Be thankful

Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary
Because it means you’ve made a difference.

It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are
also thankful for the setbacks.

GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessings.

Selama kuhidup...

"Tak terbatas kuasaMu Tuhan...Semua dapat Kau lakukan...Apa yang kelihatan mustahil bagiku, itu sangat mungkin bagiMu..." Mungkin ramai yang pernah mendengar lagu tersebut. Saya percaya, ramai di antara kita mengalami pergumulan, permasalahan peribadi. Sering kali kita mengandarkan kekuatan diri kita untuk meneruskan kehidupan kita sehingga ada kalanya apabila kita mengalami suatu permasalahan dan pergumulan yang besar kita akan merasa sangat kecewa kerana kita berasa diri kita sungguh lemah dan tidak berdaya.

Seringkali juga kita menyatakan bahawa diri kita percaya kepada Tuhan, namun apabila mengalami sedikit ujian, dengan mudahnya kita akan mempersoalkan di mana Dia dan mengapa Dia tidak membantu kita. Tetapi adakah kita sedar bahawa kita terlalu ego dan terlalu mengandarkan kekuatan diri kita sendiri sehingga kita lupa bahawa kuasa Bapa melebihi segalanya. Mungkin sudah tiba masanya untuk kita belajar merendah diri...Belajar untuk mengandarkan Tuhan. Kerana saya percaya bahawa Tuhan itu sentiasa tahu apa yang terbaik untuk kita.

Bagi yang rapat dengan saya, mungkin ramai yang sering bertanya kenapa saya selalu tenang walaupun saya ada banyak masalah. Mungkin ramai yang mengatakan bahawa saya tidak punya perasaan. Siapa ya di dunia ni yang tidak punya perasaan. Untuk pengetahuan kalian, saya juga manusia biasa yang punya perasaan. Cuma di saat saya berhadapan dengan segala permasalahan mahupun pergumulan dalam hidup saya, saya punya satu pegangan. Pegangan yang sentiasa saya sematkan dalam hati dan fikiran saya :) bahawa Tuhan itu sentiasa campur tangan dalam kehidupan saya dan dia tahu apa yang terbaik untuk diri saya. Sebab itu saya tidak pernah berasa risau kerana saya tahu Tuhan sentiasa menyertai saya. Yang pasti saya percayakan campurtangan Tuhan dalam hidup saya. Ya saudara, Kuasa Tuhan itu melebihi segalanya, jadi apa yang perlu kita risaukan selagi kita mempercayaiNya.

Ternyata di saat kita menyerahkan diri, merendahkan diri dan belajar untuk mengandarkan Tuhan, kita akan dapat merasakan betapa besarnya kasih Tuhan itu. Apa yang mustahil bagi kita semuanya mungkin bagi Tuhan. Tiada satupun yang mustahil bagi Tuhan. Percayalah dan belajarlah untuk merendahkan diri dan bersandar pada Tuhan kerana jika kita bersandar pada diri kita sendiri terlalu mudah untuk kita jatuh... Selama kita percaya dan beriman kepada Tuhan, tidak mudah untuk kita jatuh kerana Tuhan yang sentiasa memegang tangan kita, Amen!

Dan, sesungguhnya seperti hari2 sebelum ini, :) saya katakan Tuhan itu sentiasa campur tangan dalam hidup saya, dan hari ini Tuhan dengan kasihNya tetap setia bersama2 dengan saya. Terima kasih Bapaku, Engkau yang sentiasa tahu akan keperluan anakMu. Syukur dan Puji Tuhan!

Mat 11:28- "28Marilah kepada-Ku, semua yang letih lesu dan berbeban berat, Aku akan memberi kelegaan kepadamu."

Do we have to destroy our friendship...

I am totally speechless... I just don't know what else to say... Why do we have to be like this? I really like you. I do. You're so nice, and sweet, and you listen to all my problems and respond with the appropriate compliments. But, well, I don't really see a relationship in our future...I guess you understand what I mean. We talked about it before, a short conversation but I know both of us understand that. I knew you always understand, you always do. :)

We're so perfect as friends, you know? I can tell you anything, and you know you can always come to me anytime you need to hear me bitch about work or how ugly I feel. You wouldn't want to ruin a friendship like that just so you could be my boyfriend, and have me look at you with desire and longing in my eyes, if only once—would you? Of course not. Well, if we started dating, it would only complicate this wonderful setup I've got going here.

You are my best friend. And we both know that... We can't be more than that. It's hurt. But, It's just…you're like my best friend, and I would hate for something you desperately want to change that. You said I will not understand...No. We maybe not destine to be lover. We are just destined to be a good friend. Best friend...Who always there for each others, or hang out when both of us need someone to talk to. That's all.

:) ok enough. Don't worry and really sorry for everything I said just now. You are nice, funny and amazing. I'm sure there must be some one out there for you. Some one that really match for you. You will find someone, and I know it. And when you do, I'll be right by your side to suddenly become all flirty and affectionate with you in front of her, until she grows jealous and won't believe it when you say we're just friends. But when she dumps you, that's just what we'll be... I always love you like I did before :) so don't worry coz you're always my best and special friend. Remember that...

Why is life so complicated...

Have you ever think "Why is life so complicated?" Some one asked me this question before. And honestly that time I don't have an answer for that question. After a while, I let my self think about this question. Keep myself thinking, what is the best answer for the question. Well, I guess different people will give different answer.

While I'm surfing just now, I found this question posted by someone I don't know. It's related to some questions that most people keep asking to them self I guess. Maybe you also ever think about this question.

