Someone Parked on my Parking…..tsk tsk!

As the title implies, there is indeed someone parked on my parking. There is something in my parking really that people, neighbors, visitors in the building, etc. just love to park with. I can’t figure what it is but really keep me always wondering. Most of the times I just ignored it and I try to find another parking.

BUT tonight was different! I parked behind the cars that was parked on my parking(since Elias is long so it occupied two and a half parking space therefore, will give them a “NO getting out at all” scenario and another). I am sure that all of us will be inconvenienced tomorrow morning. The other car will also have difficulty getting out because it will kiss intimately the side of it which if he is a good driver, he’ll find a way to somehow manage to get out.

Why did I park behind these cars?
1. If the person who parked on my parking lives on the same building then he/she will get one or two (you know!?!?) words of wisdom from me. And if he/she lives in the building that means he is sharing the flat to somebody else who happen to have his parking already. This guy is new in the building.
2. It is my parking eversince I moved in this building. MINE!!
3. There is no available parking anymore because all houses in this village seems to be having more than 2 cars. If there is available parking, it is far from the building, I have to walk which i don’t like to do. Why? These people go to work tomorrow and they’ll leave the parking unoccupied and shaded. Not right!
4. I don’t want to wake up early just to move Elias to his proper parking.
5. If this person is just a neighbor then it’ll be his/her lesson not to park on somebody else parking anymore.

It’s 2:30am, can’t sleep because of this and I am pretty sure that tomorrow I will be awaken by a call or a doorbell. Let’s see what will happen!

But hopefully, hopefully, hopefully…..I will not lose it!

Alright…..see print ads for details! ^____^

Kinda True

Worry implies that we don’t quite trust that GOD is big enough, powerful enough, or loving enough to take care of what’s happening in our lives.

Stress says that the things we are involved in are important enough to merit our impatience, our lack of grace toward others, or our tight grip of control.

Basically, these two behaviors communicate that it’s okay to sin and not trust GOD because the stuff in our life is somehow exceptional.  Both worry and stress reek of arrogance.  They declare our tendency to forget that we’ve been forgiven, that our lives here are brief, that we are headed to a place where we won’t be lonely, afraid, or hurt ever again, and that in the context of GOD’s strength, our problems are small, indeed.

………………………………………..

Now consider the movie of life….

GOD creates the world.  (Were you alive then?  Was GOD talking to you when He proclaimed “It is good” about all He had just made?)

Then people rebel against GOD (Who, if you haven’t realized it yet, is the main character in this movie), and GOD floods the earth to rid it of mess people made of it.

Several generations later, GOD singles our a ninety-nine year old man called Abram and makes him the father of a nation (did you have anything to do with this?).

Later, along came Joseph and Moses and many other ordinary and inadequate people that the movie is also not about.  GOD is the one who picks them and directs them and works miracles through them.

In the next scene, GOD sends judges and prophets to His nation because the people can’t seem to give Him the one thing He asked of them (Obedience).

And then, the climax: The Son of GOD is born among the people whom GOD still somehow loves.  While in this world, the Son teaches His followers what true love looks like.  Then the Son of GOD dies and is resurrected and goes back up to be with GOD.

And even though the movie isn’t quite finished yet, we know what the last scene holds.  It’s the throne room of GOD scene.  Here every being worships GOD Who sits on the throne, for He alone is worthy to be praised.

From start to finish, this movie is obviously about GOD.  He is the main character.  How is it possible that we llive as though it is about us?  Our scenes in the movie, our brief lives, fall somewhere between the time Jesus ascends into heaven (Acts) and when we will all worship GOD on His throne in heaven (Revelation). – Excerpt taken from Francis Chan’s Crazy love book

*Have been reading this and realized that it is true.  GOD is the main character.  He is the Author, the Character and the Director in the role we are portraying here on earth and yet in the movie of life, we tend to magnify or highlights the brief roles that we have.  We are the one to be pitied at. We want to always be the center of attraction that we think all should be gaga about us when something is not going well in our lives which in the first were the product of our own work.  We always want to look “kawawa” (pitiful) so everyone will be running towards us to extend help and comfort and love. We think that the whole universe revolves around us.  Well, the truth is, this thinking or attitude is a facet, self-righteous and hopeless.  We need to act according to GOD’s.  Magnify GOD in our lives – ALL that HE is!

YHWH – He was, and is, and is to come!!! ♥♥

Reminiscing 101

So I was browsing my old journals year 2001-2004.  Then, blogging is not that popular so we write our thoughts and experiences in a notebook and call it “My Journal”.  My Journal is mostly narration of how GOD works in my life, the lesson I’ve learned and still learning as I walk side by side with HIM, lessons I’ve learned/learning in life and how i’ve grown (mature) so far.

So I thought of showcasing them here and hopefully share one or two lessons to others……hopefully too one can relate and be blessed with it as I am.

Here it goes……

1 Timothy 4:14, “Do no neglect your gift, which was given you through a prophetic message when the body of elders laid their hands on you.”

This verse reminded me of an elder of the Church who laid hands on me on the altar call dated December 2003.  I personally don’t know him but he was task or chosen by GOD to me to tell me HIS message. When the Pastor asked people for altar call, we don’t have a single idea who will reach out to us, to pray for us.  This elder came in front of me and whispered, “Go on with your faith, continue serving through HIS Ministry, 2004 is for you.  Always seek HIS Kingdom and hold on to HIS promises that He’ll never leave you nor forsake you.”

***

That was 2004 before I received a confirmation that my visit visa was already granted and I am due to fly by November 2004.  Actually, there are 2 choices that was presented to me then; job interview for a managerial position for one of a thriving franchise and to work overseas.  I chose working abroad.  At first, I was thinking of a greener pasture to help my family and myself….to earn.  But little did I know that working abroad will make and break you.  The impression I have in mind for working abroad totally changed.  It is not easy but I have this day journal that “GOD will never leave me nor forsake me”.  HE will always there.  I look for a Church and after 6 months attended a service that was almost similar to our Church in Palawan.  Met friends too who happened to hop around Churches and they convinced me to attend to Word of Life International (WOLI) where I stayed for almost 12 years now.  Still serving GOD in a way I know how.  Still seeking HIM.  Still keeping HIS promise that He’ll never leave me nor forsake me.

Of all this, glory to GOD who are faithful and never-changing. ❤ ❤ ❤
