O yeah I’m so happy… so let me give you a little background of my friendship life with other people. I’m not that good person in terms of expressing myself to other. In addition, I don’t usually talk to people especially to guys that I don’t like. I don’t call someone my best friend unless she/he tell it to me that she treat me as her best friend.

CHANGE THE CAMPUS CHANGE THE WORLD!!!

PAUL AND SILAS IN PRISON

paul-and-silas

Paul and Silas …
In ACTS 16:25-26

 25 But about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them; 26and suddenly there came a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison house were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were unfastened.

at first I was not aware that Silas exist, it’s my bestfriend that introduce Silas to me, she told me that we like Paul and Silas, partner by God.

so now, we know and see that we are really paul and silas… as well as each and everyone of you reading my blog now.
In this verse, we read that Paul and Silas were sent to prison because of their faith. But they never stop singing and praying to God. Then earthquake coem and the prison door opened. Then everyone’s chains are brokenn…

so I have a 3 point in here
1. Praying and Singing Hymns
-we people Christians or not. We tend to say “thank you” when we receive gift or someone did good thing to us. But can we say thank you if a robber rob us? when we got punch? when your ex hate you? can you still say thank you and smile … from your heart?
NO WAY!!!
well, that’s us .. that is our attitude, but it’s the other way around in term of Paul and Silas. They were bought to prison, were in both of their feet are chained, they got punch, no food, no drink, beaten with a rod, bruise and hurt. YET they choose to Praise God… WHY?? Because they knew God personally, they encounter God personally, They know that God will never Abandon them nor forsaken them. Because they have realtionship with God. to be honest as a christian, I encounter lot of times where in I ask God what is this happening to me, I tend to feed my emotion, I tend to focus on the hurt and negative. But now I understand that God want us to focus on Him, to trust Him that everything is under His Control. We don’t need to focus on ourself..
see how paul and silas choose to priase God, to still stand in their faith? that is a BIG faith …
2nd EARTHQUAKE
we all know that earthquake is so devastating… it hurt lot of people, it bring down houses, and kill lot of people… Earthquake is same with our problem… imagine yourself in prison then while you’re singing to God, earthquake came … (I know I don’t have good voice but I hope God will not send earthquake when i sing songs heheh )
ofcourse paul and silas felt scared, if i were him I may even ask God to save me… that spare me… some of us may think that they are singing and proclaiming God yet earthquake came .. it’s like this … the moment I decided to surrender my life to God that’s the moment a lot of problem came to my life., I receive lot of problem and I lost money. at first I was afraid, imagine I step out from my comfort zone and now no one is protecting me, i’m getting hurt I shaking…. so afraid that I might bleed to dead and have a lot of bruise…
but i trust God, and know that He is in control , (as now I believe God is stretching my faith) and i can say earthquake are for my testimony … trials are for my testimony … and im glad to have great testimony

lastly is CHAIN ARE BROKEN
imagine this you’re in prison… earthquake came… and YOUR FEET ARE IN CHAIN … alright .. one thing is for sure I’m gonna die … hard way .. because I can’t move and i bet all the stone will crash my bones and for sure it will hurt a bunch ….
but God don’t want us to get hurt… He want us to TRUST HIM … for us to be safe … for us … to be spared…. for us to be ok ….
if paul and silas don’t trust God … i bet they will both die .. but they trust God… and God uses the EARTHQUAKE  the trials for silas and pual to set free… THEY GOT FREE… THEY CHAINS ARE BROKEN ….
not just broken .. but the door of their cell broke too .. all of them … you see when GOD GIVE A BREAKTHROUGH it is OVERWHELMING
God teaching us to trust HIm.. and to endure the TRIALS… for we will having a breakthrough in the future …
we need to wait … we need to stand FIRM

they chain are not just brokn … but they even got a change to share JESUS TO OTHER PEOPLE .. TO OTHER PRISONERS….

