The Secret Place

I found a place where I can speak to God
A lovely place where we can talk a lot
It is a place that no one can see
A secret place where its just God and me

Its a humungous room where we can talk
Large enough for us to stroll and walk
But its also small to carry around
I know its always with me when I hear it sounds

So when I'm happy or dismay
I go inside of it and I just wait
Cause I know He is inside my heart, He always stays
And again we talk, so I pray

The RH bill

I just notice lately that people, news and topics raise one issue. THE RH BILL.

People are confused on this bill and it seems going around who is against and who are favor on it, but have we tried seeing it in a different way? Have we really tried understanding what does God plans on raising up again this issue in our country?

A friend of mine blog about this in his facebook account and God revealed something to me through his blog. Right Heart Bill not Reproductive Health Bill. The issue is not the act but the heart itself.

"I do not need rules or the lack of it for that matter to dictate my morality and how I should do life. My morals are simply dictated by God's word"

my friend blog and this strikes me. Yes it is God's command and LOVE that I need to focus on not what the world dictates what is right or wrong. God is the creator of this world, we need to believe Him more than His creation, beside He knows better of us than us.

Here is the blog of my good friend and see how God revealed to him about this issue.

See the Light

And at last I see the light...

I was so grateful that I saw the light. For without it I would be still blinded and lost. The reason why I say this because of what I experience personally last week with our tour in Visayas. It is the light that made me see things the way God wanted me to see it. Realizing many things not only with people but with myself. Love and compassion for others. Understanding and patience for me. I just love being disciplined, for I knew I am loved.

And the fog has somehow lifted...

Truly a fog of bitterness and self centeredness was all around me when things sometimes doesn't go my way. I rudely complain on things when all to blame was me. It was me that made that way, me who made me feel it and its me who reacts on it. But when the light of others step inside my view range and letting me see what they see, the fog totally lifted and now I see my own heart harboring things I shouldn't have kept way long before. THANK YOU for my accountability partners.

And it's like the sky is new...

Now that fog finally gone I can see the a new sky waiting for me to gaze. New hope and new heart to love. Surely it was a new canvas to paint with. When people who loves you and God who teaches you is always at your side, there would always be a new sky to hope for. Like after a storm we always look forward for a new blue sky to see, and as you pass those storm surely you will be transformed and the new sky gives new hope for you.

And its warm and real and bright and the world has somehow shifted...
All at once everything is different now that I see You...

It is different when seeing a real thing than imagining for nothing, but this season that I'm currently experiencing is somehow different. Before I always wonder how can I see someone I don't see in my bare naked eyes but somehow God made His way to reveal Himself to me by flesh. I still don't understand it but somehow I'm seeing God with everyone. Warm, Real and Bright as ever. I remember how Moses shines after speaking with God at Mt. Sinia, this is how I see people, people how constantly attached themselves to their creator. They have made this world different by obeying and understanding the one who created them. I heard this saying," the creation will never be detached from its creator, for part of the creator is in the creation." and now everything is different for now I see God with everyone. Finally I can say I wouldn't regret seeing the light because it made my life different now that I see You.

First the Daughter now the Mother: Humbled and Honored

A good friend of mine text me earlier about what she did and what God revealed to her. Here is part of her message...

"I made some mistakes again.. I'm so hard on myself for it. I prayed for forgiveness and the Lord rebuked me. Telling me that I needed to rely on Him more not on anyone else here. To have courage and faith in Him in what I do. Grabe I'm so humbled."

As I read her message it was honoring for me. Why so? I always look up to this friend for I see a good mother image to her and a faithful Ate. Also a great colleague in our work as a volunteer. And as she message me this, it made me admire more of our Creator. How humbling it is to be rebuked by the one who made you. I mean He is a perfect God, He can always create someone as perfect as Him but He choose not to, for us to leave one portion of our live unoccupied. A space for improvement. I'm so honored to be working together with a person willing to step down and admit she has something to improve on. Made me think, I need to search my heart. I could be keeping a callous and proud heart already and not knowing it. Thank you Ate Monica. Thank you for your humbled heart so honored to work with you and your humbling child as well. Until next time as we explore God's perfect faith in us. I Love Wednesday ^__^

Life without Faith is Dead

A lot has happen this past few months. I haven't been faithful on posting my blogs since December last year. Yes I am busy and yes my season has been awfully hard lately. But God has been faithful this year. Heres a glimpse of what happen to me lately.

First a job, God has been faithful and now I'm currently helping out a friend and at the same time enjoying so much our work. An unexpected hobby, last year I was blessed to have a digital camera that I could use for my projects and day to day experience but now God has level up my so called "hobby" to an unexpected one. A friend of mine, who happens to be the creator of gave me an opportunity to join his team to be one of their photographer in their boarding event, MyLifeOnBoard is a media website whose goal is to introduce sports such as "Skim, Skate, Wake, Surf and Long Boarding" to the filipino community, such drive made me join them for rather than doing drugs why dont we put our spare time into sports like this, and now I'm about to try myself this kind of sports, dont forget to visit our website, Thank you Mike.

