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.

Photo Journal #57: July 5, 2014 (Saturday)/Transformers, God’s presence, Wisdom, Letter to Inmate, Anger Control Success #1

In my last post, I told you that reading the letter from Greg was a little stressful but I now realized, he decided to ask as many questions as possible because I am the only person he can talk to while in my case, to be honest, he is just one of my work-of-mercy beneficiaries…in other words, a charity case. That’s when I started asking myself the reason why I wrote him a letter in the first place. Certainly, it’s not just to tick off another item from my bucket list and if ever, unconsciously, it is the case, I should remind myself that doing this-writing him a letter- is more than that. While writing my second letter, I drawled on while answering almost all his questions that it ended up having six pages. I also sent him photos and a keychain. This day was also a brother-sister bonding time. We watched Transformers: Age of Instinction in 3D which I hate but left us with no choice because of my tight sked for the day. As usual, at 6 pm, I proceeded to the church to be the commentator for the mass. I saw one guy clocking me… Oooo. Hahahahah. These are the lessons I learned for the past week: 1. focus on what you can control 2. God is really up to something. 3. Be at the moment for when the sought after future comes, I’d look back on this day and say, “That day’s better.” 4. Loving is always better than being right. It may not be a justifiable expedient response nor a profitable act but it is, as mentioned by Maya Angelou, satisfying to the soul. So, I resolve not to retaliate just because I know I am right and it’s just for kindness is not after always being right. 5. God’s miracles are treasures, right? No debates on that and remember, the greatest treasures are not readily and easily found. Only the valient, the humble, the persistent, the faithful can find them. One has to look for them to find them. The greatest miracles, then, are those which need to be discovered…like…uhm, the wisdom
In a setback perhaps? I am truly happy, why? I finally heard God´s voice after His long silence. He never abandoned me. I felt like I am in a rut but I am wrong. I heard him speaking to my heart today, telling me that He knew I am in a safe zone that no matter where I go or what I do, I am totally safe and not diverted. It’s as if telling me to do the best that I can to better myself while I am on the preparation stage before taking off to another journey. I am not scared for I truly trust in Him. He is always with me We’re in this together. Congratulations dear self as well for not throwing tantrums and venomous words to a driver who’s obviously at fault. Wohoooooooo!!!! After this, I’ll start my coursera. Kikiki!
