All I Need Is Faith

Friday, September 23, 2011

It is easy to recite 'I believe in God, the Father Almighty...'. Yet when confronted with 'dark night' especially if the night is so long, can we still say I believe?

Many people doesn't really grasp the real meaning of such claim as "I believe". They do claim they have faith in the supreme being when it is all sunshine and they live comfortably.

I have read the story of Job a lot of times. Yes that man who have lost everything: properties, children, health, and whatever else he hold important except one thing, his faith.

And there were some people who tried very hard, really hard to convince him of the futility of his faith. But he held on...

Whatever is in the mind of Job all this time that he had been in the 'dark night'?
Was there a moment when he doubted? The bible does not say.

And then there is the story of Joseph the dreamer. He was thrown in a pit, sold as a commodity to the Egyptians, the Pharoah's wife tried to seduce him and when he refused, he thrown into prison like a criminal. Oh, what was he thinking all the time he suffered injustice? Did he not, even for a moment, doubted the existence of a loving God?

Never ba siyang nagtanong nang 'Lord bakit ako pa?

Job and Joseph, as the bible tells us, that after so much suffering, God, at last, in his bountiful mercy, rewarded them with more wealth and power!

Very dramatic indeed.

There is only one lesson here I guest. God do really want faith from us. To believe in Him even if there is no more reason to believe.

Peace to all...


Father Amado Picardal Walks 2,060-km

Sunday, May 29, 2011

The Inquirer reported today an interesting story of a 57-year old Redemptorist priest
who was able to complete walking from Davao City to Aparri in Cagayan Province. Wow, that's a two-thousand sixty kilometers long. (Kaya ko kaya ito?)

Anyway, according to the report, the priest did it for the environment and to stop extra-judicial killing. And also against the controversial RH Bill. (At least, hindi para mai-dyario tulad ng ginagawa ng iba.)

What makes the report more interesting is that the priest had been diagnosed with a heart disease. And inspite of "heavy downpour and biting cold" and experiences of dehydration and diarrhea, he completed his journey in 57 days from April 1 to May 27.

Mabuhay ka Father. Sana makinig ang Malacanang at taumbayan sa iyong mensahe!

Hello everyone, I'm back!!!!

Miss all of you here. I really miss the "scenes and sins" at blogosphere.

Well, I will start again to blog pag walang magawa. That has been my, say, achilles heel, iyon bang start and stop, then start again. Parang sa telenovela:
magkita, magligawan, magsyota tapos maghiwalay and then magsyota uli.

Sana nga makapagsulat ako ng isang telenobela kahit dito lang sa glampinoy. Kanit walang magbasa, maisulat ko lang.

Iyon ay kung makapag-isip ako, ay este kung may oras akong mag-isip. Sana mayroon.

And this time I hope I will really concentrate.
