Personal Development, Finance and Investing For Filipinos
An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. Financial Education is your best investment.
Are you having a hard time feeling hopeful about the future? Are you going through a severe trial?
Suffering brings a perspective to life that can be gained in no other way. For instance, when circumstances cause deep heartache or sorrow, we become more aware of our frailty as human beings. How clearly then do we see the necessity of depending upon a loving God, the One who has promised to minister to our every need! Yes, we view life with increased sensitivity and depth when we're faced with hardship and struggle. God wants you to learn through suffering.
I'd like to share some spiritual learnings from our church pastor, Ptr. Jhun Cunanan of Word of Hope (A Christian Family Church). Is God really there? Is God really good? Does God really exist? Have you ever asked yourself with those questions?
We Wonder If God Is Really There For Us
Many times in life, we have disappointments. We are looking for certain things to happen and they don't always happen as expected. God has a reason for allowing things to happen. We may never understand His wisdom, but we simply have to trust His will.
So do not fear, for I am with you;
We Wonder If God Knows What He Is Doing
God brings good from every struggle in this life.
As the heavens are higher than the earth,
We Wonder If God Is Punishing Us
Does God hate me? God is not punishing you, He is preparing you. Trust His plans not your pain.
For I will forgive their wickedness
We Wonder If God Still Loves Us
You are loved beyond measure. Though we are incomplete, God loves us completely. Though we are imperfect, He loves us perfectly. Though we may feel lost and without compass, God's love encompasses us completely. He loves every one of us, even those who are flawed, rejected, awkward, sorrowful, or broken.
You are loved forever!
38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life,
See, the enemy is puffed up;
But I trust in your unfailing love;
17 Though the fig tree does not bud
Quoting this quote from Mandy Hale, "Trust the wait. Embrace the uncertainty. Enjoy the beauty of becoming. When nothing is certain, anything is possible."
We do not live by emotion. We do not go by the appearance of circumstances. We live by FAITH!
God is good all the time. And all the time, God is good!
With GOD, everything is POSSIBLE!
As for God, His way is perfect: The Lord’s word is flawless; He shields all who take refuge in Him.
(Psalm 18:30 NIV)
