para sayo, paano mo mahihikayat yung isang tao na may Diyos, na nageexist talaga siya? - Anonymous

you dont actually have to persuade them to believe. You don’t need to have an intellectual battle with them. You don’t have to feed them the entire bible and please them to believe, why? IT WILL ONLY CREATE ARGUMENT, CHAOS, MISUNDERSTANDINGS and whatsoever. You know whats the secret way for them to?

your testimony. show them your life, who you were before you met Him and who you are now with God in your life. But its not a guarantee that all people will approve of you and with your God. we are still on earth sweetie, remember that. secondly, just love them, love those people regardless of their belief. And never debate, ang katotohanan hindi dapat pinagtatalunan, dahil ang katotohanan mananatiling katotohanan :)

In short, kung gusto mo silang maniwala na may God, dapat makita nila yun sa buhay o puso na meron ka :)

congratulations for the new love life :) - Anonymous

Thank you! ;)

You’re afraid, because someone finally learned to love you more.

Most of the time you don’t need to make too much effort to make people like you. You don’t need to work in order to be recognized. You don’t need to be dependent on your capabilities to touch other people and wait them to love you back. There’s no such a requirement in order for you to be accepted. What you only need is to be yourself, love people, and be not a people-pleaser. Trying to please people is tiring, the works you’ve done will eventually bury you broken, but when you become true to yourself and just love people regardless of what they are to you, eventually this love you’ve planted in their hearts will bear fruits. Unknowingly, you will just see yourself being loved by so many.

I no longer feel broken by the abandonment and betrayal I have endured in the past. I could wake up feel detached from the nightmare I went through. The tears of pain replaced with a joy of my new journey. I could feel my heart’s excitement of having new people and new memories to be created. I can look back in the past and just smile, remembering how I won the battle of forgiving those people who hurt and left me, and forgetting the pain it brought me, how it ripped my heart into a million pieces. I must admit, that memory is so real, it could still drown me in if I let myself be drowned, but the good thing is I know the door way out before that happens. I’ve already won, so I know the way not to feel defeated when I try to look back again. But the memory is so real in a way I feel like at any moment someone isn’t exempted to those people who are capable of hurting me, abandoning me and betraying me. I feel like at any moment someone will walk out the door of my life and then wake the painful emotions up that killed me yesterday.

some days when you don’t want to be strong, you just wanted to be held and told “I’ll take care of you, you’ll not be facing this alone” and then hug you from your back, kiss the curve of your cheek and jaw, and let you slumber in his comfort.

Some days were a blur when the feeling of a complete isolation overwhelms you. You just want to spend nights crying yet holding on. You know that this feeling won’t reside in you for long, that this feeling will pass away as soon as you go to bed and welcome the morning with a brighter countenance. But for now, you just want to cry, hate your feeling, and tell God, you’re hurting. You’re hurting and He’s the only one you rely on for healing.

But it was Jesus who taught me there was nothing I could really lose if I had Him. He taught me to be palms up, just like He was. Palms up means you have nothing to hide and nothing to gain or lose. Palms up means you are strong enough to be vulnerable, even with your enemies. Even when you have been tremendously wronged. Jesus was palms up, to the end.

People say to you, ‘you’ve changed’, or something like that, well, I hope, for the sake of God that you have changed, because I don’t want to be the same person all my life. I want to be growing, I want to be expanding. I want to be changing. Because animate things change, inanimate things don’t change. Dead things don’t change. And the heart should be alive, it should be changing, it should be moving, it should be growing, its knowledge should be expanding.

I want to meet and talk to people who desperately want to end their lives by committing suicide, because you know, I was one of them before, and now I know the solution, I want to be able to reach their hand and help them to see the light.

How can the right person come and start filling your heart with love, if your heart is still beating for the past, if your heart still filled with hatred, anger, unforgiveness and fears. Empty your heart from the darkest page of your life, because it’s the start to move on to the next page. Time to give up your pen to God and let Him be the author of your story. It’s the start to drop down the baggage of your past, walk with empty handed and start your new journey with your past in the past and your eyes focus on the driver, so then God could start filling it with new ones that will bring joy, happiness and peace in your heart.

Don’t be kind to other people just for approval, because eventually you’ll get tired, rather do it because you love your God and you want to make him happy by extending his kindness and love for his people through you.

One of the most
painful pictures
stuck in my head
was the one I had
no longer seen the
sweet curve on his face,
but the back,
I used to hug,
walking away from me
with no turning back.
