Love is a Spiritual Agent

Definition of Love

(Originally published at WriteforACause.Org)

Love is a spiritual agent in which science could not perfectly explain. And because God is not science, nor limited to science, the perfect explanation is then found in Him, and in Him alone. If you seek it through Him, love will be known to you.

Love is not a scientific theory, nor is it a chemical fluid that supplements our body or brain. Love is more than science, and it is far greater than science. It is more than a feeling, it is more than an emotion. Love exceeds that of a sentiment, because it accompanies commitment and servitude. It is not just a feeling; it is a character, an attitude, and even more than that.

The definition of love varies in terms of field and interest. Even psychology could not entirely grasp its entirety. Science could not perfectly define love, and until now people keep on debating as to why humans have such thing under their skins.

“…..human love is tough to study with the tools of science. For one thing, our definition of “love” is complex. You might love your child, your cocker spaniel, milk chocolate and the first snow of the season – each in a different way.” — The Chemistry of Love

Don’t Cry For Me

(Originally published at WriteforACause.Org)

I pray to the Lord that all my thoughts and even my heart will be filled with Him—Jesus. I want to think of Him every day and night, so that my soul will be filled with His unconditional love, and not be bothered by the earthly concerns. I don’t know what tomorrow will bring. And I don’t know what will happen later. Things happen when you least expect. Right now, I’m alive and that alone is a blessing.

for the love of GodI owe my every breath to God. Four years ago, I could have died due to a severe asthma attack. But God let me live for another four years, you see. I am truthfully thankful because within those years I was able to accept Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and Lord. I am thankful to God because He let me live in order for me to know Him more. I couldn’t wish for more. I must say, however, that four years were not enough to understand the greatness of our God. It’s not enough to study His word and it’s not enough to pay what He has done to my life. In fact, a lifetime of a healthy life is not enough. The greatness of our God is too vast and wide that no human being could try to fathom it.

I’m writing all these because the Lord has been good to me ever since I was born, in fact, I was still in my mother’s womb and He has been good to me. I’m writing this because I want my family to know that there is nothing to worry about. Whatever happens to me there is nothing to worry about. I want them to know that even if I die now, they must not cry for me. No, please don’t cry for me. Death is not to be feared of, if I happen to embrace mine, please don’t be sad. Especially to my father. I love you all.

And I also want you to know, whoever you are, that there’s nothing to worry about with your personal struggle because God is with you. You just have to be sensitive to His presence.

The Thing You Really Love is Sometimes the Thing You Have to Give Up

Written by: Jenine Silos

I like my hair. In fact, I love it. It is long, straight, and dark. It has never tasted strong chemicals from saloons, except for hot oil. But hot oil is not a strong chemical. My hair is just naturally straight and smooth. Many compliment my hair.They like it, too, just the way how I like it.
It took me one year to have grown my hair long. In many months I have combed it almost every night, so that it will grow fast. That was it until two days ago.

Because I cut my hair.

I still like it but not the way I like it when it was still long. It is now short, sort of bouncy, and dark. It is still straight but short. One of a woman’s treasures is her hair. But why would a woman like me, me who like my long hair so much, would cut my hair short??? For new looks? New style? Just to get attention? Certainly NO! Because I love my long hair, and in fact, I don’t plan to cut it until I get married! Yes, I’m serious about it.

So why, oh why, did I cut it short?

It happened two days ago. After our midweek service, I was with my church friends and we fellowship to one another. When suddenly I asked my two brothers in Christ out of joke, just to see their reaction or opinion about it, “What do you think if I cut my hair short?”

And they immediately replied, “Of course, NO. Definitely not.”

I said, “Why should I not cut it?” I don’t plan to cut it short, but I plan to cut just the ends of my hair, but I asked them anyway.

“Because you already look fine with that hair. You don’t have to cut it. It’s long and it’s nice.” They answered.

Out of the blue, our cell leader, Ate Ann, went to us and she was staring at me seriously. And said, “How about you cut it short, Neen?”

“No~ Ate Ann, I like it long.” I immediately replied.

“Why not try it? I want to see some changes in your face. I think short hair will make you look younger.” She said.

