a very heartwarming story


A minister passing through his church
in the middle of the day,
Decided to pause by the altar
and see who had come to pray.


Just then the back door opened,
a man came down the aisle,
The minister frowned as he saw
the man hadn't shaved in a while.


His shirt was kind a shabby
and his coat was worn and frayed,
The man knelt, he bowed his head,
then rose and walked away.


In the days that followed,
each noon time came this chap,
Each time he knelt just for a moment,
a lunch pail in his lap.


Well, the minister's suspicions grew,
with robbery a main fear,
He decided to stop the man and ask him,
'What are you doing here?'


The old man said, he worked down the road.
lunch was half an hour.
Lunchtime was his prayer time,
for finding strength and power.


'I stay only moments, see,
because the factory is so far away;
As I kneel here talking to the Lord,
This is kinda what I say:


'I JUST CAME AGAIN TO TELL YOU, LORD,
HOW HAPPY I'VE BEEN,
SINCE WE FOUND EACH OTHER'S FRIENDSHIP
AND YOU TOOK AWAY MY SIN.


DON'T KNOW MUCH OF HOW TO PRAY,
BUT I THINK ABOUT YOU EVERYDAY.
SO, JESUS, THIS IS JIM
CHECKING IN TODAY.'


The minister feeling foolish,
told Jim, that was fine.
He told the man he was welcome
to come and pray just anytime.


Time to go, Jim smiled, said 'Thanks.'
He hurried to the door.
The minister knelt at the altar,
he'd never done it before.


His cold heart melted, warmed with love,
and met with Jesus there.
As the tears flowed, in his heart,
he repeated old Jim's prayer:


'I JUST CAME AGAIN TO TELL YOU, LORD,
HOW HAPPY I'VE BEEN,
SINCE WE FOUND EACH OTHER'S FRIENDSHIP
AND YOU TOOK AWAY MY SIN.


I DON'T KNOW MUCH OF HOW TO PRAY, BUT
I THINK ABOUT YOU EVERYDAY.
SO, JESUS, THIS IS ME CHECKING IN TODAY'


Past noon one day, the minister noticed
that old Jim hadn't come.
As more days passed without Jim,
he began to worry some.


At the factory, he asked about him ,
learning he was ill.
The hospital staff was worried,
but he'd given them a thrill.


The week that Jim was with them,
brought changes in the ward.
His smiles, a joy contagious.
Changed people, were his reward.


The head nurse couldn't understand
why Jim was so glad,
when no flowers, calls or cards came,
not a visitor he had.


The minister stayed by his bed,
he voiced the nurse's concern:
No friends came to show they cared.
he had nowhere to turn.


Looking surprised, old Jim spoke
up and with a winsome smile,
'the nurse is wrong, she couldn't know,
that in here all the while


everyday at noon He's here,
a dear friend of mine, you see,
He sits right down, takes my hand,
leans over and says to me:


'I JUST CAME AGAIN TO TELL YOU, JIM,
HOW HAPPY I HAVE BEEN,
SINCE WE FOUND THIS FRIENDSHIP,
AND I TOOK AWAY YOUR SIN.


ALWAYS LOVE TO HEAR YOU PRAY,
I THINK ABOUT YOU EACH DAY,
AND SO JIM, THIS IS JESUS
CHECKING IN TODAY.'


let that be my prayer today.

extreme makeover

i just had a prayer of commitment.

i know i have been such a lousy christian and i've finally come to total repentance. determination.

change.
to be the best son/ guy/ friend/ student/ player/ teammate ... anyone could ask for.


I can do all things through Him who gives me strength.


a really big thank you for all of you who shared your concern. i thank God for all the christian friends out there. God bless :]

thank you God, how you have paved the way for me in such a personal way.


i'm so touched that i cried just now.

my group didnt make it for project's day.

it was a consequence. some of the group members slacked and were complacent, thinking that we will surely make it into the finals and so carried on with their other commitments. i put aside all my commitments and chionged the project's day, warned them. but they didnt cooperate so of course didnt get through. and now, since they had been doing their commitments earlier on, they're have the time and are able to catch up with their work. whereas I have to catch up with tons of stuff that i put aside for this project that never got through.

call me a stupid kid.

