Music & Memories

I have always loved to sing and write songs although I don’t know how to read notes/fancy characters on a music sheet. 
I watched my mother play when I  was little and with inquisitiveness I would sneak her song book and check the pages where chords are. When I learn to play I got so addicted and love it so much that she would hide her guitar because I don’t get my chores done in the house and I burned the rice (dinner) many times. 

I don’t have the greatest quality, high pitch voice but I sing with all my hearts’ desire because I love it. 

We do what we love. It doesn’t matter how it may sound as long as it feels right from the inside. 

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!  Psalm 150:6

Stay Connected

It’s nothing new Buddy, you were there before. You know Who were with you. He never left you. He never will. Have faith. Trust in Him. You probably know the answer but you’re making it difficult with that stubborn spirit. Give it to the Lord, lift it all up to Him. Stay connected my Friend. Jesus loves you big time. 

When I am afraid, I put my trust in You. In God,  whose word in praise, in God I trust, I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me.  Psalm 56:3-4


Envy

​It is a sad truth that it is difficult for people to celebrate other’s achievements, doubtful of how they got there, and would even wish it belongs to someone else because the one who worked hard to achieve it, they like the least or maybe they don’t like the achiever at all.

Envy ruins the soul. 

Let’s rejoice the day that the Lord has made even when He planned our days different. He have His reasons. 

Let us not allow our hearts to ache out of our fellows happiness. 

Be cheerful. Be grateful. Let’s celebrate with them. 


A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.  Proverbs 17:22

Captivated

What a beauty,

Who can deny,

Your existence,

I am mesmerized.

I see the blue sky,

I’m feeling the breeze at night,

Countless stars in the night sky,

And the moon spread its light.

Morning dew every tomorrow,

I looked forward to yesterday.

I hear the birds singing,

What a joy it bring.

You are close,

Closer than what I think.

You captivated me.

And you’ll always be The One.

Who amazes my heart,

Who wakes me up in the morning,

Whose air I breathe,

The One who have my heart.

In The Quiet

I know God never get tired of the same prayer each day. I always start with giving thanks of how the day is. When it is sunny I would say it. When it is breezy I would say it. I may even sound like a child learning to pray. But I believe that it blesses His heart when we acknowledge Him thru how the sunshine warms our faces and the dew on the grass wet our feet.

DSC_0547I get to enjoy little things around me when I am able to give up my daily routine and step outside, sit under the tree and listen to the birds singing. It is amazing when I can actually watch them closer and sometimes hold my breath, not moving so I won’t startle them and so they can stay longer and to prolong that simple moment.

DSC_0065I struggle each day to get connected with God because I am too busy. But the great thing with God, He never is too busy for me. I feel guilty because He is so good. I know when I have to let go of everything and take time to talk to Him. I can be very busy trying to get stuff done while I am alone. But when the Holy Spirit tag my heart, I learn to just take that moment. I actually like it because I can pray loud in the quietness of my home.

DSC_0575.JPGGod is surely happy when I demand His attention. He sees me learning to humble myself in His presence and acknowledge that He is in control. And God loves me so much that He wants me to experience an intimate period of time at the midst of my business. He never leave me alone. He desires to bless me with peace, joy, and remind me that He prepared a place for me, and that is eternal. But I won’t be a conqueror of all He has in-store for me if I won’t surrender my self to Him.

DSC_0075As of this moment, He wants me to know that His grace is sufficient when my cup is half way empty.

He blesses me with patience. And that waiting for His answer is allowing Him to work in me and for me to know Him, draw me closer to Him. To wait and see what He can do. To teach me to trust Him. To be still and know that He is God

He reassures me to have peace and live life with joy even when His answer could be no. To rejoice, give Him honor and praise whatever His answer might be.

DSC_0571Time is so precious. And I am grateful when I can sit down, forget the chores, enjoy outside, or play my guitar and hum a tune and pray. Sometimes these can be difficult to do because I get so distracted with other things. I make a to-do-list as a reminder of what needs to be done. And I feel so accomplished when I scratch each one at the end of the day.

20150329_153922I hope that the highlight of my day would be being content with the things that really matters. Enjoy solitude. Pray. Do the things that will satisfy my soul in the quiet.

But Jesus Himself would often slip away to the wilderness and pray. Luke 5:16
