Spending time with my Lord

In His Word, prayer and ministry
The Spirit of understanding enters

Through the power of the Holy Spirit

Bringing to remembrance

The part for me to apply into my life

<hr> m<p> Inspiration On: Monday, 29 February 2016
Thank God and thankful for today’s trainer bring the Google cardboard and let me have the test. He wants to use it for e-learning education. Lord, if this is from You, please grant me favour through him to get job opportunities. 
The Lord is rewiring me back to myself. When I hear him shares his life experiences in being emphatic, it reminds me of myself. Everybody has been telling me that they feel better after talking to me though I didn’t really talk much. So they appreciate my listening ears. I feel so grateful to my Lord Jesus Christ for the people He places at my life when I am thinking to totally change myself due to being lied and taken advantage. I still keep my values. Inside I feel like changing my personality to stop from being lied and taken advantage all the time. I understand the feeling of being put in a difficult position so I choose to make things easy for others to grow. There are those people who return to pluck for more fur or backstab. I have enough of such people.
My parents and brother voice out their frustrations towards my husband and the Myanmar maid. They keep on instigating me to tell him to teach the maid how to cook for tomorrow. It is his decision and choice. I feel that I can’t breathe at home. The test is right that I perform my best in a harmonious environment. No wonder my heart is not at home. And I can’t focus and concentrate to care Huey and do my job. I feel frustrated by my choice to listen to my parents to get married. Instead of being appreciated and able to work forgetter, my life is in a difficult situation. 

Wish you all have good days and thank you.

The first verse is sung in my dream repetitively. Second stanza onwards are continued as I attempt to remember the dream. In the dream, I remember clearly that I saw the wooden serpent turned into dragon. Finally, it turned into real flying dragon. Then I burst into singing worship songs to my Lord and Saviour. Through it, many evil leeches on people are destroyed. People are healed. Strange dream.

Wish you all have good days and thank you.

Bait

Posted on

Oh, we are like fishes in the pond
Swimming with enjoyment
Until
A hook with worm
Suddenly rolls down
Tempting fishes to
Take the bait
Bait to be devoured
Bait to death and destruction

Hooks of the devil
Snares of the devil
Traps of the devil
Wiles of the devil

Temptations from the devil
Deserve our attentions to beware
Deserve our attentions to guard ourselves
Deserve our attentions to seek God’s intervention

To stand strong in our faith
To stand with Jesus’ strength
To please our Lord
As the ambassadors of gospel
To be the vessel of Light

Do we ignore God’s Words and choose to fall into temptations?
Or
Temptations are overpowered with our choices to stand in His Words?


Inspiration On: Thursday, 31 October 2013 from 9:12am to 4:26pm

The second stanza came first followed by the rest. But the first stanza birthed out upon ending all stanza. First stanza’s purpose and idea came from second stanza with word “hook”. It was an allegory to depict human’s frailty needing of God’s strength.

Solitude & Silence

In solitude
I find rest
From the noisy world

In solitude
I withdraw from the world
Entering into my own world

In silence
I cried of my contrite heart

In silence
I prayed to my Lord for comfort

In solitude
I heard a small still Voice

In silence
I regain my strength in my Lord Jesus
I find my voice

In solitude and silence
I commune with my Lord
My heart is ready to enter the world.

Till

Let’s fight the good fight of faith living a tough life.
By His strength through the Holy Spirit.


Inspiration On: Tuesday, 19 February 2013

In the quietness of the night, “Trust in the Lord” from Proverbs 3 spoke to me. Proverbs 3:5-9, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones. Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase.” Proverbs 3:11-13, “My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction: For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.

In dictionary, till is defined as: up to the time of; until: to fight till death; before (used in negative constructions): He did not come till today. Near or at a specified time: till evening. So no matter what happens, we need to fight the good fight of faith. Life has been tough for me. Before I embarked on my professional career, my parents suggested to me to get married when my heart is not prepared. So I listened. Nine months later, my toddler is born. Feeling sad without career with my son hard to handle, I am trying to do beneficial for God’s kingdom and future career. I did cry to God and His love gives me the support to continue.

Staggering heart turns to Stable heart
Struggling hands turns to Strong hands
Striving mind turns to persevering mind
Surviving spirit turns to living spirit
Soul is bounded, but is freed.

“Indeed, life is lived to the full.” That’s what I heard.

Valleys of the shadows of death.

The word “pure” suddenly popped out to me and I was attracted to define it. On Friday midnight, “Unveil” popped into my mind as I was listening to Music Album “Sailormoon S Music Fantasy” soundtrack of track “正義の戦い Seigi no Tatakai”. One hour later, “purity” also popped out. Upon waking up in the morning the word “renew” for R and “emerge” for E popped out. A few minutes later, “power” and “unleash” also popped out then “energy”.

On Saturday night, “inner strength” came suddenly. Followed by “tremendously” on Tuesday morning and “Yearning Holiness / Yeast-Free” in the evening. Today, the whole definitions are finalised upon removing “Yeast-Free” to explain clearly the meaning of purity in our lives.

Dark of the Night

Posted on

In the dark of the night
My soul ponders
Ponders about life
Life’s uncertainties
Uncertain about what the future hold.
Holding onto something tangible

But there is more than life
More than what is seen.
Faith, hope, and love are what
I need most in this life.

What can I do in the midst of my busyness?
Now is night
In the dark of the night
All I can do is to
Attune my soul with
The Lord on High
Seeking His will
Seeking His face
Seeking His approval
Seeking His favour
Seeking His love
Seeking His voice and guidance
Seeking His strength
Seeking His wisdom
Seeking His protection
Hoping in Him
To enable me to finish
My life well.


Inspiration On: Saturday, 03 September 2011

Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall abide with him of his labour the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun. When I applied mine heart to know wisdom, and to see the business that is done upon the earth: (for also there is that neither day nor night seeth sleep with his eyes:) Then I beheld all the work of God, that a man cannot find out the work that is done under the sun: because though a man labour to seek it out, yet he shall not find it; yea farther; though a wise man think to know it, yet shall he not be able to find it. Ecclesiastes 8:15-17 (KJV)

The above scripture resonates in my heart as I go through everyday life busy with my baby, tidying house, spending time with my family and even catching up with my friends. Seems that everyday is always busy.

Nowadays, the source of my inspiration comes from the book of Psalms where the Psalmist hope in God and in His Word during the night, which can be seen from Psalm 119:147-149 (CEB), “I meet the predawn light and cry for help. I wait for your promise. My eyes encounter each hour of the night as I think about your word. Listen to my voice, according to your faithful love. LORD, make me live again, according to your justice.”

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.

God’s Shining Glory

Posted on

Friday, 17 Dec 2010

Refer: Revelation 21:22-26 & Exodus 20:18-21

I went to Universal Studio at Resort World Sentosa with my husband and his sister, nephew, brother and sister in law. We played almost all the rides, just left two performances. Then we waited until 9:30pm to see the fireworks. It is my first time to see it glows before my very eyes. When it was exploding, my eyes couldn’t take it so with my right arm to cover my eyes.

How can I withstand God’s glory before my very eyes if He appears before me?

Especially now, I feel that my spiritual life is weak. Followed by my headache that never goes away. It gets worse as years passed by and even after giving birth.

Prayer: No matter what happens, O Lord, please help me in my weakness. Give me strength to obey Your will. In Your most precious Son’s name I ask. Amen.

“Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.” – Rev 2:10 [KJV]

I want to run
