Thankful today for this friendship & sisterhood. It has gone a long way! Indeed, the love of Christ changes us at mabuti na lang binabago Nya tayo araw-araw! 🙌👭
“Is God asking us to do anything more than what He has already done? Hasn’t He gone a long way in accepting us? If God can tolerate my mistakes, can’t I tolerate the mistakes of others? If God allows me, with my foibles and failures, to call Him Father, shouldn’t I extend the same GRACE to others? In fact, who can offer grace except those secure in the grip of grace? If God doesn’t demand perfection, should I?” In The Grip of Grace, Max Lucado #bestgift #freegift #grace #friends #acrossthemiles #sistersinChrist

"Man is naturally a religious being. His heart instinctively seeks for God whether he reverences the sacred cow or prays to the sun or moon; whether he kneels before wood and stone images, or prays in secret to his Heavenly Father, he is satisfying an inborn urge." Freeing to know that there is a Name above all illusions of worship. #NoOtherName #butJesus #jonleave #traveldiaries #stonehenge #bucketlist #wandersandwonders #wanderland #aroundtheworld #cities #history (at Stonehenge)

A friend did this for my birthday. Amazed by how some people really have the eye and hand and heart for art.

You know there’s a lot going on up there. Your head’s all cluttered up. So many thoughts that have gone unspoken but your mind is mildly empty.. so much to say but nothing to write down.. #quietlips #busyminds 💤🙇💭 (at Starbucks Frankfurt Römer)

ENLARGE the place of your tent, STRETCH your tent curtains wide, DO NOT HOLD BACK. LENGHTEN your cords and STRENGTHEN your stakes. Isaiah 54:2 ✈️🌍 #TellTheWorld

Love, in its own nature, demands the perfecting of the beloved.
C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain

Did You rise the sun for me?
Or paint a million stars that I might
Know Your majesty

Is Your voice upon the wind?
Is everything I’ve known marked
With my Maker’s fingerprints

Breathe on me
Let me see Your face
Ever I will seek You

'Cause all You are, is all I want, always!
Draw me close in Your arms
Oh God, I wanna be with You

Can I feel You in the rain?
Abandon all I am to have You
Capture me again

Let the earth resound with praise
Can You hear as all creation lives
To glorify One Name!

Always | Hillsong United | More Than Life | March 2004

Hasn’t been a month since Hillsong Conference London and my life has been turned upside down & sideways, shaken and tumbled up already!

It was wild.

I had to let go of a relationship that is not glorifying God. I had to make a conscious effort to find someone whom I can be accountable to (praise God for divine connections!) I am moving flats and stepping out of my comfort zone. A long time desire has been stirred up back. And I had the privilege to invite for next year’s conf- to God be the glory!

It was embarrassing though. I thought my plans were great and action plans well mapped out. But God showed me clearly how futile they all were. He works through our desires to bring Himself the most amount of glory through it all! In the process, I am being scraped and sharpened and man, every bit of my flesh cries out in pain! But I am thankful for God is a God of Action and (as always) He’s got my best interest.

Next year would be amazing. Today would be great!

I am excited for what God is doing in this city. I want to experience God move in a corporate way. I believe He wants to see not just worshippers but movers. I pray that Christianity will be tangible in our circles. The church be an oasis in the desert.  I pray that there won’t be any borders among congregations. ‘Me’ and ‘Us’ thinking be destroyed.. It’s about time ‘We’ step up and push the boundaries. We may all be different but we all have the same love and passion for Jesus. Today in my quiet time, God reminded me again that I am imperfect. The church is not perfect but God is! We have to stop creating the impression that we are holy and chosen and exclusive when in reality we all struggle..in fact, we are in dire desperation for God’s presence.

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in your weakness. 2 Corinthians 12:9

May our lives show His abundant grace. May every word we speak and every move we make magnify the big God we have that way our circles will not be able to deny the big God that we serve..  They may not agree with it but they will not be able to deny it! I pray our hearts be stirred up all the more. That we get rooted… soaked in His presence.

One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek, inquire for, and insistently require: that I may dwell in His presence all the days of my life, to behold and gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to meditate in His temple. Psalm 27:4

Lastly, this passion should not stop. It should extend outwards. In our circles- our workplace, our families, our relationships and even in our daily interaction with strangers. By grace, we are able to make manifest the love of Jesus in our everyday lives. Do not wait till you are ready. You are because the Holy Spirit is in you. It’s about time to actually move in the claims that we make in the pew.

Fathom this: What can a sovereign, all knowing, almighty God do to a heart that is fully surrendered to Him? More so, HEARTS that are fully surrendered to Him?

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

I’m with the tallest, ever poised and graceful (even in captivity!) animal in the kingdom! And it’s not true that they are mute.. Though they don’t have a voicebox, they have an undeveloped larynx that makes them capable to make soft sounds such as mewing, bleating, mooing & snorting! ☝️ #giraffe #crewlife #crewperks #traveldiaries #jnb #cities #johannesburg #aroundtheworld #wanderland #wandersandwonders #lionpark #wildlife #nature #southafrica #sandton #fyi #kingdomanimalia (at Lion Park)
