Stop, Listen, Look

"There's no doubt you have problems to overcome. But God is there with you to overcome that obstacle."

To pursue intimacy with God, we must make it a habit to stop, to listen and to look.

8 I have set the Lord always before me. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure.
11 You will make known to me the path, of life. In Your presence is fullness of joy, in Your right hand there are pleasures forever.
Psalm 16:8-9,11

STOP RUNNING . STOP TO REST
Most of us run to escape problems and obligations. Some run away into isolation and thus fall prey to Satan's most potent weapon to disengage us from our fellowship with God. Others run aimlessly as chasing after the wind. If we keep running without stopping, we will soon burn out.

Jesus invites us to stop and come with Him into a quiet place to rest

"Then, because so many people were coming and going tat they did not even have a chance to eat, He said to them, "Come with Me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest" (Mark 6:31)

In Matthew 11:28, "Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Also in Psalm 127:1-2, "Jesus is the center and the source of our rest. If the Lord is not the center of everything we do, then our labor is in vain."

LISTEN TO YOURSELF.LISTEN TO GOD
In Psalm 45:5, "Stop so you can listen to yourself. Whatever you say reveals your heart." Listening to your own voice enable you t discover your blind spots and clarify your issues. It simplifies your life and enable you to pay attention to areas within your control, to let go and let God.

Stop so you can listen to the gentle whisper of God speaking to your heart. In His small still voice, God may encourage you, redirect you or even rebuke you, in any case, it will be what you need to hear from God at the moment.

LOOK TO GOD'S PLANS AND PROMISES.
God determines our beginning and end. Until His specific agenda with us has been completed, we will have the privilege of being a part of His work on earth. But we need to remember that God can fulfill His plans with our without us; He has chosen us to have the privilege to be His workmanship through Christ Jesus to do good works, which God has prepared for us in advance to do so.

God wants you to stop, to listen and to look at the big picture. He has amazing plans beyond our comprehension and beyond your lifetime, yet He purposely chose you to be part of. Therefore you shall not be shaken, your heart wil be glad, your tongue rejoices and your body rests secure, because God is right before you..

Chapter 18 of Rockin' Heaven manga. Kyaaahh...

Super exciting na ang kwento. Nasa kalahati na din ako halos. Can't wait to finish this manga and make a review about it.

It's Sunday tomorrow. Hope I can share some message again from church. ^.~

I admire someone who has been through a lot and still keeps their head up.

It's funny how it's easier to hold on but hard to let go.

Be real...


Selah : Holy Pause

Sharing what I learned from church is so refreshing... So hello there my dearest blog readers, Im hoping I can share what I understand during the worship service to you all.

So the topic is about Selah : Holy Pause, how we will have a good relationship to God if we don't know how to make the right time to pause, and pay attention to Him. From the handout that our church handed us for this message,

This busy-ness posts a danger in our growing intimacy with God as followers of Christ. We may find ourselves just like Martha who was worried and bothered with so man thing. It is time to step back and pause to choose the right thing that which Mary has chosen, to sit at the feet of Jesus to listen to Him attentively. [Read Luke 10:39-42]

As a human, oftentimes we get so busy doing different tasks to other, and we got ourselves becoming demanding, irritable, frustrated, impatient and other negative moods. We are so busy doing things that might lead us to have less intimacy with God. Why don't we try to hear God's words more, and let the intimacy grow with Him, and for sure we will begin to focus on our cares, ourselves and others.....


From Celebration of Discipline: The Path to Spiritual Growth, author Richard Foster made this significant observation:

In contemporary society our Adversary majors in three things: noise, hurry, and crowds. If he can keep us engaged in “much-ness” and “manyness,” he will rest satisfied

Selah is a Hebrew word in the bible that essentially means a holy pause in order to pay attention. In Psalms, it signals people to stop singing but keep the music going so they could reflect on what the have just sung.


Puerto Princesa, Palawan Tour last October 30, 2012- November 01, 2012


Underground River is awesome. The rock formations are unbelievable, it is so amazing. Yay, and take note it is one of the seven new wonders of the world.


Eating seafoods is so heart-flattering. My favorites...



I enjoyed this trip a lot, because it is a late treat of my mom and my sister for my 18th birthday last October 21st.I was not able to post a blog about my birthday. Maybe some other time, but surely you will feel the fun we had. Im so happy that day. Instead of candles, roses, gifts.. we had pick-up lines, and truths or dares. :))Too much for my birthday, I promise i'll post the story soon.

Master your Emotions by being GOD-centered.




I attended church last week, and this is the topic that our Pastor was discussing. I being a Christian at young age, still suffers in controlling my emotions especially when I got involve in some love issues, it’s hard to decide what you’re going to do if you’re just going to follow what your hear says, or what your mind says.. It’s just hard for me to handle it very well, now I knew the reason behind these difficulties in my emotions it is because God is not the center of my emotions. So with this message, I learned how to control or master my emotions by being God-centered. With God, we can be stronger than before, we can learn how to put our faith in Him because He will be beside us whenever we need Him. I hope this message will also help you for better.

In this message there are the sub-topics that will help you understand it more.

• Emotion will lead to action - Meaning, waiting somehow leads to a good thing. Now, people were not willing to wait. They want to get something as soon as they think of it. And by hurrying something, you might just get something that is just a replacement to what you want because this not really meant for you. You’ll just get unsatisfied.
• Emotional Intelligence – Recognize one’s moods, feelings, and impulses and to process them into right thinking and action. Give space, let them think, let them stand with a decision. But you should take place, when they’re choosing the wrong path. Because deciding something whenever you’re in bad mood won’t help at all.
