In a relationship for 8 years!

Last April 15, 2005, Jesus asked me if I would accept Him in my life as my Lord and Savior. I said, ‘Yes’.

As I look back on the night of my altar call, I realized that even after 8 years I’m still not perfect, but I’m still with Jesus, who is the perfector of my faith. I’m still not sinless, but Jesus still loves the sinner in me. I still have fears and inhibitions, but Jesus is my strength and my power. I may not remain faithful to Him, but He remains faithful to me. I still don’t have everything that I want, but Jesus is everything that I need, for He is more than enough.

Eight years of being in a relationship with Jesus made my life worth living because no matter how strong the storms are, I have Him who calms seas and quiets the thunders. Each day, I will never be tired and weak to proclaim and live as someone for Jesus.

Another leap of faith happens last April 15, 2013, when Jesus reminded me that living for Him guarantees no comfort but a fulfilled purpose and eternal peace.


Within the 8 years and to eternity, I know I will never be alone anymore, for I will forever be in a relationship with Jesus! ♥

Where would I be in the 8 years without Jesus? I don’t know, I probably have a wasted life. This is why I really can’t thank my friend and my sister in Christ, Irish Fe, enough for inviting me to the camp that changed my wasted life to an awesome one. I can’t believe it’s been 8 years since I said Yes to Jesus! Thank you so much Irish. I’ll be eternally grateful.

Have a Bag and Give a Book!

I read this good news with Ms. Rica Peralejo‘s blog post Here are Some Totes about buying a bag and sharing books. This gave me too much interest that I felt the need to really share this because  books and literacy are closest to my heart.

I’m a self-confessed bookworm and that I’ll be forever grateful that I learned to read in advance at the age of 3 as my parents raised me up with books as gifts when I was still a child. Reading and having a lot of books is a privilege nowadays, which I believe is wrong. Literacy must be for free! Reading is not  a luxury; it is a right that every one should know how and experience its wonders.

I salute the cause of in their partnership with Diksyonaryo Atbp., an organization that helps increase and promotes literacy here in our country.

So, to all the book lovers out there like me, let us not forget our unfortunate fellows who doesn’t even know how to read and write. Share the word! Be blessed and be a blessing!

If you can’t purchase any bag (like me) yet, you can still visit the Diksyonaryo Atbp. website and see how you can help. If there is a will then surely there will always be a way. My way is spreading the good news just like Ms. Rica did. What’s yours?

The Power of Claiming It!

(Late post)

As I was reviewing my previous tweets, I saw this thread last January between me and my previous office mates then Architect interns Nelson and Jonathan.


This was after they took their Architecture Licensure Exams

I called them Architects at that time because I already claim that they are. I did not just pray that Lord will bless my friends to pass their boards, but my prayer was like this:

Lord, I know that these men are really good Architects, so I claim that they will have their licenses soon. I also believe that they will top and excel in their board exams. I claim these things in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt…” – James 1:6

After weeks of praying and a day of fast before their exams, the results came out and Nelson topped the exam!


I was so happy and proud for Nelson when I saw this!

And, here’s the list of my awesome Architect friends that I prayed for, who passed their Licensure Exams, the newest batch of Architects:

Arch. Jet De La Rosa

Arch. Nelson Roquero

Arch. Johanna Co

Arch. Adrian Tumang

Arch. Angelo Ramos

However, I’m not so sure if Jonathan passed, but for me, he will always be one of the best Architects in this world! More to pray for the Architects Board Exams this coming June. 🙂

Congrats Architects!
