Around 3 years ago, I created my positive inspirational blog called The Rising Bliss when I am going through deep sorrow as I struggled adjusting into motherhood.
I wrote to encourage and uplift others, myself too. I was looking for the kind of endless euphoria so I came up with The Rising Bliss.
I was writing for the wrong reasons, to keep others and myself happy. I wrote Law of Attraction stuff. I didn’t know it hurt God because those were strange teachings.
He changed my heart. God transformed The Rising Bliss into a blog for His glory. God called me and asked to write for Him. I was scared to write about His Word in fear of making it jaded.
I prayed for courage, strength and wisdom. I only desire to write to make God happy. For now, I have to let go and be a mom. Sadly, someone took this name from me because I didn’t have enough to buy the domain. I leave it to God to help me forgive. God will repay.
I am still God’s work in progress. By God’s will, He will let me write again every once in a while. God revealed to me that The Rising Bliss meant Rapture.
He promised Jesus will come back to take us home to heaven one day. That will be the most glorious and joyful day.
“For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.”
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 ESV
In anything that we are going through, I pray we hold tight to God. One day, our trials will be over. He will take us home to heaven where we will have everlasting joy.
May we fix our eyes on God while we continue to prepare our hearts for Him and do His will as we wait for Jesus Christ’s return.
How are you preparing your heart for Jesus Christ? You can humbly pray and read God’s Word, the Bible. Ask forgiveness and repent of all your sins.
Ask Jesus to be your Lord and Savior. Ask God’s Holy Spirit to reveal the Bible to you. Start with an ESV or NIV translation of the Bible.
Surrender to Jesus Christ and have faith that He already paid for your sins. Go to God as you are and let God work in you. Give thanks and praise to God always.
Why walk with Jesus in just 40 Days when we can have eternal joy forever with Him?
God allowed me to sneak a peek into a free sample of “The Chosen: 40 Days with Jesus” and time to read it. I was thrilled! This is beautiful, direct, easy to read, short but meaningful. Perfect when I need to have time with God even just for a little while.
If you are seeking God, this book can help you understand the Bible more. This is as close as you can walk with Jesus.
I always wondered how it would be like to actually walk with Jesus when He went into this world. To really be physically close to our Lord and Savior.
To see His compassion, wonderful miracles and hear Him speak. That would be out of this world. larger than life. I would ask Him endless questions. I am so taking down notes of His every word.
Part of me desired to really be close and never leave His side. I find meaning and truth in life when I’m with Him. Jesus is the only one that helps me be good. His truth gives me joy and peace. He completes my soul.
Walking with God in faith is never easy. In my darkest times, He reveals His love for me. He keeps His promises and gives me hope of a beautiful eternal life with Him. God is my happy and safe place.
To be without Him is not life at all. I knew the difference because when I had my own money, job, academic accomplishments, physical beauty, approval of people, freedom and comfort, nothing filled me. I lost all these when I followed Jesus and became a mom but my life is so much full of goodness and eternal value.
What are we waiting for? Even in the midst of End of Times, we can have joy and peace in Jesus alone.
How did your 2019 go? It was a year of many challenges but greater blessings for me. I am so thankful to God that I survived with His grace.
I almost gave up but I am still here. God sent me loved ones who continously held me up unconditionally.
God is faithful to His promises. I know He is making me grow strong and faithful until the day Jesus comes back. God is preparing me for breakthroughs for His glory.
God broke my pride and selfishness, He is making me humble and selfless. From a comfy and worldly independent life of not needing help, God called me to be a stay at home mom and wife who serves my family before myself.
It is a painful process but God helps me endure. I am a constant work in progress and I pray God helps me to forgive myself every time I fail.
He is teaching me to walk in faith and not live by flesh. Having hardly any sleep, rushing to eat and daily hygiene everyday, constantly doing chores and caring for my kids, I struggled to keep my sanity. It caused me undiagnosed anxiety and post partum depression.
Yet every moment, God is with me. He lets me fulfill my mom and wife duties for His glory.
Just like Moses who God called to lead numerous Israelite to God’s promised land, I don’t know how I can make it on my own. I cry out to God to help me be the mom and wife He wants me to be.
If God pulled me through, so can He in your life. God has done many wonders and miracles ever since and until now. Nothing is too hard for Him.
One thing I leave you is to hold fast to God always. Love and pursue Him in prayer and learn His word through the Bible.
Praise God louder when things get harder. He will lift you up and comfort you in your trouble. I’d like to remind this to myself too.
In everything you do, may it be done with love and glory for God. I pray that we succeed in living for God this 2020 and forevermore.
