Psalm 69:30

But I am poor and sorrowful; Let your salvation, O God, set me up on high. I will praise the name of God with a song, And will magnify Him with thanksgiving. This also shall please the Lord better than an ox or bull, Which has horns and hooves. The humble shall see this and be glad; And you who seek God, your hearts shall live. - Psalm 69:29-32

Psalm 46:10

“Be still, and know that I am God.” - Psalm 46:10

Be still, my soul:
the Lord is on thy side.
Bear patiently
the cross of grief or pain.
Leave to thy God
to order and provide;
In every change,
He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul:

thy best, thy heavenly Friend

Through thorny ways

leads to a joyful end.
Be still, my soul:

thy God doth undertake

To guide the future,

as He has the past.

Thy hope, thy confidence

let nothing shake;

All now mysterious

shall be bright at last.

My Grandmother

(From Angels)

My grandmother recently passed away peacefully with my family around her singing her favorite hymns.

Though I never had any deep conversations with her due to her quiet nature and a language barrier, she inspired me in the most moving ways. I want to share one story:

It was when I was visiting her in the hospital with my mom. She was having urinary problems, so we had to repeatedly assist her to use the restroom. She also had trouble using her hands, so we had to hand feed her the porridge my mom brought for her. To me, she appeared so weak and helpless in the hospital room. But as soon as we tucked her in after she finished the porridge and made one more visit to the restroom, she sighed and said, "I'm so happy! Thank you God!" Then she started singing praises.

I was so shocked and surprised by what she said. Here I was, complaining earlier that day about petty things in my life while my grandma, in her ill state was able to joyfully sing and give thanks to God.

My grandma was never short on smiles, she was always giving away delicious food she made, so full of love, and her faith...inspiring.

Proverbs 12:25

Anxiety in a man's heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad. - Proverbs 12:25

So true! Sometimes, even a small word of encouragement makes all the difference.

The Hill Event

The Hill event hosted by INHERITANCE Magazine was...amazing. It was such a blessing to participate in an event with other groups and individuals with the unified purpose of glorifying God and shining His light. I am so thankful to have had this opportunity to participate in The Hill, and for all the encouraging comments Little Seed received - they mean so much. Thank you!!

Little Seed's booth!
The sweet booth next to Little Seed's was kujo, a headband based shop.
It was also so good to see familiar faces again,
like Mike from The Nehemiah Band,
Brandon Bae (who covered Faith of a Little Seed), Key Kim, Bryan Kim
Thank you Katherine for helping me manage Little Seed's booth!
The Nameless (who was also featured in this post)
I think we were all in the same design class at one point at USC.
Fight on!

The Hill event definitely was an answered prayer. Thank you INHERITANCE Magazine for hosting such a great event! The official event photos can be viewed here.

Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. - Hebrews 11:1

Often times we hear, "you just need faith," and "it's all about the heart." But that made me wonder, what does it mean to have faith? Hebrews 11:1 and a study note for Romans 4:13-25 (Abraham's faith) gives this description: "Faith is total surrender to the ability and willingness of God to carry out His promises."
