Tuesday eManna: Testifying of our experience


I have random posts every Tuesday, posting only what comes into mind. However, after the reflections on the happenings of our today's environment, I decided that I would post my reflections on the word of the Lord every Tuesday of the Week. To make this a double digest, I decided to make this a meme and would call it , "Tuesday eManna". To know what is Manna , know it here.
eManna for Today:

Acts 22:15 For you will be a witness to Him unto all men of the things which you have seen and heard.
1 John 4:14 And we have beheld and testify that the Father has sent the Son as the Savior of the world.

What is witnessing?

From [the above verses] we see that the basis of witnessing is what we have seen and heard. You cannot be a witness to what you have not seen with your own eyes or heard with your own ears. Paul saw something with his own eyes and heard something with his own ears. God charged him to be a witness of what he had seen with his own eyes and heard with his own ears. A person is a witness to what he has seen.

Thank God, you have believed in the Lord. You have met Him, believed in Him, received Him, and gained Him. You are saved. You have been delivered from sins, received forgiveness, and obtained peace. Now that you have believed in the Lord, what joy you possess. This joy is something which you did not have before. Formerly, how heavy was the load of sin upon you! But now, thank God, this load of sin is gone. You have seen and heard something. What should you do today? You should testify of your experience. This does not mean that you have to leave your job to be a preacher. It means that you should witness to your friends, relatives, and acquaintances of what you have seen and heard, and bring them to the Lord.

Bible verses are taken from the Recovery Version of the Bible and Words of Ministry, from Watchman Nee, Messages for Building Up New Believers, pp. 274. Both are published by Living Stream Ministry, Anaheim, CA.

You are free to share words of the Lord here. If you are joining don't forget to sign on the Mr. Mcklinky below with the link of your own post so I would be able to visit your posts and enjoy the Lord's words.

Couple's Corner: Kiss and Make UP!


Rodliz’s Nest

This is obviously a late post for Couple's Corner as it is already Thursday today. Pardon me guys, my adrenaline is just at the lowest during these days. It's only weeks to go before the BIG DAY: My Baby's Day Out from my tummy!! You can imagine our body being so tired nearing the due date. But still, I would feel bad if I can't write anything here about KISS AND MAKE UP!

Something that is great between couples strongly bound in love is that for all that went wrong between us, we can always say " Let's kiss and make Up Honey". As I have said, every one of us has flaws that can lead to misunderstandings . However, we are not called to dwell into those kind of situations. We should always have time to forget past enmities, worries of yesterdays , tiffs and misunderstandings and revive the vibes that we couples shared. A brother once said, "never let the sun go down without resolving the feud between couple as that feud would become war and would result to utter destruction and division of the oneness."

I totally agree with that statement. Though I am the kind of person who never surrenders during the heat of the battle, I also always raise first the peace treaty when the stillness and quietness of the day has arrived. LOL. No matter how mad was I with my hubby because of a certain argument, I easily cool down. You know what's my secret? I just call on the name of the Lord Jesus. " OH LORD JESUS" I just keep on repeating it, till my anger cools down. Wow, the name of the Lord is truly a name above all name. It works magic on me.

Now, the kiss and make up would begin. He usually would be under the blanket pretending to sleep and I would tickle him and go under the blanket to open his eyes till we would end up laughing and laughing. My daughter would join us ending up into a big laugh wrestle making our bed so crumpled and untidy. You see, I could sleep better when it happens. If there were times, we wont say a word till we sleep it ended up being aloof in the morning. That is the reason why I always make it a point to resolve what has caused the enmity between us the soonest.

Making mistakes and having some misunderstandings is inevitable. But once you see your mistake and admit it to one another and forgive each other we would grow stronger and be reminded to take a better look at that side on the next time. Saying sorry plays an important role in a peaceful co-existence. Saying sorry does not lower your self-respect , rather it bridges the barrier between couple which resulted after a fight. While doing so, do not bring up old issues or do not refer to the mistakes of your partner. You are here to accept your mistakes and not to criticize. Give him/her an opportunity to vent his/her feelings, hurt as well as anger. Be patient and only after he/she is through, give your side in a lower tone so you would understand each other. Proper communication and not jumping to each others own opinion helps. Remember, once we get married we vowed to one mind, one speaking, and one heart. Therefore the old "I" must be done with and live your marriage life as one.

More so, place God as the anchor or the center of your relationship. Nothing could go wrong for those who continually seek the Lord's guidance. Love each other truly with the unconditional love of Christ, say "I Love you" a thousand times and most importantly say " Sorry" when you have to.

Enjoy more of Kiss and Make up stories at Couple's Corner at Rodliz Nest.

End note: I am nearing my due date , if I won't be able to join on the coming topics , please bear with me!! Thank you.

