Really haven been blogging for some time cause dunno wat to write...haha..in the end last week only went for 1 interview cause 1 cancelled and i forgot i had to teach tuition twice last week so din go one of the interview...
last week have this very unpleasant encounter with the agent from JMC employment agency....hmmm...it was on thursday..she called me after receiving my resume online..i told her that my schedule last week was very pack and the earliest that i can go for any interview will be today in the morning between 8-10am explaining that i have to go to work at 11am...then in the evening she called and say she have arranged an interview today at 3.30pm...she did not even ask me if i can make it and i already told her that i can only make it in the morning...she told me to take leave...i explain that it is hard as my colleagues have lessons on monday and i got to close the centre....then she keep saying but u want the job right then u jus got to arrange in a very fierce and attitude tone...then i say ok i will try but no gurantee...then she say have to go her agency to register on fri...i told her i cannot cause i giving tuition from 8am-10am then i working to 11am-7pm..then she say then u got to arrange,i cannot possibly wait for you and in the end knock off at 10pm..in my heart i was thinking i did not ask her to stay and is her fault in the 1st place, she did not tell me need to down to the agency before she can arrange for interview with the company and without asking me she arranged an interview which is not the time i agreed with her...then i very piss...she pass the phone to her supervisor and i told her supervisor i already say i working but she arrange an interview at 3.30pm knowing that i cannot make it and she din ask...yes, i can jus take leave on mon and dun care bout my current job...but will anyone want someone so irresponsible?iwrote them an email saying i was very upset by the service offered, asking will they intro someone irresponsible for a interview with their clients?haiz...bad experience sia...thank God jobDB.com and Recruit Express not like that...
this morning went for an interview with the agrnt from Recruit Express...hmm..the person say will be a bit hard for me to get to $1.8 job cause i no experience in the area of Admin...but i believe God will provide...He is my provider...He can make the impossible possible...with all you guys praying for me...i believe i can get a job at $1.8...do continue to pray for me ya...thanks

Today cg was awesome...God show up...when i sang the 1st worship song...i broke down in tears...tears kept flowing down my cheeks...then we sang the 2nd worship song,...so long since i last sang this song...but God spoke to me bout lots of things as we are singing it...thank you God for showing up and speakin to me...this is how the song goes
RENEW MY LIFE LORD JESUS I NEVER WANT TO BE THE SAME
RENEW MY LIFE LORD JESUS PLACE THIS HEART INSIDE OF ME
IN MY LIFE AND THOUGHTS THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS THAT NEED THE CHANGE THAT ONLY YOUR LOVE CAN BRING AND I NEED TO BE TRANSFORMED INTO YOUR LIKENESS, O LORD CHANGE THIS HEART INSIDE OF ME

Have been going through a lot in my spiritual life. Those who know it, thanks for all the encouragement. Thanks for being there for me. I will stay strong. Eleanor read this book(Purpose Driven Life) and there's this part that says...
Character is both developed and revealed by tests, and all of life is a test. A very important test is how you act when you can't feel God's presence in your life: Sometimes God intentionally draws back, and we don't sense his closeness. The bible says, God withdrew from Hezekiah in order to test him and to see what was really in his heart." God left him alone to test his character, to reveal a weakness, and to prepare him for more responsibility.
She email me this to me that God is still there and she feel that He is preparing me for greater works! Hee...thanks gal..i will keep pressing on and not give up! :)
Gwen shared with me her revelation which "WOW"me...think she will post it in N317 blog soon and she also told me something that i think is so true..she said God hasn't left me to fight this battle on my own cause He has provided with all i need to stand thru this season-friends..thanks GAL...think you are really one who is good in your words :)
hey friends..thanks for being with me fighting this battle together with me. SATAN is going to lose for sure..actually he had already lost..i just need to claim the victory cause Jesus has won 2000yrs ago on the cross... :)
