Always Be Kinder Than Necessary.

You are more than empty beds and lonely nights, you are not just a heartbeat under bed sheets. You are complex and wonderful, beautiful and brilliant; please stop allowing the silence to dictate who you are. You are Christ’s, the same voice that awoke the world, calls you beloved, never ever forget that.

Explaining what it’s like to grow up as Asian-American and Christian all in one video… Tears start pouring once you hit 1:58. 

I can relate to this so much that it’s scary.

Frequently I hear Christians say, “I thought I was over that” or “I thought I wasn’t that person anymore” or “I thought I was healed and delivered from all that.” That kind of thinking leaves us vulnerable to believing we can dive deeper into temptation than we are actually able to withstand. Again, everybody has their limits, and when we are past ours, we find ourselves capable of exactly the same kind of behavior we thought we’d left behind.


There’s a paradox at work here. You see, we became weak by convincing ourselves that we were strong. But what if the answer lies in finding strength through accepting that deep down, we have weaknesses and limitations?

Love the hair color! I’ve always wanted to dye my hair a lilac color. I might end up looking like an anime character though… :3

It can be easy to romanticize a passion or a social cause or a marriage or raising kids with tons of posed pictures and flowery words — but all such things are gritty, raw, rough, and painstakingly sculpted from our fully invested hearts.  There is a lot of standing around and sweating through our shirts and seasons of self-doubt and all the frustrated parts that no one else can see.  We fall in love with highlights but these were formed in the valley.  Please don’t be seduced by soundbites and filtered photos and bowtie daydreams.  Real joy actually hurts, but that’s why it’s real.  It was carved from the best of us.

"Broken up" seems like merely a title. My actions have spoken otherwise.

When I first came to church, I thought all the Christians there were naive susceptible weak-minded overly protected religious people who didn’t know the harsh underside of life.

But the more I got to know them, the more I heard their hard stories of heartbreak and secret addictions and sleepless regrets.  I found they were naturally prideful and stubborn and had every reason to hate God — just like me.

I had really judged too quickly.  I was seeing many of them on the other side of this process called transformation.  No one there was the one-dimensional cartoon I had imagined them to be.  And no one — including me — were arriving to a put-together faith.  They were beat up and clinging to Christ.  Jesus loved them, and even liked them: these weary sin-torn ragged individuals who longed for grace.  And I discovered: I fit right in.  I ended up liking Jesus too.

This reminds me of when I decided to explore church for the first time in middle school!

I am in constant need of love from a God who is in constant desire in giving it.
