Remember this song? This is the first song of my bathroom singing that I uploaded in this blog...but it was the short version of the song before and the sound was really bad. As you know that I have a method that can make me record voice much clearer, so I re-record this song. What I like about this song; other than the nice lyrics, it's about because of the key of the song that matches my voice just fine, so no adjusting, makes my life easier...LOLS. Unlike all the songs that I have recorded so far, some I even changed the key to the lowest possible. That baddd, huh. Hahaha.Phew, luckily it's my blog I can be "as funny" as I wish to be. Hahaha. O ya, I did it again. It's not JILL, it's GIL. If I record it the third time, I'm gonna make sure I won't simply change pronunciation again. Ehehe. I'm quite well-known for it now I think. Haha.You should be able to see the Play button below this, if not, u have to download Adobe Flash player available in the net. Alrighty...till next post...:))

Day to day I like to go through the status updates made by people in Facebook. I can see a pattern of Heartbroken in most of them. Whether they are currently going through the phase of being betrayed/ignored by someone they love, or being rejected by a potential lover, while the rest are still talking about old memories of tough heartbreak that they still fail to get over. Wow guys…What does that make this world?
Why must this happen in the first place? How does it start to go wrong, when everyone is looking for Love? And what are we doing? Isn’t heartbreaking totally the opposite? I tell you what’s wrong. In our quest to look for love, we are doing it ALL WRONG. When we start going out with someone, it’s not always for the right intention. Whether it’s infatuation or just lust, all are meant to be gone as quick as it comes. With lack of sincerity, we make promises, without the intention of keeping them just get the quick benefit of getting someone’s trust – build a make believe happiness that only lasts for a while and let tomorrow worry of its own trouble. Then, we are putting less effort to stay loyal to one. We entertain our wandering eyes, and getting the thrill of chasing another and another new person, because it feeds to our pride and ego. The farther we go with exploring possibility with someone new, the more pain we are collecting for our hopeful partner, which is just waiting to explode and make her/his world crushed in pieces. Does that sound familiar to you? Now you see why we are doing it all wrong. The Love becomes overrated, cos it’s NOT LOVE to begin with. Cos we tend to drift away from our relationship for all the wrong reasons. We know that nobody’s perfect, which means, if you can say your partner is not perfect, YOU are also far from perfect. But sometimes you judge your partner as if you are at a better human level than them. You love lies in the eyes, and not the heart. When there’s a problem, WE DON’T TRY HARD ENOUGH to work it out. What we see if to just call it a quit, and the excuse it that we have lack of understanding. The fact is that, our direction and destination have changed because of our own will.
I speak for the adults like you and me. Those who have underwent early teenagahood with loads experiements and self-findings. We get excused to make mistakes in that era. But not anymore. Now that we are totally aware of our deeds, we won’t just accidentally fail a relationship that we mutually start. It’s always because we fail to be loyal, we fail to be responsible, we fail to be sincere in what we say and do, and how we belittle the heart of the other person whose dream is built around our promises. And shamefully still, many are still overcame by lust, without thinking that losing control over our flesh desire is not a one-off crime. If we fail this one, we will fail again. Why, don’t you guys get tired of failing your relationship? Don’t you think it’s about time to finally let in the kind of love that our Creator made for us to have with one and only partner?
We have to change this, guys. We have to fix our ways! Now, please get rid of all the falseness and fakeness in your intention. Stop doing it wrong! Don’t even walk in a relationship you don’t intend to make last, don’t date a lonely person when the person’s can anytime be manipulated by your temporary need of companionship and if you think you can’t be loyal, don’t make promises, don’t even be in a relationship you are not ready for. And please, do not toy with God and Faith just to mislead others that you are worthy just to prove yourself to be totally unreliable – which means you are not just wronging human, but also your own God. We have to fix this guys. We need to turn things around. There’s a hope guys, there’s a hope. If we come back to the way of righteousness, God will help us heal this brokenhearted world into a world of peace and love. But first, we must correct our ways first. Lets do this together. God, help us to be righteous in our quest for Love. May you guide and lead us to fix our ways and do the right thing. Amen.

