My 5’C’s Singapore Dream

From bookmark which i found in a book in my jc  library:

  • I will reliquish control over my own life and future.
  • I will ask God to help me live out the true Cs of the real Singapore Dream:
    • CHRIST That I will love Jesus above all else.
    • CALLING That I will decisively answer the call of God for my life.
    • CHARACTER That I will hate sin with a holy hatred and choose to fear God and please Him in thought, word and deed.
    • COMPASSION That I will serve God with passion, perseverance and purity.
    • COURAGE That I will dare to dream, and be filled with faith and a pioneering spirit to do what God directs, and to go where God leads.
    • COMPETENCE That I will have a godly imagination, skilful hands and a sensitive spirit to discern the ways of the Lord in my generation.

Beautitudes for Leaders

Blessed are the leaders who have not sought the high place, but who have been drafted into service because of their ability and willingness to serve.

Blessed are the leaders who know where they are going, why they are going, and how to get there.

Blessed are the leaders who know no discouragement, who present no alibis.

Blessed are the leaders who know how to lead without being dictatorial; true leaders are humble.

Blessed are the leaders who seek the best for they those they serve.

Blessed are the leaders who lead for the good of the most concerned, and not for the personal gratification of their own ideas.

Blessed are the leaders who develop leaders while leading.

Blessed are the leadres who march with the group, interpret correctly the signs of the pathways that lead to success.

Blessed are the leaders who have their heads in the clouds but their feet on the ground.

Blessed are the leaders who consider leadership an opportunity for service.

Too late to write anything else. gotta stop here.

MAJESTY by Delirious?

Here I am humbled by your Majesty
Covered by your grace so free
Here I am, knowing I’m a sinful man
Covered by the blood of the Lamb

Now I’ve found the greatest love of all is mine
Since you laid down your life
The greatest sacrifice

Majesty, Majesty
Your grace has found me just as I am
Empty handed, but alive in your hands
Majesty, Majesty
Forever I am changed by your love
In the presence of your Majesty

Here I am humbled by the love that you give
Forgiven so that I can forgive
Here I stand, knowing that I’m your desire
Sanctified by glory and fire

Now I’ve found the greatest love of all is mine
Since you laid down your life
The greatest sacrifice

faith questions

When serving in a ministry becomes burdensome, does it mean that it’s not the right one?

Whatever we do, we need to have a purpose in doing it – it’s human nature. There must be a force or motivation that drives you to do what you’re doing – it could be a passion/ interest for that field, to fulfill the wishes of someone dear to you, out of obligation, or even a craving for money/ fame. My driving factor to go to work everdyday is not so much the nature of the job, but the friends made & the working environment (i suppose). A lot of times, it’s the people/ friends/ environment that drives me, as in the case of staying on in sngs (sec) & njc (after 1st 3 mths).

I was just so listless, distracted & full of conflicting doubts during RCIA session. Yes, today i’m particularly tired. But i know it’s not just cos of today, it’s accumulated. There’s no role for me to play; i’m not indispensable; who am i going for? (yes, ideally speaking, it should be God, but c’mon, most people are there for a close friend/ spouse/ bf or gf – that IS their motivating factor.) I mean, the people there are like a completely diff wavelength from me – middle-aged career people & me, a student? like HUH? nothing much to talk abt! Not to mention how unprepared i am, my faith is not strong, and i couldn’t even AGREE with what was taught today! And now we are only on the basic tenets! Really…what’s the point…

why should i stay on? the only answer is obligation. but i didn’t take any oath or pledge nor is there a black-and-white statement that i’ve signed. So am i still obliged to stay on unhappily for the next 7-8mths?  Sounds like real torture.

When serving in a ministry becomes burdensome, it must mean it is NOT the right one.

 

 

Being a straightforward person, i don’t like things to be said in a round-about manner. Hate to have to discern this & that. (And simply dislike when some people speak in coded language & i’ve to keep asking & digging further to get the meaning out in simple layman english.) In other words, I HATE guessing games. or things that require risk-taking. Simply because most of the time, they end up in a mess. Just like this ministry thing. Can’t He tell me plainly and simply abt what min i’ve to join? to spare me & those around me (affects a few other individuals too) all the trouble.

 

And all the LOST SLEEP.

 

Sigh…

Lead me, Lord

Lead me Lord, lead me by the hand
And make me face the rising sun
Comfort me through all the pain
That life may bring
There’s no other hope
That I can lean upon
Lead me Lord
Lead me all my life
Walk by me, walk by me across
The lonely road of everyday
Take my arms and let your hand
Show me the way
Show the way to live inside your heart
Lead me Lord, all my life
Refrain:
You are my light
You’re the lamp upon my feet
All the time my Lord
I need You there
You are my light
I (just) cannot live alone
Let me stay
By Your guiding love
All through my life
Lead me Lord
Lead me Lord
Even though at times
I’d rather go alone my way
Help me take the right direction
Take Your road
Lead me Lord
And never leave my side
All my days
All my life
Refrain:
You are my light
You’re the lamp upon my feet
All the time my Lord
I need You there
You are my light
I (just) cannot live alone
Let me stay
By Your guiding love
All through my life
All through my days
Lead me, O Lord
Lead me Lord
wonderful song sung in church camps.
