May He allow you to gaze at the cross every day of your life. No matter what happens, come what may, may our God open your eyes, loosen the grip of your hands, and loose your tongue to say, “Father, you make beauty, even out of ugly things. You do all things, you do all things, you do all things well.”
Tenth Avenue North: The Overflow Devo (Day 7)
Our God is a redeemer. It’s who He is. It’s what He does. He redeems. Which means, among other things, “to make up for. to restore worth or value.” Jesus makes up for our lack. He restores our value. By dying for us, He gives us a value and worth that we could have never had or achieved on our own.
Tenth Avenue North: The Overflow Devo (Day 6)
Minsan hindi ko malaman kung concern o nangingielam lang.
Three things that I realized from fifteen year-old me (as I what saw from my old devo notebooks):
1. Ang ganda pala ng sulat ko kahit sa mga notes ko sa service.
2. Ang sipag ko pala magnotes tuwing QT.
3. Bago ipakita ni God kung ano talaga ang purpose natin, minsan pinapakita muna yung mga kailangang tanggalin na midset sa buhay natin :)
Kaya dapat ayusin ang sulat at kailangan detailed and notes ko this time, again para sa future hindi ako malito XD

Christ came to forgive and to free us. I hope you know that, deep down. You can screw up and know that there is always mercy to rise again. And not only that, but you can know that the same power that raised Christ from the dead is living inside you, So you don’t have to do those things you hate anymore.
Tenth Avenue North: The Overflow Devo (Day 4)
But the tough part is realizing that in order to get the fullest joy, and the greatest pleasure, you have to do things His way. You have to wait. Often times you have to go without. But you go without so that you can get something better.
Tenth Avenue North: The Overflow Devo (Day 3)
Rob your enemy of their ability to offend you, by gladly taking the full brunt of their attack. It is then, and only then, that hostility is defeated and love conquers death.

Bakit nyo ako finollow? :)
Did you know that the most intimidating classmates are usually more insecure than you are? They just look tough in the outside but in the inside they’re actually trying to put up a face to intimidate others. They are afraid that people might know what’s really on the inside. They’re scared person. They’re harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd, longing to be accepted.

Art out of chaos. Beauty out of ugliness. Or as some of the poets have said, He conquers death by death itself. Our Redeemer beats Death at his own game. Hope rises.
Tenth Avenue North: The Overflow Devo (Day 1)
It’s been three days since my summer just got started and I’ve been spending time here in this pink box. My room is pink so you get the point. However, I can’t feel it that much because I’m too lazy and scared to evaluate my professors and see my grades afterwards. The rule on our PWEbbs is that we must evaluate our professors first and I’ll be able to see my grades.
Maybe I’ll do it tomorrow, or never.
Gusto ko na ring magtrabaho, kailangan ko ng pera sa youth camp!
(Will be posting stuff about my thoughs for the past three days later on so stay tuned!)
