A new day is beginning And all the birds were singing The sun was shining up in the sky Sometimes the world around me Is so awesome it astounds me It leaves me feeling mystified
Oh I just can't believe All the beauty I see It takes my breath away Sometimes I've gotta say
CHORUS You're my God What You've created So many miracles in every day You're my God It's so amazing It's so incredible I've gotta say You're my God
I can't even imagine How He made it happen To see the silver moon from afar It's almost unbelievable It's truely unconceivable To think of all the billions of stars
When I'm watching a rose How it naturally grows Just takes my breath away There's just one thing to say
Oh all the gifts You've given me Oh what You do's a mystery, just to be, Ya got me fallin' to my knees Oh I just can't believe
I just love this song so much! Well, I love all of the Christian songs in the world hehehe! But this one clearly speaks of my life with God. I lived in sin but because of God's love and grace, I was given a new beginning. A life that only sees beautiful days. Beautiful things. When you feel down, look at your nature. How wonderful and amazing is our GOD! Truly breathtaking. Everything that God created leaves us speechless all the time. He created everything with just His Voice but the most important creation, He spent so much time with using His Hands is man. You are the most beautiful creation. You and me.
I thank God so much for so many miracles in my life everyday. When you are in God's Palm, you will surely experience all the beautiful things inspite of trials. Our GOD is so beautiful!
"No one can go back and make a brand new start. Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending. God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way."
"Disappointments are like road humps, they slow you down a bit but you enjoy the smooth road afterwards. Don't stay on the humps too long. Move on!"
"When something happens to you, good or bad, consider what it means. There's a purpose to life's events, to teach you how to laugh more or not to cry too hard."
"You can't make someone love you, all you can do is be someone who can be loved, the rest is up to the person to realize your worth."
"The measure of love is when you love without measure. In life, there are very rare chances that you'll meet the person you love and loves you in return. So once you have it, don't ever let go. The chance might never come your way again."
"It's better to lose your pride to the one you love, than to lose the one you love because of pride. We spend too much time looking for the right person to love or finding fault with those we already love, when instead we should be perfecting the love we give."
"When you truly care for someone, you don't look for faults, you don't look for answers, you don't look for mistakes. Instead, you fight the mistakes, you accept the faults, and you overlook the excuses."
"Never abandon an old friend. You will never find one who can take his place. Friendship is like wine, it gets better as it grows older."
Today, I went to the optical clinic. I've learned that there's a promo for the contact lenses that I wanted. Now, I have 2 pairs of contacts at a very low price that made me save 1000 pesos. To top it all off, there's free 5 pairs of disposable contact lenses. How great is our GOD!
The following verses are from my devotions today:
Psalm 147:12-14 12 Extol the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise your God, O Zion,
13 for he strengthens the bars of your gates and blesses your people within you.
14 He grants peace to your borders and satisfies you with the finest of wheat.
Surely, God grants me peace each time I ask for it. Of course, He also satisfies me with all my needs.
Psalm 149:4-5 4 For the LORD takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with salvation.
5 Let the saints rejoice in this honor and sing for joy on their beds.
The revelation for these verses are kept private between me and God. hehehe! Just wanted to share these beautiful verses.
Psalm 150:6 6 Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD.
Whatever comes our way, we should always PRAISE THE LORD!
My contact lenses have expired already. I told my mom about it a week ago since I don't have enough money (no money at all hahaha) to buy a new pair. God is good because til now I'm using them but no infections yet. He is protecting my eyes. I just waited and surrendered the issue to God. I didn't insist on asking my mom about new ones. A few minutes ago, my mom told me to buy a new pair with some of the money she had given me last week. GOD is so faithful. God provides for His servants..His friends..His children! God has granted me a forgiving heart and wisdom that I know I will never get from anyone because apart from GOD, I am nothing!
The image is my old contacts. I will post pics of the new pair soon. hahaha!
Warning: Please do not use expired contact lenses.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."
I've been focused lately on what God truly wants me to need and focus on. I've had so many revelations. I'll share everything. Lately, I've learned with the people around me that they tend to create their own language. Create their own world and culture. Their own translation of Christianity. Too carnal. Too ungodly. Too hypocritical. They preach God's Word in their own language but we have to stick to the Truth. We have to model the Truth. I've always been saying, "act on your faith." Faith without deeds is useless (James 2:14-26). Christianity should be seen through our words and actions. Meekness. Gentleness. Wisdom. Love.
