WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS… | 01

My view in spirituality, religion and faith are so complicated as of the moment but I’m trying and I’ve been reading the Bible again, so every now and then I’m going to share some things I read in the Bible that speaks to me.

For the first Bible verse I’m going to share, it’s from Luke 12:22-23

“Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.”

There’ll be times when we’re going to be consumed by our worries about our lives and how we’re going to keep up with the society but the Bible says that there’s more to life than food, clothes, money etc. and that we should first seek for God’s kingdom and righteousness and all of these things will follow and for that we shouldn’t worry too much. 

Also, the Bible says in Matthew 6:27 

“Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” 

We shouldn’t waste time worrying because it doesn’t really help us in anyway, will it add up to the lifetime we have here? For all I know it will just shorten the time we have. 

So, I guess what I’m sharing to all of you today is to not worry too much and that’s coming from God. 😊

LATE NIGHT QUESTIONS | WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU KNEW YOU COULDN’T FAIL? 

Some of us are held back on doing things that we want to do because of our fear of failure but if for a day you knew that you couldn’t fail, what would you do?

Another question, another thing to ponder about. 

Maybe answering thing question may lead to knowing your passion. 

Do not be afraid to go after what you want. 😊

This is the first question in this series that I have an answer for… (but I’m going to keep it to myself). 😉

TOP 10 UNDERRATED TAYLOR SWIFT SONGS

Is listening to Taylor Swift a guilty pleasure? For some maybe but for me I’m not really guilty because you can’t deny that you know at least one Taylor Swift song and you sing to it at the top of your lungs inside your car. 

A few weeks ago Taylor Swift returned on Spotify and putting back all her albums on the streaming site which I was basically overjoyed because I use Spotify to listen to music because it saves so much space on my phone, now I feel like my playlist on Spotify is complete with her back on it. 

So right now I’m going to narrow down 10 underrated Taylor Swift songs even though all of her songs are so good, I’m going to pick only 10 songs that everyone should listen to and Taylor should have released as a single. 

 

 
1. Jump Then Fall – This song was included in the soundtrack of Valentine’s Day where Taylor starred in. 
 
2. Forever and Always – this version is when you’re mad after the break-up but I recommend you listening to the piano version unfortunately, it’s not on Youtube but here’s a Spotify link. The piano version is more like the stage of grieving in a break-up. You can feel the emotion, the pain of the break-up in this song especially when it comes to the bridge of the song where she sings “back up baby back up”, a perfect song when you feel like being melodramatic about a break-up. I like it when she sings acoustic because it brings out the beauty of her voice even more.

3. Never Grow Up – a very nostalgic song, makes you reminisce about your childhood days and wishing you could go back and just never grow up.

4. Enchanted – every time I hear this song it makes me feel like I’m in a fairytale, such great lyrics. It captures that feeling of a perfect first date, that stage in a relationship where you just can’t wait to meet that person again. I also love the lyric in the bridge “please, don’t be in love with someone else. Please, don’t have somebody waiting on you.” 

5. Last Kiss – another melodramatic break-up song but this is for like you want to be in bed all day and dwell on the break up.

6. Treacherous – it’s all about taking risks in love just like the song says “nothing safe is worth the drive”.

7. Stay Stay Stay – this is such a fun song to listen to it’s Christmassy even though it’s not a Christmas song, I just feel a Christmas vibe with the melody lol. The song is really about talking things through and staying in the relationship despite of all the arguments you face.

8. Clean – this is the song that Taylor wrote with Imogen Heap, I just find this song eccentric in terms of the sound you can really hear Imogen Heap in it. The lyrical content is also very relatable especially when you’re in the process of healing from something. 

9. How You Get The Girl – another enjoyable music to listen to, just like 22 (that rhymed!)

10. You Are In Love – perfect way to describe love and being in love. 


May I also add All Too Well, probably one of my most favorite Taylor Swift song, I already added it to another playlist before so I didn’t include it in here. Well, that’s my top 10 underrated Taylor Swift songs, comment your favorite Taylor Swift song/s 😊.

 

P. S. Songs from 1989 album are not included in the Youtube playlist, couldn’t find a nice quality vid. Stream the whole Taylor Swift catalog on Spotify though if you like 😊.

I SURRENDER

​Walking blind around these streets without guidance of a stick. I bump walls and sometimes falls. I ask why and often cry. I lose faith and sometimes hate the way my life is. Why don’t you just take this? 

Oh Father, I haven’t been a good daughter, out of doing good or taking the easy way, I chose the latter. Oh I’m a sinner, yes I know. I’m in drought need of water to refresh my soul, I was ready to fall until I heard your call. Is there any chance for me to be forgiven? Even when I’m on the edge of blasphemy? Yes, I know I’m not worthy but here I am surrendering myself, take everything I have left. 

MY CHOICES

 
​There are so many voices
 
influencing my choices

and my mind is a mess

I think I want the best

but I’m becoming less

of who I really am.

I think my life is in vain,

maybe I’m not supposed to play this game.

It’s becoming lame. 

Do you feel the same?

Like you’re not where you’re supposed to be,

these are not what you’re supposed to see,

we’re supposed to be free but where are we?

Me? I’m still here, living in fears.

Okay I need to breathe, I need a beer.

I have this mind I need to clear.

I fall into temptations,

think I have no other options,

now I ask for my salvation.

I point and aim,

though I’m the one to blame.

I made the flame,

now it’s on fire,

it’s not what I desire,

now I’m in dire 

need of help—

I need to save myself.

The choices I’ve made

led to this fate,

I run towards my faith,

am I already too late?
