Letter To My Prince In Knight Shining Armor

Its raining outside.. Cloudy afternoon I have.. Looking at rain drops.. Smell of the grass after the rain.. Having tea time with some books.. This is something I love.. ♥

I saw many couples out there.. Giggling and cuddling each other, how sweet! Sharing umbrella.. Hand in hand crossing the roads.. He whisper some words that make her face turns as read as cherry plum.. The sounds of their laughter warms my heart..

Here I am.. Wondering.. Smiling.. Thinking.. And here again.. I remind my self not to lower my standard.. I am constantly reminding my self that you, my future husband is alive right now.. And thinking about what I will tell you someday about how I lived my life before I meet you..

So in this time of waiting.. I will wait faithfully.. I want to remain faithful to you and to God alone.. In a sense, faithfulness means developing a habit of loving you, my Prince In Knight Shining Armor through patiently waiting.. Consistently hoping.. And living by the high standard.. to which I've been called!

Though it is so hard some times.. (Most of the times to be honest).. I want to masters the art of faithfulness.. way before I meet you.. So when the wedding bells rings and the marriage life start.. I will be ready.. For you.. To love, to cherish, to help, to support.. And the most important.. To be your prayer tower.. All the days of my life..

One thing that I ask from the Lord, to mold me to be a lover who was wholly faithful.. A woman who know how to blend love and purity with patience. A woman who truly know how to be single with purpose.. In a way that would honor and cherish God and you.. My future groom :)

I know that you are alive at this very moment.. You need prayer.. You has bad days.. You weeps.. You captivated.. You struggle.. You hope.. You dream.. You miserable.. You overjoyed.. You discouraged.. You depressed.. I don't want to spend my life, my days.. Wondering how you look like, on the other hand what I hope and pray the most is.. that you will choose His will above your own will. A man that know no compromise when it comes to live fully for God..

Truly believe that God's plan is perfect.. And it will be so amazing in His time -- not in my time! I just want to put you in God's hands.. And dear G, please help me to wait patiently and to be faithful in my attitudes, thoughts, actions, and relationship with other members of the opposite sex.. To see them as my brother-in-Christ rather to see them as potential guy..

my handwriting di diaryku ;p
And last but no least.. Dear G, I pray.. Please make you, my man.. Far more consumed with following after Christ than chasing after me..

May this simple prayer always help me back in the track.. When the loneliness come attack me.. To always running after Christ rather than the things the world offer..

Let me be a woman who clothes with strength and dignity.. So I can laughs without fear of the future..

Inspiring Story of Jeremy Lin

Here is an inspring story of Jeremey Lin, basketball player. He bring his faith, his trust in God in field, and he's not ashamed to proclaim that God is his priority. Such a rare condition nowdays in the mids of his popularity, he shows to the whole world his passion for God.. Read the interview below, and I believe it will encourage you to become a woman/man of example and lady/guy of influence :) Enjoy!

It’s March Madness and Harvard basketball fans are celebrating their best season ever. The team’s top scorer, Jeremy Lin, is making headlines as a gifted Asian American basketball star. We went beyond the hoops hoopla and talked with Jeremy about his passion for God and role as a missional InterVarsity leader and trendsetter on one of America’s most historic campuses.

While Jeremy’s basketball abilities and ethnicity have caught the attention of Time, Sports Illustrated and ABC Sports, he’s more than a talented athlete. Jeremy is on a mission for God. In this interview, Jeremy talks about his life as a Christian, a student-athlete and his involvement with the Harvard-Radcliffe Asian American Christian Fellowship (HRAACF). Congratulations on a great season. Your team has more wins than any in Harvard history. How has this year been for you?

Jeremy: It’s been great! We finished the regular season with a best-ever 21-7 record and we’ve been invited to a postseason tournament. The program is moving in the right direction and people are excited about basketball at Harvard. You’re generating a very enthusiastic and diverse fan base. That must be satisfying.
Jeremy: We’ve had great student support. It’s been unbelievable because we know that Harvard has never seen anything like this before. You’re nominated for the Bob Cousy Award as one of the best point guards in the country and your skills on the court have had a huge impact on the team’s success. How would you describe your influence as a Christian on the team?

