"30Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and now grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint."

Well..as u can c the title...it is exactly wat God had shown me....well...i hope after decribing wat it meant, it wont spoil ur mood while u walk on the beach....hahahaaha.....
Well....I bet of us...especially KK ppl...wont miss the opportunity to be able to have sometime walking on the beach since we have so many beaches rite??...tanjung aru beach...tuaran beach, papar beach. kudat beach, sandakan beach, sipadan beach, Kalimantan beach......oops...sudah limpas....haha...well as we walk on the beach, specifically along the shore...where we can feel physically as the wave washes out feet....This is wat God told me about....As we journey in life....is like walking on the beach....life is beautiful....and so is the panorama of the beach....while we are walking the waves kept coming to and fro gently washing our feet.....the wave symbolizes the temptation we face in our life....sometimes it is our human nature of curiosity, stubborness and disobedient the causes us to fall into those temptations, so is like the when we walk a long the shore, sometimes we will get so excited to get into the deeper part to experience a better feeling of the wave.....bt we never know how dangereous it could be....we never realize if we go deeper, the current will wash us away......and that is when we fall.....
Another perspective that God have given me was the wave is like trials and challenges in our life, the waves never stop coming, so as do our trials and challenges in our life....as we live, we realize that trails kept coming after one the other.....that's where we should depend on God.....if we use our leg to dig a hole on the wet sand ....it is like if we are grounded and rooted in God's word, we will not get washed away easily by the waves....And also, if u realize the wave never keep going forward bt it will draw back after a while....which means no " waves" last forever...there will be always a door out to overcome those challenges in our life..God will never put us into test which are beyond our ability to bear.
So as we run the race on the "beach"....we may fall sometimes...bt it is the love and grace of God that we could come back to Him...most importantly is that we get back to our feet and continue on....though the finishing line seems to be so far away at the other side of the beach....bt enjoy to the fullness, build your relationship with God to a whole new level.... as u guys journey the way on the "beach" till the day when we will able meet our Father in Heaven....whom He will say after looking the foot prints of ours on the beach...."Well done my good and loyal servant"....i bet all of us as children of God will want to show that we are worthy to be called his sons and daughters yea!!!!.....so we are have our own journey....let us be a memorable one the glorify Him....make sure every of our footprint is like Jesus which means that we try to live like how Jesus did:)...
Well i hope u guys will ponder about it and treasure life more ....there is something more than this....hope u guys are still doing your quiet time....and study His word as well....sorry if i have not catchup will some u due to my buzi schedule...anyway....add the new batch of youth into this blog!!!!!.....I believe God will speak to them as well:)......Alright ....gotta go....c u guys during CNY!!!!!....maybe we shall have an outing in the beach as well:)....hahaha...May God bless and guide all of u :)

An Ethiopian farmer hid more than $12,000 in a haystack—which unfortunately was home to some hungry rodents. Just three weeks after he stashed the cash, he discovered that rats had chewed through almost one-third of his savings!
When I read about this farmer’s misfortune, I couldn’t help thinking back to Jesus’ words: “Don’t store up treasures here on earth” (Matthew 6:19). Why not? Because moths (or rats) might nibble them down to nothing. Because our wealth could become burglar bait. Basically, because anything we store up on earth is temporary.
Maybe that’s why we’re supposed to “think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth” (Colossians 3:2). An eternal view helps to keep us from becoming consumed by whatever we can glom onto in this life.
So, how do we keep from letting our bank accounts get the best of us? Jesus urged us to store up treasures in heaven where decay and loss are non-events. But how?
We’re supposed to “be rich in good works and generous to those in need . . . . By doing this [we] will be storing up treasure as a good foundation for the future” (1 Timothy 6:18-19). It’s the tangible acts of kindness and love that provide true wealth.
If that’s not enough to satisfy our longing for everlasting affluence, we also need to invest in “a rich relationship with God” (Luke 12:21). The closer our connection with Him, the less we’ll care about the here-today-gone-tomorrow goodies of this world.
Jesus said, “Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be” (Matthew 6:21). To keep our hearts in the right place, we’ve got to stockpile treasure in heaven rather than being consumed with whatever we’ve got stored in the haystack!
6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. 8 But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. 9 People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. 1 Timothy 6:7
15 Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
18 “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19 And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.” ’
4 Don’t wear yourself out trying to get rich.Be wise enough to know when to quit.
Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be (v.21).
