Mom’s Birthday Today

December 20, 2008 Leave a comment

It’s my mom’s birthday! =D I’m glad God brought her into this world so that my brother and I can be here in this wonderful family!

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. –2 Corinthians 4:7, 16-18

Friendships

December 9, 2008 Leave a comment

My Kid’s EE class and I visited the Mission de la Casa Nursing home. It was a true blessing to see the Holy Spirit working in the kids, adults, and elderly that day. Some people heard the gospel for the first time and accepted Christ! =D

I also revisited San Jose 2 church. The sermon was about Luke 1:39-45, the friendship between Mary and Elizabeth. Pastor Hung said true spiritual friendships should have these components:

1. Both people fear God
2. Intentional Community: Mary hurried to Judea, a far journey, to meet Elizabeth after the angel spoke to her.
3. Filled with the Holy Spirit: when we come together, the spirit is clearly there.
4. Satisfies the Deepest Needs

I pray for these types of friendships, and I pray this Christmas season to bless others in this way.

Foodie: canh he dau hu, thit kho hot vit

Explosion, bursting, head
Slowly, quietly, seeping through
Any peace, solace, escape
I seek.

Help me Oh Lord.
I need you.
I am nothing. Without You.
Love me.
