Lasting happiness doesn’t come from sunny days but from the Son of God.

The Math of life: Add Jesus to your life (Romans 10:9-10); multiply your good works (2 Corinthians 9:8); divide your blessings with others (2 Corinthians 9:11); and subtract all your fears/sins (James 4:8, 1 Peter 5:7) equals to a wonderful life (Psalm 16:11).

Niloob ng Diyos na maranasan natin ang maraming pagsubok sa buhay. Ang mawalan, masaktan, mabigo, mapahiya, mainis, magkamali, magkasala. Di upang wasakin ang buhay na kaloob sa atin kundi ang matutunan natin ang magpakumbaba, magpatawad, umunawa, magbigay, magmalasakit, at magmahal ng lubos. At sa bawatpagsubok na ating napagtagumpayan, kaloob nito ang ibayong sigla at tapang upang harapin ang hamon ng bukas na puno ng pag-asa.

Five pieces of wisdom from the sands of the desert:

Farthest from us is not the moon nor stars, but time that had passed.
Biggest is not the mountain nor the sun, but our dream and desire.
Heaviest weight is not the elephant nor iron, but responsibility.
Sharpest is neither knife or sword but our tongue.
Lightest is neither wind nor feathers but prayers.

A consistent faithful life is evidently shown when we live our Biblical ideals not for the applause of men, but for the audience of one.

------------------Abundance is not what we gather but what we scatter, not what we keep but what we give away, not what we hold but what we share.

------------------It’s when our cup is empty that God fills them up.

God’s unseen presence comforts me. I know He’s always near. And when life’s storms besiege my soul, he says My child don’t fear. I am here.

Calmness of mind is one of the crown jewels of wisdom. The more tranquil you are, the greater is your power for good. Self control is strength. Right thought is mastery. Calmness is power. May you be blessed with inner peace.

We are God’s people. Living Christian morality is a joyful struggle knowing we are all together joined with Christ. Loving God and loving one another make us Christ’s body. – Mel A.

-----------------------Sin brings fear, confession freedom. ODB

God gives hope to those who dream but miracles to those who believe. He never lets down those who trust him and never leaves those who walk with him.

Christ will always accept the faith that puts its trust in him. Andrew Murray

-----------------------Small things done with great love can change the world. Mother Teresa

The shortest powerful name I know is God, the greatest abundant word I know is bless, and the person I wish all the best today and for my prayers is you.

Prayer is, to the skeptic, a delusion, a waste of time. To the believer, it represents perhaps the most important use of time. Philip Yancey

Because we are the most forgiven people in the world, we should be the most forgiving people in the world. CJ Mahaney

What is charity? It is silence when your words would hurt, patience when you’re being hurt, deafness when scandal flows, thoughtfulness for another’s woes, sharing whatever little we have, and being kind rather than being right most of the time. (I’d add that it is also correcting wrongdoing and mocking evil when it is shameless and abusive.-RO)

Prayer for my friends

Dear Father, bless my friends reading this, I pray. Minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain, give them peace and mercy. Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence in your ability to work through them. Where there is weariness, give them understanding, patience and strength as they learn to submit to your leading. Where there is spiritual stagnation, reveal t them your nearness, draw them into greater intimacy with you. Where there is fear, expose your love and release to them your courage. Where there is sin blocking them from You, reveal it and break its hold over their life. Bless their finances, give hem greater vision, and raise up family and friends to support and encourage them. Give each of them discernment to recognize the evil forces around them, and reveal to them the power they have in you to defeat them. In Jesus, name, Amen.
