There is no shortage of heresies these days.
If you want to adopt some blasphemous, perverted, fun house mirror reflection of Christianity, you will find a veritable buffet of options. You can sift through all the…
You’ll find that it’s hard to continue hating someone if you started praying for them every day.
This morning, I reached the bus stop late, and I knew from then that I would probably end up late for work. I could feel the profanities brewing from the back of my tongue, and I was just so exasperated at everything.
But I chose Jesus. So I turned on my Celebrating Jesus playlist on Spotify, and smiled throughout the way. I still ended up being late for work, but my heart was glad, and I felt blessed more than ever.
Worshiping God by choice, and not by circumstances, do not only give glory to Him. It also helped me keep my life in perspective, and remember that He is bigger than anything on this earth.
I will write about the following. Leave one in my ask box:
Dear person I hate,
Dear person I like,
Dear ex boyfriend,
Dear ex girlfriend,
Dear ex bestfriend,
Dear future me,
Dear past me,
Dear person I’m jealous of,
Dear person I had a crush on,
Dear [future] girlfriend,
Dear [future] boyfriend,
I couldn’t be more thankful to God for bringing my family and I to a city that has so much to offer. I love Davao, but Los Angeles definitely stole a piece of my heart. What are your favorite hangouts in your area?
Waiting for the Lord’s timing means
understanding that I need nothing
but my relationship with Him.
You see, I’ve been bogged down by
the man I want to marry, coveting
godly men when God hasn’t
prepared them for me.
I wasn’t really waiting in Jesus.
I was waiting for the perfect man
to sweep me off my feet so
I can claim we found each other
through our intimacy with Him.
In the middle of my illusion,
God opened my eyes to
reveal my own deception.
I was too focused on me,
and on “the one” that
I’ve completely lost track
of God’s redemption.
He’s not just a husband-giver,
blessing-doler, healer & comforter.
He’s the Savior, our Savior, my Savior.
He’s the Messiah, the Lord of all.
So I fall on my knees and ask
for forgiveness, for worshipping
the wrong ‘god’ in the middle
of my singleness. I pray that He
lets my life reflect His glory, & that
my heart pursues His will only.

I’m thankful to God for reminding me that I can always come to Him and trade in my exhaustion for His rejuvenation. I know that even though I am at war with the world & my flesh, He will bring order to my day and establish my priorities according to His will. There is nothing on earth that can ever surpass who Jesus is—-not now, not ever! And I am consumed with His love and the Spirit-led life He wants me to live.
When God decides I’m ready,
He will allow my path to intertwine
with the man He has chosen.
When a man is so lost in Jesus that
constellations are written on his skin,
spelling God’s name, I will love him dearly.
I will be his second priority after God,
but I believe it’s the best place to be.
When a man pursues my heart,
he knows it’s buried deeply in God.
He wouldn’t have found me otherwise.
When a man’s soul leads in maintaining
sexual purity instead of merely following
what I have to say, he is God’s gift
for waiting patiently in His own timing.
It’s easy to pave my own path, and
write my own love story when society
tells me that singles should hurry.
But I trust in the Lord’s timing for His
plans are better than everything.
