Prayer when overwhelmed

Sharing this prayer for everyone who feels overwhelmed, when problems pile up and worries seem endless.

Prayer when you feel overwhelmed.

…………………………………………………………………

Oh God Almighty Father,

I seek You as I feel completely  overwhelmed.

I do not have the time nor the energy

to sustain myself or my life.

There’s just too much…

Please help me Lord.

Show me your hand, in control of all things.

Let me find rest in You.

Help me to trust You for anything, for everything.

For You alone are sovereign.

You own time itself, my only refuge, my hope.

So, I stop at this moment,

and seek You.

I can feel the breeze of Your merciful love,

Helping me carry my cross & survive each day.

I rise up strong again,

in Christ,

and face the world,

my path straight and firm.

With faith in Your Son,

whose great name I pray,

Amen.

Beauty in a budget v.2

Let’s face it, not all can afford high end make up! But, being money savvy doesn’t mean you’d be ugly. Praise heavens for beauty brands that now cater to budget conscious ladies. Aside from their pocket friendly prices, some products come in cute and earth friendly packaging which I personally prefer 🙂

Here are the beauty-in-a-budget brands you should check out;

  • Onsaemeein – a brand from South Korea that makes great moisturizers with price as low as P399. Their bestsellers ~ Perfect Moisture Cream, Milky Whitening Soft Cream & Lumiere Gold Cream.

 

  • Boomdeah Dah – another Korean brand that is also very inexpensive. The Everyday mask retails at P30 each and they have great skincare line, too!

  • Ellana Minerals – Proudly “Pinoy” and the first in the Philippines that offers mineral based products in affordable prices. They promise to give poreless and complete coverage with their organic and cruelty-free makeup. Their popular items are Mineral powder (multi-use) & Loose mineral powder foundation.

  • Y.E.T – Stands for Yes, Enjoy Time! Another K-beauty entry that was just recently established but became highly popular among the trendy and fashionable. It’s now included in the top 10 cosmetic brand in Korea. They have the cutest Sheet Masks in the market, addressing the basic skin problems like dry skin, ageing, and enlarged pores or oiliness. 

  • LadyKin – another successful K-beauty Company that was launched the same year as that of Y.E.T which was 2012. And it’s mission is to provide high quality but affordable skincare and beauty line. Top selling items are Confidence Nude Face Cream, Shadow Stick, Snail Cream, Real Like Innateline Eyebrow, & many others.

Sinulog – Pit Senyor!

Sinulog is by far the grandest festival I’ve ever experienced in the Philippines. It is an annual cultural and religious festival held every 3rd week (Sunday) of January.

Aside from its religious significance, Sinulog is also famous for street parties and the grand street parade that practically lasts the whole day.

“Sinulog” coined from the Cebuano word – Sulog which means “like water current” that describes its forward-backward steps. According to historical accounts, the first Sinulog dance was danced by Hara Humamay (Rajah Humabon’s wife). It was when they received the Sacred Image of Child Jesus (Sto. Nino) – a gift from the explorer Ferdinand Magellan – that the queen danced in joy with the other natives following her. 

I will post some photos I’ll be taking this Sunday – the day of Sinulog itself. 

 

Here are the route maps of Sinulog to guide our festival goers;

New Year’s Prayer

Lord, my Father God, the past year may have been very tough for me and my family. But we thank you for a brand New Year.

We ask You Lord, to bless us our family and friends as we begin this new year with optimism and renewed hope in You.

In the past year, You have seen Lord our failures, saddened by our weaknesses, hurt by our sins and celebrated in successes.

And as the New Year unfolds, let us remember the past year and ask for forgiveness for all our sins and for our actions that may have caused you pain and disappointments.

Forgive us Father, for the many times we have forgotten to pray or to thank you. Help us to realize our mistakes and heed lessons from them.

Lord, help us to focus our eyes on you especially in times of trials. Strengthen us, please give us courage, heal us Lord from all the afflictions that’s making it difficult for us to keep our faith.

We pray that You bless this New Year with Your mercy and presence in all that we do, in Jesus’ name.

Amen

Prayer to Keep Going

Prayer to Keep Going. 

Dear Father, when the pressure mounts and the troubles of this world begin to close in, give me the grace to return to You.

All I need is your loving mercy.

Never leave me Lord…

Even I don’t feel You there, at least let me understand that you are there.

Give me strength and fight a good fight.

Let your grace allow me to believe in the only one that gives me Truth and Clarity despite the pain and struggle.

And if it be your will, fill my heart and soul with the overwhelming Joy that only your Spirit gives.

For your are my hope, my strength and my refuge.

In Jesus’ name.
Amen
