This had been a roller coaster week. Everything seems to be reaching the highest place and came rushing down without a warning! Whoah! I was about to hit the “stop” button but God sat beside me and helped me finish the right. Oh, this moments just melt my heart. The moments when I’m at the edge of a cliff, whether I’m about to step out or whether the softest and weakest wind could push me off into the deepest, there will be God, always to the rescue, pulling me off and showing me His unending love. The thought of this is more the enough to be the reason why, once again, I love to fill my lungs with air and carry on!
“That is why I need some time… And it is also why you need the same.”
“So, I’m going to give you that space and promise not to pursue you until God has made it clear that you are in the right season in your faith.”
“Do not worry into love because being joined with a person out of season is one of the most painful things someone can experience.”
“Which is why we must join together in patience, even though we are apart.”
“Here is what we are working towards and the third thing I need you to know: God has asked me to be so much like Christ that you are able to submit to me as unto Him (Ephesians 5:22-33)”
“But when God gives me a peace about the continual growth of my own faith, I will know and I’ll be obedient to pursue you. And you will know that it is me because I will respectfully, tactfully, and politely pursue you with very clear intentions. ”
“know that it’s me because I’ll be respectful and not flirting with you via text. Know that it’s me because I’ll be clear that I’m asking you on a date and won’t create an atmosphere where you have to question what we are doing or where we stand. Know that it’s me because when we are dating, I’ll not only be respectful of your emotional and physical boundaries, but also have some of my own. And know that it’s me because I’ll be more interested in your faith and what your relationship with Jesus looks like than being romantic and creating surface level connections.”
“So join with me in individually submitting to God…Even if that means that there actually isn’t a Mr. or Mrs. Right waiting for us… Can we be ok with that? Can we trust God and be okay with whatever the outcome, knowing that we have already received all we need in His Son?”
THINKING AND PRAYING FOR YOU ❤
Dear daughters of God,
Contrary to what you have heard, I do exist. I’m no fairytale hunk with big muscles and thing for chick flicks (although, I may or may not have a man bun). So, put your daydreams of love off to the side for a minute and let me tell you what makes me, “Mr. Right” and why people keep telling you to wait for me.
The first thing I really want for you to understand is that I was not born your Mr. Right. I promise we weren’t destined to cross paths and lock eyes from across a crowded room and fall hopelessly in love. God has been working in my heart for YEARS! Do you realize what was in my heart before Christ saved me?! Of course you don’t because we haven’t met yet, but I can promise you it is equally as crazy and sinful as…

This is something foreign to my body as I don’t easily catch a fever. I always thought that my immune system is an unbeatable army, of course, because of God’s grace! But today, my system was invaded by an alien trying to weaken my defense. In this season, I could not afford to loose any battle against my preliminary examinations, where I need to face four major subjects and two minor subjects. But I know no giants nor aliens can hinder me from winning this fight, praising the King of Kings and glorifying His name!
Victory has won! Jesus is my healer!
I always wonder why memories produce pain.
A dagger swimming to my deepest vein.
“I don’t miss you, nor will I ever ” is a lie.
But this need to move on, I cannot deny.
We once shared stories, not skipping a thing.
Talked about life, dreams, almost everything.
Leaving no trace of you, I thought I’m okay.
But, no I wasn’t, after seeing you yesterday.
Who’s to blame is not anymore the question.
Nor I am begging for a slice of your attention.
You see, I have tons of papers piled up in my table.
But you’re filling up my mind, how will I be able?
I know I can do nothing with this poor situation.
But to accept and move on to the right direction.
Entrusting the broken pieces of my heart to the Creator.
I breathed out, uttered a prayer and grabbed my paper.
A single music can set up a mood
A single cake can make you feel good
A single book can change a point of view
And it takes a single “yes” to change the entire you.
A simple “yes” can bind two lovers
A simple smile can change the lives of others
Because a single thing no matter how simple
With God, turns out to be incredible.
I am not really into reading novels, not until I had no one to talk to, nowhere to go and nothing to do because of the continuous rain fall. This is SUPER WEIRD because after being hooked up by this novel, I was able to finish it in 3 days!! But of course, thanks to class suspension, I don’t need to go to my class which gave me ample time to read. It is so unusual because I am known as someone who have a hard time finishing something. So, yeah, here I am being so happy finishing something and looking forward to another book. I never thought that this could be this fulfilling! And as a tradition whenever I finish something, I am treating myself out!! I am excited to grab my favorite treat – SWEETS!
3 DAYS CLASS SUSPENSION. It’s a three days straight that classes in our city, or I should say our region, is cancelled due to heavy rains. To some of my fellow students, it is bad news because it’s a “no allowance days” (No “baon” days), no lesson day (but I think majority rejoices because of this. Haha). And it’s undeniable that this is a very great news to most of the students! I am waving my saying, “I’m in!! I belong to this group! I’m in! I’m in!” But unlike most of them who thought of this as a time to loaf, to be on a social media 24hours a day, to hang around all night or to watch all day, I see this as an opportunity to be lost in a clearly illustrated setting of a novel, to look and walk through one’s story, to think of the thoughts I seldom thought of and to write. Here’s a poem I came up because of the gloomy season.
