The Faithful’s Cause

What does faith have to offer?
Why have faith when all is pointing to doubt?
What’s the use of looking for the unseen
When the evidence of it is not out?

How does one prove the existence
Of something that senses can’t reach?
How can you explain to the people
The assurance of what you preach?

For it seems that faith has become a foolish attribute
The world see it as a childish reason
When you tell them that faith can make things possible
They seem to have mocking opinions

Now if you ask a faithful what faith can do
The faithful will smile and say, it changes you
And when change begins from your deepest soul
Your faith can make all things possible

When you rest your heart that Someone’s greater
Your fear subsides and soon you are able
To take the risk that the world considers impossible
But since you have that Someone, then you become courageous

Was it not through faith that France succeeded?
If a young farm girl ignored what God commanded
Would the French army have the guts to fight though they’re losing?
But impossible to that era, it was a girl that changed history

Was it not through faith that a young dreamer saved Egypt?
He faced the Pharaoh and relied to his God
He interpreted a dream to warn about a famine
It was through him that Egypt didn’t suffer a lot

Was it not through faith that people are capable of sacrifice?
Was it not through faith that people could be selfless?
Was it not through faith that a young Nazarene should die
Just to show the world that God’s love is boundless?

But indeed it is, but only the faithful ones could know
For the foolishness of their faith the world can’t imagine
They seek out for these promised miracles
When the miracle starts when faith is planted

Like a mustard seed, Jesus said
Let your faith grow as large as its tree
Don’t let the thorns choke you
But be the living proof that God is mighty

There are those who can make the world easy
But there are only few who can make it beautiful
And let me tell you what faith can offer
It fills the world with love because you are faithful

To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see.
– Hebrews 11:1

Not the First, but Hopefully the Last

The man I married was not the first person I loved, but I hope he is the last. My previous relationships have taught me a lot of things and 21 years after, I decided to tie the knot and use all the lessons I’ve learned to love the man I’ve promised my whole life with.

This blog is the same. I have created so many blogs ever since I owned a computer. I lost count of them and some, I don’t even have access to. The first time I posted my stories, only my friends visited but only out of curiosity and never to return. The next time was for bragging purposes. I cleaned my grammar and only re-posted refined gems. Again, no one visited. When I joined the workforce, I realized that there is magic behind the words and the websites they are posted to. They were governed by the powerful Search Engine Optimization or for short, SEO. When I applied as a writer to a journalism website, I have learned the basics of its spells. I can now cast them in this blog and use its power to summon readers.

I’ve loved, lost but I learned. I’ve written, been unnoticed but I learned. I’m hoping that my legacy will finally start here and the lessons will keep coming so I’ll keep learning to be better.
