Anyway... I probably won't need it anymore after this week, cos my BBB is coming! BLACKBERRYBOLD. HAHAHA... Finally. And I am praying for a good set. I have been wavering about my decision to buy the BBB cos some of the staff experienced very sian probs with it. But I decided... JUST DO IT!
Last week, it was kind of a tough one for me. But as I blogged in my earlier post, I am making a conscious effort to live out the 4th dimension. And I am beginning to see little miracles blossoming here and there. God is amazing! God's word is amazing!!!
ONE. I was going for my last CG meeting with W351. We would be exchanging our last presents for the Angel & Mortal game. And Bernice had to come up with a difficult theme- Angel. And I only have 1.5hr to shop at Parkway on Sat morning before CG...
I just cannot find anything related to 'angel'. Then I came to Diva. I was on the verge of just getting some accessories for my mortal - Deb Lee and I could imagine saying to her:"Wow, you look angelic wearing THIS!"
As I stepped into the shop, I just thought of praying and asking God to show me an angel in the shop! "God, please show me an angel hanging on a chain or some earring...."
I combed through 9/10 of the shop... NOTHING 'angel'! Argh...
SUDDENLY... suddenly I saw a small silver chain... with the words '90% Angel' at a corner!!!
I immediately bought that necklace!
TWO. I offered my tuition services to a guy who used to come for service and joined my CG for awhile. He stopped attending for months already.
Anyway, he was having E Maths o levels paper 2 tomorrow @ 8am. I offered to teach him tonight in the office from 9-11pm provided he was willing to travel to my office.
He told me he felt bad cos he doesnt go to church. I said nevermind!!!
When he walked into the office with me, I prayed "God touch him somehow during this tuition!"
After the super crash course, he smsed me "Jerb, Sunday service as usual same time? Please book 2 seats for me."
Do you believe in miracles???

Because of your unfailing love, I can enter your house; with deepest awe I will worship at your Temple. - Ps 5:7
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will p-u-r-s-u-e me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the LORD forever. - Ps 23:6
Through each day the LORD pours his unfailing love upon me, and through each night I sing His songs, praying to God who gives me life. - Ps 42:8
But as for me, I will sing about your power. I will shout with joy each morning because of your unfailing love. For you have been my refuge, a place of safety in the day of distress. -Ps 59:16
Your unfailing love is better to me than life itself; how I praise you! Ps 63:3
O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive, so full of unfailing love for all who ask your aid. - Ps 86:5

Here's the science research in video format.
Wow! Isn't it awesome?
I was inspired by the Word, I went back to a book i had stopped reading - Ps Cho's 4th Dimension. I really felt the faith and conviction building up in me to live out God's Word and seeing the miracles come!
In the book, Ps Cho talked about us
THINKING -- BELIEVING -- DREAMING -- CONFESSING .
And of course lifting up all these to God in prayer. I am making a diligent, conscious effort starting this week, to live out the 4th DIMENSION, God-kind of life! I don't want to miss out on the best God has reserved for me!
ALL THE WAY JERB!!!

The CGL in me made me pick it up in the end. Hee. Over the phone, I thought I heard sobbings. Huh? Yongle crying??
Le: Jerb pls pray for my friend... pls...
Me: Le... what happened?
Le: My very good friend... He just passed away....
Me: Huh? ... Le you ok? What happened?
Le: He was riding on a bike and a lorry hit him.
Le:... He asked me out just now but I turned him down cos I was working...
Le: Why must it be him?
I did not asked him if his friend was a christian. I did not ask where his friend was going. I did not say, ' See, I told you riding a bike was dangerous!' (I always tell him that, cos he just got his bike license and couldnt wait to buy a bike)
I just kept quiet and listened to him talk.
At the end of the phone call, I was shocked to remember Le had to take his 'O' level practical exam the next day. I offered to pray for him... and his friend.
Honestly, I didn't know how to pray for a friend who probably was not saved? It was difficult. The words to use. He probably wun be going to H'ven if he wasnt saved...
SALVATION today is precious. No wonder the Bible says do not boast about tomorrow...
Today, I found out coincidentally from a fellow staff, that Le's friend, McRon was a backslider. He was going to try out another CG that might be more suitable... But before he could do that, he passed on. Don't you think that's v v sad?
Another incident that made me feel that lives are precious... and it's really urgent and important for the lost to know Jesus today...
Another thing I learnt. I really appreciated Le calling me when he encountered a trial. He had been coming to church, willing to be taught, willing to change... but he also has a bad past. And bad habits are kind of hard to get rid of. But sometimes for people like him, we really got to give them time. He wants to change, he loves God.
He almost gave up once when I scolded him for oversleeping. But.. afterall this boy really wants to change and come back to God! So, from then on, I repented and decided I should give him special grace cos I think that's what Jesus would do. I don't think the tax collectors and prostitutes changed overnight!
Just now, Le called me while he was at the funeral. He sounded much better. He updated me that he felt confident for his prac. He also told me he will be going for the funeral everyday from tonight till Sunday's cremation. He also told me he will come for CG first b4 going down to the funeral. :) (I didn't ask nor did I expect him to!) He then told that he can't make it for Sunday service though cos of the cremation... And I said, 'Of cos! Go ahead ...' :)))