Jeremy: I’ve learned how to be open and bold about my faith, but in terms of my influence, I just try to lead in a godly way. What that means for me is to serve them, whether it’s just doing the dirty work, like cleaning up sweat on the floor, or deferring to other people, or carrying equipment bags. In basketball these days, the rookies and freshmen are supposed to do the grunt work, and seniors relax and hang out, but when you reverse that, or when seniors help out with some of that, it shows that you’re trying to serve them, and that’s a good way to lead.

Also, the way you talk to your teammates and push them and the way you treat them is important. There is a fine line between trying to help your teammates and criticizing them. The toughest part for me is how to keep my teammates accountable but at the same time do it in a loving way that doesn’t judge or condemn them. It’s definitely been a struggle and I’m trying to learn how to lead consciously in a way that honors God. So you’re saying it’s a sensitive balance to speak both truth and grace to your teammates. As a leader you want to be honest and truthful when you see something that needs correction, but how do you offer grace as well? As a captain, do you have frequent opportunities to do this?

Jeremy: Yes, every day in practice I have to lead by example. But at the same time, when people aren’t doing what they’re supposed to be doing, you’re responsible as a player. You can’t rely on the coaches to say everything. The players have to be responsible and take ownership of the team. Every day in practice there are situations where you need to say something and get a message across, but do it in the right way. It sounds as if your teammates have a lot of respect for you, so you must be doing something right.

Jeremy: Maybe we all just have a lot of respect for each other. We’re real happy; we have a family atmosphere. Have any of your teammates expressed an interest in exploring faith?
Jeremy: Yes, some of my teammates, non-believers, want to have a Bible study. We’re just getting started. I’m looking at a curriculum called The Hurdle by Athletes in Action. The studies are very practical for athletes. What spiritual disciplines have you developed that keep you grounded and focused as a student-athlete?

Jeremy: First, I need to be in the Word daily. I read and pray in the morning and at night. It helps me get off to a good start in the morning and at night I look back at what happened during the day.

And it’s really important to me to go to church, which is sometimes tough when I get back from road trips late on Saturday night, but I try to make it a priority to go every week. That helps me a lot. And I meet weekly for discipleship with Adrian Tam, my InterVarsity staff worker.

Having small group once a week gives me a lot of encouragement and accountability. Even though I go to church, I don’t really know many people there, but my real community is my small group. So your small group is a place where you can be honest and real; they know you and support you.

Jeremy: Yeah, and people are praying for you. Looking back, what have you learned from your journey as a student-athlete at Harvard? Have you encountered discouragement and disappointment in your athletic career?

Jeremy: When I first got to Harvard, I was suddenly around athletes all the time and I wasn’t used to that. It’s a tough environment and if you don’t have appropriate boundaries, you’ll compromise your faith. I struggled spiritually for a while and I didn’t have many Christian friends. It wasn’t until I got plugged in to a small group my sophomore year that things really started to change. I began to build a Christian community, learn more about Jesus in the Bible studies and develop relationships that helped me with accountability.

Athletically, my team wasn’t good my first three years here, and that’s always hard because everyone wants to win. Over the years I’ve learned that just because you follow God, it doesn’t mean you win every game or get what you want athletically. There is a godly way to play basketball and that’s what you’re responsible for doing. If you happen to get a championship, great, but if not, there is a lesson to be learned. And I’ve had to learn it because I haven’t been able to win an Ivy League championship in my four years here, and that’s something I’ve really wanted to do. You mentioned your small group was a turning point in your life. How did you get involved in the Asian American Christian Fellowship?

