Today Verse

You have failed —
so run to Jesus,
not away from Him.

Rev. Michael Densmoor
(Sermon Notes, Luke 18:9-14

Luke 18:9-14 (ESV)
He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt: 
10 “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 
11 The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. 
12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’ 
13 But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ 
14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

Poem

Sembuyi


Ku ingin berlari dan berlari
Tapi kini, tak bisa lagi

Angin pagi yang bertiup seolah menari
Kurasakan hanya dirumahku sendiri

Ibu pertiwi sedang di genit-in Covi
Saya pun diam dan bersembunyi

Dia begitu berani
Banyak jiwa yang dikianati, sampai mati

Sedih, dan nyerih hati ini

Kapan semua ini akan berakhir sunyi
Hanya Tuhan yang tau pasti

Ku ingin berterima-kasih
Masih ada hati yang terus berdiri, tanpa letih
Memerangin si covi ini, sampai dia mati dan sepi

Dari dalam hati ini
Untukmu, penjuang sejati

Special Day

4th Birthday

He is four today. 12.03
His mom was preparing and coordinating with my sister at home town about possible his favourite birthday cake, Chase from Paw Patrol.

It’s his first birthday cake!

Many people around us still do not believe it, but it is true.
We did not give him a birthday on 1st, 2nd or 3rd birthday. Simply we thought, he does not understand it yet. But we know he wants one, when few weeks or months back, He wants to blow the candle.

We were glad to give him one.

He spend his entire birthday in my home town, a place I was raised. Running around the back yard and cycling around too.

He is learning to bike with his cousin. named Nadiya.
This girl is in advance level, while Noah still playing a catch up in term of agility and expert in manoeuvring the bike. Nadiya is like a motocross rider, trying to jump with her bike.

They had a good time together, good and bad.

Side Notes

Fruitful

The questions came out when I am about to write this post.
What does it mean to be a christian? What should we do?

Often time, many hours of our leisure time well-spent on something sometime did not enlighten us or shield us from this worldly world. too many things to please our weak flesh and distort our beautiful soul.

Which is suppose to be the opposite. living the life that bring glory to God from the fruits that we sow or the seed that we planted. being somebody that represent God in a meaningful & fruitful life.

we ought to be a prepared christian. being prepared means, we study bible, learn from other, put to work what we have learned from Bible and people around us, humble in receiving the advices and perspective, plus a consistency in doing it.

keep praying for things we did wrong and repent, start to do the right things.

— to be continued…
