The Most Precious Name Is Jesus!


New International Version (NIV)

5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

6 Who, being in very nature God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
7 rather, he made himself nothing
    by taking the very nature of a servant,
    being made in human likeness.
8 And being found in appearance as a man,
    he humbled himself
    by becoming obedient to death—
        even death on a cross!
9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.

"All praise and glory belong to Him, for He is the One who makes everything possible"

Menghilang Saja

Lelah aku memikirkanmu
Lelah aku merindukanmu
Lelah aku menginginkanmu
Lelah aku dengan hadirmu

Pergi saja dari hatiku
Pergi saja dari otakku
Pergi saja ke hutan, ke gunung, kemana pun kau mau
Menghilang saja dari hidupku
Abracadabra!

Mohon Maaf Pak Presiden …
Posted by Linda Djalil on November 18, 2013

Mohon maaf pak Presiden. Saya tidak punya selera lagi melihat TV bila Anda tampil, apalagi sembari berbicara ini-itu…. , yang menurut saya sungguh tidak bermutu.

Saya tidak sabar menunggu Anda selesai menduduki jabatan itu… dan saya mendambakan acara 17 an di Istana dipenuhi lagu-lagu perjuangan karya Ismail Marzuki dll yang layak dan sejak dulu biasa dinyanyikan dari belasan puluhan tahun lalu oleh aubade anak-anak … , bukan lagu karanganmu.

Saya juga ingin melihat seorang Ibu negara atau siapapun yang anteng-anteng mengikuti upacara 17 Agustus di tangga Istana dengan khidmad, sesuai dengan aturan protokoler yang bermartabat, bukan pecicilan foto sana-sini bagai seorang fotografer kawakan yang mendapat tempat istimewa pada acara istimewa.

Saya juga ingin sekali merasakan kerukunan beragama di negeri ini serta ketegasan pemimpin negara yang menegur keras para oknum yang berkelahi akibat penghinaan kepercayaan sana-sini.

Saya mendambakan seorang presiden yang berwibawa dan mampu mengkoordinir para pembantunya menangani urusan ekonomi negeri, sehingga harga beras tidak makin melangit, daging sapi menyusup sampai setinggi pohon kelapa karena korupsian yang tak terdeteksi sebelumnya.., urusan minyak bumi negeri ini yang tidak dicatut para makhluk yg berhati jelaga dan mata duitan…, kemiskinan yang makin melebar dan merata tak ada lagi…, urusan kejahatan narkoba yang tak ada ampun dan bukan malah dibela, ….. saya betul-betul bermimpi punya seorang presiden yang bijak, matang, tidak hobi curhat dan sangat paham mana skala prioritas yang harus dijalankannya… dan sebagainya dan sebagainya dan sebagainya yang serba baik bagi negeri ini…..

A Father To Follow

Last month on September 13, 2013, my family and I reminisce the day when my dad passed away 10 years ago on September 13, 2003. It’s been long time since he left us but he is still live in our heart, life and dream…. and will be forever remembered as the best daddy in the world that we ever had in our life. We are proud to have him. I am proud to be his daughter and I promise, I will never disappoint you, dad!

While recall my dad that day, ODB gave such a blessing reading about A Father To Follow, thank you ODB! I believe it is not a coincidence, it can happen because God’s plan. On ODB, I read about how father can be a good example for his children and I am grateful for that, I am grateful to have such a good father. I may live without my biological father these days but my heavenly Father is always with me. Thank you Lord Jesus.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


"We honor God’s name when we call Him our Father and live like His Son."
[Jehoshaphat] sought the God of his father, and walked in His commandments. —2 Chronicles 17:4

When I think of my father, I think of this saying: “He didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and he let me watch him do it.” During my youth, I watched my dad walk with God. He participated in Sunday morning church services, taught an adult Bible-study class, helped with counting the offering, and served as a deacon. Outside of church, he faithfully defended the gospel and read his Bible. I saw him express his love for the Lord through outward actions.