“No, Ate Ann. I have a rounded face, short hair will make it look rounder, I tell you.” I honestly said, my voice pleading for her to change her mind.

She looked at me, and I was like, uh-ohhh, “No, Jenine. I want you to cut your hair. And I want to see the changes this Sunday.”

“This Sunday?” I almost shouted. “But Ate Ann…Cutting it short and that fast…oh please.” I turned to look at Jan Lord and Juffet, then Jan Lord said, “Yeah, that’s it. You have to cut it short, Neen.”

And I was like, what?

The Worst Incurable Illness

The Worst Incurable Illness

The Worst Incurable Illness

…is the Refusal to Accept the Truth

Written by: Jenine Silos

Ever since the first man and woman, Adam and Eve, committed a sin against God, all men since then fall short to sin and all creatures are bound to go the way of all the earth that is death. Many kinds of diseases and illness have emerged upon the earth, targeting humans and even the animals, not one is exempted. Why is that? Because we fall short to sin. And the wages of sin is death. (Romans 6:23)

As the world advances in its technology, while people aim for more knowledge and fleshly recognition, the wickedness of men has also escalated, and it now seemed to be normal despite its absolute contrary to the will of God.

According to the research of ListVerse.Com, there are top 10 incurable diseases that are afflicting across the globe, these are the following:

1. The Common Cold

2. Cancer

3. Asthma

4. HIV/Aids

5. Diabetes

6. Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease

7. Influenza

8. Lupus Erythematosus

9. Polio

10. Ebola

(You can browse here to see more details about these diseases)

Until now, there are no devised medicines or permanent cure for these diseases despite the relentless efforts of the scholastic medicine scholars. This, however, is one of the mysteries that only the intelligent designer can ever solve: God, the creator of all things. The knowledge and wisdom of humans are limited, even the renown geniuses have their own limits, but unlike humans, the God of all things does not have limits. He sets his own limits and rules. And He alone can do that.

God can cure your asthma with just a flick of his finger, this is a remarkable works of God that we humans could not fathom no matter how advanced our technology is. God works in inexplicable ways that even the most intelligent psychologist in the world could not psycho it.

As an asthma patient before, I could say that having this kind of illness is the most untreatable one, terrible you may add. My brother, who is a nurse, often tells me that there is really no cure for it. Once he said, “Even if it (the asthma) stops bothering you now, it will still occur in your later life, which is when you are old. Asthma is a treacherous disease. ”

They say that these diseases are incurable, while some others say that only the miracles of God is the only cure. But I say that it is God’s grace that cures a hopeless illness.

An Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia, has also no cure for it and it is the most terrible disease that I could think of other than asthma. Because it worsens as it progresses, and eventually leads to death. Having Alzheimer’s disease is the most tormenting illness if I were to say, because besides the fact that it’s untreatable, it slowly kills the memory of the affected person until he reaches death—tormenting not only his self but also the people who love him. An affected person of this illness will have mood swings, trouble in language even to the point that they forget what the meaning of every word they say is, and they slowly forget those people around them, including their names. They withdraw from their family and society, and gradually, their bodily functions are lost, ultimately leading to death. So what could be worse than this? Aren’t they any? There is. Know what as we go further.

To unbeliever’s point of view, Alzheimer’s disease, or any from those diseases mentioned above, is the most terrible illness you could have ever gotten. If you happen to acquire any of them, you would probably say:

“It’s hopeless from today onwards. I’d die soon, anyway.”

“I’m sick. And I’m sick of getting sick.”

“It’s the worst, why of all people, it’s me?”

“I’m just a burden.”

I might sound harsh but, I tell you, yeah, you did really have the most terrible illness! It is not about the illness itself, but you have just said it! I have said it before, too, so I know it. It is actually about you and the way you perceive it.  

A professor once said in our Philosophy class, “The worst incurable illness that a man has is not the illness itself, but the refusal to accept it. For there is no cure for this kind of illness, the illness that which you cannot accept.”

Now, to a believer’s point of view, this matter depends upon the way you perceive it, the way you see it, and the way you respond to it, and lastly, the way how we act upon the situation in accordance to God’s will.

