Am I Trusting Right?

It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.- Psalm 118:8

Have you experience being hurt because of expecting too much?Are you the one who is a reliable friend giving everything yet when it comes to you there’s no receiving?

Trust.. what is trust? According to Merriam webster it means to believe that someone or something is reliable, good, honest, effective, etc. : to have confidence in (someone or something). Big deal! Trust’s by product is expectation. If you trust someone we really believe them, we have our confidence in them.

Trust is vital in a Christian life. However, not everyone have the same thinking as we are, like what you think of them is not the same thinking they have. They dont think what you think. You want them to be honest cuz you are honest but they are not. Some lack sensitivity others are full of it. But I believe it has a special reason behind. You see God allow things to happen for our own good. He allow us to be with someone who lacks sensitivity for us to learn how to give without expecting anything. To give with a joyful heart not thinking what will you get later but you can expect God for your reward because you will reap what you sow.. He knows what you are doing every detail of it and He knows your heart, He created you love, we are created by Him and for Him. He is in control.

Nothing is permanent in this world everything will end. Whether we like it or not. Everything in this world changes, and we can not remove the fact that the only permanent thing in this world is change itself. That makes all things temporary.

Even your dearest and closest friend can change.. our family can change .. we also change.

“Do not trust in a friend; Do not put your confidence in a companion; – Micah 7:5
I’ve learned the truth of this verse by experience and I believe even you. I’ve expected too much from friends that made me real hurt. It really hurts you know.. It stings, it will break a heart, you seem like betrayed. Everyone has experienced it but I’m glad of the special lesson behind it. Then the Lord speaks in my heart in that season telling me not to trust anyone and to put my confidence in man but I can trust Him, the One who never changes who is always the same forever. Jesus indeed protected me. I released my emotions to Him and He take it all and He has given me His peace that surpasses all understanding. Instead of hating them I started to understand and trust my Lord Jesus even more. I even love them more. The experience is a blessing. Im grateful to God for helping me know the lessons behind. “All glory to God Almighty” Jesus did it.
“It is better to trust in the Lord Than to put confidence in man.”- Psalm 118:8
.
“As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.” – 2 Samuel 22:31

Beautiful ‘Unlovely’

When I asked the Lord to teach me and help me love the way He do He has given me unlovely people who hated me, hurted me and made me cry but then I realized they are all part of God’s answer to my prayers. He is teaching me what real love is, loving not only the lovable but also those who are not. I learn how to appreciate and learn more love in loving the unlovely. God ways and thoughts are higher than ours. We are limiting ourselves but God is helping us move greater. In this season I will learn how to love and you will learn how to love like Jesus did. We can do all things through Christ. Let us continue to be true to others. Let us continue to be honest, kind and cheerful to everyone. Let us also always do the the right thing, speak right and never be afraid. We got Jesus in this matter. His hands are upon us. It is Jesus that they will see. All glory to our loving, kind and forgiving Father. β€πŸ˜πŸ’―πŸ™

Completeness in Jesus

Jesus made me whole and complete. He is my everything. Jesus is my Lord, my God and my savior. He never leave me nor forsake me. He chose me and save me and gave me the assurance of life everlasting. Now all I want is to serve Him in spirit and truth. He made me totally free. Liberty from the bondage of sin, penalty of sin, fear of death. No one can indeed satisfy my soul only Him. We can have all we want on this earth but if Jesus is not with and in our life you will always feel empty. We are not for this world but we belong to Jesus. He will come back and will get us just as He promised. He prepared a place for us in Heaven more than we could ever imagine. He is above all, undefeated, almighty, powerful. There’s none like Him. This world is full of trouble but we can depend on Him who overcome this world. He is with us and in us and He will finished what He has started in us. Trust, believe, worship.

