I’ve given 37 days vacation leave from my annual vacation in work. It’s been 3 years and 5 months when I last breathe the air in the Philippines (as if it differ to the air I breathe abroad) haha :D

This is one of my most awaited time for me; going back home.

Seeing my mama, my siblings, my dad, everyone! Not in the screen from skype, but holding them tightly with that warm hug! 

The privilege time to share to them the Gospel, in the best way I can.

The time where I visited my home church in Manila.

The time where I can witness God’s forgiveness.

i love you dadi :)

The time where I can cuddle with these little ones that have grown big now.

Time to see longed friends.

I can flood this post with all the photos I have in my desktop, hence it will never be enough for me to elaborate how God work throughout my vacation.

There were a lot of time I know my faith were tested as I testify God’s salvation in my life. And by the Lord’s grace He hath preserved me all along my stay.

Truly, my more than 3 years of waiting has equipped me to experience God’s grace and guidance as I spend my days along with my family and friends. Those 37 days of vacation has refreshed me! With God’s protection and traveling mercy; with the good health and strength He bestowed upon us to enjoy every single moment we’re together, indeed, His timing is forever more perfect! 

” ღ He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. ~ Ecclesiastes 3:11 “

God’s timing is always and forever perfect! ♡

My mama’s 53rd birthday is one of the blessed. God answered my long time prayer.

The gospel was shared to my relatives and loved ones, as God used Pastor Jun Ramirez for them to hear the good news.

This day is one of the best way on how God wants me to start this year, sharing the gift of salvation.

I am overfilled with gratefulness and joy. ♡

My heart rejoices along with the angels above, for the souls saved. I can never thank God enough for all the promises He faithfully been fulfilling.

One day on the another, in His own perfect time, in His own wonderful way, regardless how we see it, His glorious desire will reign above all men’s heart, and that’s for us to fall in love with Him each day of our lives.

No matter how undeserving we are, knowing all of our shortcomings, and struggles with lusts, God’s unfailing grace is pouring out towards our lives!

” ღ What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me? I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD. ~ Psalms 116:12-13″

I love you Lord! ♡

♪♫ We were the reason
That He gave His life
We were the reason
That He suffered and died
To a world that was lost
He gave all He could give
To show us the reason to live ♪♫

This song should not be remembered only during this season but in everyday of our lives. :)

“Jesus is known to be the Savior, but the question is, is He your Savior?” This is the question of Pastor Allen Belwa during our Sunday service before Christmas.

The year is about to end, and we can’t hold back in facing another new year this 2015. God has given us the freedom of choice and the ability to reason, for others to make Him known. But not to reason out our freedom to justify on our own. Allow Jesus Christ to work in your heart, experience His love, strength, and grace! ♡

Lay down your faith and trust on Him, for He laid down His precious blood for you and me. ♡

 ღ Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. ~ John 14:6

Men by nature are “forgetters”.

Whether we admit it or not, we already fail to remember the last time we forget. ;)

I took a bus one day and aside from my bag pack I also have this paper bag on my hand. When I sat on my seat, I put down the paper bag on the floor and put my bag pack on my lap. And yes, when I arrived home that’s the only time I realize I forgot my paper bag.

I do this sticky note thing that supposed to be my reminder yet I often overlook on it. If there are some tasks I really need to do, I used to set an alarm from my mobile, but the problem is when it alarms and I’m in the middle of work, I can easily dismiss the alarm.

In my line of work I have this daily task note listed according to most priority to least. But even I already have this; I still miss things to do. How?

It is because our mind is filled with unnecessary thoughts. This’s distracting us and making us often forget things on hand.

The last resort just brought to me from God’s word to solve this “mild amnesia” of mine, which is taking each task heartily and prioritizing it properly.

As they say, “haste is waste” :) so we really have to take time and focus.

This is a very simple instruction from the book of Philippians that help me do things with joy and gladness. (I do still forget, but not that much as before :) )

ღ Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~ Philippians 4:8

Long wait is over and God answered my prayer. ♡

I love photographs, for it preserves the exact emotion and scenery of that certain occasion.

You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”  ― Ansel Adams

One of my prayer is to own a camera that can produce good quality photos, which I know I can’t afford. :P

There are many things that are much more necessary than my wants ;) I believe that one day God will provide it, but never thought that it will be today :)

Now meet Sam! ♡ (shortcut for Samsung, hahaha :D )

Just sharing God’s blessing, and testifying how He answers prayers, much more than what we need ♡

There are many things that we must look at in cultivating a proper Biblical perspective of photography. Our photography is meant to honor God; for we are the creation and He is the Creator. Whether our photography is of nature, humans, or the creations that God has empowered us to design all ought to give Him the glory that is due. – OJCCC” ♡

ღ Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. ~ Psalms 37:5

God’s Favour

That moment when things aren’t going according to what we’ve expected, and suddenly turn out to be God’s best intentions I believe that is God’s favour.

That moment when we fail to obey and felt that we deserved the required chastisement, and suddenly be reminded that God is merciful and forgiving. I believe that is God’s favour.

That instance when people try to pull you down, and presumptuously realize no one can ever take you out from God’s hands. I believe that is God’s favour.

Getting God’s favour is one thing all believers desire.  Recognizing it every day somehow regains Godly confidence when shame drains us up.

Each time I fail God, I really feel that I don’t deserve any of His blessing, and His favour will never be mine. But His GRACE is ETERNAL, the more I ponder upon it, the more it humbles me.

The realization of God’s faithfulness in my life deepens my faith on Him. Praise God for the gift of salvation, all glory to His name alone! ♡

ღ But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. ~ John 1:12-13

Our conviction to God defines us. Basically it begins from Christ working in our HEARTS. :)

Our intentions and desires can be Godly but oftentimes it’s worldly, selfish, and that is where the struggle begun.

I use to hear from brethren “let’s make our hearts right before God” and this brought a huge impact in my Christian journey. Ever since I heard it, the awareness of God’s presence has been there.

Maybe there is big difference on how we act when we’re in a crowd and when we’re alone. But there is much more difference knowing God is ALWAYS watching us.

He knows the condition of our mind and heart, He knows EVERYTHING.

With which, the essence of submission should be realized.

Submission to SOMEONE that can sustain life ETERNALLY. :)

Prayer requires Godly conviction, asking God to correct our hearts before Him. The reason why we still fall short in obeying God, we missed to prepare our hearts in full conviction. Not submitting wholly but with reservation.

Let’s humble our hearts and depend on Christ as we continuously learn, receive, and hear from His word, let’s DO it FAITHFULLY with Godly conviction. 

ღ Those things which ye have both learned, received, and heard, and seen in me, DO: and the God of peace shall be with you. ~Philippians 4:9

It takes FAITH to be truthful. :)

Oftentimes circumstances in our lives challenges us to tell the truth even if it hurts; even if it will put us on shame, even if it will place you into trouble.

Because delivering TRUTH out from our lives demands us bear pain; to put down our pride; and to submit to God by FAITH. ♥

Keeping up a pure conscience will build confidence and peace in our hearts. It creates credibility to our personality. And most important, it pleases God to see us growing deeply in love with Him. ” If ye love me, keep my commandments. ~ John 14:15 ” ♥

There’s only one truth here on earth, and that’s the word of God! :) The only words that makes one person free from anything. “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free ~ John 8:32 “ Taking us away from deceit and ignorance ” As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance. ~ 1 Peter 1:14 ” And stirring us to seek His will towards our lives.

I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me. ~ Psalms 119:30
