“For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed– a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: The righteous will live by faith.”
I grew up from a Catholic family, but we rarely go to church. When the pandemic started, I witnessed myself seeking and surrendering to Jesus and I can’t explain the feeling. I’ve never felt this way before, it feels like the weight of my burdens became light and I can finally breathe. but when my family found out that I wasn’t attending a Catholic church instead I started attending a certain Christian church they gave me a look. I mean, what’s wrong? I’m still worshiping and praising the same God. I’m still believing that Jesus is my savior. Is denomination really matters even when you’re worshiping the same God? I would really appreciate your opinions and suggestions.
🎶What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
O precious is the flow
that makes me white as snow;
no other fount I know;
nothing but the blood of Jesus. 🎶
“Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.”
Joseph Addison, writer (1 May 1672-1719)
God’s faithfulness will never run out on you.
God’s faithfulness will never leave you alone.
God’s faithfulness will never let you down.
To Hope Again
You long for death,
And it doesn’t ever come.
Yet, relentlessly, you search for it more than for hidden treasures.
You’ve become envious of the bones that have dried before your own.
Because you’ve tried waiting for your turn, but it’s been too long.
So you’ve decided to take matters into your own hands.
I’m talking to the sad soul.
You rejoice and are filled with gladness when you finally find your treasured grave.
But neither feasting or dancing are your response.
Instead, taking your life is how you’ve decided that you would like to celebrate.
Because you’ve had enough.
And you want out.
You’ve learned to hate light because it seems it has hid its rays from you.
So you’ve figured that a permanent solution to a temporary problem will do.
I’m talking to the bitter soul.
Would you scoff and dismiss me?
Have your ears learned to spontaneously tune out any sound of encouragement?
‘Hope’ has become just another empty promise that adds on to your list of pains.
I’m talking to the wounded soul.
But I want you to listen to me, friend.
And I want you to listen to me carefully.
The pain that you’ve been carrying all these years is too much for you.
And you aren’t able to bear them on your own.
You’ve tried to.
And it’s why the mere thought of robbing yourself of your last breathe brings comfort to you.
I’m talking to the heavy laden soul.
I will be your strength.
Because my well is everlasting.
I have given you free access to draw from me whenever you feel like you just can’t go on,
When you just can’t make it through another day.
I’m talking to the desperate soul.
Your heart has been bruised.
But regardless of how messed up it is,
Despite whatever condition it is in,
I want it.
Every single piece of it.
Even the pieces that have been broken and torn off, will I take.
Because I have plans to mend, to heal, and to restore you.
You are precious to me.
Your broken heart is precious to me.
And, honey, I promise that in me, your soul will finally find the rest that it so desperately has been longing for.
I’m talking to the searching soul.
And hear me closely.
You will live.
In me, through me, and by me you will live.
And the light that you once hated, friend, I will make you to become.
The pain that once consumed you, child, to it will you be numb.
The treasured grave you once searched for will be a thing of your past.
Because I’m giving you a testimony for the souls that carry the weight that you once had.
I’m talking to the freed soul.
Your Savior, your Redeemer, and your Hope,
 Wherefore is light given to him that is in misery, and life unto the bitter in soul;
 Which long for death, but it cometh not; and dig for it more than for hid treasures;
 Which rejoice exceedingly, and are glad, when they can find the grave?
 Why is light given to a man whose way is hid, and whom God hath hedged in?
 For my sighing cometh before I eat, and my roarings are poured out like the waters.
 For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.
 I was not in safety, neither had I rest, neither was I quiet; yet trouble came.
 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
Hope, Trust, and Love
Hope, Trust, and Love
Lately, I’ve been clinging to the promises of God. The world we once knew has changed a lot and at warp speed. The unfamiliarity of present circumstances has had many of us on edge. But God tells us not to be anxious or afraid. Therefore, we need to seek out the source of all spiritual encouragement: The Bible. God’s living word is our spiritual sustenance. Supernaturally,…
Hey I just wanted to say, thanks to everyone who subscribed to my channel and supports me and my music. It means the world to me, because you guys are helping me achieve my dreams, which is the most important thing in the world to me.
The other day my best friend and I actually had a talk about having a dream. And we both realized that most people we know do not, infact have a dream. Including him. He said, he was proud of me, because I have a dream and because I am trying to go after it.
It makes me sad, knowing that most people do not dream. It has become such a privilege to even hope.
But all I know is that I have wanted this since I was even able to think. And I will want this, until I can’t breath anymore. It is really frustrating because sure, if I had the money and right connections, I would be so much further in my goals. But I am trying really hard with what I have. And I just try and try and hope one day, I will make it. Dreaming is the only thing keeping me sane. And I am mainly writing this last part for me because sometimes, I have to remind myself that it’s okay to not achiev everything immediately. That great things take time. But my impatience is making me hopeless at times. It also feel very foreign to ask people to listen to my music. To try and promote myself but that is, for me at least, the only way I can make myself heard.
So yeah, if you are one of the people helping me make my dreams come true, making me cling to life, because it makes me feel like this whole thing makes sense, just know your support means the world to me. It really does. I am forever thankful.

We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. WE ARE FAR TOO EASILY PLEASED… -C.S. Lewis
