HOW TO BE GOD-CENTERED

“You were made by God and for God – and until you understand that, life will never make sense.”

The essence of being God-centered is God Himself. For me, living a God-centered life starts in discovering God within us and realizing His plans for us. It’s in God that we find out who we are and what we are living for, and unless we accept that fact, we’ll never get to see life the other way around.
Being God-centered has always been one of the core virtues being molded within each of us. It has always been the mission of people in our school, our Church, our society and even in our work to install this very important value in us to live by.
For me, being God-centered doesn’t always shows in praying the same monotonous, scripted prayers or going to church every Sunday. It shows in a deeper spiritual relationship we have with God.
It starts by surrendering ourselves to Him and accepting Him in our life. To be a God-centered person, we live our life with God in the center. Without God, our life would not find its purpose, and without purpose, our life would not know its meaning, and without meaning, our life would have no significance or hope at all.
To be God-centered, we should put God first in everything we do, in every decision we make, in every actions we take and in every hardship we face. We should seek first God’s wisdom and guidance. This is where we will fully grasp the true significance of God in our life. To be God-centered, we must trust God whole-heartedly and abide in His Words. Furthermore, we should have a deep and everlasting faith in Christ.
To be God-centered, we should be contented with what God has set for us and be thankful for everything He has done. We must learn to accept the road He has prepared and laid for us. We should learn to listen and be patient, and open our hearts and mind to understand His love, wisdom and guidance. It could be done beginning with reading the Bible and praying and having a personal devotion.
To be God-centered means we not only follow His commandments but also we set it as a standard for us to live a righteous life. We must love not only God, but as well as ourselves and our neighbors. We must learn to give, share, value, and trust, endure, and sacrifice. We must know the essence of respect, humility, obedience, truth, justice, contentment, love, peace, and faith.
Being God-centered doesn’t always concern our own self premises. To be God-centered, we should also put Christ and His Words amidst our relationship with our neighbors, our friends, and our family and love ones. To be God-centered, we shouldn’t just keep God’s Words within us, but share them with those people we meet.
The most important thing of being God-centered is that we do things to please God and do the works of His hands to help others in need. We should always praise, worship and glorify His name.

For some, being God-centered is but difficult. That’s a common mere misconception people usually think. True, living through Christ Words is full of struggles, hardships, and sacrifices. Yet, what we don’t try to understand is God’s reason for letting pain touch our lives. God Himself suffered pain. He so loved the world that He gave His only son to suffer and die for us, for the forgiveness of our sin. The essence of being God-centered is not always about enduring pain and facing sorrow, but it’s about living morally upright, showing mercy, forgiving those who sin against us, having no bitterness, resentment and hatred in our hearts, seeing things positively, and being contented with what life has to offer.

We live more effectively for Christ when we keep our eyes on Him. Truly, being God-centered is accepting God not based solely on His blessings but because without God, we are nothing .He is not just the starting point of our life; he is the source of it.

 

“The only accurate way to understand ourselves is by what God is and by what He does for us”
Romans 12:3

My Personal Life

I was the first child, the first grandchild and the first niece. Given the name Jeanne Pauline Dino Llave, I was a joy and happiness to my family. I’m now 19 years old of age and the eldest among four siblings of Ma. Cristi Dino Llave and Jaime Marqueses Llave. I was brought to the world on the morning of April 26, 1995 at Ziga Memorial Hospital formerly Tabaco General Hospital, Tabaco City, Albay. I have three other younger siblings namely Ma. Jemiline Llave, Christian Kevin Llave and Clara Llave.

At the age of six, my father passed away, and not a year later my mother lived with another man, leaving us in the care of our grandparents. At a very young age, I started to see and know things that most of my ages that time doesn’t even comprehend. Innocence was taken away from my young vocabulary. I took up my grade school at Baranghawon Elementary School where I graduated as salutatorian and pursued my high school degree at Tabaco National High School. Throughout those ten years, I suffered a lot of losses, pain, regrets and disappointments. For some, they could see it as a very miserable life. But I think otherwise.

Upon graduating, I stopped for a whole year to work and then continued with my college education through the aid of my blood relatives living here in Cavite. I’m currently taking up my second year in BS Accountancy course here at Imus Institute.

Like most teenagers, I enjoy spending my leisure time on doing my favorite hobbies. Reading books and novels, writing stories, drawing and surfing the net are my frequent time killers. I’m into music and dancing as well, though I’m not that good in both. Most of my time is usually spent on pondering random thoughts like wondering what lies ahead my future or trying to understand some things that I sometimes fail to grasp at times.

Mentioning about future, I envision my life to be something completely different from what I’ve lived in the past 19 years. I want to see myself on that stage holding my diploma not as a future CPA but a future Architect like my deceased father. I want to see myself walking down that aisle on my most prettiest with the only guy whom I’ll vow to God to spend the rest of my life with. I want to be a caring and loving wife to him, a good mother to my future children and most importantly, to be a good and responsible daughter and sister to my mother and siblings. I want to see them successful in their career choice and to have a blessed and fruitful life as well. I want to be a woman of confidence, reputation, dignity and independence. I want to let my dreams happen. I want to do good service to my people and to God who, of all people, had always been there to guide me and love me on my weakest and darkest journey. Most importantly, I want to see my sole purpose unfolds in front my own eyes.

But for now, my goal is to finished my studies and build a career for my own. I want to dream even bigger dreams. I want to enjoy my youthful years to explore and learn new things. I want to know more about what I can do, make risk and make mistakes. I want to build relationships, build strong bonds with people around me and have a positive mindset at all times. Most importantly, I want to be a responsible Christian youth and to continue my service to God and build an even stronger relationship with Him.

Aside

Love is passion. Obsession. Someone you can’t live without. Someone you fall head over heels for. Find someone you can love like crazy, and will love you the same way back. Listen to your heart. No sense in life without this. To make the journey without falling deeply in love, you haven’t lived a life at all. You have to try, because if you haven’t tried, then you haven’t lived
