I Forget.

I forget that I am saved.

I forget that I am a masterpiece.

I forget that I am capable.

I forget that I am valuable.

I forget that I am free.

 

I am free to live.

I am free to learn.

I am free to speak up.

I am free to express myself.

 

I forget that I am free to use my talent to let the world know of the unfathomable love that my Savior has given me so freely.

 

I forget many things; trivial and vital.

I forget not on purpose.

I forget, and it isn’t good.

But when God forgets, it’s okay.

He forgets my sin.

He forgets my failures.

He forgets my transgressions.

He forgets my rebellion.

He forgets my hate.

He forgets my anger.

He forgets my punishment.

He forgets. Continuously.

 

But I forget to ask Him for forgiveness.

 

 

There are all too many things I forget, but at least I never forget that He loves me, and will continue to do so, even when I’ve completely forgotten about it all.

Thank you to my dear friend and mentor, Lara, for reminding me of my writing, reminding me of my identity in Christ, of reminding me of what I used to do, and what I can do. Thank you for reminding me of His Love.

[REVIEW] “KEEP DANCING”

After two years of being partly off the grid, the aesthetically-pleasing music makers from Caffeine and Taurine are back with a stronger kick ㅡ thanks to their new release, and the new additions to the band: Anthony Abitona on bass, and Joshuel Bautista on the keyboard. The two, along with CAT pillars Brandon Garcia who is now on synths and vocals, Nath Pelareja on drums, and Daniel Ching on guitar and vocals have returned with a fresh track that marks their return to the local music scene.

The Five People You Meet (SUITS Version)

Cast-Season-5-suits-38613599-1920-1080

If in this world, you are like me and you see yourself as the Mike Ross in this Pearson-Specter world, then you should remember these five people you meet.

They will either make you or break you, so you better learn how to read people and understand their roles in your life.

You will encounter success, heartbreak, failure, promotion, happiness, and even hopelessness, which all serves a purpose in the long run – and so do these people.

These are the kinds of people who will hammer you into a worthwhile individual – but you still have the final say what you become: a masterpiece, or a failure.

Head Above Water

Nothing beats knowing you’re above water again, after a grueling tussle with the darkest of shadows.

Happy is too much of an understatement, but it’s a good place to start. Learning the definition of happiness takes time when you’ve been thrown into an indefinitely-dated slump. But for the love of everything good and true, I am glad I listened to the voice that told me I could get back up on my feet.

Right now, I am anchored on happiness with the help of a few things like chocolate and uplifting music, but I also attribute it to the little steps I’m taking to better myself, and finally at the fact that things are getting better. I am learning not to be anxious about tomorrow, because my system automatically thinks of the worst possible thing that could happen after a beautiful and perfectly memorable situation has occurred. I am unlearning this, and I’ll be glad when I’m free from it. Even now, I’m claiming it and looking forward to the freedom that peace brings.

I’m absolutely thankful for every single surprise that the Lord bestows upon me, just to keep me grounded on His promise of joy. Everything is coming together, and despite a rocky, displeasing, and depressing month that I had to go through, I believe this time around it’s going to get better and better. There are always good things ahead.
