Everything and more…

Back then, I had myself convinced that through out the months that we have spent together, sharing jokes, laughing at the silliest of things and even talking at the wee hour of the night about the things that troubled us and the things that fill us with hope for the future, I had myself believed that I have finally seen right through you.

The real you.

That out of all the people that I have encountered, you’re the one that stands out.

You never cared how people view you, you’re authenticity and you’re genuine heart makes you shine and sometimes, I think you’re oblivious to it, which makes it even more genuine.

You just love the people around you. You love.

And it’s for that very reason that I have grown to honestly love you.

And I believe it was only a matter of time,

I believe it was inevitable.

But then i realised, it was actually the other way around.

It was you who have actually seen right through me.

When I thought I was invincible,

you saw me.

You made me feel like I am a good person especially at times when I know I’m not.

You really do.

When I thought I couldn’t get any lower than where I was, you say one thing, you do one thing and suddenly, I feel like I can conquer anything.

You are everything and more.

Anyone who have crossed path with you is so very lucky.

I know I am.

I know that you will never get to read this, I don’t know if I will ever get the nerve to tell you this, but at least, by putting this up here, somehow, it would be as if I am sending this to you already.

I guess, what I really wanted to say is that

I love you for all that you are and for all that you are going to be and I hope that it’s in the Lord.

No matter what the future will bring us, or where it will take us, one thing is for sure,

You will always have a special place in my heart.

Too Good to be True.

Some people don’t believe that God is real because the things they hear about Him are just too good to be true.

How are those even possible? Miracles? Supernatural healing? Unbelievable blessings? Man, as much as they hate to admit it, in the deepest corner of their mind, they wish they too can experience those kind of things.

How can those things be true, though? They are just too good to be true.

But the thing is, they are true. Because God is real and God is good.

And only God can ever satisfy whatever longing you have.

Only God can ever fill the void inside your heart.

Only God can give you peace, peace that the world can never offer.

Only God can give you the love that you deserve Рno matter how underserving  you think you are. A love that you not only want but need.

So to you who is reading this,

why don’t you drop everything right now.

whatever baggages that you’re carrying.

why don’t you take a chance on Him,

for it is in God alone will you ever truly find what you’re looking for.

To the One.

Nothing is ever certain. It’s funny, though because in a world of uncertainty, all we want is to be sure (at least so sure about that one thing). Well, I don’t know about you but that is what I really want. I want to be certain about a lot of things but every time I ¬†analyse them, all I am left are questions.

But not about this Thing.

You see, I am not even sure if this blog will ever make it to see through the end, but if this is going to be the first and the last post I will ever write, I want to dedicate it to the One.

The One who knew my name even before I get a glimpse of this world.

The One who loved me even before I knew someone who does love me.

The One who is certain about me.

Jesus.

And so with this, allow me to share about his Grace.

His grace is sufficient.

I never really grasp the full meaning of it until I was face to face with an ocean that one peaceful evening. It strange really, because He used the very thing that is close to my heart to speak to me – the ocean.

I was staring at the shore will all its debris that are sprawled on the sand floor and with every hit of the waves, the debris are washed away and the sands are once again spotless. No litters, no footprints, completely flawless.

And I really believe in my heart that in that moment, He is speaking to me. That no matter who you are, no matter how unworthy or “dirty” you may think or feel, just like the graceful crash of the waves, His Grace for you is sufficient.

His love is so wide, so vast, like an ocean that never runs dry, that He can send waves of grace to wash away even the heaviest of sins.

And like the sand, all you have to do is stay still and embrace it.

Let Him,

receive it,

and although this blog is called runinwonder,

this time, why don’t you stand in wonder.
