Pain is Inevitable

Young and Wild at heart

Sitting on one corner of an empty and dark room, That's how I always imagine myself back in the days in my early age of 14. My first love just announced that he wanted to break up with me. and I cried a lot overnight, so much pain I felt that it seemed like I lost a loved one through death. and it took me a good two years to get over him. especially that this guy just live very near to our house. seeing him everyday is like a torture from deep inside my messed up heart.Thankfully, I was able to recover. There I learned a lot. (To not divulge myself in puppy love, and school before boys). 

It is not a just love story, It is a story about Love and Pain. the inevitable pain that comes with it. Just when you thought everything is so perfect, Life just always find a way to mess it up. I really didn't understand this trend until I experience it myself. so many times.

Fast forward life and  I met one man. I thought I was so lucky to have him, He's just the most generous, lovable, thoughtful man I ever met. he never fails to make me happy. he proposed to me and promised to each other a lifetime of happiness. I was so In-love. Until a year of living together with him sparked something out of him and unleashed a fury and a monster inside him. He started beating me up and locking me inside the house, abused me mentally, and cheated on me. I was crying so hard one time and I remember how I cried a lot for one guy before when I was young. But, this is a different kind of pain now. Getting out of the situation is not very easy (extremely hard I must say) but I managed with the help of my friends and family who cares for me. and there again I learned something new.

Pain and Suffering caters to everyone

These are just some of the experiences that I had. But there are so many kinds of pain we feel in our everyday life, and we always manage to get up and put ourselves back together. as others may wonder, Why do we have to feel this despicable and horrible feeling of pain? whether Physical, mental or emotional. But in my life, Pain is mostly felt the strongest whenever i am in-love. Whether it be love for someone significant, or your family and friends it is something strong that you feel that it amounts the pain that you feel once you've been hurt by them or for them. and for most of us, "The stronger the Love is for another person, the stronger the pain it gives."

Why does God allow it?

When that happens, I struggle with God's goodness. I am deeply troubled by questions of how these things can happen. If God is all powerful, all good, and all knowing, why does he allow pain and suffering in our lives? this is not primarily an intellectual question. In fact, it is rather a question that torments real people as they suffer in their own private anguish and pain. So for those of you sitting here this evening or reading this transcript that are suffering, please recognize, I do not take this lightly. This issue touches us deeply in places where frequently words lose their meaning. In fact, many of who I personally know have confessed that they thought they knew what they believed, until their comfort zone was shattered.

"I always think we experience pain and suffering to experience the reciprocity of it. which is Joy and Happiness."

One individual, who comes to mind as I think of this topic,is someone I came across while browsing for good  christian stories online, He was an excellent public speaker and very healthy. He initially was diagnosed with colon cancer, had that cured, and ultimately started losing strength in his arms and legs and was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
Over the 10 years that he struggled with his disease, and he would always speak about how his body failing him brought him closer to God and allowed him to do writing and teaching that he would otherwise never have done.And there he would say with the sweetest and most sincere expression, that there was no way that he would trade his healthy body that he had before for the sorry state of his soul, and that he had no regrets.

God's Love is the best painkiller

God's Unconditional Love is the only kind of Love that saves you, and heal you, and change you, and put you to a somewhat dimension of peace and tranquility. Sometimes, The greatest things arouse from a deep trauma or suffering. which will led you to a full 360 degree turn in your life. or to test our faith. God allows pain for you to learn things, realize that we are all human, and come to him for comfort from all the earthly things. and it changes us. contemplate that it is not always a paradise. Life is what has God gifted for you to feel it,  to overcome it and love it. after all, we are all just living here temporarily. Our Home is where God's kingdom is in heaven. And in there, no pain and suffering. Only Love. And that kind of love is the only LOVE in which you will never get hurt or feel pain in return. So it might be not as easy as it may seem, But feel it, and own it. Pain is inevitable so might as well enjoy it. Do not worry, God is always with you!

God loves you!

Verses to Ponder

Jesus Felt Pain

Hebrews 2:18

 "For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted."

Pain Leads to Repentance

2 Corinthians 7:9-10 

"As it is, I rejoice, not because you were grieved, but because you were grieved into repenting. For you felt a godly grief, so that you suffered no loss through us. For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death."

Hope in the Future

Revelation 22:4-5 

"They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever."

Romans 8:18 

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us."

My Goals and Bucket List

You might think the title seems a little cliche. but i thought to myself, I just turned 31 last week and I'm officially a young adult. Whew! (Which means in Philippine mortality rate, I only have 27 years to live on this planet added 7 years because I totally avoided smoking for more than a year and quit drinking but only a little  red wine on some occasions which is beneficial to our health.) So a few bucket list wont hurt me. Though I already did set some goals before I turned 30, I am sharing them anyway. this can actually help me set my goals straight and enjoy life a little bit more.

So as they say, since i am posting this in public, It means that i am held accountable for my words and more likely to accomplish them. Hopefully!

So, here we go.

 Bucket list:

1. Own a big parrot  as a pet.

2. Visit the beautiful beaches of  Bali Indonesia, Maldives, and Gold coast, Australia.

3.. Grow an edible backyard garden.