I was looking for a Birthday Prayer and I picked this one to share here. :))
It's my birthday, and the number just keeps getting bigger. Yet as "vast" and "great" as the sum of my years seems to me today, vaster and greater are my thoughts of you. The number of my years is calculated merely on terms of decades, but if I tried to "do the math" concerning your glory and grace, I'd have to count every grain of sand on every beach that has ever existed. With David I can honestly say, "How precious to me are your thoughts."
Father, keep on rescuing me from all wrong thinking about you. Keep showing me how little I really see and understand about the greatness of your love for us in Jesus. That won't embarrass me; it will truly thrill me. May the gospel keep on getting bigger and bigger and bigger.
It's a source of incredible peace and freedom to know that you've ordained all of my days for me. That feels not like unfair fatalism but rather Fatherly affection. I'll not live one day more or one day less than you decree, by your sovereign purposes and eternal pleasure.
There's a part of me that would like to turn the clock back for a possible "do-over," especially for certain stretches of my life. But then again, not really. Your name is Redeemer, and you're the God who restores years eaten away by locusts. I choose to rest in your love rather than stew in my regrets. I have great confidence and hope in your commitment to make all things new.
All I ask is that each additional day, week, month, or year your appoint for me in this world will be filled with a greater gasp of the only love that will never let go of me. By your Spirit, Father, continue to reveal to me how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ - the only love that surpasses knowledge (Ephesians 3:18-19). Everything else will take care of itself. I make my prayer in Jesus' matchless and merciful name. Amen.
It's nice, isn't it. You can read it too on your next Birthday :))

Finally, a Malay song. LOLS. Just another version of my rough bathroom singing so if it sounds so messy let it be, okay guys...hahaha. This song is good, in fact the best thing about the movie, yeah, even more than the sobbing dramas you can find there. Haha. Not really a tough song but my voice is just not made for high-pitch songs so I can just sing it for fun...ehehe. By the way, I found a translation for the song title goes with "LOVE AMID THE CRASHING WAVES" and Not "The Wave Of Miss" ah...LOLS. Direct translation doesn't do the Malay words justice guys so don't be too fond of it...hahaa
You know what you want in life. You definitely know. You also know that you made a lot of mistakes in life too. You certainly know that even how far you have come, you are never good enough on your own. And there’s this thing called destiny. We believe that God has a plan for the believers. Yes we believe in that. So, with all this knowledge, you know that what you want is not always what you need, and vice versa. With God’s wisdom, if we humbly come to Him, we know that He will show us the way.
So when you pray for something that you want, then the next thing, something appears in your life. But, it’s not what you want! But then it comes in such a manner that it can actually be fit into an answered prayer. Then with the knowledge that you never know enough, you just Believe that THIS COULD BE IT. You just make peace with new changes that come to you, thinking that it could be God’s answer that you’ve been praying for. How can you resist it? You just take the chance and pray to Him to guide you on what you should do with it. You adhere to it. When things go smoothly, despite your tendency of resisting it at first, you slowly accept that THIS IS PART OF HIS PLAN IN MY LIFE.
Without you knowing, you are slowly adapting to sthing which is outside your list of Wants. You never ask for exactly that but when it comes, you accept, because you have faith in Him, and you know you are not that smart to figure everything out on your own. Before you know, you have walked this path that you believe was His plan, so it should be The Best for you. With added confidence in your prayer for so long, to ask for His protection on your progress, yes, everything went smoothly. Might be stormy at times, but you managed to survive it each time. The more you believe that, YES, THIS IS WHAT HE WANTS ME TO DO.
Strange enough, after such a journey, something starts to go wrong. Of course, as usual, you will come to Him for guidance. Moreover, you know that IT CAN’T FAIL no matter how bumpy the road is. “Hey, It’s From God, He will help me through this.” With so much confidence, now you are facing a major setback. Oh come on, Not again. But that won’t scare you anymore. YOU HAVE GOD, remember? But, I am not sure how many of you who are exactly AT THIS POINT OF YOUR FAITH. That your situation just make you ask so many question, “Whatever happens to your plan for me, O God?”
