Riches

And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
- Philippians 4:19 (AMP)

I was playing the song 'Complete' for my Believer Music guitar class, and I came upon this verse. Interestingly, nowadays, whenever I search for verses online, I will look at other translations as well. And I like the translation of this verse provided by the Amplified Bible. The word 'liberally' expresses more than the word 'freely', and it explains God's grace and love quite adequately. It implies a sense of no limit for His giving. And indeed, I guess it's true, or at least I experienced and I know it's true.

Give praise to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He has blessed us with every spiritual blessing. Those blessings come from the heavenly world. They belong to us because we belong to Christ.
- Ephesians 1:3 (NIRV)

Finding the grace of Jesus

I just read a newspaper article recently. A university student in Thailand got herself gang raped, and she contacted AIDS as a result of the incident... and in order to get revenge, she set herself up in the streets and began sleeping with guys all over the place... and they got infected with the HIV...

I was shocked by the news, and it's not very often that I got shock out of the sizzly news in the nighttime newspaper. It sets me thinking about the whole incident. A sin was committed to a girl and in turns led to more sins and sufferings. One might be even be tempted to think, where is God in the end? Where is He when all these happen?

I can only turn to the grace of Jesus. The answer that I found comes from the grace and mercy that was shown on the cross. It's not an easy way out, but it's the answer that I found at the first instance. In times like this we can only hold on to the grace of God. I believe that this girl needs no condemnation, she needs grace. The 60 plus gu…

First day of school

I'm currently suffering from a severe writer's block... maybe it's cos of the increased involvement in ministry that I suddenly found my own thoughts all jumbled up...

Anyway, it's the first day of school, and I'm now at the usual place, typing a usual post. As usual, I'm slacking around and since I haven't even attended my first lesson yet, I can afford the time to post some bo liao post.

There is nothing I can write here, cos there is nothing happening yet. After all, school has just started and it's only the first day of school. But definitely excited over what God can do over the next 13 weeks. Even now, I'm also looking forward to all my projects, I'm also looking forward to Christmas also... with the Christmas carolling.

Till next time

School restarting soon

And now, I shall update my readers on the modules I have gotten for this semester:

HY2237 - 1 pt
HY3241 - 1 pt
MNO2311 - 1636 pt
TR3002 - 1 pt

I spent more points bidding for one module than I ever spent on bidding for the past 4 semesters. And somemore, it's a module I'm planning to S/U. And in case you are wondering, I'm only doing 4 modules this semester, cos HY4207 is still far far away from my grasp. So I decided to take 4 only and apply for a seven and a half month iLead internship next sem, which will allow me to clock 16 MCs. Somemore, since the internship allows me to take off to take modules in school, I will be able to make up for the lost modules.

And so, as it turns out, unless God gives me HY4207, I'm stuck with 4 modules, and it will mean that I will have only 3 modules to worry about, with 2 final papers to fight for... meaning a slack semester? I dun know... maybe God has a plan for me. Maybe... it may turn out that I need to extend my time in NUS...like YA…

Watch these III

I like this video quite a lot. And the song too.



This is one song that I have kept on singing and singing since I went for FOP.

Festival of Praise

The last weekend was the the weekend of FOP. This year we have Delirious? and Don Moen down to lead the praise and worship. And we have Phil Pringle to preach the Word of God to us. I attended the friday and the sunday session, cos it was too good.

Delirious? is simply fabulous, and it can be seen that they are really anointed by God to administer to His people through their music. It goes the same for Don Moen. The atmosphere was simply fantastic. I was truly administered by God's presence in the indoor stadium.

Phil Pringle is perhaps one of the better preachers that I have seen so far. His sharing of God's Word really challenged my own perspective of God's kingdom and caused me to rethink of my own walk with God. It has been truly a Spirit-led preaching from him. More will come as I proceed to digest my thoughts about his preaching and attempt to write them down in this blog.

Overall, I'm glad that Ben decided to join me on Friday... cos my entire cg did not turn up…

Living as a student: Vision II

This is slight continuation to the post which I have written a few weeks back.

Basically an additional reason why vision is important as a student. You know, one of the most sensational things on earth is a vision from God, and most of the Old Testament prophets saw what they were saying before they actually said it. According to Phil Pringle, vision ignites fire in our spirit. It is imperative as a children of God to be able to see the road that God wants us to see. Let's put it this way, often we are the most aimless people on earth when we dun have a vision. As a Christian who happens to be a student in NUS, it is even more dangerous, as it will impede our capability to serve God at the student level. Being exposed to so many different philosophies and weird theories, it is necessary for God's people in school to constantly be on fire for Him.

Vision ignites the fire.

The girl with cancer

There was this little girl. She was struck down with cervical cancer, at the terminal stage. But her parents were not there... they were not there... and no one was there. She was lying in the hospital, waiting to die, enduring the physical pain caused by the cancer cells, and the loneliness.

It was not known how long has she been lying there. But day in day out, there was only nurses going into her room. There seem no love around, and she was really lonely. She didn't understand why, but she yearns for love.

Then one day, a hand stretched out to her. There was this man who offered his hand for her to hold on to. She held his hand. For the first time, she felt warmth and comfort coming from that hand, she felt safe, and she felt protected. Most importantly, she felt loved. It was the moment that no words can describe and not even the pain she's experiencing can take away the warmth, the love, the comfort. She held on tight, and didn't want to let go.

Then not long after, t…