Asa, king of Judah, modeled devotion to God for a season in his life (2 Chron. 14:2). He removed the idols from his kingdom, restored the altar of the Lord, and led the people into a covenant with God (15:8-12). Asa’s son Jehoshaphat carried on this legacy by seeking “the God of his father and walk[ing] in His commandments” (17:4). Jehoshaphat purged the land of idol worship (v.6) and sent out priests and Levites to teach God’s law in all of the cities of Judah (vv.7-9).

Jehoshaphat’s reign resembled that of his father; he faithfully honored Asa’s godly example. Yet even more important, Jehoshaphat’s “heart took delight in the ways of the Lord” (v.6). Today, if you’re looking for a father to follow, remember your heavenly Father and take delight in His ways. — Jennifer Benson Schuldt

Beasiswa Mengantarkanku Ke Eropa

Entah impian ini datang dari mana tapi sejak kecil saya sudah bercita – cita ingin menimba ilmu di luar negeri dan negara yang paling saya impikan saat itu adalah Jepang. Mungkin karena sering mendengar kisah kemajuan Negeri Matahari Terbit tersebut di sekolah dan kebanyakan nonton cerita Oshin. Seiring berjalannya waktu ternyata mimpi ini tidak pudar bahkan terus bergelora namun negara tujuan saya berubah, bukan lagi Jepang tapi Inggris, karena ingin menyaksikan secara langsung pertandingan Premier League di Old Trafford, kandang Manchester United, klub sepak bola favorit saya, alasan yang aneh memang tapi banyak memotivasi saya untuk mengejar gelar master S2. Di akhir tahun perkuliahaan sarjana S1 di Bandung saya pun mulai hunting berbagai beasiswa master S2 ke Inggris tapi belum pernah sekalipun memberanikan diri untuk melamar beasiswa – beasiswa tersebut karena terhalang beberapa persyaratan misalnya pengalaman kerja, essay, surat referensi dan lain – lain. Setelah menamatkan S1 saya pun bekerja di suatu perusahaan swasta, hingga akhirnya impian ini berubah, negara tujuan bukan lagi Inggris tapi Jerman. Bekerja dengan produk – produk Jerman, berinteraksi dengan orang – orang Jerman, belajar teknologi Jerman dan lain – lain, semuanya tentang Jerman, sehingga membuat saya “Germany Minded”, inilah yang memotivasi saya mengejar beasiswa ke Jerman. Banyak dukungan tapi juga cemooh yang saya terima karena keinginan bersekolah ke luar negeri melalui beasiswa. Saya dianggap terlalu “bermimpi”, sombong, arogan dan lain – lain namun justru hal ini makin memacu semangat saya untuk membuktikan impian tersebut. Hingga di awal tahun 2012 tepatnya akhir Januari, saya membaca informasi yang disebarkan di Milis Beasiswa, ada beasiswa, bukan untuk master memang tapi beasiswa musim panas (Summer Scholarship) selama dua minggu yaitu International Multicopter Girls Camp 2012 yang diadakan oleh The International Graduate School on Mobile Communications dari Technische Universität Ilmenau di Jerman khusus untuk perempuan di bidang teknologi, tujuan dari program ini adalah simulasi dan pemprograman Multicopter yang mampu menciptakan jaringan bantuan bencana (disaster relief network), saya pun memberanikan diri untuk mendaftar. Tanggal 21 Maret 2012 mungkin salah satu hari paling bersejarah dalam hidup saya, saya dinyatakan lolos, menjadi penerima beasiswa di salah satu kampus teknik terbaik di Jerman itu. Dari ratusan peserta hanya 8 (delapan) orang perempuan yang terpilih yaitu dari Indonesia, Amerika, Irak, Pakistan, Spanyol dan 3 (tiga) orang dari Kroasia. Sebagai satu – satunya peserta dari Indonesia, hal ini sangat membahagiakan saya karena berkesempatan mewakili Indonesia dari provinsi Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT) khususnya Kabupaten Sumba Barat Daya. Saat mengikuti kegiatan ini yang berlangsung dari tanggal 2 – 13 Juli 2012, saya sudah bekerja sebagai Pegawai Negeri Sipil (PNS) di Kabupaten Sumba Barat Daya. Saya bersyukur keikutsertaan saya pada kegiatan ini didukung oleh pimpinan saya bahkan Bupati Sumba Barat Daya. Salah satu impian saya sudah terwujud, mendapat beasiswa di Eropa, saya pun berkesempatan mengunjungi Berlin, München (termasuk salah satu stadion terbaik, Allianz Arena milik klub Bayern München), Ilmenau dan Erfurt di Jerman, Warsawa di Polandia saat berlangsungnya gelaran piala Eropa 2012 (semifinal Jerman vs Italia), Salzburg dan Wina di Austria serta Praha di Republik Ceko.

