He is the First and Last,
The Beginning and the End!
He is the keeper of Creation and the Creator of all!
He is the Architect of the universe and the Manager of all times.
He always was, He always is, and He always will be ...
unmoved, Unchanged, Undefeated, and never Undone! He was bruised and brought healing!
He was pierced and eased pain!
He was persecuted and brought freedom!
He was dead and brought life!
He is risen and brings power!
He reigns and brings Peace!
The world can't understand him,
The armies can't defeat Him,
The schools can't explain Him, and The leaders can't ignore Him.
Herod couldn't kill Him, The Pharisees couldn't confuse Him, and The people couldn't hold Him!
Nero couldn't crush Him, Hitler couldn't silence Him,
The New Age can't replace Him, and "Oprah" can't explain Him away!
He is light, love, longevity, and Lord.
He is goodness, Kindness, Gentleness, and God.
He is Holy, Righteous, mighty, powerful, and pure.
His ways are right,
His word is eternal,
His will is unchanging, and His mind is on me.
He is my Savior,
He is my guide, and He is my peace!
He is my Joy,
He is my comfort,
He is my Lord, and He rules my life!
I serve Him because His bond is love,
His burden is light, and His goal for me is abundant life.
I follow Him because He is the wisdom of the wise,
The power of the powerful,
The ancient of days, the ruler of rulers, the leader of leaders,
The overseer of the overcomers, and is to come.
And if that seems impressive to you, try this for sure.
His goal is a relationship with ME!
He will never leave me,
never forsake me,
never mislead me,
never forget me,
never overlook me and
never cancel my appointment in His appointment book!
When I fall, He lifts me up!
When I fail, He forgives!
When I am weak, He is strong!
When I am lost, He is the way!
When I am afraid, He is my courage!
When I stumble, He steadies me!
When I am hurt, He heals me!
When I am broken, He mends me!
When I am blind, He leads me!
When I am hungry, He feeds me!
When I face trials, He is with me!
When I face persecution, He shields me!
When I face problems, He comforts me!
When I face loss, He provides for me!
When I face Death, He carries me Home!
He is everything for everybody everywhere, every time, and every way.
He is God, He is faithful. I am His, and He is mine!
My Father in heaven can whip the father of this world.
So, if you're wondering why I feel so secure, understand this...
He said it and that settles it.
God is in control, I am on His side,
and that means all is well with my soul.
Everyday is a blessing for GOD Is!

Somewhere between the *procrastination*
and the homework..
and the incessant forwards
and the friendships
and the calls to each other complaining about CrUsHeS
Somewhere between the phone calls to old friends
and the "I miss you's", the "I love you's" and
the "What are we doing tonight's?"
And somewhere between all of the changing and growing...
somewhere between the classes and the skipping classes
...and the StUdYiNg for teStS
...And the PRETENDING to "StUdY" or "WORK"
Somewhere between all the appointments,
starbucks coffee, and Mc Donald's...
paying bills and then not paying bills...
Making plans then breaking plans...
Appearing, Disappearing, then reappearing...
I forgot--I forgot what it was like to cry.
I forgot that pretending to be happy doesn't make you happy...
And that pretending to be SmArT doesn't make you smart ..
I forgot that you can't just forget the past
in fear of the FUTURE...
I forgot that you can't control falling in LoVe..
And that you can't make yourself fall in *LoVe*
.... I learned that I can LOVE...
I learned that it's okay to MEsS UP....
And it's okay to ask for HELP..
And it's okay to feel like crap...
I learned it's okay to cOmPLaiN
and wHINe to all your friends for a whole day........
I learned that sometimes the things you want most, you just can't have
and the things that you look for are right in front of you.
I learned that the greatest thing
about HiGh ScHOoL and CoLLeGe and the working world
it isn't about the parties or the DRiNKiNG or the Hookups ...
It's the *FrIeNdShIpS*, which means taking chances.
I learned that sometimes the things we want to forget
are the things which we most need to talk about...
I learned that TIME and LOVE can heal all things...
I learned that just when you think it can't get worse - it does! ...
but with the love and support of friends - you survive...
I've learned that when you start feeling BaD
about L O S I N G touch and about those that you've lost!
They too, are feeling the same way....
I learned that letters from friends
are the most important things.
And that sending cards to your friends makes you feel better!
But, basically, I just learned that my friends........
Both old and new.....
are the most important people to me in the world AND.......
without them, I wouldn't be who I am today.....
So this is a THANK YOU
to all of my friends... For always being there.
And even if we're not on good terms or we have lost touch...
I will always have an unconditional love for you..
To Richard, Jacob, Denise, Melissa, Chinnie, Dave, Madzy, Jenny, Sunshine, Apples, Precious, Rita, Shing, Grace, Hope, Faith, Jonathan, Kuya Joel, Kuya Jhun, Manong Andrew & Manang Lizette Ramos, Jonah, Rizza, Juliet, Neo, Dhang, Heather, Fritzie, Sascha & Cristina Hunner, Mario, Joseph, Kevin, Zandro, and many others that I failed to mentioned... Thank you so much.....
