God Whispers - July 31, 2012

I created you to be a dreamer so allow yourself to dream. Your dream could be very big or very small. It doesn’t matter. But you need to keep on dreaming, or you start dying. Look to the interests of others, but don’t forget to look at your own interests too.
 
Your Maker,
God
 
P.S. I planted dreams in your soul so keep dreaming.

I smile
 
“Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears ought to hear.” – Matthew 13:43
 
I was very playful and outgoing as a kid. Being so, I devised a way to pick which kids to befriend when I was in elementary school. I would observe those who talked and laughed a lot and readily conclude that they were the best friends for me because they “shone.”
But as I grew up, I learned that not “all that glitters is gold.” Those who smile at and laugh with me aren’t necessarily the ones who turn out to be my best friends. Presently, I reckon most of my best friends are those whom I met when things were going downhill in my life. They were there to cry with me. The brilliance of their character shone ever brighter during those trying times in life.
At 36, I have gained the wisdom that God sees me shine even during my darkest hours. I’m not worried about people judging me just because I don’t always “shine” when I’m in a crowd. I believe that God sees through my heart, and with that thought, I smile. Eugene Cailao (eugenecailao@gmail.com)

REFLECTION:
“A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are.” (Unknown)
 
Lord, You are the Friend who sticks closer than a brother. Let me be that kind of friend to others, too.
 
St. Ignatius of Loyola, priest, pray for us.

God Whispers - July 30, 2012

If you don’t receive love, you won’t be able to give love. You can’t give what you don’t have. You can’t love others if you don’t love yourself. You can’t even love Me if you don’t love yourself.
 
Lover of Your Soul,
God
 
P.S. Don’t let the needs of other people overwhelm you. Give time to listen to your own needs.

God Whispers - July 29, 2012

Don’t let the “what if’s” of life become a hindrance to your progress. Don’t even waste your time imagining how things could have turned out if you did this or that. You can’t do anything about your past, but I give you the gift of the present to do what you can do today.
 
Create,
 
 
P.S. Nilo, forget what lies behind and strain forward to what lies ahead (Philippians 3:13).

God Whispers - July 28, 2012

If you find your journey through life to be wearisome, check your baggage. Maybe you’re carrying weight you weren’t meant to carry. Bitterness, a critical spirit, a wrong understanding of My will for you can leave you tired and burnt out.
 
Empowering You,
God
 
P.S. Remember, My yoke is easy and My burden light. So if something’s too heavy for you, evaluate if you’re yoked unto Me.

How To Encourage Yourself


How To Encourage Yourself 
 
Do you want to be successful?
 
You’ve got to learn how to encourage yourself.
 
Because there are days when you won’t receive any encouragement from anyone else, you’ve got to do it yourself.
 
There’s this one passage in the Bible that I love so much. It says, David encouraged himself in the Lord. (1 Samuel 30:6)
 
Let me tell you the Bible story behind this verse.
David and his men—600 of them—went away to work and left their wives and children in their camp called Ziklag. Three days later, tragedy struck. The Amalekites, sworn enemies of Israel, attacked and burned the entire village to the ground—and taking all the women and children with them as slaves.
When David and his men arrived, the Bible says his men “wept until they could weep no more.” Can you imagine 600 men crying at the loss of their wives and children? Can you imagine 600 men weeping over a pile of burning rubble that was once their home?
You think that was bad? It got worse. The Bible says that these men—once upon a time fiercely loyal to David—wanted now to stone David to death. 
I’ve noticed that when things go wrong, human beings want to look for someone to blame. We always want to look for a scapegoat to vent our rage.
Imagine you were David.
You just lost your family. Your kids were taken away from you. Your home is now but ashes under your feet. You now own nothing except the clothes that you’re wearing. And the friends that you thought were friends now want to kill you. 
This is what you call an Impossible situation. 
In other words, it’s a Ziklag…

Daily Bible Reflections - July 30, 2012


ENJOY THE PROCESS
 
“It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it grows up, it is the biggest of all plants.” – Matthew 13:32
 
