create in me a new heart and renew a steadfast spirit within me

The dark’s no enemy. Even in darkness it is God whose hand is leading you, God whose right hand holds you. Be still. Be very still, and listen. Silence your hectic mind. The night itself is made for the lonely, for the Spirit breathes in silences and in the dark…Make little of yourself, and nothing of all your need. Sleep is the self gone small, and the Lord shall swell around you…Thou art a grain of sand, and God the sea. Rest in a refuge and in a bosom of strength.
i remember a whisper in my heart telling me this six years ago and He was right.
9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. ” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

“Nothing worth having comes easy.”
Yesterday at xy’s birthday party, Mark asked me if I’d already gotten “her” to say “yes”.
Without blinking i replied, ” Is getting her “yes” the only goal in courtship Can’t it not be “to love even without expecting any in return?”
I know i sound old fashioned and maybe it’s just me, growing up to my parents love story being shared at the dinner table, but I thought about mark’s question all day on my commute home to QC from Makati. Over the years, I’ve learned that although I can, I now choose not to compel someone to love me back. I’ve grown tired of the “You-owe-me” relationship trend reverberating today. I guess that’s the reason i ended up buying this shirt. Perhaps, seeing this shirt, it helps me remind myself that her “yes” is, indeed, worth having and thus will not come easily.
I am happy and I thank God for the truth of his word where I can, at least, try to love like He does, selflessly and unconditionally. Where, even though I may not receive her precious “yes”, I know I will have loved her the way she deserves to be loved, with all that I am.
i know You’re watching over me.

I just read a part of apostle paul’s letter to the Corinthians about the church being the body. Its saddens me to find that some choose to be the anal sphincter that hold tight to and only spew out the unessentials.

Got a set of weights (17.5lbs each) at greenhills. The first of many investments in personal health/strength training. :)
Don’t just pray and hope for change, submit to discipline and work toward that change.

THe view at my cousin’s office where he let me crash to review/sleep over ‘till the board exams.
He said not to worry about commuting to the exam venue ‘coz he’s going to tell his company’s driver be my service. Thank God for the awesome favor!
Is experiencing the “BE A BLESSING” butterfly effect, :) where a tiny ripple of kindness, that you create, may come around and hit you like a tidal wave.
Your Love is new every morning.
Get broken or Be broken.
The first is a consequence of ignorance.
the latter is wise humility.
Ignore your brokenness now until it is excruciatingly unbearable or
admit your brokenness now and be on the road to healing.
Both paths are painful. Those who choose the first are brave; brave but unwise.
To admit one’s brokenness isn’t surrendering TO weakness but, rather, surrendering IN weakness, So that His power may be made perfect in those who seek- in brokenness.
I was asked, “How’s your love life?” I smiled and replied “silent, but the beautiful thing about that word: it’s letters also spell the word ‘Listen’.