"Why is life so complicated, Why does everything need to be so messy like why cant life be simple, Why do people need to like do what they want even if it would hurt someone, Why do people say things they don't really mean but still say them or if they do mean them, Why do they need to say it. Is life only about money and sex. Why do people need to change all the time and what if someone liked someone better the way they were before and they changed completely but change in a bad way what do you do. If you know someone is getting away from you and your loosing contact with that person then what. What if someone you like does not notice you. what you do if when you look back you don't know where your at no more. You don't know the last time you had a good time with your family and friends with no fights."

I know most of us hope that our life can be more simple and easier than what we face right now. For me it's all about yourself. Life is complicated, that's we call it LIFE. If life always easy and simple, what do you expect you can learn from this life? My little sis also asked me this question long time ago. She asked me why we have to be struggle to get what we want? Why life keep complicated as we grow up? Why we have to think about so many things?

Well babe... Actually, I just can give you my simple opinion. For me, if life were simple, there is nothing we can learn and we can't improve our self to be a better person. Do you think you can learn something if you never get through the real life? As we have to face the hardest way, we maybe did not realize that we learn a lot of things from that. It's hurt but believe me, this pain is one of powerful lesson that teach you to be more strong. So, why are we so scared when life is getting complicated? Believe me, if life is simple there's no fun. ^.^v

Forget bout the person that you like but never notice you. Forget about your tears, forget about people who keep thinking that you never exist or whatever that bother you. All you have to do now is learn...Learn from this complicated situation because you will find a happiness if you can get through all of this. Remember, if life is simple, there's no fun and I bet you, your life is useless if you didn't learn something from your life. :D~ So, stop complaining and stop asking "Why is life so complicated"!!!

Did someone took a portion of your heart?
Now I'm learning you

And if you don't mind
Can you tell me
All your hopes and fears
And Everything that you believe in
Would you make a difference in the world
I'd love for you to take me to a deeper conversation
Only you can make me

I let my guard down for you
And in time you will too

If you don't mind
Can you tell me
All your hopes and fears
And Everything that you believe in

Maybe all you need is love and a lil bit of patience...

There is something special about this video. Not even dog I guess, we our self as a person need love and a little patience to make our self feel save. Lets learn from this situation. Sometimes we maybe don't understand why certain people act just like they don't have any feelings and ignore others people out there. But exactly, it's all about trust, a little faith and love and perhaps a little bit of patience to make them realize that there are others person who really care of them!!!

Place where I belong

My sister sms me and said they go back to dad's village. I think almost 3 years I didn't go back there. It's been a long time and yes I admit that I really miss that place and of course all my relatives there. My grandpa Joe...Grandpa cousins... And am sure they will ask about me every time my parents go back there. Hopefully this year I can go back to Sg Asap :P (Quite jealous of my bro n sis coz they can go back) And yes, this video was taken during our Hari Keluarga 2008. So, let me share pictures of my village here :P

Satu Hal Yang Ku Rindu

Hampir 4 bulan sudah saya di sini. Rindu sangat mau balik hometown dan melayani. I mean, memang saya melayani di sini tapi pelayanan saya di sini tidak tetap sebab saya sibuk praktikal yang kadang2 terpaksa membuatkan saya sukar terlibat dengan aktiviti yang dijalankan. Tapi syukur, Puji Tuhan sebab saya masih juga boleh melayani di tempat ini. Cuma rasanya untuk semester ini, saya agak kurang terlibat dengan pelayanan, rasanya sem ini saya cuma aktif melayani untuk bulan Januari sahaja. Untuk bulan Februari, pelayanan saya makin kurang sebab jadual yang sibuk. Tapi syukur, sebab Koko Andrew n Melda faham. Sorry guys :) kadang2 nda dapat juga tolong kamu. Kalau balik bercuti, dapat juga saya melayani full time di hometown...(Saya rindu sangat masa2 melayani bersama2 rakan2 saya di hometown) Anyway, thanks God sebab saya masih dapat melayani sehingga ke hari ini ^.^v

Bad Day?

Is there a bad day? That one day when everything always looks messy. Everything feels out of control, all seemed strange, everything was not friendly. If you have ever experienced a day like that, you often think of it as a bad day, right?

The Psalmist was clearly mentioned that he has a bad day: "They confronted me in the day of my calamity Is the psalmist believe this kind of day? Maybe. In the cultural-religious thought in the era of the psalmist, there seems to be fateful day. However, if any such assumption, which is more important is the faith of the psalmist who said that God is more powerful than the calculation of the days of such fateful: "But God be back to me" (verse 19). So, he did not want to get caught and imprisoned in the prediction of the fateful day, bad day. God is the God who rules over every day and in every day. That is the faith of the psalmist.Faith does not stop on the fear cast by the calculation of the days. Faith is in God that transcends all day.

Today is the day that God made for you. Throw away the suggestion horoscopes, get rid of your fears immediately. Enter today with faith that God is the God of today, the ruling on this day.

Psalm 18:17-20 17 [He rescued me from my strong enemy and from those who hated me, for they were too mighty for me.They confronted me in the day of my calamity, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out into a broad place; he rescued me, because he delighted in me. The Lord dealt with me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands he rewarded me.]

Draw me close to You

There come times when I have nothing more to tell God. If I were to continue to pray in words, I would have to repeat what I have already said. At such times it is wonderful to say to God, "May I be in Thy presence, Lord? I have nothing more to say to Thee, but I do love to be in Thy presence." ~O. Hallesby