so to make this wrapup since it’s already 2am in the morning …
we need to stand FIRM.. when you think that nothing is going to be OKEY .. when you think that God is not there anymore … DON’T BELIEVE THE LIE OF THE ENEMY … READ YOUR BIBLE .. AND KNOW … WHO IS GOD .. KNOW HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD …
and you will see … and know personally that GOd willl never leave us nor forsaken us …

for He knows that plan He have for us …
Jeremiah 29:11

so .. there.. Goodnight guys .. my head is hurting already hahah

 

God bless every one ..
God bLess Israel 🙂

Falling in love to a wrong person

most of the time I fall inlove with a wrong person.

i feel the pain, and it really hurt me.

Feeling inlove is what we all wanted right? at the same time being broken is nobody’s dream… sometime I told myself that I need to control my emotion, to not just be in love again… I don’t want to get hurt again.

but I can’t, and this time I knew that I’m inlove with a wrong person 

this person is not bad or whatever, but I knew that it is wrong.
I ask God many time, why did I ever felt this way. I don’t want it really… But why …
I ask Him, and told Him that He know that I’m not good at controlling my emotion.
but why did He allow me to fell in love with this person.

But I believe God just want me to be stronger than before.
It’s been so long since I felt this emotion, I guess it’s been 5 years?
I’m happy that I can still feel this, but sad because I know at myself that it is WRONG
and I can’t continue this feeling anymore.

I need to stand in that, I need to keep on fighting. Everything will gonna be alright.
I love this person so I want the best for that person, and the best for that person is NOT ME… and even when it hurts all I want for that PERSON is to be on the right track, the BEST … and nothing but the best ….

It is really hard … but I know that I can overcome this, all I want is to see that person smile, laugh and see that person getting better.

I will surely offer my emotion to our God, that in time this feeling will not control me… and I still thank God that He allow me to feel this, that I felt happiness whenever I’m with this person.

to you … that persoon i’m talking about .. hehehh I bet someday you’ll know that it’s you, someday you’ll read this.. (even you don’t like reading my blog haha) I just wanna say that i’m happy that God bring you to my life. i’m happy that you are doing great now, that you are getting better, continue what your doing. I’m sorry if I don’t have enough guts to tell you my true emotion, I’m just so scared… terrified… and I don’t like to confuse you… You need to focus … one day I hope we just laugh about this …. I’m always praying for you .. so that you will achieve what God’s plan for you… stay strong … keep it up …
as what God say there are BEST YET TO COME 🙂

FOCUS

FOCUS ….

 

as I was walking with God

 

in a place that is not familiar …

 

I wander around,

I go left and rigth,

I enjoy it though…

but something is not right…. I don’t feel at peace

 

yeah i enjoy … but I know that this is not what God

 

want me to do … He want  me to focus back to Him

 

like the first time … my first love want me back …
and now I’m coming back to my first love ..

my God…

 

thanks God for You never failed to amazed me

 

and YOU never leave me 🙂

 

continue to guide me and protect my thoughts LORD

 

 

YOU ARE WEAK!!!

You cry at small thing, you always cry…

You get emotional … you get sad …

You don’t know what to do….

You can’t filter what other is saying to you…

You got easily get hurt when someone stab you in the back…

You trust too quickly and too quick you got hurt too….

You forgive all the time… in return they abuse you…

You try to help other…. Forgetting you also need help….

You get all the blame… then overthink at the end….

Is it like a cycle?

Yes you is WEAK!!!

But, being weak is OKAY… really …. Being weak means you still need someone to depend on, and that will be Jesus.

Be proud if you are weak, for He will give you strength. He will help you in everything that you need.

Do not worry, just trust on His timing.

Yes it is easy to be said but hard to do, right?

I may not know how hard your struggle now, I may not know how hard you are trying to be strong, to keep that tears from falling down your eyes. I may not know what running in your mind right now. How you cope with your problem… how you want to JUST END everything… to remove all the pain your life….

I may not know what your struggle now, but one thing is for sure, you are getting on the right track now.

