Loving God with a Heart of Praise and Worship - Psalm 96, 103
Written by John Tsang   
Monday, 05 October 2015 21:55

In life, there are times when we go through valleys, there are times in which we go through mountaintops, and then there are times in between. For many of us, much of life is lived in the 'in between' where things are somewhat stable. Life is good, family is coming along, work is invigorating, stresses are manageable, and no visits to the doctor to discuss test results. We know that hardships can help us to love God better if we learn the lessons of trust and faith. But what about when life is good? Instinctively, we know the danger of spiritually slipping and drifting when times are good. We rely on our own strength and our own abilities. Slowly our hearts become cold and we forget God. But it doesn't have to be this way. The fact that about 70 Psalms can be categorized as Psalms of Lament means that the other 80 were written from the vantage point of relatively good, peaceful, and blessed circumstances. It is to that collection we now turn to for wisdom and guidance on how to love God better when our own lives are going merrily along. The first group of these Psalms are ones that teach us to praise and worship God. Praise and worship, if done properly, will not only sustain our love for God but it can cultivate a consistent and deep affection for God during life’s good moments.

Spiritual Memory Care - Psalm 124
Written by Conrade Yap

In my neighbourhood, it has been more than two years since an Alzheimer’s patient, Shin Noh was reported missing after walking out of his house. For the Noh family, it continues to be painfully difficult as there is no way to find closure as long as Noh remained missing. Despite the many walks and searches, social media appeals and wide media reports, no one knows where the 64-year-old former Korean pastor is. The family has since set up a website appealing for any public assistance. Alzheimer’s disease is a little different from dementia. According to the Center for Disease Control, Dementia is a larger term that encompasses “impaired thinking and memory” while Alzheimer’s is a very specific form of dementia that is “irreversible” and “incurable.” Those of us with aging parents suffering from any of these would identify with the challenges of caring. It hurts when our loved ones do not recognize who we are. It pains us when they forget about their illustrious past and simply sits down with no idea of who they were. If only their memories could be unlocked, unleashed, and understood, there would be joyous whoops of delight. Ecclesiastes 12:1 reminds us to “Remember your Creator in the days of your youth.” I think it is a call for us to cultivate memory care, WHILE WE CAN.

All My Longings - Psalm 63
Written by John Tsang   
Monday, 21 September 2015 22:03

What are your greatest and deepest longings? Do you believe that God is the one who can meet them? We know what the Sunday School answer is but the real test is when hardships, trials, and failures come. That is when the "rubber meets the road" and how we respond will reveal the true answer to that question.


God has gifted the Church with the Psalms. The Psalmist is someone who went through many life tests, wrestled with God, and arrived at some conclusion. By the leading of the Spirit, the Psalmist recorded his prayers through poetry and song. So now when a life test comes our way, we can turn to the collection of Psalms to serve as our guide on the treacherous parts of life's journey. Dr Hindmarsh noted that the Psalms encompass the whole of life and the whole of Scripture. In the Psalms you will find the complete range of human emotions and you will find the entire God-Story. As well, the Psalms are God's Word to us and yet they are our words to God. Psalms can be difficult at times so we do need to do a bit of work to find the hidden treasure. Yet the Psalms are easy in that anyone can pray them and be spiritually nourished. Our Lord Jesus Christ prayed the Psalms on many occasions as the God-man; he is in many ways, the embodiment of the Psalms.
