Anong hanap mo te?! (CHECK THE CHECKLIST!)

 In my 23 years of existence, well turning 24 on …… ๐Ÿ˜Š I actually went into relationships but then the pattern goes the same: I FAILED! I kept on coming back thinking I could be better next time but I also keep on failing. These failed maybe because I wasn’t ready. It wasn’t the right time or it was not with the right guy. 

I remember the Lord telling me “NO!”, “Enough!”, “Stop!” many times to my previous relationships, needless to say I didn’t listen. I learned from my disobedience, I was carried away by my own desire sa inaakala kong pang habang buhay na kakiligan, kaligayahan, at feeling cloud 9 kapag kasama siya. Akala ko sa tao ko matatagpuan ang tunay na pagmamahal, tunay na ligaya, tunay na karamay, pero HINDI PALA!! It is from my own desires that hurt me. Then I begun asking myself why am I always hurt? Why do I always allow it? Why does it end up a disaster? How long this pain will lasts? Will I ever love again? I went through heartaches at hindi lang basta heartaches, nag iwan ng malalim na sugat at matinding marka ng sakit. Simple lang naman ang gusto ko, I wanted to be loved! 

After a long time of searching, being careless and being disobedient, God revealed to me something, “what’s in your treasure chest, my child?”, “what are the things that you worry about?” During my teenage years and up to now, finding and having a special someone (a boyfriend in particular) is what consumes my mind. And I considered it as an IDOLATRY. Gaya nga ng lyrics sa Clear the stage by Jimmy Needham

Anything I put before my God is an idol. Anything I want with all my heart is an idol. Anything I can’t stop thinking of is an idol. Anything that I give all my love is an idol.

We all know that our God is a jealous God as stated in the book of Exodus 20:5. I was so preoccupied about love. I didn’t allow God to take over everything or lead the relationship. Many times he told me to surrender my treasure chest but I didn’t do it, well, partially maybe, but not all. 

Because of heartaches and being mislead by my emotions, I started listing my CHECKLIST!!! ๐Ÿ˜Š At itinaas ko ito sa Lord. Actually, I believe He is the One who put all these qualities in my heart. So, standard namin ito ng Lord. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ano nga ba ang hanap ko te? ๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿ“

โœ”๏ธ Man of VISION

“Women, do not ever marry a man without vision. The worst disaster of your life is living a life without vision! Without vision men perish dragging their wives along.” Proverbs 29:18

He must have DREAMS, DIRECTION, PURPOSE and MISSION. To be honest, ako yung taong ayaw sa plano at relasyon na SUNTOK SA BUWAN!! He should know where he is going and he pursue that direction. And his vision is not his own but the vision of God. He hit God’s vision right at the very center! 

โœ”๏ธ Man of FAITH

“And whitout faith it is impossible to please God.” Hebrews 11:6

He must have a BIG FAITH not big muscles! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜‰โœŒ๏ธ His asset is not his face but his faith. He loves risking it with God by believing every word and every promise even when it seems impossible! He move mountains, soar high, do impossible things, accomplish great things and witness miracles all because of his faith in God. 

โœ”๏ธ Man of OBEDIENCE

“Some time later God tested Abraham. He said to Him, “Abraham!”, “Here I am!” He replied. Then God said, “Take your son your only sob, whom you love-Isaac and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you. Early the next day (morning) Abraham got up and loaded his donkey. He took with him twi of his servants and his sob Isaac. When he had enough wood for the burnt offering, he aet out for the place of God had told him.” Genesis 22:1-3

He is a man of no Ifs, no buts, no questions asked, just obey and know when to surrender.

โœ”๏ธ Man of INTEGRITY

“The righteous who walks in his integrityโ€” blessed are his children after him!” Proverbs 20:7

Yung lalaking may isang salita. When he says “yes” then yes, and when he says “no” then no. Yung lalaking marunong tumupad ng pangako. Yung lalaking hindi paasa at pafall. โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yung lalaking may paninindigan. 

โœ”๏ธ Man after God’s own heart

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your spul and with all your mind.” Matthew 22:37

He is secured in God’s love and needs nothing but Him. Go crazy inlove for Jesus, blazing His passion for Him and extreme to obey His commands. 

