Sleeping not until it’s almost time to wake up again. Been busy again for the past few days. Passing through the eye of a needle. But am I not an expert when it comes to that? The only way to pass through that hard and almost narrow road is to toughen up a little. Before we know it, the stitches of life will make a beautiful tapestry. Tapestry. I guess I’ve used that word or this description before. But the eye of a needle–I guess not. 🙂
Reasons may not surface at our own whim. You have to let it come to you. And even if you don’t know, is that a reason not to have faith. I guess faith happens when you don’t know what will happen and yet you think that it has already happened. It’s higher than hope, I guess.
People may be hard to penetrate, but as they say, there’s no hard bread for a hot coffee (walang matigas na tinapay sa mainit na kape). I guess it means that kindness and goodness softens the heart.
It’s rainy right now like I worry about my shoes and stuff like that. Or maybe because I’m just tired and sleepy.
If you happen to hold on to read until this part, well…congrats! Iguess, I just want to say something but don’t want to be specific so I try to be vague.
With every twist and turn…
Holding on to a lot of things…
Barely keeping it together…
If you could put some things down…
What would you choose?
My heart is being broken because this high institution is losing its touch in my life.
I guess the lesson here is, no matter how long you’ve been around and no matter how many members you have–don’t rest on your laurels. Don’t stop spreading the Good News–to reach out to those who don’t know Him.
It’s like the universe telling me to stop.
I have eaten all the junk foods I can eat the whole day. Doritos, Cheetos, Nutrilicious iced tea. Then lengua dish (beef tongue), rice, hopia, Nutrilicious iced tea. Then hopia again. Then slice of baked mac, Cheetos, can of coke. Then dinner, fried chicken, rice. I wanted to end my dinner with something sweet and so I decided to buy choco sundae from DQ, but there was a long line. I was already exhausted so I decided not to fall in line. I next tried the Milo ice cream at the 3rd floor of the mall. I thought it was the better choice because it was tasty and definitely more affordable. But then the Milo lady told me that ice cream was not available already. I went to Quickly to buy Choco Chill instead but the lady told me that it was fixed on the big size and it was so expensive. I lfet and decided to just buy buko juice from Pao Tsin. But the line was also long. Finally, I have decided to just call it a night and go back to the boarding house. Whew!
I’ll do better tomorrow.
My soul is weary with sorrow;
strengthen me according to your word.
29Keep me from deceitful ways;
be gracious to me through your law.
Days may be busy. But it’s all Yours God. Be with me in every step of the way.

I’m on Day 3.
18Open my eyes that I may see
wonderful things in your law.
God, please open my eyes so that I may see the goodness in all your commands so that I may obey it with all my heart–with gladness and joy because You want to and because I love You.
Speaking of CRAVE, according to Pastor Jo, Penang has the best food. I should go there to eat. Now I have two on my list on places to go to just to eat–first is Bacolod, and then Penang, Malaysia. 🙂
Some things are really hard to reach.
This soup is okay. Lots of crab meat but I am a bit allergic to crab that was why I was worried. But I still enjoyed the fried chicken this restaurant is famous for afterwards.
There is a value meal in chowking, one of the chinese food place here and the chao fan value meal is really okay. It comes with 3 piece siomai and small drink. I love eating thi inside the bus on my way home to lipa 🙂
I envision a Philippine-loving Filipinos. Filipinos working together to help each other. Filipinos who are God-centered. This is the only way for this country to get out of the rut. We should not just be concerned with our country but we should also do everything we can to make this country really progressive.
Last Thursday, we had a small group meeting. We met at CBTL in Makati. The topic was sharing the word. As I left the meeting that night, I was thinking that there was no one that I know of yet whom to share the Word with. I was doing my review of whom to text before going to sleep when I received a message from my cousin asking me to read the Bible to her father. Now her father is something else…he’s not exactly the type who will just listen–he has an opinion of his own. We’ve had several encounters before when I was still young and so immature. I was scared of getting shouted at. But as written in the Bible, God is so good that He will not ever leave us especially when He commands us to do something. And so after some beating around the bush, I went to their house and asked how he was doing. Then he opened up and told me that his disease might cause him his life. That was when I started to share the Word. And I was surprised because he listened and responded to me.
It was as simple as that. He just listened. I read to him the story of David and Goliath.
Once again, I have witnessed the power of God. Thank You God for letting me witness a miracle. 🙂
