Ears wide open.

A young man had been to Wednesday night Bible Study.


The Pastor had shared about listening to God and obeying the Lord's voice.


The young man couldn't help but wonder, "Does God still speak to people?"


After service he went out with some friends for coffee and pie and they
discussed the message.
Several different ones talked about how God had led them in different
ways.


It was about ten o'clock when the young man started driving home. Sitting
in his car, he just began to pray, "God...If you still speak to
people speak to me. I will listen. I will do my best to obey."


As he drove down the main street of his town, he had the strangest thought
to stop and buy a gallon of milk.

He shook his head and said out loud, "God is that you?" He didn't get a
reply and started on toward home.

But again, the thought, buy a gallon of milk.


The young man thought about Samuel and how he didn't recognize the voice
of God, and how little Samuel ran to Eli.

"Okay, God, in case that is you, I will buy the milk." It didn't seem like
too hard a test of obedience. He could always use the milk. He stopped and
purchased the gallon of milk and started off toward home.

As he passed Seventh Street, he again felt the urge, "Turn Down that
street."


This is crazy he thought and drove on past the intersection.


Again, he felt that he should turn down Seventh Stree t.


At the next intersection, he turned back and headed down Seventh.


Half jokingly, he said out loud, "Okay, God, I will".


He drove several blocks, when suddenly, he felt like he should stop. He
pulled over to the curb and looked around. He was in semi commercial area
of town. It wasn't the best but it wasn't the worst of neighborhoods
either. The businesses were closed and most of the houses looked dark like
the people were already in bed.

Again, he sensed something, "Go and give the milk to the people in the
house across the street." The young man looked at the house. It was dark
and it looked like the people were either gone or they were already
asleep. He started to open the door and then sat back in the car seat.

"Lord, this is insane. Those people are asleep and if I wake them up, they
are going to be mad and I will look stupid." Again, he felt like he should
go and give the milk.

Finally, he opened the door, "Okay God, if this is you, I will go to the
door and I will give them the milk. If you want me to look like a crazy
person, okay. I want to be obedient. I guess that will count for something
but if they don't answer right away, I am out of here."

He walked across the street and rang the bell. He could hear some noise
inside. A man's voice yelled out, "Who is it? What do you want?" Then the
door opened before the young man could get away.

The man was standing there in his jeans and T-shirt. He looked like he


just got out of bed. He had a strange look on his face and he didn't seem
too happy to have some stranger standing on his doorstep. "What is it?"

The young man thrust out the gallon of milk, "Here, I brought this to
you." The man took the milk and rushed down a hallway.

Then from down the hall came a woman carrying the milk toward the kitchen.
The man was following her holding a baby. The baby was crying. The man had
tears streaming down his face.

The man began speaking and half crying, "We were just praying. We had some
big bills this month and we ran out of money. We didn't have any milk for
our baby. I was just praying and asking God to show me how to get some
milk."

His wife in the kitchen yelled out, "I ask him to send an Angel with some.
Are you an Angel?"

The young man reached into his wallet and pulled out all the money he had
on him and put in the man's hand. He turned and walked back toward his car
and the tears were streaming down his face.

He knew that God still answers prayers.



a new generation. a new love. a new birth.

iloveyou guys. for being my BASICs. (:

i think remembering the feeling of God's first love and then later just completely not feel it cause we often leave God in the backseat (when we always protect ourselves by saying we're not, just that you know you're living a lie, a delusion, a denial) is the ultimate worse feeling on earth.

that was what i've been feeling over the past weeks.

today, i realised how strong the word "BASIC" is to me and to you.

God not only let us chose our walk in him, but he knows being humans its always hard to keep on the same track (that makes life boring). so Basics, he placed them up down left right beside you 360 spherical bungee turn there for you.

Be it the girl/guy sitting beside you at church or even that stranger you just keep seeing around church. they keep you in track with God. they are accountable for you.

because BASICs, are you're very foundation. without basics, you see a hurdle, its so easy for you to crumble and fall. Basics are there, to listen to you, to see you through these hurdles. being accountable for you.

God knows you sidetrack, but he'll never let you stray far. in the end, bringing you back to him. no doubt it may be 365 days long, but... what matters most, is the events (through pain, happiness and tears) bringing you back to him.

cause in him, there, the ultimate joy is.

