As per today, the COVID-19 pandemic already affected 213 countries, almost 21 million people, and has taken more than 750k lives.

My condolences and deepest sympathy for them.


Heavenly Father sent
the Son into the world.
God sent Jesus.

Without Him having sent Jesus,
we would not be able to see God.
He is in closest relationship with the Father,
if you’ve seen Jesus,
you’ve seen the Father.

Without Him having sent Jesus,
we would doubt God’s love.
we would question God’s
goodness and care,
we might consider God is unfair.
In the works that He did,
and the death that He died,
Jesus revealed God’s love.

Without Him having sent Jesus,
we would be forever Fatherless.
Jesus showed us,
we can approach God
as a child approaches her Father.

Jesus offered the perfect sacrifice,
once for all time.
With the shedding of His blood
on the cross.

When God sent Jesus into the world,
the Son of God took on human flesh
and provided a perfect sacrifice for sin,
and a perfect covenant with us.

When God sent Jesus into the world,
He was not helping us forget about our sins.
He forgave our sins,
and released us from their penalty.
Through faith in the Son,
we have full deliverance from guilt.
True salvation,
and real peace with God.

When God sent Jesus into the world,
He handled temptations,
He did so without sin,
He lived blamelessly,
being holy in word and holy deeds
He nurtured a prayer life and
relied on the power of the Holy Spirit

When God sent Jesus into the world,
We are eternally grateful,
at the end of His misery,
was able to look to Heaven and say,
I have brought You glory on earth,
by finishing the work You gave me to do.
Mission accomplished.


Love is patient to you and I,
love is kind to you and I,
It does not envy you and I,
it does not boast to you and I,
it is not proud to you and I,
It is not rude to you and I,
it is not self-seeking to you and I,
it is not easily angered to you and I,
it keeps no record of wrongs of you and I.

Love does not delight in evil in you and I,
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects,
always trusts, always hopes,
always perseveres.
Love never fails us.

For God so loved you and I,
that He gave His one and only Son,
that whoever believes in Jesus Christ
shall not perish
but have eternal life.

Christ demonstrates
His own love for us in this,
While we were still sinners,
He died for us.

It’s God’s greatest desire,
that we join Him in His eternal home, Heaven.
He has made the way possible
by paying the price for our sins.
He loves us,
because He chose us,
as an act of His will.

Love forgives.
If we confess our sins,
He is faithful and just
and will forgive us our sins and purify us
from all unrighteousness.

Love is an attribute of God.
Love is a core aspect of God’s character,
God’s love is in no sense in conflict
with His holiness, righteousness,
justice, and even His wrath.
They all are in perfect harmony.
Everything God does is loving,

God is the true love.
God has given those
who receive His Son Jesus,
as their personal Savior,
the ability to love as He does,
through the power of the Holy Spirit.


everyone has ears,
but only a few are listening and responding. Not everyone who hears the gospel,
receives it.
Many have hearing,
but there is no interest,
towards God.
Many are called or invited into the kingdom, but no-one is able to come on their own.

There is mystery,
God works faith in us,
we are then enabled to freely choose Him.
Some identify this as regeneration preceding faith.
God changes us, regenerates us,
enables us to freely choose God.
An analogy can be found in the lightbulb.
Electricity is in the lightbulb,
light is the result.
But it is not the case
that electricity is the result of light.
Likewise in salvation,
when regeneration is present,
faith and love are the result.

when people ask,
whether or not we choose God
or God chooses us,
there is a sense in which both are true,
because God chooses us for salvation,
and He enables us to choose Him.

“We love because he first loved us.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:19‬ ‭ESV‬‬

3 Years 4 months Post Biopsy
Pontine Glioblastoma/DIPG Grade IV

This is Tobias speaking. I am publishing this last prayer from Titien on her behalf. She is sleeping a lot these days. We had some complications with her infected feeding tube, but it seems to be getting better now with antibiotics and after one of the abscesses opened.

Titien cannot swallow food anymore so she is taking in less calories than her body consumes. I supplement water through her feeding tube.

She is very strong mentally though and last night giggled a lot after realizing she could make bubbles in her glass by blowing into rather than sucking on the straw.

Titien is sleeping a lot. This is her this morning on our sofa
Friends sent us flowers.

    Tobias, I do admire your steadfastness, loyalty and dedication to your love.
    Blessings to both of you.❤️

  2. Tobias, Titien,
    We met about 3 and a half years ago. It was you, Tobias, our friend from Cardiff times, who introduced you, Titien, to me and a couple of friends next to Heidelberg. We did not have a lot of time to talk. Shortly after I learned about Titien’s bad diagnosis and about a few months ago about your blog .
    Please know, both of you, that I and also Sandra and Alex think often about you and we talk about you in admiration. How both of you deal with live and love is touching us a lot!
    Many, many kisses

    1. Hi Joyce,
      just to clarify: this is still an article Titien had pre-written but not published yet. I added the “update about myself” section and the captions to the photos.

  5. Dear beautiful Titien
    Your earthly suffering will be over soon, and you will enter into the kingdom of heaven, where you will one day be re-united with Tobias and all other people you love and who love you.

    “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men,
    and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
    And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;
    and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain:
    for the former things are passed away.”
    Revelation, Chapter 21, 3-4

    I’m with you and Tobias in profound sorrow but also in the belief in eternal salvation .

    Love, boundless admiration and deep gratitude

  7. Thinking a lot about Titien lately. She used to share her blog in our whatsapp group. I’ve always eagerly waiting her writing. It is more than a week that she didn’t share her blog in the group. Thank you for the updates. Please tell her that I love her and always keep you both in our prayer. I also ask your permission to share this writing in our group.

    Love in Christ,
