I pray for strength
and He gives me sufferings.
I pray for blessings
and He makes me empty.
I pray for patience 
and He doesn't answer my prayers yet.
I pray for breakthroughs
and He breaks me first.

I pray for success 
and I fail a lot. 
I pray for love
and I recieve hate. 

Life is whimsical; full of irony. 
God answers our prayers
differently to purify our character 
and to lean on His character. 

Indeed, He is a faithful God. 
Even it doesn't make sense
I'm glad, He doesn't answer my prayers
the way I expect Him to. 

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither your ways my ways declares the Lord. For as heavens are higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Isaiah 55:8-9

Brave Kid

It was bizarre but I can still narrate every detail of it. It was remarkable, unforgettable, and unbelievable when I was lil’ kid. And right now, it feels the same.

When you’re struggling with how you look

Remember beauty is fleeting; vigor and vitality are fading. Tomorrow you will be missing one tooth, you’ll have sagging skin, and your perfect posture will be crooked.

The narrow road

Liberate yourself from the things that constantly imprison you, flee from them and run with perseverance, courage, faith, love, and hope to the path of life. It may be full of twists and turns but His grace is enough to carry you until you finish the race.

Stepping out in Faith

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