Stay Alert and Grounded.

“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong” 1 Corinthians 16:13, NIV.

As you grow and become stronger in your faith walk, you will start to take over territory that the enemy has held for way too long! He doesn’t want you to make any advancements, and so he will do whatever he can to steal, kill and destroy any progress you make! He’ll do it by whispering lies into your spiritual ears to try and get you to quit the journey. Or he’ll attack in one way or another. He’ll even use people to push your buttons so that you fall into frustration or discouragement. Those are just a few of his tricks. So watch out for them, and if you sense he’s trying to mess you up, then draw even closer to Jesus. Jesus is your protection and your power. The enemy can’t be in the same place with your Lord. Use your weapons of God’s Word. Take your authority in Christ and order that defeated enemy back to his pit and out of your life.

There will be forces that will want to take you off the course and detour you. But God has a destination for you. He wants to lead you, direct you and reveal His truths to you, but to receive what He has; you need to stay on the path, walking forward with Him one step at a time.Take His hand and let Him lead you, and leave all the forces that are trying to hinder you behind. When you walk hand in hand with Jesus, those hindrances will weaken and become tiny objects in your rear-view mirror. Greater is the One within you, than the one who is coming against you.

Don’t give in and don’t give up. Nothing worth having is going to come without a fight. Maybe you’re fighting for your health, for your finances, for your spouse, for your kids, etc. It sure is easier to give up, but is it worth it? No, it’s not! Staying on the narrow road is worth it, and only when you get to the very end will you appreciate it’s worthiness.

Prayer: King Jesus, I ask that You intercede for me today and that You keep me guarded, firm and courageous. Renew my strength and keep me determined to stand on the rock of Your Word all the days of my life. Amen!

If He called you, He is sure of it.

“Who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began” 2 Timothy 1:9, NKJV.

One day a friend came to me and said, “You need to start a daily devotional”. To say I was hesitant is an understatement. As a matter of fact, I laughed and said, “No one reads devotionals these days.” But lo and behold, I began to pray and God began to deal with my heart about writing a devotional for women. He gave me the name, the look, the message, and I started the very next day. The response was almost instant and we give God the glory!

So many times we think, “Lord, are You sure this is what You want me to do?” “Are you sure people will be blessed by this?” “Are You sure You called the right persont?” We question His choosing, we question His assignment, not understanding His sovereignty and wisdom. If He called you, He’s sure. If He gave you a purpose, He’s sure. “I am sure.” God says, “I am sure about many things regarding you. I am sure about My purpose and plan for your life. I am sure about My divine power to see you to the end of it. I am sure about you moving forward in it. I am sure of the fruit that will be produced from it. Yes, I am sure.” Be sure as He is sure.

There are several things you must know when you are seeking to fulfill God’s purpose for your life:

  • Understand your purpose will always agree with the Word of God
  • Know that if God called you to do anything, He will equip you with the wisdom, grace and heart to do it.
  • Understand that a God-given purpose won’t stop when you stop. It will continue because He’s at the helm
  • Pray about timing. If God can show you the “what”, He can show you the “when”
  • Pray for God to do the impossible, then go and do the impossible through Him

Prayer: Yes God. I humble Myself under Your mighty hand. Thank You for the purpose and calling You have given me. You have ordered my steps right. And even when I don’t understand fully, help me continue to trust and obey Your leading. Help me to be confident and sure. I receive Your grace to do what You’ve called me to do. Help me fulfill every detail of Your purpose for my life. Be glorified in me. In Jesus name, Amen.

LOOK. STAY. SHARE.

I don’t know if my friends would know that I’m not okay, when in fact, I am really not.

It took weeks for me to blog about this one because I have to process it in my heart and mind.

Yes, I was over with our Mission Volunteer phase 1 training. But before my interview, I was really finding and seeking for clear answers from the Lord.

After months of discerning, I still can’t get what God’s answers to me, what He wants me to do.

While waiting for my turn, I pray harder, it was 8:00 and I still haven’t eaten my dinner, but instead of feeding my hungry stomach, I was led to Fullybooked forbunknown reasons.

Then for a moment, I knew the reason. Of all the books in the Biblical session, this book was the only one open for reading, all about DISCERNMENT.

When I read it, I think I saw myself in the character.

His story was abiut being a missionary, he discerned, and he believed God put him to the mission for the poor, but after months, he knew he was not called there. He’s a rich one, he didn’t found comfort in the poor place, he can’t stand not having a hot shower, soft bed, delicious food, he can’t, despite of the joy in mission.

For all he know, he was not called to be there, the joy wasn’t there, so he went home for a short break, and as he pray in the chapel, a girl approached him, and invited him for a mission for the disabled. By that moment, he found joy, he stayed, and shared what God has imparted in him.

The moment I was reading it, I saw a clear message from him, that I believed, God wants me to do in my situation.

LOOK. STAY. SHARE.

I am lost, with the religion I have. I am not a pure Catholic, but I am entering a Catholic mission, which is a total misleading. With my 7 years of serving our community, I didn’t embrace all of it. I was raised as an Aglipayan and believed in Christian beliefs because of my elementary school.

I was reminded by that story, I shouldn’t force myself when I am not really called there, but I should try because maybe, my heart was there.

LOOK for yourself; STAY with the Lord; and SHARE it to others.

I won’t be selfish, but right now, I felt like I don’t belong in this community. To the fact that no one ever asked me “Kamusta ka na?” And no one ever said, “Miss ka na namin, Ara”.

Looking for myself and standing up for my belief is what I wanted now.
And I am blogging this though no one cares because exactly, no one cares, tgis is the only output I could have.