Ayan. Is it too good to be true? Nah. I don’t see it like that. And wait, there’s more! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Habang lumilipas ang panahon mas nakikita ko yung mga bagay na mahahalaga, kaya naman may mga idinagdag pa ako sa checklist ko. Here: 

โœ”๏ธFAMILY-ORIENTED man

“….but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15

Yung lalaking may pagpapahalaga sa kanyang pamilya. Yung lalaking may respeto at marunong sumunod sa kanyang mga magulang. Yung lalaking pinapahalagahan ang opinion at approval ng kanyang pamilya. At eto sabi nga sa showtime ang TUNAY NA LALAKI ay MAMA’s BOY!!!! Di ko alam pero attracted din talaga ako sa lalaking malambing sa kanyang pamilya. ๐Ÿ’•

โœ”๏ธ Man of RESPONSIBLITY 

And when I say responsibility, a manโ€™s divine role is to be a provider for his family. So I guess you know what I mean. A man who knows to save and manage his resources and finances with wisdom and balance. 
So that’s it. ๐Ÿ˜Š Gusto ko lang klaruhin at ulitin,

ang pag-ibig, hindi yan hinahanap (lalo na kapag babae ka), kusa yang dumarating. At sa pag-aantay mo, ayusin mo din ang sarili mo. Kung gusto mo ng quality na partner, kailangan sikapin mo ding maging better person ka para sknya. 

Kung gusto mo ding magkaroon ng CHECKLIST, then seek God. He is the perfect matchmaker. ๐Ÿ˜Š Alam niya yung standards na akma para sayo. Sa pag-aantay mo ng forever mo, maximize your singleness to God. Kasi when you have God in your in life, you have everything. 

Kung sa tingin mo kulang pa yung relationship mo kay God sana mainspire kita to get deeper. I pray na maexperience mo din yung satisfaction, yung abounding love at grace ni Lord. 

Bago ang kung ano pa mang relationship yang gusto mo, o kung sino man yang taong ninanais mo, si Lord muna. Ahm, palakas ka kay Lord. Hehehe. ๐Ÿ˜‰ At ang mahalaga sa lahat, magpaayos at magpasakop kay Lord. ๐Ÿ™

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13

Salamat sa pagbisita ng blog ko! ๐Ÿ˜Š Sana nainspire kita. Sana nablessed ka. ๐Ÿ˜Š God bless you! ๐Ÿ’•

FIGHT of the CENTURY

  

MayPac fight became the talk of the crowd. It was also known as the “FIGHT OF THE CENTURY” 

Now, let me share to you my thoughts on this fight. It may be over but it won’t stop there because the fight will always be remembered. 

First, why FIGHT OF THE CENTURY?

  • It’s also known as the BATLLE FOR GREATNESS/ BATTLE FOR LEGACY
  • Age, Height, Reach, Record, Knockouts, Rounds boxed…  

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7

1. You can play it safe but not be remembered

After 12 rounds of running and hugging- I mean boxing (HAHA), I was kinda disappointed to see a fight where no fight really happened. 

Those who play safe in life will not make any difference.

We must FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9

If we want to be remembered we must not go with the flow but we must go against the flow. Don’t play it safe. Take risks.

2. Fight even if injured

FYI, si Pacman ay injured sa right shoulder niya even before the fight begins and Mayweather kept on punching Pacman sa right shoulder niya. Can you imagine how painful it is?

Pacman finished the game, he finished the fight even if he is injured, even if it hurts, even if it cost him to give up.

Minsan sa buhay nasasaktan ka, nadadapa ka, nahihirapan ka, naguguluhan ka, hopeless ka…but God says,

The Lord will fight for you, you need only to BE STILL. Exodus 14:14

God can turn YOUR MESS INTO A MESSAGE and YOUR TEST INTO A TESTRIMONY. 

3. Fight even if it’s done

It’s a good fight. I thought I won the fight. –Pacman

It actually breaks my heart upon hearing those words from him. Like all of you, I was also expecting that Pacman will won the fight but things don’t happened as planned. 

Pacman did his best, lumaban hanggang 12 rounds..he has the reason to ask God, bakit siya natalo? All along pinanghawakan ko ang promises mo pero natalo ako, bakit mo ako binigo and all. But win or lose HE KEPT THE FAITH. 

May kanya-kanya tayong ipinaglalaban sa buhay, may kanya-kanya tayong battles in life, minsan akala mo panalo ka sa laban, minsan akala mo meron ka pang ipinaglalaban, minsan akala mo tapos na ang laban, minsan panalo ka, minsan natatalo, minsan malungkot, minsan masakit, minsan masaya but we must not forget that win or lose, WE MUST KEPT THE FAITH. 

and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

Life is about ONE CHOICE: GIVE UP or GET UP!! 

