【沒有一天停止愛你】

人常常會陷入一種傷痛的情緒, 像是深陷泥沼無法自拋, 越陷越深. 覺得自己好像被世界遺忘, 但是, 耶穌的愛從來沒有停止過. 當你覺得沒有人在乎你的時候, 當你在黑夜獨自流淚的時候, 祂在你的身邊不住為你禱告祈求, 在你身邊陪你一起哭泣. 祂沒有一天停止愛你....

經過了 你的窗前 一張憔悴的臉
留下了 我的安慰 盼望你會發現
我只想再看見你純真笑臉
而你的心 卻依然在徘徊

你投遞了 你的眼淚 寄向無垠天邊
我留下了 我的眼淚 凝成繁星點點
每夜等你抬頭 望著你的眼
想對你說

我沒有一天停止愛你
沒停止擔憂你的疲憊和傷心
沒有一天想要忘了你
我的真心會永遠和你在一起

Wonderful Carols and Miracles . . .

Wah! Wonderful pictures and testimony of the carolers. I can literally feel the warmth of the carolers from my computer screen loh! Aiya, I wish I was there.

You know some of my friends always say "If you can show me the miracle, then I will believe what you've said!" Errr... shamefully, sometime I seek for miracle as confirmation, too.

But this Christmas, I found new miracle.

I think miracle is a group of some 30+ carolers, young and old, after months of practices and training and life style adjustment, would rush back home from a hard day work then meet up together, knowing that they are not able claim any wages or petrol, still would travel across town and sing to many unknown residents. But yet they continue to do so!

Miracle is group of some 30+ carolers, knowing that they would sing to mostly strangers, where most of them would not pay attention to the songs & sharing, still they are singing about a God that is REAL, but maybe none of them has a physical contact with God before. But yet they continue to do so!

Miracle is group of some 30+ carolers, singing and telling a TRUE historical event / story that has happened at least 2,000 years ago, even though it's so difficult to prove to the strangers of the stories, but yet continue to do so!

That I think, is a miracle from God! This December, it's a Miraculous Christmas after all :- )

It's all about the Cross-Christmas


video


Verse 1:
It's not just about the manger
Where the baby lay
It's not all about the angels
Who sang for him that day
It's not just about the shepherds
Or the bright and shining star
It's not all about the wisemen
Who travelled from afar

Chorus:
It's about the cross
It's about my sin
It's about how Jesus came to be born once
So that we could be born again
It's about the stone
That was rolled away
So that you and I could have real life someday
It's about the cross
It's about the cross

Verse 2:
It's not just about the presents
Underneath the tree
It's not all about the feeling
That the season brings to me
It's not just about coming home
To be with those you love
It's not all about the beauty
In the snow I'm dreaming of

Bridge:
The beginning of the story is wonderful and great
But it's the ending that can save you and that's why we celebrate
It's about the cross
It's about my sin
It's about how Jesus came to be born once
So that we could be born again
It's about God's love
Nailed to a tree
It's about every drop of blood that flowed from Him when it should have been me

It's about the stone
That was rolled away
So that you and I could have real life someday
So that you and I could have real life someday
It's about the cross
It's about the cross

Thanks Giving Week


Christmas season-- great sale--shopping, open house--eating? holiday--sleeping? What will you do?

Two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ was born for him, for her, for you, and for me. Today, we are celebrating Christmas. Do we remember that we are celebrating Jesus’s Birthday? Or, we are so ‘holy’, we are busying to share the good news to others? Give thanks to God during this Christmas season.

”Glory to the most high” I have been in the United States for two years and three months. Not one day God is not with me. Everyday, God is there for me; He is earlier than I am. Studying and working, serving and receiving, and relationship with family and friends, God is there for me.

