FourRightChords The Dream
I passed my board exam. I was standing just there and knew I passed. SOBRANG saya ko. I felt triumphant and overwhelmed. I felt fulfilled. I felt vindicated as well from all the hardships and bumps I had to go through just to pass. And then, I looked back and saw my parents, family, my friends. I saw them smiling. I saw them happy and overwhelmed with joy as well. It has been my dream to make and keep them smiling . It was the best feeling in the world. I felt accomplished.
and then I woke up
Sabi ko na nga ba e! panaginip lang! ayos! sarap ng pakiramdam. I want that! gusto ko yan sabi ko. I decided to go back to sleep and true enough few minutes, I was back in the same place, with the same feeling with the same result. Pasado ako. I wanna live here. I want to be here.
Then na realised ko, this is just a dream. Kahit among mangyari, gigising at gigising ako (unless na I die which is of course ayaw ko naman un=p). But it dawned on me, bakit hindi ko gawin into... (more)
... By grace you have been saved -- and raised us up with
Him and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in
Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages He might show
the immeasurable riches of His grace in kindness toward
us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved
through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift
of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for
good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we
should walk in them. Ephesians 2:5b-10

As is true for most high schools, Thornton recently had
its commencement service. As you might expect,
Thornton's graduation was a time of excitement and joy.
There was a blend of emotions. For the students there
was an eagerness to get to the future, an eagerness that
was balanced out by a sadness at saying farewell to old
friends and pleasant memories.
This year Thornton's... (more)

Muslim Teenagers Sadiq Gill - Strategies for Motivating Teenagers
Victor UsifoThere are different phases of growth in an individual's life and
because teenagers are human beings, they are no exceptions to the rule.
During this period of physical development of the body, teenagers are
irritable and unruly and parents find them hard to manage.At this
crucial time of their lives, parents worry about their children's
welfare and future prospects. It is okay to be concerned. But being
worried does not solve any problems. In the alternative, parents should
make an effort to find out how to motivate these teenagers, instead of
just hoping that all would be well someday.To rectify this
unhealthy situation, I urge parents to follow these reliable strategies
for motivating teenagers. They include: getting information, learning
from counselors and being more understanding. The other factors are;
being patient, developing effective communication skills, praying and
having faith.Let's clarify how these strategies could... (more)
Daily Devotion God's Counsel Stands
Date: Tuesday, August 04, 2015 Chapters: Isaiah 43-46 Message Title: God's Counsel Stands Hello My Friend, How often do we face some kind of affliction and after a while start to question why God allows these things in the first place? Pretty often I believe. We all have these expectations, even after we are saved, but sometimes they are far from what we tend to get. God gives us the life that He wants us to have, we may not understand how and why He puts us where He has us, but we can understand that he has a great purpose for it, even if it is something so tragic that we cannot fathom why He allowed it in the first place. Affliction of any kind brings us closer to God, and brings others to Him as well. “Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: I...
