take time to realize

Ivan Seidenberg says “Do your best performance, because someone’s watching over you”

Sebuah ungkapan jenius yang sering kali tak disadari oleh kebanyakan orang.

Banyak orang baik yang merasa sedih karena merasa tak diperhatikan oleh orang lain dan bahkan mengeluh mengapa orang jahat lebih beruntung dari dirinya.

Tak sedikit pula orang jahat yang melenggang karena merasa tak ada yang menyadari kejahatannya.

(suatu fenomena kontradiktif yang dekat dengan kehidupan kita)

Lessons for us

Apapun yang kita lakukan (red: good or bad) pasti ada yang sedang mengamati kita,,jika bukan manusia, kita harus tahu bahwa ada Tuhan yang selalu memperhatikan tingkah laku kita,,so, do our best and act like a best man

when GOD made you

 

It’s always been a mystery to me
How two hearts can come together
And love can last forever
But now that I have found you, I believe
That a miracle has come
When God sends the perfect one
Now gone are all my questions about why
And I’ve never been so sure of anything in my life 

Chorus:
I wonder what God was thinking
When He created you
I wonder if He knew everything I would need
Because He made all my dreams come true
When God made you
He must have been thinking about me

I promise that wherever you may go
Wherever life may lead you
With all my heart I’ll be there too
From this moment on I want you to know
I’ll let nothing come between us
And I will love the ones you love
Now gone are all my questions about why
And I have never been so sure of anything in my life

Chorus:
I wonder what God was thinking
When He created you
I wonder if He knew everything I would need
Because He made all my dreams come true
When God made you
He must have been thinking about me

Bridge:
He made the sun
He made the moon
To harmonize in perfect tune
One can’t move without the other
They just have to be together
And that is why I know it’s true
You’re for me and I’m for you
Cause my world just can’t be right
Without you in my life

Chorus:
I wonder what God was thinking
When He created you
I wonder if He knew everything I would need
Because He made all my dreams come true

Tag chorus:
He must have heard every prayer I’ve been praying
Yes He knew everything I would need
When God made you
When dreams come true 
When God made you He must have been thinking about me

Izinkan TUHAN yang mengemudikan hidup kita

Kita tidak pernah mempertanyakan ke mana sopir bus yang kita tumpangi akan membawa busnya. Setidaknya tidak sesering kita mempertanyakan Tuhan, kemana Dia akan membawa hidup kita.

Take Time To Think:

Alkisah,
Ada seorang ayah mengajak puterinya, Asa, 6 tahun, mengendarai mobil menuju ke sebuah museum.

Sudah lama Asa menginginkannya.

Si Ayah kebetulan hari itu mengambil cuti dan sengaja mengantar anaknya ke tempat yang sudah lama diimpikan Asa itu tanpa didampingi Bunda.
Di perjalanan, tak hentinya Asa bertanya kepada si Ayah,

“Ayah tahu tempatnya?”, tanya Asa yang duduk di samping kemudi Ayah.

“Tahu, jangan kuatir …, ” jawab Ayah sambil tersenyum.

“Memang Ayah tahu tempat jalan-jalannya?”

“Ayah tahu, jangan kuatir …”

“Benar, Kita tidak akan kesasar yah?”

“Benar, jangan kuatir …,” jawab Ayah tetap dengan sabar.

“Nanti kalau Asa haus, bagaimana ?”

“Tenang, nanti Ayah beli air mineral …”

“Terus kalau lapar?”

“Tenang, Ayah ajak Asa ke restoran …”

“Memang ayah tahu tempat restorannya?”

“Tahu, sayang …”

“Memang ayah bawa cukup uang?”

“Cukup, sayang …”

“Kalau Asa ingin ke kamar kecil?”

“Ayah antar sampai depan pintu toilet wanita …”

“Memang di museum ada toiletnya?”

” Ada , jangan kuatir …”

“Ayah bawa tissue juga ?”

“Bawa, jangan kuatir …,” kata ayah sembari membelokkan mobilnya masu jalan tikus, karena macet.

“Kok Ayah belok ke jalan jelek dan sempit begini ?”

“Ayah cari jalan yang lebih cepat … supaya Asa bisa menikmati museum lebih lama nanti …”

Tidak berapa lama, Asa kemudian tidak bertanya-tanya lagi.

Giliran san Ayah yang bingung,
“Kenapa Asa diam, sayang?”

