->because I can’t think of a nice title for this random post of mine..

Ngayon lang ulit ako magbo-blog in Tagalog (or Taglish).  Madalas ko ‘tong gawin dati sa Multiply account ko. Puro kwento lang. Medyo nawalan na nga dati ng silbi yung journal ko kasi dun lang ako nagkekwento ng mga kung anu-anong nangyayari sa buhay ko, lalo na nung college student pa ko.

Hmm. Feeling ko ngayon hindi ako basta-basta makapagshare online. Continue reading

the ultimate reward

For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. But if I live on in the flesh, this will mean fruit from my labor; yet what I shall choose I cannot tell. For I am hard pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. –Philippians 1:21-23, NKJV

 

Our lives, if we let the Spirit truly direct it, have two advantages. One is while we’re still alive and if we’re living in God’s holiness, righteousness, and living out His words and commandments, we can do more things for the Lord. Second is that after living according to His will and word, we then have the chance, finally, to be with the Lord. I think the greatest reward we could ever receive is to be finally with the One who created us. Be with the One who has forever truly loved and known us, since the beginning of time. Be with the One who has called us, though we haven’t seen Him, but because we live by faith, we know Him, we love Him. We believe Him whom we haven’t seen. That’s the ultimate reward we could ever have. To meet Him finally.

the Word of God

For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. (1 John 5:3)

For God is the King of all the earth; Sing praises with understanding. (Psalm 47:7)

read-the-bible-throughRealization 02: The Word of God

NOTE: this is like a continuation of the previous post; thus the first verse connecting to the love of God :)

In worship, I believe that it is essential that the worshiper is knowledgeable in God’s Word. Not just knowledge, but passion and desire in studying His Word. One must dig deeper into God’s wisdom and understanding. A worshiper must also know the attributes of God— who He is, and what He does– and His promises and revelations through His Word. So I believe that it’s important to familiarize (NOTE: not to take for granted;  we know that “knowledge puffs up, but love edifies” [1 Corinthians 8:1]) oneself in the Bible. Continue reading

all reasons fade away…

3905086_f260Father God, thank You for Your love… I thank You, for You love me inspite of my weaknesses, limitations, frailty, difficult behavior, even sometimes in the shallowness of my mind… You love me enough to rebuke me and discipline me, and always remind me that what had revealed in me about You and Your words are true and faithful, because You are True and Faithful. You never change, You are infinitely good and kind, faithful and merciful, gracious and loving. You even hear my faintest cry, every drop of sigh, every fall of tear. You really love me, and there’s no need to prove how much You love me. There are so many ways and reasons to explain and show why and how You love me; still all reasons fade away, because the reason You love me is too deep to measure and behold. Glory, glory, glory to the only King and Lord of my life! Jesus I love You! Father God I love You! Holy Spirit I love You! Your love is a fire that never dies out, a vehement fire that’ll never be put out.

Father, teach me how to really worship You, in spirit and in truth; how to worship You the way You want. Not the way I want, but the way You want.

the Love of God

Last month I decided to social media fast.. I deprived myself from opening my Facebook and Twitter for seven days, and dwell in the wisdom and revelation of the Lord. Though seven days didn’t actually mean seven topics, but God is good and gracious that He let me realized five topics during those days.

REALIZATION 01: Love of God (and Love for Him)heart-gsz

Actually I didn’t write something about this, because during that day I expressed personally my love to God, to my Father, to my Abba (I didn’t write them down, because I’m really talking with Him as if He was in front of me at that time). He led me into various passages about His love, but first in the power of His grace and forgiveness over my faults and sins. Continue reading

Our names will define who we are, or who and what we will become. So it’s important that we know the meaning of our names.

For instance, my real name’s meaning is ‘pleasing‘ (got from this site). It’s a color too, which is a mixture of black and white. When used in a phrase or sentence, e.g., gray areas, it denotes a term of having uncertainties. Well, I don’t want to have uncertainties in my life. I want full assurance, especially of my destiny.

I have blogged about new names before; that my mentor gave me a new one: Rahmony. Not really a tricky or creative name: just interchange the first letters, and voila! It means harmony. Ahaha~ My mentor wanted me to be in harmony, in unity with others, especially with those in the church. Actually I sort of dislike that name, because it sounds a lot more like Ramon. Waah. But then, he (my mentor) calls me by that name sometimes. Haha. Continue reading
