19 things I’ve learned in 19 years

Since I turned 19, I want to share some of my learning throughout my year. I have learned more than these 19 lessons in my 19 years on earth. But I could only sum up everything into these 19. Take time to read this, I tried to make it shorter.

  1. Everything happens for a reason.

Everything that happens in this world happens at the time God chooses. (Ecclesiastes 3:1, GNT)

Madaming ganap at pangyayari simula ng naging ganap na dalaga na ako. Yung saya at lungkot andiyan na yan e. Nasasayo na lang kung ano pipiliin mo. One thing is all I know, “Everything has a purpose according to God’s plan”. May rason yan! Hindi sa lahat ng pagkakataon aayon sa mga gusto mo ang lahat ng mga nangyayari sa buhay mo.  Hindi palaging nasa taas ka, hindi rin palaging nasa baba ka. Hindi parating okay lang lahat. But then, it’s always a matter of CHOICE.

I must confess, I undergo to one of the painful decision in my life when I stepped on being 18. I must admit, those were aching and tough moments. Natagalan din akong tanggapin ang mga bagay-bagay non. I didn’t see it coming, if I knew I should’ve prepared for it. Sometimes, it’s hard to accept the things you didn’t expect to happen. It’s one of the hardest part in the healing process; ACCEPTANCE. Maraming oras na napatanong ako ng “Why did this happen to me?” o “Bakit ko pa kailangan daanan to?” Ang daming tanong sa isip ko na hindi masagot-sagot. But, It always lead me to 4 words “Everything happens for a reason”. And I believe, God has better plans for me. And it keeps me going! There are better times for that ‘thing’ to happen. Trust GOD, good or bad? It’s a lesson and the trip happened for a reason.

  1. Step outside of my comfort zone.

I will lead the blind along an unfamiliar way; I will guide them down paths they have never traveled. I will turn the darkness in front of them into light, and level out the rough ground. This is what I will do for them. I will not abandon them. (Isaiah 42:16, NET Bible)

Lately, I have been challenging myself to step outside of my comfort zone. Amazing things have happened. I’m one of a kind of person that is driven by fear of failure. Kaya, sometimes I always make sure na magiging successful ang result. Takot gawin to, takot gawin yan. Baka di ko magawa, baka mag-fail lang, nahihiya ako, di ko rin kaya yan, di ako magaling sa ganyan.

Lemme’ share you something… Mahiyain po ako in front of many crowds, hindi ko kayang magsalita sa harap dahil feeling ko wala kong masasabi parati or feeling ko di naman ako magaling magsalita. (I’m sure walang maniniwala but for those people who really knows me. Who knew me behind the preparation of every speech, I’m sure you know what I mean.) Sobrang kabado po talaga ako. Pag napipili po ko magsalita sa harap madalas tumatanggi yung bibig ko pero gusto naman talaga ng heart ko. It just “it takes a lot of courage for me to speak in front of many people”. Another thing, hindi ko din kaya mapag-isa. Hindi ko kaya kumaen alone. Hindi ko kaya bumili ng something ng magisa. Kahit saan ako pumunta nagpapasama pa ako noon.  Isa talaga to sa naging achievement para sakin, yung maovercome ko na ang di magpasama parati. Babaw ba? Hehe.

Sabi nga ni Max DePree, “We cannot become what we want to be by remaining what we are.”

When I started to step outside my comfort zone many new oppurtinities came. I discover new abilities and strengths I thought I never had. Pag hindi mo talaga triny yung mga bagay na uncomfortable ka at paulit-ulit ka lang dun sa mga bagay na master mo na, you won’t grow. Try mo muna kasi. Instead of saying I can’t, say ‘I can.’. Get out of the box. Try new things. New foods, new adventures, new skills. Make it new everyday! God makes all things new. (Revelation 21:5)

If you just stay there and sit, you will gain nothing, apart from more fear of the unknown and more worries of all the things you don’t have or have never done.

  1. Always give my best shot.

Whatever you do, do well. For when you go to the grave, there will be no work or planning or knowledge or wisdom. (Ecclesiastes 9:10, NLT)

Madalas ko tong sabihin sa sarili ko simula ng tumungtong ako sa third-year level ngayong college. Di naman talaga maitatanggi na may mga mahihirap na subjects. Meron akong subject last semester ang hirap niya po talaga mapapa-HUHU ka.  Matinding dasalan tuwing exam, board exam nga daw ika-nila. (Hi comscie’s, you know what I mean) Kailangan mong mag exert ng maraming effort para maabot ang goal mo. Ilang kape sa isang araw ang kailangan mo para lang magising ka sabay habang nainom ng kape sisigaw ka pa ng “laban lang! wooh” hahaha, nakakatawa man pero, ginagawa ko to. Try niyo din effective po.

Bata pa lang ako tinatak ko na at binaon ko na sa aking puso’t isipan na “gagawin mo na lang din yung isang bagay, bigay mo na yung pinakabest mo. Mag-aaral ka na lang din naman, galingan mo na, make it on top!” It was my motivation every now and then.

I remember one of the meeting in digisciples. Ate Zy Bambico told us ‘Kung ano yung role mo at kung saan ka nilagay ni Lord, dapat ikaw yung pinakamagaling doon. Kung floor director ka, dapat ikaw yung pinakamagaling na floor director. Kung designer ka, dapat ikaw yung pinakamagaling na designer.’

Put all your effort into everything you do. If you’re okay with putting in half the effort, you better be okay with half the results. If you want the best then give your best shot. Ayos ba yon? Go girl!

  1. Hard work pays off!

With all this going for us, my dear, dear friends, stand your ground. And don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for Him is a waste of time or effort. (1 Corinthians 15:58, MSG)

Every semester, “worth it! talaga”. Everytime I see my name on dean’s lister, I always says ‘hard work pays off!’. Di sayang lahat ng effort basta you give all credit to GOD. Malinaw sayo kung bakit mo pa kailangan laanan ng oras at panahon ang isang bagay. Everything is to give glory to our God. Mapa-saang aspeto man yan. Ang mga challenges andyan na yan e, sometimes it won’t be fun trying to get there, sometimes you will feel the tiredness and you’ll want to give up. But, if you keep going on, in the end, it’s all worth it. Goals are attainable if you put in the effort to achieve them.

You don’t remember the struggle or pain to get there, you remember how awesome it feels once you succeed and you already get there. You are more than conquerors, kaya tapusin mo na hanggang dulo. Ngayon pa ba?

  1. Sing it out.

A Psalm. O sing to the LORD a new song, For He has done wonderful things, His right hand and His holy arm have gained the victory for Him. (Psalm 98:1, NASB)

I know that I’m not a good singer but, I can sing. Like everyone else, all of us can sing. Yun nga lang hindi lahat gifted ng magandang boses and I’m one of them. But, no one can stop us from belting out some tunes. Sing your heart out! Even if you’re out of tune. I believe it’s about your heart and it’s not about your good voice. Kaya, may mga boses na alam mo yun, yung ramdam na ramdam mo, may hugot mula sa kailaliman eh. Because, singing is breathing for the soul. It’s something that you can express and say. On key, or off key, okay lang yan. It’s good for the soul.

