sharing at ASC ENG youth

For past 2 weeks, I had the opportunity to share with English youth fellowship at All Saints KK about worship. It was an enriching experience to share what worship is.

I am still learning though about worship and preaching. Anyway, hopefully I have time to share my sermon points here.. and share more thoughts on worship in this blog. That's what this blog about, I admit busyness has kept me away from sharing. Learning to manage my time though.

Cheers. Have a wonderful weekend

"victory" by Hillsong college

Words and Music by Benjamin Hastings, Matthew Sztyk & Seth Simmons

Verse 1: 
Born into the hands of sin
Crippled by the shame within
Broken heart and restless soul
I was lost out on the open road

Verse 2: 
Beaten on that bloody day
On his back a world of pain
Clinging to that cursed tree
Jesus bled and died for me

Victory Victory
Conquered death
Set me free
Victory Victory
Jesus alive in me

Verse 3:
Three days on the stone gives way
Ain’t nothing but an empty grave
Gather all the sinners ‘round
Tell them what great love we’ve found
Tell them what great love we’ve found

Lead me to the water deep
In the gracious current I’ll sink
I will rise dead to my sin
Christ in me and I in Him

"When we come alive" by Switchfoot

gotta love Jon Foreman's song writing and his reflection.

Here's an article he wrote in reflect to one of Switchfoot's new single 


"Life is a concept, not a reality." -- Ferris Jabr
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.
What does it mean to be alive? Is it breath? Growth? A steady succession of thoughts, feelings or actions? Scientists have no definite answer to the question. They say life is a process, not just a specific collection of materials. Bacteria, plants and humans all demonstrate radically different ways of being alive. So the question comes back to you: How do you define life? In many ways, the answer will come to define you.
For me, there is a dramatic difference between thriving and just surviving: life abundant and mere existence. There have been low moments in my life when I felt like I was slowly dying, just wasting away. Yes I had a pulse, but my potential felt untapped. The struggle for beauty, strength and truth left dormant while I drifted into the grey, meaningless tedium of the clock. "That he not busy being born is busy dying."
These low moments contrast sharply with the times in life when I feel invigorated, fulfilled, and hopeful. These are the moments when I come alive. Think back to a moment in time when you felt more fully alive than ever. You feel a certain spark in the air, as if the sun has come out from behind the clouds and your heart is beating for the very first time. Think back to your first kiss, or the first day of school. Are your palms sweaty? Your body tense? Your eyes wide? The colors in the air are unlike anything you've ever seen? 

I suppose what I'm talking about here is a qualitative element of living -- abundant life, not just a pulse. You'd think this higher quality of life would be found among the fortunate few -- the good looking, talented, folks with some cash to spend. Ironically, this abundance of life is rarely found in the places I would expect to find it. Laughter, joy, purpose, calling -- I tend to find it in unexpected places.
I think back to some of the most generous people I've ever met. I have found more often the poor are much more generous than the rich. And, the same with the healthy - two friends of mine with the best dispositions are fighting cancer. And the same goes with the perspective of the blind, or the wisdom of mentally handicapped, the courage of the weak.... the list goes on and on. My friend Jeremy doesn't have the use of his legs anymore and yet, his indomitable spirit refuses to quit. He surfs, he climbs mountains, he road-bikes - all without the use of his legs. Even in his wheelchair, my friend Jeremy has more mobility, traction, and drive than almost anyone I know. He lives life to the full: unencumbered with the obstacles and risks at hand.
Because life is a gamble. It's an enormous risk to enter into this world, to leave the womb and take a breath. But here we are -- the risk takers. The Living. The loving, risking, hopeful community of humans, breathing this air somewhere between the womb and the grave. We might have our eyes on the infinite, and yet we are bound to the present tense. Our lives are found only in this specific moment, only in this present passage of time. And in our mortality, we find that any of our greatest moments come only at a cost. There is risk involved. To love is to risk. To fight for what you believe in is a risk. To dare to change yourself or the world around you -- it requires a commitment beyond the risk.
Everyone has excuses, but I've found that my excuses make for lousy stories. My favorite stories to tell are the ones filled with both my bold failures and successes -- laughable attempts to get to places just beyond my reach. When we come alive we are stretched to become more than we were. When we come alive we are thankful for what we have. When we come alive we are bold in our love. When we come alive we gain a perspective that was lacking before. Because life is both a choice and a gift -- we seek after it and it comes to us.
The meaning of life... Maybe it varies for all of us. But if the meaning of life cannot be answered by the scientists or the philosophers, then it's up to the rest of us to define what it means to be alive. We, the living, answer that question every day -- not with our words, but with our lives. Let us show what life means to us with our actions. Dreaming and hoping and reaching forward - we live our lives in the present, wide-eyed and expectant. Is life a dream? If it is, it's a dream yet unrealized. The depths of this life have yet to be found. The highest peaks, the furthest reaches. Maybe abundant life has yet to happen. What does it look like when we come alive? Let's find out.

worship leading

Tuesday, September 9, 2014


It started off as a dream. Later on, it became a reality.

Sometimes it feels like yesterday. On 9th September 2009, I released my first album – THIS ROAD

As I was young and starting to indulge myself in song writing, the sense of doing an album dawns on me. It’s like my dream to do so, just that I am not sure in capacity.

Thanks to encouragement by friends and being inspired by many local artists’ adventure, I took the step of boldness to do my first album. Trusting it is all God’s plan, I embark on this journey, knowing it won’t be easy. That is why my first album is entitled THIS ROAD.

It’s been 5 years. I remembered the launch vividly. I never forget everyone who came, everyone who supported me, and everyone who encouraged me. Because of all of your little support, here I am writing this note of thanks. Because of all of you, there was a follow-up album – THE DAY AFTER (released in 2012), there’s tours, and seeing how the music reaching to people I myself haven’t met yet, impacting lives in one way or another. I am still amazed that even till today, some people still talk to me about the first album and how much it impacted them. Testimony like this really spurs me on and at the same time, acknowledging that indeed it’s the man upstairs who makes it all possible.

One of the many frequent questions I get for the past few years is will I released another album. Time can only tell. To be honest, I am not sure. But what is certain is I will still be doing music, in one way or another. It’s a passion that never dies.

That’s where this online EP comes in. To celebrate 5 years of the first album release and also a big thank you to all of your support throughout the years.

Here is the link : https://soundcloud.com/timlimproject/sets/tl-online-ep

This EP contains 5 songs – some songs you have heard before online and 2 new songs I wrote in recent years. I want to thank Lo Shi Seng and Bryan Limus for helping me out in making those songs becoming a reality. All the songs were recorded at Shi Seng’s humble recording studio and Bryan Limus helped in mastering some of the tracks.

As these song is on soundcloud, feel free to loop it as much as you can.If you want the songs as a mp3 and want to play them at your own convenient, you can email me at timlim1206@gmail.com or contact me then I will send you the songs. If you are convicted to buy these songs from me, well, just let me know. I have no fix price for my songs – you can buy these songs at any price. Basically my concept is like an “online tip jar”.. just tip if you love the songs.

I know some of you ask why I don’t sell it on itunes or spotify or something. It’s a long story to tell but at the end of the day, I guess the personal touch between me and you is vital for me, and I admit I have a niche market for these songs.

That aside, I hope you enjoy this online EP. I hope these songs will be a blessing to you, keeping you excited about what’s next. Most of all, it is to thank all of you. Yes, the online EP is dedicated to all of you.

Much love
