ODB: The Secret is...

1 Corinthians 2:6-16


If you believe Rhonda Byrne, author of the bestselling book The Secret, “The shortcut to anything you want in your life is to be and feel happy now!” According to Byrne, this has to do with something called the law of attraction. If you think only about things that make you happy, she says, happy things will be attracted to you.

Sounds easy enough.

However, the Bible says that “the secret” to life is something very different. It has to do with “the law of the Spirit of life” that sets us free from “the law of sin and death” (Rom. 8:2), not with the “law of attraction.”

According to the apostle Paul, the most important thing to know is “Jesus Christ and Him crucified” (1 Cor. 2:2). To those who are concerned with happiness now, this is indeed foolishness (v.14). They do not recognize the power of God in what appears to them as weakness.

The Lord created us with a desire to know what is secret. In His wisdom, He kept certain things hidden in mystery for a time (v.7). But now, through His Holy Spirit, He has made them known. And the secret He reveals has nothing to do with having happy thoughts in order to obtain happy things; it has to do with having the mind of Jesus Christ (v.16). — Julie Ackerman Link

There is a law that made us free—
In Romans 8 this truth is heard;
The secret is to walk with God
And daily lean upon His Word. —Hess

To know lasting happiness, we must get to know Jesus.


Again, I learn a lot from today's devotion. Hope it gives you more wisdom which comes from Father.

Making The Cut (from Our Daily Bread)

Matthew 4:18-22 (New International Version)

The Calling of the First Disciples
18As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 19"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men." 20At once they left their nets and followed him.

21Going on from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with their father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called them, 22and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.


Every year, high-school seniors apply to their favorite universities and then watch the mailbox for the letter announcing their acceptance.

It was different for teens in New Testament times. Jewish boys would often attend rabbinical schools until age 13. Then only the best and brightest would be chosen to “follow” the local rabbi. This small, select group of disciples would go where he went and eat what he ate—modeling their lives after the rabbi. Those who didn’t make the cut would pick up a trade like carpentry, sheep-herding, or fishing.

Guys like Simon, Andrew, James, and John hadn’t made the cut. So instead of following the local rabbi, they were down by the docks, knee-deep in the family business. It’s interesting that Jesus sought out the men the local rabbi had rejected. Instead of targeting the best and brightest, Jesus offered His invitation, “Follow Me,” to ordinary run-of-the-mill fishermen. What an honor! They would become followers of the ultimate Rabbi.

Jesus extends the same honor to you and me—not because we are the best or brightest, but because He needs ordinary people like us to model His life and to lovingly rescue people on His behalf. So, follow Him and let Him make something of your life! — Joe Stowell

As followers of Jesus
Who love Him from the heart,
We may be ordinary,
But we’ve been set apart. —Sper

Even the ordinary and the outcast can make the cut to follow Jesus.


Hopefully this Daily Bread bless your life as it has blessed mine today!

3 years Anniversary....

Yes... it's been 3 years now my relationship with Deddy. We've been through the best and worst things ever so far, yet, we still can rely that this relationship is strong enough to face those things. I never imagined before that I will have this long relationship.

I thought that this relationship will be like my past relationships, temporary and having fun. However, now after I reflected everything that I have in this relation, I can say that it is love and God who guide us and strengthen us to do more things that we can only do when we are together. Life has been so magical since May 7, 2006 and I learned a lot. I know I will never stop learning and I am excited to see more things happen in this love story, happy or sad. Nobody knows what will happen in the future and where God will bring this relationship. But, one thing that I know, I will always be fine in God's hand.

Well, I had a magical 3 years Anniversary celebration too. I want back from work early on that day, and also Deddy. Then for lunch we went to Paseo again. Yes, we were so addicted to Paseo lately.

Then, we decided not to go ome so early and grabbed a scope of ice cream for each of us from the Seattle famous Molly Moon Ice Cream. I got the "Scount Mint" ( I am a big fans of mint ice cream ^^) and he got the "Vanilla Bean". Both taste so niceeeeeeeeeee.......

Then I had a meeting with my business plan group at 9:30 and we finished at 10:30. After That, to end the 3 years anniversary day celebration, we went to "Wasabi Bistro", our all the time favourite restaurant in Seattle. They had the best sushi in Seattle, plus the happy hour is the best!!!! so far, i can't find other resto that can beat Wasabi Bistro. Here is us with our anniversary cake...

I just want to share how happy I am to have this love story in my life and I am excited to see the continue in my life. Life is an extreme roller coaster... I will never know what I will end up with... but, I am glad with everyting that I have now...

Deddy, Thank you for a lot of things.. thank you for sharing the last of your 3 years with me. I know I am not perfect... but you make me perfect... I hope I can always be a good partner of yours and we can have more wonderful things in front of us...yippie....

love for you all tooooo <3
