Do You Feel Hopeless About Your Family and Finances?

Doctor Guido Estorco felt this way when he failed to sell their supply of vaccine shots. As a result, he lost over 200,000 pesos!

Throughout the pandemic, Guido has been selling vaccines, and although his sales weren’t always consistent, this was the first time he suffered such a significant loss.

His relationship with his family also suffered because of this, especially with his eldest son, who blamed God for their family’s hardship.

“It seemed impossible for us to be reconciled,” he shared.

Does your financial struggle also affect your relationship with your family? Read more and discover what happened to Guido!

Guido remained steadfast in his commitment to God even in the midst of hopelessness. He knew this was another test God would ultimately carry him through. He put his faith in the Lord and prayed earnestly for his relationship with his son to be restored.

Additionally, he never stopped making his monthly pledge of Php 1,000 to CBN Asia.

And despite the fact that he had less money, he raised the amount he donated to Php 7,000.

He shared, “Giving has always been a habit of mine.”

God has been working in Guido’s life all along, unbeknownst to him. The Lord gave him an opportunity to turn his life around.

One day, a client approached him and asked him to sell Php 12 million worth of vaccines! This was Guido’s largest transaction to date.

He quickly sold the vaccines and went from being deeply in debt to becoming a millionaire!

His success changed not only his financial situation but also the heart of his son.

Their relationship was restored, and they grew closer. What’s more, his son’s faith in God grew!

“Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would happen to me,” he shared.

Now, Guido is still faithfully giving to the ministry and living his life for God.

If you’re facing challenges in your family and finances, remain faithful to God. Breakthrough is coming! Hold on to the Word of God in 1 Corinthians 2:9,

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him.”

Remember that God is greater than any circumstance. He can change your life’s seemingly unfavorable moments to your benefit. So, don’t lose hope!

During difficult times, Guido held on to Jesus as his hope, and you, too, can have this relationship with God.

You can also donate to CBN Asia and be a blessing to others.

Is Debt Ruining Your Relationship?

Borrowing money looks like an easy solution, but if it piles up, you might find yourself drowning in bills and losing good relationships. Alice Clamosa almost lost her husband because of her debts.

Alice is a full-time housewife, who solely depends on her husband’s financial support. Since 2 of their 3 children are still studying, their expenses always exceed their budget. This is a very stressful situation for a mother like Alice, especially since she carries this burden alone because her husband is working overseas.

She decided that she needed to do something about their problem, so she borrowed money from her friends. Alice kept this a secret from her husband.

“I did not want him to worry,” she recalled.

Their bills were paid, and her children’s tuition fees were taken care of, but her debts gradually increased until she could not pay them anymore.

Eventually, her husband found out. Because the money they owed was too big, their arguments over the phone became worse, and they kept blaming one another.

Because of these fights, they ended up separating.

“My world fell apart,” These were her words during the separation.

She knew that she needed to find a job to sustain herself and her family. So, she pushed her chances and applied for work. Not long after, she was accepted as a staff in a fast-food chain.

Just as she thought that everything is going to be fine now, the fast-food chain closed 2 days after she started working. Alice started questioning God.

“Lord, if you really answered my prayer to have a job, why did you take it back?”

As she was watching television, The 700 Club Asia was showing a story about a broken family that was restored by God. Alice did not hesitate to pray along with the host. She was uplifted to know that through God’s help, there’s still a chance to fix her and her husband’s relationship.

After she experienced God’s love through the show, she connected with CBN Asia’s Prayer Center and consistently called to share her burdens and prayer requests.

One day, as she talked to God about her struggles, Alice and her husband had a heart-to-heart talk that helped them understand each other’s side. This led to the restoration of their relationship.

“We’re okay now. Our relationship is smooth-sailing, and he always calls during his free time,” Alice shared.

Alice happily expressed her gratitude, “I am thankful to CBN Asia Prayer Center and The 700 Club Asia. They always give me verses that help to strengthen my faith.”

