Last Friday @ CG, I was prompted to share that in the second half of 2017, God wants us to FORGET our past rewards and victories. When we look to what is ahead and not at the past successes, there is fresh and sufficient grace to meet our daily needs! Let's not live and place our trust in past grace and blessings! ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜ข
.
Tonight at Leaders' Meeting, the same verses that was shared by Pastor Daniel resonates within me again. What a blessed reminder! Confirming and affirming what is ahead for the second half of the year ๐Ÿ’ฅ

"FORGET the former things; DO NOT DWELL ON THE PAST. See, I am doing a NEW THING! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." - Isaiah 43:18-19 NIV ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒŠ
.
"Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done." - CS Lewis
.
God can only do a NEW thing if you would just let go of the OLD ๐ŸŒ… ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Loving how my P1 kiddos put in their best effort to do up a #YayoiKusama inspired artpiece after learning about her. Proud moment as their teacher. P/S: They asked me if she is a dinosaur when they found out she's 88 years old and not married ๐Ÿ˜ซ#Ilovemyjobxx

Pastor Joseph Prince // Sermon Excerpt
.
"When I was 17, I was drafted into national service like all the other teenage boys in my country. One day, as part of my training in the navy, I found myself on a boat in choppy waters. Less than half an hour into the journey, you could see all the rookies looking unwell and feeling nauseous. Eventually, an officer on board told us, "Don't look at the choppy waters around you. Look far away where the horizon is and you will feel better." We took his advice and certainly felt better โ›ด๐Ÿšข๐Ÿšค๐Ÿ›ณ
.
Like the horizon, God's love for you is fixed and constant. ๐Ÿ’—On the other hand, our love for God is like the waves, variable and unpredictable. ๐ŸŒŠ Some days, itโ€™s high, and on other days, itโ€™s low
.
Beloved, if you believe your security depends on your love for God, you will always feel you are on shaky and unstable ground. But if you know and believe your security is based on Godโ€™s constant, unfailing love for you, youโ€™ll become bold and unshakable. So focus on Godโ€™s love for you today! Keep looking to His steadfast, unchanging love no matter what is happening in your life!" #ChristtheSolidRock

"How's your cough?" @onegrainofsand asked me today ๐Ÿค”

I totally didn't realise I have been completely healed of my 3.5 years "teacher's cough" since coming back from Israel ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ2 months ago! We all need friends like that. To remind us of God's goodness & faithfulness in our lives ๐Ÿ’—
.
I first met @onegrainofsand in 2014. We were both serving noobs. She was producing for the first time at GenRev Camp & I had kena arrowed to emcee for the first time too. We have been stuck (unwillingly) together ever since doing the same thing every camp but witnessing as we each grew in giftings and serving capacities ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Look forward to serving alongside you this coming camp though I may not be emceeing this time round hehe ๐Ÿ˜œ

Pardon the awkward pose, Dora hair & smile from a few years ago. The focus is on the tree behind me ๐Ÿ˜ฉ Anw last Sunday's sermon on Abraham & Lot, got me thinking A LOT ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ about what was Abraham's secret to possessing such bravery to fight against the Kings of Mesopotamia when he was clearly outnumbered ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
.
I was led to find out where he dwelled ๐Ÿ  before he heard the news of Lot's capture. "A fugitive came and reported to Abram the Hebrew. Abram was living at the OAKS of MAMRE the Amorite, brother of Eshcol and Aner." - Genesis 14:13
.
๐ŸŒณ OAKS represents RIGHTEOUSNESS "They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendour." - Isaiah 61:3
๐Ÿ“MAMRE means STRENGTH
.
Then I realised that Abram had come from a place of righteousness & strength. He possessed such courage because โ€œOnly in the LORD, it shall be said of me, are RIGHTEOUSNESS and STRENGTH to him shall come and be ashamed all who were incensed against him." - Isaiah 45:23
.
His total dependency & identity was found in Christ. Just as Abram who looked to the Lord as His source of victory & promises of blessings, I pray we come to a place of such surrender too. Let it be said of us that our righteousness & strength comes from God as we wait upon Him to bring to past His promises in our lives. Amen! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ #totaldependence #eyesonYou
