My Photo

Really an amazing life. Loving family, great best friends and real true friends, buddies from the other nations, enough foods and money, perfect healthy, and big destiny. What else? He gives me everything the best for me. Do you know Jesus?

be strong and courageous

"Remember the last time you needed help? Not just help with your homework, but HELP. You were at the end of your rope, no more options; you'd done everything and nothing worked. You were confused, afraid, and lonely all at the same time. What do you do when the answers just don't seem to come? Joshua 1:9. God gives two positive commands here - be strong and courageous! Don't be afraid. And then, the promise, "Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” That promise gives you strength to obey the two commands. You can rest in the fact that God promises to help. You are not alone. You may not get help at the exact second you think you need it. But He will help you. He knows exactly how much you can take. He'll be right on time."

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go - Joshua 1:9

This is the EXACT thing I needed.
So, on the 29th November I'm going to booked a ticket for my flight. There's a special price there, an extra flight. I saw that since the 25th maybe. and on the 26th, I'm going to my bank account and transfer my money to my dad's credit card *to book can only use a credit card*. I paid. Then when I arrived home, Daddy just told me that it will take 2 days. so I waited. And my Dad checked it to his credit card on the 29th. he told me that's there. so I go online to booked. I filled all the application. and paid. But.. there's something wrong. the status is: credit card status declined. it's was in "my manage booked". I was shocked. and suddenly *to make it short*, it's not there anymore, on the "my manage booked". so I think, maybe I should do it once more. then I tried. but.. suprised!! the price is getting high (This is crazy!! just in a seconds!!). And i felt like, hopeless. like it's says: you'd done everything and nothing worked. I almost tried, everything!! online just to know the prices. almost every airlines i checked. go to the travel agent. asking prices. but, nothing worked. I get down and stressful about this flight things, honest. I have enough money to book anyway. but I just think that, God want me to wait. it's not the right flight. it's not the right price you need to pay. wait and hold on, Tirza.
so I go to my bed room, start praying and praying (the only thing that you can do when you get down is praying, trust me). God didn't say anything to me. so I walk out. I'm online again, searched for some flights. and put this on my blackberry messenger status: God, help..
and this is silly :p someone just tagged a photo of me. and we just chat there. there's 4 people there *who put their comments on that photo. silly conversation. jokes and jokes. and suddenly it get to a really silly joke. about: "hold on! God is the one who knows you!!", "God really do loves you!!". and me, suddenly, without thinking: "be strong and courageous!!" *it is a famous verse, isn't it? and suddenly like, woops. I think thats for me. and I can't stop thinking about that verse, all night long. it's around 12AM. I can't stop thinking. so I grab my bible *that one from Joy*, there's an explanation bellow the verse. and I got the thing that I exactly need. God is working with jokes :)
