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.

From Philippines to Netherlands, with love.

An invisible thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place and circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle. But it will never break.

Do you believe that you just don’t meet someone for nothing? Or do you think there is a reason on why we bump on a random person? I certainly believe God brings people in our lives for a purpose.

A month after I resigned from work, I started to play my brother’s game which is GTA 5 Online. Probably out of boredom that’s why. As days pass by, I started to fell in love with the game. Eventually, I interact with other players and gained friends. But among all these players, one male player caught my attention. He is an 18 year old guy from Netherlands. At first, we were not really interested with each other unless it’s about the game. Until one time, I asked the guy where he is from. So he said he’s from Netherlands. Silly of me to think that he said he’s from Manila! I accidentally misinterpret Netherlands from Manila. Funny but true! I don’t know how it happened, so I immediately asked him if he has social networking accounts and he said, yes. Then, I gave him my instagram account and asked if he could add me up.

After seeing his instagram account, I was shocked how handsome he is! If I were to describe this guy, he could already be compared to Austine Mahone. Way better though! On his side, he saw my instagram as well. To my surprise, he said out loud how good looking I am, LIVE on the game! I couldn’t feel so giddy anymore because the feeling is so mutual!

So we started to have small talks, until we exchanged our numbers. And it happened over night! I couldn’t be happier for giving him my number because he is such a nice guy! Although he’s 7 years younger than me, he has bigger dreams and goals. Unfortunately, he’s about to enter the Dutch military at the end of the year.

I hope this is not the last of my story with the Dutch guy.