Colossians 3:17 (NIV) "Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus..."
Colossians 3:17 (NLT) "And whatever you do or say, do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus..."
We, Christians, are representing Jesus Christ so we MUST be able to show and prove that we can do every command written in the Holy Bible.
"When we represent Him to other people in word and deed, they should see love, in the name of Christ." ~Cindy Hess Kasper
"Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." ~Psalm 37:4
One of my favorite verses that really took a theme in my life. I asked but then He gave me more than I've asked for. I've realized it has been my biggest dream. He is my heart's desire. My dream come true. In every aspect. In every bit of him. My Cody.
Now, now, you might tell me that my heart's desire should be God. Just like what my Cody always say, it's a given and God knows our hearts' desires. We desire God first then He gives us a bonus. My big bonus is Cody. My lover, my best friend, my partner. He is always there through thick and thin. I can say now that he is really my partner.
To my everdearest honey Cody, I LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH! HAPPY 3RD MONTHSARY, my darling!
ALL THE GLORY IN THIS RELATIONSHIP BELONGS TO GOD ALONE!!!
Ephesians 2:2 "...in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient."
3.) Throne of GOD
This is such a wonderful revelation about prayer.
When we pray from where we are, the demons will try to hinder it from reaching God (3rd heaven). If we NEVER STOP PRAYING, our prayers will push right through those demons and reach our God. Of course, this is a test of faith and perseverance. Never cease praying. I kind of had the theory that this is where they got the phrase "Pray Until Something Happens (P.U.S.H.)"
This is not to shake any doctrine or belief. This is just simply to encourage every reader to NEVER STOP PRAYING!
Song of Solomon 2:1 Beloved I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys.
I desire to leave an expression like this. Above all trials, I love to show beauty...the beauty of the LORD!
Song of Solomon 2:2 Lover Like a lily among thorns is my darling among the maidens.
I desire my lover, my best friend, my partner to speak of me this way. A beautiful lily who exudes beauty, gentleness and love to everyone in this world of trials. A darling who is very unique to my lover's eyes. Thank you, Cody, for making me feel this way and for unfailingly showing my significance in our world.
Most of all, I desire GOD to crown me with the crown of eternal life someday saying, "Well done, good and faithful servant."
I desire that you desire this too. Please desire and seek GOD first. GOD completes us.
Be a lily of the valley. As the image shows, bending but not breaking...beautiful all the time!
ALL THE GLORY BELONGS TO OUR BEAUTIFUL GOD ALONE!!!
I should have done this last night but then I was exhausted from my trip. I was so excited to blog this as it will testify God's goodness and favor in my life. Now, I have regained all my strength coz of God's grace and power, I can blog it all out with all of my heart.
Leviticus 5:1 (NLT) “If you are called to testify about something you have seen or that you know about, it is sinful to refuse to testify, and you will be punished for your sin."
Acts 20:24 (NLT) "But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God."
Acts 20:24 (NIV) "However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace."
2 Timothy 1:7-10 "For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline. So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord, or ashamed of me his prisoner. But join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God, who has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel."
Testimony portion: First, I had my alarm synchronized to 2am coz I was gonna travel for Manila yesterday. I wasn't able hear the alarm. Must've been a deep sleep. Then I believe God woke me up at 3am. The usual time I wake up the past few Sundays. Of course, I was in a hurry coz I was alarmed of the time. Funny. I shouldn't be. But then again, the bus left at 4am. Late. So I arrived in Manila at 8am. I still need to travel to my culinary school for an hour. My classes start at 9am. Our chef told us we were going to have an examination. I wasn't able to review or even open my book. I just prayed for God's favor. I was 10 minutes late. Amazingly, we didn't have an exam coz we have a different chef. I was so happy. After my class at 6pm, I still have to go to my sister's apartment. I arrived at 7pm in her apartment. I was in a hurry to catch the bus home. The moment I arrived the bus terminal and boarded the bus, the bus departed after a few minutes. God is so good! I can only testify and glorify God's goodness in my life. He has changed me in so many ways. He has improved my character. He used people like my family, boyfriend and a few, close friends who all made me accountable for my actions. Special thanks to my mom and boyfriend who have always been there and watched me grow in character, rebuke me every time, appreciate my existence and love me unconditionally.
