This afternoon, 3pm+, the news broke again (I was only expecting them to announce on sat, but to my surprise, it’s today๐Ÿ˜ฑ). This time, in a good way, showing that there’s finally light at the end of the tunnel. (Just thought these 2 sunset pics best depicts this)

Moral of the story – Whichever tunnel one might be in in life, there’s always light at the end of it, even if we are stuck in another tunnel again. Just gotta persevere on even when the tunnel isn’t in sight. Gotta hold on to this fact – No bad thing will last forever & there’s always a full stop to it. & that crisis/disruptions are there to make us come out of it stronger๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

This 1st step (from P2HA to P3HA in 4 days time) is a good sign. While this doesn’t signify the end of the pandemic, nor are we out of the woods yet, my biggest hope is that may we be much more aware that the new normal is here to stay, let’s be adaptable ๐Ÿ™‚ Well at least the vaccination plans gave me hope for the future.

1 of my biggest hope right now is that the nus commencement for 2020 & 2021 will be held in person, with testing. At least with this reopening, this gave me #hope again๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป (fingers crossed but hope for the best)

I would like to thank those frontliners for working and giving your 200% during P2HA๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป Can imagine the amount of workload BTS๐Ÿ˜ฐ

Looking forward to 1st dose ๐Ÿ’‰ at the end of this month, & 2nd dose in early Aug!

It might have had been worse, but it wasn’t. Just thankful. And grateful that even during the tighten restrictive period, I still had a job position (unlike last year during CB๐Ÿ˜ข). Can’t be more grateful that it seemed as though nothing serious had been affected๐Ÿ˜Š

Divine disruptions [An audio service message I just heard last night over telegram]

Psalm 37:23 (NLT)
The LORD directs the steps of the godly.
He delights in every detail of their lives.

Wow! Ended off Sunday with the very 1st HOGC audio message service with SP How tonight๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Snippets of the audio message i heard are on the images above.

“Closed doors, failures, could be God diverting you to something better, or even someone better”.So wowed from every single stories that SPH shared from his encounters from the past๐Ÿ˜ญ It just dawned on me that although things may seem not to go according to our plans right now, but indeed, as long as we remain godly, God will direct our steps. From SP’s message, I begin to relook at disruptions in a different perspective..of being a way that God could be saving us from greater danger, as a result of a disruption.

Thankful for technology, that we are able to gather to listen to this online๐Ÿ˜ญ So grateful!

Thinking about last night’s message that I heard as above, I was greatly reminded of my job search process last year when I was a fresh graduate and how it all ended up.

As I recalled from the couple of interviews (both in person and through zoom) that I attended last year, it all seemed initially to be that I could only recall those interviews being rejected and I wasn’t accepted. At 1st it seemed to me that either my efforts were wasted or there were thoughts of myself not being good/adequate enough flooded my mind. As I listened to ytd night’s message by SPH, and I looked upon the current job position I got in the end, I can’t be more thankful.

As I looked back, it could really be God’s protection from greater, unknown dangers (or it could be of me not being able to handle or get too overwhelmed if I was accepted in other jobs) when I received those other past jobs rejections last year just before I got my current position, which so happened to be in NUS. Not only there was so much ease and favour (with the interview I had only 1 phone call with my hiring manager), but the work hours are flexible and that I could plan how I wanted to get the required work done. Moreover, working in a uni meant that dining gets affordable and I could save up for other more meaningful purposes. Imagine I was found in other company, I don’t think I will get the same environment and condition. What blew me away was that I was that even in this new uncertainty season, I was just informed that my contract is gonna get extended till next year Q1 instead of ending in Aug๐Ÿ˜ญ

A job that I thought wasn’t possible or won’t even happen at all to work in, such as in my schoolโ€ฆhappened last year when I received my 1st ever job offer. After job hunt around SG, once again back to NUS. The job I got wasn’t really related to the environmental engineering field (which I wanted initially), but so far, I’ve gained so much more meaningful, transferable skills like project management, which can be useful in future positions. Even as now being the new phase 2 restriction, my job was not affected at all๐Ÿ˜ญ All glory to God! Can’t be more grateful!

