What I Want VS. What God Wants

June 02, 2016 exactly 12 a.m in the morning it was announced in Manila X Festival’s site that I won 2 tickets. Obviously, I was so surprise and glad. Before June 02, 2016 around last week of May, I really prayed and did an action to win in that contest because, I really wanted to be there and witness the first ever Manila X Festival. And most of all, I want to see my favorite artist and bands there like Yeng Constantino, Up Dharma Down and The Juans. hehehe. So, I don’t want to miss that opportunity. But, to make the long story short, I couldn’t make it. (Right now, I’m very sure the concert is on going. lol.) Last night, after my night class, I went to church for worker’s meeting. And then, my mentor already knew it that I will not be able to attend CYOD even if I didn’t tell her earlier so one of my ka-mentee teased me hahaha. Plus, travelling back at home my disciple PM’ed me. She told me that she will attend CYOD. So, I am more confused If I’m still going on Manila X Festival or will attend CYOD. Huhuhu. I talked to GOD. And praying for a wisdom. Because, that moment I don’t feel a sense of “peace” to go in that concert. Although, that’s once in a lifetime. Yes, honestly, I don’t want to miss the opportunity to see my fav’s. But, it will break my heart if I miss the opportunity to meet my disciples.

June 04, 2016, 9 a.m in the morning it was all set. I’m very prepared and excited for the concert but still my heart is not at peace. After a few hours, my best friend called me that she can’t make it today. I felt sad about her news. So, I texted my other friends and one of my friend is willing to be with me. But then, I decided not to go anymore. So, I already told my mama & my mentor that I won’t go on Manila X Festival. My mama told me that maybe “it is God’s will”. And my mentor told me that “God has His ways.” In any decision we have the opportunity to choose. And this is one of the opportunity to practice wisdom. There is a purpose behind everything. I am so busy planning for the concert not even asking God’s opinion about it. Now, I learn to lean. I learn to ask and seek. I learn to be more obedient [obedience out of love]. I learn that my God is so powerful enough to do and fulfill EVERYTHING in EVERY WAY. I want Him to direct my path even when I’m about to make choices in life. So, yeah, I was about to take a bath a while ago when GOD spoke to me, I just cried.. To be honest, I want to be in Manila X Festival but, I want to obey and submit to God [out of love]. I should be serious about following God’s will, and I have to recognize that it’s not about getting what I want, but what God asks. His will is what’s best for me. 2PM, me and my ka-meente went to te amo and 4PM, I attended CYOD. I’m telling you, “It’s worth it!”. Worth it to choose HIM first and put GOD above all else.

Building Your Life

tumblr_nbuqi7QsvC1r0hkozo1_1280

The life that you are living now is like building a house. How you build your life will determine your destiny, not just for this life on earth but also for eternity. You must develop a solid foundation in your life or all the other things in your life won’t hold up. When it comes to building your life, the foundation is the basis of everything that is to come. So how do you develop a solid foundation? Paul points out in 1 Corinthians 3:11 that your foundation is Christ. This foundation is firm and strong. You can rely on it and it will never give way. If you build a life on Christ, you live in total dependence on Christ and His Word. Just as a house rests on a firm foundation, your life must rest on Christ in order to stand the tests of time. By building your life on Him, you will stand safe and sure!” – Dr. John Barton

If It’s For The Lord, Walang Sayang!

 tumblr_nb66wlKmZR1qhmhdfo1_540

So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless. (1 Corinthians 15:58, NLT)

When the things you do are sincerely in the name of The Lord, you can rest assured your labor is not in vain. There is no wasted effort if it’s for the Lord. He knows your heart and He knows all that you’re going through (Luke 16:15) when it’s right and when it’s wrong. We may labor and sacrifice a lot in different things, but if it was not built up for the Lord Himself, it counts for nothing. It doesn’t matter what others say about you or about the things you strive to do for God. Go lang ng go, if it’s for the Lord. It counts for nothing, if it was not really for the Lord. It only matters what He thinks. It’s about what you do and who you are in the eyes of the Lord not in men.

Whatever we do, if the Lord is not with us, if the Lord is not doing it with us, Solomon says, it is then meaningless. Wherever we go, if the Lord goes not with us, it is then meaningless. What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul.
(Matthew 16:26)

Be the kind of a person who doesn’t just want to do well to please or compete with others, but because he/she has given himself/herself fully to the work of the Lord, and he/she desires to please Him, to glorify Him and give Him honor. Because when you do, your labor is NOT in vain. Let God be your inspiration whatever you do. You’re doing this for one reason; FOR HIM ALONE!
 
