Solution To A Challenge


, , ,

New challenge came in, and with God, I’m now ready to accept and face it. 🙂

Challenge is just around, it occurs from our wrong decisions, how we react on certain circumstance, and sometimes suddenly it just arise.

That scenario, when you cannot do anything but to face it, win over it, and get the best learning out from it.

I’m currently in the first stage of wholeheartedly accepting and facing the challenge God wants me to overcome. Typical human being don’t enjoy being put into challenge, it is stressing, physically, emotionally and mentally tiring. But we can never escape from it, it is part of our lives.

We tend to question God, how He allow these things to happen, but in reality, unknowingly these challenges are for our own benefit. IT IS REALLY HARD TO SAY THAT, personally, being one of those many who currently struggling over it, it is not easy.

Last night during our evening service, God literally talked to me through His words. Preaching was all about God’s Word being our best option taking the “right” direction in life.

My pastor said “In the Word of God you can never go wrong”

Indeed that moment my heart was filled with gratitude, for God has given me the opportunity to experience again His work in me, through the challenge I have now.

When Paul said “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. ~ Philippians 4:19” God of all riches will do it for us.

When my bible says “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. ~ Jeremiah 33:3” God will hear and answer us in His own time and will.

When His word says “For with God nothing shall be impossible ~ Luke 1:37” Believe that all is possible with God!

Solutions to our challenge are given to us through the Word of God, nothing more, nothing less. All we need, is to hear Him, trust Him and seek His word daily, until we win over that challenge, and be ready again for another one.

With this, somehow the Lord made me feel excited on how He will deliver us (me and my family) out from it. How this process will make us closer to Christ, and mold us to be like Him. It will be tough, but definitely along with Jesus victory is at end 🙂

“But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. ~ 1 Corinthians 15:57”

His Word is forevermore! “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. ~ Matthew 24:35″

Proverbs 6:22-23 When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee. For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life.

What does really matter?


, , , , ,

We do all have our own concern

Our own belief, and perception

Came out from different nation

Grow up in unique foundation

We spend time on things that matter

Matter that builds our character

Character that creates wonder

And so what does really matter?

In that case your right is my right

Fairness should always be at sight

But why do we feel so deprive

This world is like will soon collide

Life is a gift from God above

For us to live, His grace and love

What does really matter to God,

That should really matter to us!

God’s Perfect Timing|Between Life & Death


, , , , ,

Between life and death is TIME…

Time is infinite, it exist even before we were born, and will still be there after we die; TIME is beyond our control.

It will go on, and on and on, regardless of how much we want to stop or forward it. Instead of fighting and opposing time, let’s just live with it.

Freedom to live, freedom to choose, wanting the best this life could ever lose.

The Lord gave us the freewill to live our own lives. What a great opportunity for us to give that life back to Christ!

To let Him rule our heart, mind and soul; experience His grace and love until eternity, which time cannot hold.

The only way we can experience the best things in this life is by giving our lives to Christ.

We may think that the reason why God gave this life is for us to live on our own, but what He really wants us to do is to ENTRUST it back to Him for us to show how ETERNAL LIFE works.

LIFE eternity is only found in Christ Who overcomes death, the only One Who can make each day out of its best.

Don’t waste your time, assure your eternal life through and by accepting Jesus Christ!

Live each day leaning on His grace, rejoice and cherish His presence everyday. 🙂

This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. ~ Psalms 118:24

God’s Perfect Timing|God’s Time


, , , , ,

this is our time

After watching this movie I believe below statement is worth sharing. 😉

“One day you thought you all figure it out, and then you realize, there is something even better, because God is there. One day follows the next, good times and bad times. Times when your dreams were on hold, and times when they come true. Times when you feel alone and times when you feel love overwhelming. Times where you make sacrifices and times where you’re overwhelm with blessings, because you’re obedient, and God is there. He takes all this time and He works in you, He works through you. Give it all to Him, because this is His time”


God’s Perfect Timing|God’s Counsel


, , , , ,


When God start to work, expect that He’ll finish it up to the end. When things fall into what we’re praying for, we praise God with all our hearts, and give back all the glory to Him.

But hey, when things suddenly torn apart AGAIN, our mind and heart start to clash. The praise turned out into questions, we start to linger in the pain, as if a gift was taken back away.