Next an extraordinary vacation, last week we went to climb Mt. Pulag the most extreme freezing destination I ever been through. Yes extreme for it was totally freezing, combine freezing wind, rain and strong blast of wind. We are 14 when we climb Pulag, of course were still complete when wewent back. No worry guys. This would be my first climb and surely it wont be the last. Walking through almost 2 feet path with a cliff on the left and mountain face on the right, not to mention its all muddy and slippery made our trek more exciting and fun. Together with friends we enjoy the beauty of God's craftsmanship. We hold on to each other, throw jokes, sing together and keep each other strong to survive this climb, it was a moment of revelation to us. Although we didn't make it to the summit, because of the weather, the trip wasn't a waste at all. At least now we can prepare ourselves as we plan to return to the same mountain next year. Go Team Josiah.

A lot has happen as you can see, this is just a portion of it, some I didn't bother to mention and some are just about to happen. One thing I will always remember from this season, Never think advance with God, you may think God has left you or blessed you so abundantly, but surely His promises and will never advances nor never delayed. As the old saying "Let go and Let God" I will never let go from God for as I work with Him, He will accordingly work with me.

Hebrews 11:6 (Amplified Version)
But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].

Humbled by a Child

I've been recounting all the things happen to me this past 11 months and 30 days. My victories and defeats, my adventures and misadventures, my travels and stays and all lessons that are learned and applied. But just recently I experience one big thing from a small child that I could say the very thing I was looking for an answer myself.
I would like you to meet Gabby, the very cute little daughter of my two amazing friends Ate Monica and Kuya Dennis. She is their eldest daughter and somehow we had a similarity (although technically I'm not the eldest).Last Wednesday in Teatrino at Greenhills Promenade she helped her mom volunteer in our last Wednesday service in church. Amazingly she handled her position very well. I have seen many people almost getting sweaty getting nervous on what she done and more surprisingly I was one of those people who is pretty nervous on it but she did it with calm and joy. I watch her all over the service how she handle the kids (yeah we had a little kids church upstairs that time there so makulit and cute hehe) and her "job" so called in volunteering in tech. I saw such joy and calmness in her eyes. She is so eager listening at Pastor Jayson and the rest of the gang while once in a while telling her friends to be still and quiet and do the same thing. I watch her closely as she frequently repeat her actions until God reveal to me that I've been missing the past months with my question to Him.

But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Luke 18:16

I often read this but it was that night that I got what was God has been telling me all along. You don't need to act like a child or be a child literally to obey Him. You only need to listen and have a faith like a children and attitude same as a child, patience, pride-less, eager to listen, observant, joyful and calm. As a young adult I honestly forgot to be like this, be like a child, I'm always "yeah I already know it" or "yeah I know I have to do it" but honestly I don't. Honestly Im not, I was trying to become an adult but I'm more turning to a obscure brat. That night I was so humbled by Gabby and was so repenting to God for acting immature all along. Now 2011 is coming, there are lots of lessons I need to learn more and I hope God will continue to show me that apart from Him and without His help I'm still my past.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5

My Christmas wish list

As you read the title yup this blog is for this month and as you can see its about what I wish for this Christmas season. Although I haven't entered one last month probably I consider one story that month and share it here.

Last month me and my brothers went to HK together with out mom. Although the trip made me excited and all, I didn't totally enjoyed it since half of it I got sick from food or water I took in. But one lesson I'm sure I will keep with my self since that adventure. Transformation of one self doesn't fall on one place you should be change everywhere you go.

But enough with that probably will detailed it on my next blog. For now here is my wish list for this Christmas season, although you might probably see this very dream like but hey anyone can dream right ^__^.

1. For my faith and beliefs grows not only with God but the things He has been sharing to me all year.
2. Hope I could change my view on reading stuff, I wish I could read more books than stare in my pc all day working or doing just some junk stuff.
3. For my family to be in peace and unity with God.
4. Salvation not only for my family but their extended relatives.
5. Reconciliation of my parents through Christ.
6. A partner I can share my victories and lesson of defeat in life.
7. A home for me and my family.
8. A partner for my Kuya. He is kind off old, and he can use a helping hand a kind heart in life.
9. Salvation for my friends and their families. This includes my small group happy.
10. A book set of The Chronicles of Narnia.

I wont be posting this in my facebook or multiply but I hope when you got to read this as you open other blogs that I will post in my social media sites you be inspired and right your own wish list. Remember christmas is not only about the things we want or things we need, its about Christ and what He wants for us in our lives. Why would it be called CHRISTmas if it wasn't a reminder that Jesus came for the masses to save us. Merry Christmas.
