God’s Sovereignty

Lately, I’ve been reading a book called “The Reason for God” by Timothy Keller, a pastor at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York. While most of the Christian books that I read usually revolves around faith, vision, relationship, and discipleship, this is the first time I’m reading about Apologetics, the art of defending the Bible.

The Power of Words

Words. A sound or combination of sounds that has a meaning behind it. Whether we realize it or not, words have so much power that can either bring us down or build us up. When words are being used in a proper way at the right time, they can encourage, give people hopes and confidence. Sometimes, they even can actually be life changing for some people.

The Greatest Gift

It’s December! I can’t believe it’s December again! 2017 went by so fast. I remembered some of my friends arrived in Seattle as freshmen, recently they graduated and ready to go back home to their home country for good. If we are not careful, time will pass us by. It is up to us to use the time that we have to do good and meaningful work.

Addressing Depression

Not too long ago, I was watching a TV series called “New Amsterdam” starring Ryan Eggold who played the character of “Dr. Max Goodwin”. The show was about Dr. Goodwin’s effort to provide the best care to the patients by breaking the bureaucracy of the old hospital. In one of the episodes, a Chinese student in a university attempted to commit suicide despite being a straight A’s student. She described the feeling of emptiness, hard to wake up in the morning (due to the thoughts that she would fail everything on that day), and worthless; All of which are some of the symptoms of Depression.
