With this program, I will be trained and can complete 10km in less than 60 mins which i think is very good and I know I can achieve that. Cos when I didn't train, JP Morgan Corporate 5km run was clocked around 55 mins. Effectively I may lose 3kg end of the year. MUAHAHAHAHA

This is a great start! I haven't felt good for such a long time :)

A meaningful personal connections - LOVE

Blessings of the Day: Feeling Spiritually Refreshed Renewed

It had been such a long time since I was touched and healed by the Holy Spirit. The feeling was amazing. I shalln't focus on my personal problems but how God had led me through in this amazing time of healing.

On last Sunday during church, there were announcements on the Wholistic Christian Counselling Conference in Asia 2008 which will be at Faith Methodist Church for 3 nights. I didn't really take note but one particularly caught my attention - Experiencing God Through Times of Change. I thought that was interesting but it was abit of travelling distance from North to West and plus I did not know any of the speakers.

On Monday afternoon, Ray messaged and told us to go for the 2nd night which was the one i mentioned earlier. But on Tuesday I was heading to JB and I wasn't too sure I was be able to be back on time. So finally I decided to give a miss. I felt a pinch of sadness when the girls messaged that night me how wonderful the speaker was that night sharing on the topic.

Weiggy first messaged me to attend the last night of WCCC. She was raving this is her new idol saying this speaker was term as the Love Doctor in Asia. Next Mandy again messaged me and told me to go for the last night which titled - Journey to Intimacy. Seriously I wasn't too interested to go. So when Mandy expressed her desire to attend the conference instead of HQ event. I told her I don't mind going cos I think Kovan was nearer. Who knows, Jem messaged said she needed to take care of her mom and she will be skipping the seminar and go for the HQ event and would be easier when she returned home. Finally a few more exchanges of sms - I was thrown at this question - "PY are you coming anot?"

Me ? - No reply. Went to sleep

Next day, in the morning 9am+, I got another message from Mandy again - "Hope you can come tonight. Its at commonwealth. Its refreshing .."

Me ? - Woke up and go to work. (yes i wake up at 9am+ and work at 9am+)

After lunch time - "Py, u not coming tonight ar?"

Ok i Finally replied - "Coming Coming Coming Coming :)"

That evening when I reached, I was greeted by the beautiful worship led by Convenant EFC. The worship was led by their Pastor Fabian. The prayers and the words of the songs ministered deep down in my heart. It was a wonderful time of assurance from God. I hadn't felt like this for a very long time. Deep in my heart, every word just answers all doubts and questions.

Next Dr Huang was introduced as the speaker for the evening. He came across as a very humble man and a hidden humour. For the next 2.5 hours, I was paying full 100% attention and writing furiously the notes into my phone. The congregation was fully engaged by his teachings. I certainly have a fruitful time. It is more than just learning men are from mars and women are from venus. It is the art of the love language that most of us couples or even singles fail to grasp it properly. Getting into paradox fightings were meaningless.

When I returned home that night, I still looked at my phone notes. I slowly realized that I hadn't been supporting him well enough. I called him up and apologized for the nonsences that He had to face from me. I too recognize the efforts that he had been trying to put in to pay his attention for me. It hadn't been an easy time for us either. It was so much and too overwhealming many unexpected events had happened and we constantly snapped at each other non stop. That night, we talked for 2 hours sharing and talking what I had learn from Dr Huang's seminar. It was a certainly a time of healing not only for myself and for him as well.

It was really a blessing to be able to listen what Dr Huang had taught us. So ... Thanks Weiggy and Mandy for asking me to go :)

Blessings of the Day: I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. - Psalm 139:14
I turned 25. Ironically I am not too excited about this. I have to admit that the thought of more loads of responsibilities are falling unto me is beginning to load me abit down. Sometime the more wisdom I asked God to grant me, the more things I discovered that I need to change to become a better child of God. I kind of felt there is unseen pressure on me. As each passing day and moment, I finally understood that is how God is close to me now. I can hear His still small voice. During my days as a younger christian, I often asked, why doesn't God speak to us like how He spoke to Abraham, Moses, King David, King Saul, King Solomon directly. Jesus talking to the apostle Paul, John, Peter and many more. He spoke to these godly people directly face to face. Giving instructions. I often lament if only God would do that, the difficulties in my life will be reduced drastically. I don't have to walk the wrong path.