Sometimes, we also have to consider what we sing. Kasi, kung ano yung kinakanta natin yun din ang usually na dinedeclare natin over our lives. Much better if we sing praises for the LORD. so He can feel your love for Him. Siya yung pagkinantahan mo di lang nasatisfy yung soul mo. Pero, pag kinantahan mo Siya, aside sa napangiti mo na Siya at na-glorify mo Siya, you are also acknowledging and inviting His presence and it will empower and strengthen you more. Often times, we think only of singing when we’re happy and we just feel a good times, but singing is not just that, it brings spiritual strength as well. Read Acts 16. Paul and Silas are persecuted and suffered unjustly imprisoned for the sake of the Gospel, and what do they do while they’re in prison? Sing! (Acts 16:25) Even in suffering, ikanta mo lang yan bes!

  1. Show appreciation for everything.

But we request of you, brethren, that you appreciate those who diligently labor among you, and have charge over you in the Lord and give you instruction. (1 Thessalonians 5:12, NASB)

O’ kay sarap magappreciate ng tao. The smallest gestures of appreciation and love from people around you would really mean a lot to them, minsan hindi lang natin alam. Pero everyone deserves to be appreciated. Hindi lang pag may okasyon. Hindi lang po masarap maappreciate ng iba pero, I realized na minsan mas masarap pa yung ikaw yung magaappreciate, we don’t even know what’s the impact of that to the person you appreciated. It can be as simple as “I appreciate your *tell him/her what’s good to him/her”. Just a simple compliment will make them feel loved. Do nice things for others. Kung hindi keri iappreciate ng personal, pwede mo naman siyang sulatan just to appreciate him/her, there is nothing more satisfying and heartwarming than putting a smile on someone else’s face. Be a blessing to other through appreciating them.

Take time every day to initiate random acts of kindness. Be kind to others, you don’t know what they’re going through. You can appreciate a person in many different ways sometimes, you also have to figure out his/her love language. “Do good and feel good.”

  1. Learn to forgive.

Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. And if he sins against you seven times in a day, and seven times in a day returns to you, saying, ‘I repent,’ you shall forgive him. (Luke 17:3-4, NKJV)

Well, natural talagang may makakasakit at makakasakit sayo. People will fail you. (but God will not). People are going to hurt you your entire life but forgiveness is not based on other people’s treatment to you but on your own attitude and decision. Last year, there was this person who hurt me (medyo bonnga), and I can’t explain the feelings I felt at first because I’ve never felt them before in my life. Yung ganong ka-O.A. Yes, I felt betrayed, discouraged, bitterness, hurt, pissed and many many more. But, after a month, I was able to forgive that person after all the process I’ve done, it doesn’t happen in a day, process talaga! Pero dapat faster ka din mag-process bawal slowmo, kasi the more mong pinapatagal the more mo lang sinasaktan at sinasaktan ang puso mo. After all the dramas na ‘why you do this to me?’, when I really forgave that person from deep inside of my heart, natanggal yung mga tinik eh, all the emotions that normally stirred no longer existed.

Forgiveness is the key to move forward. You cannot be stuck with anger and resentment forever but also acknowledge that healing takes time. Choose to move forward. – Ptra. Lovely Santiago

Yes, I can’t forget what that person did, It is hard to look at someone the same after they have done wrong to you. How do you forgive the person that caused you too much pain? Ano yun pagtapos ng lahat, limot mo na, nauntog lang? Syempre, hindi ganon yun. But I just decided to let go, and I choose forgiveness. You can’t forget but, you can forgive! I also realize that I have hurt a lot of people too (tao lang rin nasasaktan at nakakasakit) and I deserve forgiveness just as much as the next person. Everyone deserves forgiveness regardless of how bigger the offense is. God always forgives, so why can’t we?

  1. The older you get, the friendships are to maintain.

A man with many friends can still be ruined, but a true friend sticks closer than a brother. (Proverbs 18:24, ISV)

Sobrang naging mahalaga talaga sa akin ang quality time for every friendship that I had. I believe it’s one of the important thing that a friendship could have; yung oras. At yun yung way para mamaintain ang isang friendship. We all need friendships? right? Meron bang kayang mabuhay mag-isa? or rephrase na lang natin meron bang nabuhay sa mundo na automatic solo na siya? Wala naman di ba? Pero, as we getting older mahirap naman talaga imaintain ang friendship lalo na kung ‘hindi mo sasadyain na iwork-out to’. Sinasadya din yan! Graduating student in college, they’re a lot more work compare to last sems’s sched. But, I always make sure to have time for my friends. Because, I believe that’s the best love that you can offer to your friends, a quality time. I don’t want to make an excuse that I’m busy. Kasi, ‘pag mahal mo, lalaanan mo ng oras’. I-maintain ang friendship. It’s the best treasure that you can have.

Many find their significant others. Some of the people will be okay with the way you communicate and keep in touch, and others won’t. Friendships can also hurt you. But then, it’s important to realize we all lead busy lives, so showing your friends grace when they don’t meet your expectations is also an important thing to keep in mind.

There are also friends who won’t stay. But, will remind us to focus on the awesome people who stayed with us as opposed to focusing on the person who left. We, as humans, have a tendency to focus on what’s left, but the grass is not always greener on the other side. When you take a minute to think about the people in your life, you realize that you are too blessed with these people.

  1. Stay encouraged.

When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. (Isaiah 43:2, NLT)

Madami talagang pagkakataon na gustong nakawin ang joy mo at ididiscourage ka ng ididiscourage talaga but, it’s always a wise thing to stay encourage! Ikaw lang din ang talo pag nagpadiscourage ka. Strain forward to what lies ahead.

So lemme’ share you somethin’… I was invited to one of the largest event for the web. (can only explain the further details in personal message) I must admit that I felt that I’m not for that, I’m not good at it and I’m not fit for that. I have a lot of *gusto-ko-ng-lumubog-sa-lupa moments* that time. There’s this one person there who was about to discourage me and tells me a lot of things. Na-na-na-na. I honestly felt discouraged. But then, it suddenly reminds me that I should stay encourage. When you go through deep waters, God says ‘I will be with you’. Deep waters can symbolizes fields. Kung saang field ka man ni Lord nilagay ngayon, God is with you. You have nothing to be feared. There’s no reason for you to be discourage because, everyone has their own great qualities, great skills, great abilities and capabilities about themselves, and sometimes some people’s progress, and going to the next step takes a bit longer than others, but never be and let others discourage on how slow a progress you are making. Just keep going! Sabi nga ni dory, ‘just keep swimming, just keep swimming’. Have continual progress that is not stopping and just do your best. Always look forward in life.

May time na magfafail ka talaga but, the sign of failure means that you are trying. Nobody is a failure. You might fail at doing somethings, but never make that into a weakness. And it will never be your identity. Failure means success in the long run. Stay encourage! *tap yourself on the back.*

  1. You’ re not living for yourself alone.

Jesus said, “The first in importance is, ‘Listen, Israel: The Lord your God is one; so love the Lord God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence and energy.’ And here is the second: ‘Love others as well as you love yourself.’ There is no other commandment that ranks with these.” (Mark 12:30-31, MSG)

This month of february, it’s my everyday prayer to God na ‘Lord, enlarge my heart. I want to love more people’. Love one another by extending a helping hand also. It is so rewarding to show someone compassionate and kindness. I think everyone deserves to have that kind of feeling, to love and to be loved.

You also need a discipleship group or a faith group to grow in all area of your life. And to experience a godly love from one another. Remember you’re not living for yourself alone. Even Jesus doesn’t lived Himself alone. Want to join a discipleship group? Attend Sunday Service at Faithful Jesus Church at SM Muntinlupa Cinema 3, Tagalog Service: 9:30 AM and English Service: 10:40 AM. Someone will approach you there to join a small group. See you there!

