August 2nd week

Oh no...

As I insert the memory verses for August, I realise that time sure flies... and I have stopped memorising memory verse for a month now... I have not memorise the verses for July and August. Need to gear myself back to memorising them again, and it'll be tough... as I have tried it before, when I return to memorise verses after my last uni examination (when I have stopped for two weeks)

9 Aug Teen Youth Fellowship

It's national day (it's Saturday anyway, but some brothers and sisters who works on Saturday got a break), and some of us met up in Sengkang MRT before Clifton brought us to his home... to cook! Haha... we have spaghetti (two sets, with different sauce), a pan-fried salmon and sausages (with and without cheese in the middle). Also, ZhenZhen brought salad, some sisters joined in to decorate the salad. We have prepared the gadgets and "ingredients" for our self-blend smoothie on one table. This smoothie is blended by our sister EnnYew and Doris. Haha... I still think the smoothie goes better with some vinegar, haha... add taste to it.

I thank God for the fine weather we had on that day while cooking, haha... we cooked from 10:55am till 12:30pm? but then we only eat for 30 mins... wow... we sure were hungry... haha...

I have invited HongKit, but he can't joined us for the cooking, thus I invite him for the lunch. I thought he can't find his way here and I am to be blamed because I didn't go down MRT to fetch him.... I am worried... and on the verge of regretful feeling (that I invite him to somewhere I don't know much how to get to here... and I am being lazy to go down to MRT to fetch him)... I saw that God leads... He brought HongKit to our block, then I managed to go down to bring him up. For that I just keep on thanking my Lord, and repent for being lazy, and for being so little in my faith on God... Before HongKit got to our block, I was keep telling myself, "God will lead him here," but I didn't pray, I just waited and "worried"... because I took the things into my own hand, didn't put it to God... I fell into Satan's illusion that I shouldn't have invited HongKit, then I won't be into so much worry... yes, if I have not invited him, I won't be worrying that he can't find his way here. I fell to Satan's trap and really regret that I have invited HongKit, but eventually, I thank God that He stop me from thinking with an sms from HongKit that he has reached our block. When I saw the sms, I repent... I knew I have sinned against my Lord, I have not trust Him and I realise how little my faith is unto my God... from these, I learnt this lesson... experience is sure one thing that God wants us to go through, so that we can learn... and most importantly, reflected our relationship with Christ... although I thought my relationship with Him has been stable and strong, this experience make me reflected that how silly and low-faith am I... how am I going to face God like that? I fell when I met up with a problem... as simply as that... I thought I can be like Job, but I didn't.

I thank God for He is in control of all, and I have managed to learn from this experience. I will not stop encouraging brothers and sisters, even unbelieving friends to our fellowship (of coz, I need to know what type of fellowship it is before I invite, right? Haha... can't possibly invite a non-believing friend to a seminar that is prepared for Christians, they won't understand what the speaker is speaking. Haha...)

In conclusion, I thank my Lord, repent to Him, and continue to serve Him... pray that I grow in my faith unto Him so that I won't fall into Satan's trap when I encounter my next test/problem in life. May God also strengthen His children's faith unto Him. It is only through trials (fire in the furnace) before we know how capable, how faithful we are to our Lord (whether we can come out of the furnace, being a gold or silver... or come out as burnt wood?) Haha...

That's for my experience for that 1/2 - 1 hr of anxiety. Haha... then my brother, TungNgie led in our singinspiration, and he shared with us his testimonial when he first came to Singapore for his GCE O'Level... in english, haha... (after the fellowship, he told me that he had difficulty finding words to describe what he want, haha... but thank God, hopefully his message to the teens is clear to them)

Then moving on, our speaker for that day, brother Roger answered some of our BGR (boys-girls relationship) question regarding courtship and dating (non-US version - do you know that 'dating' in US involves sleeping together? In another word, one night stand. So don't say 'yes' if someone wanna date you in US) We have a wonderful sharing from the speaker and we have really learnt a lot there, especially for those who is going for marriage, and those who is looking for a partner... haha... it's God's will for his children to get marry... but not anyone, but someone God tailored for us. Hehe... how wonderful our God is. He loves us as much as our partner (has to be a Christian) Hehe...

We ended the fellowship around 4.30pm. We have some refreshments... the leftover yogurt drink... and a cup of the self-blended smoothie... haha... I wonder who finished it, because it was still there when I left with HongKit and TungNgie. Haha... some of brothers and sisters stayed for some chatting...

Raining season

Last last week was a very hot week... no rain, just the sun, then last week... rain has been pouring down, strong and powerful... haha... my brother and I even walked home in the rain on last Thursday. Haha... not sure about this week... haha.. all in God's will. One of my friends put on his msn nick - "Not dare to pray for rain anymore". Haha...
