自有永有的神, 也有生日


看到了宣轩的贴子, 让我想起在我生日的那一天, 我的好太太和女儿在我进家门的时候叫我闭上眼睛. 带着摸索的我到了桌前, 给了我这个surprise ! 是我太太特地为我而做的生日蛋糕.

Wah, 我活这么大, 第一次收到这么重的礼物, 我想一定是付出了很多的时间和心思.

我在想, 圣诞节是纪念耶稣的降生日.
自有永有的神, 也让自己有道成肉身的生日纪念日,
让祂放宝座, 为我这不值得这么做的人, 受尽了最极端的侮辱和离弃.

如此的爱恩典祂尚且为我付出, 还有什么祂不肯为我做的呢 ?

谁的生日?


现今的社会,已经忘了圣诞节的真正意义。我们每一年都在庆祝圣诞节,我们是否还记得圣诞节的意义呢?不说基督徒记不记得当中的意义,就算记得,我们很多时候都只因为是教会的活动而有所庆祝!我们与朋友交换礼物,彼此赠送礼物;上帝也把他的独生儿子送给我们了,那我们又以什么礼物与上帝交换呢?

WoW ! ! ! God is Awesome


God always gives at the Last “Perfect” minute.
It is snowing at Houston. This is my first time playing snow ball ,,,heheeh. Praise God!!!!!
If you have known me for long enough, you will know that I do not like last minute. For the past five months, God has been challenging me to wait for His last “Perfect” minute. This was not easy for me. My faith went up and down. Until a point, I let go of everything and surrendered them to God. I no longer fought for myself with my own strength, but God. Then I passed my two tests at the very last minute. Moreover, God has blessed me abundantly.

I spent my first month of summer to study musicology cumulative exam. This is an important exam. If I did not pass this exam, I would need to take this class at the following semester, which meant I needed to spend more time and money. I took the exam and I did not pass because I did not take this class at my university. Bur I transferred my credit hours from Malaysia and I had forgotten a lot of them. On the third month of summer, I studied it again. This time I asked for a friend’s help and prayed real hard to pass it. I took the exam at the last day of summer and I passed it with God’s strength.

After this exam, I still had another exam to pass, which was THEA—Texas Higher Education Assessment. I spent my second month of summer to study for the test. I did not pass all the three sections. I kept on taking the test. After a few attempts, I finally passed the test at the last week of Fall Semester. If I did not pass this test, the following semester, I could not continue my study. Praise God for another blessing.

About two months ago, my car broke down in a flood. At Houston, without a car seems like without a pair of leg, especially for me, I go around to teach. My old car had been giving me many troubles; however, each time God provided the money I needed for repairs. This time, the water went into the car engine. The mechanic told me that 70% was gone. I was so disappointed. Since the time my car broke down to the time I got a new car, I saw God was providing. My car broke down after my lesson and not far away from my student’s house. I called them. My student’s parents came to help. While I was waiting for them to come over, the neighborhood residents helped me to push my car to the side. When my student’s parent arrived, they call AAA, an insurance company, to tow my car to their place, it was free, so that the next morning the daddy could repair my car. But it did not work; we towed it to the garage to fix it. I called my pastor on that Friday and let him know and asked for suggestion. I went to Impact, and my church members prayed for me. The next morning, my pastor called me and told me that they were going to give me their Toyota Camary, 1998, for free because they just bought a new car. A week latter my car was fixed with $200. Two weeks latter my car was sold for $700. Praise God for all the good things He has done for me. Through the whole process, I saw how our God love me so much.

I am going to end at here with a story. When you are reading the story, you are free to use your creativity to imagine a picture with me.

Once upon a time, there was a boyish princes was so excited to go for hiking. She had all her hiking gears ready a night before and woke up early in the morning and happily went for her hiking. During her path, she enjoyed and praised God for His creatures. Then she saw a beautiful view, and she was so excited. Quickly, she ran to the cliff of the mountain to have a better view. Carelessly, she kicked on a stone and fell. She tried to catch any thing that she could. She was managed to catch on a few small branches, but they were not strong enough to support his weigh. Finally, she was able to catch on a bigger branch. So she held on the branch, at the same time she shouted for help. Time passed by, no one came to help. Suddenly, she heard a voice. “My beautiful princes, let go your hand and trust in Me.” Princes. “Who is this?” God, “ I am your Heavenly Father. Do not doubt! Trust in me! Let go of your hand. I will reach out My hand to catch you.” Princes, “But,,, but,,,,,, God, this is impossible, I can’t see You. Where are You?” God, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Princes, “Ok God! I trust in You. I surrender everything to You. Ai-Chin has no strength to go through this anymore. Ai-Chin is going to let go of her hand and trust that You will reach out Your hand for her. Ai-Chin is going to close her eyes, and fall on Your comfortable arms.”
This is who I was for the past few months. Although it was really tough and challenge, with God’s strength I survive.

Praise God for His love and faithfulness.

生命气息



祢是我神 如此靠近 就像我的氣息
我全所有 是祢所造 祢托住我生命
祢的榮美 吸引我心 主我更深愛祢

主向我吹氣 親愛聖靈
求充滿我的生命
隱藏祢蔭庇下 停留祢同在裡
我渴慕認識祢

祢的旋律 佔據我心 一生歌唱不停
我這一生 有祢同在 我心不再畏懼
祢的榮美 吸引我心 主我更深愛祢

主向我吹氣 親愛聖靈
求充滿我的生命

我只渴慕祢

生命中每一天 我要等候祢
在祢的同在裡 我得更新
生命中每一刻 都要敬拜祢
祢已潔淨我心我生命
活水江河湧流不停

2009年快要结束了,我以这首诗歌作为我的祷告,我祷告说:

主啊,你向我们每一个人吹一口新的气息,让我们的生命能够被神托住,我们行事为人能够荣耀你的名字,而不至于羞辱你的名。主啊,你的气息来到更新我们里面的灵,让我们能够再次为主你火热起来,继续为主你前进!虽然我们在奔跑天路的时候有困苦疲倦的时候,但是主啊,当我们停留依偎在你的同在里的时候,我们必然会从你那里得着新力量,重新如鹰展翅!主啊,就让你的气息来到洗净我们内心一切的污秽,让你那活水的江河能够从我们里面不断地涌流出来!主啊,我宣告说我们得着你那新的气息,我们的生命要被你翻转过来的,明年是我们丰收的一年!感谢主,奉主耶稣的名字祷告,阿门!

Crossroad 在年底

转眼间又到了年底了. 好像感觉过得很快?
是我自己没在留意? 还是太过专注在其他事情?

