*sigh* My dad’s leaving for the Phils. in a few hours. Weird when one by one, the family leaves. I know it’s only for a month or so, but with my brother gone too, it’s weird visiting sj. I hope my mom will be ok. My dad hates having to leave her; they’re hardly apart. If you can, just pray for safe keeping for him. thanks.
“Jesus, thank you for this food. Please let us be happy and healthy and (whimper) please help me to listen more to Mamam. In Jesus name, Amen.”

tomorrow is September 11. please pray that our nation will be safe… and that it will be a day of remembrance and peace. “Father, heal our land, hear our cry and turn your nations back to You. Forgive our sins and heal our broken land.”
*ouch* scrapes and shapes? say what? do what? who me? but, but… okeys. i see…i get it. i believe but c’mon, i gotta be strong prolong the sentimental notes like a song while all along i cling like a monk to all the wrongs bestowed while grace has eminently flowed from the wrists stains from sin’s chains while here i am playin like a child with these silly games of pride i try’ta hide, but i can’t seem t’escape my emotional suicide there’s been so much to pray for lately…sometimes it seems like my list has been just accumulating…so many of my friends are going through crazy stuff and i keep hearing “please pray for me”…i always tell them i will. Sometimes i feel that the request and the response for prayer become routine that sometimes i wonder if we really mean it when we ask someone to pray for us…and even more so when we tell them that we will pray for them. Because i know i’m sometimes guilty of this. when was the last time you asked someone to be accountable of something vulnerable in your life, and asked them to pray for you? when was the last […]
i dunno how to write about BASIC, so i’ll include a desperate prayer i wrote 2 weeks before BASIC. “Lord, BASIC. You have a plan for BASIC. You are calling people to you even as I write you this request. You already know who is coming. Your glory is set. But God, i don’t know what’s gonna happen. I could be planning for an empty room, all i know is that I have to plan. But I know You want glory- i know you want hearts to turn to You. I know You can’t wait until You can search throughout the room and take what is Yours. Father, the beauty of my limited vision is nothing except the mere orchestrating of the slow revelation of Your power and faithfulness. It is my faith that is tested and it may just be my secret victory, but i know there will be a myriad blessings that will overflow.” amen. how God answered that prayer is amazing.
days have been busy but God still makes time for God :). mel and i was praying for vision today, and when i went downstairs to the computer, i kept looking at the BASIC flyer. I just kept staring at it, thinking about what God wants, thinking about how to maximize the nite. I know i can only do so much that the senses will take in, but it’s God who weaves in the heart. but i want to do my end of God’s vision. This has been my prayer these days, that God will show me what He wants. I want to dream big, even for a small church. I need to expect great things…the greater the risk in faith, the greater His glory in faithfulness, all according to His will. After this busy week, it’s time to sit down, rest, then mobilize.
