Ultimate plan of God

Do you love God only when you’re happy?

Or did you get mad at Him when things got tough??

Many times in life we get so confident, we start to depend on our own strength.
But as we walk, we realize that the path we chose won’t give us anything..

And we realize we can’t do without God.

Then at one point, we can’t walk anymore and we ask ourselves…
“Am I still worthy?” “Is God mad at me?” “If I go back, will He accept me?”
If this is you then turn around, and you will see God is waiting for you with open arms…

He has been and always will be with you whether you realize it or not. No matter how far you leave Him, He never leaves you. No matter who you are, or what you’ve done, He loves each and every one of you.

Movie Review: Do you believe?

Jesus’ heartbeat is always the same before, today and tomorrow and that is to heal the sick, to feed the hungry, to save the lost, to shelter the homeless and to be with His children in the place called “home”.

We have different struggles, but God knows that.
He knows everything about us. He knows we needed Him, all we need is to ask. He listens. He cares. He loves. That is why Jesus died on the cross to save us.

To God be the glory!

Rhema Word for today: Psalm 139

God’s Perfect Knowledge of Man

1 O LORD, You have searched me and known me.
2 You know my sitting down and my rising up;
You understand my thought afar off.
3 You comprehend my path and my lying down,
And are acquainted with all my ways.
4 For there is not a word on my tongue,
But behold, O LORD, You know it altogether.
5 You have hedged me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is high, I cannot attain it.
7 Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
8 If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
9 If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall[a] on me,”
Even the night shall be light about me;
12 Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You,
But the night shines as the day;
The darkness and the light are both alike to You.
13 For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;[b]
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.
17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How great is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand;
When I awake, I am still with You.
19 Oh, that You would slay the wicked, O God!
Depart from me, therefore, you bloodthirsty men.
20 For they speak against You wickedly;
Your enemies take Your name in vain.[c]
21 Do I not hate them, O LORD, who hate You?
And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?
22 I hate them with perfect hatred;
I count them my enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;
Try me, and know my anxieties;
24 And see if there is any wicked way in me,
And lead me in the way everlasting.

To God be the glory!

THE DOCTOR IS OUT

Today, I’m thanking God for giving me a new exciting day. Things may not come up as I expected or planned it to be, but it turned out so wonderful more than I expected.

Since childhood, I had the feeling of wanting to get lost in the place new, to the unknown. That’s what youth thinks out of curiosity, the part of growing, but at least not to the way of destruction. There is a healthy experiment that God leaves us as He does not create us as robots or puppets without the will to choose what we wanted, but of course with His supervision as a parent is to His child.

So, whenever I feel I needed to search something about myself or for something, to ponder, I usually ride a public vehicle say a bus, van, jeepney, or any sorts of as long as it could take me anywhere. The fact is, I wanted to see the greeneries, waterways, mountains, nature to make my soul find rest. Where you there?

Then, after realizing, oh this is quite far enough, I stopped and went back. Just like in the movie Forrest Gump where he run and run and run without a goal, no aim at all, and when he’s asked why he run he said, “just as long as I could.” Until he stopped and returned.

Anything, even a little or senseless may it sound for others do have significant value for us. Our life-stories is already written by God before we were born.

So, what’s got into me today?

I intended to attend a three-day Women’s Conference as invited by our pastor which I thought will start today. So, I set my alarmed clock last night. Funny that my cat woke me up 5 minutes before it rang, an hour after, I sprinted to the conference venue. But guess what, I was told by the guard it will start tomorrow. I wanted to confirm it myself so I checked the ad posted on the wall, it is confirmed tomorrow not today! Here’s the pic.

“Okay, it’s not my loss waking up early since I could go to my dentist instead for my monthly appointment,” I told myself. When I arrived at the clinic, guess what, “THE DOCTOR IS OUT”. The secretary told me he’s out for something more important.

“Alright, then this is the perfect time to go home…as I was crossing the road, I stopped for a while to capture a new constructed high-rise building in my city. Here’s the pic.

