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 …

He Renews Us Everyday

Bible Devotion: I Rest My Case Before God

In  times of desperation, when the devil (the enemy) implore ways to weaken my spirit and shatter my defenses, I used to surrender and be doomed to think that the impossible will and can never happen. In times like this, I allow myself to be limited by my humanity, making myself the Enemy's prey. But …

Nothing is Impossible

Almost three days ago, I had a bad case of infectious diarrhea. But funny how, I call it "bad case" and the adjective has nothing to do with the illness per se. Modesty aside, I am not the type that is threatened easily by diseases. Perhaps, this is because I am a nurse by profession; …

Things Happen For a Reason, They Say…

It was not until four years after I graduated from nursing school and passed the Philippine Licensure Exam that I took up law. I have always wanted to do it since I was little. So, imagine the heartbreak I got when my mom and dad, including most of my aunts and uncles, insisted that I …