“Ya, Asa percaya Ayah deh! Ayah pasti tahu, akan antar serta bantu Asa nanti!”

 

Sekilas mungkin reaksi kita kesal pada tokoh Asa — yang terlalu banyak bertanya dan penuh kekhawatiran.

Namun bila kita jujur, seringkali kita bersikap seperti Asa. Kita bertanya banyak hal mengenai apa yang kita hadapi dan apa yang akan terjadi dalam hidup kita. Kita terlalu khawatir akan hidup dan kehidupan yang kita jalani. Padahal sesungguhnya Tuhan “sedang mengemudi” untuk Kita semua.

Kadang Ia membawa kita ke “gang sempit” yang barangkali tidak enak, tetapi itu semua untuk menghindari “kemacetan” di jalan yang lain. Kadang Ia memperlambat “kendaraan-Nya”, kadang mempercepat. Semuanya ada maksudnya. Dan maksud yang terbaiklah yang Ia miliki atas hidup dan kehidupan Kita.

Ada baiknya kalau kita menyerahkan hal-hal yang di luar jangkauan Kita kepada-Nya. Biarkan Dia berkarya atas hidup Kita, biarkan Dia mengemudikan hidup Kita, sebaliknya fokuskan hidup pada hal-hal yang bisa Kita kerjakan, dengan berkat dan kemampuan yang sudah Kita dapatkan dari-Nya.

 

Tuhan Memberkati

Riris Yunita Simanjuntak’s Prayer

Dear Lord,
I pray for a Christian and Bataknese man, that will be a part of my life
A man that really loves YOU more than everything
A man that lives not for himself but for YOU
The most important is, I want a heart that really loves and thirsty of YOU
and he must know for whom and for what he lives
So his life is not useless
Someone that has a wise heart not only a smart brain
A man that not only loves me but also respect me
A man that not only adores me but can warn me when I am wrong
A man that loves me not because of my appearance but my heart
A man that can be my best friend in every time and situation
A man that make me feel like a woman when I am beside him
I do not ask for a perfect man
But I ask for an imperfect man
A man that needs my support for his strength
A man that needs my prayer for his life
A man that needs my smile to cover his sadness
A man that needs my love so he feels being loved
A man that needs me to make his life more beautiful
And also I ask
Make me be a woman that make him be proud
Please give me a heart that really loves YOU
so I can love him with YOUR love and not with my love
Please give me YOUR gentle spirit
so my beauty doesn’t come from my outside but comes from YOU
Please give me YOUR hands
that I always be able to pray for him
Please give me YOUR eyes
so I can see many good things in him and not the bad one
Please give me YOUR mouth that is filled with YOUR words of wisdom and encouragement
so I can support him everyday
and Please give me YOUR lips
and I will smile at him every single time
And I do pray that when we finally meet
Both of us can say
“How Great Thou Art”
I know that YOU want us to meet at YOUR right time
And YOU will make everything be beautiful in YOUR PERFECT TIME
Amen

LOVE is for [both] Venus and Mars Creature

Mahluk Venus dan Mars (red: Pria dan Wanita) memiliki kedudukan yang sama dimata cinta.
Keduanya sama-sama korban dari hasil tembakan panah asmara bocah kecil berambut pirang keriting yang biasa dikenal dengan nama /cupid/.
Sebuah anak panah yang melesat melewati busur secara natural akan tertancap pada dua insan.
Tepat di hati keduanya!!!  

What really matter is They have different ways to express their own feeling.
No matter their ways are "the feeling" is already there!! 
Now They're trying to describe indescribable feeling that they had.
"The Feeling" which is not only for Venus but also for Mars, "that feeling" is for both of them -- Venus and Mars Creature.

Rasa itu tertuang dalam rangkaian kata dengan cara bertutur yang khas mahluk Venus dan Mars dibawah ini:

———-

Venus’ side — Jakarta

———–

Hi there,
I wanna tell you a silly untold secret about my feeling toward him and what I feel for keeping distance with him:
I miss him
I miss him since the moment we said “bye” each other
I miss the customized tone that only alerts when he texts or calls me
I miss his childish act for being around me
I miss the way we could joke about everything
I miss our meaningless, stupid, little fight, that soon will be ended with his calling me JUGUL!
I miss the way we could talk together without getting bored
I miss sharing stories with him
I miss his fragrance
I miss his smile, the way he laughs, his gestures, his voice, his bataknese accent
I miss the way he’s pinching my arm although it hurts
I miss the way we could act like best friends and lovers
I miss our karaoke time, the way we sang, the way we danced, the way we expressed ourselves
I miss moments when we played in the kids station
I miss his expression when he felt pain and at the same time wanna hide it from me, at that moment I really wanna comfort him to ease his pain
I miss awkward moment everytime we said “goodbye”
I miss the way he says my name
I miss the way he calls me randomly with so many strange names
I miss the way he begs me to eat regularly
I miss his eyes
I miss every single moment when he stares at me
I miss being with him, just to see his face for a minute or a second could light up my day and even my week
I miss him
I miss us
I miss everything we had
that’s all

