Think Twice

Photo not mine
Are you compromising? Doing it your way? Insisting your own timeline? Well... Think twice!

“Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future. Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.”
Proverbs 19:20-21 ESV

Great God

He is a great God.
He is an awesome, wonderful God.
Mighty in power, author of wisdom.
Better than life.

One of my favorite worship songs. I like this song because the adjectives used by Ptr. Archie Castillo in describing God really fits how I experience and consider HIM in my life.

I pray that every word used to describe God in this song will not be a cliche and that as we sing this song to God, we will also meditate on each lines and declare God's power over our lives. I pray that this will not be just a song that we sing with the crowd but also our individual song and declaration of Faith in God, which should be evident in our daily lives.

Indeed, He is a Great God!

Never Give Up

Today, during Leaders Huddle with Our Lady of Fatima University (OLFU) students, we've shared our highlights and low moments for the week. After hearing from everyone, we all agreed that God's message for the team is "Never Give Up!".

Aside from the team's visions and objectives, we have our individual goals too. Each of us may be facing different temptations and challenges everyday yet God is ever faithful and patient that He even encouraged us not to quit. We were reminded to fix our eyes on Jesus and throw off anything that can distract and stop us to succeed.

Before we ended in prayer, this verse came to mind,

2 Corinithians 12: 8-9 (NLT)
Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.

We can continue and not give up because God is there, He is enough to keep us going. His grace is all we needOnce we become humble to accept our weaknesses and surrender all our struggles to God, He becomes our strength. His power works best in us as we depend on Him. There is indeed no reason to give up!
