You Deserve More Than Secondhand Love

It’s just that, more than anything, I want to tell you that rather than waiting on every word that comes from the mouth of a blogger, you can choose to wait and meditate on every word that comes from the mouth of God. Nothing could substitute that – no matter how seemingly well-written or timely. Every other source should be secondary.

Rage, Rage

Have you ever had that time when you felt that your heart has been stagnant almost inactive? I know I have. It is unlike those days that I feel on fire for the Word, on fire to inspire and to encourage. It feels like just passing by. Like I’m living on the bare minimum, just passing through the moment.

And somehow, these words resounded to me:

“Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

These words are from a poem by Dylan Thomas. Analysts say it’s a poem about fighting death—the physical kind, about not allowing yourself to passively wait for “that good night”, about fighting for life as much as you can.

One Identity

Earlier this year I created this blog as a separate place where I can write about things I do in my life. I thought I should separate it from the blog where I wrote about my faith. I reasoned that I wanted my previous blog to just be about faith.

This week I read one of Arianne Serafico’s posts (actually she has a free online course on this topic) where she talked about previously having a separate Instagram account for her business/creative pursuits and from her personal Instagram account. She talked about how she didn’t want to put it all in her personal account for fear of making it too sales-y or just weird and awkward. In a way, I realised that maybe I made separate blogs also because I didn’t want people who read my blog posts to see my posts about faith. I felt like I didn’t want people to think I was too “religious” or “church-y”.

But, it doesn’t feel right to have a split identity. I shouldn’t be creating a schism on what I do on a daily basis from the very thing that influences my motives and decisions: my faith. So now, I’m placing them all in one place. Here.

Previously, I owned the domain names unprecedentlife(dot)wordpress(dot)com and heiressofapromise(dot)wordpress(dot)com.

Now, welcome to unprecedentgrace.wordpress.com where I strive to reconcile both parts of my identity into one. Cheers to being whole!

Prompt #18: In the past month, what have you learned?

April was a month of thinking. In my fast-paced life in college, I had to be quick in making decisions. I had to be vigilant in every move I make. When we trained for student council elections, we had to learn answering questions for just the amount of time the question was being stated, which was thirty seconds or so. But, in this more tranquil season–thinking, deeply thinking, has become part of my everyday life.

Why is losing your virginity such a big deal?

This article that I saw on my FB feed caught my attention because a publication entitled “Young Star” released something on virginity. Eventually, this will propagate to many young people, and the majority of them would be influenced one way or another. You can read it first so you can understand my context.
