God, I Am Your Child

I thought you have forgotten me already. I thought you have forsaken me. Yet, You are with me all throughout, God. You are with me.

I was busy living on my own, forgetting to pray and missing to go to church. However, it is still comforting to know, Lord, that even I cannot go to church, even I don’t serve You at church or do ministries for You, You still recognized me as Your child. Indeed, grace is not limited only for those people who have been faithful at church. Your grace, God, is not limited only for people who constantly show off their service to You. Your grace is for everybody, including me.

Even in my silence, my short and quick utterance of my prayers were heard. Even in darkness when I cry myself to sleep, even in my stubbornness and even in my disobedience, You still see me as Your own child; who once, believed and accepted Jesus as Savior.

Earlier today, I recognized my weakness. I got tired and I drifted away from You, God. I drifted away because I believed I have no time for intimacy. But today, I realized that it is all I needed- intimacy with You. And so, thank You for reminding me that our relationship is always constant, I am Your child, and You are my Father. You are intimately passionate about me. You will never forsake me nor leave me. Thank You, God, for You have overcome the world.

John 16:33 (KJV)

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulations. But be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. 

Thank You for cheering me up in my lowest moment today. Thank You for not leaving me all the time.

Rainbow is a promise from the Lord. This is NOT a symbol to celebrate pride.


Genesis 9:16-17
16“When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every Living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.”17 God Said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant that I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth.

Ladies and Gentlemen

Ladies: When we let assumptions grow, they begin to manifest themselves in our thoughts, words and actions toward that particular guy. Not only does this show a lack of trust and resting in the Lord but it also leave a little room for God to raise up real men who will courageously take in their role as leaders and initiators, unafraid of rejection and willing to take a risk.

Men: A true man is mindful of his responsibilities to protect the feminine heart and he takes his responsibility seriously by conducting his friendship and interactions with the opposite sex with caution and discretion instead of allowing selfishness; impatience or plain indifference to steer. He allows the spirit of Christ to direct his words and actions and such a man is WORTH WAITING FOR.

God’s Voice

God is a person, and in the deep of His mighty nature He thinks, wills, enjoys, feels, loves, desires and suffers as any other person may. In making Himself known to us He stays by the familiar pattern of personality. He communicates with us through the avenues of our minds, our wills and our emotions.

-A.W. Tozer,  The Pursuit of God

When God instructed me to arise and go, I know I shouldn’t doubt to obey Him.

Hebrews 11:8 By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place that he was to receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.
Isaiah 48:17 Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:  “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you in the way you should go.
Micah 2:10 Arise and go, for this is no place to rest, because of uncleanness that destroys with a grievous destruction.

Sometimes God’s voice is clear, often times we are in doubt if it was His calling or if it was our wants. Here is an article that can remind us how to listen with God’s voice.
