One Life To Live.

Remember that show? I remember seeing it for a while. But, I'm not huge on television viewing.

One life to live. That's all we have. We have received this one time gift and we are in complete control on how we use it.

The recent death of a loved one has made me ponder a lot deeper on life and how its end is guaranteed. I was very hurt as I expressed in one of my latest posts, however I like to find purpose in all.

Everything and everyone on Earth is temporary. Let that sink in. I feel like we know this but don't feel it, until death comes and bites you in the ---. The point is, I think the purpose of this painful time for my loved ones and myself is to evaluate what is truly important in this life.

I ask myself, what do I devote most of my time doing? How am I treating others? How can I give more of myself? Are there things that God is calling me to do that I'm not doing? Is there a change in my lifestyle that should be made?

One life to live. I don't want to think that I'll leave this broken world without leaving any meaningful footsteps on it. Forget being mediocre. I want to fulfill my purpose and this loss has allowed me to grasp the reality of death. The reality that this will soon cease. And every second is precious.

You, reading... Is there something you have to say to someone? Is there someone you have to forgive? Is there someone you need to express your love to? Is there something you have to confess? Do you have an idea that might make a difference?

One life to live. Let that sink in.

Spiritual Droplets

Follow my new blog. Spiritual Droplets. Reflect on God today.

Good Bye Beauty

My heart has been torn.
The ache is great in pain.

She was beautiful.
Her smile was pleasant.

Today she no longer is.
And it hurts.

Two decades of life.
Sweet but extremely sour.

Ease my soul, God.
I trust she is shining with you now.

Rest in peace.
Goodbye beauty.
I'm looking forward to meeting you.
Hasta luego...


Lessons are to be learned.
Pray at all times.
Appreciate at all times.
Love at all times.
Forgive at all times.
Respond to God at all times.
Fulfill your purpose.
You don't know when it's over.


I love you, LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him. Psalms 18:1-2,30

The "P" Word


I am going through a process. Others may not realize that they too are going through a process. Process, process, process. This is a word that has been after me for a while. I have learned that instead of running away from the term, I would understand the importance of it.

Process. Think about it. Everything around you, in some way or another makes you who you are. The people, the situation, the circumstances, the perspectives, the lifestyles, the beliefs. Everything that happens, everyone you meet, everything you see, everything you hear is part of this "process."

You may not like the idea of being "processed." I think that now more than ever, we enjoy everything being instant. That's why we've made microwaves, email, texting, etc.  And I bet that if someone invented something that reads our minds, without havng to click any buttons, we'd buy it in a heart beat.

Unfortunately, even though we are privileged to have these instant gadgets, we are the same as earlier generations. We aren't born with defined personalities and perspectives. Each day, each minute, each second produces something new in us.

All lives are complex and are being processed. However, it is something more profound when you know that you are being processed by something or someone beyond our human understanding.

I have learned that God is behind my every move. I believe that he puts things in my path to teach me something new. And everything is for my very own good. Every step of this process is to help me have the heart and lifestyle that He desires for me.

Like the song, Blessings by Laura Story. It says, "Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops What if Your healing comes through tears, What if a thousand sleepless nights, Are what it takes to know You’re near, What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise.."

It may be raindrops, tears, sleepless nights that bring you closer to God and help you understand Him and what he desires for you. Sometimes it can be a friend, a relationship, a conversation, an attitude, a trip or a part of scripture.

The "P" word.

Process. It is no longer an idea that I am uncomfortable wth. Instead I welcome God to continue to process me and find His way to the center of my life. I ask Him to help me understand what I need to change or what I need to learn from everything that surrounds me. Remember that everything has a purpose, even the fact that you are still reading this blog post.

Is there something that you need to notice in your life? Is God processing you in this very moment? Be joyful in the process and remember that at the end of the road is victory.

   Job 11:7
"Can you search out the deep things of God?
Can you find out the limits of the Almighty?"

It's a process.
Let that sink in.
