Hold on and keep the faith

This year is not a good year, said my brother.  It is because of the trials that they have been encountered.  First is when his eldest daughter had an operation due to appendicitis. Second, the same daughter got admitted due to dengue fever, and his son suffered from severe cough.  Because of what happened, they are now in debts and my brother is so worried.  Even told me how they will be able to survive now that their salary is not enough to pay their debts.  As a family, we do extend our help as far as we could.  We saw the pain in my brother’s eyes and I pray that they will overcome these trials in life.

The other day, I get the chance to talk to my brother.  I lend an ear because I can sense the pain and struggles in his heart.  I so wish I could help him more but my resources in limited.  I do help my brother and family that we will be able to overcome these trials in life and I pray that God will give us strength to survive.  I have faith that the Lord will help us because He will not give us trials that we can’t handle.  This is a test on how strong our beliefs and faith in him.  I do hope that my brother won’t give up.  Instead he will hold on and keep the faith for there is always a rainbow after the rain.  God is always their to help and lend a hand to us.  Just pray and have faith in Him.

Let us not forget to pray and talk to Him

I like to travel but after the bombing incident few months ago in some part of the country, I got scared. I always pray to God to guide me and keep me safe always even if it is a short travel. I have experienced bombing incident before and it took me almost a month to recover. I am shocked and cannot sleep straight at night because when I close my eyes, the flash the bomb that explodes distracts me. We do not know what is ahead of us, and bad people are just around the corner, so it is best to always pray.

Sometimes in our life we forget to offer prayers to God. We forget to talk to him and give some of our time to him because we get busy with our job, life, and earthly doings. We only remember Him when we encounter trials, difficulties, troubles, emergency and the likes. The worse is, we are complaining why it is happening to us. And why He let these things happens to us, the questions that only we can find answer and solutions. We should remember that God is our refuge; He is the source of everything. We should offer to him everything that we do so everything will fall into places. When bad things happen to us, let us not lose focus, because He only wants us to wake up and remember Him.

It will be over soon

Some part of the country is experiencing too much raining and flooding.  Because of the non-stop rains, some rivers overflows that causes the flooding.  There are areas in Luzon are now in the state of calamity.  If you were to look at the situation, it will really breaks your heart.  I can see the sad faces of people who are affected, but they still manage to smile.  Which is a good sign.  Also, a good attitude to have.  The best thing that they should do.  Smile even if the situation is disappointing because smiling helps to uplift our spirit and will to continue living.  This is just temporary.

The prayer has been answered because the rain slowly calms down and eventually will stops soon.  After that, it is a new beginning of a blessed life.  No matter how bad the situation is, let us always remembers that God never forgets us.  Soon He will give what we deserves.  All we just have to continue moving on  and enjoy the journey of living.  Good or bad thing happens, let us embrace it with smile and happy faces.  The hardships that we have experiencing now will be over soon.  Calamity does happens to remind us of the forgotten environment.  Let us make it livable, clean and green.
