For a Season

Hello, I was beginning to wonder when will my weekend ever come! Finally. I spent my day off meeting with four different groups of lovely people. My brother, church BS girls, cheer com and my ED's surprise farewell dinner all the way at Changi Business Park!

It's Hannah's last week at work. My boss and mentor these past 2 months, I'm going to miss her much. I could never ask for someone like her. She often gathers us to pray for situations we might be facing. She's always so patient to teach and humble to learn. When she broke the news to the staff that she's resigning... no one spoke much that day. That's the impact she's made in our lives! The energy she gives to our office is irreplaceable.

Though I'm sad, I'm happy for her. Trusting that God will bring the next brave and godly ED!

Only He knows

I used to withdraw when things went wrong in my life, but I guess as I grow older I begin to realize that bad things are sometimes the best things that could ever happen to me. God sometimes allows things to fall apart just to remind me of my total dependence on Him. This season of my life has definitely been the best and worst for which I'm grateful for.

I grew to express myself in person, I grew to say "no" as I never like turning people down and I grew to obey God more and more. I believe that working at Girls' Brigade Headquarters since 2 Aug is where God has placed me in this season of life and am absolutely loving it, though I face many challenges. This is not a job to me, this is ministry! I don't know why some don't see it that way? Giving up my Saturdays wasn't easy, that meant that I would be less involved in church. I had to pray for a lot of understanding and discernment for myself and the people around me.

You know, I kind of forgot how much I used to love blogging here and I think a blog should be totally honest and not just what you want to project your life to be, for others to see. I enjoy sharing with people and at the end of the day, everyone of us, regardless of lifestyles, age difference, country and interest, we can inspire and encourage each other knowingly/unknowingly.

A lil backdated but...

Yes, somebody sneaked into my heart quite sometime ago...
Good friends since we were both 13, we've come a long way.
Indeed, in His time He makes all things beautiful... in His time.

an open wound...

...a cut deep enough that the pain cannot be forgotten and the wound would take time to heal, as much as I pray that with God's strength it would be a faster process. An environment that I thought as "safe" since I was a young child, no longer stands to be. In the first place I never really felt it, I just accepted it as a matter of fact till it hit hard this time. My eyes have been opened and I now stand guarded.

I write this with disappointment rather than hurt because I have chosen to forgive. We are all humans, I understand.

praying for the nations

"Talking to men for God is a great thing, but talking to God for men is greater still." -E.M. Bounds

an amazing day, serving together with an amazing team all because of our amazing God. Many were moved to tears. Lord, You have told us that if your people would pray You will heal our land as we seek Your Holy face. We'll turn from all our wicked ways, hear from Heaven even now as we've prayed!

God answered one of my prayers on this very day, one that I had spent too much time worrying. I actually freaked myself out and lost sleep over it. I was brought back down on my knees and there He heard my cry. I really need this and i'm going to schedule this more often.

Start well, End well!

Life has been a flurry of activities, life changing events... I don't know who ever comes here any longer. Maybe that's why I've finally decided to update this space haha. I'm hearing jingle bells already, 2 more weeks to Christmas break!

The end-quarter symptoms are showing once again. This coming week is another highly stressful one... the intensity of 5 modules is breathing down my neck. 2 essays due, 10 pages each and I'm at zero word count! 1 report and preparing for RFKC (Royal Family Kid's Camp) training this Sat. I'm doing a session for the counselors.

This final year has been really tough. I woke up this morning wondering if I am going to make it, or if anything I do would make a difference anyway. But i guess whether or not it does, at least I can say I tried and gave it my all.

I know some people that holds the most stressful jobs in an ever fluctuating environment. But yet each time I see them, they have this smile on their faces, genuine happiness in their hearts and always so calm and objective. It makes me wonder... are they for real? Such an inspiration. It's a choice to make!

It's really by the grace of God that I've come this far and I also got to say that God has sent me a special angel who's been so encouraging and loving! I'm reminded of how everything is made beautiful in His time and we just gotta keep trusting Him even when the future seems bleak.
