Thoughts blown from a life of faith.

This blog is an attempt to encapsulate in words God's amazing-ness! And what He has been doing in my life as an overflow of His great love for us. Hopefully, you'll let Him do the same for you. =)

Deja vu

Yesterday, we celebrated (or at least here in the Philippines), the American Independence day. For whatever reason God has, He also gave me the opportunity to celebrate my own kind of Independence Day.


The following were written some 4 years ago.
Funny how it still is just so applicable now.

"Rainy Tuesday (Thursday)"
"I just realized that we need rainy days. Aside from the fact that we need water for our daily needs, the rain seems to awaken those feelings that we've kept in the deepest part of our hearts.

On one hand, the rain may cause destruction if there is too much. But maybe that is what we sometimes need. To be destroyed into tiny pieces, so we can be rebuilt again.

That along with the rain, we let all the hurt and pain be washed away. Let's not forget, that the most beautiful rainbows, always come after the biggest rains."


"What hurts the most, was being so close."

There are certain things in life that we cannot avoid. Pain is definitely one of them.
We open ourself either intentionally or not to the possibility of getting hurt.
Whether it be physical pain, or emotional pain, being human has its risks.

I've once upon a time wondered whether animals knew any pain.
I'm guessing they do, when they are hurt physically, but would they also come to know what
and how emotional pain feels like.

I'll tell you what it's like. It's like being run over by a truck, and then you're shattered to tiny pieces. Yet each piece, feels the same amount of pain. But i guess everyone is to experience different levels and gravity of pain.

Opening yourself to the possibility of getting hurt is one of the most noble things that anyone can do. You know that there is that chance that things will not turn out to be a happy ending. Yet you go through with it, allowing yourself to get involved and investing emotions that you know no matter what can never be taken back or undone.

For what it's worth, you go through with it. Laying caution to the wind. Never mind if your mind tells you otherwise. I guess that's why the brain is on top of our head, it has a better foresight of things that will happen. And the heart? It's trapped inside a cage of bones which seemingly and obviously try to protect it, since "from the heart springs off the well of life." And which also makes it impossible for our heart to see clearly, as its view is obstructed by those that try to protect it.

What hurts the most was being so close.

There are things that we will never know. And never have. As hard as it is to accept that fact, we must. In order to survive. To survive despite the pain that tries to overcome us.

7 Oh, let me warn you, sisters in Jerusalem,
by the gazelles, yes, by all the wild deer:
Don't excite love, don't stir it up,
until the time is ripe—and you're ready.

Song of Solomon 2:7 [The Message]
