gising pa…


madaming tumatakbo sa isip ko…sa paglipat ng kalendaryo, lumipat na rin ang aking kaisipan sa panibagong yugto ng kasaysayan. umukit na naman ako ng mga pangarap sa papawirin upang isakatuparan ng isanlibot’-isang pagsisikap at pagpupunyagi. hindi maikukubli ang saya’t galak ng isang taong tumatanaw sa isang maaliwalas na bukas na sa kabila ng kadilimang tinatahak ay payapang inaasam ang pagputok ng unang silahis ng araw sa dakong silangan. madilim…literal…kita…ramdam…nanunuot sa kalamnan ang dampi ng hanging may lakip na hamog. Malapit na ang umaga. Malapit nang malagpasan ang dawag na punumpuno ng mga tinik at ulupong..at bitag na pilit na pumapatay sa maliit ngunit maalab na adhikain. Mamaya na ang bukas. At sa pagputok ng bagong araw ay sasalubungin ng tuwa’t saya ang bagong kawal ng paggawa.

Because we don’t have all the time in this world….


When you can’t reach your old friends (or when they can’t reach you!), then you should have to make new friends, spend quality time with them. Keep yourself occupied with loving people all around you. Surround yourself with people who have nothing (or less) agenda in their minds on hanging-out with you. People who love you and open their hearts to you are most likely to mourn when you die and wish that they should have spent more quality time with you. We’d been separated geographically and emotionally (you know what i mean) and we opt to find somebody new (don’t blame your friends for this, you might as well guilty of doing the same) to fill up the gap within that has been built together by you and your old friends who happened to be out of the picture. Why don’t we just spare that space for a moment for your long-lost friend? Don’t close your door yet. Reserve it for his/her because he/she deserves to find again these foundations that you both built together. There’s much more than memories by making new one, something worth remembering and treasuring of.

Make more space for new friends. Share your thoughts, your opinions, your point of views, your interests. There must have more rooms for positive spaces in your heart. Begin by getting rid of self-pity, low self-esteem, false humility, guilt, regrets. Replace those that make you mourn in despair with those that make you smile when you are being reminded of! Make yourself happy!!!

BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE ALL THE TIME IN THIS WORLD.

When that day arrive


There will be a day when our sorrows will be forgotten. There will be a day when everything we’d traded for what we obtained and for who we are at present will be justified. Every bit of pain, every drop of blood and tears, every sleepless night, every empty emotion, every delay in obtaining goal (never say failure), every frustration… every regret under the sun – these too shall be justified.

Then we will look back and realize that everything we’d been through are essential for us to grow into maturity.

Handling Losses


Losing loved ones to illness and death, losing a job due to an economic downturn, losing a close friend over a misunderstanding, and losing innocence to predators are all very difficult to handle.

Job experienced devastating losses in a short period of time. Read Job 1 to see how his initial response to his personal tragedy provides us with action steps in handling our own personal losses.

First, he mourned because of his loss. The tearing of the clothes and shaving the head indicated intense grief and was often an immediate reaction to disaster. He stopped everything to acknowledge his losses. During any loss, we must slow down long enough to remember and cry, to laugh and enjoy the memories. Mourning and grieving are natural expressions that should not be suppressed.

Second, Job worshiped in the midst of his loss. After he went through the regular mourning rituals, he responded to his tragedy with a profound expression of worship. When we experience a loss, we should recognize that God is the source of all life and is control over all things, then we can respond to Him with praise,honor,and complete reverence.

Job used this painful time to get to know God in a fuller sense. Losses are tough to handle, but thanks to the God of all comfort who comforts us in all our troubles (2 Corinthians 1:3-4).

We can maintain our relationship with God through praying, regular Bible reading, attending worship services, and fellowshipping with other Christians.

Grief


“Grief” is understatement when you lose someone whom you’d grown with. We’d grown together, shared each other’s dreams and ambitions. He’d even one of our secondary sponsors in our wedding. I want to write something all about him, how special he is to me, how we, as innocent children of God explore in the beauty of youth. But I just can’t write anything…All i can say is “thank you” for sharing your life… You are awesome! May you rest in peace, under the shelter of His wings.

A Sad Reality


Somehow, it takes our precious time backtracking because of wrong turns thru wrong decisions we had made. This should not give us a frowny face though. It is essential to correct wrong decisions and realign inaccurate tracks to stay focus in our race. We have to define our goal. Then we have to stay focused. Way to go navigator!

Live For Today


 

Sittin’ in my room staring at the wall
Wonderin’ about the meaning of it all
Why is it this thing called life
Has got me goin’ crazy
So I open up your word and let it speak to me
The purpose and the plan that you’ve designed
Is clear to see, and I believe

Chorus:
I’m gonna live for today
I’m gonna follow in your way
I’m gonna let my little light shine
Like there’s no tomorrow
I won’t worry about the past
I know my future is intact
So I’ll choose to live my life one way
I’m gonna live it for today

You told me not to worry
About what lies ahead
So I am gonna focus on today instead
Making every moment count and counting
Every single blessing
I’m gonna set my mind on the
Here and the Now
This is what I want my life to be about
And this is How…
