One Life, I lay at Your altar
One Love, I have with You
Touch me again
Fill me as You hold
My outstretched hands
One Word, You know I will follow
One Heart, broken to You
Use me again
Your mercies follow me
For all my days

In Your presence
In Your power
Holy Spirit, I surrender

CHC’s SJC ROCKS! It really ROCKS…

// October 10th, 2007 // No Comments » // My Journey, Spiritual

“Woahh!! Hold down your horsey, guys! ” Quote from The Principal of SJC

Introduction of SJC Rocks
Well.. Let me do some introduction on what is this all about. SJC Rocks is a High School Musical stage performance by City Harvest Church members to give a great show to God. All the actors are simply student and working adults which had no/limited exposure to acting. Simple word says “AMATEUR”

Sypnopsis
SJC simply means Subang Jaya College. The story is about a young ambitious boy,Luke who fell in love with a new girl in the school, Jenny. Luke grew up with a broken family and living with his mom and Jenny grew up in the strict dad ruling and ever exciting mom.

Jenny was felt in love with Luke during in the classrom and Luke only felt in love with Jenny after they share a tease laughter together.

They both pursuing to be someone in the school or simply said to be FAMOUS/POPULAR by Luke to be the hero of the basketball game and Jenny to win the beauty pagent. Many obstacle and scandalous happen between them while pursuing their dream.

My Personal Rating
 5 stars out of 5 stars

My Review
It was really mind blowing, entertaining, superb preparing and backdrop etc… One words to say it all… It was really …

AMAZINGLY AWESOME!!!

I was expecting a good laughter and fair performance. The moment the performance kick off with a loud cheer and clap. The acting and the singing had impressed me and what is most small little details that I put into credit that the crews did was the interval during the preparation for the next scene. You guys played a song and the song suits the next scene and blends well. GREAT JOB!

David Oh was the Indian Principal (great indian accent), the class teacher (great imaginary and nice blonde), the basketball coach(just like your ownself at work) and the fashion MC(great acting here).

Everyone was doing great especially Luke, main actor and Jenny, main actress. They really can sing very well and act perfectly. Natalie was great in her overacting glamour chic,Tracy was great in her dumbness and the dumb guy was really scary, I felt he looks like a pervert than a stud.

I am so blessed and praying for Part 2?????

Amazing 40 days of Liquid Fasting for Jesus

// September 13th, 2007 // No Comments » // Inspiration, My Journey, Spiritual

It’s already more than 40 days pass since the first day I decided to seek God to have an encounter with Him. I would like to share what happen to me before, during and after my 40 days of liquid fasting. It changes my everything in my life, I hope you will enjoy reading my real life story.

How did I get started?
I learned about liquid fasting through some website and had come real to me when I met Rev. Kong Hee. He was still fasting during that time he preach on “Cultural Mandate”. I was so convinced that liquid fasting is possible with man.

FOOD1

Around mid July, I always tell myself not to eat and start fasting. However I failed miserably as I tried for liquid fasting for 5 days to honor Pentcost day and it was really challenging. It’s really funny how things work in life, each time I says I will fast and I manage to breakthrough first temptation of FOOD — another better FOODis on the queue to test me. Malaysia is truly food galore with many juicy and tasty Urgghh!! FOOD around.

I gave up my effort
Things in my life starting to look ugly, my color of my life is getting darker and gloomy. My financial is screwing from bad to worst. My business is not doing well. My new position in a new enviroment is coming near that time. My family is facing a breakdown. My spiritual walk with God is getting rocky. It seems that everything that involves me is getting NEGATIVE impact.

Redang-205

On Sunday night 29th July 2007, I went down on my knees and pray to God in deep sorrow. I ask God to touch me and guide me to His Light and Way so I can seek the Truth in life. I praise God for not forsaken me throughout my new convenent with Him months ago and I told Him that I can’t even do anything to honor Him.

While the PC was playing the song Sanctuary live record by Singapore City Harvest Church. I speak through the Holy Spirit to tell Him about my life and what I am facing which I posted in private “My Tormenting Moment. I also tell Him about what I intended to do if I manage to achieve certain goals. I eventually spend around 2 hours just talking with my eyes close. I remember clearly that I said…

Dear Father,
Through Jesus, I got to know You are loving God. Thank You for providing me a shelter under Your arms. Thank You for all the blessing that You have shower upon me.