Some family things, company and also ministry things has keep my mind busy enough. All these things required a lot of my attention and mental-power, sometimes I also don't know what to do. I noticed I'm no longer pressure-immune like I used to think I was. At least my stomach told me that fact, 'it' complaints already.

Recently I was very distracted, and unable to focus really well on exercising plans many occasions in the past few months. Felt like things out of control, lost of direction(s), feeling very helpless in fact. I noticed I
seldom feel that way, I noticed I was usually very confident in handling things of my own.

Well, what can I say, God is real and I'm almost 100% sure by now that He really cares for my growth, as a servant and at the same time as a leader. It's kind of complicated emotions. On one hand, I should be more "put down hard" (放心) cause He has plans for me. On the other hand, I'm also taking on my new frontier newer path way for my career, family and ministry, you know, it's dark and scary out there in the new frontier.

I certainly hope that God will be brighter that I can imagine in the dark.

What's important is, I am beginning to believe that He is.

感恩

现在,我觉得我能够上网真的很感恩!我已经很久没有这样美好的感觉,能够在晚上写部落格,这是我已经很久都没有的感觉!我在家里上网,不是自己的电脑,但是感恩朋友借我电脑!这个朋友,给我的感觉就像实在KL的时候的丽环与心蕙!我现在是与一对姐妹一起住,妹妹有家庭了,所以他们睡一间房,另一间就是我和姐姐(晓凤)一起睡!他们hometown的家就在我阿姨家的隔壁,所以我很早就已经认识他们了!
我平时上班是妹妹载我,然后星期天早上5点多我要出门去新加坡,就是晓凤载我出门!晓凤对我真的很好,好到一个地步我有时候会觉得很不好意思!但真的感谢神,若不是上帝的引领,我相信我今天已经回去KL量地了!

在报告一个坏消息, 我的“仔仔”死了!伤心难过总会有!当我收到阿姨的短讯时,我的眼泪都飙了出来,还吓倒朋友呢!!哈哈。。。过后第二天当朋友问起的时候,我的眼泪还是忍不住地在眼眶中打滚!但还好,过后也比较好了!
在这里的工作,服事都很忙碌,每一天开工之前都会有晨祷,我相信这应该是每一间教会都会的吧!(马强,是吗?)但我不敢说我跟神已经很亲近了啦!!!!我相信无论我们在那里上班都好,我们每一天早晨都要向上帝支取力量,好让我们能够靠着神来到度过我们的每一天!
好啦,如果还有机会的话,我会再写多一些!!!

It's been a while

It's been a while since we have this blog and it's receiving relatively good respond from people who knows us. Thank God for each and everyone.

We used to have 2 constant 'updater' to help posting to make the variety of this blog, and by God's grace despite everyone busy schedule, they are still willing to contribute to the content, so as the others active such as Ai Chin, How Giong, Hui Theng, Chii Chii etc.

I once dream of a place where many Christian can come together and live as if a heaven on earth, then I realised that was only a fantasy, probably will have to wait till the real heaven for that version. Well, even the Jesus follower has human imperfection.

Then I dream of having a cyber place where many Jesus follower can come together and share their life exciting moments, testimonies and really touching photos in one spot. Then this blog thing was being brought up to me and I noticed it is possible at all.

Unfortunately, then life is fill with busy schedule too... and also I understand not everyone is very 'cyber', including myself. So now I noticed our blog is actually visited by mostly non-Metro member in stead.

Wait wait... this is not sounding like we are going to close this down :- )

This, will remain a sharing spot for those who wish to share their thanksgiving to God.

It will be a place where you are too shy to share testimony to glorify God during prayer meeting.
It will be a place where you feel least important to give God the glory during watch night service.
It will be a place for our sisters like Hui Then & Ai Chin who can still be very near, yet very far.
It will be a place for those who suddenly feel like needing to read passage of encouragement.

Overall, I hope this is going to be a place for you :-)

I love to see God's people together, be it in cell, sunday or here.

See you around, friend.

新闻快报-慧婷专署电台

其实我有想过离开后就不再写这个部落格了,但是当我这样想的时候就有人跑来问我会不会继续写!但那时也不知道为什么很快的答复说我会继续!

其实从一开始,interview到现在开始工作几个星期了,我都挺感恩的。

当我在做选择的时候,我不曾感到彷徨,我不会在要走和不要走之间挣扎,感觉上我已经很肯定这是上帝的带领,我一定会去!当父母生气的时候,哥哥问了我一句“难道你就不可以迁就一下不去吗?”那时候的我不知道该如何回答他!我好爱我的父母,但我更清楚这是我要走的路!虽然心中有很多的不舍,知道自己在往后的日子有很多东西需要重新地适应,但是仍然相信上帝在我身边与我一起走,再难,再大的风浪我也不怕!

从我interview到我离开KL,整个过程不到一个月!我顺利地interview,上司们答应让我给两个星期的notice之后就离开,过后丽环也把房间租下来,我也肯定拿到我想要的薪金,我要搬的东西都搬到Johor,这一切都很顺利,我知道这一切不是巧合,乃是上帝一早已经安排好的!
我一到Johor,什么重要文件都没带,只有一张I.C就可以做passport了,过后还能够在一个人生地不熟的地方搭巴士回到住的地方!就在那个星期天,第一次用passport,第一次出国。这一切真的太顺利了,一切我觉得不可能的事情都成就了!

感谢神,我觉得上帝非常恩待我,在之前的机构,我有很好的上司兼朋友。在这里,我也有很好的上司。在这段日子里头,我起床休息的时间都需要调整,尤其是星期天要出新加坡的时候,我需要5点就起床了,过后回到来马来西亚已经是2,3点了!平时的工作天就还好,只是有时候小组,或是教会的一些培训时,往往会到家已经是11点多,在冲个凉已经12点多了!以前我能够睡到早上9点多才起床上班,但是现在我7.30就要起床了,一切都在适应中,身体很累,但是有上帝的爱环绕着我,我再累的身体在工作的时候都变得精神了!

我现在暂时住在朋友的家,所以我把hamster“仔仔”暂时放在阿姨的家,让表妹们替我照顾!我才把仔仔放在阿姨家的第二天就接到一个坏消息。。。。。

仔仔不见了!!!!!

听到这个消息的时候,挺伤心的,但是却不知道该怎样,唯有祷告说他能够在他饿的时候,自己跑回出来!我们也作了最坏的打算,就是他已经被狗狗或猫猫咬掉了!其实仔仔是在凌晨的时候就被发现不见了,但阿姨却不敢告诉我,直到那天的傍晚才告诉我!她把整间家打扫了一番,任何隐秘的地方都找了,却不见他的踪影!过后,我们等了一天,两天,都没见到他的出现,开始有点失望了,也不期望他会再回来了,打算买一只会来填补他的位子!