Why not, instead of disdaining and pitying ourselves, we say:

“I’m sick. But my God is a Healing God.”

“It’s a terminal disease. But if this is God’s will, then there is a purpose behind it. So let His will be done.”

“When I die, don’t cry for me. In my Father’s arms, I will be. It don’t matter where you bury me, I’ll be home (in God’s heaven) and I’ll be free.”(Lyrics excerpt from “All My Tears” by Selah)

“For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” Philippians 1:21 (New International Version)

“For to me, living means living for Christ, and dying is even better.” Philippians 1:21 (New Living Translation)

If you are a true follower of Christ, then death has no hold of you. The Bible says that death is even better, for we know that we will be home at last, to God’s kingdom in heaven. We will be able to see our Father in Heaven, and he is then able to say to us, “Welcome, my faithful servant!”

Does it not sound good to you? It surely does!

However, to someone who does not believe in God, to someone who cannot ACCEPT Christ in their lives, they will surely fear death. For they know where they are going to be, not in the Father’s arms, but somewhere that will torment them for the rest of their eternal life, the HELL.

Alzheimer’s disease, asthma, cancer, and those other incurable illnesses are not really the worst. Do you want to know what the worst, the most terrible illness is? The one that could not be cured? The one that will torment you for the rest of your eternal life?

It is the refusal to accept the Truth.

If you know the Truth, the gospels of Christ, and yet you refuse to accept Him in your life because you love your sins than Him, then I tell you for certain:

“You have the most terrible and incurable illness here on earth!”

For to me, as a believer and a follower of Christ, the worst incurable disease here on earth is the refusal to accept the Truth, which is Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.

So, if you don’t want to have this incurable illness in your life, then go and repent your sins before the LORD, and seek to know Him.

Know the Truth. Do not REJECT it.

One Road, Two Souls

One Road, Two Souls

Word Counts: 100

Doubt mixed with fear occupies the contours of his very young face.

They’ve just arrived from town to encamp in the forest.

He grabs the man’s arm; looking distantly towards the grassy road. “Father, can we not go on any further?”

The man smirks, “Why is that, son?”

There is a sigh from the boy. “There might be bears out there, hiding behind those big tress!”

“Well, is it alright for me to think that you’re simply telling me you are afraid?”

“If…father walks by my side, then afraid am not.”

He pats his head, and they pursue the road.

Multitasking, The Danger

Written by: Jenine Silos

Multitasking.

Merriam-Webster.Com defines it as: the performance of multiple tasks at one time.

Photo credits: my4hrworkweek.com

We Filipinos are known as one of those multitasking persons, most of us, realistically. I think that explains why almost half of my fellow citizens are working as OFWs outside the country. I speak no wrong about it, however, I do believe that one of the major reasons why Filipinos are still in the midst of financial crisis is also rooted to this simple word–multitasking. Well, I do believe multitasking is a dangerous zone for yourself if you are not able to control it. Sometimes even, you have indulged yourself in many tasks without realizing that you have gone too far–too much that your body can’t actually handle. You heard me right. But somehow, and in some place, many have failed to notice it. We work so hard to earn money, until we get seriously ill because our body can endure no more. What happens next? We use the money we earned to pay for the hospital bills–our expenses are even two times the money we earned!

Some consequences of multitasking:

  • Stress
  • Inhibition of Creative Ability
  • Inability to Problem Solve
  • Slower Thinking

Even if we can handle multiple tasks at one time, or if we have the skills to pursue them, we still have to consider to take care the temple of the Holy Spirit–our body.

“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?  You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price.  Therefore honor God with your body,” (1 Cor. 6:19-20).

People who do overtime, those who work in consecutive period without taking rest are most preferably the ones who easily get sick. They’re easily prone to viruses and strong bacteria because their immune systems are weak, all of us know about it. Right? But because we, people as we are, we are so focused to make the ends meet; thus we have to work hard and harder until we have lost sight to our primary purpose in life, that is–to PLEASE, WORSHIP and SERVE the LORD our God!