Today Father.. In the name of my Lord, Jesus Christ, I cried out to You to hear my prayer. I have tried my best to honor You but I failed into the temptation to follow my own will.

Father, I don’t know what to do and I really don’t know how to go through life. “My Tormenting Moment had set me back totally and I really exhausted and wanting to give up myself.

Tonight, I pray to You in the name of Jesus Christ that I will hold up your cross and allow You to work in me. I want to see breakthrough in my life and to see all “My Tormenting Momentto be casted away in the name of Your Son. Father, I give up all of myself to You and have faith in You. My Lord, Jesus Christ said that there is no problem that is so BIG that God can’t solve. God is our answer to our problem and He will provide to us when we ask for Him.

Guide me and I will follow Your Way. I will not ask the reason but to seek the reason with the Holy Spirit. Father, You know my heart that I have the passion to serve You and honor You. It is your Agape love that soften my harden heart.

Father God, I thank You for Your love to me. I love You and Your Son. I ask and pray in the most powerful name, Your most beloved Son and my Lord & Saviour, Jesus Christ.

AMEN.

Father God… I will place my believe in You by liquid fasting for You for 40 days. I give up my most precious life onto Your hand so that You will acknowledge my true faith in You to have this breakthrough and also to tell You that I am ready to walk side by side with Jesus in embracing “Cultural Mandate”: and impacting the marketplace and give praise to You.

Father God… I also commit this fasting to bless EMERGE 2007 to have a breakthrough in our event and many will not hesistate to come when we invited them over. Many will be touched by the excellency of Your creativity that You have build in City Harvest culture.

Father God… Also prepare myself to be a part of helper in making the whole event a successful. I ask this in the name of my Lord, Jesus Christ.

Father God.. Also I take this opportunity to pray for my country’s 50th independence day to have better future for the generation to come and to boost the economy into the first class world and also to bless us to have stronger unity with our neighbour.

Father God… I know I can’t made an impact to make Malaysia much better now but God I know you can use my faithfulness prayer to make an impact to bless my country.

Father God.. Thank you for your Grace.  In the name of Jesus Christ, all these will be done. All will be done.

AMEN.

I Leaned On Jesus
On Monday 30th July 2007 early morning, I woke up feeling great and fill with joy; I give thanks to Father and ask for His guidance for the new day. I felt like I am living a brand new life following someone. I had MILO(Chocolate Malt) for my breakfast and throughout the whole day I felt energetic and satisfied. When the night comes, I start to pray and I tell God that I had a new breakthrough as I manage to fast for the day and I will not give up till I fulfill my promise.

Life in Liquid Fasting
Living purely on liquid in today’s modern world especially in Malaysia is definitely a tough way for layman like me. I was around 86kg and my waist line was about 38 inches during the first day of fasting. I look quite plump and I love to spend my earning in FOOD. However I seek my CG leader’s advice about what type of liquid I can consume. He told me generally anything involves non-solid food.

HooraY!! I quickly made a list the “DRINKS” I can have. So far I had these drinks to keep me satisfied all time.

  • H2O (Lots of it)
  • Milk/Milk Shake/Soya Bean
  • MILO
  • Horlick
  • Mushroom Soup (only soup)
  • Sup Kambing (without meat)
  • Vegetable Tom Yam soup (without the vege)
  • Pumpkin Soup (from Secret Recipe. It tasted so GOOD)
  • Mom’s Boiled Soup (BEST ever. Typical Chinese style)
  • Fruit Juice
  • Vitagen/Solivite

So… The list is already good enough to keep my appetite up. Trust me, you will really enjoy these drinks and they really filling.

Hallucination
This happen on the first day and also the week almost completing fasting. It’s all about your mind, I manage to control my mind in order so I did not break my spiritual walk with God. I always had this fear of the Lord feeling in me and my Holy Spirit activates whenever I tried to lay my hands on FOOD or unrighteousness act. I heard that most of the time, Holy Spirit will tell you that you did wrongly AFTER you committed an unrighteousness act.

