It has been two weeks since I am in Singapore.  Since I landed, Andrew was generous in offering his place for me to stay.  I took one room and this was my ‘home’. But at last, tomorrow, after receiving my Employment pass, I will move to a room a friend helped me find.  As such, this afternoon, I found myself packing again. Through the process, there was glimpses of...

Devotion: Priorities

D

From My Utmost for His Highest… Your priorities must be God first, God second, and God third, until your life is continually face to face with God and no one else is taken into account whatsoever. Your prayer will then be, “In all the world there is no one but You, dear God; there is no one but You.”  Keep paying the price. Let God see that you are willing to live up to the vision...

OMF Acceptance

O

Been a bit busy lately.  Don’t have much time to blog. Someday, I will tell the whole story…in short, OMF (Overseas Missionary Fellowship) offered me an  IT role in their Headquarter in Singapore. After a lengthy application process, they accepted me. It had been indeed a longer process than I would imagine.  Partly because of my health condition.  Having a liver...

Lay down your life

L

This is a reflection from today’s devotion from Oswald Chamber’s Utmost for His Highest…. A while ago, I had this interesting thought…through the journey of seeking His Kingdom above everything else….I realized all my stuff is His.  I sat on my bed.  Looked over my bookshelves and told myself, ‘all the books belonged to Him.’  I...

Change of heart

C

In Dec 25, 2007, I signed a contract to God that I would seek Him first in everything I do. A few weeks later, I visited my previous English pastor at Rhode Island.  Before his congregation, he stood up and introduced me…. “This is Cliff.  Did you know he sign a contract to God? [make a signature sign in the air]  Do you hear that?  He is going to serve the Lord...

Bids me come and die

B

I had the fortunate pleasure of sharing my testimony to a youth fellowship last night at an Indonesian church. Whenever I talked about how God worked in my life, it is almost as if I am testifying to myself.  I am once reminded of the journey God took me.  At one point in my testimony, I shared how the ‘unfortunate‘ circumstances of losing my teeth in a bike accident in fact...

Turn away from it

T

Dr. Wilbur Chapman once gave this rule of thumb for determining our way of living. He said: “Anything that dims my vision of Christ, or takes away my taste for Bible study, or cramps my prayer life, or makes Christian work more difficult is wrong for me, and I must, as a Christian, turn away from it.” (Source) As such, I am not doing the half Mississauga marathon tomorrow. There is one focus...

The following video is from Jackie Pullinger. She was a missionary that gone to Hong Kong to help the poor and the drug addict. This is taken from Wiki about Jackie: At the age of 20 Pullinger graduated from the Royal College of Music having specialized in the oboe. She wanted to be a missionary, so she wrote to various missionary organizations. At first she wanted to go to Africa, but then she...

Price of Jesus…

P

“Do you believe that Jesus is worth abandoning everything for? Do you believe him enough to obey him and to follow him wherever he leads, even when the crowds in our culture–maybe even our churches–turn the other way?” (Source: Radical by David Platt) I was going through my blogs a few days ago. I like reading what I wrote. Some thoughts that lingers in the air. A post I...

Is it ok to be medicore?

I

A re-post from Glocal Christianity: Have you ever heard the expression, “The group hikes at the speed of the slowest person”?I heard someone use that the other week, as a compassionate excuse for slowing down for people who’re slow to adapt to change. My thoughts? Sounds very wise … if you consider mediocrity a virtue … and if you’re ok with the church not being here...
