When we say do not worry.. It doesn’t mean we didn’t care.. It just means we know for sure we can’t change the circumstances.. We just know that we still have the opportunity to change whatever is ahead of us…
The concept is beautiful, but how do we reach this level of faith?
how does one actually achieve the level of not worrying even when you hear that “everything’s going to be okay”? Yet the problems keep bothering you? And you know that it doesn’t feel okay..
We have to start the process of looking backwards. Haven’t we had so many trials and most of them haven’t found any solutions at all. Most of the problems didn’t even found an answer at the moment we needed them..? Isnt that awkward?
And yet… After all the trials and problems we faced, we still live and survived.. We had learnt a new strategy on how to handle such situations and we also learnt how to manage ourselves.. And we have discovered to discipline our concerns and behaviour on how to deal with the issues.
Many people believe in G‑d, but true trust in G‑d is a whole different level. People who trust in G‑d don’t worry. They do their best to help out the situation, but they know that the outcome is in the hands of G‑d, and ultimately, it’s for the good.
Look back to where you were ten years ago and look where you have reached today, and tell me: Is there a reason to worry?” is it necessary? Does it help?
Why not look at the people who are actually in need your help right now and lay your troubles in the hands of the mighty.. Be a vessel of blessing to others and help them out of their difficulties.. And we will realise how fortunate we are with the ability to become an inspiration of joy and an instrument of good.
in my whole life as an adult… I am glad to meet the husband who made me feel I am beautiful even if rarely think about it myself. Im glad he made me feel loved that I forget to post on facebook how much we love each another. I
didnt need the likes to feel good..because he made my house a home and made my heart warm. He made my children feel they have a father and we all felt as if we became whole…
I have noticed from my past posts in the last 12 years… Everyday I use to post something about my activities. I use to post useless commentaries and how obnoxious I was about life and everything. I have never felt loved and I have never felt worthy. Never had a day I had positive thoughts. And although I had relationships, I still felt neglected and alone. The friends I met wasnt real to me. They were just there for some reason I guess that they didnt had any choice. But now, I know that God has been so good to me…
But these 2years, it had changed… My posts became few about myself. I started to minimise the attention and I have learned to protect my familys welfare in social media….Most of all… I didnt care more about problems….because God made me complete…And the people who use to discriminate me and spiritually abused me… I have discovered that they were wearing mmasks all along… SO for the record.. I have to give Applause to GOD in heaven…I am using social media without my privacy being taken away!
I have been in a livestream for while and I have wandered from my blog. But here I am to write something that I have learned this week.
Recently, I have been talking about inspiring others. I have been motivated to spark others and sometimes while seeing them coming up, I felt Im being left. And that emotion had made me feel absurd for some reason and caused me to be suspicious about others thinking they were using me.,
But that is not the case. I have weighed my thoughts for some time and observed the people I assumed were not real. And I have been watching how people react on certain messages I convey, how do they perceive me and how do they look at me? What do they think and what do they know?
I have heard different comments about how I inspired others. And it felt so good that I could do that. Of course not of my own but of God. And it is a pleasure to serve other people through the free platform where I dont need to hire a local to speak. The website is free for Journaling and the Youtube is free for video messaging.
I discovered, that as much as I have earned experiences..the situations I went through were not the same as theirs. But the struggles and pain we felt were all the same. And the sleepless nights had made us all feel suspicious and afraid of others. It wasn’t really the environment that affects us, but our assumptions and fear had made us far ,,,,
So i dedicated myself to inspire others. but the more I inspire, I felt useless. and the more I speak of encouragement, the more I felt weak. I guess its because the message we usually give to others are the message more intently made towards ourselves. When I thought I inspire, I felt it is for myself. So I encourage you to keep moving and insipiring other people. Because you have no idea what life you are changing… You have no idea who you ar einfluencing!
The Law is not known to men by words but subconsciously, though we could not memorize the Ten Commandments of the Lord, He already wrote it in our hearts and minds. And since Adam and Eve, the Law had been given through Moses and in his part, he wrote it on the stone. But also it is said that the law is written in our hearts so no one is excuse and God gave the Spirit of conscience so that we may find to know doing the things that are right.. that we know by natural sense when we do mistakes and whenever we commit sin, because our Spiritual eyes and soul is screaming for righteousness though in our human flesh we still ought to follow for our own pleasure. So be prepared and sensible whenever the devil tries to trick you. Always pray and seek the Lords help..
