I’m Truly A Pioneer

It was amazing at worship today. I was looking into the face of Christ our LORD and then I found myself like six feet in front from where I was. I sought the LORD and HE answered me. HE told me I am ever plunging forward and upward. I was so touched and continued worshiping Jesus. Then our sermon was that love was best but we need to heed the love of this world which is of the flesh. Difficult. When you have compromise your faith, even in love. Therefore love is vital and important but if it  does not line up with Scripture then ….. you know the rest ………..
I’m truly a pioneer.

When we were at the Elite Athletes Association Annual Dinner, I won this voucher of $1000 on the table. My number was 11 and it was given to me by the lady who is chaperoning the rowers and the one wind-surfer. Then even more shocking was that my husband won first prize. It won a Huawei P10 mobile phone. It costs $4,500 and it had an extra card for more pictures and a clear cover. It is in gold btw. We elite only like the gold. And various other things from this one mobile company that gave three as first prizes. At the moment we are having great difficulty on working it as it is an android. We only use Apple so, it is fun and lovely.
I’m so loved.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Carrie Lam was there as well. With her sweet smile and gentle poise. With her husband.

We are packing. It is a slow process. But things are beginning to fall into place. As we are not doing anything anymore except for lunches and afternoon teas, I feel so much better. I am not tired anymore. I get my two hour naps. One day I had two.
All is well and we are happy happy happy.

Think when God is so good in our lives there is no option but to say we are
happy happy happy
I can just only manage my journal as we are still deep in the packing. It can only get better as the boxes stack and the cupboards get filled with things to go. And there is no more clothing nor things to pack away and the ones we do not want get given to the old lady downstairs who waits.

I have to add though that I do not have any book. Just bible study books. Honestly. Are you all shocked?
My husband said, ‘Do you truly have to keep all those bible books and bibles and DVD’s?’
‘Yes’ was my reply ‘I love them.’

What more to life is there than bible study and the presence of the LORD. 
O btw, looked up the word ‘sanctuary’ today. 
It means holiness. 
I was so touched by it, that my Father in heaven would be so kind as to put me with HIM in HIS holiness all my life. My entire life 
Is not my God so totally awesome.

I Never Give Up

Are you here?

My heart has gone. Gone into the future which is awaiting for me to go to. God is bidding me to be there and not here. The gate is so narrow. Hearing God’s voice. Seeing HIS face. Touching HIS hand. Interacting with with a holy God. Loving an intimately divine God. Like in the garden. HE is bidding me, go. Come quickly, says HE. I hear a different song and a different beat. The ancient call. But all Scripture is ancient. With all of my might and strength and will and emotions and mind I will follow our LORD Jesus who is the Christ who is the way the truth and the life.

 Will I ever give up? 
Never.
Not in my make-up to give up.
In line with the season of Pentecost.
Did I not receive the hand on my face at Easter?
Blessings.
Right.
In line with the power of the blood and Pentecost.
The empowerment of the Holy Spirit by fire.
Everything is connected.
Nothing is disconnected.
Think about it. 

I do not think I have to be perfect but I need to be willing to go the course with Christ our LORD no matter what may be. I have found though in the obedience to the word, the abundant blessing flow down into my life as God opens doors. One by one by one.

In line with the season of Pentecost as the apostle and disciples waited for the Holy Spirit. Indeed, I have already received the empowerment of the Holy Spirit by fire ages ago. But there are still more blessings to be attained. Who knows what the LORD has got in HIS blessings for me. HE knows all things. I only know I need to follow Jesus and live in obedience to the word of God.

Packing.

Well rested with plenty of two hour naps. Sleeping a lot. My husband is a blessing as he lets me sleep beside him on our sofa.

I kinda wondered about Debbie and Judson’s move to Kaohsiung and felt so jealous of their change after a decade, but then the Lord called us back to our house. The one He chose.

Truly excited about what He has in store for us at home.

Just figured we can put things into the cabinets we are shipping to save space.

