The story of a man in pain

He thinks to himself, wondering whether he is that worthless, useless. Why does he seems to feel that he is being despised. He used to think that he does not deserve to be born in this world. Everyday he lives a life of pain and suffering. He wished he could just wish those pain away, but in reality he couldn't because like everyone else, he was only human. He cried to God hoping that He would take away his pain, suffering and depression he has been keeping inside him, but somehow all pleas and cries were answered with silence.

"Why fate has put me in such situation!WHY!WHY!" He cried out as loud as could, crying lonely inside his shattered heart. He has spent those years, walking upon that lonely path, hoping he could find someone who could give him the answers and comfort that he seeks. He searched everywhere, oceans to oceans, city to city, country to country... he thought he had found that perfect one. But he was greatly mistaken, thinking that he had found the answers only to be led further beyond the lonely path.

Time was running out for him. " It is now or never" he said. All that he hoped to be was never meant to be. He had to think fast of ways to release that pain inside him. He tried every method known. He only has but one left before time ran out on him.

How silently he wept alone, without anyone knowing how he really felt. If only....

How Do I Love Her - Steven Curtis Chapman

Well you know it's not the first time
And it will not be the last
When you find me here on my knees
Praying for the storm to pass
But what I am really needing
Is much more than just relief
I am crying out for wisdom
Only you can give to me
'Cause it's such a mystery
I'm a clueless man when it comes
To knowing how to love a woman

How do I love her
How do I let her know she means more than anything to me
How do I love her

Out of all the gifts you've given
Besides the very gift of life
There is none as precious to me
As the treasure of my wife
And still all the love in my heart
Is like a raindrop to the sea
When compared to your love for her
And that's why I'm asking please
Will you teach me what she needs
I'm an earnest man when it comes
To learning how to love this woman

How do I love her
How do I let her know she means more than anything to me
How do I love her

Well I know it's gonna take a lifetime
To answer this prayer I pray
But that okay
'Cause I've given you and her my lifetime anyway

How do I love her
How do I let her know she means more than anything to me
How do I love her

How do I love her, love her
Tell me please
How do I love her
How do I love her
Won't you tell me, tell me please
How do I love her
Tell me please
Tell me, tell me, tell me
How do I love her
How do I love her

The World has nothing for me...

It's true...
I am not denying it...
Why should I listen?
Why can't I decide?



The Virgin Birth

Behold, a virgin shall be with child...and they shall call his name Emmanuel...
Matthew 1:23

The first group ever to question the virgin birth of Jesus was religious leaders. How interesting! The Pharisees said," We were not born of fornication" (John 8:41). That was meant to be cruel. After all, He couldn't point to Joseph and say "He's my father," for His father filled the universe. Jesus had to be God in order to save us, and He had to be man in order to die for us!

You were the child of an earthly father, hence you have your father's DNA - you were born in sin. But not Jesus! He was the earthly son of a heavenly Father. He broke the cycle of sin before He was born. In the Bible, the sacrificial lamb had to be without blemish (a birth defect), or without spot (something picked up along the way). Since Jesus had neither inherited sin, nor practiced sin - He alone qualifies as "...the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world" (John 1:29).

I believe in the virgin birth because: a) The angel of the Lord announced it (Matthew 1:20)! b)Mary's husband-to-be accepted it (Matthew 1:24)! c) Elizabeth, her cousin, got it by divine revelation (Luke 1:4)! d) and the story was written by a respected medical doctor who'd known the character "...Know the certainty of those things: (Luke 1:4). God first laid His gift in a manger - then He hung it on a tree.

God first laid His gift in a manger - then He hung it on a tree. Today receive that gift by faith, and this will truly be the greatest Christmas you've ever had.

What's Christmas...really?

Bringing out the booze, calling your kakis, partying until the next day till you're hungover. This is what christmas is to some people. Santa Clause from the north pole, elves making the toys, children staying awake at christmas eve hoping they could catch a glimpse of santa. I'm sure that's what most children around the world think.

Christmas has become so commercialized that the true meaning and purpose behind such celebration is hidden amongst the commercialize christmas or xmas for short.

I'm pretty sure most of you know that Christmas is the day when a baby boy was born into this world. This baby boy was said to be the savior of the world, the one that many Christians believe is God's only son, born of the virgin Mary. The one who's name is called Jesus Christ.

