Motivations are very important, these are the things that matter to God, no matter how big or how presentable our actions might be, if our motivation is wrong...then it will not glorify God. Sadly, a lot of Christians in our generation are inside the church, maybe serving inside the church...but they have the wrong motivation....
1.) Some serve because of benefits, in exchange of their service, the church gives them benefits. Tuition fee for their children, free food, etc. . These people can't be seen anymore once the benefit is gone.
2.) Some serve so that they could become famous. Maybe they are running for a position in the church or in the government. When they get to know more people, they will have more votes.
3.) Some serve so that their business would bloom. They go to church and serve but they sell their products underground, they hit two birds in one stone....but God isn't glorified.
4.) Some, like pastors, serve because they are given a salary, but once they stopped receiving salary from the church, they also stop serving.
This is reality and this is something that we should think about.....are we serving because it is in a way saying "thank you" to the Creator who saved us through the blood of Christ? or because we can take advantage of the church?

This game is created by the same maker of candy crush and are both addictive! Cute fruits and vegetables are everywhere in your screen and twitching and moving to give you a lively game. The tasks becomes more difficult as the game progress. The power - ups are entirely different from candy crush but that's the reason why it's a different game right? In comparison to candy crush, I believe the sounds are better. It gives you the mood to play rather than the background music of candy crush which makes some people sleepy. Also, when you get a set of 3 or 4 of the same character it makes a cute sound. The most important is that it's free!!! Anyone who loves candy crush will surely love this game as well.!! If you are bored or if you have an extra time try out this game and enjoy hours and hours of fun!!!

The 5 best IPAD Oganizer app for me:
I didn't buy my ipad to play games only. Although it is one of the best gadget to play games with. I noticed that if I can transform my ipad into one powerful organizer, then I can bring my ipad and keep track of all the things I needed to do at the same time, have fun! So after scouting for different apps, here are some of the apps that I found very precious in organizing your life.
1.) Calendars 5
This App can really help you in organizing you schedules. It has a Year, month week and day view so as to give the user options for their reference Making a schedule is now better because of this app!!
This is a note collector app in which you create notes and file it. You can use text and also use your own handwriting, also you can use this to keep your passwords because you can create a locked folder to secure your files. You can also use this to record your voice, and send it in different formats so that you won't miss anything important.Worth it!!!
Tired of the usual journal or diary that you are using? then use Max journal. A journal/diary that can help you keep track of what happened to your life. You can also create a different folders to distinguish maybe work from friends, etc. The interface is excellent and the back - up is good. You won't need another journal recording app once you have this.
4.) Pocket Expense
Losing you money without remembering where you spend it? Pocket Expense app might help you!! I don’t really know how to explain the app because it has everything!!! From recording your expense, organizing your budget, checking for unpaid utilities…anything!!! It’s awesome!!!
This app organizes everything!!! Your Office, your house, your books, gadgets, even friends!! Hahaah! Try it! This app also has a recording system so that you can keep track of things you lost, or destroyed or lend to a friend.
All of these apps here has a cost and I've been using these apps for a long time. I don’t want to waste my money on different apps that functions the same. My suggestion? Buy these apps and you won’t look for another app in the future. Happy Apping!! J

In the last quarter of the year 2013, the Philippines suffered from 2 big tragedies, namely, the 7 .0 Magnitude earthquake that happened in Bohol last October 15, 2013 and the Typhoon Yolanda that almost destroyed the entire place of Tacloban last November 2013. In these kind of event, people who saw these kind of tragedies sometimes will make precautionary measures in order to prevent them from experiencing the same, some go beyond the norm, some cannot sleep because of worry. I am not against precautionary measures but sometimes, we forget to trust God. There is this understanding that if it is already your time (to leave earth). Then whatever you do and no matter how many precautionary measures you make. It won't make any difference, because it is your "time". But if it is not yet your time, then the reverse is true, no matter how many tragedies or calamities you experience, you will survive....because it is not yet your "time". Having said that, I believe it could help us not to worry too much but trust in God who alone is sovereign, who alone is "in control" of all the things happening.. and everything that happens....happens for a reason.