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts.”—Hebrews 8:10.
For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.-Romans 1:20
Numbers 15:40 That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God.
Deuteronomy 5:29 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!
Deuteronomy 8:11 Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:
Deuteronomy 11:27 A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day:
Deuteronomy 11:28 And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.
When I look at the birthpangs beginnings.. I guess that we all are tested to where we lay our trust and hope. I am reminded of my laboring days when I was pregnant around 8th months and I was struggling with the weight of my stomach, excitement of seeing my child and at the same time hard to breath because of the movement of the baby inside. I had some pain in between that I have to be patient from which affects my daily routine. I become limited in movement and my surrounding became much more hard to understand. As the 9th month arrived, I felt so close to the edge. I became scared, what if i can’t give birth normally? and I also have to discipline myself as well about dietary factors.
The day arrived of giving birth and I finally felt the pain became more intensive and much more unbearable at the moment. I screamed within me that I just want the baby out! At the same time, when I imagined my attitude towards the people that ussrounded me at that moment, I cant comprehend how did they cope up with me. My attitude under pressure was harsh, unbearable and unrespectful.
I believe in our times, we are same as the woman in labor. Our attitude are untamed due to the pain and sufferings we see, hear and experience. Yet it is very interesting to know that we are still hopeful of giving birth of a new creation, a new individual that would contribute something in the near future.
I have experienced hunger and small difficulties. A disaster of an earthquake in Philippines I have witnessed.
Now when I see and how sickness hovers the nation and takes lives. I am not afraid. Maybe I am just a bit worried of what my children would eat for a day.
I have dreamt of a passing angel soaring with slight of pain for the earth. We are tested in our hearts if we will be worried and afraid. For this is the nature of the earth for some souls who do not fear Hashem. We as believers has high hopes and highest praise. We know the birth pangs produces more sufferings and we wont know how long. Rest assure, lay our hearts to not store as much materials but gather our hearts into prayers and Thanksgiving despite of suffering.
The God of Abraham ISak and Yakov knows how human resistance is. We pray for the people who are affected and the nations already taking its pain. We suffer for them as if we are in their situations. May Hashem be merciful and allow the pain to lessen. And if Hashem is angry may He subside and allow His mercy and grace come through.
Do not look through the circumstances of nations now. We pray without fear. We are the warriors of our time in this generation.. Our skills is going to be developed in the beginning of these birthpangs. As Yeshua says, we will hear all this things. Rest assured to not worry and not be afraid. For the end is not yet…… Hashem is with us… Amein..
Thought for the day. I have heard it said many times that health care professionals joke and do not take COVID 19 seriously. Maybe we aren’t hysterical as everyone else. But I would like to draw your attention to 4 facts.
First, in order to work in healthcare, one must have a sick / dark sense of humor – forgive that it is just a requirement. And if you’re not one of us, you don’t understand.
Secondly, just because we do not buy 50 cases of baked beans and quarrels about the last can of Antibac spray or toilet roll from our local stores, does not mean we are not preparing. And most of us do not have the income to store. We just buy necessary things to consume for a month or for a day, It does not mean we aren’t prepared., in fact we go to work as a daily routine without knowing what illnesses we can come in contact with ….. So prevention of infection and standard precautions are part of our everyday lives.
Third, when has mass hysteria helped any situation? Does your worry and fear contributes any good for the sake of societys welfare? We may be trained to keep calm, cool and collected in stressful situations.
And last but not least … while everyone is worried about travel bans, government enforced quarantine, and being out of school / work for who knows how long, who do you still think will be allowed and required to go to work? You guessed it right .. !! Healthcare professionals! We are the one’s that doesn’t have bans at work.. So ….. Don’t panic … use your common sense … pay attention to yourself and others … stay safe … Go now and wash your hands. 😷🧼🚰🏨 😷🧼🚰🏨 😷🧼🚰🏨
WHEN DEATH SCARES YOU.. YOU KNOW THAT SOMEWHERE IN YOUR LIFE. YOU HAVE NOT DEALT WITH YOUR PERSONAL ISSUES YET.
Just as you have power and control hunger over everything and everyone… You fear that you might loose that power in your hand. And when war, sickness arrives.. You wish that the times wasn’t up yet… And suddenly realises, you have wasted the time given.
