Some say you're just a good man

But I say you're alive

Some say you're just a prophet
Some say you were wise
Some say you were just a man
But I say you are God

You are my God
I will shout your fame to all the earth
I will lift your name on high
And the world will know your greatness
You are my God

I know you're the Messiah
You gave your life for me
And I know you're the only way
Jesus you're my God
You are my God

I will shout your fame to all the earth
I will lift your name on high
And the world will know your greatness
You are my God

Jesus I will shout your fame to all the earth
I will lift your name on high
I will show the world your goodness
As I live a life that shouts your fame
As I live a life that shouts your fame

Jesus I decide to live
Live a life that shouts your fame
Shout your fame

"from the very start, have purpose in your heart".


Through the years- Kenny Rogers

I can't remember when you weren't there
When I didn't care for anyone but you
I swear we've been through everything there is
Can't imagine anything we've missed
Can't imagine anything the two of us can't do

Through the years, you've never let me down
You turned my life around, the sweetest days I've found
I've found with you ... Through the years
I've never been afraid,
I've loved the life we've made
And I'm so glad I've stayed, right here with you
Through the years

I can't remember what I used to do
Who I trusted, who I listened to before
I swear you taught me everything I know
Can't imagine needing someone so
But through the years it seems to me
I need you more and more

Through the years, through all the good and bad
I know how much we had, I've always been so glad
To be with you ... Through the years
It's better every day, you've kissed my tears away
As long as it's okay, I'll stay with you
Through the years

Through the years, when everything went wrong
Together we were strong, I know that I belong
Right here with you ... Through the years
I never had a doubt, we'd always work things out
I've learned what life's about, by loving you
Through the years

Through the years, you've never let me down
You've turned my life around, the sweetest days I've found
I've found with you ... Through the years
It's better every day, you've kissed my tears away
As long as it's okay, I'll stay with you
Through the years...

@ 3:08 PM

haha in an attempt to bring our the funness in camp i shall talk about the activities :)

monday.

was on bus A and it was a 2+ hour trip to mersing. sat beside hilary and i regretted it cos his jokes were soooooo cold and lame hahahaha. ask stupid questions like "why did a bear die in the desert" then he say the honey stars bear went to space to get the "honey stars" and then on the way down his parachute didnt open and so he died and ended up in the desert -.- played some guitar with him and talked about BYMET. whooooo it sounded really exciting. but then he say next year might not have. WHAT THE HECK. i'll just pray and leave it to God haha.

reached mersing at 12.30+ and then went to our dorms. my dorm was all the p6 and sec1s. only got 1 p6. this year got like hundreds of p6 girls but only like 2 or 3 p6 guys. what a shame... yu han (p6), cedric, esmond, noah, ryan, asher, me, brandon, jong! haha we took the smallest dorm and i think ours was like the most peaceful and least smelly among the guys' dorm. haha the library one was like so many people then super smelly cos everyone hung their clothes like nobody's business.

icebreaker was quite interesting haha. and then the scissors-paper-stone- jump jump game right. walao i win so many people then got one long chain behind me. then cedric that idiot go hide one corner then challenge me then i lose -.- so he won the whole chain.

at night was the first message and after that it was a video about this guy called johnny who was completely disfigured. i cried lah. cos it was so touching.

anyway we had our first dorm d and everyone was quite quiet. but anyway we shared and taught them quite alot lah.

tuesday.

woke up at 6 and did quiet time. breakfast was nasi lamek i think. anyway we had singspiration! this year's camp songs are sooooo cool lah. especially the camp song itself. compoased by the HO brothers. oh ya then hilary kept singing this really dumb song everytime he bathe.

"Ho ho ho ho HO REN AN
Ho ho ho ho HO XIN AN
Ho ho ho Hosanna
I've got the joy of the Lord"

BS was also super fruitful. half the time we were just sharing and sharing and everyday we only covered like 3 questions. hilary, levin, prime, jonathan tessensohn, me, xin an, uncle andrew.

afternoon was batik painting! and i am soooo proud to say that PURE came in first :D :D i drew the words and maria did the sheep hahahahaha.

tue night was a big night. after dinner was preach the word! 15 of us had 15 different messages of 15 different verses in philippians. reuben, brandon, lucas, marvin, xin an, jordan, nick kan, aaron toke, ren an, hilary, ryan, timothy, jonathan boon, jonathan lim, me. it was nervous and haha my hands were shaking like mad. but overall everyone did a great job lah i must say.

