God’s Rejection Is Sometimes Protection

There may be countless plans we had in mind that were never realized. There may be expectations that never happened, wishes that were not granted or prayers that seem to be unheard for we didn’t understand the way answers were given. God has loved us so much that He only wants what’s best for us.  Not all the time that each of our specified request is provided just like how we think it should be. It is important to accept and comprehend God’s own way as well as His timing. Sometimes, our requests are rejected because He knows it won’t be good for us as it may bring threat to our life or faith.

No matter how confused and doubtful we are of what’s happening around, it is best to trust God’s will and plan. If the mind cannot fathom, let the heart do the understanding and we will be at peace, waiting and trusting for what’s about to be given in due time.

I Love You : Say and Prove it...

“I Love You” is the most common statement that even my 3-year old kid knows how to pronounce well. These are the last words I always hear from my husband before my eyes shut and my mind forgets everything every bedtime. Couples, lovers, family members and friends do exchange this overly used phrase most of the time and it truly strengthens the bond.

These words are so romantic when expressed through writing and even sweeter when spoken. But, do we really mean when we say it to someone? 

Saying is not enough yet proving the truthfulness of our words through actions makes our expression more meaningful and genuine.

Are we ready this 2013?

Another year unfolds, what's in store for us this 2013? 
Are we ready for new challenges and experiences? 

In 2012...
Whatever mistakes we've done, have we regretted?
Whatever pains & failures we've had, have we moved on?
Whatever things we've gone through, have we learned?  
Whatever good things we received, have we been thankful?

We always prepare a list of resolutions for each coming year, have we completed even half of it? 

As a new year begins, have we prayed for guidance? 
Have we asked God to help us become better & renewed?

We cannot say we're READY unless we have entrusted everything to the Lord, have we?
