“ No matter how much you say you trust God, if you’re upset all the time, then you’re not really trusting Him. ”

─ Joyce Meyer ─

Praising God in the storm.

THIS MIGHT HELP YOU.

You may be experiencing a difficult situation right now and you may be losing your hope. You may think that you are hopeless and that no one cares for you. You may be thinking right now that there is no solution to your problems and that you may think that the best thing to do is to give up. But I will tell you this, I have experienced that, I have felt what you are feeling right now, maybe not literally but in a way we share the same sentiment. I also thought of giving up, especially my faith in God because it is really hard keeping it. At one time I also thought of sleeping wishing not to wake up anymore because life is too hard to live. I also wondered why God won’t answer my cries for help, I also thought that I was alone in my struggle.

Yes, I also wondered how long will this storm test me? I asked myself why is God so quiet in the midst of all these troubles. Literally, I was like a crazy person during those days of personal trials. I didn’t know what to do, where to turn to because God seemed so distant. I cried out to Him but it felt like the sorrow won’t leave me alone. I was so bothered by my past sins that I didn’t realize I was magnifying it that it caused me so much pain and desolation. Honestly, I was blinded by my sin that I didn’t see the grace of God. I was so depressed and so angry with myself that time. I was robbed of my joy and peace. I was so devastated plus the fact that the Devil discourages me by suggesting evil thoughts and lies in my mind. My whole body was trembling because I feared that the Lord may not forgive me. But that was one of the lies of Satan. I was so consumed by my fear that I forgot the word of God, His grace and His never-ending mercy.

I really thought there was no way out. I certainly thought of giving up but the image of it brought tears to my eyes. I can’t think of a life without God, it was like nothing, just odd nothingness. I remembered crying so hard during those days. I can’t even contain my agony. I wanted God. I really needed His help.

I still prayed to God. I still praised Him even though my mind and my body doesn’t want to. I prayed to Him so hard every moment of discouragement. I poured out to Him everything that burdens me, all my anxieties, my frustrations. I confessed and repented every sin I could remember. I asked forgiveness every spare moments. My mind was restless, I didn’t know what to do.

But as always, after the storm comes a new beginning. There’s a rainbow always after the rain. God is faithful. When He told me that He will never leave me nor forsake me, He never did leave me alone nor forsake me. His righteous right hand uphold me during those times. He was quiet because He is testing my faith.

… because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. (James 1:3)

I prayed to Him one of those nights to help me trust Him and to put away my fears and to help me forgive myself because He already did. God is still good to me. I also remembered praying to Him to not let go of me because I was losing my grip on His hand. And so He did, He kept my hand firmly in His and by it, He showed what AGAPE LOVE is. Jesus is my Savior. That’s the truth for by experience, it is really evident. During those difficult times, I can recall myself crying out to Jesus to save me and He did. Obviously, I am not here writing for you if He has not saved me in that storm. He is indeed my Savior and yours too. God showed a way out. And that way is Jesus. The only way. Yes, sometimes God allows certain things to happen to your life, not to harm you but to shape you the way He wanted to. 

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)


And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.  For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified;those he justified, he also glorified. (Romans 8:28-30)


God seemed distant because He doesn’t want me to rely on emotions because relationships that rely on emotions are shallow. I worship Him deepest when I trust Him in times of troubles. He may not answer quickly our cries for help but He knows what He is doing. He can’t make mistakes because He is God. He has always the right timing. He first let me learn lessons from my experience and then He helped me out. He is a great God. His understanding is unfathomable. He can still make good things out of our worst experiences, our mistakes and even our sin. He is a loving God. Our great teacher. God can use those things to teach us good things even if Satan and other people meant it for bad.

Don’t lose hope in your darkest hours. It is an opportunity to let go and let God. You don’t know, maybe God will use your circumstances to show how great He is and His love for you.

God is readying all of us for a great mission. He may test our faith while we are running the race He set for us. But the testing of faith indeed produces patience. And whenever you resist the temptation to give up, it produces endurance. Whenever you feel like giving up, treat it as a compliment because Satan is tempting you because he is so afraid of what you can do for God. Always remember that it is God who holds your future, He is the One to trust your life with, not anybody else.

Don’t forget that if God loved you yesterday, He surely loves you today and always will in the future. Remember God’s unchanging nature. He gave His Son’s life for you! That is the greatest proof of God’s love.

God bless you. GOD IS LOVE.

Thank God in all circumstances.

