next week's colour
Sunday, July 31, 2005
even though there isn't OC next week, in support of national day, we decided next week's colour shall be red and white. happy 40th b'day singapore.
festival of praise 2005 is finally here, hillsongs will be playing next weekend at the indoor stadium. the worship team will be going on saturday. peeps who wanna join us may meet us in church at 5.30pm, and we'll all head down together.
hey guys. got alittle something to share from what ive saw and encountered during sonicfest. [other than the fun, tons of mosquito bites and food]
though each and everyone of us are always in our little cliques at church, hanging out with our little church cliques, as long as we have at least one thing in common, it'd bring us together. =)
for me, it was just my sis, than my old time fren-nic, plus subsquently the worship team and the list goes on and on.. it all started with at least one thing that we are all interested at, God.
later on, its where we find out more bout each other and get together more often. next thing u'll know you've found more than a fren you can trust.
it doesnt take a love-dovey feeling to hug a guy fren or a gal fren, it doesnt take someone you know to pray for you, it doesnt have to be someone you're close to to spill all your troubles and problems to, it doesnt have to be when everyone is dancing and jumping that you do so too...
all you need to know is that as long as you have one thing in common-God, im sure that everything will fall in place. you know that those around you, be it someone youre close to or someone who you totally do not talk to, that OC-sians are always there to lend a shoulder. OC-sians wont mind spending that little time sitting by you just chatting and letting lose. just one thing-God and the rest will slowly pick up.
i mean, do you befriend someone you totally have no clue of? nor if you have anything in same interest? that'd be weird for people our age. everything starts of with a little something that you guys both have, from there, building up your relationship as friends. =)
.:: friends are friends forever ::.
i wanna take this chance to tell everyone in OC that YOURE MY FREN! =D

the love that brought us together.
Friday, July 22, 2005
today: was a MIRACLE!!! [okay, not really one. but a event that brought our hearts together and made me realise one thing.]
hee2. something to praise the lord about. the committee was meant to meet up today at KAP for some confirmation and planning to do.
well, at first melissa and i thought there'll be only a handful like 3 to 5 turning up really. when we first reached, there was only, MACHO mel, GRACEFUL grace and me.
however, guess what. God brought our hearts together, realising the committment we made and how badly we wanted to do this camp planning for OC. one by one, nicole who was supposedly meant to have training, turned up! cheryl too came to help out. lauren came in though much later, she still came! christopher was next to turn up, though all tired and was nodding his head off at the meeting, he came! hee2. plus, which after, prescilla arrived. qiyang was followed, who came from training i presume [real late, late!!!] plus benjamin was the last.. but not least.
yeah. of course, there were others that wanted to come, but could not dued to some school activities and other events. yet, we all know that, what really brought us together was cause we all wanted to do THIS. though the i admit, not all of us are as close and united as gluestick, maskingtape, sotchtape... but, im sure, that we would slowly day by day become united by heart and mind. x) the next thing you'll know, we'll become superglue!
and yes, the person who made it possible was the one who first loved us. the one who stirred our hearts to come together. the one who we want to show our affection towards and serve him. Our Father, Lord, God. =)
::.i thank you lord for giving me these special special frenx.::
prayer request/confirm sonicfest tix buyers.
Thursday, July 21, 2005
so sorry bout the pics posting thingys. =( im pretty bad with this... [thats the bad news about asking me to do computer stuff like this, im a comp geek]
anyways, the good news is: cheryl's helping me do it TONIGHT! so yeahx... keep your eyes out for the latest pics k? we've loads. serious!
uncle andrew [sec2&3 gal's cell faciliator]: daughter, annabell is appealing to get into MG pri. lets all pray for her and hopefully, if its god's will, annabell would get in. cause we all know that uncle andrew is really FREAKING OUT bout annabell's posting. =) because he really wants a good schooling enviroment for his daughter and MG would one day groom the little girl into a young fine lady and grow in her walk with lord jesus.
jeremy: having rugby compeition against unity sec tomorrow [if im not wrong], support him through your little prayer k? x) pray for strength, energy and most importantly, a good game.
everyone: for those having up coming test. pray for wisdom and the preservence to study. ask the lord to give you a mind fresh for the test. however, hey! remember, praying alone wont help, u gotta study so that the lord can HELP u recall what we've learnt.
oc camp committee: the meeting tomorrow, lets pray for a productive meeting and good frequency between each other... cause unity, giving way to each other and understanding each other is the factors for a good sucessful camp! this is our first yr that we're doing this up and coming camp [with btw, is gonna be a great hit] so yeahx... lets all pray that thru all the busy hetic life each volunteer is going thru, that their commitment to the lord, wanting to serve his is on their top list of their to-do list. oh! and pray that their theme would come to them yeahx? >.<
those facing trails and is trouble: pray that they will soon understand why so. remember guys, god has a plan each for everyone of you... and these are just barriers to pass, the reward would be greatest at the end of the track. remember that for every unhappyness there is a rainbow behind it. no sadness, you wont know whats happiness. so treasure... =) pray for preservence.