但是感谢神哦,在他不见之后的48小时后,他跑进我姨丈的被窝,过后就被抓着了!阿姨说,发现他的时候,他的毛发有点肮脏,也不知道他跑到哪里去玩!!!但感谢神啦,他总算会自己跑出来,要不然如果饿死发臭了就只剩下尸体,再不是的话就连尸体都找不到!

好啦。。。报道到此为止!!

It's a season of hard landing

I remembered when I first accepted Christ, the first couple of years I actually thought my life is going to be just wonderful, like in the movie you know.

Then later I realised there are stages in the walk with God ... and then at one point I actually thought I know a lot of things. Well, I thought I was smart and quick learner.

Then come to another stage I actually realised that there are more then stages in the walk, and there's also ups and downs in every of those stages too! and it's not a good news, because I don't like the feeling of down...

Recently, I smelled the season is changing for me. It's time for a hard landing.

I've been rebellious to the authorities and I was not playing by the rule of the game, I play it by my own rule. I fly the plane my way. Well God does have an "instruction manual" for us, to show us how to fly my plane, safely according to the creator way.

I repented, before the Lord, that I wasn't following carefully on His "instruction manual", then only I realised, that I was not repenting enough through out my walk with God. I couldn't recall when was the last time I was crying before the Lord for forgiveness... I was playing 'stiff neck' with God. Well guess who won ?

So I see the hard landing has come, that we shall be responsible for my own action. Plane crash and we can get hurt badly. But I also believe, that the Lord is always there, ready to forgive us, to save us. Well our plane may crash, work maybe wasted, but our life will be spared.

That's the gospel isn't it ? ;- )


人 在 那 根 基 上 所 建 造 的 工 程 若 存 得 住 , 他 就 要 得 賞 賜 . 人 的 工 程 若 被 燒 了 , 他 就 要 受 虧 損 , 自 己 卻 要 得 救 ; 雖 然 得 救 , 乃 像 從 火 裡 經 過 的 一 樣 。
歌 林 多 前 書 3:14~15

A Life Changing Summer


As an aunt of 4 nieces and 3 nephews, I feel proud and glad when seeing them growing up spiritually and mentally. Tear is coming out from my eyes. Joy is filling my heart. Nothing is better than that. God is awesome and amazing.

My eldest niece, Esther; 17 years old, went to a mission trip for two months. She came back a few days ago. Every word that came out from her mouth is God. She shared with me how God had taught and prepared her during the first month, and how God had used her during the second month. During the first month, God taught her that she is beautiful even without her makeup on; by the way it is the teenage culture at here to put on makeup even you are at home. God showed her that she is beautiful through others’ word; her friends told her that they saw glory in her. God taught her how to share gospel to others. God also taught her to prophesy to others. During the second month, she spoke many words of knowledge to others and prayed for healing. God is awesome, it does not matter who you are, how old you are, He can use you. I see how God has used her. Before she went to this mission trip, someone actually prophesied to her that she was going to use her mouth to serve God, and this summer would be a life changing summer. Indeed, God has corroborated His words.

My nephew, Ezra; 13 years old, went to a discovery camp. He told me that how he encountered God through worship and prayer. How he learn to serve God through serving others. He also shared with me when he prayed for his friend, and his friend got healed. Another thing that I want to share about him is his worship. My family and I always though that he would be a great drummer since he was a little boy. However, God’s plan is different from us. Ezra’s guitar skill is fantastic compare to drum. There was one Sunday service; he was playing with his youth group for Sunday worship, oh dear,,,,,his guitar skill and voice in amazing. The way he worship God with his voice and guitar was so sweet. This young guy, you never though that God will use him so amazingly. No doubt, that God is using him.

My niece, Kar Yee; 13 years old, in Malaysia accepted Christ a few months ago. Her speed for God is faster than a rocket. I know not much about her since I am here. All I want to share about her is her desire for God is more than many of us.

I praise God for His works in their life. Seeing God’s works in their life encourages me a lot. God can use a little fellow or a big fellow to do great things in His Kingdom as long as you are willing to be used by God.

不是要弄大家哭!



今天,同工禱告會,彩微負責代今天的禱告會!他說今天是7月31日,他在協傳服事了3個月!他感恩上帝的帶領,他說這也是數算上帝恩典的時候!這也是讓我有想要寫這篇文章的動力!

在美儸帳幕神召會6年半的時間,要感恩的事情多得很!

從我來KL念書,人生地不熟,都不知道那里有教會,但感謝神,我這6年來都能夠有機會去到教會!第一次去教會就有人來接我,直到今天我跟你成爲好朋友,而你仍記得我當時我身穿白色衣服,藍色牛仔褲的那個樣子。謝謝你在這幾年來對我無微不至的關心,給我許許多多的勸誡忠告,讓我不至於跌得遍體鱗傷。當你知道我要離開的時候,我能夠看見你那種不捨的眼神,看見你哭,我也哭了!

感恩,上帝把我帶到這個大家庭,我在念書的時候,你們在禱告上扶持我一步一步的走下去直到我順利畢業!在學院念書的時間,我無法享受,因爲我被孤立了,朋友只有一兩個,能夠與我分擔分享傷心快樂的就只有教會的弟兄姐妹!能夠與你們聚在一起的時間,是我最開心快樂的!在教會的時間久了,上帝把較知心的姐妹們放在我的身邊,很感恩有你們的陪伴!

當我畢業了,本來一起同租一間屋子的朋友都離開了,你們卻進來跟我一起住,與你們在一起的時光,我都很享受!雖然我們各有各的工作,各有各的忙,但我最期待的就是每一天大家放工回來的時間!我們建立了不一樣的友情,我們一起哭,一起笑,一起去教會,一起成長,上帝把我們裝備成爲彼此生命中的天使!謝謝你們與我同住了這麽多年,對我的包容與忍耐,忍受我的脾氣臭臉,辛苦你們了!感謝神,你們都很愛我,雖然我很不可愛,但你們還是以上帝的愛來愛我,謝謝你們!

小組,是我成長的地方,這幾年來雖然小組重組了,但感謝神我仍然能夠繼續在你帶領的小組里頭成長。有時候我會撒嬌,不去教會,不去小組,但你都不放棄的關心我,給我許許多多的忍耐關懷。謝謝你,謝謝小組的每一個組員,謝謝你們對我的關心與愛護,我愛你們!

