God Forgives and Forgets.

Psalm 51[a]

For the director of music. A psalm of David. When the prophet Nathan came to him after David had committed adultery with Bathsheba.

1 Have mercy on me, O God,
according to your unfailing love;
according to your great compassion
blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash away all my iniquity
and cleanse me from my sin.

3 For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is always before me.
4 Against you, you only, have I sinned
and done what is evil in your sight;
so you are right in your verdict
and justified when you judge.
5 Surely I was sinful at birth,
sinful from the time my mother conceived me.
6 Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb;
you taught me wisdom in that secret place.

7 Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean;
wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
8 Let me hear joy and gladness;
let the bones you have crushed rejoice.
9 Hide your face from my sins
and blot out all my iniquity.

10 Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
11 Do not cast me from your presence
or take your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

13 Then I will teach transgressors your ways,
so that sinners will turn back to you.
14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God,
you who are God my Savior,
and my tongue will sing of your righteousness.
15 Open my lips, Lord,
and my mouth will declare your praise.
16 You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it;
you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.
17 My sacrifice, O God, is[b] a broken spirit;
a broken and contrite heart
you, God, will not despise.

18 May it please you to prosper Zion,
to build up the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then you will delight in the sacrifices of the righteous,
in burnt offerings offered whole;
then bulls will be offered on your altar.

  1. Psalm 51:1 In Hebrew texts 51:1-19 is numbered 51:3-21.

  2. Psalm 51:17 Or The sacrifices of God are

I thank God for letting me hear this message. I have been a Christian for about 2 years, but it was and will never be a perfect walk, we , people, are naturally sinners but because of the Love of Christ we are free from being FOREVER SLAVE IN SIN. Most of us, there is one thing about us that only God knows about it. When Pastor said it, I know I am one of those people.I have this problem of not forgiving myself, I feel like God has already recorded what I have done wrong in the past, I am guilty of that sin, sometimes it pulls me away to worship God, to share the word or even to go to church but I thank God for His mercy and unending grace, I heard this message. We just have to humble ourselves and ask for His forgiveness and we will see how amazing our God is for not telling us “You did it again Sons, Daughters, you sinned again” but He will forgive us, restore us and forget about it. God willingly Healed David. He heals. In the same way:

If God can forgive lovingly without a second thought then who are you not to forgive someone who pleads for your forgiveness. There is no forgiveness if we don’t let ourselves forget.

There is no major sin that God cannot deal nor forgive. Even in times of failure God desires our worship reviving and restoring us back to Him.

Thank you Lord for restoring me. For making me whole again.

Are you busy?

BUSY IS A DRUG.

ARE YOU BUSY?

Having so many tasks to be accomplished?

Feeling like you need extra hours after a long day?

Are you busy?

As a new employee I have so many errands nowadays, juggling my time with friends, family and work, hoping that I could spend time with each and everyone but suddenly while I was thinking of the things that I have to do for a certain day I realized how foolish am I to not think about “church,” about spending time with doing the purpose that God has given me. I was so busy all the time worrying about how can I manage to see my friends out, to think about my family how they are doing when I am not around because of my shift schedule. I felt that guilt, God was so faithful in my life, He provided every single thing that I need after I graduated this May, I got my first job as a trender and now I’ve already moved as an IBMer, awesome right? These two companies really made my early – professional life exciting!

I prayed for this but I never expected that this would be so amazing. Though everything is part of His blessings, I should never stop pursuing my purpose, reaching people who are not yet accepting God in their lives, these things should never be a reason for me not to think about lost souls, for me not to pray for every single person that God wants me to reach through His ways.  Remember how important in His kingdom even one soul.

I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent. Luke 15:7

Remember: Doing nothing does not exempt you in sinning, it keeps you away from God’s purpose in your life. Being busy is also the same thing. Unless you are busy pursuing His ways. Never let your errands be a hindrance to pray when you wake up, to pray before you sleep and to do what the Bible says. It is never an excuse.

THIS IS WHAT GOD WANTS YOU TO DO:

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, MATTHEW 28:19

Pagbabago.

Sabi nga, “Change is the only permanent in the world.”

Pagbabago lamang ang hindi magbabago kailanman.

Totoo nga naman. Parang halos bawat araw may pagbabago sa paligid natin, minsan hindi natin napapansin may nag iba na pala, maaring sa sarili mismo o di kaya sa ibang tao.

Katulad ng season ng buhay ko ngayon, maraming malaking pagbabago ang nagaganap hehe oo marami. Yung iba masasabi kong hindi ko kontrolado yung iba naman kailangan ko para sa tinatawag nating “maturity.”

Bad trip no? Haha kasi habang lumilipas ang panahon ang dameng tao yung nakikilala natin pero pag nasanay na tayo na kasama sila darating rin sa point na kelangan nyo ng maghiwalay.

I WILL MISS YOU TRENDERS.

God is good, the great provider, He is so amazing for giving me such wonderful blessings for the past weeks. :)

JULY 29, 2013 — Normal day, first day of the week. :) around 3 o’clock in the afternoon, my cellphone rung, I rushed out of the room to answer it and to here it clearly, this is what I heard, “Is this Bridgette Bancoleta? Hi I’m __________, I would like to ask if you are still willing to pursue your application here in IBM?”

As in,OMYGGGGIII! XD I was really surprise! I said, “YES SIR, OF COURSE, I AM VERY MUCH WILLING,” Hahahahah really sounds excited and over acting!

another set of people to be introduced,
hoping that I could still see them everyday,
those laughter and joke times we had, I wish I could bring all of those stuffs.  T_T

Amazingly, within 2 weeks, I am already attached with these cool guys! That’s why it is hard for me to leave the trenders, though they are telling me that they are happier when I’m out of the office haahahahhaha SWEET XD HAHAHHAHA =))) Still, I will miss them.

