Ash Wednesday
by. Dolvin ≈ March 8, 2011
Ash Wednesday (also called Holly Wednesday or Spy Wednesday) is the Wednesday of the Holy Week,  the first day of Lent and occurs 46 days (40 days not counting Sundays) before Easter. It is followed by Maundy Thursday (Holy Thursday).
Ash Wednesday
Ash Wednesday derives its name from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of adherents, to symbolize their repentance for wrongdoings, their mortality and their commitment to Jesus and the Almighty. The ashes used are typically gathered after the Palm Crosses from the previous year's Palm Sunday are burned.

This sometimes called as "Spy Wednesday" coz this is indicating the day that Judas Iscariot first conspired with the Sanhedrin to betray Jesus for thirty silver coins.

Actually tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, and this is the first time I take part on it.. hoho..
and will be continue with fasting, fasting is mean that we are permitted to consume only one full meal, which may be supplemented by two smaller meals, which together should not equal the full meal every friday before Easter come.. ^^

Happy Ash Wednesday!

Mathew 6:25
by. Dolvin ≈ June 22, 2009
Don’t be anxious for your life, coz God will take care of you everyday in your life.. This is topic in my church tday ^^

I want to write down the verse.. but maybe I'll write in Bahasa.. coz for me that will be more meaningfull.. hihihihi...

Mathew 6 : 25 - 34

Cross6:25. "Karena itu Aku berkata kepadamu: Janganlah kuatir akan hidupmu, akan apa yang hendak kamu makan atau minum, dan janganlah kuatir pula akan tubuhmu, akan apa yang hendak kamu pakai. Bukankah hidup itu lebih penting dari pada makanan dan tubuh itu lebih penting dari pada pakaian?
6:26 Pandanglah burung-burung di langit, yang tidak menabur dan tidak menuai dan tidak mengumpulkan bekal dalam lumbung, namun diberi makan oleh Bapamu yang di sorga. Bukankah kamu jauh melebihi burung-burung itu?
6:27 Siapakah di antara kamu yang karena kekuatirannya dapat menambahkan sehasta saja pada jalan hidupnya?
6:28 Dan mengapa kamu kuatir akan pakaian? Perhatikanlah bunga bakung di ladang, yang tumbuh tanpa bekerja dan tanpa memintal,
6:29 namun Aku berkata kepadamu: Salomo dalam segala kemegahannyapun tidak berpakaian seindah salah satu dari bunga itu.
6:30 Jadi jika demikian Allah mendandani rumput di ladang, yang hari ini ada dan besok dibuang ke dalam api, tidakkah Ia akan terlebih lagi mendandani kamu, hai orang yang kurang percaya?
6:31 Sebab itu janganlah kamu kuatir dan berkata: Apakah yang akan kami makan? Apakah yang akan kami minum? Apakah yang akan kami pakai?
6:32 Semua itu dicari bangsa-bangsa yang tidak mengenal Allah. Akan tetapi Bapamu yang di sorga tahu, bahwa kamu memerlukan semuanya itu.
6:33 Tetapi carilah dahulu Kerajaan Allah dan kebenarannya, maka semuanya itu akan ditambahkan kepadamu.
6:34 Sebab itu janganlah kamu kuatir akan hari besok, karena hari besok mempunyai kesusahannya sendiri. Kesusahan sehari cukuplah untuk sehari."

Every anxious in your life just will show you how much He loves u.. ^^
don’t be anxious for tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Each day’s own evil is sufficient.. just like we  always said.. Tomorrow problem tomorrow solved.. hihihi...

God is My Shepherd
by. Dolvin ≈ October 5, 2008
"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want." (TUHAN adalah gembalaku, takkan kekurangan aku.) - Mazmur 23:1

Today Hymn of the week at my church is.. "God is my shepherd"..

Psalms 23

1 A psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I have everything I need.

2 He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams.

3 He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name.

4 Even when I walk through the dark valley of death,* I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.1

5 You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You welcome me as a guest, anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.

Here is the song in Bahasa..

Tuhan adalah Gembalaku

Tuhan adalah gembalaku, takkan kekurangan aku
Ia membaringkan aku, di padang yang berumput hijau

Ia membimbingku, ke air yang tenang
Ia menyegarkan jiwaku
Ia menuntunku ke jalan yang benar
Oleh karna namaNya
Sekalipun aku berjalan dalam lembah kekelaman

9 fruits of the Holy Spirit
by. Dolvin ≈ October 1, 2008
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control." (Galatians 5:22)
Fruits of the Holy Spirit
Here are the 9 fruits of the Holy Spirit listed one right after the other in a bullet point format:

1. Love
If I had to rank all of the above fruits in their order of possible importance, the quality of love would have to be #1. And this is why it may have been listed as #1 fruit in the above Scripture verse.

To love, to have affection for someone; to like; to be a friend; the love of brothers for each other
One of the main messages that comes through loud and clear from studying our Bible is the extreme importance that God the Father is placing on that everyone learn how to love Him, love ourselves, love one another, and to even go as far as to be able to love our enemies and those who will try and hurt us.

2. Joy
In the rough and tough world we live in with all of the crime, disorder and bad things that can happen to anyone of us at anytime - many Christians have lost a lot of their joy in the Lord as a result of some of the beatings they have taken in this life.

The joy of the Lord can really give you an incredible surge of strength in your own daily walk with God - especially when you have to take on some really tough situations. This is why each Christian should work very closely with the Holy Spirit in not only getting Him to release His joy into your system, but to keep it running through you on a regular and consistent basis.

3. Peace
This is another major quality that we all need operating in our lives, especially with all of the uncertainty of this life and never knowing what is going to happen next.

4. Longsuffering
One of the main definitions of the word longsuffering is that it is referring to patience. And patience is another sorely needed quality in the fast paced world in which we live in today.

Learn to ride and flow with the patience of the Holy Spirit in your daily life and walk with the Lord - and you will then be able to enter into a much more restful and peaceful state within your mind and emotions.

5. Kindness
As a result of more people being impatient, having short fuses and with everyone always being in a hurry - many people have lost the ability to treat others with kindness and respect. A kind word, a kind action to another person can really do wonders for them.

6. Goodness
The Bible says that it is the goodness of God that will lead sinners to repentance and salvation. The quality of goodness is another real powerful quality to have operating through you.

7. Faithfulness
In the times we live in with half of all marriages still ending up in divorce and with many people getting backstabbed in the workplaces with people they thought they could initially trust - this particular quality is one that is really needed in our day and age. This quality is not only needed in our own personal relationship with God, but it is also needed in our personal relationships with our friends and our families.

8. Gentleness
Many men may draw back a bit from this next fruit, which is the quality of gentleness. Whether some of the liberals like it or not, Jesus was incarnated into a human flesh body - but this incarnation was done as a man - fully man and fully God. He was not incarnated into the body of a woman - no matter how any liberal tries to spin this basic fact, with many liberals trying to make God gender neutral.

9. Self-Control
Last, but not certainly least, is the quality of self-control. This one is huge, and I mean huge! Once you start to enter into a true sanctification process with the Lord - expect the Holy Spirit to move in on you very early with this specific quality.

If you don't have God's self-control operating through you - you will have very little victory over such things as bad tempers, judgmental and critical spirits, an unforgiving spirit, and vices such as smoking and the abuse of alcohol.
