Familiar faces at our Christmas Box Packing Day, 10 years ago. Thanks to the hard work of these people and all the others who have volunteered or donated, we have fed 110,426 families. This year we'll be packing 21,000 Christmas Boxes! For more info, and how you can play your part visit www.christmasbox.co.nz #LIFEthrowback #tbt #ChristmasBox @ChristmasBox_NZabout 1 month ago ago
It’s pretty common knowledge that we, Filipinos, love Christmas. Our celebrations commence around September back home. People start playing carols, the decorations start going up, and our house is never without a tree before October ends. To say that I love Christmas would be an understatement and that our celebrations were mediocre, would be a lie. Having had that upbringing, I’m left somewhat oblivious to the fact that not all families necessarily have a merry Christmas. Hearing about Christmas Box for the first time at church made me realise that the need is real, and that the need is great. It’s amazing to think that thanks to an initiative like Christmas Box, my “little contribution” could go a long way. That is, with just $30 (roughly about a week’s spending on just coffee), I could feed AN ENTIRE FAMILY during Christmas. Insane. So, it is my great hope that the idea of giving something small doesn’t stop us from, well, giving. - Diane #humansofLIFE #ChristmasBox @ChristmasBox_NZabout 1 month ago ago
So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. - Matthew 6:31-33about 1 month ago ago
I love the idea that God made me human, because I would make a selfish God and a terrible saviour! Especially when it comes to saving myself. There was a period in my life when I drifted away from all things church and God, and stood faced with the reality of my own brokenness. LIFE Leadership College has been a journey of rediscovering myself. The thing that gets me the most is knowing how broken I can be but understanding that it’s okay. Like the time when I found myself crying uncontrollably in front of a group of people. Never would I have thought I would be crying in front of so many people. God was taking me through a season of pruning. Pruning can be such a painful season but also the most rewarding. Sometimes it’s not always visible to see the transforming that is happening internally. God has taught me some amazing things and now having a better understanding of His love, I’ve realised that it has been in my most vulnerable moments where I have encountered God. I have grown confident to live in my own skin knowing that when I accept my humanity, I also allow God to be God and I think God would prefer it that way. - Terry #humansofLIFEabout 1 month ago ago
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. - James 1:2-4about 1 month ago ago
“My family came around my bedside and it wasn’t until I saw them crying that I knew that it was that serious. It definitely opened my eyes to how life can change in an instant.” Hear the rest of Paul’s story and others from the new series ‘Expectations’ at LIFEtv.coabout 1 month ago ago
I’ve always had big dreams, but was never quite sure how I was going to get there. I tried the university thing first for 3 years, but in my last semester I ended up failing all of my papers. It just wasn’t working out how I wanted it to. So I took a break. I realised that I was just going through a system and I didn’t have a real purpose or drive for it. Coming out of the 3 years I decided that I wasn’t going to chase a qualification. In fact, I got rather excited by the idea of being unqualified. I wanted to be unqualified so that I could see how God would qualify me, how He would use me, and so that I would always know that wherever I am, whatever I am doing, it was God who got me there. I continue to dream big and I still don’t know the details of how I’m going to get there, but I’m excited for each day. And the truth is, when I look around, I’m living my dreams every day. Everyday holds a piece of the big picture puzzle. It’s the greatest adventure yet. - Janie #humansofLIFEabout 1 month ago ago