Having the word that God gave me through Pastor Ong, I am dare to say " I am the blessed one". God says ,"Because you have step out with your faith, I am going to honor your faith." I keep this on my heart everyday, every hour, every minute, and every second. I dare not say that I have great faith in God, but I am very sure as long as I walk on the path that God has provided for me I will be 101% safe.

Few days ago, I had a chance to talk to a friend. Through our conversation, I felt deeper in my heart that my scholarship from my school and fund from a church are a great blessing from God. Without God's great power, I will not get all these.

Last week, I had five exams in three days. I was very nervous and depressed because I needed to keep a good GPA. I could not do anything other than trusting in God and studying. I claimed God's words everyday before I started my studying and exams. This gave me a relax exam week. One more time, “Glory to the most high” I got 5 As and one HUGE ‘C’ hehe,,,, (guess what? It is Christian doctrine that I got a C. malu LoL)

Ok, back to serious. Recently, I had been facing relationship problems. God put two no result relationship problems in my life. One hurt me deeply, but one was not. During this period, I was really down. I asked God why He allowed these happened to me. I felt that I was treated unfairly. I talked to God that one case was enough. Why two? I was kinda angry with God, but I dared not. However, I was having cold war with God, I rejected to pray and ask God to take away the hurt. I rejected to receive the healing from Him. GOD WON. Through sharing with friends, I had the answer. They were test, which allowed me to advance to the next grade of my spiritual life class. The most awesome was the night that I decided not to allow myself to live in the pity party world, God said to me, “Stand up, and raise your head because your redemption is drawing near.” Luke 21:28.

P/S miss you’ll very much,,,,and love you’ll always

圣诞节的来源

曾几何时,圣诞节有圣诞树,圣诞老人,圣诞女人!? 圣诞小孩,圣诞巧克力,吃火鸡。好像没有多少人知道这种种的来源。不管什么,但是有一些事是我确定的是Christmas 肯定是跟Christ 有关,那如果我们问为何有圣诞,就要问谁是Christ了.究竟这Christ 基督跟我们又有什么关系呢?他曾经在人的历史上做过些什么,使到全世界的人,无论是什么种族,肤色,语言的人都会来庆祝圣诞节呢?

Christ 原来就是基督耶稣,曾经大约两千年前,降生在人的历史里,过了短短的33年半的岁月,就被钉死十字架上,拯救世人的罪,使人藉他得救。这我相信你听过吧!但是你又知道不知道他的诞生又遭受当时的最高权力的人猛烈的追杀。根据圣经所说,当时的王就是希律王,听说有一个犹太人的王要诞生在犹大的伯利恒城里。这王深深的感受到身份地位受到威胁,所以他想尽办法要赶尽杀绝,要把这将来的犹太人王干掉。起先有东方博士来到耶路撒冷寻找耶稣,他们是要来朝拜他,但是希律王召博士来叫他们找到耶稣时,要来通知他,好让希律王也来拜他,其实,希律是要除掉这心腹之患,让他可以心安理得。所幸博士在梦中被主指示不要去见希律,即他们就从别的路回去了。希律见自己被博士愚弄后,大发雷霆,一气之下,既然将伯利恒城内外两岁以下的婴孩杀尽。好一个暴君!请问你有没有感受到当时每一个死婴的父母的悲哀,请问你有没有听见当时街头巷尾每一家都有号啕大哭, 每家都在沮丧哀吊,没有人来安慰,因家家都在办丧事。这就应验了大约2500年前耶利米先知所预言的:在拉玛听见号啕大哭的声音,拉结哭她儿女,不肯受安慰,因为他们都不在了。(耶31:15).在这时候,神奇的一件事就是,堂堂的一个罗马帝国君王竟然杀不死一位小小的婴孩。上帝保守了耶稣基督,向其父约瑟梦中显现,叫他们逃往埃及,直到希律死后,才回到加利利。

耶稣基督,一生短短的33年半,从来没有为自己写过任何著作,但今天最畅销的书——圣经在宣传他。耶稣一生没有为自己写过歌曲,但是今天上万首诗歌是为耶稣写,为他而唱,耶稣没有在人生中作过艺术作品。但是今天许多伟大的雕刻家画家,为耶稣留下了伟大的艺术创作,耶稣没有为自己设立家室。当今他确实是我们每一家的主。他在世上没有家产事业,但是今天天上地下都在主耶稣的手中。

温馨的圣诞节

荣美的救主 Beautiful Sa...