Although there is no physical graduation right now and I might really be feeling very disappointed, I told myself it’s ok, at least I still got a position๐Ÿ˜ญ Believing that as I continue holding on to His promises & trusting His ways, He will bring upon many breakthroughs this year๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

Some thoughts about the current season

โ„•๐• ๐•จ ๐•ง๐•ค ๐Ÿ™ ๐•ช๐•–๐•’๐•ฃ ๐•’๐•˜๐•  ๐• ๐•— ๐•ฅ๐• ๐••๐•’๐•ช, ๐•ค๐•’๐•ž๐•– ๐•ค๐•’๐•ž๐•– ๐•“๐•ฆ๐•ฅ ๐••๐•š๐•—๐•—๐•–๐•ฃ๐•–๐•Ÿ๐•ฅ

While it might have seem to be entering another ‘uncertain’ season (again) with the heightened alert HA measures [for eg NUS class of 2020 graduation from physical becoming virtual (after waited for an entire year๐Ÿ˜ข], what warms my heart so much is whenever I thought of all these uncertainties, I would always be reminded of – At the very least, compared to the last year of today, I still got a stable job and a stable source of income๐Ÿ˜ญ I will never forget how difficult it was to hunt for a job last year, especially when I was a fresh graduate back then and the pandemic was still in its early stage.

Although it might had seemed that with HA would have introduced another phase of uncertainty or even possibly some negativity, upon thinking about the fact that I still got a proper job..makes my mind at ease when compared to last year. In fact, right now marks slightly more than half of a year I was employedโ€ฆI couldn’t be more thankful for this๐Ÿ˜ญ Versus last year of today, right now, even with HA, things seemed better than last year’s CB when I didn’t had a job and was searching for it difficultly (never again!).

I was reminded of how, even when 2020 had really been much worse than what I’ve experienced in this year (so far), I could still conquer itโ€ฆhow much more can I conquer this so called another setback, but with better circumstances than last year? It’s slightly a bit tough trying to adapt to HA, but it was needed for the long run. Yes, no physical graduations, no dining in, no groups of 5 or 8, delayed timelines etc were not everyone wants, but the testimony of how last year i had conquered was really a ground of encouragement that things that might have seemed impossible to conquer initially are actually possible to conquer๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป

Friends, if you’re feeling a bit discouraged due to HA measures, fret not! Just like how last year’s CB was exited, I believe that this year’s difficult season will get resolved too๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป Let’s press on!

What’s on my heart recently

We aren’t created to judge other’s every single actions. Instead, we are created to be loving, to be accepting each other’s flaws (we are all humans after all and no human is perfect), and to have a bigger heart for others around us…and never to be condemning others, or even be too extreme in a way that one has to “forcefully” force his/her POVs through without sparing a thought/putting their own self in the shoes of the other people. To put it bluntly, one has to grow up and stop forcing your own opinions through just cos you think yours is the only way. In a diversified world we live in, many POVs/opinions exist…dont expect everyone to agree with whatever one believes in. Rather, one should be more open to accept and to realise that each of us as individuals, arent perfect, at all. And just like life and the different crossroads of life, there’re so many different possibilities (even more that one could ever imagine).

“Maturity does not come with age, but the acceptance of responsibility.”

Never to have the mindset of eg “blame macdonalds for making one fat”. Coz to begin with, it isnt Macs responsibility to prevent oneself from getting fat, but rather OUR VERY OWN responsibility to ensure you dont consume too much of it. #Truth

Like wise with regards to social media, pls dont blame “social media” for making someone to “show off online”. & not every post on “social media” means one trying to “show off”. I’m not saying this to defend “social media”, cos what for I do that. As this is what it is. It is never about the OBJECT (in this case is social media) that was created, but rather the USER of that OBJECT who is responsible what wants to do with it. Social media is really a double edged sword…you can choose to let it consume you, or you can choose to use it for the wellbeing of others.

Of cos, if one decides to “show off” on their own social media post, there’s nth i can do abt it..and i cant be judging also since other people have their own lives and i do have respect for their decisions.

