It was so dark that i couldn’t see, or maybe refuse to see. I thought God has left me, i thought God has probably abandoned me or just gone leaving me like this. But no, i was wrong. This flare up has taught me a lot of things i forgot. Faith, Love and Hope.
[ENG] Being a parent has brought me to feel a new kind of feeling that i have never felt before; a parent’s love. It’s so different with all kind of loves, it’s so much different with love toward our spouse or parents or friends or everybody else. This new experience has brought me to feel how great is God’s love as our parent to us. It has opened my eyes to see and understand tiny about what He has sacrificed in the name of Love. Please allow me to tell you a little about it.
In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? (Luke 24:5)
[ENG] When i was walking to the lobby of my office – i saw some plants lining up tidily as i walk my way to the front door. I have been walking on it everyday for like 3 years or so but yesterday something hit me. I saw that most of the plants has a dry end. And suddenly this view reminds me of our life. How our life are often reflected exactly like these plants.
Setiap kali saya berfikir mengenai kehidupan, pikiran saya cenderung memikirkan segala pencapaian dalam hidup – apakah itu soal harta, promosi, kuasa atau jabatan. Sepertinya hal-hali ni telah menjadi standar pencapaian kita dalam hidup. Namun, benarkah demikian? Berapa banyak orang kaya, orang berposisi tinggi yang meninggal dalam penyesalan? meninggal dalam kesia-siaan? dalam kesedihan dan kepedihan? Lalu pertanyaannya, apa yang seharusnya kita kejar dalam hidup ini?
[ENG] Hello, all ! So glad that it seems like i could write more often again, and maybe you’ll find out that there will be a lot more of pregnancy posts coming up #ups. Coping with the first trimester really got me to stop doing lots of things. Today’s post will be a bit of random i guess. Just realized this morning that dealing with pregnancy means that we will be dealing with lots of questions on our head.
“you will be secure, because there is hope; you will look about you and take your rest in safety. You will lie down, with no one to make you afraid, and many will court your favor.” (Job 11:18-19) — Hope should be like a ray of light in the darkness. Hope should be like a water spring in the desert. But, can you deny it, that sometimes it takes more than just courage to hope? When does hope become a burden on our shoulder?
[ENG] I remembered 1 song from Lauren Daigle which said, ‘When You don’t move the mountain i’m needing You to move, When You don’t part the waters i wish i could walk through, when You don’t give the answers as i cry out to You. I will trust, i will trust, i will trust in You.” — What is faith? Why it feels so hard to ask or to hope on something? It seems like God is closing every door we wish to open. Don’t you feel like this sometimes? Well, welcome to the club. And today, let’s see the true faith that God wants us to have while we ask, seek and knock.
[ENG] It happened when i prayed with tears pouring from my eyes. I was dealing with my enemy since a long time – fear. I was lost at the moment – it tormented me with dark lies everyday. But when i came to God’s presence, He taught me a precious lesson to cast away fear.
“It needs more than a positive thinking to cast away your fear.”
[ENG] As i scroll down my social media’s timeline, i found that there are a lot of news about youth’s going depressed and decide to end their life or some postings showing their frustration about the world’s demands on their shoulder. Allow me to say that this depression and frustration comes when we can’t deal with the word “failure”.
