Man of God.

“He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD. (Proverbs 18:22)”

Gentlemen, building your career, saving money, getting a huge house, and buying a sports car is NOT wrong. Problems occur when you START to get your IDENTITY on these things.

When you chase the earthly things, the devil finds an opportunity to ATTACK, and STOP you from becoming the man whom God wants you to be. You seek your IDENTITY from money, career or material things, and if it is taken away, you lose yourself. You will NEVER ACCOMPLISH SUCCESS because you are controlled by other elements. 

God wants you to have a VISION. He ordained you to LEAD and TAKE CHARGE. It is better to be MOTIVATED by a vision from God, and not from money. Make sure that your SECURITY is not from things that can be taken anytime away from you.

The biggest assignment that the devil launched against you is for you to SQUANDER your FUTURE. It hinders you from receiving the BLESSINGS, REJOICING and ENJOYING what God planned for you. 

The bible says, he who finds a WIFE finds FAVOR from God. It means — God will bless you EVEN MORE when you’re not afraid to COMMIT. 

When God knows you have a FAMILY to BUILD, He blesses you MORE with eternal and material things. A WIFE is a GIFT from God, because SHE is your HELPER. For is not good for man to be alone, and you need a helper. 

Hence, seek His kingdom first and everything shall be added to you.

Proverbs 31 Woman. 

“For your Maker is your husband– the LORD Almighty is his name– the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth. (Isaiah 54:5)”

Ladies, NEVER look for love at the wrong places. Do not allow your insecurity to cripple from broken relationships, marriages or separation of your parents. God has AMAZING PLANS for your future.

God wants you to know that He alone can give you the love you are longing for. He loves you unconditionally.

The thing is, even if a man of God comes into your life and you are not spiritually ready yet, you will only fail your future spouse. You will only put this man on a pedestal expecting him to satisfy your needs. 

Remember the bible says from Romans 3:23, “humans fall short of the glory of God.” Having said, even a GODLY MAN will sooner or later hurt you, because HE IS NOT GOD. 

Rather, allow God to work on you. Be that Proverbs 31 Woman who knows what she wants in her life.

Idolizing Marriage.

“Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. (Hebrews 12:12)”

Have you ever wanted something in your life, so badly? Whether it is your job, money, fame or a person, we all have secret desires. In my case, I want MARRIAGE.

Following Jesus for almost two years takes a lot of effort. Actually, not from you, but Him. 

After submitting my life to Christ, and being single for a year, I thought I was all set. I was mentally, psychologically and physically prepared for my future spouse. I prayed hard for Him to answer. I was very impatient.

I started asking God for a husband, until He sent what I needed. Yet, I was slow and careful in entering this relationship because I never wanted to get hurt. Nevertheless, I still grabbed the opportunity because of God’s comfirmation.

Over the course of our relationship, I know HE IS THE ONE — simply because GOD SAID SO

I started rushing things, bringing the idea of marriage into it. In my mind, I have this picture of him and I saying our vows in the eyes of God. However, my future spouse isn’t ready yet. 

He asked me to wait, while working on his relationship with God and his dreams. Although I completely understand what he wants, I started losing my patience.

I started to question Jesus regarding the man He sent me. My fears crippled in my heart, and raised in my thoughts. I tried to take things on my own, almost acted in God’s behalf. 

I was selfish, not thinking about how my future spouse would feel. I constantly tried ending our relationship. Forcing him to marry me, else I would leave him. I even prayed hard to God, and asked for his wisdom over and over again if this relationship is really a part of His plans.

Until one day, I encountered this ministry about “Praying for your Future Spouse.” I realized that it is neither God nor my future spouse that was wrong, rather it was ME.

I idolized the idea of marriage. In my head, I created this picture of wedding and fairy tale endings. Thinking that it is okay to be in love with the idea because marriage is from God. The bible said, it is not good for man to be alone. So I craved for it, and I WAS WRONG. It became my IDOL.

I REPENTED and asked for God’s FORGIVENESS. I prayed for God to cleanse my heart of impurities, or anything that takes me away from His love. That He still needs to be NUMBER ONE in my life. 

I realized marriage will NEVER complete me, that it takes HARD WORK of patience and unconditional love. And I’m not quite ready for that yet.

Nevertheless, God is FAITHFUL enough to continuously work on my heart, preparing me to be the RIGHT PERSON for my future spouse. He asked me to TRY IT AGAIN, but this time, WITH HIM. Thus, simply enjoying the courting period with my boyfriend, and helping each other to grow closer to Him. 

Meanwhile, I will continue what God ordained me to do — MINISTRY. Waiting period could get lonely, but I know God is able. That He operates in SEASONS, so surely it will happen no matter how long it takes. All I need is FAITH



And to my boyfriend, know that I will wait for you — when you’re finally ready because God already told you so.

Family Salvation. 

