“Challenges in your life are like weights to an athlete in training. The more weight, the more you have to overcome, the stronger you will get. God allows challenges in your life so that you can gain the strength that comes from conquering them.”

Whenever I hear Mark 10: 43-45, this is the image I get in my head :(
"jesus came not to be served but to serve"
I feeling a calling to not fear because God is with me.
there are things that are in the back of my mind that effect the way I live today. I wish to live with a clear conscience with my thoughts/dreams/ambitions out in the open because I’m not ashamed of my God and my pursuit of God.
Whoever reads this, just pray for me to have courage. Por favor.
“A lot of the Christian buzzwords you hear about being ‘extreme’ and ‘sold out’ don’t make sense in the context of a relationship. I want to have a great relationship with my wife. I want to build trust, and intimacy, and communication. What I don’t want to do is be ‘the most X-tremely married couple of all time!’ That idea doesn’t make sense. Your walk with God is a relationship, not a competition.”
Unka Glen Fitzjerrell on episode 90 of the Say That Podcast
“Even our homes, if they are built for others, could arguably be more remarkable. I don’t object to Christians with nice houses, I object to Christians with closed houses. If you have ever wondered if your house was too big or too nice, my advice is not to dismantle it but to open it up to others. Make it an asset and resource for the kingdom and the game is changed.”
It’s odd loving on other ** American Filipino’s. Idk I always connected well with the ones from the motherland (idk maybe my sister and I’s values are more close to their’s then American Filipino’s (ok I’ll call them AF for short), but I honestly NEVER had a friendship that was one someone who was full Filipino and born in America. Even when I was younger, I just knew something separated my sister and I from other AF’s
I felt that separation again today. Out of place, awkward, very judging as well. Maybe I’m just critical of my people, which unfortunately takes away my ability to love them, and I smother myself with my own pride. But these people are Gods people. I can’t see it right now, but they’re broken, bruised, been lied to, sinned, filled with guilt and shame. And Jesus wants to take away all of that and show them the way to eternal life.
I questioned my reason for why I was trying to reach out to them when not a single person or the organization mention the terrible 7.2 magnitude earthquake that happened yesterday. It breaks my heart to see my people hurting, and it disappointing seeing AF’s not caring about our brothers and sisters in the Philippines. It got me so frustrated…
But the more i think about it, the more I believe that God sent me to them for a reason. My heart cries out not only for AF’s but for my own people in the Philippines. And so my difference can bring out change. I hope that me just going to AFS’ general meeting can help this organization and AF’s be closer to Jesus. And I will pray that God uses me to spread the Gospel to these people.
Teacher split the class into three groups. Each group had to cover a chapter in the book, and then present it 20 minutes later. I was assigned the most information intense section in my group.
Pretty much felt like this during my presentation
As a teacher I fell inadequate in-front of crowds especially with on-the-spot questions and newly learned material.
As a performer I come to life and lose myself in my art.
Give me a speech in front of 10 people and I’ll bomb it. Let me perform the hardest musical piece I know in front of a hundred and I’ll nail it.
But then again, maybe my mindset is wrong, and teaching is really just a performance of passing on knowledge to others.
Thought it was cheezy the first time I listened to it. Now I can’t get it out of my head.
Talking to my friend in high school

It would be fabulous to have a 4-bedroom home. parents, us, boys room, girl’s room. We can create bunk beds like this and have personal study area under each bed! It’s such a great idea :)