Every single person got a problem, they are all same. The only different is how we react in our problem how can we cope with our problem.

WE ARE WEAK, but WE ARE ALL STRONG with GOD.

Don’t blame yourself, it’s not your fault. Please don’t

“How can I face this mountain?”

We all ask the same question in some point of our life. We can face our mountain, we must be brave and trust in our God that will guide and show us how to overcome our mountain.

Faith that God can remove the mountain of our life, well that’s what every one of us want. That out of nowhere our problem just disappear or that we receive an answer without effort. If that is the scenario we can easily put our trust in our God.

BUT

What if our scenario is that we need an action, an obedience to our Lord? Sometimes mountain don’t just move or disappear but we need to climb it, climbing the mountain is not easy. You will encounter lot of difficulties, like river crossing, heat, thirst, hunger, ache foot and more.

Sometimes God want us to trust Him, that He will give us STRENGTH TO CLIMB our mountain. That He will be with us while climbing our mountain. That he will lead us to the right path. NO SHORTCUT… why?? Because He want us to learn something from that, when we encounter so much pain it stay in our mind in that way we will be more mature and stronger than before, because we learn something new.

Do not be afraid to walk with God, to climb our mountain with God. He overcome the world surely He will overcome our mountain us well. We just need to trust in God, He is cultivating us, training us to be a good soldier.  We are getting better, than before. Don’t lose hope for we have God. Trust in His timing, please don’t give up.

I’m not saying that you should act strong… NO…. we are weak… so don’t act strong if you are weak. For God our Father know us from head to toe.

He will be happy if we ask for His help. Sometimes we thought that He is not listening in our problem, no He always have a time for each every person in the world. Believer or not…

He listen to our affliction all the time. He listen to our cries… He know how hurt we are … when we got hurt, He got hurt too….

Let’s just trust in Him, as we ask help from Him we must as well follow what God want us to do. Sometimes God given us a lot of answer and choice, but we tend to go on our own comfort zone, to follow what we thought is right. Follow God, you may thought that it will be hard, but don’t lose hope, ask for strength to our God, for us to follow what He is asking us to do …

I will be happy to pray for you.

YES YOU OUR WEAK … WITHOUT GOD… 

BUT YOU ARE A CONQUEROR WITH GOD…. 

VICTORIOUS,… FIGHTER

2 Corinthians 12:10

10That is why, for the sake of Christ, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

CONFUSION

It’s been 3 months since the last time I ask myself why am I still alive, and God told me about my mission  , about my calling

 

I thought it will end in that, that my decision will never change, that I will enjoy it no more problem since I’m following what God want me to do.

But I was wrong, because I got lot of problem in my family in our business, in myself.

I often ask myself if I am worthy, if I’m effective or if I need to continue this walk.

People judge me, they let me think that I must end my life. (Yes it came to the point that I want to commit suicide) they are leaders yet they do that, they are even mature than me (spiritually and age hehe )

It really pull me down, depression come and self-pity follows. But God never allow lies to fill my mind and heart, as I was doing okey after a few weeks. I came to a point where I ask about my future

 

“Jeremiah 29:11- For I know the plans for you, plans to prosper you, to give you hope and a FUTURE”

 

One of my fav verse, but yet I forgot it during that time.
I ask myself about my future, will I be able to have a money for my schooling in campus missionary. Will I be able to provide for my family, will I be able to manage both our business and my calling.?

After that all question it’s time for me to read the bible to know what God want to tell me.

As I open my bible it really struck me first point. In john 14 it says there
“do not let your hearts be troubled, you believe in God.”
yes I am a worrier (but I should be a warrior). I worry a lot and give my heart a fast beat, it say in verse 2, “I am going there to prepare a place for you”
when I read about it, it give me a piece and it struck my heart that I worry too much not knowingly that God is preparing a place for me.

