I have to get use to the quietness and emptiness. It's a week of farewell. I sent off Serena on 15/9 and Adeline on 17/9 at KLIA. Edwin went back to Singapore the following day.
As a mother looking back, I am so happy. My five wonderful children moving on with God at the centre of their lives. Amazing! God has been so good. I just cannot stop thanking Him and just want to say, "I love You, God! Thank you."
I just taught the Youth of the church on the topic "Do what we can". Reflecting, I believe this is just what I have been teaching my children all this while. Use what abilities we have & not fret / complain over the ones we do not have and focus upon what we can do & not upon what we can't do. The most important is giving our utmost for the Highest. Do we UNDERSTAND what God expects in regard to our abilities? He has given us His best, so what is our response to His love???
For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what he does not have(2 Corinthians 8:12). Let's not be ashamed of even the smallest ability God has given us. We have to believe He knows what is best for us. We must use our abilities no matter how small. We can ALL do something! Each one will have to give an account of himself to God one day. Will He be able to tell us 'Well done, good and faithful servant!' Or 'You wicked, lazy servant!'.
To my dear children and Youth, let us do everything as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Love you and God bless all of you!

Who am I? That the Lord of all the earth, would care to know my name, would care to feel my hurt.
Who am I? That the bright and morning star, would choose to light the way, for my ever wandering heart.
Who am I? That the eyes that see my sin would look on me with love and watch me rise again.
Who am I? That the voice that calmed the sea, would call out through the rain, and calm the storm in me.
Not because of who I am, but because of what you've done.
Not because of what I've done, but because of who you are.
I am a flower quickly fading, here today and gone tomorrow,
A wave tossed in the ocean, a vapor in the wind.
Still you hear me when I'm calling, Lord, you catch me when I'm falling,
And you've told me who I am. I am yours.
I love this song. I find my worth in knowing that I belong to God. My greatest comfort is knowing that He loves me.
A letter to Whom I belong.
My dearest God,
When I am in the midst of the multitude, I am just like a grain of sand on the sea shore. I am just another person, another number. I thank you God for knowing me by name. You make me so special.
When loved ones, friends, colleagues even strangers hurt me leaving my heart sometimes shattered … Thank you God for you feel my hurt. I surrender these hurts to you. I just want to be in your embrace, where you are my comforter, my refuge. I have great comfort in knowing that You love me.
When I am lost and confused by the concerns of life – Thank you God for being my Light. Hold me by my hands and lead me through this life. Guard my heart from the distractions of this world that I may not wander from You. Be my guide, my teacher, my counselor.
I confess I have grieved you in so many ways, falling so short of your glory. I cannot hide anything from you. Thank you God for even as your eyes see my sin, you would still look on me with love and help me and watch me rise again.
I confess You are the Sovereign Lord and I enthrone You in my heart. When anxieties fill my heart, may You - the voice that calmed the sea, call out through the rain, and calm the storm in me.
All these are possible because of what you've done and because of who you are. You have died on the cross, that your blood may wash away my sins. And You are my Lord, my God, my Savior.
I am a flower quickly fading, here today and gone tomorrow, a wave tossed in the ocean, a vapor in the wind. Still you hear me when I'm calling, Lord, you catch me when I'm falling, And you've told me who I am.
I AM YOURS….. so comforting and assuring. In You will I trust. Give me faith that I may please You. Give me obedience to obey Your commands and precepts. Give me believe that I may always wait upon You with great expectations of all Your promises which are good for me. I call out to you - My Lord, my God.
Thank you, my Lord.
I LOVE YOU.
