mighty to save (spanish)

Todos necesitan
Amor que ninca falla,
Tu gracia y compasión

Todos necesitan,
perdón y esperanza
De un Dios que salva
Cristo, puede mover montes
Solo Dios puede Salvar
Mi Dios puede salvar!
Por siempre, autor de Salvación
Jesús la muerte venció
El la muerte venció!//
Aún con mis temores,
sé que me aceptas
lléname otra vez
Mi vida entera ofrezco,
para seguir tus pasos
a ti me rindo (a ti me rindo)
// En la tierra tu luz brillará
Por la gloria de tu majestad!

father's eyes

Father's Eyes

By Amy Grant
I may not be every mother's dream for her little girl,
And my face may not grace the mind of everyone in the world.
But that's all right, as long as I can have one wish I pray:
When people look inside my life, I want to hear them say,
She's got her father's eyes,
Her father's eyes;
Eyes that find the good in things,
When good is not around;
Eyes that find the source of help,
When help just can't be found;
Eyes full of compassion,
Seeing every pain;
Knowing what you're going through
And feeling it the same.
Just like my father's eyes,
My father's eyes,
My father's eyes,
Just like my father's eyes.
And on that day when we will pay for all the deeds we have done,
Good and bad they'll all be had to see by everyone.
And when you're called to stand and tell just what you saw in me,
More than anything I know, I want your words to be,
She had her father's eyes,
Her father's eyes;
Eyes that found the good in things,
When good was not around;
Eyes that found the source of help,
When help would not be found;
Eyes full of compassion,
Seeing every pain;
Knowing what you're going through,
And feeling it the same.
Just like my father's eyes,
My father's eyes,
My father's eyes,
Just like my father's eyes.
My father's eyes,
My father's eyes,
Just like my father's eyes.

dearest pa,
i am so glad i have you.
you're the best dad in the whole world.
your passion for God
and compassion for people
amazes me!
i do fall short being your eldest daughter
but i still feel your
unconditional love for me.
really, awesome!
Happy fathers' day, pa!
i love you.

independence day

this pigeon was a willing captive
of the changeling.
now they've grown.
the one inside the iron bars.
the other outside watching.
who thought
a bird could imprison another?
it's time to stop guarding.
no more hoarding.
it's time to set somebody free.
fly little one.
i hope you still know how to fly.

post script:
thanks for staying
and gracing my years.

i heart r E V O L ution

revolution is defined as either of the following:

1. a. Orbital motion about a point, especially as distinguished from axial rotation:
the planetary revolution about the sun.
b. A turning or rotational motion about an axis.
c. A single complete cycle of such orbital or axial motion
2. The overthrow of one government and its replacement with another.
3. A sudden or momentous change in a situation: the revolution in computer technology.
Geology A time of major crustal deformation, when folds and faults are formed.

Among the given definitions what we need is the third one. A change of situation is a result of a change of heart.
Gosh, it's embarrassing. But I have to get my heart changed. Rested. Corrected. Exposed.
I need a transplant, I guess.
I have to know love.
I have to know You more, God.
For You are Love.
Let the revolution start with me.
Come, begin to operate on me.

For what is your life, it is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.


"I will give you hidden riches of secret places..." -a portion of Isa45:3.
There are still a lot of things that remain concealed from man. If we feel like all things are exhausted and running out of ideas, let's just go to the secret place--the place of the Father. There, He would reveal Himself and will open a well of ideas that bring glory to Him. I know I'll own a business someday. I mean, soon! It could be truths and revelations of His Word. Ideas in building people up... Whatever, as long He gets the glory... that's what the end of the verse says.
Aaahhh... everyday just gets more exciting. A few lines from Kung Fu Panda says: Yesterday is history, tomorrow's a mystery. But today's a gift. That's why it's called present.
Everyday's a blessing. Ssssshhh, it's a secret!

a typical day i guess

I slept so late last night since i worried much about today's urgent service Youth To The Nations was called for--that is to serve Holy Cross of Davao College's freshmen orientation. haha, more than the urgency, it was an honor of course to welcome the freshmen. We set up a booth and provided a bowl of verses (promises!) for them to pick. We gave out free sign pens (an investment!) and asked the freshies to sign-up for the org. More of a benefit, eh? Definitely.

Almost the same thing happened with Y2dN-UM. We were the only club who assisted the incoming first year students in their enrollment. Walked them through the whole process and then of course, recruited them to Y2dN!
Why would we forget USEP? Well, Mrs. Villarente said in a flick to one of the university's campus clubs should welcome the freshmen! A given, yes, she was talking to one of our leaders! (Chem2x to be specific!) So there the banner hangs and forms open for the freshies!
Ah, an academic year that holds a lot of surprises!

Amazing coincidences of opportunities? No. We prayed for them. And now we have lots of contacts to consolidate! thank you, Lord.
My day ended with a tiring walk around Uyanguren area (China Town!) with AJ. Saw one of our churchmates who gave us money for a Jolly snack! haha... and of course, Youth Reload. Who can get by with a week without it?
And now I'm here. finishing my pinataka dish (my own salad invention of nata de coco and other creams!).
I have one fine day to close. Fruitful day? Call it splendid! Busy? Exhausting.

