And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14
Last weekend, David and I arrived Singapore after a long, long flight from the USA. We flew from Birmingham (AL) on June 13, through Chicago, San Francisco and arrived Singapore on June 15th. Of course there is also a time difference. It was long and exhausting but thankful to the Lord for a safe journey. We are thankful also that the Lord worked it out for us to travel together on the long international flight. When we arrived the Guesthouse of Salvation Army in SG, I was pleasantly surprised to see the big words on the wall, (see photo above). It’s not only a great Bible verse in the Old Testament, but a personal word from the Lord. The day before we left Alabama, during our devotional readings, (with “Jesus Always” devotional), one of the key verses was the same exact words in Exodus 33:14 “And He said, “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest”‘. Isn’t the Lord so cool? I had had some concerns before making the big trip, but a confirmation of His words ten thousand miles away is truly amazing!
We had a couple of days in Singapore to recoup from the long journey and get ready for another journey. We had enjoyed fellowship and worship with the brothers and sisters of Bukit Panjang Methodist Church. Another one thing cool being a follower of the Lord Jesus, is anywhere we travel, in any country, whatever nationality, we feel connected to the people even when we do not speak the same language, because we worship the same God, our Lord Jesus Christ.
Then on the same Sunday afternoon, we took the subway train, and went to the Gardens by the Bay.
A fancy park with spectacular landscape and hanging gardens. The park is actually free to public, except for the Flower Dome and the Cloud Dome. David and I enjoyed the freebies!
The park was filled with people from other tourists visiting and local people, not only because it was a weekend, but Disney had a set up to promote their coming movie, “Toy Story 4”.
It was a nice weekend, after long flights and days of travel preps, it was good to have an enjoyable Sunday in Singapore. That helped us get ready for the following week busy activities. David participated in Broadcast Asia while I had to catch a flight to Bangkok. We are grateful to the Lord’s goodness and faithfulness. Hope to post more if and whenever I find a chance. Hope you enjoy reading our travel blog.