As a Christian, we have to be very careful in whatever we do, since we have to put it in our minds that we do not live for ourselves–we LIVE to PLEASE God, not to please our neighbors. And thus, we have to consider to take care of our body. Too much work will slowly kill us physically, emotionally, and much worst to our spiritual life. I have thought of this because, just like what I mentioned earlier, when we work simultaneously (just for the sake of our fleshly desires) then we would slowly and gradually LOST our primary FOCUS in LIFE–to please, worship, and serve the LORD our God. Why? Because we have busied ourselves in too much hard work! It usually starts with waking up early in the morning, bearing in mind that we have lots of things to do, so we tend to hurry–to read the Word of God will not even sink into our minds, see?

What is the use of multitasking when we cannot even read the Word of God? I see this as the start of danger in our spiritual life, because as a Christian, we should not overlook this case. The danger zone? It is when you start thinking of completing the tasks before anything else! Because we then prioritize the human works before God! Uh-uh, sounds very dangerous to me.

If we are multitasking persons, then we could at least use it for the  glorification of God’s Kingdom and His name, however, we still have to remember that we have to take care of our body for it is the temple of the Holy Spirit. We have to consider our earthly limitations. So that God can use us MORE to glorify Him and His Son, our only Lord and Savior–Jesus Christ.

There is danger behind these multiple tasks–because if this is left uncontrolled it will affect our daily walk with Christ Jesus. Multitasking will drain us out physically and emotionally when it is left uncontrolled, and sooner or later, it will affect our spiritual life. I hope you get the message!

In everything we do, we must be very careful.

If you are convicted by this message, then go and pray. Talk to our Loving Father, and let us repent our sins.

Prayer: LORD, please forgive me, for I have done so many works yesterday and today, without even realizing that I was not able to spend time with You. Help me oh Father, to love You more than any works that this world has to offer. In Jesus’ name, Amen and Amen.

Understanding God’s Plan

Written by: Jenine Silos

Exodus 4: 10 But Moses said to the LORD, “Oh, my LORD, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and of tongue.”

In Exodus, when God appointed Moses to lead the numerous Israelite out of Egypt, Moses initially doubted his ability to God and complained to Him about his slow of speech, and I was like “This is it,” as I have read the passage. Immediately, the Holy Spirit convicted me of the verse and I knew then that God wants to use my passion to glorify Him. And that passion is to write.

Well, I started writing way back in high school. However, what I liked to write were sad notes, funny articles, stupid stuffs, plus a nonsense compilation of stupid diaries. I loved to write so much before because I could not express what I feel inward, so I just put everything into words. When I entered college, my writing has been upgraded. Then I started to write fictions, short stories, and even sci-fie fantasies. Until I made my own comic book, but it was an amateur sketching, of course. That’s how desperate I was in writing and in story-making.

HOWEVER, my English skills are just average. My grammar is something I could not improve. That is why, no matter how I love to write, I only write for myself–and for myself alone–because I have no confidence to even share it.

Until such time that God made His way, and He impressed it to me that I could use my passion to honor His name. When I read about Moses, I was stirred up by his life. The Holy Spirit then convicted me: stop writing for yourself, go and write what is pleasing to the eyes of God. 

And I was like, WHAT?

I could not do that! I’m just a university student. I don’t have the skills and talent! I…I only write for leisure, a passion-that-is-good-for-nothing! People who will read my writings may not even believe me, and that is the worst! I thought within. And just like what Moses said: I AM ELOQUENT, LORD. I AM SLOW OF SPEECH AND OF TONGUE.

I was doubting my ability–I complained to the LORD just like what Moses did!

Exodus 4:11 Then the LORD said to him, “Who has made man’s mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind? Is it not I, the LORD? 12 Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall speak.”

But I still said to God, “Lord, are you sure about that? People will find it hard to believe in me, I’m not even sure about it myself. I wasted my years before, and no one would believe me.”

Exodus 4:13 But he (Moses) said, “Oh, my LORD, please send someone else.”