dorm devotion was led by cedric and ryan and it was quite meaningful.

wednesday

woke up at 6 and wanted to go and jog in the morning. but then the guys left 5min ago so had to wait for elsia and the rest of the girls so that can go and follow the guys together. but then when we were about to run and the gates were opened it started to rain so hahaha the guys came chionging through the gates. so we didn't have our morning jog.

afternoon was station games and it was quite fun lah. everyone had to put on blindfolds and move from station to station but then along the way lucas, bryan and me sorta 'cheated' so we were walking blindfolded to each station without anyone holding us hahahaha. i thought the charades thing was cool lah. our group broke the record and completed 32 cards! :) me, lucas, yu han and joanna chia did all the drawing, acting and talking hahaha.

after dinner was night workshop and quite sad that i'm only 14 -.- so out of 5 i couldnt go to 3 cos they were for 15 and above. so went for "Gifts and gifting" by jin song. it was quite meaningful and ya, i learnt about how talents are different from gifts and how to build on my spiritual gifts.

dorm D was led by esmond and noah and noah shared quite abit and he impressed me. haha great potential man!

thursday

woke up at 5.40 so that i wont miss the jogging. turned out to be nothing much cos we jogged at the beach outside and it was only like a 200m track so we kept turning back and forth. then ben and i decided to sweat so we raced and haha he quite fast lah actually.

afternoon we went to the beach again for games! It was just 2 games and competing with other groups lah. Crossover and Captain's Ball. Crossover was kinda cool man. our group mostly did the 4-4-1 formation then we put all the tall tall girls in front. maria, robyn, liling, joanna. second row were the tall guys timothy, chong yi, bryan and me. then the solo king was lucas HAHAHA.

got once we were playing against GOOD and then they put jonathan tessensohn, ben and ryan kwan on the first line. so our whole group shifted to the right and walked past ryan kwan cos he abit height disadvantage so cannot touch our shoulders :)

captain's ball was abit rough lah. but cos our group don't have a good guard and catcher so we lost all 3 matches...

anyway it was a fun and exciting afternoon. but at night was better.

OLYMPIC BIBLE QUIZ!

first round were william, hui qian, brandon, nat, pei xian, uncle robert. haha i watched them compete then i already so scared lorh. super competitive sia! 2nd round was me, joanna, josh, jia yin, ren an, lucius. first few questions couldnt answer so my group had 0 points for quite some time. then i was thinking that i would be the one who will sit there until the whole game ends and then my group will get kicked out. but then hahaha thank God some questions i knew how to answer so soon i was able to answer quite alot of questions and we made it to the final round :)

final round was against hui qian and william. and the good thing was that those two didn't memorise philippians so all thte "quote" and "complete this verse" questions were all given to me for free. haha so PURE owned in the quiz with 110 points. from second-last we became third :)

after that was memorising of phlippians and each group sent each representative for each chapter. mine was elsia, li ling, bryan and lucas. quite good combo lah. then after that each group sent one person to memorise the whole book (4 chapters, 100+ verses) the SIX were: rachel, nat chia, pei xian, me, josh and ren an. it was super tiring lorh. after each chapter we needed a break cos otherwise too tiring for our brains. chapter 1 and 2 everyone memorise until super smooth but come to chapter 3 and 4 we started to falter hahaha.

but whatever happened, PURE owned on thursday night :D

then there was black out! and john mark tried to scare everybody as usual. and woah the sky had so many stars!! so everyone had dorm D in the dark but thank God halfway the power came back on.

Friday

friday was our last day of camp and ya it was very meaningful. last singspiration, last message, last BS, last lunch and so on. we shared alot and in the afternoon all the games group were preparing for camper's night. my group was very hard to act out lah. cos our people are all the study and brainy type and not the joker and acting type hahaha. but anyway we brainstormed for quite abit on the story line and practised like one time only before going for dinner.

every group did a good job for their skit, i must say. hahahaha but this year dono why everybody all become lame like hilary. especially the leader's skit lah! wah super cold.

supper was super! actually every night was super. KFC, cakes, muffins etc. and the fun in the night began.

campfire was very nice. and the sky was filled with even more stars! saw about 5 shooting stars that night lah. and we did lotsa sharing and singing.

what happened from 1am to 6am i shall not elaboarate hahahaha.

