Do You Want to Receive God’s Comfort?

When Cecille Marasigan prayed for God’s comfort, she received it and more.

She experienced God’s faithfulness when she flew to Saudi Arabia and served as a nurse for 17 long years. Through that noble job, Cecille was able to provide a comfortable life for her children and allowed her to support her parents in the Philippines. 

However, in 2014, she had to let go of her growing career to take care of her beloved father who suffered from a stroke. 

Like Cecille, have you ever had to choose between career and family? If so, then you can relate to her story.

“I was taking care of other patients, but I was not able to do it for my own father. So, I had to go home to take care of him,” Cecille recalled. She and her 3 children flew back to the country while her husband remained in Jeddah to support the family.  

They were trying to make ends meet, but they have scraped out what was left of their savings when their children got sick. Their son suffered severe asthma while their daughter was brought to the hospital due to stomach problems.

“It was the most challenging season of my life. We came to a point when we only have Php 3,000 in our wallets,” she narrated. That moment, she was left torn and wondering how they would stretch their resources for the medical expenses of her ailing father and children. 

Where do you find comfort during times of trouble? 

Cecille found comfort in the arms of her loving God.

During one of her sleepless nights, she chanced upon The 700 Club Asia and was blessed by how God used the ministry in reaching out to people in need.  

Cecille realized that God has comforted and sustained them against all odds. With the limited resources that she had, she trusted God’s, unlimited love. 

She prayed and immediately took out Php 1,000 from their remaining budget and donated to CBN Asia, “I learned that as you give, you glorify God. Gratefulness overflowed in my heart.” 

Although she was not expecting anything in return, a mighty rain of blessings started to pour into their lives.

God healed Cecille’s loved ones and opened a business opportunity for their family. He also blessed them with a product center of herbal supplements and a health and wellness clinic. Her husband already went home because they even surpassed their earnings while they were working abroad! 

Having experienced God’s comforting love, Cecille can reflect that comfort to the people around her. And as she continues to give, lead, and care for her neighbors’ well-being, she also learns that God’s love is indescribable because it has no limits. 

“It’s a joy for me to help. God’s mathematical equation when it comes to giving is multiplication. The more we give, all the more will He course His blessings through us,” Cecille ended.

Are you struggling to believe that God can comfort you? 

Whenever you feel that way, you can always come back to this truth: His comforting, saving love came down to reconcile you with the Heavenly Father, so you can experience the fullness of His grace. And through trials, God’s compassion for you will always remain.  

No love compares to that. 

“‘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,’ says the Lord, who has compassion on you.” (Isaiah 54:10 NIV) 

It is our joy to comfort you through prayers. Call the CBN Asia Prayer Center at 8-737-0-700.

4 Tips to Grow in Your Career Amid COVID-19

Many employees were forced to work from home when the entire Luzon was placed under enhanced community quarantine due to the COVID-19 threat.

If you are one of those who feel stuck in your work-from-home setup, Beyond Small Talk can help you.

You can still make the most out of this time to level up your productivity at work by following these GROW tips – Give, Relate, Opportunities, and Word hard.

“Give beyond whatever you’re paid for,” says Beyond Small Talk host Ardy Roberto.

Whether it’s a small task or a big one, give all that you have because God assigned you to do it.  Acquire Joseph the Dreamer’s exceptional attitude toward work found in the book of Genesis, whether he was thrown at the prison or promoted by Pharaoh, he gave above and beyond what is expected of him.

Joseph succeeded in everything that he did because God was with him.


Do not just excel at your work assignments but be someone who is easy to get along with. Wherever you are, learn to be that person who is cooperative, dependable, and understanding.

Walk-in fruits of the Holy Spirit are found in Galatians 5:22-23 NIV, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”


Look for opportunities to serve your company and take the initiative.

Your leaders are looking for people who are always willing to learn and grow just like Ardy did.

“I was starting out as a junior manager of a company, but I talked to my boss and I saw that there was an opening for another position. I told him that I can do that job and my job at the same time. You don’t even have to pay me extra,” he narrated.

Do you know what the outcome was?

Although the main reason why he took the job is to learn more, His boss promoted him within 6 months and raised his salary double.

Work hard

Work hard as if you are working for God and joy will come from the fulfillment that you did your utmost.

“As a result, you will grow in your career, grow in your mind, grow in your capabilities and skills,” says Beyond Small Talk host Miriam Quiambao-Roberto.

Do you have any prayer requests? Send them to CBN Asia Prayer Center or call 8-737-0-700 so we can pray in agreement with you.

Stay tuned for more Beyond Small Talk webisodes every Saturday, 7 pm on The 700 Club Asia Facebook page and YouTube Channel.

In this time of COVID-19 crisis, you are safe and secure in God’s promise.

Take heart in His Word in Psalm 91:9-11 TPT that declares, “When we live our lives within the shadow of God Most High, our secret hiding place, we will always be shielded from harm. How then could evil prevail against us or disease infect us? God sends angels with special orders to protect you wherever you go, defending you from all harm.”

Stressed from Work? Here are Tips to Overcome | Beyond Small Talk

Do you feel unhappy with your job?

Struggling to cope with your difficult work environment?

Drained with tasks at work?

Watch out! Do not leave it unaddressed because it can result in burnout.

“Burnout is a reaction to prolonged or chronic job stress and is characterized by three main dimensions: exhaustion, cynicism (less identification with the job), and feelings of reduced professional ability,” Elizabeth Scott, MS explained in her article Burnout Symptoms and Treatment in Verywell Mind.

To help with that, here are tips from our Beyond Small Talk hosts on how to overcome your challenges at work and become productive again:

1. Remember that Jesus is your boss

There is a greater purpose why you are working and that is found in Colossians 3:23 NIV, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human master.”

Give your best at work not because you want to please men, but because you want to please God above all. Whatever good that you do, God Himself will surely reward you.

2. Check your heart

If you are at a point where you just drag yourself to work and you feel unmotivated, Beyond Small Talk host, Ardy Roberto, advises that you have to do some soul searching.

Ask God, “What is it that You want me to do? What is it that You have called me to do?”

As you wait for God’s answer, remember that it’s also not too late to learn to love what you are doing. God surely led you to that job not by accident but for a purpose.

3. Improve your work-life balance

You can be in love with your job but still get burned out if you don’t practice a healthy work-life balance.

It happened with Beyond Small Talk host Miriam Quiambao-Roberto.

Her advice? Do not let work steal your time with God.

“We need that moment where we have to connect with our Creator so that we can create more in our work,” she said.

Moreover, carve out special time with your loved ones and you will see how it can bring refreshment to your soul and strength as you face tomorrow.

Find comfort in God’s Word in Philippians 4:6 NIV, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”

Do you need prayers for your work? Perhaps, you are at the point of burnout.

Call CBN Asia Prayer Center now at 8-737-0-700 and we would love to pray for you.

Watch out for the next webisode of Beyond Small Talk every Saturday, 7 pm on The 700 Club Asia Facebook page and YouTube Channel.
