2017 as of the moment

January.png

The last day of January is almost 2 days away and I am looking back since Day 1. I am writing this today because I had to, because if I will not it will be a never ending thought in my brain that will keep me hunted for days and nights. My heart just burst as I go on through the days of January. It has been a tough month for some of the people around me and I am so proud of them.Why? I have been in awe of how brave their hearts are and how strong they keep steady on the things and people that matters to them.

I have never been so thankful and proud of them since this year that I started realizing adult-ing stuff that is going on in my life. They might or might not read this post but it is okay, I’ll send them a letter anyway.

For those people who lost a love one. I am so proud of you for being so strong and for keeping on. I felt the sadness and grief like this a few times and I am assuring you that you will be fine in a little time. God is the Giver of life and He has already plan it out. He knows the what-s, where-s, when-s, who-s, and whys of your life. Trusting Him with it is the best decision ever and if you ever acknowledge Him to come and be the first in everything in your life then you have eternity waiting for you when your life here on earth has come to end.

For the people who are feeling so stuck with the job that they are in, the people that they love the most that they tend to forget about themselves and their own good. I thank God for your life, you have the most selfless heart that I know. You always put other people first because you don’t want to let them feel what you have felt before-always left out with nothing but yourself. I want you to remember that this year is for you, that God is unfolding things right before your eyes and I pray that you’ll never lose a gaze on the prize, for the prize is Christ. Continue being the most excellent you and exercise your right to treat and love yourself first and others second. Hoping that you will decide for yourself sometimes and let the people you love take care of themselves because in that way they will also learn.

For those people who are feeling lost after being so on fire for God for the past year.The fire must have burnt out but never  I wanted you to know that God is always there for you. Just choose Him to be first in everyday and let yourself form a habit of having conversations with God first everyday. Remember that it always start with a decision for you to back down or keep on, choose the latter. Make yourself fall in love with your Maker and appreciate things that comes on your way. Those are maybe obstacles, struggles, or what-so. God will keep you through it. Make that heart braver and more consistent in the walk that has been prepared for you. Share Him with the people around you and in that way that fire will keep on burning until it ablaze.

 

January has been a tough start for us, but God will be with us from Day 1 to Day 365 of 2017.  I appreciate your brave heart! Let’s keep going. Let us always delight ourselves in Him. ♥

Youtubers Part 1

All of us “millenials”or “young people”are hooked up with the Youtube scene. A lot of people are becoming Youtubers today like mushrooms coming out of nowhere. These are the people that are separated from the crowd. They are listed here because as for my preference, they have great content in their channel and I love those ideas that they are sharing with their viewers. And if you guys have anyone else to add, just write it down in the comments below after this post.

It started with Bethany Mota way back 2012 then the rest is history. Thanks, Beth!

A Willing Spirit

When the peace is no more

What do you do?

When the things are not going the way you plan it to be

How do you react?

When the people you need the most seem so far away from you by place and by time

How do you deal with it?

I am currently listening to this playlist and wondered what happened with me during this past months.

“Great supplicant have sought the secret place of the Most High. Not that they might escape the world, but that they might learn to conquer it.”

Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
and uphold me with a willing spirit.

Psalm 51:12

Restore

“Great supplicant have sought the secret place of the Most High. Not that they might escape the world, but that they might learn to conquer it.”

Dianne Alvarez

The busyness of life stole my joy, turned my heart of worship to a heart of performance, and replaced my stillness to hurriedness.

But the Lord said, “I will restore. I will rebuild. I will renew all things. I will replenish. I will return what the enemy has stolen. I will return you to Me. You’ve always been mine. And I am always Yours.”

So I say, “Be still my soul. Put your hope in God. Love conquers all fears. Love covers up all wrongs. Dance again. Your joy has returned. Worship the LORD with genuinenes with all your whole heart. Live for Him. Fear Him. Obey Him. Walk in His ways. Enjoy Him. Love Him. Just like before. His Word speaks to you. Oh how great to worship Him. So worship the LORD, oh my soul. Come alive dead bones. Compassion has come upon your heart again. Restoration has…

My Giving Journey

14937902_809567769145577_1643056884_n

Giving is such a word. I always felt the need to give and the urge to help someone in need. I appreciate receiving, but to give is a much more joyful thing. Trying to find time, treating someone for a good cup of coffee-tea-or food, and having something for someone during birthdays or ordinary days is such a thing for me. Sometimes I do it, sometimes I don’t. Eh. I am not a consistent giver and I failed in giving most of the time.

And for this coming days and for 2017, I choose to give more than I have to. This is a great chance to exercise our giving.

The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also  reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one of us must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all the sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.  2 Corinthians 9:6-8

 

My work is a blessing, indeed. I get to talk to people, I get to make good coffee and food, 5 days of work per week, and it is a not so stressful workplace minus the traffic. What is more fun is that our company is passionate about giving and helping all the foundations that they have partnered with.

During my recent day-off, I treated my siblings for coffee at my previous workplace.

I also did this for my stamp card, for my 2017 Giving Journal, and of course– for Real Life Foundation. Real Life Foundation helped a lot of scholars through the years and I am a witness of how great this foundation is. This made me more excited to help our company support those scholars to send them to school.

This advocacy runs until January 8 2017.

Hoping that this will extend a word for everyone who will read this post. Bonding and giving is a fun thing to do! You can do this with your friends too and start your #GivingJourney2017 together.
