The Rhythm of God’s Love

The Rhythm of God's Love

Have you been so in love with the presence of God? I mean, literally. Like when you feel like all you want to hear are His words? Or the only thing you want to see is His face whenever you spend time with Him, in prayers, in quiet time or whenever you feel like it? Well, I guess I do. It’s really hard to explain but for me, it’s the best feeling in this world – falling in love with someone who will definitely love you back in greater measure. How fascinating is that?

When I started falling in love with God, things crazily turned around. I never thought that the things I was just daydreaming about before could be so tangible. Like I never even believed it was already happening. Let me give you one, when I was in secondary school, I dreamed of joining a beauty pageant but lose my hope because I feel like an ugly duckling who wouldn’t even turn into a lovely swan. But I was totally wrong. On my second year in the University, I encountered God. He showed me who I really am and from then on, things have changed, drastic changes. It was like a fairy tale where an evil witch cursed me to be an ugly duckling. But then the love of the Lord turned me into a beautiful swan, inside and out. I was transformed by His love and became confident because I knew someone Supreme is believing in me, believing that I am beautiful. I then joined a school pageant and won the title. God promised me the title and so I got it, for Him, with Him and through Him. Who could imagine that someone like me who got bullied during early school days because of my looks would actually be a beauty queen? Well, only God can do that – a magical transformation just like what the fairy godmother did to Cinderella for her to attend the Royal Dance in the Palace with the Prince. But in every story, whether you like it or not, there will still be a villain. Life was never easy when I knew God and totally surrendered my life to Him, perhaps it became harder. Harder in the sense that the works of the enemy was more intense because he stumbled when he knew that God already got me. It’s true, the challenges were harder but it became easier for me to face due to the belief and the fact that God is always with me. I’m facing all the challenges with Him and He never left me, even for a millisecond. That’s how faithful God is. He will always let us feel His presence in any way possible.

Time flies so fast. My love for the Lord gets even deeper and wider. And His love for me became greater, a love that’s inescapable, a love that you can’t keep to yourself, an immeasurable love that NO ONE can ever surpass.  And that love was felt in rhythm, in repetition and that whenever you need it, it resonates. That love is like a wave which will definitely drown you, it’s like an ocean which seem no end, a sky which has no limit, a wind that will blow you away and a theory that is unexplained. God’s love is more than just a feeling, it’s everything good that you can ever think of. It’s more than romantic and more than wonderful, it’s perfect! ❤

The Shore

20150508_155034

I stepped out to you

It’s nostalgic.

I breathe in

You whispered love.

How can I walk away?

Your beauty and grace

So melancholic

The sun shines on you

And it reminds me

I called out

You’re still there.

It’s the heat and the wind

Or maybe this place

Waiting for me, distantly.

This is the best year yet! A lot of awesome things have happened and I just don’t know how to explain it. Or maybe this word can describe it all – euphoria.

Can you imagine how God can use what you love to do to inspire people? Or how He could turn your frustrations and weaknesses into your strength to be able to influence others? Well, I couldn’t have imagined it myself, but it’s happening. So, how cool and awesome was that?

I have been fortunate to meet people who had great stories to share, stories that had the power to inspire anyone who heard them. Through it all, I learned so many things from everything they shared with me. I learned so much from the lives of the people I read about, the books that my mentors ask me to read, the stories of the people I encounter everyday. And the best part of it is not just the amount of learnings that I was able to acquire; it’s that all of them have become an inspiration for me to do something like what they did – inspire others out of their passions, out of their experiences, out of their failures and frustrations, out of what they loved to do.

I started a blog with the vision that someday, people would notice what I wrote about and be inspired not just because of what they’ve read, but be inspired to also inspire others. I just find it so amazing how God uses the tools, talents, dreams, passions, skills and our aspirations to be an inspiration.

So, if you are reading this and are already using what you have and what you love to do to inspire others in any way you can, great job! Just continue what you are doing. And if you are reading this and was inspired by what I wrote, I hope you can start inspiring others as well and strive to make an impact on their lives, in the best way that you can. Together, let’s inspire and change the world for the better, one step at a time!
