Okay, I’ve been lost for days. I’m lost in my sea of thoughts. Been wondering how to manage these things running inside my head. Maybe because of this community quarantine that’s why I’m always bothered with something. Ever since this community lockdown happened in the country, my sleeping pattern had changed… I’m always up until 3 am. I can’t sleep, maybe because I don’t put my phone down 1 hour earlier. My sleeping schedule right now is not good for the health. I feel so lonely. Every late at night I constantly checking our dog because he’s sick, he had nose bleeding in the last 2 days and he vomited a while ago. He’s not feeling well that’s why im always checking, im afraid he might collapse and no one will notice. Another one, I’ve been ignoring my family for days. I don’t also know why??? I’m just annoyed, or this is my ass acting jealous to my younger bro. I always knew he is the favorite, so yeah i should be out of the picture right? It’s okay for me even though it annoys me. I love the idea of being alone but not the idea where i am alone with the freaking thoughts in my mind. For me being alone is not really bad, you are just there, not minding what other people will tell you on how you will act. You can decide without someone saying its good or bad. But i dont like the idea of being alone in a house lol. Im a coward, afraid of the dark. My idea of alone is not minding me on my own world, just leave me there in the side and dont ask me anything. Im just there doing my thing and you continue what you’re doing to. Honestly, having friends is a bit burden for me. This hate thing toward friendship started when i was in highschool and i have two friends. They hide their relationship to me for almost 2 years, idk. Im so angry to them, thus not talking to them for a year? Because i dont want to hear their side. There relationship is not just the normal relationship that we knew those years tho, that’s the reason why im so angry because of how they’ve hidden this relationship despite of them being a christian. Well, im okay with them now, i said sorry to them for being bad towards them that time. But ever since it happened, I’ve lost trust to every person i met. Even my hs best friends, i dont trust them that much but if you will compare them to my friends today at college… I’ll choose my hs friends. My college friends are… i dont know how to describe, well i think they dont like me ever since 2016? Haha. I don’t know, i just feel it and i feel sorry if im clinging to them up until now. I dont know if my feelings toward them is right and im so sorry to them college friends because i feel this way towards them. Trust issue at its finest. So, this is too long. My english is not perfect despite being an english quizzer in hs. I’m drowning in my sea of thoughts right now that’s why im writing this. I want to write a story but i dont know how…
And the angel said to her: Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God. Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the most High; and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father; and he shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever. And of his kingdom there shall be no end. - Luke 1:30-33

Ephesians 4:26 - Be angry, but do not be willing to sin. Do not let the sun set over your anger.
Whatever evil we face, Christ’s cross and resurrection assure us we’ll see God’s salvation. One day we’ll experience His final liberation.

I wonder if I can ask God to make me a Chinese fair maiden in my next life. Not that I’m not happy with my “exotic” features (knock on wood) but like…
I NEED TO STOP WATCHING CHINESE FANTASY DRAMAS!!!!!!!!!!! *facepalm*
03/25/2020 Verse of the day! 🌸
It’s interesting to me that patience is a key into being perfect and complete. Patience is something I lack heavily with myself. All I see is my flaws and where/who I want to be and I feel like I’ll never reach it. Why can’t I just be perfect NOW? Well.. I know in time I will become more and more like who God wants me to be but until Jesus comes back or I die I will have to continue working towards being more like Him. I have to learn to be patient.
On another note the world’s current situation is quite.. well let’s just say we need a lot of patience in this scenario as well. Praying for those who are struggling. Remember God will take care of it all, just have patience, and trust Him. ❤️
Hey uh I’m bored and the first thing that came to my mind was oddly specific
I guess you can send in stuff you heard about Mormons or something and I can confirm if it’s true or not. Accepting anything and everything

~Matthew 13:31-35 🌿💕🌳
“Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man 👨 took, and sowed in his field: Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest 💪 among herbs 🌿 , and becometh a tree 🌳 , so that the birds 🦅 of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof. Another parable 🗣 spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman 👩 took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened. All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them: That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet,📣 saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world 🌍 .”
🔈A mustard seed… it’s beginning is small, but when it is grown, it is the greatest among all herbs 🌿 and becomes a tree 🌳. Wow. Even the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof. It sounds like this passage is talking about Jesus or ourselves. Jesus began, as a human being, small, but grown He is the greatest and now sitting 🪑 at the right hand of God. And we (the birds?) come to Him.
And we also start off small, but grow and become greater. 🔉Leaven in three measures of meal. Until it was fully leavened. When we hear Gods word, it normally remains inside our heart. One day we become a new creation by Gods word (and love and offering of course).

mediate on this verse:
Truly my soul finds rest in God;
my salvation comes from him.
This is so powerful! I would love to know your thoughts on it. Take a second to comment down below👇
I can see Your heart in everything
You say. Every painted sky,
A canvas of Your grace.
A brief thought based on Romans 6:23 – “Sin pays off with death. But God’s gift is eternal life given by Jesus Christ our Lord.”
“But if we confess our sins to God, he can always be trusted to forgive us and take our sins away.” (1 John 1:9 – Contemporary English Version) No one is perfect. We all make mistakes. And for the that reason, we should be willing to confess our mistakes and, when necessary, ask for forgiveness. But while those around us may continue to hold a grudge, God never will. His forgiveness is absolute and eternal.
