Nimble + Humble

We determined early on that you have to be two things to do work around the world: nimble enough to go where the action is, and humble enough to listen once you get there. -- Howard Wolff, Senior VP, WATG


Surrender means being ready for anything; from the worst to the best.

Juicy Fruity

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23 NIV)

I always try to memorize these two verses. I'll come to: love, joy, peace, goodness, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control, and uhm, what was the ninth again, I had only 8? I repeated citing all I can remember, but this last one won't come up. After several times trying to remember, I gave up. I said to myself, I am gonna look it up once I've got a Bible with me.

What I forgot was: forbearance (IND: kesabaran).

22 Tetapi buah Roh ialah: kasih, sukacita, damai sejahtera, kesabaran, kemurahan, kebaikan, kesetiaan, 23 kelemahlembutan, penguasaan diri. Tidak ada hukum yang menentang hal-hal itu. (Galatia 5:22-23 TB)

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.8 Love never fails. (I Corinthians 13:4-8a, NIV) "A Walk to Remember" the movie also recites this verse. I just watched that movie last weekend. I got a glimpse of how powerful love could be. It changes a broken person into a stronger one. It allows miracle to happen.

Good to be back!

Hi everyone -- my loyal friend, my future subscriber, and my occasional-reader! It's good to have you here! I have been hiding away from writing in the blog for a long period of time -- even longer than I think I'd been. On my bike this morning, I felt the impulse to write again. I've got a new series in mind. I am calling it: EverestVerse EverestVerse will be a compilation of Bible verses that have spoken to me, inspire me, encourage me, and rebuke me. Why am I thinking of writing this series? I believe what I have learned on my journey with God are great lessons of life. Most of the time, I learn that by reading the Bible and find some verses that speak to me. And most of the time, after the problem passes, I forget the verse that encouraged me. This series is hoped to prevent me for forgetting good lessons. In a way, this series is about me. However, I believe, this series would also have a significance on your life. The misterious ways of the Lord, transcend all technology and time and He might just save you in time through reading EverestVerse. Like He always does. Our God is might to save. Cheers, Raissa
