This is for you.

For the times that you tried to talk to her but hesitated
For the times that you snatched a glance of her smile
For the times that you wonder what she’s thinking
And for the times that you thought what it’s like

This is for you.

From the moment that she captured your attention
To that night that you considered praying for her
For the times that she occupied your thoughts
Asking God to keep her safe and make her whole

This is for you.

If you think you are not enough
If you think you don’t deserve her
If you think she won’t give a chance
Because she is out of your league

This is for you.

If you tried to man up before and asked
But got your heart broken by a no.
If you’re afraid to try again with her
Anticipating another fall.

This is for you.

You are enough.
Nothing is more than enough
Than a man who loves the Lord
And obeys His word.

You deserve her
As much as she deserves you.
You will compliment each other
In every limb and bones.

She will give you a chance
Or she will not
But isn’t it worth to try?

For she is eagerly waiting
But never pursuing
You are diligently praying
And always preparing.

So just go. Pursue her.
Let your intention be known
Don’t test the water
And leave her complexities explode.

May your confidence lie in the Lord
May your heart be most satisfied by His love
So no matter what the result is
Both of you will keep your ground.

Thanks, But No Thanks!

Remember this night.
How it feels like
You were just a valid reason
To cover up tracks.
Asking you out is only a courtesy.
You can come.
But you better not.

Next time, remember to pass.
Come up with an excuse
Or you will be used as one.
Spend your time somewhere else.
Somewhere worth your time.
Because every second you give
Is equivalent to love.
Hoping to be appreciated
Not trampled away.

You thought you were wanted.
Finally, someone you can be honest with.
Someone you can be yourself
Without thinking twice.

But you got it all wrong.
You are just a nice and smooth escape goat.

The “I-miss-you”
Is like a penny dropped in an empty can.
Loud and insincere.
The action doesn’t match the words.
The means won’t justify the ends.
The motive can’t be concealed.

Remember how the sweet words
Turned sour the moment it left the lips.
It should soothe your heart
But you were pierced instead.

Remember this night.
And never let yourself be used again
To satisfy one’s ego
Nor hide the filth of someone else.

Halimaw Sa Poste

May knock-knock joke si SPACEPACITO sa PSA GC about “Halimaw sa poste.”

So ginaya ko siya at nag-knock-knock naman ako sa GC namin with my family.

Nanay ko lang ang online.

Hahaha! Di ko kinaya e. Di pa ko nagsisimula, soplak na ko.

So I demanded an explanation. I needed an acceptable reason.

Bwahahaha! May point naman siya. Alam nga naman pala niyang ako yun.

Sarap talaga ka-laughtrip ng Nanay ko. Sa kanya lang bumebenta joke ko. At tawang-tawa rin ako kapag bumabanat siya.

Dahil naging busy na ko after, yung joke ni SPACEPACITO hindi ko na nasabi. Next time nalang. Gagamit ako ng ibang account para sabihin na niya yung magic word na “who’s there?” Sino magpapahiram ng account sakin? 🙊🙉🙈🤣🤣🤣

PS: Kung gusto niyo malaman kung ano yung joke ni Space, reply: “Oo! Ano yun Jai? Please lang sabihin mo sa’kin!” Kung hindi, “Never mind. I-message ko nalang si Space.” Then send to 14344. 😂😂

Not FB Official? No problem!

Don’t get me wrong. You may like to announce it to the world and I’m totally okay with that. But hey, I’m fine with just us and a few trusted friends.

I’m an introvert no matter how extrovert I look. I’m not comfortable with spotlight. That’s why I still blog as general as I can even though all the rules in blogging tells me to write specifically.

So when it comes to our relationship: as long as our parents, leaders, and accountability partners know, I’m good. They meant “the world” to me.

I haven’t counted how many years I am waiting for you. But it gets lonely sometimes. Specially when I’m sick and I miss my mother. Don’t worry, I get over it–in a few days or weeks. Sometimes with chocolate, coffee and writing. Most of the time with prayer and encouragement through His Word.

