Into the Silence of My Being


 As I delve into the silence of my being,
allow me to see Your love;
the kind of love that never fails to supply me joy,
a love that could replace all my despair with happiness

Your love that could help me see the beauty of things
so I can handle each disappointment and pain with grace
Your love that gives me strength and peace
despite of all my worries and fears

Your love that comforts my weary heart;
I know this broken road will lead me to a better scenery
Your love that makes me shine, sparkle, bloom, glow...
You're holding my hand as I walk this journey

As I delve into the silence of my being,
Lord, envelope me with Your love

Because of Your Love


 BECAUSE OF YOUR LOVE
(THE PRODIGAL SON'S LULLABY)

how can I see Your face
and receive Your loving grace
when I am here shamed in sin
hurting You deep within

yet every time I run and flee
You take me home forgiving me
with the skies I feel Your touch
no other love can be this much

You are there as I hide
with Your arms open wide

for You alone
have the greatest love the world has ever known
a love that never ceases to embrace a weary heart
and give a brand new start
provides light where the sun has never shown
now I can understand
that I am here because of Your love

so I take Your gentle hand
only to sin again
and yet You turn then stubbornly
you take me home, forgiving me

how can love as great as this
even want to exist
oh God of all that's good and true
please believe I love You too

though I walk through desert's doors
I will fear nothing more

that I am here because...
you are there as I hide
with Your arms open wide
though I walk through desert's doors
I will fear nothing more
nothing more

as You take me by the hand
that I am here
because of Your

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.

A Walk in the Forest



I don't know how You do it but You make my heart so happy about everything in my life. I know You had planned my life differently and I may not understand things sometimes but I trust You. Thank You for being patient on me whenever I throw tantrums and thank You for always making me understand and feel happy at the end of the day. I am aware that my family's facing problems right now. We are dealing with it and I am not worried. I don't know why and I think it's crazy to feel happy when we have this over flowing trials to get through.

Maybe happy is not the right word. Maybe I am calm, confident and excited to see You work on us. It has always been that way; You give us trials we thought we could never survive but there You are, You give solutions, You send people at the right time and things just amazingly fall into place.

I am not going to tell You about our problems, You know it Lord. Deal with it, I surrender everything to You. Instruct my heart. Lead me Lord, I am ready to walk with You.

Whenever I think about the trials that we've been through together, I just couldn't help it, I admire and adore You more. I fall more deeply in love with You. Your love for us is amazing.

Lord, thank You for always being there for me. Thank You for this moment. Thank You for Your love. Thank You for guiding me and teaching me how to be patient. I know You miss me. I miss You too and I've been longing to have this moment with You again.

Lord thank You for the music. Thank You for all the instrumental songs that You always use to lead me to a world where we can sit and talk about random things.

Lord, I love You so much. Thank You for touching my heart and letting me walk with You again. You're simply amazing!
