Dream Big Dreams? No, Dream with big God!

Well, I guess this blog won’t be titled “Dream Big Dreams” if I don’t talk about dreams! I talk about dreams a lot but I realized I should be talking more about the Dream-Giver, Jesus Christ! So many times in our lives (especially my life) we’re too focused on reaching our dream that we forget above all that, it’s more important to focus on Jesus, the Dream-Giver. When our dream doesn’t come to pass, we will be disappointed and dragged down in a deep deep pit if we miss the main point! The main point is not about reaching your dream but the main point is being drawn to Jesus in the journey of reaching that dream! If our dream doesn’t draw us closer to God, then there must be something wrong with it. It’s either we’ve been so caught up in the obsession of achieving that dream or that the dream is not even God’s will for us. How many times in our lives we can’t differentiate between obsession and commitment. Obsession is when we are stressed out because things don’t go the way we planned and we still try to make those things happen but commitment is when things don’t go the way we planned but we choose to still be happy, relax and trust in God. That’s commitment. Today I want to choose commitment over obsession. I want to be committed to God, to His plan and to His decree and won’t be obsessed with my dream, no matter how perfect or “glorifying God” it may sound. Sometimes it seems like I already understood the Christian’s “Christian thing” but actually nothing is more Christian then surrendering our lives to Christ!

Surrender = paradosi (greek) = giving up = submitting = abiding


The act of surrendering is actually not just a one-time act, I learned that the act of surrendering should be practiced on a daily basis. Surrender, surrender, surrender until it becomes a habit and then becomes a character, a character of someone who’s truly surrendered to Christ and His will.

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…
