"for you are with us" - ENCM x FCC


A post shared by Tim Lim (@timlim12) on
I guess this is what church is all about, what is worship is all about -- declaring how great is our God together!

And also, a taste of how amazing doing co-writing.

This song was written with my best bud Neil (of RELENT). There's a lot of amazing stories tied to this composition and to see this happen is a blessing to me.

I believe the song very much reflects our heart that whatever happens, we can trust in God who is with us through every season.

It's a blessing to see how both churches able to bring out the message of the song, so kudos to ya all!

So honored to know how this song is being impactful. I can't wait to hear and watch their live recording mix of the song as ENCM did a full recording of it recently (thus the footage here).
Meanwhile, may God continue to use this gift I have for His kingdom.

All glory to God!

8th anniversary of THIS ROAD

WOW.


8 years.

8 might be auspicious for Asian context but like I always say, anniversary always gives me the opportunity to look back and be thankful for everything.

I think over the past 8 years, I have said my "thank you"s and sharing thoughts about my journey as singer-songwriter a lot already. The message would be the same though this year, but to be honest I wouldn't be at where I am today without your love, support, advice, pushes, pain, tears and prayers. Like anyone else, I always struggle with a lot of thoughts and sometimes it takes a lot out of me to stay strong. That being said, as long as I have life, I will give my best.

In an ideal world, I would wanna do a party or do something crazy to mark the anniversary. Actually more of thanking you all so much for everything. Maybe someday it will happen, but in the crazy world of uncertainties, everyday I learn to trust God for the best, and He will always provide.


So cheers for 8 years of THIS ROAD and hopefully, THIS ROAD will be a journey that will never end.

awesome God

Recent times, I am often reminded of the beauty of worship songs.

I had this conversation with some folks about songs that touched their hearts. One fella mentioned it was "awesome God" where he heard it few years ago on a Sunday service which so happened I led that song. Apparently, he searched for it and looped it all the time, and that song brought him closer to know God.


To be honest, that song is very simple, in terms of lyrics but yet it's powerful song. It reminds me very much of the power of worship songs -- never doubt how those songs can work among His people especially songs that it's about God.

May this testimony encouraged us worship leaders in choosing our songs and also songwriters as we compose songs.

Worship is all about Him.

backing track


A post shared by Tim Lim (@timlim12) on
Backing track was used on Sunday morning.

Even though we have been doing this every now and then, it's always an opportunity for the worship team to learn and explore. It's always a fun and enriching experience for us. Proud of the team for their effort and creativity for God.

songwriting reminder

It feels as though it was God's way of reminding me to keep writing songs that would impact people.

A post shared by MamaWhale (@mamawhaledota) on
Last night, Van Whale send me her Instagram posts about her short cover of my original song "Lost in love/Amazing Grace". Thank you very much for it. Lovely.

Totally encouraged by it to know how my songs have been a blessing. Best is yet to come, I always believe.

all is good

Often, I am asked "how's church/fcc/ministry?" and usually I respond by saying "all is well, all is good".

truth to be told, nothing else to answer than it's good because for me, God is always good. All these belong to Him so all is always good.

at the end of the day, people come and go but God is the constant center of it all.

So yea. All is well, all is good.

weekend blessing

This video really made my day. Thanks to my buddy Neil for this video.

A post shared by Tim Lim (@timlim12) on

So blessed to hear the song we co-wrote is being sung live at his church. Sounds amazing as I hear it and I pray this song we co-wrote will be a blessing to many.

I am vindicated to sing this at FCC someday soon. Yes, someday.

breaking my habit

The short break that I took recently helped me to digest some thoughts and deal with some questions I have about things around me, with a different perspective. That's why retreat is important and I thank God for that grace.

A lot of share but here's a few thoughts :-
a) Be vulnerable and open about your issues.
b) Be strong and face life with courage. There's so much we can do and wanna do but remember, we cannot please everyone.

Anyway, I hope I can drop a few notes every now and then.. meanwhile, keep hustle and thrive on.

Cheers.