Along with that blessing, her 2 children both received a college scholarship that really helped appease their financial struggle. Her firstborn passed the board exam and is a registered Engineer, who now helps lessen their debts.

In abundance or lack, Alice believes that God’s love and care are always enough. He will be there to sustain His children in their needs. Her reminder to all the people who are struggling right now is this, “No matter how difficult your situation is, put your trust in the Lord and never lose hope.”

Depressed? Anxious? Physically Ill?

Public school teacher Edilyn De Lima had little time to be all that. But in 2014, she noticed an abnormal lump under her left breast. She had a feeling that it was a sign of something worse.

“It was very painful; it felt like it was going to explode,” Edilyn recalled. “I was thinking, ‘God, what is this cyst? Is this cancer?’”

Edilyn started to feel depressed, anxious, and physically ill, but because of extreme fear, she chose to keep her condition to herself.

Do you also keep your problems to yourself?

Are you also overpowered by fear and worry?

Edilyn could relate to you. She thought that she had no time to succumb to her trials—she has a family to support and a class to take care of. She couldn’t put her loved ones into this. So, for six long years, Edilyn battled silently, hoping that it will soon go away.

But she was wrong.

Her condition did not improve, in fact, it worsened. Until this year, the pain and swelling in her left chest became unbearable. Edilyn could not take the excruciating pain any longer and rushed herself to the hospital.

Right there, she was confronted by the truth that she has been avoiding for so long—her doctors discovered that there is a cancerous cyst growing in her left breast.

“The doctor told me that I need to undergo a biopsy. My mother did not want me to undergo biopsy as she feared it might cause complications,” Edilyn shared.

She has gone through numerous trials in life, but nothing prepared her for the fear, anxiety, and confusion that were caused by the malignant tumor spreading in her body.

In times like these, where do you turn to for hope and comfort?

In this desperate time, Edilyn experienced God’s comforting love through Tanglaw, CBN Asia’s devotional app.

The devotional was about the story of King Jehoshaphat, who won a war despite not having enough soldiers. Edilyn was amazed by how God gave them victory because Jehoshaphat sought him in prayer. She realized that she, too, can seek God’s help.

“Whenever we have problems, look up! Let’s look to the Lord and fix our eyes on Him, because He is a victorious God,” Edilyn declared, claiming victory over her illness.

This message encouraged her to pray and seek God’s guidance. It encouraged her to trust the process and undergo biopsy. During this tough season, the CBN Asia Prayer Center became her prayer companion.

“Everything that I’ve been through at the hospital—step by step—I would message CBN Asia. God truly gave me the strength to face all problems,” Edilyn said.

Praying, waiting, and holding on to her miracle.

This was Edilyn’s posture in front of her adversity. She was told to wait for a month to see the results of her biopsy. But on the 15th day, God surprised her with her long-awaited healing.

“I have never been that nervous in my life. When I heard the results, I cried tears of happiness. They said my tumor is benign!” Edilyn recalled in tears. The doctors successfully extracted the cyst, and by God’s grace, she is completely healed.

Today, Edilyn loves to share about the power of prayer and a God who heals.

“No one is exempted from experiencing trials in life. What’s different about having Jesus in our lives is we have the courage to face those trials,” she ended.

Have you been depressed, anxious, and physically ill for too long?

God was able to speak peace to the heart and mind of Edilyn. He can do the same for you. Seek God in prayer and allow Him to prove that He is your great and awesome healer.

When the sick and distressed cry to God, He hears them. He delivers them. From emotional healing to recovery from sickness, God in His love speaks, and it is done—the body and soul are restored to health.

“Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction. Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wondrous works to the children of man!” (Psalms 107:19-21 ESV)

Are You Experiencing Financial Worries?

Has money become a source of conflict in your marriage?

Have you been working ‘round the clock but still fail to meet your family’s daily needs?