  1. Don’t be afraid to try again.

But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded. (2 Chronicles 15:7, NIV)

Because I’m afraid to feel that again, to happen that again because of the same reason, I’m scared that I would make the same decisions which have caused me severe regrets, pain and self-pity. Hindi naman porket nagkamali ka ng isang beses eh ayaw mo na agad, ayaw mo na ulit magtry. Don’t let a hard lesson harden your heart. Every failures should be treat as a lesson. Nagkamali ka hindi para ulitin ulit. But, it will mold you to become a better person. You will become wiser if you encounter thiings like this. Lahat naman tayo may pagkakamali but it is not our identity. Bumagsak man, nadapa man, don’t be afraid to try again! Trust people again, take risks, don’t bury yourself again too deep. But, be wise to handle everything.

  1. Dogs are man’s bestfriend.

A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need. (Proverbs 17:17, NLT)

For those who followed me on instagram and use to checked my ig stories, you know definitely about this. Dati talaga hindi ako mahilig sa dogs. Takot pa nga ko sakanila para kasing ang sakit sakit pag kinagat ka nila. Pero, nung dumating si Shelby (my pet’s name) sa buhay ko, blessing talaga! As-in! Mapa-anong weather kaibigan mo talaga siya at kaibigan ka talaga niya. Tipong galing ka from school, galing ka from OJT, pagod and all pero everyday sasalubungin ka niya, lalambingin ka niya, nakakawala talaga ng pagod. Aside sa stress reliever siya sayo, comforter din. One time nung pumunta ako sa room ko ng naiyak pinuntahan ako ni Shelby, nung time na yun ramdam na ramdam ko na nararamdaman niya yung nararamdaman ko, inakyat niya pa ko sa kama tapos yung mahimas mo lang yung dog mo feeling comforted ka na. Dama niya din kapag malungkot ka, mapa-anong season man yan. Masaya ka, malungkot ka, alam mong nandiyan lang siya. Indeed, my dog is a great blessing for me! Hindi complete ang 19th ko kung wala si Shelby.

  1. Busyness is a choice.

But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, doesn’t it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me.” But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! (Luke 10:40-41, NLT)

If we read the whole story it symbolizes a great example of the consequences of busyness. We rush around doing “what needs to be accomplish,” while missing the glimpses of Jesus all around us and spend time with our love ones because, we are too busy to do a lot of things. Let us all allow ourselves to take it easy for a while. Now if you know me personally, you will know I am a ‘doer’. It’s in my nature to do a lot of different things and try different things as well, nabobored ako kapag hindi busy. Kaya, bata pa lang ako hilig ko na talaga sumali ng mga organizations or clubs sa school. Aligaga sa ganto, sa ganyan plus isasabay sa aral. Stressful naman talaga at overwhelming. It was really hard. But, I realize that sometimes busyness doesn’t help me anymore, mas lalo lang akong nagiging lituhin at nawawala yung quality sa bawat works. And because of this, I challenged myself. Magkaiba kasi yung busy ka sa productive. Kapag productive ka, from the word PRODUCT, ibig sabihin may naproproduce ka, may output. Pero, pag busy ka hindi automatic na productive ka. Magkaiba yun.

Sometimes we just have to manage, organize and find a way through a particularly exhausting tasks. Relax ka lang! Wag mo masyadong i-pressure ang mga bagay-bagay. Especially for those who have their thesis. Alam naman natin gaano kalaking oras ang kinakaen sa atin ng pag-gawa ng thesis? Ako po, from Monday to Thursday may OJT ako sa IFE Elevators Philippines. It takes 1 and half hour from here to Madrigal Alabang. Depende pa yun. Kasi ang hirap sumakay ng umaga. Makikipag-gitgitan ka talaga. 8A.M pasok ko hanggang 5P.M then paguwi naman yun yung time ko para i-check yung mga dapat namang gawin sa school. Time to review, time to take online quizzes, time to do my thesis. Pag friday naman pumupunta akong school yun na lang kasi yung time na makapagpacheck ng papers and all. 1P.M ng friday may cell group naman ako sa AMA Senior high then 4P.M pupunta akong church para mag CYOD-Wise Kids naman haggang 9P.M ako sa church ng friday. Then, saturday talaga yung pinaka klase ko simula 8A.M hanggang 5P.M after class dederetso naman akong church para i-meet yung disciples ko and umaasang maabutan pa ang CYOD. Ang sunday naman 8:30A.M ang call time namin sa digisciples. Of course, it’s sabbath day, time to worship GOD, time to serve people and after sunday service mentoring naman with my mentor after naman non, I have to bond with my family. In all of this, I don’t want to label myself as a busy person. But, I want to count myself as a productive person. Chinallenge ko talaga yung sarili ko ng bonggang bongga na “yes, graduating student ako. But, it will never be my excuse to love GOD and to love people.” Busyness is a choice. Make time for everything!

  1. Anxiety doesn’t help you.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7, NLT)

Anxiety does not define me. Isa talaga sa mga nagiging alalahin ko taon-taon, monthly-monthly, basta every semester. Walang iba kundi ang mahiwaga kong scholar. Maapprove ba o hindi, matatagalan ba o hindi, makakaexam ba ko o hindi. Laging nakabingit sa katotohanan ang peg ko every examination sa school. And I have to always remind myself that God is in control over everything so I don’t have to worry about it. If you have always been so incredibly self-conscious about your anxiety, leave it to GOD. Most of the time, it’s a test of faith. You will realize that anxiety will only affect you as much as you allow it to.

  1. Cherish your parents.

Honor your father and mother, as the LORD your God commanded you. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the LORD your God is giving you. (Deuteronomy 5:16, NLT)

Ever since, my parents are my priorities. And it should be maintained. Spend time with them, watch a movie with them, stroll with them, keep them updated, talk to them about your everyday, because parents really like that. Treat them with love and care. Minsan mas close pa tayo sa mga kaibigan natin pero try to reach out your parents, you can talk to them anytime. The more na kinukwentuhan natin sila, the more nabuibuild ang relationship. Parents are your bestfriends also. Keep yourself close to them and show them that you love them so much.

  1. Quality always wins in the end.

Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. (Matthew 16:24, ESV)

If you are about to build anything that is successful in the long term (mapa-business man yan, mapa-discipleship, mapa-pagaaral) you need to focus on ‘quality’. One of the great example of first quality that Jesus mentions is that a true disciple “denies himself”. Para magkaroon ng quality sa lahat ng bagay, there is something that you have to suffer. Si Jesus hindi nagfocus sa quantity, nagfocus Siya sa quality. Kasi, pag nagfocus ka sa quality kasunod na nun ang quantity. Invest in things that focuses on delivering quality and being the best, then it will prosper in the long run, too.

  1. Sleeping early is good for the health.

In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat– for He grants sleep to those He loves. (Psalm 127:2, NIV)

Ito talaga isa sa mga chinallenge ko sa sarili ko. If you know me, alam mong nocturnal person talaga ako at hirap na hirap talaga ako makatulog noon. I’m worried at staying up all hours of the night, but I have found, lately, that sleep is very important. When I started to have a proper sleep and have a good night sleep, it helps me function throughout the day. Sleeping early is really good for the health + you know, we all need a little bit of beauty sleep. It’s a gift from God.

