UNCONQUERABLE: My own version of INVICTUS

I wrote this poem some three years ago before my Surgery and Radioactive Iodine, I didn’t know anything about Jesus, about His healing power yet He had been with me even when I was not even thinking of Him, I relied on my own strength, trusted my own not knowing there is a greater God after all who can heal all kinds of diseases.

Through the ups and downs,
over  the rough and ease of life

Remarkably enduring people whose setbacks turned to be an ambition
remained strong and unshaken

In the midst of all nerve-wracking fiasco
remained to be holding on to the myriad dreams

Unsought and unasked yet their hearts are filled with so much joy
for the magnitude of their hardships corresponds to their hearts’ desires

Moving, Steering, Moving forward to the direction known as success
no hesitation, no surrender, no retreat until victory is attained

Prevailing ’til the end of time, ‘Tis a battle I want to win, ‘Tis a battle I shall win
A battle where no one gets hurt, no pain all but gain

Havoc is everywhere, And hope is power
Two confounding options I shall revere.

And I shall use these means to become stronger and emerge a winner
I shall not fear!  I shall not fear!

No suffering will ever be worth it without overcoming
In life, we all have to fight instead of crying and whining

To the cancer cells growing in my neck, to the cancer cells which make my life even more worthwhile
I shall fight, I shall win and I shall stand with a smile.

 

Now that I am a born again Christian, here’s my own version of INVICTUS (Unconquerable)

PSALM 27

The Lord is my light and my salvation—

whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the stronghold of my life—

of whom shall I be afraid?

When the wicked advance against me

to devour me,

it is my enemies and my foes

who will stumble and fall.

Though an army besiege me,

my heart will not fear;

though war break out against me,

even then I will be confident.

One thing I ask from the Lord,

this only do I seek:

that I may dwell in the house of the Lord

all the days of my life,

to gaze on the beauty of the Lord

and to seek him in his temple.

For in the day of trouble

he will keep me safe in his dwelling;

he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent

and set me high upon a rock.

Then my head will be exalted

above the enemies who surround me;

at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;

I will sing and make music to the Lord.

Hear my voice when I call, Lord;

be merciful to me and answer me.

My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”

Your face, Lord, I will seek.

Do not hide your face from me,

do not turn your servant away in anger;

you have been my helper.

Do not reject me or forsake me,

God my Savior.

Though my father and mother forsake me,

the Lord will receive me.

Teach me your way, Lord;

lead me in a straight path

because of my oppressors.

Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,

for false witnesses rise up against me,

spouting malicious accusations.

I remain confident of this:

I will see the goodness of the Lord

in the land of the living.

Wait for the Lord;

be strong and take heart

and wait for the Lord.1 minute ago 0 likes

It’s summer time. I don’t enjoy so much water and so much heat of the sun and so much traveling (5hours bus ride) and of course so much expenses. But these things change when I gave myself a chance to enjoy God’s beautiful and impeccable works. 

Life is so simple. Just enjoy the simple things offered to you and that is pretty much it. If you want to be reminded of God’s promises, God’s works just simply experience sunrise, sunset, beach, look at the sun, feel the waves, relish your freedom of time, even watching the dark abyss can be a pleasure too.Life is an adventure, if you don’t want to try it, you will miss the fun.

I was exposed to the scorching,nagging heat of the sun for over 6 hours (including the life threatening boat ride) and boy, it was one of the best day of my life. The waves, just even the waves,playing with the waves, it was perfect. And I was at peace, not just because I saw the sunrise and the sunset but the fact that I was able to appreciate God for His works. Simple yet beautiful. Very Beautiful. Thank you Lord.

 

P.s: These photos were taken from my beautiful Land Philippines, at a small Island called Malapascua, its old name was Lugon/Logon. Home of the thresher sharks. (Sounded scary, but the Island possesses a mysterious beauty)

What is God doing in your life right now?

Is He moving in your life? Do you feel His
love every waking day of your life?

So here I am at the airport waiting for my
flight back to Davao City. We checked out early
from the hotel but our flight will be in six hours
from now. Waiting. Idle. I decided to
rummage on my laptop for movies I haven’t watched.
My friend Rose gave me movies and told me
to watch it but because of my hectic and toxic
schedule, I haven’t opened it. Or was it because
my being a Christian is a mediocre. She gave
me Darren Wilson’s movies entitled Finger of God,
Furious Love, and Father of Lights. Finger of
God was documented way back 2007, I was probably
still out there in the world of lost, out
there in the world full of lies. She told me so
many times already to watch it, but these movies
stayed dormant in my laptop for days now.

