BELATED LOVING DATO' FATHER'S JULIEN - 7TH ANNIVERSALLY AT SEPT 11, 2011

A very warm welcome to this uplifting blog,

As September 11 is approaching soon, many of us may recall the memorable day when the US was attacked by terrorists in her homeland where many thousands of innocent people were killed.


On the other hand, that day also reminded me of a great figure, Dato' Father A. Julien ( Feb 25, 1917 - Sept 11, 2004) who was called back to the Lord on Sept 11, 2004. See the photo yourself.


As such, this Sept 11, 2011 is coming to be his 7th anniversary. Thousands of people turned up during his funeral and many still remember him for life. I write about him, not because both of us have the same birthday or his Chinese name is the same as my Chinese sir name. But far more than these commonalities we both have. Please read further, you will then discover how he had impacted my life.


To read more about his background, please click the link below:-














He had touched many thousands of peoples' heart especially the Chinese community in Malaysia, who did not believe then that he, a foreigner, would set up the Chinese school in foreigner's land. With the grace from the Lord, he was able to sustain and endure all the pains and discomfort during the period when he began to deliver his mission. Thank God that he eventually delivered his mission that turned so many peoples' heart from disbelief to belief. He then gained an honour and was well regarded as a highly respected figure by people from all walks of lives. For those who know him well, will not have a dispute about it. Please come forward to praise him that he so truly deserve.






I can't imagine what many of us would be if he had not built the Chinese school in this land. As such, we are indebted to him very much and wouldn't be able to repay him all of our lives. He had also touched our lives so much and not one of us will forget him. Though he had gone, his spirit remains. He will be remembered forever. It is my great pleasure to have a chance to write a small column in my blog so as to give him an honour he well deserved.






I recalled that he, in his life time, he will always stand by to extend his help to anyone in need. He knew that majority of the students are from poor families and he always gave us encouragement to do better in our lives. He always cultivate good values into our lives. I must say that his motivation and encouragement had really made me do the extra miles. I must thank him for my success, which would not have been achieved without his efforts. He is one of the great people who really had a great impact on my life.






With this in mind, I know there is no way I can pay him back whatsoever he had done for me. At least, I will follow his footstep to give back to the society what I have been benefiting from. The articles which I share with you from day one is also the way I had learnt from him. By doing so, I, at least feel much better by playing my small part to uplift others who may need it. This is another way for me not to put his efforts and actions into waste.






Last but not least, I hope more people will step forward and follow his footsteps to leave a resounding good legacy behind, exactly like what he had done for many of us.






Thanks and together we will make a better tomorrow for the human beings in this planet. His departure is a great loss to Malaysia as a whole, particularly Penang where he had built several schools there.






Though he is gone, his spirit is still with us forever. Thousands of people still remember him despite he had left this planet more than 6 years ago. Our school even built a statue to remember him. No doubt all these things cannot match his contribution to our society as a whole.


His humble personality and smiling face always enlighten us. I must say that He is a man of great honour, who never expect any reward for his good work. By doing so, he gain substantial respect from anyone who had dealt with him one way or the other.






For students, I hope that this article will in some way encourage you to be better persons.

LET US BE HIS VESSELS

HAPPY DAY TO YOU,


Thank you so much for joining my blog.


As some of you may be well aware that I am always so excited to share with you what I'm doing on the web.


First of all, I must say that my life is not my own, but it belongs to God, who has created me in the first palce. After my soul seeking journey, I am, just like some of you here, I write to share with you how to take your life's Mission for Christ and spread it like wildfire across the internet. To me, this is the right way to thank and glorify Him, and not me.


As reported in my preceeding articles, my life changed dramatically when I accepted Him. Since then, He has shaped me to be stronger and healthier to overcome whatsoever challenges in the future. I must admit that He never abandon me no matter what situation I am in. At times, it is my choice of not trusting Him that caused me to stumble. After numerous revelations, I discovered my true self and begin to draw His grace to do whatsoever I need to stay right with Him. I realised he truth of His words and put them in practice in my daily life. The more I submit to Him, the more I realise that I am able to accomplish more with less. At the end of the day, I still have so much energy. That's means He worked and it was not my work. This is a miracle and seems illogical to us. Yet it is the truth. In short, this is just a suspension of natural law, but the operation of higher law- Divine Law, so to speak. This is in line with his advocate that we by our means can not add any value to anything, but relying on His grace will make all things possible. He does not insult us, but due to our limited knowledge we are ocasionally blind to the truth.