Then you come to the end of the line of calling this battle a quit, then you look back, OH NO, I CAN’T DO THIS. IT’S GOD WHO BRING ME TO THIS. I MUST FIGHT!!!! Then you do your thing, fight for what’s right, but things are just don’t get better. It gets worse the more you fight. At one point, you just retreat, and turn your head up, Oh God My Lord, Tell Me How I’m Gonna Do This.
That painful moment of trying to sort out that THIS JOURNEY might afterall be A WRONG ONE. Suddenly your faith gives you a blurry sight – you almost could not see it! You flashback how long you have come just to be defeated and to start back a new journey. Why, After All The Thankfulness, After All The Prayers, Whyy? Whyy? GOD, IT’S YOU WHO MADE ME DO THIS!! WHYYYY…!!
A sense of guilt just hit you and right away you ask for forgiveness for having DOUBT. What will you do now? Be patient? Or just be brave enough to change direction from what you initially thought was guided from God? Yeah, you would risk a new beginning. BUT THIS IS NOT ABOUT YOU AND YOUR STRENGTH. This is also about the fight that you believe come from God which moving on means you declare nullification what you believed to be His plan for you.
Let His Mighty plan unfold soon!! This is the time when you have to renew your faith all over again! Oh Good Lord, Guide Us. Give Us Wisdom. Send Your Holy Spirit To Help Us Walk, Decide And Do According To You Will. You Bring Me To This, You'll Bring Me Through This! I Pray This In Jesus Name, AMEN.

Everyone knows that this life is anything but a fairytale. We are not a bunch of Princes Charming and His Cinderella. Cos if we are, these Prince Charmings will put his Cinderella at his castle, lavish her with love and necessity, treat her well – Happily ever after. Is this the case in today’s world? How are you treating your woman, men? Do you remember her sacrifices for you? How many times she swallowed her pride and ego just so she can give way to yours and so you can always be the one who wear the pants? Do you even notice how she’s waiting for you all the time when you are busy out there counting every attractive female your eyes can catch? Do you even care how she counts every minutes from the last SMS you sent her and how many times she goes through your old text when you busy with your activities that don’t even have anything to do with her? This is the same woman whose hope built around your promises. Your promises that you’ll be the one for her. Promises that she expects you to honour, and she has already started playing her part since the first day you said it. And renews it everytime you repeat them, that she can even remember the tone of your voice and the words that you use to speak them.
There are a lot of mistreated women in this world. The one who mistreated them, is none other than the man they love the most. It could be the father to their kids, the so-called future husband, the once dubbed the most romantic boyfriend, or any other name that they thought you deserved to be called. Even how many times you treat her bad, you break her hearts, how many nites she wets her pillow with the tears that you caused her, SHE IS STILL THERE. Do you know how many women out there who are standing by their man’s side, are actually getting a poor treatment from their man?
You can list the reasons why she’s not perfect. You can say that she might not be the most well-dressed lady you know, you might not like her hair as much as you like the hair of one of your officemates, maybe she is too talkative, maybe she demands your time more than your normal friends, maybe she makes you feel guilty all the times when you cannot comply with her small silly requests, oh heck, you can list a book-long if you want. So do you think you are that perfect yourself? Do you know that she will take a day off just so she can spend time with you when you are busy complaining when she requests to get a bit of your time after work? Do you know that she hates your bad temper and jealousy, oh she hates it so much, but she still looks at you as if you are the best guy that she has ever met in her life? Oh, do you think you think she likes your hair that much? She might not, but do you think she cares to even put it in her list? She doesn’t. She will tolerate that, and even more from you! THIS IS ABOUT A WOMAN AND HER LOYALTY.
