Something to reflect.

John 16:33

 "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
--- John 16:33

Still one of my favourite verses in the Bible.

So we all got into this whole Easter feeling-- celebrative and all but once the dust has settled, is our life really like what Easter all about? That we are alive and have a victorious life in God?

Look at the world around us. Sometimes we do get affected by it, like it or not, from the smallest of details in life to major world happenings. You wonder where's hope in the midst of darkness.

Easter reminds us that in darkness, a light has come to shine upon us.

That's why I loved this verse very much. He conquered death on the Cross, and so nothing is impossible for Him.

And we can be sure that we can face each day with God because He lives.

colossians 3

Post-Easter verse that kept me encouraged and reflective... 

"Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory" -- Col 3:1-4

Because of the Cross, now we have a new life. Those verses were enough to reminds us that our lives will never be same because of Jesus

To sum it up, we are asked to set..
1) eyes on Him
2) minds on Him
3) life in Him

May your life be victorious in Him :)

Glorious Ruins -- EASTER 2014 cover

How's the weekend for you guys? how's Easter for you?

Hope you have a meaningful Easter so far. I myself having a tiring but an awesome Sunday.

As promised, as previewed, as mentioned.. here's this year's Easter cover from me. First video from the land of Sabah! :D

Glad to be able to work with my awesome mate Sam Vun (nonsensei production) and also a talented pianist Deborah Ho for this video. Thanks for your time and effort to make this cover happened!

I guess it's fitting that as we are nearing the end of the day, it's good to reflect the message of the Cross and know that because of Him, we have a hope that last for eternity.

To quote Hillsong's devotional material for this song --
"The prophetic message of Isaiah 61 promises a future hope. Just as the ashes, symbolic of mourning and loss, are transformed into a crown of beauty, God works our struggles into beautiful stories of good triumphant over evil. When we are shattered, God lovingly restores our lives, putting our brokenness together again. When the harsh desert sun beats down, we find shelter in God’s protective span."

This song is one of my favourite recent Hillsong track. Hope you all will enjoy that cover and be encouraged.. well.. feel free to leave your comments and if you like me to do more covers, let me know too!!

Also, feel free to share this video around!

cheers. much love!