Time in Its Purpose

I remember these words of wisdom I read before which says “Look at the time and do what is says, keep moving, keep going” As I reflect on this message it has given me a renewed mindset. Time is gold. I would agree it is more precious than gold and it sets your now and future leaving the past behind without turning back. It keeps moving and it keeps on going. A special lesson with its beautiful truth. Turning back the time I dont care much about it. I sometimes loved to move it forward since I feel like it is too slow and I dont want to wait long. You have felt and think the same right?

Little did I know that those waiting moments are the priceless gift of my life since a lot of good things develop and happen to me. Time is a gift. A gift from God that makes us aware that there’s beginning and an end. A gift that speaks promises and values. A gift that teaches. All things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose. Waiting requires patience.

Patience is indeed important. Not all have this special quality. Some struggle a lot without it in their lives.Others were filled with content having it. Time is an essential factor for patience. It is a ground for development and growth of it.

In my moment of waiting there I realized that I am just preparing for a beautiful plan by the grace of God. Our waiting is a protection, that shields us from rushing with its bitter consequences. Our waiting is a preparation for a brighter and beyond thought ideas.

We can wait for the Lord with an anticipation of the fulfillment of His promises. For He is God. He will make all things beautiful in His time. He alone holds and knows about our time and moment in everything. Why? Because we are created by Him and We are his most prized possession.Why not trust Him?

It’s alright to be overwhelmed by the sadness of waiting but it is not okay to give up. Our waiting is temporary but it has great rewards. For through it faith is strengthened. Everything has its time. What a beautiful truth!

God always wants the best for His children. Let us worship Him. Let us believe His words and trust Him. He got us even in our waiting. Fear not. β€πŸŒΈπŸπŸ™

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
[1]To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven:
[2]A time to be born, And a time to die; A time to plant, And a time to pluck what is planted;
[3]A time to kill, And a time to heal; A time to break down, And a time to build up;
[4]A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance;
[5]A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
[6]A time to gain, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to throw away;
[7]A time to tear, And a time to sew; A time to keep silence, And a time to speak;
[8]A time to love, And a time to hate; A time of war, And a time of peace.

I Refuse to Doubt

Are you doubting?

May be now or not. I believe you’ve experienced it yourself. Living in this world filled with distractions of lies
It is inevitable but you know I just found out a surprising truth with doubts. Doubting is a choice. We have the freewill. Our gift from God that can protect or leave us vulnerable it is up to us on how we use it. Doubting is a choice for you to accept and dwell on it. But you’ll suffer its inevitable consequences if you choose it, it will make you feel very weak, make you unproductive and stop your growth. It is the way of the enemy devil the liar to inject some lies into your head that made you confuse and made you believe that it will never happen and you can never understand or make it. The devil is good at it. That devil is a liar, the father of lies. Now he is exposed. But the good news is It is a choice that you can also refuse. If there is a lie there will always be the light of truth shining for us. The light of Jesus. We have a choice to rebuke and a choice to give up to the Lord. A choice to surrender your thoughts to the Lord and trust Him. Filling your minds with the truth β€”God’s words and you’ll be protected. The battle is not ours it belongs to Him.

The truth is, it doesn’t really matter what we think or what our opinions are because when the Lord say what He says it is final. It is irrevocable. What we think doesnt matter. For the Lord decides and acts according to His will not our will. And this special truth make my heart glad and grateful. I remember what Jesus said to one of His disciple who didnt believe that He is alive “stop doubting and believe”
BELIEVE.. Just believe and do not think what and how God will do it for there’s no way we can know for His ways and thoughts are higher than ours. Let’s just believe and trust Him. It will all come to passed just as He promised. All things work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose. We are called, chosen, and equipped. Those who put their trust in Him will never be disappointed.Remember He never changes. His words are final. His immutability assures us all. We are under His grace. His hands are upon us. He is our defense and our shelter. We can run to His arms and tell Him our worries, doubts and fears for He cares for you and He will heal you. The Lord is sustaining us. Be still and know that He is God. Be encourage love, be strong and courageous for God is with you wherever you go. β€πŸŒΈπŸπŸ™

I Am A Girl!