I did nearly the same. But in a rather different case. It took me many days of questioning God about this matter, until I realized that I have no right to question Him. I indulged myself in devotionals and reading the word of God (I was not reading from cover to cover that time), hoping that God will make another impression to me aside from the previous conviction. But God did not answer me. Even when I tried hard to seek Him through His word. Then I realized, that God was silent to me because He wants me to understand something, something even deeper.

Yet I still said, “But LORD, I am not fit to do what You want. I lack words and wisdom. If You want me bring it on, please give me the wisdom to enable myself to do what You want.”

And I prayed…and prayed to God: “Lord…if you really want me to do this then please give me wisdom to understand everything. Because I cannot do it alone. To write the testimonials of my life are too much for me to do, because they’re not good memories for me, they’re not good. But You have saved me by Your grace. And I have seen your miracles and doings in my life, You appeared before me, and called me. And now I know you have been with me all through those years, yet it took me many years to understand Your plan. Please let me serve You by using me so that Your Name will be glorified.”

And God answered me through the conviction of the Holy Spirit, just like what He had replied to Moses:

Exodus 4:14 ….Is there not Aaron, your brother, the Levite? I know that he can speak well. Behold, he is coming out to meet you, and when he sees you, he will be glad in his heart. 15 You shall speak to him and put the words in his mouth, and I will be with your mouth and with his mouth and will teach you both what to do.”

I was then speechless. Ashamed to myself. Because God has planned it very well, He has planned it from the start! And I was late to understand everything!

I have my older sister!

A sister who is literate in English, she can PROOFREAD what God wants me TO WRITE! At no cost in my part!

And so…immediately after that conviction, I told my sister (and my leaders in church) about it –that God wants me to write the testimonials and turn them into A NOVEL–A NOVEL that will glorify the Father who is in heaven!

I believe God is with me while I am writing this article. I believe that it is God’s words and wisdom that has inspired me to continue writing THE NOVEL—and right now, because of God’s grace and unique plans, I am almost done with the novel that He wants me to write. A novel that will inspire my brethren, so that they will know that God makes miracles–that God is LIFE.

My sister is proofreading the chapters now, while I continue to write the novel into its completion. And I pray to the LORD our God, that the THE COVENANT novel, will inspire more people despite of sufferings, pain, and temptations of this world.

I always keep this in mind now, that in order to understand GOD’s PLAN in our lives, we need to pray in sincerity and seek Him, seek more of His will, that by reading the word of God the Holy Spirit will convict it to us! Along the way, we may feel disappointed and discouraged, but we NEED TO PRESS ON, and FINISH THE RACE.

I’m not perfect, and you’re not either, but then, we have a PERFECT GOD. We may have the attitude, but God will always use someone else to correct us. When you feel like you’re not in the right plan that God has intended for you, RE-THINK what you did. And God will convict you through the Holy Spirit and through His word.

And whenever there is conviction, do not be condemned!

Romans 8:1

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”

AND GOD has inspired me to write this, too…..THAT:

In every correction there is gain.

A gain of understanding more of God’s plan.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

Why Sundays are Happy Days?

Written by: Jenine Silos

Once, a classmate asked me, her tone was suggesting deep curiosity, “Neen, you don’t usually hang out with us. Why is that?”

I just smiled. At first, I did not know how to answer her question, I didn’t even know if she would be able to understand my reasons. But, if I wouldn’t tell her the reasons right there, it would make me a hypocrite. And there was more than that, it would be similar as denying Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.

WHY?

Because when I was born again and decided to follow Christ, the worldly things don’t matter to me any longer. Including those hanging out with friends in the mall and to any place that benefits me nothing. Most of my college friends loved hanging out, but I wasn’t always there. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing. I don’t say it’s evil. But the question is…is it pleasing to the eyes of the Lord? Does my going there and here and fun all day will glorify the Father? Surely, yes, if that fun is for the Lord. But it’s unlikely.

So I told her, “Well, I am busy most of the time.”

She irked her brow. “Busy at what?”

“In ministry and other church activities. Or if not, I’m busy in school of course, sometimes working on with my part-time job. But, if I’m not busy then I’m just writing something. Most importantly, I don’t enjoy outside activities, unless it’s for the ministry. That is all to it. ” I said and she just nodded her head in awe.

