Tadaima! (I'm back!)

Been busy these past few weeks and finally got time to write again. A lot happened recently - busy at work, attended concerts and events, saw awesome movies and learned some life lessons along the way. 

Work - Still adjusting to my new daily routine. Arriving at work by 10am and leaving by 8pm. Got some new friends, thankful to the epic conversations 'bout school pride and rivalries. Haha Grateful that by next month I'll be handling tasks of a Project Manager. Favor.

Hillsong United - Had an amazing night worshiping with this great guys from Australia. Thank you for coming! And as the music style progress , same message will always be the heart of every song. Aftermath.

IFP Boot Camp - Fire!

Azkals - Sold out tickets in 2 hours! Got mine :)

Kung Fu Panda 2 - Inner Peace. Will make a separate blog for this movie. Has a lot of substance in the storyline. Must watch!

We're All In This Together. - This documentary literally changed my view in life and humanity. It blew me away. Grace at its best!

Sometimes we can be caught up doing almost anything and doing life, instead we find ourselves exhausted and empty. Make Jesus first in everything and you'll see the difference it'll make in your daily life. 

Still growing in faith and enjoying this relationship I don't deserve. Real love.

Doing Life Together.

God is doing great things in different churches worldwide. The message of discipleship is universal nowadays. Seminars, conferences and programs all around the corner. But at the end of the day, I'm hoping that it will not be all about the numbers (I'm not denying its significance.) and church growth but Honoring God and Making Disciples.

I've been blessed to have some mentors during my student days. Credits to Kuya Nathan and Kuya Mark. Both of them have been so good to me. They were there when I needed prayers. They were there when I needed someone to talk to. I thank them for all the wisdom and advice they gave to me. Those words really helps in building my faith and staying strong. Yes, they have faults. They are not perfect. Still it is great to know that some people took time to invest their lives to me.  

That's discipleship. Discipleship is relationship. 

Discipleship can be found in small groups, where in our case, we call it LIFE GROUPS. These groups are essential in a way that it helps everyone involved to grow and learn in their Christian journey. Attending church services is great but you cannot experience growth without the fellowship with other believers. You may have questions that can't  be answered during big gatherings so it's very important to have someone to help you in one way or another.

So what do we do in LIFE GROUPS? Simple. Study God's Word. Learn. Pray for one another. Share stories. Eat together! It's just doing life together. :)

Go Small. Grow BIG.

Finally, got time to sit down and blog again. Been a while.

I read my previous posts about my job hunting and it amazes how God has been really faithful in my life. I'm now working as a Junior Operations Officer at Information Gateway in Makati and part of the SMART Communications Team. My prayer 3 months ago, was to work in SMART. In one way or another, IG was outsourced by SMART for their Value-Added-Services (coincidence? nah!?!). 2 days ago, I got my first paycheck and it was fulfilling. Grateful. The stress and work loads finally paid off. Now, the challenge for me is to be a good steward of my finances. Haha. I'm working on it. Planning to buy great stuff. Will save money for that. Excited.

The past three weeks have been really busy for me adjusting with the work schedules and environment. Excellence and submission are primarily the character needed for everyone to achieve success in any professional career. I made some mistakes. Learned things the hard way. Still, it will help me grow as an employee and as a person.  Newbie here (valid excuse :P)

Got some new friends and they are great people. Masipag. Hope to know them more.

That's all for now.

Then Jesus asked them, “Would anyone light a lamp and then put it under a basket or under a bed? Of course not! A lamp is placed on a stand, where its light will shine. Mark 4:21

Took time to read and meditate this verse earlier this morning before I started with my first day at work. Indeed, God has His ways in making things happen. I don't understand it but there's excitement if you don't know everything (I'm talking about my job hunting experience, but that's a different story). 

I was praying for the past few days how can my life be a blessing to other people, especially to the people at our office. This verse says it all. 
    Light - Jesus 
    Lamp - Me/You/Us
    Stand - Community (school, office, neighborhood, organisation)

    Make sure you get the Light from the light Himself, Jesus. How? Through His word, His Church and His people. The lamp symbolized our life. Make yourself available to get some light. You can't shine if you are not connected to the source. Very basic yet neglected. Have a regular quiet time. Pray. Enjoy  the company of fellow believers. Apply what you learned.

    Next question is, where can I shine? Where you are right now is the very place where God wants you to shine. Everything happens for a reason. It's no accident you are in that school or in that company. God knows and He has a plan. A perfect plan. Better listen and do our part.

    When I shine, you shine, We all shine bright. There's too much darkness going on. Spread some light. 

    Will leave you with this verse.

    In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16

    Hi. I have a gift for you tonight. 

    "Under the thin, crisp air
    It was white everywhere
    droplets of rain are being throwed
    By heaven, on us they were throwed
    You looked....I stumble
    It was love at 48th sight
    It was 'my' love, again
    and for more."
