Joey~

I always thank God for you. You’ve been such a big blessing in my life. You always support me. And you’re a great companion. (and a great caretaker) (and now I’m fat)

Continue to be passionate for God. Continue to be passionate for the less privileged. You’ll be a super woman for God one day. I really believe that.
May your bond with God grow stronger and may He bless you more and more in every way. Because when He blesses you, I’m blessed as well.
Happy valentines day Joey

Monkey Business

There was once in my life when a whole story that surrounded me happened while I was asleep. I’ll try to make it sound as dramatic as I can (And as well as I can remember how my mom told it).

One afternoon, I was a-napping. This afternoon happened about maybe 15 years ago. I was still a kid. My younger brother, who was probably still a toddler, thought it would be a good idea to put some cream on my feet. My bed wasn’t a tall bed, and he probably felt like I needed some pampering. So, he generously applied as much body cream on my entire leg as possible. He didn’t forget some of my arms and maybe put some on my face as well. And he also put some on my clothes, just in case.
My mom found him with cream all over his hands and I think some on the floor. She also found an almost empty bottle of cream. And an eldest son sleeping peacefully. Unaware of the mess that was not around him, but on him.
Honestly, I don’t remember any of that. This is what I do remember. I remember waking up feeling a little weird. Like a sort of dry-slippery. Too smooth. Like I could fall if I took a step out of my bed. I remember not understanding why. And I could remember my mom looking very very very amused, like something was very wrong yet very right at the same time.

As you would probably have guessed by now, my mom cleaned up all the mess, wiped me down, wiped my brother down, wiped the floor, and cleared everything up, so that when I woke up, there was no evidence of anything wrong. So this story was really my mom’s story than mine. A story about how children learned from adults how to act like adults.

Simon Says “I Want To Have That Power!”

Lesson Of The Day:

 

Being worse than me doesn’t make them more of a sinner than I am.

 

 


 

today i will be covering my devotion on Acts chapter 8

 

Verses 1, 3-4

 

On that day a great persecution broke out against the church in Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria…

 But Saul began to destroy the church. Going from house to house, he dragged off both men and women and put them in prison. Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went.

 

i have heard many encouraging stories of churches and christians seeing revival and how they grew in number and spirit like crazy.

but its amazing how much a church can grow because of persecution.

so much of the stories i’ve heard are about how the christians are persecuted.

and these occurrences makes the church grow stronger instead of weaker.

this is a great example of how the church becomes more proactive when being persecuted.

it’s like the church needs persecution to be the catalyst to make change happen.

 

i hope that doesnt need to happen in Malaysia.

 

 

Verses 5-8

 

Philip went down to a city in Samaria and proclaimed the Messiah there. When the crowds heard Philip and saw the signs he performed, they all paid close attention to what he said. For with shrieks, impure spirits came out of many, and many who were paralyzed or lame were healed. So there was great joy in that city.

 

sometimes the best proof of Christ is the most simple:

joy.

 

 so many of my friends who love God the most have the same trait.

they bring joy into their friends’ lives.

people just feel happy and like to have them around.

and it’s consistent.

from the most melancholic, shy, and meek, to the most brave, loud and friendly,

if they love God, they bring joy around with them.

 

maybe we should assess ourselves as individuals.

are we bringing joy to people around us?

as a church, are we bringing joy to our city?

 

or even better, as verse 8 states, GREAT JOY.

a Great God should bring Great Joy right?

and He does it through those who have Him in their hearts, right?

 

 

Verses 9-24

 

Now for some time a man named Simon had practiced sorcery in the city and amazed all the people of Samaria. He boasted that he was someone great, 10 and all the people, both high and low, gave him their attention and exclaimed, “This man is rightly called the Great Power of God.” 11 They followed him because he had amazed them for a long time with his sorcery. 12 But when they believed Philip as he proclaimed the good news of the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. 13 Simon himself believed and was baptized. And he followed Philip everywhere, astonished by the great signs and miracles he saw.

14 When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent Peter and John to Samaria. 15 When they arrived, they prayed for the new believers there that they might receive the Holy Spirit, 16 because the Holy Spirit had not yet come on any of them; they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 17 Then Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.

18 When Simon saw that the Spirit was given at the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money 19 and said, “Give me also this ability so that everyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.”

20 Peter answered: “May your money perish with you, because you thought you could buy the gift of God with money! 21 You have no part or share in this ministry, because your heart is not right before God. 22 Repent of this wickedness and pray to the Lord in the hope that he may forgive you for having such a thought in your heart. 23 For I see that you are full of bitterness and captive to sin.”

24 Then Simon answered, “Pray to the Lord for me so that nothing you have said may happen to me.”

 

 Here are random thoughts i had while reading this:

(in no particular order)

 

This simon is so demanding.

no wonder the game is called “Simon Says”

 

this man is very career minded.

he wants to better himself in the sorcery and “amazing” (or showing off to) people.

which is totally not God’s heart.

which made me think, did simon really receive the Holy Spirit?

 

Good news: the gift of God is free!

 

“captive to sin”

reminds me of how dangerous it is to be playing with magic, spirits, and mediums.

I’m Not Crying – Flight Of The Conchords

 

So, you’re leaving, aren’t you’ 
I knew it when you said just then when you told me you were leaving 
That’s when I definitely knew 
But if you’re trying to break my heart 
Your plan is flawed from the start 
You can’t break my heart, it’s liquid 
It melted when I met you 
And as you turn around to leave 
Don’t’ turn back to me 
Don’t turn around and see if I’m crying 
I’m not crying 

I’m not crying 
It’s just been raining 
on my face 
And if you think you see some tear tracks down my cheeks 
Please. Pleasee, don’t tell my mates 
I’m not crying 
No, I’m not crying 
And if I am crying 
It’s not because of you 
It’s because I’m thinking about a friend of mine who you don’t know who is dying 
That’s right, dying 
These aren’t tears of sadness because you’re leaving me 
I’ve just been cutting onions 
I’m making a lasagna 
For one 
Oh, I’m not crying 
No 
There’s just a little bit of dust in my eye 
That’s from the path that you made when you said your goodbye 
I’m not weeping because you won’t be here to hold my hand 
For your information there’s an inflammation in my tear gland 
I’m not upset because you left me this way 
My eyes are just a little sweaty today 
They’ve been looking around 
They’re like searching for you 
They’ve been looking for you 
Even though I told them not to 
These aren’t tears of sadness 
They’re tears of joy 
I’m just laughing 
Ha ha ha-ha ha 
I’m sitting at this table called love 
Staring down at the irony of life 
How come we’ve reached this fork in the road 
And yet it cuts like a knife’ 
I’m not crying 
I’m not crying 
I’m not cry-y-y-y- 
-y-y-y-y-ing
