In every season

Being in love with the idea of falling in love is illusory. Instead of setting yourself up for heartaches thinking another person can fill you up, be the right person in every season. So that when the time comes for God to honor your patience, you’ll be found ready. Don’t let your emotions get the best of you and cause you to settle for less. You are complete. You are valued. Remember that things happen to people at different times for a purpose. And know that in every season, Someone loves you and pursues you relentlessly.

And like I can’t force the sun to rise or hasten summer’s start,

neither should I rush my way into your heart

Hiatus-ing

Dear Blog,

You are alive! You’re not dead. Apparently, your promise to have at-least-one-post-every-month goal failed. Classic! But, hey! That is totally fine. I know you’re still there – trying to keep your chaotic self alive and breathing; waiting for the resurrection of your creative juices that often seem to be hibernating. I have so much faith in you, y’know? You’ll be amazed to know your endless possibilities. Just don’t let anything get in the way of our love. I will be here sitting patiently when you come around.

With hopes and dreams and lots of love,

“It’s funny because when you’re a child, you believe you can be anything you want to be, go wherever you want to go. There’s no limit to what you can dream. You expect the unexpected, you believe in magic, in fairy tales, and in possibilities. Then you grow older and that innocence is shattered and somewhere along the way the reality of life gets in the way and you’re hit by the realization that you can’t be all you wanted to be, you just might have to settle for a little bit less.

Or perhaps a variation of what you once wanted.

Why do we stop believing in ourselves? Why do we let facts and figures and anything but dreams rule our lives?”
― Cecilia Ahern, Love, Rosie

 

 

“Our life is made up of time; our days are measured in hours, our pay measured by those hours, our knowledge is measured by years. We grab a few quick minutes in our busy day to have a coffee break. We rush back to our desks, we watch the clock, we live by appointments. And yet your time eventually runs out and you wonder in your heart of hearts if those seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years and decades were being spent the best way they possibly could. In other words, if you could change anything, would you?”
― Cecilia Ahern, Love, Rosie

Somehow, at some point, we’ve met.

Like when a song ends as another one begins, we’re crossfading.

Life and More

Revisited the Book of Job for the schmushth time. Amazed by how God’s word speaks true then and now. Job is probably one of the most liked characters in the Bible. His story can give us a proper perspective of our own problems or testings in life. During hard times we ask, “Why me?” But is this the most important question to answer, or could there be something else there that really matters like, “Why do we serve God?”

This book got me into thinking and examining my heart as well. Do I serve God because I love Him? Or do I serve and love Him only at good days? Does my love know no seasons?

Once in our life, we have probably asked if ever we’ll find someone who will love us at all time? But have we ever imagined at the least, that like us, God is asking the very same question? Will He find someone who will love Him at all time?

I have known for a while now that love is a decision. But what does it really mean aside from the fact that we can get to choose who/what/where/when are we going to love? How about… to love means to choose to say the kindest word, the humblest act, and the purest thought possible even if we don’t feel like loving sometimes, or at moments when we find it especially hardest to love. It is to choose to love at good times, and a little bit more at bad times.

 

Blessed is the one who made it through the tough times because the reward is life and more.

If ever you say, “I do”

I already got my post covered for the next month. Yup! That’s me excited! Another product of those sleepless nights. Anyway, today I just thought of the many wedding bells I’ve been hearing lately, and remembered someone asking “What is the heart of marriage?” Well, if ever you say “I do”, including me, let’s remember what they say…

 

 “The heart of marriage is covenant.”

Choose wisely.

Choice, I believe,  is one of the most wonderful gifts God gave us. I don’t believe in “No Choice”. There is always a choice. Yes, sometimes, a circumstance presents us with not so many options (not to mention that we are bounded by our own principles and beliefs) that can render us limited, but we still have a choice. Even not choosing between the limited options we have at a particular moment is a choice; we can choose to do nothing. But what would that say about us? Or we can choose to do something that could make our life count…anything but less. As for me,

 

I choose life.

I choose to forgive myself for all my mistakes.

I choose to hope.

I choose not to be locked up in the past.

I choose to be free.

I choose to believe in love and not in hurts.

I choose the truth and not the lies.

I choose to be in faith and not fear.

I choose to be happy.

I choose to be a better person…no…the best person that I can be…

the right person that I ought to be.
