“Moving On, Moving Forward”

Happy new year to everyone! It is already year 2017! Yahooo! 🙂 Praise God that we are all still here breathing, and yes, you …. you are so BLESSED because you are LOVED by GOD! 🙂

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
    for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness. – Lamentations 3:22 -23 (NIV)

The Lord’s great love and compassion never fail each day and as we all face this new year, I pray that whatever hopes, dreams, goals or plans that you have this year, it will all come to pass, all in God’s will.

Moving on… Moving forward. I guess, we have all that hang-over feelings over all the get-together, Christmas parties, weddings, events or just simply having your dream vacation, for the past holiday season… it’s okay to reminisce and look back on those happy & positive memories that you have collected the past days, — it’s part of the cycle — but NOW is your TIME to MOVE ON & MOVE FORWARD in achieving your dreams and make it to a reality. NOW is the start of your FUTURE and whatever you do today will definitely bear either a good fruit or a bad fruit. So make the most out of what you can do today to make you a better person, a  great lover of His word, and of course, a doer also of His plans for your life. You may have a long list right now of your faith goals or the things you want to accomplish this year, but keep in mind that, it is the WHOLE PROCESS in attaining your goal, all of it matters. It will definitely make you grow and realize a lot of things in this world.

MOVE ON.. don’t stay in your past. Just like what the Bible says … “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! – 2 Corinthians 5:17″

So as you face this new year, bring along with you the hope that God gives you each day. Focus more on Him and not to the mountains that you are facing now.

MOVE FORWARD..enjoy each pacing that God has put you NOW. You may ask me, “how will I enjoy if my situation right now is really full of uncertainty?” .. we’ll LOOK unto GOD, He is the ONLY SECURITY that you will have on this earth. It can never be found to some material things, or the change of your status from single, to in a relationship,  to married, or  maybe “it’s complicated, or even having all the riches of this world — MOVE forward and take hold of His word in all seasons for this year. You can never go wrong when you are at His side.

As we all choose to MOVE ON & MOVE FORWARD this 2017, I pray that you will all be encourage to pursue Him even more this year! Don’t let the excitement die down because the Christmas feels is already done, let’s all choose to have that joy that comes from the Lord so that we can see & experience His purpose for our lives this year!

Happy new year again my dear readers! Enjoy your family time and I’ll see you again on my next blog! Stay tune 🙂

with much love,

Mrs, Piza 🙂


Submissive Obedience

Hello everyone! Before anything else, I just want to greet you all a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year! 🙂

I know… I know … I have not been updating  my blog site for the past four months ( or so .. I apologize .. and for this, I want to make it up to you all lol 🙂 Here is my latest blog… ka -ching 😀  ) but now I am here! I do hope that you are having a great time during this holiday season!

What I want to share for you as I end my blogging for this year is about — Submissive Obedience — big word! 🙂 You see, it takes practice to submit and obey all at the same time… and nobody says that it will be as easy as eating your favorite chocolates and then whoala… you are happy!  🙂  Submission just like what the Bible says

 Submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ. – Ephesians 5:21 ESV — it is a commandment of God so therefore, our hearts must be willing to obey Him.

In marriage for example, my husband and I have a lot of ups and downs – we do have some misunderstandings, and sometimes it’s hard for me to submit but then again, God has always reminded me that my husbands is not my opponent, but instead, he is my team mate — and as a team, we should work as one, body, mind and soul. It is easier said than done I know, especially if you’re husband has a high belief attitude lols. but thank God for the grace of God that I can see the beauty of submission. In terms if obedience, I admit that I am hard headed and I must always be reminded that it is more  brave to listen up and don’t talk too much about the problems, instead find solution to it. God is still working on me and on us — as a married couple, we are not perfect — in fact we don’t even come close near to perfect — but we praise God for the learning, correction, revelation, joy, grace, love, hope and faith that He has given us for this year!

Obedience is just like what the Bible says:

 Teach me to do your will, for you are my God! Let your good Spirit lead me on level ground! – Psalm 143:10 ESV 

I pray this for all of us that we may have a heart to follow His leading always. As we end this year 2016, let’s move forward to a new year which is 2017, and have a heart of obedience to God.  You may have a lot of failures, heartaches, breakthroughs, or even answered prayers this year, and sometimes you might caught yourself asking … ” have I obeyed you God? In  the way that You desire me to obey you? Or I have chose my own path? Your obedience to Him is not measured by all the YES” and AMEN” or the BIG BREAKTHROUGHS that came your way but it’s the overall seasons that you have experienced. It’s the fruit of the Holy Spirit that  was given to you, that enables you to experience the unspeakable joy in your heart!