What else is there if we don’t have Christ in our life? I can’t even think a life without Jesus, ‘cause there is none. Don’t let the enemy rob your joy and peace from the Lord. The reason why you are being persecuted inwardly is that the enemy is so afraid of what you can do for God. All he does is steal, kill and destroy. He knows exactly what trips you up! And he will use that against you to destroy your faith in God. You have to be familiar with his ways. You have to trust God during your darkest times. Surely, God will have you a way out.

God bless you.

Be an over-comer!!!

Be brave! Even when you don’t understand why you are facing different kinds of problems, even when if it doesn’t make sense. Trust in the Lord!!! Don’t give up my dear, give all your burdens to the Lord our God. Praise Him in all circumstances. HE will always be there for you because He loves you, if HE doesn’t, He wouldn’t give His Son’s life for you. Don’t ever think that God will love you less when you confess a terrible sin because He is greater than our mistakes and even our sins. Don’t lose hope ‘cause I don’t. And don’t even think of taking your own life because of hopelessness, that wouldn’t help you in any way. Problems and circumstances may be too big but God is greater and nothing is too hard for Him. 

When my hope is gone

When the fear is strong
When the pain is real
When it’s hard to heal.

When my faith is shaken
And my heart is broken
And my joy is stolen


God I know that You lift me up
You never leave me searching…

Find You on my knees - Kari Jobe

God will lift us up and is able to save us from whatever we’ve been going through. You can overcome whatever it is because you have God. God bless you dear followers!

Light of the World.

Light of the world.

Now I finally understand why in Christ, no one will ever walk in the darkness. As I read the Bible, it’s like every dark corner in my life is being spotted by a glaring light. I felt so ashamed when I come to realize how sinful I am and how terrible I am before God. I got so discouraged of course, I can’t even deny it because God knows I’ve done terrible things and I can’t describe how sorry I am. I felt the urge to give up, I don’t know what to do, I thought there was no hope for me.

…………………..

I almost cried out of sheer guilt. I hated myself, so much. I can’t even describe how disgusted I am with myself. I don’t even know if God can still forgive me after all. This, I think, is the darkest time of my life. I can’t think any more darker than this. I lost all my strength to hold on. It felt like every part of me pushes me to give it all up. It even came to my mind that the Lord have abandoned me and left me behind. That thought robbed me of my joy and peace. You see, I don’t even know if God is just testing my faith or what. I don’t have a clue, I’m thinking its just me and my problem. 

……………………………..

I’m publishing this so you’ll know that even Christian still faces a big problem. And that you are not alone in the struggle. Right now I’m still waiting for God’s answer, for His solution. ‘Cause I know I can’t save myself from this situation, only He can save. I know in my heart that He is the solution and I trust Him that He will get me out of this. I know I can’t solve this, but He can. 

I want to encourage you. I want you to trust Him. ‘Cause I will. God bless you. Let us not lose hope because in God, there is always hope and He has a purpose behind our every problems.

Find You on my Knees by Kari Jobe

Trouble chasing me again
Breaking down my best defense
I´m looking
God I´m looking for your

Weary just won´t let me rest
And fear is filling up my head
I’m longing
God I´m longing for you
But I will

Find you in the place I´m in
Find you when I´m at my end
Find you when there’s
Nothing left of me to offer you
Except for brokenness

You lift me up
You never leave me thirsty
When I am weak
When I´m lost and searching
I find you on my knees

So what if sorrow shakes my faith
What if heartache still remains
I’ll trust you
My god I´ll trust you
'Cause you are faithful
And I will

Find you in the place I´m in
Find you when I´m at my end
Find you when there’s
Nothing left of me to offer you
Except for brokenness

You lift me up
You never leave me thirsty
When I am weak
When I´m lost and searching
I find you on my knees 

When my hope is gone
When the fear is strong
When the pain is real
When it’s hard to heal.

When my faith is shaken
And my heart is broken
And my joy is stolen
God I know that you lift me up
You never leave me thirsty..

Find you in the place I´m in
Find you when I´m at my end
Find you when there’s
Nothing left of me to offer you
Except for brokenness

You lift me up
You never leave me thirsty
When I am weak
When I´m lost and searching
I find you on my knees.

Find You on my Knees.

I always get emotional every time I listen to Kari Jobe’s Find You on my knees. Yeah, I have been a sinner since birth and I am very thankful to Jesus Christ for saving me, maybe that’s the reason why. And maybe because I am facing a lot of troubles right now and God is my only refuge. Yes, I cry most of the time. It’s my way of unloading emotions that I can no more handle. I love listening to worship songs. It makes me think and reflect on the goodness of God. When going gets tough, I know God will never leave me on my own. For he promised the He will never leave me nor forsake me. He is God and I cannot doubt that. What I only hope now is for me to trust Him more. Please pray for me my dear followers.
