Having heard a feedback about this blogsite last year, I was determined to write a piece of writing worth – sharing, worthy for everyone to expose their names that they are reading, worthy of hitting the star – button, worthy of praising- comments. But, having that in mind, I found myself always hitting the “backspace” key. Instead of writing, I found myself unwriting. Thinking and paralysed, I opened all my previous journals in the hope of getting the inspiration and break the sorcery I have spelled unto myself. But none of my misery-filled journal entries suffice my objective. I felt so drained. My browsing through all my handwritten entries was a futile attempt to get what I wanted, I thought.

Inspecting all my entries from 2009 to 2016, only alerted me of one common line that I kept writing through those years, “May I be able to please You, Lord.” or “Please help me to please You.”

That journaling is the reason why I have this blogsite and those journal entries have repeatedly declared that my heart desires to please the Lord. This reveals to whom, to how and to why I am writing and responding to this frequent waking up at every 2am… To write to please the Lord for He is my supreme audience.

For to please Him is to be inspired, to be ordinary and great and to impress all other eyes is to be filled with discontentment, to be proud and unheard.

Dear Lord, may the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing to You, my God and my Judge. Amen.

God bless!

When God said “Fear not for I am with you, Do not be dismayed for I am Your God, I am holding You with my victorious right hand” He is referring for us to be courageous, to be strong. Because there will be difficulties, we are living in a fallen world. However, we have a Helper and in that strength, we will find joy!

Our hurts, rejections and failures will only make sense if we learn from them.

The mercy of God will come through lessons, too. He counsels us with His gentle staff.

Otherwise, these will not serve us good and we will miss living life to the fullest if we don’t risk with possibilities of pain, rejections and failures. Generally, I call them heartbreak.

Today, I want to recall and identify lessons I gained from ex – managers, ex-group leaders, ex – household members, ex – interviewers, ex – parish priests and ex – strangers and maybe, ex – crushes, ex – service partners and ex – boyfriend (Yes, he is only one).

10. ๐Ÿ’– It was my last round of interview and I can feel so closed to signing the job offer. Then, my current boss called me and spent time at the phone. In the end, I came late. I did not get the job offer.

Lesson, learn to say “no” right away if the number one priority is compromised.

9. ๐Ÿ’– Set a daily priority. Huge priorities in life can be overwhelming so, set daily priorities.

8. ๐Ÿ’– Stick to your defined priorities. At all cost.

7. ๐Ÿ’– I have been hearing, “He is paasa. ” (He makes girls build false – hopes around him.)

Lesson: Don’t ignore. There is, somehow, a truth in it.

6. ๐Ÿ’– Sisters have in their DNA to be pursued. They have an innate craving for it. A lady might say, I’m from the newest generation where men and women can do the same thing. Sister, that’s not true. You might do the pursuing now, but sooner or later, doubt will be knocking at the door. You will DEMAND, for an affirmation.

Lesson: Sister, allow your DNA to speak, be pursued. Be someone worth the pursuit.

5. ๐Ÿ’– Cheaters have signs. Do not ignore the first time the sign appears.

4. ๐Ÿ’– It takes character to say “I am sorry.” to someone who says to you “I got hurt by your words.” For instances like these, no explanation is needed why the other person got hurt. The truth that the other person got hurt then, “sorry” is much needed from the offender.

3. ๐Ÿ’– If cheaters have signs all the more the MAN who is worthy of your time, your attention, your care, your love and your trust. The signs will be set by your mind with your heart.

2. ๐Ÿ’– The one who wins never quits. The one who quits never win. It will only take time and your being to reach your dream.
Always remember that even God did not quit when Adam, His first man fell into disobedience in the Garden of Eve. He has to plan and thereby, incorporating “TIME” to fulfill it.

1. ๐Ÿ’– If you see him/her with someone new, if the unexpected sighting hurts, in spirit and in truth, then, comfort your heart. Avoid them. Pray for them.

It is my hope and in my prayers that you find lessons from your ex-periences today.

I will leave a song for you today.

๐ŸŽถThe steadfast love of the Lord never ceases. His mercy has never come to an end. They are new every morning. New every morning. Great is Thy faithfulness. ๐ŸŽถ

For all of these O Lord, I praise You and I thank You. Let me find wisdom in my experiences. Amen.

Amen.

It does not come naturally for some ladies to submit to a headship in a personal way specially for ladies who have learned for many years to look after and decide for themselves. It takes maturity and guidance of the Holy Spirit so as for a young wife to heed and follow what is said in Ephesians 5:21-23. It takes the patience of a man or a young husband for a lady or young wife to grow in holiness under the headship of a man who loves her. I also am reflecting on the respect to one another of a brother and sister serving together for the Lord in church activities.

Under His Headship (Please Bear With Her, Brother)

While respect to one another is needed to be learned and earned, a trait can lead in easier way and without going through unnecessary conflicts to a life of respect to another person, and, that trait is gentleness.

Gentleness is a fruit of the Holy Spirit. These days, people accepts “trash” talking and name-calling believing that one will be heard if they speak that way.

And that, my sister is a lie.

Trash-talking or name calling may catch attention and they may be heard but they will not be listened to. Gentleness creates soft invitation to be listened to and not just to be heard only. To be heard involves sense of hearing only. To be listened to is receiving sense of hearing and the rest of other senses including common sense and sense of humor. Yes, those two, too! Smile.

Girls, since they will take the role of a mother and is the creature more likely to express through words than men, should pray to learn gentleness and debunk rudeness in their spirits.

A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger ~ Proverbs 15:1

So, gentleness is an agent of peace.

And we girls clamor for world peace during beauty pageants, aren’t we? So, we should live a life of Gentleness.

Gentleness can transpire as early as infancy (No L.O.L. I heard my Mom saying that when I was a baby I never cried frantically. )
Gentleness just like any other traits can be learned from the inside out. Gentleness from within means gentleness to yourself, gentleness in your thoughts and this gentleness will come out constantly to your spoken words and visible actions.
Gentleness is a first degree cousin of compassion. It invites to be in actual shoes of another before forming conclusion on certain situations and people. Gentleness is using the the tone that will avoid provocation of people and thus, calls the help of humility. Gentleness is not timidity.
Gentleness is bearing mind that you need to send across words of loving guidance without putting down on people’s actions and thoughts.

And yes, girl, you are a Sister if the spirit of Gentleness is in you. It looks good on you, in fact.

Dear Father God,
Send forth your Holy Spirit and transform us making us agent of peace through Gentleness.
Amen.