Semoga artikel ini dapat memotivasi orang – orang yang ingin meraih beasiswa baik di dalam negeri maupun ke luar negeri terutama bagi putera - puteri NTT dan Sumba khususnya, sumber daya kita tidak kalah dengan putera - puteri lainnya di luar NTT baik di Indonesia bahkan di luar negeri sekalipun asal kita mau berusaha dan berdoa. Semoga artikel ini juga membuka mata para pemegang kekuasaan terutama di lingkup birokrasi agar mau “berinvestasi” dalam bidang pendidikan bagi putera – puteri daerahnya, tidak menyulitkan proses melanjutkan pendidikan tinggi, dan lain -lain. Contohlah beberapa negara Asia lainnya seperti China, India, Malaysia, Vietnam yang terus mengijinkan/mengirimkan orang – orangnya baik pegawai pemerintahan maupun swasta untuk menimba ilmu di luar negeri baik dengan biaya pemerintah maupun sumber lainnya karena sekembalinya mereka ke negeri sendiri akan banyak orang – orang cerdas yang dapat membangun negerinya atau tirulah Makassar yang pemerintah daerahnya berkomitmen mengembangkan Sumber Daya Manusia (SDM)nya dengan mengirimkan putera – puterinya untuk melanjutkan pendidikan tinggi, bayangkan sekembalinya mereka ke daerah asal, diharapkan akan banyak SDM – SDM berkualitas yang dapat membangun daerahnya. “Investasi” sekarang untuk pembangunan masa depan.

Masih ada gelar master S2 yang ingin saya capai, tertarik?

Merindukanmu

Keheningan ini mengusikku
Menanti kehadiranmu

Dengan sebait asa
Merindukanmu di setiap jengkal napasku
Karena kuyakin kita pasti bertemu

Pedestrian

Last July I went to Jakarta, during that time, my brother in law was host two friends from Germany which he knew from Couchsurfing. Since I’ve been there for several days, I went come along with them to help them find a transport from Jakarta to Yogyakarta, so we walked around Gambir, Deutsche Bank and somehow ended up in Grand Indonesia. While we walked around and trapped in some bumpy path which full of cars, one of them, Anna was asking me "Why all this way belong to cars? Where is for pedestrian? How about people like us?" I only smirked. Yes, that’s the big problem in Jakarta and some other big cities in Indonesia, all street/path belong to cars, not for people that’s why we always trap in traffic jam and pollution. This situation is totally different in some developed countries, they always make pedestrian as a main priority, while in Indonesia, no priority for pedestrian, however slowly but sure it's started to change now, some area in Jakarta has changed to become open public space which is good for their citizen and I hope it will develop faster so we can walk freely and safety.

Maaf...

Maaf...
           Kerahkan energiku 'tuk ucap kata itu
Maaf...
           Keluhnya lidah bisukan aku
Maaf...
           Hingga meremukkan hatimu
Maaf...
           Membuatmu tersiksa dalam rasa curiga
Maaf...
           Karena di saat memikirkanmu, dia juga menari di pikiranku
Maaf...Maaf...Maaf...
           Maafkanlah aku

BRAVE

Oh yeahhhh I really love this video, you should have it! :)

Ich will einfach nur schreien und die Kontrolle verlieren. #verrückt (crazy, mad, insane, nuts, demented, lunatic)

SEI TAPFER!


