God's Message

Sharing something I received in my inbox:

You say: "It's impossible." God says: All things are possible. (Mark 10:27)

And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.

You say: "I'm too tired." God says: I will give you rest. (Matthew 1:28)

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

You say: "Nobody really loves me." God says: I love you. (John 3:16 & John 13:34)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

You say: "I can't go on." God says: My grace is sufficient. (II Corinthians 12:9 & Psalms 91:15)

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

You say: "I can't figure things out." God says: I will direct your steps. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

You say: "I can't do it." God says: You can do all things. (Philippians 4:13)

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

You say: "I'm not able." God says: I am able. (II Corinthians 9:8)

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

You say: "I'm not worth it. God says: It will be worth it. (Romans 8:28)

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.

You say: "I can't forgive myself." God says: I FORGIVE YOU. (I John 1:9 & Romans 8:1)

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

You say: "I can't manage." God says: I will supply all your needs. (Philippians 4:19)

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

You say: "I'm afraid." God says: I have not given you a spirit of fear. (II Timothy 1:7)

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

You say: "I'm always worried and frustrated." God says: Cast all your cares on ME. (I Peter 5:7)

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

You say: "I don't have enough faith." God says: I've given everyone a measure of faith (Romans 12:3)

For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith

You say: "I'm not smart enough." God says: I give you wisdom. (I Corinthians 1:30)

But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

You say: "I feel all alone." God says: I will never leave you or forsake you. (Hebrews 13:5)

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Hiking in La Trinidad : Mt. Yangbew

To kickoff 2017, I  returned to the Cordillera region with one of my closest friends, Jules. We wanted to take it easy  so we decided to try a couple of short but very scenic trails in Benguet I found online (References posted below). 

Barangay Tawang in La Trinidad,the capital of the province of Benguet  is less than an hour from Baguio city and features several accessible, scenic mountain trails - Mt. Yangbew (also known as Mt. Jambo), Tayawan view deck and Mt. Kalugong. These are all beginner-friendly or as the younger Pinoy millenials would say, pabebe-friendly. :P
Since we were taking a super early bus ride,  (1:30 AM early! :P), we made sure  we got nice, comfy seats. Fortunately, with 3 days prior to the trip, we were able to book online via iWantSeats.

In five hours, we arrived in the City of Pines and walked towards Session Road to hunt for a hotel. Fortunately, a vacant room was immediately available at Benguet Prime Hotel so we were able to leave our bags.  We took our sweet t…

Part 2 : Bataan Adventures | Where to Eat in Bataan (Updated 2017)

Being an avid hiker and foodie, I've grown very fond of visiting  Bataan.  This province offers several hiking trails (check my post here) passing verdant forests and nicely decorated cafes and restaurants where you can enjoy a proper cup of coffee and affordable comfort food. It is also highly accessible from Manila via land travel, making it a good option for a short but rewarding out of town adventure. 

Here's a list of restaurants in Bataan where you can enjoy satisfying meals. 

ANGELITOS (Orani)
The restaurant's name which means little angels (male) was inspired by the owner's 3 young boys, Miguel (after St. Michael), Rafael and Gabriel.This 2 year old family owned restaurant has a homey ambiance and serves any type of food that the family enjoys.

Dishes are flavorful and priced affordably -100 Pesos above for the main dishes and 20 Pesos above for the desserts.Specialty includes, pork binagoongan and creamy tofu (my fave!). The restroom which has a mini garden is als…

1.  Footwear
Footwear should enhance your experience outdoors and protect you from injury. There are shoes designed specifically for hiking but I encourage you to research the mountain  first before purchasing hiking shoes. Will there be sections where you need to cross rivers? How long will you be hiking?If the mountain has a clear and established trail that normally won't take more than 4 hours to complete, you can very w…
