Lessons from God

I learned a lot this week!

First, God doesn’t only open windows when He closes doors, He opens up a universe. Along that line, God assures me of the reasons why He closes doors: God doesn’t want me to have a limited life, bad company, and heartaches. I can always be certain that when he closes doors, it’s all for the best. And I’m sure it is. There’s another one that I learned about this concept. In one of the readings I had, an author explains its connection with preparation and more blessings. The closing of certain doors points us to the right doors, and these right doors are opened to prepare us for future doors. When previously opened doors we went through closed, it’s only because they already served their  purpose. We remember broken relationships, moving from one career to the next, death of someone. Lastly, God assures those doors for us won’t close up or escape our notice, for those He loves He guides, the favored He guides the steps. No matter how hurtful it is, we need to only trust. God is omnipresent and omniscient after all. He sees all angles, all sides, all effects which our inane, proud minds cannot comprehend. Another thing I learned tonight after watching a certain movieto never lose that magic – that belief I once had that brought me to places. IT’s the exact feeling the movie relived in me. While it was playing, my heart sang, my heart leaped for excitement – suddenly all else become possible. The movie also instills tenacity, positive thinking, importance of believing, joie de vivre, je ne sais quois. To summarize it in one sentence: TO ALWAYS BELIEVE IN MIRACLES LIKE A CHILD. Third, I learned during the week that life is meant to be lived, to be excited about, to be enjoyed, to be cherished. I should not be afraid. I am reminded of my young age when I just focused on the now while leaving  all else to God for I trust in His care. I didn’t command Him to do this and that for me, He wasn’t a genie, He was a friend I could confide in and talked to about my daily concerns. God knows I did not ask for summa, I simply imagine it. I didn’t ask for US or UK, He simply gave. He is always full of surprises, and His surprises are always better than what we pray for. Fourth, I resolve not to question people’s success because who they are is only a product of their daily habits which they have been doing for five years. My task is to choose habits that will make me in the next five years. The last five years is up, but the next ones aren’t done yet. I can do so much more, if I do the grunt work.

Daily Message for God #8

Dear Jesus,

No matter what we do, we can never control our lives and we can never be fully prepared. You reminded us that the only way to be fully equipped for the future is to bring You along with us, to establish a relationship with You because it’s the only thing that doesn’t fade. I entrust the future to You, whatever it is.

I realized the importance of ensuring my retirement and health coverage, especially my Philhealth contributions. That’ll be my first target. We need financial literacy and discipline to prepare for the future.

Love you so much,

Your Kimkim
