It was 1:05 a.m. A friend had just sent me a long message, asking for prayer because she was struggling with physical attraction towards her colleague even though she was already in a committed relationship.
About Joanna Hor
Joanna firmly believes that life is too short to make long-term plans. Everyday, she is learning to cling less tightly to things here and looks forward to the day she will meet her Lord. In the meantime, she tries to live her life to the fullest by enjoying the relationships God has given her, with hopes that those around her will come to know Him too someday. While her likes and dislikes have changed over the years, her love for potato (in any form) remains unchanged.

As much as I enjoyed Song Joong-ki’s portrayal of the polished mafia consigliere, watching Vincenzo torture his enemies even as they pleaded for him to put a bullet through their heads and spare them of the excruciating pain and misery just didn’t sit right.
I remember stepping out of the cinema with a warm and fuzzy feeling, in full agreement with the show’s themes of forgiveness, grace, and even teamwork (how Raya was eventually able to carry out her mission with the help of a group of companions, in contrast to the beginning when she was ploughing on as a lone wolf).
However, as I thought some more about the film’s core message—trusting others will make this world a better place—I wondered if it was a tad too simplistic.
Ever wondered what kind of life you might have if you’re filthy rich? Well, get ready to be dazzled as Netflix’s latest hit show, Bling Empire, shows us exactly what it’d look like.

Living in a digital age means we all have been given access to information like never before, and will find ourselves surrounded by a culture that demands a response from us on issues that affect us—directly or indirectly.
This got me thinking of the following: How should we engage with the news we come across? Is there a biblical response we as believers should adopt?
You’ve been on my lips almost every day, and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you for weeks now. I’ve even been stalking you online—seeing what you’ve been up to lately, following your every move.
Clearly, you’ve captivated me like no other.
If you have been closely following the news about the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak, you would be familiar with the name Dr Li Wen Liang.
Now that I’ve hit my 30s, the reality that I might remain single for the rest of my life, and that life would more or less remain status quo looms over me with each passing year.
On a larger scale, this journey of singleness has taught me three important things about God’s provision and purpose for my life.