  1. True joy lies in the act of giving.

A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed. (Proverbs 11:25, NIV)

We all know how great it feels to receive gifts. But, as I grow older I realize that it feels better to give rather than to receive. Our lives are richer when we give and that great ‘inner joy’ comes from reaching out other through their needs. Truly, the more you give from the heart, the more your life fills with joy, lots of happines and nourishes your soul. You attract the blessings that is coming from the Lord, whenever you bless other people in different ways.

 A Chinese proverb says: “If you always give, you will always have.”

  1. I am choosen. (period-no erase).

But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. (1 Peter 2:9, NLT)

January 23, 2017, it was last month, I felt that I’m not chosen that time. May pili-factor na naganap between me and another person. Di lang pala felt, suddenly, hindi pala talaga ako napili. Syempre, sad yun. Kahit sino naman siguro ayaw yung feeling na hindi siya mapili. Mapa-contest, mapa-best awardees, mapa-relationship. But, we have to accept it in the end. Of  course, we all want to be choose, but not all the time you’ll be choose by someone. Minsan mapipili ka, minsan hindi din. Pero, si Lord pag pinili ka, pinili ka na talaga. Wala ng atrasan yun! Ang malupet pa dun si Lord pag pumili hindi bumabase sa galing mo, mas ginagamit pa ni Lord yung mga ordinary na tao to do extraordinary things for His glory alone! Habang dito sa mundo pinipili kung sino magaling, kung sino ganto at kung sino yung ganyan pero, si Lord hindi ganon. Kaya, pag si LORD ang pumili sayo, humanda ka kasi kakaiba yun more than people who chose you in this temporary world. I remember that day, I told to Him, “Lord, hindi man ako yung napili neto, pinili Mo naman po ako” and I just pour it out to God. Just imagine, King of all kings, Lord of all lords, pinili ka! sinong hindi maamaze nun? Yung ‘chosen’ na word hindi yun base sa mga tao dito sa mundo pero yung description mong ‘I am chosen by God’ it will lasts eh. And that’s what matters to me most.

As you can see some of the stories there are like *reserved words* (still working on that), but if you want to get to know me more, I love to do it personally. The process of learning is never-ending, but I hope you did learn something from what I wrote. I would really love to tell more experiences of mine and the stories behind every lesson that I had.

18 Years of Existence

Image result for 18th birthday pinterest

It’s already 12:00 in the morning, February 27, 2016.

I officially turned 18 years old. Hello legal age!

Happy 18th birthday to me! Praise God for another chapter of my life!

Of course, it will be a long day ahead of me. I have no idea what will happen later. No plans at all. But, I just give it all to God.

My 18 years of existence is such a great life! Especially, when I started to have an intimacy relationship with Christ, life with Him is truly the best. Though there a lot of failures, mistakes, pains, difficulties and hardships, it is all the ones that make me to keep going. I keep trying harder and keep making things in proper order to rebuild things rightly. But then, it’s not by might, nor by power, but by His Spirit. I may not be perfect but His grace is more than enough.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. (2 Corinthians 12:9, NIV)

18 years of existence, full of ups and downs and lessons and twists and turns and happiness! Truly, I will be forever grateful to our God, to my family, relatives, mentor, leaders, friends, churchmates, of course for without them I won’t be who exactly am today. I love you all.

I’m super blessed, grateful and happy to have experienced another year and looking forward to what’s coming up.

Proverbs 9:11 • Lord, no word could describe how thankful I am for everything You’ve done in my life.

XO,

Sheim

My Roller Coaster 2015

Deut-31-6

365/365. This is the last day of 2015. So before 2015 ends, I decided to share some experiences,  tell you what has been happening in my life. And share the things that excite me. I just want to share this verse, readers! Deut. 31:6, masasabi kong parang roller coaster talaga ang 2015 ko, masyado ng gasgas ang quotation na “Ang buhay ay parang roller coaster, may ups and downs. ” Pero yun naman talaga yun eh may ups, downs, screams, laughs. Pero, sa lahat ng yon, Deut. 31:6 ang pangako ng Diyos na aking pinanghawakan sa buong taon.

Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you. (Deuteronomy 31:6, ESV)

For the last couple of months, I have been in transition. Okay tapos hindi, okay tapos hindi okay. Tataas sabay bababa, tataas sabay bababa. Pero sa lahat ng yon, dun ako mas lalong naging matatag, dun ko mas lalong nakilala yung sarili ko, dun mas lumabas yung tunay na ako, dun ako mas na transform, and it’s all because of His unending grace in my life. Too many to mention sa mga nangyare sakin, sa mga natutunan, sa mga big events sa buhay ko, lalo na’t pagdating sa school. Looking back on 2015, being a president of Junior Philippine Computer Society – AMA Biñan Local Chapter is one of the longest and hardest journey in my life. The rest of the time, I have to deal with people issues. You really have to be strong and courageous to handle everything, in terms of physical and emotional area. In all my year of leadership and representing JPCS, I can hardly recall a time when I was not dealing with an issue as such.  Some people issues are small, some are big, and some are unbearably painful. But, as I grew, I was able to handle those issues by the help of our God. Because of God’s wisdom in my life, I was able to manage all those issues, as long as I know my identity in Christ. Maybe, If I am not careful and was not able to manage, it can keep me up at night, and send me into bouts of depression, discourage and anxious.  Why?  Because understanding, inspiring, organizing, aligning, and keeping a group of people focused and passionate is simply difficult. Also, I always have to remind myself that I don’t have to please people. Being a leader can be a rewarding experience but it also means facing a host of anticipated and unexpected challenges.

Dumating din sa point na kailangan kong ayusin yung mga priorities ko sa buhay. The most challenging year as well. Struggle sa scholar, struggle sa pagpapataas ng grades, struggle na lang sa lahat. But then, I always have to remind myself ano nga ba talaga ang first priority ko? It is then that I should play my role as a wise, focused, and resolute servant of God. Time management is very important as well. Yan naman yung taon-taon na gusto kong iimprove sa sarili ko kung paano ko mamanage ang time ko.

Sa buong 2015 ko, alam ko si Lord ang aking kasama. Kaya nagagawa ko ang lahat ng ito. Sa lahat ng scars, hurts, pains, burdens, brokenness, sadness, I still thank God for everthing dahil walang panahon na pinabayaan Niya ko. Wala kong maisip na oras na iniwan Niya ko sa panahon na walang wala ako, sa panahon na down na down ako. Though, I feel tired and my breathlessness is still there in the wings, I have rested as much as I can so that I can try and fight this journey that little bit more. I’d say 2015 has been an incredibly tough year, It’s certainly been one of my most difficult, confusing years I’ve triumphed thus far & I know I’m not the only one in that boat. Right? But then, this scars reminds me how good and how faithful the Lord is. Sa pagtatapos ng taon ko, akala ko okay na, tapos na, akala ko magiging smooth na lahat, pero hindi pala. Isa sa mga painful experience ko yung pagtatapos ng taon (Too private). Pero kahit ganun pa man, dun mo pa din talaga makikita kung gaano kabuti ang Diyos sa buhay ko. Kahit na naranasan ko yun and I know everyone of us will experience that o yung iba na experience na, lahat naman tayo pagdadaanan yung sakit na ganun, always remind yourself : “Deuteronomy 31:6” Alalahin lang natin lahat ng pangako ng Diyos. God is so faithful. God is so good. God is so gracious. God is so awesome!

I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me. (Psalms 16:8)

After all, I think we are only just at the beginning of a very long and unknown journey. And as they say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!

