Thought of de Day

The lonely girl*. Mona, Hobart, Tasmania. June 2011.


No matter how popular or busy a person would seem to be, there are moments where he or she would feel lonely. Always be there for the people around you, never think they are too busy to have you with them.

Thought of de Day - Prayer Meeting

今天的祷告会好特别。感谢牧师的决定。

大家在祷告会中从头到末了都站立,除了有数分钟屈膝做认罪悔改祷告。这是我在颂恩堂的第一次。虽然我在此之前也有在其他的祷告会中站立祷告许久,但今晚的祷告会让我有不同的得着。

我认为今晚站立祷告与过往的‘打坐’式祷告有所不同。当我们坐着时,我们是处在一个舒适的身体姿态中。我们往往会因此感到懒散,失去了应有的迫切感。我承认我也常因此而在别人的祷告中发白日梦,突然就放空了一下。祷告会终结后还会伸个懒腰,打瞌睡。难道祷告会就真是这么一回事吗?今晚当每个人都站立时,我可以感觉到大家都额外地‘清醒’。站立的付出及牺牲当然是比坐着多。尤其是站了将近一个钟,还与左右的弟兄姐妹握着手,抓个头都尴尬。为了祷告而付出了特别的代价,这不是我们应有的态度吗?耶稣在祷告前不是千辛万苦去找个安静的地方就是七早八早起身。这些都是为了祷告而做出的牺牲。而我呢却常做着或躺着祷告,多轻松。也因为这样常把祷告看为极轻,哎呀,只是闭著眼跟神聊聊罢了。请问那为祷告而献的祭呢?请问那迫切感去了哪?我本身有必要去反思,自我检讨。

我真的很希望在颂恩堂看见复兴,这我之前有和几位弟兄分享过。我认为一个教会的复兴一定要从祷告开始。而祷告会就是一个最好的平台。

颂恩堂的祷告会能变的更好吗?大家对祷告会不会多了一份激情及迫切感呢?这一切一切都要从对神更加渴望开始。

AGFest

This was about 3 months ago, the Agriculture Festival in Tasmania (some 30 minutes to the east of Launceston). It's a very big annual event apparently, so well received that the opposition leader Tony Abbott would fly from the mainland to visit the festival. Well, I didn't get to meet him though.

Just managed to edit some of the pictures recently, so well, instead of uploading them on Facebook and making the pictures dirt cheap, I might as well upload them right here, somewhere more personal. (I would probably do this more often from now onwards, because I think in a lot of ways Facebook had become a predominant social network, but I still believe in blogging.)

Honestly nothing very interesting. Just treat it as a picture diary. Oh, all these were taken on the 6th of May 2011.

Enjoy.

Thought of de Day

Taken at my home. Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia. Feb 2011.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28
