Everyone Has a Story. Meet Nhiet by One7

Posted on

Chris Martin is a minister of God who leaves his comfort zone to minister to the needy and see God’s work upon people’s lives. His life is changed by the people whom he has met at One7. I’m also looking forward to see his new posts.

At One7, our goal is to raise up a generation of Jeremiah’s who will go out into the world and share the Gospel of Christ. The beauty of grace is that God can use an imperfect vessel to illustrate His ultimate perfection. The youth of One7 would be the first to tell you that they are not perfect. They make mistakes. They struggle. They fall. The good news is that they get back up and keep moving forward because, when they are weak, God is powerful.

Over the next several months, we want to introduce you to some of our youth leaders and let you get to know them a little better.

Interesting funny story yet realistic, instead of fantasy

Have a good value system for babies to adulthood, and basically, all ages

Based upon human characteristics in dealing with conflicts, will not succumb to the portrayed hero Spiderman depending upon the strength of animals, reptiles, which is degrading and desecrating humans who are created from the image of God.

Every parents’ actions will be etched deeply in every child’s heart.

I have wondering the reason
I tend to get tasks done before food and end up with gastric pain
And my mother often complains of my actions.

Yesterday, I dawned upon me the reason behind it after I prayed about it.
My dad’s actions indirectly etched deeply in my heart.

I have sinned against the Lord for not taking care of the body He blessed with.

Japanese Movie “Nada Sô Sô” (2006)

Posted on

Yotaro lived sacrificially for his sister’s sake in order to keep his promise to his beloved mum before her deathbed, but he also work hard to earn income to fulfil his dream to open a restaurant.

On the day to open his dream restaurant, suddenly the real land owner appeared. Then he realized that Mr. Kameoka was a swindler. This ended him with a big debt to settle. His dream was dashed.

This shows he is a gentleman, responsible, honours his words, respectful, honest, and a hardworking man.

For the sake of paying his debts, he worked hard day and night until he lost his health. Despite his fever, for the sake of protecting his sister during typhoon, he ignored it and went to her rescue and lose his life at the age of 25.

This is indeed a love in action.

Suddenly, James Chapter 2 verse 17 to 20 came to my mind, “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?”

The first book of Corinthians Chapter 13 verse 4 to 7 speaks about love, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

My mind starts to wonder,
Is this what a disciple of Christ supposed to do?

James 2:17-20 “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?”

So the moral of the story is love in action.

An Over-Exert Lady

Posted on
Though a slow learner girl, hardworking is one of her traits. A motto, “I can’t do it, but I must overcome it and able to do it!” starts when she was drowned into a swimming pool at the age of three.
During her schooldays, mathematics is one of her favourite subjects with Chemistry comes second. She dislikes subjects that need to be memorised. Geography and history are the hardest subjects for her due to the need to remember the map and year.
As years passed by, it was the time for her to study diploma in Computing. Programming module is the hardest module to understand because she couldn’t grasp the logic behind it. But upon her cousin’s patient guidance, she came to love it because she could comprehend the logic. In order to avoid the selective memorisation modules during her bachelor’s studies, she chose the programming selective modules.
Undaunted by her drowned experience, she persistently learn how to swim from her father in a warm water swimming pool with her siblings. Believing herself to be able to master the swimming frog strokes, by faith she jumped twice into the adult section of the swimming pool. Though drowned, but she managed to keep herself afloat. Thank God for His mercy for always sending someone to save her. Ten years later, she is able to swim well until today. With that, she is very delighted and satisfied. Then she is still learning other types of swimming strokes.
Finally, during her marriage life she implements her motto upon buying a $24 Antonius four drawer container for household, she bought it at Ikea around Tampines since she was nearby attending a toy workshop. Without knowing how it looks like, she immediately bought it only to find out that the delivery charge is $50 after make the payment. She tied and carried it all the way to Expo without informing her husband for assistance. Upon reaching there, he was shocked to see the drawers. In the end, they couldn’t buy a lot of baby food. Moreover, she lost her puppet’s eye and an arm. Only after shower, her shoulders, back, and ankles were aching. These lasted for a few days. This is the most painful experience, but also a lesson for her not to over-exert herself.
So the moral of the story is
Though forcing oneself is strength, but it is also a weakness.
Your own strength can become your own weakness, but your weakness will also turn out to be strength.
This story is based on a true story.

A Picky Husband

Posted on
A wife seldom cooks food with oil due to her concern to eat healthily. So also seldom cook fried food. A dish of steamed tofu, steamed fish, and even baked prawn without greasing oil. Everyday, she drinks a cup of low-fat with high-calcium milk.
She is quite an opposite of her husband who loves to eat tasty food without considering whether the ingredients will affect his well-being. He hates milk and refuses to take vitamin pills. Her son states that her mum cooking deteriorates. All day, he comments the food’s taste is not salty enough and even not sour enough. Finally, he participates in the kitchen preparation. He remarks that in order to make a tasteful and refined dish, there is no need to bother whether the consumed food is harmful for the body. He even laughs her for always drinking milk, but his body is stronger than her though he smokes.
One day, his sore throat worsens a lot until he is scared causing him to stop smoking. Around one month later, he doesn’t feel well and decides to take a full body medical check up. He brings his wife along to do the same as him. One week later, the report shows his bone calcium is lacking and mild high blood pressure. It is quite a contrast with his wife whose bone calcium is high and her hereditary diabetes is under control. Ultimately, he forces himself to gulp vitamins and sometimes milk.
The moral of the story is
Stop criticising people.
Listen to advises.
Reflect your own words and actions before criticising others.
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath
                                                                                                                  (James 1:19 KJV)