If we want to FIGHT FOR LEGACY we must take the risk, let’s not play it safe, never live in your comfort zone, learn to take a step of faith and trust God. YOU ARE CALLED TO BE MORE. YOU ARE A MAN OF GOD, A DISCPLE-MAKER, A WORLD CHANGER. 

FIGHT.   

TO THE MAN WHO OWNS MY HEART โค๏ธ

  To the man who owns my heart, I thought of you again last night before drifting off to sleep. I donโ€™t know why no matter what I do, I canโ€™t stop thinking about you. I remember the first day we met, I fell in love with you because I saw something in you that I cannot see with someone.. or something else. You are patient, kind, slow to anger, generous and something that struck me.. you never keep record of my wrongs. I can never out-give you. Everything that I do is nothing compared to what youโ€™ve done. A lot of times I ask, โ€œWho am I that you are mindful of?โ€ โ€œWhat can I do to give back all the undeserved love?” But I always get the same reply, โ€I loved you first. To let me in your heart is more than enough.โ€œ The years with you are the best years of my life. You donโ€™t know how healthier my heart gets every time I pour out all my thoughts on you. Unlike other friends of mine, you listen without judgement. And you know how sneaky you are? You let me decide on my own yet you would do things to protect me from any harm that my decisions would lead me to! That annoyed me at first but I learned to appreciate it as our relationship gets deeper. A lot of times we argue over things and stuff. I want to go left, you are always right. I want to do this and that, but you would disapprove. Our fights are always short though because usually I would end up heartbroken whenever I follow what I want. Thing is, you never fail to catch me every time I fall. I always end up thanking you for interceding. I remember when you first called me “my belovedโ€ after my first heartbreak.. I felt so loved. I was shattered having been betrayed but your words assure me that you are with me. You will never leave me nor forsake me no matter how worse things get. Above all, you will love me no matter how worse I become. Your unconditional love melts my heart in awe. You even said, โ€œI will make you my bride forever.โ€ Your love perseveres. You were faithful, though I am not. You didnโ€™t let me go even if a lot of times I pushed you away. Youโ€™re not like the rest who would step out of my life and wait for me to reach out. You are always the one who would do the first move, though I know you were hurt for my mistakes.  Now I know that one day, I will get married and will have kids. I want my husband-to-be to know you too. Not just know you, but have the same relationship that I have with you. To recognize that you are the center of it all and our lives are meaningless without you. I want a worshiping family. Someday we will see each other face to face and you will ask me, โ€œWhat did you do with the life I gave you?โ€. God, you own my heart, my life.. I want to be able to answer You that dayโ€ฆI want my list to be long enough! I want You to be proud of me and tell me, โ€œWell done!”  And I guess no matter how far I run away, I will end up with You..because my soul was made to yearn..for You! I love You so much.. so much that I will obey. Bride-ly yours,  Charmie P. โค๏ธ

Paano mainlove ang Kristiyanong Lalake? ๐Ÿ‘ฑ๐Ÿผ

Ito ang katuloy ng kuwento ko…โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‰

Shinare niya sa akin kung paano niya niligawan yung kristiyanong babae na gusto niya. Sinend niya sa akin yung draft. 

Sa totoo lang habang binabasa ko yung draft niya, mas nangibabaw sa akin yung tanong na “Paano mainlove ang kristiyanong lalake?”

Paano nga ba?  


Yan yung draft niya. Huwag kayong mag-alala, humingi ako ng permission sknya. Hahahaha. 

Anong masasabi mo? ๐Ÿ’ญ

Paano nga ba mainlove ang kristiyanong lalake? Kagaya ng sabi ko may dalawang klase ng kristiyano, yung isa rooted (kristiyano sa gawa) at yung isa naman simpleng kristiyano lang (kristiyano sa pangalan). 

Kapag nainlove ang rooted christian (kristiyano sa gawa) na lalake, he gets intentional. Ibig sabihin hindi lang siya yung lalake na puro pahaging lang o kaya paramdam lang, ito yung mga lalake na clear at pure ang intentions nila. Sila rin yung lalakeng tumatakbo muna sa Lord kapag nainlove, nagppray at humihingi ng confirmation. Hindi sila basta-basta gumagawa ng move hanggat walang GO signal ang Lord. Marunong silang mag-antay, marunong silang tumupad ng usapan at marunong silang rumespeto ng babae! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sila yung lalake na kapag nanligaw alam mong hindi magiging suntok sa buwan ang magiging relasyon niyo kasi para sa kanya kapag niligawan ka niya he has the intention to marry you. Ito yung mga lalakeng pinaghahandaan ka kasi alam nila na hindi ka basta-basta. Ibig sabihin, ito yung mga lalake na may standards. 