.:: have you experienced it? ::.
its time.



One Voice.

The article that captured the hearts and minds of the OC was most certainly the review of the first ever OC camp. Those of you who did not go for the camp due to what ever reasons, the coverage of the One Camp by the One Voice people was certainly rich in information. With aid from the photos, you could see how much fun the OC camp was.

Wish you were there. Haha.



a new dae
Tuesday, March 07, 2006

oh my grass.i've waited like twenty flipping minutes to get this outta my system and i've waited so flipping long i can't remember * about what i wanted to post!!HURR.btw all the *s are things i want to say but i shouldn't so you can fill them up with what you want to (;

ANYWAEZ.yehh.i was reading the book by chuck swindoll,so you wanna be like Christ?sorta like that book by diane duane so you wanna be a wizard.yehh.i guess i just read this part where it sorta reiterated that sermon we had at camp,bout the 3 Rs,where the first one was to remember your first love.or i guess what chuck was aiming for was remember what it was like,and go back to that.coz i guess right now,you'll find like church *ing boring.no joke.i mean,i facilitate the sece 2 class and i'm bored outta my mind coz none of you wanna speak up unless you'll get arrowed (;

but that's not the point.em,i guess what is is that to just remember and recollect what it was like that time when you decided you reallae wanted to become a Christian and live a life for God.if you tell me you can't remember that coz you were a baby i'll slap you.hahahh i mean like in your recent memory (: like...sayy mebb3 it was at loveactually\2005 hehh.or mebb3 festival of praise,or sonicfest or other stuff.can you remember that reallae nice,warm feeling of like fluff?yar.and just carry that feeling in your heart.i can't tell you everything coz i'm only on page 12.hahahh (: buttttt...what i can tell you is that remembering how you felt that veryvery first time,will bring you a step closer to Christ.that way,your heart will be warm,and that's what's important.if you like remember just the doctrine and memory verses,what goot are they if you don't inculcate them into your lives right?HURR.that was a no-brainer for you,i'm sure (;

it's sorta poetic,to think of things this way.Christ wouldn't have wanted our discussion groups to be stone dead and people only talk when they get poked and prodded at by facilitators[ahemahem] (: is it coz it's awfully boring or that you've heard the same thing time and again?sometimes it's reallae hard to imagine whatever you discuss in class being in effect on your life coz it's just so irrelevant.grass knows i don't give a * bout it anymore.but that doesn't mean you stop trying to.hahh i'm so *ing contradictory (; and the point of this post was......?hahahh oh wellsh i don't reallae give a rat's *.think of it what you will (; but there aren't much things better than that first experience with Christ.hahahh :D

Patrick's hokkien cheer has won the day and capture the attention and hearts of those who attended channel one that day. Now we all noe what Pewpew is thinking off half the time. Haha.

If you missed the first ever session of channel one, there will be another episode next sat at the OC room from 3 to 5. And aft channel one, those interested in the teengames can stay back as there MAY be a training session for the Gal and Guy capt ball and Soccer.

Channel one is fun and if you are still hesitant bout going for it, HESITATE NO MORE! Jus come and try it out. What is life without the unknowns.

okay there's an arguement going on, so i feel the need to involve myself. :P

but anyway, seriously i just dont get why some people are pissed that there isn't really fellowship, cause i wouldnt really call it fellowship you know?

like when the so called 'clique-ish' worship team goes out after church is that called church fellowship? uh no? why? because it's just a group of people in church that are closer to each other than the rest, that decide that they want to go grab a bite and hang out.

obviously you can't be everyones good friend right? but there are people that do click with each other and go out with each other and have fun while at it. you can't say it's unfair and we're being clique-ish and what not cause your not involved.

i mean in normal society im sure you stick to a clique or group of friends right? so what's the difference here? nothing. if you want to be included then maybe you should actually take a bold step forward and TRY to mingle and make friends.

but anyway to close, dont complain cause your not part of something. but be pro-active and come forward and make an effort to be involved, no one is responsible for making you feel part of the church, we can only encourage you so much, the rest is up to you and your willingness to make an effort to make friends and stuff.

okay rant over.

uh yeah.

study hard.

live long and prosper.


okay bye haha.
