Boon Keong's Last Goodbye

It was a hard wake up call for many as it was how they should live life to the fullest. For me, it was could I tell my Lord am I really finishing well? Seeing his face lik that it was saddening. The make up was so thick, I presume it was to cover his wounds.

Knowing him since Maha Bodhi to Macpherson days. There was an unsaid competitiveness between us in our runs perharps even bball. We always recall him smiling, never frowns, never angry. He was a man of influence, counsellor, and a friend to many.

Im so honoured by his family, the grief they felt and yet being so sensitive, excusing me not taking the incense but out of respect I decided to bow. He did it with the best smile he could muster and said "Its Ok" it broke my heart.

Lord, may peace reign in his family, let not grief overtake them but that comfort that transcends all understanding. Lord its a wrong time to ask why, Im here to pray, bless and trust. In the end...its not Why...its Why Not?

Poly student dies after his motorcycle crashes on SLE

A FINAL-YEAR manufacturing engineering student from Nanyang Polytechnic died after his motorcycle skidded and crashed along Seletar Expressway on Tuesday morning at about 2.10am.

Toh Boon Keong, 19, was on his way home after dropping his girlfriend at her place in Aljunied.

He was travelling along Seletar Expressway when his motorcycle skidded and hit the central divider before landing on the centre lane.

Mr Toh sustained serious head and body injuries and was rushed to Tan Tock Seng Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 3.20am.

The last time his mother, Madam Yee Lee Cher spoke to him was on Monday night at 8pm. She had asked him if he would be turning up for a family dinner.

But Mr Toh, who worked as a part-time cinema service crew member said he could not make it as he ended work only at 10 pm.

Madam Yee, 50, remembers her youngest of three children as a lively and filial child.

'He said he would take care of me when I am old, but now he has left me behind,' she said in tears.

Learning Loads

I have just shifted from a season of recovery to a whole new season. You know like going back to school, projects, training and driving. Back to my endeavours! Weeee

Tommy Tenny was here in Singapore, had the privilege to sit through his conference and sermon. It really kept me thinking, I really thank God for such great insightful people. Loads of take home messages I will try to process through 1 by 1.

Sometime ago, I will consider the glory of God is base on how great my endeavours are. I hear people praying reminding me I'm doing it for His Glory. But than again like Pastor Tommy said,u really want to see the glory of God? Well u will die than. Explaining with the tabernacle and the veil explaining how God protecting us.
It kept me thinking, could the glory of God be varied in different people Christian walk? But yet still pointing to the greatness of God, reflecting in his goodness? Was sharing with Josh, and learnt its lesser of the WHAT and more of the HOW.

Next was sharing about Esther,I thought it was really deep. In this book if u realise God was never mentioned at all in this book. But yet there r so much lessons to learn, nurture and apply. Pastor Tommy said a lot of key points but for me it was this. That we shall not prostitute King's favour but something lower, and worship controls my destiny. Worship shows where my heart lies. Worship whether in works or words, its my purpose.

Josh reminded me favour goes beyond just earning it for yourself. Esther had favour from the Xerxes so in the end she became Queen than she saved a nation. Favour is to be used for OTHERS.

I pray we will not just take this to our mind but to our hearts and actions. Whats the use of sitting in that Hall and not applying his truth, the insights and obeying the counsel of the Holy Spirit? Isn't that worship?
