Moments Can't be Captured →
Sometimes we want so badly to capture a remarkable moment in progress, that we introduce an unnecessary anxiousness to our experience of it. How amazing it would be if we could let the experience itself be enough, however long or short it may be, and let go of the need to try and make a possession of it. To let the sun go down when it pleases, to leave the waterfall where we found it, to let...

kimgayeong: 나는 헤어진 이들과는 다시 연애를 하지 않는다는 내 나름의 철칙이 있지만 동시에 헤어졌어도 한번 사랑한 사람은 평생 사랑할 수밖에 없다고 생각하고 또 그렇게 사랑하고 있다. 헤어진 사람과 다시 연애하는 건 싫은데 그 사람을 사랑한다는 사실을 이해해주는 사람이 없다. 이해받아야만 하는 것도 아니지만서도. Thank you for writing this gayeong. You write the words of my heart that I did not know how to express.
When my heart was grieved and my spirit embittered, I was senseless and ignorant; I was a brute beast before you. Yet I am always with you, you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel and afterward you will take me into glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my...

I can justify all the reasons why I was right. But it doesn’t take away the fact that I wish sometimes I didn’t have to be in such a hurry to be right.
During examweek, there’s nothing quite comforting than a bowl of rice, soy sauce, sesame oil, bonito flakes and sriracha sauce. Reminds me of college. haha.
One year ago
One year ago today, I found out I got into YSN. Now, 7 months into the program, I am constantly stretched in so many capacities that it’s hard to recognize the person I was several years ago, let alone a year ago. Nursing school is so challenging because we are on the frontline with humanity’s most vulnerable moment. I see so many broken people from so many backgrounds that first,...
The Conversion of Paul
But when he who had set me apart before I was born, and who called me by his grace. (Galatians 1:15) Ponder the conversion of Paul, the sovereignty of Christ, and what Paul’s sins have to do with your salvation. Paul said that God “set me apart before I was born,” and then on the Damascus road “called me by his grace” (Galatians 1:15). This means that between Paul’s birth and his call on the...
The Myth of "You Complete Me" →
Scripture thus tells us that it is our choice whether we want to get married and who we want to marry. We get to choose. This isn’t a denial of God’s providence, nor does it preclude God leading two people together. Rather, it’s the Bible’s way of saying that while marriage is really important, it’s also something God lets us decide whether we want to be participants in and who we want to be...