For myself personally, “social media” rather than using it to “attack” people using the keyboards, I see “social media” as a medium of sharing inspiring stories so that others can be impacted. & also, having a very passionate photography nature in me, I love to share memories online basically, to keep them as memories. No hidden agenda involved. (I’m sharing this here coz simply I wanna be real with you guys)

Last thing I wanna share is with regards to the topic about happiness. There was a quote that said that happiness is not dependent on the circumstances, but rather on our perspective. Just thought how true is that. Of cos, I really do uds that there could be some who either didnt quite uds it or feel its damn hard to relate to their situation they’re facing in. My word of advice – You can either choose to be suck in by the current bad circumstances, or you can choose to look at the issue in a different perspective…like why not see it as a way to make yourself stronger as a person after you come out of that difficulty? It doesnt matter if eg the workplace is filled with toxic ppl or not. Becos in life, it’s really about perspectives…and once a perspective can be changed, everything will be seen differently. Circumstances dont change at all & often times they are beyond our control… but our perspectives can be easily changed. try to look at it in a different angle… of cos, im definitely not perfect (i admit), but at least i try my best to see things in a different perspective. I mean, at the end of day, why make yourself getting affected by that circumstance thats filled with negativity? It’s not gonna help much but make it even worse anyways. If others cannot be changed, what we can do is to make an effort to change ourselves first.

Im sharing all this just cos i just wanna be real about it, and nothing else. I have no intentions of wanting to convince btw… it’s just simply whats been on my heart recently. Thanks for understanding.

Faith Essentials 1 (sth powerful that has happened)

Just wanna this something powerful that has happened to me getting enrolled into Faith Essentials 1, which is a brand new Christian education track that my church, HOGC, has recently rolled out.

I’ve just recently graduated from university about 4 months ago) and still couldnt manage to find a full time job. (Yes until now still unemployed) During Dec when I graduated, it was approaching the year end and then came January and February which was nearing the tail of many companies’ financial year, and right now since March till now April, Covid-19 has worsen the job search situation and cuz of CB measure, all of us have to stay home and as a result, I dont receive any allowance from my parents and so I have close to 0 income.

When the launch of this Faith Essentials christian education track came along, everyone was so excited to enroll, including myself. However, I realised that the jobless me wasnt able to fork out that cost, even when I could still enroll for the tertiary option for a lower price than YA. I didnt tell any leader at 1st…until my leader Zhihui came up to message me and told me that he can help to waive a bit of the cost of this christian education track… at 1st, I was a bit afraid of letting him know my entire financial situation & just felt that I didnt want to trouble my leaders (though i was touched when my leaders wanted very much to not let money be an obstacle for me to get to know into God’s word)…and just told him that I didnt want to enroll due to financial difficulties.

Soon, it was already past the deadline of 12 April and i initally thought i wasnt able to enroll Faith Essential (FE) anymore…till 1 of my friend asked me about this FE and I went to check church website and realized that we could still enroll it like just few days after 12 April.

Immediately I messaged my leader zhihui and decided to tell him about my entire financial situation. Then, he told me that after discussing with my CGL Daniel, the leaders were able to help me waive about 80% of the cost for the time being as i didnt have a stable income right now, and that I should focus on studying the word of God thru FE 1st without allowing money to be an obstacle.

1st, I want to THANK GOD for this powerful Faith Essentials! I just visited lesson 1 of this and Im already so BLOWN AWAY by all that Ps Garrett has shared! Because of that, I begin to understand God in a deeper level I’ve never before๐Ÿ˜ญ 2nd, I want to say, THANK YOU leaders Daniel and Zhihui for blessing me by helping me to waive this Faith Essentials 1๐Ÿ˜ญ Words fail to describe how touched and how grateful i am. Also, if i hadnt logged in again after 12 April to check on Faith Essentials 1 enrollment, i wouldnt had known that enrollment was still available. Indeed, it just had to be God, who engineered this circumstance to happen๐Ÿ˜ญ

My deep thoughts about the current situation

Just sharing some of my deep thoughts about the current situation:
Although now things may get uncertain at times, it doesnโ€™t mean that we should let fear be our default response. Iโ€™ve this thought: If you keep fearing, it doesnโ€™t really do anything to improve the situation at all, and the only damage it does is to make you powerless, loveless and mindless.
Another thing, I feel that instead of having that โ€˜defaultโ€™ complaining or any negative mentality towards whatโ€™s been done here to combat the pandemic, why not take this time to really show our appreciation to all of our frontline heroes for working day in & out over this?
In my heart, Iโ€™m really so grateful and thankful to have these heroes for working so hard to ensure each of our wellbeing. Moreover, Iโ€™m amazed by the level of efficiency that the authorities here have when it comes to the precautionary measures, which Iโ€™m really appreciative of While the pandemic may be on-going still, I believe that itโ€™ll really come to an end 1 day.

