I Honor. – A Challenge to Myself

You can use it to empower
You can abuse it to dismantle
It is a fine line yet a huge difference

The key to empowerment
Does it lie in education or financial support
Or is it more of an inner characteristic
A value of how we treat others
The selfless act of honor?

Honor doesn’t ask for authorization
Honor doesn’t say I have power, you don’t
Honor doesn’t request perfection

More than anything

No matter what – no regrets

When I was 18, I reflected on my life. I realized that I was not living the life God designed me to live. Even though I had been a Christian for many years, I never shared about God to my friends. I was ashamed of my faith, afraid that people would laugh at me. It has happened before. I asked God to show me for what he wanted to use me. I felt like there is more purpose somewhere. SOMEWHERE OUT THERE.

It’s invisible.

But if you have it,
from the inside out,
you glow,
you shine,
you radiate.

Not much is needed though
and …
it’s gone.
Inside, it’s dark.
Around you, it’s dark.

I wonder.

I wonder when the day comes when we stop hating each other. Stop judging each other. Stop blaming each other. Stop complaining about each other. Stop correcting each other.



I wonder when the day comes when we start encouraging each other. Helping each other. Blessing each other. Forgiving each other. Elevating each other.

No matter what.

“I believe life is all about choices, and we can choose to cooperate with the words of death and sickness spoken over our lives, or we can choose to rise above them.”

14.-16.04.2015 – Happy Khmer New Year


May today there be peace within. May you trust
that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are
born of faith in yourself & others. May you use the
gifts that you have received & pass on the love that
has been given to you. May you be content with
yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge
settle into your bones & allow your soul the
freedom to sing, dance, praise & love.

Gifts, Grace and Glamour

Christmas. In many countries an annual public holiday which closes the Advent season. Celebrated culturally by a large number of non-Christian and Christian people. Takes place mostly at the end of December, sometimes in January. Stands for gifts, family meetings, delicious food. There is the traditional Christmas tree and other sometimes beautiful, sometimes overdone decoration. It’s all about lights, bling-bling, candles. The radio would play Christmas songs for several weeks long. Children would recite a poem and receive presents. Mothers would bake cookies and create gingerbread houses. Like every year, son James would try to steal some dough. Like every year, grandmother Anna would bring some self-made socks. Like every year, uncle Sam would play the Santa Claus with a white beard and deep voice. Same same, but different. Every year a few days long. That’s it.

That’s it? Really? That’s all what Christmas is about? Just like another feast? Is it all about gifts, gatherings and glamour?

Life is like a camera: Focus on what is important. Capture the good times. Develop from the negatives. And if things don’t work out, take another shot.

When you get saved, it is not a transaction. It is a birth because God wants to make sure, everybody has a dad.

You are nominated!

This video was originally for a game on facebook. You get nominated by someone and have to jump into cold, public water within 48h.

In fact, you can apply it to my life as well. God nominated me for a mission in Cambodia. I didn’t hesitate long to decide that I will follow his call. The decision has a huge effect: It doesn’t only mean that I’ll leave Switzerland, but also my comfort zone. That includes things like: family & friends, my cat & dog, a good & secure job & income, a safe & clean country, a familiar culture, many luxuries you have living in Switzerland, and so on…
