why chc? =)

By Walking With YOU · May 14, 2012 · 0 Comments ·

Many people ask me why am i in CHC..

why CHC when there are so many other churches around that is free from criticisms..

haha..i used to ask this question to my friends who were in this church before i got integrated myself.

I have never understood why are people all swarming to CHC...it's just a church that is big..

people who goes there just seems to be people who are rich..and this church doesnt seem to have a very good reputation..

 

Honestly, before i got integrated myself, i have never had a good impression of it..

I remember telling myself that I will never ever go to CHC if i ever want to look for a church..

BUT..haaha God does have a sense of humour..

I've been in this church for the past 5 years..it's my first church..and im sure it's going to be my church for the rest of my life..

 

Indeed, this church is a big church..

Have you ever wondered why people will want to stay on? Is it really because it is big and rich and hip??

I 've always wondered about this..

And im thankful that I experienced it myself and understand fully why people would want to stay on..and im thankful to God for letting me be a part of this family..impacting lives and changing nations in Asia and all over the world.

 

First and most importantly, I love this church for the presence of GOd! The anointed praise and worship and preaching of the word. Every week, I get to soak in the presence of God. Well, what's the presence of God you may ask..well, i would say it's this special feeling that you get when you just step into the hall..something that you cant even describe..it just makes you feel light and happy..the feeling that you know, "everything is gonna be alright!" This feeling was something i couldnt find outside, no matter how happy i was. This was the main thing that attracted me when i first stepped into CHC which was at expo then in 2007. It was the presence of God..

 

Secondly, i love this church for the spiritual family..for the leaders and friends i can turn to when im in need..people whom i know will encourage and lift me up when im down and will believe and pray together with me..they are people who believes in me and wants me to achieve the best in life. They speak words of encouragements into my life. They build me up in character and in leadership. They are the ones whom im not afraid to show who i really am to. We hug, we cry, we laugh and we do meaningful things together.. They are my spiritual family.

Thank God for wonderful leaders like Pastor Kong, Sun, Pastor Aries and many CGLS who have touched my lives..they are my role models and without all these people, there will not be CHC today! Just want to take this chance to thank all my leaders and disciplers..because without all of you, I will not be where i am today..

 

Thirdly, I love this church for how they love and care for the needy..reaching out to people who are in need. The amount of humanitarian work they do, the crossover project and how pastor kong stresses on loving people fervently despite all the critcisms..

Many people criticise or give the skeptical look whenever they hear about CHC.

But i just want to say, im so proud to be a part of this City Harvest family. Not because it is big or because it is hip..

But i love this church family for the foundation that it is built on..

It is here in this church, i found purpose in life..i found courage to pursue what i want in life..

It is here that i found strength to pick myself up when im at my lowest point in life..

It is here that I found my boyfriend and buddies..

It is here that i found my spiritual family and support..

It is here that i found GOD!

Indeed, this may not be a perfect church, BUT, it is definitely a wonderful FAMILY!

This is my church, this is my life!

5th December 2011 has officially been marked as one of the most traumatic day of my life..

even right now im still in shock..

a fire actually broke out at my house early this morning at 730am in the morning..

and guess what??at that moment i was still sound asleep until i heard my sister screaming for my aunt and i from the kitchen bathroom..

 

it turned out that she smell smoke and heart crackling sound while bathing halfway and when opened the toilet door to have a peep she saw fire..

she started screaming for us to awake us from our sleep..

this sounds like those fire incident compo hahaa..but this time it's real...=X

 

was at a lost when i jumped out of my bed and saw fire in the kitchen..

was wondering should i call the fire engine? splash the fire with water?hit it with a cloth or what??? (oh man the importance of a fire extinguisher..provided knw how to use)

hmm in the end we used damp towel to put out the fire..but thinking bad about it...it's still pretty dangerous to do that..should have used a towel to cover the fire instead..but well at the moment it's really difficult to keep calm and think properly..i was even wondering what is the number for the fire engine..

hmm and even now the whole house still smell of smoke..=(

haix it's a really traumatic experience..

imagine how serious things would have gotten if we were any slower..

To add on to this..something else happened at home..haix..Just hope eveyrthing will be okay..

 

im not sure how to express my feelings..i feel traumatised..at the same time thankful...feel tired but im feeling a little paranoid and worried to sleep..

Been running around the whole day clearing up the mess and out to buy lightings and etc...tired..

Whatever it is, I really thank God for protection..If not for His protection, i think i wouldnt be here typing this entry...

Just praying that everything will get better..especially when the electrician comes to rewire the whole house on thursday and for painting to start on friday..

Next week is gna be a week of spring cleaning..lots of things to do..thank God im on holiday..

 

But well, whatever it is..im glad that i made it through the day..

Now, i can only continue to pray for protection and grace over my family and house and that things will get better..

It will because enough is enough!!! No weapons formed against us shall prosper for if God is for us, nothing can be against us!

My God will protect my household and i..ALL will be well...

 

on a more positive note..this can actually be seen as a blessing in disguise..

a chance to revamp the whole house and early spring cleaning for us all and in time for CNY next year! =)

 

My family and i will definitely end off this year well..and start off 2012 with a good start! =)

 

May the Lord bless and protect all my loved ones!

and may we all be able to sleep well tonight..

God is still good! =)

holidayssss

By Walking With YOU · November 27, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

Holiday has started for about 2 weeks already..

I think it's pretty ironic that whenever im not having holidays i have lotsa things in mind that i wanna do but now that it's the holiday, i just feel like staying at home and do nothing..one thing because of money..the other thing cause im just feeling lazy haha!

i do wish that i can go overseas this holiday..but im not=( booooooo...

anyway, went to har par villa with nie girls..the last time i went was many years ago when i was still a kid..looking back i rmb nothing except for the tiger.haha..well actually nth much in there..can easily finish walking the whole place in 1 hour..

well anyway after that we went to holland V for xiao long bao & steamboat buffet..With the circle line in place, getting there is definitely so much easier..

Anyway the buffet was good! but was really filling..I was so full to the extent that i felt like vomiting! AHHA! but well it was really good..good food and good company with the girls. Also went JB with this group of girls the following day! FINALLY! been looking forward to go JB with them and yeahhhh!! =)

It was pretty fun except the legs were nearly broken from all the walking and standing..

oh ya! and my eldest cousin..lao da just got married! YEAHHH!! so happy for them..=)

ahhh talking about this...i realise we are all growing up..all getting married one by one..hahaa..

Im actually looking forward to my own! HAHAHAH! =P but well..still some time..ahhaha! anyway, it's good to dream & visualise..=)

 

okay that's about all..im just feeling bored haha!
