Pillows and Promises: Overcoming the Nightmares of Life

August 27, 2021

At the end of the day, it is our pillows and blankets that greet us, offering us comfort and rest.

The past year has been a difficult one. The times are still challenging, with the virus mutating and forming new variants, and the numbers of infected on the news are becoming names of people we know—names of those we care about. Even more so, despite the availability of the vaccines, the end of the pandemic remains nowhere in sight. And for most of us, these worries are just the tip of the iceberg; we also have other troubles to think about in the family, work, school, and many other areas of life.

Trusting God when Things Go Wrong

March 3, 2022

The year may be turning out differently than you expected. Perhaps you recently experienced the death of a loved one. Or you got rejected by the school of your top choice (or by your crush). Or maybe, you are still struggling with problems that you hoped would be gone by now. 

Even though our circumstances are different, we ask God the same question: Why?

Holy Spirit: The God Behind the Scenes

March 11, 2022

The Holy Spirit is the member of the Trinity that most people overlook. The truth that there is one God in three Persons is difficult to completely understand. There are things in life we won’t know or completely understand, but by faith, we trust that what God doesn’t reveal is actually for our own good.  But God does give us all that we need to know. Can you guess how? It’s through the Holy Spirit.

“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and remind you of all that I said to you (John 14:26).”

It is the Holy Spirit who is working behind the scenes. If we were to compare the Triune God to a movie production, God the Father would be the director, Jesus would be the actor, and the Holy Spirit would be the crew. Actors and directors get famous, but the crew working behind the cameras won’t get their names flashed on the movie’s trailer. The crew as the unpopular manpower is just as important as the celebrities for the film to be successful. A lot of work needs to be done from costume to set design to editing. It’s the same way God works through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Go Home

September 13, 2021

Why did God allow for this pandemic to happen? 

The Bible says, God is sovereign. Nothing happens without His permission. Even when Satan wanted to afflict Job, he was limited by the boundaries God has set and he cannot go any further.

The Lord said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he has is in your power, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.” Then Satan went out from the presence of the Lord. – Job 1:12 NIV

God is also all-knowing. He knows the things that are yet to happen, and how events of today and the past will affect the future.