“What if some were unfaithful? Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God?” (Romans 3:3)

Life as a follower of Jesus does not make me perfect. I questioned God on prayers left unanswered. Oftentimes, I am impatient.

Yes, my actions may have failed. However, God is FAITHFUL to finish what He started. He strengthened me during my weakness. He lifted me up, when I was down. He had faith in me, when I have none.

True enough, the long wait is over! 

Two of my family members who neglected Jesus for the longest time, started knowing Christ. My dad surrendered his life to Jesus recently, while my brother started attending bible study and services. Praise Jesus! 

I am in awe of God’s faithfulness. From FAMILY PERSECUTION turned into HOUSEHOLD SALVATION, indeed Lord Jesus Christ kept His promises!

Now, if you are reading this testimony, DO NOT LOSE HOPE. It is never too late to surrender your life to Jesus. The bible says, “seek His kingdom first and everything shall be added to you.”

Believe in God’s faithfulness. Trust that He will make everything beautiful in His time. Keep the faith! ❤️

To You. 

In love, there is no fear. Rather, perfect love casts out fear.

1 John 4:18

No amount of words could ever describe the pain I feel at the moment. The feeling is so familiar. It reminds me of a situation occured in the past that led me completely to God’s arms.

Before I said “yes” to the relationship, I deeply prayed about it. In which every decision I take, I ask God for His guidance. 

I still remember those times I always want to leave because I was so scared to fall in love again. However, God asked me to STAY and I did. Trusting God without having any assurance is walking by faith. As Christians, we are called to trust in the Lord. In which, I did exactly as commanded. I could not forget this instagram post, 

Try again, this time with God.

And so I did..

I might not understand what’s happening, all I know is what I feel for you — I love you.. so much.. I prayed for you.. I prayed for God’s will.. I prayed for you to surrender your life to Him.. That you will love and honor God more than me.. 

Trust me, I never wanted to give up. I want to stay. I could trade anything in the world now, just to be with you. 

I may be so scared right now, on what will happen. All I know is that God loved me unconditionally knowing that I might never love Him back, and as a Christian — He wants me to be Christlike. He wants me to LOVE unconditionally with NO FEAR. And that is what I want to do..

Doubting God.

For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and future. ❤️ 

Jeremiah 29:11

Did you ever question God? Did you ask why you have pain despite surrendering everything to Him?

Lately, my mind drifts away. Life seems to be tougher than ever. It reached the point I asked why I have struggles, anxiety and fear. To think that I’ve surrendered my life to Him. I did my part as His follower. I tried my best to share the gospel to others. All my decisions are based on His words. What could possibly go wrong?

Nevertheless, I started to feel depress. I even thought of going back to my old lifestyle, where life is way easier and carefree. Each day, “I ask, why Lord? Why do I have pain? “..

However, God is PATIENT. He knows I am weak. He is able to handle my ambiguities or doubts. More than that, God is FAITHFUL. He ALWAYS keeps His PROMISES. No amount of sin can ever change God’s mind for His greater plans and purpose in my life. 

All those times I doubted, there was no instance He never answered my questions. God wants me to HOLD ON. He wants me to have FAITH on Him. I may not understand what’s going on right now, but I TRUST Him. God knows what He is doing and He is in STILL in CONTROL. 

I realized it was never what I did for Him, rather it’s what Jesus Christ did for me in the cross — when He gave His life for my eternal life. The most perfect description of unconditional love (John 3:16). ❤️

What about you? Do you trust God?

Keep the faith in Him.

God didn’t bring you this far to abandon you.

A few days ago, I have never felt so much pain in my heart. After I broke up with my ex boyfriend of six years, I felt complete sadness. Things got worse when the Dutch boy also left me after a week of making me fall for him. My world suddenly fell apart. The pain was so severe that I couldn’t afford to go on with life. I was completely insane, so I called my friends every night to get drunk and wasted. I thought drinking would take away the sadness, but I was wrong. Yes, it made me feel numb for a moment, but immense after being sober. My mind and heart are completely shattered.

During this downfall, it was when I completely felt the presence of our Lord. He made His way to help me and bring me back up to live. When I was alone and scared, it was God who was there and ready to love me UNCONDITIONALLY. So I prayed and decided to submit myself wholeheartedly to Him. But in order for me to do that, I asked for everyone’s forgiveness especially those whom I hurt and caused pain. Moreover, I sacrificed all the superficial things that I once didn’t want to let go.

After doing all these, I have never felt so much relief and happiness! The genuine happiness and peace of mind that I’m longing for are given to me. God made His way into my heart because I submitted myself to Him. Silly of me not to realize that all He ever wanted is for me to submit my heart and soul. Even if it caused me everything! For I know that God will never abandon me.

Now, I want to share this reflection to all of you. Seek His love and you’ll forever be happy. His love alone could complete us.
