isaiah 42 : 8 - 16

last night i had cell... we had qinglong amongst us which is a bless for the cell. spend the most bulk of time talking about church and our feelings towards our leaders. it was a very good discussion that ends around 2am. very tired today.

today was just browsing youtube on hillsongs, came across one of the worship leader reciting isaiah 42: 8 - 16. hearing the word of God be spoken through the worship leader really bought me to tears... gosh, trying so hard to hold back my tears with teachers around me. how long will church be in this state of brokenness... how long before we sound the horn of warfare... how long before we fight the good battle... how long before You speak to us?

spend some time msn-ing with jingyu, encouraged her and pray that my presence and involved in youth MM will help them to be the next way of generation to bring about a change in the church.

8 "I am the LORD; that is my name!
I will not give my glory to another
or my praise to idols.

9 See, the former things have taken place,
and new things I declare;
before they spring into being
I announce them to you."

10Sing to the LORD a new song,
his praise from the ends of the earth,
you who go down to the sea, and all that is in it,
you islands, and all who live in them.

11 Let the desert and its towns raise their voices;
let the settlements where Kedar lives rejoice.
Let the people of Sela sing for joy;
let them shout from the mountaintops.

12 Let them give glory to the LORD
and proclaim his praise in the islands.

13 The LORD will march out like a mighty man,
like a warrior he will stir up his zeal;
with a shout he will raise the battle cry
and will triumph over his enemies.

14 "For a long time I have kept silent,
I have been quiet and held myself back.
But now, like a woman in childbirth,
I cry out, I gasp and pant.

15 I will lay waste the mountains and hills
and dry up all their vegetation;
I will turn rivers into islands
and dry up the pools.

16 I will lead the blind by ways they have not known,
along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;
I will turn the darkness into light before them
and make the rough places smooth.
These are the things I will do;
I will not forsake them.

reflections on 15th july 2009

yesterday was my birthday and that silly charlotte tricked my in believing that there was an exco interview on that faithful afternoon. i was so sad cos i am gg to miss my beloved afternoon nap and had to attend the interview session....

THEN WHEN I WENT INTO SC ROOM, MY HEART MELTED TO SEE MY BELOVED SCs there celebrating my birthday! hahaha... thanks a lot kids :)

i also got a few sms from students everywhere blessing me with birthday wishes and wishing that i would find my one soon - well, kids, this type of things cannot be hurried one. must open eyes big big to see, anyone can be a friend, but not anyone can be a girl friend or even my wife. no worries, when there is good news, i will post it on the blog.

i also wanna take this chance to thank 4J for giving me the lovely stitch paw and also the pinball machine. well, the pinball machine got to wait for a long time to play with my kid. as for the paw - now i got another cushion in my car... i hope i am forgiven for the wrong-doings i had done to the class....

as for 4F, thanks for the birthday song, although a certain person sing VERY softly right in front of me, it was a good one... hahaha... the recent 躲猫猫 game was fun, but need to tone down a bit.

dinner was good with boss ang, master tan, michelle, june n alex and boss chor howe. its been a long time since we eat together and be merry. only one that i missed is 二哥. come back fast leh...

the mickey mouse statue

hi weilee,
here is a picture of wad's inside the box...

been a long time...

its been a long time since i blogged... and frankly speaking, between there and now, it has been a wonderful ride with my Lord... hahaha... through 学生营, i have come to know Him even better... through attending city harvest church, i have come to be closer to Him... in summary, my spiritual life have been aligned back to God's will - and once the eyes of heaven are opened, i ask myself, how then can i help those who i interact to come to know Him?
by profession, i am a teacher, and therefore in a school that is not a mission school, i cannot and will not preach the word of God to my students, who i have such great burden. what then can i do but to passionately pray for them.
and then i got to read the following article by Rev Dr Kong Hee entitled 'reaching the next generation'.
the whole article can be summarized as:
1. 13/30 window - defines the age group of people between 13 to 30 yrs old which is the greatest harvest field in the world today.
2. God outreached to young people in the bible and they are powerful leaders in the past - Joseph got his dreams at 17, David destroyed Goliath at around 19, Samuel was a kid when God communed to him, Jeremiah, a young person, was sent to wake up Israel.
3. youth are open and flexible, they are impressible, idealistic and have the capacity for faith. and youth ARE the treasure.
4. how to reach young people?
- befriend the youth
- encourage them
- introduce them to serious, radical Christianity
- help them with real life problems
- show them a better way to live life.
hmm... that got me into thinking that all the time i spend with my students, and the youths in my church, i need to be reminded that they are God's treasure to me and to the whole world.
bless you who read this...

a bit late... but nevertheless...

this is my feedback for the 1st senior high chinese drama performance at NLB or NLB (i dunno wad is it.. but its at the national library) - THUMBS UP!
act one was rather funny
act two is a classic
act three leaves us with a question
thank you students for all your hard work - you deserve a big applause.
the next and most important people to thank are the teachers - you all deserve a louder applause - for guiding the kids to such great heights... how i wish the whole school can watch the drama, perhaps during assembly slots, hahaha, one thing for sure - we dun need to invite those drama groups to come in to perform to our kids IF we can do so much better.

ok - some photos to share...

one week break

this one week break was rather boring... cos other than the fact that i got cassandra and grace involved in the choir concert as the MC at vjc... there is nothing much actually....

oh ya... i was sick... and can you believe it... throughout the whole week... and now i am still stuck with a running nose and mild cough... grrr.... sian man! was actually planning to eat my heart out with durian... now it got to be postponed dunno until when...

same like the yrbook... many students have be asking where is it... no worries... its in the process... the whole book was delayed and will be out in term 2... so no worries.. the school is not that poor la... haiyo...

one thing to look forward to is the opening of the library.... yeah! got the green light to be in charge of the 'comic corner'.... got some good titles liao... anyone got any suggestions to any manga or western comic titles do let me know.. i will try to see if can get them... but there are some guidelines la...

1. i cant get any series which are still running.... eg: naruto, one piece, D-cray man.... etc etc
2. i cant get any books that have adult content... so books like lucifer, hellboy... etc etc

so let me know while u tag my blog... see how it goes...
or better still, maybe we can share our comics to expand the collection :)
