I’m really blessed to those people who shamelessly share God’s moves in their lives. Whenever I hear and even reading something about God, I cry. It makes me cry even more when people shy away from their pride but bow down in humility to the Lord. I don’t know. I guess, if you’re a Christian, you just know how you feel in God’s presence.
There’s just one thing I can’t seem to understand. What do people have to be afraid of sharing God’s glory? There’s nothing to lose. Yeah, maybe, the effort of talking. But once you try to share, for example to your friends, you might inspire them(and that’s a plus point to God). “Might,” yes, but at least you did your part. As a Christian, we are wise in Christ. And wise people don’t debate.
If they stand on their own righteousness, speak nothing. We all know that truth still stands! If people still beat you up… don’t be surprised! In the Old Testament, the prophets were persecuted, just as Christians are persecuted today. Let them argue with God!
We need to humble ourselves before God. Because in due time, God will surely bless us. Sharing God’s goodness is one way to say thank you. And when we appreciate what He did in our lives, He will give more grace; He will exalt us. Praising Him and sharing His wonderful works should come naturally. We are His creation, even we are undeserving, He gave us life!
But, please, I don’t say that my life is perfect or I’m not having troubles with my life. I’ve been tested by God since then. But knowing God is in control, I’m happy and contented. There’s fullness of joy in God’s presence! Sometimes, I can’t stop crying and laughing like a daffy. I am just amazed at how God moves mysteriously in my life!
Before I end this up, please remember that in God’s law, “those who will plant, will harvest.” So, don’t waste your time! Spread the Christ-life! Wait upon the Lord, a great reward is waiting for you as He promised!

“Kindness doesn’t go unanswered. Even though it seems like thanks and acknowledgments for good deeds are in short supply, God notices them. When you feel like giving up because gratitude eludes, remember that God is delighted in your efforts. Don’t stop showing kindness because you feel unappreciated, the author of good things appreciates you very much.”—God Wants You To Know
"You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food from fresh ingredients." - Julia Child
I couldn’t agree more! And we all know that one key ingredient for a healthy living is freshness. This is what Dole root for — a healthy living — through their high-quality of fresh fruits, vegetables, and packaged food.
Last night, August 26, at the Magsaysay Institute For Hospitality and Culinary Arts (MIHCA), Dole featured this important matter to all the guests of its Great Dole Cook-Off.

“It’s okay to say no. It is better to do a few things well than a bunch of things shoddily. If you are feeling overwhelmed, don’t take on anything more. It’s okay, and you might be giving someone else a chance to get involved. You don’t have to be all things to all people; a few things to a few people will be just fine.”—God Wants You To Know
“Sometimes being silent is the only way to speak the truth. Sometimes words simply cannot capture the subtle nuances of your feelings. In such times, avoid being verbally misunderstood, by letting the silence speak through your eyes, your breathing, your posture.”—God Wants You To Know
“Everyone is looking for love, but the blessed ones do the opposite. Blessed are those looking to give love. Right now think of three simple ways you can give love and be blessed.”—God Wants You To Know

“Truth always wins. Doing right is never wrong. Being honest and trustworthy is the way to live. Perhaps a slight twist of the facts might bring a short term gain. A little misrepresentation might bring some short term satisfaction. But in the end truth always wins, so live like a winner.”—God Wants You To Know
“There is much more good in this world than bad. Don’t let the media fool you. There are kind, good-hearted, generous, loving people all over this world. They just don’t get nearly as much attention as the ‘bad guys’. Remember that there is goodness and love all around.”—God Wants You To Know
“You can’t hide your shortcomings from God. Failures, weaknesses, and fears; God knows them all. Many people attempt to hide issues from God, but it is futile.Seems like a bummer until you realize that God loves you anyway; unconditionally, immeasurably and infinitely.”—God Wants You To Know

“You weren’t created to be a failure. Sure some things may not have worked out and there have been some disappointments. But all these things helped guide you in a direction that was meant for you. Your life has purpose and significance. Try to be patient if it isn’t all crystal clear just yet. For now, just know that you weren’t created to fail.”—God Wants You To Know
“Creativity is good for the soul. Creativity is when your spirit gets a chance to play and express itself. So whether art, dance, cooking, making music, writing, or creating a garden, let yourself go! Create!”—God Wants You To Know
Sometimes that’s just the way it is. Sometimes things happen, and we can’t understand why. We just have to trust God that things will work out. Don’t stop talking to God when things happen that you can’t understand. Be honest about your feelings. Ask God to show you why He has allowed certain circumstances and what you are supposed to learn from them. Whatever you do, don’t just sit there and be frustrated. Go to God. Tell Him how you feel. He can take it. And He loves you more than you can ever understand. I think one of the hardest parts about people is dealing with other people - the criticism and the ridicule, the gossip and rumors. Like what James Daly said, "You’ve just got to focus on excellence and try not to be distracted by the news and the rumors and the absurdities of the stories that were coming out."
You just need to treat them with kindness. Because as you show kindness to others, kindness will return to you. Sure, there will always be those people who are rude, but when that happens, take it to God. Ask him to show you how to respond. Then forgive and pray for them. Don’t dwell of the malicious things someone says to you. Remind yourself of special people in your life. Forgiving and praying for someone isn’t always easy, but as you show kindness to others, you will receive kindness in your life. (From my old post—10/25/08)
“It is also important to know what you do not want. Sometimes when you go through a period of great difficulty and struggle, it is so that you can finally realize what you do NOT want in your life. Then finally, at long last, you can embrace what you DO want.”—God Wants You To Know
