Why Spilled Ink

At first, I wasn’t too sure why I named my blog “Spilled Ink”. I really love to write. I love pens. I am currently into calligraphy and lettering. In other words, I adore ink.

However, I realized that I wanted this blog to be more than just a venue to publish random thoughts, ideas, and feelings. “Spilled Ink” will talk about me being a mere vessel of God’s overflowing love and grace. Just like a pen nib without ink, I have no purpose without my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. But, why spilled?

Every month, I will publish an entry or two. It can be anything about the following topics:

  1. Reflections of God’s Word
  2. Teaching (CA, FEBIAS, private lessons)
  3. Studies (UP)
  4. Church ministry (Worship, Youth)
  5. Lettering
  6. Original Works (Songs, Poems, Short stories, Videos, etc.)
  7. Traveling and (Mis)adventures
  8. Griefs, Rants, and Disappointments
  9. Other things worth blogging about

With these topics, my goal is to let God spill all over this blog. Whether I’m rejoicing or grieving, I would say that God is good all the time. This is my way of guarding my mind, my heart, and my speech. I would like to hold myself accountable. Having said that, if you are reading this post, it would be my pleasure if you hold me accountable of my future entries. Don’t hesitate to call out my attention if I’m drifting away from my goal. Of course, I would also appreciate if you let me know your own thoughts about my entries.

To end this introductory post, I would like to leave you with a verse that talks about the “Spilled Ink” that overflows from God, the Source of joy, hope, and peace.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 5:13 (ESV)
