It just is.

Whenever you love somebody, there is usually a list of "I love you because of....."

Your voice.
Your smile.
Your confidence.
The way you laugh at your own jokes.
The way you crinkle your nose when you laugh.
How you change your mind a hundred times at the drive-thru.
How you bend down to a child to speak to them at eye level.

The list goes on and you will keep trying to find more reasons to make everything have perfect sense in its way of loving someone.

Then you hear the truth about what Jesus says when He says He loves you. It changes your perspective about love. It changes you as a person. 

This is what happened to me. When I didn't seem to see myself loved because of my debilities, He came to me and whispered, "My beloved, I love you just - because."

No specific reason, not based on externals and not even based on anything I say or do.

It just is.

At the end of the day, we all get old and gray. 
We all change over a lifetime. 
The reason that others love us never stay the same, because we are people in progress shaped by the edges of time. 

In fact, God loves us when our souls turn ugly, when we are cowardly and crass, when we fail and stumble. He loves us when the dress stops fitting. Our God is the God who stays when everyone else leaves. He loves us just because and He can't help it. 

This is who He is, regardless of who we are, because His love does not reside in a list.

His love is free.

It is reckless.

It is forever.

Whenever someone ask me my opinion about gay people, or people who support abortion, or people of other religions, or transgender people, or overly religious people..

I usually say, 

"You mean what do I think about people? 
Well, I am a people too and we're all pretty screwed up. 
And I think we all need Jesus."

God loves people. 

We are all invited.

End of story.

Back to Life.

Oh Hello Everyone!

I have made some changes here and there to make my blog looks more interesting. Yet, it will not make a huge different without posting anything. So here's some updates about my life.

Life has been a roller coaster for me for the past 4 years. 

I had been through so much and I am now stronger than I was yesterday.

Nothing to brag about myself at all. 

In fact, I am currently wandering in the middle of wilderness discerning God's promises for me and still in a day-to-day mission of pursuing Him even more.

a Dreamer. yes I Am!

It’s cliche. i know. and i hate things that are cliche. but still. it’s so true. i feel like i should rephrase it. but i won’t. just don’t give up, ever. there’s always something to live for, someone to breathe for, some reason to walk, talk, dance, sleep, eat. it’s the things that are placed in front of us in attempts to stop us that really should inspire us to keep going. those brick walls are placed strategically to try to make us give up. what’s better: saying that you gave up when something difficult showed up, or being able to say that you were able to overcome that difficult situation and proceed with your life. i think the latter. so keep pushing. finding one small thing that gives you a push can be your saving grace. whether it be a person, poetry, writing, music, singing, dancing, photography, anything. just an outlet that you know will always be there for you when you may not be at your best. knowing that one thing is there may help you accomplish things you never dreamed you would ever accomplish.