So this was 2015 and it was fully packed and intense but in the end it was lacking far behind a lot of my personal goals and hopes, it’s good to be on a longer time out to find time to think about it again and make 2016 a bigger, better year and prove that mistakes can be made as long as you learned the lesson and adjust.

I have seen many failures throughout the year by myself but still God’s mercy and grace still remains. I thank God for having my family, church mates, mentor, disciple, and friends which I am tremendously, incredibly thankful. Thank you sa mga nag-stay. Thank you sa mga naging parte ng 2015 ko at sa mga susunod pang taon. Thank you sa mga nandiyan parati.Hindi ko na kayo iisa-isahin. Maraming salamat sa inyo!

There are many things in life to be thankful for.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. (Romans 8:28, NIV)

Marami pa rin ang mga blessings na dapat ipagpasalamat sa Diyos. Sobrang dami. Sobrang dami at sobrang dami. Una na sa lahat diyan ay ang makasama yung family ko magsimba tuwing Linggo. Kung meron man akong sobrang ipagpapasalamat sa Diyos yun ay yung blinessed ako ng family na ganto. A big shoutout to my family for standing by my side through this whole year. For my family who held my hand and said, “You got this!” in the times I was so close to giving up. My family who’s always there for me. Thank you, for an open ears to all my never-ending rants, for all the dramas, for all the kwentos and laughs. For my family who really cheered on me and supported me all through out the year, thank you so much and i love you.

🌸🌸🌸

After all, It’s a “BLESSED 2015”, looking back at the past 12 months, it has really been such a blast. This year has been one full of surprises. God gave me more than I expected and more than I think I’ll ever need. Thank You for all the answered prayers, Lord. As much as I want to repeat 2015, all I can do now is look and move forward to the new year. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me!

This year, I started writing the things that I want to achieve within this year and I am glad that most of those that I’ve written were already crossed out. Super excited na ko ngayong taon. Since, this 2016 mag dedebut na ko. Wuhooo! I’m turning 18 on February 27, 2016. *Oops!*. Excited na ko sa mga gagawin pa ni Lord sa buhay ko. Since, isa pa sa mga unforgettable experience ko ang maranasan ang Fire Camp nung Dec. 27, 28 & 29 kelan lang siya, so eto ako on fire na on fire. Wuhooo! And praying na mamaintain na to, ggang matapos ang taong 2016.

Making goals is one of my favorite things to do. I love having a plan, something to work towards.

Let’s make goals this year:
1) Share the Gospel to at least one person each month & build a cell group on my campus and on LNC as well, ask for they’re commitment towards the gift of eternal life the Lord Jesus offers.
2) Consistent spiritual discipline – quiet time in the morning (prayer, devotion, bible-reading, and quiet time/listening to God) and praying unceasingly as each moment goes.
3) Being productive and excellent on Digisciple (Ministry). To learn more and improve my commitment as well.
4) Encourage others through God’s Word as the Holy Spirit leads. Include prayer, too, and best done together if you can.
5) Use my planner every day I would really like 2016 to be a year of staying organized and on track. Checking on the short-term and long-term goal and make it happen as well.

Hoping to learn more in 2016 and a more productive year ahead of me and of you, too. Yow, Happy New Year!

It is always my goal to make the next year even better than the previous. I’m very excited to see what surprises God has in store for me this year! yay! 2016, I’m sure you will be amazing!

I’m so excited to embrace 2016. Not just with New Year Resolutions but, with an openness to receive more visions & goals coming from the Lord.

Another year of success and happiness has passed. With every new year, comes greater challenges and obstacles in life.

Thank God for everything that happened this year. There may be bad times but there’s always good times.

Wear your confidence!

WEAR YOUR CONFIDENCE! (AMA Mr. & Ms. Freshmen 2014)

10443503_791070250924650_6076027917408713101_n

Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised. (Hebrews 10:35-36 ESV)

Never in my dreams would I have thought about joining a pageant or any contest related to beauty or what. No wait, scratch that off. Never in my dreams would I even imagine myself ramping at the stage in front of many people. like woah. I was not like the other young pretty girls stands in their won sash and tiara in their room. And yeah, I was blessed to walk across the stage wearing this CONFIDENCE that came from God.

Speaking of CONFIDENCE. That was the question on Q & A Portion. (An unexpected Q&A Portion)

How will you compare your confidence compare to other contestants?

Hahaha. Sorry I don’t even remember the answer that I said. I just said whats in my heart and mind. lol, I don’t even know what I’m saying in front of many people. <like woah. do I look embarrassing?> But I remember a lil’bit of it. I said – I can say that I have more confidence than the other contestants because I already ask God for a Confidence & for wisdom. I already catch the confidence to face in front of all of you. And blah blah blah.

collage1

The first thing that comes in my mind is I think God has a purpose why He let me to join with this. At the very first place, I don’t really want to join at Mr. & Ms. Freshmen 2014. But I have no choice; my classmates already listed down my name. And I was like Me? Me? Me? Ayaw ayaw ayaw! I was so self-pity that time, I was thinkin’ that I’m not beautiful. I’m chubby. I don’t want to wear dresses. I don’t want make-ups. I can’t walk like a real model. I’m not good in proper posture. I don’t want those things. Because I know I’m not really called for that. Ever since, I don’t join any competition like that. But when Sir Sibayan already push me to join in. I was OK. Let’s try! I know God will never let me down. He will never put me in this competition just to have fun like wala lang. I know He has a purpose.

And definitely yes, I realize that because of that it allows me to boost up my self-confidence. Honestly, sometimes I don’t have a confidence. It helps me a lot all within a competitive atmosphere. That was the struggle that I’ve been experiencing right now, and that’s why God really use that Mr. & Ms. Freshmen 2014 to make me realize that Confidence is very important. I realize it when I’m about to answer at Q & A portion. I was able to handle the blow on my confidence and self-esteem. My mind said “I’m the daughter of God, then I’m beautiful and I’m intelligent” Kaya ko to! That’s why I hit that Q&A portion with full of confidence. Oha oha oha!

cats1

Participating in this and having a strong self-image can often go hand in hand. It’s a wonderful experience. I think the very best part about my Mr. & Ms. Freshmen experience so far is that it has given me a chance to be heard on something that is very important to me. And that is my GOD. (When I’m about to answer at Q&A portion) I was able to tell everyone that my God is the one who gives me confidence! “SI Lord lang po yung tangi kong maipagmamalaki sa inyo”

Everything you do, DO IT ALL FOR THE GLORY OF GOD! I believe that everything happens a while ago is because of His mercy and goodness in my life. For all the skills, talents, wisdoms, strengths, knowledge and yea confidence is come from our King of all kings. Praise God for that!

So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:ESV)

The right winner wins at the right time”. That was the first time I joined a competition like that but I won. It’s really a wonderful feeling. I was not that expecting much. But early in the morning I do my devotion. And I was about to pray to God to help me. And when we already ramp I was praying na ‘Lord, wag po sana ko madapa’ hahahaha. Isn’t funny? And grabe, so init talaga. And the crowd was about to shout-out their bets. After doing that ramp and Q&A portion. It’s time for awarding. While calling the other winners. I was like ohw, mukhang waley ako ah. Hehehe, After announcing the 2nd runner up and 1st runner up, last na, champion. Mr. Freshmen 2014 – #9 oh oh oh oh. Si Jef yun ah. Last na talaga. I was about to pray; Lord, Lord, Lord, favor favor favor. Tuuugdugtuuugduuuug. Ms. Freshmen 2014 – #9 Woaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Like woaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Me? Me? Seriously? Until I got on stage I was still shocked. Woooooooooah grabe! The crowd was shouting phelpsi, baby phelps. Wawahhh! Hahahaha. And while walking upstairs, I was shouting THANK YOU LORD! And after getting my sash and prize, I was shouting GLORY TO GOD. Expect the unexpected. Grabe! How I could I imagine that? I’m such a blessed girl here :”>

God was the one who brought me in this kind of competition to honor Him and to glorify Him in any way that He wanted and for that I want to give a Big Big Thank you to God. All praises, glory, honor and adoration to Him!! Para kay Lord to!!

