I had Beyonce’s Smash Into You on repeat since yesterday and I think the repeat button will be hating me for the next few days (hehe). If there’s love at first sight, for me, there’s love at first note.But what made me really fall was this part of the song:
I find myself in love racing the Earth
And I’m soaked in your love
And love was right in my path, in my grasp…
I wanna run and smash into you.
This words reminds me of how I felt the moment I knew who Jesus is in my life.
Before knowing Him, I thought He was so far away but when I believe in His truth I have learned that He had been with me all along and that He already love me even before I was born.So when I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior I just want to run to Him and be SMASHED in His love everyday because only in Him I am truly saved. As the Psalmist said “My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him.”
This would be forever my favorite verse. :)
God – the greatest lover
so loved – the greatest degree
the world – the greatest company
that He gave – the greatest act
His only begotten Son – the greatest gift
that whoever believes – the greatest simplicity
in Him – the greatest person
should not perish – the greatest promise
but – the greatest difference
have – the greatest certainty
everlasting life – the greatest possession
“That mini-heart attack whenever you couldn’t find your phone in your bag”, I read this in my twitter timeline and I couldn’t help but smile. It’s pretty funny because it happens to me all the time. I was reminded of this while reading Genesis Chapter 3 (The Fall of Man), I tried to imagine how Father God must have felt during that time? HE must have had a “massive-heart attack! And God never cease to amaze me because despite of what happened, HE was still the one who came for Adam and Eve and HE said to them “Where are you?”.
Good news is our Father is never changing. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. HE’s still the one calling for us. As for us, we haven’t change much since creation , we’re still hiding from HIM. We hid for we feel ashamed, unworthy, afraid but you know Jesus came to SEEK and to SAVE what was lost (Luke 19:10). This is another truth that we ought to know, that HE came into the world to save sinners (1 Timothy 1:15). We just have to let HIM find us.
“I was indeed a lost girl…until He found me”
I was reminded of these famous lines from the Adam Sandler movie Click while thinking of how much God loves us. Imagine yourself standing in front of HIM as you ask “Will you still love me in the morning?” and in a heartbeat HE answers you “Forever and Ever”. Wouldn’t it be the best feeling ever?!
Our Father is a faithful God and HIS love for us endures forever. That even if we are faithless and sinners He’ll still come for us and tirelessly pursue us.
One Pastor illustrate God’s love through another movie, The Vow. Leo faithfully pursued Page even though she could not remember him. And Page could not love him back because she could not remember how much Leo love her.
Sometimes, we are like Page, we forgot how much God loves us that we could not love HIM back. But the truth is we love because we were love first (1 John 4:19).The truth will set you free and knowing this truth has truly freed me!
Let’s be free! :)
The earth if full of HIS unfailing love…- Psalm 33:5
I was indeed a lost girl
I’ve been wandering restlessly
Until HE found me and saved me
HE have Loved me
Few years back…
Me: Tita, how old are you again?
Tita: I stopped counting after I turned 18.
Whenever I recall this conversation I had with my Tita few years ago I still find it funny. I thought it’s just a way of tita not revealing her age but as year after year add up to my age, I sometimes tend to lost track as well. :)
Being a NBSB at 23 my relatives seems to put pressure on me year after year…
Relative: How old are you already?
Relative: And you’re still single..
Relative: Maybe you’re too choosy.
Me: But I don’t even have any to choose from..
—————-END OF CONVERSATION————————-
As I posted previously, I used to love being inlove that I worry to much if someone’s out there for me. But after knowing Jesus more and growing in HIS love everyday, I have never been more confident that someone was created for me and just for me.
As the Bible say, Our Father knows what we need even before we ask HIM and everything will happen on HIS perfect time. As HE promised “Everything on earth has it’s own time and it’s own season.”
And as I patiently wait for that perfect moment I pray “Let all that I am wait quietly before GOD for my hope is in HIM. HIS will is my WILL.
I’ll see you on the same day you’ll see me
I’ll know you on the same day you’ll know me
HIS time will come I finally call you Day
After several futile calls and being explained to the same thing over and over again, someone from Globe Customer Service took time to listen carefully and know my concern. Finally! Globe was able to help me. I think I was also able to help her to help me. I explained what happened, what is happening and what I would like to happen and by doing that we were able to fix the issue. Unlike the first callback that I made with them I was an irate customer already and we were unable to resolve the issue.
I believe that whenever a customer calls any Customer Service/Support of any company THEY REALLY NEED HELP. No matter how big or small the issue they have, they need help. And it’s up to the person answering the phone call how things will turn out.
I used to hate my job and I honestly still don’t love it. However, I may not love what I do, I still truly value it. I believe I started to appreciate my job when I realized what it is to me. The work that I hated is my financial source to help the most valuable thing in my life, my Family.
When we value things, we do them properly. I think most of the people in the Call Center Industry haven’t understand yet the weight of their job to the company they represent. I really find it sad that many of the people in the industry can’t give a heart to the job that provides food on their table.
No, I am not a perfect employee. There are still days that I dread going to work, I still snap at difficult customers and I hate talking to racist customers. Whenever I have those customers, I just pray for GOD’s grace. I ask HIM for understanding and patience.
I remember a great life lesson I got from The Notebook. It was from Noah’s father, I could not remember that exact words but he taught Noah to work as much as he is paid for. He did what his father said and he was rewarded by his employer. And it’s fascinating to find the same lesson from the scripture, “ Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9)
Find value in what you do. :)
*In the spirit of Morning Rush( with Gino and Fran) Top 10 for today, I have also come up with a letter to my “Future”.
(Maala-ala mo kaya song cue)
WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG???!!!Haha, nah. I’m just kidding. I don’t even actually think you exist or if there’s really someone, somewhere out there for me. But once the day our paths finally cross and head to the same direction, I would really love to intertwine my fingers with yours.
You may need to be extra patient with me since no one really came before you and I’m a newbie to this kind of relationship.
I would love everyday I’ll have with you for I had been patiently waiting for the special days to arrive.
I might even cry sometimes due to happiness but I know you’ll know what the remedy would be. right?
A very BIG tight hug and a kiss in the forehead would do the trick.
I am really looking forward with our “kilig” moments together.
I can’t wait to walk with you hand in hand (at pa-sway-sway pa).
I love you.
I’ll see you on the same day you’ll see me
I’ll know you on the same day you’ll know me
“Above all else guard your heart…” Proverbs 4:23
“The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure…”Jeremiah 17:9
I loved the idea of being INLOVE. A friend once even told me that I am inlove with LOVE, who isn’t? Everyone wants to love and be loved.
I’m a NBSB but it doesn’t mean that I have not had my fair share of crying-my-self-to-sleep moments. I DID love the idea of being inlove that almost all the previous infatuation that I had have all been mistakenly taken as “LOVE” by the Drama Queen me.
I’ve always followed my heart because it feels so right even if it doesn’t seem right or logical anymore that I end up hurting myself.
What I should had been doing all along is seek HIS will. As GOD had commanded we should guard our hearts above all else. Fragile it may seem but our hearts are deceitful above all things and beyond cure.
Follow your heart by seeking GOD’s will.
“Delight yourself in the LORD and He will give you the desires of your heart”
I wanted to fly
I wanted to spread my wings
and fly as high and far as I can
I wanted to run
I wanted to move my legs fast
until I could no longer feel the ground
But everytime I feel like flying and running away
HE’d be coming, welcoming me in HIS arms
HE who’d always been so faithful even when I’m faithless
HE who’d do anything to make me feel HIS love
Every stumble that I make, HE’LL come to hold me up
and stand me firmly to the ground
