The steps of a righteous (justified in Christ) man are really ordered by the LORD. We can plan and plan, but HE can change the plans. When we are abiding in HIM, HE will lead us to what HE wants us to do and it's always beautiful. Time and time again, the LORD has shown this in my life. It is not difficult to follow HIM. HIS yoke is truly easy and HIS burden is light. HE always leads us gently yet surely.
Really praise and thank the LORD!

Friday 9/11 was my offday. In the afternoon, i went to visit Shane at his father's wake. It was a surprise for me to find out that i've met his mother before. And it was five months ago, at the same place, where Ian's wake was. His mother and Ian's mother are from the same church and cell group. i thank the LORD for the time of sharing with Shane. i was
so encouraged and blessed by his faith and love for the LORD!
my evening plan was the usual visit for ministry at CDC every Friday. however the Spirit prompted me to visit at Shane's father's wake again. so i went. later i had such a great time of fellowship and sharing with Shane's mother. And i know that it was what the LORD wanted me to do and HE is pleased with that.

Today, i had planned to attend the funeral service, but the Spirit prompted me to change my plans and go for ministry at CDC. When i was there, i planned to just visit one ward and return to help in pasting the stickers for the flowers for sale on World Aids Day. after the first ward visit, some sharing with 2 patients and a massage done, i just sensed the
Spirit telling me to continue and go to the next Ward 76. i went there with Chee Meng. At our first stop, during the visit, Chee Meng suggested we pray for the patient. i asked the patient if he wants us to pray for him, he said yes. After the prayer, i sensed his heart was opened to the LORD and the Spirit led me to ask him if he wanted to accept JESUS. it has been weeks i have been visiting this same patient but i didn't have such leading before. most of the time when i see him, i just talked with him, encouraged him, hold his hand as comfort, and pray with him with his consent. Anyway, i was so glad when he agrees and say yes to accepting JESUS in his heart. As his condition didn't allow him to talk much, i told him this, you just agree with me and say "Amen" whenever you believe and agree. And he did.
I'm so glad he is saved and to see the joy on his face. Knowing that he has received JESUS in his life gives me so much comfort and joy - really made my day!

Sometimes, somethings that seem logically right to do with men, may not be what the Spirit wants at that time for HE has better plans. i just wanna testify of HIS goodness - the way HE directed my paths, how HE led me to follow HIM in the changes, to do the right thing at the right time. Bless the LORD & Praise HIM!!
