FASHION POST: TRUST

IMG_4736 IMG_4727 IMG_4732 IMG_4725 IMG_4731 IMG_4726 IMG_4742

This word is one of the most common, intangible, and fragile when we speak of relationships in which I am not only referring to being partners but to family, friends, siblings, loved ones, and even to strangers. So I share this post as an open letter for my 23 yr. old self and a prayer with my personal Savior, Jesus Christ ❤

This song, it hit right in the feels.

TRUST

Hillsong Young & Free – Youth Revival 

When it doesn’t go my way
I know that it is not the end
I’m trusting you have better plans
I haven’t even dreamt of yet

I know that You are for me
When everything’s against me
I put all my hope in You

Jesus I will trust You
I will trust you
I know you never fail
I will trust you
Jesus I will
Jesus I will

I don’t know how the story ends
But I know that You finished it
I’ll close my eyes and just let go
And fall into my only Hope

There’s safety in the falling
When I surrender fully
I put all my hope in You

The only thing I know
Is God you’re in control
In every little detail
You are close
I’ll never be alone
Here in the unknown
The power of Your Presence
Fills my soul

Now everything I know
Is God you’re in control
In every little detail
You are close
I’ll never be alone
Here in the unknown
The power of Your Presence
Fills my soul

Listen to the track here.

We can only trust if we have faith and believe. I hope we all find the courage to pursue trust even thought the things ahead are vague.

Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

Galatians 6:9 – And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Thank you Jesus, I trust in you.

Enough said.

Fashion Post x Life Diaries: Wearing A Neon Blazer

 

Hiiiiii ❤

It’s a beautiful Wednesday morning so I’m gonna start writing this blog post while listening  to some songs. It’s my free day today and I choose to be productive first thing in the morning 🙂 So as you can see what I’m wearing here is really a bright one that when I first saw this hanging in the store, I was having second thoughts on purchasing it or not. So I didn’t… But days passed and I find myself in the store again. I tried to fit this piece and it was like tailor-made for me. I was having doubts because of the color actually, but it’s a piece I couldn’t resist. (I should start investing on more formal pieces now, since that’s where I’m headed to.) So I went out of the store satisfied, with a smile on my face 🙂

To connect it with my life… (Yes, I’m the type of person who does not really open up about my personal matters since I’m more of a private person) I want to talk about decisions, because right now I’m in a stage of my life where decisions are crucial and must be considered. Well, to be honest I just want to savor every moment of it, and appreciate the things I have and the people around me that love me. I know that God has greater plans for me than I have for myself so I should just obey Him, wait and trust in His promises. I’m saying this because I don’t want to over think of how things should be. All my life I’ve been really eager to know on what I’d become.. which is a good thing… but I can’t do that forever. I just wanna pause and smell the flowers for a while.  So let’s live for today because it’s a present, hope for good things and dream for tomorrow ❤

That’s all for now, I hope I encouraged you somehow 🙂

Xoxo,

Shannen ❤

Hey everyone!

Here is another “senti” post that i’ll be sharing with you today. Well,  lately I’ve been… I’ve been losing sleep dreaming about the things… Just kidding! It’s not that. In fact I slept for 12 hrs straight last night. HA! It’s just some realization that I have been thinking about over and over again these past few days. It’s  MOVING ON ONE STEP CLOSER AT A TIME. You only have one body, one soul, and one mind and you can’t do everything at once. We have to allow ourselves to breathe sometimes, PAUSE… so that we don’t rush into things that we’re supposed to do. Yes, this life can only get busier as it can get. But if we don’t stop, then we could miss a lot of things also. You know the saying, You’ll miss the moon while counting the stars? and a verse in the Bible that says… There’s a time for everything?  These are the only ones I could think of right now. But I couldn’t agree more.

I probably am saying these things to myself right now. HAHAHA.  Because I want to do so much in life that I don’t know if everything I plan for myself is what the Lord’s will for me also. I believe that I must seek Him harder. Yes, that’s the key to unlocking the things he has planned very well for you.

Til’ my next post.

Fashion Post: Stripes & Shorts

DSC_1753 DSC_1797 bw DSC_1791 DSC_1802 DSC_1774 Untitled_Panorama1Hello! from the gloomy skies of Bacolod! This is Supershannen bringing you another outfit post for the day 🙂 Oh diba.  Just like a reporter. LOL.  But seriously it’s been raining like crazy here in my city for two days already. So, rather than just lazily lying around. I should just start being productive and write a post. 🙂

Here is another black & white outfit that I wore on a private resort, when I went out of town with my fam a few Sundays ago. We ate our lunch there and just had a great time relaxing and chatting. This post is also a bit special because I have my two ”firsts” here. One is, this is my first outfit shoot out of town. Then, this is also the first time I wore shorts on the blog. I wore them because we went swimming just right after these pictures were taken. I had to be practical. Lol. I also wore just a few accessories here. I just don’t wear much now unlike before where everything would pile up. Well you know what they say, the only constant thing in this world is change 🙂

So what do you think?

Let me know, just leave a comment below 🙂

Anyway, Holy Week/vacation starts soon! Where do you plan to go?

Xoxo,

Fashion Post x Life Diaries: Yellow Sun Rays

DSC_1125 DSC_1134 DSC_1121 DSC_1152 DSC_1094 DSC_1127 DSC_1115 DSC_1140 DSC_1148Hey everyone!

I just wanna share with you something that I learned these past few days while giving myself a break and just indulging in a deep relaxation. It is about TRUSTING GOD. Simple right? Yes it may be,  but it is very powerful. Trusting God for me means to be able to acknowledge and surrender everything that we do to Him, either big or small, in every aspect of our life. And letting Him take control over our lives. It must be more of Him and less of ”me”. Yes, Jesus has given us freedom but that doesn’t mean that we compromise righteousness just to be able to follow the standards of this world. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Also, I want to be able to share this topic because I will be graduating from college this May and what I will do after is still vague. This is the part of my life where trusting God is applied. But trusting Him is not enough, we must also master the art of hearing from him, asking what His will is and the assignment he has called us to do that we may be able to glorify Him. This is very crucial for me because I want to depend on God completely. Not in my diploma, in the job, or what this world could offer. It’s not that I take these things for granted… but  what I’m trying to say is… God is more than all these things. I want to be able to trust Him completely that I don’t depend on what I know anymore. What I’ve shared is also related to my title, Yellow Sun Rays. Storms may come and rain hard on our lives but like the sun, God is always up there, he never leaves. So to every single person out there who feels the same, His rays will always shine on you to remind you that His promises are true. (Psalm 31:16)

AHHHH! God is just so amazing! I just can’t explain how beautiful it is to be in love with Jesus! ♥♥♥  til my next post!