Anyway, have a happy 2017 my dear readers! Thank you for taking time to read my blogs and hoping that I am able to share a encouragement, reminder, smile or happiness in your heart as I allow you to have a sneak peak in my life through this. May God shine above anything and anyone in our lives.

See you next year!


Love, Mrs. Piza 🙂










In 24 Hours… Make Your Life Count



Hello my dear readers! How are you all? I’ve missed pressing on this 🙂  It’s been awhile since I posted on my site. I feel like I just have a lot of memories the past months. Finally, I am here again, hopefully I can bring a little light to this world through this.


As we enter the September month and yes, it’s the start of the long Christmas celebration here in the Philippines… have you ever wonder, what have you been up to for the past months and in the coming months? … May I ask you this, how do you spend each 24 hours that God has given you each day?  I guess all of us are so busy with a lot of stuffs, — juggling your time between family, friends, too much preoccupied with our personal desires/ dreams and even work — these things usually get so much of our time in this earth. And some people also, sad to say, spend their time just feeding themselves with too much anger, hate, unforgiveness and just the very same old story of not really moving on because they cannot accept the fact that they have grown in all aspects and literally they’ve grew old 🙂 The times when we are too old to remember the things that makes  us laugh even in the simplest reason,  or really be grateful everyday because God has given you another chance to wake up today 🙂 So my question is… how do you spend your 24 hours and make it count huh? 🙂  I pray that each day, each of us will remember that, life is not a bed of roses always, but it is always our choice to make each day a very good day even if we are in the middle of chaos or stress. I know that it is easier said than done, but I pray that as you read this, you will be reminded that, 24 hours seems like too short for many but there’s another side of the coin, that — that 24 hours is the most precious time that they have prayed for or desire for.

” You do not even know what will happen tomorrow! What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. James 4:14

Make your life count because we only have one life to live 🙂


Until my next 🙂 God bless you everyone!


Love lots



Our Hongkong Adventure 2016

Hola everyone! The month of June is officially ending tomorrow and yes, we’re almost done for the first half of the year 2016! How cool and fast is that? 🙂 Praise the Lord for the first half of the year!


There’s has been so much going on in the Philippines and in fact, tomorrow, is the inauguration of the incoming President  Rodrigo Duterte ( is it going to be declared a public holiday or not tomorrow? let’s just wait and see for the official declaration within the day 🙂 )

And speaking of holiday, we just got back from a long vacation from Hongkong! We’re just really excited when we are there and we tried our best to collect and collect a lot of good memories together as husband and wife. It is one of our first goals to go out of the country as husband and wife, for us to experience traveling together in abroad for leisure/ vacation purposes/ relaxation purposes. And we definitely had a great time!  Just like what the Bible says: ” So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun.Ecclesiastes 8:15 “ … Indeed, we did it!  🙂


Location: At Sky100 🙂 The tallest building in Hongkong and the 7th highest building worldwide! 🙂 Truly, I feel the love on top 🙂 #melvinlourdytravels2016 #love #wheininhongkong #sky100 #wifehood #marriagegoals #relationshipgoals 🙂


I can’t count how many malls or how many tourist spots we had a chance to visit but to list a few,  these are as follows. I also indicated there some description of the places we visited so if you are planning to visit Hongkong, this places you can also check out! 🙂

