Different Age, Impaired Eyes

For every generation, for every age we belong to we look at life differently.  Different age, different perspective.  When I was a child and up to my teen years, I hated and despised my father.  I hated his strictness, his philosophy.  He ruled with an iron fist when it came to me.  They were times when both of my parents […]

On Top of the World

This morning I went grocery shopping.  I rode my bike instead of using my car.  Where I live is mostly rolling hills, sometimes it takes a lot of pedaling to reach at the top, while going down doesn’t take any effort at all.  While pedaling up hill in the sweltering heat with the extra weight from the groceries I bought, […]

Mothers, Always Wanted

A woman is one of God’s greatest gift to man.  It is the embodiment of God’s masterpiece.  A perfect work of art created by God’s own hands in his own image.  No other created being in this world that could make a man do the unthinkable and lose himself in the process the moment love sets in.  Her beauty could thaw a man’s heart no matter how frozen it is.  Melting him away in the palm of her hands, rendering him restless, the loss of appetite and the constant battle of catching a sleep.  Doing the insurmountable and making himself look foolish just to prove that his love for her is worthy. God, who appointed specific work to every creature He made.  For a woman to be a mother is the greatest occupation she could ever have.  There’s no monetary value to it.  It is done out of pure love.  There’s no love like the way a mother loves her child.  The sacrifices of carrying a child for nine months is no easy feat.  The pain she endures while she gives birth. The sleepless nights, ah, the stuff she put up with is unbelievable.  On the end of the day, she doesn’t even get a recognition, sometimes her acts are unnoticeable only to be visible when her presence is not there.  Still, she endures because of one single thing – the joy of being a mother, an act done by […]

Deadpool

A couple of days ago I watched Deadpool.  I wanted to check out what’s the fuss all about.  I keep hearing from friends and co-worker how good it is. Do not let your kids watch it.  This is different from any Marvel movies.  Speaking of a  foul-mouthed individual, he is up there on my list. But hey it’s Deadpool, it is what make him he is.  I am not here to make a review of the movie. Sometimes I get carried when I watched  a fictional character to the point that I would change my picture profile on Facebook base on that image of said character. This morning I was thinking of that, putting Deadpool on my profile.  Then I said to my self, given his characteristics what am I trying to portray about me in relation to my faith. I decided not to do it. That was said and done. After that I’m off to my morning devotions. I was reading 2 Samuel 4 where it talks about Isbosheth being murdered.  Here I am trying to forget all the violence in Deadpool and the moment I open my Bible, Isbosheth wasn’t only killed but decapitated him too.  The violence just unnerve me.  It is true that the Bible is filled with gruesome violence. I won’t deny that.  You probably asking what’s got to do with what I’m talking about. Before I go on, I am not here to promote […]

Selfish Prayer

Lately I’ve been noticing the way I pray. Most of the things I’ve been praying are things that everyone wanted. A better job, higher pay, better living standards. I pray about it hardly that I can’t help but notice that what if I pray like this for someone who is lost. I said to myself how selfish I am. That […]

The Salvation of Fear

Fear has never been so abundant this days.  From conspiracy theories to bible prophecies.  We are inundated by it everyday.  You could do a search on you tube on how many of this so-called prophets and claims that God spoke to them.  Remember Y2K,  2012 or whatever they come up with depending on the month which is base primarily on speculations.  They would set dates that some event will happen.  Only to wash their hands when said event didn’t come true.  I am not here to mock or make fun of such individual, rather to examine our hearts.  To ask our selves what really the motivation behind.  Is it to bring glory to Him or to gain recognition? Is it monetary?  Only God knows the heart.  Deuteronomy 18:22 says, “When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.” (NASB) We become obsess with it that we share and preach God’s word through fear instead of sound doctrine, love and kindness.  Do we want to be love because of fear?  I certainly don’t want to.  That’s not love at all.  2 Timothy 1:7 says,“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”(NASB) It replaces the […]

Act of Kindness

The Christian doctrine revolves around love and kindness.  The love it preaches is beyond any human’s grasp.  For one, to love someone who doesn’t love you back is just absurd and crazy.  Yet, one of Christ’s teachings is not only to love your neighbor but to love your enemies as well.  Most believer could probably do the first one but never the latter. How could you love someone who hates you, to the point that individual wishes you harm.  Looking back before you become born again, we were all enemies of God because of our sin and unrepentant nature and yet God didn’t stop loving us. He love us so much that He sent his one and only Son to save us from His wrath. I was browsing through my facebook.  One of my friends shared this article, about a guy named Carl Panzram. This guy was so vile that I’ll share two of his quotes. “I am the man who goes around the world doing people good. My motto is: Rob em, ***k em and then kill em. That’s me.”   And before his death, “Hurry up, you Hoosier bastard, I could kill ten men while you’re fooling around!”   With those words, right before his death.  I see a person who is full of hatred and vengeance.  I also see a man who is crush, broken in spirit, helpless.  That all he wants is just to end everything, […]