Saturday

my bus came late cos apprently, i don't know why, the bus' battery got stolen so it was delayed for like 2 hours. so we waited at the campsite until 11.30 playing all sorts of games and listening to hilary's lame jokes. had lunch ono the way at some ulu place and the food was like oooer. reached amk at 4.30 !! super late lah.

and i almost completely lost my voice after the camp.

but the best camp ever.... is next year :)

HEY BACK FROM YOUTH CAMP 2007! :D

honestly, i think this year's youth camp was super enriching and a life changing experience for me. the activities were super but i thought that the lessons that were learnt are way more important.

well, this camp is one camp that I am super involved in. Pianist, Giving thanks, Dorm Leader, Preach the Word, Olympic Bible Quiz... but I thank the Lord, that He has been so good to grant me these opportunities.

this is my first year as a dorm leader and i was in charge of the P6 and sec 1 dorm. well honestly i thought that all 7 of them were really well behaved and they have great potential. and even as I led in the dorm devotions, i myself learnt many precious lessons from the other 2 dorm leaders jong and brandon. all five nights were regarding on the thoughts we should have according to the theme verse- Phillipians 4:8. This year, many stuffs happened and often the times my thoughts weren't glorifying to the Lord at all. and from thoughts comes the behaviour and I think that my behaviour wasnt at all christian-like at times. and the dorm devotion really helped me to think about the things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely and of good report. And as I shared during the discussions, it was a challenge for me to practise what I preach and to have the mind of Christ.

I shared this part during the campfire and i think this is the most important lesson i have learnt. my dad strongly encouraged me to memorise the whole book of philippias and also to participate in the Preach the Word thing but I was reluctant. And when I slowly compelled, the reason why I agreed to do it was so as to glorify myself. But I thank the Lord that during my preparation of my message and the memorising of Phillipians, He led me to His word which really convicted me. "Let nothing be done out of selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind, let each esteem others better than himself". In the process of memorising, I stumbled on this verse in Philippians 2 and ya. it struck me. and I also realised that many times I did not put others first, let alone God in my life. my priorities were mixed up. And still, in my pride and sinful nature, I feel weak to listen to the Spirit's leading. And this is where my preparation for my message became personal to me.

Phillipians 4:13
"I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me."

This verse encouraged me alot. And I am reassured that as long as I stay close to the Lord Jesus Christ, I will learn to be faithful to Him and to be humble. And with this strength, it is my prayer to be a humble and helpful person, putting God and others in front of me.

The talks by our brother Keith Keyser were especially enriching. I began to learn and understand what was in the mind of our Lord Jesus Christ during those times of trials before He went to the cross. He had foreknowledge and He knew that everything was going according to His will. This taught me not to be too anxious. As Phillipians 4 puts it.

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God."

Many times I don't understand why things must turn out the wrong way and why I had to face so many trials and troubles. But now I know, with the comfort of the Lord Jesus Christ, that everything is according to God's plan. And all things will work out for the good of the glory of God the Father.

In this camp, I got to know so many people personally and I really thank the Lord for that. My bible study group was really super and Uncle Andrew and Xin An did a great job in leading us to different portions of the scripture. I learnt many valuable lessons and was also able to share some of my thoughs and experiences. My games group (PURE) was great too! Well though my group is one of the quieter ones but I guess all of us were bonded together. Everybody contributed in one way or another during the games, skit or competitions. And we tied for 2nd place! :D :D haha 2nd for 2 years in a row.

anyway, last night was quite fruitful. i drank like 3 cups of coffee so that I wouldnt fall asleep and finally slept for 1+ hour at 6am today hahahahaha. But during the night, I got to talk to many people, especially the sec 1s and encouraged them to grow up and be an example to the younger ones. And ya. we had a heart to heart talk with them and I pray that the sec 1 batch this year will continue to mature and be able to serve in the Lord's ministry.

Overall, this camp really helped me to mature in my thinking alot. Especially due to all the memorising and bible studies and such. But ya. Next year is gona be a tough year ahead.

And I want to start right.

imuzi.


