“Thoughts As Of The Moment” -Short notes on my life! (050712)-JoCaz Plamenco

Widen your territories. Expand your horizons.Go extreme. Mediocrity is an enemy. Unlimit your limitations. Never settle for anything average. Avoid being complacent.

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”
-2 Timothy 2:15 and 22

I hope I didn’t mess up with my words this time. I hope.

Sadyang may mga bagay lang talaga na hindi natin kayang kontrolin at baguhin and the only thing that we can do is to pray and let God do the thing.

Ako ay isang taong pag-ibig.  Isang taong masiyahin.  Ang aking misyon:  “Spread the love.  Spread laughter and positivity.”  Dalawang bagay lang naman iyon na hindi mahirap gawin.  Baket?  Kase, I have God inside my heart.  That’s it.  Too much for blah-blah-blah.

The truth is, when you pray, there is actually no unanswered or forgotten prayers.  Maybe, I would just call them, “Delayed Answered Prayers.”  So, we just have to keep on praying and also keep waiting.

CHILLAX when being corrected or criticized.  STOP for a while then, THINK.  RESOLVE, that whatever it is, you’ll handle it constructively.

“A wise person stays calm when insulted.”
-Proverbs 12:16

“If you listen to correction, you grow in understanding.”
-Proverbs 15:32

Lord, CHILLAX pa ba tong ginagawa ko?  Always on the brighter side pa ang tingin ko sa buhay?  Or is it already the act of being DEDMA?  If it is, well, it’s not good because it is also the act of being MANHID.  Whahaha!  Ano raw?  Ang gulo, MEN!

It’s good to be PICKY!

I need all the positive energies in this world to keep me strong. Nah!  Not really.

Napakainit ng panahon.  Mabilis tuloy makainit ng ulo.  Ang electric fan, waepek.  Parang hairdryer lang, eh!

Three strategies for steeping higher:

1.  Do what’s hard for you.
2.  Be known for what you do (more than for what you don’t).
3.  Pursue excellence, not excuses.

“Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”
-2 Timothy 2:22

Lord, nadagdagan na naman ang aking mga anak.  Whahaha! Mga disciples…kayo naman, iba kagad nasa utak niyo. Hahaha!

Soul-winning is not enough.  Discipling is a lot better.

My Covenant With The Lord:

1.  I will give my best in everything that I do to glorify Your Holy Name (especially through dancing).

2.  Aalagaan at pagtyatyagaan ko ng mabuti ang aking mga disciples at hindi ko hahayaan na may mawala sa kanila sa presensya ng Lord.

3.  Mas pag-iigihan ko pa ang pagbabahagi ng Iyong Salita sa mga ligaw na kaluluwa lalo na sa mga kabataan.

4.  Makulitan man sila o maasar sa’kin (mga kabataan),  hinding-hindi ako titigil hangga’t hindi ko sila naibabalikmuli o nailalapit sa iyong presensya.

(Baka naman akala niyo basta lang na gumawa ako ng covenant, hindi, ha.  Naiintindihan ko yung ganitong bagay.  And this is a heavy thing.  Blessings to those who follow.  Curse to those who don’t. Want a bible citation?  Wait lang, hanap ako!  Haha!)

What’s wrong with being a PURITAN?  What’s wrong with keeping yourself single and pure; emotionally and physically? What’s wrong with going against the grain?  What’s wrong with going upstream?  What’s wrong with less flirting or no flirting at all?  What’s wrong with keeping your heart guarded from emotional intimacy?  What’s wrong with having no partner?  I’M ONLY 17.  Too young and not yet ready with commitment.  If she’s not the one, I would rather keep myself off of her.  Besides, mahaba pa ang panahon ko para mag soulmate-search.  C’mon!  What’s wrong with our culture. Our culture opens a lot of opportunities for us to get hurt with our wrong mundset about the thing called love, but not LOVE. Got what I mean?  Wait lang, ha.  Magkakaroon din ako ng erotic kind of life.  But, for now, I am really enjoying this AGAPE LOVE?  (So, iyon.  I read this again and parang bitter-bitteran ang drama ko dito ngayon.  Whahaha!  Bitter yata ang Koya Mo?!  Haha!  Pero, hindi naman siguro.  I am just living by what the bible says, “Treat older women with respect and younger women with ALL PURITY.”  Too much for blah-blah-blah!)


(Mag-comment ng masama, wag na magpakita sa’kin.  Whahaha!)

Being a good boy or a good girl is not enough—avoiding troubles, wild parties, wanting a tattoo, watch R-rated movies, or going out on a date. Praised for being such a good boy or a good girl, isn’t that enough? Is the Christian life all about avoiding “bad stuff” or is it about doing “good hard stuff” for God? We’re not just supposed to avoid sinning; we’re supposed to pursue righteousness in a way that others will want to imitate. Be known for what you do, more than for what you don’t.

We should realize that God’s standard is not for us to be the godliest person in a youth group filled with halfhearted Christians, but to “be holy” because He is holy (1 Peter 6:16). God’s standard is not for us to be our teacher’s helper, but to be a “servant of all” (Mark 9:35). God set His standard this high so that we won’t make the mistake of aiming low. He made them unreachable so that we would never have an excuse to stop growing.

Are you called to dance before the Lord? Are you anointed by God to move in His presence? Then, get up and move! Join now! Elyondoulos and Triune Movers Pulilan will help you to develop that heart of a dancer/worshiper inside you!

Good night, everyone! Well, I just can’t sleep yet so I decided to post my devotion for tonight. So here it goes…

Bible Verses:

“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door,I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.” -Revelation 3:20

“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts…” -Hebrews 3:15

A. Message:

God is knocking and continually knocking at the doors of our hearts for the reason that He wants Himself to be a part of our lives. That is so cool. He’s the King of kings, Lord of lords, but then He’s the One who’s so eager to be with us. He is knocking and knocking yet we keep our hearts shut. “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock.” He said.

B. Promise:

In Revelation 3:20, we see Jesus speaking, “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door,I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.” It simply states that God’s promise is, He will dwell with us if we let Him so.

c. Command:

To fulfill God’s promise, the thing that we should do is to open our hearts to our God. When He knocks and calls for us, let us respond and carefully listen to His voice. Let us yield and be obedient to what He is saying and asking us to do.

D. Warning:

So, what happens when we don’t follow God’s commandment? What happens when we don’t open our hearts and respond to His call? Simple! We are just keeping ourselves from experiencing God’s blessings, greatness and mercy. When we reject Him, we reject the Heavens and hug the earthly matters.

E. Application:

The application is simple. Let us just open our hearts to God. Everytime He is calling us and He’s asking us to do something, let us listen to Him, respond to His call, and obey His commandment. When the conviction of the Holy Spirit is at its peak, do not double your mind or do not think twice to obey God.