PBB Double UP: Hearing for Dengue Custody and some Sidebits

Hey everyone! Back to my favorite Reality show on ABS-CBN : PBB Double UP. Have you watched the PBB Double Upload Weekly Tasks Videos already? Please support our Housemates A girls (Rica, Melai, Cathy and Carol) who are currently on House B now by watching their videos here. (Wag nyo na isipin ang mga walang hiyang house B guys na kasama nila ngayon)The more the viewers, the more chances of them in winning the weekly task. If you only knew how they (House B boys) squashed our House A girls by talking behind their (House A girls) backs. Is that humane for them to comment like: tao ba yung mga un?, May she-man pala tayo dito and pretending to be sleepy when one of the girls is talking.

Anyway moving on, I was bursting into loud laughs here while watching the "Hearing scene for the custody of Dengue : Melai vs. Jason" .. Over to death katatawanan. Ha ha.. If you love to watch, here are the links:

ISAY VS. JASON HEARING (1/7)
ISAY VS. JASON HEARING (2/7)
ISAY VS. JASON HEARING (3/7)
ISAY VS. JASON HEARING (4/7)
ISAY VS. JASON HEARING (5/7)
ISAY VS. JASON HEARING (6/7)
ISAY VS. JASON HEARING (7/7)

Again, Bravo to Rica!! She has played well her role as the lawyer defense of Melai and the prosecutor of Jason. House B boys shame on you for disgracing/bashing and tongue lashing the person of Rica. I am calling you all to support me on stopping this senseless chauvinism caused by these narrow-minded boys like: PATRICK, ROB, HERMES AND ROCKY. We cannot tolerate such ill-mannered biases mainly to Rica and not only to her but to the rest of the original House A girls. STOP TRANSPHOBIA SA BAHAY NI KUYA!

To close, continue voting for RICA, JASON AND CAROL.

Couple's Corner: Misunderstandings on Marriage


Rodliz’s Nest

It's Couple's Corner day as it's Wednesday! I was not able to join last week due to my emergency pregnancy condition that prompted me just to lie down and rest without opening my laptop for couple of days. Sorry Guys, but I hope I can cope up with you all today. You just don't know how I missed this meme.

Last week you were talking about first year of marriage. Well for us, though we have experienced a lot of hardships when it comes to family issues of my husband's side, the Lord still arranged everything for us in a sovereign way. When we went home to the province the first Christmas when we were already married, I was already pregnant with Alikah- my daughter. We directly went home to my family and stayed there. After few days of stay, Zel decided to bring me and faced his family for the first time after the burning issues of disliking and unwanting our marriage.

The moment was somewhat strange. I felt as if it was my first time to see them , yet I have known them for a long time already. The atmosphere was quiet and nobody seemed to utter a single word. Then Zel finally broke the silence. He cried and asked for forgiveness and told them that we were having a baby, his first child. Then his mother cried and hugged him and hugged me. No words were spoken, but that time I knew was the beginning of forgiveness and acceptance. I thanked the Lord and realized that when a marriage is according to His heart's desire no stony heart can't turn into a soft mud.

So moving on, we'll talk about MISUNDERSTANDINGS...

In marriage, we have to remember that God has set terms and duration of marital covenant: 1. one man, one woman, becoming one flesh and 2. for life.. It’s our starting point. It has to be. God said it. When and if we desire to obey God more than we desire to fulfill our own desires, this one definition would radically affect what our marriages look like.

However, human as we are we are still compelled to do the way as we are. We practically still thrive to follow our own opinion, judgment, philosophies and beliefs opposing most of the time our partners. These are the causes of the main problem in marriage: Misunderstanding.

Zel and Me have plenty of them. We normally fight over small matters as I don't usually subject myself to his perceptions and decisions. I tend to overpower him in matters of the home. For example, he wants to cut down the use of electricity and some unnecessary spending, I would always have my defense on that especially if my personal engagements and choices are jeopardize. There are some instances too that we clash when it comes to financial issues that would lead to heathen discussions that would move on to not speaking with each other and letting the sun set without having each one of us lowered our pride. When he would raise his voice on me, I would not allow myself not to fight back with chains of ill- mannered speaking and hitting words that would really piss him off. LOL. ("hindi talaga ako patatalo").. The result , he would become madder at me and would just walk out when he is still able to hold on his temper. Cause if not, he could really box me by the look of his face. (buti nalang umaalis..) He he..

I admit that I am still short of the deeper understanding of the covenant of love , the way the
the Lord has wanted us to see and understand. I have read a message before that said, our husbands or our wives are our daily cross. They are there to correct us, to transform us and be conformed to the image and likeness of Christ. Each one of us has a lot of flaws and if we do not know how to submit ourselves it would cause a battle inside the home as the battlefield. We should all go back to the vows and the covenant we made on the day we sealed our love in the eyes of the Lord and the Law. We should be here for each other through thick and thin.. that would mean, be one flesh, be one soul, be one spirit. “we should view our marriages like a house where once entered, the door is bricked up and any conflicts just have to be worked out”.

I said God’s terms and conditions must be our starting point. He is the ONLY one that allows for the exception (not US). Never let the sun go down without saying sorry and fixing things with your husband... Always subject your hearts , for the picture that God has reserved to reveal His glory–the picture of eternal covenant between a husband and wife.