My wife and I got involved in the distribution of agriculture inputs to farmers and farm owners. Because of this, we witnessed first-hand the process of planting and harvesting of rice and corn, studied how to increase yields of mango trees and how to extend the productive life of high vegetable plantations. It was a learning experience!
Given the exposure we’ve had on these various crops, I came to one simple yet important life lesson. Harvest doesn’t come in the same season as sowing. Nature has a process of growth. For rice alone, it takes more than 100 days from seed preparation, soil preparation, seed bed planting, seed transplanting, fertilization, harvest and rice milling. This doesn’t even include the difficulties the farmer has to face when drought or typhoons set in.
Today, the Lord points out that all big things that are of value started small. They all had to go through a maturing process. This takes time, work, patience and, most of all, God’s grace.
So the next time you feel “small” in your faith, know that God’s process is working on you. Instead of fighting it, enjoy the process! Ariel Driz (adriz77@yahoo.com)
30
REFLECTION:
All worthwhile things take time. Am I enjoying God’s process in my life?
 
Lord Jesus, thank You for reminding me that You are not done with me yet… that everything is a process of growth. Grant me the grace to be patient so that I may be of great use for Your kingdom. Amen.
 
St. Peter Chrysologus, bishop and doctor of the Church, pray for us.

keep the peace
 
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called. – Ephesians 4: 2-4
 
Sixty leaders of various committees from different provinces gathered the day before the celebration of the feast of the Blessed Mother. Final instructions were being given as well as food and gasoline allowances. That’s when the trouble began. What started as a peaceful meeting suddenly became an unruly crowd. People began to murmur and complain why others were getting more than them.
The overall coordinator stood up on stage, waiting for the noise to die down. When the room was still, he spoke softly, quoting the verse above.
It took a few seconds before the miracle happened. Then people stood up, clapped their hands vigorously and started hugging one another as they cried and laughed at the same time.
Words from an ordinary man would not have pacified their spirits but the words of God brought them back together, instilled peace and united them in their call to serve. Chelle Crisanto (ellehcmaria@yahoo.com)
29
REFLECTION:
“Church isn’t a building. Church is what you do. Church is who you are. Church is the human outworking of the person of Jesus Christ. Let’s not go to Church, let’s be the Church.” (Bridget Willard)
 
Lord, let me be Your instrument of unity.
 
St. Martha, pray for us.

THE RISE AND FALL OF EVIL
 
“Tie them in bundles for burning, but gather the wheat into my barn.” – Matthew 13:30
 
Watching the news on TV makes me think that the evil trends of the world seem to be unstoppable. Dishonest officials always sit in high positions in government, promoting graft and corruption. Laws against Christian morality and ethics are being proposed in congress. Robbery and crime are on the rise. Wars never come to an end. People renounce their faith.
It appears as if the devil is already winning.
I asked the Lord why He allows these miserable things to happen.
As I reflected on Scripture, the Lord reminded me that everything in this world is temporary. The prevailing scheme of the evil one will also fail and end. Then, the glory of the Lord will rise and rule over this darkness. Everlasting happiness will be granted to those who stand firm and put their trust in Him. So it is best that we remain strong in our faith and persevere in drawing near to our Lord through prayers and good deeds.
God is at His strongest when we are at our weakest. Dho Rimando (dougsterrimando@yahoo.com.ph)
28
REFLECTION:
“All God’s giants have been weak men who did great things for God because they reckoned on His power and presence being with them.” (James Hudson Taylor)
 
Lord, You’ve empowered us to defeat the evil one. Grant me the courage I need to use that power.
 
St. Leopold Mandic, pray for us.

God Whispers - July 27, 2012

“Selfishness” and “self love” look alike but they’re very different from each other. It’s like comparing a nuclear bomb to a nuclear plant. The nuclear bomb kills thousands but the nuclear plant helps thousands. The difference is simple. “Selfishness” is meeting your own needs and your own needs only. “Self love” is meeting your needs so that you can meet the needs of others even more.
 
Looking out for you,
God
 
P.S. Love your neighbor as you love yourself.

