I’ve Heard You Calling in the Night

I’ve heard you calling in the night” . One of my favorite song lyric. The song’s title is Here I am, Lord. A well known Christian hymn written by Dan Schutte.  The reason why I like this song is because it’s about calling.

As a Christian, I believe that our life is not without God’s will. God has made each one of us in his own image. He made us all perfect having our own uniqueness, with a special gift, for good works which he prepared.

As we know, that there were a lot of pain, a lot of sorrow and tears around us. People are crying because of injustice. In one side, some people were kept going higher and higher, and on the other hand, too many people still crawling. They’re unconsciously suffer under oppressive.

This is fact, and what can we do about it?

As I mentioned before, God has given us special and different gifts. We should use whatever gift we have received from God to serve one  another in love. That’s God’s calling. And whatever we do, whether in word or deed (by speech or action), we must do it all for the glory of God. Our responses is just to trust and obey (Btw, Trust and Obey by  John H. Sammis (words) and Daniel B. Towner (music) is my other favorite song).

Ok, now, before I ended this piece of writing, I want you to read The Story Behind ‘Here I am, Lord’ I think most of you will agree with me that Dan Schutte was already served us and blessed us with his talent. Let’s give thanks to the Lord.

Recognize What’s Wrong

Christmas banner that I saw at the church I just attended today (5/02/17) 😦

This question just for Indonesians:

Can you recognize what’s wrong in this picture?

Please, don’t make the same mistake again if you love your country (and your God-of course).

*This post as a response to #Daily Prompt: recognize




Solitude is a word that people rarely know nowadays.

Why? Because we are too busy with our achievements. We have forgotten that contemplation is the important element in our life. We have forgotten how to contemplate and reflect.

We’re be blinded by the postmodern life style and its philosophy behind. Whether we realize or not, it makes eternal burden for our soul. That’s why so many of us become depressed.

As human being, we need to find a private moment in silence. It will help and refresh our soul from all of the hectic life.

So now, find you private moment. Be silent and contemplate all the things you need to reflect. May the Holy Spirit, the Helper that God has sent, works in you.

Get the result, keep growing, and good luck.

Found TheDailyPost and Participate

Thank God, I just found this blog today, in the end of January. The first month of 2017.  I’m so glad. Of course. Ceritanya saya menemukannya tidak sengaja. Ketika saya buka blog baru khusus menjadi wadah karya anak-anak murid, blog ini muncul begitu saja di bagian pembaca berhubung dalam blog baru itu belum ada satu situs pun yang diikuti. Penasaran, saya buka. Dan ternyata, lumayan. 😀 🙂 It could be amazing, you know. I think it’s important for me to participate in this challenges eventhough I’m not good enough in English. What do you think? 😀

Btw, today’s one-word prompt is ‘scent’ What do you think when you hear about ‘scent’? Ok, the first thought that comes to my mind when I hear about ‘scent’ was the earthy smell of rain (when the rain falls down on dry soil), the smell of a new book, plus a cup of hot coffee. Perfecto.
