Like Little Toddlers

Sigh... Guess home is not the best place to worship. You know, its just like the workplace, so much distractions everywhere. Yeah, even my bed room is too distracting. There's that messy table that I tell myself to clear each time, only to somehow not have the willpower to clear it up in the end. Then there's that bed that lures me to want to sleep, instead of focus on praying.

Then in the office, well, I feel like a little toddler, always wanting to snatch 'things' away from other people. Sigh, guess my dad is right. I'm on the wrong ball man. I should be doing other things that are more worthwhile... Things like praying and seeking. sigh

Heard this from Pastor Yap today:

The Toddler's Rules of Possession
1. If I like it, it’s mine.
2. If it’s in my hand, it’s mine.
3. If I can take it from you, it’s mine.
4. If I had it a little while ago, it’s mine.
5. If it’s mine, it must NEVER appear to be yours in anyway.
6. If I’m doing or building something, all the pieces are mine.
7. If it looks just like mine, it is mine.
8. If I saw it first, it’s mine.
9. If you are playing with something and you put it down, it automatically becomes mine.
10. If it’s broken, it’s yours.

Heh its pretty lame, but isn't it true of us these days?Sigh

Oh well, gotta go now. Face my problems again..

14We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. 15I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 16And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. 17As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. 18I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. 19For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. 20Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
21So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22For in my inner being I delight in God's law; 23but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. 24What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? 25Thanks be to God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God's law, but in the sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.

~Romans 7:14-25

Silver and a day off

Yeah... Couldn't believe it myself, but I got my silver for ippt today.

Seriously, never expected myself to jump 221cm on the first try. I was like.. WOAH!!! Cuz I still remember last time in bmt and sispec, i jump like only 200cm one. Really sian one..

Oh well, I got my silver, and my one day off. yippee..


God is good all the time
He put a song of praise
In this heart of mine
God is good all the time
Through the darkest night
His light will shine
God is good
God is good all the time

If you're walking through the valley
There are shadows all around
Do no fear He will guide you
He will keep you safe and sound
He has promised to never leave you
Nor forsake you
And His Word is true


We were sinners so unworthy
Still for us He chose to die
He filled us with His Holy Spirit
Now we can stand and testify
That His love is everlasting
And His mercies they will never end


Though I may not understand
All the plans You have for me
My life is in Your hands
And through the eyes of faith
I can clearly see



P.S: Today's Earth Day. So Happy Earth Day. LOL

Song of the Moment

Verse 1
As we worship You,
let all the world come and see
How the mercy we received from You
can set them free
As we worship You, let all this joy that fills our hearts
Bring a hunger and a hope
to those who strayed so far

As we bow in adoration and stand in reverent awe
Show Your majesty and glory, let Your anointing fall
As we declare Your name Lord Jesus
as the only name who saves
May the power of Your salvation
fill each heart we pray

Verse 2
As we worship You,
let all the nations hear our song
Song of Jesus and His blood that proved His love for all
As we worship You, may all the lost and broken come
May they hear Your still small voice
call out their names each one

As we bow in adoration and stand in reverent awe
Show Your majesty and glory, let Your anointing fall
As we declare Your name Lord Jesus
as the only name who saves
May the power of Your salvation
fill each heart we pray

As we worship You, as we worship You
As we worship You, as we worship You
As we worship You

OCT liao loh

No lah, not oct in army lah... OCT in 12th coy...

Yeah went for OCO today. Met up with Zheng Yang, who was also attending the course.

Oh well, the course was pretty useful lah, cuz it gave us the right perspective on being an officer in 12th coy. Gotta have that shift in thinking, cuz we're no longer Boys liao. haha

The unfortunate thing was that the course was on the same day as enrollment!! Sian lor.. Oh well, Mr Ng helped me pull string by negotiating with them to allow me to leave after the last lesson before the test, which was at 4.30pm. haha but the lecturer went on and on and we ended at like 5pm instead. kee yikes... So yeah, once it ended, me and zheng yang just made a bee-line to zion road and hopped into a cab. Hopefully, I wouldn't miss singing the coy theme song. haha guess that's the most meaningful part of the enrollment.

lol so when I stepped into the sanctuary in my OCT uniform, I was just in time for the dedication of officers. amazing huh? fresh out of oco, and then immediately dedicated as an oct. lol

At the end of it, the y5s, jonas, kiwi, khoo and i went to have dinner at island creamery in serene centre. but well, the journey there was a hassle in itself. all the buses that could take us there were always full and crowded. yeah no choice but to go in waves..

ok so in all, think there were about 20 of us hungry young men and ladies who chalked up half of the outlet, feasting on 2 whole mudpies and 6 tubs of ice cream. haha the lady behind the counter was pretty pissed at us for being so budget by ordering mudpies by the whole thing, rather than by slices.

gotta admit, the ice cream was pretty nice. nutella, horlicks and teh tarik was shiok. koped some bandung ice cream as well. now that was good too.haha... diabetes in every bite.

at the end, we came up with this crazy idea of giving every year 2 an island creamery tub before the primers rod next year. rofl imagine the amount of ice cream they're gonna have to gobble down man. wah haha..

anywayz, went back home with felicia and zhuo'er on 156.. didn't know zhuo'er stayed so close to us.

wow wat a great day!!

Can things get any worse?

lol just realised i haven't updated for close to 1.5 months. Sheesh brunei was about a month ago. Fun times man...

you know, i gotta admit i've strayed quite far. Been really prayer-less these few months. Just did something that I wasn't really proud of last sunday. Wonder how i could have deteoriated to this kind of condition.

guess its now a wake-up call for me to stop living on my own strength (and stop bluffing myself that i haven't been doing that). sigh...

gosh wat a bad eg i am..


7 Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