According to social scientists, one of the reasons why married couples fight or choose to part ways is because of financial incompatibility.

Disagreements happen when couples have different values and priorities in terms of money. They lack communication and do things without their spouse’s consent.

That is what Rosemarie Remo experienced.

Her husband who works as a company driver was earning just enough to provide for the basic needs of their family.

With this kind of financial condition, they could not afford to spend more than their regular budget.

However, Rosemarie struggled with poor money management. She has been guilty of buying impulsively despite experiencing financial difficulties.

Like Rosemarie, do you or your partner struggle with poor money management?

When one spouse spends a significant amount of money without their partner’s knowledge, it is called “financial infidelity.”

Often, this weakness in marriage can lead to the loss of trust, love, and peace.

Rosemarie felt it.

She felt that she failed her husband and made her family drown in debt.

Because of the tension and challenges they faced, she felt restless.

Having no one to turn to, Rosemarie found hope as she chanced upon The 700 Club Asia.

She witnessed a story of a couple who overcame their struggle with gambling and unwise money management.

“I cried that time. I said, ‘Can it also happen to me?’” She cried a prayer in her heart, hoping that they would experience victory over financial struggle.

When she prayed, she was also moved to give and take part in the program’s mission to bring hope to the hopeless and hurting.

“I felt comforted and happy. I am happy even if I do not get to experience the same thing that happened in the story I witnessed. At least I was able to help through my donation.”

But God who called His people to do good works proved to Rosemarie that He is faithful just as Hebrews 10:23 (ISV) says, “Let us continue to hold firmly to the hope that we confess without wavering, for the one who made the promise is faithful.” 

Not long after she donated, her husband became a regular worker and received a salary increase and allowance. Because of that, they were able to pay all their debts in a five-six moneylending scheme. Her children were also able to finish their studies.

But more than the financial breakthrough, Rosemarie is so grateful that she experienced rekindled love in their marriage.

When Rosemarie surrendered her financial worries to God, she learned how to be a blessing despite her lack and struggles. She gave with a cheerful heart expecting nothing in return.

Yet the Lord is gracious and good.

He proved to Rosemarie that He is the God who hears and sees (Genesis 16:13). When people put their trust in Him, He answers their prayers (1 Chronicle 5:20).

Truly, we can never outgive God nor imagine the things He can give and show us.

Are you also longing for a breakthrough in your life?

God cares about every area of your life. Do not hesitate to call unto Him! He is there to listen, help, and deliver you.

Seek Him and He shall surely answer you. He is there to deliver you from all your fears (Psalm 34:4).

If you need prayers and encouragement, feel free to contact us through the CBN Asia Prayer Center.

Like Rosemarie, do you want to sow a seed of faith? We welcome you to partner with us! It is our joy to be working alongside you as we bless our kababayans who need hope, healing, breakthrough, and miracles.

How Can I Put My Hope in God in Difficult Times?

Hope makes the faith stronger.

It helps you see that something better is coming along your way regardless of your circumstances.

But what if your situation is trying to steal your hope?

Will you still hold on to it?

Be inspired by the story of Mirasol and Jamar Tandoy.

Mirasol and Jamar tied the knot in 2007. Like many newly married couples, life has been challenging for them at first.

“I had to let go of my teaching career to be with my husband; we only depended on the pastor’s allowance from the church. But God made a way for us to enjoy our simple beginnings,” Mirasol recalled.

Despite their hardships as a newlywed, they still hold on to God’s character–that He is still good.

Do you also cling to God when life seems full of challenges?

One of Mirasol and Jamar’s desires is to have their own family.

But their faith was tested when Mirasol suffered her first miscarriage in 2011.

“It was really hard for me. I was so emotional during those times and my husband was not with me while I was bleeding. I was very disappointed. My heart became cold towards God because of what happened,” Mirasol painfully recalled.

Jamar shared his sentiments, “Only God knew what was happening. Despite what my wife went through, I am relieved to know that she still listens and believes in God.”

