    I've tried these myself and wonder if I am close to the right interpretation...


    (1) Nahihirapan ako mag paliwanag sayo.

    I have difficulty explaining this to you.



    (2) Ano gagawin ko para maniwala ka sakin.

    What do I do to make you believe me?



    (3) Alam ko mahal kita at hindi kita niloloko.

    Know I love you and I'm not fooling (or joking with) you.



    Thanks for the assistance.

    All your translations are essentially correct.
    Just a few fine points:

    (1) Nahihirapan ako mag paliwanag sayo.

    I find it difficult to explain (myself) to you.
    (Your translation "I have difficulty explaining this to you" would strictly be "Nahihirapan akong ipaliwanag ito sa iyo").

    (2) Anong gagawin ko para maniwala ka sakin?

    (Better written as: Ano ang dapat kong gawin para maniwala ka sa akin?)
    What do I have to do/What should I do to make you believe me?

    (3) Alam ko na mahal kita at hindi kita niloloko.
    I know (I am sure that) I love you and that I am not deceiving you.
