An Abundant Life

Do you want to see beautiful changes in your life? Do you want to witness the impossible to happen? Get out of your comfort zone! Follow GOD today and forever.

It takes humility and GOD's Wisdom to figure out what I'm saying.

As what JESUS CHRIST said...

John 10:10 (NIV)
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

John 10:10 (KJV)
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Yesterday, as I've posted the other day, I went to Manila with my friend, Julie Anne, for more than 10 years now. All expenses paid. She asked me to accompany her to inquire for a student visa. We were able to share things that happened and are happening in our lives. We walked a lot because we looked for the company. Funny. We were so tired. When lunch time came, we ate a few of my favorite foods in the world. hehehe! When you are very tired physically, you learn to appreciate the value of food. We went to eat at McDonald's. We ordered chicken with rice and gravy, iced tea, Coke for her and we both had caramel sundae. Yum!!! We enjoyed each piece that went in our mouths. My sister and our common friend met with us to watch a movie. Free tickets!!! The tickets were provided by my sister. We watched "17 again" because they chose it. hehehe! It's a nice movie with a lesson. It also has comedy in it. After the movie, my sister and I ate ice cream. Our friends didn't want to eat. My favorite ice cream flavor...vanilla!!! I enjoyed it. I was too happy to not enjoy it. I was thinking of Cody. His favorite flavor, too. After that, Julie Anne and I went to the bus terminal to go back home. It was a long and tiring ride. It was a good one though coz I enjoyed the whole day. Before the day started, I already begun thinking that it is going to be a great day and I refused to feel anything that will ruin it. When we stopped over for food along the way, I ate one of my favorite foods again, pork barbecue and rice. It surely was a great day! Greater than I've expected.

I arrived at around 10:30 in the evening. Cody and I chatted at 11:00. I was amazed. Cody is becoming a very beautiful person. A better one. I won't share details. hehehe! It's personal but what I'm very thankful for is that we're both growing together as an individual and as a couple. We will celebrate our first year anniversary tomorrow. Yay! ALL FOR AND FROM GOD!

I woke up this morning with a stiffed neck. Something was battling in me - to put menthol plasters on it or to have faith as what I've used to do before. Eversince I've been transformed, I started believing that GOD is really our Healer. I started acting on my faith, not just say it. I've proved HIS power plenty of times. I told Cody about the stiffed neck and told him that I am going to put plasters on it. He disagreed. He encouraged me to use my faith. I did. After a few minutes, bye bye stiffed neck! So amazing. GOD IS AMAZING!

I believe I already have my "Promised Land" and I am using my faith to believe that fact. I claim Victory in every aspect of my life. IT IS ALL GOD! There is nothing impossible with HIM. JESUS CHRIST died for me (for you) to have an ABUNDANT LIFE!!!


Some see a Teacher
Standing on a hill
Speaking words of wisdom
Some see a Healer
Reaching out His hand
To give sight to a blind man
Some see a Dreamer
Wasting His life
On what can never be
Some see a fool
Dying for His dreams

But I see love (I see love)
I see love (I see love)
Light of heaven breaking through
Well I see grace (I see grace)
I see God's face (I See Gods face)
Shining pure and perfect love
When I see You
I see Love

Some see a prisoner
Alone before His judge
With no one to defend Him
Some see a victim
Beaten and abused
With all the world against Him
Some see a martyr
Carrying His cross
For what He believes
Some see a Hero
Who set His people free

But I see love (I see love)
I see love (I see love)
Light of heaven breaking through
Well I see grace (I see grace)
I see God's face (I See Gods face)
Shining pure and perfect love
When I see You

With Your last breath
I see love
Through Your death
I see love
I see peace in the eyes of the King
I see hope in Your suffering (I see love)
I see a calm in the center of the storm
I see a Saviour

I see love
I see love
Light of heaven breaking through (heaven breaking through)
I see grace
I see God's face
Shining pure and perfect love
When I see You
I see love
When I see You
I see heaven breaking through
See Gods face
Shining pure and perfect love
When I see You
When I see You
When I see You
I see love
I see love
When I see
Some see Him walking from an empty grave

Keep believing. Keep following. Keep obeying. KEEP ALL OF IT FOR JESUS CHRIST!
Even if others are not,
Even if others will not,
Even if others cannot.



Make an impact. Make a difference. Make a ripple. Tip the scale. Be a blessing. Be different.


When you feel GOD's love, OVERFLOW!