A woman, with the weight of the world on her shoulder, dedicates her life to her man. She doesn’t want him to be perfect, but she still wants to love him anyway, Love him as perfectly as she could. And what you men do? You men are busy getting consumed by wordly temptations. It doesn’t need much to make you turn your back on “this angel” who cares for you, instead you are busy collecting points to love her less – Suddenly you can even go against your God by dishonouring the spouse and breaking all your promises to her, sthing which supposed to be honoured by someone who claims to have faith in God. To all the men who are mistreating their ladies, this is for you.
A Man Who Loves His God, Will Also Love His Woman. So do not claim that you are a man of God, when you can’t even treat your woman right. This is a slap of reality to all the men who think they can appear really strong and holy just by having faith on the lips and not on the actions. YOUR LADY DESERVES BETTER THAN THIS. Fix your ways, men. Go back “home”, there’s a woman who’s waiting for you. TREAT HER RIGHT. Be Deserving Of Her Loyalty.
1 Peter 3:7
In the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God's gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered.

I’m sure you do admit that you have some talents that your friends don’t have. Don’t you ever wonder why do you have those talents? Don’t you think they are given to you for a purpose? Or you think you since you don’t ask for it, you don’t necessarilly need to use it?
It just crossed my mind. There were times when I was put in a situation where I helped people with just listening to them and gave some piece of mind on how to solve their problems. They actually listened to me and applied it, and the next time they came to thank me. Now I remember again how I saved my aunt from wanting to commit suicide because she thought her hubby (my uncle) was cheating on her. And how I helped a customer from getting in a big mess after she fought with her housemate, and I said to her, “GO BACK AND SAY SORRY TO HER” and she did. She didn’t have to move out from the house at all! All her problems solved just by doing what I suggested. I also remember, how I was there to cheer up a guy who got dumped by her gf of 5 years and he almost could not face life. And there I was. Knowing that it won’t hurt for me to just cheer him up, I did and he moved on pretty easily and finally got his confidence back. Tho the ending was not so good because I almost victimized myself for being the substitute when I didn’t intend to go that far, but at least he managed to rationalized with his breakup and managed to approach a new relationship that is still going on well until now. I’m sure u guys have ur own story too. Can’t u see it that this is about life, how we cross each other’s path, most of them we just drop by and create some memories, before we continue with the journey. Of course we can’t stay for long. WE ALL HAVE A MISSION IN EVERY STATIONS. There will eventually come a time when we will finally stay at this particular station, a station we belong to be. I was wondering, maybe this is what they say by becoming “the instrument of God’”, that you come into someone’s life helping them with their situation, some you even help to change their lives to better!
Of course when you think about it, you’ll feel that you can be in a pitiful situation to be “used” for their own benefit, sometimes what you get back is nothing but hurt because not everyone appreciates what you do. We are only humans right. We are not a guardian angel where we are there only when we are needed and then forgotten until they get in trouble again. But I’m sure…sweet things are waiting for us. Especially when we accept the fact that we are just fulfilling our missions on Earth, to be there for one another. Not everyone will appreciate us, YES true. But don’t forget WHO SEND US? It’s Him :) Our rewards don’t come from humans, our rewards come from Him for He is so loving and so generous . The more good things you do, the better. Having a God like Him, you know that you’ll get rewarded even without asking for it. When you are busy asking people, “What are your gifts”, you just never know one day one of them will answer, “YOU”. You won’t always come as a helper, but You are actually a gift from God to someone special, and this someone special will be a reward God gives you, that all kinds of appreciation and love that you deserve to get will be flowed through the person. In the mean time, just be patient when not everyone will see “the gift in you” but keep doing good things. You’ll leave a mark in people’s life as you complete your missions. Remember, despite all your gifts, YOU ARE THAT GIFT ITSELF. God bless. :)

Another bathroom singing from me! Hahaha. I've been wanting to sing this song since the early year but the song kinda hard to learn so I sort of "gave up" on it. Hahaha. And guess what. I came across it again and decided to give it a try and viola! This time it will go up to the blog no matter what. Cos I like the message of the song to actually NOT GIVE UP. Remember from my latest voice post? I keep saying, Don't ever ever give up! Actually I have this song in my mind as I was saying that. Hehe. Now feel free to get inspired all over again. LOLS. Do Nott...I repeat, Do Nott Givee Uppppp! :))
God Bless Us All!

