Precious Present

There are days when I feel happy and I just do not want it to end. Days when I could just savor this moment for it to last forever. These days are just like today, yesterday, and since Christmas Day. My special one has brought color and joy into my life and it is just right to savor it for however long I want to, wherever and whenever. These are moments when I want to remember when I am down in the future, just in case, to give me a little pick me up, to tell me to not give up because these days are up ahead.

As you can tell by now, I am happy. Plain and simple. Yep, that’s right. Not the elaborate “overjoyed” kind of way but the good ole’ “joy”, and yep you guessed it right. It is because of this one person. I used to think happiness depending on a person is ridiculous and do not get be wrong, it still is sometimes, however, that person also has the ability to add color into your life. Love, people may say… infatuation to the others, who wants to tone it down a little bit. However, the important part of it is happiness.

Since we are now talking about importance, I think it is just write to talk about its root. Why am I happy? Who is responsible for this burst of emotion? Is it really just this one guy? Or is it this man watching over us, making sure the guy I am happy with and about are experiencing joy instead of just plain happiness. See, I believe “joy” is a little bit deeper than smiles, laughter, euphoria, etc. I believe it comes from within and not only that, I believe it is given.

You may ask, “given… by who?” In my own spiritual understanding, I am absolutely positive it is granted by our Lord Jesus Christ. In Psalms 16:11 it is written, “You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever.” This is the root of my joy, Jesus Christ. He is the reason why I sing His praise & worship when I am taking a shower, doing my makeup, doing my chores at work. He loves me deeply and he expresses it to me through this joy.

All I can say is thank you Jesus Christ. Before this year ends, I encourage you to reflect on what He has done in your life, how much he loves you, how he died and rose again to save you from your sins, and who He is in your everyday life. He is always there for you and for me, it is just a matter of us constantly reminding ourselves to not worry because He has gifted us joy, so we must live and act upon this precious present He has given.


You Can Do Anything: Just Believe

Hey Bloggers!

“You Can Do Anything You Set Your Mind to Do” This is a saying I believe is true. You will make time for it, especially when you start rejecting any excuse. When you have the enough faith and motivation, you can do anything. The impossible begins to be accomplished, and you will see changes in your life.

At first, it may seem difficult because it is just the beginning. However, when you have warmed up to life’s demands and pace, you are able to finish the race. We all have tasks waiting to be touched, we all have those visible and invisible piles of things to do, and it may seem impossible to complete them… however, if you just believe that you are going to finish where you left off, you will.

You will persevere through the rough times, and finish what you started. We all have experienced life’s overwhelming desires, and when we give up it is not ‘life’ we are giving up on, nor its challenges… we are simply giving up on ourselves, on our God-given abilities to succeed.

God will never give you anything you cannot handle. You are more than equipped to fight the challenges life throws at you. You have a God who is bigger than anything and anyone in this world and He is with you, always. So the next time you feel like life has knocked you over, remember it has not. It feels like it, but you are still standing so do not give up, because the end is closer than you think.

Looming Stranger

“Let me in!”

I can’t
I can’t touch the cold hard knob
Refuse to unhook the latch
Just close your eyes
It will go away

In and Out

“Open the door!”

I won’t
I won’t leap to the mountains
Refuse to take a step

Block the noise
Clear your mind
An illusion
That is all
Voices of your imagination

Steady your breath

“I’m coming back!”

Compose yourself
It is over
For now


Remnants Resurface

I do not want to know
But somehow
Has its way
Through accidental glimpses

Are they accidents?
Are accidents even real?
I try
To cover my eyes
Hide my mind

Remnants of you resurface

Your presence
As they creep up
Too late to stop

Making its way carelessly
Stepping through cracks
Visiting facts
Replaying such acts

Will I ever get away?
From your shadows of relay
Accidental display


Mediocre Be Bold


Tell me
How I can write away with thee
Tell Me
How I can write extraordinarily

Will I hit my goals
Touch souls

Will hearts be stitched

Attentions lured
Brokenness cured
Intentions pured
Fill a void

Whose heart will I hold?
Mind forever fold
Silence told


Mediocre be bold




Hey Bloggers!

We all have waited, waited for something and someone. When we wait, we are either ordered to stay put or do something. When we are asked to watch and wait, what happens? We tend to get impatient, frustrated, and angry. Several questions run through our beautiful minds: “What happens next?” “When will it happen” “Is it even worth waiting for?” These phrases fill our minds, and we lose hope. We lose sight of the bigger things God has in store for us. We start to settle and force situations that are not part of His plan, causing a delay to our destination.

Then an offer comes. Someone comes. Something comes. And we are thrilled because finally they have arrived. However, they are part of the trial. They are part of God’s challenge for you, and they are not where you are meant to stay. Our hearts are excited because we made ourselves believe that “this is it”, but they are merely a trial. So, when we are back to waiting, we question God’s plans, making us believe that maybe we have to do something or maybe we are not doing enough. However, no matter how hard we try, we still end up waiting.

Waiting for a response, that flicker of hope that lets us know that our wait will soon be over. Make believe signals we craft in our minds giving us something to hold on to, while we are walking into uncertainty. The only thing we are definite about is the fact that something or someone is worth the wait, and even that is not enough to satisfy our thirst for answers. We want to examine the specifics, the who, what, where, when, why, how…

You see waiting is an oxymoron. We wait and we feel constant, however, what is going on in our minds is really a roller coaster. For time it is constant, linear ticking of clock, but for our impatient minds and hearts we are on a ride of hope, fear, promise, and despair. The truth of the matter is in fact: you are not just simply waiting; your faith and patience are being polished. You are being prepared for the next big thing.

Into my mind
Never left my side

Into my soul
Never made me whole

Into my heart
Never took my part

Into my body
Never kept me steady
