La vita est bella

Life is beautiful in the presence of God

Dear Satan, 
FIRST of all, you have no idea that I will write you this letter. You didn’t see this coming, why? because you’re not like my Savior Jesus Christ who knows my every thoughts & my heart from the inside out. Poor you, you can only feed thoughts in my head and not read my mind. Your only hope is if I bite back, and I have to admit.. I do, sometimes. But that’s okay.
I purposely wanted for you to read this. As God as my witness and my other fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, I will express what I feel about you, why? So that we can all stand against you and your lame deceiving lies.
SECOND I want you to know that I HATE you and the evil that you bring.
I know.. hate’s a pretty strong word. But Scriptures says:

Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. - Romans 12:9

I think it’s safe for me to say ‘Satan you’re evil therefore I HATE you.’ I know I’m commanded to love my neighbor and my enemys. But Obviously you’re not human so you’re definitely not my neighbor. So just to make things clear, you are an enemy & you’re evil, therefore I shall hate you because you are evil.
LAST thing, before I continue with this last thought, I have to warn you, I don’t think you wanna read this last part, Because I know you’ve read this part from somewhere, I think it’s the last book of the bible called REVELATION.. and I don’t think you wanna be reminded of what I’m about to say, But I will do it anyway.
As much as I fall for your lies, and deceiving ways, and the thoughts that you put in my head, and how some days I stumble, I want you to know that..
YOU HAVE NO POWER OVER ME!
You know who has power over you? Jesus Christ. He died on the Cross and He rose from the grave proving that He is fully human and fully God. He paid for my sins (past, present & future) I’ve been bought and redeemed by His precious blood. He owns me, you don’t.
Did I forget to mention that He is The Ultimate and Righteous Judge. The One who will judge the living and the dead.. that includes you.
I hope you’re trembling with fear right now.. you should be, by being reminded by this. Because I know, and you know, WE ALL KNOW, that at the very end of this life, it says in Revelation, that you Satan,

who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where him and his angels had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever. - Rev 20:10

I may fall from your dark schemes and lies from time to time, but that won’t stop me from Loving and following God. I will strive to stand against you by the power of the Holy Spirit that’s living inside of me.
At the end of the day, that’s all you can do, tempt me. Lie to me. hoping you can stray me away from God and drag me down to hell with you? That’s not gonna fly with me. My best advice for you is enjoy and have fun on what you’re doing now, because when ‘this’ all over, I don’t think you’ll enjoy being tormented in HELL.

In the depths of longing..

Love , can’t you see I’m alone
Can’t you give this fool a chance
A little love is all I ask
A little kindness in the night
Please don’t leave me behind
No , don’t tell me love is blind
A little love is all I ask
And that is all
Ooh love , I’ve been searchin’ so long
I’ve been searchin’ high and low
And little love is all I ask
A little sadness when you go
Maybe you’ll need a friend
Only please don’t let’s pretend
A little love is all I ask
And that is all
** I wanna spread my wings
But I just can’t fly
As a string of pearls
The pretty girls go sailin’ by
## Ocean deep
I’m so afraid to show my feelings
I have sailed a million ceilings
Solitary room

Ocean deep
Will I ever find a lover
Maybe he has found another
And as I cry myself to sleep
I know this love of mine I’ll keep
Ocean deep
Now , can’t you hear when I call
Can’t you hear the word I say
A little love is all I ask
A little feelin’ when we touch
Why am I still alone
I’ve got a heart without a home
A little love is all I ask
And that is all

This photo reminds me of my memorable days in Kish. It was in Zaffran Restaurant after our daily service when we noticed this sheep lying helplessly, perhaps anticipating for his upcoming fate. In a little while He was slaughtered and  what amazes me was the fact that Sheep when killed never make a noise, silent while being cut off. 

Then, I remember, Jesus Christ who is the Lamb of God. As He was delivered to his enemy to be mocked, flogged and killed. He never say a word. He willingly offered Himself as a sacrifice for the forgiveness of our sins.

" He was treated harshly and afflicted, but he did not even open his mouth. Like a lamb led to the slaughtering block, like a sheep silent before her shearers, he did not even open his mouth. -Isaiah 53:7

Ten Daily Reminders

2. Be honest. Know your weaknesses and trust God to bridge the gaps. Recognize your gifts and talents, not your own ability. Be eager to receive in love when truth is spoken to you. Wrap the feedback you give in tenderness. (Colossians 3:9-10)
3. Take responsibility. Look in the mirror, not out of the window when things go wrong. Be quick to apologize and seek forgiveness. Own what do and do well what you own. (2 Peter 1:10)

I long to be loved and I long to be wanted. I have this hole in my heart that is hungry to be filled. For many years have passed, I have never met anyone worthy filling the emptiness. Though temporarily yes, but the cycle is still the same. Hello love today, Goodbye love tomorrow.
Is there anyone worthy to fill our emptiness?a hole in our hearts that searching and seeking for something you cannot explain?
Certainly yes. By having an intimate relationship with Christ. A guy’s feelings for a girl may change but Christ’s love for us will always be the same today, yesterday and tomorrow. He is the only one who can turn our emptiness into complete happiness. Perhaps the hole in each persons heart is meant to be filled by the only one supreme being and that is God. His love is complete, perfect and full. He is our only TRUE LOVE.
As it is written:
Matt. 6:33 ” Seek ye first thy kingdom of God and His righteousness and all this things shall be added unto you”.
Shalom!

Love, simply amazing.

I’ve been to many relationships in the past (I will not going to mention how many I can only count on with my fingers) and every time I had my break-ups I always look up to heaven and says: ” Someone will come, better than him”. And I have been doing that for years. However, the recent heartaches I had made me hate the clingy-romance-sweet-love bf/gf thingy. 

Not until I understand that there’s more to life than love affair with your opposite kind. For I live and learn to love because God first loved me and through His son Jesus Christ who died on the Cross as atoning sacrifice for my sins. To our sins. 

Amazing Love, Indeed!I couldn’t ask for more.

Ten years ago, I asked God I want to meet my man in the midst of my longing, in a beautiful Island under the heat of the sun. He’s alone and so am I and find each other as God directed us to be. 

The very reason why I take several minutes sitting and spending alone on the shores waiting and waiting cause I know God will answer my longtime prayer.. In His perfect time.

What took me so long?

What hindrances could it be that took me so so long posting for my next entry blog. Well, a lot of things had happened beginning the month of October last year up to this very day and hour. I will not go in to details but here’s the short lists:


October: Breaking up with Bf (which is now my ex).

November: Emotionally distressed and spiritually confused, Finding new job

December: Spiritual battlefield and over-worked plus lots of stress mostly job related.

January- End of contract from my previous employer.

February- Part time nanny, work as trainee in a hospital where my patience and perseverance was tested.

March- Battle with my former employer, and exit to Kish Island.

And the rest, was a History…

As I came to know God and his love for me as His child and precious creation. Everything happens for a reason and every trials I have faced, I endured.”His strength is made perfect in my weakness”. Thank you Lord!!!