台北的圣诞节
天空不下雪
但是我感觉到一种爱的力量
从天那端 开始蔓延
我知道那是你

全世界的盼望
聚在你身上
从永远到永远
都要传唱
你的降生是为了我
是为了我们
La...la...la......

当“台北”这两个字被改成“温馨”时,唱起来真的是别有一番滋味。马来西亚的圣诞节是不下雪的,但我们的圣诞节却是温馨无比,充满爱在当中。无论你在马来西亚的那一端,这一种爱及温馨的感觉都在蔓延着,它之所以蔓延就只因为大家都在欢庆耶稣基督的诞生。他的降生带给全世界的人一件最美的礼物,借着他我们能够得着盼望,从永远到永远,从亘古直到永远。这份爱永不改变,这世界仍然会继续传唱耶稣基督的降生,因他的降生是为了你和我的生命。

看见小小的司芫也一样与我们一起开口来到唱这首歌,让我感触极深。我在想,在每一年的圣诞的季节里,全世界的人,无论男女老少,不管相信不相信耶稣基督的降生都好,我们都会庆祝圣诞节。就在这温馨的圣诞节,让我们把那爱的感觉从天的这一端传唱下去,让它蔓延到世界的地极,让世界上的每一个角落的每一个族群当中的每一个人都能够得到这份爱。

The Candy Cane拐棍糖

The candy cane begins with a stick of white candy. The white symbolizes the purity of the Christmas season. Red stripes are for the blood shed by Christ on the cross so that we may have eternal life.
The candy cane is formed into a "J" to represent the precious name of Jesus. It can also represent the staff of the Good Shepherd. Its hard consistency represents the Solid Rock, the foundation of the church, and the firmness of the promises of God.

拐棍糖开始的时候只是根白色的棍状糖果。白色象征着圣诞季节的纯净无瑕。糖果上的红色条纹是基督流在十字架上的鲜血,借此我们才能得到天堂里的永生。拐棍糖做成字母“J”形,代表的就是“耶酥”的名字首写字母。它同时也代表那位好牧人(即基督)的手杖。糖的坚固粘性代表坚定的团结,这是教会的基石,以及上帝允诺的稳固。

王菀之 : 「我以基督為傲!」 生命影響生命 (完结篇)


親近神便能經歷神的同在

Q : 你信了耶穌後,生命可有改變?

A :「我在基督教家庭出生,所以我由小到大都是信耶穌的。試過因為懶惰,沒去親近神,以致與神的關係愈來愈遠;但就未試過由不信變為相信;因為我從小就相信。現在工作真的很忙,為了逼自己返教會,我曾當過一年多的司琴,但當司琴也得認真,不能『甩底』的,否則會影響敬拜,所以後來也放棄了,與神也愈來愈疏遠,到自己有工作壓力,愈來愈煩躁,我才意識到自己需要神。感謝神,我身邊的基督徒會在有需要時為我祈禱。其實我自己也未停止過祈禱,只是在禱告中,未必都願意向上帝敞開心靈!有時,我甚至會避開上帝,明知自己做錯了,卻故意迴避,不向神說,不將煩惱交託給神,不相信神會幫助我解決問題、勝過問題,我只是表面在祈禱,但心門卻關上,拒絕讓上帝幫助;到我最不開心、最多挫折的時候,我打開心門,真的把自己的重擔和不開心,一一誠實地告訴上帝,這時,便經歷到神聽禱告、神的同在!」

Q : 你願意神今後如何使用你?