**anyone who has a prayer request? email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org these include events such as test, compeitions, anyone sick, etc.
oh course, do not forget, your little own prayer to the lord thanking him for all he has done.
another annoucment: Sonicfest tickets.
those who wants them: ($22.50)
is these all? pls confirm.
.:: spread the little oc-sianz love around! ::.
acoustic sunday - band practise

This is a test post from Photobucket.com
on sat, i was sharing with the ONEWORSHIP team about God's way of touching me.
5 years ago i told God i will serve Him. a hard man i was. i know of His love but was quite incapable of feeling or expressing it. God knows intimately everyone of us. He knows me ... and He chose to make me cry ... with tears from heaven ... so that i can know Him. this is no ripoff from eric clapton. but really, a perfect gift from God, for me. a hard man like myself then, cannot cry. but when i finally did, nothing can hold it back anymore! it is heaven on earth in my heart ... and it flows from an eternal spring that cannot and will not dry up. that is my God. our God. His love.
sunday at ONE worship, chern wei led us. there were no mikes. no amplifiers. just guitars, cheryl's keyboard, our hearts and our voices. i dunno who was standing behind me. but her singing was beautiful. into the chorus for "draw me close to You", it's like suddenly He waved, and the tears from heaven came. it is so awesome. so very very nice. dunno how else to describe it. i felt God's love for OC.
i told God i want to serve Him and i want to be in His presence everyday ... and for me, He gave me tears from heaven ... it is an unusual gift for a guy, but it worked ... and He also gave me more ... He gave me you all. so awesome! thank you for being my friends :)
Let go and let God
Monday, July 18, 2005
Today's worship was a good example of just letting go and letting God do His thing! A BIG thanks to the girls who came up in front of everyone. It took courage to do that - plus a good yank from Cheryl ;)
I wanna encourage all of us to continue our worship to God in our daily being; in all that we say/think/do - let's strive to make it the sweetest/bestest song you could possibly sing to Him. When we do, the songs that will come from the depths of our hearts will surely be a fragrant incense to God, and you can be sure that He'll continue to use&move us in a mighty way.
hey all! (:
received a message from claris (who's too tired to come here and post) about tomorrow (: we're going to colour code
ourselves! and the colour for tomorrow tomorrow will be..
even the preacher will be in blue! (: and you're ALL invited to join the blue clue gang! i know it's a bit late already but hopefully as many people as possible will get the message (: do try spread the word ya? (:
seeya all tomorrow and God bless every single one of you! (:
understanding is important.
yo guys, was watching Smallville just now.
and there was this scene that showed lex and his father talking:
his father : son, have you ever thought why questions are placed there?
lex: to be a challenge?
father: or perhaps to make a person humble? son, questions are to be answerred, but to UNDERSTAND the answers are what that allows you to gain WISDOM.
have you ever asked yourself why you had to do this and that?
why was this to fall upon you? why YOU?
well, this is some question i cant answer. but want to let you know, that through every trial and temptation you pass, you grow. you grow in wisdom, and towards maturity of a christian. you strengthen your preservence and faith.
every step you take each day, is a step towards your furture and away from your past.
thus i pray a prayer for you guys that as each day passes. we would grow wisdom, maturity and understanding.
to find an answer and demand an answer is one thing. the reason behind it is another thing to understand. to use what you understand in life is another level up. another level up gives you preservence in your faith with the lord. and this will carry you through out your life ... with the lord. =)
Divine Guidance of the New Testament
When seeking the discernment of God's Specific Will in our lives, we can be guided through these steps:
1. The Supremacy of Scriptures - What does the Word of God say? 2 Tim 3:14-17
2. The spirit if the seeker - Check your heart. What is the motivation? Ps 37:4, 2 Sam 23:5
3. The patience of prayer - Do we allow our hearts to be still and wait on the Lord? Do we allow the muddy water to stand and become clear? Is 48:17
4. The counsel of christians - Plans fail for lack of counsel but with many (Godly) advisors they succeed ~Prov. 12:15
5. The confirmation of circumstances - Are the doors opened/closed? Are there towering walls/barriers? Has God provided special provisions? Acts 16:6-10
6. The discipline of decision making - Decisions are made on the basis of personal character in its responsibility to God. 2 people may make different decisions on one situation and both be right. It's their circumstances and how God directs each. Ezra 7:18, Acts 15:22
7. The presence of peace - Do you feel God's peace? Phil 4:6,7
8. The supernatural signs of the Spirit - which may or may not be revealed to you.
One thing to keep in mind though...
"Never cut down a tree in winter." - Never make a negative decision during a low/down time.
"Never light your own fire in times of 'darkeness'" - Do not try to take things into your own hands. God's in control. Let Him lead in His time. Isaiah 50
Ask: What is God's Will?
And not: What is God's Will in my life?
I pray that we can know God's Will and discern how WE can change our lives to fit into His Will!
When God appears, let us disappear...
