Good for the Soul - Song Playlist

My only Kuya goes to another church congregation and recently they sponsored a Christian songwriting contest called ASOP Music Festival and sent this link thru FB of the Grand Finals Performance of former Rivermaya frontman Jayson Fernandez "Purihin Ka ng Aking Luha" by Gerwin Villa.

In different seasons of my life, the Lord always put a background music in each of it. Speaking to me not only through the bible, the people He sends but also through the lyrics of songs that strikes a chord deep inside. I'll be sharing with you my latest playlist and would be glad to know if you will take the time to listen to it as I caption the parts that stirred my very core.

Holy Is The Lord by Chris Tomlin
It's rising up all around It's the anthem of the Lord's renown 

Dominion by Citipointe
 You have rescued me
You took a wretch like this
You loved me, and You saved me

 Lord of All by Jose Villanueva III aka Quest 
I wanna live for You, Be glorified forever
My life will declare That You are Lord alone
Everything of me, Use it for Your glory
That everyone will see, Will hear, will know
That You are Lord Of All

Hosanna by Brooke Fraser
Break my heart for what is yours
Everything I am for your kingdom's cause
As I walk from earth into eternity

How He Loves Us by David Crowder Band
So Heaven meets earth like an unforeseen kiss,
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest,
I don't have time to maintain these regrets,
When I think about the way...
He loves us.

Like A Fire by Planetshakers
 Come like a flood and saturate me now, You're all I want
Come like the wind, And sweep throughout this place
You're all we want

How Great Is Our God by Chris Tomlin
Name above all names (How great is our God and all will see)
Worthy of our praise (How great, how great is our God)
My heart will sing, How great is our God

ShenaniGanns Comic Strip

Today's Episode
Believe you, me this comic strip is created by a Christian fella, Ganns. THE communication guy in VCF. If I am not mistaken, he is formerly in Fort but now in Greenhills Victory Center. Anyhow, my point being is that we, followers of Christ, do know how to have good hearty laughs minus the 'sinful human nature' i.e. green jokes. As if my Skit Guys Plus post hasn't proven that point to you yet.

Catch more of the mala-Bubble Gang out takes. Based on true to life at the ShenaniGannsComics FB Page.

The Skit Guys Plus

Oh, men you gotta love this guys!

The Skit Guys



This breaks my heart every time I watch it.

By His Stripes I am Healed

I am diagnosed with subclinical hypothyroidism and pre-diabetes but Jesus is my healer...

God is in control. With all things considered, even if in my eyes at first this experience was an inconvenience in my timeline, budget and career I trust God that He reigns over the situation. He revealed to me a lot of things during my quiet times in those 7 weeks. My relationship deepens even more with Him and I think He wanted that. For me to spend even more time with Him, listening to His voice minus the office deadlines. How He took care of me as I go through this valley in life and how His power of healing and wisdom manifested. Teaching me that the true sabbath is only found in Christ, our Lord. The Holy Spirit guiding me to bible verses that consoles me during the time of pain.

As I ended my "vacation", I wrote this in my journal to keep me focus in my journey:

Claiming this. Thank you Lord.

Worship Night - Month of August 2012

Every first Thursday of the month, the Victory Fellowship Church in the whole of Metro Manila gather in the different centers to hold the 'Worship Night'. Two hours of songs of praises and worship spent together as one body. So despite the rain, attendees in Victory Fort head to Every Nation Building for this month's installment.

Music Ministry
The focus of this particular Worship Night is: God the Jehovah Jireh (the Provider) as depicted in the story of Abraham in Genesis 22 when the Lord asked him to sacrifice Isaac, his beloved, one and only son. We know the story that this is just to test Abraham's faith.

Pastor-Doc Jun Aguilar highlighted in verse 13 that in the right moment God provided a ram for Abraham to sacrifice instead of his beloved Isaac. With this,
14 So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided. ”
Pastors praying for different areas of breakthrough
Another take away for me that night is to make sure you are in the right mountain - in Abraham's case, in Moriah! In that particular mountain, the Lord prepared the bush that will caught the ram and the ram itself that will be used by His servant, Abraham.

It means that the provision can be found in the place where the Lord asks you to be. Often times, we take control of the course of our lives. Making decision out from our personal whims or preferences without asking God where He wants to direct us. With such decisions, we find ourselves lacking of provisions because it was not the place where the Lord prepared His provisions for us. End result: we get frustrated and disappointed or worse blame God for our situation.

In all things, submit it to the Lord in prayer and listen to His leading through the Holy Spirit. This is the crucial point even before we begin our journey for we would encounter lacks on our way but because we know the we have laid upon our decision at His feet we could be in faith that He will be true to His promise that He is the Jehovah Jireh, our provider.