As I was walking on the not-so-busy-street, I decided why not walk my way home. But, guess what, at the end of the block, I got tired so I said, “I need to ride a tricycle.” Unfortunately, no one seemed to let me in. So I turned around and decided to go to the mall to look for a DVD player and speaker that I really plan on buying at the end of this month. I said, “Oh now is the perfect time, God really willed it.” I ride on a jeepney. I told the driver to drop me at SM Lanang. I prefer farther so I can, you know, enjoy the ride, to ponder, thinking I am missing a lot of air, the outside world because I’m working every day until midnight and woke up late as late as 12 noon. But guess what, I have ridden the wrong vehicle. It turned the other way. I thought to myself, “Yeah this is what you want right, to get lost or reach places you haven’t been?” As the vehicle continue to move on, I felt excited, knowing that this day is unplanned which make me feel thrilled a bit.

The driver realized that, asked me, “Where are you really heading?” I said, “Just go on, I’ll tell you where.” It gets farther and farther. New place. Desire met. Then, I said, “Stopped.” I pretended to drop by a fast-food restaurant. Went inside to refresh myself since it’s getting hotter outside.

After that, I went out, decided to go back (not home since I’m planning to still look for DVD player and speaker in the nearest mall, at least nearest to my workplace. I found a jeepney waiting for passengers. I got in. At least, my story in that ride didn’t end usual, since I met two old women as old as 79 and 60. They melt my heart seeing at the other one with a walking stick, missing teeth and hunch back, but still trying to work for a living, they even tried to sell us their peanut butter telling at least for their transpo fare. They are simple people, yet they are happy and could give a big smile. I realized that inside the jeepney were different people of different walks of life—some may be rich, some poor and some are really-really poor.

I been working every day to make a living, sometimes I’m stressed out due to workloads. But there are some who are, who don’t even have enough. I am thankful that God is taking care of us all. He is the source of everything. . . of all our needs.

Eventually, I reached the mall and climbed the overpass where I saw beggars. It melts my heart again. I gave some amount and talked to some of them. I realized that they don’t only need our charity, but our HEARTS. It’s so easy to give and walk away. But, to stop and listen to them, is scant, even impossible to do since we are all so busy. Everyone needs to be accepted, to belong and to realize their life-purpose.

When I got inside the mall, I roamed and saw at a distant a carousel. Since childhood, I always wanted to ride a merry-go-round but haven’t had the chance. So, I drag my feet near to it, gazing at the children who are really having fun with the ride and smiled by that scenery. It made me so happy.

So, I’ll end up my today’s story here. How about you, what’s your story today?

God is awesome and unpredictable God. He teaches us lessons every day and He could even speaks to us in mysterious ways.

“Delight yourself in the Lord and He shall give you your heart’s desire.”

To God be the glory!

Movie Review: Love finds you in Charm

“Everyone said that they have faith in me to make the right choices. But what I really needed was faith in myself, faith that I would know the answers when they came. Sometimes God willing, we find our answers in another (people)…to someone who is the first person who we wanted to go to tell things. Someone who’s always interested in what we have to say. Someone who’s our best friend. And someone who loves you. This is where we belong.” -modern prodigal daughter Emma

from the Hallmark movie: Love Finds You in Charm.

REACT: As human, we always explore new things…go anywhere to find the answers to our questions. To succeed in our dreams, never stopping until we are satisfied. But at the end, we become frustrated and still dissatisfied because we tend to become self-centered neglecting Him who truly cares and loves us.

But in spite that we become faithless and went to the wrong direction, He remains faithful and merciful to pull us back to His loving arms just like how a prodigal son was welcomed back by his loving father. Thank you Lord God.

To God be the glory!

All you need is a broken heart

—this is when David received this remarkable revelation of the sacrifice God really wants: All you need is a broken heart!

Ultimately, it’s not the sight of an animal sacrifice that moves God to grant forgiveness and to receive David back into His embrace. It is David’s broken heart—the spirit that had grown tender enough to be pained by sin.

There’s no need to be embarrassed if you can’t bring God a jolly heart every time you feel the need to praise Him. There’s no shame in not being able to afford an expensive gift as though you could “buy God off” and purchase forgiveness.

Just bring Him your heart, broken though it may be. That’s what He has wanted all along.

#Praise_in_Prayer

“I give You my heart as Lord of my life, O God. Even when I am sorrowful…even when I am less than I want to be…I praise You as a God who accepts the open and honest heart over any material sacrifice I could bring. In the name of Christ my Savior, Amen.”
