Life of a Teacher

And oh I just realized that it’s been a while since I blogged here. My life is full of stress right now. Sometimes I feel like being in the wrong workplace, but then God only reminds me that He has a purpose for everything! He put me in the right place to glorify him in all my ways. I just pray that patience, self-control, humility and compassion will help me get through the situation I am facing right now. God, please help!

God’s Three Statements Through Gideon (Judges 6,7)

  1. God is sending you.
  2. He is going to be with you.
  3. You can’t fail.

It’s amazing how God’s Words can transform each individual! It takes a lot of faith for Gideon to win the battle that God allowed way back then. However, God’s grace is enough. He is true to His promises that He will never leave us nor forsake us! 

If you are facing a problem now, praise God because through that, you will let others know that THERE IS A GOD!

Building Others Up through Words

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.

Ephesians 4: 29

We were given two ears and one mouth to listen twice as we talk. God wants us to speak about His love and goodness. We, as Christians, should not let our tongues be the reason to destroy but rather, it should be the source of strength and joy of others.

Dear God, 

Grant us the courage to talk about Your love and grace. Help us to build others up. I know we can do this through You. Amen.

God Opposes the Proud

I gave a testimony a while ago in the church about humility, God’s grace and forgiveness. It was all about what happened to me this week where I found God’s grace. Truly, God gave me a humble heart to admit my mistake with a colleague. Good thing is that, we talked about it and the problem was solved right then and then. If only one did not humble himself, I think we are still not yet over with what happened until now. 

What’s amazing is that the testimony that I gave was exactly what God wanted to talk about through the preacher for today’s service. 

God’s unmerited love to us is indeed amazing. His love is beyond measure. To Him be the glory forever and ever! 

========================================

Young men, in the same way be submissive to those who are older. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because,

“God opposes the proud

but gives grace to the humble.”

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.

1 Peter 5:5-9

Lord, heal me.

I know it’s been a while but the pain is still here. It’s just so sad to realize how things turned out for the past few weeks. God is so great that He was able to make me feel His unconditional love. I deeply thank my God for always being there for me especially at the time when I need Him the most. My heart is still hurting but with God, I know that the pain will be worth it. It will help me to be a stronger woman God wants me to be. He will show me His perfect will in my life at His perfect time. Thank you Lord for giving me hope that someday I will soon know the man you truly want me to be with.

What makes a woman beautiful?

Christ’s love.

Knowing that her value is not depending on how she looks and what she has.

Experiencing security in being alone without compromising what she has saved.

That’s what makes a woman beautiful.

Knowing she is loved by God to her very core. 

That makes a woman beautiful, to her very soul.

EDSA to Cory Aquino Avenue

Renaming the said road should not be the focus of the House of Representatives. Tanong lang, mawawala po ba ang heavy traffic sa EDSA pag pinalitan ang pangalan nyan? Please focus sa mga bagay na MAS kailangan ngayon ng PILIPINAS. Not everything in this country is all about your family.

I will wait!

I will know you because when you speak, I will be reminded of Solomon’s wisdom. Your ability to lead will remind me of Moses. Your faith will remind me of Abraham. Your comfortness on God’s Word will remind me of Daniel.Your inspiration will remind me of Paul.Your heart for God will remind me of David. Your attention to detail will remind me of Noah.Your integrity will remind me of Joseph.And your ability to abandon your own world will remind me of the disciples.But your ability to love selflessly and unconditionally will remind me of Christ.But I won’t need to identify you by any special matthews or any special marks.Cos His Word will be tattooed all over your heart. And you will know me and you will find me with the boldness of Esther, with the warmth closeness of Ruth, with the hospitality of Lydia.In line with the submission of Mary which is engulfed in the tears of praying Hannah.I will be the one in Proverbs 31 - waiting for you.But to my Father, who has known me before my birth, I decide Your will above mine, so even when you call me in the life of single bessedness, my heart is content with You the One - You were the greatest love story ever told. The greatest love ever known. You are forever my judge and I will forever be Your witness. And I pray that I will always be found above the mission of my Father’s business.I will always be Yours. And I will always wait for You Lord. More than the watchman wait for the morning. I will wait!

Purihin ang Panginoon!

Salamat sa Diyos sa pagsubok na patuloy Niyang pinaparanas sa akin at sa aking buong pamilya. Sa pamamagitan nito, napapatunayan lamang na tapat Siya at hindi nagbabago. Tunay ang Kanyang pangako sa Kanyang mga anak, hindi Niya tayo iiwan ni pababayaan!

Dakila ka O, Diyos. Ang lahat ng bagay sa Iyo ay may panahon. Sa Iyo ang lahat ng kapurihan at kaluwalhatian!

Keeping my fingers crossed…

Just realized how much I missed blogging! It’s been a while since I last put my thoughts here on tumblr. Anyway, school has never been so busy these days! Being a teacher is indeed not only a profession, but a LIFE! I can say that it’s already my life! What more can you ask for? You have little kids making you kulit everyday! Not to mention all the other activities that we engage in. 

Anyway, tomorrow will be a long day for me, I guess! Well, I will enroll for the last two core courses that I need to take before I enter thesis writing for my post graduate studies! I can now imagine what will I look like tomorrow.. maybe requesting a professor to allow me to take the STATISTICS and Scientific Writing subjects which should not to be taken at the same semester! Huhu.. I do hope I will get those two subjects tomorrow! Or else, I would not study for this sem! I really want to finish what I have started. God’s will be done!

Dear God,

You know the desires of my heart. You know that what I really want is to let my friends and loved ones know You. I always pray that soon there will come a time that we will be all together - praising and worshiping Your holy name. What happened today was a realization that it is not easy to follow You. All I ever wanted is to share the Good News with them. I want to reach them with Your help. I thank You for these trials because I know that the devil is also at work. I just have to hold on to my faith that everything will be possible in Your perfect time. My friends and loved ones will know You, will believe You, will follow You and will love You. My prayer is the same everyday, I pray for boldness of the heart as I share Your goodness in my life. I pray that they will see You in my life as a Christian. This will be all possible as I walk with you. I believe in You and Your amazing power to change things, and to transform people’s lives! I thank You Lord for I know that Your name will be known in this entire world. I will wait patiently with that time. I trust only in You. All the praises and honor be Yours forever, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

There is something on Sundays that I do love. Perhaps, it is because of the fact that it’s the Lord’s day! It is also the time to have a genuine fellowship with fellow believers. God is so good. He has done amazing things in our lives. To Him be the glory forever and ever!

Father, why have You so blessed me?

I wonder how many times have I asked this question to God. His love is amazing!

When, Jesus was beaten before He was nailed on the cross, His face was almost on the ground but His love for me and you compelled for Him to go up again! His love for me and you! He rose from the ground to receive the full beatings that He don’t deserve. By His wounds, we are healed! (Isaiah 53:5) Somebody has paid for my sins - for YOUR sins! He was PUNISHED for OUR sins! We received good that we don’t deserve because Jesus received all the bad that He cannot deserve. Jesus finished it all on the cross for us to live a victorious life! He has come to love you, to redeem you, to bless you, to heal you! His GRACE is greater than all our sins! 

Herein, our love was made perfect, that we may have BOLDNESS in the day of judgment, because as He is, so are we in this world. 1 John 4:17

To Him be the glory forever and ever!
