learning to parent

l

Sometimes when you look back, you are amazed at how much you change. I remembered when I first came back to Singapore from Canada back in mid-2019, I was in a shock of being a stay-at-home dad. There are, of course, other factors that caused me to be stressed out. Being in Singapore and learning to survive as an infant and a toddler was no easy feat. Where in Canada, where I grew up, I know how...

The Next Leg: 40-60

T

Yesterday was my birthday and I turned 41. For the past few weeks, I realized something, I am getting old :D. No kidding. Whereas I once view myself as the 20 something who go out and do something, I realized I have more responsibility to consider. Mind you, this may sound like a bad thing, as the culture often tells us that we have no life once we are married or have kids. We are told, or we...

God who sustains our marriage

G

Whenever someone I’ve known is Christian and is going to get married, I will often send him or her this quote from Dietrich Bonhoeffer: It is not your love that sustains the marriage, but from now on, the marriage that sustains your love. How I read it before is that from now on, it is your commitment, the vow you’ve made before God and men, that will sustain the love. Not your love...

Acting like an athiest

A

In the past few weeks, I’ve been evaluating the things which make me anxious.   I believe there are ungodly beliefs, and God is training me to trust in Him more. Oswald Chambers once wrote that when disaster strikes or when pressure comes, a Christian will act like an atheist.  That is, they act as if God doesn’t exist at all. In a short few weeks, it looked like God is...

David’s Anointing

D

This post is more of a prelude to David coming into the scene in the Bible. His first famous achievement is defeating Goliath. I plan to go into that later, but I like to set up the stage on who David is. After God rejected Saul as King of Israel, God told Samuel to go to Bethlehem to anoint the new king. Samuel didn’t know who he is and obeyed God (1 Samuel 16:1) So it was, when they came, that...

Rush

R

Today I went to Toronto General Hospital to see my transplant doctor. Traveling from Mississauga, I rushed to downtown at 7:30 to make it to the 9:30 am appointment. Rush out the door and stuck in traffic.Rush to find a parking lot and run into the subway.Rush past people to check myself in at the Transplant Out-patient clinic. By the time I see my transplant doc, it was 12:30 pm. I was anxious...

Cliff’s guide on how to become a better paintball player

C

  Last week during church camp, some of the younger fellas (in their early 20s) asked me to join them to play paintball.  Growing up, I never played any team sports or considered myself athletic (I still don’t).  The first ‘sport’ I got into was paintball.  Though many do not considered as a sport, for me, it is the first sport I got serious (next to triathlon). Normally, I try to write a...

This blog is moving…..

T

Hi everyone, I want to thank you for reading and subscribing my blog all these years.  I am sure you noticed since I came to Singapore I hadn’t been as active in posting.  I apologize for that. I hope you find this blog an encouragement. I never consider myself much of a blogger.  This blog is more of a space for me to put down my own thoughts and convictions.  It is...

My Missionary Manual: So I send you

M

I picked this from my wife’s bookshelve when I first got married.  This is perhaps one of the best books I read on preparing as a missionary for a long time.  I always learn a lot from Oswald Chambers’ writings.  I read his devotions, My Utmost for His Highest, on a daily basis.  This book is deep and solid.  Some of the thoughts and wisdom behind it is so...
