Hanaya, if you love Me, raise the bar
Stop compromising. Jesus is saying it’s time to raise the bar.
Hanaya: Lord, I wait for You. I watch for what you will say to me. Where do I need to be corrected? Give me eyes that see and ears that hear, the grace to love you back, to love what you love, and to hate what you hate. Many don’t care how You feel. But I want to live and represent you rightly in a world of increasing ungodliness and declining moral clarity.
Listen to how Jesus responds and mentors Hanaya.
Hanaya & Yuri: So, how do we live?
So, how do we live in times of increasing uncertainties and shaking?
What are we afraid of?
Two high school girls Hanaya and Yuri glance at the current state of the world, the uncertainties, the shaking, and make a conclusion of defiant hope.
There’s an antidote to fear and anxiety. You can cultivate a state of mind conditioned by God’s narrative, not by the calendar of the world, the current affairs, your circumstances, or the facts, no matter how dark and gloomy it looks.
Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light. See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
— Ephesians 5:14-17
Hanaya: The door is about to open
Don’t quit yet. Endure the contradiction. Don’t hold on to things and relationships because of the fear of the unknown. It’s time to let go of your own preferences. Get in alignment with God’s agenda for your new assignment. Discern the next step. By faith move out of the previous season, even without clearly seeing what is ahead. The door is about to open. But you cannot continue being the same you for the new. Get ready!
Be encouraged and filled with hopeful expectations as you listen to Hanaya’s resolve as she discerns the new season ahead.

Yuri: Lord, they say I look pretty
In a world where many feel valued by showcasing physical attractiveness or revealing sexiness as an empowering act, young Yuri has a different priority.
Hanaya: Return me to innocence
The world is full of many traps and distractions, all meant to defile and rob us of our innocence, intimacy, and purity of devotion to Jesus.
Let Hanaya’s prayer be your heart cry to the Lord.
Yuri: Hanaya, what’s the meaning of life?
Two high school girls, Hanaya and Yuri, dig deep to uncover the big question of life: Why are we here?
Curious? Eavesdrop on their conversation. I bet you haven’t heard this version before. This is the narrative that God wants you to know and understand.
Hanaya: Yuri, You Can Have a Fresh Start
You made plans and tried to make it happen, but it’s going nowhere. You trusted some people, but then they showed their true colors. Do you find yourself in a similar place in life now?
The sooner you come to the end of yourself, the better. Listen to Hanaya encouraging a frustrated Yuri to start afresh.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways submit to Him, and He shall direct your paths.
— Proverbs 3:5-6

Are you living to please yourself and others?
You were bought at a price for Jesus and His purposes. Once you were in darkness, but now you are in the light.

He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

Hanaya: Someone’s Got to Go
Is God nudging your heart to step out and do something? What nation or group is highlighted in your heart for missions? Or what social, cultural, or moral issues bother you? Maybe you sense a calling to do something in the seven mountains of societal influence; family, religion, education, media, arts and entertainment, business, and government. It’s time to step out!
Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?
— Isaiah 6:8
We have many settlers, so few goers. Courage isn’t the absence of fear; rather, it’s making a brave choice in spite of fear.
Be inspired and stirred up as you listen to Hanaya’s resolve as she reflects on God’s calling to go.
Hanaya: God’s Special Forces
Both the light and darkness are coming to full maturity in these times, and so evil is also mobilizing for the last battle.
But God has saved the best for the last.
There’s an invitation from the Lord to be enlisted in His special forces. But it is your choice. The army of the Lord is a volunteer army. If you are called to be a part of this, it is time to find your place.
Hanaya contemplates being one of God’s end-time special forces recruits. Be challenged, encouraged, and stirred up as you listen to her resolve.
The people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.
– Daniel 11:32
And valiant men went with him, whose hearts God had touched.
— 1 Samuel 10:26
The last great and coming move of God will be a ‘grassroots’ movement, a movement of the “nameless, faceless” saints – not superstars. These will not be self-seeking or self-promoting, and most of them will remain unknown to the world—even to much of the Church.
Hanaya: Seekers will be Finders
Do you know God or do you know about Him? You were created to experience an intimate relationship with God. He wants you to seek Him. How far are you willing to go? Are you ready to take the road less traveled?
Hanaya contemplates what people are missing out on.
The Lord looks down from heaven, to see, if there are any who understand, who seek Him. He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
— The Bible
To fall in love with God is the greatest of all romances; to seek Him, the greatest adventure; to find Him, the greatest human achievement.
— Saint Augustine of Hippo | Theologian and philosopher

Whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
— Luke 9:26
When the whole world is running towards the edge of a cliff, he who runs in the opposite direction seems to have lost his mind.
— C.S. Lewis
