word of wisdom
when i check my email this morning.. so happened today's kenneth copeland's devotion was on Wisdom of God. Just as i was thinking about wisdom of god, unexpectedly, he's also talking about it.
the wise King Solomon's says, "Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. and in all your getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she will promote you; She will bring you honor, when you embrace her. She will place on your head an ornament of grace; a crown of glory she will deliver to you." (Proverbs 4:7-9)
ooo.. god's word is so cool!
check this out!
once again, i'm back blogging after a short break. back in s'pore now. just ended my 2week hospital posting. next monday, i'll be starting my new semester. and it'll also be my final year. still remember the day, i was deciding whether i should come over here to do nursing, or stay in UKM. I think i only took a day or 2 to make that decision to come over.
I didn't start off very well here. i was alone. Chee Soon was the only one i knew well. and I had culture shock la. Although it was just across the causeway, people here are different. I did sounded very much like a singaporean when i speak english. But still, i found it hard to relate to people here.
then came this point, i thought i had made the wrong decision. I was kinda down. I didn't like the lifestyle. I was tired of taking the public bus and trains, the long hours spent travelling. I couldn't get along with some people. And i remembered G shyn droppin me this sms. He said there's no such as a bad decision in god's eyes. God can turn your bad decision into a good one if u truly seek him. When i saw that, i was really relief and i felt the peace. And I believed that. My future is in His hands, and He promised to give me a good future and a Hope.
I'm so blessed to have a friend like jyh shyn who has such godly wisdom. Godly wisdom is something really important we need to acquire. it's so that we won't worry over unnecessary things, and it helps us flow and walk with God. Thanks be to god. Today, Christ has become for us the wisdom of God. Soloman ask for it, and he became the most prosperous man on earth. i realize it's important to build kingdom friendships. Bibles says, the more u mix with ppl with godly wisdom, the more wiser u will be. I thank god that friends that i had, especially christian friends. infact, all along the closest ppl i have, are ppl i knew in church.
But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us the wisdom of God -- and righteousness and sanctification and redemption -- (1 cor 1:30)
looking back at my life here, i guess i've truly been blessed. so blessed! i've never enjoyed being a christian so much. Never enjoyed going church so much, just to receive to word of God. The more i find out about the things of god, the more i'm set free. The more i know how much god loves me, the more i love Him. Loving God is no more a problem like it used to be. It's no more a strife, but a joy. It's not about me loving Him, it's about His love for me. I love being a christian. I love being a child of God. Good things happen when u know God loves u!
I actually plan to write down i what i had experince during the holidays, but ended something else. hee...i went with the flow. I guess i'll write about it next time.
When i collected my clinical diary from the nurse clinician today, she said to me that she was very encourage to see me in the ward. She said she enjoyes seeing me caring for the patients. She looks forward to see me coming back again to her ward. Truly, i was very encourage by her words. lately, i've been very afraid of going for postings. My lecturers find me very weak and i always come home with a very low score. But i'm very encourage today. I'm looking forward to the next posting.
althought i might have made a bad decision in the first place, i might have been foolish, but the one inside of me who is greater, is in control!!! hee... He always turns the bad to good...He became poor for me on the cross, so that i can be rich...He bore the stripes, so that i could be healed... He took my sins, i take his righteousness...He took my condemnation, so i'd never ever be condemned...
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God... (romans 8:28)
..He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ; (phil 1:6)
Daddy God, thanks for giving me a good life... a life in Christ Jesus! I'm so blessed b'cos of u, Jesus!
Jaime wanted a postcard, so i went to looked for one. While sitting at my desk writing, i got stuck, i didn't know what to write. So, i went to see the postcards that ppl had sent me over the years. See if i could copy some nice phases.
And i came across this.. till today, it encourages and inspires me everytime i read it. Still my favourite!
Here's how it goes.
Hi Greetings from Austria. Try playing this score i compose :) Nolar, actually it's from Mozart I think! Well, Austria is quiet cool lar although the weather has been a bit hot. I hope everything in Ipoh is alright especially your cell group, remember to keep the fire burning 4 god. Thanks 4 being such a GREAT fren to me through the year and don't worry so much lar, god sure has great plans 4 u, just have faith! And be yourself. People like you for you.
Anyway, study hard and don't forget me. Hehehe (just kidding)
Hav fun, Jia.
Hope of glory
Watched a dvd this afternoon. Bridget Jones. Kinda nice, as i've always liked romantic comedys. Afterall, i guess it's part of the process to feel jeolous or insecure in a relationship. Trust is still the main ingredient for relationship to go on, i think!
Hmm.. don't know how mine will be when i have my first one. Hopefully i can skip that part!
Just as i've been thinking much about the future lately. The last time i attended church, pastor was preaching about this mystery "christ in you, the hope of glory". Didn't really understand, what was this mystery & 'Hope' thing was about.
