I read a post from a friends Facebook account and I can’t control my tears it falls down in my eyes and I feel that I missed them so much. Again, this blog site is not just my story but if I could touch your life through a story of mine I am willing to share this each day. I can’t write more about it but LEARNED TO LIVE EACH DAY that you give time in your parents, same thing to give time to our LORD. Because everything in this world is from HIM. Including our parents. Open up your heart and pray for the goodness of everyone. Don’t feel sad when your parents is giving you a lot of Do’s and Dont’s because they want you to be safe at all times. Obey your parent’s and listen to them for they know much more than you do because they experience life.And Lord is please when you obey them. But parents don’t be too much with your children because like you they also have a feelings too, being young children sometimes does not know how to do.They should be properly guided and raise them Holy in which they know that there is God, that there is Jesus Christ our Saviour. Let them know the importance of having a family and knowing Jesus Christ as our Saviour. Ephesians 6:1-14 ESV Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, with a sincere heart, as you would Christ, … I cant help myself from posting it because I really miss my parents. Though they are strict and looks like mad everyday 🙂 I proud to say that they help my siblings raise me and sent to school and even after school and even after marriage. Maybe they pray in Heaven that Lord Jesus will guide my brothers and sisters in raising me. That all of us be safe and stand. That we feel them even they are not present. That we may know what we know today. That we spread the good news of the Lord. That the FAITH in our HEART stay with us forever. May our parents see this letter: Dear Father and Mother; Thank you because you have been an instrument of the Lord for me to go out in this world. Thank you because you made me strong through the trials and pains that our family has been experience. It was May 8, 1990, when you left us Mother though I don’t understand it soo much but I cried and I know I cant see you anymore. But the pains it bring to us made me stronger… I thought the pain stops when you gone but after eight years Father gone too and goes with you…I feel sad and guilt because the day that Father died he always looking for me during dinner time, but instead of going near to him, i close my eyes and i posed like sleeping, if i only knew that this is your last day, i will wake up and get your food and i will lovingly feed you with all my heart. Im sorry for being stubborn, that i hurt you. I was young then and I do not know. Im sorry for the beef stew that i did not follow your instructions and it was cooked so spicy. Im sorry for the day that I bang the door when my project in school is not done. And im sorry for all the lies just for me to visit my friends. Dad, i have a lot of mistakes to you and even if you are so strict with me Iam still proud that you are my father despite of the other things. People may judge you how spend all of your heirs, and all of your money but I see your grief before you die, and I know that you repent on your later days of life. Again sorry and I love you both so much. May you still pray for us, and your apo’s. Loving daughter; Alma I do not have plenty of time to spend with them so for the children out there who has a complete family, a complete parents despite of their attitude please love them so much it is so hard to express your LOVE when they are gone.
Last night I learned the ABC through Christ through the help of my neighbor/friend Mona, SIs Bening, Nanay Norie, Nanay Dodeng. Since 1999 I’m searching, before I am not so sure what I am searching for,I feel empty,I thought my feeling of emptiness is just because of my family. My mother die when I was 10 and my father die when I was 18, the maturity living with out parents is too short and I feel incomplete. But years passed by, I meet people, I read a lot and I discover something different. Until finally last night, some of my question has answered.
Maybe I was destined to meet the people I mentioned above because God has a purpose for me and for my life. I learn the ABC with Christ, to Accept, to Belief and to Confess. The thought is simple yet very helpful… A- accept Jesus Christ with all your heart (John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name) B- Belief that God exist and C- confess all your mistakes.
Actually, there are other Bible verses that we discuss but I do not remember the exact verse except for John 1:12, maybe this gave impact to my life. And of course since I started reading John, partially i read it out before I do to Bible Study.
I know in my heart what I want to do, and I believe that this is happening to me because God knows my future, my past and my present, as what we know our body is the Temple of God, we only borrow this life and Body through Him live the best out of it. Be sacred and holy in the eyes of God.
I do not know how deep i can share but one thing I understand now is where I stand. I want to create a good relationship with God, i don’t care about your religion or where your Church is but as long as you teach and preach the Good way as the Father,as Jesus Christ. I also understand that preaching with His guidance, do not alter nor change what is written on the Holy Bible as this is Sacred.
For the meantime, this is what I can share, read the Book of John. And read your Bible daily as everything is written on the Bible. Like me I want everyone to learn the ABC because if the nation will do it, we can make WORLD PEACE.
Earlier today I utter a short prayer to God. I thank the Lord for everything He did to me and to my family. I also ask for His guidance for everyone. Though I know it was a very short communications with God, i feel that I am connected my tears fall down on my face. I also ask forgiveness for all the negative or wrong doings that I did in life. I also asks for his guidance for me to forgive those who hurt me, used me and abuse me.
I know inside me that God has plans for me why things are changing, I born and raise as a Catholic but since 19 years old I am experiencing this feeling of searching and emptiness. I am not converted to any religion or organization but my personal point of view is changing on beliefs, of course I am not against any other religious views but what i am trying to figure out here is I would like to invite you readers to open your heart, open your eyes and open your soul. Read your Bible and you will understand. Again, I will say it again, im in the process of moving into spiritual learning. This means a lot to me because I can now understand how life goes and what will bring me to unconditional peace of mind, my feeling of emptiness is slowly moving out of my system, i am now more mature on things and I tried to open my mind to understand the people around me. Though I know no one is perfect but I understand that I don’t need to get Human approval as long as I do it for the Glory of God.
