Say So!


“Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has delivered from the hand of the adversary” (Psalm 107:2, AMP)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

Notice that scripture doesn’t say “Let the redeemed of the Lord think so. Let the redeemed believe so.” Of course it’s important to think right, and it’s important to believe right, but something supernatural happens when we declare something out loud. And, you don’t even have to say it to anyone else; you can just say it to yourself — driving to work or in the shower. You can say, “The economy may be low, but I am blessed. I am prosperous. I will lend and not borrow.” “I may have had some setbacks, but I know those setbacks are a setup for a comeback! This is still going to be my best year so far. The favor of God is turning things around.” You are prophesying your future. When you say what the Lord has done for you, when you declare that you are redeemed, you are opening the door for God to move on your behalf. The scripture tells us that He watches over His Word to perform it. When you declare His Word, when you speak His promises, He is faithful to fulfill them and lead you into victory all the days of your life!


Father in heaven, thank You for delivering me and setting me free. I will declare Your goodness. I will declare Your promises. I will declare Your favor so that I can live the good life You have prepared for me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Earthquake in Manila

Around 1:31 AM
July 26,2011
6.2 Magnitude
Intensity 4 in Manila, Quezon City and Clark Pampanga,
Intensity 3 in Pasig and Makati CIty

source : PHIVOLCS

I was awake and I felt it and  as of this time, I'm still bit scared and shaken. Suddenly  ugly memories from the July 1990 major earthquake floods my memory and I've become more scared.

I wish I slept early..but then I knew I would be awaken.

Phivolcs said we should expect aftershocks and honestly I feel like I'm feeling them but obviously I'm just a nervous wreck.

Please pray for everyone's safety here.

I'm speaking in a youth gathering of our church on Sunday afternoon and was asked to talk about the importance of Education, the people in our church knows that education for all is my advocacy thus our group (young professionals) few years ago organized a scholarship program for less fortunate but deserving youth, the aim is to help them finish school and get a better chance of having a good job and a good life. Getting an education is like having trophies or medals and plaques and no one can snatch that from you.

This has been my ministry since then, and God has put this in my heart in remembrance and in gratefulness because I was once a recipient of some kind of educational assistance to from a Christian missionary when I was still in high school. If not of that assistance I may not even finish high school.

I've posted a poster of our current scholars on my previous blog entry and I'm encouraging you to please take a look at it.

I'm thankful God can use us all as the extension of his hands here on earth.

Thankful Thursday

Today, Dineen is taking over in place of Lynn who is on vacation. She talks about turning point in your life, you know those times that you had it planned and then God had another and a much better plan for bigger purpose.

My turning point would be when I left my home province and moved here in Manila. (Philippines'Capital City. I was broken hearted,on my late twenties, no job and depressed. My first weeks were spent sleeping the whole day and staying awake the whole night ( I lived in my sister's house then)just so I won't be able to talk to anyone. I did not want to leave province because all my good friends were there but God has planned something better for me.

Eventually, God laid out His plan and I found a job, found a church to which I was restored into God's hand and found God's best for me. Had I not leave my job in the province and decided to stay there, I'd probably be forever a backslider and married to an irresponsible man. Thank you so much Lord for orchestrating events in my life.

My other thankful list for the week would be;

1. I was sick Monday & Tuesday- Thanks so much for the healing and rest
2. My brother's problem has been settled and me and my family were relieved.
3. My brother in law is going home from the hospital today, his hernia operation went smooth and well.

What are you thankful for this week? Please do share it with us at Lynn's site.

And just before I go, let me share you also document imaging, document scanning and document management solution is what they offer, they can scan all kinds of documents from A to E size paper.

Hope you all have a good day!! and Happy weekend everyone :) God is good ALL THE TIME!

Home ALone

for the first time, it's very rare that you'll find me home during the day more so alone.But I have no choice, I am still resting and recovering and the husband has to go to hospital to accompany his brother for an out patient minor operation.

Now, what do you usually do when you are home and alone?

I've been in front of the PC for few hours now (three hours I guess?)and I'm getting bored. I've read all about barcode scanners and visited all my friends blog, stalked some of facebook accounts of people I have absolutely no idea who they are :) and played some games.

