Writings about Faith

  • End of a Chapter

    My wedding day was surreal and it was indeed the happiest day of my life. But I’m not writing to share with you how everything was well-orchestrated. Instead, I’d like to tell how God victoriously ended a chapter in my life and beautifully opened a new one.   Darkest Chapter I have no perfect past. I hoped to […]

  • The God of Future Past

    Oftentimes, we may feel a sense of remoteness when you read God’s word. A feeling that somewhat you can’t relate to the Bible because today there’s no more slavery like of what happened in Egypt or crucifixion as form of death penalty. It seems to not make sense in present times, hence we end up more […]

  • Faith and Delight

    We all know faith as “believing even if we don’t see it.” But faith goes beyond believing – it is also LIVING in DELIGHT on the promises of God. Because believing and not living what you believe in is basically just knowing. If we had been truly transformed by God’s saving grace, we would delight in […]

  • When an Adult’s Childhood Toy Gets a New Life

    Before all my Barbies, Star Wars, and Doctor Who toys, I had this Tiggr stuffed animal. It’s been with me for more than two decades! Over time Tiggr accumulated years worth of dust, dirt, and mold that he seemed beyond repair. Despite that (and since I believe in second chances) I had it dry-cleaned and […]

  • When in Grief, Don’t Stop

    When we’re down our tendency is to stop and wallow in sadness. But the world will not wait while we finish our grief. One of the hardest things to do in life is to continue moving on while grief is pulling us back. Yet, it is also the most rewarding for joy is greater in […]

  • Overcoming that Crippling Fear

    Fear is driven by our instinct to survive or guard ourselves from harm. And that makes fear one of the fundamental elements why our ancestors evolved and survived. For example, when you see a threat you don’t run towards it, you run away from it. See? Fear, in healthy doses, is somewhat important. Fear helps us survive ourselves. Yes, ourselves. Like failing […]

  • The Season of Singleness

    Every season brings with it it’s own set of questions. As we grow, so do the questions. They quickly go from from “What do you want to be when you grow up?” to “What course are you going to take?”, “How do I pay all these bills?”  and “How can I support my family?”. While […]

  • Looking at the Bronze Snake

      I made a covenant with myself last month that I will devote at least 30 minutes of my time to pray and read the Bible. At first I was consistent, I read, I prayed, I praised, and I worship. But as time pressed on, I became busy and overwhelmed by my responsibilities. I unconsciously […]

  • Is your basket empty or full?

    We all went through lack at some point in our lives. Maybe you already experienced it. Some are going through it. And others might be seeing it in the future. No matter what situation you belong to, you know how it feels to have nothing (or close to nothing). The question is, what do you […]

  • Price of Grace

    What if grace comes with a price tag? This would mean people would restlessly work day and night, boast of their bank accounts just to receive it. The truth is no amount of effort and riches can match the value of God’s grace. What would our lives be if God works that way? Well, it’s […]
