Transformed Love Story!

There was this married lady, who never really has it jolly with her husband. She was a quick-tempered, and vituperative screw of a lady herself but she discovered that her husband was a more violent and unforgiving man himself. He complained bitterly about his wife, and being given to violent tempers and vengeful assaults, he never bat an eyelid to descend heavily on his wife at the slightest error or provocation and would mercilessly beat health out of her bones. The wife would often end in hospital with fractures, still frothing to kill her husband for his perceived devilry and wickedness. After a spell of unabated, reciprocative assaults and troubles between the couples, concerned neighbours advised them to seek divorce. Knowing both of them still secretly loved themselves, but could not really fathom what the difference was between them, they were both reluctant to consider divorce, and yet knew they could tolerate each other’s presence enough to engage in another fight! 

At long last, this pummeled but unconquered lady heeded an old friend and paid a clandestine visit to an old seer and diviner. She narrated her ordeal and for a long time thereafter, the blind seer was silent and thoughtful. At length, the powerful diviner discovered the embittered lady wanted a dramatic physical remedy with a dramatic result. He knew the lady would not consider any advice for change of perception, manners and attitude but a strong, medicinal potion, he proceeded to give her a supposed mystical substance. Unknown to her, it was a mere school chalk ground into a powder. The seer asked the lady to make incisions on her knees and lips, and then rub in the magic substance. He strongly warned the lady that the magical, potent charm worked stupendously by pressing the incised lips together at the face of provocation and bending the knees to kneel on the ground. He warned in stern terms that whenever she spoke or served food to her husband, her lips should be pressed together in muteness while she knelt before him. If he for whatever reason got angry and uttering spiteful words of abuse, she should also quickly do the same for the magic charm to work. He told her the magic should definitely take total effect of placidity on the husband within five days of diligent application. The lady profusely thanked the blind diviner and left. 

At home, the lady would dutifully and diligently kneel down at every given opportunity in a reverent act of submission to offer food to her husband, place his bath, greet him and conscientiously attend to him in the house. If he happened to criticize any thing or scold her for ineptitudes, she determinedly kept sealed lips. With time, the husband started to notice his wife’s gradual change into a dutiful, submissive and reverent wife. She became very conscientious in home-keeping, and would never utter any word of reply in disrespect or flippancy. Her sense of servitude and profound honour became so adoring and overwhelming that the husband thought an angel must have done a miracle of conversion on his wife in her dream. 

In fact, he believed his prayers for a peaceful home had been answered through a sudden miracle. The wife also noticed within some days that her husband had become more considerate, never complained anymore and stayed more at home. He even bought some new dresses, took her out on dates and parties and flirtingly courted her all over again. They became a very happy couple noticeable to their bewildered neighbours. One night after an episode of lovemaking, the wife softly showed her husband an envelop she found in his pocket while doing his dirty clothes, the fulfilled man discovered it was a letter of divorce he had secured but forgot to implement on his wife since her transformation. He tore it to shreds and lovingly cuddled his adorable wife. They were so happy to have learnt their lesson through the episodes of the difficulties and problems they have gone through. They were not only happy, the neighbours were even at peace. They had a better understanding of what marital trials and understanding should be, and they were so happy.

Have you ever been into a situation in your life where you have no idea how to get out? 

... your mental capacity has not been working?
... your dignity is at stake?
... your whole life is a mess?
... you question yourself so much with many why's?

In other words, your entire sanity is struggling, you don't even know how you get there in the first place!

Probably, the most dangerous situation! Because this situation might lead you to surrendering your sanity to hell. It may lead you astray.

Some people chose to deal it with drugs, sex, men, suicide... many things! Things that will solve their problem temporarily or things that they thought they could escape the situation.

I know this kind of life sucks!

But don't give up! 

I have been there many times in my life!

I have been into many shameful situations!

In fact, right now I am there again...

But I never give up. I know God will not give me a trial that I couldn't deal with. All I wanted to do is giving it all to God, I couldn't solve my problem alone. I need God's intervention. All throughout my life,   this is how I win. Through my prayers to God.

Sometimes, God has a purpose and He wants us to stand firm to Him alone, not to rely on our own power and understanding. We may not know His purpose at the "trial" moment but as soon as we pass the trials and tribulations we could clearly see it's divinely purpose and how strong we became.

Other times, we are the ones who created our own mess; we may not realize but this is when we let satan rule our lives. There is a saying that says, "Never give the devil a ride for he will always want to drive." The devil lured us with richness, happiness... a life that we enjoy for a moment but not the lasting joy that we always wanted.

Either way, remember God is always with us willing to give us infinite second chances. He forgets and He forgives. He never count how many times we messes our lives. He is just there, waiting for us to go back to Him. We are always welcome to Him, He even sacrifices Himself to pay for our sins on the cross. That's how much God loves us.

