In My Weakness…

March 31, 2019 Leave a comment

Dear Father,

I come to you today feeling so weak and helpless. There are many thing on my plate, so many worries, so many uncertainties, so many things that I just can’t do. Every time I think about what lies ahead for me, I feel overwhelmed. When I consider carrying this burden for days on end, I feel like I just might drown. Everything seems impossible.

You said to come to you with my burdens. The Bible says you are our “Rock” and our “Fortress.” You are all knowing and all powerful. You know the burdens that I bear. You are not surprised by them. In fact, you’ve allowed them into my life. I may not know the purpose for them, but I do know that I can trust your goodness. You are always faithful to do what is best for me. You care most about my holiness, even above my immediate happiness. I ask that you remove this burden from me, take away my weakness, but ultimately, I desire most of all that your will be done.

I confess that I hate this weakness in me. I don’t like not knowing what to do. I don’t like being incapable and insufficient. Forgive me for wanting to be sufficient in myself. Forgive me for wanting to be in control. Forgive me for complaining and grumbling. Forgive me for doubting your love for me. And forgive me for not being willing to trust and rely on you and your grace.

When I look into the future and see my weakness, help me to trust you. May I, like Paul, embrace my weakness so that you can be my strength. May you work through my weakness to change me. May I glorify you in my weakness, looking away from myself and to the wonders of your amazing love through Christ.

Grant me gospel joy, even in the midst of this struggle. It’s because of Jesus and through Jesus that I can pray, Amen.

movie review: Creed 2

November 24, 2018 Leave a comment

 

Fans from the first movie had a silly prediction that Creed would fight Ivan Drago’s son, and I thought… nah this franchise is too smart for that. And when that first trailer came out, boy was I wrong. But I had wanted to see it anyways. First initial impressions are positive. However, this is nowhere near as stellar as the first one. I was a little annoyed with Adonis due to this stubborn pride. The motivation was a bit weak in the end. Rocky on the other hand was more likable than ever. It’s nice we get a resolution with him near the end. There was potential for the Dragos to be a bit more fleshed out but it didn’t mount to anything other than typical villain reasoning, but at least it was better than Rocky IV. Music wasn’t as strong as the first one but the memorable tunes are still there, just not the preferred arrangements. Fights were nicely done though, and so is the training montage. Overall, it’s worth the watch.

Rating: 7.5/10

Fights to Remember

If you have not seen Fate Apocrypha, there will be spoilers obviously unless if you don’t care. Otherwise enjoy these amazing fight scenes. Certainly not the best Fate show but without a doubt the most entertaining one.

Spring Season Anime

April 16, 2018 Leave a comment

Here’s what I’m watching so far…

 

Gundam Build Divers

I know I’m not the target demographic for this show, but it’s Gundam and gunpla. It’s nice to see Gundam 00 mechs again and amusing cameo appearances of Patrick. It would be hilarious if he became the new Ral of the show. This is a great show for a new generation of kids to start getting into the franchise.

 

Hinamatsuri

This is my most highly anticipated of the season. Hinamatsuri was one of the funniest seinen manga I’ve read and it got me excited that the anime adaptation was announced. While some parts of the story was cut off from the manga based upon the first couple episodes, I’m still having a great time with the show.

 

Megalo Box

I’m no fan of sports anime, but when Megalo Box was described as boxing in a cyberpunk world, how can I ignore it? The premise is rather typical but the world building and music is great. The animation is retro style but the video quality is oddly low as if I was watching an upscaled 480p.

 

Persona 5 The Animation

I no longer have the time to play 40+ hour RPG games so hopefully this 24 ep adaptation will do the trick. But wow, the visual have quality written all over it. I’m not sure what to expect other than super stylish aesthetics which the Persona franchise is known for.

 

Steins;Gate 0

The first show took a while for me to get into, but the payoff was excellent. This semi sequel wastes no time getting into the thick of things thankfully. It’s gonna be quite interesting where this show goes. Of course, I’m expecting more time travel stuff.

 

Still watching…

DARLING in the FRANXX – My goodness. This show loves to take its sweet time. It took 4 episodes for the main dude to pilot the mech! But now the show has gotten much better, until the most recent ep. Now I so dislike Ichigo with a passion. How could this reject be so selfish and ruin relationships that was so close to being established?

Record of Grancrest War – This is one entertaining fantasy war anime despite of its flaws. Aside from Berserk, this comes close 2nd if Game of Thrones were to become an anime. It’s surprisingly quite violent. The show sometimes rushes things too much for its own good. I’ve heard this is related to the Record of Lodess War but no idea in what way.

What Happened?

March 25, 2018 Leave a comment

What up yall? I’m still here.

I know I’ve been less active more than ever here but updating stuff has been a much lesser priority to me these days. Most of the time, I tend to forget anyways. My time has been spent on mostly on reading books based on theology and apologetics. The one social site I’ve been most active on is twitter. Sometimes instagram but I rarely take worthwhile pics.

Anyways, this is just an update post showing I’ll be continuing this blog, just not in a the pace I would like to.
