We fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen (2 Corinthians 4:18).

So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.

I thank God for life.

Earlier today, when I was getting ready for church I opened facebook and read a shocking news about the missing AirAsia plane flying from Surabaya to Singapore. My jaw dropped. It is the airline which I most frequently fly with. I had no word to describe it but to scroll and scroll facebook page to know more news about it. Then I remember…

Just last night, I was talking with a friend about to board on a plane from Moscow to Cologne. And he and I were upset because his flight was delayed due bad weather in Frankfrut. We said in unison how sucks it was.

I felt my cheeks got warmed almost as if God slapped me in the face. I shouldn’t complaint about anything because I wouldn’t know about anything that might happen.

Oh, I thank God for life. Yes, for some, you might want to end yours (been there) but if we were patient God might use His time to reveal marveloua things.

In everything Give Thanks! Always remember that, Lenti.

Praying for the families of the AirAsia incident. May the gracious God fills your hollow soul. Amen.

How’s the journey going?

will my journey leave prints?

will my journey leave prints?

I almost hated myself, when I realized that I almost lost my ODJ for the second time. ODJ, published by RBC ministry is my daily devotional book. Last three months I lost one, but by God’s grace I got another one. It turned out that one of my house maids kept it upstairs together with some old newspapers. Gazing to the cover, my eyes caught the verses written there. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.” [Proverbs 3:5-6]. It really stroked me. But what’s more heart wrenching was when I read the editor’s note. Just a simple question and I was almost burst in tears. “How’s the journey going?” That simple question directed me to write this post.

A simple sharing to remind myself, that, it’s okay to get down as long as you remember to get up.