One thing God reminded me these past days, that HE IS IN CONTROL. As always, He never let go of that stirring wheel where we all ride at the back when we decided to follow Him.

There will be bumpy roads even accidents we may face, along the way, but hey, GOD IS WITH US! 🙂

We don’t have to know why God allow bad things to happen. Christ did not ask the Father why He had to die that way, all Jesus did was that He TRUST and OBEY the Father. ❤

God is SOVEREIGN! If we thought where planning and heading for the best, we must also remember that it’s nothing compare to what the Lord has prepared for each and every one of us.

This was the best counsel time God and I had, and I know there will be a lot more of this one to one with Him. 🙂

Praise God for His enlightening words, that comforted my weary heart. ❤

ღ There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand. ~ Proverbs 19:21

Hide And Seek


, , , ,


We cannot hide nor run away from God.

“Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD. ~ Jeremiah 23:24”

God said to Jonah, go to Nineveh, but Jonah went to Tarshish. (Jonah 1:1-2)

Jonah tried to hide and run away from God’s command. But in the end find himself still doing it anyway.

Men love to do things on their own, even instructions were given, still, they do things on their own.

The funny thing is, upon trouble after doing their own act, they tend to end up calling for help, thus went fort still doing what they’ve instructed them to do.

Running away from God’s will is a waste of time and effort. It’s like wasting for an opportunity to maturity.

No matter how we hide ourselves from God, everyone must know that “God knows everything!” even before we think.

“..but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. ~ Hebrews 4:11b”

Obedience is the key to good conscience.

Following instructions prevent us to do mistakes; delivering us out from trouble; and leading us to peacefulness.

Don’t walk out from the boundary of God’s will, you may still encounter hardships, yes, but the hope of deliverance can hold you still as you know you’re within His will. 🙂

Instead of hiding from God, why not seek God?! 😉

ღ For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. ~ Jeremiah29:11


God’s Perfect Timing|Growing Up


, , ,


Time to grow…

ღ A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted ~ Ecclesiastes 3:2

Every seed has the opportunity to grow and be a fruitful plant.

It needs water, it needs sun, and it takes time to grow.

But thorns and pests are just around, so it needs care from Someone Who would give time and love to help that little plant to grow.


It is necessary for a plant to be pruned, to remove unnecessary twigs for it to bear fruit.

A believer’s maturity is like a plant, it requires growth and fruits.

God feeds us everyday by His word, and spend His time watching over us.

But are we really growing?

As God prune us, we often misinterpret it. As if He doesn’t care at all. But actually He wants us to bear fruit.

It takes faith for us to bear and endure God’s pruning, to grow and bear fruit. Because at the end of the day, as we see the fruit God has given, we’re able to see our purpose.

Enabling us to be fruitful in His vineyard. 🙂

It’s now time for you and me to grow, and bear fruits.

ღ Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul. ~ Psalms 25:1

Calmness Within


, , , ,

When the circumstances turn against us, it’s very natural for us to panic. We sometimes pretend we’re strong enough to deal with it, and yet inside we’re being torn. Lost on where to start picking ourselves back up, as if hope can’t be found along the way.

A believer knew that God can deliver him out from any kind of despair, but it is another thing for a believer to know that God can calm him during his time of trouble.

There is this one song that comforted me this days as the storm rage along my way, entitled “Sometimes He Calms the Storm”. Exactly in the midst of wellness rain started to pour.

“All who sail the sea of faith
Find out before too long
How quickly blue skies can grow dark
And gentle winds grow strong”

Common reaction would be worry, yet seeking God’s presence along the sail.

“Suddenly fear is like white water
Pounding on the soul
Still we sail on knowing
That our Lord is in control”

The Comforter cannot fail us…

“Sometimes He calms the storm
With a whispered peace be still
He can settle any sea
But it doesn’t mean He will
Sometimes He holds us close
And let the wind and waves go wild
Sometimes He calms the storm
And other times He calms His child”

We don’t have to know everything, for with God we can learn anything, things we just need to know.

“He has a reason for each trial
That we pass through in life
And though we’re shaken
We cannot be pulled apart from Christ”

And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. ~ John 10:28 

“No matter how the driving rain beats down
On those who hold to faith
A heart of trust will always
Be a quiet peaceful place”

Just would like to share the song that blessed me, and looking forward that it would also bless you. 🙂

Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. ~ 1 John 4:4