You can be amazing
You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
You can be the outcast
Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love
Or you can start speaking up
Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do
When they settle ‘neath your skin
Kept on the inside and no sunlight
Sometimes a shadow wins
But I wonder what would happen if you

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

Everybody’s been there,
Everybody’s been stared down by the enemy
Fallen for the fear
And done some disappearing,
Bow down to the mighty
Don’t run, stop holding your tongue
Maybe there’s a way out of the cage where you live
Maybe one of these days you can let the light in
Show me how big your brave is

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

And since your history of silence
Won’t do you any good,
Did you think it would?
Let your words be anything but empty
Why don’t you tell them the truth?

Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

With what you want to say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I wanna see you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
See you be brave

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you

I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you

Beri Daku SUMBA


di Uzbekistan, ada padang terbuka dan berdebu
aneh, aku jadi ingat pada Umbu

Rinduku pada Sumba adalah rindu padang-padang terbuka
Di mana matahari membusur api di atas sana
Rinduku pada Sumba adalah rindu peternak perjaka
Bilamana peluh dan tenaga tanpa dihitung harga

Tanah rumput, topi rumput dan jerami bekas rumput
Kleneng genta, ringkik kuda dan teriakan gembala
Berdirilah di pesisir, matahari ‘kan terbit dari laut
Dan angin zat asam panas dikipas dari sana

Beri daku sepotong daging bakar, lenguh kerbau dan sapi malam hari
Beri daku sepucuk gitar, bossa nova dan tiga ekor kuda
Beri daku cuaca tropika, kering tanpa hujan ratusan hari
Beri daku ranah tanpa pagar, luas tak terkata, namanya Sumba

Rinduku pada Sumba adalah rindu seribu ekor kuda
Yang turun menggemuruh di kaki bukit-bukit yang jauh
Sementara langit bagai kain tenunan tangan, gelap coklat tua
Dan bola api, merah padam, membenam di ufuk teduh

Rinduku pada Sumba adalah rindu padang-padang terbuka
Di mana matahari bagai bola api, cuaca kering dan ternak melenguh
Rinduku pada Sumba adalah rindu seribu ekor kuda
Yang turun menggemuruh di kaki bukit-bukit yang jauh.

Why Should Christians Wait For Marriage To Have Sex?


This is good article, I copied it from YMI Blogging
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why Should Christians Wait For Marriage To Have Sex?

Sex is not only a hot topic in our culture, it’s also on the minds of most couples in love. It’s a natural, God-given desire — a gift intended to give us pleasure and express our intimacy.

But did God have a plan in mind for sex? What are the freedoms and guidelines? Let’s look at Scripture to find some answers to these questions.

First, God intended sex to be enjoyed between a man and a woman in marriage. God created Eve for Adam because Adam needed a mate comparable to him. He needed companionship, relationship, and intimacy. So God chose marriage as a sacred and honorable relationship in which to meet those needs (Genesis 2:23-25).

Second, throughout Scripture we are commanded to avoid all forms of sexual immorality (Acts 15:29 ; Romans 1:29 ; 1 Corinthians 6:13-18 ; Galatians 5:19 ; 1 Thessalonians 4:3). That God is concerned about sexual purity is clear in the Old Testament (Deuteronomy 22). In the New Testament, Paul said that satisfying one’s burning passions before marriage is not an option for the believer (1 Corinthians 7:2,8-9).

Third, when we enjoy another’s body (physically or mentally) for sexual pleasure outside of marriage, we are guilty of covetousness. Exodus 20:17 says, “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house, you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.” To covet means “to desire, take pleasure in, and delight in.” The point is that you may not take what is not yours. You may not take illegitimate delight in what does not belong to you. One must ask, “Am I selfishly delighting in (coveting) what is not mine?” Our bodies belong only to God and to our spouse (1 Corinthians 6:19; 7:4).

