Ann: A Girl Bigger Than Problems

“In this world ye shall have tribulations, but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33)."

I want to testify about this close friend and colleague of mine. She's a woman of inspiration and of hope. Her name was Ann Brimon, a girl who looks down on problems as if she were standing on a mountain.

I first get in touch with Ann 3 years ago. She was a girl who always smiles and laugh, she never ran out of it as if she had an overflowing source of laughter. She always cracks jokes and laugh around like it's the end of the world. I never saw her sad or crying for real as if she never experience problems in life. She's the total optimistic and she's the happiest of all creature I ever knew.

Behind those tickling laughter and golden smiles she was a girl who is living her life the least and humblest among us friends. She lives in a rented shack which I think is just the size of our dining area, she had no brothers or sisters, and her mother died 3 years ago. She makes living through encoding on a shipping company and providesalong with the help of her aunt, for her father who had a lung disease and is incapable of working . Just around this September, her father fell worse in sickness and needed to be confined on the Lung Center for treatment. Everyday, her father's sickness got worse until her father loses hope. It was October 3, 2011 when her father died and she needed to pay for the bills that cost around 300,000 pesos. On that day, I called her on the phone and it was the first time I heard her cry. I felt grief and cried along with her voice on the phone. I then visited her father's wake (burol) the other day after the phone call. As I remember, all she do is smile, I cried but she still smile and laugh. It's like nothing happened at all. I knew on her heart she was happy because her father's struggle ended in peace but this is very unusual for a person who is left alone on her own at a young age of 23. I can tell you that I feel sadder than Ann when I saw her but she just made fun of it and she said to me that she already moved on about the incident yet I, just a friend, was more grieved than her.

She smiles a lot because she knows that everything was already conquered for her as said on the verse above. She realizes her blessings more than she acknowledges problems. She knows her standing with God and knows that she had friends that she can call brothers and sisters and that she knows she's not alone. Most of us can't realize these things. We always acknowledge problems more than realizing our blessings. We often think that we're alone when there's a God who always watch and is ever ready to help. A little problem often makes us upset and look grumpy all the time. Always think that there is a God who overcame everything for us and all we have to do is believe, acknowledge and rely on His power along with our efforts. Smile always because there is a God who gives you joy in the midst of tribulation and you know that He will never leave you nor forsake you and that problems are not your own. Let the life of our sister Ann be an encouraging inspiration to all of us.

[MusicDose] Break Open the Sky - Toby Mac (ft. Israel Houghton)

Here's a very nice song from TobyMac. This song makes me excited to see Jesus come again. Enjoy listening and be inspired. ☺

Break Open the Sky Lyrics

From the lips of desperation
Different nations, every man's cry
Comes a song of anticipation
As we wait for a crack in the sky
Side by side, we recognize that
Hope has brought us together tonight
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Break open the sky
Won't You turn off gravity so we can fly?
We wanna see Your face
So tear the roof off this place
Jesus, break open the sky

So we sing
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

We believe, and we imagine
'Til the dawn of our beautiful dream
Through the noise, I hear the voices
Melodies that are flooding our streets
Not forgotten, are your people
So let a thousand church bells ring
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Come, Jesus, come
Come quickly
Come quickly

Break open, open the sky

Philippines Should Vote "NO" On Palestinian UN Vote (Israel's Partition for Palestine)

