Journey to the light


I walked relentlessly as I examined the place where I am. I don’t know this place, even a single hint could hardly help me. It was all black, darkness surrounds the place. I continued to walk on a straight – I could feel – barren path. With a vague vision, I saw a television set and a lawn chair.

I immediately went there to see the television set. But atop of the television, was a compact disc with a title, “Your story”, written lucidly. Curiosity ate my system as if compelling me to open the cd case and watch it. Yes, for a moment, I had the urge to put it on the player and hit the play button.

As the disc started playing, I was appalled. I fluttered my eyelids making sure that what I’m watching is true. It was a young lady having a conversation with her friends, maligning their foes with unbelted words. The disc continued to play. The lady, along with her friends, was now making some kind of pranks to her classmates. She was insensitive to the feelings of her classmates that she extended her jokes to the most injurious way.

“Waaaaah!” I shrieked out as I can no longer bare the content of the disc. I shut down the player as I felt really humiliated.

The young lady on the disc was me, in my worst character ever.

I can’t help myself but cry as I realized how I was so wicked. I knelt down realizing that I’m still on this strange dark place. I knelt down in pain realizing how I messed up my life, how I insensitively attacked others, and how I butchered others with my negative words. I moaned with regret filling the deafening silence of this dark place.

Until, a light which halted me from horrible crying immediately came over from the ceiling. I hardly know the source of the light. It was like a spotlight glaring on my body. I froze for a moment not knowing what to do, but a manly voice spoke: “Do not be afraid.” I flinched back as I heard the voice that caused my heart beat irregularly.

He bestowed His hand to me, “Come, I will never leave you nor forsake you.” He, without any glint of condemnation wholly accepted me despite of all my blemishes, and shortcomings. Right at the moment, I seized and accepted His hands without any doubts and any mark of regret. I throw away everything which isn’t pleasing to Him – all things that separated me from Him.

When I’m alone, when no one seems to watch my actions, He is the only one who surely knows me, who surely knows who I am.

I am Airamae A. Guerrero, a future journalist and Christ’s disciple. I was once been lost, but now was able to embrace and receive the light coming from Him. Though sometimes I fall short, He never forsakes me. There’s nothing greater than taking the right path, journeying with Him. I owe him a lot for who and what I am today, it is all because of His unconditional love.

The best is yet to come and this is just the start of my  journey to the light.

There is always hope and Salvation


p10108Nobody is useless, nobody is beyond help. As long as they are alive they can improve, change be transformed and Saved by God, Jesus and the holy spirit. Even the most vile of humans can be born again and saved by the grace of Jesus. The love God has for us all he gave us his only begotten son and that son Jesus offered himself up in sacrifice for all our sins. So how can anyone truly be a lost cause or beyond help if the sacrifice of Jesus was for all of humanity? There is always hope and with acceptance of Jesus there is salvation. Don’t let that old devil try to fool you that you are not savable or that things are hopeless, he wants you to doubt the promises and power of God. He wants you to lose faith and be fruitless for God. Just remember the devil is a great deceiver and can make you think things are fact when they are fiction. Put your faith in God and Jesus and learn to put the lies and deception of the evil one behind you. Let the bible be your guide through life. Most of all pray and give thanks daily if not multiple times a day.

God bless

Just as Jesus taught us to do, He will do for us the same.


English: Jesus Christ - detail from Deesis mos...

When we learn to put aside all our worries and stress we find that happiness is such an easy thing to obtain. As my mom always told me, let go and let God, thus let God handle all the stressful situations and let him be the source of your strength. Jesus taught if we see a neighbor or even a stranger carrying a heavy load that we should help that person carry the load. If they ask you to carry it a part of the way, you should carry it all the way. The compassion, fellowship and kindness in your heart should always inspire you to help others. Just as Jesus taught us to do, He will do for us the same. Jesus will help carry your load when you need it and he will counsel you when you are unable to discern which way to go.

We should practice compassion, understanding and kindness every day, for if we do not show any compassion, kindness or try to be understanding towards others how should we expect the same from God? The same goes for forgiveness, God through Jesus has forgiven us all and we should forgive others through Christ as well. If a person sins against you just remember you are a sinner as well, forgive him and pray for both his forgiveness as well as your own. Love the sinner and hate only the sin, we all have sin in us and none of us are worthy to enter the kingdom of God without Jesus. We also need to learn to forgive ourselves as well, we can not carry the weight of our sins and be forgiven at the same time. Christ died on the cross and was resurrected to wash or cover our multitude of sins. So you pray to be forgiven and truly repent then forgive yourself and forget your sin.

 All our strength, help and forgiveness comes from God through his Son Jesus Christ. We must remember this and thank God for that he has given, will give and even that which he has taken away.
