>TSMSS: God of Balance

Out of the Dark has lines that I am fond of:

…and though I love you so temptation finds its way to me” reminds me of wild student days when I was ‘banished’ by my parents to a boarding college to make sure I don’t mix study with party. The school, beautifully nestled in the hills of Central Mindanao, strictly upholds extremely conservative religious views. Students were allowed to leave the campus one weekend a month and that’s where we have a taste of the outside world. This outside world that we nicknamed “civilization” is the nearby city where we do what we can’t do inside the school campus. The school did manage to instill in me a few christian values that I still believe in to this day.

teach me to trust in You with all of my heart, to lean not on my own understanding” I remember there’s encouragement to memorize the verse and always remember it especially when times are great. It probably meant, don’t go carrying a big head over the amount of knowledge, success and experience you have acquired.

You won’t give me what I can’t bear” Equilibrium shots into my mind when I listen to this line. So all those troubles were balanced with the capacity to survive them…? Well, it does makes sense since God is a God of balance. To Gary V, the Filipino singer who popularized this song, it could mean his diabetes mellitus. To me, it’s all the assurance I need to trudge on.