It's quite hard for someone who is so use to be working all the time and suddenly find so much time in her hands she doesn't even know what to do with it.

Now, i guess I'll just have to go back to bed ans sleep.

God works in ways we cannot see...

Thank you Lord.

After pouring our hearts in prayer and crying for help (desperately) last night..

Finally today, the one thing that been worrying me since last week has been settled. My sister was able to talk to them and they agreed of something that will be beneficial for both families.

Now, we only have to wait for the insurance payment and hopefully it will come sooner so we can have everything settled and move on from this test.

This one made me realize how important insurance is. You never know when you need it and although it doesn't give any assurance that you'll be safe at all, it is still better to have one. Will look at whole life insurance later to just have a glimpse of what can we avail someday.

if you think sometimes that God has forgotten your needs, think again..He works in ways we cannot see :) And He never sleeps, he never slumber, he never tires of hearing our prayer.

Have a good day everyone!

Friends | Max's | Guitar Hero|

I know I've already mentioned many times here but I would like to say it again that I am blessed with friends. I cherished my friends in our church for we are bonded not only with common interests but with the love of the Lord.

It was weeks ago when we went out again after such a long time and decided to try the chicken all you can promo at Max's restaurant, and you can tell by the picture below that we enjoyed the chicken a lot!

After devouring many chickens at Max's, we went straight to a friend's house where we enjoyed being rock star for a moment. They have Nintendo Wii Guitar Hero and I super enjoyed playing the bass. Good stress reliever :)

Praising God for F.R.I.E.N.D.S!

Sunday Worship

How's your Sunday everyone? Did you go to church? Did you have a celebration of praise with your church family? I hope you all did because...well,  


And I'm sure we all need strength for the coming week. We do not know what we are going to face/battle and we can only be certain of our victory if we are strengthened, if we are recharged, if we get refilled of the energies we used for the past week right?

That's why, having fellowship with fellow believers, worshiping with your spiritual family is important. Somehow, we drew strength from that.

This Sunday morning I was not in the worship team but nonetheless, I had a wonderful worship experience down the stage. Jumping and shouting (now that's some calories off too-no need to take the best weight loss pills right?)

Anyways, I had a wonderful weekend, Saturday was spent with  movie marathon time with friends and  a wonderful worship for Sunday .

I can very well say ----I'm recharge for the week :)

Thankful Thursday

Gratitude….Recognizing the treasure in the simple-a child’s hug, fertile soil, a golden sunset. Relishing the comfort of the common-a warm bed, a hot meal, a clean shirt. – Max Lucado

It was what I read when I opened my devotional book this morning. And while we are ( I am) going through a lot of testings this time, I am gently reminded by our sweet Lord that I am blessed and that there are many reasons to be thankful for.

It has been quite sometime since I last joined this meme and I also thought that God reminded me to come and join ladies with thankful hearts again as He has made me read about being thankful exactly Thursday morning :)

So here’s my list for this week;

1. Food in the table – God has always been faithful and provided every food for each meal.

2. Electricity – we tend to not see how blessed we are if we have electricity at home until someone you know tells you they doesn’t have and that their home is dark and gloomy and. So today, I take time to thank the Lord that we have that and we have lights and fan to cool us during the night  shallow but I am very much thankful for that.

3. Friends that make you laugh – I don’t categorized friends but I am thankful I have these set of friends that always makes me laugh which I find very helpful during tough times. You know when all you need is a good laugh.

How about you? What are you thankful for this week? Let us know, please join us at Spiritually Unequal Marriage blog.

Retreating Forward

Excerpts from "Our Daily Bread-July 05,2011"

In this fast-paced, get-ahead world,it's easy to wear our selves down-pressing ahead and moving forward at all costs. But even in our desire to be effective Christians, we must consistently be willing to retreat into God's presence. Only in the refreshing of His strength can we find the resources to move forward in our service for Him. Retreat in Jesus before moving forward.- Bill Crowder

"Alone with the Father is the only place to find strength to press on"

Matthew 14: 23
After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone,

It is only indeed in God's presence that our longing is fulfilled, our strength renewed and we are refreshed. In God's presence there is completeness of joy!
