Here’s a verse for you and a word of encouragement!

“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.” – Proverbs 16:9

Amen! You might be planning ahead for something right now, it may be your college course, it may be your job, your new house, your school, relationships… but don’t worry- if it is the Lord’s will, who could go against you? Just have faith, do the next right thing, and God will direct your path. Don’t be afraid, God, king of all kings, is with you!

Stressed Out… But School Hasn’t Started Yet.


School is ONE WEEK away and I am really stressed out just thinking about school work, home work, tests, exams, quizzes, friends, teachers, etc. I start to make a  mental schedule in my head every night which makes it hard for me to sleep and it’s giving me a headache! Do you guys have the same problem? Well… I found a great antidote!

Luke 10:41-42

But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”

How to Cure Stress?

  1.  Do NOT think of negative things. This is why you’re stressing out in the first place! When you think negatively, this leads you to…
  2. Worry. Now let me tell you this, worrying is a sin. How? It’s all said in Romans 14:23 Whatever is not from faith, is sin. Worry is also a type of fear and fear is the opposite of faith. No one can worry and pray at the same time – Max Lucado.
  3. Loosen up! School’s supposed to be a fun and educative experience, not stressful and boring.
  4. Let God in. He wants to be with you and help you in any possible way! Just pushing Him out of the problem… is a problem.
  5. Be content. Look around you and see, you are very very blessed. Stop focusing on the bad things.
  6. Give yourself a rest. Lay down in bed, drink some coffee, eat some cupcakes. Just to keep your mind of your problems. Mark 6:31 Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest”
  7. Talk to God. Need someone to talk to? Need someone to vent out all those negative feelings? Well, God is there for you 24/7. Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

    James 1:12

    Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.

I Had A Normal Dream… which is Weird.


[6:25 AM]

1004587_4976398575851_1279272592_n

This dream is rather different than what I normally dream about. This one, is more… normal (which is weird), cause usually my dream has a more creepy and futuristic looking place, but instead, it was my house. With the old red carpet. And instead of something eerie or scary, it was me and my family, practicing for church.

In my dream, I was sitting on the sofa with my mom while dad was on the ground playing the piano with Gab on his right side. In this dream, we were all practicing for a song at church, and there was a mobile phone floating in the thin air while it takes video of us. (the only thing unusual)

And we were all smiling… mom even slipped a few notes and went out off tune, but she just laughed. The rest of us did.

Then the most funny part was that dad… dad- did something funny. But I forgot what it was. He farted? I guess? He made a funny face? I feel so bad for loosing this bit. I hope I’ll remember it soon.

The whole reason though, why I’m up early just to share this dream with you is,

1. I want to understand the dream, to know what it meant.

2. Most of the dreams I had were sad and scary.

3. I’m feeling depressed. I’m suddenly comparing my life to others. My friends are out there having fun, while I’m… I’m lying here… on the floor, no kidding 😀 hehe wanted to joke a little, I need to have some sense in me. GOD has a way, I just have to be patient.

4. I love this. The dream to be specific. Me and my family had done it before, singing together for JESUS. And it was- I wanted to cry because I was just so emotional, but not in front of them. I love GOD so much, that He gave me such a beautiful family…

And those are the reasons why, and after writing a whole list of reasons, I realized that, (another lists of reasons coming up)

1. I am blessed.

2. I have a beautiful sister.

3. I have a family.

4. I have friends.

5. I dont know if GOD is trying to show me something with this dream, but I really do hope so.

6. My dream, must’ve been speaking of how it was like when me and my family did things together for the glory of the LORD. Why? Because that red carpet hasn’t been used, since it got all dirty and hard to clean. Though I am not a 100% sure with what my dream means, I really really do want to be with my family, doing things that would glorify GOD.

7. But then again, my dream must’ve been about how we should spend our days with CHRIST, with our family. I just couldnt help but add the fuzzy red carpet into this :D. I bought that carpet… it had a good quality when we were at the mall. Apparently, our scheduled cleaning time isn’t that early, so it got messy quick. *sheepish smile*

So, that basically wraps it up! I’m happy I had this… chat with you guys 🙂 I miss blogging, I really do. And after this, it made me want to blog again. Maybe, because I didn’t have anyone to talk to, and that I have been busy trying to be busy to even talk to GOD.