I do miss him

I wish he can feel it too

:’(

Mars’ side — Cikarang

————–

Dear Venus,

Hi Venus, I’m not good enough to express my feeling, but many things I felt since I met you:

- I love your faith
- I love the way you laugh
- I love your jokes
- I love your words
- I love your spirit
- I love your voice
- I love how you treat “this boy” as a man
- I want you to be happy with me
- I want you to feel comfort for being around me
- I want you to pass everything with me
- I want you
- I wish God entrust you to me

Venus, something happened to my feeling, and I don’t know whether it’s good or bad. Our distance make me strange. I get used to keep in contact with you. When I wake up in the morning, I check my phone automatically just to make sure do I get message from you. Your message really affects my morning, is it good?

Hahahaa, finally I can describe what I feel, although it might look standard

All I know is,

I want you….. I need you…. I love you….

I hope you can feel it too.

:)

Valedictorian Speaks Out Against Schooling in Graduation Speech

Here I stand

There is a story of a young, but earnest Zen student who approached his teacher, and asked the Master,

“If I work very hard and diligently, how long will it take for me to find Zen?

The Master thought about this, then replied, “Ten years.” The student then said, “But what if I work very, very hard and really apply myself to learn fast – How long then?” Replied the Master, “Well, twenty years.” “But, if I really, really work at it, how long then?” asked the student. “Thirty years,” replied the Master. “But, I do not understand,” said the disappointed student. “At each time that I say I will work harder, you say it will take me longer. Why do you say that?” Replied the Master, “When you have one eye on the goal, you only have one eye on the path.”

This is the dilemma I’ve faced within the American education system.
We are so focused on a goal, whether it be passing a test, or graduating as first in the class. However, in this way, we do not really learn.
We do whatever it takes to achieve our original objective.

Some of you may be thinking, “Well, if you pass a test, or become valedictorian, didn’t you learn something? Well, yes, you learned something, but not all that you could have. Perhaps, you only learned how to memorize names, places, and dates to later on forget in order to clear your mind for the next test. School is not all that it can be. Right now, it is a place for most people to determine that their goal is to get out as soon as possible.

I am now accomplishing that goal. I am graduating. I should look at this as a positive experience, especially being at the top of my class. However, in retrospect, I cannot say that I am any more intelligent than my peers. I can attest that I am only the best at doing what I am told and working the system. Yet, here I stand, and I am supposed to be proud that I have completed this period of indoctrination. I will leave in the fall to go on to the next phase expected of me, in order to receive a paper document that certifies that I am capable of work. But I contend that I am a human being, a thinker, an adventurer – not a worker. A worker is someone who is trapped within repetition – a slave of the system set up before him. But now, I have successfully shown that I was the best slave. I did what I was told to the extreme. While others sat in class and doodled to later become great artists, I sat in class to take notes and become a great test-taker. While others would come to class without their homework done because they were reading about an interest of theirs, I never missed an assignment. While others were creating music and writing lyrics, I decided to do extra credit, even though I never needed it. So, I wonder, why did I even want this position? Sure, I earned it, but what will come of it? When I leave educational institutionalism, will I be successful or forever lost? I have no clue about what I want to do with my life; I have no interests because I saw every subject of study as work, and I excelled at every subject just for the purpose of excelling, not learning. And quite frankly, now I’m scared.

John Taylor Gatto, a retired school teacher and activist critical of compulsory schooling, asserts, “We could encourage the best qualities of youthfulness – curiosity, adventure, resilience, the capacity for surprising insight simply by being more flexible about time, texts, and tests, by introducing kids into truly competent adults, and by giving each student what autonomy he or she needs in order to take a risk every now and then. But we don’t do that.” Between these cinderblock walls, we are all expected to be the same. We are trained to ace every standardized test, and those who deviate and see light through a different lens are worthless to the scheme of public education, and therefore viewed with contempt.

