Welcome home

with warm hugs!

Your Safe Haven

i write because it liberates me

and i hope and pray you feel the same way here.

these are collections of letters, journals, stories, and poems

about faith, hope, love, failures and struggles

which inspire me to seek Christ more,

to delight myself in the Lord

and to enjoy life in Him.

May this blog reminds you that

you are not fighting hard battles alone.

Jesus is our Safe Haven!

There are ebbs and flows in life. Sometimes you need to go along the beat and rhythm of life knowing you are safe in His hands.

Dear young women,

You really won't understand your life as a woman until you understand this: You are passionately loved by the God of the universe. You are passionately hated by his enemy. Captivating

Deep inside

It is unsafe to have your heart unguarded and think you still have a safe haven. It is unsafe to once again open up yourself to relationships that have gotten you hurt in the past without learning and applying lessons from mistakes learned through it. It is unsafe, most of all, to let your emotions take over your sensibilities. As Proverbs 6:27 says, "Can a man carry fire next to his chest and his clothes not be burned?"

Inhaling His grace, for His glory

Writing has been my airbag since then, my safe haven. It is my way to communicate to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He always fills my empty cup and empty heart. I am a sinner and I don't deserve him but because God so loved the world, He gave his only Son that so whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believed is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. ( John 3:16-18)

I am saved by His amazing grace, through Jesus- I am a new creation, forever saved!