Colossians 1:9 - 14

9For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. 10And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully 12giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. 13For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

But however I am so wrong. Even with instructions given, men still makes mistakes. I often wonder why are these people so funny, ABC instructions lay before you, you still do the wrong things. Seriously, I wondered why. Since the JAP accountability group started 2 years back, part of our structure accountability is to do QT 3 times a week. With the book I read 3 years ago, I applied the mecury QT timechart in it to help Weiggy and Jem and myself too. By God's grace, I was able to spend at least 10 mins each day to read His word. By God's grace, my fellow sisters were making remarkable results too. Seeing one another desire to read God's word earnstly and faithfully and often we said "We strive to be an A star student next month" just help me to see that all of us desired to be the faithful child of God. As I deepened my relationship with God, there are many things opened before me. I felt very very stressful actually because it often shed light on our sinful nature and I just felt it was too hard to go on. Funny I was even blaming God - "Why on earth You show me this?!" The more i read the more despressed I get. At a point of time I just felt everything was meaningless. MEANINGLESS

If you asked me how did I ever overcome all this depressing emotions, I learned to pray. I am still not perfect even now. But at least somehow in the midst of all these prayers, I know God is talking to me heart to heart talk. Just like how He talked to the Abraham. Moses. King David. I felt scared and assured at the same time. I know I need Him even more in all these transitions in my life that is going on non stop behind me. I got to learn and trust in Him to ask him to guide me.

1 Timothy 4
Instructions to Timothy

1The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. 2Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. 3They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth. 4For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer. 6If you point these things out to the brothers, you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, brought up in the truths of the faith and of the good teaching that you have followed. 7Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives' tales; rather, train yourself to be godly. 8For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. 9This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance 10(and for this we labor and strive), that we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, and especially of those who believe. 11Command and teach these things. 12Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. 13Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. 14Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through a prophetic message when the body of elders laid their hands on you. 15Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. 16Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.

25 years old. This seem to be a magical number beside 21 years old. It just striked me that I am in my mid-twenties. Will I grow and aged gracefully and maturely and lead a life that is God will be proud of? How many more years do I have now? How many sets of 25 can I go through? At least 2? What will happen in the next 25 years? What will happen in the next 50 years? No one can answer that question except God, I suppose :)

Never expect my 25 is quite an emotional one and filled with much anxiety and thoughts. In a positive direction I prayed, that my next 25 years to come, is a life that is pleasing to God.

Wondering - will i still be blogging at age 50? That will be an achievement then. :P
Blessed Birthday to Me :)

Some Random Thoughts

It's been a stressful period (again). Many things are going like roller coaster everyday. I desired for a break but it seem quite impossible these days.

Today QT reminded me that actually I hadn't been quite contented with the things I have. Which can be quite a stumbling for me. I need to learn to be contented.

Studies is commencing in end of July. Is the final lap for me! 12 more months. I need to work on the thesis and the final module. The final module I had chosen was something that many people against. It is non IT module. It touches on media communications. Which means there are many chapters need to memorize and can test on my brain cells. I did contemplate to pay extra $52.50 to switch the module to another one. I am confident I can get a good grade for that module if I switched but what stopped me was the knowledge in that module will not have any use for me. I weigh the difference for getting an A for a module which cannot bring any good knowledge and compared to module maybe B or C+ but allows me to understand the media industry and brush up on my writing which can in turn benefit my thesis since i am expected to write a very long report.

Work had been pretty tough. I wish I have a longer break from studies before i started to play juggling again. I hope to close 2 end of the month. By God's help! Yes i can do it :) I am praying for creativity, wisdom and good management for handling the new accounts and existing ones. Today I want to announce that design is my love and my gift. I want to use this gift that God had granted me to work on projects that will honour God. I know there are many people out there far more talented than me and I know that by my own strength is impossible to walk alone. Learning that God will always use the less talented and ordinary people in His wonderful plan to make it work if we allowed Him to use.