If you feel like giving up, surrender every burden to Jesus. He will fight your battles and be Victorious over your life. With God, all things are possible.
What miracles and wonders are you hoping for God to give you this year? We can pray for them if you’d like to share in the comments.
Hallelujah. Praise to you forever. Happy Father’s day, Abba. You are great, wonderful, amazing, kind, awesome, just, merciful, perfect and holy. I adore and exalt you in my troubled and blessed times, Lord.
Thank you for your grace through Jesus. I can never be perfect but I can never turn away from you. I fail many times but I pray you forgive and change me.
My mind, heart, soul and body are a mess with all the chores and caring. You know the struggles and battles I fight everyday. I try so hard to glorify you with every task I fulfill.
Life’s hard but you are in control. You are my refuge, strength, comforter, peace, joy and my eternal life. You know my heart. You lift me when I’m so down and when I cry. You never let anyone and anything snatch me away from you. I await with hope until Jesus comes back to take us home to heaven someday soon.
I love you God. I really do.
Please help me to love you, my kids, husband and others as you will me to love even when my flesh fails me.
So imperfect and insanely exhausted with love,
Have you ever had way too many questions about life? Did you wonder why we do things that we do? And why we have to?
Maybe there was a time in our lives that we felt lost but we just couldn’t figure out what it is that makes us feel lost.
We’ve become so lost that we feel broken, bored, empty, isolated, meaningless and sad without even knowing it.
The only way to get out of this rut is to find Happiness in God’s Truth. Here’s how:
1.Be willing and choose to believe in Jesus as our Lord and Saviour.
God the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are three separate Divinities. Our Heavenly God the Father manifested in the Old Testament, showering us with love, blessings and protection but because of sin, God the Father needed to send Jesus to redeem us.
Jesus is God’s son who manifested in the New Testament. He needed to become human so he can take on the punishment and death that is meant for us because of our sin.
When Jesus resurrected, the Holy Spirit manifested in our time today. God the Father and Jesus did not to leave us defenseless over the enemy.
They sent the Holy Spirit to fill our soul so we would feel loved, safe, strong and have the discernment to stay in God’s love.
Often times having too many to believe confuses us. The best way to make sure our faith is in the right track is to follow the Bible.
2.Seek Jesus and Follow Him. Knowing that Jesus is the truth, the way and the life so we can go to God the Father, we need to learn, understand and follow His words.
We can always pray to Jesus to reveal His message to us. He always answers through the Bible and the preaching at the church. God assures us this:
We need to know God’s Word ourselves by reading the Bible to make sure that we are not misled. Only then do we grow stronger in faith in a true God.
We can do this by praying to God to help us understand His word. It is best to write down our daily reflections of a Bible verse or Bible chapter in a journal.
We can always join a Bible study group to share and learn more of God’s Word.
3.Know what delights God. When we know God we learn to love Him more. We desire to act towards making Him happy.
No one can tell us more about God and what delights Him than God Himself.
It is greatly important that we keep our own Bible and have a devotion time with God. Pray first that God may speak to us and that we may truly understand Him.
As we read a Bible verse, we need to reflect on it and what it means in our lives.
There will be times He tells us He loves us, comforts us, encourages us, guides us, answers us, warns us, blesses us and commands us to follow His guidance.
Write down the verses that’s been read and the reflections about it. Say a prayer of thanks to God for His loving truth. God says that we make Him happy when we:
4.Know what God detests. Loving God means turning away from actions that anger and hurt Him. We can do this by searching and reading related Bible verses that warns us of actions that we should avoid.
God hates sin because it keeps us away from Him. Here are sinful actions that God detests:
5.Know God’s Promises. When we learn to trust God’s promises, the Holy Spirit make it easier for us to follow God and let go of actions that He detests. We grow more at ease and overcome trials.
We gain confidence and strength in God. It changes us into becoming God’s people who desires to be right and worthy of His Love.
We find inner peace and happiness knowing God will always take care of us and we can always call on Him to help us in our circumstances.
One of the preaching of a Pastor mentioned that there are over 8,000 promises that God speaks to us in the Bible.
All these God has kept and fulfilled for us. These are just some of God’s promises to us:
Some of us may not need God for now and that is okay. God will find a way to turn your life around back to Him. Just know that God loves you and misses you so much until you come home in His love.
Let’s help others find Happiness in God’s Truth. By all means, please Like and Share.
How has God touched your life positively and changed it? Feel free to talk with me in the comments.
Just when we think we got our whole life planned ahead of us and somehow got it quite figured out, suddenly out of nowhere comes a sudden plot twist.
Divine Interruption is when God would nudge us away from our busy lives to fulfill greater plans for us.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)
He knows the best purpose for our life and God will help us accomplish it. “Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.” (Proverbs 16:3).
