  1. God has designed each one of us for greatness. It is His desire for us to make an impact on this world, leave a legacy, and be a shining example of His goodness to others. That's the reason why God doesn't hold back on His blessings towards us. He showers you and me with love, grace, and mercy that are always fresh and new every single day.That means that every day, we are not only refreshed and renewed. It also means that He gives us more today than yesterday. Isn't that just wonderful? My friend, if you think you've seen your best days, I got news for you: this is only the beginning. In fact, you haven't seen your best days yet. They are still in the horizon, waiting for you. If you're a businessman, you have not closed your best deal yet. If you're a lawyer, you have not won your best case yet. If you're a teacher, you haven't taught your best lesson yet. If you're an inventor, you still have to create your greatest invention. If you're a doctor, you haven't cured the worst disease yet. If you're a runner, you haven't clocked your best time yet. If you're a photographer, you haven't snapped your best photo yet. If you're an architect, you have yet to design your best building. And if you're a Christian, you haven't won your greatest victory yet. Indeed, there is still so much more in the horizon for you to enjoy. PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I thank you that you are such an awesome and generous God. Thank you for your love, grace, and mercy that are always new and fresh each morning. Without them I would not be able to enjoy all the success and achievements I have enjoyed. I look forward to what you have in store for me. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
  2. You are always welcome @JiroDavid. May God bless us all!
  3. You are always welcome kapatid!
  4. Whenever I set an appointment to meet with a friend, I always have to confirm it a day before, and send a reminder on the day itself. Why? It's because anything can happen. My friend might suddenly get caught up with something so he/she might be late or need to cancel. Worse, he/she might have simply forgotten about it. Aren't you glad that that is never the case with God? God is not someone who will promise you something, and then after a while forget about about it or give you the "I'll think about it" spiel. When He promises something to us, it is always a done deal each time, every time. 2 Corinthians 1:20 tells us that "for all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us." In short, He is assuring us that not only does He remember every single promise He's given you. Each one of them will definitely come at the right time. If you've been praying about something, but still waiting for it to come to pass, don't despair! God is not someone who will lie or leave you hanging. Don't give up on the blessings that He has promised you! Instead, remain steadfast, keep the faith, and hold on to who God is: He is the covenant-keeping God to whom it is never a matter of "if" but a matter of "when." PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I believe that everything you've promised me is already a done deal. You are the covenant-keeping God that keeps your promises, including the promise to bring every single blessing You've promised me to come to pass. I trust that you will never fail and will fulfill your word at the right time. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
  5. In life, we spend a whole lot of time waiting. Whether we have some place to go or a dream we want to achieve, there will always be a period of time when we need to do a bit of waiting. Once we arrive, of course, that's not the end of it. We'd want to reach the next level, and that will mean a lot more waiting on our part. The thing is, there is really no way for us to predict how long we will need to wait. Sometime it's short. Other times, waiting may mean months or even years. Just think of your daily commute to work. There are days when everything happens so quickly that you barely need to wait at all. There are days that the traffic is so bad that it seems to be taking forever. It's the same thing when it comes to receiving the answers to our prayers. Many times, the bigger and bolder our prayers become, the longer we have to wait for the answer. As if that wasn't bad enough, it is during this waiting time when we find ourselves facing one challenge after another, each one more difficult than the next. When we're in church, we sing songs of worship and boldly declare that no matter how long we need to wait, we will be patient because we trust God. We enthusiastically shout out that while we're waiting, we will continue to worship Him and just seek His face. During this period of waiting, we are given the opportunity to live out what we declared and become examples to our officemates, family, and friends that we are who we say. Psalm 37:4 says to "delight yourself in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart." There is nothing wrong about wanting to receive blessing after blessing, but we should not merely focus on that. More than the blessings, we should develop that longing and desire in our hearts to seek God beyond His hand. By doing that, we get to know God more, and become more confident on who He is. That way, we are able to remain firm and steadfast during the waiting time. Life, they say, is not about the destination. It is all about the journey. As you go through the journey between lifting up your desires to God and receiving the promise, our relationship with God and our understandig of who He is will help us remain firm and steadfast. That will help us enjoy the journey. PRAYER: Heavenly Father, instead of becoming too focused on getting my prayers answered, and getting impatient during this time of waiting, I choose to spend this time with you. I want to go beyond simply seeking Your hand. I want to know You. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
  6. As imperfect as we all are, we err and we fail. Sometimes when we least expect it. However serious or critical the error or the failure, we should remain thankful. Thankful, not for the failure but for the peace and joy that we get from God even during the not-so-successful moment we are in. We have been equipped and armed with the knowledge and belief that God's love for us, and His strength in us are more than enough for us to press on, go beyond and move forward. As we learn and change, He erases and forgets! Life indeed accords us time and provides us space to make adjustments in our character, our actions, our decisions. It's up to us to allow God to fill us with His love and abounding grace, His enabling power through Jesus Christ. Let that love spill and brim over in you and --- to others! PRAYER: Heavenly Father, thank you for accepting me for who I am. Thank you that in spite of my weaknesses and failures, You are always there for me. Help me to always be humble, open to correction, and teachable so that I may learn and grow from my mistakes. In Jesus' Name, Amen!
