Comic: Mr. Noah Tall

Comic: Meet Mr. Noah Tall by me, tacticianjenro

(YAY for my first comic strip! *clap clap clap*)

Meet Mr. Noah Tall. He knows a lot of things. Like, what the answers are, or what the facts are. What are the foundations, the things we need to hear are. Yeah, he seems to “know it all”.

Sure, that’s great! Knowledge and understanding is a great thing. Discipline and obedience is a great thing. So is teaching, directing people..all those stuff.

But what about love? A love that comes from the heart?

“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.” -1 Corinthians 13:1-2

Failure to Accept

The parable of the prodigal son is one of my favorite stories in the Bible. It shows so much of God’s compassion, mercy, and grace towards us; most especially in spite of our failures/mistakes.

It’s sad how people (me included) can act the opposite sometimes.

When a friend betrays us, or does us no good, there’s already a gap formed. A bond lost. It just isn’t the same because of the wrong actions.

When a son/daughter makes the wrong choices, keeps rebelling, we welcome them with words of anger and correction. Disdain and contempt. We leave them to correct their mistakes, and if they do, that’s only when we’ll make them feel loved again.

HOPE and PEACE In An Uncertain World

Danny Dutton, an 8-year-old boy from in Chula Vista , CA . was asked to do a homework assignment.  It was a writing assignment; the topic  “EXPLAIN GOD”


EXPLANATION OF GOD:  One of God’s main jobs is making people.  He makes them to replace the ones that die, so there will be enough people to take care of things on earth.  He doesn’t make grownups, just babies.  I think because they are smaller and easier to make.  That way he doesn’t have to take up his valuable time teaching them to talk and walk.  He can just leave that to mothers and fathers.

God’s second most important job is listening to prayers.  An awful lot of this goes on, since some people, like preachers and things, pray at times beside bedtime.  God doesn’t have time to listen to the radio or TV because of this.  Because he…

False Truths and Surreal Realities

I so hate failure.

I so hate consequences.

I so hate regrets.

Come on. Everyone says to live in EXCELLENCE. Make every move, every action, the best that we can. But why am I like this? I don’t really see that as the big point.

Let me tell you this. I seem to hate myself whenever I fail to meet people’s expectations. Even if I really don’t live by that. It’s just the thing of how they see me whenever I do fail that I can’t live with.

And…I don’t want excellence.
I don’t want responsibility.
I feel like it’s just so much weight that I have to let go and let God.

But, is it wrong?

I want.. God to excel for me.
I want.. God to be responsible for me.
Is that too much? Is that an immature thing to ask?
Because I feel like it’s just my way of ESCAPING, feigning reality.

Because if I open my eyes, I can foresee the consequences – mainly due to my actions, or rather, my LACK of action..

And if I open my ears, I hear so much false truths, and so much agendas focusing on EFFORT, EXCELLENCE, striving, and, as I can see, priorities that focus on self, and even love, it is indulgent…

Somehow, I want to run away. Run and dive into the surreal world where I can truly say and believe that “Everything will be okay”.

But that’s what faith is about…believing the unseen.

I guess my concern is just, the way the world works. I don’t want to fit in.

What could be the way? Is this the way? Is this okay?

As I open my eyes, I can see the consequences I may reap, due to what I sow…

Help Me Smile

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” -3 John 1:2 (KJV)

Jesus, help me smile.
Jesus help me know that your love for me is vast and powerful.
Take away my fears, my anxieties, my emotions of melancholy.
Fill me with joy, and peace. Help me see the light of what you have done, and how you see me and love me fully.

I don’t have to be afraid because you are here.
I don’t have to be anxious about what others say, because you alone matter.
I don’t have to be in sorrow because you offer so much joy.
I don’t have to wallow in guilt because you don’t see what I’ve done anymore.

Jesus, help me smile.
Help me laugh.
Help me grin.
Help me see the bright side of things.

Help my soul prosper.

The Future is…

“For I know the plans I have for you, plans for wholeness and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

This is one of the famous verses from the Bible: Jeremiah 29 verse 11. Well, I take Him for His Word that this is what He really is – He thinks good towards us and wants to give us a bright future, to fill us with hope.

Yesterday, I was listening to some of my classmates’ conversations. They were talking about their dreams – what they were dreaming of becoming in the future, and how life’s circumstances somehow make that seem impossible.