The Philippines is a nation of believers who accept Scriptures as Truth. Hence, a complete and correct perspective of the issues around the land of Israel goes beyond the purely secular, diplomatic, and political to include the scriptural.
The votation in the UN for a Palestinian state is a God-given opportunity for our nation to vote for or against God`s expressed will and purpose.
The Jews as a people are unique in that God chose them as His own treasure among all peoples and tongues. The Land of Israel is likewise uniquely chosen, unconditionally and irrevocably promised by God as an eternal possession to Abraham and to his descendants through Isaac, and to the Israelites through Jacob [Israel], Abraham`s grandson.
  • Genesis 15: 18
    In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates...
  • Genesis 17:7-8
    I will give you and your descendants after you the land in which you are now foreigners, all the land of Canaan, as a permanent possession.
  • Genesis 35:10-12
    God said to him...`Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel shall be your name...And the land that I gave to Abraham and to Isaac, I will give to you and to your seed after you will I give the land.’
Jerusalem, in particular, is the city God Himself chose for His name to dwell.
  • 2 Chronicles 6:5-6
    ...but I have chosen Jerusalem that My name might be there...
  • Psalm 132:13-14
    For Adonai has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation. This is my resting place forever and ever, here I will dwell, for I have desired it.
  • Psalm 122:6
    Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May they prosper who love you.
Those nations that choose to go against Israel or to divide God’s land do so at their own peril, opening up their nations to God’s fierce judgment in the form of all kinds of disasters.
  • Zechariah 12:2-3; 9
    This is the message from the Lord, the Lord who spread out the skies, created the earth, and gave life to man. He says, "I will make Jerusalem like a cup of poison; the nations around her will drink and stagger like drunks. And when they besiege Jerusalem...I will make Jerusalem like a heavy stone...Any nation that tries to lift it will be hurt.
  • Zechariah 12:9
    When that day comes, I will seek to destroy all nations attacking Jerusalem.
  • Isaiah 60:12
    For the nation or kingdom that will not serve you (Israel) will perish; it will be utterly ruined.
  • Joel 3:2
    I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgment against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.
Filipinos, as a people, “invested” in the kingdom of God when the Philippines supported the Jews during critical moments in their beleaguered history, and then in 1958, signed a treaty of friendship with the State of Israel.
  • In 1939, the Philippines was the only country in Asia to open its doors to Jews fleeing the Holocaust in Europe. As part of his Open Doors Policy, then President Manuel L. Quezon issued 10,000 visas for Jewish refugees, established a housing community for them in Marikina, and even donated a large portion of his personal estate in Mindanao for a farm settlement for them.
  • On November 29, 1947, the Philippines was the only Asian country to cast a “Yes” vote to approve UN Resolution 181 creating the State of Israel.
  • President Carlos Garcia signed a Treaty of Friendship between Israel and the Philippines in 1958.
  • We do not want to lose our standing with the God of Israel and find ourselves instead on a collision course with His expressed will and purpose.
Let us be forewarned: The Philippines was a signatory to the nowretracted Goldstone Report, which condemned Israel for alleged war crimes in Gaza. The United Nations released the report on September 15, 2009. Exactly nine (9) days later, on September 24, 2009, Super-Typhoon Ondoy struck the Philippines with horrific devastating force that left almost the entire country staggering and reeling with hundreds dead and missing, entire towns of people homeless, and billions of pesos lost in infrastructure and property damages. In Hebrew Gematria, the number 9 represents judgment.
Regarding His people, Israel, God declares in His Word both a blessing and a curse that we would do well to heed: “And I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Genesis 12:3).

[MusicDose] God in Me - Mary Mary (feat. Kierra Kiki Sheard)

I just wanna tell the truth man [4x]

[Verse 1:]
Your so fly your so high
Everbody around you trying to figure out why
Your so cool you win all the time
Everywhere you go man you get alot of shine
Boy like a magnet better yet I have it
Everything you wear people say they got have it
From the sweat suit to the white tee to the gucci
You can probably say people wanna get like me

But what they don't know is when you go home
and get behind closed doors man you hit the floor
and what they can't see is your on your knees
So the next time you get it just tell em

It's the God in me [5x]
you think I'm so fresh you think I'm so clean
You think I'm so sweet It's the God in me
What is it, you think you see?
It's the God in Me

[Verse 2:]
You see her style you think she nice
you look at her whip you say the whip tight
You look at her crib you thinkin she paid
you look at her life you think she's got it made
but everything she got the girl's been given
She calls it a blessing but you call it living
When it comes to money she can be a hero
She writes them checks with a whole lot of zeros

But what you don't know is when she get home
and get behind closed doors man she hit the floor
and what you can't see is she on her knees
And if you ask her she'll tell ya

It's the God in me [5x]
you think I'm so fresh you think I'm so clean
You think I'm so sweet It's the God in me
What is it, you think you see?
It's the God in Me

What is it you think you see
when you see me, you see me
You don't know how much I pray
don't know how much I gave
don't know how much I changed
I'm just tryna explain

It's the God in me [5x]
you think I'm so fresh you think I'm so clean
You think I'm so sweet It's the God in me
What is it you think you see? Its The God in Me

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah Its the God in Me Yeeah.

[MusicDose] Find You Waiting - Decemberadio

From this day onward I'll be posting MusicDose posts. Tonight I'll share with you this inspiring song from Decemberadio. Very beautiful and inspiring song.

I've heard the angels and I've seen the devil 
Fought with the lion, sent through the fire 
I've been in the valley when it was dry 
Walked through the desert to the other side 

I'm not a preacher and I'm not a hero 
My life has never been that kind 
But there is one thing that I hold onto 
I am yours, and Lord you are mine 

And through all these years You have been there 
Dried all my tears and answered my prayers 
I just want to feel your presence again 
I'm down on my knees in need a friend 
And I find you waiting there for me 

I've seen a widow cry through her sorrow 
And still raise her hands in the midst of it all 
And Lord I'm reminded that when I was weary 
You carried me, yes you carried me 

And through all these years You have been there 
Dried all my tears and answered my prayers 
I just want to feel your presence again 
I'm down on my knees in need of a friend 
And I find you waiting there..... 

In the midst of a struggle 
There is one thing I know 
You'll never leave me, you'll never let go 
I've heard the angels and I've seen the devil 
Fought with the lion, sent straight through the fire 

And through all these years You have been there 
Dried all my tears and answered my prayers 
I just want to feel your presence again 
I'm down on my knees in need of a friend 
And I find you waiting 
And I find you waiting there for me 

Waiting, I find you waiting there