Even if some others still chose to complain & spread negativity about it, Iโ€™d still let faith be my default response & believe that weโ€™ll all get through this!

Remember, spread only love & positivity during this tough season. Letโ€™s make the world (be it real world or virtual world) a better place!

In a busy season like this, just wanna to take some time to pen down all that Iโ€™m really thankful for.

Canโ€™t believe it has been 6 years since making that decision to begin my life journey with God. The journey was never an easy one, it was filled with many ups & downs, it was filled with many tests. I wouldnโ€™t have been thru all that if not for Your love.

God, You are the One who already fully understands us even before we were born onto planet earth. Thereโ€™re countless things that we as humans couldnโ€™t understand…even sufferings. I just love it tonight that during the โ€œWhere is God in the sufferingโ€ seminar I had in NUS just now, really brought about deeper understanding of who He really is.

I will never forget this phrase!๐Ÿ˜ญ

May my hunger for You never grow cold, even in a busy season like this, where assignments, projects are just piling up. May I never lose the sight of building whatโ€™s important rather than whatโ€™s impressive. –

Tonightโ€™s seminar really deeply reminded me to always stay faithful to Him no matter what. He is the One who surpasses all understandings. Even if some might have doubts and have chosen to deny You, You will still love them and have them deep in Your heart๐Ÿ˜ข

Love how You always believed in me whenever I feel inadequate or insufficient. Just so thankful to have made that decision on that faithful day!! Cannot imagine how lost my life might had gotten if no one reached out to me..which is sth that always keeps me continue to reach out regardless of how dry the ground could get! –

In this year, Iโ€™m so excited! I really foresee even more greater things and breakthroughs that lie ahead! Will always keep this โ€œEverything (that includes bad things) happens with a purposeโ€ deep within me as well! God is definitely not done yet, & that He will continue to do even greater, bigger things that no human can imagine! #mylifefortherestofmylife #livingmybestlife

Deep thoughts from Sy Rogers

Such a extraordinary weekend with Sy Rogers in HOGC for my very first time! There were just many many thoughts going thru my mind right now, but I will just share with u all some of them as there were simply too many!

Sy Rogers shared about messages like staying pure for God, how to master both out mind, heart and soul when encountered with difficulties or insecurities etc… He even shared about his life story, on how God had fully transformed him from the inside out regardless of how broken on the inside he had been ever since a child. Though I didnโ€™t experienced similar events as him, I could really feel a lot from all of the services with him.

This weekend was the weekend when I was completely overwhelmed with how big, great, powerful and how loving God is, who even first knew completely about us even when we were in the motherโ€™s womb. Believed that after hearing all that Sy Rogers had ministered to all of us, many would have realised how misunderstood they had been towards God…. I was, too. Though I am alr in Hogc and been saved since 5 years ago, I still feel insecure sometimes. It can be said itโ€™s human nature to feel that way and also feel negative or like always โ€œthink in the worst case scenarioโ€. Though in actual fact, God is already in control of all of our situations. Even though things may not seem to favour us right now, it could favour us in another angle in the future, who knows? Why give up halfway when your condition isnโ€™t your conclusion? I believe a lot of us would just give up whenever things donโ€™t seem to head towards the direction you want. But in life, this always happens. Just remember that really, everything in life happens for a happen. Many would blame God for all that, but I know that deep in my heart, though bad things may happen, why not think it in this way: that bad things happened so as to empower you, to strengthen you or to make you stronger than ever before? Ever since I knew God, I regained so much more perspective whenever I looked at problems especially.

