Believing that TRUE LOVE WAITS, I trust God’s sovereignty that He is in control of absolutely everything including my love life. I trust God’s wisdom that He knows when I’ll be ready to enter a biblical relationship and that His timing is always perfect and I trust God’s unfailing love with everything I am.

As I wait for TRUE LOVE, I would seek more of God, to love Him more, study His word and deepen my relationship with Him, to guard my heart, to guard my thoughts, to look at others in a different light to strive for purity and to think my “singleness” as a blessing.

And if the right time comes that I would enter a biblical relationship, I make a commitment to God, myself, my family, my friends, my future mate and my future children to be sexually abstinent from this day until the day I get married.

TRUE LOVE knows that all is worth the wait. I pray that God will empower me to be person of truth and wisdom, by doing so; I agree that God’s ways are best for me,

May this pledge I made be a constant reminder of my commitment before God, before this church, and if God wills, before my future marriage partner.

Love songs

January 29, 2008

A wedding song, and my heart was deeply touched by these simple yet genuine, heart-felt song
And who knows one day, this will be sung in my own wedding day…
But, hindi man, still I love this song, a relationship that is built with love, faith and hope.
One day, I’ll say “I do” to the one whom He brought from up above for me, only for me.
It’ll be worth all the waiting for him and for that special day.

          This Day

This day two lives become one
This day a new journey has begun
Our hearts full of lasting love
Brought together by the hand above

To share a life that draws us closer
To the one that we live for

And I will give you my heart
And all of who I am
And I will give more than vows
And words could ever say
Yes I’ll give you my all on this day
On this day

On the cross his love was shown
And this love will build our home
Standing now in front of you
We profess a love we know is true

To share a life that draws us closer
To the one that we live for

And I will give you my heart
And all of who I am
And I will give more than vows
And words could ever say
Yes I’ll give you my all on this day
And I’ll give you my all on this day

And I will give you my heart
And all of who I am
And I will give more than vows
And words could ever say
Yes I’ll give you my all (on this day)

And I will give you my heart
And all of who I am
And I will give more than vows
And words could ever say
Yes I’ll give you my all on this day
And I’ll give you my all on this day

On this day, on this day

I've watched the sunrise in your eyes
And I've seen the tears
fall like the rain
You've seen me fight so
brave and strong
You've held my hand when I'm afraid

We've watched the seasons come and go
We'll see them come and go again
But in winter's chill,
or summer's breeze
One thing will not be changin'

We will dance
When the sun is shining
In the pouring rain
We'll spin and we'll sway
And we will dance
When the gentle breeze
Becomes a hurricane
The music will play
And I'll take your hand
And hold you close to me
And we will dance

Sometimes it's hard to hold you tight
Sometimes we feel so far apart
Sometimes we dance as one
And feel the beating of
each others hearts

Some days the dance is slow and sweet
Some days we're bouncing off the walls
No matter how this world may turn
Our love will keep us from fallin'

And we will dance
When the sun is shining
In the pouring rain
We'll spin and we'll sway
And we will dance
When the gentle breeze
Becomes a hurricane
The music will play
And I'll take your hand
And hold you close to me
And we will dance

The music will play
And I'll hold you close
And I won't let you go
Even when our steps
Grow weak and slow
Still I'll take your hand
And hold you close to me
And we, will dance

“Thus says the Lord ‘I remember the kindness of your youth…” JEREMIAH 2:2

Am I as spontaneously kind to God as I used to be, or am I only expecting God to be kind to me? Does everything in my life fill His heart with gladness, or do I constantly complain because things don’t seem to be going my way? A person who has forgotten what God treasures will not be filled with joy. It is wonderful to remember that Jesus Christ has needs which we can meet— “Give Me a drink” (John 4:7). How much kindness have I shown Him in the past week? Has my life been a good reflection on His reputation?

