There have been many friendships in my past where I had put far too much trust, dependency and time in. Only can Jesus be my source of strength, acceptance, love and joy. That being said, be careful of the promises you make, the things you do, because it can affect someone far deeper than you realize. A broken heart doesn't always come from a lover. It can come from someone you call friend and family. But there comes a time where you must pick yourself up, bring the shattered fragments of you heart to God, and let Daddy teach you a better way to love, and be a friend.

When you realize fullness of ‪#‎God‬ in you, your ‪#‎lackofcontrol‬ isnt an issue, being ‪#‎weak‬ isnt bad. You are ‪#‎whole‬ in Him. Imagine, all the struggling of "Fixing yourself" is just....done. I have to remind myself of this. The only condition of such mind blowing freedom....is that you show others the road map of how you got out. Its just.....wow. Just wanted to share the refreshing of this amazing and very obtainable #reality.

"Iron Man, puts on steel armor.
Captain America has a shield and was injected with super soldier serum.
Hulk puts on anger, gets swollen incredibly, makes people fear him.
But Christ put on full humanity. Was birthed in a flesh suit, humbling Himself to the death so that we could have life.
So you may like comic, but I Marvel at my Superhero who rose as the greatest Avenger of all time."

Janette is an amazing poetess....WHAT?! Wow.

Not gonna lie...i'm feeling hard pressed, challenged and just down right blue. :( 

I'm missing people I can't see,who are thousands of miles away. Feeling the heat of the trial I'm currently going through. But in the end...I know it's going to be ok. I may not fully know who I am, but I know Who I belong to. He calls me Beautiful (Having a hard time accepting this), the banner of His Kingdom is over me, with Love. & when everyone else seems to be absent in my life, I know He isn't. I know He loves me.

The reason why I am so satisfied being single...because the King puts the banner of His Kingdom, of His love, over me. :)

The reason why Peter began sinking was because his focus changed. Instead of looking at Jesus and resting in his power, Peter looked down at his situation and feared, thinking it was impossible. I have to remind myself that it's through focusing on Jesus, resting in His power and not focusing on the "impossibilities" of my situations, that breakthrough comes.  :) <3

Ok world, about the whole 12 yr old girls and the #Slenderman thing... those kids aren't stupid. WHERE ARE THE PARENTS in this? If you were all up in a kids business instead of trying to be a child's "Friend" this could have been avoided!!! UGh.

I had an interesting conversation with some people about what it was women wanted. The question was: "True or False? Women are wired to desire protection & security which is why they're more attracted to guys with ambition." Here is my response:

I admire a man who has not just ambition, but integrity, initiative and unafraid of having some feelings. Macho-men are a turn off, to my personal taste. I rather have a man w/ a pocket protector who is going somewhere and goes the extra mile than Rico Suave who's lazy and only does "just enough".
The one person I know, who changed my life and the way I view men and what's important...has no real "self confidence". To me, what is just admirable and frankly attractive about him was his passion and commitment for God, and the confidence he had in Him, and that without Him, he wouldn't be much. To me, i rather have that, than all the confidence in the world, or all the papi chulos (a spanish term for "macho man") with good looks, fancy cars, nice clothes and money.

Honestly, that is my heart. I want a man with confidence in God, not so much himself. A man who is takes initiative, is not satisfied with a "just so" life, but wants more for himself, a man with a integrity. Above all, a man who loves God and wants to fulfill the calling of God in his life. This is why I remain single, and I'm so picky. There are only a few, very very very few, men I know who have these key characteristics. Which is why they are all married. Their wives were smart. Only one man I know fits this criteria. And I know God has a special woman for him. And I also know, it's not me. And I'm ok with that. :)

"So when I was emancipated, it was my duty to proclaim it.
Because my praise is simply response to my God who is gracious.
And it baffles me!
That some of you, will go to your concerts of the favorite artist you have...sing along, jump around and even scream.
Then get in church and sitting still and be quiet and say 'You know, that's just not me.'"
Janette does it again....amazing. Nothing like powerful, in your face truth. Wooh.

INCREDIBLE piece on Weed. Yes, Weed. Somethings we can't afford to handle as taboo.

To make a note: as she speaks, think of a person that has dual personalities: The so called "nice" side, and the true ugly side.
Excellent piece of poetry!

For anyone who complains about crowded highways and traffic, you ain't seen nothing till you're stuck in this. & yet, there are more accidents here in the states than over there. Hilariously true! #LATraffic is nothing! #morefuninthephilippines   #GottaLoveAsia #crazytraffic

Old article, but hey, it's Chuck Norris....You know what happens to people who go against Chuck. :p On a serious note, I applaud him. It may make me unpopular, but I stand for traditional marriage. Sorry Congress (not really).
