Should not have

Too late.
I shouldn't have.
Put people on a pedestal. 
I should have remembered
We are all the same.

I am human.
Weak and frail.
Natural to fall into sin.
The same as everyone.

I forgot.
So I get disappointed.
I become disillusioned.
Too late.

I should only look to God.
And be forgiving.
So that I too could be forgiven.
Again and again.

Remember the lesson.
Do not forget ever.
Humans err.
God is loving and forgiving.

A vote for our future

I casted my vote today. After six long years, I was once again asked to choose whom to trust. It was a difficult decision. Up until last night, I struggled between two candidates for the presidential position. They both seem worthy of my trust. They have performed well in the past.

The counting of the ballots started already. I have to admit that I am nervous. Among the top contenders for the presidential position, I only pray that two people would not win.

It seems so small... my one vote. But I know that together we would be putting someone who would lead us in the future.

The Lord's will be done.

Lion Chaser Manifesto

Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death. Set God-sized goals. Pursue God-ordained passions. Go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention. Keep asking questions. Keep making mistakes. Keep seeking God. Stop pointing out problems and become part of the solution. Stop repeating the past and start creating the future. Stop playing it safe and start taking risks. Expand your horizons. Accumulate experiences. Enjoy the journey. Find every excuse you can to celebrate everything you can. Live like today is the first day and last day of your life. Don't let what's wrong with you keep you from worshiping what's right with God. Burn sinful bridges. Blaze new trails. Criticize by creating. Worry less about what people think and more about what God thinks. Don't try to be who you're not. Be yourself. Laugh at yourself. Quit holding out. Quit holding back. Quit running away.

Chase the lion.
