I want my mommy. :(
God loved us first. Like we long to be romanced and loved by another, God longs for us to turn to Him. How often do we push Him aside and feel like we don’t need Him? How often do we assume that we have had enough of Him for today? God romances us every single day, and we fail to romance back. What does it mean to be romanced? I think it means to be yearned after, to want to be taken cared...

“Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Phillip?” (John 14:9) “Let not your heart be troubled…” (John 14:1) “Am I then hurting Jesus by allowing my heart to be troubled? If I believe in Jesus and His attributes, am I living up to my belief? Am I allowing anything to disturb my heart, or am I allowing any questions to come in which are...
Blessed. To be loved by a King. It’s amazing how great He can work within my circumstances, my worries, my struggles, my sorrows, my pain. How crazy is it that He can change my perspective on things. How often do I just look over passages without really searching for His truth? There’s so much truth in Him, His identity is so real.
What if we all took off our masks and saw each other for who we really are?

It's quite interesting..
when you take a look back and see how far you’ve come. I think it’s almost weird having those moments wondering where you are in life and seeing how much you’ve changed. it’s like one of those moments where you’re so busy with life that when it comes to seeing where you are at right now, you think, man, I am quite different than i was last year, or the year before, or...
Is such a beautiful type of expression. I never really understood why people would listen to others just reading out some words to a large audience. But it’s SO much more than that. Spoken word is an art. It expresses the deeper parts of one’s soul, and when an artist steps up to the stage and starts to perform, there is an intimacy between the artist and the audience. The...
lawhwang asked: so... what is your favorite place to be?
Jesus, You are faithful, and will always be. So let my eyes be fixed on You. No more distractions. No more taking God’s plan and distorting it. Matthew 4:19-20- “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men” At once they left their nets and followed him.” At once. No hesitancy, no stubbornness. In order to capture the essence and...
“Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” Proverbs 4:23
We, as humans, tend to take the gifts that God gives us that is meant for GOOD, and distort it into something else, use it out of context and damage ourselves with it.
You love me as I am. Unashamed to call me Your own.
so not worth it.

God’s word is like food for the soul. We need it to grow. We long for when we are hungry. We can’t live without it. :)

“The true test of a person’s spiritual life and character is not what he does in the extraordinary moments of life, but what he does during the ordinary times when there is nothing tremendous or exciting happening. A person’s worth is revealed in his attitude toward the ordinary things of life when he is not under the spotlight.” -My Utmost For His Highest
btw, This weekend, I went home to visit the fam bam. It was really nice. I love going home, because it gives me that feeling of real comfort, and joy! That sounds cheesy, but it’s so true. I was talking to my mom while eating with my sister, and my mom says.. Mom: (In Korean) Your dad always talks about when you’re going to come home. Always, “Carol Carol Carol” … ...
When one sins, it’s easy to blame it on the sin. It’s easy to say, “Crap. I sinned again. I gotta redeem myself and read the bible more.” We start to measure where we stand as a type of marker, or timeline. Because I sinned, I’m far away. Because I sinned, I need to do more church work. When truthfully, we don’t have to do anything at all. Instead, check...
I hate being a doormat. a pushover. I hate being “too nice”. Too nice to a world that will always be mean. Too nice to people who will never realize how nicely they are being treated. Too nice to people who will never be able to appreciate because they are USED to it. It’s stupid and ugly. People are stupid and ugly. I sound bitter, but I should at least be able to WRITE it out,...
I need a break. More time with Him. Less time on the computer.