what was all that sacrifice for.

fpsp is this sat. and though i have lotsa important stuffs at church, home and ep3 i still make an extra effort to go for each practice session. and yet people still give lame excuses that they are somewhere either slacking or forgot to come or never do. and so we cannot get the work done.

what was all that sacrifice for. call me a stupid kid who wastes time going for all these commitments and don't achieve anything at all even though i put my best.

each training session i give my 100%. i squeeze out every idea i can think of. i dont slouch or sprawl on the table. just get the job done and chiong to wherever im supposed to go after the training.

is fpsp gona be another failure for me.

my accident caused my hrp to get screwed up cos i didnt have time to do it. nevermind, i chionged during the holidays.
then came project's day when i did everything i can. collated like so many surveys by myself. and when my whole group slept or went offline at 10pm i stayed on until 2am. even the day before the semis, dono how come they have the common sense to sleep at 11pm while other people are slaving until 1 plus 2.
records challenge- wasted 20-30 hours building cans and so on, in the end deprived of sleep, work, time, energy. yet in the midst of that whole week i stayed up till 2am to chiong project's day, fpsp and other work. in the end, it became useless cos all the others didnt really help much.

call me a stupid kid.









God, thanks for all these trials. i know that without you i am powerless. thanks for being with me this whole week and helping me to give my best even when my group failed.

dear God, i know that you have a special plan for all these. you don't do these for the sake of hurting me but you have prepared something for me. i might not see it now, but i pray that you will grant me the strength to hold fast to you even in this period of perils.

thank you for being so real to me. help my group members to realise how much more effort they should have put in.

dear God, i commit this week's fpsp into your hands. i promise i'll put in my very best.

i've gotta really start writing my testimony for youth gospel night soon man. but dono why how come my these 2 weeks are so hectic. after this, i promise.

gospel rally's coming up this friday and i hope that i can invite friends to come! and even in school, i sometimes get discouraged as to how under standard i am, especially when comparing with those 'gods' haha.

and it is at times like these i find myself weak. yet i do remember something.

"I can do all things through Him who gives me strength." Phillipians 4:13

tho i preached on this verse, i guess there's alot more to learn from it. like, even by doing daily quiet time isnt enough and I found out how much i have been lacking in prayer. even in school, like a short 5 seconds mumble before food.

and dad was talking about this on the last few sundays.

i guess God missed talking to me. that's why I forgot that He's up there. and sometimes, He wants me to talk to him.

I tried something one night. on my bed i placed an empty pillow opposite me and started talking to it as if there was somebody sitting on it. i read about that method somewhere and that was when i let it all out. all my wishes, thoughts, troubles ... everything. and i knew that Jesus was there listening. and i talked as if i were talking to a friend.

i think i'll do that tonight. i miss talking to God too. that refreshment.

i gotta do reflections this month.

and handle my studies and projects well. council too. these few weeks are exceptionally tough for me, but yeah, with God's help I'll pull through i'm sure.

during bible camp, i want to share one lesson i learnt.

when God says 'take courage,' it's not about being courageous and brave. no it isnt. it is about taking the courage to believe. that you are so sure that God will lead you and provide you with a way. not having a back up plan but 100% complete belief in Him.

that's courage.

still remembered that in "Facing the Giants", they talked about preparing the fields for the rain. rain might not come, but we believe that God will indeed send it. and we prepare the field.

Noah spent 100 years building the ark, believing that God will send rain and cause the world to flood. in that 100 years, he kept on believing. he had courage.

1 month to the youth gospel night. many uncertainties in this one month. many things to accomplish. sometimes i feel like giving up, feel like throwing everything aside cos i'm so fed up with things and people around me. stressed with all the work, commitments and such.

and so i need that courage.

have started reading the biography of joel sonnenburg- the guy who's disfigured cos of a car crash. and yeah i am so encouraged by him. he had courage. courage to believe that God had a purpose for Him.

And so dear God, please give me the courage that in these few times of trouble and hardship, to believe that you'll lead me out of this just as a rainbow appears after a thunder storm.

"When the oceans rise and thunders roar
I will soar with you above the storm
Father you are king over the floods
I will be still know you are God."

Lord please come quickly, let your will be done.

Izumi.