God is saying to His people, “You are not in love with Me now, but I remember a time when you were.” He says, “I remember . . . the love of your betrothal . . .” (Jeremiah 2:2). Am I as filled to overflowing with love for Jesus Christ as I was in the beginning, when I went out of my way to prove my devotion to Him? Does He ever find me pondering the time when I cared only for Him? Is that where I am now, or have I chosen man’s wisdom over true love for Him? Am I so in love with Him that I take no thought for where He might lead me? Or am I watching to see how much respect I get as I measure how much service I should give Him?

As I recall what God remembers about me, I may also begin to realize that He is not what He used to be to me. When this happens, I should allow the shame and humiliation it creates in my life, because it will bring godly sorrow, and “godly sorrow produces repentance . . .” (2 Corinthians 7:10).

Casting crowns

Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth
Would care to know my name
Would care to feel my hurt.
Who am I, that the Bright and Morning Star
Would choose to light the way
For my ever wandering heart.

Not because of who I am
But because of what You've done
Not because of what I've done
But because of who You're 

I am a flower quickly fading
Here today and gone tomorrow
A wave tossed in the ocean
A vapor in the wind
Still You hear me when I'm calling
Lord, You catch me when I'm falling
And You've told me who I am
I am Yours, I am Yours

Who Am I, that the eyes that see my sin
Would look on me with love and watch me rise again.
Who Am I, that the voice that calmed the sea
Would call out through the rain
And calm the storm in me

not because of who I am
but because of what You done
not because of what I done 
but because of who You are

I am a flower quickly fading
here today and gone tomorrow
a wave tossed in the ocean(ocean) 
a vapor in the wind
still You here me when I call You 
Lord you catch me when I’m falling
and You told me who I am (I am)
I am yours 

Whom shall I fear
Whom shall I fear
'Cause I am Yours
I am Yours

For all the times that I have measured what is my worth to You,
I became exhausted, loss.
Wretched am I Lord, sinner… unworthy… but still…
You chose to die for me
Because You called me Your own
Because You have seen who I really am
Inside and out
Lord, for all those times that I have
Relied on my own strength and wisdom
You have taught me
I can do nothing without You
Lord I am ashamed of my offences
I cannot enter into Your Holy throne
But You tore the veil
Could not comprehend the vastness
Unfailing, faithful, love to someone like me
but Father… still
I am forever grateful
I am forever humbled
Thank You Lord,
It is not enough
But thank You
My Lord and my God

Year 2007 was a tough year, especially on the month of December- at Christmas Institute.
I wanna learn from all the hurts, disappointments, downfalls, discouragements… my faith, my heart, my love for the Lord was broken. I felt empty, hurt…

But God is a mighty God and He heals all the hurts, all the pains, the burden challenge that was set before me,

And little by little, my heart, my faith, my love is restoring. In times of these, I need silence, and I need space, to reconsider, to think back to learn, to rise again, to trust again, to serve again, to hope again and to love more and deeper, intimately with Him.

I would still be and continually hope in my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

One day, one more time, I would gladly, whole heartedly surrender all, my all to Him.

This time Lord, let me have that peace, that contentment, that stillness into Your loving arms. I know You know my heart’s cry, my heart’s desire Lord, more than I know it. So please, let me know Your will.
Your way
Your promises
Your precious Word…

December 31, 2007

Our CI has just ended yesterday… and I was filled with overwhelming weariness, I was filled with joy and then burdened in serving the 157 youths, I was filled with sorrow and heartaches.

It is saddening to know, that most of what I felt and feel was heartache. I love God and I/ we -tried our best to serve Him faithfully, but it gave me a breaking heart.

I was expecting a transforming, life-changing CI for us all, and I don’t know if I were.

All I can think about is DISCOURAGEMENT, SO BIG that I know I am failing God. So BIG, That I decided to surrender what God has given my faith a “challenge”. I am a FAILURE, I am a COWARD, that when hurt too much, I’m the first to quit. Maybe because I was not born a fighter, all I could do was turn my back and be silent.