Another area that Sy Rogers preached last weekend was about love, acceptance and accountability. These really clarified so much uncertainties I once had in my mind. And most imptly, I had these revelations. I was reminded of how I used to be in the past, broken on the inside, didnโ€™t had any purpose in life, no significance, just thinking about studying and doin well in life (nth wrong with that), feeling no sense of belonging everywhere I went, feeling rejected, feeling Super negative etc. I do admit that last time I used a blog to brag and pour out all about my troubles I faced in school, about how people would always laugh, make fun, disrespect and bully me, as if like I was unwanted in the world. But ever since a Friend reached me out in faith and invited me to HOGC for service, I checked in to HOGC, thinking that it probably would be my first and last time visiting there since I wasnโ€™t a Christian that time….but the miracle was, and never checked out from HOGC ever since. That was all the way back in 2013. It was God, who pulled me up from that Super deep trench up, and accepted, loved me for who I am. Really, who would really choose to die for all of our sins 2000 years ago. Only Jesus. Whenever I felt like a failure, God is there to help me overcome. Whenever I felt unaccepted, God is there to give me acceptance and to give me assurance that He will never leave me Nor forsake me.

Just now when service 3 with Sy Rogers almost come to a close, during the altar call, I donโ€™t know why, but thru my spiritual eyes, I saw myself standing on the cross stage, sharing my testimony to thousands of people in a service. I was Super overwhelmed by that sight. During todayโ€™s testimony, a girl called Jing Wen (if nvr rmb wrongly) shared her story. It was Super powerful! Her results were like straight As, and her exam results in JC were like all subjects above 90th percentile, but yet she could still feel empty on the inside…and she even suffered from gastric problems. It was when she was invited to HOGC and knew God, that her life began to transform. Indeed, everybody on this earth needs God. Even those who have walked their lives astray….. before this weekends message with Sy Rogers, I had been thinking that these ppl will never get to know God as their hearts were really 100% hardened….. but after the messages that were shared by Sy Rogers, my mindset completely changed. Regardless of how bad oneโ€™s life had been, God is the God who redeem…who can wash all of our sins away. Everything can actually be possible! I really believe that these hardened hearts will one day get softened and opened up to God, for God to heal again…….

(I may be sharing some more thoughts tomorrow as itโ€™s getting late, but let me move on to share abt my recent breakthrough!)

Yes, my recent breakthrough! About 3 weeks ago, my Uni Friend got saved on his first visit to HOGC! Not just that, he bought the devotional book on that day when he came to HOGC for his very first time. Thatโ€™s not all, he even bought a new bible so that he could start to read it and know more about Godโ€™s word! Currently he is in his hometown, but he has already finished reading about half of โ€œDriven by eternityโ€ by John Bevere, which one of my cg mate gave it to him as gift just before he flew off last Monday! WOW! During last weekend, to Ensure that he wonโ€™t miss out on any of Godโ€™s word that was shared during services that he missed, my Friend out of his own initiative, asked me to send him any notes that I took during the sermons. OMG! My Friend recently just got saved only, and his hunger is like a 2 year old Christian! Iโ€™m so amazed! Also, when my Friend got saved, I just felt Super touched and just simply so lost for words! It was like the first time for me to witness my Friend getting saved and making the decision to start bible study lessons after so Long! God is indeed Super faithful as we do the mundane and pray! Indeed, this reminded me of the phrase taken from the Lifestream series that was shared weeks ago:ย โ€œpray the hardest even when itโ€™s the hardest to prayโ€!

(ok itโ€™s almost 3am! I shall continue this post tomorrow, nights!)

Some deep thoughts from last weekend (21-22/4/18)

All that has happened since Friday have really deeply etched in my mind.

All I have to say to God is: God, thank You for always being so REAL to each and every single one of us. Even when there were some who sinned against You, You still have such a big big heart, to forgive and to always love them so unconditionally, even when I believe there are many who still badmouthed you, or many who claimed how unreal You are or would always blame You for not working according to their own plans, etc. Imagine if all these people who in fact really need God..hear all of the words that You have spoken to them…I believe greatly in my heart that their lives will indeed never be the same ever again! Today, I have faith in You, I have my ultimate trust in You, and I am convicted to always keep fighting just like You did for all of us when we were still sinners… Today I pray for the hearts of these people I’ve just mentioned above to have an open heart and a brand new mindset, and not to let their circumstances or situations in life limit their perspectives.

