Sometimes I wonder why I admire only certain Kpop artists- BigBang, Huh Gak, etc.
But look at G-Dragon's video above, he certainly got everybody in the studio standing, young or old, man or woman!
I got his own swag, and one can see that he indeed put everything into whatever he is doing, no matter singing or composing.

BigBang, Psy, G-Dragon, Epik High, 2NE1.. These are the few Korean concerts that I would pay to go just to be immensed in the atmosphere that they can built with their performances, I know I will be so impressed.

Maybe just maybe I am bias to YG Family artists, but dude, they got the best control of stage I have ever seen!

A Resilient Person

Look at how beautiful the flowers are at the side of the road where it is almost impossible to grow, but these plants are very persistent and resilient, and they made it until they bloomed.

On Sunday, A.R Bernard preached about leadership but one thing sticked to my little brain.

A resilient person: -
1. Has a passion for what they do
2. Walk in forgiveness (having positive evaluation)
3. Live in hope
4. Strongly believe that they can achieve the goals they are striving for

Funny, but somehow I relate to being a resilient person very much. I've toiled in NUS Architecture School, sometimes thinking about quitting but knowing at the back of my head, I will get through this and gained experiences that not everyone gets. The hope in the Lord helped me grow and survive the 5 years of tremendous stress. And as a result, I came out a stronger person and loving Jesus even more each day.

Yet, the best part of the sermon is this:-

'Resilient people know how to encourage themselves in the Lord' 
-A.R Bernard-

I sat there and thought about the sentence. Wow but I would like to re-phrase the sentence if possible.

The only way one can do it is when you have a relationship with God, because with this relationship you know that it is God who is encouraging you as you go on a tough day. And even when no one else is there for you, you know that God is walking beside you everyday, cheering you on, encouraging you, supporting you through all the deep valleys.

'Resilient people know that God is walking with them everyday.'

When the gap between friends became relatively big after a period of time, you tend to not understand each other, not knowing what is happening in the other person's life, not relating to that person anymore. Then you start to doubt this friendship, and start being judgmental on certain things.

This week had just been like that. Felt as if I've lost someone because I just couldn't make and piece the things said and done. Totally incomprehensible and I cannot understand them at all. Funny thoughts came flying into the head and nothing could be done to rectify it, I thought to myself.

BUT, when one party starts to open up, to make an effort to understand, it starts knitting back together once again. Hard, awkward and frustrating at times, but eventually, the lost ties starts to come together again.
Maybe that is what friendships are made of. Circumstances that will just either break it or makes it stronger. Then, you will know the friends that might not be there for you in every single step of your life, but they know who the real person inside you are and THIS keeps the friendship going. Make an effort to be a part of the friend's life because it is worth it.

P/S: Don't even know whether I am making any sense, but I am just typing my thoughts down.

THE Prayer Meeting

Revelation 21: 1-2 (NIV)

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.
I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.

Psalm 34: 3 (NIV)

Glorify the LORD with me;
     let us exalt his name together.

Today during Prayer Meeting, the presence of God is so strong in the room.
A small prayer meeting, with people coming together to exalt His name, and in unison, we sang and lifted His name high.

What He adore most when the His people come together and pray?
When we pray that His Glory will be revealed amidst all these, when we pray that His Kingdom will come, when we focus on Him, trust Him and not give a thought of how the world turns or reacts because ultimately everything is about Him.

And at the corner of the room, I see Him.
Initially He gave that smile when we started the session, then as we became more focused on Him, praising and worshipping Him whole-heartedly, I see an even wider smile on the face and He became more excited. Then a while later, He stood up excitedly,dancing along.
It is this time that I felt as if He opened heaven for us to take a little peek inside. Oh boy, how magnificent it is even though it is just a portion. By this time, tears already started to roll down uncontrollably because God is so real and I find myself being so immensed and absorbed in the His love.

Then my soul started to sing this song, a song we used to sing back in YC FGA KL.
It talks about this experience, in the closest way words can express.
So here it is, for you guys to listen.
When a song becomes more than a song and into an encounter with God.

I see heaven before me
Angels passing around me
Here I stand in awe of Your beauty
Captured by Your holiness

Lift up your eyes 
All of heaven's in worship
Angels rejoice and the clouds will be filled
With the wonder of Your name
With the wonder of Your name

The train of His robe fills the temple with glory
Heavenly hosts fall before Him in worship 
Crying Holy,Holy,Holy is the Lord God Almighty

Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God Almighty

Annoying Little Things

The difference between being a follower and someone who wants to know the real intention before deciding to do a certain thing just because a person I admire is the one who suggested it.

Sometimes I think whether I am thinking too much, but I can't seemed to get over it until I get why the idea came up in the first place. Why am I so sensitive? Is it because of the person, or it just didn't make sense to do? I hope it is the latter not the former. I need to go re-examine my heart, to come to the bottom of it.

Well, this incident made me realised how much I've grown to not just be a follower but to understand why I am doing certain things. =). This is the one of the good thing that comes out among the annoying little things. =)
