Having a great week. 👌 Thank you Lord for the wonderful start. From that unexpected phone call last Monday, unexpected opportunity, bonding with my college ‘beaches’, those endless laughs and stories when I’m with them, and everything that comes with it plus a wonderful family, I really couldn’t ask for more. I am so blessed beyond words. Thank you so much my Daddy in Heaven. I love you 😘
Why is There a Man and He’s Not Mine was the book I just recently finished reading. I want to write a blog about it, not to spoil the book but to give the people who want to read it an overview and of course I want to share my insights. The author deserves it anyway! :) So here it goes… (Magkukwento muna ako.)
After attending dgroup at 12nn every Sunday, I usually go to CCF bookstore to look for next prospect books to read before heading upstairs for the 3pm Service. And I saw that book but did not pay attention about it because some books caught my attention first. Well the title is so catchy that will leave you asking why. “Oo nga, bakit nga ba?” And then, Ate Meldy, my discipler’s discipler introduced that book to us during the first Wednesday of the Welcome Wednesdays. ‘I remember that book!’ that’s what I said and they asked me if I have the copy, I said, no but the bookstore had a lot. Haha. Sabi ko, gusto kong basahin pero sabi nila bata pa daw ako. So ako bilang pasaway binasa ko pa din. Haha.
At first, I can’t relate my self to it. Usually, kapag hindi ko maintindihan yung binabasa ko there’s a big possibility that I will not continue reading. But the Lord directs me to continue and little by little I understand the heart of the author. The book will not teach the readers the ways on how to find their partner but to understand the longings of single women on their 50s. I thought the book is only for the golden single ladies but no, it opens my eyes and heart about them being single, their struggles and their longing for a lifetime partner. It taught me how to be sensitive to their feelings especially I’m surrounded with single ladies in the ministry.
It’s not that, there are also realizations about me being 19-year-old single (feeling) lady. :) I don’t have much experience when it comes to romantic relationships, I actually had a boyfriend once and our relationship ended us hurting each other. After we broke up, I didn’t look for a next partner but I chose to prioritize first my studies. With the help of the Lord, I finally moved on and think that I’m ready again to love and be on another relationship. But no one is courting me, either there’s no man interested in pursuing me. I’m really asking myself what the problem is, am I ugly, and etcetera. Of course, with God’s Word and by attending services, dgroup, conferences, seminar about love, courting and marriage, that area made the Lord clear to me. I am beautiful for I am fearfully and wonderfully made by God. (Psalm 139:14) And I’m thankful that the Lord preserves me for my husband to be and protects me from the wrong people.
One thing I learn from the book that in the beginning, the Lord created woman in the man’s rib meaning we are really to be under man’s authority. We are to submit to our husband and not to be dominant over them. But because of the fall of the human race, every woman puts a wall over a man to protect their heart and not to be hurt from them. Because of this wall, some women have this aura that there are no men to hurt them. So if you want to have a husband, you should break that wall, have this ‘welcoming aura’ and be ready to get hurt. (Correct me if I’m wrong, haha.) It’s like you are open to be under man for the rest of your life. That’s also a command from the Lord in Ephesians 5:22 and the man of course should be the head in leading his family closer to God, says in verse 23.
“Why is there a man and he’s not mine? Maybe because there are things you have to accomplish first that being single can.” I agree! As I evaluate myself and the state of my life right now, there are so many things I have to achieve first with the Lord but I’m still praying for the Lord’s will of me having my God’s best (husband). Hehehe I’m so touched with the author’s heart! I’m praying that God will continue to bless her to be a blessing to others especially to the single women who are also experiencing this longing. And I will ask God, if it’s His will for her to have a husband, He will let her marry the right man not for her to write another book, ‘Here is The Man and He’s Mine’ (I’m excited about it actually, if ever, and see how God move) but for her desires to be fulfilled. If not, I’m praying that God will fulfill that emptiness in her heart. Thank you so much for the wonderful book Ms. Orpah Omega Lee C. Marasigan. You have a wonderful name and a beautiful heart! God bless! :)
Yes, I was once a PWU Patriots cheerleader. That was when I transfered school in 2011 and joined the team in 3rd trimester. I only performed twice, in WNCAA and WCSA. Anyway, the experience was really really fun that I actually miss cheerleading. #ThrowbackThursday #tbt #cheerleader #pwu #patriots #IMiss

"Many teenagers simply don’t understand yet the real essence of dating. Pero bakit sila nakikipagdate? Maybe because of peer pressure, dating for them is a solution to their previous break-up, family issues, ang walang kamatayang inspiration factor, sexual urge, power tripping, nababagot sa buhay or maybe because of media influence." - Ronald Molmisa. #Lovestruck
If your standard of true love is not God’s true love or if your oppsite sex true love standard is not God’s, please do not date! [Feeling ko, the Lord is directly telling this to me.]
Though I sinned, though I failed, though I backslide, I stumble and fall, I stray away onto the wrong paths, became the biggest hypocrite, and hurt the Lord many times, His love for me never fails and He slowly straightening me out. Now that I learned everything I have are all from Him, I declare that I AM ALL HIS. Thank you Jesus ❤️#AllHis #LeadershipConference #CCF
