SHE likes a girl – a lesson from her friend’s experience.


(This story was my friend’s story. I was inspired to create it for my friend)

Whenever I see two individuals who happened to have the same sex – most especially with girls – having sweet gestures to each other, my mind creates a usual judgement: Disgust.

Curiosity will grow over my system as I keep on throwing questions on myself. Why would they choose the same girl over a guy? Whatever the reason is, I can hardly understand it especially the idea that they have the same sex.

Perhaps, the truth is, you can never understand it until you experience it. Or at least someone close to your heart experienced it.

SHE likes a girl. She is clueless why it happened to her. She can hardly explain her emotions to that girl. She was just certain that whenever she saw that girl, her heart would suddenly jump and would go crazy. That whenever the girl texted her and called her with sweet names, her heart will have an irregular heartbeats. That it will create a sudden tug to her heart.

And the girl that she likes is lesbian.

She really doesn’t have any idea on what may be the culprit of liking that girl. She doesn’t know why she was greatly hooked up on that girl. She knew at the first place that it was a great sin and she had tried to divert her attention to others; however, her emotions continued to compel her from that girl. That the moment she saw that girl online on facebook, she’ll immediately wish that she would receive a message from her.

My friend shared this to me hoping that her feeling on that girl will be removed. Hoping that if she revealed this to someone close to her, her feeling to that girl will fade away.

I was shocked the moment I heard this from my friend knowing her personally. I can’t even swallow the story she entailed to me that it took me few moments to finally understand her. She never experience having a boyfriend, so I was surprised by her revelation. But what I told her is to never listen to her emotions. I convinced her that she is meant for a man. That God created a lady like her to be married to a deserving man.

Seeing my friend’s pain from this kind of situation, I wanted to offer my entire time to help her cope up with it. And I promise that as long as I am here, I am willing and I will be willing to help her and take care of her.

   But with this kind of situation, I fully understand one lesson – to remove the negative judgement towards individuals who happened to like the same sex as them. Besides I don’t know their stories, I just saw them passing by.

God bless Everyone. In case you no longer remember me, Amae here 🙂 check out my personal blog, www.amaeguerrero.wordpress.com  That would mean a lot for me. Thank you!

there is one purpose that never changes


tpl_7_pplThere are times in life we all get lost, lose direction or even lose our sense of purpose in the world. To feel you have no purpose is to feel useless and unwanted or unneeded. This is not what God or Jesus wants for us, even when we loose direction and feel we have no purpose there is always serving God. No matter what, there is one purpose that never changes and gives meaning to ones life. Even if you are not sure of how or in what way to serve God, just live each day being the best person you can be and help those in need and unable to help themselves in any way you are able. God has plans for all of us, there is no such thing as a useless person. Even those that have hit rock bottom and seem to have no hope in returning to a life with God in it are not hopeless or useless. Through Christ and God all is possible.and therefore there is no one who can not change or be changed.

No matter how low you get or how far you stray from the flock, There is a hand reaching out to give you hope and salvation. Jesus is always reaching out to us all, the choice to accept his hand is yours.

Fear, Faith’s Greatest Enemy


English: A cross close to the church in Grense...

Fear, faith‘s greatest enemy. If we let fear get the best of us, we are putting fear before our faith in God and his promises and we are also putting fear before our savior as well. We are not meant to be full of fear, we are meant to be full of faith, hope and joy as Christians. Living in constant fear is not living at all, fear consumes ones mind, time and energy leaving little for life, love and serving God. If we believe in the promises of the father and the grace given through Christ we should not fear anything but God himself.

Shew! Isn’t it tough to keep our promises, to say what we mean?

I’ve been in situations where I’ll make a promise and long behold not come to hold my end of the deal. There are so many things that keep us busy, keep us distracted to the point of which a person doesn’t seem to have enough time in a whole day to finished, to cram all that into. People say well wish i could have came to church but i so had this or that but i’ll try to fit it in next time and come…..this is happening more and more each and everyday. I want everyone to know that i’m not bashing those who aren’t able to come because we all know that jobs are important, we are to work to make a living but, when we start to put just about anything before serving our Lord…

is a blessing


016 Each morning we awaken to is a blessing, Every person who love us and we love are blessings as well. Each meal we eat is a blessing, every breath we take is a blessing as well. Every smile we see is a blessing in deed and every smile we give is a blessing to both ourselves and those we smile at. Having a job is a blessing, even if the job isn’t ideal or stressful it is still a blessing not to be unemployed.  Every friend we have, had and will have are blessings for they are like family and sometimes even more. Even enemies can be blessings for they teach us how not to be and sometimes help us see the faults within our own character.

Each day we have here on earth is a blessing if we see it, know it, admit it,  realize it or not. So many things we take for granted that are great blessings and so many things we forget to give thanks for as well.

My own self


p10104 There has been times in my life I allowed my low self-esteem and lack of self-confidence to stop me from getting a good job or just getting a job done. The only thing that stood in my way of getting the job or doing the job was my own self. Like others I allowed my fears, insecurities and self-doubt to limit me and keep me from the possibilities that were before me. It is so easy to excuse your way through life, never to face change and never to leave your comfort zone. The cost of living in such a way in the end is quite high, you miss so much of life and you never get to experience life as the person you were born to be.

I have learned you can blame others for the bad things in your life all you want, but the truth is that you alone make the choices that creates what your life is like, going to change into and ultimately will become. It is your choice if you allow others to influence and/or control aspects of your life. Others only have the power that you allow them to have over you and your life.

tpl0008So it all boils down to what choices you make and what external influences you allow to play a part in your life. The choice is always yours, even when you choose to allow others to make a choice for you.

Your life is the sum of the experiences you have had and the choices you have both made and avoided.

The greatest gift one can get


Stained glass at St John the Baptist's Anglica...Ah the Christmas shopping season seems to start earlier each year, Seems Christmas has become more of a shopping experience than an actual celebration of the birth of our savior Jesus Christ. Commercialism of Christmas has slowly dragged our minds and hearts further away from the reason for the season. Though we all still celebrate Christmas and are thankful on that day for our savior, there is way too much emphasis on the presents.  Who will buy or get the biggest and best gifts seems more important to some than the actual meaning of the day we celebrate. Nothing wrong with buying big gifts, all I am saying is the greatest gift one can get we all have received on that historical and holy day of the birth of our savior. We should remember to be thankful and celebrate the fact we were blessed on that day so many years ago. Remember the Manger, remember the life and remember the death along with the resurrection. Remember Our Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ. And try to remember the lessons Jesus taught us all.

Hope, Faith and the acceptance of God’s will is the path, Acceptance of Jesus as our savior is the way.

Hope this gets the “mind” a going.

One Life, One Goal, One God, Infinite Possibilities

"A Storm is Coming"We all have faced storms somewhere throughout our lives rather it’d be those that pass over a short period or of those that took years to pass through but, we’ve beaten all that have passed through. There is still a storm yet to come that will be our biggest storm that our eyes have faced yet. This storm is like no other we’ve faced before our little human eyes, one that will change everything we know about the world, about, life. Can it be stopped, Do we want to stop it? You see when we are faced up against something that we have no control over we get scared, we begin to question our own judgement which through my own eyes is never good, nothing good can come from relying on our judgement in situations as of this one soon to come. We come face to face with many storms…
