Care group outing to Sg. Lembing was the great one that I ever had. We were able to see God's wonderful creation in this place. How on earth that someone could say all these were created through big bang? They just deny the existence of God. Took one day off just to see these beautiful scenery was well worth! We should do it at least once a year. Reached the cottage almost 11pm. Slept early and got ourselves ready for the journey to see the rainbow waterfall. Tourists commented this place is a beautiful place where we are able to see multiple rainbow at once. We took a 4 wheel to transport us to one point and hike up to the waterfall. Reached the waterfall after a hike at approx 45mins. We could only see one rainbow instead multiple when we reached. Somehow I managed to see two rainbows at the same time and I was in between the rainbow. I see true colours! 

This reminds me Genesis 9:13-17 and it says I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.” So God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on the earth.”

As it is written, rainbow is symbolise covenant that made between God and mankind. We often doubt God's power. For example, we prayed so hard for the coming exam and study so hard for it. Result coming out in a week or so.. We start to doubt, whether or not God will give us As' or even pass the exam? So where is our faith since we have prayed and trust God will make the ways. Basically this is our human tendency to doubt. It's actually a choice for us to make whether to have faith or not. In fact, we should have faith in Him at all time. He will never fail us, he will never leave you nor forsake you. Be humble and come near to Him and He will come near to you. Be humble before the Lord and He will lift you up! Remember that God Himself through Jesus Christ has fulfilled all the prophecies in the old testament. It's a promise that God will not one anyone to be perished but to have eternal life. The great promise has fulfilled why not our little tiny requests? Wait.. This does not mean that everything we ask God will give. He will only provide to those who ask according to His will. So what is His will? We can't add to God's glory and He doesn't need us. That all is given too us and it is up to Him if want to initiate something in our lives. So when we say, God we want to do Your will. Do you think we are doing something that pleases God? We need to be careful that it is not thinking that God needs us to carry out His plans. In fact, God is the one who initiates the move and speak to us when he wants to use us. Indeed what we should do is to be humble and let Him speaks and works in us. Are we humble enough? Are we there to be still and listen to what He want to say to us? All in all, He is the hope of all the earth, and all of us are rest assure in His great love!

Isn't this picture on the left nice? Coincidently took it with my random shot. How nice to bring another half to be there right? I always thinking of you wherever I go especially these nice and beautiful God's creation. The song by Trademark has this to say, but I believe for you and me, the sun will shine one day. So I'll just play my part and pray you'll have a change of heart. Yes, I write this and I meant it. The early morning of the last day of trip, we went for a climb to panorama hill called 林明山. Thought it was an easy trail and it wasn't. Climb for less than 10 minutes my foot wanted to give up. If I give up easily means I am a looser and have achieve nothing. Therefore, I put myself up and encourage myself that I should not give up easily same as to life and all situations. Perseverance is always the key to success and of course with God's power and strength. Well I made it and to the peak I have conquered in climbing the hill though with many stops and rest. It's truly worth it that through out the whole trip, I learned a lot. You think my chapter just end here? I can tell you that this is only a beginning.