I know I failed people around me, my co-officers. They said they have hoped in my leadership. But even I cannot trust that anymore, I am not qualified to be leader. I am not qualified to be the last of all and servant of all. I am so tired and hurt, na alam kong hindi sapat na dahilan para mag-give up... but I asked the Lord, at nagpaalam na ko. So deep was the HURT that even my commitment and service for the Lord was changed and failing.

I know that He wants me to learn from this experience, and now I have seen how WEAK I am as a servant of Christ. I have even seen that I couldn’t no longer stand, without Him who continually gives me strength and I have seen how great His mercy and grace on me.

I have so many struggle in this “servanthood”, that the only thing I know for now, is to QUIT.
God is ALL-KNOWING, and He knows my heart. It breaks my hearts that I chose to no longer be with my execom servants, that for the next year, I could no longer be with them in their struggles. It breaks my heart to say that I gave up first.

Father, I am sorry that I failed You, I am sorry that I am a WEAKLING, na konteng unos lang ay naduduwag at nag-gi-give up na ako. Maybe my heart got tired, maybe because my faith was shattered.

Father as much as I want to serve You, I know I am not worthy to be called by You. In these times of sorrows, doubts, failures, heartaches, I asked Thee Lord, to heal me, and change my heart.
I want to rest in the shadow of Your wings. Only You can CHANGE my HEART O Lord.

Forgive me Father, if I gave up the race towards my faith. But I believe that you have beautiful plans in my life, despite of what is happening to me Lord.

My life is in Your hands O Lord. I could still be praising You, my God, my refuge, and my strength.

Warrior Is A Child
- Gary Valenciano

Lately I've been winning battles left and right
But even winners can get wounded in the fight
People say that I'm amazing
I'm strong beyond my years
But they don't see inside of me
I'm hiding all the tears

They don't know
That I come running home when I fall down
They don't know
Who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and cry for just a while
Cuz deep inside this armor
The warrior is a child

Unafraid because his armor is the best
But even soldiers need a quiet place to rest
People say that I'm amazing
I never face retreat
But they don't see the enemies
That lay me at his feet 

They don't know
That I come running home when I fall down
They don't know
Who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and cry for just a while
Cuz deep inside this armor
The warrior is a child

They don't know
That I come running home when I fall down
They don't know
Who picks me up when no one is around
I drop my sword and look up for a smile
Cuz deep inside this armor (deep inside)
Deep inside this armor
Deep inside this armor
The warrior is a child