感謝神把我放在一個擁有許多屬靈長輩的教會當中,當我生命走到極軟弱的時候,在看看身邊的長輩們,他們對上帝的那份愛,他們對服事上帝的那股熱忱,讓我重新的振作起來!感謝神,在這個教會里面,我的屬靈爸爸不但給予我在屬靈上的牧養,還給予我很多的關心鼓勵!

還記得那時候我剛來到這間教會的時候,也算是剛信主,在屬靈生命上完全沒有任何的基礎,你卻不辭勞苦的,放工了卻還在你的溫馨小窩里幫助我和另一位弟兄上查經班,為我們打好堅固的屬靈根基!謝謝你和你可愛的家人給我的愛,我也好愛你們!

感謝曾經在我軟弱無力,自憐自艾的時候陪伴我的你,給我長長電郵的你,給我一通超過1小時的電話的你,收留我在你房里,三更半夜不讓你睡覺,卻沒有發半句怨言的你,這裡的你有好幾個人,我相信看著讀著的你們會知道我在講的就是你們!衷心的感謝你們!

在教會6年半的時間説長不長,說短不短,在這裡的日子,上帝給予我的祝福,給予我的恩典,真的是無法一一數算,太多太多了!我的離開不是要把身邊的朋友都弄哭,而是讓我們擁有多一次相聚的機會!雖然在此時此刻,你我的心中都有不捨有痛,但是卻看見上帝在你我的心中動了這麽美好的工作!我們有一天會發現我們的生命的藍圖在上帝的手中多了這樣的一筆是如此的美麗!

謝謝曾經在這6年半里頭出現在我省命中的每一個天使!祝福大家,我的離開是爲了要再見你們啦!再見了!!!

张惠妹 - 小小的梦想



Heard this from radio on the way to work. I guess it's a song 张惠妹 (Ah Mei) sings for 饥饿30. I noticed it's a Christian content, so found it on Youtube and upload it.

Maybe we can sing in church, huh ! Enjoy ...

蓝天是白云最美的故乡
大地是小草成长的地方
海洋是河流安歇的暖房
梦想是未来幸福天堂
小小的梦想能成就大事
只要仰望天父的力量
小小的梦想能改变世界
带来明天的盼望
耶和华是我们的力量
同心来为主传扬 来发光
前面的道路全然交给他
他必同在 使我们刚强
小小的梦想能成就大事
只要仰望天父的力量
 小小的梦想能改变世界
带来明天的盼望

阿爸天父,父親節快樂!



有位愛我的天父 祂永不放棄我
祂愛的同在使我完全
我深知祂顧念著我 我知祂顧念著我

有許多危難時刻 在流淚的過程
你永不離開或丟棄我
我深知你顧念著我 我深知你顧念著我

吸引我貼近你心 擁抱在你懷裡
我愛你我的天父 你是我的一切

The Interview With God

I found this interesting video at xiao bai's blog,have a look and have a nice day!

Be a Smart Person

Have you ever felt like a fool when you noticed you were worried for something that you were not supposing? As a Christian for many years, I always have this feeling. Until lately, I have learned to be wiser. I have learned that many times many things are not in my control. All things are in God’s hand. I have two amazing stories to share with all of you.

A few days ago, when I was talking to my niece, I noticed that her faith had grown up so much. She was sharing with me that she needed a car for the next school year. She is going to take one of the college classes at her last year of high school. But this class’s time has contrast with her golf class. None of her golf class students can give her ride to golf course after the college class. She said that her parents would not let her buying a car. I told her it was because they were worried about you. You were not mentally mature to control any accidents that happen suddenly. She agreed with me. This surprised me. A year ago, she still insisted to buy a car no matter how you tried to convince her. Our conversation continued. I told her not to worry about anything. God would prepare when the time comes. And she agreed with me as well. Wow Wow, Wow, her answer really surprised me. She said, “Yes, xiao ku. Look! ! ! God prepared for me my entire mission trip fund, $5000. It is not a small amount. I remember, when I decided to go, my parents and me were worried about the fund, but God gave me every cen.” They were worried, yet they got it from God.

Last Saturday, a Malaysian friend studies at my school called me.He had had a serious sickness that needed a surgery. My friend, Keat’s sickness was getting worse each day. He lost a lot of pounds. If he did not do the surgery, it might be life threaten. As you’ll know having surgery at the U.S. is supper duple expensive. Moreover, his school insurance is not enough to cover the payment. Money is the only problem; school is another problem. Because he needed to have this surgery, he could not take summer class, which would delay his graduation half a year to one year. He was worried about everything. I told him not to worry about anything. At this very moment, the only thing that we could do was praying to God. God would open a way for you. On Saturday, he called me. He told me that he had his surgery done on last Monday, which was the day he was supposed to go for blood checking, and now everything was fine. When he went to the hospital on Monday, his doctor discovered something new, and it was serious that required him to have surgery immediately. So that the doctor performed the surgery on that day and every thing is fine now. Keat just needs to have a good rest.

From the two stories above, they show us, we “NOT SO SMART HUMAN” always worry for things that are not in our control. All these things, to God, are just a piece of cake. Just a blink of eye, everything is done. These two stories are my highlight of my months……..Let all of us “NOT SO SMART HUMAN”, learn to trust God. Remember ! ! ! ! Worry does not bring anything good. A minute of worry takes away a minute of HAPPINESS.

I am thankful :- )

It was the middle of working days, when I drove pass my so-called 'hometown', Kampung Satu, the 'new village' near Sungai Besi where I spend my first 20 years of my life. I decided to drive in to have a look, even though I knew exactly all the houses has been completely demolished few years ago.

I saw the tree where I used to climb when we were chased and scolded by my mom. This is also the house where we had 4 pet dog died and I remember that I buried one of them myself just next to our house.
I literaly could hear the voice of my neighbour uncle accross the road, screaming "Chicken Rice for Ah Ming, Cha Siew for Ah Keong", the family was selling chicken rise inside the yard of his house. You know the new village style.

I remember the noise of our neighbour right hand side "Auntie Bull", they were selling wan tun mee then, one of th
e cheapest in town I always boast to my high school friend. and every "god's birthday", the elders in the temple would hire "Mobile TGV" team to play us movies in the middle of the road, with the very noisy projector and house-size projection screen, hanging on the right and left wooden street lamp pole...

Thousands of images and clips flashes my eyes at that split seconds. I realized that I was just a kid myself back then.


Now I am sitting in a more comfortable apartment myself, fully grown up (old in fact), watching 6 years old Cassandra lying down at the sofa still refuse to get up in the no school Saturday morning. Listening to Jefferson stumping his feets "applying permit" to 'kai kai', with his newly learn words "i wun sit car, kai kai... there.. " .... la
ter was playing with lotion on his palm, tasting a little bit, thinking it was the same whipped cream of the Starbuck drink. Chii was busy preparing the breakfast for them while the kids were busy at their own things.

