When I’m silent, I feel uncomfortable.
When I’m silent, I overthink bad things.
When I’m silent, I feel pain.
People always judge you. It’s because they don’t understand you. It’s because they can’t put themselves in your shoes. It always happens to me.
They just don’t understand that when I’m silent, I’m feeling down. And I need someone who will comfort me. Not someone who will trample me down even more. Instead of making me feel better, they’re making it worse.
I hate people who has crab mentality. They won’t stop until they’re satisfied of putting you down. They don’t care if their words will hurt someone because for them? It’s their way of satisfying themselves.
No matter what you are, or what you do. Keep going. Do what you gotta do to make yourself better and better each day of your life. They’ll still criticize you anyway. Learn a lesson from them. It will keep you moving forward.

There’s a voice calling me, from an old rugged tree
And He whispers draw closer to me
Leave this world far behind,
There are new heights to climb
And a new place in Me you will find
And whatever it takes, to draw closer to You Lord
That’s what I’d be wiling to do
And whatever it takes, to be more like you
That’s what I’d be willing to do
Take my houses and lands,
Take my dreams and my plans.
I place my who life in Your hands.
And if you call me someday,
To a land far away,
Lord, I’ll go and Your will obey.
And whatever it takes to draw closer to You, Lord,
That’s what I’ll be willing to do.
And whatever it takes for my will to break,
That’s what I’ll be willing to do.
Oh, I just love this song by Lanny Wolfe Trio! ❤

Some of us were afraid of change. Some even think that changing yourself is like not loving yourself the way you are. But for me, that’s wrong.
We want to change ourselves, not because you don’t love yourself. But to be the better version of what you are yesterday. We change because simply, we care for ourselves.

Place your hand over your heart. Feel that? That’s called purpose. You’re alive for a reason. Don’t forget that.
The most beautiful music in the world is your own heartbeat because God composed it.
Faith does not mean trusting God to stop the storm, but trusting Him to strengthen us as we walk through the storm.
Losing is a learning experience. It teaches you humility. It teaches you to work harder. It’s also a powerful motivator. – Yogi Berra
Sometimes the smallest act of love can take up the biggest space in someone’s heart.

Sometimes, I hate myself. I hate myself for being so sensitive. I hate myself for doing mistakes. I hate myself for being a crybaby. I hate myself for being weak.
I hated all my flaws, my imperfections. I hated my own self. Sometimes, I don’t understand. I really don’t.
When sometimes, I open myself to other people. That’s when people judge me. They say I’m too shallow. They say, why am I thinking such things?
Yet I can’t understand myself too. They say those kind of things when you’re in the middle of chaos. They say those kind of things when you’re in a hopeless situation. No one to cling to.
I was in the midst of darkness. The devil keeps on pushing and pushing me all the way to the cliff. I kept on shouting for help yet no one would dare to save me from my agony. I was so desperate. The devil keeps on condemning me.
The moment I decided to gave up, that’s when Christ tooked my hand and lifted me up. His Light was like the waters that covered my sea of darkness. The blood that was shed on the cross keeps on reminding me that He loves us so much He gave Himself for the remission of our sins.
Right now after experiencing those sufferings, I found myself in the arms of God. I was lost but now I’m found. Was a sinner but saved by God’s wonderful grace.

Hi, Kuya Victor. I miss you so much. I miss how the way you styled me when I was young. I miss how you always share your bright smile to us. I miss everything about you. You were the only person who gave me gift when I turned 15. It means a lot to me. Although you were sick back then, you never forget it was my birthday. Even though the money you used to buy the ice cream was not yours, still, thank you. I’m grateful for having a brother like you. Aside from the Lord, you were the only person who’s been my best friend, my brother and my advicer.
Remembering your death, I feel sorrowful. I can’t help myself but to cry. But at the end of the day, I’m happy. Because you don’t have to suffer anymore. You don’t have the reason to cry in pain anymore. I know you are happy now. I know you are in a blissful situation right now. And I’m happy because of that.
I will see you on that Day. And when we meet, I will hug you and tell stories with you. Together, we will praise and worship the Almighty God, the Creator of all things, the Alpha and Omega, who was and is to come. There will be no more pain and no more tears to dim the eye. See you soon, my beloved brother, when that Day comes. Amen.

When we feel like we have no strength to continue in our life, that is when we must surrender our weakness to Christ and take on his strength.
Too often we let our circumstances rob us of our joy. It is as though we can only trust that God is with us when things are going good in our life. In Isaiah 43:2, God tells us, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk throught he fire you shall not be burned and the flame shall not consume you.” I can assure you that pretty much covers the pain of everything you can face on this earth. God is telling those who believe on Him that He is just as powerful in the darkness as He is in the light.
Nothing can defeat us when our hope is in Christ. He can always bring us out of the storm.
We are living in a world that is in a great upheaval. Right has been called wrong and evil is replacing good.
To stand for truth means persecution and consequence. Our future may seem like a blur when we are uncertain how to take the next step. Take a leap of faith. Now is the time to let the world know who we belong to. Believing in your heart that God is enough to help us. Anyone can claim to trust God when things are going well. But it is in the time of battle that the worth of our faith is being proved genuine.
If we belong to Christ, all that we endure is part of the unspoken plan that has been designed for our victory. We have reason for hope because Christ lives to intercede for us every second of the day. God will not fail to take us through the troubled seasons of our life. Every one of our tears is precious to him. There is not a step we take or a thought in our mind that is not seen and guided by Christ. He is the light on our path to glory.
Now as Christians we should take God’s armor and wear it daily. The devil of this world cannot overcome God’s authority. Only Christ can complete the number of our days and fulfill our destiny.
If He leads us to a mountain or to a raging sea, He has a purpose and He knows how to get us to trust Him alone. He is our stronghold and a very real help in need.
He won’t let us down. Let Him finish His work in us. Remember He is getting us ready for His coming. We should always look forward on that day that God will smile at us and tell us “Well done, My Child”. ♡

Today, before you think of saying an unkind word, think of someone who can’t speak.
Before you complain about the taste of your food, think of someone who has nothing to eat.
Before you complain about your husband or wife, think of someone who’s crying out to God asking for a companion.
Today before you complain about life, think of someone who went too early to heaven.
Before you complain about your children, think of someone who desires to have children but they’re barren.
Before you argue about your dirty house; someone didn’t clean or sweep, think of the people who are living in the streets.
Before whining about the distance you drive, think of someone who walks the same distance with their bare feet.
And when you are tired and complain about your job, think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished they had your job.
But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another, remember that not one of us are without sin and we all will answer to one Maker.
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down, put a smile on your face and thank God you’re alive and still around.
Life is a gift.
And fulfill it.

What comes in our mind when we hear the word ‘beauty’? Is it about having a pretty face or soul filled with kindness? Well, I prefer the latter.
On this generation of ours, beauty is overlooked by tons of people. For them, it is about having almond-shaped eyes, pointed nose, plump lips, defined jaw and a flawless skin. Physical aspects that are too perfect to be true. That’s why discontented individuals are full of insecurity. Because for them, beauty is measured by its outside appearance.
But for me, it never was.
Beauty, for me, is about having a pure heart and a clean conscience. Real beauty is about having the form of godliness inside and out. Beauty is about having faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly kindness, and most of all, having love (2 Peter 1:5 – 8).
No matter what skin color you have. What race you came from. Always remember that beauty always comes from within. You’re beautiful because you are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14) by the Creator of all things.
