This Is Love

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7
New International Version (NIV)

Did You Get What You Prayed For?

Have you ever wanted something so bad, you yearn and pray for it over and over, that it frustrates and even hurt when it feels like nothing's happening?

I did.

I wanted an escape and I wanted it fast. I was desperate. I prayed for it, wrote it on my prayer requests and even asked friends to pray for it - week after week. But it wasn't happening.

And it was in my desperation that I came to read this book. "Did you get what you prayed for?" by Nancy Jo Sullivan and Jane A.G. Kise. 

excerpts from my favorite chapter
To be completely honest, I still want it - but only in a way. I want it to happen but through God's will and in His perfect time. 

What changed?

My heart. I chose to trust God more. To rely, NOT on what I think I deserve but in His scandalous grace instead. To wait with hope, knowing that He is working.

"Trust makes all the difference when you are in a time of waiting."

Nothing to Fear

Thank You Lord for mid-week breaks at The Feast (Alabang)! #WFA

For the dreams You planted in my heart and for the assurance of an awesome life. Whatever comes my way, with You here beside me, I know I have nothing to fear. I trust You Lord!

And Chris Tomlin's "Sovereign" song says it all. <3

Happy Birthday to our feast builder, Bro J Yogawin! Here's us obviously happy getting a group photo with him. :D

Made In Candy

"All that I love in my hand - and they're all made in candy."

A recent photo posted in my Instagram account. I love these not only because they're cute and are indeed candies, but what each symbol reminds me :)

  • Smiley = Happiness
  • Rainbow = Hope
  • Stars = Good Friends
  • Butterfly = Beauty of Life
  • Koala (furry animal) = Love
  • Clover = Good Luck

Nope. no heartaches or whatsoever, it's just that looking at my previous blog (been up for three years yet with very little number of posts) makes me sad. So I decided... why not start a new blog?