The Greatest Is Love

Scripture Reading: 1 Corinthians 13:13
Zero times anything equals zero. It’s a relief to know this when you’re a child learning multiplication. Multiplication problems can be hard, but those with a zero in them are easy: 0x1=0; 0x2=0; 0x3=0; 0x100=0; 0x1,000=0; zero times a million equals zero. Simple, isn’t it?
The math is equally simple, but maybe not so comforting, when you want to figure out the value of your actions. The final product of any action equals that action multiplied by the love you have. If you have zero love, then anything you do, no matter what it is, amounts to zero. Zero times anything equals zero.
The Bible tells us this in 1 Corinthians 13. The apostle Paul writes under inspiration from the Holy Spirit:
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing (v. 1—3).This is one of the most splendid passages in the Bible. But it addresses realities that aren’t so splendid. God originally inspired Paul to write these words to people in Corinth who seemed to have it all—except love.
Some in the church at Corinth spoke in tongues. They were so pleased and so proud of this special gift that they said anybody who didn’t speak in tongues was at best a second—rate Christian, not really filled with the Holy Spirit—or else no Christian at all. But Paul, guided by God, said otherwise. He said that although he could speak in tongues with the best of them, that particular gift isn’t nearly the most important of the Holy Spirit’s gifts, and it certainly isn’t as important as having God’s kind of love. In fact, without love, you could speak every language of men and angels and still be no better than the bong of a gong.
Many at Corinth took pride in having special ties to a particular Christian leader, such as Paul or Apollos or Peter. Some even claimed a special, direct tie with Christ himself. Each group felt superior to others who didn’t have their special ties to their special leader. They felt they had the inside track on prophesy and spiritual mysteries and knowledge. But even if what they claimed were true, what would it amount to without love? Zero. Just hot air, puffing them up and swelling their heads.
A number of Corinthians were into miracles and faith healing. They were so excited about the miraculous power of their faith that they saw no need for Jesus to come again and raise the dead and make all things new. They figured they could do all of that right now! “Who needs the resurrection?“ they wondered. “Who needs heaven? With enough faith, you’re already as good as there!“ And if anybody were suffering from health problems or financial setbacks or spiritual struggles, they simply said, “You just don’t have enough faith! You need to be more like us—the real believers. We have the faith to heal any disease and move any mountain right now—even before Christ comes again.“ But this way of judging other people’s faith and boasting of their own faith showed a lack of love, so the mountain—moving faith on which they prided themselves amounted to a big, fat zero.
Now, God doesn’t say that speaking in tongues or prophetic knowledge or mountain—sized faith are bad. He just says these things don’t amount to anything without love.
But let’s take it a step further? What if I sell everything and give to the poor, and I do it to relieve a guilt complex or simply to prove how generous and unselfish I am? What if I seek martyrdom, and I do it out of a desire to be a hero for my cause? Well, generous giving and heroic self—sacrifice are great things, but if they’re not motivated by the love that comes from God, then even these great things amount to zero.
Figuring out what your life amounts to isn’t a matter of addition. You don’t have a certain total of good deeds and spiritual abilities that then increases a bit if love is added or remains the same if love isn’t added. No, love is the factor that multiplies everything else. If love is present, it dramatically multiplies the value of everything else. If the love factor is zero, it reduces everything else to zero.
So then, the opening part of 1 Corinthians 13 shows how necessary love is. The next part shows what love looks like in action. The word love gets used in many different ways, but what does God’s kind of love look like? It’s not just a warm feeling or a spiritual high. Love shows itself in day—to—day behavior. Love comes from heaven, but it’s down—to—earth. The next thing the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 13 is this:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self—seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails (1 Corinthians 13:4—8).
1.    “Love is patient.“
Translated literally, love “suffers long.“ Love puts up with a lot. Love hangs in there. That doesn’t sound very flashy, does it? We’d like the power to fix every situation that’s broken and to straighten out every person that needs to be straightened out. But patience is the willingness to endure broken situations that don’t seem likely to get fixed any time soon, and to put up with people who may not be straightened out for a very long time——if ever. That’s the power of love. Love suffers long. “Love is patient.“

2.    “Love is kind.“
It’s gentle to fragile people. It’s generous to needy people. It’s tender to hurting people. It’s encouraging to insecure people. It’s helpful to people who need a hand. Love is kind—even to those who don’t deserve kindness. Love repays evil with good, cruelty with kindness. Love prays for persecutors. Love looks for ways to help a bad person become good, to help an enemy become a friend. Love “is kind.“
Now we come to some things love doesn’t do.
1.    Love “does not envy.“
Envy involves resenting someone who is ahead of me and wishing that what’s theirs would be mine instead. Envy comes when I love myself more than others. When somebody else does better in school, when somebody else is the star of the game, when somebody else gets the top job, when somebody else’s kids succeed, envy scowls. But love smiles. Envy wants everything good for oneself. But love is grateful whenever good things happen, whether they happen to me or to others. Love “does not envy.“

2.    Love “does not boast.“
When life is competition, I’ve got to brag. I’ve got to promote myself and advertise myself. If I do something right, I’ve got to make sure somebody else knows about it. If I don’t toot my own horn, my horn might goun—tooted. What’s the use of doing something good if nobody else notices? I have to make sure that other people have the highest possible opinion of me! I have to boast! And in the process, I become more concerned with impressing others than with loving them. Love doesn’t compete for attention and admiration. Instead of trying to get itself noticed, love goes out of its way to notice what’s good in others. Love “does not boast.“

