Thanks to You…

Thank YOU for hearing my transgressions all day and all night long…
Thank YOU for listening to my cry when I ask for mercy in my desperate times…
Thank YOU for setting me free from the bondage I was in before…
Thank YOU for letting me praise YOUR Name freely wherever I step my foot on…

I give gratitude whenever YOU say YES to my prayers and petitions…
I appreciate whenever YOU say NO to my requests that are not really meant for me and will not even lead to give YOU glory…
I really want to give THANKS whenever YOU say WAIT as YOU plot a better plan for me…

Right now, things are not flowing my way but it is fully flowing YOUR way…

There is one thing YOU have spoken, two things I’ve heard; that YOU O GOD are strong and YOU O LORD are loving (Psalm 62:11-12)…
Thank YOU for being my strength and for loving me unconditionally…

LORD, I just want to say I LOVE YOU!

I want to put poems in my notebook…
I want to do encode blogs in my on-line diaries…
I want to write songs from my heart…
I want to lift my hands in worship…
I want to utter praises through my lips…
I want to honor YOU with my life…
I just want to be with YOU always…

My:
LORD, Savior, Master, Boss, Coach, Editor, Songwriter, Scriptwriter…

My:
FATHER, BEST FRIEND AND EVERYTHING

Truly, I can say once again that I am completely YOURS!
I have found my identity in YOU alone…
Right now I am re-assured of this: I KNOW WHO I AM!

LORD, in everything I will give YOU praise!
In trials and troubles, I’m going to praise YOU!
In laughter and leisure, I’m going to praise YOU!

I will give my best shot to bring glory and honor to YOUR Name!

An infinite THANKS TO YOU!

First Fireworks in November

0701FireworksBefore the month begin, I am already searching for jobs, passing resumes and praying to GOD about it. And since 2007, I lost jobs during August and gain one whenever November entered the picture…

Is the “magic” of November still there? I hope so…

A lot of opportunities came and some of them I grabbed but sad to say, I did not pass in some of them and in some, I missed the opportunities by not coming to the appointment and some jobs are not really meant for me…

Last Sunday, after watching This Is It, I bought Midland Courier, set my goals and end up organizing my day-to-day activities including application on-line and setting appointments for Small Groups and other businesses…

Tuesday, I received a text message that I will have an aptitude test in one of the call centers on Thursday. So, I still went around, look for other opportunities but again, it’s not for me…

Come Wednesday, I saw my e-mail that I am supposed to report that day… I missed another opportunity and there were other opportunities too that I missed…

Thursday came, I tried to negotiate about the misunderstanding in schedule, so they allow me to take the exam during the day…

During the exam, 6/10 score would be considered, I scored 6… I almost slip the opportunity again but during the re-take, I scored 10/10 and gain a fast passing rate during the typing exam… So, I was asked to come back in the middle of the night for my Initial interview…

Before, I went back… I tried to get some rest but I can’t sleep, I just went to the comfort room, bow down before Him and said, “LORD, be glorified in everything that I will do… Be with me in this endeavor…” Then, went out full of energy…

When I came back, I saw 4 other guys with me waiting for our client interview after our initial interview (5/18 people applied in the afternoon – 5 of us are men and we’re the only 5 who are still standing during the night). Actually, I almost fail the initial interview as I was nervous that time with the cold breeze outside added to my agony but the manager says, she will give me a chance…

After waiting for 30 minutes, it’s my turn… We talked with the client and we had a good conversation… In the end, all of us passed and we just need to process the requirements needed so we could start our training already…

What I have learned?

One again, I have learned about being HUMBLE… When you say “GOD, I am weak. I can’t do this… You’re the only one who can help me through this one… I give my full trust in YOU, be my strength.”

Three times that I almost slip with the opportunities but three times GOD spared me from failing. Now, the job is just waiting for me to finish some requirements and we will get to it…

I went home with a big SMILE in my face, breathing so well and shared tears of joy with my Creator…

Thank you so much to all who prayed for me, who encouraged me and who inspired me! =)

More importantly, to GOD be the glory! =)

This is It

michael-jackson-this-is-it-movie-posterLast night (Nov.8), I watched “This Is It” of Michael Jackson in Cinema 3 of SM City Baguio with Sally, Yana and Tania (it was my third movie with Sally, second with Yana and first with Tania)…

We saw how MJ showed his love to his audience and now I know why he was loved by so many because of his gentleness in and out of the stage… His co-workers loved his attitude when it comes to work – he’s really all out!

Last night, I also realized that as MJ put his 100 percent or some more percentage in performing or even in rehearsals, we should also do the same in our lives. Whether we are at work, classroom, home or anywhere, we should give our best shot.

It doesn’t matter if it is just a rehearsal or preparation – we should still give our performance level even in that situation.

Like what I have said in my other blog, when we asked for blessings, are we really ready to receive it?

In that supposed to be MJ’s final curtain call concert, This Is It, it’s like you’re watching him performed live during the rehearsals. You can feel the energy, the excitement, the charisma even from the very start.

He might not be able to perform at the grandest stage of his career but the rehearsals and the movie showed that he really left a great legacy in the world of stage. As he says, “Love lives forever” and so his attitude.

Lastly, I just want to challenge every one to give our best shot in everything that we do. If we are not yet in the main event ofour lives, let us do a performance level even in our practices, training, rehearsals or whatever you call it as a preparation for our grandest stage. If we do, we know when that main event comes, we will still be on our top shape and leave a legacy on stage that can “BREAK-A-LEG!”

Glorify GOD by giving your best shot!

THIS IS IT! =)

Getting Started! =)

As I start my journey here in wordpress, I just want to share the Getting Started in the One-2-One booklet in my paraphrased version. =)

S – Stop trusting in yourself for salvation and start fully trusting GOD in that…

T – Turn away from the what the Bible called sin…

A – Attend a Bible study (small group) to help you grow with your new relationship with GOD…

R – Read and obey what the Bible is saying…

T -Tell others of the new life you have experience…

This is not the exact things that were written in the One-2-One booklet but the essence is the same! =)

As I have started to be a blogger in wordpress, I also want to glorify GOD and start it right…

I will post some of my chosen blogs here that I already published in the other sites that I have…

More blogs to come as I get started! =)
