Stolen Heart

I was lying in bed one nightIn the plains of KansasWhen I heard a voiceCame out of nowhere Like a shooting starIn the vast of empty skiesThe freezing cold rainAnd the dreaded wintry mix Could not hideIt’s lightShining so brightThat whoever stares at itWould loss ones sight I heard her voiceCalled my nameLike she’d known meFrom all the agesThat has been forgottenWhen the ancients passed. To my surprisedShe opened up and gave her trustTo a stranger like meWhom she barely knew In return I opened my heartI let the doors wide openSo she could come and goWhenever she wants Little did I knowThe moment she gained my trustThat she would steal my heartAnd I don’t thinkShe’ll return it back Stolen heart, stolen heartHow will I everGet you back She has goneTo the deepsWhere thatFabled AtlantisUsed to reside.

Marriage is not for you..

if you don’t want someone telling you what to do. if you’re not financially responsible. if you don’t want someone to rearrange your furniture or wardrobe. if you have a problem putting the toilet seat up or too lazy to refill the toilet paper. if you loathe self-sacrifice. if you’re a burden to each other. if you can’t keep your fly closed or keep your legs closed. if you think it’s the answer to all your troubles. if you think life will be easier. if you just want to be taken care of. if your career takes precedence above all else. if you dislike doing house chores. if you love the company of your friends more than your companion. if you can’t hold your tongue. if you  dread the idea of sleeping with only one individual for the rest of your life. if you’re dominating. if you find it repulsive to compromise and work out differences. if you can’t manage your anger. if you like to hold grudges and score cards. if you hate doing dishes. if you despised cooking. if your seam burst every time a button is press. if you craved instant gratification. if you take things for granted, whine about every thing and appreciate nothing. if you don’t like to explain things over and over. if you don’t like being asked the same questions and you give the same answer, then asked the same question again. if […]

Slippery Slope

Nothing is more painful than someone breaking your heart.  Especially if you’ve been together for so  many years that you wouldn’t even think that something stomach crunching would happen.  You would never dreamed  the idea of betrayal, separation and divorce.  Not once that it ever crossed your mind.  They were no red flags, no signs.  It’s like a flash of […]

The Unbroken Trust

It’s been more than two weeks since my last post.  I always try methodically to post at least one article every week.  Part of it is the Christmas season, I wanted to take a break.  Part of it I didn’t know what to write nor I was able to find the inspiration to do it.  Some is just lack of effort and I wanted to spend some time reading my books since I have like thirty-five of them on my lists and they just keep growing.  And the last excuse that I have is I’m just busy at work and at home.  Only now this evening that I found time to write this. Writing has always been an outlet for me.  A place where you could journey in my world, a venue where I leave my angst, my pain and despair.  A sanctuary where I could purify myself and rid all the malice and guilt brought upon by the journey I am making in this world. It’s been a good run this year.  Soon, in a few more days, the New Year will be here.  For those who read my blog, my sincere gratitude to you all.  I’ve shared with you my failures-which for the most part dominated my life.  But in spite of it I’ve gain ground, grew up, mature spiritually.  The biggest growth I have is learning to trust God.  Letting go of the wheel and letting Him […]

A Letter from the Father

If you could just take your time Take a break from all the grindstone of life Inundated by the fracas of unending Schedules, appointments, family gatherings Mobile phones, social medias, entertainment Never ending lists of books to read Conference, seminars, showroom expos Internet, partying, video games, movie marathons Endless chats on messenger Must comment on this and that on your media feeds How many likes, how many thumbs down The cry, the laughter, the anger of emojis Tweet, tweet you have to get that out You have ten thousand followers And they must be satisfied Because it is the drug that gets you high I heard you say, “I don’t feel God, I don’t see Him, His presence is nowhere to be found.” You are… Lost in the lights of the cities A light blinding, shimmering, captivating Must have this, must have that Must keep up with what the masses got I am within you I am around you I painted the sky blue Throw some white puffs in You could make something out of it If you could just use your imagination Like the child you were Innocent and playful Sans souci, that’s what you used to be You can’t see it, you refuse to You’d rather be in the comfort of your abode White ceilings, dotted with led’s and high beam lights As you lay down on your couch You’re eyes gazing aimlessly At that overhead interior surface […]

Victory by Defeat

The passage above are the words spoken by the prophet Jeremiah to King Zedekiah asking him to submit to the authority of Babylonians due to Israel’s recalcitrance. This is how I usually feel when I speak God’s truth.  It’s not a comfortable position to be.  To ask for your surrender to God’s will by obeying Him.  Still, the Bible is replete with surrender after surrender in submission to God.  From Joseph, a victim of flagrant injustice, locked away forgotten in a dingy cell.  David, hunted down by Saul’s elite guard.  Running away like a rabbit hiding in caves and even he had the chanced and justification to end Saul’s life he refuse to do it because God didn’t command him to. Finally, there it was the crucifixion of God’s only Son.  Hanging on the cross, defeated by the Roman empire, the principalities and the rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12).  Blood, sweat and tears.  Gasping for breath like a goldfish pluck out of its bowl.    In spite of the hurt, the darkness that engulf them, those feeling of being forsaken, doors slamming on your face and windows closing just when you’re hands had a grasp on them.  They’ve learned to trust and obey. Imagine the bewildered face of the one who comes to steal, seek and destroy (John 10:10).  His jaw dropped.  Scratching his head.  He thought he’d won, “Victory at last,”  he says.  It […]

In Your Quest For Love, Do Not Defy God

Love is the most potent catalyst in the world. So puissant that you would defy overwhelming opposition.  It has been the one single entity that breaks boundaries, traditions, culture, stereotypes, religion and nations. Have you heard someone say, “Oh, I’ll never fall in love with that guy” or “I wouldn’t touch her with a ten foot pole.” A soldier got sent to a foreign land with such contempt and disdain towards that country’s people, only to find himself mesmerize by one of their maidens, and lo and behold, he falls in love. A gal  who scoff at online relationships only to find herself embroiled in it because the words she reads on her phone speaks through her soul, pure and unheard of from any of her previous suitors. Two souls who doesn’t share the same faith.  Who were both raised to scorn at each other, that their own way of salvation is the only way.  Given the chance and circumstance, their eyes meet and an ember suddenly start flickering until it turn into a blaze that it consumes both of them, drowning, gasping for breath and the only way they could broach the surface is when they hold hands at those stolen times in their clandestine places. Then there was I, fourteen years of marriage (marrying an unbeliever, now divorced), a result of my defiance to God, saying I know better than Him, I got this I said, shut my […]