Jeremy: I joined a Bible study my freshman and sophomore years. Investing in AACF really spurred my spiritual growth because I made friends that I could talk to about Christianity and I was encouraged by what God was doing in other members of the fellowship. I became a co-leader my junior year and I’m co-leading again this year. The group is a mix of believers and seekers.

During the basketball season, I don’t go to the large-group meetings because they’re on Fridays. Our fellowship has about 80 people and our purpose is to know God and make him known. We’re trying to do that in a way that is relevant for everyone on our campus. What do you enjoy most about being a part of AACF and it’s mission at Harvard?

Jeremy: I think one of the most rewarding experiences in life is to see people come to Christ and make lifestyle changes. When that happens, you definitely see God behind it. This year we’ve seen eight students make first-time decisions for Christ and when I see that, it’s a great feeling. I’m really thankful that God is changing somebody, or sometimes he’s changing me. To see that transformation brings me a lot of satisfaction and fulfillment. I definitely want to do something in ministry down the road, maybe as a pastor if that’s where God leads. Your Taiwanese heritage is drawing a lot of attention because it’s so rare to see really great Asian American basketball players. And yet you have said that you’ve encountered frequent racism from fans when you’re playing. How have you learned to deal with the racial slurs?

Jeremy: First of all, when it gets to me and I get really frustrated, I don’t play as well. Second, the Bible message that sticks out to me is “turn the other cheek” and just forgive. That’s what I try to do. At this point, it doesn’t bother me anymore because I’ve heard it for so long. Sadly!

Jeremy: That’s just part of sports. Fans try to do whatever they can to get in your head. I’m not the only one receiving really rough remarks. Other people are getting jeered, too. It may not be related to race, but some of the fans can be pretty brutal, including our fans. How have your Asian American brothers and sisters in the chapter responded to the racial slurs you’ve encountered on the basketball court?

Jeremy: It happens when we’re on the road, so no one in the chapter sees it. It doesn’t happen in our home gym. Your parents are from Taiwan but got you started in basketball when they moved to California. What has been their role in your life, both in terms of basketball and your faith?

Jeremy: It’s huge. They brought me up in a Christian home and taught me what it means to be a Christian. But the thing I appreciate most about them is they don’t judge my basketball performance on how I do individually in terms of statistics. They make sure that I have the right attitude, that I don’t yell at my teammates or the refs and that I’m always under control. It’s very helpful because when they watch a game, they don’t judge my performance the way the sports world judges it. They make sure I have a godly attitude when I play and when I don’t, they call me out on it and make me accountable. That’s just so valuable because win or lose, whether you play well or not, you want to reflect God’s image, and they hold me to that. For that I’m very grateful. I’m very blessed by God!

And Comfort Me Once More

Exactly what am feeling right now.. Psalm 71, my second favorite after Psalm 91. Here's not the full chapter of Psalm 71, only some parts that I love the most :D

In you, LORD, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame.

In your righteousness, rescue me and deliver me;
turn Your ear to me and save me.

Be my rock of refuge, to which I can always go;

give the command to save me, for You are my rock and my fortress.

Deliver me, my God, from the hand of the wicked,
from the grasp of those who are evil and cruel.

For You have been my hope, Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth.

Do not cast me away when I am old;
do not forsake me when my strength is gone.

Do not be far from me, my God; come quickly, God, to help me.

May my accusers perish in shame; may those who want to harm me
be covered with scorn and disgrace.

As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise You more and more.

I will come and proclaim Your mighty acts, Sovereign LORD;

I will proclaim Your righteous deeds, Yours alone.

Your righteousness, God, reaches to the heavens,

You who have done great things. Who is like You, God?

Though You have made me see troubles, many and bitter,

You will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth,
You will again bring me up.

You will increase my honor and comfort me once more.

I will praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, my God;

I will sing praise to you with the lyre, Holy One of Israel.

My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to You— I whom You have delivered.

My tongue will tell of Your righteous acts all day long,

for those who wanted to harm me have been put to shame and confusion.

