Approval

A dear customer recently opened for me an Instagram account, her voluntary act of kindness to give me a free marketing tool for my business.  It’s fun to see the orange numbers pop up.  How many likes? How many follows? How many comments? With social media the phenomenon it is today, specially in the Philippines,…

Jesus Comforts You

John 14:1-3 [ Jesus Comforts His Disciples ] “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and…

The Benefit of Not Too Much Nor Too Little

I had been trying to recall the other day the verse about wanting just enough wealth to keep following God.  Then I saw it on someone’s Facebook wall yesterday: Thank You Lord for just enough.  I want to keep clinging to You and keeping my dependence on You. Thank You for shielding me from the thousands…

Thank You, Jesus

Dear Jesus, whether you were born around April or December, I thank Your for Your obedience that even when You are in very nature God, You came to die on the cross for my sins so that I may have eternal life. No gift can ever match that. I accept You as my Savior and…

God of the Angel Armies

Ed Cash’s wife had been waking him up in the middle of the night from anxiety and fear attacks. She asked her husband to pray for her and soon after, Ed wrote the lyrics for the song “Whom Shall I Fear?” as a praise to God through the night.  He didn’t know where the lyrics came…

God Uses The Broken

In Matthew 14, there were five thousand people who needed to be fed. The disciples’ idea:  Rely on Man “Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.“ Jesus’s idea:  He can work beyond your limitations. “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” Isaiah 55:8…

You Are The Reason For Christmas

The first word that might come to mind after “Christmas”:  “merry”.  This season is associated with magical holiday settings, gastronomic festivities, gorgeous “perfect gifts”, love-and-laughter-filled family dinners.  But it’s also a time when people’s sorrow could be heightened when circumstances fall short of the world’s Christmas projected images.

Who Can I Run To?

I really liked the 80’s song by Whitney Houston,”Run to You”.
