I Should Not be Defeated!!
It has been a week of silent. As I’ve been faithfully reporting myself at the Blood bank for my BP Test since Tuesday to Friday morning.
The four days of result on my BP was not really encouraging, in fact, to certain people, they think is ‘worrying’ or rather ‘alarming’.. to be honest, I felt discouraged and defeated.
That’s the struggles I’m facing every morning and evening. The battle between FAITH
Just like the saying…‘it is easier to be said than done’… in fact it is so easy to tell one patient that ‘have faith in God’, ‘Relax’, ‘No worries..God is in control’ .. but when you are facing it.. there is where the REAL battle begins.. or that is the time you have to really ‘eat’ back your own words… hehe.. for once I was like a hypocrite.. for not living as a Promised People of God. Fear begins to creep in.. as if telling me to prepare for the worse.. what if you are not healed? What if is not just your BP? What if is something cancerous? What if is a tumor? What if? Could it be a punishment from God? (wow.. I sound like a Jew during the time of Jesus.. haha).. so many ‘what if-s’, so many ‘could it be-s’..
Deep down, as a people of promise, I know I shouldn’t let fear creeping in.. the nurse who attended me for the past 4 days indeed really really helpful.. but every time she sees from the monitor or hears through the stethoscope, her reveals her worry for me.. haiz.. I can tell by her face.. when I see people surrounding me began to worry about me.. that is where the fear creeping in… haiz.. not that I dun wan you to care for me.. in fact.. I felt so lonely by battling it by myself. But one thing I know.. I still have a God that will never leave me.. and I’m going to remind myself again and again.. that I cannot let all these to bother me. For now.. let’s eat healthily.
After much prayer and thoughts, decided to go on low sodium-high fiber diet for the coming week, sounds like on diet.. not for the size but rather for the health..that’s also mean that I will not be able to go Raya visitings, then the coming week, going to see Doc for the full blood test.. meantime claiming healing and proclaim victory!
Do pray with me.. for I cant battle myself without you. :-)
Still got so much to do:1. Battling with my fear and worries.. burying them so that I can see the light on the other end.
2. My assignments of coz.. both reading and written assignments.. really killing me and blurring my thinking.. and of coz stressing me up!
3. My BK classes.. Haven’t really sit down and plan, and the due date is coming, and I can’t even think right!
4. another course to take, Understanding the Old Testament, really under pressure!
5. Christmas is coming.. what to have? What to share? What to give? What to do?
I do feel pressurized, I dunno how.. I know I need commit it all unto the Lord, yet I still feel the same.. I guess I’ve taken it back from the Lord, aiyo.. I cant help but pressure.. haiz,… so, I think that’s my problem lor..Joshua 23:10One of you routs a thousand, because the LORD your God fights for you, just as he promised .If my God is for me, tell me who can be against me?! Amen!

GOD IS IN CONTROL!!
and i shall have Faith..

