JUNNEL!!! ITS YOUR TUMBLR URL!!! :))))
Hi Anon. Sorry just got to reply to your message. It’s amazing that the day you asked this, was the day I too struggled with past mistakes. I know how hard it is to let go and move on… but at the end of the day it is always a choice.
Usually what helps me move on from the past is to ask for forgiveness to those i’ve hurt. To God, and to the concerned persons. Sometimes it’s a bit shameful to even talk about the mistake (Especially if they don’t know about it) but it frees us from the weight of guilt.
Also the truth of the matter is you’re forgiven and loved. all our past mistakes have been forgiven by God. Now the problem is if we will forgive ourselves. The enemy will constantly try to bring u down by reminding us of our past, but we can fight back by reminding him of his future. At the end of the day, God has forgiven us and we are new creations in Him and we can start over-fresh slate and all.
Also we can’t really move backwards and turn back time. So that leaves us with one and only one option. To MOVE FORWARD. Moving forward is a choice. and it will be a choice we will HAVE to make EVERY SINGLE DAY. When the past haunts, we have to choose to let the past live in the past and keep moving forward.
And yes it will be difficult at times, but always remember you have Jesus with you. He will be your strength to carry on, even in our darkest moments. That’s how amazing His grace is.
So let us rejoice that in Christ we are new creations. The old has gone, the new has come. -2 Corinthians 5:17
Hi Isa! Good question.
One can not lose this salvation. Hebrews 13:5 ” Never will I [Jesus] leave you nor forsake you.”
Matthew 7:16 “By their fruits you shall know them.”
Our works do not save us, cause salvation is by grace through faith in Christ. Salvation is not all about us receiving blessings, but it also includes sincere repentance. If one truly wants to follow Christ he or she would be willing to let go of the wrong ways.
Supposedly one was really sincere and did accept Christ—-but backslid or got lost along the way…well no, they do not lose their salvation. However the rewards in heaven will not be the same as those who lived according to what God had intended. :) It’s like the parable of the talents :)
One of the nicest comments of the day:
Ms. Kelly (my Events Manager): What’s your religion?
Me: Oh I’m a Born-Again Christian
Ms Kelly: Ah no wonder you’re such a nice person.
/// and by religion i mean lifestyle of constant relationship with God ;) not the rituals ///
je parle en français en peu
few things that make me feel warm and fuzzy 1) sunsets 2) christmas 3) Paris <3
This is what i look like with full bangs. I wanna full-bangs myself!!! haha but i doubt they’ll let me at work. coz it doesn’t look professional. The Sales and Marketing Division is pretty strict with appearance and all. haha. oh well.
*note those chubby cheeks* gotta lay off that buffet everyday. Did you know that in Shangri-La our cafeteria is buffet style. In Makati Shangri-La we have the 1st station serves 2 kinds of rice, 3 meals, then a salad station, then another station that serves pasta, and 3 more meals, then a soup station, then a carving station, then a bread station, and lastly the drink station that has water, juice, coffee and tea. hahaha. so if i gain weight, blame it on the employee meal. :))) haha. I seriously need to get back to my M-100 exercise routine.
After coming from work where clients can be so pushy, and being nice is a rare thing—-you begin to appreciate the smallest thank you :) haha. Work is fun don’t get me wrong, but there are just those days!!!! HAHAHA
Hopefully I can stat writing and posting stuff more often. Do pray for me, i’m fighting sore throat and i feel like i’m gonna get really sick soon. Thanks :) and i love you for following me after all this time :”)
In Christ there is freedom. Freedom to truly live.
Sometimes we forget that the power of God’s love has broken the chains that used to bind us. Sin no longer has any hold on us. Our past no longer has control. Because God makes all things new, we also become new creations——creations that are now free.
This is an important reminder for every believer that our past no longer dictates our future :)