BEARING FRUIT
 
“And the seeds sown in the good soil stand for those who hear the message and understand it: they bear fruit, some as much as one hundred, others, sixty, and others thirty.” – Matthew 13:23
 
When my parents first moved to our subdivision, they planted seeds of mango, jackfruit, coconut and chico in the land surrounding our family’s home. After many years, these seeds have blossomed into trees whose fruits are enjoyed not only by our family but our neighbors as well.
Once, we harvested a total of 64 coconuts from just one tree. It’s amazing how one seed that fell on good soil produced a tree that bears so much fruit.
It reminds me how a word of encouragement or simply sharing God’s faithfulness in our lives can plant hope in someone’s heart. Imagine how the seed of kindness and the truth of the Gospel can change someone’s life. Imagine also how a person touched by God’s transforming love can influence the people around them until the whole country is transformed. It seems so massive, but the change begins from one seed of goodness planted today.
It is so important that we do our duty as Christians in planting the seeds of God’s truth and goodness in our lives. That way, the Holy Spirit can continue His renewing work in the world.Marjorie Ann Duterte (marjorie.travels@gmail.com)
27
REFLECTION:
If no seed is sown, how will the Spirit bear fruit? Who can I share God’s Word with today?
 
Dear Lord, may we be like the good soil that receives Your Word in trust and obedience, so that Your Spirit may bear fruits of love, peace and joy in us. Amen.
 
Blessed Antonio Lucci,pray for us.

what’s your legacy?
 
But we will praise these godly men, whose righteous deeds have never been forgotten. Their reputations will be passed on to their descendants, and this will be their inheritance. – Sirach 44:10-11
 
A few years ago, I chanced upon a conversation with a local businessman who had become a well-known success in the country. He had recently been engaged in a bidding war with his competitors for a huge project. The manager in charge of awarding the project had approached him to ask for a small bribe. In exchange, the manager would turn the deal to his favor. However, this businessman declined the proposal and his competitor won the contract.
When I asked him why he had refused to pay off the manager given that the fee was a small sum compared to the value of the project, he answered me with a smile. “I am trying to build my business as honestly as I can. True, it will take me twice as long and 10 times the effort to become as rich as my competitor, but I’m in no hurry and I want to be remembered as a man who earned success by working hard, not by taking unethical shortcuts. There is something more than wealth that I want to pass down  to my children and that is a legacy of an honorable name, integrity and good values.” Eleanore Lee (elyo.lee@gmail.com)
 
REFLECTION:
What kind of person would you want others to remember you by?
                                                                                                                                                                                            
Lord, may I do justice as Your child, born of a Father who continues to  encourage love, selflessness and righteousness in this world.
 
Sts. Joachim and Anne, parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary, pray for us.

Feast of St. James, Apostle
 
MY SELF-WORTH
 
But we hold this treasure in earthen vessels, that the surpassing power may be of God and not from us. – 2 Corinthians 4:7
 
Promotion at work, high assessment, excellent audience feedback. These were things I loved. But every time I failed or when the evaluation was just satisfactory, it’s as if my value went on sale, 50 percent off. Years later, I realized that my achievements defined my self-worth. I’ve been part of Charismatic communities for the longest time but it turns out I was just superficially declaring that my worth was rooted in God. I prayed for healing.
In 2007, I felt God leading me to resign. But how could I when I faced a bright future as a TV reporter and was already next in line as part of the new batch of anchors?
It took two years before I finally surrendered, but it liberated me from my neediness. I felt my worth even if I could no longer be promoted or get to host my own TV show. I am like an earthen vessel as the Bible verse suggests, a clay jar that can easily break, but I hold inside me the surpassing power that is God’s, not mine. There I found my self-worth.
I served full-time for a Charismatic community. But guess what? God blessed me with hosting jobs for TV shows that landed on my lap. Truly He provides and knows the desires of my heart. Carlo Lorenzo (carloflorenzo@yahoo.com)
 
REFLECTION:
The joy is mine. The glory is His. When people praise me, do I embrace the glory or do I recognize God inside me to give back to Him the glory?
 
Lord God, help me discover my neediness and heal me so my heart may consistently recognize my worth rooted in You which is not defined by achievements or what other people think and expect of me.
 
St. James, Apostle, pray for us.
 

God Whispers - July 25, 2012

When the darkness overtakes your path and you can’t see where you’re headed, trust in Me. My eyes shine brighter than 10,000 suns and I’m so many steps ahead of you.
 
Watching over you,
God
 
P.S. Don’t let uncertainty or fear paralyze you. Just keep walking and I will guide your way.