To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. (Col 1:27)
Yesterday Cindy (my NYP Cg leader) was sharing to me about what pastor was preaching on Sunday. Pastor preached on "Rejoicing in the Lord!". Why? b'cos Christ in us, the hope of glory. She said our hope is not as the world says. The world says the higher your expectation, the higher your dissapointment. But guess what God says. It's the opposite.
For surely you have a future ahead of you; your hope will not be dissapointed. (Proverbs 23:18)
Hope, is positive expectation of good things happening in Christ. God says raise your hopes high, because His hope does not dissapoint! We can all hope for big things in the Lord, and also expect good things coming our way! Simply b'cos He loves us!!!
Ooo.. I love this! Daddy God, i hope for a pree...&...&... HeeHEE! better not write it here lar! It's between me and God anyway! =] Can't wait to get the tape, and listen to it again and again till i get the full revalation about this Hope!
Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. (Romans 5:1-5)
Once again, i'm back blogging (after a very long while).
Grace to u!
well, i've been travelling lots lately since my 1 month break started. singapore - ipoh - kl - ipoh - langkawi - ipoh.. and next week - kl again - then ipoh - and lastly s'pore. Kinda sick with travelling. Anyway, it's really nice to be back Home.
Started off with a 5day tour for J'me in ipoh. I guess it turn out pretty well. She enjoyed the trip.. and enjoyed hosting her too! It was my very 1st time bring a fren back.. i'm amaze how generously nice my frens and family were to her. In a way, i felt really blessed seeing her blessed! i remember the day when she said she's coming along with me to ipoh, deep down i was worried how will it go about. There was nothing much i could give. But god was great, He just provided everything. Thanks Daddy God!
Just got back from a holiday trip to Langkawi. It was nice hanging out once again with my good old buddies fr church. Had lots of activities there.. speed boat ride, banana boat, beautiful beaches, island hopping, eagles too, cheap liquor! i liked the moment when a few of us started to sing, and later on the rest join in.. it was an unplanned, free flow worship. i felt we were together in 1 spirit. I felt many of us were refreshed, and our spirits renewed.
i'm really amaze how god takes care of his children. I've heard lots of stories lately.. how god turns their situation ard for good.. finances, exam resutls, relationships.. i'm so amaze how Wonderful my God and my King is. Deep down i'm so glad i've got Him. He loves me so much. He gives me everything i need. He is for me, he's not against me. He protects me, heals me, covers me with his grace.
Lately i've been thinking lots about the future. Probably i was too free. Worries set in everytime i think about. thoughts of Not sure if i'll like my job as a nurse, not sure if i'll ever get married, not sure if i'll grow old alone... etc. It's always been the same old thing i've always worried about. hehe!! But i've improved, I've learn to let go of my finances, i've learn to trust god in it. Slowly, i'll let go of everything.. and let him take charge.
No idea how's life gonna be. All i know it's gonna be good.. wonderful.. exciting.. lovely.. with u Daddy God!
Grace be with u!
it's been 4 days of attachment so far in the pediatric ward. So far so good. 16 more attachment days to go. After a long 1 month in break back in Ipoh, I'm now back in this fast-pace city of Singapore.
The break i had was awesome. Although i didn't get to go youth camp, won't get to be home for x'mas... It's ok. I was really blessed being able to hang out with old-time friends in ipoh. It built up my spirit hanging out with these ppl, seeing how God was in their life and hearing from them the greatness of God. This just made me wanna be close to God. Cos i'm so jealous about the amazing things that happen to them.
I just wanna ground myself in the word of God, built my faith up, and see God do wonders. I wanna be sensitive to the voice of God, leading me in every step of the way.
There this area in my life that i had great fear since my stay in S'pore, finances. I always worry about it. I was consistant on tithing, worrying that i won't hav enough to spend. I'd do all sorts of things just to save on 10cents. Although i had always knew about god would provide for all my needs, not just that but bless more that i could ever contain.. but i still worry. I didn't like this sorta lifestyle. It's just awful.
Just now, i was just spending in the word, and worshipping. Suddenly i just presense again around me, simply telling not to worry, and just trust in Him. & i realize this has been the one thing that God has been telling me thru out the years.. even during my early day in MYF. Everytime i went for a camp or a prayer meeting or christian gathering.. that has always been the message.. do not worry, Trust in Me.
Lord, i just thank you for Your Great love for me. Today, i want you to be in every compartment of mylife. Especially, about my finances (at this point of time). I want to trust u fully in it, for you my provider. I thank you that you've blessed abundantly in all areas of my life. My future, my health, and my family are in your hands. Thank you for keeping in your loving arms. I love you, lord.
phew! first time blogging. didn't know how to go about this, but finally took up the courage to start. special thankS to jaIMe who got me started and set this up for me. Well, here i am.. Blogging!
