You and Your Lists


I was browsing Facebook and one of my friends shared this. It struck me simply because I was exactly the same as described. To all God’s princesses, “You and Your List” was a good read. It made me realize that God has set apart someone for us (the best). He might not exactly be the same as we expect him to be but I pray won’t be carried away by the standards we set up and miss the blessing that’s before us.

Stay blessed everyone! 😀

Don’t assume!


I read this blog months ago and I remember some of my friends, this may answer their questions. Credits to Ms Sonja for this wonderful blog. May God bless you more!

Last week I wrote an article for Act Like A Man called, “How Not To Be A Jerk!!!” (Thanks Pastor Dennis for the catchy title :p) I was surprised at the response it generated so I decided to write a follow up. This time, it’s for the ladies! 😀

You are a masterpiece


“God doesn’t create junk! We are His masterpiece”

I run across the video of the skit guys called “God’s Chisel” (Watch here)

I wasn’t able to held back my tears because I was convicted right at the spot. When I look on the mirror, I feel displeased. I’m telling myself “Why can’t I be as pretty as her”. Comparing myself to others over and over. It exhausted me. When I’m in a group, to make myself feel that I belong, I tell white lies to please them (remember lies has no color, it  is still a SIN, a poop is a poop irregardless of what color it is).

Today, once again I heard God telling me “I love you”. I have fallen into sin many times and disappointed God a zillion. I let Him down. But again He told me “You are not the one holding me up, in this relationship I hold you up”.

I learned that I have to chisel the dead weights in my life.

That unnecessary anger I have, Lord calm me.
That I shouldn’t look onto others but look above, how God sees me.
That I shouldn’t try to please others but to please God.
That I shouldn’t look for false romance but on God’s love for me.

I know God has pleasing plans for you and me, a bright future. All we have to do is to step up in faith and obey so we can see His pleasing and perfect will for us. Thank you Lord for reminding me once again that I am your daughter and we are Your original masterpiece.

As the Skit Guys say:

I AM God’s ORIGINAL MASTERPIECE and so were you!

Now say this with confidence:

<Insert your name> is God’s original masterpiece!

“I’m confused.”


A good and timely read 😉 Thanks to Ms. Sonja! Visit her blog at sonjiacalit.com

Recently, I have received a few messages asking similar questions, so I have decided to write this in the hopes of answering them all at once 🙂 ha! The questions have  looked like these:

What if you don’t assume but you meet this guy na kahit wala namang ginagawa e… I don’t know…

I really like him, and we’ve been great friends but just recently I’ve noticed a change in the way he treats me. We used to spend a lot of time together but now, even in the presence of our friends, he rarely speaks to me or notices me… What’s up with that? Should I subtly encourage him to pursue me or should I just let it go? He has all the qualities I’ve been praying for… We are both students.

He is my friend, and he treats me in a ‘special’ way, and even talks to me…

PURE?


“Anytime you can be like them but they can never be like you anymore. They are the ones lost. You have something that they can no longer have”


Its funny how I heard a conversion on the other side of my office wall. The hot topic? Maricar Reyes and Richard Poon’s wedding. And so, the guy was asking the girl. If you have a partner who has a previous sex scandal, would you still marry him or her? The guy answered his question himself saying “Me, I can’t because it will haunt me for the rest of my life especially for a girl that had it first with some other guy” The girl on the other hand said, “To me it depends, They say Maricar was so lucky with Richard, I think they are both lucky and to think the scandal happened when they were in college. Maricar has improved a lot, she became a good actress after that. And that issue died down” The guy laughed and sarcastically added “And it’s funny that it was their first kiss in the wedding, can’t imagine having a sex scandal then to be kissed for the first time?” The girl agreed.

I respect others’ opinion. We have differing views. It made me realize that only God can change a person. From being a sinner to a renewed one. “..the old is gone is a new has come, In Christ we are new creations”. Only God can change a heart of the person and forget the past and go on. Maricar and Richards story is a miracle itself. Something not everyone can understand and can be misinterpreted.

I’m also guilty of this.

To all the women, being pure is not only in the body but also emotionally. Do not invest in relationships just for fun or to go with the trend. You say, nothing happened between us anyway. Its the memory that I’m saying.The time you spent with them.

For those who tell you that you’re a virgin and you should be ashamed of it. Think about this, “Anytime you can be like them but they can never be like you anymore” They are the ones lost. You have something that they can no longer have.For the guys who asks you to do it before marriage, break up with them. If they can’t honor you now they will also not honor you in the future.

Honoring your partner can be done in many ways. Kissing is so normal nowadays so its not new. To some people or should I say most of them find it weird if you say that you had your first kiss on your wedding. Wrong mentality brought by how the world goes not how God wants it to be. Some find it corny, unusual, weird or whatever. But they can’t bring to say that they were actually amazed. That they were not able to control their feelings like that. That its not ordinary. Aren’t the things unusual in the world are usually the things that we should be doing?

 

It’s a battle out there but the greater battle is within us (especially when a lot of your friend are doing it and you are the only one standing)
It is also a struggle for me and I admit I can’t do it alone. We need God and the people around us.
We should surround ourselves with Godly people who we can seek for advice and pray for us and more than anything else, its our continuous communication with God that can help us make it through. Its a rough road to be pure in heart body and mind but its a paradise out there at the finish line. Take charge my brothers and sisters. It is hard I know. But the feeling of having endured it, not dissolving with how the world flows but resolving is much more fulfilling.

If you are tempted, don’t. Don’t think that regret has a cure. Be sure to stay pure.

I am not telling it only to you but also to myself as well. Be sure to stay pure.

Let’s do our best and pray for our partner and wait patently and actively. Be sure to stay pure.

Let’s honor God with our mind and body. Be sure to stay pure.

If you still aren’t sure.