WORSHIP YOU
 
“Show us wonderful signs.” – Micah 7:15
It was an evening of grace. My husband Raul and I were leading the corporate worship of Bukas Loob Sa Diyos Covenant Community at the Santuario de San Antonio in Forbes Park. Soaked in melodious songs and high praises, the whole church was radiating with joy, love and peace from the hearts of the worshipers. For more than two hours, we set aside mundane concerns of life. It was a glimpse of heaven on earth for me as ordinary men and women were transformed into a multitude of angels, praising God unabashedly.
Whenever the Holy Spirit takes over, God moves and things happen. The moment of encounter and communion with the Lord
is always the high point of the evening and it is difficult to describe it in words. It has to be experienced to be fully appreciated.
No two corporate worships are ever alike. Whenever I come out of the church filled with inexplicable joy, it comes as a wonderful sign from the Lord. I can’t wait till our next turn to lead the corporate worship once again. Praise be to God!  Mari Sison-Garcia (mari_sison_garcia @yahoo.com)
 
REFLECTION:
It is God’s will for us to give Him praise “so that we might exist for the praise of his glory” (Ephesians 1:12).
 
Lord, Your wonderful signs give me an affirmation to obey Your will each day.
 
St. Sharbel Makhlouf, pray for us.

God Whispers - July 24, 2012

Your life may be messy right now but put up with the temporary disarray. Because your life is under construction. It can be messy, dirty, and filthy right now. Because I’m in the process of renovating your life. I am redesigning your character, repairing your weaknesses, retrofitting your gifts, restoring your soul and rebuilding something beautiful within you.
 
Molding You,
God
 
P.S. You’re so preoccupied with your destination, but I am preoccupied with your development.

Failure is Temporary, but Victory is Permanent—because God cannot fail…

Your Failures Are Temporary
Failure can be devastating.
Just recall your most painful failures.
       Have you failed in school?  Have you experienced waiting outside the registrar’s office, your body sweating, your knees shaking, your stomach churning, praying that your grade isn’t a 72% but 75%--or you get kicked out of school? (Been there, done that.)
Have you failed in your job? In your business?  Did you lose money in your investments?  Have you plunked in hard-earned money in a business—only to have the money disappear? (I’ve experienced this ten times in my life…)
Have you failed in your diets?  My friend tried the Atkins Diet and he failed. He tried the Mediterranean Diet and he failed. He tried the After Six Diet, and he failed. He tried the South Beach Diet, the North Beach, The East Beach, and the West Beach—and failed all of them too. Finally, he’s doing the Seafood Diet and its been working. What he sees, he eats. 
Have you failed in your exercise programs? Have you decided to run each morning—and lasted only for two weeks? Have you bought a treadmill and now use it as a clothes hanger?  Skywalker? Abroller? Abflex? ThighMaster? StepMaster?  Used them for three weeks max, and are now symbols of your undisciplined life?
Have you failed in your love-life? Have you ever experienced a broken heart? Have you loved someone with all your heart, but that someone didn’t love you back but just wanted you to be a friend? (“But I don’t want to be just your friend! Grrrr!”) Or have YOU broken someone’s heart?   Is your theme song, To all the girls I've loved before, Who travelled in and out my door…
       Have you failed in your family life? As husband, wife, father, mother, sibling, child, grandchild? 
       Have you failed God?
       Have you failed yourself?
       People ask me how could I have written 27 books, so far. The answer is easy. It’s not because I have more brilliance. It’s because I have more blunders. Because every time I fail, I try to learn from my failures—and share this wisdom in my books.
Here’s God’s big message for you today. Failure is Temporary, but Victory is Permanent—because God cannot fail…

God Whispers - July 23, 2012

The drudgery of your everyday life is where you can best serve Me. Don’t look for extraordinary events or spectacular times of martyrdom to show your love for Me. Love me in the toils and chores of daily living.
 
Love you,
God
 
P.S. I washed My disciples’ feet. What ordinary thing can you do today to show your love to others and to Me?

God Whispers - July 22, 2012

It will blow your mind to know what I can accomplish through one person who surrenders his life and obeys My voice. You can’t even begin to imagine the wonders I can do through you! All I ask is that you follow My lead.
 
Looking Out for You,
God
 
P.S. Read the Bible and see what miracles I worked through My servants who heeded My voice.

God Whispers - July 21, 2012

When you fail, don’t say, “I’m a failure.” Say, “I’ve failed — but I can do better. I’m a winner who has failed but will rise up stronger, better and wiser!”  
    
Dedicated to your success,
God
 
P.S. The just man falls seven times a day but rises again (Proverbs 24:16). When you fail, stand up!