4. Stay in Marina bay sands and swim in their infinity pool.

5. Visit at least 5 Asian countries aside from Singapore. (2 to go)

5. To maintain a deep relationship with God.

These are just a few. I might add some more along the way. and I strongly feel that God will help me accomplish them by his graciousness! The most important thing is how you live your life and share it to others. because as what God said in his scriptures. This earthly place we live in is only temporary and we should invest more on our life after death. The Eternal life with GOD.

2 Corinthians 5:1

5 "For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands"

Much love,

A Woman's Journey through LIFE


She looks amazingly into her newborn's eyes while caressing his tiny little body, "I am a mom now", with fears in her eyes the 21 year old gal murmured. She couldn't contain her emotions. All of a sudden, so many things popped up in her mind, worries and excitement as to how can she possibly raise him. so many fears. "how about his education? His milk? How can i do it?".  It's a never ending question. But then, in a split second she composed herself and said "There's no turning back now."

Her parents forced her to get married at young age of 21. When she got pregnant by her that time boyfriend of two years. and boy, it wasn't easy coming out in the open and just change you life dramatically just because she got pregnant. Her parent stopped paying for her school, asked her to work and get married right away. Which of course wasn't her parents fault for ruining her life, She didn't blame them. She thought she was the one responsible and it all happened because of one mistake. But looking at her newborn baby, she thought to herself, "how could this possibly be a mistake? this gorgeous little man in my arms is not a mistake." He is her source of strength and from there she will learn to stand on her own feet. She worked hard. paid for her own food and get her own apartment with the help of her husband. It was fine for sometime.

But then, two years later, her marriage didn't work out. Maybe they are too young to establish a family. maybe they both have not fully understood how is it to be together and make it work as a family.  She cant figure it out.  But sadly, She failed her marriage at a young age of 23.  And being a single mom, holding her son's hand she felt the fear again on raising him on her own. She was motionless, devastated as to what is the next step. She needed guidance.

Her life was hard after her separation, she prayed to God as if why things like that needed to happen to her, but it seems like there's no answer. Job was too evasive for her. Her estranged former husband just couldn't care less to her or just to their child which is now 3 years old. Without any financial support, She became a single parent to his son. "Its a bit more challenging now" she thought. with a sense of motivation, she added "there's no one to depend on but only myself and my own earnings for me and my son." She did everything to support her child and now that her parents has broken up as well just like what happened to her, She (mom) depended on her as well. Getting just the basic needs is hard for a single parent and a breadwinner. It was the dark and hard times of her life for survival. and she was too far for asking God's intervention.

She was broke.

Call center job has been her life saver, She joined so many BPO company one after another. looking for greener pastures. She managed to stay in this job for three years. and her earnings was sufficient enough to support her family. Sufficient is the key word. Its only for basic necessities. Until one night, her greatest fear suddenly came. her mom suffered a stroke. she cant move her body, she rushed her to the hospital and stayed there for two weeks. Paid a merely 300 dollar bill for her recovery in a public hospital. This time, She was crying and prayed very hardly to God for help. She doesn't have any money. But gladly, her friends who supported her helped her to pay for it. She helped her mom coped up with the sad incident in her life. Juggling things with working during the night, looking after her then 6 yrs old kid and taking care of her mom at home. Sometimes she was lucky to have relatives who helped her look after her mom when she needed  rest. She was restless. But they managed to stay alive. and they survived. and they continue to struggle and live.  Then another incident hit her.  Her Son got hospitalized after a year for an unknown sickness, he cant move his legs and cannot stand. always crying for a painful head trauma. She have only 100 dollars in her wallet to spend for the month, so there's nothing left for hospitalization bills payment. but a "good" friend donated her some money to pay for his son's hospitalization. which turns out that money he donated will be used as a blackmail to get her to sleep with him. What a life.

Then years later.

One sunny day, strange thing happened when she came to know GOD accidentally when a friend invited her to a Christian church, She felt a strong feeling of relief when one women came to her and addressed her fears and that God was waiting for her to come. She cried heavily while that woman prayed for her. Strongly, its like a very big burden has been released inside her body!God was with her! She literally fell on her knees and asked for God's acceptance and forgiveness. God has waited long enough for her and now is the time!


Everything was all clear to her now.  It's all making sense. that God gave her trials and tribulations to purposely strengthen her but HE didn't leave her alone. God was there in her life even though she didn't personally know him yet. HE was there on every single time of her life and she didn't knew until now. That those times when she needed help, its not a coincidence that she manage to get a good job or get help from people. it was HIM who helped her. She guessed that maybe she was too stubborn to accept god's help that time she refuses to declare it.  But NO,  HE didn't leave her.

Months later, she risked going abroad and finally met the man of her dreams who supported her and loved her dearly. At the age of 30, they are now planning to get married.  She devoted her time to God and lived accordingly to his words. Her faith became stronger each time. and She felt the inner peace she have been looking for. Her son now goes to a Christian school and honing him to be a better man someday, maybe preparing him for his own battles in Gods time. Her Mom is continuously gaining her health back and in good shape. She know its not the end of the road, but surely she knows that she is in good hands as she accepts God as his companion, savior, redeemer and best friend she will ever have. There's NOTHING to FEAR.

 what a JOY it is to see how God works in our life! So what's your story?
