scars and brave heart

To the woman who is so strong in life yet admits that she’s weak and nothing without God,
It’s funny how life works itself out like that. Our unexpected friendship has filled a hole in my life that I didn’t know existed. We’ve been friends for God-knows-how-long, and you’re always there for me even if chaos and the lies of the enemies tries to tear us apart, but I thank God that we aren’t slave of hate anymore but of Love and Compassion.

Our genuine friendship is something that only you, I, and God can understand. Little did I know by heart, the kind girl I was genuinely trying to befriend was going hopelessly through a whirlwind of different obstacles. Underneath all of that personal fear was naturally a beautiful girl who dearly needed love. God just kept undoubtedly telling me to naturally love and listen.


As we are carefully navigating through a challenging time, I want to tell you that I can relate to any struggle you may be facing during this critical period of your life. I also want to tell you that I understand how hard it may be to constantly battle the shackles of temptation, how challenging it can be to keep up with your spiritual food, and how difficult it may be to love unconditionally in a world that seems to become progressively evil and increasingly harder to love.

I want to tell you that I understand those sleepless nights where you paint the pictures of failure way before you give love and acceptance a chance to blossom, and also regardless of what obligation others may impose on you because you are a believer, you are unentitled to please anyone but Him alone. Know you do not have to be perfect, but instead strive to channel all the wonderful characteristics of our Creator.

It still amazes me to see how God has worked and is still working with you each day. You’re becoming the woman that God will always be proud of and I’m so honored I get to see your growth. Your unique strength? I don’t think I‘ve ever met someone stronger.

I’m really thankful for this kind of friendship. We balance each other out in the best way possible. Because of you, I’ve learned to stop caring what people think and to do my own thing regardless of any backlash I might receive.

When Im at risk of thinking I can understand grace by figuring it out, a sister’s love like yours keeps me grounded. I have learned far more of what almighty Christ looks like through your joyous laughter and brave heart. Some divine mysteries can only be understood from the inside; as they say unconditional love can’t be analyzed, only received.

I can talk with you about anything, and you would drop whatever you’re doing to help me in any situation. You know by heart when I need gentle encouragement. You know when I am at my best and when I am at my worst. You always know exactly what to say graciously. You have naturally encouraged me to find my wings, to faithfully keep growing into the extraordinary person God has undoubtedly made me to be.

We cannot give up. And we cannot believe He has given up on us.
We must gratefully remember who we are, but more importantly, who our Creator is. And anything we typically face, any obstacle that stands in the puzzled way is never too big for the God we faithfully serve.


It’s as if I dearly wished up a best friend, suddenly you appeared right in front of me. I am so beyond blessed to have you as my sister and a friend in Christ. You didn’t choose to be my sister. You did choose and do keep choosing.
With a grateful heart,

“Good friends will empower you to be brave and strong and generous and whole on your own.”

Through ups and downs and… Thicker thighs. (charot)

BUT ABOVE ALL, It was undoubtedly GOD who never fail to genuinely surprise me. It was assuredly Him who intentionally brought us together, and it was precisely Him who faithfully preserves our unique friendships go deeper as we sufficiently learn to share His love unconditionally.

AND ONE DAY, we‘ll explore diverse places to passionately pursue grander dreams and hopes and also to push towards God’s call into our lives.

SO I am going along with you guys to savor everything, even the cloudy moments because what really matter is sincerely the unconditional love and valuable life lessons we have instantly shared with us to grow more and be brave… Really brave in resolutely facing what God has uniquely prepared for us.

I am genuinely excited!!! :)

You Don’t Deserve To Be Loved

Yet you are loved nonetheless.

There are so many people who I would hear crying and demanding every single day with the same sentiment, “I deserve to be loved.”

And there are also hundreds of times I witnessed friends and family responding with, “Yes. You really do deserve to be loved. So go, leave that person and find that one who would love you like no other.”

I hate to break it, sweetheart. I might even be the first one to say this. You may not even agree with me but today, I want you to hear the other side of the story, “You don’t deserve to be loved but you are loved nonetheless.”

Isn’t that a better truth to live out every day rather than having so much self-entitlement to be loved by people who are also equally hungry for the very love that no human being is capable…