Your Singleness Is A Blessing

Salah satu keputusan terpenting di dalam kehidupan adalah keputusan tentang pasangan hidup. Ya, hasil keputusan ini dapat membangun atau juga menghancurkan hidup seseorang. Dikatakan membangun karena persatuan dari seorang pria dan wanita dalam sebuah pernikahan adalah kehendak Tuhan yang akan mempersatukan dua potensi yang berbeda dan saling melengkapi. Dikatakan menghancurkan karena jika sampai salah memilih atau salah melangkah dalam proses menuju pernikahan kudus, kita akan kehilangan berkat Tuhan dan kebahagiaan kita. Bahkan tidak jarang hal ini berakhir di meja perceraian yang akan melukai banyak orang. –Before 30 Discipleship, pg 201.

Ribka adalah perempuan muda yang kemudian menjadi istri Ishak, anak Abraham. Abraham mengutus Eliezer untuk mencarikan istri bagi anaknya, Ishak. Ribka sangat cantik, cerdas, rajin, murah hati dan berkemauan keras. Tau dari mana? Di Kejadian 24: 12-14, Eliezer berdoa kepada Allah untuk petunjuk yang tepat dalam memilih calon istri yang terbaik untuk Ishak. Ia meminta tanda: “Kiranya terjadilah begini: anak gadis, kepada siapa aku berkata: Tolong miringkan buyungmu itu, supaya aku minum, dan yang menjawab: Minumlah, dan unta-untamu juga akan kuberi minum—dialah kiranya yang Kau tentukan bagi hamba-Mu, Ishak; maka dengan begitu akan kuketahui, bahwa Engkau telah menunjukkan kasih setia-Mu kepada tuanku itu."

Tanda yang Eliezer minta kepada Tuhan sangat spesifik dan bukan hanya sekedar tanda. Melainkan tanda yang menunjukkan adanya Godly character (rajin, rendah hati, ringan tangan, energik). Unta minum tidak sedikit loh. Berapa dari kita yang seringkali ketika jatuh cinta, meminta tanda seperti: Tuhan, kalau memang dia the one, dia akan pake baju warna ijo. Atau ... Dia akan sms saya di jam 9 malam hanya untuk say good night. Atau, “Wah tiba-tiba ketemu sama dia lagi, pasti jodoh nih emang.”

Bukan hanya ramah dan memilih hati yang mau melayani, tetapi Ribka juga sangat menjaga kekudusannya. Kejadian 24:16a mengatakan, Anak gadis itu sangat cantik parasnya, seorang perawan, belum pernah bersetubuh dengan laki-laki. Menjaga kekudusan dengan standar Tuhan adalah syarat utama untuk memiliki hubungan yang diberkati. Jika kita ingin diberkati oleh Tuhan, gaya hidup kudus adalah harga yang tidak bisa ditawar!

Hiduplah sebagai anak-anak yang taat dan jangan turuti hawa nafsu yang menguasai kamu pada waktu kebodohanmu, tetapi hendaklah kamu menjadi kudus di dalam seluruh hidupmu sama seperti Dia yang kudus, yang telah memanggil kamu, sebab ada tertulis: Kuduslah kamu, sebab Aku kudus. 1 Petrus 1:14-16

Kita berada di sebuah panggung dunia yang menawarkan berbagai bentuk pencobaan untuk anak-anak Tuhan. Pencobaan yang akan membawa kita jatuh ke dalam dosa. Iblis sudah sejak dulu berencana untuk menghancurkan pilar masyarakat yang bernama keluarga. Dia bukan saja menargetkan pasangan-pasangan yang sudah menikah, tetapi bahkan mempersiapkan kehancuran mereka sejak mereka masih lajang. –Before 30 Discipleship, pg 201.

Ribka punya standar kekudusan yang berbeda, sehingga Alkitab mencatatnya. Percayalah kalau kekudusan yang berawal dari diri kita tidak akan berakhir pada diri sendiri, malah akan membawa dampak di hubungan kita dan orang lain. Gaya hidup kudus akan mendidik kita untuk menjalin hubungan yang sehat dengan semua orang, khususnya lawan jenis.