  1. Hongkong Disneyland- Enter a magical kingdom inspired by fairy-tale dreams and explore 7 lands—Adventureland, Grizzly Gulch, Mystic Point, Toy Story Land, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland and Main Street, U.S.A.—filled with beauty, excitement and Disney Characters.
  2. Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car – one of Hong Kong’s premier attractions and, while not cheap, if you’re in town for a few days it really shouldn’t be missed. The big pull of the Ngong Ping Cable Car is the breathtaking views over the thick green peaks of Lantau and the shining South China Sea. At the top of the cable car ride awaits the amazing 110ft Tian Tan Giant Buddha, one of the biggest in the world.
  3. Sky100 – On the 100th floor of Hong Kong’s tallest building – the International Commerce Centre (ICC) – you’ll find sky100. This is the highest indoor observation deck in Hong Kong and offers visitors a stunning 360 degree bird’s-eye view of world-famous Victoria Harbour.
  4. Nathan Road – Probably Hong Kong’s most photographed street, Nathan Road is the showcase for the city’s iconic, neon advertising signs. Crammed in at every angle and hanging off every building, the signs are a testament to Nathan Road’s role as the commercial heart of Tsim Sha Tsui.
  5.  Victoria Harbour – is a natural landform harbour situated between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon in Hong Kong. The harbour’s deep, sheltered waters and strategic location on the South China Sea were instrumental in Hong Kong’s establishment as a British colony and its subsequent development as a trading centre.
  6. Harbour City –  a large shopping mall in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong. It is part of a series of office blocks and hotels. It comprises several parts: Marco Polo Hong Kong Hotel, Ocean Terminal, Ocean Centre (with 1980s retro decor), the Gateway and the Pacific Club Kowloon. The complex is located along the west side of Canton Road, stretching from the Star Ferry Pier in the south to China Hong Kong City in the north.
  7. Star Ferry  – a passenger ferry service operator and tourist attraction in Hong Kong.[1] Its principal routes carry passengers across Victoria Harbour, between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon
  8. Citygate Outlet – Hong Kong’s first—and only—outlet mall. Outlets in the mall currently offer year-round discounts of 30-70% on all merchandise. It is in Tung Chung, above Tung Chung MTR Station, which is the terminus of the Tung Chung Line.
  9. ISquare – The 31-storey complex offers 56,000 square meters of space, with renowned brands of Watches & Jewelry, Fashion & Accessories, Beauty & Health, Lifestyle & Entertainment, and Supermarket & Department Store located at the shopping podium
  10. Mongkok Ladies Market – The street probably started out as a street where the local women went shopping for bargain clothing, small household items, and stuff that typically women would shop for.
  11. Cheung Chau Island- southwest of Hong Kong Island. It is nicknamed the ‘dumbbell island (啞鈴島)’ due to its shape.
  12. Tung Wan Beach – when you visit here, you will feel that you are in Hawaii because it has this Hawaii beach vibes 🙂

And there, this is just a few of the places that we visited 🙂 What did we learn or get from this trip? We’ll it’s the memries that we can treasure and share to our children up to the future.  The world is too big to stay in one place and there is so much more to see and experience. We are just so thankful to God for this well time of enjoyment and relaxation.


So there, until my next blog fellas, I do hope that you are all encourage to go out there… make some good memories… and do not spend your time dealing with some negative thoughts  and just be thankful because God is always giving you a chance to go and have your very own adventure 🙂


God bless everyone! Love God above all 🙂

Love, Mrs Piza 🙂











Celebrating Our First Year Anniversary!

Hello! What’s up ? How’s your summer vacation and or trip so far? I hope you are all having a great time spending it with your loved ones. Our national election was over and while we are still waiting for the final result for the VP race, let me help you cool down as you read my blog today, it has nothing to do with politics, don’t worry 🙂 I just want to share that we reached our first year  anniversary last May 15, 2016! Yehey! 🙂  How time really flies so fast , and we’re just continually growing and learning from each other’s imperfections and still seeing the beauty of our imperfections and still choosing to commit this marriage to God.


Celebrating our 1st year Anniversary with the sea, sand, sun in an island 🙂

The LORD has done great things for us; We are glad. – Psalm 126:3

This year has been fuller than I ever imagined. God gave us a ridiculous amount of blessings, and a completely unanticipated number of adventures together. Marriage is so, so much easier–and just more plain magical than I expected. Basically it’s a lot of laughing and tickling and smooshy-face-hugs, with some crying and hugging it out. I can’t count the number of times I’ve looked at his beautiful all-mine face and just been floored by the fact that I have this–all this. There’s nothing quite like a person that’s half of you–that’s home to you. Holding each other and laughing uncontrollably together is maybe the best thing Jesus has ever given me. This first year has been an unimaginable blessing.
But at the same time, it’s been probably the most full of seeing the hurt and brokenness in the world.

Horrible news stories and gut-wrenching phone calls and tragedies in lives around us that seem impossible to know how to process. It makes me cling even tighter to this amazing best-friend-for-life–he reminds me of truth and God’s goodness when I can’t see it. I could never have imagined the amount of happiness I’d have right now–but I also could never have imagined the amount of serious-for-real life lessons – in the world around me.

We had a long way to go and we have a lifetime to embrace the wonderful life of being married! It is not an instant “happily- ever after” love story that we are after… we choose to live out and be thankful for what each day can offer to us, as husband and wife. Not to play the blame game but rather, pray together all the more when conflicts arise, talk gently, and choose to find solutions to whenever we have misunderstandings. Being married is choosing the road to take together, and making each other a priority next to God. Marriage is a gift from God that needs to be protected, fervently prayed for, be thankful for because being married is a beautiful blessing and not a burden. We chose to speak life and not curse each other because we know that both of us, has a specific calling to do for us to let this marriage grow and be strong as the years go by.

