Meddlers

 

2 Thessalonians 3:11 New International Version (NIV)

11 We hear that some among you are idle and disruptive. They are not busy; they are busybodies 

  • while mothers-in-law have reputation for being prime meddlers, they have not cornered the market on this vice.
  • Men, relatives, co-workers and well meaning friends are also prone to prying from time to time. 
  • Unlike gossips, meddlers usually seek personal information directly from their subjects.
  • In all fairness, not everyone who makes inquiries is meddling. Many are sincerely interested in helping others.
  • Whether you are genuinely concerned or just plain curious, be especially careful to avoid probing.
  • It is best to wait for someone to volunteer detailed information about his personal health.
  • if you are prone to natural curiosity, you must make a special effort to keep you inquisitiveness. within the bound of what is socially and spiritually appropriate.
  • In some situation you may have no intentions of prying, however you may still run the risk of your inquisitiveness offending others.
  • He/she was not a child and could manage her affair just fine.
  • Even if you feel you have earned the right to stick your nose into the situation , walk softly. You might want to pray about it first and leave the matter to God. He is always better at influencing circumstances than we are.
  •  Do I have a sincere, unselfish motive for prying into this matter, or am I attempting to control thing for my desired objectives?

Proverbs 26:17New King James Version (NKJV)

17 He who passes by and meddles in a quarrel not his own
Is like one who takes a dog by the ears.

1 Peter 4:15-16New Living Translation (NLT)

15 If you suffer, however, it must not be for murder, stealing, making trouble, or prying into other people’s affairs. 16 But it is no shame to suffer for being a Christian. Praise God for the privilege of being called by his name!

Someone once said that one reason why people who mind their won business are succsessful is that they have so little competition.

BIG & small

Matthew 20:16New International Version (NIV)

16 “So the last will be first, and the first will be last.”

  • We may need to grow more in generosity and freedom from our need for money, in which case financial doors may close.
  • We may need to grow in humility, in which case grandiose wish. Fulfillment doors will be closed.
  • We may need to grow in our ability to delay gratification, in which case the ” Right now” door may be closed.
  • We may need to grow in  our ability to love our enemies or even our more prickly friends, in which case the “Lord change him” door may be closed. 
  • Many doors that look large to us are small to God and many doors that look small to us are very large to him.
  • In God’s Kingdom , small is the new big. In God’s Kingdom , the way up is down and the way to living is dying.
  • So we are called to never despair, no matter how small our lives look or how many doors that we desperately wanted to go through appear to have closed. 

Idle

Someone told me that he will pray for my “idle character” and I smirked back! How dare he tell me that when in fact even in my day offs I’m finding ways to be productive? He knew how serious I am at work.  How hard working I am in life, striving to be the best version of me.  It alarmed me really. I laughed at him and asked him “seriously?”  . I tried to defend myself  “ Oh C’mon ! I used to have my daily “ to do list,  recently I have my morning and evening routine. You know how I hate to do nothing. I was inspired by my new discovered bloggers and fond with these cool youtubers” And yes! He is serious! He stood for it and said “ You think a lot” and I was silent. I tried to listen while he was sharing his meditation. However I didn’t get over of what he told me and there I knew his point. In that moment I was able to contemplate, meditate and pray. His point is not being lazy physically but my spiritual realm is affected because of my idle mode.

When I heard the word idle, it reminds me of being lazy. Idle means simply doing nothing. But the real essence of the word is procrastinating physically, mentally and especially spiritually. It is not just being lazy and doing nothing in particular. We can identify idleness in physical realm. It is really known in physical and psychoenergetic realm. But we can’t recognize idle in our transcendental or spiritual realm. In fact once your transcendental realm is in idle, it will affect your psychoenergetic (cognitive and emotions) and physical realm subconsciously. Then what’s wrong with it? If spiritual idleness is not being recognized then it will affect your character. Let me site an example:

Once you over think you are in your idle mode. Entertaining fear, distrust, worry, judgment, and grumbling are the sign of idleness. Because when you are productive you will have no time for criticism, small talks, nonsense arguments, fear, distrust, judgment, grumbling and vulnerability.  When you are productive you are making a significant out of that thing. You produce well out of the productivity. You are rising and not falling down. You are mature enough to react and respond to a dilemma.

I realized that I over think a lot! In work, in any aspects of my life actually! And I realized that I cannot skip my spiritual realm because my strength comes from it. How can I be grateful if I don’t read my bible and meditate?  This world is rich in competition, power, treasures and critics. If I trust the lord, focus on my meditation and praise will I over think and be weary? No! I will be grateful and positive with life.

Do Not Let Go Of Passion

AAEAAQAAAAAAAAVcAAAAJDhmYjA0N2VlLWExYmMtNDg2OS1iZDBmLThiMGRiYzVhY2Y4Mw

Every human being got passion. Humans are made to be skilled- it was given by God as a gift. It was a form of grace.  You got to know it and live with it by heart. Don’t ever let go of your passion. If you think you are good at something and you love doing it pursue it! If you feel good when you express kindness, show kindness then! If you love to give then give generously. If you are good at expressing love, be genuine. If you are good in encouraging and making instruction then do counseling. If you are good at words and sharing wisdom then evangelize or make a book. If you are good in dancing, singing, making poetry then develop it and share! Life has many to offer, you just need to discover what’s in the box! 

 Romans 12: 4-8

4d For as in one body we have many parts, and all the parts do not have the same function,5so we, though many, are one body in Christ* and individually parts of one another.6e Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us exercise them:* if prophecy, in proportion to the faith;7if ministry, in ministering; if one is a teacher, in teaching;8if one exhorts, in exhortation; if one contributes, in generosity; if one is over others,* with diligence; if one does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.

