You are Insignificant but Dearly Loved

"What is man that You take thought of him, and the son of man that You care for him?" (Psalm 8:4) Three weeks ago, I celebrated my 21st birthday in one of my favorite cities: New York City. My Dad, brothers, uncle, and I went to Liberty Island and paid Lady Liberty a visit. She … Continue reading You are Insignificant but Dearly Loved

Missing Out On Life?

Earlier this evening, I browsed through my Facebook news feed and saw the various activities of my friends in church and blockmates in school: attending & witnessing a prestigious awards ceremony in the media industry; going to the beach with friends; volunteering in the freshmen orientation; attending youth group (ELEVATE) meetings. After a few minutes … Continue reading Missing Out On Life?

Harsh Realities

Life can be described with adjectives as many as there are Facebook and Twitter users combined. Today, I choose this one: Harsh. I know that life is not problem-free, but the fact to me is just that: a fact. Nothing more, nothing less. Sure, I experience problems growing up--self-image issues, insecurities, geometry problems, fights with … Continue reading Harsh Realities

Emotional Roller Coaster

In the second TVC of Jzone Wired Camp (which was awesome by the way, more about that soon), I went all out in saying that I am a blogger. Since that video was posted on Facebook and aired in our church's Sunday service, people never stopped addressing me as "The Blogger." I've never felt more … Continue reading Emotional Roller Coaster

Honorable Dressing

What to wear? What to wear? What to wear?!?! This question haunted me, reminding me of the fleeting seconds and minutes, as I stood in front of my opened closet, still deciding what to wear. I'm one of those girls whose wardrobe is somewhere between plain Jane and Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes. I … Continue reading Honorable Dressing

The Battle Between the Good and the Best

If there is one thing that will never cease to exist in a Christian's earthly life, it is struggle--emotional, physical spiritual, you name it. The battle between the heart and the mind shall always prevail until the Creator and Lover of one's soul weaves perfection in His beloved's entire being.

“Do Not Fear”

Dear child, Do not fear; I am with you. My plan for you is working perfectly as I expected, beginning the moment when I formed you with My very own hands. Your wholehearted obedience both in surety and in the unknown makes me swell with joy because you are living according to My design for … Continue reading “Do Not Fear”

Locked Up In The Extraordinary

One prestigious career Β that I never fantasize about or imagine myself in is being a lawyer. I imagine myself to be a teacher, broadcaster, editor-in -chief of a magazine, director, events organizer, host, and a president of a company, but never a lawyer. Every now and then I think through situations critically and do my … Continue reading Locked Up In The Extraordinary

On Faith and Focus

About two weeks ago, a new show was introduced in the weekend schedule of Fox channel. The program showcased the world's greatest magicians and tricks that could be mistaken for miracles. I enjoyed watching the pilot episode, albeit several minutes late, because it was a show that needed only my eyes and awe and not … Continue reading On Faith and Focus