H. L. Mencken wrote in The American Mercury for April 1924 that the aim of public education is not “to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence. … Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim … is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States.”

To illustrate this idea, doesn’t it perturb you to learn about the idea of “critical thinking?” Is there really such a thing as “uncritically thinking?” To think is to process information in order to form an opinion. But if we are not critical when processing this information, are we really thinking? Or are we mindlessly accepting other opinions as truth?

This was happening to me, and if it wasn’t for the rare occurrence of an avant-garde tenth grade English teacher, Donna Bryan, who allowed me to open my mind and ask questions before accepting textbook doctrine, I would have been doomed. I am now enlightened, but my mind still feels disabled. I must retrain myself and constantly remember how insane this ostensibly sane place really is.

And now here I am in a world guided by fear, a world suppressing the uniqueness that lies inside each of us, a world where we can either acquiesce to the inhuman nonsense of corporatism and materialism or insist on change. We are not enlivened by an educational system that clandestinely sets us up for jobs that could be automated, for work that need not be done, for enslavement without fervency for meaningful achievement. We have no choices in life when money is our motivational force. Our motivational force ought to be passion, but this is lost from the moment we step into a system that trains us, rather than inspires us.

We are more than robotic bookshelves, conditioned to blurt out facts we were taught in school. We are all very special, every human on this planet is so special, so aren’t we all deserving of something better, of using our minds for innovation, rather than memorization, for creativity, rather than futile activity, for rumination rather than stagnation? We are not here to get a degree, to then get a job, so we can consume industry-approved placation after placation. There is more, and more still.

The saddest part is that the majority of students don’t have the opportunity to reflect as I did. The majority of students are put through the same brainwashing techniques in order to create a complacent labor force working in the interests of large corporations and secretive government, and worst of all, they are completely unaware of it. I will never be able to turn back these 18 years. I can’t run away to another country with an education system meant to enlighten rather than condition. This part of my life is over, and I want to make sure that no other child will have his or her potential suppressed by powers meant to exploit and control. We are human beings. We are thinkers, dreamers, explorers, artists, writers, engineers. We are anything we want to be – but only if we have an educational system that supports us rather than holds us down. A tree can grow, but only if its roots are given a healthy foundation.

For those of you out there that must continue to sit in desks and yield to the authoritarian ideologies of instructors, do not be disheartened. You still have the opportunity to stand up, ask questions, be critical, and create your own perspective. Demand a setting that will provide you with intellectual capabilities that allow you to expand your mind instead of directing it. Demand that you be interested in class. Demand that the excuse, “You have to learn this for the test” is not good enough for you. Education is an excellent tool, if used properly, but focus more on learning rather than getting good grades.

For those of you that work within the system that I am condemning, I do not mean to insult; I intend to motivate. You have the power to change the incompetencies of this system. I know that you did not become a teacher or administrator to see your students bored. You cannot accept the authority of the governing bodies that tell you what to teach, how to teach it, and that you will be punished if you do not comply. Our potential is at stake.

For those of you that are now leaving this establishment, I say, do not forget what went on in these classrooms. Do not abandon those that come after you. We are the new future and we are not going to let tradition stand. We will break down the walls of corruption to let a garden of knowledge grow throughout America. Once educated properly, we will have the power to do anything, and best of all, we will only use that power for good, for we will be cultivated and wise. We will not accept anything at face value. We will ask questions, and we will demand truth.

So, here I stand. I am not standing here as valedictorian by myself. I was molded by my environment, by all of my peers who are sitting here watching me. I couldn’t have accomplished this without all of you. It was all of you who truly made me the person I am today. It was all of you who were my competition, yet my backbone. In that way, we are all valedictorians.

I am now supposed to say farewell to this institution, those who maintain it, and those who stand with me and behind me, but I hope this farewell is more of a “see you later” when we are all working together to rear a pedagogic movement.

But first, let’s go get those pieces of paper that tell us that we’re smart enough to do so!

pembelajaran tersedia di sekitarmu

Tuhan memberiku sebuah tugas membawa seekor keong jalan-jalan.

Aku tak dapat jalan terlalu cepat, keong sudah berusaha keras merangkak.

Namun setiap kali aku menengok, ia hanya beranjak sedemikian sedikit.

 

Aku mendesak, menghardik, memarahinya,

Keong memandangku dengan pandangan meminta-maaf, serasa berkata,

“Aku sudah berusaha dengan segenap tenaga !”

