mind's seatTelling something about myself has always been a difficult task. I don’t know why. Perhaps I don’t know myself that much or maybe I’m just not that confident to say “I am that person”. But I guess it’s fair enough to tell my readers a little something about the author. I am Marmar Dagu-ob. I was born on the 4th of June in the year 1987 in the island of Sicogon which is in the Western Visayas region of the country Philippines. I am now residing in Bacolod City which is known as the city of smiles. I guess I am that guy who easily give up. I don’t have much confidence. I’m too shy, too scared, and too weak (physically and emotionally). You can say insecurity is my nick name. I didn’t finish school. I endured 3 years of Civil Engineering and then just gave up. I took jobs in help of friends and family. And I was a mediocre. And the saddest part is I keep silent when criticisms come and unfair treatment surrounds. I was both an underdog and a loser. But things changed when I came to know Jesus. I became positive and hopeful and fearless of the future. I became a happy person and mature. I’m no longer confused about the purpose of my life and the essence of my existence. My heart was filled with compassion for other people. And then desire of serving God consumed my heart that I keep thinking about it and prayed for it. Now I am a totally different person. I want to inspire, encourage and influence others. I want people to know Jesus Christ for everybody needs a savior.

The Thought

The purpose of this blog primarily is to influence minds to think positively.

This world is not perfect and culture has totally gone wrong.

This blog aims to provide opinions that are helpful in uplifting morality and promote Christ-like mentality.

Posts from this blog defy negativism and uphold human responsibility.

This blog is committed to helping readers find a sense of purpose and experience life at its fullest.

So if you are looking for an inspiration or ways to keep others inspired I hope this blog might be of great help.

I know we are surrounded with modern thinking and new ideas and principles that are perverted and drawn out from self-seeking desire.

I hope that in this blog you’ll find life bigger than you use to think and larger than what we were taught.

It is my desire and privilege if you share some posts from this blog to your friends.

I am definitely dreaming for the impossible —to change the world.

But no matter how impossible it may seem I’m going to try anyway and would love to die trying.

So as long as I’m alive I’m going to keep on blogging and blogging.

I don’t care how many people are reached, how many people read, or how many people like.

Even if this blog could only influence one mind that’s enough reason for me to keep blogging.

I’m proud to be a blogger and a blogger I shall always be.

It’s not popularity nor admiration nor applause I’m after.

I’m just here to blog and blog purposely even if I’m not good enough which I already knew.

I’m not a professional writer so it’s possible there will be haters and dislike-rs.

Even so I’m going to pursue this anyway because I believe somehow I can influence your mind.

The battle is in the mind.

So change starts in the mind.

May this blog be a tool of reconstructing culture and the repair of society.

This blog challenges you to rethink your mindset and find courage to stand out among your generation.

God bless you and may you meet Him soon.

Enjoy reading this blog.

Philippians 4:8

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is [a]lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, [b]dwell on these things.

A Coffee Can’t Be Lukewarm

 

A coffee can’t be lukewarm.
coffee cupWho would want a lukewarm coffee?
Some prefer an iced coffee while others are addicted to a hot coffee.
I am one of those who are addicted to coffee and I just can’t let a day goes by without having a coffee.
A day without coffee would be a very uncomfortable day.
I love coffee.
The other thing I love about coffee is getting to be around with people who enjoy coffee just like you do.
How did I begin to love coffee is a memorable one.
I was raised in a poor family.
When I was a child I had an asthma and I got to be in the hospital often.
My sickness deprived me of a lot of things that kids should be enjoying.
I didn’t have the chance to learn basketball and biking and the only choice I had is to stay home and experience repetitions of falling from the stairs.
I was physically weak and mentally confused with what on earth did I exist for.
That part of my story has nothing to do with coffee.
Here’s where the coffee comes in.
In our place poor families don’t have hotdogs, or egg, or bacon, or corned beef for breakfast.
What we have is plain coffee that goes with a spoon.
What’s the spoon for?
The spoon is used to scoop rice soaked in the cup of coffee.
So that was what we call breakfast.
On my high school years I was already living with my father’s older sister.
Their lifestyle was a bit better than ours so what I had for breakfast then was coffee and bread.
And that’s how I became familiar with coffee.
When I went to college I had to stay late to study and coffee was there to keep me awake.
When I became a christian most pastors I met were also coffee drinkers.
Then I learned to love coffee.
More stories are told, more ideas are discussed, more plans are laid while the coffee is hot.
I have never met a person who enjoys a lukewarm coffee.

Stained glass at St John the Baptist's Anglica...

Stained glass at St John the Baptist’s Anglican Church http://www.stjohnsashfield.org.au, Ashfield, New South Wales. Illustrates Jesus’ description of himself “I am the Good Shepherd” (from the Gospel of John, chapter 10, verse 11). This version of the image shows the detail of his face. The memorial window is also captioned: “To the Glory of God and in Loving Memory of William Wright. Died 6th November, 1932. Aged 70 Yrs.” (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

To make sense with this article let me shift your attention from coffee to Christianity.
If you’re a christian have you thought about how you intend to live your life?
When you sing the words like “I love you Lord” how much do you really love  Him?
When you utter phrases like “Lord I give you my heart” or “Jesus I believe in You and I will go to the ends of the earth”, how much of your heart are you really giving and how willing are you to lay down your life for the sake of others?
Liking Jesus is easy for us christians but do we actually want to be like Him? 


Can we truly abide in Him and in His word and never desert Him?
Are we still following Him even when it hurts.
How much are you willing to sacrifice simply because you love Him and you want others to love Him too?
Are you comfortable “christian”?
Would you be willing to step out and obey Him no matter what the cost?
Does your heart break for others?
Or are you just so concerned about your own future, your dreams, your retirement, your savings, and all the pleasure you could get?
Are you living to the fullest right now?
Are you living in Him or are you so secured with your job, your wealth, your treasure, or your insurances.
Are you truly in love with Him?
If you are then have you done something crazy to express that love?
Will you open your heart to Him?
Will you take time to listen to Him?
I’m not here to give you a to-do list.
My only challenge to you is that you will live how God really wants you to live.
And the only way to do that is to let Him rule over you.
My hope for you is that you can attest that God spoke to you and that He has shown you His power.
It is my prayer right now as I’m writing this last sentence that God will be glorified in you.
