God is big

At Hillsong women this week, Donna Crouch said, "Some of you have given up on God, but God has not given up on you." Then on the weekend Phil Dooley's message was about God is big, but He is also into the details. From the vast of the universe, to the tiniest cells,electrons,etc. He's in charge of everything.

It's so easy to forget who God is and lose sight of what's going on in situations. Often I'll look at a situation where there's not much I can do about it and then I tend to jump to a conclusion that this is just impossible. My heart is so small that I dare not think that God who created the universe can do something about this situation outside my own little logic box.

God is big, and He can do big things, but He's short of people who have big enough faith for Him to work on earth......Oh Lord, please help!

Balance of life

Balance is an art. Life is like a picture. We're all given a different picture for each and every one of our lives. Balance is the decision of what colours we want to put in the picture.
Since we're all different, nobody can give anyone else the exact formula. Where in one picture red takes 90% of the weight, it might only take 3% in another picture, and they both can be masters pieces of art.
The art of life is really about how we "colour our world". God gives us a perfect picture, a masterpiece for each and everyone of us, but it's up to us to find out how to live out that picture, and how to balance all the colours in our lives.
Sometimes when we're predominantly in one colour, it's hard for us to recognise the importance of other colours. Say if I'm majorly red, I might be gifted and talented in red, and I have a passion for red, and all I tend to want is red. I might still be looking for more red. But if all I have is only red in the picture, it's not gonna be a nice piece of artwork. It's got to have other colours as well. Often if we're in red, then God will send us leaders, friends, especially our partners in other colours. Although it's a blessing, it's very hard for us to recognise. We tend to learn from and click to those that are the same colour as us. It's actually quite hard to submit to the other colours. But if we do, we'll increase the other colours in our pictures and allow God to make our lives more colourful.
Most of the pictures have a main predominant colour. Say it's mostly green, or mostly blue,etc. But the predominant colour looks the best on the base of a balanced mixture of other colours. If the colour overtakes all the other colours, it gives a wrong message and it won't be an enjoyable artwork to look at. Sometimes by adding an opposite colour will make the first colour more of it's character and stand out.
If there's a particular colour that you dislike most, but it's yelling out at you all the time, probably this is the colour that you'd need most to keep the sense of balance in your picture. If you've been craving for more white in the picture, you might find that God has been sending you black to make your white whiter, but you have been fighting against it and rejecting it... And then by the time we finally get the idea of black, and ready to settle for black, and getting more and more happier about black, we find that He suddenly says, Ok that's enough now, let's move on to green...
In an nutshell, God's the master of art. If we want the perfect picture in our lives, we've got to let God put all the all the colours in, and allow Him to put it the way just how He wants it.

Charles and Camilla

It seems like a love story of the century. I'm sure that being in the position as he is, Charles has been fighting numerous times trying to get out of this situation and to remain his peace. He must have been feeling guilty and trying to get back to his supposed life over and over, but the love is simply too strong to walk away and forget. If it's only an affair, then time would usually ease out. But after 33 years of turmoil and enormous pressure, the couple has managed to be faithful toward each other and kept the fire of romance and passion up for all those times. I just wish to see more married couples love each other like they do. Well, I certainly hope they'll keep loving each other passionately for the rest of their lives now that they're finally married.
Obviously Camilla is Charles' first love. And that first love has seen them through all these years and still alive. To anyone else, Camilla is just a plain lady that can be replaced by any other lady, let alone Diana. But to Charles, his life has been ruined for anyone else. His spirit has joined with Camilla no matter what the world thinks. Thinking from his point of view, the wedding is such a day of celebration. After all, she's all he wants. For a long time, he's a symbol of adultery, but in another sense, isn't he true to his own inner sense and faithful to his own true love? In another sense, this is even more of a fairy tale, that after 33 years they can still be so in love and so passionate.
I don't know what the church would think of him. But it's nice to see him smile again. In the end, the prince gets to choose who he loves and who he wants to marry. And that's what a fairy tale is all about, isn't it?

Holly Wagner is healed!

There was a shout of praise and joy at Hillsong women yesterday as Bobbie Houston announced the good report to everyone.
She woke up Wednesday morning with the thought,"It's a beautiful day! This is the day that the Lord has made, we will be glad and rejoice in it." Then while she was getting her morning coffee, Holly rang her and gave her the good news.