This pageant really got the gears in my mind turning and I began to think, “What really defines beauty?” Is it clothes from overrated retailers like Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister, Candies, Folded and Hung or Forever 21? Is it faces trapped in a mask of unnatural make-up? Is it obtaining a body that resembles a beanpole?

10408814_10202388876349768_4978582585832349532_n

For me, No. It’s not. What honestly defines beauty is one’s personality. One’s attitude. One’s true self. One’s heart. PUSO BAGO MUKHA! Hehehe. Amazing pageant contestants are the one who put a smile on face, let out a laugh, and have a little fun. Because that is, and always will be, the definition true beauty. Speaking of putting a smile on your face hahaha, a while ago, I told jef “Sakit na ng panga ko tagal ngumiti” Hahaha. Just wear your big big smile girls. Wear a smile on your lips as often as you can, learn to smile, smile when you say hello to people, learn to find something to smile about, when you become conscious of this, it will be a surprise to you to find that there are more things to smile about than to frown about. A smile brightens up your day and makes someone else feel much better, you can never go wrong with a smile. For a true beauty queen, it’s not about the title, or the crown or attention; it’s about the experience. It’s about feeling beautiful and knowing even when you don’t win, you have never felt more beautiful than you did that night. It’s about making new friends, it’s about learning style, grace, poise and how to speak in front of people. In the end if nothing else, you take away from the experience a greater sense of self-worth and accomplishment. That is a pretty great prize.

10404526_10202388913350693_186371510995194847_n

10422561_791071087591233_7932283463569086583_nNaturally I would have been beyond nervous, but much to my surprise.  And also very freeing to show them who am I. I was happy to present me — just the way I am, and just the way God made me. I am glad to have taken the experience. 

So much for now. Thank you, God. Thank you for the Grace. Thank you for those people who help me to make over <esp. Liriel Alferez> and for those who cheer me! Thanks CA! Thanks Vikings!

You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you. (Song of Solomon 4:7 ESV)

Tiaras! Walk in with confidence!

My Breathe Campference 2014 Experience

My Breathe Campference 2014 Experience

Isa ito sa mga napakasayang campference, nakakablessed na gathering at memorable event ngayong taon, Isa ito sa parte ng buhay ko na tunay akong nakaranas ng Freedom, which I exhale all my burdens, inhale all of HIS blessings and favor, catch the miracles & get caught by the vision. Ito rin yung araw na binigay ko yung best ko to serve God through Media. Ibinibigay ko naman ang best ko everytime na nagproprojector ako dahil alam ko that’s for the Lord and I was able to do that to glorify HIM and to honor HIM, pero sa tingin ko nung campference ibang iba talaga eh. Paanong ibang iba? yun yung araw na sobrang nakakapagod at alam ko lahat kami sobrang pagod na pagod hindi lang ako but all of us. Kung tutuusin nakaupo lang naman ako mag-gabi at pindot lang ako ng pindot ng arrows (up & down) pero that time I really felt the exhaustion and languidness. takbo dito, usb doon, bulong dito, ate zyra doon, pagkakamali dito, at pasensyahan dito, pasensyahan doon. Siguro failed man sa paningin ng iba, ang dami kong mali sa mga lyrics, napakadali na lang ng gagawin ko pero hindi ko pa magawa ng maayos, pero yun yon eh, it’s not about that, yung mga pagkakamali ko. For me, masaya ako para gawin ang bagay na iyon. I know that even the little things I’ve done that day, I bring smile to God’s face. Napakaliit lang ng bagay na iyon yung pagproproject ko, pero It brings joy to me because pleasing GOD is one of the purpose of our life. It’s a important task to do that. Para sakanya yon eh. It’s a pleasure and honor to serve the King of all Kings. Truly no regrets to serve HIM for all of those failures and ‘pagalit moment’s nina Ate Zy, Kuya Jon, at Ate Nadz. Kaya naman nung campference punong-puno ako ng presence niya at ng mga salita niya sa loob ng dalawang araw (April 17-18, 2014). Syempre hindi hahayaan ni Lord na hindi ako ma’empower at hindi ko maranasan ang matinding matinding presence niya. I saw the reign of God sa tuwing Praise & Worship. Grabe! We really open our eyes, ears, minds and hearts to the opportunities that God presents for us to participate fully, and to experience HIS unconditional love. wala akong masabi kung hindi Wow. all of our lives are enriched and deepened. I am grateful beyond measure for the work of God.

For the Scriptures say, As surely as I live, says the LORD, “every knee will bend to me, and every tongue will confess and give praise to God.” (Romans 14:11, NLT)

Image

Grabe! talagang nakita ko at saksi ako na every knee bow down before HIM & every tongue confess to God. I was so amazed that time. kaya hindi ko napigilang kuhaan ng litrato ang moment na to. Every family strive to please Him. We cannot do this on our own strength. All of us need total dependence on Him. Too wonderful to saw that moment.

Well, masyado na ata akong nagii-skip sa mga pangyayari. Isa-isahin natin ang mga experience ko simula ng Day 1 to Day 2. Umpisahan natin sa excitement ko nung April 16, 2014 (kinabukasan campference na!)

ALERT ALERT ALERT! Ate Zyra’s Post on Digisciples:

* Guys kaya natin to. Hehehe. :)))))) Mag-share lang tayo ng mag-share. Invite people who are NEEDY, RELUCTANT and UNWANTED. Gusto ni Lord ng FULL HOUSE, ung punong-puno. Kaya natin ito with the grace of God 🙂

* We have one day left. I encourage everyone to promote & reshare everything. Malaki po ang networks natin. Madami tayong friends. Maraming makakakita nung ads. Please invite EVERYONE. We have 24 hours left. Thanks.

* Please alert the Digisciples to be very loud and promoting the campference specially today as in very loud…invite everyone…. (from Pastor Toto)

Kaya naman, todo-todo at push na push na ang lahat magplug. infernesss, ang saya sa pakiramdam makita yung wall mo na punong-puno ng Breathe 2014. hash tag dito, hash tag doon! Aligaga na ang lahat magshare ng magshare ng ads mapa-digisciple man o hindi. sa sobrang excited at sobrang tuwa ko sa kakapromote ng Breathe 2014 hindi pa ako nakakapag-ayos online forev lang hehehe, at nung magprepepare na ko ng gamit at damit ko. Halaness! Ang CYOD at UP shirt ko pala nasa labahan, Sorry na favorite shirt. Kaya ito laba time. Wet look sila:

Hindi rin naging madali sakin bago maka-attend ng Breathe Campference 2014, andaming challenges. Una na yung pagpapaalam, yung pambili ng ticket at pagsagot ng ticket sa mga mentees (Ang sakit walang pumunta sa kanila). Yung tipong the week ahead, todo sipag muna ko sa tahanan gusto ko rin silang ma-invite pero napakaliit ng faith ko nung mga panahon na iyon. masyado akong naging hopeless na hindi na talaga sila makakapunta sa camp huhu! so at the end, nalungkot ako at wala yung family ko don 😦

Pagkababa namin ng jeep nag-aantay na samin si Jafet. tapos di pa namin alam kung maglalakad ba kami or sasakay kaya nag stand -by muna kami ng panandalian kaya mas tumagal.