AND THATS WHY GOD TEACH US TO TRUST IN HIM AND HAVE HOPE. BECAUSE FAITH HAS ITS IMPORTANT ROLE. IT GIVES YOU THE REFLECTION WHILE YOU ARE ALIVE..
To not fear death and to live fully without regression. To learn to speak openly to your loved ones while you can see them, to be in their presence and embrace them..
War, sickness and brokenness cannot separate us from the love of Messiah Yeshua. Remember that. So dont run like you gonna die so fast while you have the chance to change the ways with your family and make changes in the world. /Lovelots Rochelle
If only PIG EATERS KNOW WHAT DANGER YOU ARE PUTTING YOUR SYSTEM INTO..
I am not used to eat a lot of pig and shrimp. I grew up in a poor family and meat are very expensive. So we barely ate those when i was little. We ate mostly chicken because there’s huge sale of it most of the weekends when the market change their items. And most of our diet was vegetables soup because we couldn’t afford. We usually ate meat 2x month when I was little in what I can remember.
I dont crave meat but its recommended to eat for the needs of the body and the nutrition we benefit from it. yet shrimp, lobster, fish without scales are common cleaners of the sea and riverbed. The pigs is likely to human and it eats its dirt and even can eat other pigs wounds. and some birds aren’t edible due to their nature. The big consumption of pig and shrimp… though has created some health issues. Not just these food but other kinds of food can create bad effects on our health as well.
I noticed my body has become more healthier despite that i dont eat pig often.. On the other hand, i have some skin rashes when I ate pig before and have some skin allergy when I eat shrimp and lobster. I could die. 😂 When I was young I thought it was asthma. But now I know. 😕💭 So I stick with the diet I grew up with. More vegetables and chicken and fish… And now because I can afford… I eat my favourite philippines beef stew and soup.
I dont condemn those who eat and I know like you and me.. We can be hated because we have a changed diet. As the scriptures say.. The one who eats herbs cannot condemn the ones who eat unclean.. So do i… But most response we may receive can contain information of disregard and anger. Be prepared h😂💢 As Islam has other way of looking at pigs. I dont look at pork like them. I just know for sure some way or other, it is still a creation.. And as a believer in God.it is still a living being. It is edible to eat for many… And im not against people who est that. My personal diet is my own responsibility. But I am aware of how farms raise their cattles. Because I myself grew up while my parents raised a lot and lots of pigs.. We sold them and we earned from them.. And if you think pig is life.. i get you.. Dont worry… If the pig is treated well and raised in an open farm without manipulation of chemicals pellets in their food.. Then you are good to go. Sweden and some other country has the farm and animal control so you are in a safe mode.
When I’m finding comfort and beauty in life’s purpose, in my contribution to the world, in my committed relationships and my reason for being, my soul starts shining. My internal world has clarity; life makes sense and there is no sense that darkness has to battle. Because I know, darkness wont stay long.
If I beleiev that God is light then I know that He will lead me to the light with peace and understanding. It might be difficult at the moment, but for sure its all for good.
But when my attention is distracted by life’s glitter, by the reckoning flicker of life’s pleasures, distracted even by the sorrows of this world and trials that I meet, then my soul feels dying; it’s obscured and ignored. And the light starts to tick off…
But when I see the purpose of darkness and how far Ive come, I recognise the Light that pushed me far. The darkness that pulled me down but the Light challenged me to come through. I reckon the joy of my heart and the gladness of heavens that I was born to change the world….even in a small amount of smile on others faces.
The darkness that pulled me down but the Light challenged me to come through.darkness doesn’t necessarily mean evil; it means the absence of light
I HATE VALENTINES DAY. BECAUSE IT IS A PRESSURE TO BUY GIFTS AND MONEY MACHINE FOR BUSINESS PROPERTIES.