IF ONLY I COULD HAVE MY OWN COMPANY, I WOULD HIRE ALL OF MY FRIENDS SO THERE WILL BE NO PARTING TIME. LOL =)))))  But this is impossible, people come and go in our lives. Only we can decide to stay connected or just let the distance set us apart.

Maybe we are meant to spend a certain part of our lives with certain people … and move on

but as of now, I am still not fully decided, praying for God’s guidance and wisdom to come upon me. :)

Titanium 5.0 Review. Smart, simple, security that fits!

TITANIUM SECURITY

hey everyone! :) It’s been a long time since my last post here, :) I was busy these past few weeks. =) Well anyway, I will talk about this amazing software!

What if someone is already hacking your facebook account???? Or maybe, while you are surfing the internet, someone is tracking your activities, hmmmm sounds bad right? (You must agree! ;) ) With the technology we have today, how can we assure that we are secure just by our own selves! Duuuh!?? We are just human and we cannot protect our machines haha :D  (though human programs the machines) So we really need a strong software that will assure us that our data are secured in the internet.

Nowadays every one is very fond in using the world wide web, even non-adults can access the internet, that is why TREND MICRO also innovate their products in order to go along the rising threats around the social networking sites, search engines, download centers etc.,

This really fits your needs! Imagine, your computer is protected REAL-TIME, of course you must have internet connection to maximize its usage, but nonetheless, nothing can’t beat titanium 5.0 (except for its higher versions hahahaha) with its friendly GUI , strong scan , multi-layered protection and convenient usage, it’s worth the price you will pay! GRAB ONE NOW!!

All Weather

May 19, 2013

You may know by now that life is not always about good times—sometimes we are faced by challenges that seem to cripple and sidetrack us. At the same time, our lives aren’t just about suffering, because there are always reasons to celebrate and be thankful.

Stormy season.
There is a season for every activity under the sun.

Ecclesiastes 3:1
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens

Time to mourn, time to suffer time to be happy, but what are we doing when we are in stormy season of our lives? What should be our attitude during these days. I was very blessed hearing thing preaching, because these past few weeks, I’ve been suffering depression, from being away from my friends, having no work, personal and financial problems. After this, I just realized that I should not be in a great sadness but instead, rejoicing with the presence of our God, our Hope and the provider.

It is easy to miss to what we have around when we focus in some thing. Especially when we are distress, we focus in our problems, instead of focusing how big is God.

John 5:17

In his defense Jesus said to them, “My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working.”

God is doing something good in your life.

We neglect the good things in life. Feeling mo yung sa iba na maganda ang ginagawa ni Lord pwera sayo, yung pakiaramdam na, Lord bakit siya, ganito buhay maganda maayos pero ako naman yung palaging nandito para Sa’yo Lord. Aaminin ko, bilang tao, oo ganyan ang feeling ko sometimes, nacocompare yung blessings na nakukuga ko sa ibang tao, tapos may mga questions ako kasi bakit yung iba parang mas maganda yung events sa buhay nila, napagtanto ko na kahit kailan man mali iyon, masyado ko lang naliitan yung tingin sa biyaya  ng Panginoon sa akin. Narealize ko, sa mga oras na problemado ako sa buhay ko, dun konti-konting nakikilala ng pamilya ko ang Panginoon, nagsisimula na sila sa Victory, si Mama at si Danisse, amazing diba? :D Greatest blessing ever, salvation ng family :D So bakit kailangan kong malungkot? :D

After Service with Mama, Danisse and Anjeli :) Victory Ubelt

sabi ni Lord sa atin, Anak lagi akong nag mumoonwalk sa harap. You are focus in the problem in your life.

God has a personal message for you. The book of philippians. Chap 1.
Verse 3-5 20-21 25-27 29

Be joyful. Pray with joy.
Evrn in the midst of suffering. We can if we understand the word of God about suffering. Suffering is inevitable.

1 Peter 4:12-13
12 Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.

Suffering and rejoice come hand in hand. Suffering should be no longer a surprise. Running away from God will not solve your suffering. God can use suffering to reveal God’s glory. We have to embrace the theology of the cross. Out of suffering, God made it beautiful.

This is not a wasted season. God is using it to reveal something for you.

John 9:3

3 “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.

Some of our sufferings is self inflicting. In our time of suffering we can look to Him.

Let’s see Nick Vuyijic.
) is a Serbian Australianevangelist and motivational speaker born with tetra-amelia syndrome, a rare disorder characterized by the absence of all four limbs. As a child, he struggled mentally and emotionally as well as physically, but eventually came to terms with his disability and, at the age of seventeen, started his own non-profit organization, Life Without Limbs. Vujicic presents motivational speeches worldwide, on life with a disability, hope and finding meaning in life. He also speaks about his belief that God can use any willing heart to do his work and that God is big enough to overcome any and all disabilities. – from Wikipedia

In Christ, we can have joy in the midst of our suffering.

Psalm 16:11
You will teach me how to live a holy life.
Being with you will fill me with joy;
at your right hand I will find pleasure forever.

What’s important is your relationship of Christ.

Hebrews 12 : 2

2 Let us look only to Jesus, the One who began our faith and who makes it perfect. He suffered death on the cross. But he accepted the shame as if it were nothing because of the joy that God put before him. And now he is sitting at the right side of God’s throne.

Praise God!  Thank you Lord for revealing this to me.