After Praising the Lord, introduction to speaker na. Our first speaker is.. (tentenen!):

Pastor Elizabeth ‘beth’ Paller

Image

Then the Lord God formed a manfrom the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. (Genesis 2:7, NIV)

3 Steps into Freedom:

  1. Know that Jesus came to set us free.

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8, NIV)

Even we are still bondage, Mahal tayo ni Lord. We live because of the grace of God.
No prisoner has the key to unlock the door

2.  Know your identity in Christ

It can desolve strongholds, deception, ignorance.

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. (1 Peter 2:9, NIV)

  • The primary weapon of the devil to a person into bondage is deception
  • Lahat ng tumatanggap kay Lord, ay annointed
  • Don’t let the enemy steal your identity
  • Take your responsibility and speak directly to satan
  • Always think kung nakakaplease kay Lord
  • Satan is like a invisible germ
  • Submit yourselves to God

Image

Nakakablessed si Ptra. Beth, hihi, Now I know that I am free from my all Bondages.

 Blessings Receive Everyone Available To Have Eternal Life

JOSHUA 1:6-18

Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them.

“Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

10 So Joshua ordered the officers of the people: 11 “Go through the camp and tell the people, ‘Get your provisions ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the Lord your God is giving you for your own.’”

12 But to the Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh, Joshua said, 13 “Remember the command that Moses the servant of the Lord gave you after he said, ‘The Lord your God will give you rest by giving you this land.’ 14 Your wives, your children and your livestock may stay in the land that Moses gave you east of the Jordan, but all your fighting men, ready for battle, must cross over ahead of your fellow Israelites. You are to help them 15 until the Lord gives them rest, as he has done for you, and until they too have taken possession of the land the Lord your God is giving them. After that, you may go back and occupy your own land, which Moses the servant of the Lord gave you east of the Jordan toward the sunrise.”

16 Then they answered Joshua, “Whatever you have commanded us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go. 17 Just as we fully obeyed Moses, so we will obey you. Only may the Lord your God be with you as he was with Moses. 18 Whoever rebels against your word and does not obey it, whatever you may command them, will be put to death. Only be strong and courageous!”

Sa verse na yan nag-focus si Pastor. Nagka-impact talaga sakin yung sinabi ni Pastor na: ” Ang taong anak ng diyos na may courage ay careful at ang taong anak ng diyos na may tapang ay open-minded ” There’s always a “Na” . I realized that there are times that I don’t have enough courage then maybe I’m not careful. Sometimes, I don’t have that ‘tapang‘ then maybe because I’m not that open-minded.

Pray Energetic | Take possessions, and Praise & Worship our GOD, wholeheartedly. Keep HIS commands and obey HIM always. Thanks for the realization, Pastor Willy!

After Pastor Willy’s word, Praise & Worship again.

Ito yung part na medyo naiyak ako. Hindi lang pala medyo, pero Oo talaga hehe

1976958_388214874654856_3391542212885819985_n10154913_388854034590940_6198390150540156586_n  1512457_388854091257601_2714548028386536899_n

Ito kasi yung part na pupuntahan mo yung family mo. Ang totoo niyan, pinipigilan ko pa umiyak nung mga panahong ito. kaso di kinaya eh. Nakakalungkot lang na nakikita mo yung mga family’s na nagyayakapan. And Me? I was wondering na andun din sila. Kahit nagproprojector ako nakatungo lang ako kaya medyo nahihiya talaga ko. Pero yun kasi yung way ko to express myself na nalulungkot talaga ko. At hindi ko kailangan pigilin. Kaya naman, I decided to hug my mentor. Siya nga! Siya nga muna ang family ko dun hehe *my spiritual mom- Ate Mae* Sabi ko sakanya, Nalulungkot ako wala mentees ko wala pa family ko. How sad 😦 Pero buti na lang andun siya, may tao pa rin akong maiiyakan ko na malapit sa aking puso. (lalim). Niyakap ko na rin ang iba ko pang mga Leaders. At ito! Ito ang wow. hehehe, I was strong enough to say ” Ate Mitch – pahug naman po ” . Grabeeee! Masayang masayang masaya ako pakiramdam ko nakahinga ko ng malalim. Niyakap ako ng mother of multitudes – Pastor Mitch Gustillo. To be honest, nung tumapak pa lang ako sa Faithful Jesus Church. Nahihiya ako kena Pastor. Kahit say-Hi lang, wala talaga akong lakas ng loob. kaya naman nung niyakap ko siya, heaven– ang feeling hehe. Para sa akin, siya ang pinaka the best Preacher. She keep me inspired now and then.

MULTIPLIER

Dapat tayo ay multiplier para may product (productive).

Acts 11:19-26, NIV

19 Now those who had been scattered by the persecution that broke out when Stephen was killed traveled as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus and Antioch, spreading the word only among Jews. 20 Some of them, however, men from Cyprus and Cyrene, went to Antioch and began to speak to Greeks also, telling them the good news about the Lord Jesus. 21 The Lord’s hand was with them, and a great number of people believed and turned to the Lord.

22 News of this reached the church in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch. 23 When he arrived and saw what the grace of God had done, he was glad and encouraged them all to remain true to the Lord with all their hearts. 24 He was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and faith, and a great number of people were brought to the Lord.

25 Then Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul, 26 and when he found him, he brought him to Antioch. So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with the church and taught great numbers of people. The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch.

John 12:12-19, NIV

Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King

12 The next day the great crowd that had come for the festival heard that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. 13 They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting,

“Hosanna![a]

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”[b]

“Blessed is the king of Israel!”

14 Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, as it is written:

15 “Do not be afraid, Daughter Zion;
    see, your king is coming,
    seated on a donkey’s colt.”[c]

16 At first his disciples did not understand all this. Only after Jesus was glorified did they realize that these things had been written about him and that these things had been done to him.

17 Now the crowd that was with him when he called Lazarus from the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to spread the word. 18 Many people, because they had heard that he had performed this sign, went out to meet him. 19 So the Pharisees said to one another, “See, this is getting us nowhere. Look how the whole world has gone after him!”

” The result of the lack of trust in God’s plan results to blindness”

3 Kinds of People:

  • CROWD – What’s in it for me?

* The tendency to be self-centered leads to deception

* If we are too focused on what we want, we will not see what we really need

  • RELIGIOUS – Who is in control?

* Break-ups are needed for us to grow up

* God wants us to be depended on Him

* Only matured people can handle relationships well

  • DISCIPLES – Why can’t I understand?

* Faithfulness should come after having faith

* Don’t be religious. Relationship dapat!

* There is no spiritual drive-thru. We have to pass through trials & tests to stretch our hearts and minds.

* The entrance of Jesus in our lives create wonderful experiences

1. REDIRECTION

Break out from the ordinary

* Only the engaged mind could create meaningful patterns

* Quitters never handle destiny

2. GET OUT OF THE RUT

Robotics unchallenged thinking

3. HOSANNA MOMENTS (Matthew 26:38)

means being led

* Life is an open door ♪

Hanggang ngayon di ko pa rin po napopost itong My Breathe Campference 2014 Experience. Hehehe, medyo mahabang araw na ang nakalipad. medyo natagalan ata ako sa pagta’type ko sa mga word ng speakers. Well, medyo paiikliin ko na lang po ito ngayon.

