that we connect.

as time passes, we change
we leave a friend
and go to another
the ironic thing about friendship is
we need it to live

so shall we strive,
to be the best friend one can be
to those who are around us
at the very present
and when they leave us,
we wish them the best
and move on.
because someday,
we will leave them too.