DEATH SENTENCE

“Master,” they said, “we should like to see a sign from you.” – Matthew 12:38
“I’m sorry. I cannot help you,” my husband said. His patient burst into bitter tears.
A year ago, the patient consulted him about her stage one breast cancer. My husband recommended surgery and chemotherapy, explaining that a cure is attainable. She didn’t come back.
Now she was recounting how she tried alternative medicine because of her fear of chemotherapy. The cancer had advanced to stage four, the final stage. He couldn’t save her even if she begged.
I think my husband’s frustration was similar to Jesus’ when the Pharisees asked for a sign. My husband, just like Jesus, was trying to bring hope and deliver people from certain death, but he was received with cynicism, fear and resentment instead.
Unknown to us, we are usually in the position of the patient and the Pharisees. We resist what we know should be done and insist on looking for proof because we want an easier path.
Make the right decisions now. Don’t fear the hardships to come. God will give you enough grace to see you through. Postponement may be a reprieve, but in the end, it’s as good as a death sentence. Cecil Lim (cez_lim@yahoo.com)
REFLECTION:
“If you keep thinking about what you want to do or what you hope will happen, you don’t do it, and it won’t happen.” (Desiderius Erasmus)
Lord, open our eyes and ears and grant us the courage to respond to the signs all around us.
St. Bridget, religious, pray for us.

what kind of shepherd?
 
“His heart was moved with pity for them, for they were like sheep without a shepherd.” – Mark 6:34
 
As Christians, all of us are shepherds of some sort. But what kind of shepherd are you?
1. Tired – Just like low-batt devices that need to recharge, everyone needs rest. Jesus invited His disciples, “Come away by yourselves,” so they could be refreshed in His presence.
2. Inspired – Some shepherds are like mothers who put personal needs aside to serve others because they know they do this out of love for people they care about.
3. Reluctant – Shepherds who live in the past have no vision of Jesus’ future for their lives. The present will always be a burden to them.
4. Indifferent – In the beginning, this shepherd was inspired but she let the stress get to her and she started to rely on herself. She had forgotten to go back to God.
As we live up to our roles in life as a parent, child, boss, employee or student, we all have God-given responsibilities that make us shepherds in our own right. May we discover that our secular tasks are but a shadow of our spiritual vocation as Christians. Rod Velez (rod.velez@gmail.com)
 
REFLECTION:
What kind of shepherd are you?
 
May I always learn from You because You are the Good Shepherd. My ears were fashioned to hear Your voice, my eyes were made to see Your face and my soul was created to fit perfectly in Your loving arms. Direct my mind, my heart and my will always to You, my Lord.
 
St. Mary Magdalene, pray for us.

APATHY
 
“I am planning disaster against this people, from which you cannot save yourselves. You will no longer walk proudly, for it will be a time of calamity.” – Micah 2:3
 
My colleague Marla and I were having coffee one afternoon when our branch manager, Tito Jojo, joined us. He shared with us about his involvement in the mission of uplifting the lives of the poor and empowering them. His commitment and passion were evident as he related his role in helping the mission grow and reach out to more poor families.
But what struck me most was when he said, “The teaching of the Catholic faith is the best there is in all of Christendom. But it is also our best-kept secret. Why? Because there are more poor people among us, in spite of our country being a predominantly Christian nation. We don’t do enough for the poor. Sure, poverty is caused by people who have but don’t give to the poor. But more than this, poverty is caused by our apathy.”
The second chapter of Micah clearly expresses God’s anger and the wrath He brings upon those who “do the evil they planned” against the helpless and the weak. This got me thinking. I asked myself: compared to cruelty, greed and injustice, isn’t apathy — my apathy — to the plight of the poor the worst form of oppression there is? Dina PecaƱa (dpecana@yahoo.com)
 
REFLECTION:
What have you done for the poor? What else do you want to do for the poor?
 
Lord, bless all those who have less than I do and stir within me a spirit of sharing. Let gratitude and giving be my banners and let all be Yours. May justice and mercy have places of honor within my being and may my hands work to relieve suffering wherever I find it. Amen. (Vera Salter)
 
St. Lawrence of Brindisi, priest and doctor of the Church, pray for us.

God Whispers - July 20, 2012

Are you a theatrical Christian? Do you practice your faith so that others may see and approve of your actions? Remember, I see what you do in secret. And I will reward you accordingly.
 
