God wants you!

Do you know how important and special you are? You are important not because of what you have accomplished in life. You are important because God did not create anyone to be less special or less important. And because for God you are important, it is also important for Him to have a relationship with you.

Sometimes, we seek importance from other people and when we don’t feel that they value us, we get insecure and disappointed. We start doubting our value as a person. And that is not what God wants us to feel. He wants us to always feel secure and valued. And He alone can do that for us. To have a relationship with God is the best thing that could happen to you. He can be your Father, your Friend, your Healer, your Provider. He can be everything that no human person will ever be able to do for you.

I hope today, you will give God a chance in your life. He loves you and He wants the best for you.

What’s your worth?

Do you feel like you have to prove your worth to other people? Or, have you allowed other people to define your worth as a person? I just want to let you know that you are not alone.

I reached that point in my life that I was swallowed by all my insecurities. I realized how I have allowed other people to define me. And during those times that I felt rejected, I started comparing myself to other people. I saw myself as unworthy and not worth pursuing for. It was during those times that God reminded me of who I am in His sight. I got reminded that if the Creator who made me -pursues me, accepts me and loves me without conditions, then how other people see me does not matter anymore. My worth is defined by my Creator.

I hope that if you are doubting your worth, you will see yourself the way God sees you.

Little Ignorance is still Ignorance

Every time I go to a bookstore, I always check the notebooks/journal shelf. I really like looking at them, in all different designs, sizes and styles. I believe those who enjoy writing journals would understand me. 🙂 Anyway, as much as I am so fond with the cute designs and pretty colors, I also like clean, classic looking, “leather-ish” covered. If you know what I mean, like the Moleskine notebooks. But every time I check the price, wishing it would go down, just really hurts my pocket. A little one costs almost a thousand pesos. That would be like hundreds of cute journals!!

And so, I would put it back to its shelf.

I have two types of journal, one is for my personal chitchats with God and anything my mind wants to express. The other one is when I do my quiet time and personal study which I use most of the time. Let’s call it journal B. 🙂 Recently, while staring at my journal, I was like, “This looked like a Moleskine notebook.” My journal B has been with me for a long time. It was given after completing a class at the church I used to attend when I was in Vancouver. I just started using it this year. Because it was made personalized with prints at the cover, I just really thought it was a church specific type of notebook. And so, when I noticed it just last week, I turned the other side and yes, that picture up there is my journal. I was like, what???? Haha…

Ignorance, totally or a little bit still means one thing. Still ignorance.

This actually didn’t happen to me once when it comes to my material things. Like a branded top or an expensive pair of sandals. I’m totally clueless of their worth until someone will just tell me or I’ll discover eventually. But then, I thought, well it is okay since at the end of the day it would just be a top or a sandal. All the same.

Upon pondering on these thoughts, I came to think of ignorance on things about God. That one would totally be not okay at all. Because at the end of the day, knowing about God and not knowing about God are totally two different things.

Not knowing God’s promises and His character means having a wrong perspective of God.
Knowing a little about Him, that He is loving and gracious but not knowing that He hates sin means living a deceitful life.
Knowing that there is a Bible but not being aware of what is written means missing the blessing of knowing God.
Not knowing how important we are to God and that we are uniquely designed for a purpose makes us feel insecure that we keep comparing ourselves to others.

By a mere notebook, I got reminded how dangerous ignorance is. God gave us all possible means not to be ignorant about Him, that includes sending His Son, Jesus to this world. God did not give us room to make excuses for ignorance.

It will take forever to know God, so let’s better start now. 🙂 Let’s not be ignorant or stop playing ignorant! 🙂
