Psalm 121 (MSG)

A Pilgrim Song

I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from mountains?
No, my strength comes from God,
who made heaven, and earth, and mountains.

He won't let you stumble,
your Guardian God won't fall asleep.
Not on your life! Israel's
Guardian will never doze or sleep.

God's your Guardian,
right at your side to protect you-
Shielding you from sunstroke,
sheltering you from moonstroke.

God guards you from every evil,
he guards your very life.
He guards you when you leave and when you return,
he guards you now, he guards you always.

Thank you for being my strength and always there.
Always faithful. Never failing.

Jesus Will Still Be There
Things change
Plans fail
You look for love on a grander scale
Storms rise
Hopes fade
And you place your bets on another day
When the going gets tough
When the ride's too rough
When you're just not sure enough

Jesus will still be there
His love will never change
Sure as a steady rain
Jesus will still be there
When no one else is true
He'll still be loving you
When it looks like you've lost it all
And you haven't got a prayer
Jesus will still be there
Time flies
Hearts turn
A little bit wiser from lessons learned
But sometimes
Weakness wins
And you lose your foothold once again
When the going gets tough
When the ride's too rough
When you're just not sure enough...
When it looks like you've lost it all
And you haven't got a prayer
Jesus will still be there

Well, what can i say? it's finally over? or its just the beginning? hahah..

anyway, the start of the year was awesome! Why?

Sometime back, when i just made a really tough decision to move on to Minops,
i had some questions and uncertainties in my mind.. of cuz, with all the emotional attachment and "bu she de" feelings and all~ :'(

So all i could do was to ask God to lead me and reveal to me on how He can use me and how can I serve Him here and impact lives too~

God is faithful and i guess He showed me bit by bit and guided me so much through the series of events started in End Jan..

Firstly, Love Me-ter

I thank God to be able to be part of this production as it grew me in many many ways..
Also, through this ESS, we're able to invite sec one Deyians through a job lobang
to Love Me-ter and guess what? They cross the line of Faith and were touched by God!! God is good!

Last but not the least, Dance Competitions.

Okay.. this is the event that has the most weight-age.

It all started in a Ydance DMM @ Jiali's house, when she asked whether any of us wanted to participate in Dance Fiesta 2011 cuz it was a small comp and good opp for exp!
Along the way, Jacq also requested us to join Stage Without Borders.
So after discussing, everyone agreed that the Bboy/Popping grp is the most ready.
Then i had a discussion with them after a Ydance meet and asked for their commitment for whoever is interested~and there you have it..
Justin, Guowei, Desmond, JianHao, Joshua, Nigel, LieHao and myself
8 noob hunks with limited dance techniques and has no exp in comps or whatsoever, joining the comps in the name of Hope Church/Ydance.

So along the way, many of us had some tough times juggling with our responsibilities-pastoral ministries, sch projs, etc..
and even our dear friend Nigel had to be out of this comp due to some commitment issues...

However, things get tough along the way..haha
As we prepared for the Prelims, we gave all we had and throw out whatever good ideas we all had to put up a good show..
we just wanted to had fun n exp what a comp felt like..
so we met EVERYDAY 6pm for the week! HAHA!
I can still rmb us overnighting at the airport to finish our choreo!

Our prelims piece wasnt that clean/fantastic but satisfyable to us..
GOd even helped us with the timing and sync of certain steps as well! HAHA!
And guess what? We got through to the semi-finals! God is good!!

ANd so, we prac doubly hard, meeting EVERYDAY @ 6 in the comp week!
We gave all we had, throwing our best moves and ideas for it!
Just like giving God our 2 copper coin and that 5 loaves and 2 fishes :)
We concluded that it was God's grace that brought us through and decided to treat the semi-finals as our FINALS! haha!

Then came the semi-finals @ St James. There were lots of good competitors such as, Flair Bros, Emerge Crew, Fantastic Forze Crew, etc... but we didn't want to let them hinder our dance cuz ultimately, we didn't join this to win..

But guess what? We made it to the FINALS!! God is good!!
It was really God's grace that brought us through again!

We worked hard and brought out our best to the FINALS.
We didn't win though but thats okay cuz our objectives were met :)

But then came the interesting thing, when we were waiting for our Dance Fiesta Finals to be ready, Guowei wanted to go Vivo to take a bite and so we went with him.
Just outside St.James, we saw a group of people giving out flyers and we took it.
We were surprise to see that it was another (Step Upward) Dance Competition held @ Hougang Sec, organized by Punggol South CC! Registration fee $50, Prize money $500!
It definitely seemed like a lower level comp than DF.
So Desmond inquired about the comp and we found out that there were only 3 crews joining-which means we can definitely win a prize! And the Reg fee cut down to $25! Why would we give such a good opp a miss?
So right after hearing the results of DF, we grab some food and left for Hougang straight! (though some of us were tired and didn't really felt like dancing alrdy...prob cuz no motivation and knowing there's still SWB the next day haha)

The comp was in a school hall in Hougang Sec.. they made it look like some sorta club, with loud music and lotsa lightings!
They even have drinks and snacks outside haha..FREE!
We arrived kinda late and yet they still waited for us.. i guess they really need people to join haha.
The interesting thing also is that we saw Funk It Up there!
I realised that they registered earlier already and we just came on the spot!
It's interesting to see a DF finalist there as well as we didn't expect any strong competitors there!
Like out of so many..............why...a DF finalist? and moreover, at hougang??!!! haha...
i can't think of any reason to figure that out..

