Daughters of Issachar

Image
Daughters of Issachar  And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.  (Hebrews 11:6)

Who is Issachar? 
Issachar is the 9th son of Jacob and 5th son of Leah who is Jacob's first wife.

The name Issachar means "There is a Reward."
Thank you Father for allowing me to be a part of something significant such as shaping the life of these beautiful ladies. I pray that you will always fill them with your overflowing love, joy, peace which comes from an intimacy and personal relationship with you. May you always allow them to remember you and your love, especially in times that they do not feel loved. in Jesus name, AmenThey understood the times, with knowledge of what Israel should do, and all their kinsmen were at their command. (1 Chronicles 12:32)Throughout the history of ancient Israel, the tribe of Issachar is portrayed as a family that was destined to flourish both …

Reverb  Praise and Worship Night  CCF Eastwood Thank you Lord for a night of surprises after surprises after surprises from you....

All things work for our good
Though sometimes we don't see how they could
Struggles that break our hearts in two
Sometimes blind us to the truth

Father you know what's best for us
Your ways are not our own
You are too wise to be mistaken
too good to be unkind

So when I don't understand
When I don't see your plan
When I can't trace your hand
Cause me to Trust your heart

You see the master plan
And you hold our future in your hand
I would not live as those who have no hope
All my hope is found in you

I see the present clearly
But you see the first and the last
And like a tapestry
You're weaving me to someday be just like you
God is too wise to be mistaken
God is too good to be unkind
So when you don't understand
When you don't see His plan
When you can't trace His hand
Trust His heart You alone are faithful an…

Galatians

Thank you so much Teacher Alex for teaching us patiently with dedication. 
Thank you so much for sharing to us your time and strength to teach us the Word of God. Thank you also for sharing your own life as you listened to our own stories. You are more than a teacher. Thank you for having heart and compassion. 
Praying that God will bless you as you bless more people.
For my part, I am going to boast about nothing but the Cross of our Master, Jesus Christ. Because of that Cross, I have been crucified in relation to the world, set free from the stifling atmosphere of pleasing others and fitting into the little patterns that they dictate.  Can’t you see the central issue in all this? It is not what you and I do. It is what God is doing, and He is creating something totally new, a free life!  All who walk by this standard are the true Israel of God—his chosen people. Peace and mercy on them! - Galatians 6:14-16 MSG

Follow Jesus Christ

Image
Jesus said:
"Come,
Follow me....
And I will make you fishers of men."



Our primary duty is to follow Jesus.
We become fishers of men, not by fishing for men, but by following Jesus.

We follow Him by obeying His instructions.

His first command to us is to COME.

It is in coming into His presence that we become fishers of men.

Jesus didn't command us to fish for men. Simply put, it is by coming to Him and following Him that we start a life transformation.

Servant Leadership

Image
My goal in life is to learn how to be a servant. And once I master that - my next goal is to help other believers to become servants...It's the small things that we should be concerned with, not the big things. The big things are usually out of our control anyway. But the small things are the things that set the course of our lives. - The Outward Focused Life by Dave Workman I would love to be used by God in all of my ways and days. Kindly pray for me that I will have a tender heart to submit to God's teachings and plans and to always have a heart after God's own heart. May I always love God with all my heart, mind, soul and strength.

May my eyes be always be fixed on Jesus, that I may always see His wonderful face that the things of this world will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.

May I become less and less, so that Jesus Christ will be greater.


He must increase, but I must decrease - John 3:30.

God is Faithful

God is faithful. His faithfulness is not a past nor a future tense. He is always faithful...

Faithfulness is his character.
He is faithful! :)

Haayyyy...Super nakakainlove si God noh? :))

Outburn Burnout

Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we’d better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins.  FOCUS on Jesus Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls - Hebrews 12: 1-3 Jesus knew: where He had come from,
Where he was going,
And why he is here.

When we know that,
We are free to be anything.
We can take even the lowliest job without concern.
I know that I had no hope of saving myself from myself. But I can …

No compromise

Image
No CompromiseIf you would hire someone in your company, I believe you would want someone who is competent.
Do not give to the Lord your God a bull or a sheep which is not perfect. For that is a hated thing to the Lord your God - Deuteronomy 17.When it comes to serving the Lord, there is nothing more important than offering only the best. 
He deserves nothing less.This is the most important job in the world.He is holy. Ministry is an overflow of our Intimacy with Him.In our ministries, it is only good that we serve because of our love and gratitude to Him. Because if our desire is other than that, we are not giving Him what He wants.
What he wants from us is our devotion and relationship and not any work or offerings.
My food is to do the will of the one who sent me. (John 4:34)O God, You know how foolish I am. My sins are not hidden from You. (Psalm 68)Being in a ministry for God, our aim is to be blameless in both our public and private life. Accountability is a must.

May those who wait f…

Ungodly

Image
Now listen, Why do you say, “Today, at the latest, tomorrow, we’re off to such and such a city for the year. We are going to start a business and make a lot of money.” You are not even sure what will happen tomorrow. What is your chance? You are just a mist that appears for a short time and then vanishes - James 4:13-15. What is ungodliness Ungodliness is defined as living one's daily life with little or no consideration of God or of God's will or of God's reputation or of one's dependence on God. Ungodly How ungodly are you?
Train yourself for godliness - I Timothy 4:7. How much of your daily life do you live with love for God?
Whether we eat or drink, or whatever we do, we should do all to the glory of God - I Corinthians 10:31. How much of your activities go through with any reverence to God? Whatever we do, we should work well, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that we will receive from God the inheritance as our reward. We are serving the Lord Christ - 1 C…

Peace that comes from God

Image
True Peace comes only from Him.

