RELIGIOUS IS SEXY
"God loves us, but do we love him?"
(August 27, 2010)
I went to the hospital today, I claimed mom's antineoplastic drugs and visited my cousin who has been confined due to Kidney failure since Monday. On my way home I was thinking about those problems that I and my family been through a lot. I had a one on one talk with my cousin, I told him not to give up for himself and for the family and not to worry about things, just pray and pray. He told me that he went to the chapel in the ground floor of the hospital and pray. He knows that he got ill because there is a reason and that reason is to remind him that there is God. After his prayer he felt good and his color changed back to normal. He also told me that when my mom came there he told to himself that he has nothing to worry because my mom is a woman, old enough but still survived stage 4 Ovarian Cancer and he's the opposite, a man, young and he knows he can survive. My mom has been strong because of us her family and because of her faith. Yes! Her faith saved her. I still remember when the doctor told us that she's 50/50 and we needed to prepare ourselves Physically, Emotionally, Monetary and SPIRITUALLY. God almost take my dad from us 20 years ago but he survived because of his faith and the people who prayed him. I always tell that I am not religious but I believe in God. Even intelligent people believe that there is God but sometimes there are some hypocrites, they go to church and pray but they never put it in action. I realized that God has been good to me as a father. Provides me things that I was dying to have for and guides me wherever I go. Last year I started attending a catholic fellowship with my mom in Manila, I remember that the nursing board exam was released that night. My friend texted me and told me that I didn't make it, instead of crying I praise him more. Airplanes keep passing by that night and I pray to God "Please let me ride on that one". After few months I received a free Visa and Plane Ticket from U.A.E. My dad told me that he saw 3 airplanes in the sky on his way to work. He prayed to God to let the 3 of us ride on those planes. God heard our prayers, he gave my parents multiple visa to United States and now is going to have their vacation on September. I was so blind but when I accepted God in my heart, now He showed me how powerful he is and let me see the beautiful and wonderful things that is happening around me. I don't have to tell what are those but all I can say is God is good all the time. After following God's words and seeing people praising him, it helps me to grow inside and make me a matured woman. My Aunties that day on the hospital were asking me if I got a boyfriend, one of my Aunties said that I'm looking for a rich man, I just smiled and nodded. I thought having a high standard when choosing a man is not good but I was wrong, it is for the better. I find people who are kind-hearted, God-fearing and religious sexy. Now I can vividly see the difference in me, let God come inside your heart to see the difference in you. I never see God but I can feel him and his greatness. I compare it to the air we breathe, we don't see it but it exists, we feel it and give us life. Thank You Lord for the Wisdom, trustworthy friends, loving family and for everything. I don't know how to thank you but I will worship and praise you until the end.
