  • "Holiness Is Consistency"

    Hi Friends!

    It’s been a while- life is incredibly full as always; but God is so faithful, so kind and beyond generous to me. I’ve been travelling frequently for ministry and have been vocal coaching clients, song writing for new projects and organising a Vocal Summit in November 2017 (which will take place in two cities!). All very exciting! I’m thankful. Thank you also for your continuous support and prayers.

    I recently listened to Ps Judah Smith’s message where he shared on the thought of ‘Holiness Is Consistency’. This profound thought struck a chord in me- if we want to be more like Jesus, we should be more consistent. Over the years I’ve met many different people, those in the corporate world, people in ministry, people in the entertainment industry- you name it. Something I’ve noticed is that many people struggle at being consistent in their relationships (with each other). I myself have struggled at times to keep up with friends and family. I understand that we all live very ‘busy lives’, but after hearing this thought from Ps Judah, it confirmed my thoughts on being consistent with relationships- just like how we should be with Jesus.

    I’ve found that as I go out about my day- I always feel like the Holy Spirit prompts me to text or call specific people- sometimes I haven’t heard or seen them in months, but I’ve learnt to just be obedient. Often, the person on the receiving end would open up and share with me how they’re really doing/what they are going through. You never know when just a simple text or a short phone call could make a person realise how loved and cared for they are by our Heavenly Father.

    My prayer is that we never get too busy and caught up in the race of life. May we pause at times and never be too occupied to show and express the love of Christ to the people in our lives or even those we have brief encounters with at the supermarket. May we always walk towards living a life of consistency. If I want to be more like Jesus everyday, then I also need  to be more and more consistent in every aspect of my life.

    God bless you!

  • Love Much. Love Well.

    Hello Everyone!

    Recently, I feel God has been teaching me more and more about being immersed in His love. And, as a result of being completely immersed and soaked in His love, to be a releaser of His love in every season. The past few months have been packed-out but amazing : travelling for ministry, conducting vocal workshops, vocal coaching private and corporate clients, partnering with amazing song-writing studio projects and vocal production. God is always so faithful. I’m continuously in awe of His plans for my life, surprising yet fulfilling.

    I’ve walked through seasons of great loss but also triumphant victories. Through it all, I’ve learnt what it truly means to be immersed in His love. His love is like a covering, a safety blanket that shields us in times of trouble and in times of greatness. I was reading Philippians 1:9-11 in the Message translation and the statement “love much but well” stood out to me. What does it mean to love? Furthermore, what does it mean to love much but well?

    1 Corinthians 13 in the Message translation states what Love is:

    Love never gives up

    Love cares more for others than for self

    Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have

    Love doesn’t strut

    Doesn’t have a swelled head

    Doesn’t force itself on others

    Isn’t always me ‘first’

    Doesn’t fly off the handle

    Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others

    Doesn’t revel when others grovel

    Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth

    Puts up with anything

    Trusts God always

    Always looks for the best

    Never looks back

    But keeps going to the end

    Love never dies

    What I’ve gathered is that, whether we’re walking through a season of loss or a season of victory, I believe as children of God we can love much and love well-- irrespective of our circumstances. Even when we’re hurting, we can still care more for others than for ourselves, we can still always look for the best in others.

    My prayer for you who are reading this, and for myself, is that we will continue to learn and live a life that loves much and loves well. It might not be easy all the time, but I encourage all of us to ask God… “Help me to love like You, help me to love people even when I’m hurting, help me to love much and love well.”

    God bless you guys! Till next time!

  • Life Is Worth Living

    Happy New Year Family & Friends!

    I pray that 2017 will be a year of fruitfulness, divine appointments, fresh encounters and revelations of Jesus that will bring you closer and deeper to the One who loves you for all eternity.

    As I reflect back on 2016, I stand in awe of God’s goodness and faithfulness in my life. I am constantly blown away by the God breathed opportunities. Throughout 2016 God was reminding me to be present in what He was doing in my life and to not get distracted.

    Many amazing things happened in 2016; completing my Specialist Certificate in General Music Studies with Berklee College of Music, traveling the region to share God’s faithfulness through music, vocal coaching students, meeting my sponsor child through Compassion Australia, co-writing fresh songs and so much more!

     Thank you for being a part of my journey. I appreciate each and every one of you. God is faithful, always.

     “The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living.”-Hebrews 11:1-2 MSG

     I am truly so excited for what God is going to do in 2017.

    “Here I am Lord, use me”.

    Love always,

    Aarksara :)

     

  • Never Lose Our Wonder

    Hey Friends!

    The past few months have been jam packed with amazing sessions and engagements. I absolutely love seeing how the Lord moves in and through people. It's so refreshing.

    I have been traveling and leading worship at various churches and conferences in different nations as well as conducting vocal and songwriting workshops. On top of it all, I have also recently completed my Specialist General Music Studies Certificate with Berklee College of Music, Boston. It was such an incredible and enlightening journey! I also recently was a part of a concert with Khun Anchalee Chongkhadikig. It was indeed an honour.

    I feel like God has been reminding me to never lose our wonder. To always be expectant and excited for what He is going to do next. We never know what God has in store for us, but all we know is that it's going to be GOOD! In 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 (MSG);

    'Keep your eyes open, hold tight to your convictions, give it all you've got, be resolute and love without stopping.'

    I love this. My prayer is that I'll always keep my eyes and heart open to see the glory of God revealed here on this earth. It's so easy to get carried away with the pressures of this earth. May we never lose hold of our convictions and give everything we've got for the glory of God!

    Friends, I want to encourage you today to never lose your wonder. Be expectant and ready for what God is going to do next in your life. It's going to be amazing. Get ready!

    Love,

    Aarksara : )
