World Suicide Prevention Day

It’s been over a year since this comment has attested me how powerful blogging is. This has reminded me of using what I have to reach people and bring hope. 

Today, September 10, 2014, marks the World Suicide Prevention Day which started in 2013 through the initiative of International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) and World Health Organization (WHO). According to WHO, About 3000 people on average commit suicide daily and nearly one million people die by suicide each year. Could you imagine that huge statistics of people committing and dying of suicide?

So what can we do? And what can you do? 

Let’s bring HOPE to these suicidal people and to others! 

There may be problems, hurdles, and challenges in life but that should never be the reason to end a precious life. Probably, you have a friend, classmate, or family related to you closely committing to do so. What you can do?

Be the light! Don’t get tired to remind those people that life is not really smooth sailing. That life is tough so we’ve got to face it. That there are undesirable circumstances that we need to overcome.

We have to PREVENT suicide. Prevention is always better than cure. And I believe that suicide should never happen and it does not have to happen. Ending your life is not the answer to everything that’s confusing you to think normally. Ask help and there are a lot of people willing to help you. Don’t ever think that no one is bothering or caring you because there are a lot of them willing to save you. 

If you’re about to commit suicide now, throw away that idea already. Your life is so precious and there are lot of opportunities in store for you. You may feel unloved, unwanted or hated but believe me there is someone up there who really loves you so much. His love for you is insurmountable and He’s with you in your journey.

And we can only find HOPE in Him.

Happy to Serve

Perhaps some people would not understand what you are doing. They think it’s insane to put other people first than yourself. But they just don’t know what joy it brings to serve.

The moment you embrace and understand what service truly means, you begin to love and enjoy helping other people.

You may be spending the rest of your life serving other people and it seems like no one appreciating it. You have done everything to do well, yet other people are still against you. What you think the right way to do, seems like wrong with others. You know that you’re doing your part, but some people think you’re just doing it to gain something.

But take heart. DON’T MIND THEM. Do not mind what people would tell to you. Do not mind if the circumstances work against you. Do not mind if others are just laughing at your cause or if they’re not buying on your vision. Do not hold on their mockery.

Just continue what you have started. For if it is for the good of other people, there will always be a huge comeback in store for you. Whatever you have done for the sake of the others, it will also happen to you. Maybe the time is not yet the right time to happen, but surely it will happen on right moment and season of your life.

Your effort and labor will not be in vain. Don’t stop doing the good cause just because others are not with you. Because you may not believe it, but whatever you are doing will impact the world. It will take part on the transformation of the world. You will be an influence and you will be part of the history.

You may not be seeing it for the meantime but you have to see it and prepare yourself for it will surely happen.

So always put a smile because there is always joy in serving. Even if it is physically demanding, even if it gives you sleepless nights, and even if it demands your time. The joy in serving will always remain the same; it will always be priceless.

Your life will only be worthwhile when you come to understand and embrace the heart in serving other people.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

Once and for all, I would like to commend you. I salute your heart for the vision and your utmost love for the lost and the nation.

It is never an easy job. But it’s the most fulfilling job. It takes your heart and entirety of yours. Changing lives, loving the unlovable, and raising up leaders to transform this nation – how could someone underestimate your job description?

Most often than not, you love investing time, effort, money, and everything what you’ve got. Whether you are students or working, you love putting other people first.

Just don’t give up, don’t neglect your duty. God is seeing you. He will never let His righteous man fall. We have still lot of things to do, let’s GO BEYOND!

Value what you have now. No matter how small or big it is. Whether you’re starting or been for years now, God will give what you desire in the proper time. The time when you’re ready enough to handle the blessings.

In times you think of giving up, think of the first time you have experienced the love of the Lord. Think of your past victories and His promises on your life. He will do as He promise, just wait patiently.

Lose yourself for the greater cause and you will not just be successful but you will be significant, adding value to other people.

Thank you for allowing yourself to do so. The credits all go to our Lord who continues to change, correct, and remind us to do and embrace our calling.

I am also a cell leader, leading people back to Christ and raising up leaders whom the multitudes will follow. I am not ashamed of my calling. I am proud and will always be grateful that God qualified me and used me to do extraordinary things. I am privilege to be called.

To all the Cell Leaders, let’s die on the vision and embraced this calling. Go beyond what you can do. If you want to reach that picture of your future, leave your comfort zone.

What can I give the Lord for all that he has done for me? – Psalm 116:12

Encouraging your Discouraged Friend

There would be time that someone would call you, ask for your help and encouragement. He/she would entail every detail to you and he/she just can’t hold the heaviness of his/her heart and cry it out. And you don’t have any idea how to ease that pain. Only being emphatic is the  closest way to atleast carry off the burden. All you could do is to listen to his/her story and tap his/her back and share an undying encouragement.

It’s not easy to see someone in trouble especially if he/she is close to your heart. But be with him/her in his/her journey. Don’t leave him/her in such a time he/she needs someone like you who’ll remind him/her of what he/she had gone through over the past years.
 
If you have a friend who needs you now, don’t give up on him/her. Help him/her to rise up above on his/her situation and bring out the best in him/her in his/her darkest moment.

You don’t need to provide everything for him/her, sometimes your presence is more than enough.

