10 Years Strong

Hello. I’m pretty sure you all know, blogging plays a big part of my life.

Today I enter my 11th year of blogging. Yes, I started blogging 10 years ago! That’s pretty crazy. In a good way.

You can read everything I’ve posted (on the right bar, and scroll down), even from when I used Xanga. And I’ve attempted to organize my blog posts by type.

My dream and plan with blogging is to update, encourage, teach, and entertain, which are things I love doing anyway. And I hope at least some of you have been blessed by what I’ve blogged so far.

I love it and will continue. Don’t worry.

Lastly, I would like to say a big thank you to God, for being my main motivation and my rock. And you know, God usually speaks and reminds me of things while I blog. So it’s been a really effective way that He uses to show He’s trying to build a relationship with me. Looking back, I’m really grateful for my life of blogging. If you scroll down, you can see that I rarely miss a whole month of blogging. #thankful


Alright. Aaron Out.

Less Than Three But More Than Words 

Proverbs 31:30 (NKJV)  Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.

(Don’t kill me for sharing this pic. Or for this romantic thing I’m going to say)

Did you know that you’re my biggest light? And I’m your biggest fan. So we’re a power couple. Cuz our electricity is from God.

Ba dum tss

*so romantic*


I always thank God for you. You’ve been such a big blessing in my life. You always support me. And you’re a great companion. (and a great caretaker) (and now I’m fat)

Continue to be passionate for God. Continue to be passionate for the less privileged. You’ll be a super woman for God one day. I really believe that.
May your bond with God grow stronger and may He bless you more and more in every way. Because when He blesses you, I’m blessed as well.
Happy valentines day Joey

~In Love With My Rabbit~

Hope I’m not too lovey dovey over here. Don’t want to offend anyone.


Nah I don’t care.


I’m so happy that Joey’s mom has finally accepted me into her family and allowed me to date her daughter officially.

It’s really scary. To meet and talk to the family over dinner (22 Feb 2016) about this relationship and what it means to me. To announce to ministry leaders (5 days after that) that we want to be accountable and be responsible for our decisions and actions (proves that we’re over the puppy love stage) (or maybe not haha).

God has definitely been with us and I pray that He will continue to be with us throughout.


This two weeks has definitely been a roller coaster of craziness. But it’s really great to see that people who mean alot to me really do love me and support me. I guess God is really with me on this one. Joey has been a really great great support in life, and a great prayer partner for getting closer to God. And I’m really happy to see the even our family members are supportive of us. I’m so shy! But yeah, it’s great.

I had to overcome lots of fears and do lots of things I’ve never done before these past few months (since she’s my first girlfriend, ever). It has been really great.


And right when we are officially together, we get physically separated. She’s joining a 3 month bible and ministry program in Tung Ling Seminary in Subang. I did it 3 years ago. I met lots of great friends for life through this. So I know she will too. It’ll be great and awesome! She’ll love it. I know she will.

How am I doing, some of you are asking. Thanks for asking. Well. I’m okay for now. I guess reality hasn’t sunk in yet. Other than that, I’m really excited for Joey to get closer to God than she already is.

(if I seem emotionally unstable these few days, you know why)


For those of you who still read this blog, thank you so much!


I have to admit. I have been putting a lot of focus on everything else other than God. Relationships, work, and even ministry. I’m taking God for granted. So here are a few things I think I need to start doing:

  1. Read. I need to take some alone time to improve myself. Intellectually and spiritually. I do have some books at home, not a lot, but enough spiritual and ministry books to keep me occupied for the year or so. It would also definitely help me understand God more and keep me close to Him.
  2. Write. I’ve always wanted to teach and say something. I just got to do it. Probably need to take time out to blog again. I still have a draft blog post from a devotion that I wrote for about a month, but haven’t finished.
  3. Wake up earlier to pray. I notice that I pray more in the morning after I wake than than at night before I sleep. So I guess I’m more focused in the mornings. The only problem is my life culture is just that I do all my extracurricular activities at night. So I end up doing everything that takes up extra time till late at night, and find it very difficult to wake up early. Which means: SLEEP EARLY. Also, mornings have a fresh morning smell that helps connect me to a thankful mood a lot easier.

What else should I do? I don’t know. These 3 things are hard enough. Thank you.


Here’s a post I read today about Christ increasing and I decreasing. Good advice.


Lovers Are Losers

I Corinthians 13:1-7,13

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

I hope some of you are going “Huh? What?” to those verses up there. That’s probably because of the Old English from the King James Version of the bible. This is a famous chapter about Love.

Lots and lots of marriage ceremonies use these words. But wait a minute. You don’t see the word ‘Love’ even once? Shame on you.

I’m sure we’re all familiar with “Love is patient and is kind; love does not envy. Love does not brag, is not proud, doesn’t behave itself inappropriately, does not seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails…” So on and so forth. That sounds really good. Righteous, even. But for me, in context of how we use the word ‘LOVE’ today, people don’t get the gravity of what those words actually say.

These days, we use ‘love’ to explain a lovey dovey happy feeling inside that is an outcome rather than a cause. An Outcome!? A Feeling!? Shame on you again. People (old people especially) that have been through tough times know that love is not backing out of a relationship even when outcome or feeling says differently. It could be any love relationship; spouse, family, friends, car, house, or even for your country. It means Choosing and Standing Firm. Choice is not an outcome, choice happens right at the beginning before any action or word can even start.

But I’m sure you’re still wondering, why did I share that verse in King James Version? I’m sure you can see, the difference is the word Charity. Have you ever heard that ‘God Is Charity’? No? Me neither.

Think about this, as I said earlier, these days love is a feeling. Charity, however, is action, not a feeling. These days charity means giving to the poor. It also means losing something for someone else. A LOSS! The moment we hear the word charity, we cringe inside. Why? Because it is in our culture to ‘look out for number one’, me. Ouch. We’re just more used to saying “I’m already running low this month” rather than “I can skip one lunch so that you can have one”.

Think about this. In your mind, I’m sure you have two very different definitions of Love and Charity. List them down. Could be feeling, action, point of view, outcome, choice, giving, how much of giving, when, who, what, how low one stoops, how much patience needed, yada yada yada… I dunno how you want to compare those two words. Anyway! Now comparatively, answer me this “God is -”?

Some of you can say that charity is a quality that comes out of love and all that, which is totally true. But people like the word love and not the word charity! You know, I do see God more as an actions kind of guy.  Not only that, He can be angry, sad, happy, proud, or ashamed of me, but He will still work miracles around me and through me. He still makes sure I’m well and healthy and clothes me and feeds me and allows me to have friends and family. Even when He knows I’m disobeying Him, or when I’m an idiot, or when I’m even trying to run away from Him. What is that? Is that a strong feeling towards me? Or a choice: That I’m His son no matter what.

This is a good reminder for me that love is not a feeling but an action. And it’s not even an action based on an outcome. Love is just an action because of choice: A responsibility. An oath. A sacrifice. A LOSS! A devotion. A hope. Despite everything or anything that has happened or might happen. Wow. “I love you” is now “I choose you” and not “I feel for you,” or “I prefer you the most”. A union in marriage with this kind of love sounds very powerful to me. Same as in family and in friendship.

If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I dole out all my goods to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body so that I may boast, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. 

Love is patient and is kind; love does not envy. Love does not brag, is not proud, doesn’t behave itself inappropriately, does not seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails… But now faith, hope, and love remain-these three. The greatest of these is love.

That sounds pretty different now doesn’t it?
