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.
But I understand how it feels, though, because this world is crazy enough. There are tons of reasons that could drive men to become anxious. And on top of it the oppression from the devil himself (not so surprise because this world is under His rule, Eph. 2:2).
That worry which has turned into anxiety could kill someone, spiritually, mentally, and later on physically.
Without Jesus, probably I would be insane, or the worse (to the extent to harm myself). I will be a mess up without Him. I think I am capable to do that without Jesus.
Either I will perish or I will be a total evil but in disguise (while I am still living), there's no in-between. Because there's nothing good out of me apart from God (Mark 10:18). Thank God, I have Him. Thank God, He saved me. Thank God, I have His Spirit in me. I am grateful.
I wrote this while I also still facing struggles right now. But that's okay. Both believers and unbelievers face struggles (not to mention how believers must face persecution because of faith in Jesus). The difference is, those struggles have a Divine Purpose for us, His Bride.
It will be our badges, diamonds that will decorate our crowns, and bring glory to God, both on earth and heaven, as long as we stay faithful.

Don't be your own god, because you don't know everything and don't know the future let alone your future. Trust Him. Surrender your life
to Him, to Jesus.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, don't lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your path. He will. But only if you have first put your faith in Jesus.

While gazing at stars with that app in my little-zero-
light-pollution-backyard, I am still amazed by His finger-made.
"God, You are wonderful, You are awesome!".

Ah, thanks to that app now I can spot and memorize some constellations besides Orion on the night sky, like Gemini, Vela, and Canis Minor. They are beautiful.

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,

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

Yesterday's Bible study, Romans ch. 1:1-17 - (Part 1 and 2)

Study note at:

#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.