E paano naman mainlove ang simpleng kristiyano (kristiyano sa pangalan) na lalake? Para sa akin sobrang halata ang pagkakaiba. Ang simpleng kristiyano na lalake parang naglalaro lang yan. Lahat sknya medyo!! Medyo maayos ang buhay, medyo mahal ka, medyo man of God, medyo seryoso sayo, medyo lingkod ng Panginoon, medyo matino, lahat medyo! Kumbaga, nasa prosesa pa! Hindi sigurado sa bawat desisyon niya, hindi sigurado sa bawat ginagawa niya, hindi sigurado kung ano talaga ang gusto niya. Sila yung mga lalake na di marunong manligaw ng tama. Dinadaan lahat sa flirt, kasi alam nila na ang babae madali lang lumabot ang puso. 

Kung ang nanliligaw sayo ay isang rooted christian (kristiyano sa gawa), aba! CONGRATULATIONS! Pero huwag ka namang o-OO agad. Ipag pray mo din. Humingi ka ng confirmation sa Lord. Saka mahalaga ding kilalanin mo muna ng mabuti. Huwag tayong magpapadala sa panlabas na katauhan, get to know the person deeper! Iba din kasi kapag kilala mo yung tao. Alright? ๐Ÿ˜Š

Kapag naman ang nanliligaw sayo ay simpleng kristiyano (kristiyano sa pangalan), pag isipan mo ng BONGGANG-BONGGA! HAHA! Please lang, huwag kang magpapadala sa emosyon mo! Haha. Hindi porke crush mo, o-OO ka na. Uulitin ko, utak muna bago puso. Test before you trust!! Alright? ๐Ÿ˜Š

Gaya nga ng sabi sa Song of Solomon 8:4 “Promise me, O women of Jerusalem, not to awaken love until the time is right.”

Siguro ngayon napapaisip ka, may lalake pa bang rooted christian (kristiyano sa gawa)? Ang sagot ko, OO!! Sa totoo lang hindi sila hinahanap, kusa silang darating sa buhay mo. Gaya nga ng sabi ko, sila yung mga lalake na may standards. Nag iisip din yang mga yan. Nag oobserve. Nagppray. 

Hindi mo sila madadaan sa pa-cute mo, pa-charming mo, pa-flirt mo or anything na gagawin mo para ma-win sila, kasi para sa kanila mahalaga ang approval ng Lord. 

Sa totoo lang mataas ang respeto ko sa mga lalakeng kagaya niya, kagaya ng iba sa inyo. Saludo po ako! Ipagpatuloy niyo po! Ihawa niyo po yung tamang standard ng panliligaw. ๐Ÿ˜Š 

Kayo po ang nagiging dahilan namin para maniwala sa GOD’S BEST! Kayo din po ang dahilan kung bakit tumitino ang ibang mga babae. Kayo din po ang dahilan kung bakit tumitino ang ibang mga lalake. Ipagpatuloy niyo po at ihawa niyo. 

Para sa bawat lalake na nagbabasa nito, if you do not have the intention to marry the girl, do not court her. Kaya mong mabuhay pansamantala na walang babae. Kaya mong maging masaya ng walang babae. Kaya mong ayusin yung buhay mo ng walang babae.

Take it easy, bro. God first! Take it slow! Kaibiganin mo muna. Ayusin mo muna buhay mo. Be financially stable, importante din yan. Mag plano ka muna bago ka gumawa ng move! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Mabuti pa siguro na habang nag aantay ka sa sagot sayo ng Lord, habang nag aantay ka ng confirmation, mag equip ka ng mga kabataang lalake na susunod sa yapak mo. Mga kabataang lalake na marunong rumespeto ng babae, nakukuntento sa pagmamahal ng Lord, nakakapag antay, at inaayos ang buhay.๐Ÿ‘ฑ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿผ

Psalm 37:4 “Take delight in the Lord and he will give You your heartโ€™s desires.” 

PS: Sa aking kaibigan na nagbahagi ng kanyang kuwentong pag-ibig, SALAMAT! You inspire me to write and believe that there’s still God’s Best! Youre the man, Bro! God bless you! ๐Ÿ‘ผ๐Ÿผ

Paano mainlove ang Kristiyanong Babae? ๐ŸŒธ

Someone PMed me and asked me this question, “Paano mainlove ang Kristiyanong Babae?”

