0 Change

You cant insist on someone that you have changed. Words mean nothing. People may doubt your words but they might believe you if they see it in your actions and in the way you live.

0 Looking at the Silver Lining

Last Saturday I woke up feeling numb and empty. So I did the only thing i can do. I prayed. The prayer goes something like this:

Thank you for giving me another day to live Lord God. As I reflect upon my life today, I shudder at the thought that you haven't left me even though I have fallen under your grace many times. Of all the mistakes that I have done, many things could have happened. It could have been worse. But here I am today slowly but surely getting up. You are truly a great Father. Let me lead a life pleasing to Your eves starting today. No more double standards. Lead my life to serve you and do what you want me to do. Teach me to put You first above all things. I know I can't do this on my own. It is only by your grace that I will be able to get over this. I love you! Amen.

I posted this as my status in my Facebook because I don't want to forget it and for me to have something to read through whenever I feel down again. :) Walking with the Lord is not easy but if you hold on to Him tightly, everything is all worth it! :)

2 Letter to Myself

Dearest Yza,

   Whatever happens, whatever you have done, even if the whole world is against you, ( Well, if ever you have that feeling because it is impossible to know everyone in your country, let alone the whole world ) Remember that there is someone who love you. You have me. I love you. I will never abandon you. You will never be alone. Besides, you also have a great Father who loves you dearly.

     Its normal to fall once in a while. You are not perfect. But always remember the lessons learned along the way so that you won't repeat your mistake. Committing the same mistake over and over again is insanity.Last time I checked, you are in a healthy state of mind (or so I believe? lol)

     Guard your heart. Don't let anyone hurt you. You are a daughter of God. You are His princess. You are to be treated with royalty. Accept nothing less.

     Be confident! Why will you self-pity? Never compare yourself with anyone. To each his/her own. You have the power to conquer the world.

     Continue your progress. You are doing great. Not perfect but okay enough.

     You are beautiful! Thinking otherwise is an insult to your Creator. Everything He creates is beautiful.

     Smile. It brings good vibes. :)

     Healing takes time but I know at the end, you will come out a better person.

     Be independent. Don't push yourself to someone who does not know your worth. You are precious. Don't think little of yourself. You don't need anyone's opinion. Just do what your heart tells you. Yes, you might be hurt in the process, but at least you have nothing to regret.

     Live fully, love with all your heart, do what you want! Nobody is stopping you. Be like a child, basking in innocence, trusting and always thinking positive.

     If others hurt you, forgive and forget. Don't let others bring you down. Trust fully. If they broke your trust and ask for forgiveness, give it to them. Don't hold grudges. Bitterness is a root that strangles the heart. Don't let it strangle yours. Let it all go. Don't let it define your future. You are loved. You have me.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.                                                                                                  1 Corinthians 13:4-7            

And now these thriee remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.                                                                                                 1 Corinthians 13:13

     Strenghten your relationship with Him.

But seek first His kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.                                                                                                            Matthew 6:33

     Never loose hope in the future. Trust in Him. Don't forget you have your father who loves you. Lift your problems to Him. Baliktad ka eh. If times are okay, you seek the Lord, but when trouble comes, you shy away from Him. When the road is bumpy, that's the time that you should hold on to Him stronger. You can't do anything on your own. :) Why sulk when you can be happy? Life is short! Enjoy your life while you can.

     I LOVE YOU YZA! You are a strong woman. I know you can do anything. I believe in you :)

Your Inner Self
