About Huey Nin
Huey Nin loves words and what they can do. She believes words can bring healing and encouragement, and above all, share the good news of Jesus and the truth of God’s love. She is Malaysian truly Asian and looks forward to returning home after a few more years of growth in Sydney. A good book, bonding with family, and a conversation over tea are her ABCs of a day well spent.
Entries by Huey Nin
With teary eyes and never-let-me-go hugs, my good friend sniffed and said her farewell as she packed her bags. “Come find me when you visit! But even if not, I will see you in heaven—with Jesus!”
Though that sounded morbid at the time, her words struck a chord within me.
A hope and a wish are two very different things. And yet, I catch myself using the two words interchangeably: “How I wish the pandemic would end”, “I hope the vaccines work so there won’t be another lockdown.”
Whether we are in a spiritual oasis or crossing a dry, desert land, let’s draw near to God, and to each other. Learn some ways we can practice Christian self-care.
YMI (which stands for Why Am I?), is a platform for Christian young people all over the world to ask questions about life and discover their true purpose. We are a community with different talents but the same desire to make sense of God’s life-changing word in our everyday lives.
YMI is a part of Our Daily Bread Ministries.
