"True love begins when nothing is looked for in return." ~ Antoine De Saint-Exupery ~

Simple words, but how many understand? Even if they do understand, how many people actually can I that? Why do people make it so hard to love? Why do people betray their love ones? What do love actually mean to all those people? Looking at friends around me and I know how fortunate I am to have someone that loves me the way I love him. To me he's like a dream come true, all that I've ever wanted. Isn't it great to have someone that cheer you when you are down? I always thought that having someone = to enhance your life and not make your life goes down. I'm kinda upset for my friends around me who's partner can't give them that kinda love, but why after so much that I've told them, they still choose that kinda path? I know that they can find someone better, they deserve to be love just like anyone else, but why do they always love the wrong one?

Just Tell The Story
While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit." Then he fell on his knees and cried out, "Lord, do not hold this sin against them." When he had said this, he fell asleep.
And Saul was there, giving approval to his death.
On that day a great persecution broke out against the church at Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria. Godly men buried Stephen and mourned deeply for him. But Saul began to destroy the church. Going from house to house, he dragged off men and women and put them in prison.
Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went. Philip went down to a city in Samaria and proclaimed the Christ there. When the crowds heard Philip and saw the miraculous signs he did, they all paid close attention to what he said. With shrieks, evil spirits came out of many, and many paralytics and cripples were healed. So there was great joy in that city. (Act 7:59-8:8)

The main character in the movie Up Close And Personal is a TV newsman who of the world's trouble spots. After his death, he is remembered for saying, "I once thought reporting was about glory. But I'm here for only one reason - to tell the story."
In Acts 8, we read that Jerusalem's Christians were scattered abroad to escape persecution. Everywhere they went, they preached the message of Christ (v.4). Saul, their persecutor, was later converted and became an apostle. Toward the end of his life, Saul, also known as Paul, decided to go to Jerusalem, where he knew he would be persecuted. But he remained undeterred, declaring that his purpose was "to testify to the gospel of the grace of God" (Acts 20:24).
God still calls people to tell the good news of Jesus to those who don't know Him. In his book The Conversion Of The Church, Samuel Shoemaker states, "The demand is human heart-hunger. The supply is the grace of God. We are only distributors." But we don't work alone or with mere human energy. God is working is us (Philippians 2:13).
When witnessing for Christ, may it be with love and humility - motivated by a desire for His glory, not our own. We're just here to tell the story. - Joanie Yoder

I love to tell the story,
For some have never heard
The message of salvation
From God's own holy Word. - Hankey

God has left us in the world to witness to the world.

To Angela Tan Yan Shan
I know that you are out of reach and we couldn't get you too. I also know that you do check out blog once in a blue moon. I really hope that you see this.

Maine and I worries about you almost everyday. Everytime we meet out/call each other, there was never a time you were not mention. You know how worried we are for you don't you? We really do not want you to live your life like that, though we know it's your choice, but you do know we care, far more than him does.

Frankly speaking, we never wanted you to be with that guy, he can't give you happiness but pain. Even us as a friend, we could not bear to see you tears (at least if you do, we'll cry with you), and it hurt us seeing you like that. I always wanted all my friends to be happy as I believe everyone deserve to be love. Don't throw away your happiness. YOU CAN BE LOVE TOO.

Love is not about taking charge of your partner's life, but to bring joy to them, to understand them. I don't see that happening to you, instead, you are slowly drifting a part from your friends and families, that's too much of a control. You are a sensible girl my dear and you should know what's right and what's wrong. Though people always say, love is blind, but it doesn't mean that you have to really love blindly till the extend that even when he abuse you, you still give in. By acting this way, you are only hurting yourself and those people around you who cares for you.

Honey, I just want you to know, we all cares for you and loves you way more than that guy would ever love. We really hope you would make a right decision for yourself and your little one. He's not the one for you my dear. Just to let you know if you have forgotten. We(Maine and I) will always be here for you, anytime, anywhere, just give us a call. Even if you do not, visit your mom often, don't hurt her anymore.

