170118 // HIS APPOINTMENT > MAN’S DISAPPOINTMENT
.
Behind this picture and many others taken at this location is a story of delay and frustration. On this day, I was being extremely picky and had asked @myhopeisu to help retake photos for me. I didn’t understand my own strange behaviour that day 🤔
.
It took us an extra 20 minutes or so and when we finally stepped out of this place and walked to the train station, we bumped into two Uni students who invited us to a Korean Cultural exchange for FREE. It was on @myhopeisu’s heart since the previous trip in 2014 to wear a hanbok and experience Korean culture, customs and food. But here we were being PURSUED to enjoy a secret petition of our hearts, FULLY PAID for and at the PERFECT timing. I had asked the students what time they had set out and they told me just 10 minutes before meeting us 😱💥
.
I realised then that sometimes God allows delays, frustration and seeming strategic disappointment because He has a greater blessing in store for His beloved children. We may not understand why we have to go through it but now I understood that had we not delayed for 20 minutes, we would have missed out on His perfect and unmerited blessings that He has in store for us 😢
.
Situations in life may sometimes feel like a delay but we can trust that we have a God whose appointment for our blessings will always be in perfect time and He will not withhold His best from us. 🌊#eyesonYou

050118 // A HEART FILLED WITH WARMTH
.
This trip was a fitting curtain call for 2017. As I bid farewell to the year of many victories and welcomed a new one in another land, I couldn’t help but be moved with thanksgiving as to how much I have been blessed with all these years. It was a perfect time for me to let go, reflect and seek clarity for the year ahead. For myself, my family and the ministry
.
We always used to say in mandarin “休息是为了走更远的路” - Rest is so that we can walk greater journeys. Never has it been more apt for me on this love break. I could be walking in a lava cave, dimly lit but suddenly be filled with love and compassion and start tearing. I feel settled and rested for the year ahead. Grateful that I could slow down my pace to rest and refresh myself
.
My heart is still feeling warmed and in a reflective mode how in the every day that we asked for favour & qarah and exceedingly free favours were given on this trip. Not one wish was forgotten. It was always on time 😢
.
“Was not my heart greatly moved and burning within me while He was talking with me on the road and as He opened and explained to me His Word?” - paraphrased Luke 24:32 💗

“Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come away” - Song of Songs 2:10 ESV
.
Writing out what He has written on my heart and tearing as we shared about His love. Best day in HanGuk yet
.
Sidenote - STRAWBERRY PASTRY stole my heart. Inspired by strawberry shortcake, it is a multi-layered, buttery pastry laid on a toothsome crushed nut-lemon syrup paste, topped it with a thick, vanilla bean-flecked custard and adorned with two fresh strawberry halves. Baklava meets strawberry cake 💗🍓
.
Thanks @myhopeisu for capturing these unplanned moments of retreat and being entreated by Him for a love break 🐑

Who can find a friend who sits with you at a cafe and talk about Big J’s love and goodness till both of you start tearing? 😭 Thanks for being that faithful (Hebrew meaning - steadfast, trusted, a pillar, support and upholder) friend who is running this race together with me so boldly for His glory 🙆🏼

Spending the NY’s overseas but close to His heart this year. Can’t wait for the greater to come for us in 2018. Loving the Israel spoils 🎁😘

2 0 1 7. What a year of Jubilee for our CGs in @cckn6cg, #YMGCG & #upperthomsoncg! We brought no physical presents because we have the greatest gift 🎁
.
Give thanks to God first. Not because He has given you the breakthrough. Not because you have the blessing but because He is good. It is the assuredness of God’s goodness and His faithful love that never fails. That’s why we can give thanks
.
Give thanks - in Hebrew is the word yadah. Yadah יָדָה means praise but it also means to shoot an arrow or throw a stone. If you are in despair and despondent, praise Him because praise is like shooting an arrow or throwing a stone at your troubles
.
Yad in Hebrew means Hand ✋🏼
Ah is the letter hei for Grace
.
When we praise and give thanks to God, we are allowing the hand of Grace to be upon us. Surrendering to His grace upon our lives
.
Above the clutter, I pray that NW cluster always be conscious of God’s righteous hand of grace upon their lives. Knowing that they are the beloved of Daddy God and that He takes daily delight in them. #LiveLoved #LiveLoving #TheBELOVEDCluster
