All of us....

I just would like share this to you…. I do believe that our God who is so gracious to us has given us a sound judgement about the things around us.
Will we just ponder upon this article.

"Kathryn Kuhlman, a famous minister who shared the Lord’s love and power to an estimated 100,000,000 people during her 50-year ministry, died February 20, 1976 with an estate worth $2,267,500, which is equivalent to $6,000,000 in 2006. The money was not left to her ministry but to her friends. “All over the nation front-page newspaper stories read: Kathryn Kuhlman, the evangelist, who solicited millions of dollars in contributions from her followers, has left none of her estate to her foundation or the church.” Kathryn Kuhlman is an example of a multi-Millionaire Minister who received her wealth from solicited contributions from the Body of the Christ. We must ask ourselves, “Does Christ will His servants (ministers) to become millionaires by receiving and keeping the flock’s contributions; would the Apostle Paul or the Prophet Elijah be millionaires because of their followers?” I do not believe so, according to the Word of Yahweh! Christian men and women can begin a ministry with a heart to serve Yahweh but end up being corrupted by the money they receive as were Solomon and Judas, who were both called servants. I believe the responsibility for this corruption lies, in part, at the feet of the people who give the money. These loving individual’s error lies in the fact that they do not impose any accountability on the ministers or charities to whom they give their money. This lack of accountability can result in the ministers being tempted into sin. Paul warned Timothy, “But, they who are determined to be rich, fall into temptation, and a snare, and many foolish and hurtful covetings, the which, sink men into ruin and destruction,–– For, a root of all the vices, is the love of money, which, some, being eager for, have been seduced from the faith, and have pierced, themselves, about with many pangs” (I Tim. 6:9-10). This article will not be discussing wolves among the flocks, which is another story, but it will be discussing good people, children of Yahweh, who may have been seduced into sin by an abundance of money being laid at their feet."

Thanks to the source....

Think about Father Abraham...


Every Blessing that YOU poured out...turns back to Praise...!





"Yahweh’s blessing upon Abram made him exceedingly fruitful. He obtained riches, children, long life, health, protection from his enemies and most importantly, he received communion with the Creator, Yahweh. We also are the seeds, the descendants, of Abraham. Yahweh’s will for us is that we can also receive His baraking (blessing), resulting in our lives being exceedingly fruitful. The blessing poured out upon us will be in the proportion to which we obey, believe and act upon Yahweh’s written and spoken words. Yahweh said unto Abram, “Come out of thy land that I may bless thee” and Abram “Came according to that which Yahweh had spoken.” We also, as children of Yahweh, have been asked to “Come out of the world” that He may be able to barak us."

The Seilings....


T’was good to see Sarah and Greg Seiling today. It’s been a while though that we don’t see each other because of busy schedules.
Who are they anyway?...
They are our team mate and dear friends, a couple from Elmira, Canada. Greg was an accountant and Sarah was a nurse before the came here. This lovely amazing couple had gave up their precious and beautiful life in Canada just to heed the call of their Master JESUS. They’ve been staying here in the Philippines s for 4 years now and two years straight without visiting home. They are studying tagalong language in pursuit of Jesus’ love to the Filipinos. Their focus is the Mercy Ministry (a ministry to the rugby boys((solvent snipping boys who also live under the bridge)) in Alabang). They are really a big help to YM Team! And a blessing to the Filipinos!
Thank you guys for accepting God’s challenge to serve with us here.
Hunnnn you!

..just want to share...

I was tired today.....

It was a very tiring day today. We woke up early in the morning to prepare stuff for our “Windows YP training/seminar.” There were 15 youth who participates from 7 different churches. The day was very long because it started 9am up to 9pm…but we were at the office at about 7:30am.
It was a bit hard to me but not that harder to my friend Pen Pen who was been in a youth training in Zambalez, a 9 hours drive form Manila. She’d been there for two days. And she drove all the there and back. After that event, I mean right after that.. she has another youth camp(campus ministry) to coordinate again. Its was a three days camp another three days in a row without sleep again. And right after that…we have our three days activity again. Wheeew! What a lady! He is soooo supper busy. I cant do it! But she can,… through big eye bugs, tired body, weary mind, and some other uncomfortable feelings.
But….what amazes me is…..she is still on the go as if she could still go a distance. I love her…. She’s one in a million girl.
May God bless her.