 

Aku menariknya, menyeret, bahkan menendangnya, keong terluka.

Ia mengucurkan keringat, nafas tersengal-sengal, merangkak ke depan.

 

Sungguh aneh, mengapa Tuhan memintaku mengajak seekor keong berjalan-jalan.

 

Ya Tuhan! Mengapa ?

Langit sunyi-senyap.

Biarkan saja keong merangkak di depan, aku kesal di belakang.

Pelankan langkah, tenangkan hati…tiba-tiba terdengar suara lirih di dasar hatiku

 

 

Oh? Tiba-tiba tercium aroma bunga, ternyata ini adalah sebuah taman bunga.

Aku rasakan hembusan sepoi angin, ternyata angin malam demikian lembut.

Ada lagi! Aku dengar suara kicau burung, suara dengung cacing.

Aku lihat langit penuh bintang cemerlang.

Oh? Mengapa dulu tidak rasakan semua ini ?

Barulah aku teringat, Mungkin aku telah salah menduga!

 

Ternyata Tuhan meminta keong menuntunku jalan-jalan sehingga aku dapat mamahami dan merasakan keindahan taman ini yang tak pernah kualami kalau aku berjalan sendiri dengan cepatnya.

 

“He is here with me for a reason”

 

Saat bertemu dengan orang yang benar-benar engkau kasihi, haruslah berusaha memperoleh kesempatan untuk bersamanya seumur hidupmu.

Karena ketika dia telah pergi, segalanya telah terlambat.

Saat bertemu teman yang dapat dipercaya, rukunlah bersamanya.

Karena seumur hidup manusia, teman sejati tak mudah ditemukan.

Saat bertemu penolongmu, ingat untuk bersyukur padanya.

Karena ialah yang mengubah hidupmu.

Saat bertemu orang yang pernah kau cintai, ingatlah dengan tersenyum untuk berterima-kasih .

Karena ialah orang yang membuatmu lebih mengerti tentang kasih.

Saat bertemu orang yang pernah kau benci, sapalah dengan tersenyum.

Karena ia membuatmu semakin teguh.

Saat bertemu orang yang pernah mengkhianatimu, baik-baiklah berbincanglah dengannya.

Karena jika bukan karena dia, hari ini engkau tak memahami dunia ini.

Saat bertemu orang yang pernah diam-diam kau cintai, berkatilah dia.

Karena saat kau mencintainya, bukankah berharap ia bahagia ?

Saat bertemu orang yang tergesa-gesa meninggalkanmu, berterima-kasihlah bahwa ia pernah ada dalam hidupmu.

Karena ia adalah bagian dari nostalgiamu.

Saat bertemu orang yang pernah salah-paham padamu, gunakan saat tersebut untuk menjelaskannya.

Karena engkau mungkin hanya punya satu kesempatan itu saja untuk menjelaskan.

Saat bertemu orang yang saat ini menemanimu seumur hidup, berterima-kasihlah sepenuhnya bahwa ia mencintaimu.

Karena saat ini kalian mendapatkan kebahagiaan dan cinta sejati.

Tuhan menjadikan segala sesuatu indah pada waktuNya

Ada seorang anak laki-laki yang berambisi bahwa suatu hari nanti ia akan menjadi jenderal angkatan darat. Anak itu pandai dan memiliki ciri-ciri yang lebih daripada cukup untuk dapat membawanya kemanapun ia mau. Untuk itu ia bersyukur kepada Allah, oleh karena ia adalah seorang anak yang takut akan Allah dan ia selalu berdoa agar supaya suatu hari nanti impiannya itu akan menjadi kenyataan. Sayang sekali, ketika saatnya tiba baginya untuk bergabung dengan angkatan darat, ia ditolak oleh karena memiliki telapak kaki rata.

 

Setelah berulang kali berusaha, ia kemudian melepaskan hasratnya untuk menjadi jenderal dan untuk hal itu ia mempersalahkan Allah yang tidak menjawab doanya. Ia merasa seperti berada seorang diri, dengan perasaan yang kalah, dan diatas segalanya, rasa amarah yang belum pernah dialaminya sebelumnya. Amarah yang mulai ditujukannya terhadap Allah. Ia tahu bahwa Allah ada, namun tidak mempercayaiNya lagi sebagai seorang sahabat, tetapi sebagai seorang tiran (penguasa yang jahat dan tak berlaku adil). Ia tidak pernah lagi berdoa atau melangkahkan kakinya ke dalam gereja. Ketika orang-orang seperti biasanya berbicara tentang Allah yang Maha Pengasih, maka ia akan mengejek dan menanyakan pertanyaan-pertanyaan rumit yang akan membuat orang-orang percaya itu kebingungan.