Guess what He didn’t stop there…. In chapter 15 verse 4

“Remain in me, as I also remain in you” it really talk to me, before reading my devotion I ask God, what if I misunderstood You God, what if this is not my calling, I should QUIT and focus on something. But NO God is really amazing, He don’t want me to leave His side. He want me to remain in what He called me to do.  In verse 9: “Now remain in my LOVE” I was really hurt by this not because He don’t want me to do what  I wanted but because he want me to remain in His LOVE, which is what I WANTED AND NEEDED
But the most verse that got my attention is in
John 15:16 “You did NOT choose me, but I CHOSE YOU and APPOINTED you so that you might GO and BEAR FRUIT – fruit that will LAST –

I was amaze, it touch my heart it give me an assurance that God really chose me before I even met Him, before I even accept Him, He already plan this He already appointed me and He even declare a blessing and the best fruit… an assurance that I will be effective, because it is He that put me in my place now. I never knew that God will ever talk to me like this, the chapter of John that I’m reading now is all about his capture yet He still speak to me, yet He still want to make an assurance that I will not be left hanging question what will happen. Imagine how great are God is? Why did I ever run away from Him from the very start…

He even told me to keep holding on, that I should not be worry, I will be strong because He is in me

In verse 18, “if the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.” V19 “ you do not belong to the world, but I have CHOOSEN YOU OUT OF THE WORLD.”
reading this verse really give me hope, really refresh me really show me how much God love us, and will never leave us alone whatever happen, he even prepare us.

 

In chapter 16:2 “They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, the time is coming when anyone when anyone who KILLS you will think they are offering a SERVICE TO GOD.”

It really a personal, He really know our struggle, and will talk to us thru bible believe me, I never expect to read it in this chapter where in it’s all about the capture of Jesus yet, here He is telling me that even someone kills me (bring me down or make me feel so bad that lead to depression) they think that they are offering or they are pleasing God..    but they only doing that because they do not know God. I still love them, I will not hold grudge to them for God love me when I didn’t know Him yet.

Before the capture Jesus even pray for his disciple, for the people that will share His word,

John 17:20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message”

 

I was really amazed how God can communicate with us thru the bible, truly this His living word, the bible is alive as our God is alive … praise God forever and ever …

Tough LOVE :)

aaaa.jpg

I didn’t expect to experience the tough love earlier than our series 🙂

tough love will be our Youth Service series this coming friday and I just experience it, while me and my pakner (bestfriend) are talking in chat and sms, we got in a debate with regards on standing what is right and wrong.

I realize it’s not that easy to accept correction and hearing (seeing) from your friend what wrong with you give me a heart ache. I thought that even my friend can’t love me from my worst, maybe I am not worth loving, maybe they are right that I am the problem why I don’t got lot of friend, I pity myself, I told myself that I need to stop reaching the campus since I am not worthy , I’m a sinner , I can’t be a leader.

But I was wrong, God use my friend to open my mind, to remind me to be humble, to just obey Him and follow Him, that I don’t need to worry. He reminded me in Matthew 5:8 – “bleesed are the pure in heart, for they will see God”. God knows me and He want me to have a pure heart He want me to remind that heart, so that I can see Him, He don’t want to lose me, I am WORTHY in Him 🙂

That I am a LIGHT AND SALT of this World. I need to share the light and they need to see the light in me, they need to see Jesus in me 🙂  as said in “Matthew 5:16”- In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. 
At the end of our day, we only want to glorify our Father in heaven.

In Matthew 5:24 – “Leave your gift there in front of the altar, first go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift. “ After reading this He remind that I need to have a pure heart and reconcile to my mom 🙂 I need to be humble and submit myself I need to keep on accepting everything, I need to protect her and I don’t need to be cold to her even I got hurt. I need to do that for them to see Jesus in me and for God to be glorified .

Matthew 5:39 – “But I tell you, do not resist an evil PERSON. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also.”

For Him I can do everything to Honor Him because he is so WORTHY TO BE HONORED

even when it hurt, now I understand why Pakner need to tell me that things. I thank her for taking a step of courage and sincerity for me to know it 🙂 ❤