I have been blogging about LOVE, right? Why suicide now? Well, there's an obvious 'leading' from God. First, one of my friends talked about how people of the opposite sex would always want to commit suicide whenever they've started associating with her. Her name will remain anonymous all throughout this post. Second, I was browsing a friend's blogsite and I came across an interesting title..SUICIDE..truly, I was moved and burdened. I had to 'blog it out' <---new term hahaha!
A speaker once said in a seminar I've attended, "You can never share what you haven't experienced."
Now, you can never tell me that my posts are so false. hahaha! I only share what I've experienced. Been there, done that. God's grace is sufficient. Whenever I undergo trials, I already know there's a purpose that's why I am not afraid. God is everything I need. God has a purpose for all our trials. God is always faithful with the wisdom He has been giving us. I am not a born writer. Not even a skilled one. I never joined essay writing contests as much as my sisters did and do. I was never an Editorial-in-Chief in school papers. My sisters were. But, because of my love for God, my love for people and inspirations from friends and my ninang, I use what I have for writing. I am better in oral. hahaha! My ever supportive boyfriend even suggested that he would make a website for me..for God..no pictures, of course..hahaha! My very sweet boyfriend..ANYWAY, that's a pretty long intro right there hahaha! Let's proceed...
2 Corinthians 12:9 "My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness."
We have heard people say that we are not given problems we cannot bear. True.
People might tell me that I don't understand what they're going through. How hard life is now. How hard it is to trust others. How life is worthless or useless. These are all lies. Why? I've been there. I've been the suicidal type. I would tell some of the past bf's I've had that I would commit suicide if they leave me or something like I'd die for them. It is not to show my love for them. Well, I can't call it love. It is to threaten them. Remember that the Bible says, "Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth." (1 Corinthians 13:6) Why do I say evil? Suicide means self-murder. Murder means to deprive of life or to put to death. The only One who can take away our lives is the One who gave it. Who gave our lives? A Supernatural Being...GOD! Oh and I even prayed so many times for God to take away my life coz I did not want to live anymore. Whenever I lose someone in the past, I would think that life is nothing without him. But then I know now why God let me undergo those trials..to make me stronger, to write posts about all those things (hehehe), and to meet the love of my life, my ever loving best friend, my partner, and my boyfriend. I'll be calling him my husband soon. hahaha! If not for my past then I wouldn't have the best blessing now.
Ok let's go to a much deeper explanation...
Thinking about suicide is a lie. Thinking about life is not worth living is a lie. Why lies? Because God created us to delight in Him so He can give us our heart's desires. To depend on Him. But what do we do? We run away from Him and listen to other voices..voices of lies..voices of sins. Sin hinders blessings! Well, they say that whatever is prohibited makes you feel so good. Lie again. Whatever is right should make you feel good. Right in God's eyes.
John 8:44 "The devil...was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies."
Listen to that still small voice. That is GOD. How would you recognize? When there's peace. No doubt. No shame. No guilt. No pain. Read the Bible. Whatever is written in the Bible and you obey everything in It. God never lies.
Hebrews 16:18 "...it is impossible for God to lie..."
“Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.” ~Phil Donahue
You might tell me..no one loves you..no one cares for you..that if you die, no one would weep for you. There is One. He loves you so much that He gave His only Son to die for you..for me..for us! Suicide would make Him weep so much. More than any human could ever weep. Why? Because suicide would mean that HE would lose a soul forever. No more eternity with Him. We were created because God wants to be with us..to spend eternity with us. That's why He have set us high above other organisms.
Ponder on these verses...
Matthew 11:29-30 "Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
Psalm 34:18 "The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."
Romans 5:3 "We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance."
1 John 4:4 "The One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world."
You might tell me that it is so impossible to change. You cannot do it. Well, well, well..GOOD NEWS! You cannot do it..GOD CAN! It's impossible for you..NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD!
Luke 1:37 "For nothing is impossible with God.”
Luke 18:27 He replied, “What is impossible for people is possible with God.”
Mark 10:27 Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.”
Matthew 19:26 Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.”
Matthew 17:20 “You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.”
I've always believed that when something has been stated in the Bible too many times, it is VERY IMPORTANT. Well, all of God's Word is important. Try looking up. His ways and thoughts are higher than ours. Allow Him to move in your life. He knows what's best for us. God loves us..GOD LOVES YOU!