If you ask a non-Christian, they would say that's the story too. But imagine, there are still children at some parts of the world celebrate Christmas but never knew that the purpose of the celebration was to remember the time when Jesus came to earth. The only thing in their mind are presents under the Christmas tree. Do you agree?

Santa Clause... St. Nicholas, whoever that may be, is said to live at the north pole. He also has worker elves to help him make presents for children. Santa is nothing more but a fictional character. Who knows, some guy/girl made that up to get their kids to bed.

" Sleep or santa won't come "

Children that stayed awake hoping see santa might end up seeing another "santa", a burglar with a bag, not to give gifts but to take them...how ironic. What I learned many years back, was that the name SANTA, after re-arranging the letters it reads SATAN, double the irony.

What Christmas is to me?

Christmas to me is the time I feel peace, serenity, joy and comfort. It's the only time I feel happy. There's this feeling inside me that I can't describe, this tingling feeling that I always feel when Christmas is around the corner. No doubt, I also do expect presents during Christmas...

This year and the years to come, the only gift of Christmas I would wholly appreciate is the gift of healing for my mother, whom has bravely went through countless obstacles- her operations, her stay at the hospital, the cancer...
I used to wish for better things, material stuffs.... I still wish for those, but compare to what I mentioned...I would rather give up every wish just for that one wish to be fulfilled.


John 3:16 says "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,[a] that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

God loves us so so much that He gave his only Son to die on the cross, wearing the crown of thorns, getting whipped countless times just for us to step into heaven. No human is willing to give his life for someone dearly.



Christmas is not about getting drunk, it is not about getting presents from santa clause, it is certainly not about celebrating a baby..

Christmas is about celebrating THE baby, who took those sins we have and took it with Him upon the wooden cross.

Christmas is about a King who left His throne to make earth his home...

Christmas is about God's son, Jesus Christ...


Christmas isn't Christmas
till it happens in your hearts
somewhere deep inside you
is where Christmas really starts
so give your heart to Jesus
You'll discover when you do
that Christmas's really Christmas
for you...


We were the reason that
He gave His life
We were the reason that
He suffered and died
To a world that was lost
He gave all He could give
to show us the reason to live...

Will you give your heart to Jesus today?

Busy week

The girls just came back from their mission trip today, I wonder....

how many pimples have sprouted since I last saw them...

*deep in thought*


Well, back to reality, Christmas is around the corner and yeah, as usual we've been doing lots of last minute practice for the performances. I'm glad the team manage to get the music right in less than 10 minutes. That's call God given talents! Still need the 2 ladies to join in before I can have a full practice.

Today's Tze Liang's birthday and also Mr and Mrs. Low's 1st anniversary. So here's a birthday wish to liang.. and also a blessing from me to the Low's... may you both be blessed with 20 children!


Nothing much happened lately. The year's ending, I gotta follow up with Barney Communication regarding my placing at the company. I also gotta meet up with my lecturer next April to settle my placement at Murdoch's. Alot to do, so little time, so many people to ask for forgiveness, so many people to forgive. Gotta get it done before I go.

Sigh...

If only....

something I got from the net

I'm not sure how reliable is this source...but well, no harm trying...got this from some email..

haha

PIN NUMBER REVERSAL (GOOD TO KNOW)


If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from an ATM
machine, you can notify the police by entering your Pin # in reverse.


For example if your pin number is 1234 then you would put in 4321. The
ATM recognizes that your pin number is backwards from the ATM card you
placed in the
machine.


The machine will still give you the money you requested, but unknown to
The robber, the police will be immediately dispatched to help you.


This information was recently broadcasted on TV and it states that it is
seldom used because people don't know it exists.



Please pass this along to everyone possible.

A Star Is Born the Musical

Wow, it really has been awhile since I last blog about events of my life or whatever nonsense I could think of.

Well, last Saturday, family and I attended this musical by Calvary Church. My sister was the leading lady@ Paige. At first I was worried, maybe not sooo worried that my sister would forget her lines during the musical. But when she started speaking, she blew all our mind away. She pulled it off. She was awesome! We're all so proud of her.... but all praises and glory goes to God.

It's gonna take me awhile to photoshop the photos cause there's like 100+ photos to delete and photoedit. So tomorrow there will be pictures, promise !


It's the month of December, lots of preparations for Christmas. Hopefully can get it done fast...
haha, no money!!
need money!!