WAG KANG MAPAPAGOD. IF IT’S FOR THE LORD, WALANG SAYANG!

Write the Vision

Write

Few days to go and we will be celebrating the birthday who gave salvation to us. Although it’s really not the true date it doesn’t matter. What’s the most important is at the start of the day, giving thanks to the Lord who gave His one and only life for us to be reconnected to God. For sure, everyone is busy. Buying and wrapping gifts, preparing and having their grocery for Noche Buena. But, me I’m busy here to write my vision for the next coming year (2015). And I’m so excited to catch more visions from God. I decide to leave my past behind. As the days draw down toward December 31, I am watching and listening. I’m excited to show God’s vision for me. My pens are ready to write it down. I want to know the plans He has for me this next year. I know His ways are always good. Not my will. But His will.

As I read the bible reading for today. These verses struck me:

And the LORD answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.” (Habakkuk 2:2, ESV)

God says “Write down what you see.” I think it is vitally important to write out what God is telling you. That takes it out of the realm of feelings and helps you hold on to His Word even when things look bad.

Habakkuk also says that the vision must be written clearly so people can read it and then run well — so the readers may run.

Either way, our ability to run the race will is tied to our understanding of God’s plans for us.

God has an appointed time to fulfill the visions, dreams, and desires in your heart. I’ve check my journal a while ago and I use to take a look the list of my visions for 2014 and some of them didn’t happen (actually – many of them), and I felt sad about it. Just because it has taken a long time or because I’ve tried and failed doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen. I will not give up on those dreams and visions! My heart is shouting. My heart is desiring! And I will never stop praying and asking it to Jesus. I will not be complacent about pursuing what God has placed in my heart.

Our God is a faithful God. No matter how long it’s been, no matter how impossible things look, if you’ll stay in faith, your set time is coming.

Have a clear vision of yourself. Find ways to be there. Have a tunnel vision towards it. Don’t just stick to what or who you are right now. You are not being nurtured if you stay as is. You live to have a meaningful one.

Weekly Post: Chapter 3 (The lost and found)

WEEKLY POST(6)The story of my life has many chapters. One bad chapter doesn’t mean it’s the end of the book.

Sa dami dami dami dami dami dami ng tao dito sa mundo paano ko mahahanap ang nawawala kong wallet? Fresh pain a while ago. I have that feeling na maraming importanteng bagay doon para sa akin. Memories and remembrance? Yung gospel and invitation na unang invite sa akin. Yung id’s, yung tickets. syempre yung allowance. Lahat lahat pati yung wallet na mahal :\, I too much value the things I have and the things that are given to me that’s why it cause me pain. Sunday morning when I lost my wallet. I dunno’ where I misplace it. All I know, that wallet is very important to me. Umaasa akong maibabalik siya. Til’ now, the pain. It won’t go away, today. But the reality too won’t change. It is a decision for me to completely forget what happened and convince myself that it never come back anymore. But I pray, kung sino man may hawak nung wallet na iyon. Lord, touch his/her heart. So I will wake up in the morning bearing the pain of reality because I am in the road of accepting. Wallet lang yun, hindi ko pagpapalit ang gladness ko.

The truth is, I will not blog about this, wallet thinggy-u know. I’m physically tired pero magalak ang aking puso sa pagkapanalo nitong intams. 3 days intrams was a great experience for me. First time ko mag-intrams sa AMA. And I received 3 champions (Table tennis – Single [Women] & Mixed Doubles, Badminton -Single[Women]) All glory belongs to God! One thing I realized, nanalo nga ako. But after all this thing, Inside my heart, may lungkot pa din. This coming saturday, may event sa church. Na dapat nakapaginvite ako instead of playing around, hitting that shuttlecock. Waking up early, doing stretching and waiting for the game. I feel guilt. I feel unsatisfied. I feel sad. Because I feel right now, that it was a wrong way. But, thanks be to God, for His mercy and grace. For He is a forgiving God!

Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit. (Psalms 32:1-2, NIV)

Sa kabila ng lahat ng ito, saya sa pagkapanalo at lungkot sa biglang pagkawala, Still, PRAISE GOD! Maybe now, I’ll start another chapter. Move on. I am seeking always to have a start because I want to forget things I’ve done in a wrong way. But it is supposed to be like that? Forgetting what is behind and run like you had never carried faults in your life?

Do we really need to forget? Because at some point, sometimes, I see sweetness in pain. I see a charm in tears that have fallen. Looking back, thou’ it was a mess and unattractive, it is the reason I appreciate where I am and what I have today.

Mistakes, pains, and hardships are the ones we  mostly want to forget. But it is all the ones that  make us to keep going. We  keep trying harder, we keep fighting, we keep running, and we keep making things in proper order to rebuild things rightly. It  helps us to create our trace in this world. So that at the end of our lives we can say to ourselves, “My Life isn’t lifeless at all!” 

At the  end of  the  day I realize it is not about everything that happened. It is about the time I am always looking at. I am still that girl who thinks that time is always running out. I still put comfort in fast-paced and never want to see things slowly or in its regularity. Still, every time I fell to the ground, & every time I fail, still God’s mercy remains. Failure and success are both the possible endings of every season in my life.

In failure, I truly learn my weaknesses and things I cannot do next time. In success, I learn my strengths, the things I can and qualities I have that I can use again. And in both, I experience the mercy, grace and love of God. It is like learning the advantages and disadvantages of things around me.

What matters for me is the journey and not the ending. Endings are just bonus where I can say “Yeheyyyy! Finally, tapos na.” or “Wow! It is awesome! I want to do it again!” And in every journey I am in naman there’s only one thing that is always being point up. It is GOD IS IN ME, GOD IS WITH ME & GOD IS FOR ME and there’s always a next chapter with Him. I was lost for a week but now I am found again. More grace more love.

When do I ever learn? I am always like this and makes me forget to enjoy things  at a time. I am greedy to have it all at once not realizing that one present a day is equal to unceasing happiness than getting and unwrapping the gifts at  one once and not having anything tomorrow. 

I know that I have to go back. I do not know where to find what I am losing because I don’t also know what specifically I have lost. But if there’s one thing I am sure of right now, it is the want to write the way I used to. To find the softness again. To go back.

Balik laban!

Life is a battle and a race. A battle with God’s enemy and a race where winner does not mean you are the fastest but the strongest and the one who really perseveres. Because the race I am talking about is not just an ordinary one, it is a race where  you are risking it all for your faith.

Right now, I feel better. I find comfort because of- JESUS ♥

My Prayer:

Remember your word to your servant, in which you have made me hope. This is my comfort in my affliction, that your promise gives me life. The insolent utterly deride me, but I do not turn away from your law. (Psalms 118:49-51, ESV)

I will not give up. Because You trust me in this. You want me in this. Paul found joy in suffering, I should have too. Because we both have You. In this moment where I gave up myself planning for my future, I can only say Your Name and nothing more. Lord, your grace is sufficient in my weakness.

Psalm 119:105

Image

You might be making decisions about your job, school, family/home, self or relationships, but you don’t have to make those decisions on your own. God is interested in every detail of your life, and He’s provided direction and guidance in His Word. God will lead you in a right path.

When life seems dark, or when you aren’t sure about which choice to make, turn on the light of God’s Word so you can see clearly what to do. As you meditate on His Word and confess His promises over your life, it chisels away the walls of doubt, fear and uncertainty that would try to block you or hold you back.

Remember, you can always trust God because He is good and He has plans to prosper and bless you when you follow His Word. The Bible tells us that the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn which shines brighter and brighter. That means His truth will guide and direct your heart in the direction of peace, blessing and increase in every area of your life!

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:

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. Tipong magpre-preach siya, laging nakahanda ang tenga mo kahit wala ka pang tulog. Tapos nung yumakap na nga ako nakapagsalita pa ko take note ng hindi pa utal-utal hehehe, Nung una kinakabahan pa ko yumakap pero ito na yun. this is it. Grab the opportunity sheimy! Ng makapagsalita na ako. di ko din nakalimutan yung sinabi niya sa akin : ” Always be reminded of Vision. For now, kay Lord ka na lang muna kahit wala ang family at mentees mo ” . 20 words + 1 comma yan, pero sobrang nakalift-up ng soul sakin ang mga salitang yan. Iba po talaga pag galing kay Tchr. Mitch, Like woooahhh!

