Dorm number 14 - short stories 2020

See, Write, and Post-it. Our eyes see and record every memory that goes on in life.
It's raining outside, drizzling, and cold. I looked at my phone, it's 5.45 O'clock in the evening. It was a gloomy Saturday, I was at home, alone again. Thinking of my little sister but she was with my dad. And I am stuck with my mom.  It's been a month, I'm living with my mother. Only the two of us. I missed my dad, and my little sister, she was 10 years old. But, they both live in the cities. We had a family issue, my father and mother got divorced, not long ago. I haven't seen my dad and sister for a year. This grown-up thing messed up my childhood.   
I still contact my dad, video call with him, and my little sister. I am 8 years older than her. But, we both really close to each other. I am now 18 years old, finally, I can make my own decision, and I hope I got an opportunity to go to the cities. Being away from home. I love my mom, but I don't like her boyfriend. She seem…

Take Our hearts

Dear Lord Jesus,
Forgive us that You have to come knocking at the door of our hearts, pleading for our love. How often we have turned You away, leaving You outside in the cold. We confess with shame that we are often unready to receive You, preferring people and things, not appreciating the treasure we have in You.

Yet You have laid down Your life for us, You love us more than words can tell. Show us what fills and stirs our hearts more than You do, keeping us from loving You first and foremost. Whatever it is, we want to bring it to You, firmly believing You will set us free for Yourself.

You long for us to love You as Your bride. You long to dwell in hearts that have thrown out their idols, making room for You. You rejoice when we dedicate ourselves to You in this way, for then Your love can reign in us. So may we not be a source of disappointment to You any longer, but rather comfort and joy.

Take our hearts, our wishes, and desires. Take all our time. We place everything in Your hands. All we want is to respond to Your love.
