Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. - Hebrews 13: 5
It's been a long time since I've blogged here at my Baul again. I've missed you guys. I've been busy lately and I have to let go of blogging for the mean time in order to finish my projects. Most of them are finished so here I am again. Now let me share you something about a reality that surrounds me right now - a reflection, my reflection.

Having an inspirational themed blog doesn't mean that I am always inspired or even mean that I am a strong person. It is true that when in difficulties, it is hard to thank God for the things happening around us. Difficulties come to everyone and Christians are not excempted. I've been through a lot lately but I am confident even when I struggle. I am confident that all things will still work together for good (Rom 8: 29).
The good thing about having an inspirational themed blog is that I don't have to go anywhere else to be inspired. Sometimes, I find myself reading back some of my articles to remind me how blessed I am. I am my own audience and sometimes I laugh at myself when I realize how I tremble on things or find myself troubled when I am having problems. I tend to loose sight of what I have while chasing a glimpse of what I wanted and missed.
I am weak and I am not afraid to admit that. And these past months have been a struggle for me and my family. Sometimes I think too much of how I'll be able to deal with all the problems that surround me. I forgot that there are other people whom I can rely on and whom I can put my trust.
I was watching the news awhile ago and watched as people struggle, tremble and cry as they try to reflect on the things they have lost after the typhoon. You'll really feel pity for them. The question is what can YOU do?
What can you do when you yourself have a problem? or your family?
It is a very good deed when you help other people but you are worst when you can help others while you deny help to your own family. So go help your family first. I am sure that nobody will ever hate you for doing that - other people may even love you for that and more so your own family.
Difficulties come and go and more will come. It is not how many problems we have accomplished. It is how we approached it and how we solved it. We should always be responsible on our actions even when things get rough in our lives and not compromise others for our own benefits.
I've said awhile ago that I am not afraid to admit that I am weak, it is true. My weakness is my greatest strength for my strength comes from God. I am God dependent and He proved that in so many ways. I am thankful that even during the times of my troubles I can still see how God moves in my life.
WE should stop and reflect on things before we loose our sight on God. He maybe offering us the answers already and we keep on looking on to other things. Our own selfishness tends to find a reason to compromise and look the other way. Remember, even sinful people like us can give rewards to our children, how much more our Father in heaven (Luke 11: 13 / Matt 7: 11).
Like what our quiet-time verse says - He will not leave us nor forsake us (Heb 13: 5).
God is so pleased to have us as His children (John 1:12) and for that He will not forsake us (1 Samuel 12: 22)
And this is our great confidence in Him, if we ask anything He will hear us (1 John 5: 14)
God bless to all and never cease in praying guys. Thanks for having time reading my reflections.
