In just a blink of an eye, time moves as fast as you never imagined. You’re at the peak of confusion and frustration. You’re done with fantasy as you face the reality of life.

Yes, all of us believed in heroes when we were little ones. But now, you started to grasp the mystery of life.  As you step into another chapter of your journey, many troubles are stirring.


You’re now in that stage; you started visualizing what will be your life in the future, who will be your partner? You are now confused about the chosen path that you’re traveling. You’re now frustrated because you’re not able to meet deadlines. You’re in despair because you’re surrounded by toxic people.

You started to see everything clearly and now, you’re really afraid. You can’t see your potential. You felt that you are left behind, and you see giants in your path. And your feet started losing their strength. Your dreams seem to fade out in your mind.

Yes, we feel the same way. Often, when we faced adulthood; we feel the heavy burden of priorities. We are pressured, whenever disappointments arise. We’re cramming, when there are many things on our hands. What should be done first?

Discouragements come easily to our minds when we failed. But one thing I realized as I stepped my feet on this stage, I’m with Him. I am still breathing and I should inhale His grace, because, without Him, I am nothing.

This verse gives me assurance whenever I faced the burdens of adulthood “You then, my son be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus” 2 Timothy 2:11 but it’s more tasteful in the Tagalog version. “Kaya’t ikaw anak ko maging malakas ka sa biyayang na kay Cristo.

We’re facing this kind of feeling because we’re actually moving and the only thing we need to do is to continue breathing His grace. Burdens are there but He is more powerful than anything else in this world.

Thanks for your corrections. 😊

So many things compete for our daily attention. We need to be centered in God to know what is truly important.

Come as you are

No matter how deep the emptiness you feel, you can always have as much of Jesus as you want. Come as you are, no more hiding, no more pretending, and no more trying. He sees you, He knows you, and He cares for you, just come as you are because in Him nothing is impossible.