When things don’t go our way, the natural response is to question God’s ways.

But be assured that God knows what He is doing. His plans are not to hurt you but to give you hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11).

As the Jamar and Mirasol sought God for hope and comfort, they chanced upon The 700 Club of Asia. Through the show, they were moved to bless their kababayans in need.

“We saw the wide reach of Operation Blessing and how they help people. We are inspired by their mission. Even though we didn’t have much during that time, the Holy Spirit encouraged us to be part of the ministry by giving,” Maricris shared.

The couple remained hopeful in God. They still believe that the Lord can grant their ultimate desire.

But still, it did not happen as they expected.

For the second time, Mirasol experienced another miscarriage.

“After my second miscarriage, I wrestled with God through prayer. I became so emotional again. I questioned Him why it happened. But my husband is full of God’s wisdom. He encouraged me. He really showed his care and love for me during those moments,” Mirasol said.

The struggle they faced was truly great, but their faith was even greater! In fact, it grew stronger!

While they were watching The 700 Club of Asia, they joined the hosts’ prayer for couples who want to have a child.

“We felt that the prayer was meant for us. It helped strengthen our faith that God will grant us our desires,” Mirasol convincingly shared.

Jamar was also praying with his beloved wife, “We will never forget that moment. God used that prayer for us to remain hopeful.”

Finally, after the long wait, God answered their prayer!

Truly, no one can God’s perfect plan. In 2018, Mirasol and Jamar became parents to baby Gamaliel.

“I was so happy and grateful to God. That time was the year He gifted us a baby,” Mirasol happily shared.

But wait, there’s more!

The couple’s blessings did not end there. God also blessed them with new businesses: A coffee shop, a farm, and an online trading venture.

Jamar expressed his gratitude to God and to The 700 Club of Asia, “The program has a huge impact in our lives. It reminded me that when we come to God in prayer, He really listens.”

Mirasol added, “Whatever we have reaped today, The 700 Club of Asia has been a part of it. It is one of God’s channels for us to extend our blessings to others.”

Like Jamar and Mirasol, don’t let your situation steal your hope in the Lord.

God is bigger than what you are currently facing.

Let His presence be your source of hope as you face life’s challenges.

Feeling Lost and Insecure About You Career?

Finally, your day has come. It’s graduation day!

The classes have ended. The exams are behind you. You have your life in your own hands and the possibilities are endless. With a degree to show off and dreams you want to achieve, it feels like nothing can stop you.

But after many applications, rejections, short-lived jobs, and growing dissatisfaction with your career path, life hits—it’s not as easy as you have expected.

The passion fizzles out. Hope fades away. Self-doubt bubbles up. Then you ask, “Is there a meaningful career that awaits me?”

If there’s a person that can relate to your dilemma, it’s Lyzanette Padua.

Lyzanette struggled to find a permanent job in Denmark. Due to back-to-back rejections despite her marketing degree, she had to jump from one temporary part-time job to another to survive.

She had to decide between getting her dream job and making ends meet. She had no choice. Her passion had to be pushed to the side.

For Lyzanette, the early stages of her career were this: Finding a job that didn’t fit her degree, giving it all that she got, losing that job a few months later, and picking herself back up again to find another.

It lasted for almost five years. Because of that, her passion eventually fizzled out, and self-doubt started to creep in.

“Am I not good enough?” Lyzanette lamented.

Do you share the same sentiments with Lyzanette?

Have you been faced with back-to-back rejections in your life?

Have you questioned yourself and your capabilities?

Have you grown weary of believing that a stable, fulfilling job will ever come your way?

If you do, let Lyzanette’s story remind you that even in the face of an unstable career, God is working things out for your good.

In those moments when things weren’t working out for Lyzanette, she clung to her faith in the Lord. Despite her worries for the future, Lyzanette, with the help of her friend back in the Philippines, developed a daily habit of talking about God and His promises.

