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.

Do You Want to be Accepted?

Youth, beauty, and talent – Ney Leyva already got everything she needs to reach her ambitions and secure her sister’s future.

After being raised solely by their grandmother, Ney shouldered the responsibility of being the family’s breadwinner. She worked as a professional dancer.

However, when the local dance scene industry unfortunately plummeted, Ney suffered a huge financial loss. She then met a man who could give her the financial security she needed.

“I was tempted by my friends to have a relationship with him. Getting him felt like a challenge to me,” Ney recalled.

She was lured into thinking that cohabitating with a man will give her security.

After a while, Ney’s boyfriend got her pregnant. She thought it will make their lives happier.

But, they lost the baby.

After the tragedy, her boyfriend left Ney. Her world turned upside down.

She felt like she was drowning in struggles. She resorted to drinking alcohol and taking illegal drugs which eventually ruined her relationship with her family.

“It was too painful. I felt like I had no one to turn to,” Ney cried.

One day, while still drowning in despair, Ney fell down their house’s staircase. In a flash, she saw darkness surrounding her.

It became the wake-up call she never thought she needed. It dawned on her that the life she was living then was not the life she dreamt of.

A neighbor reached out to Ney and patiently introduced the Word of God to her thereafter. Upon knowing Jesus, her thirst for acceptance was quenched. The love of God helped her turn her back from addictions.

“Words aren’t enough to express my gratitude to God. I can’t thank Him enough for the good life He has given me now,” Ney said, smiling.

Secured in the kind of love that accepts her, no matter what she has done, Ney has now built a beautiful family and continues to honor the Lord.

“I knew now why my first relationship didn’t work out. It was a wrong one,” Ney pondered.

Like Ney, are you looking for acceptance and validation from the people around you?

Perhaps, you are looking in the wrong places.

Isaiah 43:4 says, “Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life.”

Do you want to feel accepted? Look to Jesus.

You are valuable in His eyes that He traded everything in exchange for your life. Whenever you feel unloved and unaccepted, may you be reminded that Jesus loves you, accepts you wholeheartedly, and looks at you as His precious and honorable child, no matter what you’ve gone through. Fret not! His grace is ready to meet you right where you are because you already have God’s acceptance.

Are you ready to feel the unending grace of Jesus Christ in your life? Visit the CBN Asia website and take your first step to peace. If you need someone to talk to, you may call the Prayer Center and we would love to pray for you!