I am a girl…

A typical kind of girl

Nothing grand but true in identity’s brand

I am simple in style

In mind and in heart.

I am carefree.

I am bright filled with mystery light

To those who have known me from the start.

But I am more to the One who created me.

Complex. I am fearfully and wonderfully made

His wonderful works so good and beautiful

Nothing in compare.

I am a girl who love

I love the sound of rain in an old roof

I love the old fashioned ways of love

Made me an old soul or style they say

I love the breeze of an air as it gently touches the skin leaving many feelings

I love baby or kids their innocence is a delight

Their laughter, smiles and little actions made me smile

I love the colors of the sky and the creative form of clouds

As it speaks promises and truth in my heart

I love the ocean and seas with its color blue so calming and true

Reminds me of the love of God so clear, so deep, so wide and so strong.

In anyway in everyway I remember God in His beautiful creation.

A simple girl who doesn’t need a sophisticated life on earth.

A simple girl who knows her worth and know who she is in Christ.

A girl filled with dreams with reality and purpose

A girl who is a child of God.

I maybe typical to some but it’s ok for I am special to God.

What others think or say doesn’t matter for my God’s word is the final say. ❀

*Accept what you are, embrace who you are.. you are beautiful and loved by the most High God❀

Shut Me Not!

Sometimes after the many hits and blows that made our hearts shattered to pieces due to expectations that weren’t  met by someone we have given our trust with that made our hearts cold and shut it to everyone thinking everyone is the same and will do the same. The scripture says that our heart is deceiving above all it can make you think of something filled with selfish emotions shutting all other truth. I believe that it is our self centered view “you give,what I give” “Match what I show” “feel what I feel” which stirs unrealistic emotions when not met. I found out that guarding my heart alone is vain but the good news is I can surrender it to My Lord Jesus who cares and hold my heart. “Do not follow what your heart tells nor your mind but the conviction of the Holy Spirit” His spirit will help you see the truth and you are back to track. 

In order for us to get over with self centeredness we should follow the Lord command that tells us we should think of others more than ourselves. To give love and not to expect anything in return. Real love is about giving with joy and contentment. People come and go but there are some who will stay and be a part of your journey. Let us not shut our hearts but let us give it to the Lord and follow Him. He got us. Those who trust in Him will never be disappointed. This promises Im holding keep me going. Im happy that we have a Father in Heaven who never changes and have given us His words we can carry the Bible that will never go out of truth. An assurance of His promises. You can have what is in it just take your faith with you because the promises written is yours also. Amazing Father God. ❀🌸🍁

Worry not!

The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith, and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety.  β€” George Mueller

Nowadays we are all bombarded by different noises in this world may it be physical which includes war, cars, mouths armalite (gossips, slanders) πŸ˜…etc. It could be emotional and mental. But the worst of all this noise is the mental which weigh heavy in our hearts. As we began to want things and pursue things we dont have we neglect the beauty and essence of what we really have now. When contentment is out of the picture then discontenment filled with wistful desires happen. We started to worry of what we dont have but when we have it we asked for more. Weird people are we!.. When the weather is hot we complaint and wanted cold.. When it is getting real cold we are worrying of the effects not of it’s goodness. When it is raining for just 3 days we complaint and worried. Asking why? What if?

We are more likely to worry when the pocket is empty or almost empty like there’s no way it can be enough for the food the whole day, for the payment of tuition fee, this and that. It made me sing “worry worry worry must be funny in this  world” .πŸ˜‚

 Why are you worried? What makes you worry? Surely I can get many answers in these quests or none at all. It depends on you anyway.  I believe it is natural for us to be worried it is part of us human you’ll say since we are born emotionally active. I somehow agree I have the same view so I let worries sink in to my mind down to my heart until there’s no way that I can do with it. Then I found out that my ideas about worries are LIES! 