I'm closely closing it now.
with a hope that tomorrow will be another day of leaping from being stuck in day 1 of my 21-day challenge!!!
good night everyone.

don't be sad. just change.

"Don't be sad. Just change!" were Ps. Rich Witmer's (of Generations Church, Yuma, Arizona, USA) almost-defeaning words at the G12 Summit held yesterday & today (June2-3, 2008 - Durian City, Philippines!). Tricky but challenging. Well, I didn't leave the smaller hall of the CAP Auditorium just contested. Something in my built-in spiritual "ipod" just right the side of my ears keep playing the words over and over as if in a repeat mode. Hey, was I sad at some points of the preaching? Well, I won't be bothered by the words if I wasn't. I was so blessed by His ministry. I have heard him preach so many times already and my soul always have its full portion every time. But it was only this time that he brought his wife, Melissa, to minister. Her spirit is so inspiring. I am so glad me and my girls (and of course, BCC gang! patatalo ba?!) received ministry. Lord, bless them more!
my notes @d Summit:
SEVEN BLOODSHED (from Ps. Cesar Castellanos, ICM, teaching)

Do you think you need a new beginning?
New beginnings can only come by the washing of BLOOD
Noah's time--washing of water
but Salvation requires the washing through the BLOOD
The blood of Jesus is eternal. It is in heaven. We can see it when we go there. It is at the altar. The Lamb that was slain. It is so powerful that it heals, saves, revives. If only it is sold at ebay even just a drop, how many would bid! People would give their all just for that drop of Blood that could take away their miseries, mend their broken hearts and raise their dead.
But we don't get to pay for it. It was given to us for free!
The Body of Jesus--was a powerful container that it carried the Blood of Jesus.
But it has to die so that the blood won't only be contained and limited to the place where the body goes. When it was pierced and broken at the Cross, it healed and restored many.
We have to go to the Cross not just talk about it.
There's a difference between knowing and experiencing.

Luke 22:44
-He was in an incredible amount of stress that His sweat was with blood
-the stress & anguish of thinking about His disciple who would betray Him. It hurt him. Judas was close to Him since Judas was prophesied to dip with Him in the same cup (at the last supper).
Jesus bled as He sweat to save us from betrayal:: US being betrayed and US betraying others. this world is good at betrayal.
If you won't forgive, you get bitter. Jesus taught us to forgive to keep us from being bitter.
I am forgiven. I must feel forgiven.

2. THE ROMAN WHIP - Isaiah 53:36
A nine-strand whip of bones and metals at the end. Jesus was flogged with it 39 times. Enough to show open His internal organs. And there are 39 categories of major diseases discovered!
Jesus bled for my sicknesses and diseases. Even emotional pangs are redeemed! Sin of whatever form is cleansed through Jesus.

-represents prosperity and conquest
prosperity not only represents material blessing; but the ability to prosper. to move from glory to glory. to grow in the Lord.
-to prosper is a mindset
-the less is blessed by the greater, so be great to bless others!
-we can;t bless our city if we have a poverty mindset.
-we don't take sides. we take conquest.
-my prosperity depends on Kingdom Economy.
-Gen 3:17-19
-anything in the Bible that talks abt being worn in the head means a mindset
-we are a people who work and gets the return!
-Satan owned the world when he tempted Jesus to bow down to him since Adam gave the serpent (Satan) the world when he was deceived through disobedience.
-Never say anything against your NATION.
-Never say anything against your CITY.
-Never say anything against your CHURCH.
-Never say anything against your PASTOR.
-Never say anything against your LEADER.
-Never say anything against your SPOUSE.
-Never say anything against your CHILDREN.
-Never say anything against your DISCIPLES.
If people want to be blessed, they have to enter in a covenant.
God is taking arguments in my favor! Woohoo!

-Jesus restored our self-esteem
-God cares about how you think about you.
-When we desire to be like God, it is ok because God made us that way; to be like Him; and we are actually made in His image. Lucifer sinned because he was not created in the image of God and he desired to be like the most high.
Jesus looks good on me.
Listen to God. Not to your emotions. Emotions lie.
Don't say bad things about yourself. It's not your work. It's the devil's.
There's nothing good in me that not God in me.
If I allow the Enemy to work, I am limiting myself.
Don't try to go up without changing your mind?
Dreams: to believe it; to speak it; to breathe it.

We didn't come here to learn. We come here to change. By accident on our part. By design on God's part.

the world loves Jesus, the people who hated Him were the religious.
the world longs for a Savior.
We have to be the church that's like Jesus. The world is condemned by the Enemy already. We are the Church. We should bless them.
=to affect with some feeling
=to make a difference
=to make contact
touching vs. touching?
a. bumping accidentally
b. intentional touch with faith
*So the Devil crucified Jesus so that He couldn't touch people and they won't be healed anymore. But he is stupid once again. He nailed Jesus and caused Him to bleed. This time we are all touched by His blood.
Signs and wonders follow the believers.
Jesus=contained God in this earthsuit; He could only minister to places where this body goes; But He died so he could be everywhere.
