The God I serve

When I was young and now am old, I am still longing to experience God’s presence. Yes, I believe He is there looking at me, following me through but listening to others’ experiences of God talking to them in their dreams helps me long for Him to talk to me as well, as what Samuel in the Bible experienced when he was still a young boy, he thought that Eli, the priest was calling him during the night. However, Eli taught him to say: “Yes, Lord, your servant is listening”. How I wish I could have the same experience.

Another author said, and I quote: Ask the Lord to unveil His purpose in your life, ask for His leading and guidance. Ask for help! And that is the desire of my heart while I’m becoming older. To be in His presence and experience His peace and hope in my hopeless situation. Gid is there and I believe He is working on my behalf!

The Serenity

There are many places I would love to visit but the serenity of Bulata Beach is something I would love to think about again and again. It is something I always treasure and remember. For me, the beach is peaceful and it gives me a peaceful mind with a peaceful heart.

Blessed Within

This new year brought challenges, hopes, victories and gladness in my life. I’m blessed within. The Lord gave me that confidence that no matter what circumstances life may bring, my anchor holds and grips the SOLID ROCK that is JESUS!

Though we may falter, we fall short at times because of our sinful nature but God who is faithful will carry us through and make our lives to become a blessing to others. That is our God! He can change our bad situation and sinful life to become a vessel of honor.

The challenge is: Whatever circumstances or trials we may be experiencing or facing at the moment, try to look up and ask for help. He is waiting and just a prayer away!

The Change

There were changes that happened during the COVID-19 pandemic. A change in the world we live in. A change in everything and a catastrophe to some. People won’t desire to have it. Some were amazed at how God saved them. Many were hard crushed and shaken. Few experienced loss and people panicked.

However, when there is a change in our behavior, in our circumstances, in the way we live and move, in the way we make things for ourselves, for others, and for the Lord, it is a change that we desired. A change within!

In like manner, when the super typhoon hit and struck many, bigger change had happened especially in the homes that were broken and lost. It was indeed an experience that many who passed through it, would not desire to remember again and again. But thanks be to God, these people who had the experience of the super typhoon on the hilltop praised God for protection and blessings!

Another Blessed Year

I’m blessed knowing that my God neither slumbers nor sleeps. He is the God of wonders! This new year, it’s a new beginning and new opportunities to work with Him and for Him. Another year to be a blessing to others and for the family. A year of helping others and bringing them to the Lord. A year of continued prayers and fasting and helping others in need.

What an opportunity to work with the Lord! Thank you Lord for blessing my family and my sons! A blessed assurance to be in Jesus!

Give and Be Blessed

After giving some gifts to our students yesterday to different towns and cities, we also bless those on the highway after seeing their houses being trampled down by typhoon Odette. Hearts were shaken seeing them receiving something to augment their needs.

Somehow, God is pleased seeing His children blessing others and taking time to be a part of extending help to those in need.

Helping Hand

After the super typhoon “Odette” many shared a helping hand. Helping someone in need is something that our God desires. You could really see people’s lives being helped and people’s lives changed. God is a God of wonder! He understands us and saves those who asked for help.

Tomorrow will be a great day for me and the team who will be going to the devastated areas where the typhoon struck and destroyed houses, lost loved ones and destroyed businesses. The team will be visiting these places and blessing specifically our students who suffered after the typhoon. This is indeed a way of becoming a blessing to these people.

Dare to Give

I agree and believe that when we learn to give and dare to give something to others especially in need, blessings follow. A friend says, it hurts to give but when you learn the hard way, giving is just a way of life and it won’t hurt you anymore but make you a “better you”.

Dare to give and wait for the Lord to bless your heart! I have learned it and I continue to dare and wait on the Lord’s blessing, He is a kind God and never fails His children. I love King Jesus and I want to honor Him always in my life.

This Christmas season, many are in need due to a very strong typhoon that hit and struck some parts of the country. It was so devastating but God in His mercy, protected and shielded us. We just need to ask for help and He is just a prayer away!

Why wait? Start giving and you will be blessed! Your little work done becomes much when you place it in the Master’s hands and it means something to someone.

Blessed to Bless

I was late attending a Pastors and Workers Christmas Party but I was blessed to see them with grateful hearts. After the trying moments of having a catastrophe with Odette super typhoon and the ongoing COVID. Many were blessed to be a blessing to others. Many of the brethren in our church helped and shared their resources for this purpose.

While looking at the Pastors and Workers’ presence, I was amazed how the Lord blessed them, and hearing their testimonies would mean something. Indeed, God is good and faithful to all of them. Their struggles and victories being shared encouraged everyone who listens.

A Day to Remember

Parties are allowed a month ago although it was not allowed for 2 years due to COVID. Our Christmas party is indeed an experience that everyone missed. We didn’t have this kind of experience since last year so everyone is hoping to see each other although some were adamant to attend due to the new variant that is already in the vicinity of our country. Somehow, we are still protecting ourselves in one way or the other and following some protocols.

Although only a few attended the said event we had fun sharing each other’s concerns, joys, and sorrows. We still show that we care. A nice feeling to love and to be loved. Then we went to a mall but to our surprise, people here and there are busy inside the mall having their own concerns. So we decided to go to a nearby market to buy our stuff. And went to a known hotel and dine. It was indeed a day to remember.