Worries are not from light but dark. When you are worried all you could ever think was negativity not a hint of positivity you dwell on it and you’ll be crippled gives you fear and make you feel useless. So dark, isn’t it. It will never be light. Why are we worried? I can tell you one thing this truth you know but deny sometimes. We are worried because of our lack of faith to the Most High God who is the provider and lover of our soul. It hits you!.. It hits me too. I get worried a lot of times but when Jesus helps me know the truth I come to realized that Jesus knows my need and He is my provider. My great, kind and generous provider. I get back on track and started to surrender my needs to His hands. He cares. His hands is upon us all. Only Jesus can give light to that dark area of our lives. You cannot trust anyone but the Lord.

Let us not worry about what we do not have. Worries are not from God. But Faith, love, hope is from God. Let us choose faith over worry. Remember this special TRUTH, Our God provides. He knows our needs even before we say it and the promise is He will meet all your needs. Wants and needs are different love, you should know the difference. Wants are selfish desires, you think it can be better for you but the real thing is not. It will only give a temporary happiness since it is in the form of pleasure. And needs are the exact opposite of it. Let us want what we need so we can have contentment and we can be worry free. 

Where is the best place to take your worries? Take them to God. Take your troubles, fears, disappoinments, doubts, weaknesses to Him and leave them all there.  Seek protection from the One who cannot be moved our Rock; from the One who offers eternal salvation β€” JesusCast your burdens to the Lord, He will sustain you. Then feed it with God’s words for His words are true and final it is yours to take it is His promise, believe and receive it love. 

Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all this things shall be added unto you. -Matthew 6:33
Your heart must not be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in Me. – John 14:1

Do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself sufficient is the day of its own trouble. – Matthew 6:34

Keep Going!Β 


​God is working and He is up to something greater than you imagine. Take heart, have faith love. Wait and watch how will God transform and make ways far from your expectations. He is God. I dont know what you are going through but there’s this truth I know God knows what you are going through and He got you. And the good news is God will never leave you nor forsake you. His hands are upon you. Trust Him. He knows how painful and hard it is right now but that will passed and just keep going with faith love. Keep moving, keep trusting and never stop praying. You are under God’s grace! We are under His grace. Praise the Lord. His words are living and powerful. πŸ˜β€πŸŒΈπŸπŸ’―πŸ™

Flabbergasting Reality


Sometimes I ask myself.. What is really my purpose of living. Why am I here? Is my life only about career, love, success and some other pleasures of this world. Is this really my life all about? Emptiness creep into my heart and confusion starts to take in. While emotions whirling I chose to be still and in that moment a sudden realization came in like a wind which breezes gently but powerful enough to touch my soul and heart. A kind of feeling that no man can ever give, a kind of feeling of reality and peace that this world can’t ever provide. I woke and reality sets in. A flabbergasting experience!. That reality brought me to light when I got to know Jesus and let Him be my Lord and savior. I honestly dont know much about life. I just live but with no purpose and destination that is eternal. As I continue living my life I’ve come to realized that nothing in this world will lasts and iy comes along with expiration date they are all temporary. And the only thing that never changes is “CHANGE” itself, I believe that this is the reason of all temporary things in this world. You can not trust anything or anyone cuz they change. I am very grateful that the Lord I trust never Changes. His immutability make all things constant. His promises, love, mercy, goodness, kindness and all. There’s none like Him. He is incomparable. All praises and glory to the One true God. Jesus is the perfector and finisher of my faith. He will finished what He has started and that I believe. It’s amazing to know that life is beautiful driven with purpose. Still Im trying to know by asking God this purpose of my life. But a certain truth is clear for me I live for Christ and it is not I who live but Christ, I live this body by faith. I live to give glory to the Lord. To serve others. This keeps me going. Life is indeed a roller coaster but it’s alright since the Lord is with me. I can conquer everything with Him by my side and He is in me to do it. I want to truly live this beautiful purpose in accordance to His will. He is God. He is my heavenly Father. My everything.  Whatever life has to offer let’s face it with faith knowing you can do all things through Christ our Lord. We belong to Him. Be still love with this flabbergasting reality of life.