And now I remember these screens were like some American family sitcom that I admired during my high school time. Mom and Dad, daughter and son.

I have a boy and a girl, and a lovely wife. Even though we don't have the dream house or car that we were talking about that day, and dream lifestyle we wish to have.

Thank God for my wonderful childhood. Thank God for my family, cause He gave us one boy and one girl,
a wonderful combination for Chii and I. Thank God for the grumpy Jefferson and super active Cassandra. Thank God for our good time at One Utama almost every weekend.


Hey, what's more can a man ask for
when he can have all these blessing ? :- )

五月的祝福

还记得这位美丽的新娘吗?他是十多年前当我们的拉曼学院小组刚成立时的其中一位成员之一,碧蕊。碧蕊是专读ACCA科系的学生,功课繁忙。讲真,很佩服攻读这一科系的人,因为要拿到这一张文凭实在不容易,非常的压力和挑战。

话说当年,小组组员不多,小猫两三只,有时还为了找适合的地方集聚而烦恼。那时碧蕊刚信主也有来小组,信仰的根基在两个半桶水的小家伙误打误导下慢慢建立了那薄薄的一层地基。当时我们的姐妹有许多关于信仰的问题,我实在有愧与她,没能一一为她讲解。就这样没多久毕业了,碧蕊去了新加坡工作,偶尔有联络。

过了没多久,收到她的电说她的家人信主了,要求我为她母亲的救恩继续祷告。又过了几年,她告诉我她在教会参与事奉并且是小组副组长。想起当年柔弱爱哭的碧蕊再看看如今在主里被灌溉健康成长的碧蕊,心里充满了感恩,欣慰。。。我们姐妹的根基真的被建立起来了!谢谢在新加坡一直帮助她鼓励她的弟兄和姐妹。

相片里,看她一身雪白的婚纱,我的心情。。。象妈妈看着养育多年的女儿要出嫁般的激动;是赞美,多年来神的一路同行。

一个双臂的故事

512 我身在中国广东,离四川至少还有5千公里。我想,当时我比许多人还要迟一天才知道这件事,因为导游不敢告诉我们。第二天,看到街上卖的报纸才知道。我想,那时候该把家人给吓坏了吧?一年后的今天,打开报纸犹如当年,看过的每一篇报道都还如此难忘。

今天,读到星洲日报其中的一篇文章:

摘下我的翅膀:献给张米亚老师

亲爱的孩子,不要哭泣
摘下我的翅膀,送你去飞翔
在雷鸣电闪山崩地裂中
灾难摧毁我们的校园
不怕,有我
我就是你们生命的雄鹰
张开我有力的臂膀
来为你筑起温暖的阳光

亲爱的孩子,不要哭泣
摘下我的翅膀,送你去飞翔
在杂乱的残垣
断壁中
你们并不孤寂
不怕,有我
请相信未来
灿烂的明天又会回到巴蜀大地山川
在那时,到处都是花儿开放的气息

亲爱的孩子,不要哭泣
摘下我的翅膀,送你去飞翔
我也将去往天堂的路上
请你们原谅
我们未尽的师生情义
请看看吧
那些帮助我们血浓于水的解放军
是他们用血肉铸成了我们胜利的城墙

亲爱的孩子,不要哭泣
摘下我的翅膀,送你去飞翔
不是我不坚强
丢下你们独自离去
只是因为天堂太美丽
为了让你轻松的成长和站起
我必须折断我的双臂
那是我摘下的翅膀
我使用它
送你们自由自在去飞翔

记:
张米亚跪仆在废墟上,用双臂紧紧搂着两个孩子,象一只展翅欲飞的雄鹰。两个孩子还活着,而“雄鹰”已气绝身亡!由于紧抱孩子的双臂已经僵硬,救援人员只得含泪将之锯掉才把孩子救出。
“摘下我的翅膀,送你去飞翔:”张米亚用生命诠释了这句歌词。用血肉之躯为他的学生牢牢把守住了生命之门。向英雄的老师致敬!

一个午餐的时间,我问自己;如果换了是自己,我会如此为了与我没有血缘关系的人而牺牲吗?我做到吗?什么时候,人的一双手臂可以发出如此强大的力量?什么时候,人的一双手臂可以发出如此有力的见证?爱,是一切的的答案!我祷告神赦免我。

當我們閉口不認罪時


我閉口不認罪的時候,就整天唉哼,以致骨頭衰殘。因為你的手晝夜重壓在我身上,我的精力耗盡,好像盛暑的乾旱。我向你承認我的罪,沒有隱藏我的罪孽;我說:“我要向耶和華承認我的過犯”;你就赦免我的罪孽。因此,凡是敬虔的人,都當趁你可尋找的時候,向你禱告;大水氾濫的時候,必不能達到他那裡。你是我藏身之處,你必保護我脫離患難,以得救的歡呼四面環繞我。我要教導你,指示你應走的路;我要勸戒你,我的眼睛看顧你。(詩篇32:5-8)
For when I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long.For day and night your hand was heavy upon me;my strength was dried up as by the heat of summer.I acknowledged my sin to you,and I did not cover my iniquity;I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,”and you forgave the iniquity of my sin.Therefore let everyone who is godly offer prayer to you at a time when you may be found;surely in the rush of great waters,they shall not reach him.You are a hiding place for me;you preserve me from trouble;you surround me with shouts of deliverance.I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;I will counsel you with my eye upon you.

身為一個愛神愛人的基督徒,内在屬靈生命的健康與否,是不容忽視的!内在的生命影響了我們外在的生命,影響我們在親戚朋友們面前的見證,甚至影響我們身體的健康!是的,不否認我們每一個人都有軟弱的地方,但是當我們遇到軟弱的時候,我們該做到不是逃避,乃是勇敢的面對,勇敢的向那賜永生生命的上帝求救!

很多時候我們都會覺得自己不配,覺得自己很骯髒,自己沒有這樣的資格來到懇求上帝原諒我們犯過的罪!但是當我們來到想一想當主耶穌被釘在十字架的時候,祂身邊的那個死囚,不是比我們還要來的不配,來的骯髒千百倍嗎?不要被這些消極的思想來到纏繞你,這些都是魔鬼的詭計,牠就只想要你離開上帝!主耶穌被釘在十架上,身體上的鞭傷,流出的那寶貴的血不都已經代替了,洗淨了你的罪,你的骯髒,你的一切一切認爲不配的原因嗎?

