Unity

Last week of this life apart from You

~

Soon

Very soon

Where I’ll become You

And You’ll be united with me

~

How I have lived so long without You

Without knowing what I was missing

~

Guide me with every choice I make

Enlighten my path so I continue to walk towards You

~

Always towards

Never apart

~

Never permit me to be separated from You

Purpose

When He is my Source

I can never be emptied

If I can give back into the world

The light, the inspiration, the love

I received

Let that be

Wherever I might be

Even if one day I might not be where I am

I know He shall remain with you,

Wherever you may be

Principles

Let us not make another look bad for us to look good. Let us not mind to look bad ourselves if another wishes to look good. For we know what we are capable of without succumbing to the superficial. At the end of the day, the world may perish, but our integrity remains within us. Together with the magnificence of His grace and forgiveness bestowed upon us.

Let us contribute to building a world where people derive joy from their daily occupations. Creating an environment where people can thrive and excel with their strengths. Where the strong will help the weak to become stronger. Where we exercise our freedom with responsibility, and base our choices on love.

Let us remember our purpose, and how He died for us so we can do what we do today. Let us continue His work, in everything that we do. Let us not complain in face of difficulties, because if He can die for us, what can we not do for Him?

Looking back at the selection of 3-8-2019, no matter how inspiring it once was and still is, I now can see how I have changed. How I once was strong yet breakable. Now, though fragile, I am unbreakable. No longer afraid of the dark, because the light is shining within me.

Eternal Love

When we are searching for words

We cannot find

But You know us better than we know ourselves

And You give Your Word to us

Making us aware of Your Eternal Presence

Gone

All the confusions

All the human passions

There to excite

There to incite

Just to entertain our boredom

Until we find our purpose

Until we feel Your love

And nothing compares with that

Unveil

No, God does not want you to cover the magnificence of His Work

He wanted them to exercise more discipline by not staring at His Creation

The Choice

The Devil said: I’ll give you everything you want, but I’ll test your faith until you’re mine.

But God said: Do what is the best for you, and I’ll be with you until the end.
