Alone for Valentine's Day? Do Not Fret!

In my own opinion, young people (or shall I say the millennials) nowadays are so concerned about their "status". They tend to fret if they are single while their friends are "in a relationship". Some may settle for "no label" relationships just to have someone. I do not want to sound condemning or judgmental but I really hope and pray that these young individuals must seek what is beyond their current "status".

Jollibee, a famous fast food chain here in the Philippines, launched this year's Valentines video campaign. I think this is timely for the people who are seeking for love to reflect that they true happiness does not only come if you find a boyfriend or a girlfriend. True happiness comes from loving your self and from loving the people around you, your family.

Letters To God: An Inspiring Life Story

Last night, my cousin mentioned about "Letters To God" movie. Out of curiosity, I searched it on Google right away. I found out that it was a story of a young boy who's suffering from cancer and how he's life touched the lives of other people, young and adult.

I watched the movie immediately and as I expected I shed a bucket of tears. I was ashamed of myself. The boy in the movie had a great faith. I believe in God but often times I stumble and falter. No matter how hard I try to make the right things, I ended up as a loser. Hate overwhelmed me and I can't trust other people anymore. Maybe, I was traumatized and got tired of everything that I've been through. So after watching the movie, I examined myself. How much do I trust God? Have I given Him all that I have? I always pray to God and ask Him for guidance but most of the times, I'm doing the things my way. And that's because of lack of faith.

I admired the boy in the movie because of his outlook in life, the way he appreciated all the things that happened to him. The moral lesson that I got from "Letters to God" was this: We are all handpicked by God to act our special roles in this world. So we should not ask "why", instead we should us "how"....

Praying For A Miracle

In the past few weeks, something "big" happened in my life. I lost the love of my life. He's not dead, he just asked me to let him go and so I did. What would you do if the person you loved the most asked you to stop loving him? I panicked when I heard what he said over the phone. We've been together for almost 9 years. Even though we had sad times, we also had a lot of wonderful memories. In fact, we are planning to get married!

He had some reasons why he came up with that decision and I respect that even if it pained me so much. To those who happened to read this post, please pray with me. Let's pray for a miracle! I know that I don't have the power to override his decisions. But, I know that there is One who is holding our lives in His hands. I am just human but I have a powerful God who can make all things possible.

Yesterday, when I was about to give up. God provided a friend who can comfort me. During our conversation, my friend encouraged me to hold on and never give up. She said that all these things happened to test my faith in God. We prayed over Yahoo Messenger and we claimed the God's will will prevail in John and mine's life. At the end of our talk, I was feeling better. Praise God for sending help when I need one. Never say never when it comes to what God can do.

Join me as a pray for a miracle:

Father, in Jesus name, and by the power of the Holy Spirit.
I believe that you are able to do all things for us.
I know that you are a God of restoration!
And so, by faith I believe that You alone can restore mine and John's relationship in Jesus name!
I take your Word as an ultimate one, that when you say, it happens.
You said that we cast our burdens upon You...and I am casting it out to you Lord.
You said that if anyone comes to You, all our burdens will be light,
Lord, You said that if I believe that whatever I ask for in prayer, I shall receive it.
And again Lord I believe in Jesus name that...Your will be done upon mine & John's lives!
Lord, I pray also, that you enlighten my boyfriend.
And this time Lord, I believe that something is happening in his spirit and his heart, in Jesus name.
And Lord, what I have prayed right now will come to pass, it will be done according to Your Word. In Jesus mighty, great and sweet name. Amen!

For now, I'll be still and know that He is God.

Missing Someone ~ Vanilla Twilight

Being away from someone you love is not easy. It is true that you can still enjoy the beauty of life without them but life will be more meaningful when they are by your side. Life will continue to go on but you will always miss them. However, the moment you'll realize that they were already gone, you have no choice but to pick up the broken pieces. As you think of them, you'll be find the strength to live. Even though it hurts, believe the things will be better soon.

After the 40-minute phone call with my boyfriend, I realized that I terribly missed him. I was suddenly on an "emo" mode and kept wishing that he was here with me. I can totally relate with Owl City's Vanilla Twilight.

The stars lean down to kiss you
And I lay awake and miss you
Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere
'Cause I'll doze off safe and soundly
But I'll miss your arms around me
I'd send a postcard to you, dear
'Cause I wish you were here

I'll watch the night turn light blue
But it's not the same without you
Because it takes two to whisper quietly

The silence isn't so bad
'Til I look at my hands and feel sad
'Cause the spaces between my fingers
Are right where yours fit perfectly

I'll find repose in new ways
Though I haven't slept in two days
'Cause cold nostalgia chills me to the bone
But drenched in vanilla twilight
I'll sit on the front porch all night
Waist-deep in thought because when I think of you
I don't feel so alone

As many times as I blink I'll think of you tonight
I'll think of you tonight

When violet eyes get brighter
And heavy wings grow lighter
I'll taste the sky and feel alive again
And I'll forget the world that I knew
But I swear I won't forget you

Oh, if my voice could reach back through the past
I'd whisper in your ear,
"Oh darling, I wish you were here"
