Hi! I'm a young lady who has a heart for God. My greatest desires are to be a God-fearing person and to have a godly family someday (Psalm 112).
I will be posting quotes, words from many different people that inspires me a lot
I hope that the quotes, verses, or even my personal posts will be a blessing and encouragement. =)
You are very much welcome to follow this blog so I can be a blessing to you and I can follow back also If you like. =)
I would like to ask for your prayers for my mom. My parents are seeking advices and better treatment for my mom. During her checkup a few days ago, the doctor said that there is something in her breast that can be cancerous. They’ve already consulted different doctors regarding her health situation and they did advice my mom to undergo biopsy because they wanted to be sure if it’s cancerous or not. Please pray with us as we ask for God’s wisdom and provision of right medicine, treatment, and the right doctor for her condition.
“… though I don’t understand His wise and loving plan… His way is perfect. God’s way is best.”
This afternoon service was really a blessing to me. God touched my heart once again and I couldn’t help but to cry out to Him for help because I know that when I said I want to be more like Him in every way, in everyday, I will be tested. my heart will be tested. God knows the desires of my heart. He knows my longings. While i was kneeling down there at the altar I did beg to God that He will spare my siblings and my future children, in repeating the same mistakes that I did. I don’t care if they’re not going to be recognized in this world, If they’re not going to be on top in their subjects, but If they are a lover of God, it’s more than I could ask for. Loving God doesn’t need an emotional feeling, but rather by obeying His Word you are already conveying the message that you love God.
last month, I made a decision. It was tough. Even though it felt so painful, but as long that I know that God is with me no sadness can ever rule over me. I am confident to say that my Redeemer is with me on this. I can feel sadness at times, but there’s a different joy inside that this world will never understand. I sometimes am weak, but God’s strength has always been helping me to go on. No one and nothing can ever give me the joy that God has given. The peace that I have when I am in His presence.
I have dreams as well. I love to dream. Just this evening, we had our dinner with our relatives at the mall and we saw a fashion show of wedding gowns! I was so overwhelmed! I started dreaming again, and then right there, I felt that sadness being controlled under God’s care. then I just prayed there silently. telling Him that I will continue to trust in Him about my future. I don’t want to create my own, it was a disaster. I don’t want to lie to my future children when they ask me how did I and their father ended up marrying each other just to share a good image to them that it was all because of God. I want to tell them with all honesty that it was REALLY God who brought us back together and not because we were so stubborn to obey our own will that we ended up marrying each other. Frequently, there were people who asked me what is my ideal age to get married. I said I don’t have and I haven’t thought about it. They though I was not interested, but I said I have already planned almost everything for my future wedding, but I just don’t have an ideal age when to get married.
The preacher today encouraged us to become a better christian and it seems so basic but it was that thing that most of us neglected as a Christian. When we we’re born again, our old life must no longer be manifested in our present life. can people say that there was a change in you? can you list down the things that you’ve given up since you got saved? natural kindness, thoughtfulness, etc., is not something that you can just rely on when it comes to screening of someone’s condition of salvation. There must be a change in the heart that will eventually affect your actions, thoughts, and way of speaking. God is not mocked. He knows if you are truly saved or not.
My brother shared something to me about a young lady who is practicing a different standard outside of church. He told her why it’s not proper for a lady to wear something that’s against the Biblical standards being preached at church, but this young lady told her that it’s her “private life.” When I heard that from my brother, my heart felt so heavy. I had a question. I shared this to my dad and asked him what does it really mean if someone said that that’s her “private life.” During my dad’s invitation for an altar call, he mentioned that if you are not a believer, you can have a private life, BUT if you are already a believer, you are already a Son of God, you already have a home in heaven, your name is already written in the Book of Life, you are now bought with the blood of Christ, you are now redeemed, you are now justified, you are now sanctified, you are now consecrated to God then YOU DON’T HAVE A SO CALLED “PRIVATE LIFE.” God owns us, He made us. Your strength, your ability, your intelligence, your beauty, your business, your work, your studies, your family, your very own life belongs to God. We must not make plans for our own. God has already done the planning. All that’s left for us to do is to seek His will and favour and to obey Him with our whole heart. Christians doesn’t have a “private life.” Stop thinking that you can still have it your own way. We, believers, should always be an example of godly living. The preacher encouraged us by sharing that a better christian is someone who rises every time he/she falls, just like King David. Don’t be drowned by the sadness, failures, insecurities, etc. Rise up again! Let’s continue to obey until He comes and find us faithful.
I would love to post verses that spoke to my heart everyday through my devotion time, but for some reason I don’t know why does sickness always find its way to me. I’ve been taking vitamins for awhile now, but I still don’t know why I’m having constant colds and because of that I’m always having a hard time sleeping at night, but God is good. He gives me enough strength to be able to read my Bible and ponder on His word right before I go to sleep and because of Him I will endure.
In the past, I thought there’s no hope for me anymore. There are things that I’ve done and I though that’s the end of God’s favour to be upon me. One of my desires is that my future children will not repeat the same mistakes that i did that brought great depression in my life. but when I read Isaiah 54:10,13, I was comforted and I cried out unto the Lord to spare my siblings as well. His kindness never fails because of His mercy on me. Then verse 13 became my cry to the Lord for my future children that the Lord will teach them of His ways and that they will love the Lord more “and great shall be the peace of my salvation.”
There are christians who doesn’t have a clear manifestation of God’s salvation. This is my prayer, especially, to those who are very dear to my heart, that the Word of God will effectively work in their lives, and also to me.
Let us all have a self examination because if you are just bothered because of what other people say and not primarily because of the Word of God, then the Word of God doesn’t have an effect in your life. Paul says, “…ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, THE WORD OF GOD WHICH EFFECTUALLY WORKETH ALSO IN YOU THAT BELIEVE.”
I’m forgiven! My sin He’ll no longer remember. How Great is the God we serve!
I made it a habit of memorizing at least one verse everyday and this is what I chose to memorize. Whatever challenge or trials I will be facing or already facing, this will be my verse for the things that my eyes can’t see yet or my understanding haven’t reached yet. God knows my fear, but it should not rule over me because God is with me. I trust that at the right time, God will uphold me and through that process He will strengthen me as I seek His face. My heart has its own desire, but my prayer is that God will not let my desire be a reality if it will not please Him.

Semester break next week and I’m not so sure I can have a break, but God is good! He helped me with my final exams and I’m very grateful for everything that He hath done. I know it’s super duper late for this. I arrived at 11pm, I think, from school and then I had my dinner. After that, I went to my parents room to have my devotion because my grandmother was listening to her favorite radio station and I needed a quiet place. Since my parents were both busy doing something in the living room, I’ve decided to stay in there room. I missed one day of my devotion so I read more than what I’m scheduled to read for today. I just want to share some verses that spoke to my heart and really convicted me with my relationship with my Saviour. For me, Happiness cannot be found in what you possess or what you’ve accomplished. If you have a list on how to be have a happy life, is God written on that list? Our hearts can never find contentment, unless our hearts have been satisfied by God first.
