All-time 8 Favorite Reads

One of the hardest questions to ask a book-lover is, "what's your all-time favorite book?"

To which, I am sure would ensue a long and hard look at the ceiling as she ponders the answer to that question... And after much thought, would probably still fail to come up with just ONE.

So I would not even attempt to do that. :P

What I'll give you, though, are 8 books that really stuck to me through the years.

Much like the movie, Train to Busan (if you haven't seen it yet, please do! It's a rocking movie about humanity and relationships... and yes, scary and fast-moving zombies that really bothered me on their speed, why are they so fast??!).

These books sent my imagination off to places I never thought possible, whirled me to varying emotions -- including but not limited to -- soaking my pillow wet from tears, laughing out loud from witty dialogues, nostalgic turns that brought me back to memory lane and those poignant moments of just being deeply moved by the stories and characters.

Finding your Rhythm

It's already August! Time really flies!

We're more than halfway through 2016 and our days have been packed for the past month in the ministry. There were several times when I had to push back or altogether cancel my plans with friends because something always seems to come up. This is what happens when adult-ing run in with childhood. Haha! I'd like to stress though that it's fine to be a kid from time to fine and we should never lose that balance between work and fun.

Balancing work and fun can be another term for setting a rhythm in our lives.

At church, we were taught that there's a certain rhythm to the things that we do. Rhythm is like a pattern, a trend in the things that we choose to do in a period of time. But in order for a rhythm to work for us, it has to be purposeful and it has to be clear to us and to the team that we are part of.

Playlist Faves: You Make me Brave

You Make me Brave
by Amanda Cook & Bethel Music

I stand before You now
The greatness of Your renown
I've heard of the majesty and wonder of You
King of Heaven, in humility, I bow

As Your love, in wave after wave
Crashes over me, crashes over me
For You are for us, You are not against us
Champion of Heaven, 
You made a way for all to enter in

I've heard You calling my name
I've heard the song of love that You sing
So I will let you draw me out beyond the shore 
Into Your grace

You make me brave
You make me brave
You call me out beyond the shore into the waves

You make me brave
You make me brave
No fear can hinder now the Love that made a way

You make me brave
You make me brave
You call me out beyond the shore into the waves

You make me brave
You make me brave
No fear can hinder now the promises You've made

I was praying for supernatural strength on the way to 360 Fitness Club this afternoon. Yup, you read that right. CIRCUIT TRAINING. After more than a year of not getting a regular exercise, circuit pa talaga ang napili ko! lol! Lakas ng loob, men! And just right after fasting too!