May picture din kami ni Pastor Willy. hehe (2nd day na nga lang ito):

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!

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.

10 not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world.

* Kung may kwento ka, may kwenta ka!

  • #4th point: Consider our life empty without His presence

* Trials will show how we matured

Lets put your logic to the test 🙂

Professor : You are a Christian, aren’t you, son ?

Student : Yes, sir.

Professor: So, you believe in GOD ?

Student : Absolutely, sir.

Professor : Is GOD good ?

Student : Sure.

Professor: Is GOD all powerful ?

Student : Yes.

Professor: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn’t. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?

(Student was silent.)

Professor: You can’t answer, can you ? Let’s start again, young fella. Is GOD good?

Student : Yes.

Professor: Is satan good ?

Student : No.

Professor: Where does satan come from ?

Student : From … GOD …

Professor: That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?

Student : Yes.

Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn’t it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct?

Student : Yes.

Professor: So who created evil ?

(Student did not answer.)

Professor: Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don’t they?

Student : Yes, sir.

Professor: So, who created them ?

(Student had no answer.)

Professor: Science says you have 5 Senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son, have you ever seen GOD?

Student : No, sir.

Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your GOD?

Student : No , sir.

Professor: Have you ever felt your GOD, tasted your GOD, smelt your GOD? Have you ever had any sensory perception of GOD for that matter?

Student : No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.

Professor: Yet you still believe in Him?

Student : Yes.

Professor : According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?

Student : Nothing. I only have my faith.

Professor: Yes, faith. And that is the problem Science has.

Student : Professor, is there such a thing as heat?

Professor: Yes.

Student : And is there such a thing as cold?

Professor: Yes.

Student : No, sir. There isn’t.

(The lecture theater became very quiet with this turn of events.)

Student : Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don’t have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.

(There was pin-drop silence in the lecture theater.)

Student : What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?

Professor: Yes. What is night if there isn’t darkness?

Student : You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light. But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and its called darkness, isn’t it? In reality, darkness isn’t. If it is, well you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?

Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man ?

Student : Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.

Professor: Flawed ? Can you explain how?

Student : Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good GOD and a bad GOD. You are viewing the concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing.

Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?

Professor: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.

Student : Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?

(The Professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going.)

Student : Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor. Are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?

(The class was in uproar.)

Student : Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain?

(The class broke out into laughter. )

Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?

(The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable.)

Professor: I guess you’ll have to take them on faith, son.

Student : That is it sir … Exactly ! The link between man & GOD is FAITH. That is all that keeps things alive and moving.

P.S.

I believe you have enjoyed the conversation. And if so, you’ll probably want your friends / colleagues to enjoy the same, won’t you?

Forward this to increase their knowledge … or FAITH.

By the way, that student was EINSTEIN.

1 Corinthians 9:16

For if I preach the gospel, I have no reason for boasting, because I am compelled to do this. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel! (1 Corinthians 9:16)

Beware of refusing to hear the call of God. Everyone who is saved is called to testify to the fact of his salvation. That, however, is not the same as the call to preach, but is merely an illustration which can be used in preaching. In this verse, Paul was referring to the stinging pains produced in him by the compelling force of the call to preach the gospel. Never try to apply what Paul said regarding the call to preach to those souls who are being called to God for salvation. There is nothing easier than getting saved, because it is solely God’s sovereign work— “Look to Me, and be saved …” (Isaiah 45:22). Our Lord never requires the same conditions for discipleship that he requires for salvation. We are condemned to salvation through the Cross of Christ. But discipleship has an option with it-”If anyone …” (Luke 14:26).

Paul’s words have to do with our being made servants of Jesus Christ, and our permission is never asked as to what we will do or where we will go. God makes us as broken bread and poured-out wine to please Himself. To be “separated to the gospel” means being able to hear the call of God (Romans 1:1). Once someone begins to hear that call, a suffering worthy of the name of Christ is produced. Suddenly, every ambition, every desire of life, and every outlook is completely blotted out and extinguished. Only one thing remains— “… separated to the gospel… .” Woe be to the soul who tries to head in any other direction once that call has come to him. The Bible Training College exists so that each of you may know whether or not God has a man or woman here who truly cares about proclaiming His gospel and to see if God grips you for this purpose. Beware of competing calls once the call of God grips you.
