Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path) is on its 32nd and still thriving

The religious program, Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path) has celebrated its 32nd year anniversary yesterday, November 4, 2012. A Worldwide Bible Exposition was held as a part of its anniversary special. Also, the supporters and viewers of Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path) have greeted it via twitter and on facebook using the hash tag, #ADDat32 which has been one of the trending topics on that day and as of today, November 5, 2012.

As expected during the Worldwide Bible Exposition that was held, many have been enlightened on the question and answer portion that is usually one of the highlights of the event. The inquirers come from many parts of the world, with Bro. Daniel Razon as the co-host and Bro. Eli Soriano as the main host who answers the questions straight from the Bible.

May GOD continue to bless Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon and the Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path).

An Open Letter to the GOD Almighty

Dear GOD,

I know everyday is a good day to you and I thank YOU for sharing another good day of YOURS.

For so many years now since YOU brought my brother in this world, YOU have showered him with YOUR love.  In every milestone that he has in HIS life, I know YOU have made it possible. In every achievements that he has, I know YOU are behind of all it.

Today, just like every special moments in our lives, we are Thankful to YOU O GOD that you have made this day possible for me, my parents and specially for my brother.

Thank YOU GOD for guiding my brother while he was still studying in school. Now that HE has graduated from the academic school, may YOU still guide, teach, him and shower him with lots of love that HE needs.

All praises, thanks and glory are to YOU our LORD forever and ever!

Respectfully yours,

amaris
YOUR worthless servant

Thanks be to GOD who causes the lips to say “Thanks!”

Thanks be to GOD for another 3 months that HE allowed me to stay inside HIS home. Outside, I know I will never ever feel the happiness that i feel everyday and the inner peace that i have knowing that HIS eyes are on the people that HE cares for.

Thanks be to GOD for the wonderful blessings that HE gave me. Until now, because of HIS grace and mercy, the blessings that HE gave me are still in my hands. Although i’m unworthy to receive the blessings,  still HE gave it and HE continuously shower me and my loved ones with the gifts coming from above from HIM with love.

Thanks be to GOD for the forgiveness and mercy that HE gave me and to my loved ones and for the understanding and compassion for HIS people that never cease.

One Fateful Day

Over the years of my existence here on earth, there are so many things that already happened to my life. Some made me feel sad, frustrated, pain and some almost break me into million pieces. But on the other hand, some of the experience and events that happened to my life made me happy, beautiful, terrified and amazed.  But among all of the experience and events that I had, there is one thing, the only thing that is very remarkable, the very one thing that changed me, made me a better person. And that was the time that I came to know my creator, our GOD Almighty.

Knowing HIM made my life so beautiful and wonderful everyday. HE has shown me HIS light and gave me hope that no matter how hard my life here on earth, there is a better life that is to come and that is the eternal life with HIM in heaven. In there, there will be no sufferings, tears, sadness and fear just everlasting joy and blissful life.

As of now, since I am still on earth, sojourning, preparing for eternal life that will come GOD willing, I know I need to be patient and hopeful that even though things will sometimes be very hard, there is GOD who will help me get through all the problems and obstacles that I will encounter every single day in life.

I feel so lucky that even though I am just a worthless person in this world, HE chose me as one of the candidates to salvation to enjoy the eternal life with HIM in the heavens above.

In every thing, Thanks and glory be to GOD

Happy year!

The year 2010 is slowly coming to an end and GOD willing, another year will commence. I guess writing this year end entry on my blog is not too early; it might be just in time. For i myself do not know what tomorrow will bring. I do not know if i am still alive, i maybe in the state of coma or i may be dead tomorrow or few hours from now. But be that as it may, i am thankful to GOD that HE has given me opportunity to exist in this world and that is tantamount of giving me a chance to live with HIM in eternity. I feel fortunate that GOD has given me a wonderful life and for teaching me how to live the life that HE gave me in accordance to HIS will. I admit that i am not perfect, i have done so many mistakes, and yes, few regrets, i have. On the other hand however, i still feel that i am blessed with so many things in life. Even though that my life is not an ideal one for most people, but i can say and inside my heart i can feel that what i have is all that i need and what i really deserve i.e – the best. As what Bro. Eli has said, GOD has given us the best that we deserve.

Often times, people keep on whining and cursing their lives away, feeling that they are being forsaken by GOD. They always blame GOD for all the chaos, catastrophe, problems and hardships that they encounter in their lives, but little did they realize that amidst of those unbearable and not-so-ideal things in their lives, GOD was there helping them carry their burdens and helping them to survive their daily lives no matter how stubborn and bad they may be.  

Based on what i have learned, in some cases people are living miserably because they forget about GOD. They neglect GOD’s calling and most of the time, they take GOD for granted.  

We are not and we will never be in the position  to blame GOD for whatever unwanted things that happen in our lives, we should be thankful instead, that despite of our mischievousness and bad attitudes , HE is always there, sustaining our basic needs to survive everyday. One of the best things that i have learned from Bro. Eli is that “Seek God first and you will have the best in life.” This also is in agreement with what Apostle Matthew said in the Holy Scripture in Matthew 6:33 (King James version) that says;

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

I am very glad that i got to learn these things before this year ends. GOD willing hopefully there will be more things that i will learn next year if GOD permits.

2 Corinthians 9:15 (King James Version)

Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.

I myself do not know what’s in store for me next year, year 2011, GOD willing but whatever it is, i should always be reminded of what is written in the book of Romans 8:28 (King James version) that says;  

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

For everything, Thanks and glory be to GOD
