Eyes falling upon the starlight
Thoughts like billows
Swelling in reflection
Wisping in contemplation
How could I have once been so foolish?
I was lost in the world
Away from home
Drawn to the luminosity
Unanchored upon the symphony of the city
Like a bee,
drawn to the radiance
Enticed by the fields
The efflorescence of temptation
To relieve the pain
How could I have been so blind?
So blind… Continue reading
These verses in Luke 10 have left a deep impression in me.
Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs among wolves.” (Luke 10:2-3)
Harvest is referring to non-believers. Laborers are referring to believers sent out to preach to the non-believers. Sending you out as lambs among wolves means that it is not going to be easy when you go out to preach. There will be persecutions and all will not be smooth sailing. This made me think of my challenges in preaching. Continue reading
Thank God – lately, an increased amount of people have asked me for advice on how to improve their piano playing for church, and also complimented on my own playing. Being somewhat inspired, I will proceed to share with you what I shared with them.
As neither the accomplished penman nor amongst the eloquent, I am not a man of words through speech nor literacy. However, by the grace of God, I am able to share His great loving grace through the art of music – as an accompanist.
People often mistake ‘accompanist’ with ‘pianist’. Having been equipped with the skills of music from young, it took me a fair few years to discern the difference: a pianist is one who performs, an accompanist is one who accompanies the hymnal. Continue reading
A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. (Prov 17:17)
We’ve all heard the teachings regarding love, in that we should show love to one another, to love our neighbours as ourselves and to treat others how we want to be treated. But what better way to do this by being a friend?
Recently, I noticed a certain brother showing a simple act of kindness. He did so by noticing another brother who was sitting by himself with a glum expression. Brother A walked over, smiled at brother B, asked him how his day was, and then began to engage in conversation. This simple act of kindness brought the spirits of brother B up and after a while, brother B had the brightest smile on his face. Continue reading
I really thank and praise the Lord that I am here today to share the miracles and wonders He has shown through me.
I used to feel very aimless because there were constant life questions that always came up empty and unanswered. I would find myself relating well to the cliché: a lost lamb walking in the shadow of darkness.
No matter what new skill or interest I found to fill the void, the momentary satisfaction of accomplishment was never enough. For years I searched for more. Continue reading
