Look to God, not Yourself

Few days ago, suddenly I was moved to post this topic on this blog, and a perfect title came to me. Look to God, not yourself. This title really represents what I want to share with you right now.

Some friends of mine, who are also following my Twitter, told me that I tweet a lot about God. Yeah, maybe it's true. I told them my reason, "Because God has the biggest role in my life. I can talk about my life, my problems, myself, but all of them are nothing if there's no God behind it. There are many things in my life that I really can't do alone. Even when I've done my best, I still can't. I need God. Only God can help me and make it work."

God is the key of everything in my life. Without God, I'm just an imperfect and weak man. Life is too challenging, I can't even handle it with my own strength and ability. I am not able. That's why I really need to look to God. The only reason I stand still now is because I look to God.

There are many things in life that can bring you down. Maybe it's someone who disappoints you, problems you can't handle, financial problems, or just relationship distraction you never expect. Whatever it is, it's like there are always those problems that make life so complicated, and it always makes you frustrated like you can't handle it anymore.

I once tried to let everything depend on myself. I did the best I can do, I gave my all, trying to keep being positive, but yes, it didn't work. The more I tried it, the more I realized I really couldn't. I was just a hopeless man who couldn't make it. Does it mean I'm weak? Yes, I am. Does it mean I'm a loser? Yes, I am.

But everything changes when I look to God. It's not about you. It's not about your self-efforts. It's about Him. It's about His love and what He has done for you. Don't look to yourself, you know you're imperfect. However, you can look to God and ask Him to help you. Will God help you? Of course! He'll surely help you if you really trust Him to work the best for you, because He loves you no matter who you are. He will provide everything you need, and it's free! Once you look to God, everything seems easy. Trust in Him. Rely on Him. You can just rest in Him and receive all the blessings He gives to you.

Life is too hard when you try to do everything by yourself without involving God in it.

You may be weak, but you can be strong with God. You may be a loser, but can be a winner with God. All you have to do is simple: stop depending on yourself and start relying on God.

Valentine's day is coming soon, and it's the day of love. I think it's a great idea to share something related to love: Love Languages . Have you heard about it before? It's not my idea.

Change the Perspective

One of people who inspire me the most is Nick Vujicic . I believe many of you know about this man. If you don't, well, he's a man with no arms and no legs. Although he has this disability, he still lives his life to the fullest. He swims. He surfs. He married. He does whatever he wants. Even he inspires many people around the world with great stories about his amazing life. Isn't he really a huge inspiration? I'm sure you know what I'm gonna write here. Many things we can learn from him, like being thankful, enjoying life, creating your happiness, or living the life you want no matter what the circumstance is. But I want to talk about his great life from a little bit different thing. He inspired me in one thing when I read his book. If there's one thing I can learn from him, it's that you can't always change your problems, but you can always change the way you see it . You can't always change your problems, but you can always chang

You are what you eat

You know they say, you are what you eat . I totally agree with this saying. The phrase finder says its meaning is "To be fit and healthy, you need to eat good food ". But I guess it's more powerful than that. I personally assume that the "food" here is more about things we put into ourselves, such as what we see, what we think, or what we feel . Just everything we put into ourselves . So, if this world was a restaurant, everything you can see, think, and feel in this world would be the foods. And the main role here is you! Because you would be the customer in the restaurant who choose the foods you want to eat. Whatever you eat, it will always affect your body (your life). That's why it's really important to choose "what you eat", because it's what really shapes you in the end. If you want your life to be better, you should manage what you eat. You can't just consume whatever you see, because not everything you see is