I am really really sorry Father… I’m sorry…

Can I talk to Him for a minute? I just need some time, and I thought that this is a good one. I wont be typing what I am saying to Him, it is to be heard by His ears only.

Okay, so, I’m gonna end this with a ‘see you later’? I’m not really my witty self today, its 7:03 AM now, and I couldn’t sleep. I wanna keep tying, but I gotta post this 🙂

Umm, I want you guys to pray for me though, and- there’s a lot of people I want you to pray for with me, but for safety reasons (which I rarely do, but I have to keep aware at times) I will change their names- I want you to pray for my Family (mom, dad, and sister), for the church, my Aunt and her pregnancy (her uterus has the shape of a heart, and the baby will have trouble growing), my Aunt orange and her husband, whatever their difficulties are (she wouldn’t tell), my friend Jim for feeling so alone, left out, and jealousy, and lastly my grandparents, Apoy Lolli ,who is 90+ in age, but still going strong and Nanay Mari, who is 80+ and has some problems here and there, but through our Lord Jesus Christ, nothing is impossible!

Thank you my lovlies 🙂 God bless!

Thank you Lord :)

Just wanted to thank the Lord for this lovely day! Woke up late for church but I started my day with a smile and a prayer, thanking the Lord as I go… right now I’m kind of exhausted, but I wanted to stay up for awhile just to write this before taking a short nap.

Another thing I want to thank the Lord about, is for my friend’s bully problem, the guy behind the scheme finally revealed himself and apologized. He bullied through facebook faking an account and posting real pictures of her that she hasn’t posted on facebook before. Thank the Lord that my friend took this quite well and that she continued to walk with Christ despite the conflicts that she had.

I also want to thank God for my (other) friend and her family’s visa that has been renewed, otherwise they would have to spend their time in the Philippines for I don’t know how long. Though it would be really nice for them to go back to their home country, it would be quite a shock to go there unprepared. So I thank the Lord for that.

Lastly, I would like to thank the Lord for helping me bring another soul to church and introducing her to the Lord Himself and His words. I hope that she would continue visiting and start to grow a strong relationship with Him.

THANK YOU LORD!

Pray For them and their Family…


I blogged about my Aunt’s pregnancy last week and we were so happy and blessed to hear about this. It was a big shock, especially because they have 3 other children. The eldest 17, 13, and the youngest being 8.

Well, they lost have their baby… I don’t know what had happened, but it was very saddening. Though this did hurt them badly for they lost a child, this did not stop them from keeping their strong faith in Jesus. That God always ALWAYS has a way, when there seems to be no way.

If you have the same conflict, do not be weak. Stay strong, and trust in the Lord your God. As said in Proverbs 3:5, Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. You’re not the only one… for God knows what its like to lose a child, and it didn’t happen once, nor twice, but numerous of times.

Matthew 5:4

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted

Lazerus’ P.O.V.

“Rus! breakfast’s ready!” mom yelled from downstairs. I sighed, taking one last look at the young boy in the picture. He was smiling, his grey eyes twinkling with happiness. He was so happy…

You know the last time I saw him? Everything was in slow motion. That was the worst part. I had to watch him, his fear stricken face as the car fell crashing down to the ocean. His screams muffled by the water. I had to do something. I knew I had to. I remember struggling to unstrap myself from the seatbelt, the salt water burning my eyes, but I had to see, I had to see my brother… I remember somebody grabbing me, lifting me up from the water, I was screaming, screaming even though it meant losing my breath. But it was muffled by the water… I remember falling unconscious, and I remember, before everything went black, I remember thinking, I had to get my brother…

It’s your fault your brother died. a voice said inside my head.

I ignored it… but the guilt stayed. It’s like a man trying to find his way out, only to find himself in the same spot…