However, during my last 2 weeks of fasting, I’ve been having this visual of me holding a KFC drumstick and dipped the Sambal Asli chilli sauce then I bite the juicy drumstick and pull to side way. *Chew! Chew! Chew!* HmmmMM!!..

Temptation
I believe the Satan will try many ways to make children of God to stray and leave God so we will worship him. God was with me all the times and I am not tempted nor disappointed. During my fasting, many good stuff happen such as I have friend had the famous Claypot Lou Shee Fan and Fried Wanton at Petaling Street. My cell group had a Multiplication Party and they are having nasi lemak and yong tau fu potluck. It really looks good and smell terrific delicious. I went shopping at 1U with Syin and I found a bakery cum cafe shop that sells delicious pastries. Also I went to this shop in Mid Valley called D’Lish. I tell you that this is a great place for me to work as a freelance. I simply this place.

It is so weird that you have to put yourself in suffer to see the beauty of something you can’t have it. Almost every night I had yamcha session with my buddies and they had this Maggie Goreng which I seldom eat. That few night these Maggie Goreng looks so good and special and the Roti Canai looks differently tasty too.

However, all above I had been put in test. I go through it easily and through God’s grace I keep in my heart. Those FOOD temptation doesn’t effect my stomach to growl at all. Thanks to God I am again save by Your grace.

How I Did During Fasting?
Well.. I don’t felt strength-less or stressful BUT I felt amazing strength and amazing energy flowing in my spirit. You’ll feel like I am not fasting at all. I was amaze myself as I lead life everyday. Every night I had good rest and great morning wake up.

What I Did During Fasting?
Basically, many people will try to minimize their activities during their fasting to save up some strength for the next day. Well… I learn from City Harvest Church that giving is better than saving as we give out more, we will be bless even more in the future. I believe that and I don’t conserve the strength I have.

I start a badminton club among my buddies and invite them to play together after work every week. It started well off and we play non-stop for 2 and half hours each time we play. Besides that, I am already working full time job and I taken up a few other job to help out in my financial breakthrough, I’ve been running around seeing client needs and working OT almost everyday even on weekend.

Another miracle here that is… I felt refresh every time I had badminton session the next morning and it comes in bigger portion of strength. Praise God.

VU-Leader

Next is EMERGE 2007, I was called up by Marcus to join VU Futsal Team 2. Together with my brothers in VU as we train together, we finally manage to be in second placing for the cluster in Futsal Tournament. Thanks Lord for making me a helper in the team and providing Your strength during the game so I can withstand the whole tournament. Thanks brothers for the chances that you gave me.

Spiritually Challenged
During this fasting to keep every day walking in righteousness with God is really a difficult task for me as I am a new Christian and there is still many verse in the bible I have yet to understand its’ meaning and purpose. I had done unrighteousness to God during my fasting such as I had bad thoughts, treating my friends harshly, speak rudely and not honoring my parents. I repent to God for these unrighteousness act I have done. Although David Oh teaches me to settle my debt with God every night before I sleep and praise God every morning I woke up. I still failed to do it consistently but it never failed me for not doing it at all. God is great that He remind me to pray whenever I am free. Just like every time I stuck in the jam for no reason. Praise song just come by and I started to pray and each time I done that I felt my whole self felt even better and everything I sees doesn’t disturb me. (even the car in front of me was swaying and break abruptly)

Great Moments After Fasting
God is very specific when He comes to answering our prayers. You want that blessing, He will give you that blessing and based on your faith towards Him, He will multiply it. I totally agree with this.

My Business client that had been delayed their deposit payment had finally send me cheque and I have to handle 5 project now and the money is coming in swiftly. Therefore I can bless my freelancer a job and also I can have my debt reduced. Also I can fulfill my mission fund for the church. Thank You Lord for knowing my worries about my finances and now You have provided me and told me not to worry about it.

My Family affair is getting a little bit better. My parents looks like they are doing well and everyone seems to be like having positive life. Thank You Lord for making me to able to see my mom and dad relationship are getting better and the family is taking care each another more.

My Spiritual walking with God had been stronger and faithful. I learn alot during my fasting period as God keep showing me verses and sending me wise man during my fasting period. I got the chance to be anointing by Pst Mike Conell during his preaching in City Harvest Church. Sermon notes comes in exactly in what I am having doubt in Your words.