Thank YOU Father For My Great Life

Sophie is coming along with her game and not backing up now as she is turning her wrist. No choice. She has no lower hand strength. She is happy about her game now. She said others kept on telling her about her backup ball and she was most unhappy about it. 

I went to our Elite Athlete Associate Annual Dinner last night and sat next to our windsurfer who has ranked second in the world ranking. Think she is going to be another Lee Lai San. She has been windsurfing since aged nine for seventeen years. She was big. Reminded me of my big body after gym work. Both her hands are so rough. With callouses. And, guess what, she too has difficulty holding her chopsticks. Know the feeling. When I was bowling I could not hold them either. My fingers would not close. She holds them the same way. Like a two year old child. Been there and done that. Elite sport. The cost of.

In all of this, my Father in heaven has been exceptionally good to me and my life. My entire life. I have no complaints. No regrets. Though it has been a hard, long journey I have achieved more than I could have ever imagined. The Lord has placed people in my life who have assisted me, therefore arriving in places where I would have ever imagined was possible or even known of these places of victory before I got there.

I would not have got to these places in my life if it were not for three lovely ladies throughout my life. But never would I have imagined this last part of the excellencies of Christ is most unbelievable. You walk and keep upwards, never looking back, as instructed. And when you stop for a moment for the seasons in Christ, you realize how far in this journey, you have come with the help of a friend.

2a6152816615106e4f902d0859e3ca9a 

Keeping in line in the season of Pentecost.
You receive when you fall in the time line of Scripture.
My reward.

Adding my essay on the mind, the will and the emotions. 
I truly thought about this last night on an elite athlete’s point of view, really. 
We do not attain what we do not have when we do not want it with all of our hearts. You have got to want it to attain it. It is more of what you want that you get it cos you want it. Therefore, when I want the medal, I win it cos I want it with all of my heart. The will of man plays a very important role in this desire that comes from the heart. The will takes us to the place of winning the want. As our minds work overtime on what we want and will it to be, the emotions that we feel inside. Deep inside, play a vital role in attaining the gold, silver or bronze. All of our emotions are thrown into the game. The one shot. Shot after shot after shot. When you are bowling for long hours, sometimes an entire day. An eight hour day, it is a long day but because you want it. You will it to be and throw every emotion into the want. You get it. 

I would liken myself in this same manner in which I have sought Christ in HIS word and in the Holy Spirit.

Psalm 139:7-10 (ESV)
 
7 Where shall I go from your Spirit?
Or where shall I flee from your presence?
8 If I ascend to heaven, you are there!
If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there!
9 If I take the wings of the morning
and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 even there your hand shall lead me,
and your right hand shall hold me.


Now I would conclude that I have got every spiritual blessing possible and am in the process of hanging in there to finish strong but being in the race with the same passion.

I have found that my past has dictated how and why and where and what and whom I have become because of the circumstances I have experienced. Of this world and spiritually. It has played a big difference in how I have approached what I have ever wanted and am able to arrive in places. I just gave it my all.  

Life is interesting, right.
I just feel you’ve got to engage in life in every aspect of it with every fiber of your being so that you do get somewhere. This is my idea anyways.

Getting On With My Global University Essays

Tonight I shall work on my Global University questions. I need to complete then within a week as we will be travelling for quite a long time around the world. We are taking time off for good behavior. The LORD is giving us a beautiful break. With boxes standing high all over the place it is glorious to be able to take such a long break away and travel and see places we have not yet seen. It’s lovely really. A bonus. Kinda like the LORD is blessing us more in the abundant of HIS blessings cos HE loves us cos we have been obedient to HIS voice. The only thing that can bring me to tears is this, I have been obedient to Christ  our LORD. It has been hard and tough. Not easy.

Daniel 7:9-14 ESV
The Ancient of Days Reigns

9“I kept looking
Until thrones were set up,
And the Ancient of Days took His seat;
His vesture was like white snow
And the hair of His head like pure wool.
His throne was ablaze with flames,
Its wheels were a burning fire.

