You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me! (Psalms 139:13-18 NLT)

14/4/14: Day 9: Being Grateful

Today is my 27th birthday. I was so moved by the love of my brothers and sisters in the church how they really make me feel special on my special day. Their sharing about me also touched my heart and gave me encouragement not to give up regardless of the challenges that I will be experiencing. Especially whenever people shared to you how they were inspired by my relationship with God. It gave me a reminder that, God I don’t want to give up. I will continue fighting over my sinful nature. I don’t want to hurt God and affect others as well. I also received a lot of birthday presents from my friends. Wow! It was like Im dreaming. I didn’t expect anything from them or even pay for all the food. I just want to see them and be with them on my birthday but God really made my special day as one of the happiest birthday ever. When God created me, He was smiling.

13/4/14: Day 8 

I was very emotional today. So many thoughts running into my head. So many negative emotions that I was feeling. I felt disappointed and discouraged. It revealed how impatient my heart was, that I’ve been praying to God about something and yet He haven’t gave it to me. It reveals how I want to get things on my own way rather than allowing myself to be fully surrendered to God’s will. I want to become dating before my birthday. And my birthday is tomorrow and yet the brother that I like haven’t ask me even though we have mutual feelings for each other. I find it challenging to be fully committed and be surrendered to God’s plan. I find it challenging to trust Him with all my heart and soul. I was crying the whole day. And then all of a sudden, I received a message from one of the sister from another group. She asked to meet and spent time with me. I felt so encouraged with her because she came all the way to toa payoh just to spent time with me and to encouraged me. I feel her concern and her love. That is what I really appreciate in our church. It doesn’t matter where you are but when someone needs an encouragement, the sister/brother is willing to travel to encourage you. And we prayed together. God, despite of the negative feelings I had towards Him, He didn’t gave up on me. And He still continue loving me, encouraging me, and making me see and feel how important I am to Him. God just wants my heart. He wants me grow in being surrendered to Him, trusting Him with all my heart and soul and to be secured in His love for me. After we prayed together, I felt so relieved and encouraged.

12/4/14: Day 7

We had a group date today together with my brothers and sisters. It was very encouraging to get to know different disciples from different groups. I get to know this brother who was a young christian. He is a very visual person. He loves spider man a lot. And his description why he like spider man struck me. He say that spider man is a kind of superhero who commits a mistake, fail and people kept on criticizing him but despite of that he still continue saving the lives of the people. Wow! I imagined how discouraging it would be to be judged and criticized by other people despite of your goodness. It just reminded me to not give up doing good things no matter what happen. And to not let others affect you from doing the right thing. I didn’t know that spiderman can be so impacting. Its amazing how through conversation, you get to know the character of the person. Im not sure if others have that gift, because for me, I am a very observant person. I observe how the person will react, the things that the person say, how they say it and even their body language. After we eat, we had an activity whereby, we will write a letter to God and then were going to tie it in the balloon. I remember that I did that when I was young. I feel so grateful that in our church, we can have this kind of date in the kingdom that focus more on encouraging one another unlike the dates that we normally see in the world.

Some people think God doesn’t Love or care about them because they have it harder than other people around them. Focus on God, not people.

11/4/14: Day 6

Thank God its friday. I had a chance to spent time with my ex housemate and buddy Xiao Fang. Its been awhile that I haven’t really got the time to catch up with her. And I really thank God for giving me this wonderful time together. I feel so happy seeing her and hearing her sharing of how God brought her back again. I really feel inspired whenever I hear people share how they managed to go back to God after turning away from Him. It really takes courage and humility. There are times when people have hurt God and because of shame, guilt and pride, they don’t want to go back to God anymore and just continue living their own selfish lives. Since no body is perfect, and the bible clearly states that everyone falls short to the glory of God, God’s mercy and salvation was given to us the day when Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins. I fall short a lot of times and have hurt God big time however, because of His great love and mercy towards me, it helps me to stand up, and go back to Him and repent.

For his unfailing love toward those who fear him is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth. He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west. The lord is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him. For he knows how weak we are; he remembers we are only dust. (Psalms 103:11-14 NLT)

To the Lord your God belong the heavens, even the highest heavens, the earth and everything in it. Yet the Lord set his affection on your ancestors and loved them, and he chose you, their descendants, above all the nations—as it is today. Circumcise your hearts, therefore, and do not be stiff-necked any longer. For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes. He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing. (Deuteronomy 10:14-18 NIV)

Grateful

9/4/14: Day 5: We had a midweek service today and some of our brothers and sisters who went to the orphanage in Chennai shared to us their experience in helping the poor. I can’t help myself but to cry while hearing their sharing. I get so impacted and made me ask myself what I am doing in my life now. It compels me to help. I need to do something. God has given me more, though I am not rich but compared to those kids, God gave me more to share to those who are in need. Those kids, despite of their sickness was still able to be joyful despite of their circumstances. A lot of times, I find myself complaining and being not contented with what I have. The movie, the sharing, the life of Rocky and the kids was really an eye opener for me to really stop looking at my own selfish needs but to make a difference to someone’s lives by creating an impact to them. I felt so grateful to God for making me realized all this things and for putting me in this wonderful community.

Understand, therefore, that the lord your God is indeed God. He is the faithful God who keeps his covenant for a thousand generations and lavishes his unfailing love on those who love him and obey his commands. But he does not hesitate to punish and destroy those who reject him. (Deuteronomy 7:9, 10 NLT)

For the lord will scatter you among the nations, where only a few of you will survive. There, in a foreign land, you will worship idols made from wood and stone—gods that neither see nor hear nor eat nor smell. But from there you will search again for the lord your God. And if you search for him with all your heart and soul, you will find him. “In the distant future, when you are suffering all these things, you will finally return to the lord your God and listen to what he tells you. For the lord your God is a merciful God; he will not abandon you or destroy you or forget the solemn covenant he made with your ancestors. (Deuteronomy 4:27-31 NLT)
