Im Starting a Gratitude Box…

…here in this blog. You can find it at the right-hand side of the page below the four square boxes. This is just a spin-off of a gratitude journal that I talked about in a previous blog. Everyday before I go to sleep, I will post the things I want to thank God for the things He allow me to experience the whole day.  I’m doing this because I want to honor God for the things He has done. Those things may be trivial or insignificant but still, they came from God and everything will have meaning, for me at least. Everyday the devil will throw things at me that will discourage me and put me down. I will fight by giving thanks to the LORD always. For what the devil meant for evil, God will make it for good. In all things I will glorify His name and I intend to honor Him through this blog. I would like to share all my thanksgiving to you, my readers, because God deserves to be given the highest praise. Putting those items in this blog will allow me to do just that. I hope you do...

I Thank God for…

…the new life in the morning, for my ministry at CBN Asia the whole day and for having a family to go home to in the evening. Plus the privilege to have a hot shower before I sleep when I feel like it–that definitely is a great perk! There so many things to thank God for and I believe that He designed us to be such thankful beings. Being thankful allows us to go through a difficult day much, much, much easier. It just makes life a lot tolerable–period! It is so hard to meet sincerely thankful people. They thank God with their lips but grudgingly go through the day. I hope that I may not be one of them. I pray that every time I thank God it is because i am really thankful to Him and not just for others to hear. The Psalmist said in Psalm 30:13, “O Lord, my God, I will give thanks to You forever.” In Psalm 9:1, “I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart.” That is why I encourage those who read this that in whatever situation you are in right now, just be thankful. Paul said that “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.” If you love Jesus, every thing...

I Published a Book!

Well, actually it was Asian Center for Missions who published it–I just coordinated the efforts and designed it. It was a great but sometimes arduous ride. Publishing a book is really not for the faint of heart. But once you see it, smell it and feel it. You will find it all worthwhile. At least, that was what I felt. This book, Voices in the Wilderness, is actually a labor of love for many people. It is a compilation of five stories culled from the life of six missionaries and their families. This tome was written for the Asian Center for Missions by Ms. Nena C. Benigno. She is the daughter of the late Teddy Benigno. The stories in it and how it was written was really an adventure, a 5-year adventure. The concept for the book started as an off-shoot of ACM’s 10th year anniversary. Back then, the idea came to write a book based on the loves of ACM’s missionary training program graduates who were now living their calling in foreign lands. Nena went to Thailand, China, Vietnam and as far as Africa to see first-hand the experiences of ACM’s graduates and how their lives are making an eternal impact in the lives of the people they work with. I actually began designing and laying out the inside of the book less than three months ago. The...

Matthew 7:24-25

Last year, in September, we experienced one of the most devastating flooding in my life. Almost everybody knows about it. It was the flooding brought about by typhoon Ondoy. For the first time, our barangay in Marikina City was flooded, at least 6 – 7 feet. Inside our apartment, the water rose to just below my waist line. Right before the waters stopped rising, I was already fearing the most, that we may have to evacuate. I was blessed that the floodwaters started receding before it became worse. But in many other parts of our city, it was a bleak situation. When I went to my mother-in-laws house, in another barangay after the waters receded, I was saddened to learned that their two-storey house was buried in over 25 feet of raging river water. Almost everything they owned was either washed away or was brown with mud. If you were in this situation, how would you feel? If your faith does not have  strong foundation, you could have cursed at God. Along with the floodwaters, your faith could have been literally washed away. I praised God that my family was hugely spared. We were able to bring our “material possessions” to a safer level. We were largely unscathed. If my house or my possessions were under 25 feet of water, would I be even be able to praise God....

Isaiah 55:6-7

Seek the LORD while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near. Let the wicked change their ways and banish the very thought of doing wrong. Let them turn to the LORD that he may have mercy on them. Yes, turn to our God, for he will forgive generously. When do you think you will not be able to find God and call to Him? Will such time ever come? I think it will. That time is called The Great Tribulation. I’m no expert in eschatology (study of the end-times) but I also think that we are very near the end times. This generation might see the return of Jesus. Will we be ready? The pleasure of sin is such an illusion. It wraps you up in good feelings and before you know it, God can’t get through you anymore. You stop hearing him because you are immersed in the feelings it gives you. But Jesus does not stop reaching out. He is always with us. If you are deep in sin right now, when will you “…change your way and banish the very thought of doing wrong?” I must admit, the battle against sin is a tough one, but not an impossible undertaking. We need to have a conscious and intentional decision to stop sinning–even if you can’t yet. This is were we start, at the decision....
