Fairytales

We live in a fairytale world of wonder and tragedy, where darkness is pitted against starlight and battles between good and evil happen everyday. Every day is a fight between love and hate, joy and despair, life and death. Every day is a fight to hope. Yet for all the twists and turns, for all […]

How to Pursue Your Boaz (Like Ruth Did!)

Is there anyone here not familiar with the story of Ruth? So often cited in Christian circles as justification why women can make the first move, we look at her story with profound interest. I’ve always been intrigued by the lives of the women mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus and every time, I find […]

The 2018 New Year Post

Prayer and fasting week just ended yesterday and I was pondering on how God answered all my prayers from the previous year – and how, in a sense, He didn’t. My ultimate prayer has always been that His will be done in my life, followed by bullet points of specific wants and requests that I […]

Christmas is Here. The Promise Still Isn’t.

I love Christmas. I just have to get that out there. I’m the wide-eyed girl who squeals when Christmas songs start playing in the malls, lighting up even brighter than the Christmas lights that surround her. Filipinos normally begin their countdown around September. I have my decorations up by September, but start the countdown around […]

Sabi Nila, Wag Umasa

Sabi nila wag ako masyadong umasa kasi wala naman talagang kakapitan, ano nga naman ang pwedeng panghawakan. Sabi nila wag ako masyadong umasa kasi sakit ang kahihinatnan at ayaw lang naman nila ako makitang masaktan. Sabi nila wag ako masyadong umasa. Siguro, kung aasa, yung konti lang, yung sakto lang, yung naglalaro sa linya, sa […]

My Best Yes

I don’t really know what to say when people ask me where I’m at in my life right now so I simply answer, “in between.” But really, what does that even mean? Earlier this year, God gave me a vision of being pulled out from where I was and being placed in a new land, […]

Men, You Are God’s Gift to Women.

I’m not talking about the guy who arrogantly flaunts and flirts and personally tags himself as God’s gift to women. (Hi. If that’s you, I’m telling you straight up: you’re probably not, actually. Sorry). I’m talking about you who care so much about Biblical manhood that you’d invest time and money into learning how you can […]

You Deserve More Than Secondhand Love

To be honest, from the moment this blog blew up back in 2015, this has been one of the things I have always wanted to say. This was something I constantly expressed to my friends, but somehow had a difficult time putting it into words considering how ironic it would be to come from someone […]

Break.

"It's okay. Break. It's okay to break. It's okay to be broken." How many times do we have to tell ourselves that our brokenness is forgivable? This, this is one of the greatest things He has taught me. That we can be undone, and it's completely okay. Some pain could be self-inflicted. Some pain could […]
