LOVING Forgiving Friendly Talent in Singing

Your Hand:

Your Hand Lord, it was Your hand, and I failed to see it! Your hand that knitted me in my mother’s womb and planned every step of my life before I was born. Your hand that led me year after year, from place to place, One step after another, along the way. Your hand that, when I strayed and deviated from the path You had traced for me, did not abandon me; But, still there --- invisible, yet ever present --- Continued to wait – in patience, In long and painful patience – For me to respond to Your fatherly call.

Slide 11:

Your hand that, When I found myself confused, lost, Stuck in the mire and in utter despair, reach down, far down, And pulled me up, far up; And then, in an act of boundless love, lifted me still higher, To Your embrace, to Your heart. Your hand that, through thick and thin, day and night, In summer and winter, in the pain of sin and in tears of repentance, is always there, ever present, ever loving, ever powerful, ever ready, to prove that I come from You and that You want me to be with You, to ever belong to You. Thank You Father for Your fatherly hand! Amen.

Guide Questions For Group Sharing : What are my FIVE God-given talents? Do I use each talent properly? Do I make God happy with my talents? Why or why not? Group Reporting : Summarize the sharing of your group.

Bible Reading : The Parable of the Talents Matthew 25:14-30 The Parable of the Talents tells us that we are unique and special. No two individuals are alike.

Slide 17:

Sino Ako? Hiram sa Diyos ang aking buhay. Ikaw at ako, tanging handog lamang. Di ko ninais na ako’y isilang, ngunit salamat dahil may buhay. Ligaya ko na ako’y isilang, pagkat tao ay mayroong dangal. Sino’ng may pag-big? Sino’ng nagmamahal? Kundi ang tao, Diyos ang pinagmulan. Kundi ako umibig. Kundi ko man bigyang halaga ang buhay kong handog, ang buhay kong hiram sa Diyos, kundi ako nagmamahal, sino ako? ?

Slide 18:

“The Purpose-Driven Life” Many days have come and gone Many years seem to have been wasted Round and round like an aimless journey Seems like we’ve been here before. What on earth am I here for? Come my friend, stop for a while Life must be more than just existin’ Round and round like a carousel ride Shall we end where we began? Tell me so i’ll understand REFRAIN: Let us begin to live this life Let us together seek it’s purpose. Life is not a pointless venture, Eternity is for sure Open up and receive this truth w/in your heart: “That God was smiling at your birth And has a purpose for your life” Come my friend, stop for a while Life must be more than just existin’ Round and round like a carousel ride Shall we end where we began? Tell me so I'll understand “I know the plans I’ve laid for you. Plans for goodness says the LOrd” We were made to last forever. And heaven is our home

Slide 19:

Why did God make us? Do you live your life with a purpose? Old catechisms asked, “Why did God make you?” The answer: “ God made me to know Him, to love Him, and to serve Him in this world and to be happy with Him forever in the next. ” Here, in just 26 words, is the whole reason for our existence . Jesus answered the question even more briefly: “ I came so that you might have life and have it more abundantly .” (John 10:10)

Slide 20:

But what did you do with the talents you have? Did you use them for the preparation for that ETERNAL LIFE that Jesus spoke? So God’s plan for us is simple. He wants us to give us all good things – especially eternal life. Jesus died on the cross to save us all from sin and the eternal separation from God that sin causes. (CCC 599-623). If we love God and our poor brothers and sisters, ETERNAL LIFE is waiting for us in heaven. Song: (Purpose-Driven Life)

Slide 31:

Celebrate you! You are worth celebrating. You are worth celebrating. You are unique. In all this world, there is only one you, Your talents Your experiences Your gifts God created only one you, precious in God’s sight. You have immense potential to love, to care, to create, to grow, to sacrifice…..if you believe in yourself. It doesn’t matter your age, or your color, whether your parents loved you or not. (Maybe they wanted to, but couldn’t) Let that go. It belongs to the past. You belong to the now.

Slide 32:

It doesn’t matter what you have been, the wrong you’ve done, the mistakes you’ve made, the people you’ve hurt. You are forgiven, you are accepted. You’re OK. You are loved…in spite of everything. So love yourself, and nourish the seeds within you. Celebrate you. Begin now. Start anew. Give yourself birth. Today. You are you and that is all you need to be. You are temporary (on the earth at least). Here today and gone tomorrow.

Slide 33:

But today…today can be a new beginning, a new thing, a new life. You cannot deserve this new life. It is given freely. That is the miracle called God. So celebrate the miracle and CELEBRATE YOU!

Slide 34:

LORD, I OFFER MY LIFE All that I am, all that I have, I lay them down before You o Lord. All my regrets, all my acclaim, the joy and the pain, I’m making them Yours. Lord, I offer my life to You, everything I’ve been through, use it for Your glory. Lord I offer my days to You, lifting my praise to You as a pleasing sacrifice. Lord I offer You my life. Things in the past, things yet unseen, wishes and dreams that are yet to come true. All of my hopes, all of my plans, my heart and my hands are lifted to You. (refrain)
