Melalui tulisan ini, saya ingin memberikan sedikit panduan buat teman – teman yang sedang menyelesaikan aplikasi esai melamar beasiswa, baik untuk sebuah degree atau pun exchange program. Saya coba untuk memberikan panduan sesederhana mungkin, mencoba menghindari terminologi ilmiah yang bisa memusingkan. Langsung saja ya.

Ditulisan ini akan dibahas tentang bagaimana menulis satu esai dalam aplikasi beasiswa LPDP, yaitu tentang Kontribusiku bagi Indonesia.

Begini. Menulis itu yang sulit adalah menulis dengan organisasi yang baik. Tidak bertele – tele kesana kemari, tapi to the point langsung menjawab pertanyaan atau langsung memberikan informasi sesuai dengan instruksi yang diberikan untuk esai tersebut.

Saya sudah banyak membantu mengoreksi tulisan esai teman – teman yang ingin melamar beasiswa.

The Living Stone

This written was inspired by preaching which presented by a priest in the church  on last December 2014.

– The Living Stone –

Ok before we talk further about that. I wanna ask you.

What is life? and

What is Stone?

What is life?

People said that life starts  from B to D. From Birth to Death,

but what’s between B and D?

It’s a “C” So what is “C”?

It’s a choice

Our life is a matter of choices.

In my point of view, life is learning.

Learning to love even though it hurts,

Learning to forgive even though it gives the permanent scar,

Learning to be patient in waiting the uncertain thing,

Learning to build the trust,

Learning to through the process even though in  difficult,painful, and hard times.

Learning, learning and learning !!!

When you stop learning it means that you are die.

And what is stone?

For me stone is the powerful and hard object.

So, Why does God depict us that We are the living stone?

It is because stone is like something that dirty, useless, unimportant, everyone can throw it away, tread  and humiliate it. Stone is like human. Without God we are weak, sinful, dirty, useless, shameful.etc.

But, it is totally change in (John 3 : 16)

“For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten ( unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.”

So, because of God’s grace  the sinful, dirty, weak, useless, shameful person has been changed into the loved, beloved, strong, useful, and important person.

In God’s hand our life will be better and better.

“Don’t fear, for I am with you. don’t be dismayed, because I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you;

I will uphold you in My righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10)

So, never think that your life is too hard, no solution for your problems, and empty.

CHANGE YOUR MIND !

Remember in God’s hand everything will be ok.

YOU CAN do ANYTHING through God who strengthens YOU !

 

 

with much love,

-YLT-