EmergeKL1

EMERGE 2007 had been a successful event and it was AWESOME! The whole event was well organised and the video crew did a great job. I am glad that many were changing to embrace Cultural Mandate and walk with God more eagerly after this youth event. The most amazing part of EMERGE is the effort that City Harvest church member’s determination to win for Jesus. They even overnight in church for days just to complete their task. I am so bless with the

Most powerful testimonial I would like to share is that my sister who had been diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer in 4th Stage had been cured completely. She was diagnosed with it in early March 2007. She had undergo Chemotherapy treatment and Radiation Therapy. Both done successfully but my sister wasn’t looking good as her neck is all burn-up. She also lost alot of weight. She used to be quite fat but now she is very skinny and she had difficulty swallowing too.

On 6th September 2007 which is 2 days before my ending of 40-days fasting, while I was sitting at Coffee Bean nearby my office to relax my mind. *Ting! Ting! SMS alert tune* I got a sms from my family friend saying that they are in hospital looking at the scan report and the doctor announce my sister is free from cancer. I was overjoy in my heart and keep praising God for His blessing. I called up my sister to confirm the SMS message I receive, she says the SMS is true. WOAH! I just speechless and told her to keep on the diet plan until the next scan. My tears was flowing like a river, I just cried out deep inside my heart and I can feel that the tears is beyond my control. I hide myself in a corner and keep wiping my tears. I just can’t keep give thanks to God and praise God for his grace. In that moment, my mind, my heart, my soul and my life changed to believe God 101%. That means God is my outmost priority above anything else, I never experience God in such a great manner.

Life Transformation
That night, I went back home and I dwell again to God and I tear with a great joy. I was overthrown by His love to me. I also receive a vision from God, it was beautiful and powerful experience which I never see myself in that kind of lifestyle and power. I am so proud to see God’s purpose in me.

God had never stop transforming my life to greater height and greater responsiblity. Today, I successfully working 4 type of jobs – full time IT Executive, part-time small US fund analytic, IT consultant and community service. My schedule is pack up and I felt greater and greater each day.

Aren’t you felt tired or stress?
Well.. My answer is definately NOT, I told God that I want to see financial breakthrough and I believe God open the door for me and holding me up so I face the challenge together with Jesus. Is always works this way! God provide strength to run my engine(body), Jesus navigate my journey(my dilligence), Holy Spirit be my indicator weather if I have doing God’s way and finally ME keeping my fuel burning with prayers. This is the whole mechanism I have in thought while God working in me.

Malachi 3:3 – “He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver.

// June 27th, 2007 // No Comments » // Inspiration, Spiritual

I was having some doubt about how God really guide us through and weather He is with me the whole time and God shows me this verse while I was browsing through some bulletin in friendster. It really amazing that this verse tells me exactly how and what God wants in our life. He will endure the pain we suffer during our refinering and purifing of our life the whole time. God is so amazing, He hold on to us throughout our tough time.

Thank you Jesus.

Here is the meaning of Malachi 3:3
This verse puzzled some women in a Bible study and they wondered what this statement meant about the character and nature of God. One of the women offered to find out the process of refining silver and get back to the group at their next Bible study.

That week, the woman called a silversmith and made an appointment to watch him at work. She didn’t mention anything about the reason for her interest beyond her curiosity about the
process of refining silver.

As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver over the fire and let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where
the flames were hottest as to burn away all the impurities.

The woman thought about God holding us in such a hot spot then she thought again about the verse that says: “He sits as a refiner and purifier of silver.” She asked the silversmith if
it was true that he had to sit there in front of the fire the whole time the silver was being refined. The man answered that yes, he not only had to sit there holding the silver, but he
had to keep his eyes on the silver the entire time it was in the fire. If the silver was left a moment too long in the flames, it would be destroyed.

The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked the silversmith, “How do you
know when the silver is fully refined?”

He smiled at her and answered, “Oh, that’s easy – when I see my image in it.”

If today you are feeling the heat of the fire, remember that God has His eye on
you and will keep watching you until He sees His image in you.

For the Christian Prayer is not an option but an opportunity.