God's deliverance is awesome. God's love is amazing. God's grace is sufficient. You feel you have your life in God's hands...and boom!...it's PARADISE!
"...apart from Me you can do nothing." (John 15:5) ---HUMILITY
"If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow all His commands I give you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth." (Deutoronomy 28:1) ---OBEDIENCE
Two of the most important things we need to do to invite MORE blessings from GOD. First, humble yourself to God that you are a sinner. Second, repent (turn away from wicked, past ways) and FULLY OBEY. Tried and tested. Proven effective.
REMEMBER: SIN hinders BLESSINGS!
When you have accepted JESUS in your heart fully, He will always be faithful to you. You will be under His special favor.
"Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win FAVOR and a good name in the sight of God and man." ~Proverbs 3:3-4
"Whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men." ~Colossians 3:23
"...A scroll of REMEMBRANCE was written in His presence concerning those who feared the LORD and honored His name." ~Malachi 3:16
God will remember you if you fear Him and honor Him. He will remember you even if you slept over prayer or forgot to read the Bible. Admit your mistakes and have a pure heart before God. Let Him cleanse you.
SPECIAL FAVOR - whether you ask in prayer or not, He will grant every desire you have.
Testimony portion: I love this portion! hahaha! Why? This is the portion wherein I can only boast of God's love, goodness, faithfulness, grace, favor and glory in my life. Last week, my aunt was so burdened with my hair coz its kind of unruly already. hahaha! I am planning to get it done by September but then she told me to get my hair trimmed. She gave me money. God takes care of His princesses not only spiritually but also physically! Second, I was trying to find a headset that I really like for my computer for the longest time..hehehe! Then, this week, one of my friends (a new Christian) wholeheartedly gave me one. One of my friends' brother gave me one too. So it's flooding with headsets! hahaha! Free headsets! Third, yesterday, I've eaten a lot. I believe God rewards sacrifices (sorry I won't go into detail). My mom fed me a lot yesterday then after the youth fellowship at church around 7pm, one of my friends whom I invited took me out to dinner. God provides! God knows your needs even if you don't tell him. I can't pass a week without any testimony for God's glory. God's special favor remains. Do you want it too? I challenge you to give it all to God. He will never fail you. And of course, the best blessing I've received is my boyfriend. hehehe! I am so inlove with him! I am so blessed for he is after God's heart and that alone makes him so different and unique. Also, God has been faithful in giving me trials but His grace never fails to suffice me and help me overcome all of them with God's courage and strength. Apart from Him, I am nothing!
Special thanks to: Tita Shirley Casil, Karen Dimayuga, Glen Ramos and Julie Ann Tamayo
God has touched you and used you to bless me. God bless you always! All the GLORY belongs to GOD alone!!!
1 John 4:1 "Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world."
I have received an email about a said prophet in our world today. The email even asked me to pass it onto others. What for? It contained info about him. How he had prophesied about all the natural disasters that happened. A true prophet never claims to be one. A true prophet is full of humility.
Proverbs 22:4 "True humility and fear of the Lord lead to riches, honor, and long life."
God will exalt a person who humbles himself. Humility in every aspect of his life. Why did Satan fall from heaven? It is because of pride. Every bit of any kind of pride not just about asking forgiveness. Also, such as, wanting to be recognized. Wanting to have a spotlight in the world. There are too many forms of pride. False humility is one. Others tend to praise themselves but then they say it is from God. If it is from God then why exalt themselves? Why not wait for others to give the praise and just keep it? Let us examine ourselves. Do we exercise humility at all times? We do not want to be like Satan and his companions, right? We still have the chance to change. God gave us that great opportunity. Now is the time. Pray for deliverance. He is our Deliverer. If you want to be a blessing, you got to change for the better.
Zephaniah 2:3 "Seek the LORD, all you humble of the land, you who do what He commands. Seek righteousness, seek humility; perhaps you will be sheltered on the day of the LORD's anger."
Matthew 23:12 "For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted."
The truth may hurt but the truth will set you free. When you accept God's Will in your life, you should be prepared to hear things you don't want but you sincerely need.
You will enjoy the new insights that Rick Warren has, with his wife now having cancer and him having 'wealth' from the book sales. This is an absolutely incredible short interview with Rick Warren.
