Find the treasures in the darkness.

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

I will give you the treasures of darkness, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.

Isaiah 45:3

What we perceive as dark periods in our lives are designed to be treasures from God. They are actually riches stored in secret places. We cannot see those treasures because of the often-accompanying pain or fear that prevents us from accepting them. God has a purpose for difficult times. "... so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name."

Unless we are cast into times in which we are completely at God's mercy for breakthroughs in our lives, we will never experience God's faithfulness in those areas. We will never know how personal He is, or that He can be trusted to meet the deepest needs in our lives. God wants each one of us to know that we are "summoned by name". His love for you and me knows no bounds, and He will take every opportunity to demonstrate this to us.

Has God brought you into a place of darkness? Trust Him today to reveal that hidden treasures that can be found in this darkness. Let Him summon you by name.

Today's prayer meeting, i just felt so blessed. I felt the Lord's presence surrounding me. It was all so sincere. Hearts just cried out to Him. I'm thankful. Thankful that i have found the treasures within the darkness. Thankful that God has carried me through it all. Thankful, for everything God has bless me with. I cannot thank Him enough for He has done just so much for me. All Glory to God! His love is the same and will never change, today, now and forevermore.


A review of the week..

Monday, March 23, 2009

here's something to update.

thanks everyone, for all your concern. hopefully things are better. am leaving it all fully to God. i know He is always there beside me. God didn't promise us a smooth life, but He put obstacles to allow us to grow in deeper faith in Him. Like what Pastor Kevin Loo said, once ppl start getting comfortable, that's the time when their faith start to weaken because there were no problems. so, in a way, problems in life gets ppl going. anyways, i'm ok now. Mum, Soon Ying, thank you, don't worry, i will stay strong. love you all n miss u all so so much.

for last week, celebrated 3 birthdays. Charmaine, Bryan n Yow.
Charmaine n Bryan's bday was awesome with so many surprises planned out. hope u all really enjoyed your special day n 1st birthday in Moscow. hehe. and of course, both kena creamed n vodka. haha. and kena bullied with 3 games. and not to forget, the makan lunch at Hard Rock Cafe, was an experience. but guess it must have been their best birthday.

coming week, means this week, i have 2 colloqs - Anatomy Respiratory System and Biology Phylum Arthropoda. and to add on, articles for a magazine. whoa.. gonna be a super busy week. hope i can have time for everything. it's really training my time management.

oh ya, last friday, when i was travelling to physics lecture with Jasper n Gan, at a metro station where we change from one line to another, an old lady fell into the track. we were standing about 6 meters away when we suddenly heard a loud sound like as if something fell. then we saw the old lady in the track. 2 russian guys immediately got in to pull her out. thank goodness the previous metro just left n the next metro was not too near yet. the next metro came in approx 10 seconds later. phew. thank goodness. or not it will be the third case of ppl being rammed by the metro in the year. Malaysian students hav witnessed 2 so far. n i surely wouldn't wanna witness one myself. thank God. thank God for protection.

okies. guess that's all for now. will update more soon. hopefully. hehehe.
take care everyone. missing u all back in Malaysia so much.

love from moscow,


A heavy heart..

Friday, March 20, 2009

a heavy heart, no one can ever understand how i feel right now. i don't know what else i can do. i don't know how long i will have this ringing in my mind, affecting my thoughts which affects my mood and indirectly affects people around me. why does it have to be like this? i don't want it at all. i wanna be free of this heavy heart. i feel really alone, like no one can ever understand why. i wish i can just cut away this heavy heart n replace it with a light, care-free one. i really hate myself now. i dunno what else i can do. i dunno what else i should do. it really feels like my whole world is crashing on me now. what am i suppose to do? this is one thing everyone around me has failed to realize and understand, it's not that i'm angry or anything, there's something that's making my heart so heavy. too heavy for me to carry till it kinda affects me. though sometimes i may seem ok, but on the inside i am actually not. don't ask me why because i myself also don't know why. i am reli sorry everyone.


Purposes + Liposome = Purposome

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

today at class, thanks to my didi, Brandon, a new word was created.

it is 'purposome'.

let me tell u how it came about.
at physics class today when i was doing my physics questions, Brandon was sitting beside me as usual. i was doing the questions and when i was writing the word 'purposes', Brandon suddenly ask me what is liposome. so i gladly answered him, "Liposome is on page 21" coz i was so happened on that page also but in the end, i ended up writing 'purposome' instead of 'purposes'. i looked at Brandon, and told him what happened and he burst out in laughter, declaring he would finally update his blog after so long n write about this newly created word 'purposome'. i wonder whether he really did. haha. anyways, i really had a good laugh over it. haha.

Purposes + Liposome = Purposome

Still searching..

Monday, March 9, 2009

A heart still searching.. searching to know the plans and purpose in my life.
Sometimes, i really ask why. I really ask, is this what God wants me to do? is this how it's suppose to be? i really don't have the answers for it now. it's really not easy sometimes. i feel i've neglected a lot of things, which i know i shouldn't. but somehow, the situation just doesn't allow me to do so. i really need the strength sometimes.

Dear Lord, please show me what You want me to do, i need Your direction in my life.. I will keep in step with You, every path I take, i will follow where You lead me, for I know it is the best for me.

Thank you Lord..

One Life, Make It Count!!

Saturday, March 7, 2009

it was all worth it..

on 1st of March 2009, about 600 people gathered at Holiday Inn Sokolniki, Moscow for an awesome One Life Event. we had different performances by different groups and even lucky draw where there were 2 iPod Shuffles n a Moscow-Asia flight ticket sponsored by Emirates to be won. check out the website, for more info.

it was all worth it. the endless, tiring hard work was all worth it when so many lives were touched that day. though it was really loads of hard work doing the planning and stuff, it was really all worth it. now that the event is over and the reports have been done, i feel a sense of relief. but then, One Life is not over! our One Life is still on, and we must indeed live this One Life according to what God has for us.

anyways, here are some photos we took during the event. we, the organizing committee were all dressed in formal wear. haha. we all look like smart looking business people. lol..

Saac, Valynne, me, Vashni
