Hi guys! I’ve posted this last February 4 on my wordpress blog (yes, I have many blogs right now hihi) and I want to share this with you because I find it inspiring. :) Please bear with me the dates and days that were written; I did not edit it and I just copied everything from my blog post on wordpress. It’s the message that counts right?:) So here it goes:
Last Saturday, February 1, I had a chance to attend the Saturday service at Feast Bicutan. It’s been a long time since I attended Feast so I just can’t contain my happiness last Saturday! It was the Big Day for the Feast Series, JUMP! I want to share with you what Bro. Velden Lim said on his preaching, “God is by your side reminding you: No matter what happens, don’t stop jumping! Don’t stop hoping!”
Problems will always be there, it is inevitable. There may be times when we want to give up, because we think that we cannot do anything about it or we’ve done everything we can and yet it is still not enough. When this type of thinking and feeling of hopelessness arise, all we need to do is let God take in charge. Indeed, we cannot control everything that is happening in our lives but God can do something about it; we just need to ask and to surrender to Him. And always keep in mind that God is bigger than any of our problems. :)
Also, I want to share the significant points that were tackled last Saturday and this are the following:
1. Be faithful in small things.
2. Face the giant. (Remember what your reasons are, it will be your motivation to keep going and to face the giant: your problems)
3. Face it as you are. (I jotted down some lines from Bro. Velden’s preaching: “Face it as who you are but be at your best”, “God does not call the equipped. He equips.”, and “Do not ask God for a sign. Give God a sign that you really want to face your giant; take the first step.“)
4. Don’t face it alone. (As what I said prior to these four points, ask for God’s help by praying. Cast all your burdens to God. Also, remember how God helped you before in times of need. Bro. Velden gave this example: God saved me from that financial problem when I thought I cannot enroll the money for my tuition came on time.)
I also want to share this video to you guys. I was able to watch this video again last Saturday and it never fails to bring me to tears.
What are your thoughts on this? Comments are appreciated! :)
