Grace, overflow in me in every moment of my everyday.
It’s definitely summer for me because it’s been a little over two years since I’ve felt this way. Welcome summer. I’ve missed you.
Wait, God --
Why? Why not allow me to move away from my awful past, and start new…
”..studies of happiness and wisdom reveal that a key factor in well-being is devoting one’s attention and passions to the benefit of others instead of just focusing on the individual, separate concerns of a private self.

Speechless at how God continues to reach His hands out to me, and show me that time is truly, truly in His hands. His timing is perfect!!! Believe me when I tell you that God has a plan for you, and all you need to do is pray and be patient with Him. For me, slowly, step by step, everything is starting to make sense. I cannot help myself from constantly wanting to know Him a little more and a...
Not mine, but His.
Currently trying to prohibit myself from constantly wanting to be lifted up by other people. So, for few days, weeks… I will try to stop using first-person narrative. So that I can realize that I can’t exist without Him.
Feeling like this, sucks.
We easily forget that having such a joyful heart towards God is a privilege. I hated where I was, and now I love it — I can honestly say that I’m growing and receiving so much in this place where He has provided me with. And this feeling is exciting! The spiritual battle was tough and full of worst temptations to take my focus off from God. But I’m here — and so is He.
[x] struggled with family [x] struggled with friends [x] struggled with myself [x] struggled with faith and currently struggling with school. God, I don’t know what mindset I need to have at this moment, but I am in the perfect place to receive your grace, gifts, miracles and your presence. But help me to receive all of that without losing my focus on you — I don’t want to...
Currently calculating my tentative grades for this semester, and I’m dying. All those little things count…. why did I overlook at them…. Sigh.
God, Your timing is perfect. I invited You over to my heart few days ago, and You came to reach out Your hands to grab my attention. I honestly do not have much to offer You, but thank you for accepting my cry. How thankful I am that You shook me, and broke me in the worst/best ways to awaken my soul and spirit. Evil spirits/thoughts attacked and consumed me as soon as I started to dwell in You....

Tell me why I feel like as if I still need you. Tell me why you were at the end of my tunnel.
I cry every time I get encouraged or get compliments because it makes me happy that people like what I do. It’s CRAZY.

This moment is sweeping me off the ground. Getting more tired and feeling weak. I abhor being in this stage, over and over again. Just when I thought I was slowly getting there, I found myself slowly drifting away from His words, and getting comfortable in this wrong state. God, I feel and even fear that you’re inadequate. Perfectly inadequate. God, draw me closer and help me to remain in...

What you just said is part of the reason why I broke up with you. Unbelievable. How is it that with that much knowledge, you’re so ignorant and heartless. I hope one day you can realize what you’re doing to yourself and to all those people who look up to you so much. So disappointed. Ugh. Frustrations.
10 Things Jesus Never Said
1. You’re too far gone to be saved 2. I’m so disappointed in you 3. This wouldn’t be happening if you were a better Christian 4. It’s okay not to love certain people 5. Everyone should believe and act like you do 6. It’s all up to you 7. You don’t have to forgive someone who really hurts you 8. You missed my will for your life 9. I’ve given up on you 10. This is a cross you must bear
Stir me up.
What does it take? How long will it take? What do you require of me to truly, sincerely surrender it all to you? Because I long to —- When you became a man, you knew. You knew you would take the place of falling men. When you became a man, you hung there. Shouldn’t that be enough to wake me up?
Hiked for an hour by ‘myself’ while talking to God. I don’t know anything anymore. Who am I to deserve His love right now? I really can’t. I can’t accept His love — that just seems so selfish of me.
And everything you believed in is starting to crumble all down and change its shape and form. You know you need help, but are you going to accept His help?
Other than death
yesthisispam: Getting Alzheimer’s is such a scary thought. I don’t want to forget the experiences I’ve had or the people I’ve met. It’s like becoming reborn again, but in an old, wrinkly body..making it less exciting.
The question --
He has always been our father, and He will always be our father. The question is, will you be His child? He is waiting for you.
