Light Network Bloggers Meet-up

Yey! At last, I got to attend a couple of bloggers meet-up! Yesss.... "blogger"! Haha! After some years after I wrote my first blog post until many visited my page from time to time until this week, I can finally say that I'm really glad I decided to write my curly thoughts. And I really want to give all the credit to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who is still walking with me in this journey. I'm blessed to meet awesome bloggers in person! We had so little time to share about ourselves and our blogs yet we had fun, got inspired and felt "connected".


And so this is the Part 1 of my story, all glory to God!


On September 10, 2014 I met with Light Network staffs Ms Ella and Sir Next, Tommy Walker's Live in Manila 2014 organizer Sir Bong, and my new found blogger friends Aira of amaeguerrero@wordpress and Joseph of transformedtobetransformer@tumblr. According to the email, we're invited to join an intimate gathering of Christian volunteer bloggers in Ortigas and when I arrived at the coffee shop, we're only few in numbers yet when the intentions, visions and personal testimonies were told... just amazing!

from L-R: Bro. Next, Bro. Joseph, Sis. Aira, Me, Sis. Ella, Bro. Bong


I remember Aira, she was very young when she started blogging and through her written journey of faith, a reader who was on planning to commit suicide had a change of heart. And Joseph, he is very eager to reach out more young people to Christ and he's preparing a talk for some students on learning how to blog. Because of their testimonies, I got really encouraged, motivated and blessed to be there that night. Plus the possible activities the bloggers might support are very exciting! So if you are a true witness of Christ and with a heart on serving the Lord, join the Light Network Bloggers' Group and share your gift on writing and blogging. Altogether let's promote Jesus Christ in world wide web. Email them at inquiry@lightnetwork.ph

Light Network (Kaibigan Mo!) by Zoe Broadcasting Network just launched the "I am Hope" awareness campaign that encourages personal commitment of bringing hope to life. And also to share the Gospel through online communication.

Along with this, a life with purpose is not complete without positive inspirations such as good music that can uplift our Spirit. Hence, the said network is also promoting the benefit concert "Living in the Wonder" by Tommy Walker on November 11, 2014 at SM MOA Arena. Hmm.. not familiar with him? Same here at first. I Googled about him right away and then I learned that I was already actually singing some of his songs at our local church: these great worship songs are Only a God Like You, He Knows My Name, Thank You for Loving Me, I Fix My Eyes on You, Mourning Into Dancing, Lord I Run to You and many more. Mr Walker is an American worship leader/songwriter and still very active in the ministry. He had joined Franklin Graham, Rick Warren and Luis Palau and worked with Don Moen, Israel Houghton, Ron Kenoly, and many more. He visited the Philippines for several times. See his video invite below via Youtube.



The proceeds of the upcoming concert will go to Yolanda survivors in Tacloban. I'm praying for the success of this event in Jesus' Name: may it also not just touch the lives of the concert attendees and our people in Tacloban but will bring life transformation through God's love. The ticket prices range from PhP 280 (Gen Ad) up to PhP 4290 (SVIP) and are available via SM Tickets. Specials guests are Gloryfall, Victory Worship and just recently launched their album "Radical Love" also available in iTunes, Gospel Collective, Musikatha and Ignite Gospel Music Festival Season 2 Grand Winner (to be named on September 27 at Music Museum).

I Am A Christian Blogger

"We buy into what others say about us, or we put restrictions on ourselves. What's worse is that when you consider yourself unworthy, you are putting limits on how God can work through you!

When you give up on your dreams, you put God in a box. After all, you are His creation. He made you for a purpose. Therefore your life cannot be limited any more than God's love can be contained.  I have a choice. You have a choice."







In my previous post, you just read about "God's box of surprises for me"..and I'll try hard to describe what my Maker is doing in my life right now.. I remember my prayer since February 1... "Lord, surprise me. Let Your will be done. Let Your purpose prevail." then last July 21 I added... "Almighty God, do as you promised."


Upon waiting for God to reveal His plans for me, just last weekend I received a couple of letters for me.. Surprise! I got invites [as a blogger... as a CHRISTIAN blogger]!!! Wow! Blogger pala talaga ako at may naliligaw pa pala dito harhar!




And then I prayed for it... should I confirm my attendance or not? I did my devotions and even asked for little go signs like getting permission to leave early at work. And the peace and joy of the Lord came to me. Truly, everything works together for good to those who love God according to His purpose.

And so I went to the first meeting at Ortigas with new blogger friends Joseph and Aira, sir Bong and Light Network officers Bro Next and Sis Ella. And I felt really blessed to hear their exciting news and testimonies. I'll talk about these on my next post, very exciting!


Meanwhile, on my way home from the meeting, the Lord reminded me that my influence as a Christian blogger is not pea-size actually but rather larger than life since the online blog is on the worldwide web.. maybe I got few visitors everyday but I do not know how many I am reaching with and how my random posts affect their lives... and because I blog about something ... it's now not limited inside of me but exposed to many who use the internet. My blog, my words, my faith and my influence are now outside the box. Okay, this is serious, I thought for a moment. ...with greater power comes greater responsibility.. familiar e? very true!


As I was saying ever since I started this blog, I'm imperfect and it's only by the grace of God that I can continue this journey with Him. I can't boast my gifts, talents, skills or this blog to say that I'm great and amaze people. But I'm confident to tell you that there's still hope for you and me. Jesus Christ is our only hope. I already made a decision to anchor my life in Him and I believe that He's doing something great for me. I have faith--today is no accident you 're reading this. God wants you. He loves you. Just make a decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Ask for forgiveness of your sins. Ask Him to enter and manage your life starting now. Repent and never come back to your old ways. My prayer is for you to be able to overcome your doubts and temptations to stumble and fall. You are also a clay at work by the Potter... You'll get better. God is with you. Amen.



P.S.

In my next post, I'll also share about the happenings at the OMF Literature Bloggers Bookworn Meet-up and more about my meeting with Light Network friends. Please wait for me! ^_^ God bless!

Clay Art in Process

So there was the girl in her curly locks and she actually thought of closing her blog down.. she was losing her vibe lately and could not find any word to write.. but no, His Potter had another plan in mind.. He is still at work with His clay, He is holding her carefully.

Then the girl who always prays to get better is now with a box of surprises...yes, very unexpected plans by Him is now an art to her sight. She feels excited and starstrucked at the same time.

How great Thou art plays in her crazy mind. Only a God Like You is the music of her heart. Would you mind checkout these songs?

Carrie Underwood with Vince Gill How Great thou Art
