The Other Prodigal Son

​​11 Jesus continued: “There was a man who had two sons. 12 The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’ So he divided his property between them. 13 “Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living. 14 After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need. 15 So he went […]

Week 2. A song that reminds you of your most recent ex-boyfriend/girlfriend

It’s week 2 of our weekly challenge and I must admit that I’m quite excited to share the song I’m thinking about for this topic. Well…. Since I never had an ex-bf, I’ll just share the song that reminds me of ex-office crush, haha! I used to sing this song in my head whenever I see him pass by in front of me (literally) to buy something from my officemate’s store. Just listen to the […]

Day 17. What are your spiritual beliefs and how do they impact your relationships/relationship status?

Welcome back to this long overdue challenge! I only have two verses in mind when it comes to my spiritual beliefs and my relationships. The first one is 1 Timothy 5:1-2, which is my guiding principle for cultivating godly relationships in general, and the second one is 2 Corinthians 6:14, which is my guiding principle for romantic relationships. On godly relationships Do not rebuke an older man harshly, but exhort him as if he were your father. Treat younger […]

University Adversity

​A. W. Tozer once wrote, “It is doubtful whether God can bless a man greatly until he has hurt him deeply.” God has a mission for your life and mine. But before we can carry out that mission, we will often go through the boot camp of adversity. If this is where you find yourself today, ask God to give you His grace to walk through this time with you. He promised He would never […]

Am I Ready to be Poured Out as an Offering?

I’ve  been taught that following Jesus is costly. I’ve always known this in theory because Jesus himself said this to His disciples a lot of times. Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. (Matthew 16:24) “Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than […]

Thank you, 2016

I celebrated New Year with a thankful heart. As I was saying two days ago, I’m having mixed emotions about the coming year because of uncertainties. Thank God because after I’ve written that previous post and after I uttered a short prayer to God, I finally have this peace in my heart reassuring me that I need not to be afraid of the future. This was also confirmed during my quiet time this morning when […]