High BP = Bad sign…????
It was not the first time I was told that my blood pressure (BP) was high. In a few occasions during the church’s blood donation campaign, my blood pressure was kinda high.. so meaning to say I was rejected by the nurses for giving blood. It wasn’t easy to handle it.. coz i dun like rejection and also kinda worry.. something must be really wrong somewhere inside..
Last Saturday’s blood donation campaign (20th Sept).. I went for a test again.. hehe.. I knew I can’t give lar.. coz of PMS, I just want to take a chance to check on my BP.. gee.. to my horror.. it was really bad.. it was like 150 over 110? I cant really remember the lower one, but the upper one enuf to shock me.. the nurse was like.. ‘mana kau kerja oh?’.. I was laughing there and said ‘sini lor’.. hahah.. I know they intend it for good.. maybe they think I over stressed or too busy with work.. therefore my BP reads it loud and HIGH.. wow.. I’m scared man..
Think about it.. maybe these few weeks, I’ve been really stressed up.. though I appear to be ‘ok’ ..ahaha.. worry about my reading assignments, my paper assignments, my upcoming meetings, my upcoming planning for the youths’ Christmas, what we going to do next? Bla bla bla bla… is all running in my head.. try to settle it by writing down and listing it.. guess wat.. it DOESN’T WORK AT ALL.. or maybe is the Overcomers who really stressed me out.. the way we live as Christians sometimes really breaking hearts.. but who may live righteously? See.. Worry again… so.. tat’s it la.. should I put a blame on all these? Maybe it was just my lack of self discipline and my lack of faith to the Almighty.. but still I will cry.. ‘Lord help me Lord.. I nid You’.. sounds familiar? Hehehe
After talking to my dear doctor fren, she advised me to go for a week of BP test.. every single day.. hmm.. seems like a challenge to me.. but for my own sake.. I think I will wan to do that.. today is Monday.. let’s start today, maybe later part of the afternoon when the patients tak ramai... and see how I can keep track with.. will show my report card next week…hopefully.. diet..diet..diet…hehe
No matter what the outcome will be…
Should I not put my trust in my God, who cares for me much more than anything else..
Should I not give thanks to Him, for He has never fail to be by my side, even at times I chose to hurt Him..
Should I not praise Him..
Should I not find joy in Him..
Should I not hold on to Him..
Should I not love Him and just love Him only..
A VERSE TO CLAIM
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22
A Joy for the inner part of my heart is what I ask Lord, Joy in serving You, Joy in sharing, Joy in loving….Grant I pray. Amen!
Make me laugh y’all.. Make me happy.. hahaha..
Oh no.. just now after meeting.. boss said wanna see our assignments b4 end of sept.. WARRHHGGHHGHG!!! Help me Lord.. (really in a hot plate now)

Dunno what’s in my mind.. today really not a good day.. my head is cracking the whole afternoon.. therefore I’m posting randomly here..Firstly: Home Alone
Hmm.. my last day being ‘home alone’ .. it has been 5 days I was sleeping at home all by myself. Sometimes I just love the feeling of being in a quiet home.. TV all by myself.. watch any channel I like, eat my meals in front of the TV, take a long long shower.. wuhuhu... do I miss my family? Hmm.. maybe a little.. hehe.. but able to be home alone is an opportunity..it doesn’t happen often. just that was a bit sad coz these 5 days.. I’ve been out almost all nights.. except Friday. Hmm.. I wonder when can I have a break again.. having the whole home all by myself.. I like it!! the only thing I dislike is.. I have to switch on and off the lights.. so if I‘m home late.. the house will be in pitch dark! And if I wake up late.. I waste energy for not switching off the light. Ahaha.. oh no..i miss being home alone liao.. tomorrow all of them are coming back..THANK YOU LORD FOR GIVING ME OPPORTUNITY TO BE HOME ALONE
Secondly: Back to School
I have been struggling on my reading and writing assignments for my Certificate of Church Ministry by Sabah Theological Seminary. Topic: Ministering to Children.
It was not an easy task.. neither a tough one.. just that it requires more effort to do it.. hmm. I am not a reading person.. therefore it makes me harder to go thru all the reading materials tat requires my reading.. is definitely not a good experience.
My mind is blank.. totally..and I’m too working hard on it.. because I must no matter what finished my assignments before September ends.. for I have another class coming in early October.. *faint*THANK YOU LORD FOR GIVING ME OPPORTUNITY TO EXPAND MY KNOWLEDGE FOR YOUR GLORY
Thirdly: Teaching Teacher
Recently I have been given the task to teach a manual Start Right 3 for the confirmation candidates. The Overcomers are doing the Start Right 2 on the same time.. gee.. I got the SR2 & SR 3 lessons all mixed up.. and I really feeling bad about it.. if I’ve disappoint you.. sorry people.
I am also preparing myself to take up the Bible Knowledge Class for the youths next year. It was not easy too.. again it takes extra extra hard work and readings.. and need to attend some classes too.. argghh…. So much to learn from Aunty Ping Ching.. she is like a walking bible commentary, specially on Acts & Luke.. I’m like a lil 555 booklet. So little..THANK YOU LORD FOR BLESSING ME WITH GOOD TEACHERS AND ABLE TO BE A BLESSING TO OTHERS.

