Changes

Posted: September 7, 2014 in Uncategorized

Everything seems to be okay
All I’ve been thinking we are walking on the same way
You were exceptionally kind and gentle
But why it seems you have no one to settle?

Every single day of togetherness
Is slowly ending like a mess
The idea of starting new
Was left out of the blue

The feelings once loved and treasured
Why now came to an end and lost its beautiful gestures?
What pain could be more painful
Than a feeling became wasteful

Not all things seem to last
Even your kindness has to pass
And now that you’re happy with her
I was left alone and trying to be even better.

God’s forgiveness is beyond measure. Regardless of what are our sins or how many times we stumble and fall, His love never changes and still reserving those tons of patience and care for us. God’s mighty hands are always wide open to give the warmest embrace to His lost children.

If there’s one movie which made me believe about the power of love, it is LETTERS TO JULIET. This movie had shown what love can do through the age of time.

And let me share to you this beautiful and heart warming reply/letter of Sophie to Claire who almost lost the hope of seeing her one true love.

Dear Claire,

What and if are two words as nonthreatening as words can be. But put them together, side by side, and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life.

What if?
What if?
What if?

I donā€™t know how your story ended but if what you felt then was true love then itā€™s never too late. If it was true then, why wouldnā€™t it be true now? You only need the courage to follow your heart.

I donā€™t know what a love like Julietā€™s feels like, a love to leave loved ones for, a love to cross oceans for, but Iā€™d like to believe, if ever I were to feel it, that Iā€™d have the courage to seize it. And Claire if you didnā€™t, I hope one day that you will.

All my love,
Juliet

STOP BULLYING! START IT WITH YOURSELF!

We were destined to meet…Ā but were not meant with each other.

I just met you and never imagine to like you.
We never became close but we became friends.
I thought the story would end up like a happy friendship
But it never was….
My thoughts started to go against me…
ThisĀ crazy little thing called loveĀ Ā infected me…
It was really hard for me…Ā my own heart betrayed me.
I have nothing to do but to like you, even worse to love you.
I know that this feeling is not right from the very start…
butĀ my heart hadĀ chosen your heart to be its home.
I thought, being honest with my feelings would make me feel satisfy
but for the second time,Ā my heart go against me.
The feelings that onceĀ makes me happy,Ā has turned into something andĀ makes me lonely.
ButĀ I keep on believing in the magic of love...
That someday you would change your mind
That someday you would come and tell that your heart is mine…
But again, i never learned… i end upĀ crying and asking why!
Ā Why do some thingsĀ come and suddenly go?
Why do some peopleĀ makes you feel special and just leave you in the hole.
Why doĀ love makes you happy and suddenly makes you lonely?
Well, I guess this is how it really goes…
Love will never be according to our plans…
It has its own way, its own standards and its own magic.
We just need to believe that if love does not worked this time…
it will surely come and makes you rhyme.
Your presence was soĀ hard to find

From time to time, you areĀ swirling over my mind
When you areĀ in front of me
My words of love suddenly flee

Every time you came near
I can’t stop my heart to be in fear
Fear or loosing you
Fear of falling too

Your smile isĀ an innocent assassin
It kills my system again and againĀ 
Your poison slowly makes me faint-hearted
And hopelessly devoted

Why I couldĀ not resist your stare?
If you have nothing to spare
My mind keeps on saying “give it up”
But my heart insist “do not give up”

I don’t know what’s the matter with you
I just felt it out of the blue
You came in
And my heart welcomes you in

Now, I cannot let you go
You were the one who made me feel so
Just give me some glance
Or even an owe of chance

In the most limited time
I’ll do my best to make you mine
Let my love shine
And be in front of the line.

Ā 
It’s a clichĆ© we hear all the time, but what would it look like if we actually did it?
Imagine a typical day for a twentysomething Christian. She wakes up to her ringtone alarm, checks her email and notiļ¬cations and hitsĀ snooze. She utters a one-minute prayer to cover all her basesā€”thank You, bless this, ask for that, amenā€”and rushes to the shower.
By 9 a.m., she’s clocked into work at the office or heading to class, praying for the weekend to come sooner. During lunchtime, she meets with her friends while trying to steal some time to look at Facebook.
And from then until she hits the pillow, her day is ļ¬lled with meeting deadlines, doing chores and errands and generally trying to keep on top of things before another day is over.
Sound familiar?
Life is not easy for today’s generation. There’s too little time and too many tasks. We need to study, work, keep up on house chores, socialize and relax at the same time.The question is, where should we put God in the equation?

As Christians, we know at a head level that God should take ļ¬rst priority in our lives. He comes ļ¬rst, and everything else is secondary. And even thinking of Christ as a ā€œpriorityā€ doesn’t come close to the reality that He is Kingā€”over every detail of our daily lives. Yet how often is He our waking thought each morning? How often do we reach for our phones instead?

The virtual world is alluring. It claims to offer everything: pleasure, entertainment, education, socialization and even spiritual growth. At some point, though, we enter into information overload.

Everyone’s trying, begging, ļ¬ghting or pleading to get just 10 seconds of our attention, promising a valuable product, service or information in return.

Yet while each of these input channels ļ¬ghts for our attention in our overworked brains, so does God. But unlike them, God doesnā€™t remind us of His presence with an ad or a convenient notiļ¬cation. Heā€™s always there for us, but we have to decide to come to Him.

While technology has brought humanity to the next level, it has also altered our values. Emails and texts make our prayer lives more distracted. Endless facts and data make us more skeptical of truth. And when you can just pick up the phone and talk to a loved one in an instant, what’s the use of coming to God ļ¬rst?

