Despite overwhelming evidences That point me to the contrary I hold on to the good The unerring course for home Albeit the smoke blinding I breathe in the light Charging towards the unseen Trusting that it leads to where You are
My love, He has won my heart for you. So lost in Him, that the only way to find me is to be lost in Him too.
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
My stubborn heart can’t handle to encourage others anymore. I always pray that He fills me up. Everyday, every hour, every minute and every second. Work consumes all the love in me. As if it isn’t enough that I give more than 14 hours of my day to it, it asks for more.
Books keep me sane. Aside from the bible (of course), I am reading/listening to Love Wins by Rob Bell and Desiring God by John Piper. Don’t worry my dear…
It just gives me so much joy to read. Specially now when it is all about His love that I am reading about. I pray you’re as crazy for Him as I am. 🙂
I am still adjusting to my new schedule, new role at work, new everything that our Father God is giving me… So ’til then, I guess I’ll keep my inner most thoughts on life on my journal (yes, I still keep one, where I write things.. yes write!)
😉 This little gift of writing letters to you weekly on this blog… I promise to write it with more love,maybe in a few years or so (who knows), once He’s given the go signal on this next new thing. (Hah! Try to make sense of that :p)
Instead of keeping records of wrongs.. Let me just keep records of love! 🙂
This will be the first time that I am writing to you. Def not the last. I’ve been thinking about you lately and I hate it. I pray for you always though, but I pray that you stay still and keep on doing what you are doing until I am ready. I am still on the first 2 sentences of 1 Corinthians 13.
Love is patient. Love is kind.
I can’t seem to get to the next part and memorize it. That’s why I do it very slowly. 1-2 sentences of the verse per week phase so that when I memorize, I practice.
You see I’ve been reading a lot and it was hard at first. I’ve recently read Master, Mission, Mate by Ken Graves. It gives joy to my heart ’cause I am confident that you are still on the Mission part like me. I will soon read I Kissed Dating Goodbye by Joshua Harris, because I am kissing dating goodbye for you. (hihihi)
I’m sorry if I wasn’t able to take care of my heart. I was immature and stupid and excited. Oh and I was misguided. Now it’s all different. I’m sure we both believe and trust in the same God, who is forever faithful. The thought of His creative hands writing our love story gives me the goosies (Goosebumps) and now I have a smile I couldn’t wipe off my sun-kissed face (I’m learning how to surf and I got sunburned 🙂
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths (Proverbs 3:5,6).
I’d like to tell you more about this next time. For now, let me put all of these here. 🙂
