Hello beloved! :D My name is Elle, 20, from the Philippines. I believe, "I am God's masterpiece still under His construction."
June 26, 2013 was the day that I have faithfully surrendered my life to God. And since that moment on, God has been doing amazing wonders in my life! :D I believe He's doing all the same with you! :D He has amazing plans for you, and He is still about to do GREATER THINGS ON YOUR JOURNEY! :D Your faith in Jesus, and the acceptance of Him in your heart is just the beginning. of everything! :D
I pray that this blog may serve as His means for you to be closer to Him and be blessed and reminded of how much He loves you. And that whatever you are going through, for as long as YOU ARE WITH HIM, nothing will ever be IMPOSSIBLE! :D ♥ May you seek Him in all ways and may you live a wonderful life with Him! :D ♥ GOD BLESS YOU! :D ♥
First of all sorry if it took a long time for me to reply :( I hope yung sagot ko hindi pa masyadong late :)))))
Anyways here we go, I too have been in the same situation as yours. There was a time na bigla ko nalang yang naisip, but I knew it wasn’t from me. I knew the enemy was just trying to deceive me. Alam mo kasi yung kaaway, masyado yang deceitful, mapangloko at sinungaling. Gagawin ang lahat in order for us to doubt God, gagawin ang lahat macondemn lang natin ang sarili natin. Gagawin ang lahat ng means, ng kasinungalingan mapalayo lang tayo kay God. Kasi nung nangyari yan sakin non kinondemn ko yung sarili ko, nafeel ko sobrang sama ko para maisip yun at nahiya na akong kausapin Siya kasi feeling ko ang sama sama ko. Napalayo ako sa Kanya which is dapat hindi ko hinayaang mangyari. That’s when I have no knowledge before na hindi pala galing sakin yun. Akala ko ako yung nakakaisip na dinadoubt ko si God, but it was only lately that I have realized na hindi pala galing yung thought na yon sa isip ko, galing pala sa kaaway trying to deceive me na inisip ko yun pero siya pala yung nagbulong at nagtempt sa akin. As Christians and as children of God we will never ever deny the existence of our Father, anak Niya tayo eh. ALAM NATING TOTOO SIYA. ALAM NATING NAG-EEXIST SIYA. Pero bakit bigla nalang nating maiisip yun? Anong point if in the first place we know that He exists. It’s because HINDI TAYO ANG NAKAISIP, means ng kaaway yung pagbulong na yun para mafeel bad tayo sa sarili natin, para icondemn natin yung sarili natin "It was only the enemy’s means for you to feel bad about yourself and to lead you far away from God."
Whenever thoughts like that enter into my mind I just pray beloved na tanggalin Niya lahat yun at wag nang mapenetrate ang utak ko ng kahit na anong thoughts which I know are not from me. And praise God dahil sinasagot ni God yung prayer kong yun. Do the same beloved, kapag nakakaisip ka ng ganun magpray ka na tanggalin Niya yun sa isip mo at wag Niyang hayaang magpenetrate ang kaaway sa isip mo. PRAYERS are our greatest weapons against the enemy.
I need you to do three things for me kung mangyayari ulit yan. One, Do not condemn yourself, that thought was not from you. HINDI IKAW ANG NAKAISIP NUN. Two, Pray that God will take away any negative thought sa isip mo and pray na hindi makapagpenetrate ang kaaway sa mind mo. And three, Keep your mind busy always for an empty mind is the devil’s workshop. And don’t forget your devotions as well. It will keep you spiritually strong.
Ayun lang dear, I hope this helped. Thank you for dropping your concern sakin and for trusting me. If you have problems I’m just one ASK away okay? :* <3 Keep your faith in Him and keep seeking Him! GOD LOVES YOU SO MUCH! :* <3

Hello beloved :D First of all I would like to thank you for leaving me your message :D I reckon that I was able to make that art out of a typography that I was able to browse on my dashboard, and I also remembered looking up for the verse on google just to check if the verse is correct and found that it doesn’t say that at all. But I still decided to continue doing that art because I thought that maybe it was the interpretation for the whole bible verse itself. I thought it was the meaning or the message that the verse wanted to portray.
I searched for it on biblegateway just now and checked for its “The Message” translation and it says :
”God, pick up the pieces.
Put me back together again.
You are my praise!” Jeremiah 17:14 (MSG)
If you want to view the verse and read up to verse 18 click here
I believe that’s where that quote came from. It came from its The Message Bible Translation. I really do appreciate your help beloved as I deem that you are concerned of the people who might be able to view that art or post :D And I absolutely thank you for that! <3 I believe it would be better if I publish this post to serve as means for people who also might be having the same doubt as yours with the verse or quote that I posted on my art :D You were absolutely God’s means! :D Thank you beloved!
Keep your faith in Him! :D <3 Stay blessed! :* <3
My dearly beloved,
First of all it is true that we all have spiritual gifts to give glory and praise to Him :D Pero it is not written that only through these will we be able to bring glory upon Him. You said, you love singing and doodling, alam mo ba that when you do anything for God, that already gives glory to Him? Yung simpleng pagkanta mo, when you offer it to the Lord and when you sing for Him that already gives glory to Him. Yung simple doodle art mo, when you say, “Lord, para sayo to” that already gives glory to Him. Even yung simple report mo for example sa school, when you offer it and do it for the Lord that already gives glory to Him. Yung simpleng paghinga mo para sa Kanya, yung simpleng pag tell mo of others of the gospel, of Jesus, how He has saved us, yung simple desire mo to bring people closer to Him that too, gives glory to God. Kahit simpleng bagay lang na gawin mo, basta’t ginagawa mo para sa Kanya, gives glory to Him. YOU MAY NOT FEEL IT LIKE YOU’RE DOING ANYTHING TO GLORIFY HIM, YOU MAY NOT SEE IT EXACTLY, but God sees every single act you do for Him. God delights in it, It glorifies Him when you do things for Him.
As it is written, “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31
See, kahit pag inom ng tubig, at pag kain mo ng agahan o hapunan, can bring glory to God. God doesn’t ask for SOMETHING BIG for you to do for Him. Kasi kahit simpleng bagay lang na nagagawa mo for Him, He appreciates all that. “You can give glory to God in every little thing you do, for as long as you do it for Him.”
PRAY that God will reveal your ministry and your spiritual gift. You will know that in time, and that way, you can bring greater glory for Him. But always remember, kahit hindi mo pa alam yung spiritual gift mo ngayon you are already giving glory to Him, mas malaking pag-gloglorify nalang ang mabibigay mo once you already know of your spiritual gift :D
Pray dear okay? He’ll reveal it to you in His perfect time. Just maintain most importantly your relationship with Him. When you’re sad, you can always call up to Him, and I as well am here for you. :D
God loves you so much beloved! BLESSINGS!! :* <3
P.S Be happy!
