Faith

=) This week's service was GREAT! Lol... I was so tired from - ironically enough - SLEEPover, & waking up early (early is an understatement; we have to create a word to describe 'obscenely early') to accompany Aileen for her hospi-ministry! When Pastor started his introduction, knowing it was one of the 4 F's to start the year, I was so prepared to write down 'fortitude' - you know, wow, something new! When Pastor said, 'Faith', I was like, 'oh oh,' cos I knew I might fall asleep! X''@

BUT really.. timely Word! ;) Especially when school is starting out, work is getting into motion, projects, assignments, looming (already!) mid-terms... I really need faith = CONFIDENCE, an assurance in God that He'll be with me, NOW! ;D

It was really a revelation to me that God wants us to be confident IN Him, and that this confidence is what can help us succeed our there in the marketplace! When I was struggling with my insecurities just last year, the idea was unpalatable to me! Somehow, even while knowing the truth, it's so easy to think humility equates to thinking lowly of oneself, being self-deprecating & others-centred. I used to view young people rising up in church with some envy, & with a little cyncism. In my heart, I would wonder if all that hype & popularity & glowing reports would blow them up; if that confidence I saw was due to SELF-confidence. Even now, I would think it a bit hard to differentiate. Though of course, it doesn't really matter. Everyone's in a process of growing. ;D

Yea, that's what i wanna say lor - stepping out isn't just psyching yourself to believing that God will, MUST show up if you sacrifice etc. - it's putting confidence in God FIRST even without proof of His taking any action, ESPECIALLY when it's hard to place confidence in YOURSELF, so that your actions will be out of conviction & purposeful, with no sign of giving into your fears. That's when you start changing the environment around you. It's not just X-factor, or charisma, or great leadership potential - it's choosing to just let God use u!

But yea~ I'm so glad for the Word! During ministry, it was just so awesome to see Pastor laying hands on the CG leaders cos I know that the anointing will flow down to us! XD Yay... thank God for breakthrough!

As Sy Rogers said today, there are things we can look back on, our memorial stones, that encourage us and give us strength to move forward. I rmb a time I was so far away and so tired of people in general, cos really it's relationships that really get me down - n when Jean would walk in on me crying or just sitting and not even having the energy to do stuff, she would listen n say 'just cry out to God alright?' and that would be the last thing i wanted to hear. sometimes you know what to do, and you know what the advice will be, but when the emotions are not there, an…

beauty and the beast

Best movie ever!

I admit, I was totally sceptical at what I thought was another attempt to spoil a good thing. But musicals... haven't regretted watching a single one, from Chicago, Burlesque, Les Miserables (though I only found out it was fully a musical midway)! We live and we learn :)

Ok, here's how good it was. I went back to watch it a second time. Hee.

It's definitely one of those movies to watch alone - so you can cry at all the odd moments. I gather from the odd chuckles and silences from my fellow movie-watchers, that we were all touched by the movie in one way or the other. None of us wanted to live till we saw the end of the credits. You have to leave immediately when the lights come on though, so you can go remove any traces of the tear tracks.

Loved Belle for being both feisty and just lovely. Emma Watson, you danced beautifully; I was half-in-love with you myself! And of course Beast and the eye-rolling, bumbling-ness of him.

The best of it all was the famili…
