I had a wonderful family holiday in Las Vegas, Nevada.

I remember a time when I was in the mission field. My stomach was not accustomed to the local cuisine and I had terrible diarrhoea. All I could think about was going back home and back to my comfortable surroundings. My prayer was "Lord, get me on the next available flight home." As I was walking along a dusty road, suddenly, I heard a choir singing with a loud voice a famous hymn called "I Surrender All". I knew without a shadow of doubt that this song was God’s reply to my prayer. God wanted me to learn about surrendering to His perfect will for my life rather than going my own way. I had to learn to trust in His unfailing love even in the midst of trials. God took care of all my needs as I surrendered my will to His will. I had a great time in the rest of the mission trip because I chose to follow God.

Proverbs 16:3 (New International Version)

Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.
Galatians 2:20 (Contemporary English Version)

I have died, but Christ lives in me. And I now live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave his life for me.

These two Bible verses really have spoken to me over the years about surrendering to God's perfect will. We need to commit to God in everything that we do so that He can bless us. We need to allow God to work through all aspects of our lives such as relationships, family, marriage, career, business etc. God's love, mercy and power should motivate us to trust in Him in every situation of our lives. God is faithful because He sent Jesus to die for us. Apostle Paul surrendered his life and life for Christ because Christ had died for him.
Living a life of surrendering to Christ will lead to freedom, liberty and joy to us on earth.

I went bike riding with my nephew and took some photos of a beautiful lake in California. I also took some photos of fast food restaurants in USA.


How do you read your Bible? Do you read it out of duty or obligation? Do you read it as if it were a history textbook? There is so much more blessings that God wants us to get out of His living words. God desires for us to love His words because it can brings life, direction, correction, prosperity and more.
My son, keep my words and store up my commands within you. 2 Keep my commands and you will live; guard my teachings as the apple of your eye. 3 Bind them on your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart. Proverbs 7:1-3

How do we store up the words of God? We memorise it. I remember in the early days of my Christian life, I carried small cards with Scripture verses and tried to memorise a Bible promise each day. Looking back, I am grateful for this practice because I can still recall the Scriptures that I have memorised and it brings great hope and strength in times of need in my life.

God words are essential for abundant life on earth and that is why God wants us to treasure it and store it up in our hearts.

The next time you read the Bible, allow the Holy Spirit to give you a new revelation to its meaning and application in your life.

You will never be the same when God's words are stored up and apply in your life for every situation.

The day has finally arrived, I landed in Los Angeles, California for the first time. Here are my first few photos of America.


I am writing this blog entry in Los Angeles, California. I am inspired to write about God's divine plans because I can testify about His goodness and faithfulness. I am always eager to know about God's divine plans for my life. In fact, one of the main reasons for me accepting Christ was to know and follow God's divine plans for my life. I was tired of living without purpose and meaning. I wanted something better and bigger than the empty way of life that I was living. I was introduced to Christ by a pastor who told me that God loves me and sent His Son, Jesus, to die for my sins to offer me a new life. This new life includes the forgiveness of sins, a relationship with God, following and living God’s divine plans, and eternal life.

Jeremiah 29:11 (New International Version)
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

After becoming a Christian over twenty years ago, I can testify that God's divine plans are good. God has so many great plans for every person on earth. When we follow God's plan, we enter into a wonderful destiny and future. It is a truth that applies even if we rebelled or live in ignorance of God’s plans in the past.

I want to encourage everyone to live in God's divine plans because you will never regret it.