'Purpose Driven Life ' author and pastor of Saddleback Church in California
In the interview by Paul Bradshaw with Rick Warren, Rick said:
People ask me, What is the purpose of life? And I respond: In a nutshell, life is preparation for eternity. We were not made to last forever, and God wants us to be with Him in Heaven.
One day my heart is going to stop, and that will be the end of my body-- but not the end of me.
I may live 60 to 100 years on earth, but I am going to spend trillions of years in eternity. This is the warm-up act - the dress rehearsal.. God wants us to practice on earth what we will do forever in eternity.
We were made by God and for God, and until you figure that out, life isn't going to make sense.
Life is a series of problems: Either you are in one now, you're just coming out of one, or you're getting ready to go into another one.
The reason for this is that God is more interested in your character than your comfort.
God is more interested in making your life holy than He is in making your life happy.
We can be reasonably happy here on earth, but that's not the goal of life. The goal is to grow in character, in Christ likeness.
This past year has been the greatest year of my life but also the toughest, with my wife, Kay, getting cancer.
I used to think that life was hills and valleys - you go through a dark time, then you go to the mountaintop, back and forth.. I don't believe that anymore.
Rather than life being hills and valleys, I believe that it's kind of like two rails on a railroad track, and at all times you have something good and something bad in your life.
No matter how good things are in your life, there is always something bad that needs to be worked on.
And no matter how bad things are in your life, there is always something good you can thank God for.
You can focus on your purposes, or you can focus on your problems.
If you focus on your problems, you're going into self-centeredness,'which is my problem, my issues, my pain.' But one of the easiest ways to get rid of pain is to get your focus off yourself and onto God and others.
We discovered quickly that in spite of the prayers of hundreds of thousands of people, God was not going to heal Kay or make it easy for her.
It has been very difficult for her, and yet God has strengthened her character, given her a ministry of helping other people, given her a testimony, drawn her closer to Him and to people.
You have to learn to deal with both the good and the bad of life.
Actually, sometimes learning to deal with the good is harder. For instance, this past year, all of a sudden, when the book sold 15 million copies, it made me instantly very wealthy.
It also brought a lot of notoriety that I had never had to deal with before. I don't think God gives you money or notoriety for your own ego or for you to live a life of ease.
So I began to ask God what He wanted me to do with this money, notoriety and influence. He gave me two different passages that helped me decide what to do, II Corinthians 9 and Psalm 72
First, in spite of all the money coming in, we would not change our lifestyle one bit. We made no major purchases. Second, about midway through last year, I stopped taking a salary from the church.
Third, we set up foundations to fund an initiative we call The Peace Plan to plant churches, equip leaders, assist the poor, care for the sick, and educate the next generation.
Fourth, I added up all that the chu rch had paid me in the 24 years since I started the church, and I gave it all back. It was liberating to be able to serve God for free.
We need to ask ourselves: Am I going to live for possessions? Popularity?
Am I going to be driven by pressures? Guilt? Bitterness? Materialism? Or am I going to be driven by God's purposes (for my life)?
When I get up in the morning, I sit on the side of my bed and say, God, if I don't get anything else done today, I want to know You more and love You better. God didn't put me on earth just to fulfill a to-do list. He's more interested in what I am than what I do. That's why we're called human beings, not human doings.
Happy moments, PRAISE GOD. Difficult moments, SEEK GOD. Quiet moments, WORSHIP GOD. Painful moments, TRUST GOD. Every moment, THANK GOD. God's Blessings on you today.
I always remember what my youth pastor once said, "You know if that person is the one if there's peace."
Love rejoices with the truth. If it abides by God's rules then it is a peaceful and beautiful relationship.
Peace is when you know you can be yourself without hassles and worries. Without thinking how the other person will react. You won't worry coz you know he/she will accept you no matter what. Peace is when you feel it's not a contest with other people to win his/her heart. Peace is when you can trust God even if he/she is apart from you. Peace is when you can surrender to God your future spouse knowing that He'll give you the best. Peace is being your whole self and knowing that he/she is willing to grow with you. Peace is when you can show the side of you that is not pleasing but knowing that he/she won't leave you but let you grow spiritually and emotionally. Peace is when you can worship God and pray together. Peace is when there is no guilt, no shame and no restrictions coz you know it is God's blessing to you. Peace is when you never feel worthless with him/her. Peace is when he/she thinks he/she deserves you more than anything else in the world. Peace is when you are contented in God. Peace is when he is willing to give you all the alone time with God. Peace is when you can have God as the center of your relationship.