  7. Our senior pastor showed us a picture of a mustard seed during his preaching a few years back. Even though the picture was projected onto a big screen, it was very difficult to see it. It was so tiny! The next picture he showed us was a picture of a full-grown mustard tree, and it just took my breath away. Who'd ever thought that a tall and majestic tree sprung out from an extremely tiny seed? In the same manner, we all start as tiny mustard seeds during the early parts of our career. But inside lies the prosperous and abundant life that God has promised you and me. But for that to happen, we need to first do a bit of sowing. That starts with the little things, like coming to work on time, promptly meeting deadlines and obligations, and doing every single task with a spirit of excellence. Doing these in a very consistent manner does not only give you the respect and recognition from your bosses and colleagues, but you are able to also honor God by being a good example in the workplace because He sees and takes account of all your efforts. Regardless, if we think that these are insignificant or trivial, He will be there to help us nourish what we have sown. In due time, we will reap a bountiful harvest of blessings. PRAYER: Father God, sometimes I think that my efforts don't seem to count because of my position at work. Help me from this day forward not to despise this season of small beginnings, and consistently to sow my best. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
  8. On my way to work one day, pondering an upcoming change in my life, I found that I was afraid. It really wasn't a major thing, but it felt like it to me. God spoke to me that day and simply said, "Pray about everything. Fear nothing." He showed me He couldn't work through my fear, but if I would give Him my faith, He would help me in my situation. I needed it that day for something seemingly minor, but I have used it many times since for all types of situations. Isn't it good to know that God cares about everything that concerns you, even the little things you're afraid of? Your part is to pray and have faith, and God's part is to provide the power to meet your need. What do you need to pray about tonight?
  9. Hearing that you should be strong and courageous is a lofty notion. It’s a pretty idea. It’s something nice to hear. But God changes the game and changes the tone of this concept in verse 9 of Joshua 1. He says, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.” Command? So God, let me get this straight… Up there with, ‘Do not steal. Do not kill. Do not murder’… You’re COMMANDING that I be strong and courageous? I always thought this verse was a suggestion. It’s one of those verses you see on bathroom walls in church, not a verse you see right below the 10 commandments. God is so adamant on us being strong and courageous that He made it a command. God is so invested on us getting over our fears and insecurities that He doesn’t just command strength and bravery, but he backs up us His command with His attendance in our lives. He can command us to be courageous because He’s the insurance policy on our success. God is not encouraging us to be strong because we’re great, but because He’s great. So here’s some really good news: there’s never been a better command for you to follow. Most commands feel like things you can’t do. This is a command that frees you up to do more than you’ve ever done in your life. I did try out rebuilding my dreams, and I did indeed fail twice. But I realized something as I was falling up and down my life, it feels embarrassing. In the midst of failing in my life, I kept going on, restarting again and I asked myself, “How did you get here?” There were many places I could have been, but I was here trying once again. And I realized that chasing failure took me further than chasing success ever did. God wanted me to have something better than my name with additional 3 letter on my nameplate and license. He wanted me to have a life free from fear. Since that day, my life has drastically changed because I’m just not afraid to fail anymore. The reality for you and I is that when it comes to strength and bravery, it’s not a suggestion… it’s a command. You don’t have any other choice but to live your life courageous.
  10. Salamat po sa pag share, keep sharing po!
  11. There are so many people in this world looking for success, but the common denominator amongst all successful people is that they failed. So I decided to chase failure by looking for a way that would give me the oppurtunity to restart again. I was 99% sure that I would fail, and I was looking forward to it. I knew God had something for me on the journey and I couldn’t miss it. I had a million excuses as to why I shouldn’t even try, but I had one reason that outweighed my excuses: God told me to do it. Our excuses serve as legitimate reasons why we delay our destiny, but God’s word serves as a legitimate reason to overcome. It’s like God packs inside of each of us a unique gift and plan, and then we spend decades wrestling with excuses why we think He’s wrong. We think other people are a better fit to do the thing God created us to do. But God has already given us everything we need to be who He’s called us to be. So what are you waiting for? You may have the answer to that question. But here’s a better question you may never know the answer to: Who’s waiting on you? While you make up your mind about if you have enough in the tank to become who you dream of being, there’s a life out there waiting to meet you. There’s a single mother who needs your blog. There’s an insecure student who needs your new clothing line. There’s a lost person who needs you to speak up at your job. And there were thousands of people waiting on me to restart rebuilding my dreams on becoming a Pharmacist for a team members in a company to give them permission to be who they wanted to be and I didn’t know it until I tried. I reached out to a few companion to see if they’d let me chase failure, and sure enough, that very year I graduated and passed the board exam for pharmacist all at the same year that I tried, unbelievably all fears were gone thankfully I entrusted everything to God, His plan in my life is still on. I would have never gotten a once-in-a-lifetime experience if I didn’t stop being afraid to fail. It’s amazing what can happen in your life when you believe God’s word, and stop being scared.
