:1 – O Lord, how long will you forget me? Forever? How long will you look the other way? :2 – How long must I struggle with anguish in my soul, with sorrow in my heart everyday?
:6 – I am worn from sobbing. Every night tears drench my bed; my pillow is wet from weeping. :7 – My vision is blurred by grief; my eyes are worn out because of all my enemies.
This world is full of bad things. No doubt about it. We asked God if He is such a good God why does He let it happen. Doesn’t He care? When it happens to us directly we get shaken and risk losing our faith, causing us to rebel and abandon our faith completely. We are worse now than before He found us. Reminds me of an event in Luke 11:24-26: “When an evil spirit leaves a person, it goes into the desert, searching for rest. But when it finds none, it says, ‘I will return to the person I came from.’ So it returns and finds that its former home is all swept and clean. Then the spirit finds seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they all enter the person and live there. And so that person is worse than before.” The Bible is literally filled with bad things happening to good people. We are not even comparable to their faith. Why did they endure such things? For one thing, they believe with all their heart and might added with insurmountable amount of faith. Second, they weren’t doing it merely for the merit or rewards but out of love, for the sake of their relationship between God and them. I could say that was one of the stumbling block that I had in my Christian life doing the things that God commands me to do in exchange of […]
Three most dangerous words. What is it that comes to your mind when I say this. You might be surprise that it is not what you think it is. I will give you a clue. It’s not something that could get you punch in the face or be thrown in jail. It’s not something that could ruin your career or mire your reputation. It’s not something that you could say to your spouse in which you’ll end up sleeping on the couch tonight or worse outside of the house. It’s worse than that. When you say these words, you’re allowing the other person to venture into your soul rather than staring at your body. It is the epitome of complete surrender. Knowing that the individual could betray you, hurt you, at any given time. But you don’t think of that because you know in your heart the moment you say those three words, it’s more than saying I trust you, it’s surrendering all of you, letting someone through the window of your eyes and venture deep into your soul. You are at work, he is a at work. You are at home and she has to travel far afar. Both of you would think,”I wonder what my honey is doing now?” Is she just working or is he flirting around? But you wouldn’t think that because he gave you his three words and she gave hers too. But life has […]
I am by no means a professional in the medical field nor I am implying a medical advise. Always seek professional help from trained medical professional and your clergy. We all have all our fears. Depending on one’s perspective it could be either destructive or constructive. I would like to talk about the first. Fear is a natural human response. […]
:2 – I pour out my complaints before him and tell him all my troubles. :3 – For I am overwhelmed.. :4 – I look for someone to come and help me, but no one gives me a passing thought! No one will help me; no one cares a bit what happens to me.
A Christian’s life is a series of battles. Sometimes you win, other times you lose and sometimes a draw. We wage a battle not physically but spiritually, not against flesh and blood but against unseen things (Ephesians 6:12). Whether it be the war within ourselves or the battle to make our own choices, the word of God is clear how we are going to defend our selves. He equipped us completely like a soldier or a warrior going to battle (Ephesians 6:13-17). It is easy to get confuse when it comes to different bible versions. We have the King James, New International, New American Standard Bible, etc. So which one? I started out on New International Version , then to King James Version when I attended a Baptist church. There was a time where I became a King James Version only guy. “The other versions are just corrupted”, so I said to myself. That’s why sometimes you hear the saying, “King James cult”. I am not hear to demean other versions. Rather to show you which sword you should pick since the word of God is our sword (Ephesians 6:17). Currently I am using the New Living Translation. Again, I am not here to sell and promote a specific version. Ever since I used this version, everything is more clear to me. The fruit I am producing is abounding. This blog and it’s words are one of its fruits. If […]

When you were born I was there I saw the joy in your mother’s eyes while you cry And she held you the first time in her arms She was in pain while she delivered you As soon as you came out that pain turned into overflowing joy I watch you as you began to grow Words muted, speaking and walking barely As seasons passes they become more clear You limp, then start walking, couldn’t stop talking, questioning everything Next time I know you are running, jumping Eager to learn what kind of world you are in Your parents could barely keep up with you I have high expectations for you Sure this fellow must be different Innocent and what is better than having a child’s heart That is the kind of heart that’ll listen and obey Him That is the kind of heart that knows no doubting Behold it’s your first day in school Nervous, afraid but you got through all of it Seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years Has gone by everything seemed like yesterday The moment you have a taste of the world has to offer you The heart of a child is no more You’ve turn into something I never expected You’ve become prideful, you’ve hurt countless people With your tongue you deceived many You’ve gain riches and amass power Through oppression, repression and deception You considered yourself a god How I was disappointed in […]
A drop of blood fell on a dust But the dust didn’t know It was done out of love The dust keep choosing A lifestyle of lust The drop of blood didn’t stop It doesn’t matter if the dust went bust Then the dust got lost In the sea of lust The lust have swept Unto its heart It thrust its might Till there is no light But the drop of blood didn’t stop What started as drops Now it’s trickling It was trickling Now it’s pouring Drowning out the sea of lust It is the only one That could save the dust The dust stood up It says Now I know this is the Sea of love