Persahabatan yang sehat akan memudahkan kita untuk lebih mengenal kepribadian masing-masing. Dengan motivasi yang tulus akan mudah terlihat karakter yang sebenarnya. Dunia sudah mengajarkan banyak pola yang salah, seperti TTM hubungan tanpa status, bahkan berganti-ganti pacar itu normal. Ini saatnya kita menunjukkan kepada dunia, bedanya wanita dunia dan wanita Allah. Pastikanlah kita tidak memulai suatu hubungan tanpa perencanaan dan pemikiran yang matang, dan tentunya dengan satu tujuan yaitu pernikahan.

Memang tidak mudah menjaga standar kekudusan di tengah banyaknya cobaan dunia. Gak bawa pacar ke 17an kan malu banget.
“Ih, hari gini ga punya pacar? Ga laku ya lu!”
“Bah, Saturday night cuma spent sama family? Susah deh emang kutu buku!”
Nga enak pastinya mendengar kalimat semacam itu, tapi ingat … Penderitaan yang dialami karena kesepian hanyalah sementara, dibanding dengan penderitaan yang harus kita alami selamanya karena terburu-buru memilih orang. For me it’s better to wait for thousand days and have one marvelous day with my Knight in shining armor. Rather than waiting for hundred days and have another hundred of suffering days with a prince of frog.

Leslie Ludy has said before, the best way to find a Christ-like Warrior-Poet is to stop searching for one. Focus on your intimate love-relationship with Jesus Christ, and He will be more than faithful to bring a Christ-built man into your life in His own perfect time and way.

Serahkanlah perbuatanmu kepada TUHAN, maka terlaksanalah segala rencanamu. Amsal 16: 3

Carilah kebahagiaanmu pada TUHAN, Ia akan memuaskan keinginan hatimu. Mazmur 37: 4

Your singleness is a blessing. You two haven’t met yet for a reason that God is not yet done with both of you. Things that are rushed that will later be a blessing can be a curse if you get it too soon.           –Quotes.

Am I Waiting for a Guy Who Doesn't Exist

Lately I spent my free time to read trying to read out all editions of this magazine. And I found one of my favorite :) I give some of my comments and some with bold text are the one that I truly agree :D So I wanna share with you guys, hope it will blessed you! Enjoy!!

Q&A with Leslie - Am I Waiting for a Guy Who Doesn't Exist?
“Recently one of my guy friends made it known that he has feelings for me. I was honest in my answer that I couldn't see us married. We're too different and there are qualities that I need in a guy that he doesn't have. He asked me if I was one of those girls that "always thinks the grass is greener on the other side of the fence." That comment has been bothering me ever since. I've been waiting patiently for that one guy to come along that I know I could spend my life with. I've read dozens of books on compatibility and how to know yourself well enough to know who you would be good with. Do you think those books have given me too idealistic of a mindset? Am I just waiting for a guy who doesn't exist? I've never wanted to settle for less than extraordinary in my life...with relationships, God, etc. Do you think I'm holding onto an impossible fairy tale ideal, or holding out for God’s best for me?”

Leslie response:
God created marriage – and everything leading up to it – to be a picture of Heaven on earth. He created men to be a picture of the heroic manhood of Christ. He wants no less for you. No matter what the culture says, He is asking you not to settle.

But do real Christ-like Warrior-Poets really exist anymore? That’s the desperate question burning upon the heart of nearly every young woman I meet. And I can say unequivocally that they do – because I’m married to one. Is Eric the only one? (That’s the next urgent question that arises). And I can say unequivocally that he is not – because I’ve had the privilege of interacting with scores of them around this country, and I am encountering more of them all the time.

