The Broken Road

"Bless The Broken Road"

I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you

Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

I think about the years I spent just passing through
I'd like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You've been there you understand
It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true

Now I'm just rolling home
Into my lover's arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you.


It's almost Valentine's Day and I know that there are people out there who will be spending the day of love with a broken heart. Cheer up, you guys! I know that there are no words that could comfort you and lessen the pain that you are feeling. Blab as much as you can about how it hurts. Cry if you have to, but find strength and hope in Him. Know that He is preparing somebody who fits you the best.

I have a secret to tell...*_* I pray for my future lifetime partner. Aside for praying for my present boyfriend, I also pray for my future one. The song Bless The Broken Road became my song for him after a friend of mine shared it to me while I was crying about someone; the words of the song comforted me. It actually made me happy. It reminded me that God is always there for me and He loves me so much. He's a King and I am His daughter; therefore, I deserve and I believe that He'll give me a Prince. hehe.

The Mastery of Love

It's a reflection about The Mastery of Love, a book given to me by my special someone. I believe that he gave it to me because he noticed that I need to learn more about self-love.

He said in his letter:

"I hope you'll learn a lot from this book because I believe in you. I know you are capable of so much more and you are way better than you give yourself credit for. Don't be afraid to love yourself because I do. Don't be afraid to aim high. If you fall, I'll give you my hand, help you stand up, and say "Try again, I know you can."

I hope you can picture what kind of a man he is. Every day, I thank God that He gave me the opportunity to share a chapter of my life with him. I feel so blessed to have someone who'd literally pray with me, who shares the same faith with me, who constantly reminds me to pray and to...not love him so much. hahaha. I mean, he actually helps me not to let our relationship eclipse my personal relationship with the Lord. I love how he comforts me about my problems and reminds me to let go everything to Him. I also love that he is my praise buddy. I love that he always play worship songs in his car. I love how he makes me laugh and how he carries the extra courage that I needed to do things. I love how rational he is. He's like everything in one and most especially, he is a friend...and...=P enough..hahaha..this page is not about him but yeah, I hope you can picture him.

Even before he became my boyfriend, I was already thanking God that I met him (he's a retreat brother) and the wisdom that he has been blessed. Believe me, I can see his flaws and actually, the first time that I listened to Rascal Flatts' version of Bless the Broken Road was when I cried because of him. hehe That's why, I believe that I will still be able to say prayers of thanks in the future no matter where our shared paths will end. =)



Love Life...

This entry is about my personal relationship with the Lord and the lessons I've learned from my past relationships.

I was blessed to hear this song for the first time over 10 years ago when I worked at a local hotel. The woman who originally recorded it was doing a CD tour and gave me a copy after we had talked for a while.

In a way, this song has been an anthem for me and allowed me to see that there is a prize at the end of all the heartache.
