surrounded by giants

AHHHH surrounded by the giant of computer incompetence. i deleted my previous post just by going to another site. neh mind. wait i try to remember. ok, ahem, here goes.

there are good giants and bad giants. (wa.. powderful right.)

christian life is not a war between grasshoppers and giants. it's a war between grasshopper-mentalities, good giants and bad toothless lions.

haha.. explained by title. so u guys out there there there wun think, oh no, emo valley-post. haha.

on the flipside, today is GREAT! (though the non-great parts is cos of people not being there to share it for one reason or another. Budden I know Lajang sure v fun understudying today!) =) how to explain. tsk! must create a language with expressions de. oh yah, that's emoticons. okok.

Ya~~ during SOT, when Pst Derek told us to turn to our neighbor and practice flowing with the Spirit by speaking a Word or just to pray and minister over the person (minister the person? minister on the person?), it was SO COOL! I seriously was so psyched that really - i dunno if it's REALLY the first time but like JX said, this one is definite) - Holy Spirit used me to speak over Jean! Lol.. the funny thing is that afterwards we can turn to each other and ask "eh, zun bo?" lol.. everyone so scared sa la. But I was vvvveehhhh encouraged that Jean said: "Eh! How you know?" ... Man... those are the best words to hear can.

Ya. I really thought my excitement over that could not be beat... as in, so soon la. Then - CGM! Can i say, i was really v touched when JX asked us to write down an experience with God that we know that we know that we know is REAL. And when I finished my um, one sentence, (cos I scared have to share) & look at others finish their, ahem, essay, I was v touched that beyond what we know of each other, there is so much more that God knows and is secretly touching & changing. THAT'S PRETTY COOL!

Yeah.. it's great. You know, before we entered SOT (acherly this wk is the 1st wk for many of us Uni students to start going), knowing that 7 ppl from W345 would be going was exciting & comforting, and yet there was pressure as well. On one hand, you know where you are or aren't in your spiritual walk. On the other, you know the expectancy of your leaders and pastors. It's like, oh dear, i really hope that thru this we can help W345 in the sense tt we bring in greater spiritual knowledge to everyone, budden WHAT IF i go in le, still never change. Oh no! They'll find out i'm a FAKE-O! ><''''''

So really, to be able to come for cgm and see a change in the atmosphere because we know that thru our prayers and our leaders' prayers, that during the week God is working in our individual lives (if you are feeling dry, it only means tt God is working twice as hard!), man AWESOME. Really I wanna do that - be equipped, then sit back and watch God take over. I was totally bowled over from the start of Jingxuan's message, from the title to ministry. WAAAAAA... everything click click click. tell you one thing man, God knows what He's doing. ;D

Ya. know what, I'm gonna end here. half cos tired le, half cos, if u wanna know what happeneded, ASK! ;D cheers!

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…

on mountains and perspective

Kept awake by a bout of traveler's diarrhea and the ensuing abdominal colic. Just been back from an attempt at Mount Kinabalu, 'highest mountain in Southeast Asia'. Okay, those apostrophes are there out of bitterness... it really is the highest mountain in Southeast Asia. And I couldn't even attempt the summit. Made it to the base camp at 3067 m though... that's what it says on my black-and-white certificate - colored ones are only for successful summit-ers.  Crrr!

But I made it back with my life. And I'm humbler for the attempt, though how could I resist the parting shot: "I'll be back!"?

But on a more serious note, it's an awesome thing, a beautiful gift to be able to get out there into as natural a surrounding you can get (without dying a slow tv-less death from cold, altitude sickness, projectile vomit and did I mention cold?). It truly seems like one never can be happy - despite all my first-world comforts, I'd gladly pay to painfully…

hello from the other side

hello to the old me (6 years, yikes!)

hello from someone who's discovered that old is just another word for diminishing physical capacity, but increasing everything-else capacity!

The old me would have said, I should have posted more regularly and I shall post more often now... but I'm glad in hindsight that I held to my belief that I should only post when I've something positive to contribute. Not just words, but how they are birthed. Words written without vanity. And words written not to solicit approval in replacement of the lack of it elsewhere. Words that aren't hurried through the time needed to process and ruminate over the experiences of the past few years (dramatic in some aspects, mundane in most so all in all pretty much as per everyone else's I would expect!).

Still, a little mortifying to realise that I don't know how to work the buttons (!) and to realise I'd forgotten so many things, and yet in some respects, am still entirely the same.

And O…
