This past week I was bombarded with friends and co-workers trying to hook me up with a lady that recently started at my work. “Why don’t you go out with her, she’s single. We just want you to be happy.” Then the teasing follows, “Oh you look good together.” To make it even more interesting, this lady that they’re trying […]
Ever since I got divorce I’ve always been ask if I already found a girlfriend. Both off and on work even on social media. Sometimes I get tired of hearing it and I do understand what my friends and family are doing for me and I appreciate that they care about my happiness. For those who is going through divorce and just got divorce. There’s hope for you. I don’t have a magic pill that I could give you to take the pain away. Neither a time machine for you to go back in time so that you could change things. Nor a helmet you could put on your head so that you could wipe those memories that are too painful to bear. What I do have is my own experience and by sharing it, I hope that it would encourage you because I’ve been there too. Take your time grieving, do not rush it. Never ever get into relationships – not until you’re fully healed and if you insist, I’ll tell you this it’ll be your first biggest mistake. What you’re doing is finding someone to fill that void and emptiness which makes you very vulnerable and some people will take advantage of that leaving you hurt again. If you have to cry, cry your heart out, it applies to men as well, there’s no shame to that. It proves that your human as everyone else. Do not rush […]
In this post I’ll be talking about a controversial subject, tithing. I’ve heard all the arguments on both sides. I am writing this not to incite division or confusion. I’ve been pondering and praying about it for two weeks whether I should go on ahead. I didn’t want to write about it, I don’t like to talk about subjects that’s […]
“You know what your problem is? You are too nice!” I often hear that more than enough from friends, families and associates especially the time when my past marriage was on its downward spiral. Like a plane without a pilot plunging towards the bottom of the sea, or a ship without its skipper running aground and hitting a big rock. […]
My heart is sick, withered like grass, and I have lost my appetite. Because of my groaning, I am reduced to skin and bones.
This morning I went grocery shopping. I rode my bike instead of using my car. Where I live is mostly rolling hills, sometimes it takes a lot of pedaling to reach at the top, while going down doesn’t take any effort at all. While pedaling up hill in the sweltering heat with the extra weight from the groceries I bought, […]
When I pick up this book, I didn’t know what to expect. Would it be the same like the other books that I reviewed here before? That’s exactly what I thought, another book filled with encouragement, and life lessons. This one talks about your relationship with God. There’s a good amount of Christians who thought that once you established a […]
Looking back on life, the best times have been when I was younger. The only worry is playing with friends, homework, school, bullies and staying out of your parents righteous anger. Getting older things got a more complicated. I’ve listened to kids, youngsters, and teenagers vent their angst. It is really petrifying when they say, “The struggle is real,” a […]
You don’t let me sleep, I am too distressed even to pray!
Like most individual I tend to run away from my problems. Instead of facing them, making excuses in my mind hoping that they’ll magically disappear or fix themselves. Postponing every chance I get, but it still there, not going away and the more I prolong ignoring it the more it becomes worse. Imagine a windshield wiper that is starting to worn out , that squeaky annoying noise. Then you wait until it’s totally worn out. You check the weather that day, sunny and clear skies. Out of nowhere a thunderstorm is brewing. The rain is so heavy that you could barely see the road. You realize you should’ve have change your wipers sooner, now you can’t see, you slow down, hoping and praying that you won’t get into a wreck. Weathers are unpredictable so is life. It is full of surprises. Today you’re up, later you’re down. Everything’s going well in your relationship, suddenly out of nowhere your love one wants to break up with you, on a text message! Nothing is certain. Trouble has always been brewing ever since the creation. It doesn’t discriminate, it could care less how old you are or what status in life you are in. Even the righteous individuals in the Bible have more than their fair share. Talking about fairness, and yet they pulled through it due to the fact that they have that power of choice. When we are beat down, we […]
