The Passion of Ashley

Posted: August 1, 2008 in FAITH, random thoughts
She came to life from pages… Her words echoed into our hearts. She was timeless as her name is forever intertwined into the lives of others whose lifetime sparked and became part of the eternal flame.

As Louie Giglio read from the pages of Ashley’s journal, she came into being. As her story was read from her own writing, we became a part of her life. And she became a reflection of mine. See link : (

That night, I was one with thousands of Filipinos who stormed Ultra amidst the pouring rain and heavy traffic. Before this event, a friend of mine didn’t push through with her plans of joining us because of certain reasons. What struck me was the idea that the Passion event will just be about emotional highs due to the crowd, music etc… I silently agree with her as doubts crept in for what my real motives were for attending this event. But I went on, with the hope that HE will guide me through this and yet again HE didn’t fail me.

The Passion World Tour @ Manila is a testimony of God’s growing kingdom here in thePhilippines. A testimony of God’s faithfulness… of God’s loving grace… that is at work not just in one part of the globe but is happening contagiously around the world (see

And Ashley’s story is one of the many stories of believers who have made a difference by accepting Christ in their lives and living that faith as a testimony of God’s love and grace. It doesn’t matter how short lived her testimony was, what mattered was its truthfulness. That night, we were all reminded how our lives can be used for His glory. I do hope that as I blog about my life (whether through my happy, sad, battered, boring, exciting state), I let you, dear reader, think about a few or a whole lot of things (depending on how much you want to think about :D).

Mighty To Save

By Hillsong Australia

Everyone needs compassion
A love that’s never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness

The kindness of a Savior

The hope of nations

My Savior

He can move the mountains

My God is Mighty to save

He is Mighty to save


Author of salvation

He rose and conquered the grave

Jesus conquered the grave

So take me as You find me

All my fears and failures

And fill my life again

I give my life to follow

Everything I believe in

Now I surrender

Shine your light and let the whole world see

We’re singing for the glory of the risen King…Jesus

**He indeed took me as He found me, lovingly embrace all of me. And now I pray, He’ll take this life of mine for His eternal glory.
