A little thing in my head…

As a human being, worrying is part of my life. Do not know what will be happened tomorrow get me really fear. I’m categorized to man who always plans everything perfectly before doing something. That’s why do not know what is going to come really makes me powerless. I don’t know what will I do tomorrow, what kind of job will I get, will I be able to get job that I wanted, will I get my dream comes true, and there are still many things that I get in my head, the things that I have no idea at all.

You know, it is true that as human being, we have many things we worry. We worry much about the future. I think it’s ok. Everyone has their own struggle about their life and their future. But something that suddenly slips into my head is what I need, the Lord will provide them. Wherever it is according with our will or not, it’s a different case, but I’m totally believe Lord will give the best for us. There’s nothing that He won’t give to us. Even His life, it was granted for us. Jesus gave everything He had. He left His throne in heaven for us. Whatever He did, He did it for us. Until the end of His life, He gave His life for us, for saving us from eternal death. I think it’s more than everything we ever asked and imagine.

That consciousness makes me realized that there is nothing in this world worthy enough to be worried. The Lord will provide us, everything we need, it has be given to us. You just need to believe and trust Him. Job, livelihood, money, husband/ wife, kids, all of them are small matters for God. Since He has given His life, the most precious one for us, there is nothing that He will not give to us, but we have to remember as long as it’s for our own sake.

Finishing my writing, I want to give thanks to Jesus for His love. And one another thing, try not to worry too much. He’s here with us and He will help us and provide us. Have a meaningful Good Friday…

Behind the door

A sick man turned to his doctor, as he was preparing the examination room and said, “Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side.”

Very quietly, the doctor said, “I don’t know.”

“You don’t know? You, a Christian man, don’t know what is on the other side?”

The doctor was holding the handle of the door; on the other side of which came a sound of scratching and whining, and as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room and leaped him with an eager show of gladness.

Turning to the patient, the doctor said, “Did you notice my dog? He’s never been in this room before. He didn’t know what was inside. He knew nothing except that his master was here, and when the door opened, he sprang in without fear. I know little of what is on the other side of death, but I do know one thing… I know my Master is there and that is enough…

Second chance???

This morning, I heard the news about the death sentence for the drugs convicts in Indonesia. It was told that the convicts asked for re-observation about their conviction. The reason was they got a life change since they had their punishment. There was a convict that became more religious and help to healed the others, and the other one became a painter and taught the others. Unfortunately, it couldn’t cancel their death sentence. I won’t comment about their death sentence, but I think if they bring a good effect to the others, it will be a great lose.

I try to watch from another view. I see when they wee trying to construct their life again, there was no chance. And for us, beware my friends, second chance is not always provided. It is better to maximize our potential, what is already be with us, and what can we do right now in order to not regretting in the future days.

Death, is it the ultimate fear?

Last night, I had a little chat with my friend. We talked about what is the ultimate fear, if people aren’t afraid with death anymore, so what is the ultimate one that surpasses it? Well, I think nowadays people aren’t fear with death anymore. If I can say, maybe they are more afraid facing live rather than death. Let’s check the simple things that we always do in our daily live. When we drive our vehicle, there is usually someone that drives with high speed, while another one keep driving even the traffic lamp turns red. All of us know it’s dangerous but it doesn’t stop us. Maybe they, the people who did it, more afraid if they were late on urgent thing, maybe it was their business, or maybe losing their reputation as the on- time businessman was scarier than lost their life. Ok, maybe you’ve never done it, but what about answering the phone call while you’re driving? It can cause an accident and we can lose our life, isn’t it? It’s mean there are other things that we’re more afraid, maybe your wife will be angry with you if you don’t answer her call =p
In the other case, there are many people who dare to take a risk facing death with some purpose. Look at them who do the extreme sports. For me, I myself don’t like them, so I can’t comment it. Maybe they have similarity with the people who work as stuntmen. I don’t know, maybe because it is their hobby so they do the dangerous thing or maybe they really need money. If it’s the second one, once again, it’s money that drives their life. Maybe they are more afraid life without money rather than take a risk losing their life.
It’s different with the people who went to the war. They who fought for get their freedom, their rights as human being. The heroes who went to the battlefield must be afraid to die, but it was scarier for them when the human rights were violated. That’s why they dared to fight for what was they fought, their hope for a better future.
Another case that can be more serious is losing our life with purpose. Well, nowadays we have many suicide cases that caused by ridiculous things and it should be no need to do. For example: a boy who got suicide because his parents couldn’t buy him a new handphone. Maybe his friends bullied him, and he got afraid with the bullying so he decided to end his pain with a suicide. I hope this case can get our attention. We have to be careful with our deeds, of course we don’t want our deeds bring pains to other. Lately cyber bullying gets hot. –Thanks to my friend for rebuking me.- Look at the people who promise to do this and that if certain condition was happened in facebook. And many people comment him, most of them mock him. What is the different with you mock your friends. It’s known as bullying, isn’t it? Let’s think, we don’t know whether it’s him or his friends who did it. Maybe his friends thought it was funny. But if it’s you who were the victim, is it funny? Think bout it, you will face hell. Many people will mock you for the thing you don’t do. If you can’t stand it, maybe you will think suicide is the shortpass to get free. Please beware with our deeds. Don’t let us bring disaster to anyone, even we have no purpose when do it.
There are many other things that can cause people lost heart for continue their life, such as get in debts that can’t be paid, have no money for living, or lost something important, like job or family member that made they lost their passion in live. The point is when a man loses his hope, he will lose his brave for facing life. Maybe they will think that death is more beautiful than live. As my respond for the statement that death is the men’s ultimate fear, I don’t think so. Live without hope is more frightening rather than die. If you lose your hope today and you think that tomorrow is scary, please remember God will not leave us. He who always be with us since we as born, keep walking with us in the sunny days and the darkest night, will He not do such things tomorrow?
I remember a wall ornament in my house. It’s written ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you’, a word from Heb 13:5.
Anyway, as my last words, suddenly I get this on my head, Proverbs 23:18, “There is a surely hope for you and your hope will not cut off.”

Paradox (eng)

Is an opening created for an ending?

Or an ending is created first, so it needs an opening?

Is an encounter have to end with a separation?

Or a separation is decided when an encounter coming up?

Does a birth begin to end with a death?

What for a man born an live if at the end he will die?

It’s so funny isn’t it, this world is full of paradox…

If a life will end with a death,

Does it mean man lives for death?

No, it is not…

In the middle of an opening and an ending there is a story…

After an encounter and before a separation, there is a memorials…

And even we separated, the friendship we have will be eternal…

And between birth and death there is life…

Life certainty ends with death, but life is not death…

Everything happend for a purpose…

That’s why you have to find the meaning and purpose of your life, when you still alive…

Before death come and it will be too late…

Find and enjoy your life…