🔊Take your risk to read more. Otherwise.. SCROLL DOWN.. AND SKIP. ON A VALENTINES DAY, MANY PEOPLE JUST THINK OF CONSUMING STUFF AND CONSUMING FOOD. AND WOMEN TEND TO BE BOUGHT FOR A DAY. WHY NOT DO IT EVERYDAY? HMM? It IS MERELY A CONSUMERS DAY… MANY SPEND A LOT MORE MONEY ON STUFF TO BUY THAN GIVING YOUR TIME TO YOUR LOVE ONES HOLDING THEIR HAND AND TELLING THEM THE WORDS WITHOUT A STUFF IN BETWEEN…
WE TEND TO IGNORE THE SIMPLE THINGS OF TRUE LOVE AND MEASURES IT WITH MATERIAL THAT FADES AWAY. We express our care through the things we can buy and not with the precious emotions we wanna say. Human can be so hypocritical just to adjust on MANLY EVENTS. 🙄IF WE ARE TRUE TO OURSELVES, WE ACTUALLY DON’T GAIN MUCH ON A VALENTINES DAY BUT A STUFF THAT TAKES A LOT OF SPACE AND A SMALL MEMORY OF A PARTICULAR DAY THAT SUPPOSEDLY DONE IN OUR DAILY LIVES. IF WOMEN WERE SPECIALLY TREATED AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK OR ONCE A MONTH, OR JUST TO BE APPRECIATED.. THEN THE DEMANDS OF BOUQUET AND CHOCOLATES WOULD COLLAPSE ON A MARKET.
But since Valentines is a CONSUMER AND BUSINESS PLAN.. Then THE STORES AND FLOWER SHOP EARNS THIS DAYS MORE THAN THE OTHER HOLIDAYS.
Let’s go to History:
Don’t you know that VALENTINES DAY derived from ROMAN TRADITION. traced back as far as the 6th century B.C. It was first called LUPERCALIA.. Every year on February 15, the festival began by going to the Lupercal (the legendary site where Romulus and Remus were suckled) and sacrificing a dog and a goat.
St. Valentine was a priest who lived around February 14 270 AD VALENTIN DIED in Rome and attracted the disfavor of Roman emperor Claudius II who ruled during this time.
The story of St. Valentine has two different versions – the Protestant and the Catholic one. Both versions agree upon Saint Valentin being a Bishop, who held secret marriage ceremonies of soldiers in opposition to Emperor Claudius II who had prohibited marriage for young men and become soldiers instead of marrying. Due to his ceremonies of secret marriages he then was sentenced to death. While Valentin was imprisoned due to his disobedience to the Emperor. Valentin was visited by the Emperor Claudius yet Valentin DID NOT RECOGNISE THE ROMAN GOD AND did not agreed to BAN MARRIAGES ON YOUNG MEN and EVEN tried to convert the Emperor into Christianity.. He became a martyr for refusing to renounce his religion and beliefs. TODAY, ROME do not talk so much about HIM because ALL GLORY BELONG TO ROME and not the God of ISRAEL.
THERE’S A BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A GOD OF ABRAHAM ISAC AND JACOB.. THAN TO THE gods of Rome
LATER after the death of ST Valentin, it WAS systematically Christianised through celebration LUPERCALIA where Rome Celebrates FERTILITY OF LAND AND WOMEN. THEY SACRIFICE GOATS FOR FERTILITY AND DOGS FOR PURITY. DEDICATED TO THE GOD OF AGRICULTURE FAUNUS. THEN SLAP THE BLOOD ON WOMEN AND FIELDS BELIEVED TO HAVE GOOD HARVEST AND CONCEIVE CHILDREN.
LATER a Pope criticised these events and was outlawed to be “UN CHRISTIANED” circa 494 CE, Pope Gelasius wrote a letter criticizing Christian participation in it.he replaced it with celebration to Valentines day commemorating the Valentin of Rome martyrdom. but in the end of all this story… Pope Gelasius is not even believed to be true in his replacement of the said celebrations because… There are still some of “love” consuming act effects on the celebrations like sex, drunkenness, giving gifts and sometimes violence.
Now you know.
THE ONLY THING I LOVE IN FEBRUARY IS THE BIRTHDAY OF MY LOVE ONES.
VALENTINES.. SUCKS! AND I NEVER DEMANDED MEN I’VE MET TO SPEND A PENNY FOR ME ON VALENTINES DAY.. COZ FOR ME VALENTINES IS JUST A PRETENTIOUS DAY.. THIS IS A PERSONAL OPINION. ANYONE WHO CAN’T AFFORD TO ACCEPT THAT.. CAN GO TO THE DOWNSIDE OF THE UNIVERSE. 🙄😠😜
In Hebrew there is NO WORDS OR TRANSLATION CHURCH. it was all about GREEK TRANSLATION that has the translation Church. And in jewish mindset if we refer to the roots of Biblical term, it is normal for them to gather in homes and have a common meeting regarding their practices and beliefs.