I should have a little more faith in my Father, probably not little more but all my faith. He have answered my prayer everytime, making EVERYTHING and yes I'm serious when I said EVERYTHING possible for me. He laid down every single path for me SO SO WELL that I do not have to go through any pain. I'm starting to love this little relationship with my Father. He's so great. People who have experience him might know what I'm talking about. Just yesterday, I went for my body check up as my company requires me to, and I was super worried about having to take the blood test. I was worried that my anemia would affect my job too, but guess what, everything goes well. I don't even have to bear the pain of having the injection poke into my skin. The fear, the pain, whatever you can think of. You don't know how amazing it is till you experience all this yourself. Friends/family member that read my blog, I really do hope that you guys are willing to turn yourself to Christ. It's really a wonderful thing, trust me. You will have unlimited joy and you'll never have to be worried about anything, and it's true when I said ANYTHING. It's all in the hands of our God, the Almighty. He knows us well to know what we are afraid of, what kind of situation we are in. If you seek him, he will sure be there for you. There's so much He have done for me already, though I'm just a new Christian. He never leave me alone to fight my own battle, He's ALWAYS there. This kind of relationship is so so much better than anything else. If you think that your relationship with your parents/spouse is wonderful, this is even better. You know that He will never abandon you, will never let you down nor will He hurt you in any way. It's a great thing to me and I love it a lot. Thank You for everything my Father :)

Think About It

Reading and Meditation
Therefore, my brothers, you whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, that is how you should stand firm in the Lord, dear friends!
I plead with Euodia and I plead with Syntyche to agree with each other in the Lord. Yes, and I ask you, loyal yokefellow, help these women who have contended at my side in the cause of the gospel, along with Clement and the rest of my fellow workers, whose names are in the book of life.
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me - put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. (Philippians 4:1-9)

According to one little boy, "Thinking is when your mouth stays shut and your head keeps talking to itself."
The way our head talks to itself tells a lot about how we are doing morally and spiritually. To guard our mid and to keep out the influences that will hinder our walk with God is to use our mind in the way He desires.
The Bible gives us clear guidelines - spelling out the kinds of things we should think about. For example, Psalm 1:2 and Psalm 119:97 tell us to meditate on God's Word day and night. That should be our first priority in the thinking department.
But we have a life to live, and we can't spend all of our waking moments meditating on Scripture. Yet even when we are thinking about the mundane aspects of life, we need guidance. Paul told us that we should think about things that are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtuous, and praiseworthy (Philippians 4:8). In our daily activities, those words should govern what is on our mind.
When our head "talks to itself," it needs to say, "Keep the impure and ungodly thoughts out of here!" When we're thinking that way, we'll know what to do, how to behave, where to go, and what to say. - Dave Branon

Let us think about what's good -
What's right and pure and true;
May God's Word control our thoughts
In everything we do. - Fitzhugh

But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law he meditates day and night. (Psalm 1:2)

Oh, how I love your law!
I meditate on it all day long. (Psalm 119:97)

Right thinking leads to right living.

Salvation in a sentence

Reading and Meditation
Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess. He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God's house Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself. For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. Moses was faithful as a servant in all God's house, testifying to what would be said in the future. But Christ is faithful as a son over God's house. And we are his house if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast.
So, as the Holy Spirit says:
"Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden our hearts
as you did in the rebellion,
during the time of testing in the desert,
where your fathers tested and tried me and for forty years saw what I did.
That is why I was angry with that generation,
and I said, 'Their hearts are always going astray,
and they have not known my ways'
So I declared on oath in my anger,
'They shall never enter my rest.' "
See to it, brothers that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. But encourage one another daily, as long as it called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness. We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly till the end the confidence we had at first. As has just been said:
"Today , if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts
as you did in the rebellion." (Hebrews 3:1-15)

'We will never be able to understand the gospel,' said a lecturer at the college where I trained for the ministry, 'until we can condense it into a single sentence.' When I first heard him make that statement I thought to myself, 'If the gospel can be condensed into a single sentence, then why do I need to spend these years training for the ministry?' Later I came to see what he meant: putting something into a single sentence is a way of showing how clearly we comprehend its essential features.
Whenever I am asked what are the essential features of salvation my mind immediately goes to the words of Jesus on the cross: 'Today you will be with me in paradise' (Luke 23:43). Take His first word: 'Today.' That suggests salvation is immediate and present. Notice there was no delay between the request from the thief - 'Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom' (Luke 23:42) - and the Master's reply. Christ did not say to him, 'I'm sorry, but you do not have enough time to prepare yourself for paradise. If you had come to Me earlier, when I could have instructed you and made you one of My disciples, I might have been able to help. Now, however, it's too late.'
Oh, the wonder of eternal salvation! It never asks us to make ourselves better before we come to God, never puts us on a period of moral probation, never postpones acceptance until some long or painful process of purification has been accomplished. The old hymn puts it beautifully when it says:
The vilest offender who truly believes
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.
That moment!

O God, how can I sufficiently thank You for the immediacy of Your gospel? Other faiths would first send me away to work on improving my character; You receive me just as I am. And in that I rejoice. In Christ's name. Amen.


Nica is my name ♥