Hi.. sorry for the delay. This post I’m writing to give you updates on my dad’s condition.
Well.. thank God and thank you for praying. Truly it was almost like a miracle by having Dad able to admit on Thursday and did his angiogram on Thursday itself. I know this is truly God’s favour and grace, and the answered prayers of all saints.
Why I said this? a pakcik we came to know when we were in hospital, also from Labuan, happened to register himself earlier than my Dad on Tuesday, but did not get admitted on Thursday. That was like Miracle No. 1.
Miracle No. 2, after admitting Dad on the Thursday morning, Sharon, Mom & I took a cab down to Centre Point.. SHOPPING!! Ahaha.. yea.. we did a 5 hours shopping spree. It was tiring yet fun, and also a relief/ break for Mom being worry about Dad. And Dad able to have a good rest in the hospital.
Miracle No.3, we head home after shopping, took rest and got ourselves readied around 6pm. Then we went to see Dad, Dad’s angiogram was scheduled at 8pm. While Mom was talking to Dad.. Sharon and I went around the wad.. talked to the nurses. After talking on the phone, one of the nurses told us that it was Dad’s turn.. we were liked ‘What?!’.. then they prepared Dad and off he went to the operation theatre. I felt it was truly God’s favour. While waiting for Dad to finish, we met another family also from Labuan, the husband is working with KML, he was having a ByPass, a heart operation.
So, the result of Dad’s angioplasty. It was not favouring, the result shown that Dad has 3 blocked blood vessels out of 4. It was really bad in fact. But I’m thankful Dad is ok now and resting at home.. Though all of us were disappointed, but Dad with his own mouth confessed that he acknowledged the power of prayers, as we keep telling him that the church and people were praying for him. That alone I GIVE PRAISE AND THANKS TO GOD. and also.. Dad was discharged on Friday noon! Another answered prayer.
Dad will be scheduled for his bypass operation. Am not sure about the dates, only will we know after meeting the heart specialist this coming 19th Sept in KK. Should be either end of this year or early next year.
Please pray with us, as a family,
1. that Dad will be protected and experienced more of God during this time of waiting,
2. that Dad will be able to quit smoking (which I only can surrender to God in this matter)
3. that Dad will experience God’s healing touch that God will spare him from going thru bypass, even if dad has to go thru, God’s presence and love will still be with him.
4. that the family will look to God and experience God.
5. pray for protection and favour of God and man.
A VERSE TO CLAIM
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
For the smokers.. please quit.. you do not know what you are getting into until the day you see death approaching. If you are not.. NEVER ever think of trying to be one. Please.. always know that smoking will not get you out of your problems and anxieties, only God can.
Learn to say TAK NAK

A Call to Pray
Hi.. i'm presently in KK now, in the Rectory of Christ Church Likas to be exact.
was here since yesterday, Monday, with my parents and Sharon, my sister. we are here because Dad is going thru a heart surgery procedure in Sabah Medical Center. the doctors said dad's heart veins are clogged, so must go thru a procedure where the doctors will make a small hole either thru his hands, legs or stomach.. then the doctors will put a scope in and follow the blood vein to the main vein of the heart to see/scope the real condition of the clogging. then if is necessary, they will then put certain chemical (i think) thru the scope to break the clogs (mainly caused by cholestrol).. the name of this procedure is Angio-plastic Surgery Procedure. some people call it 'balooning'.. itu bahasa pasar.. hehe..but i dun like the term 'operation'.. is not tat 'operation' afterall.. jz the term can be scary.
so, this morning we went to QE (queen elizabeth hospital) to pick up a letter then to SMC try to check in.. but the Admission counter said the doctor from IJN. KL will only be in KK on thursday, so we were asked to go home.. we are to wait for a phone call from SMC tmr, then maybe only by thursday dad will be admitting to SMC, prayerfully by evening he can done with his procedure, so tat sharon and i can come back on friday morning...
so, please pray for my dad:
1. pray that he is physically well, as now he getting more and more worry abt the whole procedure.
2. pray that his heart procedure can be done by thursday itself. also that he may discharge on friday, and able to rest at home before going back to labuan on sunday.
3. pray that there will not be any complications throughout the procedure, that God will give wisdom and clarity of mind (as there are so many patients going thru the angio this time), love, patience and peace to all doctors, nurses and patients.
4. pray for speedy recovery
5. pray for protection, favour of God and man upon the whole procedure, from the beginning to the end
6. pray for safe journey to go back to Labuan to rest and recover
7. pray that dad will experience the love of God, that his heart will be open towards His love and salvation.
thank you people for praying. will post the updates when i'm back.
