If My People Pray

leave a comment »

If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. – 2 Chronicles 7:14 –

I have been wondering on how my prayers can be heard, maybe you have been wondering too. And today, He says it bluntly to me through a song and Scripture reading. Literally I “only” need to humble myself, pray, seek His face and turn from wicked ways. It’s no time and place to ask again. I need to do it, then He will hear…


Happy Sunday people. Do as He told.

Right after I sent it, I got a phone call. The country area number almost made my heart stopped. It was from a country where I dreamnt to live at. It was actually a call from my friend. As surprising as it was, I was very delighted. Ah! Thank you for your care and love for me.

14 Ways To Handle A Christian Introvert

leave a comment »

…if you do, we are loyal to you for life.

J.S. Park: Hospital Chaplain, Skeptical Christian


If you ever met me, you would think I was an extrovert — I preach, I lead praise, I talk to everyone, I talk too much, and you can hear me laughing from across the street — but I am a full-blooded introvert.

If it were up to me, I’d rather be in my boxers all day eating Godiva while browsing food photo blogs and bothering my dog and cracking up at YouTube videos of Whose Line Is ItAnyway and leaving dry ironic comments all over Facebook while reading the latest theory on how Sherlock survived the second season finale. 

I intensely guard my personal space and my private life.  It takes a herculean effort to step outside my comfort zone and interact with messy, fleshy, real live human beings.

Here’s how you handle us.

Giving A Person More Attention Because They’re Attractive: And We All Do It

leave a comment »

We all, indeed, do it!

J.S. Park: Hospital Chaplain, Skeptical Christian

Ever prayed more for someone just because they’re hot?

Come on, I’ve done that too. Let’s not act like we’re above judging looks here. We give more cred to someone based on their defined jawline and thinner waist than their less tangible patience and hospitality and compassion.

A very fleshy part of our human nature presumes that good-looking people are also just good, or that less good-looking people don’t really count somehow.

In church it’s easy to ask for prayer requests from the well-off, well-dressed, clean-cut, easily approachable mid-twenties demographic. Not the weird cat lady off the street, not the dude with the one rotten tooth who talks up a storm, not the pale socially awkward kid who says dorky things.

Most Christian books have the same problem: they’re geared to that same easygoing group of believers who attend the same megachurch in a crimeless suburban gated neighborhood with the…

Mak Beng

leave a comment »

mak beng 2I was on a weekend trip to Bali last month. It was a hassle preparing a trip to Bali in such a short period of time-not that it was not my fault though. hehehe.. 😀

Thankfully, I had a friend who lived there that I could BBM to ask one or two on-the-go tips, including places to visit. One of the places she mentioned was Mak Beng.

Mak Beng is a small diner nearby Sanur Beach, Bali. It is located at Jalan Hang Tuah No. 45, Sanur, but most drivers in Bali would not know addresses, apparently. The easiest way to go there is by finding drivers who know Mak Beng. Or tell the driver that it is located on Sanur Beach, 20 m from Inna Beach Hotel. Then, they would not miss it! 🙂

“Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a yesr there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will liveband do this or that.” As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil. (James 4:13-16)

I am experiencing what people would call unbearable regrets. I call it unbearable because I have not stop crying ever since I realize what I have done. Indeed, losing something that you never have is nothing compared to losing something that you have.
