Birth of a Ministry

I'm trying new ways to update my blog. Just discovered that I can actually update my blog via email, so I thought I'd give it a try.

Apart from that, I would like to put out a prayer request. I'm very close to starting a ministry again. But this time not the conventional way. I had my first meeting with a wonderful fellow Christian yesterday who shared the same vision of wanting to expanding the Kingdom of God. After the meeting, we both felt that it's definitely the birth of a ministry. The launch of this ministry can be as soon as the end of January. I would like y'all to pray with me that God's will
be done and that He alone will be glorified.

For obvious reasons, this of course will be a Christian music ministry, but main focus is on worship. It will be a place where worship resources are consolidated and distributed. My vision is to see worship teams being developed spiritually, biblically and technically. It's time we take it to the next level. I don't see why it should only happened in certain places of the world when I can see it happening daily right where I'm at. God trained David and refined 6 characteristics of David. Then David did the same with his generals and his army (which also doubles up as musicians for the temple). Wanna know more? Well pray for us and that we'll be able to come to your church to share with ya :)

Btw, we are also thinking of a name for this ministry. Please send me your suggestions. Looking forward to hearing from all of you. To God be the glory!

Tim's original worship song No. 9 ... With Hands Lifted High

Personally I love this worship song ... No! not because I wrote it, but whenever I start out my 'special time' with the Lord, I love singing this song. He's never failed to show up. This song is also kinda special to me personally. I was at a stage where I couldn't handle not being in the presence of God anymore. I was still working in the secular and another part of me knew my place is suppose to be in full-time ministry. I was so far away from the things of God, I was ashamed of even calling myself a Christian. But you know what ... God was not ashamed of calling me His son even though I turned my back on Him. I still remember very clearly how this song came about.

I was in my room watching tv and doing my usual thing after work. My kids were downstairs playing. It was a Friday night. My dad is a home fellowship leader (some call it home cell) and they were about to start their usual meeting. But that nite was slightly different from other nites cause my cousin Joe was with us in Malaysia (Yes, the same preacher Joe I talked about in my earlier posts). I went downstairs to get a glass of water as they started to worship. I heard Joe singing and could felt the passion that he has for Christ piercing through his voice. That automatically stirred up my spirit and I never felt as desperate as I did that nite to want to worship. But the songs that they were singing were kinda old and very much lingering in the outer courts. I was so desperate to get into His presence and started lifting up my hands ... and began to cry out to Him. Hence this song With Hands Lifted High was birth.

Here is something I would like to share with all of you and I hope that God will reveal more in time to come. Worship is not just for us to communicate to God, it is also for God to communicate back to us. Communication cannot be one way, if you are just singing and praying and not letting God respond back to ya, then you have entirely missed the point in worship. But that's not the point that I wanted to share, although it's important. Here's the point ... your passion for God can cause others to be stirred up. What is passion? Remember ... Christ says that He is looking for people that would worship Him in spirit and in truth ... When you worship in spirit and in truth, there's passion and when there's passion, there's evangelism during worship. Meditate on that and see how it links together. There's a lot more I can share with ya, it's a whole series of teaching by itself. May be one I day I'll get to share more with ya on this topic. Till then ... Worship Him in Spirit and in Truth!

Tim's original song No. 8 ... Children Are Innocent

Well I was spring cleaning some of my boxes and discovered some really old folders. Inside there were songs I've written that never really got recorded or played. Some of it I thought were quite ok. But I'll leave it to you to be the judge of it. Thank God for my wonderful wife though. I'm hopeless at keeping things. I've written so many songs before and I think I've lost at least 30% of it. Anyways, if you like these older songs, do leave note of thanks to my wife Christina for keeping it for me :)

This song was written when my parents' relationship was on the rocks. Then I started thinking if I was younger, how would I have felt and this song was birth. Funny thing is, my relationship with my wife went through the exact same thing and it was horrifying for my beautiful kids. I told myself, by God's grace, I will never want to put them in that kind of situation ever again.

Think about their innocence, think about their future the next time you have an argument with your love ones. Normally the ones that gets hurt the most are the innocent victims. If you see a pattern in your life against your parents or grandparents, sit down with your family tonite and pray. I encourage you to ask God to cut all soul ties between you and your forefathers all the way to your parents. Don't let their sins fall upon you and your family. Ask God to take over the Lordship and renew your relationship with a brand new start. God is faithful to make all things abound in you and your family. That includes love, peace, joy, hope ..... etc. If you need prayer, do leave me a comment. As a family we will pray for ya! God Bless y'all!

Tim's original worship song No. 7 ... I Put My Trust In You

I know, I know ... it's been awhile since I pen anything on the blog. Not that I've not been inspired to pen down a couple of my thoughts. But some of the things that I've been looking at are kinda sensitive and don't feel that it's time for me to share at this moment to the masses. It's misconception of certain verses in the bible that people (even my mom) have misused. But if you really want to know, you can always drop me a comment and we can share privately.

Well, I've been feeling kinda under the weather lately. In a way physically and emotionally tired. This whole ordeal with Homemaker in NSW and their repair company here (DACAPS) blew me off the charts. 6 weeks since they took my washing machine and everytime I called to get an update, I get the same answer. Until NSW got so embarrassed, they ask me to go sent it back to the store and get a new one. AFTER 6 WEEKS!!! Now DACAPS refuse to send it back to me and they insist that I pick it up myself eventhough they were the ones that took it from my house. When I told them the people is NSW says otherwise, they very rudely told me that they are their own boss and NSW can't make them. So now I have to ask my wife to take leave and look after my 2 year old son to sort it out with them.  The people at DACAPS are out rite inconsiderate and unhelpful. Well anyways, we'll be contacting the Department of Consumer and Employment Protection, see what they say ...

Ok ... back to the song. Amongst all the 'hoopla' ... I kinda gave a foot hold to the devil to step in. I started questioning God about whether I'm really called to go full-time into ministry and also started to doubt His anointing upon my life. I felt that I've not made an impact on anyone's life at all since my arrival. Thank God Chris (my wife for 11 yrs - Btw, this Saturday is our 11th anniversary) set me straight. Well, as a family we will be doing something about it. We came to a conclusion that I need to put an effort into letting people know that I exist here in Perth, instead of sitting at home waiting for something to happen. So the first step will be sending my portfolio to all the churches here in Perth to see if they are interested in having me full-time, part-time or as a guest speaker. Second is to burn the songs into CDs and send it out to as many recording labels as possible.  So please keep me in your prayers. At least if those are done then I can look to God and say I've been good stewart of what He's given me and now it's His turn to make something our of it. So this song is just to remind myself to Put My Trust In Him, keep my eyes focused on Him and not to be distracted! I apologize for the quality of my voice on the recording though, I had to do it early in the morning when all have gone to sleep. So can't hit certain notes. God Bless!

*Note ... I re-recorded the song cause I felt that it was a bit too rush. Now better quality.