The peace that is despite any circumstances...

Super sarap magrelax always with Him...

The best spa experience will always be in His presence!

Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness - Matthew 6:33

And everything else that we need in life would be added unto us...

Until we surrender everything to Jesus, we refuse God's design for our life.
Let's adjust our life to Him and His purposes.

He is a good God... A Holy God... What's keeping you from Believing He wants what is best for you?

Ignite the Light

Image
Ignite the LightGrace and Peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of God and Father, to whom be the glory Forever and Ever amen. Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven - Matthew 5:1.

Have you ever seen a light bulb ignited without any electric source or battery?
Let us all focus on the light and let Jesus reveal the light through us.  Let us turn our eyes upon Jesus and humbly trust Him to reveal the light through us.  We are merely stewards as we let Jesus work through us. Let us focus on following Jesus wherever He leads.
No one can be a light of the world in itself. We can only become light through our relationship with Him - 2 Corinthians 4:6. God speaks the light of Jesus into our hearts, and his light shines so powerfully through us that we are like stars in the universe that point the whole human race towar…

Bible Study

Image
These things happened to them as examples for us. They were written down to warn us who live at the end of the age. ( Corinthians 10:11)With all the entertainments available, social medias, new activities, it is inevitably easy to forget the lessons of the past or just ignore them. However, Paul encourages us to learn the lessons of the past so that we do not have to repeat their errors. 

The lessons that the Israelites about our God would not only help us to avoid the mistakes of the Israelites but also to know why we are doing it.

No God is like the God that our Soul desires - the Great Creator, Lord of Lords, and King of Kings who Loves us with all His grandeur!

In the same way that to have a relationship you have to know more about the other person, we remember by studying the Bible regularly. It is in studying the bIble that we learn how the Lover of our Souls wants us to live.

Heart and Mind

Image
Everything is pure to those whose hearts are pure. But nothing is pure to those who are corrupt and unbelieving, because their minds and consciences are corrupted - Titus 1:15. There are people who always see good all around them, while there are those who see nothing but evil.

What is the difference?

Souls are the filters through which people perceive goodness or evil.

Those who have Christ in control of their lives, or are pure, learn to see goodness and purity even in this evil world.

Corrupt and unbelieving people find evil in everything because their evil minds and hearts color even the good they see and hear.

Whatever you choose to fill your mind will affect the way you think and act.

Turn your thoughts to God and His word to discover more and more goodness, even in this evil world.
Fix your thoughts on what is true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise - Philippians 4:8. A mind filled with good has little roo…

Leadership Tips

What Kind of Leader are you?The Leaders in the Old Testaments were Kings.
Two Interesting Kings from that time were King Saul and King David.

Tips from Great LeadersAttitude

Leadership is influence. 
People catch our attitudes just like they catch our colds—by getting close to us.
Is your attitude worth catching?
(John Maxwell, Developing the Leader Within You)

The Extra Plus in Leadership is ATTITUDE. 
A leader's attitude determines the attitude of his followers.
Humility is the foundation of every good attitu…

The Price Tag of Leadership

The Price Tag of Leadership SELF-DISCIPLINE
In reading the lives of great men, I found that the first victory they won over was themselves.

Self-discipline with all of them came first.

The Greek word for self-control comes from a root word meaning “to grip” or “take hold of.”

This word describes people who are willing to get a grip on their lives and take control of areas that will bring them success or failure.

Aristotle used this same word to describe “the ability to test desire by reason…to be resolute and ever in readiness to end natural vent and pain.”

People who are not controlled have strong desires which try to seduce them from the way of reason; but to succeed they must keep those desires under control.

Discipline in the beginning of life is the choice of achieving what you really want by doing things you don’t really want to do.

After successfully doing this for some time, discipline becomes the choice of achieving what you really want by doing things you now want to do!

I truly bel…

Servant Heart

Image
I choose to sacrifice my life to God.
I have no life to begin with, other than the life that I found in Him.
I would still choose to do things for Him, because there is nothing else that I can do without Him. Everything that I have - is from Him.
I choose to commit each day of my life for Him.

What can I afford that He has not given?
What do I have that is not already His?
All I possess is this life that I am living, and that is what I wish to give to God.
I want to lay it all for Him and His glory.

Counterfeit Gods
You might say: I don’t believe in God, 
But the bible says not possible,
Everyone has a God, whether or not it’s the God of the gospel. You might not believe in God, but everyone has that one thing that’s king, Even the dictionary defines God as what “whatever we make supreme” It’s a theme, a thread, it’s inside of all human beings,
The fact we all worship, and no it’s not just about singing. I know some of you already like
 “Jeff I don’t worship, I put that on the shelf,” But I say technically we all do, we just worship ourselves.
We all worship something, and to an object we’re all liable,

Ladies, to some your boyfriend is your God, and Cosmo is your bible.
Yet, we mock and we laugh at the Israelites Golden Calf, But we do the same right back; it just looks different than that. So question,
What’s on your throne? What do you chase so you don’t feel alone?
So what defines you, what do you give ultimate worth?
And what if taken from you would bring ultimate hurt? Now see,
that is your Go…