3.    Love “is not proud.“
There may be times when I resist the urge to brag and boast, but I may still keep a secret tally of my own excellence and superiority over others. Love doesn’t do that. When I live in pride, I don’t see my own flaws; or, if I do, I have a ready excuse for them. Pride puts what I do in the best possible light; pride what others do in the worst possible light. That way I come out on top. Love, however, tends to put others first and even to count them as better than myself. Love “is not proud.“

4.    Love “is not rude.“
After all, love is patient and kind, and it’s pretty hard to be patient and kind and to be rude at the same time, isn’t it? Rudeness is saying whatever I feel like saying and doing whatever I feel like doing, no matter who it hurts or how much it offends them. But love doesn’t do that. With love I don’t always have to vent my own feelings; I am more eager to respect the feelings of others. Love is too courteous and respectful and sensitive to be rude and crude.

5.    Love “is not self—seeking.“
 To care only about me and mine, to put the highest priority on getting what I want, to be obsessed with self—esteem and self—fulfillment and self—realization—that self—centeredness is the very opposite of love. If I love others only as long as they follow my wishes, meet my needs, and help my personal development, then I don’t really love them at all—I just like what they do for me. Love “is not self—seeking.“

6.    Love “is not easily angered.“
It has a long fuse. It’s not quick to explode. This doesn’t mean love never gets angry, but it doesn’t get angry quickly or easily. When love does get angry, it’s for good reason. Love gets angry when something is really wrong, not merely when I don’t get my own way. Love is not touchy or irritable. It “is not easily angered.“

7.    Love “keeps no record of wrongs.“
It doesn’t keep a list of past grievances. Once a wrong has been addressed, love leaves it behind. Love has a long memory for the good that others do and a short memory for the wrongs they do. Love is slow to take offense and quick to forgive offenses. Love doesn’t take revenge. Love doesn’t file lawsuits. Love doesn’t hold grudges. Love would rather help others to a better future than chain them to a bad past. It “keeps no record of wrongs.“
Don’t get the wrong impression. Love isn’t just a matter of being “nice“ no matter what sort of evil is going on. Last and not least in the list of things love doesn’t do is this: “Love does not delight in evil.“ Instead, love does the very opposite: it “rejoices with the truth.“
Love does not say, “It doesn’t matter what you do, as long as it makes you happy.“ Love does not delight in evil, even if somebody seems to be enjoying it. Love does not say, “It doesn’t matter what you believe, as long as it works for you.“ Love rejoices with the truth, not with lies and errors and evil.
Can you imagine a mother saying to her children, “It doesn’t matter whether we feed each other poison or pancakes, as long as we all love each other“? How insane! If you love somebody, you want what’s best for them. Love can’t be indifferent to evil and falsehood, or it’s not really love.
TRUE LOVE COMES FROM GOD. It can’t approve anything that is not of God. God’s kind of love wants what is best for others, and evil is never best for anyone——it always destroys in the long run. Truth, on the other hand, always restores and helps, even if it’s unpleasant for a time.
Love does not delight in evil or encourage people to do it, and it doesn’t gloat or rejoice when rivals are caught in their evil. When a person you disagree with or a leader whose policies you oppose falls into evil and scandal, it’s tempting to rejoice. But love does not gloat and say “I told you so“ when evil befalls others. Love stands with the truth, rejoices with the truth, and seeks every possible way to turn people from the harmfulness of evil to the health of God’s truth.
After showing what love never does, 1 Corinthians 13 turns again to the positive and says what love always does: “It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres“ (v. 7). A more literal translation says, “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things“ (v. 7 RSV). In all sorts of different circumstances, LOVE IS ALWAYS LOVE.
1.    Love “always protects.“
Love knows that “a good name is more desirable than great riches“ (Proverbs 22:1), and so it guards the good name of others. Love knows how to keep a secret. Love knows how to keep its mouth shut. Instead of gossiping and shaming others, love looks for ways to build them up. Instead of holding others back, love carries them forward. Now, that doesn’t mean love is one big cover—up——sometimes evil needs to be exposed and punished. But even then, it’s in order to protect: to protect others from being harmed, and to protect the sinner from continuing in sin and self—deception. Love “always protects.“

