Spirituality: Prodigal Son

Father I have sinned, help me find my way

Remember not my sins, just let me hear You say

Chorus
I forgive you, I love you. You are mine, take my hand
Go in peace, sin no more, beloved one.

Father I have turned, my back and walked away
Depended on my strength and lived life my own way  – Chorus

*

Father I have closed, my heart to those in need
Thought only of myself, a victim of my greed – Chorus
*

Father I Have Love if Love’s the word to use
I’ve player so many game they’ve left me so confused-Chorus

*

Father I’ve returned, I’m home with You to stay
Standing by your door, knowing that You’ll say-Chorus

Don’t worry when I argue with you, worry when I STOP because it means there is NOTHING left to FIGHT FOR.

Notes: Mercy in Disguise

It is 1: 16 A.M in Jakarta and I could not sleep. There are just a lot of things racing in my head.

For me, I feel that my life has been pretty hard lately. It really makes me upset and depressed. It also bring me down, discouraged and lost hope. I am just unhappy with whole situation.

While I was reflecting my current life situation, somehow I remember Laura Story’s song “Blessing“. She said “What if trials of this life, the rain, the storms, the hardest nights are your mercies in disguise”  As I reflected it, I realize that I am blessed and my life is not as hard as I think it is.

Despite the fact things did not go quite as planned and hoped, I know that I still have everything that I need and I want. God still provides my needs. There are many more people out there who have harder life than I am. And once again, I realize how blessed I  am.

I think it is quite normal to feel disappointed and upset when things go wrong. But I just always try to keep reminding myself that God loves me and will never leave me alone. I know that and I believe that.

In the first letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians,  apostle Paul said that “No temptation has overtaken you except such is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape that you may be able to bear it” (1 Corinthians 10:13)

And in today’s devotional reading from Our Daily Bread, Randy Kilgore wrote that all we need is faith and vision-the ability to see that God wants us to be His instruments and that He will supply what we need.

Over and over again, we are always reminded that God loves us, God will never leave us alone and God will never test us beyond what we are able to because God is faithful.

I just believe that everything happens for a reason. It is God’s mercies in disguise, which sometimes I don’t understand. Hence I must stop complaining and try my best to get everything in a right place. Eventually, all things will fall into the right place.

Have a great weekend readers!

Indonesia: RI Independence Day Doodle

2013 Indonesia Independence Day Google Doodle

2013 Indonesia Independence Day Google Doodle

Google participated in celebrating the 68th Indonesia Independence Day by creating Indonesia Independence Day doodle with Garuda Pancasila, the national emblem of Indonesia, to replace the letter O in red and white color.

Despite the fact there were many appreciation for this doodle, there were many criticism also about it especially the national emblem because it was too skinny, didn’t look like Indonesia national emblem, this and that. But for me, it is good enough.

Apparently since 2009 Google has always been publishing Indonesia Independence doodle on the 17 August  to participate  in celebrating Indonesia Independence day. And I just realized that : ).

As an Indonesian citizen, I am proud to see my google page view today. Happy 68th Independence Day Indonesia! I am proud Indonesia! Saya bangga menjadi warga Indonesia…

Notes: One in A Million

You're one in a million [2013: E O]

You’re one in a million [2013: E O]

When your boyfriend or girlfriend says to you that You’re one in a million. Don’t be happy about it. Sheldon Cooper said “If someone says you’re “one in a million” They’re telling you that there are 7,038 people just like you. How is this a compliment?” Ha ha ha! Smartass!

My man used to tell me this and I was always happy about it but now I realized that it was not a compliment. Lol

Notes: Appreciation

I would like to share an interesting message that I received this morning.

When I was a kid, I didn’t have a laptop, Blackberry, iPhone or PS3. I played outside with my friends, bruised my knees and made up adventurous fantasies or played hide and seek. I ate what my mom cooked and KFC was a treat. I would think twice before I said ‘NO’ to my parents. Life wasn’t hard, it was great and I survived. Repost this if you appreciated the way you’re raised. These days, kids are spoiled and I think we were happier kids. These days kids lost something.

Fashion: Turquoise Lumberjack

Turquoise Lumberjack [2013: E R]

I have never really a big fan of checked shirt but these days I am becoming one. Well, let me put this way. I am not really a big fan of checked shirt but I am a big fan of boyfriend style shirt. It is just very comfortable and easy to wear. For boyfriend shirt, I prefer to combine it with short jeans and high heels or feminine flat shoes.

The idea of boyfriend fashion is all about wearing clothes that look a size too big for the wearer. But whenever I am wearing a boyfriend shirt, I always roll up the sleeves hence it gives the feminine look.

Anyway, what do you think about my new shaved head? Have a great day readers!

Notes: Death and Love

I would say that it is very moronic when people consider death as a way out to overcome their love life problem.

Some mindless people say that for the sake of love, they are willing to die by committing suicide. Some other also say that they are willing to end somebody’s life by killing them for the sake of love. Is this life just about loving and being loved by our lover? And when they broke up or separated, would the world just collapse and there would be no other life?

To consider that death is a way out to overcome a love life problem is actually very dumb. What’s so cool about that? That is not love! And I just really do not understand.

Lately, Indonesian media keeps reporting news on love triangle murder. Husband mutilated his wife to be together with his mistress. Husband kills his mistress because of her jealousy or being demanding. Wife stabbed her husband to death for cheating on her. That is just so foolish!

It is alright to be angry and disappointed but it is not alright to kill themselves or take other person’s life. No one has the right to take another person’s life because life belongs to God.

The bible even reminded us that God says  “See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.” Deuteronomy 32:39