Word!

Jesus Christ is the True God


“My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. And He Himself is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world. Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, ‘I know Him,’ and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.”

....think about it....

Something to think about.

I like reading this article because it helps me to think who I am and what I have in Christ Jesus. I just hope and pray that this will encourage to those who depend on God alone when it comes to their everyday life.

read....and be blessed!


"The earth is Yahweh’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it” (Ps. 24:1). In the totality of our lives we do not own material things but only have the privilege of using hem for our benefit. Our authority and power over material possessions will end when we eturn to dust (Gen 3:19). We are trustees of the resources Father has given us, not owners. “For who makes thee to differ? And what hast thou which thou didst not receive? But if thou didst even receive it why dost thou boast, as though thou has not received it” (I Cor. 4:7)? An excellent parable concerning trusteeship is Mark 12:1-3. “A man [Yahweh] planted a vineyard, and put round it a wall, and dug a wine-vat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen [us]; and left home. And he sent forth, unto the husbandmen [us] in the season a servant that from the husbandmen he might receive of the fruits of the vineyard [the earth].” A trustee is a person to whom another’s property or the management of another’s property is entrusted. We as trustees have been placed into a fiduciary relationship. As trustees we must look to the Trust Instrument, Yahweh’s Word, for instructions on how to manage our Father’s vineyard. Our homes, cars, money and retirement funds are Yahweh’s property. This aspect of Yahweh’s ownership is presented in I Chronicles chapter twenty-nine."

Rain....

I woke very early this morning. I don’t know why though because I’m not used of doing so. All I remember was, I went to bed at around 12am last night with a huge headache. Probably form the pressure of seeing relatives. We went to visit my Dad’s aunt in Baclaran because it was her b-day. I never thought that it would be that BIG….there was a long table with lots of food, there was lechon (roasted pig) that was sooo yummy---to lot’s of Filipinos though. There loads of cakes.. hahahha. And what amuses me more was.. there was a karaoke/videoke stand outside. My uncle were singing and dancing at the same time.. there was a lot of drinking too. Seeing them happy makes me happy and sad. (my friends knew why…)
It was fun! But it would be more fun if only Jesus is the one that rules their lives.

It was raining this morning. But I love the rain because it ushers me to come and talk to God. I have a wonderful morning though its not that nice outside. But in my heart I know that whatever the outside may look and bring, as long I am well inside my heart with my precious God…everything would be just Amazing knowing I have an AMAZING GOD!

Blessed be YOUR NAME!....


Blessed Be Your Name
In the land that is plentiful
Where Your streams of abundance flow....

Blessed Be Your name
When I'm found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness....

....Every blessing You pour out
I'll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say....
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name

Blessed be Your name
When the sun's shining down on me
When the world's 'all as it should be'....

Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there's pain in the offering

Blessed be Your name....
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, blessed be Your name....

This is actually a song a worship song...every time I listen to this song it create something in my heart and became more than a song to me....a love song to the LORD....a cry of my spirit. I want to tell HIM that every blessing He pours out unto me...It turn back into praise. And not only when I am blessed but... even in the wilderness of my life.... and when the darkness is threatening me.... and the road is marked with sufferings.... I will still say Blessed is YOUR NAME....JESUS!
I will still offer my thanksgiving...even though there's pain in the offering.

JOY....is it important?


"The joy of the Lord is your strength. (Nehemiah 8:10)"

I love to read devotional books because its refresh my inmost being. Reading the inspiring word of God makes me get up again and continue to run the run of life.
Joy is a very serious concept in the Bible as it is said in the book I am reading. It is not a superficial warm and fussy kind of feeling...."It's the fruit of the Spirit." It can help a person specially those who believe in Jesus Christ as God and Savior to overcome all kinds of adversity.
In my life as a worker of God is not that easy. I defended everything to God even the tiniest thing I ever need. But, yes, there are times that I really would like to do it my way and end up in vain...struggling. There are times that I woke up in the middle of the night to pray with all surrender to HIM.
Then...comes the Lord with His grace and joy giving it to me again.
...so today ask God to send you His supernatural joy and feel yourself grow strong in His life-changing joy....

