This year has been a crazy ride
God's hand of blessing has certainly been upon my life and when I reflect back upon this year, I see how God has blessed me with so much, from providing countless of opportunities to step up into leadership positions to blessing me academically, I'm really thankful for how I have been blessed so abundantly. However this year has also brought me down to my lowest points as well, down to my knees, to a point where everything that is familiar to me has been stripped away and I'm truly left with nothing but God to hold on to. God is bringing me through the fire, He is doing His work in my life and even though this is one of the most painful years that I've ever had in my life, it is the most worthwhile experience ever. I've learnt many important life lessons this year and it has most definitely changed me a lot as an individual, I've matured so much in this time of testing (and the wbf is gonna call me a old woman once again) and I have become so much stronger as an individual. I've grown so much closer to the Lord and have started claiming the victories He has planned ahead for me. This place of fire is not of pain and suffering but of blessing and abundance and at the end of it all, the fulfillment of the promises that He has made to me will make this journey worthwhile.
And to all those individuals who have been there with me throughout this year, offering me words of encouragement, covering me with prayer and giving me timely messages/calls to remind me that I'm loved, I'm really thankful for each and everyone of you for sticking by me through it all.
2012 has come to an end, but 2013 will be another race for me to run. And as apprehensive and unprepared as I am for what is to come, I will continue to walk with God and trust in Him for His deliverance and His guidance in all things.

I can do anything,
I can do all things,
For it's you who gives me strength,
Nothing is impossible!

There comes a point in your life where you will need to decide what is worth it and what isn't, and the end of this year will be that point in my life. Really need to start focusing my time and energy on people and things that are worth it.
A Season of Thanksgiving II

Another round of thanksgiving today <3
CONRAD KOH YI YONG THE WEIRD BEST FRIEND <3
Seriously, it amazes me at how well this guy over here knows me and I love talking to him because he makes so much sense and logic out of everything, okay it can get pretty annoying at times but I guess that's what you get when you have a math major as a WBF. But most importantly whatever he says always makes me think so much deeper into things and helps me realize the greater truth. Basically he speaks sense into my life especially when I'm being stubborn minded and stuff. And over the years that we've known each other, I've seen how much he has grown and matured as an individual to become a man of God that I am really proud of :) Even though he's always being mean and calling me names and stuff, I know that he truly cares for me and loves me. I really am truly blessed to have someone like this in my life!
Momo & Waisiong!
Momo's the retarded friend of mine in red and I've known him since I was 10, so that makes it 8 years since we've known each other. I'm really lucky to have him be my classmate for my 4 years in Anderson, from lower sec days where we did stupid things together after school and would talk on the phone for hours debating over stupid things to our upper sec days, where we'd sit at the back of class playing pokemon on his DS and doing SRP together (plucking 40g of cow grass in the field for hours). I'll always remember all the weird and touching things he's done for me, from declaring 1% of his love as mine for eternity to how he came down all the way to plaza singapura to pass me my birthday present in 2010 just because he wanted me to have it on the actual day. And it was such a thoughtful present, a giant toy bear (because I call him momo my pet bear) that he wanted me to have with me for the rest of my life so that I'll have 'someone' to cry to whenever I'm feeling down. It's seriously one of the sweetest things anyone has done for me and till this day on bad days I'd still hug momo (the name of the toy bear) and wish for myself to feel better. And I know this is super retarded but it's been like nearly 2 years since I've met him, but that warm, comforting feeling I get still remains.
Momo can never ever be replaced!
And Wai Siong, this guy is just crazy. Seriously, since I've known him in sec 1 I've already thought that he was really crazy and ever since then he has become such an integral part of my life (I can't even escape him if I wanted to), but he's really (quite) a joy to have around! Always making weird ass comments and being bitchy with me and being such a naggy 'motherly' figure to all of us little kids (that's what he calls us). But he's really this damn encouraging person, always encouraging us in the weirdest of ways, but providing good encouragement nonetheless.
Really so blessed. #PTL
A Season of Thanksgiving
Monday, 17 December 2012
It's been such a long exhausting day, or days in fact but I have so much to give thanks for that I'm willing to give up hours of sleep just so I can write all of this out.
My barnabas club girls :)
Words can't even begin to express how thankful I am for you. This year has been an absolute roller coaster ride for us, from getting thrown together as a group to the changes in leadership and many other changes, and at the end of the day, I'm glad that we are still standing here together as one. Seeing each and everyone of you grow so much in the Lord this year, encountering Him and even pressing in during the 40 days of prayer period to hear His voice have been great sources of encouragement for me. They constantly remind me of how Great a God I have and that the sacrifices I make every week to serve Him and His people is worth it. Most of all, seeing all of you slowly get moulded into the women that God wants you all to be is the greatest reward of all.
And for Deborah, this crazy girl that I met back in 2005 and have known ever since. Thanks for stepping up to the challenge and being such a blessing to me in helping me run the cell. I know it isn't easy, being handed a task like that halfway through the year but thank you so much for having my back and supporting me through this journey. I really look forward to co-leading the cell with you in the future :)
And of course there's Allison.
I know I have said this a thousand times, but I'm really glad and blessed to have Ally in my life. I can't remember exactly how many years I've known her because somehow along the way in our years in rangers, our lives just started crossing paths and soon after that we've just become friends for life. I definitely believe that this isn't by chance, but something that God has orchestrated for the both of us. Thank you so much for being such an amazing friend over the past few years, I really don't know what I would do without you at times, and I honestly doubt that I would have lasted so long in the RR ministry without you. Through all the smiles and the tears, through the highs and the lows, you've always been there :) We've really been through a lot together and I'm really glad that through everything that happened, I got to go through it with you. I love you Ally <3
Last but not least, the clique.
Oh my goodness, this crazy group of friends that I have (plus you megaloser)! Whenever we meet, it's a laughfest bound to happen, I laughed so hard today that my chest started to hurt. You guys bring so much joy into my life and I'm so happy whenever I am around you all :) I'll never forget the crazy things we did in sec school today and the many crazy stories we have to tell each time we meet! And most of all I love how we can just come together and pick up right where we left off from the previous time :) You guys are seriously awesome and are really one of the greatest group of friends that I can ever ask for <3
And of course, thank you God for blessing me above and beyond what I deserve.

I'M FINALLY BACK HERE. I KNOW, I'M TERRIBLE.
LIFE HAS BEEN SUCH A RUSH THESE PAST FEW WEEKS & NOW THAT IT'S THE HOLIDAYS AND LIFE IS BECOMING LESS HECTIC (CROSSING MY FINGERS), I FINALLY HAVE TIME TO PEN DOWN MY THOUGHTS.
I PROMISE I'LL TRY MY BEST. BECAUSE I ALWAYS WANT TO REMEMBER. I DON'T EVER WANT TO FORGET HOW I'M FEELING AT A SINGLE POINT IN MY LIFE.
