Its now about 4.15 am .... Have been studying chemistry for like forever...

Conference with Pst. Pat Mesiti..
Its was indeed a fun and interesting that i actually got to hear Pat Mesiti preach live. The message was good and wakening.. his humour + logic + reality was awesome... one thing that i really remember is when Pat asked :

" should we give our nett income or our raw income?"
"Well, do you want nett blessings or raw blessings?"

This somehow is funny and in a way brought out awareness in me...
He spoke about the rewards, blessings ........ the best part is these doesn't come along with sorrow and curses...

Tithes are indeed very important, the important thing here is not that we should give tithes but it is more of WE MUST GIVE TITHES.

Tithes open Heaven's windows to you - Malachi 3:10
Tithes diligently presented cause God to consistently rebuke the devourer for you - Malachi 3:11
Those who tithe are those who the nations will come to called blessed of God - Malachi 3:12

* tithes is not 5%, not 8% but 10% of a person's increase that belongs to God .

Another joy of the day is that two of my friends, Heng and Hari actually came to church on Sunday as well..... Seeing them dressed smartly and actually sat through the whole service indeed brought much joy... After more than 6 months of invitation, and endless prayers, they finally came to attend the church service.. =)
The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.
God did not give up on me on anything, therefore, we should continue and never give up on the people around us...

Exams are around the corner... I better get back to my books...

Break Fast, not breakfast...

Since CNY, my sis decided that we should start fasting to pray for our family and the people around us. :) Since i'm only eating 2 meals a day, i can't probabily fast any meal. Therefore, i decided to fast NUGGETS and CRABSTICKs ( my daily breakfast and i like it very much)... its a forty days fast.. my bro, sis and mum fast and pray.. last Friday, i thought of doing more... fasting INTERNET. this is a very very big sacrifice.. my daily routine is disturb (wake up, online, go college, sleep). But it worn't be called Fasting if we are not willin to give up something that meant a lot to us... I started and it was a 89% success. (failed cos have to send online messages for college's club). There were a few main points of prayer that i focus on this whole week... dad's business, mum's health, elder sister's work, second sister's visa, bro's competitions, younger sis's studies.... my own studies, my friends, and i also prayed for a cell group member(so that he'll find his soulmate)- this issue just came into my mind and i prayed for him. =) this fast was interesting and i learned to be more discipline, more focus, and i'm a step nearer with my walk to God.. =)

Saturday, Keith talked about commitment.... Its easy to be committed to the things that we like.. but it takes a lot of strength, courage, faith... etc.... to be really 100% committed. His points were
1. Committed to know God- His words and Prayer.
2. Committed to serve Him through His church.
What about the commitment to study, family, friends, reletionships, work................. hmmmmmmm.....

there's still a long time for me here, before i leave Malaysia, my friends, my family, my church... As i continue my days through trails and temptations, happiness and joy, may everyone see the glory of God through us and that we will continue to draw closer to Him.

* Fast and pray is effective =)

New pillars, same foundation

All these while, YY cell group have treated me well, they cared for me and have really made me fell like home...:D they are indeed a blessing to the people all around them... Its finally that i'm going to officially join City Harvest... Having to come and meet new and old friends, i've come to know that God has place us in a place where there are countless people to care for us. He has plans for us even if thing does not turn out the way we expect it to be. But as time pass, i'm able to see more clearly what happened and that did i made the right choice. Indeed much faith is needed and that we must continue to pray for all around us... Today is the "farewell" day to all my dearest cell members, will miss them much and will indeed continue to pray for them. And today i also found out that another prayer of mine have been fulfilled. This is indeed a relief. One of my friend is currently attatched and i'm glad that he found what he wants. Today's cell meeting is more of an open topic day and we chat about many things.

Continue in this college life, exams are near and getting nearer and nearer as time pass. I really need to stay focus and not be affected by the surroundings. Self control and a river full of knowledge is what i need... :)

I still need a figure to pledge. How much? Is it enough? Is this what i can afford? What are my intentions? Is this the right move...... questions upon qiestions...

Life is like a "cos graph", it has its up and down. But all that i learned so far is that we should continue to pray and learn to Rest in God. Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all shall be added unto us... :)

All i'm looking forward so far is that my whole family will be happy and successful, we'll be able to testify to our friends in all ways, and that i'll achieve excellent results.. :) all the rest, i shall leave it to God.