A life fulfilled in God is the happiest life. So how do we open up ourselves to God’s Divine Interruption?
1.Pay attention and Listen.
Gradually immerse yourself in God’s Word. Find a Christian group of friends to go on a journey in a loving relationship with Jesus. Read the Bible, Christian books and blogs. Go to a Christian church.
Watch or listen to Christian preaching of God’s Word. Write down God’s Word from reading the Bible, Christian books, Christian Blogs and from the Christian church. Pray for God to reveal His message to you.
Write a reflection of the Bible verses that you came across or heard from these sources. Pray that you may listen, remember and act accordingly to God’s Words.
When you seek God, you’ll be surprised with how He will take care of your struggles, provide you blessings and shower you with so much love.
The Word of God that you’ll come across is not an incident. God will speak to you and you’ll know it’s Him. When I first attended a Christian service, God spoke to me right away.
The Pastor preached about How to Outsmart the Lies of the Devil. I was going through a broken family that was filled with hate, anger, greed, pride and unforgiveness.
I’ve always did good but I’ve always felt like disruptive people have everything easy. God through the Pastor said that’s what the devil would want good people to believe so they stay far away from God.
When in reality, God has already overcome all our struggles for us and in the end, those who side with the devil will never win no matter how it seems disruptive people have everything easy.
We just need to arm ourselves with God’s Word. I cried because God knew my heart’s burdens. I used to mediate between mom and my brothers but nothing. They only become worse.
I lifted up my family and home to God. Ever since then, God is fixing my family. Home has become so peaceful and happy. I didn’t have to do anything on my own. Imagine a God who loves you completely.
He’ll fill up every void in your being and His love consumes your heart that it overflows. You won’t help but love Him more and more.
Believe and keep God’s Word as your truth. Pray that God provide you His Holy Spirit to help you live by God’s Words.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV)
Even if we can be skeptic and cynical, be willing to put your trust in God. My academic and writing accomplishments, knowledge about Psychology and Law of Attraction and my financial abundance at work in the past has quite made me arrogant.
I thought I did everything my own but it was God revealing His power through me all along. For 7 years, God helped me overcome stress in a job I never liked but paid well.
He healed me from Post Partum Depression when my degree in Psychology can’t. He removed the painful internal lumps in my abdomen that I’ve suffered for 3 months even if I went to the doctor and took medication.
God answered my prayer when He turned my hubby into a Man of God. He dropped smoking and drinking. We learn God’s Words together. God made me and hubby stronger.
God never let me fall regardless of attacks from the devil. When you trust God and call on Him, He will always make a way for you.
Give all your love to God and keep His Word in your life. God keeps His promises when we obey Him with all our heart. As it was written in the Bible, disobedience comes with dark consequences.
I realized this the hard way. I remember God’s soft whisper in my heart when he asked me: “Write for me. Write about me.” I go: “Me? Who am I to speak your words, God? I’m scared I’d say the wrong things.” God didn’t force me and waited. Until I forgot about His request.
As I begin to obey Him little by little, God blessed me with a child. I had to leave the corporate world and be a mom. I went my own way but life has been so dark. The enemy attacked my family, finances and inflicted me with Post Partum Depression.
The darkness almost took my life. I cried to God and He healed me. God took me back to His church and when He gave me a chance to be a blogger, I remembered His request. God divinely interrupted me by blessing me with my child.
God spoke to me through the Pastor’s preaching when he quoted God’s Word:
“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)
God encouraged me with his Grace! And so I happily write for God and about God to you now.
Always talk to God. Keep a prayer time to give praise and thanks. Repent and ask for forgiveness. Humbly talk to God heart to heart about your needs and desires, as long as it is aligned with His will for you, God will fulfill it for you in His perfect time.
“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.”(1 John 5:14)
When you follow God’s Word, He will always answer your prayers according to His plan and for your highest good.
“If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.” (John 15:7).
Continue to live by God’s Word no matter how challenging it may be. The Holy Spirit of God will help us do the right thing. God will answer you through the Bible or through the preaching at the Church.
“As for you, brothers, do not grow weary in doing good.” (2 Thessalonians 3:13).
Once you hear God’s whisper calling you to use your skills, talents, do good and share His Word, pray for God’s guidance and wisdom.
God will speak to you with encouragement and instructions. Just follow and set away your fears. God will make you worthy and qualified to do His task.
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.” (James 1:5)
When God divinely interrupts you, find delight in faithful obedience. Be excited! He is going to do amazing miracles in your life. Hardships may happen along the way but God will keep you strong to fulfill His plans.
