I am the LORD your God; consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am holy. - Leviticus 11:44
I always knew of God as a friend. Chummy Chummy lang ako lagi sa Kanya. Friends kami eh. Ganun ko Siya nakilala, bata pa ako nun eh. :)
Then came the time when I realized that He is also my Father. That friendships may fade, but Family lasts. And that I can come to Him just as I am and still be accepted no matter what.
Now is the time for me to see Him as Holy. And that He has all the Authority over my life and everything else. That I am not in the same level as Him. That my place towards Him will always be in reverence of what He has done for me. And that I have nothing to boast.
Grateful of this new season of meekness and humility. It’s gonna be hard but I’m praying for the grace to obey.
For the my sake and the sake of this generation!

1 Corinthians 9:23
The Lord loves you. He has always been with you. He has never ever turned against you. He is not like them. He won’t abandon you. He won’t give you false hopes. He will never take advantage of you. He will never give you any burden you can not carry…He will, in fact, personally help you go through your burdens. He won’t lie to you. He keeps His promises. He disciplines out of love. He’s proud of you. He personally knows you..everything about you… He’s serious about you.
He doesn’t need you but still, even before you knew about Him, He has demonstrated His great love for you.
He’s that intentional in loving you.
He constantly reminds you of who you are. He constantly forgives. He is slow to anger. He is patient. He is very patient.
He is constantly pursuing you.
He protects you. He is mindful of you. He is your best friend. He listens to you…even when you keep ranting about the same things…even when you commit the same mistakes…
He doesn’t grow weary.
He is not like them.
He is your Father. The Lover of your soul.
He was the One who found you…almost around 2 years ago…crying…when everything became nothing.
He raised you up.
And He has been with you ever since…even before before.
He tells you, you are beautiful everyday.
He values you.
He is happy when you’re happy. Sad when you’re sad.
He gives you everything you need.
He is everything you need.
He really wants you to rest now.
He will wake you up tomorrow because He wants you to co-work with Him so that you will know more about His love for you.
How do I view God? He is, my heart, my motivation and inspiration. He is the founder of my purpose, my creator, my protector. He is the very source of Love because He IS LOVE. He is Holy, Perfect, He is everything I am not. He is a mystery, He is deep, He is an adventure to discover and know. AND biggest of all, HE SPEAKS TO ME. God isn’t a silent, angry God. He is open and willing and waiting for anyone who will receive Him.
I could go on forever. He just is…

Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again—my Savior and my God! - Psalm 43:5
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. - 2 Cor. 1:3-4
Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. - Philippians 3:13-14
For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. - 1 John 5:4
I am not afraid to be vulnerable. I don’t pretend I’m strong all the time. I am not holier than them. This is the reason why I ask God to work in me. So that I may not get the glory in what I do, but put point them all back to Him.
It’s all about Jesus. I know that. They know that.
