Since I resigned from work, I had more time preparing meals especially breakfast!
One breakfast, I cooked for me and my roomie some buttered carrots, omelette and our favorite chorizo made in Cebu. It’s just nice to have normal meals on weekdays.
I craved also for some sweets this week that I bought donuts and a box of chocolate-filled pretzel sticks.
I realized how dependent we are with food that sometimes we feel like we are about to die if we can’t eat a proper meal on time.
I’m glad that Jesus taught us about prayer and fasting. Not just that it reminds me that I don’t live by bread alone, but it’s an amazing journey with the Lord as He enables me to just be dependent and focused on Him alone. It is a time of prayer and studying of the Bible instead of eating meals. It could be a one meal fast or three meals fast and it could be three days or a week. Aside from meals, there’s also a fast from the things that usually take away our time for God like watching television and/or the internet (Facebook, etc.)
If you haven’t tried prayer and fasting, I really recommend you give it a try. You will experience God much deeper.
Today, God reminded me that in wherever place we may be, there will always be a crooked and perversed generation. That’s why He commanded us, His children to be a light of the world.
I’ve been struggling with people recently that I stored in my heart a lot of negative emotions. I realized that there will always be people that could test pur character. The sad part is we can never have the power to change them. What we can only control is how we respond to them – our heart.
I pray that from this day onwards, I will press on to be a light and not to put God in shame.
Fear of the Lord is indeed the beginning of knowledge and wisdom.
Philippians 2:14-15 said to stop grumbling but instead prove that we His children are blameless that we may be a light to this crooked generation. To be like Jesus is what God has wanted us to be.
I’m sleepy already but I’m still unable to sleep. I have so many things in my mind and in my heart that I just want to sort them out before I fall to sleep.
The past week has been filled with a lot of lessons learned, reminders, reflections, deep thoughts, controlled emotions, stories and action items.
I wish there is a system that would automatically organize each and put them into specific folders to be processed by my mental faculty.
Now, I really want to sleep. All of these in my mind, I just want to entrust to God. Not for Him to sort it out for me, but for me to be able to sort out things and make it aligned to His will.
Indeed, apart from Jesus, my life will forever be unsorted.
Tonight, I’m letting tomorrow worry for itself. Me? I will sleep in peace.
Good night! 🙂
