Stop This Train

So I've been listening to this song called "Stop This Train" over and over again for these past few weeks. This song has made me really think of this life. Just like John Mayer, sometimes I just want to stop the train and get off and go home. But we know that we can never stop the time, life is moving so fast and we are incapable to stop the time. Suddenly this question showed up in my mind "Yem, what do you want to do for God with the time that you have?" Sometimes we get caught up with the busyness of this world and we forget that this train of life will eventually stop at one point. In the book of Ecclesiastes, it says that everything under the sun is meaningless. We don't remember what happened in the past and in future generations, no one will remember what we are doing now (Ecclesiastes 1:11) but I like how Solomon closed the chapter of this book, he wrote "Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey His commands". Wow! I know sometimes we feel like we're in this train of life that's moving so fast and sometimes we feel like everything that we do will be meaningless once we reach our "final destination". But remember if you fear God and obey His commands, when the train stops you will never regret of the long journey that you took with the train!

Long Distance Relationship

Long Distance Relationship
Many people say that long distance relationships stink.. It is true but there are also benefits of having a long distance relationship. Today I want to encourage those who are in a long distance relationship that it doesn’t always have to stink. There are things that also good in a long distance relationship: -You will not take that person for granted. You will value each moment that you spend together. I remember when Austin was here for 2 weeks, everyday felt so special. Even casual things such as having lunch together, doing my work, going to church felt so special. (Writing this makes me miss him so much..) -It helps you to keep your purity. I don’t know about you, but it is a struggle to almost every couple to remain pure while they’re dating. When I say pure, it’s not only “not having sex before marriage”, but it’s also anything close to that (Fondling, Caressing, etc). I always view long distance relationships as a blessing in disguise (It is really a…

Expect the great things!

“Ah tomorrow’s gonna be another long tiring day..”
“This is gonna get harder..”
Sounds familiar? I don’t know about you, but sometimes I can get so stressed out about tomorrow.. I worry about tomorrow too much that I can’t enjoy today. It’s so easy for me to think about how things won’t change in the future and it’s gonna be hard.

            Those who know me from the outside might think that I’m so positive and optimistic about life. But, honestly, so many times I feel afraid of the future.. Until yesterday, I was thinking about the future and I just realized that I was so negative! I was filled with so many fears, worries and doubts. Then I asked myself, “If I could imagine the bad things that can happen, why don’t I just imagine the good things?”. In life, there will be challenges and hardships but don't have low expectations in life just because we live in this fallen world. I don't want to spend my time worrying about the future. Instead, from now on, I will always exp…

Set-Apart Woman (True Purity)

"True Purity is so much more than a Christian rule to endure. True purity is so much more than the noble decision to wait for a future spouse. True purity is complete set-apartness for our heavenly Prince. True purity comes only when we fall into the loving arms of our Jesus Christ, surrender ourselves fully to Him, and allow Him to tenderly shape us into His likeness." -Leslie Ludy from Authentic Beauty.

I can't agree more with Leslie on this definition of true purity. "Purity" is not the most favorite topic for young people. As a matter of fact, the topic of purity sounds too serious and boring for them. It makes sense. In this modern era, having purity is something that is not common. People will think that there's something wrong with you that causes you to keep your purity. When I first told someone that I had never kissed anybody, she was like "What? Why?" she didn't get it because nowadays, when you're dating someone, kissing is jus…
