Abiding in the Presence of God

Psalm 91:1-16

91 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”

Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler[a]
And from the perilous pestilence.
He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.

Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
12 In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”

Trust In The Lord With All You Heart!

Proverbs 3,5-6

For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous:
but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will direct your paths.

Day 9 – A talent of yours

Nah! When I first read the title of this post, it made me a little uncomfortable, I didn’t want to appear egotistical and I was also struggling to think so something I am talented at. This one is a tough one sick.  In general I don’t feel particularly talented at anything.  A friend of mine often calls herself a “jack of all trades, master of none.”  I kind of feel the same.  I have many hobbies, and many things I enjoy doing, but don’t really feel I’ve mastered any of them. I’m decent at most things I try, but it takes a lot of discipline to really cultivate a talent.

When I was younger winking ,  I remember people telling me I was talented in certain areas, but I can’t come up with ANYTHING.  So, I’ll share with you the things that people compliment me most about. People say that I am pretty talented when it comes to writing songs and poems, I am awesome at making speeches, hahaha ansabeh? AWESOME silly that is really funny.

But I see myself as an understanding person and can easily relate to others, Hmmm teka talent ba yon? hehehe dibale padayon  cheer😉 Hmm…  I’m a realist about things, I don’t expect grand things to happen left and right, I don’t expect life to be anything as it’s portrayed in the entertainment world. This makes all the little good things in life seem like pleasant surprises; I’m constantly being made happy by the simplest of things. I can also play basketball, I was athletic kunuhay back then.  don't tell anyone

I also like to sing. When I was younger, I used to sing in church and won several awards for the singing contest. Oh dabah?  applause Nakadaug ko kunuhay, pakapalan lang ng fez ang puhunan. Hehehe #Makatawa ko really! That experienced made me sick! Hahaha. silly

Yay! yes! Singing!!! P-A-G-K-A-N-T-A!  Siguro yon lang yong talent na alam kong magaling ako ngunit hindi ako kahanay sa mga birit queens sa mundo. 😉

I will always remember what my Mama, Lolo and Lola told me.

Everyone  studying it down.

God don’t like arrogant people.

-Don’t let success think your better than others.

-Remember to go back to your community and give, and teach others they too can set and achieve goals.

-Remember be nice to the people you pass on your way up, because you might need them on your way down.

-Be humble all the time.

– And most importantly give praises to God for what you have.

To end this story,  ” It is ok to accept the praises of people but don’t let your head get too big.  Don’t let your head get too big.”

thumbs up
