Only GOD Could Love You More

Oh Lord, one day soon I will sing this song to my future husband! :-)

Truly, ONLY YOU CAN LOVE HIM MORE!!!!

video

I asked the Lord for someone,
and I always knew
that in God’s time and in God’s way
it would be someone like you.
All my hopes and all my dreams
were suddenly fulfilled
It’s almost unbelievable
our love is in his will.

Only God could love you more,
for He gave me this love I have for you.
What a blessing to know He’s your Lord,
For only God could love you more, than I do.
Only God could love you more,

I’m tempted to be saying ,that we met by chance
But God was there at every turn, In every circumstance
To share this life God gave me
seems such a fearful task,
But every moment we have shared
is more than I could ask


Only God could love you more,
for He gave me this love I have for you.
What a blessing to know He’s your Lord,
For only God could love you more, than I do.

For only God could love you more, than I do.

25 RANDOM THINGS ABOUT ME:THE HEART OF THE ARTIST REVEALED!

I was tagged at Facebook, here's what I wrote:

1. I am a certified SSB! SINGLE SINCE BIRTH! But no regrets co'z I am enjoying life!!!:-)

2. I am a director and I organize BIG EVENTS.But I truly miss acting on STAGE! I dream of being a part of any Broadway Musical! hahaha

3. I am a big fan of Mark Bautista and Sarah Geronimo! They are the ultimate "TOTAL PERFORMERS" for me!

4. I am a Christian. I got to know the Lord when I was 11 years old and my first ministry was the JEEPNEY MINISTRY and VISITATION! Cool!!!

5. I dream of having my own school but do you know what my ultimate dream is? To be a HOMEMAKER!

6. To most people I am very intimidating, dominant and unsubmissive: I challenge you, GET TO KNOW ME and you will know YOU'RE WRONG! :-)

7. I will try any new adventure even if I am scared to death, as long as I have a friend who will do it with me.

8. I am the eldest of 3. Throughout my life, if there is one thing I can be proud of, that is the LOVE and RESPECT I gave to my parents.Believe it or not, I have never fought with them. My goal is to make them HAPPY and COMFORTABLE each day of their lives especially now that they are getting old.

9. A lot of people admire me for being a good Director, Artist, Host, Trainer, Cook, etc. But do you know where I am really good at? TEACHING KIDS!!!!! Oh man, for those who are not aware, TEACHING is my FIRST LOVE!!!

10. I am a SHOPAHOLIC! I get annoyed if I know that I still have money in my wallet.I so hate myself for spending too much UNNECESSARILY! sick!!!!

11. When I was small, I played all kinds of street games! Gosh, PATINTERO, TUMBANG PRESO, MARBLES, CARDS, SHIATO, TAGUAN, LANGIT LUPA IMPIYERNO, AGAW-TAKAW, TAMAAN BOLA, CHINESE GARTER, MORO-MORO, LUKSONG-BAKA, atbp. Gosh, I wish the kids today are able to play those. It was so much FUN!!!!

12. I've watched "27 dresses" and enjoyed it. However, after watching the movie I realized I had more than 27 dresses already yet I am still single! hahaha, still counting.............. (sigh) When will my BEACH WEDDING ever come true? :-)

13. I am targeting to lose weight significantly in the next 2 months.

14. I miss SBC so much - the people, the ministry(ACTS), the worship, the rehearsals etc. I wish I can already be back to the Philippines for good.

15. After the Singles Retreat I am organizing right now, I will start planning for a MISSION's TRIP in Cambodia. I've been there before but I went there to teach PHONETICS and Theater. This time I want to have a 3-5 days MANNA FEEDING PROGRAM! I want to personally cook and feed those precious children of the Lord. Open to anyone who wants to join me! Pray, Pray, Pray!

16. I don't like guys who ADMIRE, LOVE AND ADORE me too much. It's very ANNOYING! A BIG TURN OFF!

17. Even up to now, there are still times when I would just suddenly wake up in the middle of the night and cry. I miss my family and friends in Manila.....................:-(

18. I love to cook. It's one ministry that I have while I am here in Singapore.

19. My voice is just NATURALLY TOO LOUD! I am always mistaken as angry or too demanding and arrogant because of my voice. Yes, it is one of my greatest assets but it pulls me down to embarrassment as well.

20. I hate to admit this but I really think I am madly in love with someone at the moment. The sad thing is, I don't think he is the man the Lord prepared for me so I AM LETTING GO! No text, no e-mails, no phone calls, no dating. I invested too much time and emotions already into something that eventually led to NOTHING.................. Ouch, sakit ha! So TAMA NA!

21. I am so scared of giving birth. Maybe that explains why I am still single.... hehehehe, my tolerance on pain is very low!

