Patience

Some things that matter takes time. All you need to do is want to understand what drives and inspires you. Simon Sinek

As you grow old you will learn the value of patience and I think I am just learning it now. Not because you want it you will get it, not because you're tired already you'll quit, and not because you're slow you'll stop already. Sometimes we make our dream killers because of our toxicity, pride, and unbelief. 

The things that scare you the most will help you the most, the things that break you will make you stronger. The hard things will change you the most. And when you feel stuck and lost you will find what you truly want. When you stop trying to fit in you'll finally see what's meant for you. And it all takes time and patience to fully comprehend it. And it's okay if you don't figure it out as long as you know what's your end goal, you will keep venturing and aiming until you reach the finish line and the prize. There will always be mishaps and unexpected detours in life but those things build muscles and toughness. It's all for your good. And you always need to be patient while in the process.

Patience is underrated in this world full of instants. But there will be a time that you need to stay in the waiting room for a while, inside that room is full of disappointments, failures, and frustrations. Inside that room, you'll meet hopelessness, fears, and doubts and you might die inside if you don't hold tight to your faith and if you won't muster up your courage to fight.


We all need pounds of patience in each every day and we should give it to others as well.

When teachers lose heart

We lose heart, in part, because teaching is a daily exercise in vulnerability. And this profession- my purpose breaks me and heals me.

Learn from the lil’ Ones

I wonder why He didn't say that the greatest is the one who did many things for him nor the wisest person but a person who humbles himself like a child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

On Waiting

Have you ever enjoyed waiting? What if your waiting prolongs even longer? We all wait for miracles, answered prayers, healing, breakthroughs, revival, restorations, financial provisions, job applications, a life partner, and the list goes on. Hence, no one really enjoys waiting, it’s hard to wait because we all want to be in control. I burst […]

Stepping out in Faith

Inhaling His grace and savoring the beauty of life. And I pray that my journals will transcend into the spaces that need them the most.