我們都明白這些的道理,但是當我們真的遇到這樣的問題的時,我們就被這些的謊言來到欺騙,我們甚至被這樣的思想蒙蔽了!我們會有這樣的情況,最主要的原因是因爲我們的屬靈生命的健康出現了問題,我們不夠健康以致被這樣的思想佔據!如果你說,我不喜歡禱告,不喜歡靈修,不喜歡讀經,那麽,我要如何調整我的屬靈生命呢?

有人告訴我,當你不喜歡吃叉燒的時候,你就要一直的讓自己吃叉燒,吃到你喜歡爲止!很多時候當我們不喜歡一件事情,或是一樣東西的時候,我們都不會去碰,更用不着“喜歡”這兩個字在這些事情或東西上!但是在另一個角度來看,所謂的日久生情,就是這樣來的!當你做一件事情久了,面對一個人久了,你就會習慣,你就會喜歡了!所以我們的屬靈生命不是一夜之間就會自己成長,乃是要不斷的操練,當你不喜歡禱告的時候,你就更應該殷勤的禱告;當你不愛讀經的時候,你就更應該讀經;當你覺得你親近上帝的時候,上帝沒有給你任何的回應,你就更應該花多一點的時間來到等候上帝。

我們每一個人都有自己的軟弱,我們時常都會犯罪,所以每當我們來到上帝的面前時,我們當向祂認罪,祈求上帝的原諒赦免,讓我們能夠坦然無懼的來到與祂親近!當我們選擇閉口不認罪的時候,就整天唉哼,以致骨頭衰殘。 因為耶和華的手晝夜重壓在我們身上,我們的精力耗盡,好像盛暑的乾旱。

相反的,當我們承認自己的罪,沒有隱藏的罪孽;我們說:“我們要向耶和華承認我們的過犯”;主耶和華就赦免我們的罪孽。 因此,凡是敬虔的人,都當趁可尋找上帝的時候,向上帝禱告;大水氾濫的時候,必不能達到他那裡。上帝是我們藏身之處,祂必保護我們脫離患難,以得救的歡呼四面環繞我們。上帝要教導我們,指示我們應走的路;上帝要勸戒我們,上帝的眼睛看顧我們。

my miracle baby...josh



on 04022009, i went to my gynae's clinic for a follow up checkup for my baby. appointment was at 12 plus.reached there and as usual long queue awaits.just before my turn, my gynae have to rush to the labour room to deliver a baby.that was about 1.30pm. i was like...sigh...so walter and i went to makan at the dome...they served great mushroom soup n garlic bread...mmmm...yummy....

came back to the clinic and i finally managed to see my gynae at 3 plus. the check up was not a favourable one...
1. baby was not growing for the last 3 weeks @ 2kg
2. water bag leaking
3. baby's heartbeat report was not satisfying

oops....my gynae asked me to admit myself for 2 nights for monitoring purpose... so, to cut the whole story short....i ended up in the operating theatre (ot) instead of the normal ward.it was an emergency case as baby's heartbeat was slowing down....before i was pushed into the ot....

1. gynae said " if baby stay in there one more day, sure die ...."
2. labour room nurse commented " kalau baby macam ini keluar pun tentu pucat dan tak menangis (in bahasa)"
3. mid wife said " wo pa pa (i'm scared-in mandarin)"

.......the voices of the negative world...........

i have mixture of feelings at that time. no words can describe my feelings. like a rojak thingy....fearful, ??, worry, ??, negative thoughts, ??... and etc...but.... at that particular moment of time, i strongly experienced HIS presence and PEACE. i know GOD will have the best plan for me...no matter what happen....

tiny baby josh was taken out safely. he was sent to the high dependency unit (hdu) for further check ups. everything was fine except for his temperature (not so stabilised). he was transferred to the nursery the following day.

my gynae's told me baby was taken out in the nick of time. there were no reasons being of the complications. the only possibility was the placenta.... baby was not absorbing the nutrients and oxygen....

today, we are living in a world of technology where we can enjoy many...many.. things. medically, many lives have been preserved due to the technology. yet, at times technology cannot provide us the answers and solutions.

as for my case, some people say i'm lucky, some people might say it's the technology. but i say, it's a miracle. a miracle from GOD. i thank GOD for preserving my baby's life.

PRAISE AND GLORY TO MY GOD!!

Always Appreciate Little Things

I like to share the following email I received from my aunt today....

A married lady was expecting a birthday gift from her husband. For many months she had admired a beautiful diamond ring in a showroom, and knowing her husband could afford it, she told him that was all she wanted.

As her birthday approached, this lady awaited signs that her husband had purchased the diamond ring. Finally, on the morning of her birthday, her husband called her into his study room. Her husband told her how proud he was to have such a good wife, and told her how much he loved her. He handed her a beautiful wrapped gift box. Curious, the wife opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible, with the wife's name embossed in gold.

Angrily, she raised her voice to her husband and said, "With all your money you give me a Bible? And stormed out of the house, leaving her husband.

Many years passed and the lady was very successful in business.. She managed to settle for a more beautiful house and a wonderful family, but realized her ex-husband was very old, and thought perhaps she should go to visit him. She had not seen him for many years. But before she could make arrangements, she received a telegram telling her that her ex-husband had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to her. She needed to come back immediately and take care of things.

When she arrived at her ex-husband's house, sudden sadness and regret filled her heart. She began to search through her ex-husband's important papers and saw the still new Bible, just as she had left it years before.

With tears, she opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. Her ex-husband had carefully underlined a verse, Matt 7:11, "And if you, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Heavenly Father, who is in heaven, give to those who ask Him?"

As she read those words, a tiny package dropped from the back of the Bible. It had a diamond ring, with her name engraved on it -- the same diamond ring which she saw at the showroom. On the tag was the date of her birth, and the words...'LUV U ALWAYS'...

How many times do we miss God's blessings, because they are not packaged as we expected?

Do not spoil what you have, by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.

IF YOUR GIFT IS NOT PACKAGED THE WAY YOU WANT IT, IT'S BECAUSE IT IS BETTER PACKAGED THE WAY IT IS! ALWAYS APPRECIATE LITTLE THINGS; THEY USUALLY LEAD YOU TO BIGGER THINGS!

