Me. Today. Sunday.
Now Playing: What If God Was One Of Us by Joan Osborne
I can’t define love by myself. I mean, yes I do love my family and friends and most of all God, but opposite sex wise, I don’t think that I’ve TRULY loved. It’s a little sad, I know. That’s why I can’t define love in my own words. I can only tell how it feels I guess? I believe God is love and love is everywhere. Love is in everyone. It’ll come to me when the right time comes. I believe it will.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
I’ve known Him all my life. He’s been there during my happiest moments and painful failures. Sometimes I take Him for granted - take His love, His blessings for granted. But He never gave up on me. I know He will always be present. In my heart He will forever be existing. His love is greater than my life and will always be. There are times when I get overwhelmed with planning my life ahead, stirred by all my human and worldly desires and tend to forget how His plan will just outshine everything I thought was the best for me. The big picture, His legendary master plan has already been arranged. He knows me personally. He knows every single detail about me, every line in my palms, every hair strand, everything that my heart desires, He knows it all. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. As I hike through this mountainous kind of life, I apprehend how great He is everyday. How He place all the road blocks ahead of me for His grand reason. Under any circumstances, I expect to get hurt. I’ve been hurt and bruised, there are people who passed my life and scarred it. They defaced my trust, my self worth and my perfect view of the world. But whenever I feel like breaking down, I just take a moment. A moment to close my eyes, talk to Him and feel His warm, loving hug. A hug that is so powerful that neither I can understand nor explain. And by that moment on, I feel loved - truly and unconditionally. People can give me happiness - all the evanescent comfort and attention. But it’s only God who, beyond doubt, beyond questions, will love me faithfully. And with all my borrowed life, I will worship Him.
Who has told every lightning bolt where it should go/ Or seen heavenly storehouses laden with snow/ Who imagined the sun and gives source to its light/ Yet conceals it to bring us the coolness of night/ None can fathom.
Indescribable, uncontainable/You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name/ You are amazing God/ All powerful, untameable/ Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim/ You are amazing God/ Incomparable, unchangeable/You see the depths of my heart and You love me the same/ You are amazing God. ❤
I was asked to do the 1st reading for the mass at our parish church today. And since I always get nervous every time I speak in front on the crowd, my first reaction to the offer was, “WHY ME?” But then I thought, we should never reject an offer, especially when it’s for our dear God. He chose ME to do it and I did it for His glory.
Have a blessed Sunday everyone!
…is so nakakapressure. Kakastress. God, please please give me the strength and sense of focus. Konteng tiis na lng.
…that nothing is exciting if you know what the outcome is going to be. You keep wanting to know how things will play out, keep asking to see the future. God doesn’t give anyone the power to know the future, because life becomes maddeningly boring when you know everything upfront. So, instead of struggling, enjoy the uncertainty - to be alive means to not know.