2.    “Love always trusts.“
Every good relationship depends on trust, and love tends to trust. Love is realistic about the worst in others, but it is ready to believe the best. Even after being hurt and betrayed, love doesn’t surrender to cynicism. And when it’s impossible to trust a certain person, love keeps right on trusting the Source of love, God himself. Love “always trusts.“

3.    “Love always hopes.“
 Love expects the best. When all seems dark, love peers through the darkness to the horizon of the future, always expecting to see the golden rays of sunrise. Love is so confident in God, so sure of the power of love, that it never loses hope that love will have the last word. Love hopes for the best in the lives of all people, even those who seem beyond hope, and love expects the best for the ultimate future of this world because it all depends on God’s mighty love. Love “always hopes.“

4.    Love “always perseveres.“
Love endures all things. Through ups and downs, through joys and disappointments, through every changing circumstances, love remains constant. Love hangs tough. It “always perseveres.“
That’s what love looks like. It comes from heaven, and it’s down to earth. Love is living in this world, powered by something that is not of this world. It is loving the way Jesus loves. Jesus says, “As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another“ (John 13:34—35).
In another place, the Bible says, “Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another“ (1 John 4:7—11).
Love isn’t something we can manufacture on our own. It comes from God, and it comes through Jesus Christ. God saw our sin, our utter failure to love, and in his love he sent his Son to pay for our sins and to empower us to live in love.
If you’re like me, you can’t listen to 1 Corinthians 13 without feeling a sense of failure at how far you fall short of this kind of love, and yet at the same time you feel a sense of joy and renewal that this love has a power all its own to lift us beyond our self—centered loveless—ness to love again.
Trust that the love of Jesus at the cross covers your failures to love. Trust that “God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us“ (Romans 5:5). Then live in the power of that love, and love others as God loves you.
1 Corinthians 13 shows how necessary the love factor is, what love is like, what love never does, what love always does, and then the apostle Paul concludes by showing how long love lasts: love lasts forever. Paul writes:
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:8—13).
Love is the highest expression of supernatural, divine activity. Not tongues, not prophecy, not knowledge—but love. To those who pride themselves on supernatural fireworks, and to those who pride themselves on always being right about everything, Paul says that tongues and prophecy and knowledge—though valuable and important—are also immature and incomplete and temporary. When the end comes and we see Jesus face to face, we will at last know as fully as we are known, and our present knowledge and beliefs will seem like only distorted reflections or childish ideas. As we live our lives now, these things are helpful to give us at least some idea of who God is and what he’s like, but they’ll be left behind when we enter into full experience of the divine and have face—to—face knowledge of the Lord. Many of the spiritual gifts and ways of knowing that we need in this age will be left behind in the age to come.
Love, however, will never be left behind. Love never fails. And so our very highest priority, even now, is to trust God’s unfailing love in Jesus and to live a life of love.
Miracles and knowledge might be nice, but they don’t last. Miracles will not be necessary in the future world where God is all in all. Knowledge—at least the kind we have now—will be swallowed up in the future world where we at last see clearly.
What’s not going to pass away? What’s going to last forever? Three things: faith, hope, and love. Faith is the wonderful trust and certainty that Jesus saves and that God does all things well, a certainty that heaven will confirm completely. Hope is the expectation that the future is bright, an expectation that, in heaven, will extend on into a future that somehow keeps getting better and better for all eternity.
Faith and hope are great, but the greatest is love: love that flows out of eternity past from the very heart of God the Father; love that intersects time in the life and death and resurrection of Jesus Christ; love that enters our life by the Holy Spirit and multiplies everything in our life and makes it worth living; love that goes on and extends into eternity future and lasts forever. WITHOUT THIS LOVE, YOU ARE NOTHING. IN THIS LOVE, YOU HAVE EVERYTHING.
