The Battle is the Lord's - Reflections: January 17, 2018

The battle is the Lord’s!

Sometimes, we fail to realize how big of a God we have. He is bigger than our problems, He is bigger than our fears. He is bigger than anything we can ever face. Most especially, He is bigger than our sins. God’s goodness also abounds forever and overflows but sometimes because maybe of our shame, we hide ourselves from the Lord and therefore misses out on His grace and mercy.

In my Uncleanliness, God Loves Still Me - Reflections: January 11, 2018

Reading from the Gospel of Mark 1:40-45 

The reading is about the healing of a leper and this is a remarkable event. It really shows Jesus compassion and love even for the outcasts of society. It teaches that we too should be mindful of everyone including those who do not belong to "our class" in society. For us to learn to reach out to everyone even those who we think are not worthy... because for Jesus, for God, everyone is worthy.

And for myself, I realize that even in my sinfulness and uncleanliness... Jesus loves me and forever his love for me will endure, regardless of how "dirty" I think  am.

God is indeed good!

Thoughts to Ponder

Something to think about.... 

I cannot pretend to know what you are going through right now or what you have gone through or what you will be going through tomorrow, but one thing is for certain, if you persist on doing what you have always done... the end result will always be the same.. and what you're feeling right now will persist until YOU DECIDE TO CHANGE... how you think, how you act and how you are living your life right now... 

Decide that you want something better, something more.. something different or else you will always end up with the SAME THING.

Also, don't forget to PRAY, God will always guide you towards the right path. Pray for guidance and discernment on where you need to go and what you need to do. Once you realize the path you need to go to... DECIDE TO CHANGE, so you can CHANGE YOUR LIFE TOO!!!

Reflection, The Song

I love this song and I love how Lea Salonga sang it. It talks about someone's struggle to show the real person inside and it is always a trending topic. Be you, be yourself and all that stuff about embracing yourself. 

I will delve about loving yourself in the future as this also embraces the idea of positivity and this is what this blog is all about. 

For now, I will stop here and let you revel in the beautiful music

New Year... New Me?

Ha! Another year... another chance... another...

I'm really not sure what 2018 will bring but one thing is certain... things are looking up...

No.. things didn't miraculously add up and everything is fine. but I'm positive that things will for the better. We are learning... we are growing.

New me? Nah, I don't think so. We all promise to be new people when the new year comes but when we think about it, nothing really significant ever changes within our selves. We might have learned a few things, small changes here and there but nothing big ever really changes.

Why? Because no one changes over night, all changes occur in small doses, so even if its the new year, we can't simply change because we think about it. The truth is we can change slowly not abruptly.  So the new year will come and go... but we will not change with it..

So the new year will come but there definitely will not be a new me... not yet anyways... it will come and it will come slowly but surely...

Saying Goodbye To A Dear Friend

Christmas won't be such a happy occasion this time round... Losing someone is always a sad event. Fr. Joel was a pillar of our church, our parish priest. On the 13th, he suddenly collapsed after suffering from a massive heart attack. According to those who brought him to the hospital, he was DOA. They tried to revive him, to no avail and so at around 3pm, he was declared dead. He left so abruptly, so unexpectedly, the whole church is mourning for him even as we laid him to his final rest today, his loss is ever felt, especially that the Simbang Gabi is already starting, we will forever miss his homily's, his solemn prayer during consecration and his beautiful singing voice, which more often that not, you will hear during his homilies or talks or seminars that he would give his parishioners. I will miss him terribly...

Well, one positive thing I think that has come of this is that he is now resting... He has always said that he was tired, stressed and even in  pain, now he I'm sure he doesn't feel any of those anymore but feels the joy of being with the Father and I'm sure he's happiness is overflowing there in heaven.

The lessons we learned from him, the goodness of his heart and his generosity and forgiving heart will always be remembered by those whose lives he had touched.

Rest now, Fr. Joel. Your work is done, it's now our turn to do the work...
