His love is great.

A friend of mine and Irene was diagnosed with lung cancer in June '09. She was strong in the Lord and had faith that God will take control and heal her. Indeed the cancer went away. But lately, there was a relapse and her condition deteriorated badly. However, she has strong faith in God our healer. She has been a blessing to many friends of hers and the ccfers.

I was very encouraged reading her blog and e-mails that she sends from time to time. Her testimony made me ponder about my faith in God. Do I have such faith ? Will I give up easilly and just surrender? Just recently on Thursday 22nd September, our cell group visited her. I couldn't go that day as I had to work. Irene told me that she could not talk and recognize her own friends. She was under oxygen support and under morphin to ease her pain.

My heart dropped as I heard this. Is there anymore hope ? I visited her the next morning on Friday 23rd Sept 2011 and her condition worsen. She couldn't open her eyes and she was groaning. I prayed for her and I could feel her responding as I could feel her trying to speak from her groan. I know that her spirit is still very strong and yet her body is so weak. The doctors so happened came and told her hubby that she probably can live another 2 or 3 days.

Hope seems so far away. What should I pray ? That the Lord brings her home so that she won't suffer or pray that she will be healed? Faith was empty in me. I felt guilty. Reading her mails again encourage me again. I told the Lord, heal her as You are the Lord our healer and a Lord of miracles. Thy will be done. Heal her if that is your plan. She is still young and have 2 kids 8 and 5 years old. Let her live and be a testimony to others of her faith in You.

Well, on Saturday, another cell group went to visit her too and I heard from Irene that when they sang worship songs to the Lord, she could open her eyes and asked for her glasses so that she can see clearly who came. It was a great encouragement to me and Irene. That night I couldn't stop thinking of what is God's plan and I kept thinking of Henry and Liz. I could see that Henry's heart was tormented and how he has to bear the suffering seeing Liz. I prayed that the Lord will heal her. I took out my newly bought ukelele (Still learning how to play it) and a song came to me. I started writing the lyrics about how a husband hopes for her wife to be healed and how God will make everything alright. Took my webcam and recorded myself singing it and sent the song to Henry. It would be a good encouragement to him.

And then came today, Sunday 25th Sept 2011, we visited her again with our cell group. Many ccfers were there too to visit her including Rev Marvin Wong too. Praise the Lord, Liz eyes were opened and she could see all of us and she could smile. It was a great moment. All of us sang hymns and prayed for her. Faith is strong again ?

I was thinking how God is looking at us where we have such little faith. We have to see to believe and be stronger. Yet God is forever faithfull. I recalled the previous song I wrote entitled God is Faithful. We have to learn to let go all the doubts and start believing.

Lets continue to build of faith and pray for God to heal Liz in a miraculous way. Praise the Lord that she was much better today. And to Henry and Liz and family, don't let go and know that God will make things right eventually. God loves you.

The song I wrote:-

Tomorrow when you wake up
You'll see my eyes
Tomorrow when it is bright
You'll be in my arms

You and I will be together forever and ever
I will be holding you baby
Forever I'm yours

Tomorrow when you wake up
You'll see His love
Tomorrow when it is bright
You'll be ALRIGHT

You and I will be together forever and ever
I will be holding you baby
Forever I'm yours

God will always be your shining Light
He's there for you
You will always be the one He cares....He Loves you

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord

Taken from Psalms 150 and Romans 14:11, this is a song I came up with yesterday night. Spend the whole night doing it. Feeling very sleepy indeed now.

Psalms 150:1-6 Praise the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre Praise him with tambourine and dancing, praise him with the strings and flute Praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the LORD Praise the LORD Romans 14:11 It is written: "'As surely as I live,' says the Lord 'every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God'"

Be still and know that I am God

Recently was inspired to write songs from the versus of the bible by my wife's boss's church who wrote songs exactly from the bible versus.

This is one song adapted from their album. I call it Be still. Hope you meditate upon the words as below :-

Psalm 27:1-3 The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?. The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell. My heart shall not fear.

Psalm 46:10 Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth !
