Stand Your Ground When in the Right

As I stumbled upon today's verse in my Bible app, I knew right away that I had to share it ASAP: Throughout the years, I have observed that a great number of people chose to either turn a blind eye towards wrongful acts around them, or join those who do bad and unrighteous acts thinking …

Thy Will Be Done

When I was in high school, my plan was solid - I'd get Political Science as my pre-law, go to law school after, and become a lawyer at 24. Fast forward to 2019, I am now a registered nurse working as a defense analyst/writer, and a struggling 5th year law student. Hey, I know that …

Love Your Enemies, Stop Wishing Them Dead

Before, I used to "kill" my enemies in my dreams and thoughts. As if it'll make any difference, I did it every single day until the anger faded. After all, since no one gets jailed doing this, why not sleep and repeat? I know what you're thinking. I don't have a criminal mind either. When …

Bible Devotion: Pray Always With Faith

Time flies so fast that I didn't realize that almost three months had already passed since the culmination of my recent law school semester. To date, it is the most difficult semester I have ever had. It was so difficult that it tested every aspect of my life, particularly my faith in the Almighty. I …

Bible Devotion: Celebrating 4th of July and My Birthday With Psalms 20:4

I am past that stage in my life when all I would ever care about for my birthdays are celebrations and gifts. Yes, it could and will always be fun to be showered by gifts and be remembered by people. However, it wasn't as of a big deal now as it was before. Throughout the …

Bible Devotion: My Recitation Does Not End in Law School

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. (Joshua 1:8 KJV) If there's one thing …

Bible Devotion: Love May Be Someone, But It Will Always Be God

"Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful" I find 1 Corinthians 13:4‭-‬5 too overboard and mushy until I met Jumel. Blame the [my favorite] movie, "A Walk to Remember" for romanticizing …

Bible Devotion: You Harvest What You Plant

This bible verse reminds me so much of Karma. Indeed, when you plant hate, you get the same. When you plant trickery, selfishness, and injustice, prepare to reap them, perhaps, even sevenfold. I have no plans of planting anything else than love, faith, and goodness. It may be hard, I know, but I'm sure that …
