It's Worth It!


Last Saturday at church, our reading was from Psalm 73. It was the question that most of us ask to God, “Why do good things happen to bad people and why do bad things happen to good people?” It was a really interesting question. However for me, the more interesting thing is that sometimes, without realizing it, we see ourselves good/even better than other people while actually we all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God (Romans 3:23). I’m just going to use “I” instead of “we” in these next few sentences, because I do believe that these next few words are for me. Sometimes I thought I get good things because I do good things. That’s not how it works. God gives me good things because HE IS good. God doesn’t differentiate the righteous and the unrighteous. Of course we (believers) will have eternal life once we accept Him as our God and live according to His will but, God is good to everyone. The question that we must ask ourselves or let me say the question that I have to ask myself is: ‘WHY do I do good things?’ When bad things happen to us as a devoted Christian, that’s when we have to check our motives. Problem is not always a test from God. Problem is something that we face as long as we live in this fallen earth. However, I do believe (this is not an easy thing to say) that in the midst of our problems, that’s when we can really see our character and our faith in Christ. I once heard a preacher says that problem does not only SHAPE our character, but also SHOWS our character. In this case, problem shows our true motive in serving Him. I’m only 22 and I still have so much to learn.. I wish I could have understood all of this in my early age or back in the days when I was still in elementary/junior high.. When I was still in school sometimes I put people in the ‘boxes’. The truth is God has smashed those ‘boxes’ or ‘labels’. When Jesus came to this earth, He already smashed all the boxes and labels, now He also wants us to smash those boxes and love all people. Instead of being envy to those people that we label as ‘bad’ or those who do not have the kind of relationship that we have with God, why don’t we love them? J I haven’t written for a while so I thought I just wanna share this with you! Hope you’ll be blessed!

P.S: If you happen to ask the same question that Asaph asked in Psalm 73:13-14 “Why am I keeping my heart pure? Is it worth it?” the answer is “It’s worth it!” One day we will see God face to face and hear Him say “Well done, my good and faithful child!”

Oh how I can’t wait for that day! J

Surface Skin Habit

Surface Skin Habit


Hi girls! Jumat lalu, aku berkesempatan untuk mencoba Hydra Facial di Surface Skin Habit yang berlokasi di lantai dasar Cilandak Townsquare (Citos). Tempatnya lucu & cozy bangeet..


Aku ingin share sedikit nih tentang pengalaman-ku waktu facial untuk pertama kali di Surface Skin Habit :)

Pas pertama kali masuk, langsung suka banget sama atmosphere and ambience-nya yang super homey and cozy. Staff-nya juga ramah banget so I really feel welcomed there..

When I first got there, yang mereka lakuin adalah men-register data aku.. Nama, Umur, Riwayat alergi kulit dsb. Setelah itu, nggak beberapa lama kemudian, mereka langsung bawa aku ke suatu ruangan dimana aku bisa berkonsultasi langsung dengan dokternya tentang kulit aku. Ruangannya juga nyaman dan bersih (that's the most important thing!) Naah.. disitu aku konsul ke dokter-nya kalau kulit aku sebenernya ga terlalu berjerawat tapi sering ada bruntusan atau komedo kecil2.. Ternyata, setelah aku konsul, memang komed…

We are imported: Mask of Magnaminty!

About a few weeks ago, I tried this organic mask from Lush that I bought from @weareimported on Instagram. First, I'm going to make a review on this online shop :) Then, I'm going to give a review on the mask :)

I ordered my mask on Monday and then I got the package on Wednesday, so I can say that they're pretty quick! I found out about this online shop when I was doing some research on this mask (As you know, I always do a research first before buying a product) and I'm really satisfied with their service! They're always quick to respond to my questions, they don't complicate the shipping process and the package was nicely packed.

Now, let's do a review on this product!

I first heard about Mask of Magnamity from Simply Grace on Youtube https://m.youtube.com/watch?t=320s&v=Yh1onvr64Kw and because of that, I decided to buy it online! Haha

So far, I really like the scent and the mint sensation on my face. Honestly, I haven’t really seen significant change…

Living life to the fullest

I feel like a lot of people worry about the future too much. What if I get older and nothing's changed. What if it's too late for me to succeed. What if, what if, what if.. I'm such a big fan of Disney fairy tales, especially Cinderella.. In one of their original soundtracks, there's a song titled "A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes". There's one part of that song that really speaks to my heart, it goes like this "Have faith in your dreams and someday your rainbow will come smiling through. No matter how your heart is grieving, If you keep on believing, The dream that you wish will come true." Oh my! how I love that song! When you're reading this, you might say, Ah stop dreaming and just wake up already! The truth is, I'm wide awake right now,but yet I don't worry about the future because I know who holds my future. And I know with all my heart that my dreams will come true. I won't be sharing all of my dreams here, but I will le…
