A beautiful blessing

When I asked God what I should do about telling the world of what He had just given me, this is His answer, "Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid." ~John 14:27

You wonder why this was His answer? Because I was hesitant at first. I've thought about having it privately but then it's a testimony of God's unfailing love and grace.

I never expected but He gave me something more. I never asked but He gave me more than my heart's desires. I prayed for a soul and He gave me a soulmate.

God is so faithful. It is true that if you trust and let God do the rest, expect the unexpected. A dream come true.

God answers all prayers. The answer is either 'yes', 'no' or 'wait'.

"But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently." ~Romans 8:25

Patience is all it takes. In all aspects of life, we are asked to be still.

"The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still."~Exodus 14:14
"Now then, stand still and see this great thing the LORD is about to do before your eyes!"~1 Samuel 12:16
"Be still, for this is a sacred day. Do not grieve."~Nehemiah 8:11
"Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes."~Psalm 37:7
"Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."~Psalm 46:10
"Be still before the LORD, all mankind, because he has roused himself from his holy dwelling."~Zechariah 2:13

Our GOD is bigger than anything in this world. He can do everything for you. Even the most impossible things. It is not the ability to wait but the attitude while you wait.

I do not even think I deserve anything much better than what I had before because of all the ungodly acts I have done in the past. It is true that God has us in the palm of His hands. If you fail, He will pull you up. Be faithful.

Isaiah 40:30-31
30Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;

31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

God has led me all my life (Genesis 48:15). I lived in sin. Transformed by God's grace. Multitude of blessings pouring down from heaven. There is one beautiful blessing that outstands all the blessings received. What is it?

How to give help

Tonight, I have realized the real meaning of help in God's eyes. We may not be able to be with someone or give something to help but our heart is burdened. How can we help?

You might begin to wonder why I'm tackling this topic. Well, I have been burdened with helping others. But then, at this time, I know I can't help coz I am not yet rich. I do not even have money at the moment. Amazingly, when God knows you opened your heart to Him, He makes a way. Not only one way but too many ways. Just like how the song goes, "He works in ways you cannot see, He will make a way for me." One day, my aunt asked me to join a charity pageant. Guess where the proceeds will go? To poor kids who need medical and dental check-ups. Also, my youths and I once opened a project at the school where I'm working at. I didn't spend anything for that project. Amazingly, God opened a door for us to help the orphans. Students were very happy to donate clothes, toys and other stuffs for the kids at the orphanage. Awesome, huh?

Want to help others without spending any of your money? PRAY! That's the only but effective help you can offer if you do not have anything to give. If you feel like you cannot do anything at all, just pray. God will do the rest for you. He will never let you down. God is so good that He cannot ever disappoint a heart that hungers and thirsts for Him. Never stop praying. Not only for yourself but also for others. You never know who needs it. Someone out there has more problems than you. Pray Until Something Happens (P.U.S.H.) GOD is on our side! He loves you today til eternity! May God pour out His blessings upon you more everyday!

God heals in Jesus' Name!

I have to testify again. Too many testimonies of healing. I've been having that tummy pain every once in a while and my feces changed color. I've had one special guy pray for me for one whole day. I've asked one youth to pray for me too. My mom prayed for me too. Of course, I prayed for myself. The mighty name of Jesus heals. Before I visited the doctor, we all prayed very much. After the visit, everything was ok. Feces' color was back to normal. No more tummy pains. God is so faithful and good. ONLY BELIEVE.

Second, for so long I haven't had my rheumatism attack me. Last night, my right leg hurt a lot coz of rheumatism. All I can do is believe in the powerful name of our Jesus. The simplest prayer I've uttered, "Get out of my body now, IN JESUS' NAME!" The pain was gone within a second. OUR GOD IS AMAZING! ONLY BELIEVE! ALL THE GLORY GOES BACK TO OUR GOD ALONE!

God stands by His promises

Psalm 37:4
"Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart."

This is so true! God stood by this promise in my life. He is standing by it still. I am contented with every aspect of my life right now. Physically, emotionally, socially, mentally and spiritually. But I know He is not yet done. He is still working in us. If you find yourself satisfied with where you are right now, then God will not give you more attention. Never be satisfied spiritually coz He will continue on sharpening us til Jesus comes back.

I am more than blessed for everything I have now. Family, friends, relatives and a special someone. My faith, my career and my life. Everything is just so perfect but I want more of God. He is more than enough. One of my closest friends said, "You are eventually getting the desires of your heart." I simply said, "God stands by His promises."

YOU make me beautiful

Before, I would care about what other people think of me. Someone made me view it the other way. Maybe that's why God blessed me with that special person. Though, God has already made me feel beautiful even before I met that person. I've just realized that I do not really have to put much effort on pleasing people coz it is enough that God thinks I am beautiful. I do not need anyone to tell me how pretty I am. What really matters is that God views me as His very beautiful princess. A word that outstands every good description. Beautiful. I have never felt this contentment before but it's so beautiful like our BEAUTIFUL GOD!

Though, God also gave me people who appreciate that beauty. Thank you to all the special people in my life who thinks I'm beautiful. I want to let you know that you are very much appreciated and you are beautiful in my eyes whatever happens and whatever other people think of you. First of all, God sees you beautiful. That is really enough!

To my readers, hope you always feel beautiful in God's eyes. God bless you more everyday!

another testimony

I couldn't let this day pass without testifying God's goodness.

Well, this is gonna be short. Earlier this morning, i wasn't feeling too good already coz of my tummy. An unusual pain that I haven't felt before. So i went back to sleep. I woke up at around 10:25am. So my tummy pain got worse. Something i haven't felt before. The pain weakened me so much. I can barely breathe and move. It gave me cold shivers on a very hot morning. Cold sweat and all that. I was thinking of dying and maybe going to the doctor then something struck me. Our GREAT HEALER wants me to pray. I remembered Jesus. I remembered how powerful is His Name. The NAME above all names. The NAME above all sicknesses and pain. I prayed a simple prayer. With so many "In Jesus' Name" in it. I felt compelled to stand up. Claim the healing. Just like the weak people that Jesus healed in the Bible. He would instruct them to stand up. I stood up and amazingly, it's all gone. I can only glorify MY FATHER IN HEAVEN! We can always go to the doctor but consult THE GREATEST HEALER first. He will never let you down. ONLY BELIEVE. Thank you Jesus for the healing power.
