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, I became a ninang again. I lost track to how many godchildren I have already. 🙂 It is a privilege for me to be asked as a ninang because it means the parents want me to take part in their journey in bringing up their child. Since I became a Christian, it was my first time to really witness a dedication and be a part of it. And I was really blessed!
This is me and my kumare, Rhodes with Baby Rikhaela
After the dedication, my brother, Christian and I watched the movie, “Life of Pi”. It was interesting because I remembered when I was in highschool and college, some of my very close friends, well even until now calls me “Pay”, “Pi” and the Pi sign. So I felt like it is my movie. Hehehe… Just a little bit 😉 But anyway, I was totally clueless what the movie was all about. And I was amazed that the gospel was even shared in the movie. Really cool. I have many favorite parts in the film but I was struck by the last few conversations of Pi and the writer. The goal of Pi was not just to tell the story but to help the writer believe in God. At the last part, Pi asked the writer which version of the two stories did he believe. Then, the writer responded, it was the first one. Then Pi told him, it is the same with God. How I interpret it is that the writer wasn’t able to see what really happened in Pi’s journey. He wasn’t there. And he can’t really be sure that the first version was the real one. But he believed in Pi. Just like believing in God. 🙂
Lastly, God indeed speaks through others… I have received wisdom today from someone which I didn’t expect but was praying for it. Isn’t God amazing? He hears our prayers. He answers.
Good night. 🙂
Just some thoughts before I sleep, which I would love to have your thoughts on it too…
If you prayed for something, but not really serious about it, though you are hoping it would come true, then that prayer got answered. How would you respond to it?
Something, I really need to ask God again.
Tonight is a perfect night to be able to spend a great, quality time with the Lord.
Indeed, it is a privilege to worship the Almighty Father who is perfect, holy and powerful.
Thank You Father for this time.
I pray that you were pleased.
I love You Lord.
Have you been praying for something and thinking that God will never answer you? Well, don’t give up praying because God answers. Not all the time the answer that we want, but for sure, it is always for our best.
Just want to encourage you with my own story too. -> HE Answers.
