“Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.” -Mark 11:23
THINGS I’M BELIEVING FOR…
☐ To buy gifts for Mom’s Day
☐ To have many friends in Ignite
☐ To have a picture with a celebrity
☐ To buy S4
☐ To buy watch
☐ To inspire others
☐ To go to Forever21 alone.
☐ To make my room extra special and beautiful
Whatever you ask for, if you have faith in Him, He will definitely give it to you. Go and pray the things you want to have, or happen, believe by faith that God will grant that. I know my prayers will come true because I know that God loves giving gifts to His children.
IT’S NOT ABOUT YOUR FINANCES, IT’S NOT ABOUT YOUR PARENT’S JOB, IT’S ABOUT GOD AND OUR FAITH IN HIM. DON’T PUT GOD IN A BOX WHEN YOU PRAY FOR SOMETHING BUT DARE TO PRAY FOR THE NEARLY-IMPOSSIBLE THINGS AND HAVE FAITH, AND BE AMAZED ON HOW GOD’S GONNA WORK ON YOUR PRAYERS.
This song is so amazing, it makes me realize how God loves us and how he made a way for us to live eternity! It bring tears to my eyes as I lift my hands to praise Him!
Sometimes it’s hard to accept that God loves you, I don’t know if you’re feeling the same way but I felt that before, whenever I sin or do something that is wrong I feel that God is mad at me or even hates me but then I started to read this book, “The Gospel in Ten Words” and God has revealed His unfailing love not just for me, but for you also, the one who’s reading this. I want to share one of my favourite paragraph on that book:
“ God loves you with the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns. Just look at the night sky. He put those stars there to impress you with astronomical extravagance of his love. God loved you into existence ad he loved you when you were a sinner. His heart’s desire is for you to know and enjoy his love for eternity.”
See? He so loved us! Even if we were still sinner, remember that He gave His only son to die on that cross for us. He died so we can live, that’s how much he loves us! The previous paragraph reveals that God loves you even if you’re a sinner. Paul Ellis (the writer of The Gospel In Ten Words) said that His love is measureless and so incomprehensibly vast our minds cannot grasp it. We can’t comprehend it because human love is unlike divine love. Be confident to tell yourself that God loves you so much and He want to have a relationship with you, He wants to be your father.
God’s love is greater that our sin and nothing can ever separate us from the love of God unless you refuse it. There’s also nothing you can do to earn it, you just have to receive it by faith.
“Carnal religion would have you believe that God is standing with crossed arms, but grace declares his arms are always open. Religion says God is angry and maybe hates you, but grace proclaims he is always in a good mood and his favour rests upon you. Religion says you need to get yourself sorted out and cleaned up before you can come home, but grace shout “Come on, just as you are!” – The Gospel in Ten Words.
TODAY RECEIVE HIS LOVE BY FAITH AND CLAIM THAT HE LOVES YOU UNCONDITIONALLY.

Yesterday was really fun and exciting experience for all of us, my family and my Dad’s friend. First we have decided to go to Cavinti underground river but its fully booked so we have decided to go to Majayjay, Laguna because my Dad’s friend knew that the place was beautiful and when we arrived, wow it’s a super different view, its very exciting, there’s no pool! (Yes it has but it’s a man made pool) It was a river in there, SUPER CLEAN AND COLD, full of stones, it has bridges, falls and everything we need for us to enjoy it! It was paradise for me, we go to some resorts and we see typical pools and views but this one is different. Here are some pictures….
I enjoyed the grasshopper-me adventure while jumping from one stone to another, the super strong flow of water that can really blew you and of course the bonding with my family and cousins were the BEST, my summer is really a happy one, thank you God for blessing me! I love you <3
Lately I’ve been focusing on how would I look, what would I wear, how will they react on what I’m wearing… and my world was full of earthly, girly desires that is TOO MUCH.
Then God spoke to me and said “you are fearfully and wonderfully made.” – Ps 139:14
OUTWARD BEAUTY < BEAUTY OF THE HEART
I became so obsessed on how would I look that I forgot that the inner beauty is much more important. It became my idol, but with God’s revelation I understand that it has to be trying to cultivate inner beauty—- becoming more loving, gracious and kind. I can never please everyone with what I wear or how I look, because the world’s standard of outward beauty is unattainable. God’s standard of beauty can be achieved by time spent alone with Him, and that inner beauty will make you feel confident with what God has given you on the outside.
God didn’t want just a quick fix time of prayer… He wanted extended periods of friendship and focused conversation with YOU. (Source: Lies Young Women Believe)
Last night was our batch night swimming and it was a day come true answered prayers check to the bucket list thing. Was MEMORABLE, really. We had fun playing while were swimming, we’re laughing under the sky and at 2am we started fixing ourselves to sleep. We had no room that night so we stayed outdoors, at the ground, we lay down there, all of us. Star gazing is the best!
Yung totoo eh sobrang nilalamig na talaga ko, nakikita namin na umuusok na yung pool dahil sa lamig ang maganda pa eh wala akong dalang towel. Pero the next thing I know eh out of 10, 3 nalang kami sa ground. Hindi na ako gaano nilalamig pero sobrang naninigas sa lamig ang paa ko, nagising ako ng maramdamang ko kinumutan ako ni Baba, si Charles naman eh himbing na himbing. Tatlo lang kami at sobrnag lamig talaga, pag mulat ko nakita kong napadaming stars, napangiti nalang ako kahit sobrang pagod. T’was magical, unexpected. A night to remember. Afterwards, naramdaman kong gising na yung ibang lalaki at yung lumipat kami at tulog silang lahat, sama sama sobrang ankakatuwang tingnan dahil 4am palang noon eh natulog ulit ako, sobrang lamig pero ang saya ng soundtrip ko eh, nanginginig ako sa lamig pero paggising ko sobrang saya sa pakiramdam, nakasama ko ang mga mahal kong kaklasi sa isang gabi sobrang saya, we watched the sun rise at ang sarap gumising na sila ang kasama :)
Hi, I really want to blog again (the everyday blogging thing) and now I have the courage to start writing again. Well, I’m in the front of this computer, wanting to be productive. Now I’m thinking about college life, at some point I feel sad and restless , for I know that COLLEGE LIFE is much more difficult than high school. New environment, people, scenarios, everything. I felt really tired when I got to realize the reality of life. But then I got inspired again for I know that God is here, guiding me in everything, and now (changed emotions) I’m excited for college, I’m just finalizing things and I know I will be ready soon <3
