BHKJOURNAL_2017_0002: CHRISTIAN BA SIYA?

​Christian ba siya?
A common question nowadays… How can we answer that?
Let’s have some theories:
He/She is a Roman Catholic.

•Therefore, he/she is a Christian?

He/She is a Bible-believing person.

•Therefore, he/she is a Christian?

He/She is a Protestant/Baptist/Etc.

•Therefore, he/she is a Christian?

He/She is a believes in God.

•Therefore, he/she is a Christian

He/She has a personal relationship with Jesus.

•Therefore, he/she is a Christian?

Now, is there any theory here that you can consider a Law already? 🙂
You know the answer already 🙂

BHKJOURNAL_2017_00001: Thank You 2016; Welcome 2017!

In my traditional yearly counting of blessings, 2016 scores 10,489 total blessings.

173 of the total 10,489 (1.6%) are specific “YES” answers to my Prayer Requests.

To start 2017, I alreay counted 15 blessings (6 were specifics, that’s 40% ot the total, 60% were surprises).

This might be good numbers but more than the blessings, let us look at the Ultimate Blessor.

All glory, honor and praise belong to GOD.

BHKJOURNAL_2016_00009: 18 Years Ago

18 years ago, a group of friends (my classmates), asked me this question, “If you were to die today, do you know where would you go?”

I answered quickly, “in heaven!” Because I have read already in the Bible that “whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” But reality sank when they asked me a follow-up question, “Are you sure?” From that moment, I give in, I am not really sure, I just read it and put the idea in my mind without taking it to the heart.

The moment I surrender my “intellectual thinking” of eternity, the moment God reigns in my life. He became the center of everything. The intellectual became spiritual and the happiness became joy.

Today, it marks the 18th year anniversary of the moment I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. The moment I realized that more than putting eternity in an intellectual mode, it should be more of spiritual. Less of me, more of God. I am nothing but Christ gave up everything for me to have a real meaning.

18 years have passed, ups and downs surpassed, unfaithfulness even ruin some of the great plans and dreams, unfaithfulness I know hurt the Holy One but 18 years and counting, He is still faithful and just even if I am not.

Lord, thank you for being You.

All honor glory and praise belong to You.

Today, let me also lead you to a prayer similarly to the one I utter 18 years ago…

Heavenly Father . . . I acknowledge that the separation between us . . . is because of my sin . . . I confess that I have sinned . . . and have fallen far short of Your glory . . . I thank You that You sent Your Son, Jesus . . . to pay the penalty for my sin . . . I believe that He died on the cross for me . . . I believe that You raised Him from the dead . . . I am sorry for my sins . . . and I ask You to forgive and cleanse me . . . I want to turn away from everything the Bible calls sin . . . and receive You as my Lord, Master, and Savior . . . help me to love, serve, and obey You . . . for the rest of my life . . . in Jesus’ name . . . Amen!

“If you have sincerely prayed that prayer, the Bible promises that the old has gone and the new has come!”

LOST & FOUND

College of Human Sciences, Saint Louis University

Baguio City, Philippines

lf
I was walking on earth

When I saw a different place;

I went there without a purpose

Then I saw a total darkness.

 

I love to be in that place

Because there are no hindrances;

I like to be in that place

Because there are no poverties.

 

Everything became good,

Nobody is wrong;

Everybody is okay

And they don’t care.

 

I’m so happy with my life,

Whatever you do is right;

The people will not rebuke you

And they will make you happy.

 

But one day I realized something;

They said I have a problem.

They just looked at me and laughed,

They even leave me alone.

 

I said to myself: I was lost,

I don’t have any hope;

But in the dark I saw a light

And I follow that special guide.

 

When I touched that firing light,

It warmed me but I was not burned;

That was the greatest gift I’ve found,

It came from heaven above.

BHKJOURNAL_2012_0016: Apat na Buwan ng Pagmamahalan…

July 2012, nagsimulang magka-kuwentuhan ang ilang mga guro dahil meron silang “dina-diagnose” na hindi nila lubos akalain na lahat pala sila ay iisa lang ang dina-diagnose.

Nagpatuloy ang kanilang mga gawain sa mga sumunod na araw. At noong July 23, 2012, nagkasama-sama sila sa isang classroom at nagkaroon ng biruan na nauwi sa transformation nila “Hello Kitty at Barbie.” Dahil sa biruang ito, tinawag nilang “Barbie Team o Barbz of Directors” ang kanilang grupo. Pinagtibay pa ng isang “Barbie stuff” ang pag-confirm sa pangalan ng grupo.

Pero dahil sa may mga lalaking kasama sa grupo, pinalitan din nila ang kanilang pangalan sa #TeamBarbz na siya naman nilang napagkasunduan.

Lumipas ang ilang mga araw, sa pagsabay-sabay nila sa lunch time at paminsan-minsang pagkain ng “street foods” lalo pang tumibay ang kanilang samahan at nagpatuloy sa kanilang pagmamahalan bilang magkakaibigan.

Marami pang pinagdaanan ang grupo at madami pang pagdaraan ang bawat isa pero isa ang tiyak na di mawawala, silang lahat ay sasamba sa iisang Panginoon.

Ngayong ika-4 na buwan ng pagkakaibigan, gusto kong batiin ang mga ka-grupo ko sa #TeamBarbz ng HAPPY 4TH MONTH! =)