 

Ia kemudian memutuskan untuk masuk perguruan tinggi dan menjadi dokter. Dan begitulah, ia menjadi dokter dan beberapa tahun kemudian menjadi seorang ahli bedah yang handal. Ia menjadi pelopor di dalam pembedahan yang berisiko tinggi dimana pasien tidak memiliki kemungkinan hidup lagi apabila tidak ditangani oleh ahli bedah muda ini. Sekarang, semua pasiennya memiliki kesempatan, suatu hidup yang baru. Selama bertahun-tahun, ia telah menyelamatkan beribu-ribu jiwa, baik anak-anak maupun orang dewasa. Para orang tua sekarang dapat tinggal dengan berbahagia bersama dengan putra atau putri mereka yang dilahirkan kembali, dan para ibu yang sakit parah sekarang masih dapat mengasihi keluarganya.

 

Para ayah yang hancur hati oleh karena tak seorangpun yang dapat memelihara keluarganya setelah kematiannya, telah diberikan kesempatan baru. Setelah ia menjadi lebih tua maka ia melatih para ahli bedah lain yang bercita-cita tinggi dengan tekhnik bedah barunya, dan lebih banyak lagi jiwa yang diselamatkan. Pada suatu hari ia menutup matanya dan pergi menjumpai Tuhan. Di situ, masih penuh dengan kebencian, pria itu bertanya kepada Allah mengapa doa-doanya tidak pernah dijawab, dan Tuhan berkata,

“Pandanglah ke langit, anakKu, dan lihatlah impianmu menjadi kenyataan.”

Di sana, ia dapat melihat dirinya sendiri sebagai seorang anak laki-laki yang berdoa untuk bisa menjadi seorang prajurit. Ia melihat dirinya masuk Angkatan Darat dan menjadi prajurit. Di sana ia sombong dan ambisius, dengan pandangan mata yang seakan-akan berkata bahwa suatu hari nanti ia akan memimpin sebuah resimen. Ia kemudian dipanggil untuk mengikuti peperangannya yang pertama, akan tetapi ketika ia berada di camp di garis depan, sebuah bom jatuh dan membunuhnya. Ia dimasukkan ke dalam peti kayu untuk dikirimkan kembali kepada keluarganya. Semua ambisinya kini hancur berkeping-keping saat orang tuanya menangis dan terus menangis.

 

Lalu Tuhan berkata,

“Sekarang lihatlah bagaimana rencanaKu telah terpenuhi sekalipun engkau tidak setuju.”

Sekali lagi ia memandang ke langit. Di sana ia memperhatikan kehidupannya, hari demi hari dan berapa banyak jiwa yang telah diselamatkannya. Ia melihat senyum di wajah pasiennya dan di wajah anggota keluarganya dan kehidupan baru yang telah diberikannya kepada mereka dengan menjadi seorang ahli bedah. Kemudian di antara para pasiennya, ia melihat seorang anak laki-laki yang juga memiliki impian untuk menjadi seorang prajurit kelak, namun sayangnya dia terbaring sakit. Ia melihat bagaimana ia telah menyelamatkan nyawa anak laki-laki itu melalui pembedahan yang dilakukannya. Hari ini anak laki-laki itu telah dewasa dan menjadi seorang jenderal. Ia hanya dapat menjadi jenderal setelah ahli bedah itu menyelamatkan nyawanya.

 

Sampai di situ, Ia tahu bahwa Tuhan ternyata selalu berada bersama dengannya. Ia mengerti bagaimana Allah telah memakainya sebagai alatNya untuk menyelamatkan beribu-ribu jiwa, dan memberikan masa depan kepada anak laki-laki yang ingin menjadi prajurit itu.

 

Lesson Learnt:

Tuhan tahu persis setiap detail kehidupanmu, Dia merangkai setiap benang-benang kehidupanmu dengan tanganNya sendiri.

Entah bagaimana caramu memvisualisasikannya, yakinilah bahwa Ia sangat baik, teramat baik dan hanya yang terbaiklah yang dirancangkanNya untuk hidup dan kehidupanmu.

Tuhan memberkatimu senantiasa
