I’m so excited to vote this 2022 election. My chosen candidate has a great reputation and qualification to fit the highest power in this country. I’ve seen the rallies and support. I’ve seen transformation brought by this political brand. This will change to course of history. Unfortunately, my mother in law was admitted in the hospital in Manila so I can’t vote. We spend the first week of May preparing her for her surgery. This is the first time I missed out the presidential election.
Nevertheless, I waited for the results. Then it came. The results are in. And it was disappointing. I was hurt. I can’t believe what just happened. My heart sank. I want to shut myself from social media. There are lots of things running in my mind. Its one of those days that I don’t want to go through. The following days will be rough for me. I know I can be all gloomy. I need to lift me up. I had to. This morning, I did three things:
This is the day I’m picking up my in law from the hospital. She had her brain surgery last Friday. Thank you for all you prayers and financial support for my Mama.
Anyways, enjoy these freebie to start your week.

Anyways, Here’s some great quotes I got from a book I recently finished, Surviving the Trenches by Joe Barnard published by Christian Focus Publications.

“As Christians, we can never measure our potential by our experience.Past failure is never an accurate gauge for future progress. The reason for this is because the strength of the Christian life is found in Christ, not the self.”
As a Christian who is looking for resources that will help us as individuals and as a member of a church we need something that is completely saturated with the Gospel. The Gospel is the factor not just to save us from our sins but also drive us into action. The Gospel compel us to reach out to this lost world to give answers filled with hope. We are not just to give answers that spells apologetics but answers that will cater to other needs. Due to the changing times and culture, we find ourselves gravitating to resources that are effective and concise. Which might be a challenge to authors that carries a weighty message. Conveying it in a short volume might steal the essentials needed to connect the message to those who are in need.
Previously I posted on my Facebook an article from Tim Challies blog that made theology geeks everywhere shout for joy. The title of the article is “A Secret Way to Kick-Start Your Theological Library” in which he gave tips on how to create a digital library without breaking the bank. Tim listed links of free downloadable theology journals from different seminaries or organizations. He even includes a link on how to use Evernote to save and catalog those fine resources. I already checked those journals and I can attest that they are great resources considering that they are free. So if you don’t want to buy expensive theology book, this article will give you the best alternative..
In every ministry there will always be flaws. No matter how good the method or program it administers, there will be some shortcomings. We are finite beings and sinners. No ministry is foolproof. It is by God’s grace that He allows us to work on a ministry. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t address those we can see and polish it to be better. Specifically, in biblical counseling, as we engage to fellow image bearers and helping them to be connected to the Scriptures. Resources are welcome to fix what we are already practicing. And that’s were Consider Your Counsel steps in.
Finally, I have finished this great book on writing and now I want to share not just quotes from it but my impression of this volume. It’s took me a few months before I finish this due to the fact that I have to give way to other books that is short so I can have something to put on my blog. But as I lay aside this book and the parts I already read, the content still is stuck in my mind all throughout those time that’s why I was so eager to pick it up and finish it.
The introduction to Charitable Writing is of course essential but its a bit long. However, once you get out of the woods and it will be a smooth and enjoyable ride. Its a long read so expect it to be grueling but interesting journey.