We all gave our best for the comp and guess what.......?

We won 1st prize!!! a Trophy and $500!! God is good!!
(and we didnt even need to pay for reg fee!)
I was thinking that Funk It Up's gonna hate us cuz they could have gotten first place if we didnt turn up :p
But we still encouraged each other after everything!
As we were about to leave, there's was an open cypher!
We all just got out in the circle and did our thing!
Not only that, they also had a dance battle!
So we had a chance to had a friendly battle against some of the other competitors!
We all really had fun and it was a good exp and exposure for us all!

After the whole day of dance event, I was really amazed by how God actually gave us that opp to meet those people outside St.James. It was so...divine. God didnt just honour our hardwork with that $500, He also gave us an opp to battle and cypher tgt thru that event!!
I'm still awed by that as well!
It's like going to a jam with your crew and cyphering and battling and doing what we love tgt..moreover, representing Ydance and the BIG J!

Then the next day(SUNDAY), we had SWB performance @ Wisma Atria.

Then again, we saw Fantastic Forze crew and some other DF peeps.. and had that same feeling we had at Hougang Sec.
But then we were told that this isn't a competiton no more but a performance.. haha!
it was good still, cuz we represent in the name of Hope Church and even had a media coverage through an interview! haha..

So after thinking back, if we didn't go for Step Upward Comp, we wouldn't have that $500 and all... of cuz its not all for the money but i tot that it was good that we win something so as to have a credibility in the dance scene, and ppl knowing that we are from Hope! Would be easier to share the love of dancing in a different point of view and about Jesus' love!

In conclusion, this whole period was an adventure....a great one.
Saw how God use me and gave me opp to serve Him thru this specialized ministry.
I did the best i could.. but I don't know how to describe in details...
But i know that God is God and we are not.. His ways are surely higher than ours..
It was evident how He lead us through the whole dance thingy since Day 1!
We really wanna do our best to honour and glorify God to the best we can through these competitions! And i guess, God use us and open doors for us when He closes one.
I'm so thankful as well cuz this also bonded the r/s btwn us soooo much!
We saw how each other struggle, grow in discipline, priority management, character moulding, etc..
I can't help but to thank God how HE did it and moved in ways that i can't see/imagine..
(Awed again......>.<)
*Exhales~~~* haha... there's just so much to think and thank God..

M looking forward to our retreat+farewell tgt w the bros!
its gonna be an awesome time!! really awesome i guarantee!
It's the journey that makes the arrival of a destination or the end memorable :) *Salutes*
ODC!! Woots!

God will make a way when there seems to be no way..
He works in ways we cannot see..
God is good all the time..
I stand in awe of You...

An extract from Lincoln Brewster's Real Life
which i felt it made lots of sense and spoke to me :)

"When I'm old and turning grey
And my boys have moved away
When it's time for me to say goodbye
I hope I leave a legacy
I hope that God is proud of me
I hope that I leave something good behind

And all my yesterdays are flashing right before my eyes
And I'm standing in God's presence when I finally realize

This is real life
This is real good
It's a place I took for granted 'cause I just never understood
And there'll be no pain
And there'll be no tears
'Cause the way my Father loves me makes me grateful I am here"

Only 1 life, live it for Him.

Because I know You live
I'll put my faith in this
That You hear my call
Lord You hear me calling
Because I know You live
I'll set my heart on this
You won't let me fall
When all else is falling

When all You are is glorious Oh God
Victorious and strong
Whom shall I fear
When all You are is powerful and true
And good in all You do
Whom shall I fear
Whom shall I fear

Because You're on my side
I won't believe the lie
That I'm all alone
I'm not all alone here
Because You live in me
My heart will still believe
That You came to save
And You'll come to save me

I know You're with me in the fire
You never leave me in the flame
I know Your thoughts are so much higher
And all Your ways are not my ways

You are for me
You came to save me
You will never let me go
In my heart I'll always know
I know that You are for me
I know that You are for me
I know that that you will never forsake me in my weakness
I know that You have come now even if to write upon my heart
To remind me who You

None of this fazes us
because Jesus loves us
I'm absolutely convinced that nothing
nothing living or dead
angelic or demonic
today or tomorrow
high or low
thinkable or unthinkable
absolutely nothing can get between us

and God's love because of the way
that Jesus our Master has embraced us.
