So much for planning So much for hope So much for faith Or is just fate? So much for understanding So much for forgiving So much for second chances Is change ever coming? Days have gone by So are months And years Decades It’s still the same thing No matter what I do No matter what I think No matter how I feel No matter how convince I am It’s just you.
Sitting on my bed Things going through my head Expectations are illusions Like a smoke, a dust, Like a silhouette, like a mirage in the desert Hoping to fill that thirst Only to find emptiness. What does life revolve around? The money, the cars, a big house Perfect family, caring friends In which I have none It’s not enough Something is missing Listening to music Stare outside of the window Having a thousand yards stare Through the clouds and beneath the horizons What is beyond that Is there someone there Or something To fill the emptiness To fill the void it created Everything to be desired Have been fulfilled and exceeded The more you have The more burden If desire is not there Would it make you stop To feel like a human What now, what then The emptiness.
We all know that the world is not ruled by righteous individuals. Power and money is their main goal. Money is not bad rather it is the love of it. The whole world revolves around commerce. Sadly in order to keep the money flowing things need to break, no cure for diseases only treatment, make the people feel bad, feed them with all kind of garbage through the media, make lies sound truthful and truth hateful. Politicians lie all the time just to get that vote. They claim to serve the people but nothing is farther from the truth. The state of the economy is not good at all. People are sad and depressed. To keep the masses sedated and happy we are bombarded with entertainment. We are being taught to love pleasure just like 2 Timothy 3:4 mentioned. Then there’s war, a big money-making machine. Wars are everywhere and they seem to never end. Consumption has been our most coveted past time. We buy things that we don’t need and spend money we don’t have. People always think they’re lacking not because they don’t have it but because they’re not satisfied with what they have. “You gotta have that latest and greatest bling you know.” As soon as the novelty wears out you find yourself feeling empty. So what you do to ease that craving? Find out what the world has to offer but in the end you still […]
Almost all of us dreaded to be homeless. I’ve never meet or hear anyone today that became one for the sake of the gospel. And yet that was exactly the situation of Paul and the followers of Christ. 1Corinhtians 4:11 says, “To this present hour we are both hungry and thirsty, and are poorly clothed, and are roughly treated and are homeless.” You could read the rest of the verses. It didn’t get better at all.
Things were a lot easier when you were young. You don’t have to work, no bills to pay, all you worry about is your education and how the kids in school treats you. That, and having to deal with your nagging parents, if only they could understand you. Trust me they’re saying to themselves too, if you could only understand […]
I have a confession to make. I haven’t been to church regularly. Part of it just mere laziness, listening to the same message over and over. Boredom. A mixture of discontentment toward God due to all the crazy things that’s going on in this world. Lastly, I couldn’t find a church that preach the truth straight from the Bible. To […]
Unconditional love? Is there such a thing? Could you love someone who doesn’t love you back? Would that be the epitome of what perfect love is. If God loves is unconditional, why would he send someone to hell for not obeying him. I hear that all the time. Things like, “What kind of God is that, if you don’t do […]
A lot of people dreaded to live in underdeveloped countries. Western countries has a far better living standards and opportunities. Living here in the States and the Philippines is such a big difference. Here, everything is fast pace and over there is laid back. Each place has its own advantages and disadvantages. We are so busy trying to caught up […]
My daughter told me recently that she’s bored watching tv and playing on her tablet. I wanted to find some activity that doesn’t use electricity and where the whole family could play together. It is disheartening to see today that technology is destroying family bonding. Either you’ll see your son playing games in his room and daughter texting on the […]
Fear has never been so abundant this days. From conspiracy theories to bible prophecies. We are inundated by it everyday. You could do a search on you tube on how many of this so-called prophets and claims that God spoke to them. Remember Y2K, 2012 or whatever they come up with depending on the month which is base primarily on speculations. They would set dates that some event will happen. Only to wash their hands when said event didn’t come true. I am not here to mock or make fun of such individual, rather to examine our hearts. To ask our selves what really the motivation behind. Is it to bring glory to Him or to gain recognition? Is it monetary? Only God knows the heart. Deuteronomy 18:22 says, “When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.” (NASB) We become obsess with it that we share and preach God’s word through fear instead of sound doctrine, love and kindness. Do we want to be love because of fear? I certainly don’t want to. That’s not love at all. 2 Timothy 1:7 says,“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”(NASB) It replaces the […]
