John 15:5
[I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.]

This is the bible verse that we need to remember for the 1st chapter of “Experiencing GOD”. Indeed I am in the midst of experiencing GOD in Puchong, a place that is unfamiliar to me.

The main content of this course is to let us truly know how GOD works in our life and to know what GOD wants us to do. There are 7 steps that describe our relationship with GOD.

Reality 1: God is always at work around you.

Reality 2: God pursues a continuing love relationship with you that is real and personal.

Reality 3: God invites you to become involved with Him in His work.

Reality 4: God speaks by the Holy Spirit through the Bible, prayer, circumstances, and the church to reveal Himself, His purposes, and His ways.

Reality 5: God's invitation for you to work with Him always leads you to a crisis of belief that requires faith and action.

Reality 6: You must make major adjustments in your life to join God in what He is doing.

Reality 7: You come to know God by experience as you obey Him and He accomplishes His work through you.

It’s a day-by-day devotional material. I had gone through the 1st week and found that this book serves as a reminder, to refresh how did/do I serve GOD, what I may/would have done that is/are not pleasing to GOD. It’s not difficult to have devotion everyday but it seems to be not easy to work them out. Feel like being an empty vessel. It’s even harder to have good testimonial and let others see the image of Jesus in us.

My life here in Puchong is considered relaxing. Although I have no much work to do, I do feel tired. I have one voice in my heart telling me that I should not make this as an excuse for not joining cg /bible study/ prayer meeting. In Permai Methodist Church, we can hardly find twenties youngsters. But, I can feel the strong faith and confidence in brothers and sisters. A very different church…

Here, there are two Sunday services continuously. “shi feng ren yuan” stay back to attend both services. There is breakfast fellowship for the 1st service while lunch fellowship for 2nd service. I can’t imagine the tiredness to get ready cutleries for so many people. Give thank to GOD for the increment of church members from year to year.

Most of the brothers and sisters will be in church till late evening as there are number of classes to attend straight away after lunch fellowship. I don’t hear murmur, I don’t feel the unhappiness. What I observe, they will “automatically” sign up for any new course available. They appreciate the opportunity to learn the word of GOD.

This is the spirit that I should learn and apply to the fullest in my life too. I find difficulties to balance improving myself spiritually and at the same time assisting friends around me to grow spiritually. I am not here to say that I have grown spiritually or I am a holy Christian. Word of GOD is unlimited but human’s knowledge is limited. I am not able to understand thoroughly the teaching of bible, but I pray, hoping that as the children of HIM, I can override my own potential with GOD’s guidance because our only GOD has the only power to empower anything.

I am always afraid of trying something new or something out of my ability. I am still holding firmly to my own principles. Em…..Pray for that.

如果沒有這次遠遊, 遲鈍的我也不會知道,一向熱心打點照顧我們子女無微不至的父母,退休十幾年的老爸,竟衰老得如此快速。我們五姊妹只湊足了三個,決定陪爸媽去新加坡玩。






一趟旅行帶給了我許多感觸,也讓再度離開家、身在火車上的我不禁滴下眼淚....或許是自己太多愁善感, 也或許擔心自己的父母狀況,只是自己一直沒發覺,才驚覺原來老爸老媽也變老了,變脆弱了,不再是以前那「強壯的臂膀」、「溫暖的避風港」,原來一直幫我扛著頭上那片天的巨人, 人也會變老....

Appreciate and treasure the time with family. Spend more time at home rather than running out from home for entertainment outside. We always feel that family doesn’t understand our need, we tend to rely on materialism to fulfill self-satisfaction. Parents will never abandon us when we need them. Step out and talk with them.

I am sure u will find wonders.

I have been reading this email for several times. It still "knocks" my heart each time. When I ponder deeply, I have always vented my temper towards my family. I have no patience, no tolerance, no consideration…but i believe that it is never too late to turn back.

I used to claim that I never travel to other places out of Sarawak, always fall into swirl of jealousy whenever I heard my friends telling their travel plan. Whenever there is school holiday, I am always the only few who stay at home for the whole holiday, not going anywhere, not taking any astonishing photos, not buying any hard-to-get souvenir….complaining in heart…sometimes, I feel that I want to go out from home to take a deep fresh breath.I just know to be a good girl, I shouldn’t complain so much.

GOD has brought me to this family and with faith, I know HE has HIS plan. HE never fails to hold my hands through hard-shells. At the age of twenties, I begin my step-by-step path with GOD. It’s a wonderful journey with companion.

Now, I know that I have changed. No more complaint and grumble towards family. GOD knows what’s the best for me, that’s what my mum told me since I was small. I even spend more time at home although I have freedom to go out more frequently. The change is unexpected, but GOD is the one who changes me.

Thank GOD that I stayed at home during school holiday. Helping out with house-chores, hearing voice of family…all these are great helper to building up close relationship with family. If not, I don’t even know how to do house-chores (although in some days I really lazy to work out), don’t know how to cook (although my dishes taste normal)…..

Thank GOD for everything….
