“Cast all your anxiety on him,because he cares for you.”-1Peter 5:7
Sometimes, giving up or letting go seems harder because of all the possibilities you know might happen if you lose grip of the wheel…
Possibilities of negative outcome from just leaving the heavy baggage on the floor can plague us.
Sometimes we want to come back and pick up the weight — because, come to think of it, we think carrying things seems to be more “proper” and “comfortable” for us rather than letting our Father God handle that weight for us.

The Pursuit for Reality
So many voices in my head, telling me what to do.
So many choices I need to make, things I’ve done, I can’t undo.
So many lies amidst the truth, producing guilt..confusion..in me.
That’s why I need to take a stand. Take a step in this pursuit for reality.
Amazing! I couldn’t believe that Anthony Baker (author of the blog, The Recovering Legalist) would feature me in one of his posts, and on top of that, his daughter Katie just made one of my poems entitled “Bleeding Heart” into a song! I mean – these are really life’s little big blessings that make me smile and get really thankful about all these things…things that might not seem significant for others, but to me, this is really something big.
You can listen to the song here: Bleeding Heart – by Katie Baker
You can find our conversation about making my poem here on the poem’s comments section: “Take my heart…and save it.”
This song shows a lot about what I’ve been feeling recently and I’ve been desperately crying out to God because I know of the darkness that’s still somehow making its way inside of me. But I am assured that Christ’s light is brighter and in time, I know He’ll be able to restore this bleeding heart that the world has somehow tainted.
Bleeding Heart also means that somehow…portraying false righteousness and not admitting our failures is damaging and wrong. I think we all need a bleeding heart to be made new again. We need to realize are filth before we can be cleansed.
I went around the neighborhood yesterday to take pictures, and I’ve taken these. I love how the skies turned out – faded in color and yet you can see the lighter hues…it’s just amazing.
Not many people around our place appreciate the beauty of the skies, really…we’re just too caught up with pulling our own weight and putting much effort on our actions.
