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 […]

Gratefully Satisfied

This afternoon I spent my time browsing stores to fill a couple Samaritan’s Purse’s shoe box’s which I got from my church. It is the size of a shoe box which you fill it with kid’s goodies. Anything from toys to school supplies to hygiene except consumables.  An assortment of gifts for underprivileged children for the upcoming Christmas season. When […]

Exhausted Love

“Give love another chance.” “Not all women are the same.” “Don’t be so hard on yourself.” “Stop being bitter.” “I believe each one of us has a predestined partner for life.” I’ve heard it all.  I know I get it they want me to be happy.  They’re definition of being happy is being with someone.  If only they knew that […]

Is God Enough?

Thursday night, I was busy at work inspecting the electrical components of a printed circuit board.  My mind start to wander away like an astro explorer-continous, unfathomable, immeasurable- lights on, lights off.  Journeying to a vast space of unprecedented places, it could be downright scary but beautiful. Then my mind stopped, I find myself alone, wondering, “If I’ll ever find the right one at the right time.” A soft calm voice utters, “Am I not enough?” Why desire calm and peace Why desire comfort and happiness Why are you longing for companionship A sweet embrace Seraphic, two opposite hands clasp together Seraphic, fingers braided A walk in the moonlight A walk by the sea Dinner for two A movie for both of you The fire flickers in your presence Two souls on a couch One of them is awake The other torpid Lost in the wide openness of your arms Your breath arriving on the top of her head You close your eyes In an instant, you were taken afar Breathe out, breathe in Lyly of the Valley Breathe out, breathe in Jasmine Breathe out, breathe in Gardenia Breathe out, breathe in Chocolate cosmos Breathe out breathe in Plumeria Take my heed Don’t be lost in the garden Of the lineage of Eve Stop breathing the fragrance of Affliction, agony Torment and misery Remember your travails Remember your woes The excruciating torment That jade your soul So God ask me […]

Falling From Grace?

I am compelled to write this as response from a Facebook post regarding children of Christian families who were raised strictly by their parents without explaining them why to follow such rules.  Making them vulnerable especially when they go to college, not only forsaking their faith but also despising it. And what makes a believer backslide. I am not here […]

Burning Coals

I love my job, not only because I enjoy doing it though they’re times it could be monotonous and repetitive.  But because it gives me the serenity and solitude looking through that magnifying lens with a piece of a motherboard under it.  Time and time again it is that bench where I sit with one piece of earphone plug into my left ear, and all these conundrum of ideas start swirling in my mind, like a blender mixing it  altogether.  I never knew what will be the end result, it could be bitter, sweet or sour.  The only way to find out is finish it and have a taste of it. This past Friday, I can’t help but think why still the vitriol my former wife has against me, regardless of whose fault is it why our marriage fell apart (I am not here to point fingers and play the blame game).  I do admit I  was angry and hated her with a righteous indignation.  Time goes on and went by, things became better on my part. The anger or hatred is replaced with pity. Wounds never healed but became more tolerable.  I move on and yet she still clings to that venomous lying thing called hatred.  I know that it probably gives her happiness, one way or the other.  But I also know that it’s destroying her from the inside.  What’s more dangerous is it’s subtleness, undetectable like an adder […]
