As soon as you’re satisfied with God alone, He’ll bring someone special in your life. (As though God’s blessings are ever earned by our contentment.)

You’re too picky. (As though God is frustrated by our fickle whims and needs broader parameters in which to work.)

As a single, you can commit yourself wholeheartedly to the Lord’s work. (As though God requires emotional martyrs to do his work, of which marriage must be no part.)

Before you can marry someone wonderful, the Lord has to make you someone wonderful. (As though God grants marriage as a second blessing to the satisfactorily sanctified.)

It’s kinda embarrasing to read about pastors resigning because of moral failures. I can’t really speak on what happened to these men but rather be reminded that Satan is really on a double time to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10). I wouldn’t deny that I followed these guys online. I think we need hard hitting speakers but yes, we have to watch our life and doctrine closely (1 Tim. 4:16).

Instead of joining the crowd in stoning preachers who fell, I think we, as individuals, should not go on a bashing spree, but rather, this is the time to step up as Christians. We should ask, how should we respond in light of these issues? (more…)

Baptism in a shower room

Posted: May 19, 2013 in Uncategorized

I’m tired. Full schedule on a Sunday which meant I was working late last night (a Saturday) and sometimes I feel so drained. Like right now, I feel exhausted.

But what lifts my spirits is seeing a man, advanced in years, wanting to go for a water baptism. Even with his health complications, this did not stop him from getting baptized. (more…)

Serve Day

Posted: May 16, 2013 in Uncategorized

I would begin with a line I heard somewhere…

Christians are created for service. The question is, who are you serving.

Sometimes, I feel that we keep on doing things but we really are not making an impact in our city. We keep on doing ministry but not really hitting the target. Serve day is an opportunity for the church (and to every individual) to rise up to the challenge and help out a school, in terms of cleaning and painting the rooms.

This takes a lot of faith. We really didn’t know where to get the supplies but God provided and the manpower just came.

I am grateful for the opportunity of being able to serve.

My momma

Posted: May 13, 2013 in Uncategorized

I was given an assignment a month before mother’s day. There were a lot of events in church such as the VBS (or vacation Bible school) and a lot of activities that I really wasn’t able to write down ideas for this video.

Monday came and I was so exhausted. I dropped by to a friend’s house to just see what his mom is doing or simply put it, it’s like studying my subject. The best subject I can think of is my own mother.

Tuesday came and we had to go on a road trip to San Carlos City, about two hours by land, and then took us across the Island by ferry and we were able to spend the night there and go back to Cebu the following day, technically arriving around 6pm on Wednesday. So three days have passed by.

Thursday came and I was having a writer’s block. or rather, a script is still not in place.

Friday came and we had the youth, and I tried to make a video out of them but it wasn’t just up to the standards.

I felt that life was spiraling out of control but thank God for that Friday night. I remembered bubble gang.

The longest running gag show in Philippine TV used to have segments like the rich kids talking, or the muchas grasas, where hobos act out like rich people and talk about life. I also remembered boy pick up.

Hence, the idea came and I was able to make the scripts. and the shoot.

We had to shoot twice because the first time we shot this, I forgot to turn on the microphone.

anyway, this is simply my way of saying…happy mother’s day mom! 🙂
