To me, what made Lupin so interesting was the titular character, Assane Diop (played by French actor Omar Sy), and how he outwitted the people around him at every turn. Whenever I watch shows like this, I’m always vaguely amused (and bemused) by how eagerly I root for the protagonists, even when they’re supposed to be the “bad guys”.
About Jane Lim
Jane likes to think of herself as a reader first, though a picky one at that. Thanks to grad school, she’s transitioned from fiction to nonfiction, though these days it’s long essays by eloquent writers that she most relishes. Through the ups and downs in life, she’s experienced and continues to experience the restorative power of words (and the Word). She hopes to get to work with more Christian writers and publishers and is very thankful to have become part of YMI.

I was sitting in the car, on my way to meet my church group, when I began thinking about this question: “Who is Jesus to me?” Our church group was about to start a “Back to Basics” study series, and it made me realise how everything I’ve learned and believe in as a Christian all goes back to Jesus. But in that moment, as I thought about what Jesus meant to me personally, I was drawing a blank.
I will admit that there are times when reading Bible verses doesn’t make me feel better; when everything feels dry and I am weary.
And yet, I find that prayer is the very place for this struggle, this weariness.
Do you ever pray with reservations? It goes like this: you ask God for something, but you’re not sure if He’ll give it; so you still pray but you’re not holding your breath, because you don’t want to get your hopes up.
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.