Yes, JESUS loves me!

"Every Blessing that YOU poured out...turns back to Praise...!"


We've been through a lot of tough times, hard situations, confusing moments this past few months of our lives. Every road we want to travel is rough. Friends are hard to find, the people whom you know that would understands you are staying away from you. You want to yell at the top of your voice "...ahhhh, what a hard life! There are even times that its hard to see God. However, I still believe that no matter how cloudy the sky is... and stormy is the day...one thing I believed and will always believe that....Jesus loves me....Yes, JESUS loves me. You want to know how did I learn about this?... it's because....the Bible tells me so.

Amazing people that made other lives amazing!

I love my friends... and there are a lot of them. and none of them is my favorite because they are all means a lot to me more precious than stones...diamonds or more costly than golds. They are my very dear friends. I can go anywhere with my friends even hike to the highest mountains... or swim to the deepest oceans or disappear to the darkest places. With my friends I can just be me...no worries... I can laugh with them...cry with them. Then sometimes talks nonsense talks or talks serious talks. And most of all they are there for me. To me its friends that makes the world go round.....But its God who made friends go around....with you!


I will share to you my friends hoping you too would be encourage by them: I will start with my friend Nep; she is an amazing woman of her time. She works here and there, she helps there and here, she talk and walk and drive, she stays very late at night. She devote her life to God that is why "now you see her now you don't". I have another friend her name is Sill, she is such a giver. Her heart is big enough for those who needs her. She loves to give...and give...and give. But seldom she receives. So, God bless her with soo much....much more than what she asked. God gave her parents soo loving and for her they would give everything. I have a friend name Haras, she is just different but not indifferent. She loves to plan and give people a run. She also loves to study to make someones life steady. She loves to cook which is very good specially if she's in the mood. I love her so much and she is very responsible... if you like to can make her a call. She's a nurse who is always on call...you too would like her because she is cool. My other friend her name is Skar, I love her beyond compare. I look at her as my older sister because she cries when I went twister. She loves me much and I just know that... but, situations just went tough. She cares a lot about peoples where abouts. She help so much without a doubts. She loves coffee and sometimes i would like to give her a trophy. All I could say is...she is a one in a million lady. Another lovely friend Nylrej, she too is none alike...though she's far away but her heart is here to stay. People just love her though...even those whom she just met not so. sometimes its hard to let her go because we know that she cares a lot of what would people do. She loves to help the children and the poor...that is why she's far away to work hard so that she could give more. There's a friend of mine name Meij, she love to dance and cook and teach she also love a friend in need. She help out things with many links... so she gained a lot of friends and her works are not in vain. I like her though for she is true...and next time we know she would be saying "I do!". I have a friend her name is Zed, she has a girl that is such a cuter, so... all of us just love her. She is a down to earth kind of woman and no one would like to say "no" to her if she would love to have some. She loves to help her mum to wash the laundry and to throw the trash. I like her so because a lady like her is very few. Then I also has a friend name Airolg, she works in a kids in a hospital because she is a nurse. She start early and come home late and that is because she loves to hang out with the kids. I love her so and that is true, our friendship never went blue. She asked me to visit her and that depends on what my Master would hear.

See..., all y friends have given their lives for the sake of others. They almost forgot that they too needs some helps. But you why the could always extends their hands and hearts...its because JESUS gave His life to them/us first.



There's a lot more that i would love to add... I have more than this... but, it is hard for me to think because I am both hungry and sleepy.

Lets treasure our friends more than anything expensive.....for friends are priceless and they are gifts that only God our dear Lord could give us. I once heard this from a friend that "a relationship is worth restoring for."

So...to all those who take their time and read this...thank you and God bless.
