Jesus Christ Is My Healer (My Personal Testimony Part I)

Image
Here is one chapter in my life that will always stay fresh in my mind. Sometimes I don’t want to think about it because it brings back a tremendous feeling in me but the Holy Spirit has been leading me to share it here in my blog. This experience in my life is a living proof that God is still the same yesterday, today and forever and miracles happen when we pray. I’m not telling this to glorify myself or anybody but to glorify the name of Jesus, my Healer.

It was September 1995 when I felt a lump in my left breast while I was taking a bath. I got worried but I can’t go to the doctor at that time because I had no money, no job and my grandmother who had been supporting us from her pension just passed away. My sister Violy was the sole bread-winner at that time and life was not that easy. I am a college graduate but it's not easy to get a job in the Philippines. I tried my best to look for one and I applied in different offices but no luck. Then after a few months of searching and a…

Directions To Home

Make a right onto believeth Blvd.

Keep straight and go through the green light which is Jesus Christ.

There, you must turn onto the bridge of faith, which is over troubled water

When you get off the bridge, make a Right turn and keep straight.

You are on the King's highway- Heaven Bound.

Keep going for three miles; One for the Father, One for the Son, and One for the Holy Ghost.

Then exit off onto Grace Blvd. From there make Right on Gospel Lane

Keep straight and then make another right on Prayer Road.

As you go on your way, Yield Not to the Traffic on Temptation Ave.

Also avoid Sin Street because it is a Dead End.

Pass up Envy Drive, and Hate Avenue,

Also, pass up Hypocrisy Street, Gossiping Lane, and Backbiting Blvd.

However you have to go down Long-suffering Lane, Persecution Blvd. and Trials and Tribulation Ave.

But that's alright because Victory Street is straight ahead!

Someone Else

Image
We are all saddened to learn this week of the death of one of our church's most valuable members, Someone Else.

Someone's passing created a vacancy that will be difficult to be.

Else has been with us for many years, and for every one of those years, Someone did far more than a normal person's share of the work.

Whenever leadership was mentioned, this wonderful person was looked to for inspiration as well as results: Someone Else can work with that group."

Whenever there was a job to do, a class to teach, or a meeting to attend, one name was on everyone's list- Someone Else.

"Let Someone Else do it" was a common refrain heard throughout the church.

It was common knowledge that Someone Else was among the largest givers in the church. Whenever there was a financial need, everyone just assumed Someone Else would make up the difference.

Someone Else was a wonderful person, sometimes appearing superhuman; but a person can only do so much.

Were the truth known,…

The Desires of Your Heart

Image
READ | Psalm 37:1-8

You may have heard God's promise to give you "the desires of your heart." But too quick a glance at Psalm 37:4 will lead only to frustration and disappointment. To understand the scope of God's awesome promise, we must explore the conditions He placed around this passage.

First, Psalm 37:1-2 tells us not to fret about or envy "evildoers." In other words, we shouldn't be consumed with the success of unrighteous people. God will deal with them. Your responsibility is to watch your own actions.

Next, verse three instructs us to "trust in the LORD," "do good," and "cultivate faithfulness." God is interested in our maturity. He wants to be able to trust us with life's major decisions, which usually relate to our deepest desires.

In verse four, we are clearly told to "delight… in the LORD." We should seek His desires. If we truly pursue God's good pleasure, our desires will fall right into place.

Far From My Heavenly Home

Image
Far from my heavenly home,Far from my Father's breast, Fainting I cry, blest Spirit come, And speed me to my rest, My spirit homeward turns And fain would thither flee, My heart, O Zion droops and yearns, When I remember thee. To thee, to thee I press, A dark and toilsome road; When shall I pass the wilderness, And reach the Saints abode? God of my life, be near On Thee my hope I cast: O guide me through the desert here, And bring me home at last.

Moments of Weakness

Image
READ | 2 Samuel 11:1-5

Scripture is filled with descriptions of men and women who sinned in moments of weakness. The first of these true stories is Adam and Eve. First Corinthians 10:11 says these stories are given for our instruction. God wants us to learn from the mistakes of others.

King David's idleness caused his mind to contemplate adultery with Bathsheba. Weariness led Elijah to view death as preferable to life. Genesis 3:6 indicates pride may have played a part in Eve listening to the serpent. Lust may have prompted Solomon to desire many wives, including unbelieving ones. Add to these a sense of spiritual or emotional neediness and emptiness, and we have at least six situations that are fertile ground for temptation. In some biblical examples, temptation was resisted. But in others, the individuals gave in. We can all identify.

The many different types of temptation follow a similar pattern. The eye looks, the mind desires, and the will acts. King David looked at Uriah's…

Angels

THIS STORY IS BASED FROM MY TRUE EXPERIENCE.

The question some may ask, are Angels real?

The answer is yes they do exist, I know by experience. When I was about 6 years old my father had an old footlocker in the garage. He told all of us kids to stay out. Well, I am the type of person if someone tells me not or I can"t do something I will do it or die. I went out in the garage climbed into that footlocker and the lid shut and locked with me in side. I screamed and yelled but no one could hear me. I was soon crying and so scared that I may die there inside and no one will know where I was. I was inside that footlocker, locked in for how long I don"t know but it seemed like eternity. Then the lid opened and it was just like when your mother would pick you up when you were hurt. It was that way then but no one that I could see was there. It was my gurdian angel watching over me that day, the one the good Lord had sent. From that day on I have believed in angels. I think some time…