Last Friday was my very 1st experience in HOGXperience CG! Admist the business of school, I managed to attend it! I am so overjoyed! But what fills my heart even more was to see how hungry the HK Xperience people were during the whole CG! That’s not just all to HOGCX! Last weekend, there were so many HOGCX delicates from over 13 countries all over the world came to visit, experience HOGC and to learn from us! Just yesterday, I took up the courage to speak to one Senior Pastor, who is from Faroe Islands, and I will never forget what he told me, Darryl and Riady: “I was a christian for 30+ years, since I was 19.” Simply WOW, and it pale in comparison to the “5 years” since I made the best decision. It just inspires me so much! He is already 50 over YO but yet still so hungry for God, still so hungry to learn from us how to build a youth church. Nearing the end of the services, when SP How and SP Lia prayed for all of the HOGCX overseas delicates for their church revivals and while the rest of the congregation prayed blessings for all of the delicates, it was such a SUPER IGNITED MOMENT, it was such a SUPER POWERFUL, TOUCHING AND UNFORGETTABLE SIGHT THAT I WILL FOREVER REMEMBER IN MY HEART/HAS LEFT A GREAT IMPACT IN MY HEART… Many many years ago, our Pastors said: “We WILL going to change the world.” Today, our Pastors say: “We ARE changing the world.” These are not meant to be showed off to others to show how glorious or how great we are, but these are really meant to declare how faithful God is and how great God’s power is to really bring HOGC to an entirely whole new level! I really caught a great glimpse of what it means truly for dreams coming to pass!

Recently, God drop a big dream right into my heart, which is to RISE UP to be a LEADER 1 DAY in His House! There were just so many thoughts running through my mind in this season. “Am I good enough to be a leader in HOGC?” was the frequent question I often asked myself. However, I was always so surprised by God’s response: “Yes, you’re good enough, Yes you can impact the world, even the friends around you, Yes you can bring a revival in your school.” It just felt so SURREAL. Thank You God for last weekend, which I really caught a great sight of it…of what it truly means to be a leader… “God, I AM READY, USE ME, CHANGE ME TO BECOME MORE LIKE YOU.” is really my cry right now! I don’t know why, but over last weekend, I really felt so humble all over again to keep growing…keep molding my character to become more like You.

Some thoughts from the recent TP incident

I really do not want to share the news post about the recent TP fight incident, but I just want to express my thoughts after seeing the news as I did not want to just let this news stay at where it was i.e. people laughing, jeering and making a joke out of it.
I was absolutely saddened not just by the one who started the fight, but also absolutely saddened by the responses that the students in that particular class had made. I really don’t understand what has really happened to students nowadays. The responses these students made really makes me wonder, why did they even do all that? The responses that they made really showed how much they had encouraged and supported the fight even more and even treated it as that guy putting up a good show. I’m not trying to be judgmental or to ruin their image by saying all these, but these are just facts and what I observed from the video that was posted and went viral over online. It just hit me so much that I can’t just sit there and watch a good show, just like the rest, but I just had to do something. Even if this “something” may seem small, at least I have done my part.ย 
I thought, how different would have the whole situation been if the students in that particular class had not laughed, jeered or treated it as a good show, but instead, remained silent when the guy argued. The result would have been so different isn’t it? I really strongly feel that something has to be changed about the student culture. I really feel that the whole response of these students shouldn’t have ended up that way as what had happened. If each of us don’t take the effort or the extra step to change, everything, including the culture in school will remain the same and nothing will change. It still also comes back to things like following what the crowd is doing, speaking vulgarities, jeering and making fun of people… I see no purpose in doing all that. We are born with different traits not to make ourselves superior than the other, but to work as a team that makes a team having different traits and living out our lives for a good cause, that’s how life should have been.
Everything, including bad things like this, do happen for a reason. It happens not for us to make a joke out of it or just feel that the sch’s reputation is ruined, but rather it happens cuz it serves as a wake up call to all of us, especially the students, of how ugly it actually had been if everyone in that class were to jeer over such incident, or even showed signs of supporting that guy to continue getting out of control as though it was fun to see how a person goes crazy. Let’s not let the idealism die within us cuz of how the atmosphere in sch is, or even how the sch culture gets. Let’s always stand strong and defend our idealism that all these are wrong and should not been done at all. I just felt a need to also pray for TP, and also the other institutions as well, pray to have more and more idealistic people in the school.