Once again, for my readers and followers, i encourage you to do what I do and discover your self, read your Bible, a friend of mine and former college faculty told me to read the Book of John so I read it back again and I started more about it.
excerpted from online bible:
The Word Became Flesh
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.
6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
15 (John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, “This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’”) 16 Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and[b] is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.
John the Baptist Denies Being the Messiah
19 Now this was John’s testimony when the Jewish leaders[c] in Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask him who he was. 20 He did not fail to confess, but confessed freely, “I am not the Messiah.”
21 They asked him, “Then who are you? Are you Elijah?”
He said, “I am not.”
“Are you the Prophet?”
He answered, “No.”
22 Finally they said, “Who are you? Give us an answer to take back to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?”
23 John replied in the words of Isaiah the prophet, “I am the voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way for the Lord.’”[d]
24 Now the Pharisees who had been sent 25 questioned him, “Why then do you baptize if you are not the Messiah, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?”
26 “I baptize with[e] water,” John replied, “but among you stands one you do not know. 27 He is the one who comes after me, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie.”
28 This all happened at Bethany on the other side of the Jordan, where John was baptizing.
John Testifies About Jesus
29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! 30 This is the one I meant when I said, ‘A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’ 31 I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel.”
32 Then John gave this testimony: “I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. 33 And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ 34 I have seen and I testify that this is God’s Chosen One.”[f]
John’s Disciples Follow Jesus
35 The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. 36 When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, “Look, the Lamb of God!”
37 When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. 38 Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, “What do you want?”
They said, “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), “where are you staying?”
39 “Come,” he replied, “and you will see.”
So they went and saw where he was staying, and they spent that day with him. It was about four in the afternoon.
40 Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus. 41 The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ). 42 And he brought him to Jesus.
Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon son of John. You will be called Cephas” (which, when translated, is Peter[g]).
Jesus Calls Philip and Nathanael
43 The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. Finding Philip, he said to him, “Follow me.”
44 Philip, like Andrew and Peter, was from the town of Bethsaida. 45 Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”
46 “Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?” Nathanael asked.
“Come and see,” said Philip.
47 When Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, he said of him, “Here truly is an Israelite in whom there is no deceit.”
48 “How do you know me?” Nathanael asked.
Jesus answered, “I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you.”
49 Then Nathanael declared, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the king of Israel.”
50 Jesus said, “You believe[h] because I told you I saw you under the fig tree. You will see greater things than that.” 51 He then added, “Very truly I tell you,[i] you[j] will see ‘heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on’[k] the Son of Man.”
Hope this could help you the way it helped me.
Building a career is quite exciting. Whether it is in Hospitality, IT, Electronics, whatever industry. It requires a lot of patience, perseverance and courage. Why?
1. Patience: because there would be pressures and studies along the way, whether we like it or not, not every one is brilliant to know exactly what their JOB unless properly orient, train or coach. There are cooperative boss, co employees, clients, machine, system etc. but there is not willing to share or use anything for your personal growth. There is boss who feed you with negative thoughts to boost your energy but the impact is low self-esteem to employees. But there are bosses who bring out your spirit to become successful. Whatever trials you face along the way, you need to stay calm and patience. Like what I’ve said in my recent write ups, never ever give up and never make decisions when you are emotional.
2. Perseverance: you need to show off your dedication into your work, you need to show off that you are worth it. That you are sincere in the place that you are holding now. It’s not just about the money but the dignity in your personality.
3. Courage: show your talent. do not afraid to show it off. Be creative, Do not Show any signs of fear in everything, as long as you know what you are doing in a way that you conduct research, plus or minus, do not afraid to ask questions when you do not know. Make sure when you give or open a topic you really know everything about it. There are ways to know everything use a connections online.
if this could help you. share to other people whom you think you need this piece of advise. The above tips could help you become more excited in every career you get into
Luckily I have a chance to make a short tour in Calatagan, Batangas. Just for fun my family and I visited a relative in Calatagan, Batangas yesterday August 21, 2012. While our vehicle is moving I am trying to capture every single scene I pass by, my favorite subject is the sky and a little about greenery and fields. As it really feels out of stress, something like very stress free scenery and worry free places I have ever visit. Plus that I am thinking that God is watching over me. Here are some of the photos that I got during our trip. Most pictures has been attached to my Facebook account and I think this is more right.
But for my readers who really read what is my blog all about. Well, basically I capture this pictures because I want to share a faith in my heart that despite of difficulties I meet everyday, there’s always a reason to smile about. The lush greens that I saw during our trip. The great sky and colorful sunset who urge me to smile though he sets down. The cow eating along the grass and streams. Who reminds me that I also have a right to do what is best for me and for my career, who define FREEDOM of expressions in my mind. Why? Because literally the cow does not care who owns the lot, their concern is just to eat, so why must I feel ashamed in every single problem I meet, I will think like a cow…hahaha… I only care for the positive side of LIFE, no need to entertain the bad side of it, all things will come along and so be it…
On my humble opinion this small things that I experience means a lot to me. Plus that I take the trip with my family.How I wish I have a DSLR Camera with me, I can shoot photos better, soon…
Happy reading folks and thank you for paying attention on my write ups…
