Moving out of comfort zone

We’re currently looking for a house to rent, probably in Makati area or Manila but near Makati area. We started the hunt last week. It’s not easy to move on, the place where we live now is such a blessing because we are provided our own room with free electricity and all. But sometimes you just need to move on and spread your wings.

I know this new journey my hubby and I will be traversing will increase our faith and will let us see how God provides for His children.

The mission’s house has become our comfort zone and it shouldn’t. So we’re leaving our comfort zone to where God would allow us to soar high and hold on to His promises.

Help us pray for these please;

1) God’s direction
2) Wisdom to know His will
3) Provision
4) Humble hearts

And I hold on this verse from Mark 11:24

“Jesus said, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it and it will be yours.”

Establishing your priorities

Teach us to number our days and recognize how few they are; help us to spend them as we should.

Psalms 90:12 TLB

God’s priorities should be what we seek in life. I f we follow His plan, we’ll walk with proper balance in all our responsibilities. Establish what things are most important, then let everything else fall into its right place. I’ve found the following guidelines, in this order, to be helpful: time with God, time with husband, time with family, and time for ministry.

Wife and motherhood duties fall into order as we first submit our ways to God. Time with God is so vital. If we don’t have time with Him, we won’t be filled up to handle the day effectively. Spiritually speaking, we’ll run out of patience, joy, peace, and self –control; and we‘ll miss God’s leading in areas.

On the other hand, if we start our day with prayer and God’s word, we can put on the armor of God, our spirits will be filled with the fruit of the Holy Spirit, and our hearts will be sensitive to hear God’s voice speaking to us.

Take time to read and study God’s word every day, even if it’s only a few minutes. Don’t let the devil talk you out of it. Remember, you are in a spiritual battle and you need to keep your guard up. Your time with God is your source of strength in life.

“Set aside some time today to seek God, pray, and read His Word. Even if it is only fifteen minutes, any time you give God will help to fill you up, so you can effectively deal with the challenges of your day.”

Surrender ALL to Jesus

I surrender all

I surrender all

All to thee

My blessed Savior

I surrender all

Burdens, worries, family misunderstandings, finances, friends deserted, lonely, drug addiction, alcohols,

Offer it at the feet of JESUS and surrender everything to HIM.

You'll find peace you can never imagine you'll have in your whole life.

Don't get stressed out, stand still!

Fear ye not, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.
Exodus 14:13 KJV

Are you so overwhelmed by everything you need to accomplish that you feel as though you might crack? I understand what it’s like to be stressed. It’s difficult to find balance in our lives with our hectic schedules and multitude of responsibilities.

Fear is a major cause of stress, yet there are many places in the Bible where God tells us to “fear not”. When we “fear not,” we are able to step outside the realm of being panic stricken by circumstances. Then we are to “stand still.”

Have you ever tried to make sense to a person who is running around all stressed out? In contrast, if you will stand still and get into an atmosphere of faith, you will “see the salvation of the Lord.’

When I looked up this Scripture in the originals text, I found that it means, “One who comes from outside to bring help.” When you’re in the middle of a stressful situation, the problems are often all you can see. Of course, if you were in the middle of a fire, the situation would look really bad to you. But if you were outside the fire, you would be able to handle it more rationally. God deals with your circumstances from outside the stress, so step outside with Him. He has the solution you need.

“Make a conscious effort to “step out of” your circumstances today. Stand still with God outside those circumstances, and watch as He saves the day.

Your Unfailing Love

I was really blessed by this song this morning as we sang it during the worship service. Humbled by the great LOVE of the FATHER. I hope you feel HIS LOVE for you too!
