[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.
[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.
[ENG] Every time i heard a story from a person who hates his parents, i’ll suddenly remember mine. (Read the other true stories in a post : Everything Starts From Inside The Blanket). He was a loving father for me. He never hit or abused me. Unfortunately, being a loving father didn’t make him a loving husband for Mama. He was a monster.
[ENG] Going through the second-trimester of my pregnancy (20 weeks now) – i noticed that there’s something growing inside me. A love of a mother that i never knew and thought and feel of, slowly growing inside me. I was so much in pain last night because of GERD – i was roaring in pain – and plus i’m still coughing pretty bad because of the influenza. Had this gastric acid pain couple times but this time is different. God taught me about His love through my love for the baby.
[ENG] This passage is often missed by people, but when i read it over and over again, it really speaks to me and bless me. I could feel His enormous love through these words! Job 39 was God’s answer to Job and to us. This is the mighty of His wisdom and His love. You could feel them through every word. And through these words, we should feel :
[ENG] A God who came into the world, born from a virgin and died at the cross for the people that He called as heirs and His own. This is a fact that is so hard to be accepted by people a long time ago and up until now in the 21st century. While there are so many people who mock at Him, i feel grateful for He is God and He was once a Man and that He is my God. You’ll see why i could declare that there is truly none like Him.
The standard you’ve set will determine how much love you’ll get. That is why there are some people who feels loved by someone who’s treating her the opposite of love and there are some people who feels lack of love by someone who we can say is such a romantic and lovable person. It’s all about the standard you’ve set. Set higher and you’ll demand higher, set lower and you’ll be easier satisfied. It’s not a matter of right and wrong, but it is to set the right standard and meet the right one.
[ENG] “What rights do you have to be disappointed in Me?” – This is the question that He’s asking to all of us as a reminder. It touches a heart that still waiting for some answers of it’s dreams, it’s hopes and it’s desire.
[ENG] Faith is trusting that we have received God’s promises even when it’s not happening yet. Faith is trusting God’s love – not just what He can do but more of His heart to us. Faith is to see beyond what our eyes could see.
Let’s start our new year with a renewed faith by God’s grace.
[ENG] I could say that getting hit by a severe eczema is the worst plan that God could probably have for me. Well, that is before i knew His heart and His real plans are. Today, getting hit by a severe eczema is a precious moment of my life, a wonderful set of plan from Jesus’s big plans.
Are you dealing with dark times of your life? Maybe you are thinking just like what i was thinking, that probably this is the worst plan He got for you, or maybe you think that He is so bad that make you this way? If yes, then please hear me out for a second!