“In prayer; expect setbacks, but refuse retreat.”
Richard Eastman –

Don’t tell the Lord how big the problem is,
tell the problem how Great the Lord is!

fnc

n95automail

TODAY I receive a phone call from Mr RAY, representative from Nokia (M) Sdn Bhd informing me that my team had been selected into the the final audition before I could be on the run for the prizes and the adventure.

Thank you Father for answering my prayers. I knew it will happen to me.

ANXIETY Disorder

// April 18th, 2007 // No Comments » // Inspiration, Spiritual

What is anxiety?

Let me tell you what I feel and perhaps you will understand what is ANXIETY Disorder means…

I FEAR for what is going to happen in a few weeks time…

I FEAR of loosing someone precious…

I FEAR of legalization matters…

I FEAR of failure…

I WORRY about just anything relates to me…

I felt WORRY about my action…

I usually…
Apprehension about my future and constantly runs wild in my mind…
Cognitively thinking in terms of dualism…
Easily emotionally towards just anything…
Amazingly poor somatic awareness…

I fear yet I force myself to be bold…
I am bold but I had uncertain fear…

I am happy to be with GOD but I am sad that I am sinful..
I am sad to be sinful but I am happy that I found HIM…

So many things had happen in my life till TODAY. I had been strong for the past 6 months and things just ain’t going right but I am glad that I manage to discipline myself to work on my plan eventhough is it not possible and I will struggle. 6 months already, nothing looks physically improve but virtually things had gotten better.

The others will only judge on its cover and NONE will have the intention to open the cover with open heart and read till the last page. I am keeping this book for myself and I don’t want to share with anyone anymore because I know the others will be hypocrite about my book. This is definitely common among humans.

Will you say..

“Thank you for the wonderful breakfast. I know it’s a hard day for you at work…“
When your last bread is over toasted becomes black and the last sachet of tea mixed with salt instead of sugar.- Husband and wife –

“Good job son, keep up the good work. Target yourself to achieve 1% higher next time.“
When your sales performance for the company only 5% from the gross company revenue and everyone expecting at least the lowest 20% contribution. – Boss and staff –

“Do you need help? Let me think of a way to get your out of your trouble“
When you facing some serious troubles which caused by yourself for your own beneficial and pleasure instead of sharing with your friends. – Friends –

However it’s been a challenge for the past 6 months for me as I manage to settle 1 of the problem with many helps. God bless others so they can bless me in return of my prayers to my Father. I am happy and touched that God really hear me. Although, Father blesses me not in my favorable way, but I had no grudge about it instead I return with a smile. He made me brand new each time he blesses me.

You can call me a jovial person as I love to smile and love to be happy all times when I am with any companion. I believe that my laughter and smile will bring comfort to others. However I actually hired God’s soldier to fight against frustration, stress, depression, anger, jealousy, fear and sadness. When I am solitary at home, I will break down and lay down like a mentally retarded man seeking for comfort.

Today, I lost my faith… I lost my optimism spirit… I lost my personality… I lost everything used to motivate me… I believe it just today and only today. Worries… Responsibility… Commitment… One completed comes a few other challenges which I am not ready for… This type of challenges will never come across my mind and I never thought it really happens to me.

Can I take a day off and wander away from all technology… all communication.. all challenges? Just a day off… ONE DAY to experience YOUR nature creation of this world, Father. A day of just me and You, Lord. You will be with me wherever I am going and You will definitely protect me and guide me.

Please, Father… Please, Father… Just ONE DAY of visit to Your Kingdom, let me experience this and I believe that this visit will change me forever You want me to be.

Just PUSH

// April 12th, 2007 // No Comments » // Inspiration, Spiritual

A story to share

 
A man was sleeping one night in his cabin when suddenly his room filled with light, and God appeared. The Lord told the man he had work for him to do, and showed him a large rock in front of his cabin. The Lord explained that the man was to push against the rock with all his might. So, this the man did, day after day. For many years he toiled from sun up to sun down, his shoulders set squarely against the cold, massive surface of the unmoving rock, pushing with all of his might. Each night the man returned to his cabin sore and worn out, feeling that his whole day had been spent in vain.

