I thank God that I am rooted in Him, I am rooted in a church.
Because, it is these that keeps me sane when tribulations come my way.

Ephesians 3:13
Therefore I ask that you do not lose heart at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.

Hebrews 12:7
If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons, for what son is there whom a father does not chasten?

Colossians 3:14
But above all these things put on LOVE, which is the bond of PERFECTION.

When we are faced with tribulations, see it as joy.
For it is through all these that God will be able to reveal Himself to you.
To strengthen your characteristics, to mould you to be more like Him.
At the end of the day, it is LOVE that conquers all.
Therefore do all things with LOVE. For love is the bond of perfection.
LOVE. It kept me going. Giving love and being loved.
Thank you for the love, that You are even willing to die for me.

How I Love You by Planet Shakers

Jesus I'm in love with You
Speak to me 
Whisper Your words of truth
Take my heart 
Won't You make me new
Jesus, how I love You
How I love You

How my soul longs for You
To be with You 
Adore You
Nothing more I want to do
Than to sing to You

Today, I rushed back to attend service after my plane landed at 9.40am at Changi Airport.
I told myself I will be there at Suntec no matter how late it is, or how late I am going to be.
The things I've been through the past weeks, I thought I was going to go crazy by the time it ends. I've not been anywhere or seen anyone else the entire month except for the people that I had to. I was practically in my own little bubble. Taking in all the emotional breakdown pretty seriously. I thought I was just going to go through everything alone because nobody understands the misery that I am going through.

The love of God is indeed powerful. A lengthy service, half the time, I was hoping that Ps. Kong will finish with all the church history, I don't want to listen to all that today.
Somehow, by the time it ended, I am reminded again why do I always go back over and over again to my very first love. It is indeed unforgettable, and most of the time, it is this love encounter that kept me in church, keep me pushing through. Thank you, God! Now I have more confidence to face the world, and to shine your love to other people.

Sufferings. Character. Faith.
Count your sufferings as joy when you are tested because when you come out of it, you will come through shining as gold. AMEN! -Ps. Kong Hee-
