When you’re generous in sharing your gifts without expecting anything in return, you leave God to recompense you with His abundance - Daily Bible Reflections November 16, 2016


TRUSTED ONE
 
“Well done, good servant! You have been faithful in this very small matter; take charge of ten cities.” – Luke 19:17
 
       As the only representative of the Philippines in the Asian federation of extreme sports, I was tasked to organize a technical committee to choose team members for an upcoming championship. I invited some of my friends who were pillars of the sport, but only a few were willing to give their services without monetary compensation.
       That’s why Mike stood out. I told him we wouldn’t get anything from this event aside from the prestige of bringing the team to represent our country. He said he was willing to help without pay. What he said stuck in my mind because I like people who work with passion and not for money.
       So when I was asked to give a recommendation for an international official for the biggest Asian Extreme Sports event in Thailand, I gave Mike’s name. I was confident that he could do the job since I had found him faithful in small matters.
       Mike, the team and I flew to Phuket and represented our country in the tournament. He was even given a five-figure honorarium for his services as an international official and is still being tapped to officiate in local and foreign events. Monty Mendigoria (montymendigoria@yahoo.com)

Lord, let Your goodness flow through me. Make me a channel of blessings for others. Amen.

Are you growing impatient because you haven’t gotten that big breakthrough you’re praying for? Review your small breakthroughs. They might already be pieces of that big one - Daily Bible Reflections November 2, 2016


All Souls Day
 
GRACE FOR THE
MOMENT
 
Only goodness and kindness will follow me all the days of my life. – Psalm 23:6
 
       Have you ever had a gigantic problem you thought only an equally huge solution could overcome it?
       Before she died, Mama was confined in the Intensive Care Unit — comatose due to a stroke.  On the third day, her hospital bill was a staggering P117,000. I prayed for resources to survive this crisis.
       Around midnight, she needed a procedure to drain the fluids in her brain. But first, we had to pay P15,000 for the fluid container. Papa and I didn’t have that amount with us and I couldn’t get more at that ungodly hour. Then I remembered the P4,000 my aunt and a community brother had given earlier. With that and the cash in our wallets, we raised P8,000. The doctor was kind enough to allow payment of the balance the next day. These droplets of mercy answered our need for the moment.
       That grace made me realize we don’t always have to receive the answer to our prayers in one downpour because God’s goodness flows each day. Sometimes, the solution comes in trickles, but in the end, the drops gathered in our blessings bucket are enough to drown our big problems. Lella M. Santiago (lellams88@gmail.com)

Are you resisting God’s call for your life? Surrender and find joy and fulfillment - Daily Bible Reflections October 28, 2016


Feast of Sts. Simon and Jude,
Apostles
 
I SURRENDER
 
Jesus went up to the mountain to pray. – Luke 6:12
 
       I believe in the power of prayer. It is through my prayer time that I make a conscious effort to know the will of God for me.
       Months ago, I made a life-changing decision. I left my career and family to heed the call of God. It wasn’t easy but I know I made the right choice because I am happy and fulfilled.
          As I write this, I am in my room in the seminary. I may be a little late because I’m already 25. But God’s call is always timely.
         My life as a seminarian is crazy, challenging and joyful. I thank God for giving me more time to reflect, discern and pray for His will in my life.
         I surrender my life to God and leave everything up to Him. As I seek that His will be done in me, I look forward to becoming
the Lord’s priest by 2021. Kein Chito (kein.chito@gmail.com)
 
Reflection:Are you resisting God’s call for your life? Surrender and find joy and fulfillment.
 
Holy Spirit, help me to discern God’s will for my life and to surrender to Him joyfully.
 
Sts. Simon and Jude, Apostles, pray for us.

Do you find yourself in the middle of a war right now? How do you prepare your spiritual muscles for the battle ahead? - Daily Bible Reflections October 27, 2016


 
NEW MEANING OF
STRENGTH
 
For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness... – Ephesians 6:12
 
       “Ahooo! Ahooo!” This was the chant of the mighty Spartan soldiers from my favorite movie, 300. It’s also the battle cry of the Radicals, a group of young men from the Light of Jesus Family who are being groomed to be mighty servants of God.
       I used to think that strength is measured by how big and strong your muscles are. But thanks to the Radical Training Program, I found the true meaning of strength. To give until it hurts. To be patient with the other driver who cut you off. To understand your spouse when she’s being unreasonable. To be able to provide for your family and be a good example to your kids. To serve God and His people through loving sacrifice. And to strive to be more loving than to fight for what’s right.      
       Like the mighty 300, we face a deadly war every day. A war between succumbing to sin or having the strength to live the Gospel. Lucky for us, we have the best King any army could ever have — Jesus! With Him leading the way, losing is not an option. Monching Bueno (ramon_bueno@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection:Do you find yourself in the middle of a war right now?  How do you prepare your spiritual muscles for the battle ahead?
 
Lord Jesus, give me the strength today to live and love like You. Amen.
 
Blessed Bartholomew of Vicenza, pray for us.