Well, I’m a university student, and there are times that I have school activities during Sundays, but none of it I had attended yet. Because the JOY that I gain in worshiping the Lord every Sunday services cannot be compared to the JOY of that good grades! When it is Sunday, it is always a HAPPY DAY for me. Because it is the day wherein I can completely worship the LORD with all my heart and soul, it is His day. A BIG HAPPY DAY.

The only thing, and the best one I may add, that I can do for the Father is to avoid the worldly matters — and sooner or later, my classmates and friends would see the DIFFERENCE. The differences between my life and their life. It’s difficult, yes, especially when temptations are everywhere. But then, in God, nothing is impossible — I really love to say this — that there’s nothing impossible with God.

So what are the differences?

  • They go to beaches and clubs, I attend church monthly meetings.
  • They love worldly music, I find it annoying.
  • They use their free time after school for nothing, I use mine to attend every available activities I can attend to in the church.
  • They curse, I say nothing.
  • They laugh hard for funny jokes (and I am their laughing stock most of the time), but I laugh because that’s my character ever since I was born again.
  • When we fail a subject, they’re disappointed and sad. But I always smile and press on. As if nothing happens. They even told me that it was their first time to see someone who got failed and yet was still happy about it.
  • They wake up early in the morning for school matters, while I am always excited to wake up early for daily devotionals.
  • They don’t usually have peace…but in Him I always have.
  • They proclaim to believe in God, but their lifestyle do not say it.
  • They usually sleep or hang out on Sundays…but Sundays are my Happy days with the LORD.
Until one day, a close friend of mine came to asked me…because she wondered…and wondered…and wondered: “Neen, why are you always happy? Neen…what do you do in your church?” See????! Someone finally noticed the difference! And more…I so believed, more and more will be blessed just by noticing the differences of our lives. They will see God’s presence in me…and that is my desire.
I want to encourage my friends and classmates….that SUNDAYS are HAPPY DAYS with the LORD our GOD!
So I encourage you to go and be a blessing to everyone that you know! And sooner or later….those people around you will notice the difference.

The house’s going to be demolished. Soon.

“Mama, where are we going now?”

“I feel scared, Mama.” Added he, his face was innocent but dirt covered it all. “It was hard to get those papers…but…”

“Do not worry, son. Everything will be alright.” Assured the mother, a baby on her arms.

“Does He know our situation?” Asked the child.

“Yes, He does.” She grabbed the child’s arm, “Let’s not worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will worry about itself, son, today’s trouble is enough for today.” Then they both walked away.

Give Thanks

Written by: Jenine Silos

Give thanks with a grateful heart, in everything we do, give thanks.

Whether it is a failure, a suffering or a trial, give thanks to the LORD our God for in this times we are disciplined, we become even more stronger and courageous. If we are disciplined then it means God loves us, for who is a father who loves his child that does not discipline him? Proverbs 13:34 Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.

In every failure there is gain, success never starts automatically, it starts from failure. There is no top without bottom. There is no rich without poor. And so thus there is no problem without a solution – there is – we just have to ask for God’s guidance and help to enable us to solve them.

And to start reading the Bible is the start of understanding of what God really wants for us, it’s our daily bread that will equip us in our lives, in our daily walk with Him….and by reading the Bible we will know that God answers our prayers. Because everything is written in it.

It is important to note that it is not by our own hands that we have accomplished something great, it is not by man alone, but it is GOD’s way of telling you “Hey, son, I am here.” For there is nothing a man can do without the help of the LORD. If there is suffering, know that it is one of God’s way of reminding us in our sinful ways so that we may repent and turn back to Him.

At times, people suffer and encounter so much trials and pain, but we must know that God’s way of handling things are indescribable to the human’s mind; there are times that we just have to suffer so that God can test our hearts. Are we just obeying His words just for the sake of obeying, or are we obeying Him because we have the knowledge that He is God and Lord of Lords, and that we are doing it with a willing heart?

Rediscover you heart today. Examine yourself. Take time to spend time with God and talk to Him. In Him you will find peace, a kind of peace that the world cannot offer.