I am a continuous wife in progress and same goes with my husband Melvin, who is still a husband work in progress – we know that for a fact that we can’t do anything for our marriage without God at the center and guidance of it all. I am just so thankful that my husband has been a reminder of that, because his patient and persistent and gentle love doesn’t waver. It’s all in the power of God’s grace and always have a forgiving heart every waking day that is ready to love again and again.

This year has been incredible, once-in-a-lifetime–a first-year-of-marriage to hold tight to when things are harder and more complicated. “Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity”.   Colossians 3:14.  This verse, always helps us to see each other as a gift from God, even if sometimes, we have misunderstandings or conflicts.

Praise God for this one year! Looking forward for a lifetime of anniversaries with you my love, my love! I just love you even more today than the day we start this journey to forever with our “ I Do’ ‘s.


Thank you Lord, All glory to You! 🙂

Until my next blog fellas!

Take Charge! #Discpleship2016 #Charge :)

Hello my dear readers 🙂 Last Saturday, all roads lead to SM Mall of Asia for a  Leadership Convergence that has the goal to empower and encourage all the leaders and the up coming leaders to continue to ‘Honor God. Make Disciples.’


This we’re our ID’s and the 21 days Devotional that was given away for us during the conference 🙂 So have you started to flip your own devotional? Be excited and focus your eyes on Jesus more:)

During the whole conference, a lot of things are running inside my head, I was anticipating to see a lot of friends around and indeed, we saw a a lot. It is really good to be in one place, with the people that has the same heartbeat, and that’s to be humble to hear from God and feel His presence and be filled with the Holy Spirit. 

 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria,and to the ends of the earth.” – Acts 1:8

And when I heard this verse, one thing that was impressed to me was,  it’s missions. All about His missions. As all the pastors are starting to give their encouragement, prayer, and their points to remember for us, I started to ask myself this… do I spend a quality  time knowing His mission for my life? We’ll, in this fast changing world, with all our busy schedules,  it is good to know that we have something like this to help us recharge and re-align ourselves to the Father and be really filled with the Holy Spirit.

A reminder that God gave me through this leadership convergence is this, ‘ we should not be mystical, and let’s be missional 🙂  Ring a bell?  I repeat, we should not be mystical, let’s be missional.

How can you say that you’re being too mystical? For example, you are becoming too mystical when you always say to your friends or the people around you this .. ” I have this prayer request … blah blah blah .. and I know God will grant this request ..by FAITH 🙂 ” And that’s the catch, by faith! 🙂 But when does this phrase becomes a trap and being too mystical?  It is when you just say it through words and that’s it. period.  You see, when you say …” … BY  FAITH!” … God hears it so  what will you do after you declare that?  Of course, do something about it 🙂 Don’t be so mystical that God will give you this and that without you stretching your bones and all your God given gifts and talents. 

Yes, God can and God will perform miracles in our life that can come in different shapes and sizes and in different seasons, but still, God wants to see you work your way with His guidance and leadership of course. Stop being so lazy because it will not bring you from point A to point B when you just stare there and or rely to people around you. God also wants to see His children how can they achieve their God-given desires into reality. You need to start up. And just like what Ptr. Ferdie said.. “Take Charge!” Believe that right now, wherever God puts you, it’s your unique mission to make His name known. Take Charge and yes “Take Heart” also because He has already overcome this world. You do not have something to fear.

Once again, we, as followers of Jesus, we need to always check our hearts, motives and intentions in everything that we do, say or act, be sure to always ask yourself this… does this honor God?  For whatever the answer of that, the fruit of the Holy spirit will enable you to do everything all by God’s grace.




These are some of the photos during the Conference  🙂

So my dear readers, I encourage you to move in a natural way, not in a very mystical way because God is a missional God, not a magician or a genie in a bottle 🙂

Until next time, continue to follow Jesus ❤


Love, Mrs. Piza 🙂



Loving God & Life More At 31 :)

So how does it feel to be at the age of 31? That’s the first question that pops in my mind when I know and feels that this year will be a sign of my last day in the calendar Lol 🙂 

Yes, I am 31 years old and I am proud of it 🙂 Why because it’s only once in a lifetime that you’ll get to embrace this age. Nothing to be ashamed or nothing to deny when someone ask me what is my age is. I thank God for this new year that He has given me. Another year to dream big, aim higher, new lands to conquer, a lot of fresh and new faces to see, prayers to utter to God, and a lot of faith to get by through this fast changing world.

