Here comes again another day, and a baby was about to be born. Our father have gave us another gift to be treasured, take care of, and most especially, to be loved. That’s what my parents felt when I was about to come into their lives. I was born naked, and that simply states that, “Everything comes from God”. All that we have right now, they are all gifts from above. See how spoiled we are but we still keep on disobeying him. And because of love that he has for us, he never fails to understand, accept, forgive, and continue to make his promises for us. He’s really great, a great God that with just a sincere “sorry”, can cleanse us.
There’s nothing to be shy of and so there’s a lot to share with. Gifts are to be discovered, shared, and to be proud of. For as long as you’re doing it for the Lord and with all your heart, you will gain success. So he deserves a hug, a thank you because we are wrapped in a truth that we are loved without measure. We all have a field where in we are all professionals but before that, we have to learn first for us to have a knowledge that may help us know where our desire and heart is. After discovering, in return; why don’t you perform for him?
Everything starts in a single step and that’s how our skills be polished. As his soldier, there’s no such thing as “pwede na yan”, once you’ve stepped into the stage, you’re performing not for the audiences in front but for the people who’s seated at the last row. Many tears will fall, and many things will be sacrificed but if what you’re doing gives you satisfaction for there’s where your heart is, Do not give up and settle for the best for God gave you the best.
In music that sets as a background in our life, the high note, same also with its opposite creates a great value in our life. But always remember that there’s a beat to be followed that symbolizes God. If you follow him, the ups and downs will fall into places and at the end, will create a melody pleasing to the ears. Control, follow the beat, and take the notes as challenges because if you commit even a single mistake, the melody will be out of the tune but because of mistakes, you’ll learn the lesson and continue until you’ve got it correctly. Be open-minded to learn new things. Go out of the box for you to have a better future. But in everything you do, let God be the driver and have faith in him as a passenger that he will not do any harm. Be God-centered as well. Problems are normal so if you have a big problem, remember that you have a big God. Therefore, your problem becomes small. Let me give you a question before I end up, if we cannot see the higher purpose in life, what are lives for?
