From Worry To Glory

Testimonies of faith, hope, and love

About From Worry To Glory


From Worry to Glory” was the theme of the Christ Emphasis Week celebration of Central Philippine University in 1996. The CEW committee tasked me to compose the theme song.

I based the lyrics from the letter I received from a dear friend expressing struggles of growing up in faith.

Reflecting on the theme through a composition, “From Worry to Glory” has been my theme in meeting trials and challenges in life. For all the possible worries that may beset our lives, the glory of God in Jesus Christ is always shining.

May all those who read this blog be refreshed and calmed by God’s assurance of hope and love in whatever situation. God has given us a firm hoist, Jesus Christ.

Be steadfast in your faith for God will always turn your worry into glory.

  3. This is the second time I’ve read this piece and the same urge to finish it once started was still as strong. Maybe it’s because the topic is about a group of people, the Mangyans, who I am familiar and had some dealings with also. Congratulations to the author who forgot to mention that he himself was born in Mangyanland.

    1. Hahahaha…when I was a kid, friends of the family would tease as a “mangyan” because I was born in Roxas, Or. Mindoro. I relished the memories of my stay with real mangyans…I could be one with them in many ways. Thanks.
