YL Philippines Among Abing

To all our dear friends and supporters,

For this week, we once again ask you to join us in prayer. This time, for all the volunteer leaders and staff in the ministry. We currently have about 500 active volunteer leaders all throughout the different Young Life areas, and every single one of them needs our prayers and support.

Truth be told, it’s very hard to be a Christian ministry volunteer these days. We are experiencing more hindrances and distractions that prevent our leaders from reaching out to more kids. Society has also been lot more apprehensive with ministry presence in schools and public places. But rest assured that we are not giving up!

Please pray for our leaders and staff. Pray that they keep their fire alight, hold fast to the Lord’s promises, and keep their eye on the prize. They need your support more than ever. And we need their hands and feet more than ever.

Mabuhay ang mga Young Life Volunteers at Staff!

From all of us,

Young Life Philippines

Better Than Any Fan

Lamentations 3:21-23

“But I call this to mind, and therefore I have hope. The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.”


I recently joined a fan group for a local celebrity couple, and the things fans did to support these celebrities just blew my mind. The world of fangirling/fanboying is totally different; their dedication is unreal!

They would do things like:

  • Spend hours on their phones and computers posting and joining online conversations about celebrities they support. They set goals to make these celebrities trend on social media.

  • Rent out computer shops for hours to stream the most recently released song or music video (on repeat) on all available computers.

  • Send gifts to celebrities or have food catered at their shoot locations.

Fan groups spend so much time, money, and effort to show support to their favorite celebrities.

It gets me thinking that the Lord’s love for us is like that…and more! He is willing to do so much more for us. His love is unconditional, unceasing, and everlasting.

The book of Lamentations was written by Jeremiah primarily about suffering. But if we take a look at the verse, it says, “But I call this to mind and therefore I have hope…”

It’s so easy to lose hope when we’re in the midst of suffering. But in this verse, Jeremiah points out that there is hope because “…the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases.”

Ang gugma sa Ginoo lig-on, masaligan, ug dili mag paling-paling. (God’s love is resilient, trustworthy, and unwavering.)

Even in the midst of suffering, when it’s easy for us to blame the Lord for allowing us to go through turbulence and hardships, His love for us will not cease.

Even if we whine and complain about the consequences of our stubbornness and bad decisions, “His mercies never come to an end, they are new every morning.” His forgiveness is unending. He will never get tired of us. His love is indeed like no other. It’s mind-blowing.

And how beautiful is it that the last line of the verse says, “great is Your faithfulness.”

The steadfast love of the Lord and His unending mercies are not because we are faithful or we are worthy. It’s the other way around. Because of His loyalty and faithfulness, we are able to receive His overflowing mercies.

The love of the Lord for us is unquestionable and unwavering. It’s what allows us to hope.

It’s up to us if we want to experience it fully. We get the full experience of God’s love if we focus and remember.

It’s easy to forget about the great love of the Lord if we focus on the distractions—problems, worries, difficult situations. But if we redirect our focus solely on the Lord, then it will be easy to remember His love and His promises and how they never fail.


Heavenly Father,

Thank you for your unconditional love. We do not deserve it, but you love us nonetheless. We hope and pray that you grant us the wisdom to remember your selfless sacrifice for our sins, and the strength focus on you and you alone.

In your mighty name we pray,