After Your Own Heart

My Creator God
The perfect love You've given me,
Jesus, my Saviour
All I ask of You
That only Him be formed in me
Grant me now, a contrite heart

Take my hand, hold it tight, dear Lord I pray
Calm my heart, still my soul, open my ears
So that I may hear Your still small voice that's speakingto me
All my life, let me be
One after your own heart

"When I think of You
your loveliness so pure and true,
such perfection
I can't understand
You're loving such a worthless one
May Your beauty, shine through me"

Take my hand, hold it tight, dear Lord I pray
Calm my heart, still my soul, open my eyes
So that I may know Your loving hand is leading me on
All my life, let me be
One after Your own heart

Lord you know my mind
You know I often stray,
my thoughts are prone to wander
Guard me with Your laws
And shape me with Your glory, Lord
Let Your perfect will reign in me

Take my hand, hold it tight, dear Lord I pray
Keep me strong,lead me on holding Your arms
So that as I face each coming day
I'll know I'm Yours
All my life, let me be
One after Your own heart

So that when I stand before Your throne
I'll know You're my God
Christ with me, Christ in me
Lovely perfection, at last

@ 11:25 AM

haha yesterday was a fun arrangement :)

had training in the morning and it was really wet. then i had a hard time convincing xuan ler and jun han to go watch golden compass at jurong point. cos norris went to hong kong in the morning and gideon thought it was lame and edwin went to JB for shopping :S

met those two at 2 and had lunch. after that we were debating on whether to watch enchanted or golden compass cause GC was an anti-christian movie lah. then we couldnt decide and so we called gid and he said Enchanted :D

and the show was at 4.35 so we had about 2 hours to kill. after buying tickets walk around then xuan ler want to go play halo 3 at those xbox stands so we waited for like 30min for an indian dude to finish playing but then he didnt finish lah. then go arcade watch people play -.- very sian right. anyway when 4.20 came we went to watch. then the guys dint really appreciate it lorh. but i also felt that some of the dancing and singing makes me uncomfortable.

but overall i liked the movie :D haha i feel sorry for the prince tho.

next movie:"I am Legend." WILL SMITH!

next week: YOUTH CAMP :D:D

saturday was quite boring. i had a one-on-one talk with uncle kenneth wong during the preach the word session -.- since depot yp had outing and amk ppl apprently forgot other then those who went BYMET. but it was real fruitful lah i should say. and the BYMET people left! dawn, robyn, brandon, titus, jethro, jong, hilary, lucas, benchia, timothy! haha next year, next year...

sunday afternoon went to take japanese test for grade 3. the guy beside me was 34 years old :O i think i was the youngest in my class hahaha but it was very long lah. 3 hours!! then after that waited for 5 buses cause there were 1000 participants trying to go home D: so i gave up and walked one bus ahead to get an empty bus! so clever right.

monday, today. training was kinda fun cos everyone had to bat left hand. kay i won't say who is the fastest drag-bunter in the team :) me lah. after that gid, nor and me went to eat at market and then visited edwin's house! super loooong lah his house. i like it tho. then at 2pm went to toh yi court to play bball. eggy and jaye were there but jia wasnt. so don care play 3v2 and we (GUYS!) owned 21-13 :D cos eggy said she sick of owning guys so we decided to play serious for once haha. then jia came and then we give chance say rematch. but still won 21-20 :D:D kaylah it was a hard fight.

went home by bus then sat for like 30min before alighting. wah tell you ah, when i stand up to tap the card right, my legs were like totally straightened then cannot bend one. super cramp sia. then i tried my best not to walk like a handicap and sat at the bus stop cos i couldnt walk home D: the cramp was like everywhere! cramp here, stretch there, then cramp somewhere again. so anyway my parents brought me home then spent alot of time trying to stretch everything out. but thank God i SURVIVED man. i mean, really lah hahaha. my mum said that she's heard of people die from cramps (!!).

so couldnt go for singing practice lorh. oh ya, on 16th december there's a christmas special at bethesda amk!!! song item, skit, dinner... :) norris, gideon, jun han, edwin, you all better go ah.

yep. prepared abit for preach the word and then ta ta, going to reaaally sleep NOW. and i hope i can wake up tomorrow. in case my body get's too cramped up until cannot sit up in the morning.

so means that i must sleep straight and very still HAHA.

imuzi.

with God, all things are possible
