Posted in Shared Post (Excerpts)


Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

Genesis 44:18-21, 23-29; 45:1-5

Psalm 105:16-17, 18-19, 20-21

Matthew 10:7-15

Freely you have received; freely give.

Matthew 10:8

Giving is an act in which you are sharing part of what you have to someone. It is by giving that will show how selfless we are just to make someone happy and fulfilled. Giving is a choice which aims to make someone happy. Happiness that we also aims that will last until eternity. That chain might be never-ending and will spread throughout the world.

In this world where everyone want to acquire and receive more even its not due to them, very often we can encounter someone who will really freely give without expecting anything in return. It’s sad but true.

Actually I have read that there were three kind of givers. The first one is an unconditional giver: the one who will give anytime, anywhere without expecting anything in return. For this type of person, he gives naturally as he believe that giving is a way of life. The second one is the conditional giver: the one who will give because he’s thinking that something will be given back to him or credited to him when gives. While the third one is someone who gives when we was being asked and willingly wants to give. This person needs to be asked for him to help. Among these three, what kind of giver are you?

Dear God, thank you always and may I naturally give to your people to prove them how great and good my God is.

Love lots,

Genesis 41:55-57, 42:5-7, 17-24

Psalm 33:2-3, 10-11, 18-19

Matthew 10:1-7

Because the famine was severe everywhere.

Genesis 41:57

Famine. In my perspective, for today’s generation this does not refer only to the basic needs like food and water but as well as our spiritual need. We burden too much on working to have these needs to the point that we forget that there is God who can and will provide our needs without even asking them. He alone is the source of all our needs according to his will.

But this famine is only on temporary state if we allow God to enter in our lives and we turn back to Him. But this decision is only upon us as there were lots of temptations in our daily lives that compel us on living a worldly life that was been a new culture already. That which, morals were bypassed, relationships were neglected, and humans were being used to get what the influential and powerful people wants.

May we wake up on this practices and live our life to the will of God despite of our willpower. We have to seize our life to serve His people to prove them how great and good God is.

Dear God, thank you always for bountifully giving my needs without even asking them.

Love lots,

Genesis 32:23-33

Psalm 17:1, 2-3, 6-7, 8, 15

Matthew 9:32-38

But the Pharisees said, “It is by the prince of demons that he drives out demons.”

~Matthew 9:34

Envy and even more than that is what the Pharisees might be thinking and feeling that made them say and act against Jesus despite of the miracles and good deeds he has done through healing, driving out demons and bringing back to life the dead people.

On defense though He doesn’t needed to, Jesus would argue that if He drives by the power of demon prince isn’t it going against with your team? In which a certain group that fight against each other would mean that they will fall down and scattered.

We all know who Jesus is. And as someone who believes on Him as Savior, we just kept our belief on Him in spite of the worldly temptations that we are encountering every single day of our lives. We may put our faith on Him as He is the way, the truth and the life.

Dear God, thank you for this day and saving me from my sins though I don’t deserve it.

Love lots,

Genesis 28:10-22

Psalm 91:1-2, 3-4, 14-15

Matthew 9:18-26

She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.”

~Matthew 9:21

The divinity of Jesus made this woman kept her faith on Him that she thought that just by touching Jesus’ clock, she will be healed.

Nowadays, some of us also want this miracle to happen. Every now and then we have wishful thinking to that good days is yet to come. That problems and struggle that were going through will be ending soon. But unluckily, there were times that the hardship were getting harder and worse. And it seems that it will be on us until the end of our life to the point that others will commit suicide or crime.

If and only if we believe that Jesus is with us always and that He will give rest on our hardship despite that we will not touch his cloak, we get healed, we’ll be getting better and we’ll be happy. Just believe on Him and keep the faith. We may not see or feel Him yet He is just there, call on Him.

Dear God, thank you. May I always believe, trust and put my faith on you.

Love lots,

Ephesians 2:19-22

Psalm 117: 1, 2

John 20:24-29


You are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household.

~Ephesians 2:19

Some of us would think that we are not enough or ready to be part of God’s family or to serve him because we look into ourselves as undeserving may be due to insecurities, inexperience or sinfulness. But we should believe and trust that no matter who we are, God still and always love, forgive and guide us in every path we take.

With this, we will be the cornerstone of His kingdom, we will be the source of joy and strength of his people and let us continue to prove them how good and great God is. Let us lead the way in any possible way we can.

Dear God, thank you for everyday blessing you have given to us. Keep on loving, guiding and forgiving us.

Love lots,

2 Kings 4:8-11, 14-16
Psalm 89:2-3, 16-17, 18-19
Romans 6:3-4, 8-11
Matthew 10:37-42

Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.
~Matthew 10:39

Beyond our comprehension and prayers, God always gives us the best in our life. It may not be the total package of what we desire for yet we are all blessed with graces and mercy that only God can give us without cost and expectations.

There were also times that we want to secure our position, power or influence. We want to be on top. We want to have everything that we want – the newest, biggest, and grandest things that world is advertising on us. But getting these things, there were also sacrifices and conflict against our values and attitudes. Though, for some its not applicable.

Whether we are up and down, we may not forget to thank God as He alone blessed us those things that we have. Things that make us happy and satisfied temporarily. Cause, even just Him alone, we are already blessed and complete.

Dear God, thank you for all the blessing and graces that you continuously giving me without me asking them. May you continue to guide and bless me to serve more of your people and to prove them how great and good You are.

Love lots,

Genesis 18:1-15
Luke 1:46-47,48-49,50,53,54-55
Matthew 8:5-17

“Do this,” and he does it.
~Matthew 8:17

In today’s reading, I’m also amazed with the faith of the centurion as against to the doubt of Sarah to the Lord’s will. We may doubting in our own abilities and capabilities but God can make and transform our life with marvelous deeds.

In our life, we also gone through both of these stages wherein we always believe that our Father in heaven will grant the desires and wishes of our hearts every time we’re praying unto Him. We want it to happen the way we want and imagine it in our little minds without thinking that we can’t dictate God and let Him follow us because He knows more than we can the better plans for us to be molded and prepared for greater things. On the other hand, there were also times that we are already experiencing the will of God but our hard and cold heart would still not believe that God can make an amazing things and event in our life beyond our expectations and comprehensions.

We all know that we can’t have and get all our wishes and dreams but we may enjoy and be contented what we had. We may have a happy and thankful heart. And we’ll attract more blessings even without asking them because God knows first before we even think about it.

Dear God, thank you for amazing me. May I use myself to amazed more servant yours. Again thank you and love you.

Love lots,

Para Sa ‘Yo

Di ko maalala
Ano ba ang nagawa
Ba’t sa aki’y galit ka
O baka nga ayaw mo na.

Gayunpaman sinta
Kahit ako’y magdurusa
Ika’y pakakawalan na
Para sa ‘yong ikakasaya.

Basta tandaan mo aking sinta
Konting panahon naging akin ka
Sa aki’y panghabangbuhay na
Dahil ika’y walang kapareha.

Akala ko nga ikaw na
Pero kung di naman pala
Masaya pa ring nakilala ka
Dahil sayo’y natutong magsinta.

Hihintayin pa din kita
Basta’t wala ka pang iba
Dahil puso’y umaasa
Pag-ibig nati’y may pag-asa pa.

Mother of Mine

She gave birth, and here I am
All time she cared and nurture,
She always teach me good values
That keeps me righteous and humble.

My mother, the mother of mine,
She is kind; she is nice to all
She is loving, and loved by all,
That describes the mother of mine.
