Hear me out, ladies!

How many of us pursue character development more than physical attractiveness?

How many of us desire purity, honesty, humility, authenticity, patience, and faith?

How many of us practice loving ourselves despite our flaws and scars, without comparing ourselves in the mainstream?

I am not an exemption, most of the time I found myself dwelling in my insecurities, being consumed by the standards of social media, everyone seems so physically fit and perfect. And you know, what saddened me the most, the younger ladies have been affected, too early.

The mainstream allows every one of us, just to be ourselves. And yes, there's nothing wrong with it, but somehow our response to it. Seductive TikTok videos, alluring selfies, and romantic sex movies are around the corner. Underwear becomes outerwear, flirting becomes a hobby, and trash talks seem so cool and have been the norm.

But how about our character: the underrated elegance in this time. I hope to see you rise above the norm, beyond the pursuit of everyone else.

In this time when modesty has not been prioritized, humility and respect have been neglected, and faith has been abandoned. I hope to see you pursuing what is right and what is noble, so the younger ladies won't find it difficult to love and embrace themselves in this generation.

Let's be accountable to them because I do believe, we are also accountable to our Lord Jesus Christ: who sees, accepts, and loves us despite our imperfections. I pray that you find Him too.

Sometimes during difficult seasons, it can be easy to feel lost and unsure of what to do next. Perhaps what you need is to take small steps of faith each day, finding comfort in the mundane and ordinary moments. As you continue to do this, you will eventually step into a new season of life, one where you are more courageous, hopeful, and surrendered than you were before.

When will be my turn?

Trust Him, His grace is enough. You are not hidden, you are seen, forgiven not condemned, valued and cherished not blemished, redeemed and honored not overlooked, pursued and loved by the lovers of souls, covered by His blood and healed in Jesus Name.

Stepping out in Faith

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