In a fast-moving world, what grabs our attention is that which is faster, better and brighter. We are accustomed to instant answers and results. We are masters at multi-tasking, trying to get everything done in our own grand timing.

Why is it that itā€™s only when somethingā€™s gone wrongā€”or thereā€™s nothing else to doā€”that we ļ¬nally turn to God?

We might then wait for His answers, but not for long. Unconsciously, we give Him a deadline. Itā€™s difficult for us to put our faster-is-better mentality on hold while we wait for God’s guidance. The best time to do anything is now, so why waitā€”right?

More often, we expect God to mold into our own lives and schedules. It’s no longer us who need to adapt to His waysā€”it’s Him who needs to adapt to ours, we think.

The truth is, the virtual world would do just ļ¬ne without you. But you would not do just ļ¬ne without God. There will always be one more snippet of information to absorb online. But are there really harsh consequences for missing those updates? If weā€™re honest with ourselves, sometimes itā€™s easier to miss a weekā€™s worth of devotions, of time spent checking in with our heavenly Father and listening for His voice and guidance.

The digital world has enough news and opportunities to get anyone hooked. And it can be a great and wonderful thing within proper boundaries. But even when itā€™s not, we canā€™t blame technology for our spiritual neglect. If consulting God ļ¬rst is not in our daily agenda, even without Facebook and YouTube, we will simply ļ¬nd other things to tend ļ¬rst.

Perhaps itā€™s time we readjust our faith from turning to God when itā€™s convenient to recovering our lost fear of the Lord. We show Him we don’t fear Him every time we prioritize other things ļ¬rst.

So, how do we recover a lost fear of the Lord? By seeking Him. By intentionally pursuing Him ļ¬rst in our daily actionsā€”from the moment our alarm goes off until we fall asleep again. By praying and asking for His guidance not only when things go wrong, but on every occasion. By encountering Him through His Word and listening to how He wants us to live it every day.

God is not a back-up plan but the Planner of life itself. And as we slowly change our daily habits to recognize this, we will slowly reshape our priorities and recharge our faith.

They say when feelings are true, you find it really hard to tell. Well, I guess it is really true. I’ve been spending hours composing a letter for you. Something that would tell you what my feelings are. I almost cried reminiscing all the memories I had with you since I was a child. Those memories which always remind me of who I am today.

Mama, we may not have the best mother-daughter relationship ever, I still thank God for giving me a mother like you and I will always be thankful for that greatest gift of my life (Oh my tears are falling). We had a lot of misunderstandings especially when I was on my adolescence stage. Every time you stop me from playing outside, every time you would not allow me joiningĀ a camp or field trip, every time you just want me to study and study, I feltĀ like you do not love me. I know that those things were a mother’s way to protect her child which a young mind would not understand.

Mama, I want you to know that if it wasn’t because of you, your care, patience, sacrifices and unconditional love, I would not be who I am today. Forgive me for always questioning your love, I was blinded by the deceitful rewards of this world. Thank you for your constantĀ reminders whichĀ guided me throughout these years. You may be harsh with your words which sometimes I take negatively, Ā but I know it was just because of your motherly concern especially when you decided to work abroad. If that was hard for us, I know it was hard a thousand times for you…. thank you ma!

Ma, thank you for protecting me. Thank you for treating the wounds of failures and heartaches. Thank you for being my dayĀ and night shining armor when everyone drags me down to hell. Thank you for boldly broadcastingĀ the world how proud you areĀ in every achievement I have. Thanks for being my number one fan in every single thing I do. You are one in a million, mother!

Life would not be more beautiful without you in it. You gave color and flavor to this crazy world of mine. Ma, sorry for causing you heartaches way back then and if I continuouslyĀ do. Sorry for being stubborn in many ways, I just don’t understand how things go. Sorry for all my shortcomings as your daughter. I am trying my best, my very best to be a deserving one. I would not get weary making you happy and proud. I want to give you anything you deserve beyond all the material things in this world.

I really love writing poems since I was a kid. So, expect me to post hundreds of it ^.^

For this one, I wrote this poem way back in second year college. It is for theĀ person I really like as in super like. And sadly, heĀ never gave me a chance to be part of his circle. But that was a long time ago. I moved on and happy to see him loving the girl of her life :) #showbiz

So, Here it is!

Hindi ko alam kung ano ang tunay na nararamdaman ko
Hindi ko maipaliwanag kung masaya o malungkot ako
Hindi ko maintindihan kung bakit ako nagkakaganito
Pero alam kong may isang bagay na gumugulo sa isip ko
…Ā ikaw!
Dumating ka at nakilala kita
Dapat normal lang iyon pero bakit biglang may nag-iba?
Tibok ng puso ko ay nagbago
mabilis… sobrang bilis…
Nagsimulang guluhin nito ang payapa at kontento kong mundo
Natutunan nitong kilalanin ang iyong pagkatao
Hanggang sa piliin nito ang puso mo
Ikaw… oo ikaw! Ang nag-iisang ikaw!
Puso ko’y masaya ngunit isip ko ay natutulala
Gustong ibigin angĀ ikaw,Ā ngunit ikaw, nais mo bang ibigin angĀ ako?
Magulo, mahirap at masakit
Walang katiyakan ang lahat
Ngunit patuloy pa rin naniniwala ang puso’t isip ko sa kakaunting pag-asa na…
…ang isangĀ ikawĀ atĀ akoĀ ay magigingĀ tayo!