In life's trials and tribulations (sickness, financial difficulites, love hardships and etc.), don't ever give up! Pray for God's guidance and mercy.

When in doubt and in trouble, say this powerful words:

"With Jesus' stripes, ___(your situation)___ is healed. 

Through His blood in Calvary,  __(your situation)____ have been cleansed."

Now, I am Free!

Just don't lose hope. Give it all to God. And have faith. Rely in His divine power.

Finally, go out to the world and have your head up high!

Be proud of who you are regardless of anything else!


"If God is with me, who can be against me?"

We have been taught if it's meant to be it's meant to be no matter what. I remember back in my grade school on our catechism class, the catechist said in the book of Genesis God took out one of Adam's rib and He created a partner for him where Adam named her Eve. So that means before we were born God already made a great partner for us. Which also means that we should not be worrying who will be our partner forever because God have already taken care of it. Am I getting it right?

As a girl I dreamed of having a happy family, a faithful, loving husband who is also this and that.  In other words a perfect family! But it's not easy to get that dream. I guess it's because I saw things in a different way- perfection or maybe because I am busy looking around! As far as I remember I have a very long list the whole page of my notebook is not enough! Can you imagine? I have a checklist with me! My first relationship wasn't fun at all because as far as I am concern I was constantly checking my list? I was looking for perfection. Didn't work out (or maybe because I was still super immature and still embracing my "all me" moments.) Regardless, I was always questioning why some people have their relationships survive? So I thought maybe I was with the wrong guy. It hurts to be heartbroken but I always wondered why it doesn't hurt that much. I don't have a pinching hurt in my heart as my aunt have described. I figured maybe I didn't meet him yet.

On my university days my friends have great relationships and there I am still looking for Mr. Right. I was jealous (not the negative jealousy though) because most of the time I don't have a date. That life sucks especially on Valentine's day! Good thing I survived (well, of course). After my graduation, I was still looking for him! He didn't even come on my mid-20's!

Where is he?

I remember my grandma used to tell me, when he comes you'll know it in your heart. You will have an indescribable feeling like MAGIC! Well, I don't think she's right. I found someone but I didn't feel anything magical, I was happy at the time but I felt alone and there is something missing... love. I was happy but I don't love him! I couldn't even believe that I am being dishonest to myself when I said I love him when in fact I don't. I thought maybe there is no such thing as LOVE. Grandma was all wrong! Love doesn't exist. People get into relationship and marriage because they are happy together. Period. And oh maybe because others are just lucky they found their true love. Grandma also said to me, DO NOT RUSH because you might miss him. Some people are fool they rush into things without realizing what they're doing. Maybe she's right on this one. She also added if you find him nothing will separate you. I asked her why is that? She answered, because he's the man God had made for you. It won't look so perfect but you'll feel you're in the perfect arms.

Grandma just made my mind and heart a "hopeless romantic" because I carried those words all throughout my life of searching. I was constantly looking for that perfect arms!

He will come when you least not expecting!

Okay, enough said. I am in a relationship but I don't feel like I am in the perfect arms and for some reason I am still on the look out! Oh yeah, now I am positive Grandma was wrong. And I am right. Love does not exist. Right?

Well, WRONG!!!

One fine day, on a beautiful Christmas eve I found the most amazing discovery in the entire universe! In the mid-corner of the table I saw something! Something MAGICAL!!! I believe I saw what grandma used to tell me over and over again when I was a little girl. The boy's eyes were so mesmerizing when he met mine. I feel magic in the air! Oh my God, my grandma was right! I cannot believe it, she was right! I felt love at first sight. Is this real? Why am I feeling this emotion, there is no love, right?

When True Love hits you, nothing can take it away from you.

Now I know grandma knows what she's talking about. Love is real. It does exist. There are also other things I've discovered... that love is selfless. It needs lots of patience and understanding. It's not about who you're with but it's who you'll become. It's a hard work too and forgiving. Yes, it's magical yet mysterious. I also believe that God also plays a big role in holding a relationship and marriage to last. After all,  He is the One who created me out of my guy's one rib.

If it's meant to be, it's meant to be? Hmmm... we'll see!!!

One Door Closes..Another Opens

"When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, trust Him fully and let go, only one of two things will happen, either He'll catch you when you fall, or He'll teach you how to fly!

The power of one sentence! God is going to shift things around for you today and let things work in your favor. If you believe, send it. If you don't believe, delete it. God closes doors no man can open & God opens doors no man can close.." Revelations 3:8

When you reach the end of your rope, You will find the hem of his garment.

"The 8 Second Prayer" 
"Lord, I love you and I need you, Come into my heart, and bless me, 
My  family, my home, my finances, 

And all of my friends, 

In Jesus name. Amen."

