"Feel bad, it's okay. But always remember that whatever it is, you can surpass it all. God never leaves us empty handed. He makes sure that when He takes something away from you, may it be something really beautiful or someone really special, He leaves you with something that's more than what He took away. A lesson to keep and remember for a lifetime. "

Parang isang bata, kapag nadapa, Tumayo!!
he is sweet. The warmth of his EMBRACE awaits for us!

Satan , the Fallen Worship Leader *repost

a repost from Kenny of GUITARPRAISE. YFCs and MusicMin please Read! This is very true to us especially to the musicmin. Look forward not to your friends' praises, but to the Lord's delight in you!


The Bible names three angels - Michael, Gabriel, and Lucifer. The last angel is, of course, better known as Satan. Ps 103:20 tells us that angels are "mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word" - each of these angels represent the various ways we serve God.

Michael is known for being an angel of works, putting into action what is needed to help others ("then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me", Dan 10:13). He is also an angel of warfare ("Michael and his angels fought against the dragon", Rev 12:7), and represents the spiritual battles we fight for others in the community. The second angel is Gabriel, who is known for delivering God's Word. Gabriel is most well known for preparing Mary for Jesus' birth (Luke 1:26-38); he was also called to speak to Daniel about a vision (Dan 8:16).

The last (ex)angel, Lucifer, served God in worship, like many of us. I find it quite uncomfortable to be compared with the devil, but the truth is that we we need to keep on our toes against vanity and pride.

Ezekiel 28:12-14 tells us that Lucifer was a beautiful creature:
"You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.. every precious stone adorned you... Your settings and mountings were made of gold; You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones".

In the same way, musicians can look quite good on stage, and do get quite abit of attention from their friends. I do get abit of 'fame' in church, from people recognising (recognising, not admiring!) me from playing the guitar. When I meet friend's friends in church, I'm always introduced as the guy who plays the guitar on stage, like its something cool.

The attention can get to one's head, as was with the devil:
"Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor" (Eze 28:17).

Satan himself has walked down the path of pride, and tempting people into self-glorification could very well be his most powerful weapon against us. After all, it was what led to the first sin and the separation between man and God. As a result, musicians are very exposed to his temptations. We must guard our hearts and minds, and constantly walk down the path of humility. We must also see ourselves not as musicians, or worse, rock stars, but first and foremost servants of the Lord.

***please read this next lines..

Look forward not to your friends' praises, but to the Lord's delight in you. James 4:10 tells us to "humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you". Imagine finally coming before the throne of God - seeing His glory, we prostrate in unworthiness before Him. Yet, God comes to us, brings us back to our feet, and tells us that He is proud of us, for putting Him before our pride. Just as Ps 84:10 writes that "better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere", better is one word of praise from the Lord than to have fame amongst the multitudes.

On a more practical level, here are two tips:

  • The small things matter. There's alot of 'menial' work in the ministry, like hauling amps and mixers around. You might also feel reluctant to serve for smaller services, like prayer meetings. Take up your cross and serve in these areas wholeheartedly.
  • Deflect & avoid attention. Sometimes, my friends say I 'perform' on stage. I usually tell them, light-heartedly of course, that I prefer to use the word 'serving'. Also, don't do anything that gets you too much attention on stage, e.g. running to the front during a guitar solo.
Do drop a comment if you've more to share!


To add - many of you were wondering if its a problem if you jump around etc. out of a sincere heart of worship to the Lord. 1 Sam 16:7 says that "The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart". As the Lord looks at your heart of worship, rest assured your actions are fine.

But you will also need to consider how this affects the congregation. Certain actions, like jumping wildly or bombastic solos, could distract worshippers. 1 Cor 10:32 tells us: "do not cause anyone to stumble". We should abide by this, and ensure that while our hearts might be right with God, we should not be a distraction to others.

Tawag Sakin Hopeful. Hindi Desperado.

Tawag Sakin Hopeful. Hindi Desperado.

Excited lang ako maramdaman ulit yung feeling na yun. Patuloy pa din sa pagdadasal, mas maganda kapag pinagdadasal mo yung taong yun. Syempre, para mas alam ni God, na sincere ka talaga at seryoso. oha. haha.

Isa pa tama yung sinasabi nila na, wag gawing cheap ang love. kasi nga precious yun. kaya bawal chipipoy at chipipay. Basta I will not settle for less, what I mean ayoko na magpadalosdalos o basta lang. nakakasakit kasi yun. boom.

Hindi ko alam, pero baka kilala ko na sya or makikilala ko pa lang. WEE!

Haha. Di ako emo. Hopeful tawag sakin.

