A thread (Part 1)

The Law of the Lord Is Perfect (Ps. 19:1-5 ESV)

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.
The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.
In them he has set a tent for the sun,
which comes out like a bridegroom leaving his chamber,
and, like a strong man, runs its course with joy.
Its rising is from the end of the heavens,
and its circuit to the end of them,
and there is nothing hidden from its heat

This is an appreciation writing for my God.

So I downloaded this app, Star Walk 2. I have been wondering about one particular constellation I have seen since my childhood, and I finally knew its name thanks to that app. It's called Orion. I usually see it in the night sky,

The shaky video is bcs of my hand was shaking while I was holding the phone up to the sky
above my house. We used to sit in front of our terrace back in my childhood and pondering the night sky. At that time there almost zero light pollution when the night comes. I even witnessed a meteor back then. They gave me a beautiful childhood memory and made me fall in love
with astronomy. I am just so curious about celestial objects. But unfortunately, pursue this hobby needs a lot of money, so I just read and look at a lot of stuff through books and the internet, including a lot of videos about celestial objects or star gazing on youtube
This app is fascinating. It made me realize how big the Orion constellation is because I think I have never seen the sword from Orion's belt with a naked eye.

With naked eyes, I only happened to see some of the night sky events like the blood moon, super moon, meteor, mars
mercury, and a lot of stars with some constellations. They all astonished me.

I think I slightly understand why God put them there. Every time I see them, I remember there's God, and how glorious He is. I mean just look at them hanging in the sky, neatly arranged and organized.
Ps. 147:7 says, that He determines the number of the stars, he gives to all of them their names. Even Isa. 40:26 says He brings out their host by number. Isn't He great and magnificent?.

I think whenever I see the heavenly body, I see creation, I see a Creator, and He must be
glorious and wonderful more than His creations, which by the way is also magnificent. No man ever could imitate it. All the details, the colors, the creativity, and so on.

I don't even mention the ocean, marine life, and aquatic ecosystem. Don't make me even start, I love
everything about it!.

I remember when I wrote my thesis - the topics also covered the ocean, marine life, and aquatic ecosystem because it was about Exclusive Economic Zone - sometimes when I read or saw pictures and did research, I had blown away.

My heart spontaneously said,
"God, You are awesome!".
I stumbled in His beautiful creations.
(That's why I feel so sad whenever I see reports about sea pollution, like the ghost net, for example, that harmed and threatened the marine's lives).

He is, indeed, awesome. He created it and sustains it just by
His Words. From the heavenly high to the deepest deep, so fantastic and glorious. I did just be bewildered.

That's why I called atheists stupid. Not to be offensive, but just look at the sky above your head, or your fingerprint alone. How come, those complex things exist
without a Creator behind them?. How come they coincidentally existed?. Where did the "matter" come from?.
It is just, plainly, stupidity plus ignorance to say that this universe happened coincidentally and there is no God behind all of this.
I credited the moon picture to my sis Noa

Lastly, whenever I was sitting on the plane, whenever I saw the wide sea, with those clouds that look like waterfalls surrounded me, I always, always, sing this hymn " Tuhan Mulia lah" (beautiful worship song) () and start to worship God.
While speaking in Tongue, I praise Him, for who He is and what He has done.
I said,
"Lord, I am amazed by You. Lord, You are awesome!".

And I started to feel overwhelmed by His Presence. There were tears sometimes. I quietly cried in my seat and enjoy worshipped Him.
It happened often.

And in my prayer I said,
"Lord, more than like those ships that sailed at this open sea without being lost, more than those clouds that hang neatly beside me, I believe You hold my life and established my steps. You are my Shepherd, and I trust You. Help me
to walk side by side with You. Lead me Your way, show me Your way, help me to walk according to Your will without being astray. I entrust my life and death into Your Hand, because I know who You are. You are trustable. I believe in You.
Sometimes, I will face trials, and it definitely will happen, but through trials and joy, I decided to always trust You and to keep walking with You. Lead me Lord to walk in Your Way, I will follow."

While typing this, while look at the sky, I always being reminded by the
Holy Spirit, if He could hold those stars, He could take care of His children. And I believe it with all of my heart. As His beloved daughter, who has been saved from eternal death, from hell, from eternal damnation, and eternal separation from Him, I believe He could take care
of my life on this earth, and after I will depart from it. I am saved. Thank you, Lord Jesus. I don't need to be afraid. Not only me but also everyone who has put his/her faith in the finished work of Jesus on the Cross.

And by the way, His name is Jesus, just to make it clear.

Being worry is not a bad thing though. It means someone needs to be more careful to do something properly, but being over worry, then being overwhelmed by, and finally being enslaved by it is a whole different story.

So I got this leggo from exchanging gifts with my girls.
We have dealt that the gift must be something that useful. And then... she gave me a leggo. Hahahahaha🤣🤣🤣

I kept teasing her that this is the first time I have ever received a gift that I need to assemble first by myself. Is that even a gift?. And I joked to her, saying perhaps I will finish it in December or some years later.

She gave me this gift in a box full of tape. Like you want to send it as a parcel through courier.. and we exchanged it in a restaurant along with my other girls, so how am I supposed to open that?.

Then I used a fork instead. A-freaking-fork
kkkkkkkk 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Sharing a story that's not quite related to those old photos. One day my mom reminded me of the famous story after I was born.

I was born in rare conditions called 𝐸𝑛 𝐶𝑎𝑢𝑙 𝐵𝑎𝑏𝑦 or 𝑉𝑒𝑖𝑙𝑒𝑑 𝐵𝑖𝑟𝑡ℎ (a condition when the baby comes out still inside
an intact amniotic sac or caul. This might make it look like the newborn is completely gift-wrapped in a soft, jello-like bubble. And this rare thing of beauty happens in less than 1 in 80,000 births), and 𝑁𝑢𝑐ℎ𝑎𝑙 𝐶𝑜𝑟𝑑 (y' all can google it).
So I was born in a "bubble" and, because of the 𝑛𝑢𝑐ℎ𝑎𝑙 𝑐𝑜𝑟𝑑, I was born in a dark-purple color (perhaps because it choked me so I couldn't breathe at all). My mom and my big sis sometimes called me "ungu" or "purple" to tease me. I don't know what inspired them to do

#awesome #Lord #JesusChrist
I have waited for so long to be able to study this Letter deeper and systematic. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for this chance to be able to sit under Your teaching of this Masterpiece. I have waited for years and I am not going to waste this chance.
Let You Lord Jesus, Your Presence, quality time with the Holy Spirit, Your Words, Teachings, time for personal Bible Study, to have my quiet time, time of prayers, worship, praising You personally, the ministry we have agreed to start, an intercession for Your churches,

The two last chapters of this great book.
This is our birthright, that we are the conqueror of every challenge, by the Power of the Holy Spirit, with this mission, to fulfill God's calling. Every person in His Kingdom,
after he/she was born again, received callings from God,
according to the Scripture and their's specific calling. Just like Apostle Paul, had been called to be the apostle for the gentiles as his' specific calling. He obeyed it and faithful to it until his last breath.