10“A river of fire was flowing
And coming out from before Him;
Thousands upon thousands were attending Him,
And myriads upon myriads were standing before Him;
The court sat,
And the books were opened.

11“Then I kept looking because of the sound of the boastful words which the horn was speaking; I kept looking until the beast was slain, and its body was destroyed and given to the burning fire. 12“As for the rest of the beasts, their dominion was taken away, but an extension of life was granted to them for an appointed period of time.

Daniel 7:9-10
13“I kept looking in the night visions,

And behold, with the clouds of heaven
One like a Son of Man was coming,
And He came up to the Ancient of Days
And was presented before Him.

14“And to Him was given dominion,
Glory and a kingdom,
That all the peoples, nations and men of every language
Might serve Him.
His dominion is an everlasting dominion
Which will not pass away;
And His kingdom is one
Which will not be destroyed.

I think the most difficult thing is also this, when the books were opened and the verse in the bible that says they are white cos their robes are washed by the blood of the lamb and the other one by the word of their testimony. I am so touched by these verses in Scripture.

Revelation 7:13-14 ESV

13Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, “Who are these, clothed in white robes, and from where have they come?” 14I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

 

Revelation 12:11 ESV
11 And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.
I have ever been so touched by the word of God since a very tender and young age. My ears would turn to hear what was being read from Scripture. Remember, I loved reading. I found, I suppose as I was read Scripture as a child, I would seek Scripture. 

Will be breaking away from everything so that I can get my Global University essays completed and my packing done. Life is exceptionally good for me. All my life long. The LORD has blessed me my entire life. I have no complaints at all. God is good. Our church is good and so is our pastor and all our leaders. And the congregation. 

Genesis 2:7 ESV
then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.

Genesis 2:7 ESV
then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.
John 20:22 ESV
22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.


Acts 2:2-4 ESV

2 When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. 2 And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. 3 And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.

In line with Pentecost ……….

Tonight at Alpha a young man accepted Jesus as his LORD and Saviour. And I empowered him by the power of the Holy Spirit by fire. 

Therefore, every year, we are to continue to celebrate the birth of our LORD Jesus who is the Christ and HIS death for the salvation of all, His resurrection and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit by fire. 

Being reminded here to sing the psalms and scripture back to the LORD. 

Life Is Exceptionally Good, We Are Without Complaint


I had a lovely time with Sophie today. She enjoyed learning to release the ball from one step all the way to four steps. For better timing. Though she has a weak lower part of her hand, there were times when she could catch the ball. She just does not have the strength in the lower part of her palm. What a shame. Right. Being reminded she is only on a social basis so it is fine. She is not after a 210 average. She is such a delight. Her smile is contagious.

I taught her the steps today. She could do them. One by one. And then after an hour we skipped from four to one to three to four again to two and so on and so forth. And then I got her to pick up the ten on two steps and the head on three and the seven on one and so on and so forth. She was able to find her timing and walk to the foul line. It was nice to see. I demonstrated. She was happy. Tired but happy.
I love to teach by explanation and she gets it sometimes but still she still backs up when she comes back the next time for a bit. Until I fix it.
I am enjoying Sophie and Sophie is enjoying me.
As we are going away I called MC to take over and she said OK. MC is a tough cookie. I learnt a lot from her on tour. No games. Just bowl. Nothing but the game. It was a lesson in discipline in elite sport. Once, Connie, Ann and I were in the hotel room all day long as our flight was after dinner, so as they slept all day long, so did I. It was fun. We were not allowed to step out of the hotel lest we eat something that disagreed with our stomachs or got lost or just got hurt. No camel rides in the Middle East for me. Not been on one yet. No swimming pool.
Life is exceptionally good and all is well.
We are happy.
My bible says to sing bible verses, the songs of old. It’s better it says on one of the books. It is good to learn more things. Good things. The things of God.