爱是永不止息-李艾媚


2月27日晚上8时30分,阿辉与阿比在我们(婆婆、季仁与我)到吉隆坡美罗帐幕神召会会所,为第二天要举行的婚礼进行彩排。
抵达目的地时,钟国强牧师与其他身负任务的弟兄姐妹已在那儿等候。五名小花童与伴郎伴娘一次又一次地陪着准新郎与准新娘排练。优美的旋律在回荡,季仁挽着阿比的手,迈着稳健的步子,缓缓进入礼堂,在众人的掌声中,将阿比交给站在台前的阿辉。
彩排结束后已是10时许,我们先回住处,一些弟兄姐妹仍留在会场布置。他们的爱心与付出,我们衷心感谢。
婚礼于2月28日下午1时30分开始。钟牧师如此介绍阿辉--一个彬彬有礼的青年,做事勤快认真,对老人和小孩特别有爱心,不过,在羽球场上完全没有情可讲,即使对手是牧师也照杀(杀球)不误。至于阿比,牧师形容她有如一朵含苞欲放的花,文静而美丽。这对年轻人在教会中相识相爱的过程,钟牧师全看在眼里,他还“爆”出一个秘密。
2004年,钟牧师带领一班年轻人到金马伦高原参加一个营会。一天清晨,牧师把头伸到窗外呼吸新鲜空气,看见阿比独自坐在外面读经祷告。不一会儿,大门被人轻轻拉开,一个男生蹑手蹑脚的走出来,坐在阿比身旁......
“爱”让两个年轻人走在一块儿。牧师朗读哥林多前书第十三章第4节至第8节,诠释爱的真谛。
“爱是恒久忍耐又有恩慈,爱是不嫉妒,爱是不自夸,不张狂,不做害羞的事,不求自己的益处,不轻易发怒,不计算人的恶,不喜欢不义,只喜欢真理,凡是包容,凡是相信,凡是盼望,凡是忍耐,爱是永不止息。”
原上帝的旨意成就在阿辉与阿比身上,愿他们的爱永不止息。阿门!

超乎一切的上帝

“感谢赞美神!!”.. 这是今早4.30am凌晨起来所做的一件事…就是感谢赞美神…大家可别误会了我的意思, 以为我好像非常属灵的… 而是我觉得自己太过亏欠神了… 所以一大清早天还未亮的时候, 就起身向神认罪悔改, 求神怜悯我…

接着就打开了我们的部落格lifeisabouthim, 又那么碰巧就读到了James所写的 “Busy economy, Busy Christian” 这一篇文章… 第一个时间提醒了我, my life is about HIM... 是的, 祂奇妙的作为在我身上…

因祂为我开道路 :

在所谓目前经济不景气的时刻, 祂的手一路的牵引着我, 让我看到祂奇妙的作为在我身上. 因着祂的带领, 我看到了我目前的经济状况是美好的.. 因我相信祂是赐丰盛生命的主… 因之前会很担心自己的经济状况而无法参与教会所实行的建堂基金计划… 自己的确为了这件事而感到非常担忧及没有信心…

但感谢赞美上帝, 虽然在人看来是不可能的事, 但在神凡是都能.. 我就凭着信心参与了这建堂基金的计划, 认捐了一个数目… 感谢主, 凭着那次信心的宣告, 我看到了上帝的作为, 祂不单加倍了我的经济, 也加倍了我对祂的信心… 因我看到了当我们凭着信心去行每一样事情时, 祂必会赐给我们意想不到的平安及收获… 感谢赞美主!!

就好像James所写到的 “Our God and His people should not be shaken by the cycle of financial crisis or instability of demand-and-supply market. Our God and His people should be above all the reports from bloomberg.com.”

感谢主, 因祂是超乎一切的上帝!! 愿一切的尊贵荣耀都归给我们至高无上的上帝!!

Busy economy, Busy Christian

This is the season of getting busy. Well, I think no one would disagree with me when I say the world economy looks pretty bad now. Even country like Malaysia with lots of natural resources cannot escape from the effect of the global downturn. 

Report has not shown good outcome, as figures shown that US spending growth is very slow in Feb-09 “....Overall confidence, even though it’s at low levels, ... as people are just spending on bare necessities..." 27-Mar-09, bloomberg.com . I must say that this is quite a worrying report.

As simple as ABC, when less are being spent, less multiplying effect in economy and therefore the slow (or dead) economy will need to be 'kick-start" to regenerate the activities, to regain momentum. Believe me if this is new to you, when US people start to spend less, it is bad for the whole world.

So in times like this, everyone, at least myself, need to stay very busy looking forward to perform their best ever in their work place. Now the aim may not be so much of earning extra or looking forward to promotion or something, but to make best effort just to maintain their position or salary in their work place, performing for the overall growth of the company to 'save own neck'. Or for business owners, working doubly hard in order to cushion the fall in revenue that has come or about to come.

Bottom line is, busy busy busy...

However, when I start to think about the church building project and our Pastor's vision for the growth of the church, and that reminds me that our God and His people really should be above all economic structures and rules. Our God and His people should not be shaken by the cycle of financial crisis or instability of demand-and-supply market. Our God and His people should be above all the reports from bloomberg.com.

Many people are like me I guess, always look forward for complicated theory and practices, and often forget to apply the most basic ones. And the most basic ones are usually very crucial.

This one is basic. When God plan to do something, the plan will happen no matter how. Maybe God doesn't need to "plan" at all, maybe He will just "Do it" without the need to plan since He is a all-knowing God and He knows the future. Well, in this case, economy is a 'too-tiny' factor that can affect His plan. 

I'm glad that I worship a God that is above all things, be it tangible or intangible things. Aren't you?

So I think we can be busy, but need not worry. Bible says "don't worry, be happy" (rejoice) mah !

Thank God for He is God that rules

好朋友(给适耕庄的慧婷)



好想与大家分享这篇文章,不是要炫耀自己,不是要荣耀自己。但只想要说,感谢神创造了一个这样的我。

这篇文章是从美里传真过来给我的,作者是李艾媚(文中阿比的妈妈)。

阿比住在旺莎玛珠一座组屋内,每个单位有两个房间。阿比独住一间,还有三个女孩(丽凤,丽环与慧婷,前两位是同胞姐妹。)住另一间。

白天,四个好朋友各自上班;晚上下班的时间也不一样,大家各有各忙,唯一共同的活动是星期天早上一起到教会敬拜上帝。

2007年3月,季仁与我偷得数日闲,特地飞到吉隆坡去探望两个女儿,我们就住在阿比那里。抵达阿比的住处时已是深夜十一时许,女孩子们还没有就寝。丽凤和丽环在客厅观赏电视节目,慧婷则在阿比房里帮忙收拾。阿比难为情地笑,声称因为太忙碌,所以无暇整理自己的“窝”,幸好慧婷仗义帮助。我们向慧婷道谢,她有点腼腆,微笑着表示那算不了什么。

第二天,阿比下班回到住所已经近晚上九时,我到厨房去打算烧一锅水给阿比洗个热水澡,没想到煤气炉上已有一锅刚煮沸的水,是慧婷为阿比预备的。那一刻,我说不出心中有多感动。那是一位多么善良而又体贴的女孩啊!