Through those conversations, Lyzanette regained hope that God is doing something behind the scenes.

Inspired by the stories of Operation Blessing outreaches featured in The 700 Club Asia program, Lyzanette has been faithful to give 10% of her monthly salary to the ministry.

Even though she wasn’t sure if she would have enough for tomorrow, she chose to give in faith and clung to the promises in Galatians 6:9:

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”

Despite not living her dream life yet, Lyzanette chose to trust God. With nothing but faith and a hopeful heart, Lyzanette tried to apply for a job again.

Lyzanette finally got accepted as a Sales Adviser in a clothing company in Denmark. Besides having good benefits and a higher salary, her new job is something that she loves to do.

She finally saw the fruit of her faith and generosity.

“God would really exceed your expectations,” Lyzanette shared with gratitude.

Despite her long-drawn season of feeling lost and insecure about her career, God showed her that those who trust Him will surely find favor in His sight. Lyzanette found freedom from all her worries and fears.

God wants to do the same with you.

While it’s tempting to think that your career right now isn’t promising at all or that you might never measure up, the truth is that God is the author of your life. You don’t have to fear and worry about what the future holds.

Lyzanette’s story is a testament that those who seek, depend, and surrender everything to God will find His hand in everything that they do, even in unstable careers.

Let the truth of her story fuel your faith as you pursue the desires of you heart—yes, there is a meaningful, fulfilling, and stable career that God has in store for you.

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28 NIV)

Like Lyzanette, you can help our kababayans in need by partnering with CBN Asia. If you are praying for a breakthrough in your career, our 24/7 Prayer Center is always available to pray with you.

The Principle of Sowing and Reaping Is Real!

Have you ever heard the saying, “You reap what you sow?”

To “sow” something literally means to “plant seeds,” while to “reap” something means to “collect a crop.” These actions apply to more than just gardening and farming. The Bible also teaches this concept.

One of those who believe in this principle is Gina Mendoza. Her heart always longs to help those who are in need and share her blessings with those who are less fortunate than herself.

“There are many people in need, but sometimes, our heart is not open to help them,” she realized.

Not only is Gina a giver, but also an avid viewer of The 700 Club Asia. Through the show, she discovered that she could reach out to her kababayans by supporting God’s ministry.

“I learned that Operation Blessing helps a lot of people. They go to remote areas to make water wells and help children go to school,” Gina said, recalling the episodes she watched.

She was deeply moved by the stories of how Operation Blessing, CBN Asia’s humanitarian arm, helps those in need. Because of this, she decided to make a commitment to give to the ministry, believing that those in need will benefit from her giving. She made her way to M. Lhuillier to donate Php 3,000.

Little did she know that while she was sowing in the lives of others, God was working on the things she was about to reap!

Gina has been suffering from her migraines for over a decade. One night, while watching her favorite show, The 700 Club Asia, she saw the hosts prayed for a woman who was suffering from migraines at that very moment.

She prayed for healing and to her amazement, was healed after claiming the prayer! Up to this day, the migraine never came back.

Not only that, God also answered a prayer that she has already forgotten.

A few years ago, Gina prayed for a commercial property. But it turned out that it was already purchased by another buyer. God is so amazing that after many years have passed, the lot became available again. He also provided Gina with the means to purchase the property!

“I learned that God does not forget the desires of our heart,” she said.

Your acts of compassion are not unnoticed by God, who rewards them abundantly. And since no one can outgive God, you can expect numerous blessings from Him in return. It may be in a different form, but it will surely come!

In giving, carry this verse with you:

Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:6-8 NIV)

Start applying the principle of sowing and reaping and see how God can surprise you!

Help our kababayans in need by partnering with CBN Asia. If you are in need of provision, our 24/7 Prayer Center is always available to pray with you.

Are You Praying for Blessings?

Was there ever a time in your life when you thought everything was fine then suddenly, things just started to fall apart?