He made us conquerers so long as we commit to Him wholeheartedly with our minds and souls. We will then achieve so much more in our life, do you agree?


As such, let us stay united through Him and let Him guides us to make our mission a reality so as to glorify Him and not us. Let His mission shines through the message of Christ and let us be used by Him as His vessels to do His will at the end of the day.


I look forward to getting to know you and your experience.


Your chief Servant,


James Oh

ALIGN TO GOD'S PERSPECTIVE

Happy day! Friend,

Heavy rains remind us of challenges in life. Never ask for a lighter rain. Just pray for a better umbrella. - That is attitude.


When flood comes, fish eat ants and when flood recedes, ants eat fish. - Only time matters. Just hold on, God gives opportunity to everyone!


Life is not about finding the right person, but creating the right relationship, it's not how we care in the beginning, but how much we care till the very end.


Some people always throw stones in your path. It depends on what you make with them. A Wall or a Bridge? - Remember you are the architect of your life.

Search for a beautiful heart, but don't search for a beautiful face. Coz beautiful things are not always good, but good things are always beautiful.

It’s not important to hold all the good cards in life. But it’s important how well you play with the cards you hold.

Often when we lose all hope & think this is the end, God smiles from above and says, 'relax dear it’s just a bend, not the end.' - Have faith and have a successful life.


One of the basic differences between God and humans is, God gives, gives and forgives. But the human gets, gets, gets and forgets.

                                           Read


                                       Thoughtful


Happy


                                              and


                                           Lovely


                                       From our articles






                                          It has given you

                               what it is you truly want

SOUL SEARCHING JOURNEY

HI EVERYONE,



It is a common mistake that we need to spend so much of time focused on building relationships with other people in order to achieve Success. What is the most important relationship of all, which is always more than often neglect is the relationship with our own self.



At this point you might ask yourself, what am I talking about? Though I'm with myself 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, however, I know very little about my own self until I have been transformed by my own soul searching journey couple of years ago.



Prior to this, I must admit that I am just like majority of people who are so worked up in their own lives that they've forgotten who they truly are. When someone asks me to introduce myself, I normally respond by telling him what I do or where I live? These are certainly important aspects of my life, but do not truly reflect me.



I often identify myself with my roles or my career that I often lose track of myself. I do not know whether you have discovered your true self or not? At that time I forgot who I wanted to be, what I truly dreamt of becoming, what I love and value. In effect, I've forgotten my "self." You may be wondering what "self" we're referring to here.



I have buried my authentic self so as to please other people, or to look good AND to be socially acceptable. To me, the effort to maintain this image not only requires too much energy, yet it is both draining and self-defeating. It took me lots of courage and time to step free of the scripted life I've been living and embark on my journey to search for who I am really in the depth of my being. I slowly peel away everything that is not essential and discover my authentic identity. I reclaimed the person the Creator truly wants of me and I find the journey very fulfilling and truly free. With the help from God that I am being transformed and rediscovered my true self. Without believing in God, I would not be able to do it by my own ability.



I remember what's most important in my life - I live for a specific purpose and love to live a meaningful life. Remember my hopes and dreams. Discover or rediscover my deepest yearnings. in order to do this, I embarked on a psychological search-and-rescue mission or soul searching journey to comb back through my life and recover my joy, wisdom, passion, enthusiasm, self-confidence, vitality - the threads of my true self that I had lost along the way.



I took my courage, commitment and perseverance to craft the life I love, most of which I have now. I share this with you with the objective that you too will make the call now to be your authentic self. I am now persistently connecting with my authentic self and reclaiming my true joys and passions that made me able to share with you all these while.



Since then I never regret and am able to do and achieve much more with less. That's something I would never have thought off and contradicted my initial belief. I also realise that I am able to do something what I would never have thought I could do. Amazingly awesome.



Folks, what I share now are something real and deeply inside me that would not be revealed unless the person is being transformed.



God Bless you all.
