Can this be love?


Love can wait, lust must have it now. 
Love is selfless, lust is selfish. 
Love is giving; lust is taking. 

Love is patient; lust is impatient. 
Love is meek; lust is arrogant. 
Love is manageable; lust is impulsive. 

Love develops;  lust destroys. 
Love is peaceful; lust is anxious. 
Love serves; lust says- this is what I deserve. 
Love rejoices with the truth; lust rejoices in wrong doings. 

Love is secure; lust is insecure. 
Love liberates; lust imprisons. 
Love forgives; lust condemns. 
Love is purity; lust is sin. 
Love is of God; lust is from the world. 

And let's never forget if we don't ever want to suffer, we must be very careful never to love anything or anybody. The gifts of love have been the gifts of suffering. Those two things are inseparable. Elisabeth Elliot


Psalm 119:9 

How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to Your Word.

God is great!

God can provide doorways to dead ends. God can give rebirth to your dying hopes. God knows you very well and God cares for you. His grace is enough and His goodness is always available. He pursues you everyday because His love is reckless, it breaks the power of shame, guilt, fears, anxieties, and doubts. Nothing is impossible to God.

Can this be love?

True genuine love can cost you something, if you love someone you need to sacrifice.

twenty five years of grace

Full of tests yet full of purpose. Full of revisions yet full of meanings. Full of distractions yet full of peace. Full of emptiness yet full of provisions. Full of failures yet full of promises. Full of mistakes yet full of Grace. His love is beyond measure.

Stepping out in Faith

Inhaling His grace and enjoying the beauty of life. Writing about life, asking God about “kuliglig sa kanyang dibdib.”
