In Saying Yes to the Lord

i posted months ago about always saying Yes to the Lord. i had said yes to the Lord again to serve in the St. Scho LSS last weekend and also as a worship leader for the BLD Singles Night last monday even if i think i am unworthy to do those. last saturday, i woke up very early coz i am really really nervous. but the weekend did just great. i had a very responsive lambs and they are all blessings. and last monday, i reported for work only in the afternoon but my officemates asked me if i'm okay coz i am unusually quiet. honestly i didn't notice that i was quiet. i was just really nervous. i even texted my BLD friends. and Praise God! the worship had been i guess a blessing to a lot of people. even if i had prepared a prayer earlier, when i started to pray infront, words just came out of my mind. it is really true that i should not worry coz the Holy Spirit will supply us with the words. the BLD Youth Ministry was totally amazing. at first, we thought it's the Youth prayer meeting coz there had been more Youth than the Singles. thank you Youth. love ko talaga kayo.

as i was really worried last monday, tita gene texted me that i would be blessed since i was continually using my God-given talents to serve Him. honestly, i'm not waiting for any blessings to come that's why i'm serving Him. i just wanted to be obedient to God. i told you, that's what i learned from the Youth Ministry, to be obedient to God. anyway, i was not expecting any blessing and most of all not so soon. then yesterday, somebody texted me asking me something. sobrang galing lang! coz i was totally not expecting it. everything is not sure but it's a start. and i'm just thankful for the opporunity/chance given to me even if it's not certain yet. just pray for me please that God will grant it to me if He wills it. actually, i'm hoping for Him to will it. but if not, i hope i can accept it and that i would be patient enough to wait for that something better that is in store for me :)

**i've added a daily prayer portion at my sidebar. it's the prayer i send out to my friends every morning. i hope it would be able to bless you as well.**

it's good that we acknowlege the power of prayers. God is really good! He answers our prayers in His own time. it may take a while, but when He does answer, you'd realize it's the perfect time.

keep on praying, tin-tin! :)

Why pray? If you have unanswered prayers, the answer is here -- Luke 18: 1-8

nakaka-tuwa tlg ang mga ganitong tao. hindi naman kasi talaga ako relihiyosong tao... hindi din ako pala-sali/gawa ng stuffs for the church and the like. but i have FAITH. and i think that's all that matters. the other things are just parang 'accessories'... magaganda xa, but i dont think na yun yun pinaka-essential. well at least, that's what i think.... mabait naman ako sa kapwa at tumutulong din kung minsan...

kaya saludo tlg ako sa mga taong ganito! mabuhay ka! pagpalain ka ng Diyos! :)

God is always there for us and will be there to guide us in our everyday life, at the same time, we must do our best, because God helps those who help themselves. So just keep on praying, never lose hope. God speed!

obidience is better than sacrifice. no matter what our situation when we truly worship the Lord wholeheartedly He is pleased to us. glad to hear that the Lord is using you to bless other people. keep it up.

I think you've been able to prove to yourself now that You have the power inside of you, your love of God just helps you find it and have faith in your own confidence!

Congratulations on your success and I hope your future plans go just as well :D

I used to be active on those things but it suddenly stopped. I became non-religious but I still believe in God though or some higher power.

tin-tin said...

tani: thanks tani. i just hope i'll be patient to wait for His perfecct time. i'll check the verse later at home :)

ralph: true! as long as you have faith and you do good stuff, and you pray. okay na yun. it's how you live your life naman eh. kaysa naman kasali ka sa mga grupo, sabay pag di mo sila kasama iba ugali mo. nonsense yun diba? nasasayo lang tlga kung pano mo isabuhay si God sa buhay mo diba? :)

tin-tin said...

jv: yes, it's on ourselves also. we shoould depend on God, but we should also take responsibility on something :)

sidney: yup.. but it's how we live our life also :)

tin-tin said...

tommy: obedience.. because obedience itself is already a sacrifice somehow :)

mei: saya magserve noh? sobrang katuwa nga si God. generous in blessing us :)

tin-tin said...

charles: it's okay to be non-religious. the important thing is you believe in God and talk to Him. and serving your neighbors :)

Lazarus said...

Reminds me of the hymn “Trust and obey”. That special relationship with Jesus prods us to serve Him obediently. Fear not for He will take care of the rest.

we always get what we deserve - from other people, and most especially from God.

jase said...

I love your prayer... patience, gentleness, compassion! Three things I always aspire for.

When you are at peace with God and with yourself, then you are truly happy!

Hi Tin-tin! That inspirational message on your sidebar keeps me up and motivates me everyday whenever I visit your site! Thanks for coming up with that inspirational idea.=D

Rey said...

I don't really equate my faith to being religious. I guess we have a lot of ways to serve God and yours is one that is laudible.
Continue being the good person that you are.

kolletzki: thank you. everything for the Lord :)

That is true. For me religion is not that important but the thing is just to be good, kind and helpful to others.
