Bangkok, Here I Come!!!

1 more day before I fly to Bangkok!

I can’t wait to experience the FLOATING MARKET, shop in CHATUCHAK, MBK etc. and ascend the BAIYOKE SKY TOWER!

Busy traffic? Hot weather? Doesn’t matter!


I like adventures!

Will be back to update...

Laughing It Off!

I was just doing my usual QT on Mon night.
At the end of QT, I felt so much better after praying through a few issues that had been weighing my heart.
Just as I was about to end, the Holy Spirit reminded me about... "Holy Laughter".
=
I told God I really want to experience it in my QT.
Taking a step of faith, I closed my eyes, made a sincere prayer to the Lord and laid hand on my head.
=
The atmosphere thickened.
Shortly, I felt my lips stretching. The next moment, I started giggling.
At that point of time, one side of me kept on rationalisg that these were man-made.
But, somehow, I just simply could not contain the joy within and let out a few suppressed laughter!
Pressing on my abdomen, I fell side way, went on my back and began laughing on the floor!
=
I had to keep the volume low because I did not want to wake my parents up and made them wonder why was their daughter laughing like that, on the floor, in the middle of the night? ;-p
=
It's really a good time of holy laughter!
=
Tell u somethg funny... I pointed at myself in the mirror saying, "Joanne, you look good! That should be the way!" Hee...
=
I had a good one-hr QT and found myself smiling to bed.
=
And before retiring for the day, I checked my sms and smiled at some apology msgs for getting back late... Hee... "Ya, It happens sometimes"
=
Guess what happen the next morning?
=
Did I continue smiling when I get up?
=
Ha ha!!! No lah... I got up and quickly set off to work.
In the office, there were quite a number of things to settle.
But, thank God, I managed to solve it one-at-a-time, and even had the luxury of listening to music while working.
=
I logged on to http://www.imeem.com/ (a great music website), plugged my ear piece to the CPU and listened to the new worship song "Walau Seribu Rebah"- sang in church last week.
I was wonderfully soaked in the presence of God.
=
To my pleasant surprise, the same song was sung at the leaders' meeting later in the evening! *Yeah!!!*
=
Bro Ed shared a good word "SOLVITURE AMBULANDO" (which means solving by walking in Latin) and about how important it is to have "Holy Living" + "Holy Friends".
I'm very blessed by the message!
=
After the Word, we spent some time worshipping God.
God's presence was so strong!
Honestly speaking, I really dun wish to end the evening after the song ended.
=
"God... I want a touch from You! Please..."
=
A while later, Bro Ed told everyone to stand up and worship God.
=
Is he going to lay hands? I secretly hope... Yes!
=
All the leaders & helpers continued worshipping the Lord while Garv played the same spirit chords over and over again.
=
It was a moment of waiting upon the Holy Spirit...
=
And suddenly, a hand came upon my hand and I immediately broke into tears.
I fell under the power of God and cried my heart out!
I thought about a lot of things and made a decision to let go and let God.
=
At the end of the meeting, I left, feeling lighter in my heart, but heavy in my love tank. That's what I want.
=
God, thank you!

Probably some of you may not know... She's the one who brought me to church and helped me to know this wonderful God that we serve.


What you did really changed my life Em!
