For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.
I was in second year high school when the great love of God found me. I had this classmate na palagi na lang nangungumusta sa akin at nagkukwento. At that time, I thought, "ang FC naman nito masyado." Later on did I know that it was her way of making rapport with me, to introduce me to the One.
My classmate invited me to join a youth camp named as, R.I.O.T.-Reaching In and Out Together. Noong una, ayaw ko ring sumama. Kung anu-anong dahilan ang sinabi ko. But she (my classmate) got my attention when she said, "Nadja bayad ko na ang lahat ng kakailanganin mo. Kailangan mo na lang pumunta." And so, I finally said yes.
The youth camp taught me a lot of things like unity, endurance, persevarance and teamwork. I met a lot of new, kind, amazing friends. But most importantly, in that camp, I came face to face with my Creator. The first night was when I really felt the Holy Spirit. The feeling was so sudden and inexpressible. The joy was unfathomable. The satisfaction was overflowing. That was my first encounter with Jesus Christ-March 25, 2005.
And so, I will never be ashamed of what brought me to the life eternal that I am experiencing with my Lord Jesus Christ.💖 (To be continued...) #unashamedoftheGospel#yourkingdomcome#buhayG-12

Have you ever tried on a piece of clothing you just knew would look bomb on you only to discover that you really looked like a bomb 💣?🤦🏽♀️🙄. Yeah, has happened to me several times!👚👗👖
Now use that same imagery when it comes to the ways of God. Why is it that so many of us Christians still try to fit in with the ways of the world when God has changed us? Why do we try so hard to be common with the ways of sin? Sis, it’s not worth it. Stop the struggle and just accept the tailor- made clothing God created just for you.🕊😇🌻💕. Besides, after a while, ill-fitting clothes become more of a burden than helpful.#brokenbutbeautifullyrestored
“Don’t lie to one another. You’re done with that old life. It’s like a filthy set of ill-fitting clothes you’ve stripped off and put in the fire. Now you’re dressed in a new wardrobe. Every item of your new way of life is custom-made by the Creator, with his label on it. All the old fashions are now obsolete. Words like Jewish and non-Jewish, religious and irreligious, insider and outsider, uncivilized and uncouth, slave and free, mean nothing. From now on everyone is defined by Christ, everyone is included in Christ.”
-Colossians 3:9-11 MSG

“But what if I fall? Oh my darling, but what if you fly?”- Erin Hanson
During a one-on-one conversation with God, I learned that one of my fears goes beyond failing...but actually succeeding. I know that sounds all kinds of crazy but it’s the truth.🌻
I felt that if I succeeded then I’d be faced with a new, harder level of challenges and hurdles. This type of thinking has kept me from achieving so much in my life.🌻
This morning I shared some intimate things with my husband concerning this topic and I couldn’t help but feel embarrassed. And though he reassured me not to feel that way, I still did a little.🌻
Outside looking in, people are quick to assume that I have it all together. I’ve been hated on about it, women have become jealous towards me about it, stopped talking to me, heck even blocked me on social media platforms 🤦🏽♀️🤷🏽♀️.🌻
And while I can’t change their ways of thinking nor do I strive to convince them otherwise, my presence on social media and/or in person is to break that dumb facade that so many of us put up- especially Christian women- that we got it all together! We’ve got to be upfront with our battles and real about our situations.🌻
I’m reprogramming my mind to believe (ONE) the whole truth of God’s word and (TWO) that whatever He places in my path, I most certainly can do it because it’s being done in His strength and not mine!🌻
So I encourage you to be honest with your shortcomings- work on them but continue to strengthen your strengths. And please don’t give in to the opinions and commentary of those who could really care less about you anyway. Work and improve all for the Kingdom of God! Happy Friday!!🌻❤️#brokenbutbeautifullyrestored
“But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.”- Jeremiah 17:7-8 NLT

“Be Ashamed of Your Sinfulness and Bad Choices, but Never be Ashamed of the One who Rescued You; our Savior & Lord Jesus Christ nor of Believing and Following Him!” *+* Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:33, New King James Version (NKJV)
33 “But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.” *+* For the Scripture states
2 Timothy 1:8 New King James Version (NKJV)
8 “Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God,” *+* Instead of living boldly for sin, live out loud and boldly for Jesus Christ according to Romans 1:16-17, which states, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "BUT THE RIGHTEOUS man SHALL LIVE BY FAITH."
This is a refreshing and uplifting message ! If you’ve ever struggled with depressions and anxiety I strongly recommend it ! I urge you to put preconceived notions of church and faith aside and dive in and listen. If nothing you’ll gain a little encouragement . Be blessed and have a great day.