5th anniversary

A post shared by Tim Lim (@timlim12) on
Can't believe it's been 5 years since the 2nd album was out -- "the day after".

Quite appropriate that my song TODAY was aired last week in a local podcast.

There was so many tears and sweat involved. There was so many joy and gratitude involved too.

Looking back, I believe all is worth it even though there's a lot of things happened behind the scenes, especially stories and testimonies. This journey has never short of hardwork and heartaches. 


Perseverance has always been the key for me.
 

My encouragement to you all, no matter which path you are in, stay strong and pursue your God-given dreams with faith and hope. 


As much as today's news have been overwhelmed by the passing of Chester Bennington, it's a reminder that life is short and we should spread love instead of hate.

His talent are among those who inspired the singer-songwriter like me and I pray these albums and songs will inspire more people out there that life is worth living.

It has been an incredible journey since and I want to thank all of you for the love shown. Looking forward to greater things ahead.

Greater things are yet to come.

"TODAY" on local podcast


It's any songwriters' dream to have their own songs to be aired in public so really, all glory to God!


I've been waiting for times like these and thank God for the strength to persevere. Thank you Rhema Radio for featuring the song that pretty much captures what life is all about and in fact, one of the lyrics in this song reflects my heart that my song will be on air someday. You can say my faith, dream or prophecy came true!

What a blessing. I believe more will come, till then, let the music play and share the good news yo!

Father's Day

For Father's Day this year, I presented the cover "good good Father" live. I did this song live last night, a song that reflects the father's heart. A well known song by Houseflies II and made famous by Chris Tomlin and other Christian bands.

A post shared by Tim Lim (@timlim12) on
This song always hits me as it reflects what a father we have in heaven. Loving and faithful. A great inspiration to all earthly fathers.

Blessed Father's day to my dad, dad-in-law, all my friends who are dads and every dads out there.

Video credit by my wife @audreychchan. If you overheard some backup vocals somehow, it's basically her and friends around her singing along. Haha.

Cheers to all dads and may God bless you all.


Anyway, I recorded the cover last year actually and hope you can enjoy it again.

12.06


I think this picture best captures what's my life is all about -- loving God, loving life, loving music, loving MU.

I admit there are days where I literally forgotten how old I am. Maybe because there's so many exciting things in life. Maybe there's a lot things happening around me. Maybe I am trying to take life as it is. Maybe I been spending a lot of my time with young people.

So, I guess it's good that I am reminded how old (or how young) I am. At the same time, I am always reminded that God is always faithful and good.

No matter what the future holds, I believe the best will come.

There's a Switchfoot song that goes like "life is short, i want to live it well". It's true, life is too short to spend on negativity so let's get the positive vibes going. It's not being naive but knowing that we can make it through life when we stay strong.

Thank you all for the love on my birthday. Cheers and much love to ya all.

DEYC2017

It was a blessing to spend past few days at #deyc2017ccl.

Crazy yet powerful time of worship, plus the opportunity to share life with youths.

After "resting" two years, I am back attending DEYC2017.

The journey begins with some chilling around KK.

Some shots of the camp...

Avengers assemble!!! Seriously, our group name is Avengers. That's what happen when you give someone like me the freedom to name my group. Hahaha.

Anyway, had a wonderful privilege to lead and supervise these young people during this camp. May God bless you all to be a shining beacon in wherever you are

Also, privileged to work with these folks in worship team. Worked and rocked hard. Hahaha.

video

Overall, it looks and feel simple camp but it feels very meaningful for the campers. Things can get better though. May you all continue to shine for Him in years to come.

Thank you for the memories, DEYC2017.

TLog episode 1



Many years ago, I love editing and recording videos until recent times, I got a bit lazy.

Well, I told myself, I can't be lazy anymore but to continue to put my skills to good use. So, that's why I "reboot" or "restart" my effort in vlog too.

A simple vlog that covered last Thursday's Heartcore gig. While you munch your lunch, enjoy it! I promise there's nothing that will make you vomit your food.

Do feedback to me if you like it, but I think there's more to come.. haha..