Since the man was showing discouragement,the Adversary (Satan)decided to enter the picture by placing thoughts into the weary mind: “You have been pushing against that rock for a long time, and it hasn’t moved.” Thus, he gave the man the impression that the task was impossible and that he was a failure. These thoughts discouraged and disheartened the man. Satan said, “Why kill yourself over this? Just put in your time, giving just the minimum effort; and that will be good enough.”

That’s what the weary man planned to do, but decided to make it a Matter of prayer and to take his troubled thoughts to the Lord. “Lord,” he said, “I have labored long and hard in your service, putting all my strength to do that which you have asked.Yet, after all this time, I have not even budged that rock by half a millimeter. What is wrong? Why am I failing?The Lord responded compassionately, “My friend, when I asked you to serve Me and you accepted, I told you that your task was to push against the rock with all of your strength, which you have done. Never once did I mention to you that I expected you to move it. Your task was to push. And now you come to Me with your strength spent, thinking that you have failed. But, is that really so? Look at yourself. Your arms are strong and muscled, your back sinewy and brown; your hands are callused from constant pressure, your legs have become massive and hard.

Through opposition you have grown much, and your abilities now surpass that which you used to have. True, you haven’t moved the rock. But your calling was to be obedient and to push and to exercise your faith and trust in My wisdom. That you have done.
Now I, my friend, will move the rock.”At times, when we hear a word from God, we tend to use our own intellect to decipher what He wants, when actually what God wants is just a simple obedience and faith in Him. By all means,exercise the faith that moves mountains, but know that it is still God who moves the mountains.
 
When everything seems to go wrong … just P.U.S.H.!
When the job gets you down … just P.U.S.H.!
When people don’t react the way you think they should …just P.U.S.H.!
When your money is “gone” and the bills are due … just P.U.S.H!

Conference with Pat Mesiti : He was an amazing speaker…

// March 25th, 2007 // No Comments » // Inspiration, My Journey, Spiritual

Yesterday I was having difficulty going to Church to attend the conference. However I prayed to my Lord and my prayers were answered, I am blessed with a transport.

HTV! HTV
Today, I’ll be on HTV; HTV is City Harvest Church’s latest update about the church activities and event. Seriously it meant to sound like MTV, =P , however it means Harvest TV. I was interviewed by Natalie the host for HTV about, how I committed to City Harvest based on my blog which I posted, and the title is 11 March 2007 – A meaningful day in my lifetime. (Part 1 of 2). I was so excited as I am very impatient to see how the video taken. It was all fun during the video shooting, trust me, I was nervous and trembling as this is the first time I am doing it for HTV. We rehearse quite number of time and our stomach is growling for food. God was helping us in the shooting as well. During our shooting, God guide us to make sure the shooting is good, and when the shooting is bad, He will send the sound of thunder to alert us. Thank you Father.

Sharing a testimonial from Patrick and Pat
Patrick and Pat, their first pledge for building fund to City Harvest Church was 4 figure amounts. When they finally fulfill the pledge in October, Patrick was blessed with a 2006 bonus, pay rise in 2007 and praise from the top management in his career. He told us that this is God’s generosity and Patrick then decided to pledge to building fund but this time in greater amount of his first pledge. This is not the first testimony that God wanted to share with me, it had been many, knowing God that He was with us all the time had really make me so peaceful. Thank you Lord, for blessing Patrick and his family.

Pat Mesiti
He is a person live up to the nickname given by many people, Mr. Motivational. His preaching was exciting and meaningful; his expression really put us to remember certain important word of God. He was talking about giving out our treasure to God when He commanded us. There is a few reference in the Holy Bible did mentioned that once He got your treasure He will bless you with more than you pledge to Him. Pastor Pat Mesiti also share his testimonial during his public preaching in Ohio, US. A big size lady carrying 2-3 children in her hand walk up to the Pastor and tell her “God ask me to give you this one dollar, that is all I have.”. Pastor said to us that she is very poor and all she had is this one dollar that she might need it for her children. Today, this woman still keeps in touch with Pastor Pat Mesiti and he can see the progress of this woman family changing. The woman who had nothing years back, she is earning a great amount of income, she is some top executive in an organization and she never stop pledging to the church in Ohio.

It was a good sharing of loving our God and He loves you back in return. He never back away or neglect any of His children when they in tough situation
