Use those Rocks!

Pls Read God’s Silent Message: John 20:19-31

Kerygma Lenten Recollection
We were once Lost…

Have you been @ your rock bottom lately?

Have you committed some mistakes despite the many warnings na binigay sayo to save you from further pain? And has that been the reason why you keep on finding some other ways para sa iba ka maghanap ng comfort; — or has that been your reason for you to be aloof of the one who kept on giving you some guidance & reminders, yet you doubted?

Hmmm…wag ka na ma-conscious! Kasi, you might just have forgotten na ‘yong iniiwasan mo para mag-comfort sayo — that “someone” conquered death just to be alive for you; and would always be there to give you that hug even if you don’t say: “just what i need”!

Wag ka na mag-alala … kahit na at first you don’t completely listen, and kahit na ilang paulit-ulit na inakala mong hindi ka naiintindihan kaya you’ve been withdrawing yourself from fellowship and even from the truth, — that “someone” have already forgiven you and has been wanting to comfort you and help you up from your rock bottom!

On occasion, we tend to be Didymus: a twin character / a Thomas

– we love, yet we seclude ourselves from the freedom of the truth;

we believe, yet we doubt!

But you know what, from time to time, we have to humbly accept that what brings us to the rock bottom of our life – is that fact na “madalas kesa minsan, we keep on challenging God’s presence in our life!”

Thomas: “Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands and put my finger into the nailmarks and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”

Minsan, ang dami nang marks/signs na ipinakita sa atin ni God, pero tayo, we opt to stay in our mats kasi naging “comfort zone” na natin ‘yong nasasaktan tayo; at iniisip nating mag-persevere kahit na sa maling paraan – kesa paniwalaan natin si God sa mga plans nya for us! Minsan pa nga, we already inflict more pain to God kasi we are allowing some insults to His image IN US — each time we tolerate the opponent to rule over our decisions and actuations.

Dear friend, we have our freewill to lift our own-self from our rock-bottom! We can discern God’s voice “kung saan at ano” ang dapat nating i-persevere in our everyday life! We should also decide WHAT TO QUIT kasi if we won’t, we are surely dragging our life to a much deeper “bottom”!

Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.”–Jesus

If at first, it’s difficult to believe what’s in-stored for us, let us strive to work on our miracle for “complete trust” in GOD so that later on, as Bro Bo Sanchez challenged us during our successful KLR, we can eventually be A MIRACLE TO OTHERS – kaya sige na, ‘wag na magdalawang isip: QUIT that pain and BOUNCE! Inspired by our recollection, we don’t deserve to stay at our “low life” – use those rocks instead and GET PROMOTED in life! #sunset
