30 days 'til Christmas! How fast has it been since last year's? Time really does run fast; so quickly that we don't see how much we have changed the past year. My life is basically the same— been dealing with a lot of problems emotionally—learning and unlearning; forgiving and forgetting. Life really is a cycle of something. Some things just have to go on while some don't really have to. We have to let go of the negativity while holding on to the few positive ones that make our lives worth the living. At times, we feel like giving up and sometimes we feel energized to continue on in this race we are in— competing against all hardships & dilemmas.
Life is so complicated, ain't it? I just feel like undoing all the things that went wrong in mine, but I just can't do it! The choice we only have is to make use of life and enjoy the presence of people we love in our lives. This year truly taught me soooo many things that I wouldn't have learned otherwise. This year has moreover brought out the gratefulness I have to God for never failing me — for never leaving me behind. I also never loved my family like the way I do now. God's absolutely good in that He's answered a lot of my unanswered questions and just listened to my heart's desires. I know that the problems my family's facing now isn't ending yet, but the assurance that He is in control just makes me want to surrender it all to Him. I hope I could be more open in here, but I care for my family's privacy too, so I'll keep it this private for now. Whatever it is, I just want to tell you that life isn't ending even when you want to... so keep on running, keep on blooming wherever you're planted even when life seems to be but a big blur, and appreciate every good thing that comes your way. Some people only beg God for a life like yours, so live yours and own it!
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. — 2 corinthians 4:16
Thanks for making it to this portion of the internet. I am truly grateful for each one of you for reading my entries! Most of what I've written here are unspoken words — words I wish I could've said or shared with anyone in person but has remained in my heart until I was able to write it in here.
My life's full of downs than ups, but through it all, I have seen and tasted the sweetness of God's grace and love. With that, I can tell you with a convinced heart that God is faithful, He is good and He never runs out of love for you and for me. Hope you enjoy your read(s)!
Rest if you must, but don't you quit!
