Exalted

June 14, 2013

Sometimes, we reach a point where everything is just how we want things to be.

When you’re at this point, be thankful. Celebrate every moment. Live every day. Glorify the Lord in the best way you know how. Say your prayers of thanks.

These moments won’t always last. But there is always something greater.

It is not true what they say that when you’re already there, there is no other way to go but down. The truth is, when you reach the peak of everything you’ve aimed for, when you’re already at the top, there is STILL another way up. You carve a way up. You defy expectations. You empower yourself.

Thank you, Lord, for everything you have blessed me with. I always ask for more not because I am never satisfied but because I know you can give more and you always do. It is because I have faith that you only give what is good. I know your plans are to prosper me. I know you will take me there.

Streaks

Love is not perfect.

People say that love is perfect and that the lovers are the ones who are not.

However, love, in itself, is not perfect either. I believe the only perfect thing ever is the creator.

Anyway, it does not really matter if love is perfect or not. After all, the most beautiful things in this life are those that have their imperfections. I mean, what kind of boring shit this life would be if everything was just peachy?

A rose would not be as precious without its thorns.

The rainbow would not come out without a first having a little rain.

A diamond would not glitter if it is not cut and bruised.

I guess what I’, trying to say is that while love is not perfect, we have a perfect God who loves us BECAUSE of our imperfections. That alone is one of the greatest things to be thankful for.

Hello, Hello

January 1, 2013

Today is the first day of the year.

I wasn’t really looking forward to saying goodbye to 2012. For one, it has been an amazing year for me. It may be one of the best years I’ve had in my 28 years of colorful existence.

I don’t know what 2013 has in store. I don’t know if it’s going to be a good year, or if this will be a let down. I do hope that, even if it won’t be as great as 2012, it will still be a year that celebrates what life and the world should be about.

I have many things planned for 2013, big ones, actually.

I’m not a person who believes in new year’s resolutions. I’m more of the goal-setting type. This is why I don’t resolve to be anything or do anything this year. What I have is a set of goals that I pray I would meet before the year ends.

As a look back, I made a couple of goals last year that I was not able to meet. However, the more important ones I set were achieved, thanks to God.

For this year, I am going to set new goals and plans, higher and bigger ones. I hope and pray God guides me in making the right decisions, so I can meet the things I plan to meet.

I don’t really know what to ask for from God this year. I haven’t asked him for something big, lately, and I plan to keep it that way. All I really want for myself is to be healthy. All I pray for is that God will keep me away from any sickness. I will not ask for money, a great career, a happy life, a nice house, a car, etc.

All I need is health. As long as I’m healthy, I know that God will help me in reaching for greater things. Money and career is something that I have to work on, not something I ask from God. If he makes me healthy, I can work, have a career and make money. A happy life really depends on how I see things, also not something I also not something to ask from God.

So, Lord, please grant my only prayer of being healthy all the time. Please keep me away from sickness, of any form. Please help me keep away from the massive headaches that have been attacking me all the time. Please hold me in your arms, so that no harm will come my way. That’s the only thing I want for myself. For my family and loved ones, all I ask is to give them the things that make them happy, even if those things are at my expense.

Hello, 2013. For now, i really have no idea just what you’re up to. However, if you’re up to some mischief, let me in on it, and let’s be mischievous together.

Clashes

October 12, 2012

There are people in your life you will remember for always. You may never see each other again, but you know that these people have greatly impacted the person you have become.

I have so many people to thank the Lord for. As hard as life has been, I think I’d gladly go through all of the hardships again, if it meant I’d still end up where I am now.

I will always be thankful for the friends I have made along the way. I will also remember those people who have become a huge part of my life, even if it was only for a moment.

To my friends, thank you. To my family, lots of love. To God, you have my life.

Let’s celebrate happiness!!!

Hypocrisy and Personal Freedom

September 28, 2012

I watched Easy A on cable TV earlier tonight. I like that movie. I like the actress. I like the way it shows how difficult high school can be. I never had a hard time in high school, but that’s beside the point because that is not the reason why I am writing this blog now.

What I actually want to talk about is the fact that the movie depicts those who are supposed to be the “religious” crowd are also the quickest ones to judge. And I have to admit… That is sooooo true in real life. You know those people who go to church every freaking Sunday and tell the world how much they read and follow the Bible and heed the word of God? Well, they also almost always happen to be the most unforgiving.

I am not saying these people aren’t any good, and I certainly have nothing against them. I just wish, however, that these people got off their high horses. I hate to say I am judgmental sometimes, but at least I don’t pretend to be holier than anybody.

As much as we tell everybody that we now live is a new world, one that’s more liberated and open-minded, the truth is actually far from that. We are still on the dark ages when it comes to understanding each other and having compassion for others. We are still.controlled by the thought of “what other people might say” instead of what we have to say for ourselves. Unless we start remembering that we are only accountable to our personal God (and I say this because I respect other religion), we will never truly be free to become what we are meant to be.

It’s So Nice To Be Happy

January 3, 2010

I have learned a very important thing over the holidays. I’ve been sick for almost a week now, but I am still as positive and energetic as I can be. I spent New Year’s Eve shivering with cold while the rest of my friends and family sang their hearts out to their favorite songs (we had videoke for the entire neighborhood). Videoke is our version of the popular Karaoke wherein you choose a song and you sing it to the best that you can.

Even as I felt my body start to give in to sickness, I still tried to celebrate the coming of 2010 with my friends and family. I just had to sleep earlier than them because any later, I would have been too sick to even write this blog today. The lesson that I learned? Well, it’s the fact that even when we have so much fun being with our friends, partying, celebrating, or doing stuff we like, nothing can still beat the happiness that our family can bring. It’s just so different when we’re with our family.

I am so fortunate that I got to celebrate Christmas and New Year with the most important people in my life. I know that not everybody celebrated the holidays with joy. But I can only hope that my fellowmen who feel so sad and desperate will one day find it in their hearts to be happy again. I hope that they will find peace and that they will never turn away from God.
