2017 WORD

Ordinary Ways

The verse that the Lord is telling us for this year.

Ephesians 3:20-21

New International Version
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

New Living Translation
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.

English Standard Version
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever…

Year-Ender Choices

Ordinary Ways


Above choices are my choices for a year-end run. 🙂 It’s not the usual this time. If God is willing!

Of course, the usual is Luneta to Tagaytay’s Mahogany for the best bulalo! Or I’ll just go speed running in an oval for a couple of hours!

Our God, our Father

Ordinary Ways

Being a Christian means living our life in Christ. It is all about Hearing the good news, Believing in Christ, Receiving Him as our Lord, and Saviour, Repenting of our sins, Confessing, and Being Baptized. But how can anyone know of the good news if no one is proclaiming? How can anyone receive someone they cannot believe? What will they repent of when they have no idea that they even have committed a sin? Before the Son, the Father. But they are one and they have always been together since the beginning. Jesus, the Son of the living God is the personification of God himself. Let us explore the wondrous things about our God.

God is OUR CREATOR, our great and powerful God!


He is the source of all wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Who can reason with Him?

Trust in God

Ordinary Ways

We all have issues. Everybody faces different kinds of problems. Varied trials tests even the toughest. We are on equal footing when it comes to this. The big difference lies on who we put our trust to when trials come, and when we are faced with a very big problem.

Psalm 62:8 International Standard Version
People, in every situation put your trust in God; pour out your heart before him; for God is a refuge for us.

God is a refuge for us. A refuge is something that provides shelter. A protected place. No need to explain further since we already understood this.  No matter what we believe, God is the same. No matter our situation, He is our refuge. But God is more than just a refuge.


The following Psalms are great references for the many things God is. And this is just but a few. The Book of…

Difficult is Relative

Ordinary Ways

This is a very informal writing. 🙂

Yes, difficult is very relative.

For a new runner, even a 3-km run is already too hard – difficult. However, to some new ones, the same distance could be easy – in terms of distance and pacing.

For a new climber, (here we go!) a minor climb can be very difficult. Again, difficult is very relative. The difficulty may be due to the long distance, or the technicality of the trail, or the terrain, the elevation to the summit, or a little of all.

Wait, Mt. Paliparan may be a Minor Climb, yes…but the trail going back via TungTong Falls? nah…its definitely not difficult – it’s dangerous and deadly!

I’d strongly advise anyone against doing this climb / trail for the first time. Not that I’d like to deny you of the experience, but that I want to ask you something first. Are…

On Lacking Nothing.

Oh yes! I am a Christian!

Ordinary Ways

Nobody, I’m sure, would want to be lacking anything. Nobody would want to be needing something and have such need remain unmet. Paraphrasing further, I’m sure without a tinge of doubt, that nobody would want to be constantly begging for something.

Simply put, to not lack something, one needs to be in abundance. 🙂 Sounds funny but true. To be in abundance, one must be prosperous, or is it vice versa?

Our God is a generous God. He gives, not just forgive. He prospers us. He make us abundant and He alone can put us in that state of ‘LACKING NOTHING.’

See the following scriptures:

James 1:5
New International Version
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

New Living Translation
If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it…