Last, as followers of Christ, we must govern all of our behavior, decisions, and thoughts with the principle of love (Matthew 22:37-40). What does it mean to love your date? Loving means to put your date’s welfare, both short-term and long-term, above your own desires. To love is to respect and protect (1 Corinthians 13:4-7). We should test our intentions and actions by asking ourselves some questions: “Am I really seeking to do what God wants me to do?” “Am I placing my date’s welfare above my desires, thus loving that person?” “How does my dating life stand up to the test of love?”

The world wants us to believe that sex outside of marriage is okay. But without the commitment of marriage, sex is a shallow illusion of intimacy. It is nothing more than erotic stimulation and/or a temporary escape from loneliness. It is basically selfish. Consequently, it often becomes a means to manipulate and control others. This easily leads into the strange perversions of sexuality to which we as a sinful, desperate people are prone.

This is far from what God intended for His children. God loves us and wants only the best for us. God has given us all good things to enjoy, sex included (John 13:34 ;James 1:17). So how will we best enjoy our sexuality? Within the security of a committed marital relationship. Within a loving marriage there is assurance, accountability, and a commitment to work on the relationship when times are difficult.

You may wonder, “How far can I go before marriage?” Except for intercourse, Scripture does not specifically outline what is and what is not forbidden. God leaves that up to us to decide, keeping in mind the principles above. However, it is wise to prepare ourselves before we enter into a romantic relationship.

First- Set your standards now! 
Don’t wait for a passionate moment to decide what is off limits. Holding hands, warm hugs, and kissing are all natural expressions of true love and genuine care for a person. If a touch like this does not cause you to lust and it is done out of respect for another, it can be considered an appropriate touch. There are, however, more intimate physical expressions that should be reserved for a married couple. They are designed to stimulate and excite and to culminate in sexual intercourse. These activities should be avoided by a dating couple because their purpose is to prepare the body for sex. Examples of these activities are fondling of breasts or genitals, heavy and passionate kissing, necking, petting, and oral sex. This list is not conclusive, however. If touching another causes you to lust, or if it defrauds that person, it’s time to back off.

Second- Listen to the little voice inside! 
If you are doing something or are in a situation that is causing you to feel uncomfortable, guilty, or violated, listen to those feelings. They are there for a reason. Because there is a natural drive within each of us to protect ourselves, the feelings we have are “early warning” indicators that we may be experiencing personal harm. We need to trust our feelings, speak up, and exercise listening to that “little voice.”

Third- Picture it! 
Imagine that the person you are dating is your future mate. That’s not so difficult. But now picture that person with someone else on a date. How would you want that date to go? How far would you want that sexual relationship proceed? What kind of activities would be off limits then? Now think of the person you are with as someone else’s future mate. How are you going to leave this person? A little used? Is that how you want your potential mate? How do you want your sister to be treated on a date? How do you want your brother to act? This little exercise puts our dating life in perspective, because we all have people so special to us that we want to love and protect them. This is how we should approach the person we are dating — as someone special to be loved and honored.

Waiting for sex until marriage can be difficult. We’re often tempted to choose what will give us instant pleasure. A man and a woman who are tempted to give in to their strong sexual desires will do well to admit their struggle before God, trust Him that He will meet their needs, and use wisdom and self-control to avoid falling into the trap of premarital sex.

Will God still love us if we choose the path that leads away from Him? Will He forgive us if we have not lived up to His standard of purity? Of course — we all struggle with living up to God’s standards. David is a good example of a man who gave in to the temptation of sex outside of marriage (2 Samuel 11:3–12:20). He and Bathsheba, the wife of Uriah, had sex. David lied and committed murder to try to cover his tracks. After he was confronted with his sin by the prophet Nathan, he repented and God forgave him. However, David still had to live with the consequences of his choices. He had to live with the fact that he had a man murdered. David’s reputation was irreparably marred, his son died, and his household was thrown into disarray. David suffered greatly because of his choice to have sex with Bathsheba. How will you choose to live?

