Shaken but not moved

After February 6, 2012's 6.9 quake that hit some parts of Visayas, another horrifying earthquake shook Bohol, Cebu and Negros yesterday, October 15, 2013. Aftershocks are still causing trauma.

'twas a holiday, no work and no school; still blessed because if it wasn't a rest day, there will be more casualties. We are again tested. But why? No one knows. All we know is that our life is full of uncertainties. Only God's grace of salvation is certain. :)

These past few months, I can see how I indulge myself closer to worldly stuff and somehow forget to focus more on that feed the spirit. I have been overwhelmed with my desire to reach my dreams and aspirations especially for my family. I have fewer hours meditating and praying seem to be a routine. And I can feel my heart getting heavy on that thought.

When I come realize all of these, I got the answers to my questions: Why am I still struggling at work? Where is my peace of mind? What happened to my relationship to the people around me? Now I know, because I left Jesus in the corner of my room. I can never have peace of mind, good relationships and contentment if  I don't keep Jesus in my heart.

Thank you Lord for embracing me over and over again though at times I tried to let go. Thank you for lifting me up even if I can't even fight for you in front of non-believers. Thank you staying faithful in your promises of a good future and a wonderful life.

With all these calamities, thank you Lord for You did not forsake us nor leave. Cover us with the blood of our savior and keep us safe all the time. Help us to glorify your name in everything that we do.

In Jesus Name, Amen.
