LETTING GO: When It Seems So Right But God Thinks Otherwise


I am the type of person who has always been so used to having things work out the way I want them to – major life decisions, including minor ones – everything that feels right always goes as planned.

I always thought that if God permits something to happen, it is what he wills for me.

Little did I know that later on I will learn that sometimes God permits things to happen, not because He wants these things for us but because He wants us to find out for ourselves that what we think is His will is not what He has actually planned for us.

“Everything is permissible” – but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible” – but not everything is constructive. 1 Corinthians 10:23

I had many plans for my life – serve God while I’m single, study well, get a good career, get married at…

An Open Letter to the Guy Who Almost Broke my Heart

🎶 Maybe I was naive,

Got lost in your eyes

And never really had a chance.

My mistake I didn’t know to be in love 🎶

Enter this Taylor Swift song in the background. Funny how I easily fell for your words and enjoyed the time we spent talking to each other — joking around like real couples, ignoring the fact that there’s no us. I hated myself for not having second thoughts or safety precautions. But to be honest with you, I really thought opposites do attract. But we’re not magnets. I may be your sunshine, but you came in like thunder — and I don’t know why I danced with you in the storm. And you’re just so into our conversations that it absent-mindedly made me want you.

I got to know your other side — including the murky past — but now I’m not sure if they weren’t lies. Made up stories because I am that kind of girl who would always sympathize, who’s completely innocent with your worldly ways and masked appearance, a kind of girl who’ll be so accepting and accommodating. That even when I get hurt, I will just move on and write a good poem out of it.

Thank you for the show, thank you for revealing who you really are. But don’t get me wrong. I am not going to judge nor hate you. I will still pray that someday, you will receive the love you deserve. And so will I.


5 Reasons Why You Should Stop Spreading Gossips


God hates slander (Proverbs 6:16, 19). It is evil. That’s why Paul lists it as a behavior of those who hate God (Romans 1:30) and why James calls it demonic behavior (James 3:15–16). Slander occurs whenever someone says something untrue about someone else that results, intentionally or unintentionally, in damaging that someone else’s reputation. And when it occurs, it becomes a divisive, discouraging, and confusing weight that often affects numerous people — sometimes many, many people. Because of its poisonous power, it is one of the adversary’s chief strategies to divide relationships and deter and derail the mission of the church. We must be on our guard against this closely clinging sin and frequently lay it aside (Hebrews 12:1).
