Maybe it's not the time yet

Can't go home to KB

At first I was intending to go home on March 16 for a week, something crops up and looks like it's not the time yet for me to go home. Hehe... I trust that my Lord's timing is the best, and He knows what's the best for me. So, continue to stay here in Singapore then. Hehe..

Tomorrow big day for someone

We 3 are going to attend Kenneth's wedding thanksgiving service tomorrow morning, and also a dinner. Hehe, we see how well God has placed His children together. May God continue to bless them as it is another "homework" to learn being a husband or a wife. Hehe...

Job update

Still going well I guess, bug fixing everyday and hopefully these bugs will all be eliminated. However, these bugs don't seem so easily be contained... one clear, you get some more again. Bah... that's all for now...

Trust the Lord

Youth Fellowship on Feb 21, 2009

Although I am considered as "Young Adult" now, it's not awkward as well for me to attend youth fellowship, right? Hehe... the most important thing is what I have learnt about my Lord during the fellowship and how I can apply it to our daily live. Also, it is important that brothers and sisters can encourage one another, help one another, know more about one another and pray for one another during the fellowship. It is important for all of us to know who we are worshipping - the One and Only God, our Lord.

Speaking of that, I remembered that I have not start reading through the verses given during Geylang Teen-Youth committee bible study. Haha... oopsie... will start soon, good thing I still remember! Haha. The topic we studying is "Fellowship" as well.

Coming back to our youth fellowship, we watched a video by Joshua Harris, giving a message on "Trust". The first two video were on "What is true love?" and "Purity". I like the poem mentioned by Joshua, which I barely remember by now, (poor memory). Hehe... Joshua's message this time is to encourage us to redeem our time, the time we are single. Don't think that "if I am married, I would do this... and that... etc", don't live in the future or NATO (no action think only), haha... but make use of our time now to pursue godliness.

He mentioned about a boy, Peter, who was very impatient. Once he met an old lady who gave him a silver ball with a golden thread sticking out of it. The old lady told Peter that this thread represent his life and if he pulled the thread, the time will past very quickly. Peter took the ball to school. The teacher was talking non-stop and he started to feel bored. He remembered this silver ball in his bag. "Let's see if this silver ball really that magical." His hand went into his bag and he pulled a bit on the thread. The next thing he know, the school dismissed.

"Wow!" Peter was so excited. "If I pull more, then I would have graduated. Let's try!" He pulled longer than the previous trial. Zoom, he graduated. He had a girlfriend, but his girlfriend is not yet ready for marriage. "Oh Peter, give me another year, I want to learn how to be a good wife. I believe the time will fly soon." his girlfriend said. Peter thought, "Oh yeah, the time will fly very very fast." After his girlfriend left, he pulled the thread again and he had married his girlfriend, started to have his own family. When he met with any problem in life, he just pulled the thread to get over with them... soon he is at the end of his thread, and when he looked back, he felt he has not learnt anything in life because he has fast-forwarded every problem or chance that he can learn something...

Trust in the Lord for God's timing is the best. Don't complain, because complaining means "hey God, I hate your arrangement, how about giving me more of this and that that I like to do?", are you more superior than God? No, God created the world with His word, "Let there be light, and there is light". Contented is not something you gain from looking forward, but looking at what you already have, e.g. "If I have that, then I'll happy" describes someone who is not contented. Thus let us be contented on what we already have, for what we have are all given by God. Moreover, these belong to God, we are just servants of God, taking care of these things for Him. These could be refering to time, money, mental, health, including our body! Hehe...

Good night

Nothing much now, going to bed now... feel like going to be sick, but hopefully I drink enough water to keep myself healthy. Hehe... trust in the Lord. ;)

One of the weekend

It's Saturday again and after a week spent with my dad, I thank God that Tung Ngie and I managed to share God's word with him, and I will continue to pray that God will one day open his eyes and hearts, to see that we can never able to only use our own strength to overcome all the difficulties in this world. My dad said "He will only believe Christ if he sees Christ for himself", my thought to this is "You don't want to see him so soon, do you? Because the time when you see him, you can't choose to believe him anymore, because you would have left the world." If someone says he/she will only believe what he/she see, then ask him/her whether he/she believes in wind or not. We can't see wind, but we can only feel it. Ask him/her how he/she can prove there is wind to someone who don't believe in wind.

Seeing is not believing because things you can see are temporary items but things you can't see last eternally. All shall be past, except God's word that will remain eternally. God is going to create a new heaven and earth, and there will be no tears, no pains, etc. God gives us a glimpse of how the new heaven and earth looks like in the last book of the bible. It is such a wonderful description and I am full of joy that I am guranteed to see this new heaven and earth that God has prepared for all His children. I can't wait go there...

Before Christ ascended to the heaven, he has given all his disciples a commandment - to spread his word and make disciples from all nations, languages and speech. I thank the Lord that he has given me this burden in my heart that I have always wanted to share the gospel and my testimony with brothers, sisters, relatives and friends. God has shown His love to us first, before we know how to love one another. Really, I have too much to thank God for.

I believe there will be someone's birthday every day and let me tell you the truth, the greatest gift is the Lord Jesus Christ himself. Happy birthday Alan Chan, and a 1-day advance happy birthday to Kin Fai. (Sorry, forgot to list you two in my previous post) May you two have the chance to hear the true gospel and may God open your hearts and eyes, realize yourselves as a sinner and the only way to cleanse the sin is through the blood of Christ - the Son of God - who was put on the cross for our sin. He resurrected on the third day for he has gained victory over Satan or the devil. Now, those who believes in Him will have eternal life - spiritual life, our earthly body will still return to the ground.

Please scroll to the bottom to see the verses John 3:16-18.

Birthdays

I have quite a number of friends having birthday in February - Ah bao (CYB), Ferry, Xue Hui, Aik Hong and Jia Urnn. Hmm... sorry for those I didn't list here that I have forgotten your birthday! Yikes... don't worry, will visit Facebook or Friendster soon to recall my memory. Haha... Oh, not to forget, my mum and cousin Tin Tin also have their birthday this month! Hehe... for the days - Feb 5, 8, 19 and 25. Hehe... guess which day is whose birthday. Haha... hope I didn't get the days wrong. Haha...

Updates

This post is meant for update only, hehe. Have been going back to office for 3 consecutive Saturdays now, and finally reached the testing stage. All I can do now is solve bugs and do some refactoring, to make my codes more unit-testable although I haven't started increasing the number of unit test cases yet. Hopefully my boss won't ask for unit test coverage so soon. Hehe...

Oopz, the washing machine has finished washing our clothes, time to hang the clothes now. Adios! Thank God for all things!
