"fear-based repentance makes us hate ourselves.
joy-based repentance makes us hate sin."

오렌만에 너무나도 현실적인 악몽을꿨다. 아무리 공부하는게 힘들었어도…. 네가 이렇게 힘들었나?
so funny…..or sad (?) how you get so drawn to the Word when it seems like you’ve hit rock bottom, when there’s no where else to turn, when there’s nothing else in your strength to do but turn to Him. so sad but so beautiful that God catches me in my weakest and most unstable moments. God is wrecking me right now, reminding me that i truly truly cannot do anything without his strength, without HIM at all. His mercies are new every day. even as i’m being wrecked right now, He is also rebuilding me, remolding me as His child.

my prayer these days
is for Christ to restore these bones to a position of grace. restore this mind, this heart, these lungs…. restore everything from head to toe for your glory. every beat of this heart is for you. every breath of these lungs are for you. every pulse through my veins are for you.
God’s good and perfect will panning out through this pastor. Although i saw this like a year ago, still so moving to watch the trailer. can’t wait for the full documentary to come out!!
Dear Abba Father,
I pray for myself and all my brothers and sisters during this finals time, that despite all these worldly anxieties building up in this time (i.e. exams, papers, grades), I pray that our eyes would be solely fixed to our heavenly home as we continue this race. That we wouldn’t be running so aimlessly and working so hard to get those ‘A’s because of the worldly standards set before us, but for Your glory, to build up your kingdom, and as an act of worship all lifted up to you. Whether I get an A or a B on that paper, I don’t wanna get so caught up in what really is so fleeting in this blip of a life, and what really doesn’t matter. What could matter more than my Abba Father in Heaven, my one and only Creator, Comforter, Saviour, and Counselor? This may all sound like ramblings, but God you know every word on my heart and mind. Just wanted to lift this prayer for myself and all my brothers and sisters who are currently in college, for all the anxieties to be lifted as we fix our eyes on what truly matters. Not gonna lie, I’m soooo excited to go back home for winter break after being on campus all semester, but I wanna be running this race, even during finals, for my heavenly home and my heavenly Abba Father. Even in all this studying and cramming, that my praises for You would not cease.