Out of nowhere, what seemed like a promising dream became a haunting nightmare.

Ligaya Antonio thought that she had a great and foolproof idea when she started joining the online selling trend. For her, it was a great opportunity to earn a lot of money while doing something she is very comfortable with.

In a few months’ time, Ligaya’s sales skyrocketed. At one point, she was able to earn as much as Php 200,000, which encouraged her to keep going. From time to time, she and her husband would go back and forth to Hong Kong to buy bags that she would sell for her online business.

But after a short period of time, her business dwindled due to the intense competition in the online market. Ligaya and her husband saw their resources decrease bit by bit, until it became difficult to make ends meet.

They were abundant in resources before, but they are lacking now.

“When our sales declined, our basic needs were affected. It was difficult to get by. We have to pay for our rent, we have to pay for our electricity, we have to think about our children,” Ligaya said.

This situation caused friction in Ligaya’s marriage and constantly caused numerous arguments between them.

During this time, she also had a mild stroke that brought a heavy toll on her life.

Challenges really surrounded Ligaya and her family that shook her to the core.

When faced with heavy and unending burdens, what do you do

Where do you go for help?

Ligaya chose to remain faithful and run to God.

In spite of all that she and her family have been through, Ligaya held onto her faith and consistently honored God by supporting His ministry, The 700 Club Asia.

Ligaya explained, “The best way for me to express my gratitude for what God has given me is for me to give back to those that need help the most.”

She chose to give because she saw the good work that The 700 Club Asia was doing and felt inspired that her support had an impact on the lives of her kababayans. She wanted to bring change in their lives so even when she was struggling, she gave her best to become a fountain of blessing to others.

God saw her heart and He honored her giving.

With faith, Ligaya asked God for wisdom and direction as she tried to navigate her way out of her business problems. Thankfully, God did not disappoint her!

Just after a few months, her business picked up once again. God opened doors for her and gave her ideas to venture into selling diamonds, shoes, and clothes aside from just selling bags. More than the financial blessings, God allowed Ligaya to experience a new hope and a new life.

God also healed her completely from her mild stroke—her body recovered quickly, just like a stroke never happened.

“If I could meet God face to face, I would tell Him, ‘Thank you so much, Lord! Because it’s true, You never abandon all those who are faithful to You.’” she exclaimed.

Are you praying for blessings?

When Ligaya was lacking and burdened, she ran to God for help. Her faith did not waver; she stayed faithful to Him in the midst of her trials and so God blessed her abundantly.

In good times and bad, staying faithful to the Lord is always the best decision you could ever do. Indeed,

“Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.” (James 1:12 NIV)

Do you need someone to talk to about your life’s challenges?

Keeping Your Promises to God Brings Blessings to Your Life

Have you ever forgotten your promises to God? Arlene Delos Reyes got so distracted with the blessings she received that she failed to remember her commitment to God.

Arlene was unemployed when she discovered The 700 Club Asia. The show encouraged her to keep praying and hoping that she and her cousin will soon have a stable job to suffice their needs.

Arlene Delos Santos

Despite being jobless, she started supporting God’s ministry by donating to CBN Asia. Like most people in desperate times, Arlene promised to God that she will be faithful in giving when she finds a job.

The Lord heard her cry and not long after that, He answered her prayers and gave her a job.

“I was so glad. I couldn’t express my happiness during that time because I could see that God was moving. From there, I saw how generous God is when we are faithful in giving,” Arlene said.

The Lord favored her so much that she was even able to buy a new house. Arlene was living her life with blessings after blessings, but she became distracted with all of it and forgot her promise to God. She soon stopped being a faithful giver.

After a few years, she lost everything she had acquired. Arlene can no longer pay her house’s monthly fees and she lost her job twice.

Imagine planning your family’s future and thinking that your life is already secured, then suddenly losing everything so quickly. Arlene started wondering, was it because she forgot about her promise to God?

