It's New Year and I'm Nostalgic

I remember the days of long ago; I meditate on all your works and consider what your hands have done. Psalm143:5  (NIV)

It's only five days till the New Year. I'm Nostalgic.  I remember God's goodness especially in my marriage.

You bring a gift. They bring theirs, then the exchange.  Sometimes you are assigned a person to exchange with; sometimes you get to pick the gift you want.

While listening to them prepare for their sessions, I couldn't help but think of the misconceptions people (young and old) have about sexual sin. I realized how these misconceptions most of the time, lead us away from the freedom we so desire to have. Here's what came to my mind:

When you think you are following Jesus but you are really not

We had the special privilege of having Nixon Ng, one of our best leaders in Victory come and preach at our Youth Service Last night. God spoke a very clear message about LORDSHIP through him.
