I am a tree
flourishing in
the wide open spaces of His grace.

The strong winds will come
and the seasons will change
but my Gardener knows
that because of His strength
I will go on.

I am His tree
and He put me in here
that I may grow.
Deeper and deeper
my roots will go,
and up, up, up,
out my branches reach.

Leaves kissed by the sun,
even dancing in the wind,
making music of praises,
celebrating my life and existence.

My hope remains
that the sight of me
here in these fields
would only reveal
how my Father’s grace,
goodness and faithfulness,
makes everything possible.

He nursed a sapling like me
into a flourishing tree,
a testimony of second chances,
a vessel of His strength,
a life story
of amazing grace.

...(cont) I cried every night and starve myself. I also tried cutting myself due to all my problems. I didn't pray or even talk to God that moment. If we're in church, my mind is not present. But there was this boy, who "loved" me on that dark moments. I talked to him about my problem and he showed/taught me who God really is. He told me to read the bible and pray and I did. He keep on telling me who God really is and that He is there for me. Now, I always pray to God. I tell Him stories... cont

(cont) and found out, He is the best bestfriend there is. I know I can talk to God always. And after that, I didn’t mind my so-called “bestfriends”. I just hope something good will happen to us. Until now, I am a proud daughter of God. :) That’s all.

That’s beautiful. Thank you for sharing this with us, beloved. Let’s keep on flourishing in our Father’s grace and love. :D You’re greatly blessed!

I’ve found love and acceptance
in the very same place
other people find reason
for laughter, mockery and ridicule.
I stumbled upon it and was found
in the arms of a loving Father
with nail-pierced hands, telling me
that His love is real; I felt and knew
in my heart that it was true.


I found my home and got my hope
from Jesus Christ.
I am staying, and I won’t go,
for I have experienced
the love that I’d been searching for.
He is enough,
and in Him, I stand, with His strength, strong.

You know what? It was Jesus Christ who could fix me after all. I tried my best to do everything— complicate my life or simplify the way I see things— but it turns out that all I needed was to throw in the towel and just… let Him. Let Him show me the world the way He sees it. Let Him free me from my reality so I can join Him in His.

God can turn anything into a testimony. Yes, beloved, anything.

Pam Carbungco, do not be so down

Flooded with Light

I used to live in the dark, caged by self-pity, insecurity, addiction, and sin, but Grace came into my life. Jesus Christ, in His love for me, unabashedly shone forth His glory in my life and flooded my world with His Light. He exposed everything to me as they were, and I am forever grateful.

It makes so much sense to me now why Jesus Christ said that He was the Light of the World. In my heart, right now, He was more than that. He was the Light of me, the Light of my life. I was lost and confused, but there came a time I asked Him for help, and I started receiving His love and grace. I felt like the sun had risen in my life and I started seeing things differently.

I saw self-pity differently. I realized that it was mere deception to make me look at myself through the lens of the world and the Enemy who would never care for my good, instead of the lens of the Cross. I saw my future differently. It was bright and beautiful because of Jesus Christ, regardless of my past and my sins. I saw myself differently. I was not my body or my mistakes or my status; I was a daughter of the King of kings. I was righteous, loved, precious, valued, forgiven, set apart, and blessed. I was as my Father in heaven says so.

These things are just a few of the things whose meanings have changed under the light of my Savior. It is wonderful to just wake up every morning and know that He is with you everyday to provide His light to your eyes as you encounter many things that used to confuse you. It is amazing to be walking in the Light as well as in the Truth, because the One who is both those things walks with you for every day of eternity.
