Father's Love Letter

after visiting grace's page and seeing 'interview with God' for the nth time. (wee. i saw it first 2years ago and we always present that slideshow in our LTSs so i have watched it more than my fingers already. lol) i decided to post this vid too. not the interview with God anymore but the 'Father's Love Letter'. i dunno if you had watched it already. but then again, its good to see it over and over again. i saw this last year. and also shared it to highschoolers when we facilitated their recollection. its a video. no. a compilation of words from the bible, actually.. which was organized by this someone (he's name is on the credits) and was made into a letter. i was amazed of how the verse/words matched, and, hence, was called the "Father's Love Letter".

i hope it could touch your heart. lighten up the minds of those who are confused. (kung meron. ahehe. lol) and just strengthen your faith in Him. here it is..

This is just so true!

A lot of people take for granted the Supreme Being. Siguro they play god most of the time (busy with life's trivialities with chivalry and competition) kaya a lot of things doesn't make sense.

I believe this life is really supposed to be simple. Simple if we put ourselves in His Eyes.

God Bless You Pastor Jhosel...

=)

jhosel

dumugo ako dun oracle ha. ahehe. lol.
agree ako. we tend to forget about God because of our earthly desires.. life is simple. we just have to let Him journey with us.

ngek! pastor? di ata bagay yun sakin ah. ahehe. tho i am a believer. yun na lang.

wee. god bless u too.

=supergulaman=

Amen.

pero seryoso...khit sa anung pagkakataon, wag natin Siyang kalimutan...sa bawat pagkakataon Siya ang aking naging sandigan...kapiling sa panahon ng kasiyahan at maging sa kalungkutan....Siya din ang gabay sa aming pag-ibig...

sabi nga ni Grasya...pray and have faith, it works... :)

These are all Good Words and indeed some are even inspiring, However, I don't want to dwell on the Idea of the supreme being. Though, strongly Believe in God. I don't believe in the way He's always portrayed. Some devout Catholics would even consider me a non-believer for how I see God but I do, I guess I'm just more exposed to the world that's why.

Lols. ano na naman ba pinagsasabi ko? lols!

vanvan

higit pa sa kahit kanino..amen to that..

bless our soul mare...

...di dapat kakalimutan si god, syempre. Dapat mag thanks tayo sa kanya kasi pinalalakas niya loob natin sa pang araw-araw. tsaka god always have time for us, minsan tayo nawawalan ng time sa kanya... Kaya naman, dapat talagang pasalamatan si god sa lahat...

MIke Avenue

Ang Diyos Ama natin ay ating sandalan,
HIndi niya tayo maaaring kalimutan,
Kahit lagi tayong mayroong kasalanan,
Ibibigay pa rin ang kapatawaran.

nakakatouch tlga yung mga ganitong klase ng video. sobrang nakakpagreflect ako. feeling ko ang sama sama kong tao, na wala ng pag-asa pero kapag nakakapanood ako ng ganitong vdeo, naaalala kong hindi pla ako nag-iisa.

jhosel

superG: yea. tama. me too. Siya parating karamay ko whether in glory or in pain.. haiz.

marlon: haha. siguro nga we have our different views tungkol sa Kanya. anyhow, we still believe in 'Someone'. yun ang mas importante dun.

vanvan: yea. god bless everyone!

hidden: correct. di lang dapat when we need him tayo lalapit sa Kanya but always.

mike: amen. so true.

grace: yea. kaya nga gusto ko rin ganitong mga videos. nakakpagreflect ka. haiz.

a i s a :)

I can't exactly remember where and when i had read this letter but I still remember the feelings it gave me.. super na-touched ako nun, and I realized something.. Father God should never be taken for granted.. You should have thanked Him for everything you've received and will be receiving soon..

Lam naman natin na anu man mang pagsubok ang harapin natin, kakayanin, basta humingi lang tayo ng tulong sa kanya..

Minsan kxe, pag masaya tayo, pag nabibili na natin lahat ng gusto natin, walang problema na dumadating, dumadating tayo sa point na nakakalimutan na natin xa.. Hindi man lang tayo nakakapagpasalamat sa mga ibinigay nia.. Sana marealize natin na kahit simpleng Thank You Father GOD, sobrang saya na NIA...

jhosel

yup tama aisa.. 'ask and you will receive' - nakalimutan ko lang kung anong verse.

we should be thankful in glory or in pain. kasi binibigay sa atin yan for a reason. haiz.
