computer died :(
current mood: thirsty
current song: sounds coming from brother's CPU
my computer at home died... i don't know what happened. it was working fine all of yesterday... then during the night, i switched it on again, and halfway while it was loading, a high pitched "eeeeeeeeeeeeeee" sound came out from the CPU and everything on the screen went blank.
after that, each time i try to switch on the comp, the eeeeeeeeeee comes on... scaring me because it sounded like it's going to explode any second! hee.
anyways... hopefully my brother can cure whatever's ailing that girl soon... meanwhile, i have to use my brother's computer... hmmm which is rather... dusty. i mean, i can even see a layer of dust on the screen... and a layer of dust over the keyboard... despite the fact that he uses it everyday!
I have been thinking about Christians who are living in persecuted places... some of the horrors they face everyday are things we can never begin to imagine. My good friend led me to a great website with lots of resources on this http://www.persecution.org
They are amazing people... honestly i know i will not be able to take that kind of persecution, maybe that's why im borned here in Singapore. A few weeks ago our pastor showed us a tape on persecution and how some of the Christians overcome it... their testimonies were amazing and the grace of God was so evident in every incident they went through. I guess if God allows you to be in that kind of situation, He will supply all you need to get through it...
Yesterday, i had dinner with a good friend and she was sharing with me that her greatest fear in life was for Jesus to reject her after she dies and meets him. I was surprised because that was one of the things that i really think a lot about... and really that is something much more terrible, unimaginable than death itself.
All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised;they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth... Instead they were longing for a better country - a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them. - Heb 11:13-16
