It Rained!

It starts raining now, after a day full of clouds while the sun hides but transmits its presence. Its been gloomy…I don’t like it, though the wind vindicates the oddness the day brings.Droplets

I wish it rained tonight, hoping its gone tomorrow, and I’ll see the sun again. My heart’s been in anguish these past days, and I can’t help but try to contain it. I don’t want to feel this way, though I did feel it, its presence is like these droplets of rain…its everywhere and makes my heart cold.

But hold on, someone keeps coming to the rescue, bringing a small lamp of compassion with the fullness of blessed affection. It is warm, it is bright, though it produces small rays of light, it opens my eyes to a wider possibilities…

The rain suddenly stopped, and I realized its almost morning…soon I’ll see the beautiful sunrise from the east.

There's a hole in my heart
Word of God speak to me
Hold my heart for it belongs to you.

Restore me, restore my soul
Fill my mind, and fill my heart
Hold my broken heart
Breathe on me and revive my soul.

Sing me a song
Bring me to sleep
So my eyes can rest
From the river of tears it tries to suppress.

My faithful, hear me
Let our brokenness become whole
We will be still
For only to Your shield is where we can go.

Don't turn away from me
If ever I had walked away
I pray for your grace and mercy,
To welcome my return.

Rescue my stubborn heart,
Teach it to follow
Teach me to trust in You.
Teach me to sincerely revere You.

Your precious blood
It washes away my iniquities
Great, great is thy sacrifice
Great is thy love.

Like a Bird

Birds flight

Yes, I'm like a bird, flying away wherever the wind blows. I need a master, to show me which direction to go...so I'll end up in a safer place.

Like a bird, I need not to worry...because as birds fly freely over the waters...I too can walk on to life's journey with God providing all I need.

So like a bird, I say there's no need to worry. Like a bird, let us put our trust to our Maker....

Beginning Anew

This is not the first time I said to myself that I'd be beginning anew. There's numerous instances that I promise God not to rebel against him, but I constantly failed to do that. It makes me feeling confused, lost, and guilty again and again.

Our pastor said in one of his preaching - never promise anything to God, because we are bound to fail due to the carnal nature we posses inside our bodies.

It's difficult to promise anyway, especially to a supreme and almighty God who owns everything in the universe. What more can we give God if He has everything. I cannot give anything to God except to obey what He says. Just like what our parents instruct us to do, because they provided everything we need when we were still young and helpless. No other thing to do except to follow so you won't be punished nor deprived of what you want.
I could only hope and pray that I could always be like a child, helpless and reliant to the Father. Offerring to Him everything I have...but its really tough.

Beginning anew, whatever is inappropriate should be stopped. I never intended to hurt anybody, but perhaps, if that's what should be done, then it should be done. I let go of the things to work together, and wait for the good that it will bring to me.

Beginning anew, I want to STOP. I want to look at the sky. I want to pray. I want to pray, pray, pray; because I failed to fervently do that. I would always thought God hears my heart whisphering short studs. Yes, He hears everything...knows everythin...even things we don't want anybody to know. He knows my everything in us. But I rarely give longer time to speak to Him. I am so full of the things around me that the things I always preach to my younger friends had been the least thing I did. Glad that those young folks listen...while they don't know that I don't really LISTEN in full to myself. I don't want them to be like me.

I need Jesus, I pray that You never let me go, even if at times I turn my back on you with the things that I do...hold me my Lord while I'm in this troubled water, don't let me drown. Only you can re-arrange everything to begin anew.

As CHVN radio reminder always say - "When the world stops making sense, turn to us."

Beginning anew, while the world stops making sense on me, I want to return to Jesus....

Say Cheese!

Say Cheese!

How do we say cheese when we can't trace the lips that smile in our faces?

It's simply saying how do you smile when you don't have a reason to. Somehow, smiling can always be faked. Like the shadows that poses for a photograph, we can gesture a happy image even if behind it is a lonesome reality.

Though, its best to smile it out no matter how tough our situation is. No man is an island...and for sure, there will be somebody, somewhere, at a time we never know...somebody that holds us even if they are not physically beside you....