Happy Thanksgiving to those in the US!!!! The Lord is good all the time....

Tuesday eManna: The Food that We Eat Becomes Us

I have random posts every Tuesday, posting only what comes into mind. However, after the reflections on the happenings of our today's environment, I decided that I would post my reflections on the word of the Lord every Tuesday of the Week. To make this a double digest, I decided to make this a meme and would call it , "Tuesday eManna". To know what is Manna , know it here.


eManna for today:

Matt 26:26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread and blessed it, and He broke it and gave it to the disciples and said, Take , eat; this is My body.

John 6: 51 I am the living bread which came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he shall live forever; And the bread which I will give is My flesh, given for the life of the world.

Eating the bread of the Lord's table indicates that the Lord comes into us as our life supply and then actually becomes us. If we consider the matter of eating, we shall realize that the food we eat eventually becomes us. We may say not only that the food becomes us, but even that we become the food. Not only is there an organic union between us and the food we eat, digest, and assimilate; we are mingled with the food we assimilate into us.

How could anyone reasonably deny the fact that we are mingled with the food we eat, digest, and assimilate? In fact, assimilating food into our being goes beyond mingling. We do not have the words to describe this. However, we do know that we are mingled in a deep way with the food we eat. In a similar way, when we take in the Triune God as our food, we are truly mingled with Him. In order for the food we eat to become our life, it must be mingled with us. The principle is the same with taking in the Triune God as our food.

What we eat actually becomes part of us. Hence, this is not only a mingling; it is also a becoming. The food we digest and assimilate becomes part of our very being. For this reason, after we have thoroughly digested and assimilated our food, it is impossible for it to be located within us, because it has become a part of us. We use this matter of assimilating food to illustrate the deep significance of eating the bread of the Lord's table.

Bible verses are taken from the Recovery Version of the Bible and Words of Ministry from Witness Lee, Life-study of Mark, pp. 382-383. Both are published by Living Stream Ministry, Anaheim, CA

Lord's Day Memory Verse: John 4:24


Every Lord's day of the week my post would be a memory verse. Sharing the word of the Lord strengthens us and refreshes our spirit..

"God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truthfulness.."
John 4:24
According to typology, God should be worshiped in the place chosen by Him for His habitation and with the offerings; the place chosen by Him for His habitation typifies the human spirit and the offerings typifies Christ.

Mommy Moments: Yummy!

mommy moments

Sidenote: Thank you for those who have prayed for my condition. I have mentioned in my previous post that I was having again a pre-term labor and was advised for bed rest and have medications to calm my uterus as I am yet on my 31st week. Not yet due for the baby to be born. Please continue praying for me for my safe journey till my big day. !!!
It's Mommy Moments time and I decided to join not letting slip this wonderful topic which is all about the food that our kids love or something about their likes and dislikes when it comes to eating. Talking about Yummy, we moms definitely want to give the best nutrition to our children as what they eat becomes them. I mean in the totality of the wellness of our children, the food that they eat play a big part.

My three children are all picky eaters I can certainly tell so. They are not the type of kids who will crave for the feast on the table whenever we have some celebrations. They only go for those they love most. No matter how we wanted them to have a balance diet, most of the times our head aches as they never want to eat those we wanted them to eat.

My boys I have seen that they love fried chicken. Not chicken with tomato sauce, not adobo, not tinola, only fried goes with them. They love most the Jolli fried chicken. They also love hotdog and tocino and french fries. You see, it's not really recommended to let kids eat processed foods most of the time.

Jollibee Fried Chicken-my boys' all time favorite

With my daughter, sometimes we get frustrated on what to give her. She doesn't have any favorite healthy food. When we go to the mall, she is not excited of the food she can see. She is only excited with the games on the arcade and the toys she can play. She does not love anything sweet: ice cream, cakes, pies, puddings, she doesn't want any of them. She just eats for the sake of tasting and maybe because I am terrible when I get angry. He he. If her yaya is not patient enough to let her eat 3x a day, she would not eat also as long as she drinks her milk. But of course I see to it that her yaya force her to eat no matter how long it takes to finish. However, I see that she likes candies. Oh Lollies that's all she loves, and hmmm chips!!! too bad!

Candies make her day

But hey, there's one thing in common to them. I remember, all of them loves Lechon. They get excited with the crispy lechon skin. That's why most of our celebrations we always have lechon on the table.


Join us at Mommy Moments and tell us about the yummy favorites of your kids.

Having Emergency Pregnancy Condition

Hello all! So sorry if I was silent for few days now and was not able to participate in my favorite memes around the blogosphere. I am having another emergency pregnancy condition. I am on my 31st week, not yet close to having a full-term baby but I have again experienced a premature labor and contractions.

I was advised to bed rest for 7 days and have medication to calm my uterus. The pre-term labor could have been caused by my daily travel from home to work and vice-versa and stressful working conditions as I am not yet having my maternity leave.

I am a bit okay now. Continue to pray with me for a safe journey till my big day! Thanks and please continue to visit here.