22. I wish I learned how to play any musical instrument when I was a kid.

23. I enjoy guys who are confident and can make sensible conversations with me.

24. I can live without CAKES and ICE-CREAMS, but I can't live without PASTA and CHICKEN! Yum Yum!

25. I am a "mother hen" to many. But I wish and pray that the guys that I meet won't just look at me as a "mother hen" but as a woman who can be a perfect wife and a mother to their kids! :-)

G U I D A N C E (Dancing with God)

*received this from a friend today...... it's really nice!
Dancing With God
When I meditated on the word Guidance,
I kept seeing "dance" at the end of the word.
I remember reading that doing God's will is a lot like dancing.
When two people try to lead, nothing feels right.
The movement doesn't flow with the music,
and everything is quite uncomfortable and jerky.
When one person realizes that, and lets the other lead,
both bodies begin to flow with the music.
One gives gentle cues, perhaps with a nudge to the back
or by pressing lightly in one direction or another.
It's as if two become one body, moving beautifully.
The dance takes surrender, willingness,
and attentiveness from one person
and gentle guidance and skill from the other.
My eyes drew back to the word Guidance.
When I saw "G": I thought of God, followed by "u" and "i".
"God, "u" and "i" dance."
God, you, and I dance.
As I lowered my head,
I became willing to trust
that I would get guidance about my life.
Once again, I became willing to let God lead.
My prayer for you today is that God's blessings
and mercies be upon you on this day and everyday.
May you abide in God, as God abides in you.
Dance together with God,
trusting God to lead
and to guide you through each season of your life.

Love Hurts

How come LOVE can cause so much joy and at the same time so much pain?

How come a guy says I LOVE YOU yet doesn't really seem to know what it means?

And how come a girl like me even believes that there is HOPE with someone like him?

STUPID LOVE, STUPID ME!
(Can I just cry Lord? why do I fall on the same trap over and over again?)

Lover of my Heart

"I want to walk with you everyday of my life
to talk with you in the good and the strife
you're my friend you're my father, for all time
Nothing can keep us apart, you're the lover of my heart"
Today is a time of rest and relaxation. I talked to Him, went jogging and biking with Him. Sang praises to His name and read about Him. Oh man, what an awesome God I have!
"The LORD is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise him, my father's God, and I will exalt him."

One Day at a Time

I'm back to work!
Yes, after 2 weeks of vacation in Manila I am now officially back to work again. However, before I came back to Singapore, I told the Lord to prepare my heart, my mind and my body physically, for what is about to come.You see, whenever I would handle big events, the enemy is ALWAYS on the attack, not just to me but to all of those who are with me in the frontline.He strikes in many areas of my life and I tell you, if I am not prepared, I should have surrendered and just totally given up long ago. I know in my heart that the victory is already mine because of Jesus, but I am not a hypocrite to say that things are easy. Most of the time, Christians commit mistakes when we underestimate the power of the enemy.I assure you, he is not the type who makes things easy! Like right now, the challenges that I am going through are those that will make any normal human being anxious and worried. At work things are sooooooo crazy, employees are being terminated each day. It's been an emotional and mental torture for most of us, coming to work thinking "I might be next". But then again, if it happens, then it happens!
For years, I entrusted my entire career to Him and He has shown Himself faithful all throughout. Who am I to even doubt that His plans are not always for the better? In fact, each time I would move to a new job, it gets better and better!:-) God is good!
Psalm 138:7
"Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes, with your right hand you save me."
Other than all the stresses at work, I am also getting slowly concerned about my health. I have been having asthma attacks here in SG and somehow I feel like my body is getting weak. This morning when I woke up I discovered a painful lump on the right side of my stomach and my dysmenorrhea was just so severe I coudn't even get up.Praise God though because later this afternoon the lump just suddenly dissappeared. :-) God is good.
As I go through this challenging time, the Lord brought me to the story of Hagar. She is an Egyptian slave and Sarah's bitter rival. (Gen.16; 21:8-21) Most people know her as the "concubine and a surrogate mother," to bear Abraham's heir. But you know what? there is actually so much more to learn from this woman than we thought.She was mistreated for many years which led her to the wilderness twice. The first was the time she discovered her pregnancy and began lording it over her mistress - not a very smart move I would say for a young woman bearing a child. The second was by force rather than by choice.In a crescendo of bitterness, Sarah had expelled her and her son Ishmael from their home.Can you just imagine how desperate her situations were on those two scenarios? Her bondage, her bitterness, her anxiety about the future? This is what really amazes me about Hagar - on those times when she felt like giving up, desperate and no one one to hold on to, SHE LISTENED TO GOD AND DEPENDED ON HIM!!! And whenener the Lord tells her to do something, she would do it without second thoughts. She wouldn't argue but just turned right around and retraced her steps in obedience. God's word penetrated the wilderness of her heart like a fresh spring nourishing a desert oasis. From the time she responded to the voice in the desert, she began to trust that GOD IS ALWAYS NEAR and that GOD SEES HER! whoa, what a comfort!
As the retreat comes, I pray that God will continue to give me an EXPECTANT HEART. I have always believe that retreats are good avenues for lives to change and for spirit renewal. And I am confident that God is going to do something great in the midst of those who will participate to this event.
From this day onwards, inspite of all uncertainties, I will take things ONE DAY AT A TIME for I know that GOD IS IN CONTROL! And in His arms I am safe! :-)
Psalm 4:8
"I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety."
Psalm 37:23-24
"The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way."
"Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand."
