About yokemay

I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. By God's grace, I was baptized on 20 May 2007 in Bangkok TJC after almost 10 years of searching for the true church. Currently, I'm a PhD candidate at Yuan Ze University in Taiwan and a member of Neili TJC in Taoyuan, Taiwan.

Taking God for Granted

After I completed my Master thesis defense on last Friday, I was very elated until I almost forgot the most important and precious thing in my life–the almighty God. Reflecting upon this, up until the defense, I cried out to God when I needed His guidance and to lift my burdens. Yet when I finally achieved it, I neglected Him while thinking that I alone willed my success. How wrong was I to think that.

Well, thank God I realized this mistake, and immediately, I prayed to thank Him for helping me pull through my thesis defense and with a good grade too. 🙂

Many times I heard or read about how people neglect God after they became successful. This time, I was one of them. 😛

The Mighty Pen

My faith went downhill recently but thank God, I discovered this blog and the TJC e-library’s vast reading materials.

But something amazing happened last night. While I was reading the e-library’s articles, I held a pen and placed it in a writing position. Still feeling rather down, I decided to utter a silent prayer to God. I asked Him what He wants me to do.

As I began to pray, my hand automatically pushed the pen to move forward bit by bit. I was still praying and the pen continued its movement. Finally, it stopped moving because a heart shape, the symbol of LOVE, was formed.

God wants me to love Him and others more. 🙂
