Laughter is Healing

Was listening to this sermon last night and i had a good laugh before i fall asleep! Pastor Joel is so funny šŸ™‚

Ok, 1 great thing i heard about laughter is, each time you laugh, 87% of Youth cells are increasingly produced, who needs SK2 in that case! Haha šŸ˜€

Laughter is also Healing , find out why in this sermon.

My 12hours fasting starts now, today (10 Oct 2012) is a church-wide fasting day for City Harvest Church. We are praying and fasting to be closer to God and also for unity among ourselves and also for CHC to reach a higher level through various trials.

I personally pray for my own desires as well as Fairness and Justice to be with CHC šŸ™‚

Alright, thats all, let me conserve some energy and meanwhile, you folks enjoy the Word!

Special note to Seven and Gary, thank you guys.Ā Both of youĀ really really made me understandĀ what isĀ true friendship. I always thought that i am a good friend, you know, loyal, helpful and etc.

But, i didnt know how to loveĀ and be sensitive with my words and minimize the hurts when thereĀ are conflicts. Thank you for showing me unconditional love and still loving me despite me being mean sometimes.

I love you guys truly and i cherish the bond we have between us šŸ™‚

My Fasting Song this time:

Positive God Positive You

There is a way to be happy in life. I cant promise abundant joy but it definitely cut away disappointments and sadness that situations or human beings might cause you.

It is, to mind your own business. Yes, do not be bothered or care about that hopeless situation, cut that disappointment away from your life.
Saw that Facebook status posted by someone that will affect you? Block it, Hide it, whatever you can to not see it.

I am actually doing all the above now, i hope it works. It actually will work.

Here is one sermon iĀ enjoyed very much before i went to sleep last night, to bless you guys, here is the link:

You might also wana download an awesome app call Daily BibleĀ on your Iphones, androids.

I Love this app, besides giving you various verses for the day, Devotion reading plan, they have various podcast and the above sermon is actually 1 of them. My personal fav preacher is Joyce Meyer and Joel Osteen.

Here is a few snapshots of the app:

This is the main page of the app, showing the verse of the day, you may also share in your fb or twitter, your fav verse.

Ā This is your Devotion page, which you can find various podcast by various teachers, preachers.

Select the message and get connected, then it will play! Enjoy the word of God!

I realise that iĀ really need the message of God very much. It is definitely rejuvenating for me as iĀ often feel iĀ am lacking. While church service is only once a week, cell group is also once a week, iĀ cant possiblyĀ be singing to God 24/7, nor do iĀ do humanitarianĀ works 24/7, time passes by in my busy schedule and honestly, i am tired, sometimes grumpy, not much ways to feel joy.My friend Mindy was telling me that it is good to hunger for God, to yearn for Him. It is a blessing.

Sometimes, IĀ feel so tired and upset over ntg, because my life was in a medicore state. The Ā “barely get by, nothing worth to be sad over, yet nothing seems to be happy about days” are really tiring.Ā  I could not find joy in any area otherĀ than talking to my family and spending time in helping others in need.
Whenever iĀ am alone, iĀ start to feel empty again. These messages keep in inline with God’s words and refreshes my mind while i am really too lazy to read the bible at times.

I guess the best way for me, is still listening to sermons. They are encouraging and they remind me how much Jesus love me, no matter how lonely iĀ feel or how helpless iĀ feel. I somehow feel that iĀ shouldnt be reminded because the Holy Spirit lives in me, why should i be reminded then?

But it really helps alotĀ when someone anointed reminded you gently about God’s love. Especially for those that needs Him so much, especially for those that has bitterness in them who really need to get back to God again.

(having said that, iĀ encourage you to read the bible as iĀ am also trying hard to, tip: if you cantĀ read the bible as you feel it is too dry, like hwĀ iĀ feel, try picking up some spiritual books – i am currently reading Heaven is For Real. I find it helpful because fromĀ  the book, i can actually find various verses, and ideas on how to get better understanding from the bible, better understanding on how to read from the bible)

Last week, I was listening to Joel Osteen’s Your life is Framed.

When iĀ first saw the word “framed”, nope, iĀ didnt feel negative like what most people feel (Framed, mostly used when you are maligned, somebody kinda put the blame on you intentionally).

I just feel that the word told me that my destiny is already framed up by my beloved God. I do not need to worry about having or not having certain things. They will eventually be given by my Father God. Jesus love me from the start and till the end. He is my author of my life. He brings right people, open right doors for me, though yes, He allowed the wrongs to happen too (to mould and strengthenĀ me), but eventually, He is doingĀ good for me. Why should iĀ feel empty or sad when i can actually prepare myself for a good day, for a challenges ahead?

It is a good sermon, Pastor Joel never fails to speak to my soul and he is so gentle.

It is not easy to stay positive all the time, mental and physical stressĀ is actuallyĀ taking its toll on me. I promise. Especially recently, iĀ keep seeing things iĀ rather not see, iĀ rather not have any news about this friend because iĀ am so disappointed and kinda hurt by this friend. Yet, because of the little demonic FB, iĀ keep seeing the friend’s updates. I get tired easily recently too, and iĀ realise age is catching up on me, iĀ went to a club on Saturday and went shopping on Sunday, on the following Monday, my legs cant move at all and was in great pain. šŸ˜¦
I am getting less contended and more grumpy about anything that might upset me.

Though Jesus never say that we should not feel sad, but neither should we keep being emo because we are supposed to have joy through Christ not through situation or human.

To stay happy, there are various ways, 1 of which, is to speak good (yes, even if you dontĀ feel like it). So from today, imma speaking Good.Ā  Are you gonna do the same? šŸ˜€
