This happened almost three weeks ago. And I’m telling you, I won’t forget this one. Never. I may not be a good writer so kindly bear with my grammar and/ or if there’ll be any violent reactions just PM me, I’m just a text away.
Truly ,truly this is more than just a status update. This is a testimony convinced me that no matter where you are in your walk with God, you can always be a blessing. I’ve been dealing in my new world for the past three months and still, He never meant my life to be boring.
Noong una, buong akala ko boring na talaga ang araw araw ko. Oh well, bahay-trabaho-bahay. Very tiring. I just hate a very monotonous life. Weekends lang ang ministry. Then whew!, He gave me a slap! *Ouch* Yana! Gising!
Ako nga pala ang pinakabata sa office. Noong una, I really didn’t know how to deal with them. Ang dami nilang kwento sa buhay na “Oh no! Shocking”. I was like “really? Really? May ganun pala? Di ba ganito na sya, bat ganito pa sya?”… and more questions left unanswered.
And there was this man who shared his life during our Friday English 101 (dahil English 101 yun, kailangan niya magsalita ng Ingles). Hindi namin sya naringgan ng kaseryosohan nung una and then he opened something that made the atmosphere so gloomy. His daughter was confined in the hospital for almost three months. Isa’t kalahating taon palang yung anak nya, at… ano daw 3 buwan ng nasa ospital? Haay…Imagine? She was diagnosed with pneumonia then sepsis, a potentially deadly medical condition that is characterized by a whole-body inflammatory state . That broke my heart.
Hanggang sa mag-uwian, di ko makalimutan yung story nya. There were regrets in me. “Sana ipinagpray ko sya, sana di ako nahiya, I’m just a newbee kaya baka ganito, ganyan…at maraming excuses. “
Sabado, may pasok pa din. Kahit busy, promise gagawa at gagawa ang Lord ng way for you to go out of your comfort zone. Nagkaroon kami ng time para makapagkwentuhan ni kuya. Napag usapan na uli naming yung anak niya. At ako * eto na ba Lord? Gagawin ko na?…*. I asked every details regarding their situation. He told me that everyday he spend a thousand just for her daughter’s medicine. Urgh, wala na sya sinusweldo ganun ba yun? At by faith, I told him that I want to pray for his daughter. He thanked me for the prayer. For a week, I also included them in my prayers. I even sowed for them.
At lumipas ang mga araw, araw at araw, Sabado na uli. It was an ordinary day turned into an extraordinary experience. Pagpasok ko nakasalubong ko si kuya, I couldn’t figure out what’s with his smile. Then he told me “Maam, thank you po sa prayers nyo ha. Nakalabas na po yung anak ko sa ospital, maintenance na lang po ng gamot nya.” At that very moment, I couldn’t explain what to feel. At nasabi ko na lang “Whew! God is so cool!”. The long wait/ agony is now over. He turned mournings into dancing, He is indeed a supernatural God. Nakakabaliw ang Lord. Minsan kailangan lang nating mabatukan o masampal para kumilos, pero wag kang magagalit sa Lord, or mas maganda kung ikaw mismo sa sarili mo ang magkukusa.
Another thing is that, when we’re operating on the basis of reason, all we can see is how big our giants are, but if we’re operating in faith, all we can see is that how small our giants compared to God. God didn’t design us to simply stand by or listen and watch life pass as we wonder. He created us to bless other people. He created us to be more than conquerors of the giants that paralyze us with fear. Kung alam mo kung ano ang kailangan, kumilos ka! Wag kang mastagnant kasi baka pamahayan ka ng lamok. Maging sakit pa ang maikalat mo*syempre para sakin din to* …( “Kung hindi tayo ang kikilos sino pa?”-sabi nga ng isang kakilala… ) “There are no rooms for excuses duh!”
Let us bless nations. Let us bless our brothers. Let us arise and shine for HIS glory! Marami tayong kayang gawin kailangan lang nating kumilos. Kung sinabi na ng Lord, maniwala na tayo. Tumayo na agad at maglakad. Let us plot wars. If we want change, let’s start it in our selves. The real change happens when we lift our standards inside. Let us CHANGE THE WORLD and MAKE HISTORY!