While You’re Still Young

This generation needs someome like you. Do your best. Strive for better life than yesterday. Come out from your comfort zone, pull out your guts and show the world what you’ve got. Don’t just get boxed on who you are now cause you can do more than that… if you just believe in yourself. Believe in your capabilites cause I believe in you. Even some try to intimidate and stop you, keep on pursuing. Don’t mind the thorns, just continue to step the way to your hard-earned sucess.

While you’re still young, dream as gigantic as you can. Keep that spirit for you will achieve it; believe on it. Everything is possible if you put you’re heart into it. Fight for your dreams. Don’t allow anyone to stop you from reaching it. Even if its as high as the stars, it will happen if you put an action into it. Dont just wait for it to happen; act about it. Lazy people will never taste and see the goodness of their dreams. Don’t be one of them. Always remember that success is not an overnight process; it’s a slowly stream combination  of perseverance, hardwork, and positive outlook in life. 

While you’re still young, discover your passion. Don’t fool yourself that you don’t have. Find what you love doing, what makes you smile and fulfilled when you do it. You possessed skills and talents and you should not forget to hone it. Keep practicing and harbor your diverse passion for it will lead you to the path that you’re eyeing for.

While you’re still young, make your life productive. Don’t buy into living a life of mundane amd routinary activities. You can do a lot of things: travel, hangout, exercise, eat, write, trek etc. So dont allow yourself to just sit down and watch the world as it revolves and welcomes tomorrow. Contribute to the betterment of the world; be part of the change. Excel in your studies. Don’t just be an average student. Strive for continous learning.

There is no time when time is past. It’s difficult to just regret on the end cause you can’t turn back time. Remember that your life is very precious so don’t waste it regretting for something or trying to be someone else. You are unique; there’s no one like you in this world. The shape of your face, your eyes, ears, nose, will always be different from other. You are unique from the inside and out. No one can have the same smile and laugh as yours even the way you spill out words from your mouth, the way you stand on different platforms and present yourself.

Whatever problems you have now, bear in mind that you’re not just young but you’re a problem solver. You are the solution. Don’t give up on trials, face it boldly. Keep that persevering hope in your heart that everything will come to pass.

Survive the labyrinth of life. Cause at the end, you’ll find yourself grateful for not giving up, for taking the risk, and for leaving your fears behind.

While you’re still young, make your life distinctive for you’ll never know who you are inspiring. It may be the person beside you, or someone close to you. Keep moving forward and keep your dreams alive.

Being young will come for once so make the most out of it.

L-O-V-E

 

 

What keeps you going?

And I have to agree with the song, it’s Love. L-O-V-E; Love alone is worth the fight!

Life will always throw something on you. It could pull you down, break you or tear you. But with all the undesirable situations, Love will keep you going.

Perfect love casts out fear, (1 John 4:18)

If you have understand that kind of love, it will always manifest and reflect on you.

18 years and still counting, I have been through a lot. But those situations have never shaken my foundation and my beliefs. I know the why and I know that despite of everything there’s Someone willing to love me unconditionally. That no matter what, He’s there for me.

Everything is possible because of love.

So don’t be conceited. Share the love that you have; Love one another (John 13:34-35). Don’t shun away the greatness of love

And now these three remain: FAITH, HOPE and LOVE. But the greatest of these is LOVE. – 1 Corinthians 13:13

Lost and Found

Looking. Searching. Longing. 

I’m thirsty and hungry yet euphoric with how things drive around me. But there was an empty space on my heart that desires for more. Still, I kept on going, trying to overlook the yearning of my heart. I tried to delude myself thinking that everything’s going to be okay. But I heard a thumping whisper, trying to shame me – telling me that I’m a stranger on my accustomed dwelling, stranger of my own world. It’s difficult to buy that idea but there was a part me agreeing that there’s something wrong which I attempted to ignore. 

But that whisper kept on haunting me.

Is that possible to be lost/ to be a stranger on your own track? I asked myself. 

I kept on pondering. How can it be? I’m clueless. Perhaps I’m lost with no clear path to journey ahead. With all those questions, I just continued my way, paying no attention with everything. 

Yet, until one day, while contemplating over things, a woman in her late teen years, tapped me. “Can you give me a minute?” she requested. I was uncertain if I would accept her request but I just said yes. 

“Do you read love letters? She asked. I just nodded. “How about love letters from God?” she smiled. I gave her a quizzical look. What’s with the love letter from God? I asked myself. 

Until she told me about life’s purpose. She shared a verse written on the bible. I can hardly forget about it. It was written on Romans 6:23. At first, I thought she was another saint trying to impose her beliefs, insisting that she’s good and I’m bad – that my soul will be burned and found on hell. But everything that’s been playing on my mind was all a mistaken thought. 

I kept on listening on her. Little by little, pieces by pieces, I finally understand all my queries. There’s just a single solution about my petty issues, if I’ll just be bold about it – Accept Him. 

I never thought that all the questions I’ve been pondering will just be answered by a firm and bold decision – Accepting Christ 

I may once be a completely stranger on my accustomed dwelling, on my own world, but now I am found. I have been lost, but now I am found.

I found all I need in Him that I would never ever try to exchange any treasure of this world. Before I’m happy even I’m broke inside, but now I’m completely free. No longer stranger. No longer lost.
