Thankful for…

Do you ever take the time to thank God for all that He gives you? The Bible is filled with reasons and occassions to thank the Lord…

Thanksgiving 2016 is here, not many months back, only the Lord knew if this day would come for me. I do thank You Lord Jesus for working in my life beginning with my wife, our children from the oldest to the youngest, our grandchildren, family and church family whom You have used to express the beauty of Your holiness and faithfulness.

Yes, another year passed, You O Lord for these whom you have used in my life! Thank You God for…

my lovely wife, whom You used to nurture me back from thick and thin…

Psalm 52:9 I will thank You forever, because You have done it. I will wait for Your name, for it is good, in the presence of the godly.

What now?

What do you do when you are in dire straits? A place we call “between a rock and a hard place.” When trying times hit you, when rain pours without letting up…do you? orrr…do you do?

1. NOTHING!
How hard is it to figure this one out? Simply do not act. Never make a decision when cobwebs are in your mind. When we put things in our hands, the likelihood of making matters worst is highly probable.

Sit things out. Take slow, deep breaths. Allow your nerves to settle. Separate yourself from all forms of noises. You will be the wiser for it.20130806-153830.jpg
Therefore, since these things cannot be denied, you ought to be quiet and do nothing rashly.” Acts 19:36

2. PRAY!

Most of the time, praying is the last thing on our mind when we occupied with worries. We are thinking of the next step, how to do things, or where to go.100_7642

As hard as it can be at times, praying is the best weapon we can wield in times of doubt. To pray at all times is the one discipline we all tend to disregard but needs to be our best defense. Regardless of your situation, talking to God about your present chaos, confusion, struggle or whatever you find yourself into, is the best move to make.

For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You, In a time when You may be found; Surely in a flood of great waters, They shall not come near him.” Psalm 32:6

3. BE!

Being still is not a usual affection for us. We come into this world expected to make noise. A newborn’s first encounter with the world is not a gentle welcome, but a slap on the butt. Crying is the first sign of life.

Noise becomes the norm. Action seems to be the answer for everything. The days of quiet strolls, leisurely walks in the park, weekend picnics with friends, Sundays with family, these are slowly coming to an end. Yet, it is in thoughtful exercises that our minds are sharpened. Being, is a lost art.

…In returning and rest you shall be saved; In quietness and confidence shall be your strength. But you would not….” Isaiah 30:17

4. WAIT! Silently. God who began a good work in you will complete what He started. He doesn’t rush, He is the Owner of time. What is your hurry?
Wait
My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation is from Him.” Psalm 62:5

Grace like Rain – 08/07/12 Part 2

Lesson Learned: For it is God who is enabling you both to will and to work according to His good pleasure (purpose). Do everything without arguing and grumbling that you maybe as light and shining stars in the darkness.

“…that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead.”
Phil 3:10-11

There is no other joy that can equal when our Heavenly Father uses me to be salt and light in this world we call life. To be privileged to share the beauty of sharing the Gospel of His love.

Dear family,

Today is a no school day. The rain hasn’t let up and the forecast for Friday is there will be 5 storms coming our way again. The flooded areas of Metro Manila seem to be pictures of third world countries, it is almost surreal for me to be here. I have no regrets but a simple and quiet joy knowing what is written in His book, “He who began a good work in me will be faithful to complete it”…I thank you Leilani for your encouragement to me, I got teary-eyed reading the E-card you sent to me today, which I didn’t get to open till 30 minutes ago…

Yesterday was a full day! It was delightful to get my feet wet teaching children again. I had thought that my children’s ministry days are over but not so according to my Father. It isn’t over until He says it is over! I was glad to step into it knowing it is He who had orchestrated the whole thing. You are right to say that He is preparing us for the “beyond what we can think, dream or imagine” dimension of His love. God is truly great!

We had the devotional study on 1Samuel4 last night in the house. It was so nice to be around the sisters who has the love for our Father. We shared so much that we perhaps have extended our usual time. I had offered them the opportunity to have a monthly women’s prayer sleep-over while God allows me to be here and I want to ask you if that will be alright with you. My heart goes out to sharing to them the value of intercessory prayer and I am hoping that they will truly be blessed to experience a life of prayer, for others more than themselves. Lyn did a wonderful lesson on the chapter. Susana did the prayer at the end and I volunteered to write the prayer requests and of course, I did share some ears of corn. I was blessed too much I didn’t take a shower!

I taught Filipino, can you believe it? Everything became a review for me as we learned about subjects, predicates, conjunctions and clauses. I had to ask them what the words in Tagalog are in the English language, so I can be sure about the lesson. It was a lot of fun and I got to teach, the 4th graders only, at least for now, how to pray in sign language. The 5th and 6th graders I did twice, so all together I had 5 classes with just a lunch break! Dear God, teachers need a lot of prayers for what they do….and a lot of them are having health issues…

Please be in prayer for the staff of Christianhood Learning Center in Dasmarinas, Cavite; for the whole of the Philippines that I may be used for His Glory and that we may go obediently where the Holy Spirit leads us during this rainy season of His grace.