ASUS : Inspiring Innovation - Persistent Perfection


Inspiring Innovation - Persistent Perfection 

YEEESSSS, sukses juga jadi “brand ambassador” nya ASUS hehehe. Saat pertama kali saya masuk ke tempat kerja saya yang baru di awal tahun 2011, tidak ada satupun pengguna ASUS di kantor tersebut bahkan hampir di semua kantor lingkungan pemerintahan, tidak ada brand ASUS karena semua menggunakan brand T****** dan C*****, kemudian pelan tapi pasti brand - brand tersebut mulai tergantikan dengan ASUS. Teman – teman saya yang melihat saya menggunakan ASUS, tanpa masalah dan tidak neko – neko, akhirnya mengikuti jejak saya, memilih menggunakan ASUS untuk teman kerja mereka, jadi di ruangan kerja saya saat ini semuanya sudah pengguna ASUS :) cool kan? Oh ya kakak saya juga pengguna ASUS persis seperti saya. Saya jadi pengguna ASUS juga karena ipar saya yang mengenalkannya. See, betapa berpengaruhnya Word of Mouth. Saya tidak mempunyai ikatan apa – apa dengan ASUS, saya hanya puas dengan brand ini jadi sudah sewajarnya jika saya merekomendasikan brand ini kepada orang – orang terdekat saya. Saat ini saya menggunakan ASUS dengan spesifikasi seperti berikut :

Awal tahun ini saya melihat info ASUS TAICHI jadi wish list saya saat ini adalah ingin sekali memilikinya tapi harganya mahal, adakah yang mau memberikannya untuk saya? :) #Ngarep . Semoga bisa memilikinya segera. I love the technology!

The Boy in the Stripped Pajamas


"Lines may divide us, but hope will unite us"
This is one of my favorite movie, based on the novel of the same name by John Boyne, set during World War II/Holocaust and explore the horror of Nazi extermination camp. The story begin with a perfect family life until the SS-Obersturmbannführer, Ralf and his family move from Berlin to the countryside, Poland after Ralf is promoted to commandant of a Nazi concentration camp. Ralf’s son, 8 year old, Bruno, face that he don’t have friend in the new place, starting to sneaking out and trekking through the woods to an isolated and met a boy who’s wear stripped pajamas, Shmuel, a Jewish boy. Bruno and Shmuel finally became a good friend which is forbidden during the holocaust. At the end, they booth die at gas chamber, holding hand each other, it was very touching, you should watch it by yourself.

Holocaust movies and its history always attract me, I always wondering how that thing could happen, a dark history of human life. I've been to one of the concentration camp at Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial Site in Münich last July 2012 and that’s struck me, trying to imagine what’s happen there during the holocaust, I think I won’t go back there again.





January 30, 2013 denote as eight decades since Hitler was appointed chancellor on January 30, 1933 by the president Paul von Hindenburg. Just days ahead of the 80th anniversary of Adolf Hitler's takeover of power, Angela Merkel, the German chancellor said on Saturday, January 26 :  We must clearly say, generation after generation, and say it again: with courage, civil courage, each individual can help ensure that racism and anti-Semitism have no chanceYES, WE MUST! No matter what our race, we are God’s handiwork.

Prisoners


Aha, this is my first posting in 2013, I hope this is going to be a year of writing for me ^-^ 

Every Monday morning on my way from home to office, I've always pass the prison in route 6 and I saw some prisoner outside the building without surveillance or without safeguards, looks like they’re heading to some civilian home who’s pay them to do some job. It is one of the ways to train them to live their life after they get their freedom one day. For a moment they are free, but after that they have to get back to their cell. When I saw them, my heart is full of compassion then my mind can’t stop thinking about what if Jesus didn't die at cross and rise from the dead? We will still become a prisoner of sin and devil. How come we become a free man? So thank you Jesus for your salvation. I don’t want to be a prisoner of sin, I want to be free, so Jesus please rules my life.