Before anything else..

How do you define passion?

lovewhatyoudo

 

Passion is something you love doing. It is not something you’re master of but something you love. You are driven to do it because you got that desire. God poured us with passion because God is love. Therefore passion is love.

 James 1:17-18 says “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of first fruits of all he created.”

Sometimes passion is being left out; we slip it away in our heart. There is some point in life that we are going downhill. We are discourage, disturb, upset, we lose hope, self-esteem is low, we think we are not good enough. Life is changing, as well as priorities, perspectives, influence and lifestyle.

We are busy chasing people and career that we thought it can fill our emptiness. We forgot to trust God. We forgot that it is not people we need to please and glorify but God alone. We forgot to glorify him through our gifts, it turns out that we are glorifying our desire. So we got discourage and upset because we all know that humans really don’t satisfy. So Passion fades…

So we need to learn and relearn over time not to let go of God’s given passion. Once we neglect our gifts or passion with wrong reason God will remove it. We must fall in love with ourselves over and over again. And most especially to be in love everyday with God. What I mean of falling in love with ourselves is to love yourself enough just as God loves you. Always fill yourself with God’s love for you to glorify him. He gave us this character to glorify him alone.

 

Revelation 4:11

“Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created.”

No matter what happen. People may not believe what you could possibly do. You may feel envious because someone is good enough than you do. Do not let it in. Do not entertain those negative vibes; it is not from God but from evil. Believe in yourself and be positive about it. No one is made useless, everybody has a function. Appreciate those people doing good and getting better. They have gone also through a lot of things, you just don’t know it. So acknowledge them, you don’t know how acknowledgement can take its part of positivity. When you are down, falling apart, tired, slothful in spirit. Go and wander! Travel somewhere peaceful, find meaning and hold on to prayer. Go on and seek for him… then finally you’ll find him again. Do it day and night, these trouble shall come to pass.

Proverbs 8:17 I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

1 John 4:7-8  Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.  Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.

We were made uniquely but each one of us belong to a one body. No one is useless, everybody has a gift. Always remember that we are made to glorify him. So thank him for the passion. Do not let anyone snatch it. Don’t let him be disappointed for carelessness but work on it. Keep your passion burning

Romans 12:3

3c For by the grace given to me I tell everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than one ought to think, but to think soberly, each according to the measure of faith that God has apportioned.

. 1 Peter 5:6-7  Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you,  casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

Psalm 115:1

Not to us, O LORD, not to us, But to Your name give glory Because of Your lovingkindness, because of Your truth

Keep believing In love <3

Do small things with great love today ! I never thought I could help somebody by appreciating ,acknowledging and simply telling someone to keep on going ! It’s unexpected reaction that I thought it was a mere giving gratitude but indeed it gives inspiration to everyone. So I urge you to do small things with great love today !
You don’t know what they’re going through. Maybe they need a little push to discover how marvelous person they are.
You may say I had a bad day too!  I feel bad with myself! How can I spread love when I need love too? Don’t give up with love. Don’t stop believing that you can spread love. People may give up, but love won’t give up on you!You may fail to show it to others but you are the light in some people’s life.

You just don’t know it but you are.

Believe me what can small love do! 🙂

Phenomenon Of a Heart Broken

Most topics start with a good introduction or a good topic. But this is different, Let’s talk about being heart Broken this time and find positive views.

When you hear the word “Heart Broken”? What can you say about it? What can you feel about that word? Sad? Negative? Hurt? Depress? Disturbing? Ill?

Being heartbroken does not mean you need to be broken.
Being hurt by somebody and losing a relationship is a terrifying experience of human kind. The experience of heartbreak can be so intense; you feel sad, hurtful, you may have sleeping disorder, caught yourself crying at night, loss appetite and be depressive for couple of weeks, months or even years. It depends on your coping. It is very normal for a person to feel grief after losing somebody. But that doesn’t mean your life ends. You lose one person, not your whole-being or everything in your life; just a tiny piece. There is a difference of a heartbroken and a broken person. A heart broken person experience loss but does not lose his/herself in the process. A broken person losses both: a person, thing and him/herself.

Being heartbroken does not mean you are unlucky with relationship.
There is no such thing called lucky and unlucky. We are blessed by God, All of us.
There are people in our lives who come then leave and not be a part of your future you thought they would. But that’s life is all about that we need to learn. People come and go, forever does not exist. Only God holds forever.
You feel unlucky when you love someone so much, then that person rejects that love for someone else, Others have dealt with the death of a loved one or Your love one betrayed you and the most unacceptable reason is you need to break up because there is nothing left anymore. No more spark, you are not growing anymore, and you don’t belong to each other. We thought that he/she is the one but sad truth is he/she is not. That person is just a lesson.

Being heartbroken does not mean you are awful or your a bad person.
Many of us hearing the words, “It’s not you, it’s me,” Or He/she broke up with you because you have bad habits, and you don’t change. If you truly love the person you accept his/her imperfections.Be patient and support him/her in the progress of change. We all know that we are born sinners, nothing is perfect but God alone. It is not true either that human person cannot change, we can change! Especially when you ask God for it, you will change through the holy spirit. Expect that each person has flaws and appreciable traits. Do not love a person because he/she is perfect, Love an imperfect person. We are made in the image and likeness of God, so we are wonderful person with imperfect traits. If you had your heart broken, think of it that the person who loves you truly will love you even at your worst.

Sometimes you need your heart to be broken to see and understand life and God more. Most of the person had a true view of Love through there heart broken experience. They see God more, they understand why it end, they learn and became a better person/lover.