How did I celebrate my birthday? A lot of surprises happened that day! I never thought that it will be like that. Thank you LORD for showing me how much you love me from the beginning of my 31 years of existence.

1 birthday

Surprised by my best friends, Uchie & her husband AJ, and Glo 🙂 Thanks my love for doing this! They are my gems! 🙂

birthday 4

And here we are! The 3 best friends! I’ve known this two since I was 13 😀 And now I am 31 I thank God for them because in all seasons, we chose to love, cherish, accept and really laugh out loud for whatever changes that we encounter in this lifetime! Cheers to more years! 🙂

I just want to encourage everyone that God is there in all the seasons of your life. If you feel that He has left you, or maybe He does not hear your prayer requests, again and again, choose to love Him more.

In my 31 years of existence… these are the life lessons or take home that I always live out:

  1. Being Thankful – -1 Thessalonians 5:18 “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”                                                                             I’ve learned and re learn the art of being thankful and grateful in every season. There are times that it’s hard for me to grasp what is happening or why is it not happening in my life now but again and again, God, in His sovereign power, always remind me to be always grateful and thankful for everything in anything because I am blessed. The fact that I am still breathing,  and I have a food to eat, it’s more than enough to be grateful in each passing day. Sometimes, these vital things we take for granted because we are too consumed to get this and get that, or I want this or that… 🙂  Hey, are you healthy?  if so… be thankful! It’s priceless to have a healthy body my dear readers 🙂

2. Conflicts and Resolutions – Proverbs 12:18 “There is one who speaks rashly like the thrusts of a sword, But the tongue of the wise brings healing”.

In this life. Nothing is perfect. I too, have a lot of shortcomings, and I am far from being perfect. I know that for a fact. And in this life, I’ve encounter too many conflicts that sometimes bothers me or sometimes, I just choose to just shrug it off because it is out of my control already. I am surrendering those kind of moments to God. I let go and let God give me peace. Conflicts is just there. And when it is there and it started to give you worries, it’s time for you to take a break… inhale and exhale and see the bigger picture of the situation. It is not about you, or me but when conflicts arise, again and again, I go back to how God loves me and accepts me as His daughter. I’ve learned that in this life, people will really come and go, you will have conflicts but in the end, find in the deepest core of your heart the word ” LOVE” , “TRUST” and “FORGIVENESS” It is the Lord Jesus Christ who is the perfect example of the one who give it to us FREELY without expecting anything in return. In this life, always be on the look out and proactively share these 3 words and actively live it out. With this, your life can be much more lighter and more joyful!


3. A Joyful Heart is Always Good – “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength. -Proverbs 17:22

Let’s all face it, as we all grow old… we sometimes forget to laugh and be joyful even the simplest to the most complex things that this life can offer. Hey, hey, hey, may I just remind you that being so serious in this life can sometimes give you head ache? Hahaha! So why not, smile and or even laugh 🙂 Life is too short to spend it with a frowning face is in it? God has created and given you this life for you to explore and enjoy!  So do not forget to smile or laugh please 🙂 Now your asking me, what if I have a lot of bills to pay, I don’t have a job, I still do not have my answered prayer’ or I still don’t have a suitor, or boy friend or girlfriend or even a spouse? or even a baby?   We’ll all these things shall be added unto you if you completely trust God, young men and young women 🙂  And may I remind you that you live this life not to look forward to what you can get from God or from the people around but what you can give back to God and to the people around you.


In this life, it is not all about what  you can get, or what benefits you the most…. it is more than that. Life is about giving back all the glory and honor to God 🙂 Life is all about giving and sharing your talents, skills, resources, time, effort and of course love in anything, in everything or to everyone that has touched your life. With that, you can truly say, you have lived a joyful and yet meaningful life. Do not let stress control you but instead, stress your stress’ LOL and let go and let God 🙂


Life is too short! Enjoy your season, embrace your trials, learn from your mistakes, get up and dream and make it a reality because God has only the best plans for you! Stay focus as you grow old.

And as for me, I am 31 years old…. thank you Lord! Indeed, you are faithful! Cheers to another years of growing,going, and glowing gracefully with and for the Lord! 🙂

Ciao! Until next time my dear readers! 🙂 May the good Lord protect, guard and bless you all abundantly way beyond your imagination! 🙂


birthday 3

Love, Mrs. Piza 🙂
