Good Morning

I decided to wake up early and have breakfast at Big Splash. My request was simple, to have Christ to join me. As reality sets in, to
morrow I will feel overwhelming pain, be flooded with fatigue. Christ, steadied my heart. I have done what I can, now is to surrender it to Him. Sometimes in life, we wish to soar or run this eternal race of ours. But sometimes, walking is enough. Our gifts and abilities can do so little sometimes, but in the hands of God. Water been turn to wine, 5 loaves and 2 fishes can feed thousands, a rod can split the sea.
I'm off guys...DO pray for me :) Let not my heart turn to wax and be melted away, my strength dried up like potsherd. But to have overflowing perseverance, strength, determination and surrenderance. That I will finish it. C u all soon.

3 Days till the last exam. 4 Days till the most important race for this season. I feel calm, peaceful still asking for more confidence but serene. All I want to do now is rest, study, pray and wait. 
How often we are a decisive, immediate, instant generation. As a triathlete, no athlete ever waits. No one likes to wait. But Christ himself has waited, we love to see Him immediately healing the sick, miracles happen. But he waits for Lazarus resurrection, wait for the 4th night watch. In OT itself God has said wait on him 60+ times. What does waiting for the Lord means? I do know what it is not. It is not a passive thing, but with a sense of expectancy, discipline, patience, confident, and sometimes painful. More importantly, waiting humbles as you know you have to depend on him. What God does in us while we wait is as important as what we are waiting for. Waiting is Hope.
I'm waiting Lord... that strength for the day. To take up my cross and running this race. The Ironman. The IM in the IMpossible. And I know, u be there. The same power that conquer the grave, lives in me

Appreciating Singlehood

As I sit back drinking my latte today. I cant help but think of this day which all couples in the world celebrate. Somehow people presume that as guys have to be out with a lady or many ladies today, or we will just die. As people we are so afraid to be alone, or cant bear to be alone. that's why guys around us get desperate, girls lowering standards just to get attached flippantly

But you know, 3 years ago maybe I would. But as time passes as one grow. I learn to appreciate singlehood. I learnt not to pity it or even rejoice about it. But true appreciation. Some people may say one is too young etc. But I just know that should I should be pursuing things that truly matters at this point of time. Besides, patience builds a man. :)

Clenched Fists

As the race of the year is coming, I realise the hardest thing I have to is not to train to have steel in me but to be trained to let go. Letting go of my fears, expectations and even goals. It could be so hard sometimes as I want to b in control but I realise I have no joy, strength, and faith more than Him? How can I not unclench my fists as HE reach to open my hands.
Forgive me Lord. As I know as Peter got out of the boat it was hard for him to let go of the 1 thing that kept him in control. His Boat. It was just as hard for me to get out of my own. Now Lord, Let me not forget YOU are with me as I fixed my eyes onto you. Renew my joy, Strengthen my faith. Its time to do what I love doing. To Run.

And u know whats the more beautiful thing than walking on water? As u drown, He will reach his hands to u :)