这一回去吉隆坡,前两晚我们住在阿辉为我们租的公寓(每日租金四百令吉)。第三天是三月一日,阿比安排我们住她那儿。其实那个房间已不属于阿比,因为慧婷已将它租下。正确地说,是慧婷将她的房间让给我们暂住。

房间还是老样子,只是属于阿比的东西已搬走。地上铺着床褥,还有枕头和被单。房门的把手上挂着一串五颜六色的小纸片。我好奇的翻阅,原来都是圣经上的经节,是慧婷一字一句,工工整整地抄下来送给阿比的。可以想像,过去几年,每当我们小女儿情绪低落又不想让父母担心时,慧婷是如何像一个大姐姐般扶持着她。这个女孩的年纪其实比阿比小呢!我的心再一次被溶化。阿比何其幸运,拥有一位这么好的朋友。

慧婷,安娣非常欣赏你,愿上帝使你福杯满溢,你一生一世必有恩惠慈爱跟随着,你且要住在耶和华的殿中,直到永远。阿们!


短短的一篇文章,让我感动得哭了!!

Bukan Dengan Barang Fana



Bukan dengan barang fana
Kau membayar dosa ku
oleh darah yang maha
Tiada noda dan cela

Bukan dengan emas perak
Kau menebus diriku
Oleh segenap kasih
Dan pengorbanan mu

Ku telah mati dan tinggalkan
Cara hidup ku yang lama
Semuanya sia-sia dan tak bereti lagi
Hidup ini ku letakkan
Pada mezbah-mu ya tuhan
Jadilah padaku seperti yang kau ingini

疑惑

天空有点冷漠
等着用眼泪 交换我的笑容
开始茫然失措
跌跌撞撞中 雨滴纷纷散落

我的安慰只提供冰冻
脉搏舞着刺痛
眼神闪烁空洞
反复质问
祢在何处守候

祢默默指着背后
一路来祢承担我的体重
祢心疼我的落寞
却给我最大的自由
任我固执地选择自己走
只是满怀希望等我回头

我问祢爱不爱我
祢轻轻点了点头
摊开双手
铁钉穿透的孔
解答所有疑惑

全家福, 让我想起这些...

全家福, 让我想起了一些Petronas 的经典广告. 是感动人心, 满有真理的.
这广告我每次看, 都会"眼湿湿"的.


还有另一个也是Petronas的广告, 赚了我不少感动 :- )



我想, 一般人多都会被这一些广告感动, 是因为上帝在设计和创造我们时,
加入了一个重要的元素-"爱". 因为神就是爱.

因为祂先爱我们, 所以我们也能爱, 也在心底里渴望被爱.

人尚且会向我们重视的人表现爱,
更何况创造我们的上帝, 怎会不无时无刻向我们表现祂的爱呢?

朋友, 神爱你 . . . . 当然, 祂也看顾祂爱的你 . . . .

Why we are here?

收到一个姐妹电邮, 非常真实, 非常有鼓励性的对话. 我想借着这地方贴出来, 好让你也能 copy & paste, 然后 email 给你的朋友.... 

An interview with Rick Warren (Author of Purpose Driven Life)

In the interview by Paul Bradshaw with Rick Warren, Rick said: "People ask me, What is the purpose of life?" 

And I respond: "In a nutshell, life is preparation for eternity. We were not made to last forever, and God wants us to be with Him in Heaven. 

One day my heart is going to stop, and that will be the end of my body - but not the end of me. 
I may live 60 to 100 years on earth, but I am going to spend trillions of years in eternity. This is the warm-up act - the dress rehearsal. God wants us to practice on earth what we will do forever in eternity. 

We were made by God and for God, and until you figure that out, life isn't going to make sense. 
Life is a series of problems: Either you are in one now, you're j! ust coming out of one, or you're getting ready to go into another one. 

The reason for this is that God is more interested in your character than your comfort;God is more interested in making your life holy than He is in making your life happy. 
We can be reasonably happy here on earth, but that's not the goal of life. The goal is to grow in character, in Christ likeness. 

This past year has been the greatest year of my life but also the toughest, with my wife, Kay, getting cancer. 

I used to think that life was hills and valleys - you go through a dark time, then you go to the mountaintop, back and forth. I don't believe that anymore. 

Rather than life being hills and valleys, I believe that it's kind of like two rails on a railroad track, and at all times you have something good and something bad in your life. 

No matter how good things are in your life, there is always something bad that needs to be worked on. And no matter how bad things are in your life, there is always something good you can thank God for.  You can focus on your purposes, or you can focus on your problems: 

If you focus on your problems, you're going into self-centeredness, which i! s my problem, my issues, my pain. But one of the easiest ways to get rid of pain is to get your focus off yourself and onto God and others. 

We discovered quickly that in spite of the prayers of hundreds of thousands of people, God was not going to heal Kay or make it easy for her - it has been very difficult for her, and yet God has strengthened her character, given her a ministry of helping other people, given her a testimony, drawn her closer to Him and to people. 

You have to learn to deal with both the good and the bad of life. 
Actually, sometimes learning to deal with the good is harder. For instance, this past year, all of a sudden, when the book sold 15 million copies, it made me instantly very wealthy. 
It also brought a lot of notoriety that I had never had to deal with before. I don't think God gives you money or notoriety for your own ego or for you to live a life of ease. 

So I began to ask God what He wanted me to do with this money, notoriety and influence. He gave me two different passages that helped me decide what to do, II Corinthians 9 and Psalm 72. 

First, in spite of all the money coming in, we would not change our lifestyle one bit. We made no major purchases. 
Second, about midway through last year, I stopped taking a salary from the church. 
Third, we set up foundations to fund an initiative we call The Peace Plan to plant churches, equip leaders, assist the poor, care for the sick, and educate the next generation. 
Fourth, I added up all that the church had paid me in the 24 years since I started the church, and I gave it all back. It was liberating to be able to serve God for free. 

We need to ask ourselves: Am I going to live for possessions? Popularity? 
Am I going to be driven by pressures? Guilt? Bitterness? Materialism? Or am I going to be driven by God's purposes (for my life)? 

When I get up in the morning, I sit on the side of my bed and say, God, if I don't get anything else done today, I want to know You more and love You better. God didn't put me on earth just to fulfill a to-do list. He's more interested in what I am than what I do. 

That's why we're called human beings, not human doings. 

Happy moments, PRAISE GOD. 
Difficult moments, SEEK GOD. 
Quiet moments, WORSHIP GOD. 
Painful moments, TRUST GOD. 
Every moment, THANK GOD