I believe, sa kabilang part ng mundo o kabilang city. may nag-ppray din para sakin.

Oo naniniwala ako. Basta, I know the Feeling. Pag TAMA na ang lahat-lahat. Pag alam ko na na yun na, yun na.

in GOD'S time. in GOD's time mga friends.

NADUKUTAN AKO NG CP!!! friends pls read

ayun. totoo yan, yung SAMSUNG E250 ko is already gone.. yeah. sad, cry , die!

FEB 5, 2008
kaninang umaga, papasok ako ng ojt. around 8:12 am, nakikipagsiksikan ako sa mga taong sasakay din ng MRT sa north ave station. sa sobrang dame, parang wowowee stampede.

actualy dapat hindi ako makakasakay kagad ng tren, pero dahil malelate na ako, pinilit ko makapasok. ewan ko nga eh, galing na galing ako sa sarili ko pag-sasakay ako ng MRT. kahit andaming tao na gustong makapasok, still nagagawa kong makapasok. ambilis.

ayun kanina, huling basa ko ng text ni Jeff - classmate ko yung quote nya na corny. tapos tingin na din ng oras sa phone ko, nakagawian ko na yun. Tas yun, yung dumating na yung tren, binulsa ko na sya sa pantalon ko. TApos ayun, nag-SLAMAN na kaming mga sasakay. yung mga babae nagsisigawan kasi naiipit sila.

SOBRANG SIKIP men. andaming katawan ang tumatama sa katawan ko. buong katawan ko ipit sa dami ng tao. sa sobrang bilis ng mga pangyayari,. sakto pagpasok ko ng tren, kinapa ko ang bulsa ko, ayun wala na. HINDI PA AKO MAKAPANIWALA eh. . hindi pa nag-sisink in sa utak ko. feeling ko kasi namisplace ko lang. kaso ayun. wala na.

para na akong basag at wasak the whole day. dinadaan ko na lang sa tawa kapag kinakausap ako ng mga boss ko at mga ka-OJT. nga pala late din ako pagdating ng opis.

bawi naman yung day ko kasi dinalaw na kami ng Adviser namin sa OJT dun sa Megaworld. natuwa naman sya sa feedback nung ininterview nya mga supervisors namin. talagang magaling mag-persuade mga taga AMD ng sabi nya baka mataas daw grade namin!!! saya diba.

tapos, nakabonding ko ulit si Jeff pauwi, dinamayan nya ako sa pagdadalamhati ko sa pagkawala ng CP, ayun. thanks sa time brod. salamat sa masarap na sharing sessions natin. labet


galing lang ni GOD. kala ko my day will end up a mess too. pero yun. haha

----> For the mean time, pag may kailangan kayo sakin, reach me through PM sa FS at multiply. . . paki kalat na lang sa mga iba pa nating Friends., baka lokohin kayo ng may gamit ng number ko. ok!?

YFC LIVELOUD - (i hunger for love)


We had an awesome night of praise and worship!

The songs in the worship are all YFC original compositions. The stage was great - ang SOSYAL talaga, the LIGHTS!, and the songboard, parang Hillsong Concert lang. The band, really rocked the house for God - angganda ng arrangement ng mga songs.

The struggles and victory stories of the sharers and the worship leader made me realize of many things. especially on being part of a band or musicmin.


I HAVE THE SAME STRUGGLE, but I'm unaware of that. everytime i play, the selfcentered ness consumes me. Its my driving force why I play music, Its just for me, it came to the point wherein I do my service so that people may love me and/or like me. I hunger and thirst for LOVE. and that's completely the wrong way.
(parang story lang ni Bo Sanchez sa The Past does not define Your Future)

everything must be returned to God. all that we are, every actions we make, every breathe we take must worship God, after all he's the GREATEST! only Him and for Him. I do not need to please people anymore or for them do the same thing in return, either to like me or love me. kasi BUSOG na ako sa PAGMAMAHAL ng diyos! siya na bahala mag-sukli, kasi sa kanya naman nanggaling ang lahat, at sa kanya ko lang makukuha ang totoong saya at pagmamahal na di mabibigay ng kahit na sino man dito sa mundo!

***NO ONE can stop me playing music for the Lord! wala lang, parang nasagot lang yung mga questions ko kay God this past few days.

yung tipong sa sobrang OK mo, di ka magiging OK. parang ganon. Kasi hindi ko na nakikita si God working in me, kasi OK na eh. tumagal akong ganon, parang wala ng kulay ang buhay.
ngayon KULAYFUL na ulit! ^^

namiss ko mag-blog.GB!
