Just came back from the church youth party :)
It was super fun! Haha we had this $5 gift exchange thing and I got a glow-in-dark test tube with some bath oils from ZY. Anyway the atmosphere was really good. We went out to the balcony and there were candles lit up, it looked really warm and romantic.
Heh and then there was this movie made by NLYC which was super funny!
It was about the Ghost of Christmas who came on Christmas Eve of 2005 to visit Jeremy.
Through the Christmas ghost, Jeremy realised that he led a life of sin. All the eves of Christmas were turning points of his life. Christmas Eve 1997 was when he broke up with his girl friend, Hannah. He felt really miserable after that... and on Christmas Eve of 2036, he passed away at the age of 48.
Well, this brings forward the question. What does Christmas mean to me?
Christmas to me means spending time with the dearest around me... those whom I love and those who love me. Whether it's my family or friends, I love them all. Christmas is a time when people put away their differences and also a time to forgive and forget. Christmas to me is about giving and sharing. It is also a time to stop our busy lives and focus on prayer and love :)
And most importantly, Christmas is about celebrating the birth of Jesus.
It is about thanking Christ for all that He's done to keep us on our feet... this is the day that God sent his only son so that we might have salvation. And that is why I want to be a true follower of Christ. I want to honour You and to offer You my heart. I want to commit myself to You :)
I admit and acknowledge my sins... I ask for repentance, and I ask to receive God's love and forgiveness.
And most importantly, I want to love the people around me. I want to forgive and forget the bad feelings I've had recently for a certain person. I want to care for the people around me. Even for those whom I don't know, I wish them a very Happy Christmas ... and to you too :)
I love this song.
I Offer My Life - Hillsong
All that I am, all that I have
I lay them down before you O Lord
All my regrets, all my acclaim
The joy and the pain, I'm making them yours
Lord I offer my life to You
Everything I've been through
Use it for your glory
Lord I offer my days to You
Lifting my praise to You
As a pleasing sacrifice
Lord I offer You my life
Things in the past, things yet unseen
Wishes and dreams that are yet to come true
All of my hopes, all of my plans
My heart and my hands are lifted to You.
It just touches my heart.