So what exactly is a Warrior-Poet?
A Warrior-Poet has made a sacred covenant with his holy King; he has chosen to deny himself, take up his cross and follow Christ. He no longer lives to please his own selfish desires; he lives to please his Lord. He is not seeking to draw attention to himself, but to draw all eyes to Jesus. As John the Baptist said, “He must increase, but I must decrease.” (John 3:30 KJV). That’s the motto of the Warrior-Poet’s life. Far more important than finding a man you are “compatible” with is finding a man after God’s own heart. When God writes the love story, the compatibility factor takes care of itself.

When I was first getting to know Eric, I saw a marked difference between the way he treated me and the way almost every other guy on the planet did. For one thing, he wasn’t pursuing the opposite sex. He was pursuing Christ. The majority of his time was spent in prayer, in Biblical study, and in serving God’s kingdom on the mission field. In spite of his dynamic personality, he never sought to gain applause or be the center of attention. He didn’t seek out attractive young women. Rather, he sought out the loners and the outcasts; those that no one paid attention to. At a party or church get-together, he would often spend his entire evening in the corner, encouraging someone that everyone else had overlooked. Money had no hold upon him. While other young men his age pursued success and wealth, Eric gave all of his money away and depended upon God alone for provision. I vividly remember one time when a money-hungry multi-level marketer cornered Eric and asked him what kind of car he dreamed of driving. Eric shrugged and said, “I just need a car that runs.” The salesman was stunned that Eric wasn’t pining after a BMW like every other college-age guy he knew. (sinting keren abis ini!!)

Eric didn’t flirt – with me or any other girl. He’d made a commitment to honor and respect his future wife. Even in his friendships with girls, though he was friendly, he was careful not to draw their hearts toward him. He was set-apart – first for Christ and then for his future wife.

Not long before I met him, God had taken Eric through a process of laying down every “idol” in his life. In college, he’d been in a pre-med program, at the top of his class. In the midst of all his forward momentum, God asked him to lay down his money and career pursuits and give his life on the mission field. Eric’s obedience caused many raised eyebrows among his peers – but his spiritual life went from mediocre to vibrant in a matter of weeks.

It was Eric’s willingness to lay down everything for Christ that shaped him into a Warrior-Poet. As he laid down all worldly allurements and learned to love his Lord with all his heart, soul, mind and strength, he became a mighty, valiant, loving, compassionate man of God. No longer was he just a church-going, self-focused male with a Christian label. He was radically abandoned to the King of the Universe – and every area of his life exuded the glory of Christ.

That’s the kind of man you should hold out for.
Every time I was around Eric, I found that afterwards I was not thinking about Eric Ludy. I was thinking about Jesus Christ. Often after spending an hour or two listening to him passionately talk about the Word of God – I ended up in my room with my Bible, eagerly pouring over the Scriptures and seeking to know Christ more. 
(I think this is how the healthy relationship works)Unlike anyone I had ever known, Eric Ludy drew me closer to Jesus. In fact, his example was a key factor in my own decision to live a radically surrendered life for Christ. Don’t ask the question, “am I compatible with this guy?” but rather, “does this guy put Jesus Christ first above all else, and does he lead me closer and closer to my true Prince?”

A lot of young women complain to me that, while they might take my word that Warrior-Poets do exist, they never see any men like that. This is largely because true Warrior-Poets cannot be found amidst the throngs of typical “Christian” males. As I wrote in my book Authentic Beauty:
Christ-like Warrior-Poets aren’t usually mixed in with all the other mediocre males. They are living set-apart lives, just as our Prince has called us to do. They aren’t often found in the normal crowds at typical guy-girl hangouts. They don’t seek the spotlight. They aren’t in hot pursuit of girls; they don’t try to satisfy their loneliness with relationships. Christ-like Warrior-Poets are found on their knees in hidden retreats with their King, or on the battlefield of human service, or in diligent study of their Lord’s ways. (p 159)
And as I have said before, the best way to find a Christ-like Warrior-Poet is to stop searching for one. Focus on your intimate love-relationship with Jesus Christ, and He will be more than faithful to bring a Christ-built man into your life in His own perfect time and way. It’s amazing how God brings like-minded men and women together when we actually step back and give Him the chance to work.

