Her existence..

Her existence …

To be a mother is a gift and a blessing.  My mother is one of a kind which God given to us. Reminisce my childhood, I still remember how our life suffering in hardship.  I saw my parent’s who works too hard for our daily needs and for our education.  I witnessed the hardship of my parent, especially my mom.  

My mom, is the oldest daughter of our late grandfather. According to her, at her younger age, they have a luxury life, but when our grandmother died, their life begun to change.  His father, remarry again,  unfortunately, her step-mom abused her which caused her to stopped her study and she decided to marry in her early stage.

She shared with us the challenges, trials, hardships and failures in every roads she'd been through. She become more stronger, a fighter and a survivor in her different battle in life.  

When she had her own family, she taught us  to know the good things and understand the dark  side of this world.  I remember how she TRUSTED us, when we are growing up.  She nurtured us by her unconditional love and affection, despite of her busiest time by providing our daily needs.

And when the time we got married, she continue to pray  for us,  I know sometimes in her life  she suffered when we are in trouble. Her loving heart reminds me how she protects and comfort her children.  Her hugged gives us peace and comfort.  Presently my mom,  choose to serves us by cooking and do some household chores despite of her old age.  

We are so much bless because now, we her children witnessing her life as she is enjoying serving God. I thank God for giving her the opportunity to experience her life by honoring God and serving His people.

To you mang, I honor you, thank you so much for trusting us, for all the sacrifices, for your love, for your prayerss and for your great time serving our God in heaven.  I love you mamang!! We love you you!

1 Timothy 5:4But if a widow has children or grandchildren, they must first learn to show godliness to their own family and repay their parents, for this is pleasing in the sight of God.

Dear God, thank you so much for the gift of life, you choose us to love .  Thank you for the great opportunity that you gave for our mother, after the tribulation of her life, at her 72 years on earth, you let her to enjoy your love, by giving her peace, joy, love and the wisdom to know you and bless her heart by giving her the passion to serve you and your people.  I pray dear Lord Jesus, to add her life, and  may  she enjoy the gift of the Holy Spirit.  I declare healing in any deceases she has, freedom and forgiveness in her heart.  Lord, I pray to crowning her by your tenderkindess love, mercy and favor. In Jesus name.  Amen.

I am not a Teacher..

Teaching is not my profession, I actually dislike to teach children because I know how difficult to discipline kids with different characteristic as they grew up with different culture.  Besides, I never dreamed to be a teacher, and I did not see myself to teach in the future.

But if God will use you, whatever difficult things made you, God shall give you the wisdom to learn, to teach and to understand the lesson that you shall impart to the children in front of you.

And because of my desire to serve and to share my hidden talent, I started to observe every Sunday in ENC-victory kids, General Santos City.  I have given also the opportunity to volunteer in the said congregation, being part of this ministry. They mentoring us by attending the training and giving us some christian reading materials, challenging us to makes some crafts by our own ideas which helped me to enhance my creativeness in anyways.  Likewise, they encourage us that leading and serving is one of the gift that we need to intensify in any ministry where we be called.

My first day of handling the pre-schooler, was a challenging one, because most of our kids speak  English with correct pronunciation and grammar …ha!ha!ha!ha…but to my surprised I made it, maybe because of the wisdom that I asked from our Heavenly Father. He gave me the strength to do my part, and I believe that I can only do it, because of His presence through the Holy spirit who work with me. This is how God used my existence which I valued so much.  Why? Because I did not study teaching, I was not a teacher graduate, I am only a mediocre who dreamed to live with purpose.

In this endeavor I bestowed, It is my opportunity to honor the kids volunteer ministry of ENC, General Santos City for believing on me, and for the great chance they gave to every individual who have the desire to be part in any ministry they called to be.

Three years of doing my teaching skills (I call it my hidden skill),, it helps me more to understand the value of the gospel in my daily life.  I did not only learn from the lesson I shared with the kids, I also learned to apply every lesson in any situation of my life.  That is why, teaching the gospel with the children  is also like God teaches you for transformation.

Psalm 78:2-4 for I will speak to you in a parable.   I will teach you hidden lessons from our past- stories we have heard and known, stories our ancestors handed down to us.  

We will not hide these truths from our children; we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord, about his power and his mighty wonders. (from christian quotes)
