Random Acts of Kindness

Well, since I've gotten requests to update my blog like 8 months Just to leave you something to think about...the other day as I was entering my office building from the carpark, someone who came through the door from the other side held it open for me. And I think that really made my day.
Think about it, a random act of kindness. I think it can go really far. Imagine this, I'm at the receiving end of the act and there is this warm tingling feeling inside of me. What more if you are the one doing the act. Picture the other person's face. Wouldn't it leave you with a pleasant feeling yourself? So I'd say, go out today and do a random act of kindness to a stranger! Well, if you really have got no idea what to do, let me give you a list...
  1. Send someone a hand written note of thanks.
  2. Make a card at home and send it to a friend for no reason.
  3. Put some coins in someone else’s parking meter.
  4. Buy a coffee for your colleague
  5. Walk your friend’s dog.
  6. Give a compliment about your waiter / waitress to his / her manager.
  7. Send someone a small gift anonymously.
  8. Stop and help someone replace their flat tire.
  9. Let someone jump the queue at the bank.
  10. Pay for the drinks on the next table at a cafe.
  11. Treat a friend to the movies for no reason.
  12. Give a huge tip to someone when they least expect it.
  13. Hold the door open for someone.
  14. Give up your seat for someone, not just an elderly person.
  15. Write notes of appreciation at least once a week.
  16. Talk to a homeless person and have a “normal” conversation.
  17. Pick up some rubbish in the road which would otherwise be lying around.
  18. Compliment a work colleague for their excellence.
  19. Recommend a competitor to a potential client.
  20. Give another driver your parking spot.
  21. Give a piece of fruit to a delivery person.
  22. Help an elderly neighbour carry the rubbish out.
  23. Tell all your family members how much your appreciate them.
  24. Leave a copy of an interesting book on a train / bus.
  25. Buy an inspirational book for a friend.
  26. Send a thank you note to a person who has helped you in the past.
  27. Smile a lot.

What's the point of me fasting? Am I fasting for the sake of showing others that I am following the 40 days fast and prayer? Or am I fasting because I really, really wanna see revival coming to Malaysia and sweep us all off our feet? Today, as I was just praying on the prayer items that is in the 40 days fast and prayer booklet, I asked myself this question. What is the point of me fasting? And once again I'm reminded that I fast and pray because I really believe that through prayer, God will move. God can change this nation. And anyway, true fasting is not about an outwardly appearance, it is about consecrating yourself to God. Am I doing that? Are you?

I say on Sunday how much I want revival
But then my Monday, I can't even find my Bible
Where's the power
The power of the cross in my life
I'm sick of playing the game of religion
I'm tired of losing my reason for living
Where's the power
The power of the cross in my life
I'm not content just to walk through my life
Giving into the lies
Walking in compromises now
We cry out as a generation that was lost
But now is found in the power of the cross
We believe in You
We believe in the power of Your Word and its truth
We believe in You
So we lay down our cause
That our cross might be found in You
I'm not satisfied doing it my own way
I'm not satisfied to do church and walk away
I'm not satisfied, there's no love in my life but You
I'm not satisfied living in yesterday's hour
I'm not satisfied to have the form, but not the power
I'm not satisfied, Oh Lord I am crucified in You
Do we want to be Christians like this? Someone who wants revival on Sunday but forgets where he/she puts his Bible on Monday? Let's not play this game of religion anymore. Let's not walk in compromise anymore. Let's lay down our cause for God. Let's not only desire revival but make it happen.

It Isn't Gonna Be Easy

When I was just waiting upon God the other day, He told me that doing my Masters degree is not going to be easy. But He will be there with me, to give me strength and the courage to go on. Yesterday what He said became all the more real when I went into my Research Methodology class. The lecturer was telling us that doing postgraduate studies, it is common that we get stuck while doing our researchs. He said that it is a test of your strength and character. I fully agree with him. But while he says that pushing us to the edge will make us depend on ourselves more and make us perform better, I beg to differ. Why, you ask? Because I have Christ Jesus. While others might struggle alone and learn how to depend on themselves more, I have God to depend on.
In times like those, I have full confidence that I can turn to Jesus and He'll be there for me. When the lecturer was describing what the process of doing Masters like, he said that it is the journey that is truly what you're after, it's the experience of doing the research that is the Masters, not some thesis at the end. You may write a really good thesis but you might not get anything out of the journey. I just felt like God was telling me He is going to break me and mold me again. Through this journey, He is going to build my character. And yes God, I trust that You will take me through it.

I'm Bored!

Ok, right now I'm sitting in an office somewhere in the Parliament Building. And I have so much free time that I can blog! =) And what are my colleagues around me doing? Watching a movie, youtube and goodness knows what...Hmmm...just goes to show how rajin we Malaysians are...Over and out!

Hi all, right now, I'm kinda bumming (hence the personal message: Bummer's Inc. on my MSN...=)). Actually, what I wanted to say is that I'm really inspired by the pastors and full time workers that I had a meeting with just a while ago. It's really impressive what they are willing to do just to get children to be involved in prayer, etc. At first, I was having doubts whether or not to be in the planning committee for a children conference. But going for one of their meetings today, it really inspired me to press on and not give up on the children.
Yeah, I know sometimes it's hard to press on; especially when you lose sight of the vision. Another thing that inspired me today was when I worship led for Sunday school today, I got the children to just sit down and be still and to listen out for the voice of God. And guess what? A few of them actually heard from God! It's not at all surprising, but it is really inspirational. What God spoke to them may be something simple like "I love you", but it made a difference to the child's life. And when I was praying for them, what God told me was that He has given them each talents that they can use to serve Him. Who are we to underestimate the children if God look so highly upon them? So let us all believe that the children today are more than ready to fight the battle for God.

Well, now that I've completely finished off my last assignment and group project, I think it's safe to say that I've officially completed my course. Now that I've quite some free time, I have decided to start blogging more regularly again. =) Like the title of the post says, it's random! Actually, what I intended to blog about today was...
The things that I would like to do before I die:
  1. Bungee jumping!
  2. Visit every state in Malaysia
  3. Learn diving
  4. Open my own restaurant
  5. Get married and have kids
That's all I can think about right now...It's not much, but yeah, that's what I wanna do!
