The Glory of God

Ever wonder why so often we failed to cut off from bad habits?

Ever wonder why we always repent for our sins and yet after a few days, we stumble again?

Ever wonder why you do all you can to prevent from stumbling, yet you stumble again?

asking forgiveness upon forgiveness, grace upon grace until to the point that we do not even know how to face God anymore because we wonder whether God will still ever forgive this non-stop of bad habits or sins? Have you discovered that, in the past, you may have desired freedom for the wrong reasons? What were those reasons?

This is because our motives of being set free is wrong in the first place! Please take time to think. Are we trying to be free from all these bondages so that we can feel better about ourselves? so that we can be more 'holy'? so that we can be the 'leader' that God wants us to be? so that our future life and marriage will be bless by God(for sexual sins)?

All these motives are self-centered. When we all do things that are self-centered, it means that we are not involving God in this matter. That is why, we often depend on our own strength to be free from bondages. We need our motives to be CHRIST-centered! Setting motives right is the first step to gain freedom! So, what is the Christ-centered motive?

1 Cor 10:31 says Therefore whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do ALL to the glory of God.

It says here very clearly. We need to do it for the glory of God! Our motive has to be: we want to be free from all these bondages, so that our God can be glorified! Not glorifying one-self (such as to feel good about ourselves, to be mroe 'holy' etc etc).

To be free, we need to change ourselves and convince ourselves that we want to cut all these bad habits and sins because we want to glorify God and stop hurting God, not because we want HIS blessings! (obviously when God is please with you, HIS blessings flow unto you but this should not be the reason you want to cut off from habitual sins)

now why we need to glorify God with our body by stop sinning?

1 Cor 6:19 - 20 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

It is simple here. We need to honour and glorify God with our body. How? simply by cutting off from our habitual sins.

Therefore we really need to set our motive right to be free from habitual sins! Glorifying God should be our main motive!

Just my thought to share, hope this helps! Take care and God bless (:


It may seem like 'lala', but the friendship is real, love on the solid rock of Christ! (:

First Year - DONE!

Yes, I've finished my year! Praise God! And guess what? It ended with a blast! SEGi REVOLUTION PARTY 2010!

It's been loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong since I last updated about myself! Been busy (not so, and yes) all these while. Let me bring you my first year's half highlights!

January February and March
SCHOOL time as usual. Busy and Yes Feb 16th, is the one day I'll never forget!

I went for Victory Weekend, conducted by Eaglepoint church! There, I truly experience God's grace. I think everyone should go Victory weekend, and let Jesus do the healing and set us free from sins and bondage.

May and June
It was my exam period. But Praise God for HIS favour and grace, my results were out now, I got 3A and 1B for my first year Pharmacy! (:

It was REVOLUTION party. Though we started promotion late, but thank God, HE filled the Auditorium with more than 270+ people, 61 people responded to the message, 17 confirmed salvation! PRAISE GOD! It must have been God that is being so REAL in that event!

All in all, thank God for HIS astronomical grace! HE is always faithful even though sometimes I felt dry inside, and HE always fill my cup when I'm empty again! I love you JESUS. Thank YOU for using me, as an instrument of YOURS and become a blessings for others!

I've also get to know Subang CF people through REVO planning. The likes of Melissa, Fee Vien, Jevin and Ailynn and many more, they are so committed and come for meeting and practice everytime! Great people to be with!

Now, I'm back in Penang, I'm gonna use this one month and a half to refresh myself again and go back on my pharmacy track again this Sept. As the saying goes, there's a season for everything, and I'm on holiday season! But still, that doesnt mean I will stop SERVING HIM. I will do what HE says. I will choose only to PLEASE HIM.

That's all for now! I'll revive my blog from this post onwards!

Greetings from Penang!

Facing the Mountains

Lots of things happened recently. But God is GOOD, HIS mercy renews every morning and HIS GRACE is always sufficient for me. That is why I'm still alive here (:

100MCQ was okay, but I'm aiming high this time. I name it, claim it and gonna take it! But still I'm humble enough to prepare the marks that I'll get. Still give thanks anyway!

Next would be, this Sat, Campus VIBE will have an outing to Lake View Garden in KL. I heard it's one of the best gardens in KL. Forest in the city? haha Anyone interested can let me know!

Gonna go off now, Nights!! Cheers!

New Year!

Readers, please bare with me. I wont shut this blog up. But there will be less post already. Been busy nowadays. Exams are coming up.

I pray that 2010 will be a God's favour-upon-you Year!

Blessed 2010 guys!


So sorry readers cause I haven't been updating my blog for days. It seems though as if it's dead. Well, I'm actually considering to shut this blog already because what Melvin says is true. Sometimes our blog is just merely reporting back what had happened recently.

But all these while, I wanted my blog to be more than that. I want it to be a book of testimonies where people can be encouraged and also trying to keep this blog as informative as possible.

So I really want to listen from you readers! Tell me, how this blog has been to you thus far?

Useful? Informative? Encouraging? Boring? A blessing?

Please feel free to voice out! =)

Btw, some updates, I just got back from Pg, had a great time with IGNITE-Youth! 3 more weeks to winter break!


Yesterday, me, Samuel and Fugi decided to go to Tesco, the Curve and IKEA to grab what we needed to grab. So 3 bachelors going for grocery shopping, can you imagine that? Haha. After that we cooked ourselves dinner. Played futsal under the rain until 12midnight and had a good swim till 2. By the way, I got myself a new Christmas tumbler! I want the penguin eh but sadly, it's sold out. So this is the rabbit one! LOL. And Toffee nut latte is so niceeeeeeee! =)


Trying out some angle for my photos. Still learning and discovering!

Today, I had dance practice so went to church early. And we watched Indescribable in the service! A very good reminder! Thank God for HIS astronomical GRACE!

2 more weeks to church's 3rd Anniversary! =)

Thank You
