Siyempre lahat naman tayo may disappointments pero we should always remember that God love us... That's the lesson ive learned recently ng nagtampo ako kay God.
"For I know the plans I have for you" declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart. I will be found by you," declares the Lord, and I will bring you back from captivity.
When you are in distress and all these then in later days you will return to the Lord your God and obey Him. For the Lord your God is a merciful God; He will not abandon or destroy you or forget the covenant with your forefathers, which He confirmed to them by oath.
if you take drugs...
1 Corinthians 6:20
Don't you know that your body is the Temple of the Holy Spirit?
So you must honor God with you body.
if you fail
Don't get tired of doing what is good. Don't get discouraged and give up, for we will reap a havest of blessing at the appropriate time.
if you are weak
Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens and i will give you rest."
if you seek wisdom
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him aks of God, who gives to all liberally and without repoach, and it will be given to him.
Trust in the Lord
Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart . Commit your way to the Lord; turst in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
If you want to fight evil
When the Holy Spirit controls our lives, He will produce this kind of fruit in us: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
if you need strenght
Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart because I have overcome the world.
if you need direction
He will teach the ways that are right and best to those who humbly turn to Him.
JESUS CHRIST IS YOUR ONLY SAVIOR!
Jesus told him, " I am the Way- yes, and the Truth and the Life. No one can get to the Father except by means of Me.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Psalm 46:10 Be still and know that I am God.
God never complained the trials He underwent to save you from all the curses of the Law because He loveS you more than anybody can and anybody does. He is in control of everything just wait for His purpose and everything you once haved hoped for will unfold before your very eyes. Im sure of that!
If you already accepted God you should do these things:
Pray- it is a form of communication to God. Could a relationship survive without communication? So therefore we need to pray Daily why does God put Give us this day our Daily bread? not weekly or monthly? Because God wants us to communicate with Him daily.
Read the Bible- you could not say that you know God without knowing His words. The more you get to know God the more you'll be in love with him.
Go to church- where do students go? school. therefore where do Christians go? church right?!
Everybody ask yourself: Got Jesus? I'm telling you It's hell without Him! So if you don't have a home church yet you could go to Word of Hope Church infront of SM Annex services are 6 am 8 am 10:30 am 3pm and the last is 5:30 pm. Believe Him. He is able! He never fails and He loves you!

how to make your new year a prosperous one by Rev. Pastor Dr. David A. Sobrepena and Uncovering Discernment (sourece:Kerygma)- a review
When i bought the November 2006 issue of Kerygma grabe talaga i'ved read about Uncovering Discernment, an interview with Thomas H. Green SJ by Tess V. Atienza, SO INSPIRING!
ok the reason kung bakit pinost ko ito sa blog ko is everytime na magppray ako, madalas kong pinagdarasal na God sana madiscern ko talaga kung anong plano Niyo for me. siyempre God knows best! hindi good, hindi better! kundi BEST! B-E-S-T! BEST!
Before ako matulog, at on the way to school nagdarasal talaga ako, pero may mga times din na hindi, ayoko kasing magpray pag sobrang antok ko na kasi para sa akin, ayaw kong nakakatulugan ko prayer ko, siyempre prayer is a form of communication with God, anong feeling mo kung tinulugan ka ng taong kausap mo tapos hihingi hingi pa siya ng favor? pagbibigyan mo pa ba yun? i don't think so!
kasi just recently, nagtampo ako kay God... ewan ko ba kasi there's this 2-day no communication with Him, as in hindi talaga ako nakakapagdasal and then nung 24th of December, may part kasi sa service (mass for Born Again) na you could raise your hand kung gusto mo i'accept or magbalik-loob kay God, i raised mine pero ewan ko ba ang nangyari is naramdaman ko naman kahit papano ang pasko but yung mga nangyari sa pagdiscipline sa amin this school year may kirot parin eh, then hindi ako masaya sa birthday ko, lalo na sa bagong taon, yung bang naramdaman ko na parang di na Niya ako naririnig...
pero gusto ko labanan yung tampo ko kay God January 1, 2006 nagsimba kami, then i prayed that God will speak to the heart of whoever the preacher tonight na maging para sa akin ang preach na iyon, yung tipong maliwanagan ako kung anong dapat kong gawin...
at un nga ang preaching is to have a dynamic purpose, at positive attitude
sabi nga ni John Maxwell: "attitude determines your altitude"
aminado naman ako na pessimistic ako madalas when it comes to having a problem, pero when i heard that nagbago isip ko
sabi nga ni God in a part of the verse
"HE will freely give us all things"
naniniwala ako dun dahil si God ay mayaman, maawain, at ayaw niyang nalulungkot ang tao kaya nga ginawa niya si Eve diba?!
and motivation and determination
SEE Phil 3:14
"I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."
9:4 I must work the works of Him who sent me while it is day; for the night is coming when no one can work.
BUT THAT WAS PREACHED BY REV. DR. DAVID SOBREPENA
WHAT'S IN KERYGMA WAS:
ung favorite part ko doon is, determine kung saan galing ang consolation kay God ba o sa devil?
to determine that look at the beginning, middle and end...
pero pano kung maganda ang beginning?
kunwari Aira met Gary, a time where she could handle a stable relationship, kasi she's making good money, tapos di makakaistorbo sa studies kasi graduate na diba? ganda ng beginning
then nag blobloom yung girl, nagiging happy than before- ganda rin ng middle
now there are 2 possible endings
nag break sila tapos sobrang devastated yung girl ayaw na magwork, maki-interact, ayaw na nagtampo na kay God, then the end is not good, thus it does not come from God
kung kahit anong mangyari, naging madasalin yung girl. laging nagsismba, naging mas close kay God then maganda ang ending, it comes from God!
discernment according to Fr. Thomas H. Green, SJ,
it is discovering in prayer how God wishes us to act.
=kaya nga wag magtaka yung mga Christians kung bakit namamali sila ng landas kahit Christians sila dahil kung you lack prayer how can you discern how God wishes you to act?!
=according to our Church, Word of Hope near SM Annex, prayer is a communication with God, it is essential kasi imagine a relationship with no communication could it last?
aun... as of now, i said sorry to God for my rotten attitude, and i beg Him to let me change for a better me! basta para sa akin, alam naman ni God na kahit nagtampo ako sa Kanya during those times Siya parin kinikilala ko na Diyos ko at mahal na mahal ko parin Siya!
Love you God! to God be the Glory!!!