Just my version "bathroom singing" - so it is not supposed to be anywhere good...LOLS...I love singing and I have a nice new mic and a good recording software, I'm just testing around...Yeah right...hahaa. Just having fun guys... I know it's terrible, I used the lowest key and I delay the tempo one level down. Told u bathroom singing has no rules...LOLS
Some of you would answer YES. Right?
U don’t say that when you got bullied at school, u turned rebellious, u turned to gangsters for help to protect yourself, which then involved you in more crimes, like drugs, like robbery, then you quit school just because you decided it was not the place for you – you then became a full-time gangster because it makes u feel strong. Then you learn how it can earn u easy money, u then turned to brothel and prostitution business, involved in killing some bad guys, risked yourself getting killed, and finally, life takes its toll on you, you find yourself finding ur way back to righteousness. You want to change. Mess after mess, you start to get back the fruit of your choice – U suffer from the outcome. One day you stand at the front of your other fellow Christians who are waiting for your testimony, would u say everything happened to you was according to God’s plan?
I beg to differ. Just giving opinion as a layman, I would say NO.Since when that God teaches us to do all the things that the guy has been doing? Maybe how he got bullied at school was not his fault, but it’s his choice to choose how to react to it. God gives us the ability to CHOOSE! Of all the good things he could end up doing, he chose to be bad. Maybe he has reasons that are not known by others, maybe he faced some broken family problem, STILL, he could end up becoming a good man instead of complicating his life.
Maybe you have your own opinion that Yes, God runs every moments of our lives. And doesn’t matter what my argument is, My logic with God’s Logic are not the same. That I accept. But still, there are Bible verses that say it clearly that His plans will be laid upon those who TRUST IN HIM, who seek the truth in Him. As we know, we can fall into sins, we can even turn our back on Him anytime. And does God want us to sin? Of course He doesn’t. Most of the time, it’s our full will and consent that we do what we did. In a split second decision, we can decide to not go to church and go to shop instead. Maybe because we are lazy, or we are having doubts in faith, you name it. It’s so unfair that we think God already set out all the dull things we do in life when it’s only a matter of choice that we do what’s right.
One day we can ask for God’s direction in our lives, and He sent us wisdom and signs. Yes, God does that. But from there, you can anytime ignore His presence and get lost again. This world is just full of sins and temptations, it's just so easy to get drifted. God can be sitting just beside you and you don’t even care. So don’t go around telling people that all the mess in ur life now IS GOD’S PLAN, when it’s not. When you cheat your partner, it’s not God’s fault. When your lust is bigger than your brain, it’s not God’s fault, when you count your misery instead of your gifts, that’s certainly is not God’s fault. He can have the loveliest plan in your life, but are you following His way? If you don’t, How can that plan be revealed to you? Just like the non-believers. You do dare to say that for them to be nonbelievers and refuse to accept God is also part of His plan? When you say No to those who show you the right way, what about that?
So I want to tell u my dear friends, WE HAVE A SAY in what’s gonna happen next. It’s all a choice. Following God’s will ISN’T EASY. To stay faithful isn’t easy. So it’s not a surprise that not many have it. So when you do something really wrong in your life and still go around and talk as if you are the holy man just because you believe that everything bad you do has happened with God’s permission, while it’s your greed and human flesh that rule you, instead of God.
Good News: God is ever forgiving, He will receive us back. And He can use our current situation, no matter how bad it is, to work in a manner that will contribute to something good our lives. Nothing is impossible to Him, you believers know that!! Question is, how long and how are you are gonna lead that route? U have to turn back and make things right. God’s mercy is for all. Alleluia.
