God is… Relentless

Due to my stubbornness, I have been running from God for a very long time. Today, I learned that God has been running after me.

The feeling has been building since the beginning of the semester. It was the end of a very trying period, and my faith was shaky, to say the least. And so when I entered this semester thinking that it would be the same as last semester, I was very, very disappointed. Everything was harder, messier, crazier; my friends were more distant, my initiative was gone, and worst of all, I couldn’t hear Jesus. Of course, there were good days where I would see Him, and bad days where all I could see was myself. But today God brought everything together and pointed me down the path He has for me. And as much as I may try to run, I remember that that was exactly what I had asked for.  Continue reading

I want to be a writer.

I’ve always wanted to, in fact I’m sure there’s a post somewhere in the not-so-deep depths of my archives that talks about this (whether on this blog or on the other four blogs I started in my youth (“in my youth.” Now there’s a funny phrase for someone my age to say)). Last January I went on a retreat that changed my outlook on my life, and confirmed for me that writing is going to be part of how God moves through me in my life.

Cool. So now what?  Continue reading

I LOVE TO DANCE! And I hope that by the end of the Christmas break, I will have a video of me dancing this choreography by one of my favorite dancers, Chachi Gonzales.

Christmas in San Francisco…

“…there’s no place quite so dear. It’s the closest thing to Heaven! How I wish that you were here…” Sentimental, subtly appropriate, and unable to get out of my head as I flew into SFO. Home for the holidays. Finally.

I couldn’t stop smiling as I drove home. All these places that I knew were familiar seemed so new to me. I just realized that I never truly believed this day would come, when I would leave all my books and notes back at school and come home just to be someone’s child, someone’s sister, someone’s friend. Not someone’s student (albeit I’m trying to become someone’s employee… but that’s a different story). Still, with everything God has shown me over the past semester, I’ve made it a goal to not just sleep for the entire 2 weeks that I’m separated from my college campus. No, I want this to be a Christmas that defines me, one that I can look back to as the time when I truly began to find who I am in God. Continue reading

Anew… Again

I recently had an odd conversation with myself, one that revolved around why I was a Christian. It stems from my recent search for who I am, for who God is in my life, and all that kind of existentialist crap that I thought I’d never have to get myself into. Or rather, that I hoped I’d never have to get myself into. Yet it’s a hard question to avoid, especially as a sophomore in college not yet quite sure which direction her life is turning and yet ever so scared of missing a good turn. But that’s a tangent.

MIKA – Pick Up Off The Floor

Not exactly a quote… but still the day’s obsession. Now I have a new goal: To learn this song on the piano and perform it. It may happen, one day.