Medyo napahinto ako at napaisip. Ang sagot ko, “rooted ba yan o simpleng kristiyano lang?” (#RealTalk: may dalawang klase kasi ng kristiyano, kristiyano sa gawa at yung isa naman, kristiyano sa pangalan lang) kaya yan po ang reply ko.

Sagot niya, “rooted christian”, 

   

Paano nga ba mainlove ang isang rooted christian (kristiyano sa gawa), di yan basta-basta nagpapakita ng motibo. Tahimik lang yan, nagtatago ng feelings at nagppray! Kapag ang kristiyano sa gawa na babae nainlove, tatakbo yan sa Lord. Si Lord ang mentor niyan sa pag-ibig, hindi yung emosyon niya at ibang tao. 

Kapag naman simpleng kristiyano lang (kristiyano sa pangalan), mahahalata mo agad! Medyo showy! Careless kumilos, laban lang ng laban. Di muna pinag iisipan yung move na gagawin niya. Puro emosyon lang pinapairal. 

Kapag ang babaeng gusto mong ligawan rooted. Aba! Mag isip ka, mag pray ka, mag fasting ka! HAHAHAHA! Kasi yan yung babaeng kuntento na sa pagmamahal ng Lord kumbaga para sa kanya isa kang BONUS o REWARD na matatanggap niya sa Lord.

Kapag ang babaeng gusto mong ligawan naman ay simpleng kristiyano lang, push mo yan! HAHA. Pag isipan mo din ng mabuti. Pag isipan mo kung makakatulong ba siya sayo sa pag grow mo spiritually and as a person or mag hihilaan lang kayo pababa.

Napansin ko kasi sa henerasyon natin ngayon, kadalasan ang downfall ng mga kabataan ay ang tinatawag na “PAG-IBIG”. Kapag nainlove na, nawawal na sa focus, nawawala na sa goal, nabibitawan ang calling, nawawala sa ministry…yan yung tinatawag na wrong timing o kaya wrong person. Kumbaga di pa hinog, pinitas mo na. 

Gaya nga ng sabi sa Song of Solomon 8:4 “Promise me, O women of Jerusalem, not to awaken love until the time is right.”

Kaya ang “PAG-IBIG” pinagdarasal yan, niluluhod yan sa Lord at pinag iisipan. Huwag lagi pairalin ang puso, lagi mo ring samahan yan ng utak. 

Para naman sa lahat ng babae na nagbabasa po nito, gusto kong malaman mo na YOU ARE WORTH PURSUING. Unahin mo munang mahalin at respetuhin ang sarili mo, maging masaya ka muna sa sarili mo, maging kumpleto ka at maging buo. Para kapag binigay na siya sayo ni Lord, BUO KA. Huwag kang mag madali, maniwala ka sa God’s Best. ๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒผ

Psalm 37:4 “Take delight in the Lord and he will give You your heartโ€™s desires.” 

Abangan ang susunod na kabanata…๐Ÿ˜Šโ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‰ To God be the Glory! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘‘

Ang huling tula na isusulat ko para sa’yo!ย 

“Ang huling tula na isusulat ko para sa’yo” by Juan Miguel Severo. 

Biniro ako ng kaibigan ko matapos naming mapanood ang video niya at dinare niya akong gumawa din ng aking huling tula, agad-agad!! 

Kaya nais ko pong ibagi sa inyo ang aking agad-agad na gawang huling tula na isusulat ko para sa’yo. Hahaha. 

Ito na ang huling tula na isususlat ko. Huling tula na bibigkasin ko para sayo. Huling salita na kailangang malaman mo. Dahil pagod na pagod na ako. Pagod na pagod na ako sa paulit-ulit. Paulit-ulit. Paulit-ulit na pag sabi mong mahal mo ako kapag walang sumasalo sayo. Sa paulit-ulit, paulit-ulit na pinaparamdam mong mahalaga ako kapag walang nagpapahalaga sayo. Sa paulit ulit na pangako na lagi namang napapako. Sa paulit ulit mong sinasabing magbabago na ako na wala namang nakikitang pagbabago. Nakakasawa na. Nakakapagod na. Kaya tama na. Huli na to. Ito na ang huling tula na isusulat ko para sa’yo. 

HAHAHAHAHA. Inspired by Juan Miguel Severo. 

Ramdam mo ba ang emosyon? Hahaha. Dapat lang! May halong emosyon talaga yan! HAHA.