A :「我也很想知道我這個人可以有甚麼貢獻!(笑)我希望在愈來愈多人認同自己、愈來愈多人願意聽自己說話的同時,我也有愈來愈多的機會將福音傳揚開去!」

「神愛世人,甚至將他的獨生子賜給他們,叫一切信他的,不致滅亡,反得永生。因為神差他的兒子降世,不是要定世人的罪,乃是要叫世人因他得救。信他的人,不被定罪;不信的人,罪已經定了,因為他不信神獨生子的名。」約翰福音3章16-18節

Navidad


嗨,很久没有在这里出现了,所以现在就献上我这早到的祝福,祝大家圣诞节快乐!Merry Christmas!!!

王菀之 - 重見家圓(2007 向生命致敬院線 主題曲)

看见家园 (向生命致敬院線 主題曲)...

鬧市之中 充滿耀眼的霓虹 照不穿心底一片空
靜悄的風 吹過落泊的倦容 像低聲說著 我的心很痛

在這屋內 只見恨怨的裂縫 愛彷彿消失磚瓦中
萬里天地 可會遇見一面容 令心窩熾熱再不冰凍

然後在某天 多驚喜的那天
我在深淵裡找到你 毋用在黑夜留連
全賴你的出現 不再埋怨孤單
不再自憐 伴著我一生不變遷

在這屋內 相見但卻不說話 我的家怎麼不似家
望向窗外 只見倦透的落霞 哪一天我們再不需吵架

然後在某天 多驚喜的那天
我在深淵裡找到你 毋用在黑夜留連
全賴你的出現 不再埋怨孤單 不再自憐
興奮未能言 一生都給改變

多驚喜的哪天 往日遭擊碎的破鏡 能在今日重圓
重拾愛的希望 流浪的心終見到 家的溫暖教我眷戀

王菀之 : 「我以基督為傲!」 生命影響生命


王菀之,創作歌手,2000年度CASH流行曲創作大賽冠軍;2006十大中文金曲頒獎典禮CASH最佳唱作歌手;2007北京音樂風雲榜頒獎盛典最佳女歌手(粵語)。「真証傳播」07年榮譽青年大使。

常言道:娛樂圈是個大染缸。王菀之作為一個虔誠的基督徒,又是「上位」甚快的新一代唱作人,她可有遇過試探?伴隨社會道德標準下降,王菀之如何潔身自愛?她對時下青年人又有何忠告?

不看得失珍惜自己所有

覺得娛樂圈複雜嗎?「其實也沒想像般複雜。行內有很多基督徒,特別是做音樂的,好像我之前三張唱片的監製馮漢銘,好像張敬軒、金培達等,都是基督徒,圈中基督徒多了,力量大了,叫我毋須做一些神不喜悅的事,平時唱歌、錄音、夾Band都是很開心的,當中不但沒有試探,反叫我很想團結起一班基督徒音樂人,去辦一些大型的福音音樂會。」

時下很多年輕人書讀得不好,很有挫折感,你怎樣勉勵他們?「其實,讀書只是一個過程,現在書讀得不好,並不代表將來便沒有前途,相反,現在書讀得好,將來也不一定出人頭地;人生每一階段都會陸續出現不同的問題,神會在不同的階段給我們不同的功課,當中有起有落,有苦有甜,如果現在年輕力壯,正值最具活力的時候,在學業中,遇到一點挫折,便視之為世界末日,那麼,又怎能面對將來的挑戰呢?各人有各人之所長,就算書讀得不好,社會仍有很多用得著你的地方,何不給自己一個機會?別放棄自己,別浪費自己,別只著眼於所失的,要珍惜自己所擁有的!」

「你們所遇見的試探,無非是人所能受的。神是信實的,必不叫你們受試探過於所能受的;在受試探的時候,總要給你們開一條出路,叫你們能忍受得住。」哥林多前書10章13節