Sa day2, nawalan ako ng pera as ing’ lahat ng pera, medyo-medyo malaki rin. syempre para sakin malaki na ang 300 pesos, dahil istudyante pa lang naman ako. Maaga akong umalis sa bahay ayoko kasing ma-late na namana ko ng katulad kahapon. Ito na nakasakay na ko sa tricyle nagbayad na ako ng 12 pesos, tapos nilabas ko na rin sa wallet ko yung 10 pesos para hindi na ako dudukot pag-sakay ko ng jeep. eventually, nalaglag nga ang wallet ko. yun ang sa tingin ko. pero yun na nga iyon. napansin ko na lang na nawala na yung wallet ko pagbaba ko ng jeep, andun ako sa mercury drug inaantay ko kasi si Jafet. tapos ng i-check ko yung wallet ko hala nawawala. ansa kutob ko ng nalaglag yung wallet ko kasi nga sira yung bukasan ng bag ko tapos, niwalang bahala ko lang tapos, as ing’ zero bal ako. Eh kailangan makabalik ako sa boundary as ing’ wala ko money tapos, tinawagan ko si Jafet napakahirap niya pa i-contact, So naiiyak na ko. sabi ko sa sarili ko, wala akong ka-pera pera. kakakuha ko lang ng pera kanina, kaka-recharge ko lang, at kailangan ko makabalik sa boundary napaka-effortless lang rin kung babalik pa ko dun edi sana di na lang ako pumunta dito. err, Naglalakad na ako pabalik ng boundary sabi ko sa sarili ko, Hala! aabutin ako ng sampung taon bago makapunta dun eh inaantay ako ni jafet nakakahiya. So, sabi ko kailangan ko makasakay ng libre. nagdadasal na ko habang nagaantay ng masasakyan may dumaan na tricycle na walang sakay. pero naghahanap ako ng mukhang good man. kaya I ask God for string discernement that time, tapos nakakita ako ng matandang nasa motor. nakita ko na siya kanina pa before pa ko nawalan o bumaba sa jeep. edi nagexplain-explain ako. hinatid na ko sa Manok ng Boundary wahhh. at pagbalik ko dun, ayun Wala na nga. naiiyak ako at the same time may inis. pero wala kong magawa. Alam kong iproprovide ni Lord ang lahat. pumasok sa isip ko na bakit ngayon pa ko nawalan ng pera. bakit ngayon pa? Bigla kong nakita sina Sid at Jafet sumakay na kami at pinautang muna ko. Thank you, Lord for sending them to me. pagdating ko sa Sports Complex. salubong agad ni ate nadz na mag-set up na ko. kaya tumakbo ako sa C.R, umiiyak lang ako. wala kong pera. at yung pera na yon galing pa sa net shop namin kakabigay lang ni mama sa akin, tapos nawala ko lang ng isang iglapan isa yung sa reason kung bakit ako nalulungkot, hindi dahil sa magugutom ako, sabi nga ni ate zy, hindi ako magugutom doon dahil tahanan yun ng Panginoon. Huhu :\ Sabi ko nga unting iyak lang after non, kailangan tayo na agad. Pera lang yun para kaiyakan ko ng sobra. paglabas ko ng C.R, mga 5 mins. lng naman ako dun hehe. alam na nina Ate Zy, sabi niya siya na daw sasagot ang pamasahe ko sabi ko wag na po. syempre nakakahiya. Later on, sabi ni ate zy, ibenta ko daw ang pamaypay at yung kita doon, sakin na. sayang din ag 100 pesos. Ito na.

10261795_835917066421634_410152706_n

Leadership Influence

* You cannot give what you do not have

* Our identity is rounded in Christ.

* Always know you ‘Why’, ‘What’, ‘How’, ‘Why’?

* Minsan alam natin kung saan pero nagbubulag-bulagan lang tayo.

Galatians 5:7-9, NIV

You were running a good race. Who cut in on you to keep you from obeying the truth? That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you. “A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough.”

& Leadership is anytime you are trying to influence that thought and actions of another individual in either your personal or profession life.

2 Choices in life:

  1. To influence
  2. To be influenced

Who are you influencing & Who is influencing you? ( 2 Corinthians 15:33)

What’s your emphasis:

  1. Prize
  2. Press
  3. Partner

Accomplishing goals..

Your leadership id defined by yours: (It matters most)

  1. Role
  2. Relationship

* Let’s influence others to change their ways.

* God wants you to be influenced in your home.

* Don’t be REACTIVE but be PROACTIVE

* Reactive – means reacting of our emotions

* Proactive – means holding of our emotions so we can think

* Separate listening from your doing

* Before Jesus talks, nakinig muna siya!

Value Relationships:

  1. Circle of conern
  2. Circle of influence

Matthew 5:13-16, NIV

Salt And Light

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Worship and Mission

Four Special Words:

  • Understanding (Hosea 4:6)

* When we talk about worship, it’s all about love

* Understand that we are loved by God

WORSHIP + GIVING = SERVICE = LOVE (Matthew 11:28-30)

* Understand that we are love GOd and People (1 John 3:23)

You can love if you are:

  1. Thankful
  2. In culture of honor
  3. Have a grateful heart

* Insecure people became insecure because of their opinions.

  • In culture of seving
  • Relationship

* Ang totoong disiplina ay yung kusa

Matthew 10:7-8, NIV

As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heavenhas come near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy,[a] drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.

  • Simplicity of Faith

* Revelation is revealing and disclosing

* Worship and vision is possible with the favor of God.

* Ang genuine ng worship ay concern sa intercession

Sobrang nakakabless si Pastor Rommel. Grabe, yung oras na nagwoword siya eh patay na oras. Nakakaantok na oras kumbaga pero kahit sobrang antok ako at kita kong ganon din ang iba, talagang walang natulog hehee. Very interesting talaga yung pagwo-word niya. Sobrang kakatawa namin, nakakawalang antok nadin. I’m really blessed to listen to his words. Ang mismo niya. Di ko alam na siya pala kumanta ng Mahal na Mahal kita Panginoon. Favorite kong Christian Song yun sa tagalog. Galing talaga ni Lord sa buhay niya!

Total Submission to God and Leaders

How to develop the attitude of love, respect & submission to God and Leaders?

* Vision – dream (Genesis 2:5)

* Passion – desire (Genesis 2:7)

* ( Matthew 9:27, Matthew 20:1, Genesis 2:21-24)

1. LOVE ♥

* Commitment, Relationship-Connected

What is the greatest enemy of love?

To Finish & Task

Acts 20:16-24

16 Paul had decided to sail past Ephesus to avoid spending time in the province of Asia, for he was in a hurry to reach Jerusalem, if possible, by the day of Pentecost.

17 From Miletus, Paul sent to Ephesus for the elders of the church. 18 When they arrived, he said to them: “You know how I lived the whole time I was with you, from the first day I came into the province of Asia. 19 I served the Lord with great humility and with tears and in the midst of severe testing by the plots of my Jewish opponents. 20 You know that I have not hesitated to preach anything that would be helpful to you but have taught you publicly and from house to house. 21 I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.

22 “And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem,not knowing what will happen to me there. 23 I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me. 24 However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the taskthe Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.