Your Loving Father,
God
 
P.S.  I want you to be true through and through. Only then will you enjoy real peace.

He’s Just Around The Corner
 
I have heard your prayer and seen your tears. I will heal you. – Isaiah 38:5
 
The sudden death of his wife devastated him, especially that he was left with a little girl who constantly looked for her mother. One night, while they were both trying to get some sleep, the little girl said, “Daddy, it’s so dark. I can’t see you, are you there?” The father replied, “Yes, baby, I’m here. Don’t worry. Daddy is right next to you and I’m not going anywhere. Now, try to get some sleep.”
There is no doubt that we live in a world of discord, one torn with disease and sickness, broken relationships, natural disasters, injustices and corrupt governments. But the trials and pressures of life, no matter how severe, are never an indication that God has forgotten us and doesn’t hear our cries.
No matter how dark our situation is, no matter how afflicted we may be, no matter how hopeless things appear, we must never lose hope. Our faith calls us to endure and to trust that our loving Father will never leave us and, that one day, He will bring us peace. Jane Gonzales-Rauch (mgr516@gmail.com)
20
REFLECTION:
When we are afflicted, regardless of the cause, we must see it as an opportunity to deepen our faith and trust even more in the Lord.
 
Dear Lord, heal my troubled heart and banish my fears. Lead me to a greater faith and trust in You. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
 
St. Apollinaris, pray for us.
 

It's Not Too Late To Change Your 2012

It’s Not Too Late To Change Your 2012
 
Can I tell you a crazy story?
Last Christmas, a mother and her little girl were shopping. And the crowd was extra thick. The mother sternly told her child, “Princess, no matter what happens, hold onto my skirt! I don’t want you to get lost.   Hold my skirt, you hear me?” The little girl said yes as she wrapped her little fingers tight onto her mother’s skirt.
          Two hours later, something happened: The girl got lost!
And the mother talked to the Security Guard. “Guard, have you seen a little girl holding a skirt?”
          Okay, that’s an old joke.
          But pretend you’re reading it for the first time.
I told you this story because there are people who look for the “skirt” of blessings. All they want are the blessings of God. That’s what they hold on to. That’s dangerous. Because one day, they’ll end up holding an empty skirt. 
Instead of looking for blessings, look for the Blesser. 
When you have the Blesser, the blessings will follow.
The most important decision you can make: Put God first.
 
Experience More…

Power and Powerful

Do something good with your power, don’t just be good at being powerful.
Leaders guide their people to do what is right and not what is wrong. “Everything rises and falls on leadership.” says John Maxwell and he is so right.

God Whispers - July 19, 2012

Don’t fight fire with fire. You cannot combat hatred and indifference with more of it. Only love conquers all.
 
Apprehending you with love,
God
 
P.S. Take it from Me. My love vanquished even death and sin.

God Whispers - July 18, 2012

You don’t get what you deserve. You get what you THINK you deserve. If in your mind you think you deserve failure, hardship, lack, struggle, misery —that’s what you will experience every day. Change your mind. Change your thinking! You deserve better. You don’t deserve a miserable life or a mediocre life. 
 
I love you,
God
 
P.S. I created you to live a magnificent life!

BURDEN LIFTER
 
“For my yoke is easy and my burden light.” – Matthew 11:30
 
Taking a break is always helpful. That’s why our family squeezes out-of-town trips in our busy schedule once in a while.
But taking a vacation is, in itself, tiring. For an obsessive-compulsive person like me, preparing and packing things for a trip is tedious work. Then during the vacation itself, we get exhausted from our activities. It doesn’t end there.
After the trip, with all the dirty clothes and paraphernalia, plus the souvenirs and pasalubongs, unpacking is even more taxing. But at the end of it all, it’s the bonding and the love that’s worth remembering.
In this life, we oftentimes get tired and burdened from our regular routine. From finding solutions to our various problems. From fighting sin. From finding all possible means to stay within the budget and pay our debts. From trying to repair broken relationships. Even from struggling to be good.
But at the end of the day, what matters is that we put our trust in the Lord and rest in His holy presence. His love that is new every morning shall make our burdens light. Sol Saura (sol_saura@yahoo.com)
 
REFLECTION:
Are you carrying a heavy load right now? Give ‘em all to Jesus!
 
Thank You, Lord, for always being there to see us through.
 
Servant of God Francis Garces and Companions, pray for us.
