I will praise You in this storm

memuji Tuhan dalam kesenangan, mungkin mudah. Tapi dalam kesusahan? Pujian berubah jadi teriakan minta tolong. Udah bukan bersyukur lagi namanya. Saat kita memuji Tuhan even waktu kita dalam masalah dan Dia terasa jauh, itu baru hebat.

I was sure by now,God, that You would have reached down
and wiped our tears away,
stepped in and saved the day.
But once again, I say amen
and it's still raining
as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain,
"I'm with you"
and as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
the God who gives and takes away.

And I'll praise you in this storm
and I will lift my hands
for You are who You are
no matter where I am
and every tear I've cried
You hold in your hand
You never left my side
and though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry to You
and raised me up again
my strength is almost gone how can I carry on
if I can't find You
and as the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
"I'm with you"
and as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise
the God who gives and takes away

I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth
I lift my eyes onto the hills
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth

Keep Striving

"When you have a dream, you have to believe it that you will realize it one day. That way you have the strength to fight for it. At the same time, we must also be aware that from time to time there are always impediments, but they should not deter us from striving to reach our dream. In fact, the impediments should spur us on to be innovative and look for the right solution."

"Success is a blessing for me. It makes me work harder to realize my dream more fully. So don’t stop after one achievement, because success is never ending. There are further achievements to make after one success."

Self Portrait

Youtube Songs

Lagi mau ngerjain report tapi ujung-ujungnya malah buka-buka youtube. Dan akhirnya terdampar disana dan menemukan lagu-lagu yang mnurut saya bagus. hehe.

The lyrics are funnyyy!
Here it is:

Geeky Love

Sittin on my couch just you and me
I make the first move to turn on the tv
It's late at night and your in no danger
Here in my arms as we watch power rangers
I know i'm not clever, I know i'm not smooth
But when it comes to ddr i know how to bust a move
I do this so you smile, I'm not gonna lie
I'll keep on doing this as long as i'm your geeky guy

You could be my wonder woman I could be your superman
We can fight the crime together even when were hand in hand
I'm not much on saving worlds that don't mean i'm a zero
Yet when you need me most i could be your guitar hero
Baby I know

I know im not the coolest or "the bomb"
but i can name every pokemon
I'll be your mario, I'll be your link
I'll save your world before you even think girl

I see you giggiling giving me those little looks
im so oblivious with my nose in those comic books
Realize i fell for you long before my nintendo days
I just hope you fall for me and all of my nerdy ways
Our love is risin', I see you smilin'
Believe me there aint a reason for cryin'
Doing everything to gain a level in your heart
But I can't make the move until you press start

So am I just so out of date that you just wish to throw away
Am I just a bonus round that takes a part in all your games
Maybe just a pop up that you click delete from your fate
Could I be the one whos all up in your top eight
Girl I can't wait

I cant explain this feeling you been giving me
Unknown forces makes me want to turn off my 360
Forget my wii I know that we got have this specialty to see
That love and hope will be our rope to hold til we live happily

So just for a moment be that damsel in distress
Where I can carry you within my arms and my chest
When they ask about this song I'll say I need to show her
Why am I so in love with her even after game over

Here is another video called Mario Kart's Love Song

You be my princess
I'll be your toad
I'll follow behind you
on rainbow road
Protect you from red shells
wherever we go
I promise.

Noone will touch us
if we pick up a star
If you spin out
you can ride in my car
When we slide together
we generate sparks
in our wheels and our hearts

The finish line
is just around the bend
I'll pause this game
so our love will never end
Let's go again

The blue shell is coming
so I'll go ahead
If you hang behind
it'll hit me instead
but never look back
cause I'm down but not dead
I'll catch up to you

Don't worry about
Bowser or DK
Eat this glowing mushroom
and they'll all fade away

to the mushroom cup
and the flower cup
and the star cup
and the reverse cup

Anyone knows what to do?

Wednesday, May 5, 2010


I'm reading a good book currently. Written by John C Maxwell. Knowing who the author is, you could guess what it is about.

Ah yes. leadership.

I was flabbergasted by what he wrote inside, thereby it took a long time to finish it. I haven't finished reading it by the way. Some I read times and times again. Now I've just read a chapter about integrity and it did open my narrow mind to a deeper understanding about what integrity really means. And I don't want to stop until here, understanding. I want to do it. A book is never gonna change your life unless you do what you read, isn't it? That what books are for I guess.

Sooo. Integrity.
It is a state of being you, real you. Being who you are no matter where you are and who you are with. Being consistent. Your words and your deeds all must match up.

Some people spend their time building an image. But it's not what it's supposed to be. Image is what others think you are, while integrity is what you really are. Image might fail, integrity last. Rather than struggling to create a good image, we better struggling to increase our character value. Yes it takes longer time, but it worths. People will see who we are not what we try to appear to be.

Are you the same person no matter who you're with?

Me? Not really.

The first time I went for my internship, I want to create a good impression. I don't want to be late, speak english fluently, and do all a good professional designer should do. I tried to ask many questions also. *and I was so quiet at office! it was so damn torturing me!! Not because I was shy or something. It's because I didn't know how to translate my thought into a good english. hahaha.

Anyway, what I did is not for the sake of impression only of course. I was just trying to be a good intern. Really. It's not that I pretended to be someone else. :)

But as time goes by, people will figure out who I really am, the value that I had. I started to come late for some times, not initiative, asking less questions. My english become broken2 english lahh. Even when the boss dictate me what to write, I often spelled the words wrongly. So then he spelled it for me outloud!

"EEH, 'across' is with a single 'C' lahh. not 'accross'. A-C-R-O-S-S!"
How humiliating. hahaa.

Okay, so the point is, if you want to get a good value, don't start on the time you got work. Start from now! What you are at work is a mirrored image of what you are daily. Trust me. Even if you pretend, it won't be long for others to know.

Then, about consistency. Do you do what you say?

Me? again, not everything.

Integrity means living it myself before leading others. You cannot bring someone to a place that you've never gone. If you want to make others better, make your self better first. Only then you can influence others. By words people understand, by action people believe. People believe to what they see. So, let's be a good model for them. :)

last, a quote from the book.

"Life is like a vise. At times it will squeeze us. At those moments of pressure, whatever is inside will be found out. We cannot give what we do not have."

Sekilas pikiran

Tuhan ngga pernah salah ngomong.
Yang ada, kita yang salah denger. :p
ya ga?
