Away for 2 weeks.....

~ LoLa
hi guys!
Surprised that not many have left their prints on the blog since i left! Was expecting to come back to a super busy blog....what happened? :)

Anyway, Candee Mummy, I'm so encouraged to read your previous blog. Yeah, i still remember the times where you were going through a rough patch and how some r/s were being threatened. As i look back, indeed I have seen how God has saved you, not just giving you salvation, but also how He has changed your life in so many ways. You have never ceased to be an encouragement to me: your enthusiasm, openness and passion to learn more about Him. God honours such a heart.. :)

You know, when i was away for the 2 weeks, I have a very honest confession to make...we were so busy planning where to go, what to do, that I really had no time to really spend time alone with's ironic that when we go for a holiday, we as singaporeans just want to squeeze as much as possible to see within the given time! And sadly, we end up tired and need a holiday back home to recover!!ha!

Anyway, yea...i really felt the 2 weeks away was also a time where I kinda drifted a cell, no service, no TAWG.....and then i EASY it is to just slip away just backslide...

As i am thinking aloud, the word 'accountability' really rings out loud ....often we don't realise, but coming to cell and coming for service regularly does a lot more than just making the cell look good or making the cell leader happy!!! haa :) it keeps all of us accountable in our walk....Hearing how God has been real in each other's lives as we come together to share, as we pray we set aside time to worship God as a corporate body, as we hear the Holy Spirit speaking straight to our hearts through a sermon....all these are more than just actions and duties, they are really intentional moments we spend with God's people, in God's presence....and I really want to encourage all of us...let's not give ourselves reasons to disappear from God's people....even visiting this Blog, reading about God, listening worship songs about God, blogging about God...just these few minutes here have uplifted my spirit.....thanks guys for making this blog a place of rest for me...a refuge from the busy world that we live in....

i was listening to the beautiful ministering music on the blog. As i heard the song ' You are my all in all' (Track 6), it just brought me back to my Christian walk many years ago....don't know how to express, but sometimes, there are certain songs that just have a place in your heart and represent a particular period of your life....not sure if you guys have that :)

This song has always been one of my old time favourites....and thought i'd share the lyrics's a beautiful song that I would never want to forget...a song that speaks of our smallness in the midst of a great almighty God!

You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all
Seeking You as a precious jewel
Lord to give up I’d be a fool
You are my all in all

Jesus Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name
Jesus Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name

Taking my sin, my cross, my shame
Rising again I bless Your name
You are my all in all
When I fall down You pick me up
When I am dry You fill my cup
You are my all in all

Today,my niece asked me why she needs to go church every weekend, why her friends do not need to go church?

All these WHY and WHY!!!

Parenting is NOT easy job... Thanks God that she is teachable and need to guide her along. Need some patience and time to explain to her that sometimes she can make decision and there are times she MUST listen to adult who can make the BEST choice for her....

God please give me wisdom..