She even admitted, “I was so preoccupied with all the blessings. In a blink of an eye, everything I ever enjoyed was taken away from me. It was hard for me.”

Arlene prayed and tried to restore her close relationship with the Lord. Because God is the God of second chances, she got another job as a fire dispatcher in the Middle East. This time, she is determined to honor her promise to God.

Arlene did not forget to thank God and get back to being faithful in supporting His ministry through CBN Asia.

“I am thankful that the Lord taught me how important it is to remember Him. Giving back to God is part of my life now,” Arlene testified.

Arlene Delos Santos

Despite the pandemic, Arlene experienced the goodness, faithfulness, and freedom that comes from God. She’s grateful that He led her to CBN Asia to extend help to the people who need it the most.

Arlene is now debt-free and is continuously blessing the people around her. Not only does God bless her financially, He increased her faith.

Like Arlene, if you feel like you have disappointed God, it’s not too late. He is ready to help you and willing to bless you as you decide to be faithful to Him.

Will I Ever Find True Love?

“I don’t deserve to be loved.”

Coleen Barsibal believed this to be true after going through many traumatic experiences with family and romantic relationships.

It started with her father leaving them for another woman. Her mother was then diagnosed with schizophrenia, while her eldest sibling claimed their own life.

Since then, there wasn’t a permanent place that she could call home. She and her other siblings were passed on from one relative to another.

Did you experience the same problems, too? How did you overcome?

Coleen thought that the answer to her problems was doing vices with her friends. While these made her forget her problems, she eventually realized that it was only temporary, and these could not give her the genuine joy she seeks in life.

Believing her life was meaningless and pointless, Coleen also started entering romantic relationships. She urged her then-boyfriend to engage in sexual activities with her, despite him initially refusing to do it. He ended up cheating on her and breaking her heart.

She recalled asking herself, “My world crumbled down. I felt lonely again. My heart, body, and soul were so tired. Where is my life headed?”

At that moment, she asked God to give her the right man for her because she was tired of everything that she went through.

One day, she got an unexpected friend request on a social media site. It was from Sylverio, her classmate and crush from sixth grade. They started messaging each other, building a relationship together, and even co-habiting before they got married.

Is this finally the part where she finds peace and joy? Unfortunately, not.

Coleen found out that Sylverio has a child, and that the mother was using her child to get him back. One time when she called her boyfriend, the woman answered the phone and told Coleen that she’s in a hotel with Sylverio.

Although Sylverio ended up choosing Coleen over the other woman, she was still bothered and couldn’t sleep at night.

Thankfully, God had an amazing plan that would change Coleen’s life forever.

One sleepless night, she stumbled upon The 700 Club Asia, where she discovered that God loves her despite her past.

She prayed with the host and accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior. Her burdens felt lighter now that she has a personal relationship with God.

You can experience this miracle as well when you let Jesus into your life and believe that He can save you! According to Romans 10:9 (NIV), “If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

God did not only restore Coleen’s relationship with Him, but with her loved ones as well.

“I learned to forgive even when the person did not apologize to me. I can now tell my father, ‘I love you’ and to my siblings, ‘I forgive you’. That’s how powerful God’s love is,” she testified.

God also restored Coleen’s relationship with Sylverio, and they tied the knot in 2014. Thanks to The 700 Club Asia, she was able to find a Christian church where she and her husband can grow in faith.

They are now part of a discipleship group that helps them love and know Jesus deeper. The couple also publicly declared their faith through their baptism.

But that is not the end of God’s amazing blessings for Coleen. She also passed the nursing board exam and is now using her profession to show God’s love to others.

Coleen now proudly says, “Yes, I have finally found true love and it can only be found in God.”

Are you looking for true love as well? Do the world’s definitions and expressions of love continue to disappoint you over and over again?

Turn to God, the Author of love! There is always hope because you are covered by His unconditional and unending love.

“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet My unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed.” (Isaiah 54:10 NIV)
