On the Sea

Its 10pm. And here i am on the middle of the sea traveling by ferry. I let the wind swept my hair and brush my face, it was something i missed. The white waves that creates this soothing sound as it crashes against the foot of the ship. The subtle mists, the stillness.

I was staring in the vastness of the ocean and its pitch black hue. I am almost blinded. Thank God for the occasional glint of light from the lighthouses and lights from the nearby islands that we passed thru.
It was great moment. A quiet one.

I put on my earphones and fill myself with music when a favorite of mine played “I’m inlove with You” by Kari Jobe. Oh! It was like my last day on earth, that moment, i can savor forever. It was surely my kind of “emo”. Lol.

Suddenly, i caught myself talking to God, just praising Him for his creation, his creations that always amazes me. Then he put something in my heart:

Psalms 139:7-12

7 Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?

8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.

9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,

10 even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.

11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,”

12 even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.

You see me.
You see me as your child even if the darkness of my heart hides me.
You see me as wonderful even if the world tells me im not.
You see me as a minister when i cant even know if i can.
You see me as a light in the pitch black world.
You said i can because you will enable me.
You said i am because you made me one.
You see me as yours.
You see me as yours.

I am not defined by what the world tells of me.

Its 11pm and Im about to arrive to my destination. The wind seems never tired of blowing just like God is never tired of me. Im stepping down to another place with indeed another journey, but one thing’s for sure. Wherever i am, i can never flee from his presence. 😍

God will get you through the pain.

Image

Everyone experiences pain sometimes, emotional and physical. Next time it threatens to overwhelm you, take a deep breath. As you breathe slowly, picture God holding you, crying with you, giving you the strength to get through.

“The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” -Psalm 34:18

 

Enjoy! God bless 🙂

it’s ok to ask for help.

Image

You are not here to do it all alone. That would be crazy! Do you know how to grow rice, spin yard or make electricity? No one does it all alone. That’s why people have each other. Relying on and supporting each other is what makes the world go round. Don’t be shy about asking for help.

 

Enjoy! God bless 🙂

you are blessed.

You may think you have challenges, but you have so many blessings. Sometimes it takes only a moment of conscious effort to recognize those blessings. Once you focus on the gifts instead of the problems, your whole perspective will change and you will see blessings everywhere.

 

Enjoy! God bless
