"I can’t just walk away from someone who makes me feel like you do, ma fleur." A text message I opened in the morning, when the sun is warm and the days are sublime.
"I believe in a God of scandalous grace. If I believed terrorists were beyond redemption, I would need to rip out half of my New Testament Scriptures, for they were written by a converted terrorist.
I have pledged allegiance to a King who loved evildoers so much he died for them, teaching us that there is something worth dying for but nothing worth killing for. While terrorists were nailing him to the cross, my Jesus pleaded that they be shown mercy, for they knew not what they were doing. We are all wretched, and we are all beautiful. No one is beyond redemption. May we see in the hands of the oppressors our own hands, and in the faces of the oppressed our own faces. We are made of the same dust, and we cry the same salty tears."

"It’s as if God is the only source of light in this universe. As long as you avoid Him, you’ll always be going from dark place to dark place, shadow to shadow." (via peterdwebb)

"Satan tells me I am unworthy; but I always was unworthy, and yet You have long loved me; and therefore my unworthiness cannot be a barrier to having fellowship with You now." Charles Spurgeon (via laurarbenson)

I am held back by so many things, and you refuse to be held back by anything. You’ve always loved broken people, and at three a.m., when you told me you love me, your olive eyes saw all of who I am in my darkest glory.

You still think I’m worth it, and maybe, just maybe, that’s all I wanted to be.

"I am
a series of
small victories
and large defeats
and I am as
amazed
as any other
that
I have gotten
from there to
here…"

"Someday, someone is going to look at you with a light in their eyes you’ve never seen, they’ll look at you like you’re everything they’ve been looking for their entire lives. Wait for it." (via 1112pm)

"

To my friends: I want to apologise for those times when I said I would pray for you and I didn’t. The times that you asked to have coffee, and I was too ‘busy’. The moments that I could’ve asked you how you were doing; but I didn’t because I was afraid of your answer. When I wasn’t the friend that you needed me to be.

To my family: I’m sorry for the times I yelled back at you in anger, when you were doing the best you could. For the moments when I didn’t give you a chance to explain, when I brushed off your expressions of love for me. I’m sorry for not taking the time to try to answer your questions about this God that I know.

To my acquaintances and the people I pass on the street: I’m sorry for turning away, for rushing past and trying not to see your brokenness. I’m sorry for the stares, and the judgements I formed, even though we’ve never met.

I’m sorry for the times when I’ve said, verbally or not; ‘I’m Christian’ but I haven’t acted that way. I’m sorry for not loving, forgiving, and serving you the way that He does me.

I’m just like you, a sinner, with struggles and faults, I’m sorry for ever holding myself above.

His grace and mercy are the only reasons I’m still here, asking for your forgiveness, saying that I’m a sinner and I’m starting fresh, trying each day, not to say that ‘I’m Christian’, but to love, serve and forgive like Christ has done to me.

He means it!
i-am-loved-by-the-king

He asked me
why I was up
till 2 on a
Sunday when
I had to work
the next day,
and I said
“It happens.”

I didn’t tell him
that I was waiting
for his good night.

Saved by His grace.

Hello there, stranger!
Jane. Filipina. Los Angeles, CA

This blog will be mostly about who God is in my life, but I will be posting random stuff as well. You can check my prose and poetry to see who I used to be. But now, I am fierce of lover of Jesus Christ. I draw my strength from His faithfulness, my peace from His love and my identity from His grace.
John 3:30