I received this email from my Mom, I thought it's worth spreading on to the world. I hope you were touched by the Holy Spirit. God bless us all!

Choosing Between Love, Feelings and Emotions

There comes a time of our lives where we have to choose. We choose between our feelings and emotions, other times we choose through love. If we chose through love, we fly; if we choose our feelings and emotions, we become confuse and things doesn't make sense. I've been reading a book for a while it's called, "Love is not a Feeling but a Choice" it says our love is not made through feelings but are made by our choices. When I first read this book I was still in the university with the belief that love composed of our feelings and emotions to the other person. But as my perception matures I finally realized that LOVE indeed is a CHOICE.
How do we choose? As human nature, it still involve feelings and our emotions. Sometimes our feelings and our emotions conflicts us, other times they click. But if we choose with our hearts, that is through love, we definitely have made our best choices. Feelings and emotions deceives us, our hearts don't. One reality check is choosing between our heart's desires versus our own desires. We may love something or say love somebody but that person doesn't have the criteria that we have set for ourselves or she doesn't have the means that our parents and friends are expecting you to have. The tendency is to forget our heart's desires and continue to struggle with our feelings and emotions just to satisfy our own set of standards and other's expectations of you. We, most of the time live through people's expectations, the reason why it is hard for us to choose. We don't care about ourselves but we care more on other's perspectives on us. You know we only live once on this earth so we should choose on what our hearts are saying and should not be based on our feelings and emotions. Because most of the time our feelings and emotions are the results of the outside force, that is based on other people's ideas and expectations on us and not based on our heart's desires.

Hold on to your DREAM

Archive: The Word for you today

"Though the vision tarry, wait for it... it will surely come."
                                                            - Habakkuk 2:3

Whether you're in a prison cell like Joseph, a soup kitchen in an inner city or at home with small children, God hasn't abandoned the dream He placed in your heart. You may not know how to get from where you are to where your dream would take you, but God knows! Simply ask Him to reaveal the next step. The more you envision yourself leading in the boardroom, launching your own business, serving a ministry, writing your first book or helping others through your unique gifts, the sooner it will become a reality. Before our vision becomes clear God gives us glimpses of it - like a picture developing from a soft hue into a sharp resolution.

Take your God-given vision and run with it. Allow it to fuel your motivation to perform to the best of your ability in your present position, while always remaining in communication with Him who knows and loves you best. Today, pray: " Lord, I thank you for all You've given me - even those things that seem unfair and unjust, even the scars that have been inflicted by those intending evil against me. Empower me to do my best, to remain Christ-like and positive,because I know that where I am right now is not where You're taking me. Grant me glimpses of Your vision for my future so that my understanding may grow in accordance with Your timing. Give me patience along the way and faith to trust that You are working for my good every moment of the day. Amen."

"Wait and see the goodness of our Lord God." - joyce

Why GOD is Everything To Me

It is better to trust in the Lord
than to put confidence in man.
- Psalm 118:8

I have felt God's love for me eversince I learnt how to breathe in my mother's womb or maybe from the first time I have a pulse. For some reason, God have chosen me to live inspite of a devastating experience I had in my mother's womb. Miraculously as a fetus I was forming normally without any discrepancies in my chromosomes and I was born alive and normal. Well, I just need to spend my early days in the incubator because I was a tiny and a very delicate baby. Just imagine how crucial my life was but maybe God has a great plan for me that He took care of me in my mother's womb.

When I am starting to build my own character and personality, I am lucky enough that my Mother have a strong belief in God that she helps me to build a strong foundation with Him. I remember as a child I am very active to Church activities not only in my Church as a Catholic but she also allowed me open my eyes to other Christian religion where it helps me to become open to ideas and beliefs of different sectors and to understand them and to be non-judgmental.

But there is one thing that I became certain, "Never question nor forsake GOD." Throughout my life of discovering I have come to know that everything we are, are from God. Every atom and every cell of every living thing are all from God's creation. Science and some spiritual gurus have been saying that it is from the highest form of a matter but where is the "matter" came from? I think it is from God. There have been few debates of evolution theories but no one could ever explain where life comes from.

 "Where science ends, Faith begins"

 James A. Keen, a Pastor from the Missionary Baptist Mission  has a good explanation regarding this and I like the statement he gave as a conclusion, he said,  "Don’t be afraid of science. Understand its rightful place and use the good science to accomplish God’s will. Yet, do not be lured into an idolatry that neglects faith in our loving God and exalts man’s reason. True believers have always faced a mountain of critics with lots of deceptively appealing reasons to reject the truth. Their arguments have come and gone but the truth of God has never changed."

Everything he said is true, God is everything we are, whether we like it or not we are created in His own image.

God is the truth.

He is faithful.

He is everything to me.