Many young women ask me how high their standards for a guy should be. Is a Warrior-Poet one who perfectly reflects the manhood of Jesus Christ? What if there are still evidences of selfishness or immaturity in his life? Does that mean he’s not the real thing?

The mark of a Warrior-Poet does not lie in his perfection, but in the direction of his life. Is he aimed toward the world, or aimed toward Christ? Is he eagerly pursuing more of Christ, or is he preoccupied with himself? If his life direction is pointed toward “less of me and more of Him” than he has the Warrior-Poet blood within his veins, even if God has not yet rasped and refined all the rough edges of his masculinity. If he has made Christ the center of his existence, then Christ will be faithful to smooth away the wrinkles and refine him more and more into His divine likeness.

Christ-built Warrior-Poets do exist in today’s world! And God asks us to trust Him enough to bring one into our life in His own perfect time and way; not to settle for anything less than His very best for us.


Gw ini sangat amat parah dalam menghapal jalan. Udah 2 sampai 3 kali pun gw bisa gak hapal-hapal. Kelemahan gw yang satu ini cukup bisa dikatakan sangat kronis!! Dan yang pasti karena hal ini gw jadi sering nyasar juga. Di Singapore pun begitu. Salah naek bus lah, salah muter lah, dll.

Dan kemaren ini gw abis anterin temen gw ke airport. Gw harus balik sendiri ke home without no one accompany me. Dan gw super deg2an, Its my first time gw harus jalan sendiri di kawasan yang unfamiliar buat gw. Walau di Singapore sering melalang buana, gw ga tegang or worry sama sekali tuh, why? Because Singapore is so small and safe! Mao malem-malem juga, pake celana pendek and kaos orang mah ga peduli (is not am encourage you to do so yah) but Singapore terkenal dengan Negara yang tertib, bersih dan aman!

Nah kemarin ini gw super deg2an pas harus pulang sendiri. Scared? Hmm.. is not the exact word to express. I feel so insecure. Beberapa kali gw minggir ke bahu jalan just to make a call which way should I go.. Bener2 super ngeri loh! Yang bikin gw ngeri adalah.. you know, I know lah ya.. Jakarta parahnya gimana.. in terms of crime, belon lagi kalo gw salah jalan, Jakarta tuh gede bok.. belon lagi macet2nya.. manthap..

Dari kejadian ini gw jadi mengerti satu hal.. orang yang tersesat adalah orang yang tidak tahu ia ada dimana. Bukan orang yang tahu dia mau kemana.
Contohnya gw.. gw jelas-jelas tau gw mau pulang. Dan berkali2 gw berenti di bahu jalan dikarenakan gw ga tau gw ada dimana, dan harus ambil jalan yang mana. Haruskah belok kiri ke pluit atau lurus ke tanjung priok?

Di dalam kehidupan kita sebagai pengikut Tuhan, kita tau dengan jelas tujuan kita.. menyenangkan hati Tuhan, menjadi penyebar kabar baik, menyelamatkan banyak jiwa2, dsb. Namun seringkali baik sadar ataupun tidak sadar kita tersesat.. Tersesat itu bisa disebabkan karena: kesibukan, cobaan2 yg datang, prioritas, komitmen, and you named it by yourself. So here I am, I want to encourage all of you to stand still and know He is God..

Mungkin banyak kejadian di hidup kalian yang memungkinkan kalian untuk tersesat, baik sadar ataupun tidak. But lets make a u-turn.. no matter how bad your past is.. how many mistake you’ve done. Broken hearts broken life, He will take them all. So come to the father :D always remember that God is love.. He is all in all. He is your strong tower in time of your weakness.. He is your rock, your fortress to which you can always go (psalm 71:3) He will never forsake you never leave you, tho the world may fall. (Hebrew 13:5) He is always with you and hold you by your right hand (psalm73:23)