I haven’t been faithful though. I’ve allowed relationships that I thought were “good enough” but end up ripping my already-ripped-view-of-marriage-and-sex. I’ve been hurt but I’ve caused pain in their heart as well. But the wonder of God’s grace and mercy have healed my wounds and I sincerely hope the same for them.

So wherever you are, I hope you are busy serving the Lord and multiplying leaders. I hope that you love the Lord genuinely that your contentment lies in Him. Then, when you are ready as I am, don’t hesitate to ask. I’m excited to meet you.

Just as I was overwhelmed with an answered prayer the other day, I’m sure that getting married with you will blow my mind as well.

Waiting expectantly,


You are a slave
No longer believing that
From all the chains
You have been freed

Now, read from bottom to top.

Lately, there are so much lies lingering in my mind. I believe most of them.

Accusing me of:

Why bother doing the right thing if I will just mess it up? I can’t stand on what is right for a very long time. Throw me a trial, hurt me a little, and I will curl up in depression. Then I’ll end up sinning.

Soon guilt will come rushing at the door then I can’t handle the condemnation.

But thank God for His grace that allows me to look at a different perspective that offers hope. There is hope for a sinner like me. And there is hope for you too.

Sometimes, all you have to do is to look from bottom to top. 😉

Solo Travel And Fake Foodie Blogger

IKEA DXB! Ito na ang pinakamalayo kong solo travel since I came here sa UAE. Haha!

Let’s feast in this swedish meatball with mashed potato and gravy na walang strawberry jam kasi ubos na raw. Tatlong araw na raw silang walang stock. So ako nalang raw ang mag-adjust. Tutal, sanay naman ako dun. Anyway, andito na rin lang ako sa area kaya kumain na rin ako dito sa IKEA kasi kaninang 7AM pa yung last lamon ko. Namiss ko ‘tong meatballs nila na mas masarap kung may strawberry jam kasi nagtatalo yung tamis, asim nung jam at alat nung meatball at gravy. Kunyari foodie. Pero ang totoo niyan, ito lang kasi ang alam kong kainin. Hindi ko pa kilala yung iba. Saka nalang kapag may kasama na kong kumain dito. In the near 3 lightyears.

Malungkot yung food chart ko kasi walang kape. 6 dirhams yung kape nila against 3 dirhams na tubig. So tubig nalang di ba? Magkakape nalang ako sa bahay. Dapat kasi talaga nagbabaon ng tubig e. Gasino ba naman bumili sa Baqala (parang 711 nila dito) worth 1 dirham di ba? E pero wala na andito na ‘ko e.

Bukod sa gusto ko lang idocument ang pagpunta ko ng IKEA mag-isa, gusto ko lang din ishare ‘tong verse that became a source of encouragement for me today:

Before pa yan, I’m reading Isaiah and part of it is the prophecy of Isaiah to the Israelites. Sandamakmak na kasalanan na yung pinagagagawa ng mga Israelites at galit na talaga si Lord. But amidst all the anger of the Lord to the undeniable sins of His people, He still give hope to them through these verses:

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land; but if you resist and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword.” For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭1:18-20‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Then boom! These verses just spoke to my heart. Para kasi kong Israelite sa tigas ng ulo. But these verses calmed my heart and gave me hope. So I prayed and asked the Lord to help me to be a willing and obedient daughter. His promise of good things of the land is a result of putting Him first as my Lord and obeying Him. I am trying my best to be still and remind myself that He is God.

There! I hope that whatever things that caused you to stumble, you will find God willing to help you stand up again and fight.

And when we get a chance, let’s have some coffee together, ha? Ikaw diyan, ako dito. Hehe

Chao! 🙂

Impossible is one of His Favorite Words.

We make the same mistake that Thomas made: we forget that impossible is one of God’s favorite words. 

When was the last time you imagined the unimaginable?

When was the last time you dared dream of the day when every mouth will be fed and every nation dwell in peace?

Has it been awhile since you claimed God’s promise to do “more than all we ask or imagine?”