But today,today is the day that I should know
all these things about God,hope,power,glory,Gospel,
miracle,love,love, love above all.

Here are some few things I noted down
-Act on what you believe
-Messiah means hope of glory
-God is moving in power today
-Be willing to learn
-If we are in Christ. All of us have the Holy Spirit.
We have the same resource. All of us have God communing
with us.
-God is the most exciting, captivating being in the
world.
-If you are not at peace for God, you are not
gonna be at peace of the powerful miracles next to
you.
-When we believe God, we should be poor in
spirit, Be child like so we will depend on our
Father and not depend our own strength.
-Stop and Love.
-When you love somebody, you will like what they do
-Love is the greatest power in the universe.
-God is calling all of us to a life of power, but
that power can only come when we humble ourselves
and set aside fears and unbeliefs.
-The biggest miracle is learning how to love.
-God is real. God is relevant.
-Be in love with God, Love everyone!

Miracles do happen. And the purpose of miracles is
to meet the God of miracles.Lord, I have set my
heart ready for You,everyday of my life. Lord that I
pray and cry out to you not because I need
miracles to happen, not because I want something done.
I pray because without praying, breathing would be
impossible too.

What is God doing in my life right now?

Am I living a holy life so I would become holy like Him?
This world is full of temptations,full of lies. I
stumble over and over again. The first point says,
Act on what you believe. Act not just say it. Lord,
I trust you that you will heal all areas of my life.
That I will be able to surrender all areas of my life
be it financial,emotional,physical,mental,moral,spiritual.
Like a child I will depend on you, Father.

For years, I have been praying that my father here
on earth will come to serve You, will feel your love
Father, make me that instrument. Lord, I thank you
for the love that you gave me and I will use Your Love
to serve and love others.

Tell me what’s your story?

Smile because you can

Refreshing

Vibrant

Pulsating with life and vigor

That’s what this picture is telling me. Wake up! 2014 is here. It’s another year to enjoy life, to discover something new. Living life is not a routine, there is always something new and refreshing. I made it a habit to wake up in the morning, smiling and thanking God for another beautiful day. As a matter of fact I want to change my NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION for this year.  I’ve written so many NEW YEAR’s resolution, first on the list is to lose some unwanted weight,some unnecessary subcutaneous and visceral fats, and the list goes on with the things I want to change for this year. But while looking at this picture and while writing this note, I realized that there is only one thing I want to do, SMILE. 

Smile and be able to appreciate little things. Smile and be able to say thank you to Him. Smile and be able to say I love you to your loved ones. Smile. Think of happy thoughts (as what Peter Pan said). Think of happy situation (as what Marivi reminded). Just smile even when you are in difficult situation.

Smile,because it makes life more beautiful

Peace and Tranquility is found inside your heart

God, give me a new heart that I may be able to forgive others and forgive myself most especially. I release forgiveness, even to those who have not asked for it. Lord, that I may be forgiven by others whom I hurt the most. That all broken relationships will be restored, in thy Name. I cannot continue to live each day knowing that I cannot forgive others and myself. I cannot function normally knowing that someone is bothered by my existence. Lord, heal my heart, give me Peace…Peace which transcends all kinds of understanding. I am aware of my Continue reading

Life is short so ENJOY

tic tac tic tac tic tac says the clock. Time is running fast. Time is running so one should do something. There’s a recent death in the neighborhood I would like to share, a six year old boy who had brain tumor and fought a good fight and finally God decided to see him so off he went and bid goodbye to this chaotic yet beautiful world. Well,what I am trying to say is…Time is gold. It is precious. It is too precious that we should not spend our days regretting our past decisions, our misfortunes, our mistakes. There is so much we can do today. I have over seven near death experiences yet I feel like I have never really lived at all. The death of this little boy made me realize that I am so lucky and blessed, it also reminded me that life is too short. I have lived over 27 years therefore life has been good to me. We don’t own our lives, our tomorrow is unknown and untold. So spend each day with no more nonchalance and mundane, make it extra ordinary. With these realizations I want to make my bucket list.

Things I want to have,Things I want to do, Places I want to see, Experiences I sure want to try.
