another year..

thank God for yet another year that has passed.
a year of learning, a year of trusting,
a year of mercies, of God's faithfulness and grace,
a year of praise, a year of proving God's grace.
a year of service, of witness for God's love..
may the year ahead be one, for the Lord my great Saviour!
(adapted from "another year is dawning" by frances R.Havergal)

at this time of reflection, a song came to my mind, and it is my prayer that the Lord will use me to do my best for Him!

"I wonder, have I done my best for Jesus,
Who died upon the cruel tree?
To think of His great sacrifice at Calvary!
I know my Lord expects the best from me.
How many are the lost that i have lifted?
How many are the chained I've helped to free?
I wonder, have i done my best for Jesus,
When He has done so much for me?"

Blessed Assurance...

"When through the deep waters He calls thee to go,
The rivers of grief shall not thee overflow:
For He will be with thee in trouble to bless,
And sanctify to thee thy deepest distress.

When through fiery trials thy pathway shall lie,
His grace all sufficient shall be thy supply;
The flame shall not hurt thee, His only design
Thy dross to consume and thy gold to refine.

The soul that on Jesus has leaned for repose
he will not, He cannot, desert to its foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
He never will leave, he will never forsake."

-Montgomery, "How firm a foundation, ye saints"

Heavenly Melodies

There is a happy land faraway.
Far 'bove the blue.
Where saints in glory stand bright as day,
Praising the Lord God Triune.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, I can hear them sing
Where saints in glory stand bright as day,
Praising the Lord God Triune.

How excellent is the Name of the Lord!

hmm..its been a while! =p

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
John 15:13

God Almighty laid down His life for puny men like us, there can be no greater love!

-Love found a way-
Wonderful love that rescued me, Sunk deep in sin,
Guilty and vile as I could be - No hope within;
When every ray of light had fled, O glorious day!
Raising my soul from out the dead,
Love found a way!

Love found a way to redeem my soul,
Love found a way that could make me whole;
Love sent my Lord to the cross of shame,
Love found a way- O praise His holy name!

Love bro't my Saviour here to die On calvary,
For such a sinful wretch as I - How can it be?
Love bridged the gulf 'twixt me and heav'n, Taught me to pray;
I am redeemed, set free, forgiv'n
Love found a way.

Love opened wide the gates of light to heav'n's domain,
Where in eternal pow'r and might Jesus shall reign;
Love lifted me from depths of woe to endless day;
There was no help in earth below
Love found a way

are YOU ready???

By God's grace, He gave the committee the wisdom to decide on a very apt topic for our gospel rally this coming saturday:

"Are YOU ready for the END of the world?"

The end of the world is as true and as real as i am typing this post and whoever is reading this right now, it will happen, and its just a matter of time. No one knows when, and the question is are you ready?

why do you have to be ready?
wouldn't it just be another "event" down in the history of time.
this is what the Bible says:

"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:"
Hebrews 9:27

but what's the big deal about judgement?

"And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."
Revelation 20:15

The book of life, is where God has recorded down who has believed on Him and acknowledged and accepted Him as their personal Saviour and Lord.
There is no maybe, there is no perhaps, but a sure statement, that those who are not found written in the book of life will be cast into the lake of fire, where they will suffer torment for eternity.

So why do we have to be ready?
because there is no second chance once our lives are snuffed out..
the only time we have to believe is while God by His grace gives us breath and we awake to see another day through.

Are you ready?
