it’s Your stubborn love… thank You

January 25, 2016

i might sound stupid by asking this but i’ll ask anyway. how many times have you prayed without asking for anything? that kind of prayer where you start each line with “thank you”

honestly, in my almost-ending 29 years of existence, i have done that only once. just last Christmas, i did that and it felt so real. it felt like i should have done that long ago and only now i ask myself why dont i do it more often or even constantly? aside from it being a just thing to do, it makes you feel human and it gives joy which you cannot comprehend. it makes you feel like flying and makes you realize how life should be spent here on earth. but because i am stubborn, it’s one of those that should be called once in a lifetime.

and i want to change that.

i’ll try to start doing it again tonight.

Disturb us, Lord,
When we are too well pleased with ourselves,
When our dreams have come true
Because we have dreamed too little,
When we arrived safely
Because we sailed too close to the shore.

Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly,
To venture on wider seas
Where storms will show your mastery;
Where losing sight of land,
We shall find the stars.

as i am worried about the situation of my loved ones in calumpit, bulacan (flood is still rising around the area), i read bo’s soulfood for september 26. i have started reading it last night but because of sleepiness, i was not able to finish it. tonight as i continued reading the article, i felt my heart smiling despite the worries in my head. every paragraph, every sentence in bo’s article touched my heart.

“You think you’ve got problems? Think again. You don’t!”

“If you won’t share your blessings to others, you won’t receive the maximum amount of blessings that God wants for your life.”

” The lesson?

       Don’t ever say, “It’s none of my business.”

       We are indelibly intricately connected with each other.

       When our brother is in pain, we should be in pain too.”

these are only some of the remarkable words that really made an impact on me and got me to realize and rethink of things. aah, let us be heroes even in the simplest ways. now if you got curious and you want to feel what i experienced while reading the article, just click the link below:

i hope that by sharing this, i am being a blessing to you, then you bless others, too. happy reading 🙂
