A little about me...
My name is Kim Yeung.
I'm from the San Francisco Bay Area and graduated from Pepperdine in 2020 with a B.A in Religion. I am pursuing a mix of church ministry and business. Aside from my faith and school, my life consists of eating dessert, anything Disney, walks in nature, and reading a good book. I am using this as a platform to share and hopefully encourage teenagers and young adults as we discover life and faith together.
About Wind Words...
The name "Wind Words" is scripturally inspired from the book of Revelation. In this, John writes to the seven churches of Asia Minor reminding all who are capable of listening to be aware and extra sensitive to what the Holy Spirit says.
“Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.” Rev 2:7 NIV
In the Message version it says “ Listen to the Wind Words, the Spirit blowing through the churches.”
I think one common challenge of faith is learning to be a listener. Most of my faith journey thus far has been built on expressing my needs and desires to God in the form of prayer. Every night before falling asleep, my prayers were built mostly on asking for various requests. But I’ve found that the key to really taking my faith to the next level, is trading the amount of time I used to ask for to listen to what God is saying to me. I can’t think of a better way to express this than the well known prayer of American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr, “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.” To live this prayer out is to listen to the Holy Spirit and discern what is ours to take up the load for and what isn’t.
That being said, Wind Words is for encouraging teenage and young adult ladies as they discover their God designed calling through life talk, the simple pleasures in life, and biblical wisdom. My hope and prayer is that you are inspired to pursue grace and truth.