By God's amazing grace, I am what I am today. I have what I have today. I am blessed with a wonderful boyfriend and God's peace. I am blessed with a peaceful and joyful relationship with one of God's beautiful creations.
1.) Seek God first. Matthew 6:33 (NLT) "Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need."
2.) Delight in God first. Psalm 37:4 (NIV) "Delight yourself in the LORD and He will give you the desires of your heart."
3.) Trust God first. Mark 11:24 (NIV) "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours."
4.) Surrender to God first. Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV) "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
5.) Ask for God's will above all. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV) "Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
Proverbs 19:21 "Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails."
Romans 12:1-2 (NIV) "Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."
May you all have a peaceful lovelife! God loves you! I declare God's peace in your life.
You're probably wondering what GPT and GPW mean. God's Perfect Timing and God's Perfect Will. I've known these words for a long time now but then it has really occurred to me recently how important it is to learn what they really mean and how/when do they happen.
For my lovelife, God's revelations flooded. I surrendered my lovelife to God and in His perfect timing, He gave me a beautiful blessing.
After I was transformed, I struggled in winning souls. I depended on what I can do. I have learned that God has His perfect timing. No matter what you do. All you can do is share and be there for others. Ask for a heart for people. Not just commitment but LOVE. Best of all, surrender everything to Him.
God's Perfect Will...it was stated in the Bible that God can choose whatever He can do with you. He chose the pharaoh who imprisoned the Israelites. He chose to harden his heart for the Israelites. He chose Moses, a man who complained a lot, to lead His people. He chose the strong man to contradict and the weak man to lead. How awesome is His will, huh? Amazingly profound!
Testimony: I have been trying to win 3 of my closest friends. They've been my friends for 10-12 years now. I never want to go to heaven without them. Well, the worst is that, we can be in heaven and we can actually see the souls burning in hell. How painful would that be to see your loved ones there? Anyway, one of them (friend #1) contacted me to meet up with me. We almost didn't meet coz of my job but then I left it for the sake of that one soul. I could discern that God has asked me to come back to my province and tip the scale. When we met, she told me that she's going to leave for Manila the next day. I told myself, "How amazing it is to listen to that still small voice and obey." She was so willing to accept Christ, be delivered and be discipled. I won't share all the details as they are very confidential. She accepted Christ that afternoon. God won her right then and there! She is God's now. I was and still am overwhelmed with joy! Now, one of them again (friend #2) has been confiding in me. She has been listening to my counsels. Counsels all from the Bible. Scripture verses. Whatever we do and say, we should always direct people to the spiritual..to God's Word..to GOD! Also, we should never worry coz God has His own perfect timing and will. We can always worry and get stressed but God knows everything. God knows what to do. He has a purpose for everything. I have been worrying about these souls but then God let me learn that He can do miracles. He can move mountains. Like what He did to my life. Act on your faith. Faith without deeds is useless. (James 2:14-26)
"Faith can move mountains, but don't be surprised if God hands you a shovel." ~Author Unknown
P.U.S.H. (Pray Until Something Happens)
Learn to wait patiently and silently. God be with you always!!!
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails..."

GOD is our Great Healer
This blogsite is for God's glory, goodness and faithfulness. Testimonies. Special favors. God-given lessons learned. This is GOD's blog.
Maybe some of you are wondering about my URL. Maybe some are not. hehehe! Well, I believe new guests are the ones wondering. Maybe. hehehe!
I told my whole life story to a former friend who is a pastor and he called me "GOD's little miracle girl" so since then, I took it as my screen name. I only want to glorify GOD so I don't share my name in the internet. I thought it was neat so I used it but removed the "little" in there. hehehe! Since this blog is not about me, I changed my header title from "GOD's little miracle girl" to "GOD is our First Love" and decided to stick with the URL since many friends have memorized it already.
Okay...so there...one of your questions answered...hehehe!

Before you call, GOD will answer (Discerned Testimonial Favor)
(June 17, 2009) I got worried with my financial budget. I'm trying to fix all my finances. I am so grateful when my dear Cody volunteered to finance my other phone. I am trying to be very responsible with money and GOD provided a soul to help with GOD's text ministry. When it is in HIS plan, HE certainly has provided already. Yay! GOD IS SO GREAT! HOW GOOD IT IS TO BE LOVED BY GOD!
