2 Corinthians 3:18 – King James Version (KJV)
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
I am a believer. The things seen are just temporary and will fade away. I choose to fix my eyes to things unseen which are eternal.
Life just keeps on getting better. No matter what circumstances we are in right now, everything will change. The fire will only refine us. Just hold on and continue to dream. Tests will just qualify us to better things. Dream big, dream bigger dreams, for He who promised is faithful.
Father God in Heaven,
Teach me how to love like you.
Teach him how to love like you.
Teach me how to love him the way you want him to be loved.
Teach him how to love me the way you want me to be loved… and
Teach us to love you above all.
If one’s heart and soul are for the only one… I believe no matter the time and space, You will make a way for them to find each other again.
I came across Ms. Juanita Bynum. She’s considered a great minister and has been called a prophetess. But one thing that struck and affected my soul while browsing through mementos of her was this song she made.
I don’t mind waiting.
It is true that waiting would be one of the most difficult lessons one has to learn. It involves silence and stillness, which will bring forth inexplicable faith and peace as we learn to just surrender to the One asking us to wait.
Painful at times, you don’t know what to do or where to go next. But waiting teaches us a sense of calmness amidst confusion.
Waiting teaches us to trust Him. He knows what to do and how to do it. All He asks of us is to trust in His impeccable judgment because everything He does it out of Love.
Therefore, I don’t mind waiting.
But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31 NKJV)
I used to wonder why people need to grow up, get their own life and move out of the house.
It was Christmas yesterday. I was just hanging out with my nephews watching cartoons… but the five of us in my family were all silently waiting, downplaying the expecations on the main event of the occasion. Scrabble. We waited for my baby brother (22 yrs. old) and the game began.
We have always been a typical low profile family. Simple but happy. As we picked out the tiles of letters from the green bag which came with the entire game set, priceless smiles and laughters echoed not just at the dining table but in our hearts and souls. I will always cherish these kinds of moments with my mom, dad, older sister and younger brother. The night was perfect.
I pray that when I spend Christmas with my own family, a loving husband and smart and healthy kids, I pray that the same love will fill the room of our kitchen. I pray for the same love passed on by my parents to us, so that my future son and daughter will see that invincible legacy their grandparents handed over to us… and pass it forward to the generations to come.
I thank God for sending the epitome of LOVE to humanity.
We will always celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