And somehow in other days they meet in synagogue But, the problem is, under the grecian/seleucid empire ca 165BC the Greek/Roman have persecuted many and that was before Jesus. Many died practicing their faith openly therefore the Antiochus 4 had made even a law that ANYONE CAUGHT in practicing the biblical feasts and tradition, observing sabbath or observing their dietary laws or even reading their Torah(5books of Moses)will die. So in those days many died, and So apparently, thats how the Hellenists were born. Some of the jews came over to Greek and denied their god and customs. And some of these blasphemous converts to greek/roman had become idolatrous to the antiochus statue zeus. And in those days, those whom have not denied their faith have learned more to gather themselves at homes. That is when Jesus as well came and people thought that He was false because of the oppression of the jewish and gentile converts to Judaism.
The pharisees and saducees though had already been implementing laws that would benefit both the empire of rome and would somehow try to take in the jewish community and even the non jewish converts.
Imagine how much they had to go through those days just to perform their faith. And we nowadays are enjoying and just learning about it. Isnt that an encouraging story and a history of our faith?
In those days of persecution, the people of the Lord learned to protect their co minded people, it made a division between the people to determine which side they were on. And even nowadays we could see big differences between us all.
With denominations, every person determined to be loyal to their churches, arent that the same as the greek times? And in that we are even slanderous towards another. We are in a new era with a same amount of falsehood when it comes to faith. We are actually afraid to stand truely without knowing where we belong. We have forgotten the reality of our roots and the truth of our faith…

I can inspire and I can be a good help to everyone. But despite of this good side, I am weak in some things like everybody else. I love the name given to me. But I’m confident to the name i grew up with.
SYNOPSIS OF THE NAME: at School I was bullied by the name KARLA. I Was called by many people with a following defamation and unpleasant words that led to my self defence at young age. but by friends and Family I was called ROCHELLE. WITH FAMILY I was known to be caring, naughty, and sometimes out of hand. My teenage years were built by the name ROCHELLE. And I was called funny, witty and very open. I was myself. Then I came to Sweden and I was called KARLA. My self confidence deteriorated. Some people described me by how they look at me. Because of the tragedies and failures, my name became the talk of town. My environment wasn’t described as my name should be. FREE.. some make fun of me and some made use of me. TODAY I WANT TO TAKE BACK MYSELF. AND I WANT EVERYONE TO STOP CALLING ME KARLA. BECAUSE DESPITE THAT IT IS MY NAME. I grew up with ROCHELLE. Dont make fun of my name because for me, it is a very sensitive thing. I erase any memories done in that name..

By name you have your self esteem. And by name God had provided you something to work with along with your character. If you can, try to call me in a name I already know…. Thank you so much for being understanding.
Social media is overwhelming with photos of couples travelling together, having many material collections, luxurious hotels and meals together with a 5 star treatment… And a smile on their face… And everyone behind the screen claims it… HAPPINESS!
But is this true happiness? Is it based on your social media accounts? Is it based on where you went? Where you ate and what you have? Is relationship based now according to the comfort that it gives?
Is relationship based now according to the comfort that it gives?
As Marriage starts, some have comfortable beginnings. Some can afford to travel, shopping, eat in luxurious restaurants and gain expensive things. In the beginning of a comfortable journey, many would claim it perfect….mostly they say with a selfish word “My Life is Perfect”
But are these things we see with our eyes only perfect because we are comfortable? Because we didnt need to stretch and struggle a bit..? Or is it perfect only for us with the benefits for ourselves as the other partner would sacrifice a lot….
What if…. The beginning of marriage was tears of uncertainty and unexpected changes, desolation, trials, pain, failures and the only thing you have is enough to eat for the day. All you have materially is not expensive as everyone has… And the travels you dreamed once is out of the plan. The restaurant meals are far from expected and you have to stretch the budget at home?
In the midst of all this mess, will you still look at your partner and say…. Our life is perfect together.. We get the odds meaningful and we will gain the travel, the comfort of this life and the expensive things will come afterwards… The perfect life is here and now.. We live and breath making the journey home… Because together we can do it without the efforts of one another…
