How do you feel about this story?


We are in the fourth month of the year yet all hell already broke loose as Coronavirus swept the world with infection and death. This pandemic has shut down airports, restaurants, hotels, churches, transportation and other businesses. It brought down the economy of the super power nations. We are now seeing that even the United States of America is being shaken too. 

This gunless and swordless war is shaking everything on earth.

This gunless and swordless war is shaking everything on earth whether we believe it or not. We are in the war zone today. Realizing this, we got our mind and our focus narrowed back to God. What is happening God? Where are we going from this? Are we seeing a breakdown of businesses in Iloilo City after this pandemic? With this premise, I want to bring in what I believe God has inspired me to share in this season. This is for anyone who has the same hope as mine. Otherwise, do not continue reading from here.

With what is happening around us, I am getting questions from all sides whether what Iloilo City will look like after this coronavirus is done with us. When these questions came knocking in my inbox, all I know is that I don’t have much money; no silver, and gold in my pocket; no car in my garage. But I have Jesus, my hope of glory. And such as I have, I will also give to someone. Someone like you who is reading this at the moment.

Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you… – Acts 3:6 

This pandemic has brought Iloilo City to a point that no matter what political party you belong to, what denomination you believe in, what family name you were born with, how much you are earning, how many cars you own, how many businesses you are running, we are all equal. We all need God at this point. And we need to bring in the nature of God in this crisis. 

In the midst of a pandemic, we are all equal. We all need God.

Heart-warmingly, I am encouraged that Iloilo has brought down unity among us beyond borders of all sorts. The compassion to help and contribute to the solution is more than evident. Donations from the public to the private sectors are coming like a flood. I tell you, when I saw this, I said to God in my prayer, “Lord, these donation drives, helping one another, is a seed of Iloilo to its future full of uncertainties. We will do what we can do now to help. Yet this seed will grow. It will bear fruits and every Ilonggo will eat of it.” And in all these, we will give God the glory!

The Lord the Shepherd of His People

A Psalm of David.

23 The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the [c]still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
-Psalm 23
