Whom you gonna call?


The line was busy...no one listens...
Whom you gonna call?
You are hurt...
In need...
Wants help...
Hates someone...
Confused...
Blessed?
Whom you gonna call?


Father God, I thank you that everyone who calls unto thee will be heard...will be saved!
But, I do pray that we will always listen to you.
Listen, so we will be comforted.
Listen, so that our needs will be met.
Listen, because our helps comes from above.
Listen, because you show us the way, the truth and the life.
Listen, so that we can learn to forgive those we hate.
Listen, because in your presense, there is peace.
Listen, so that we will know how to share our blessings.
Listen...with all our hearts, souls and spirits...to know...to feel...to hear,
and be assured that you are always there...Father.

Do you need help?


Do you need help?
Do you want a miracle in your life?
Are you undergoing a situation that seems to be impossible to overcome?
Take heart...hold on....
When we are at our most vulnerable point,
certain that help will never come....it will.
In God's perfect time.
Just keep the faith burning...with God's words...
soak in God's presence and be renewed.
On the other hand. ..
Father, by faith in you, we became heirs of your kingdom.  We are now your children.
Clothed with Christ.
Jesus made us clean, pure, and righteous in your sight.
Help us to act as your children.
Always trusting and believing. 
Having your character because you are our Father.
Do not let us stain the clothing that Jesus put on us.
But let that white clothing shine for others to see.
For your glory Oh God.
Father, I claim your miracle into our lives.
The work of your hands.
I pray in Jesus name.

Flame- thrower!


Have you met one lately? 
A persom who always complain and angry with people?
He /she  fires angry words to others? Nothing good to say?
Makes your day unbearable?
But be patient ..beneath...there is a heart that longs to be loved...
that hurts...long to be cared for. 
Needs to be touched by God's love through us.
So, be that someone today.. who loves the flame-thrower.

Touched!


Today, I read i John 11:32-44 that Jesus was touched. He wept too and showed that he cares. That is why he reacted. Prayed with confidence and with thanksgiving. Assured that God will answer his impossible prayer in human eyes. To raise the dead to life.


My prayer for us:
Lord, I pray that we will also be touched by you. That your words will make us act in faith to do the impossible.  To pray with assurance and thanksgiving in our hearts.
I thank you that through you, we can also give life to all we meet everywhere and through cyberspace. There will be also be life to all we put our hands into. Amen

Me first?



Remember how we are when we were small kids, wanting everything for ourselves? Wanting to be the center of attractions? As we grow up and begin to school,  the goal is to have the best character. In the sport competitions, everybody aims to be in the first place. We want to be the best in every area of our lives. We want to succeed in all we do: in school, in blogword, in family, in circle of friends, in our ministry in God and so on. A lot of us is suffering from the bad case of " me-ism. "

I must admit that my goal is always to achieve to be better in everything I do. Maybe to be the best is only I can dream about.

In my meditation of the word of God........

Joshua 1:10-18


10 So Joshua ordered the officers of the people: 11 “Go through the camp and tell the people, ‘Get your provisions ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the Lord your God is giving you for your own.’”

12 But to the Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh, Joshua said, 13 “Remember the command that Moses the servant of the Lord gave you after he said, ‘The Lord your God will give you rest by giving you this land.’ 14 Your wives, your children and your livestock may stay in the land that Moses gave you east of the Jordan, but all your fighting men, ready for battle, must cross over ahead of your fellow Israelites. You are to help them 15 until the Lord gives them rest, as he has done for you, and until they too have taken possession of the land the Lord your God is giving them. After that, you may go back and occupy your own land, which Moses the servant of the Lord gave you east of the Jordan toward the sunrise.”
16 Then they answered Joshua, “Whatever you have commanded us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go. 17 Just as we fully obeyed Moses, so we will obey you. Only may the Lord your God be with you as he was with Moses. 18 Whoever rebels against your word and does not obey it, whatever you may command them, will be put to death. Only be strong and courageous!

Another verse:

Joshua 1:14 You are to help your brothers.

Here Joshua reminded the Israelites to first help fellow Israelites to acquire a land of their own, before they can occupy their own land. It was putting the other person first before oneself.

 So God reminded me of these things:

At work...I should do my best for the benefit of everybody.

In blogworld...I should do my best to inspire and be inspired for the growth of my self and fellow bloggers..

At school... ( coz I am undergoing a 6 month study right now)   to gain knowledge so that I can contribute to the society.

My family...my role is to support, to guide, to inspire, to be a witness for Christ.

In my circle of friends...I should be a shoulder to cry on, a friend who helps, who share and to have fun with.

So Father, help me/ us to be cured of " me-ism".  Our goal is to be "we-ism".


How about you? Do you want to be the best in everything you do?

Quick fixes


Quick fixes...in these days where everything seems to be instant....
we are not used anymore to wait.
Slow internet connection makes us irritated. If we couldn't reach someone by phone instantly, then we begin to wonder what is wrong. Instant foods, instant relationship, instant happiness, instant answers to our prayers...If not, we do our own quick fixing....that can result into total failure.

God gave  me these words: Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him. Psalm 37:7

But Lord, I am hurting....
But Lord, when are you going to answer?
But Lord, my heart is aching....
But Lord, I need your answer right now...
But Lord, I am sick....

Still God said: Be still....wait for me....there is something to learn in waiting and trusting.
Well, thank you for the reminder Lord. Help me/ us to be still and know that you are God and will do the fixing for us.

Routinely fresh!

Pictures taken 15 minutes drive from home.

Are you tired of doing the same things over and over again everyday?
Don't be, because through all the tasks that we are doin repeatedly,
there are always something to learn...
new beauty to be discovered....
new problems to overcomes....
chances to be creative...
and to put our trust in our creator...



Thank you Father for your refreshing words everyday.
A balm for our souls and a light to our darkest moments.
An inspiration to continue and life to our physical bodies...
Let us look at our role in life as an opportuninty 
to know more of your goodness and wisdom.
Thank you that there is more in our lives...
than the round of humdrum of duties.
In them is a great opportunity to our spiritual maturity...
and contribution to the lives of others.
