Months ago I was chained into something that was supposed to be contrary to what I believe in. I found joy in those times. Joy that I know won’t last longer than I expected and knowing every story has an ending.
My experienced taught me a lot of things: It taught me how handle situations with respect and proper manner. It taught me that waiting is worthwile. It taught me that every timing has a greater purpose behind it.
I was engulfed by emotion but through grace I was able to dominate it with joy. I was able to move forward with the help of people pushing my back everytime I tried going back to the old ways.
I forgot who I was before, before the chains binds me, but reminded that the past was trying to mold me to become a better person. Person that will testify that every experiences has lessons that will motivate and push me to step up and become a greater person than I used to be.
Everyone’s looking for happiness and yes we deserve to be happy.
Some people tend to become rebellious when that happiness took away from us. We do things that we don’t usually do and those things are temporary happiness only.
I woke up one day and started realizing on what point of my life I am right now. What did I accomplished? What happened to me? And I realized whatever things I have right now is what really matters. I once told this to a friend that regardless of the blessing you acquire, a blessing is still a blessing and we should treasure every bit of it.
Let’s try to focus on our personal goal not on other people business. When we do that even having 1 peso can turn our day much happier than yesterday.
I was being drifted away from my usual self these past few days. Clinging to the things I thought will last forever. Hoping things will get better after the storm.
Looking to the things unseen, I was reminded that we should not expect something in return once we are done doing our part. On my side, it is hard but I am learning to accept the fact that it is really happening.
You may close your door but I will assure you mine will still open for you.
Till next time :)
Sometimes people who are usually nice are the people who suffer the most. I know, we should not expect something to receive when we give but nice people don’t deserve to suffer.
I have a lot of things thinking right now. Random things. Things that should not be a problem to me but the world enforce me to do so.
I just don’t understand why there are people who can’t apply what they are believing. Who can still be joyful knowing there are people suffering because of them.
I am always on the edge of thinking that life is unfair, but thanks be to God for reminding me that life is fair. I think it is really time for me to take His time. Believe in His perfect timing.
Psalm 30:6-12 NIV
When I felt secure, I said, “I will never be shaken.” Lord , when you favored me, you made my royal mountain stand firm; but when you hid your face, I was dismayed. To you, Lord , I called; to the Lord I cried for mercy: “What is gained if I am silenced, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your faithfulness? Hear, Lord , and be merciful to me; Lord , be my help.” You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent. Lord my God, I will praise you forever.
Why is that people only think their self?
Why is that even if it’s that person fault, the victim is still have to blame?
Why does some people don’t have compassion to the people they hurt the most?
You’ve given everything to that person yet you get what you don’t deserve.
People are unfair.
You’ve invested everything yet they paid you with pain.
May mga bagay tayong akala natin maganda sa simula. Akala natin ito ang daan dahil ito ang sa tingin nating nakakabuti. Sa sobrang pag-alala natin sa sarili madaming bagay tayong nagagawang akala natin ay tama pero mali na pala.
Madami akong ginawa na akala ko tama pa rin. Akala ko okay lang. Pero hindi pala. Madami na palang naapektuhan. Hindi na pala tama. Nadala ako ng emosyon. Nawala ako sa linya.
Nagpapasalamat ako sa Panginoon dahil nabigyan nya ako ng pagkakataon na magising sa bagay bagay at ilayo sa maling emosyon. Nagpapasalamat ako sa mga pagkakataon na binibigay nya sa akin. Nagpapasalamat ako sa pagmamahal na walang humpay. Salamat panginoon at ginising mo ako.
"What is wrong?", I asked. Then silence came.
"What’s happening?", I asked with persuasion. Silence was still there.
Then I stopped.
I sit across the river and watched it.
Mesmerized with the beauty and grace of flow then I realized I should move forward.
I started walking and smiling leaving the pain behind.
The war cannot be won alone.
We need to be equipped.
Sword, Shield, Breasplate; We need a Full Armor.
But still this is not enough. We need an army. Army that can protect and watch your back.
I just remember this verse:
Ephesians 6:10-14, 16-20 NIV
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
This is enough to conquer the war we currently have right now
I was binded by chains. Chains that I don’t want to be destroyed.
One day, I feel like someone is cutting the chains. It was painful and I ended up broken.
I tried fixing it but someone is pulling my hands to it. That someone told me to stop and look for me.
I started searching for that person and suddenly appeared. “I remember you. Where are you the whole time?” I asked. “I am always here. You were just busy fixing and polishing that chain”, that person said.
I started crying. Crying out of conviction and joy.
The scars will always be there but that person always reminded me to look up and told me that the scars caused by the chains will eventually be removed.
