Reflections for 2nd Sunday of Advent
Pls Read God’s Silent Message: MK 1:1-8 / 2 PT 3:8-14
Has anyone broken a promise made to you?
Or have you ever broken a promise to someone?
As much as possible, we don’t want broken promises … right?
I, for one, would strive as much as I could, just not to break a promise — as to my bunso’s request:
“Mommy, gusto ko paglaki ko, nandito ka pa din po ah!”
Sometimes, there is no easy way to fulfill, especially when the situation that you’re in is on a “day-to-day” basis. ‘Yong tipong “one-day-at-a-time” ang peg. ‘Yong tipong gabi-gabi umaasa ka na sana “bukas ulit!” Hindi mo kasi sure kung yong masakit sayo today magsa-subside na bukas; kung yong kinaya mo today, kakayanin mo pa ulit bukas.
When I’m in pain, I was like that voice of one crying out in the desert; I’m like striving for a thousand years with all those prayers, meditations, and “any source of hope” — just to still be alive the day after. That fact that cancer is a traitor thing, I can never tell when it would break my chance “to still be there” years more.
But you know what friend, on top of it all, it’s only a matter of MINDSET!
Isipin mo lang na kaya mo, makakaya mo kasi you have enough!
Walang hindi kakayanin ang taong nagmamahal since God loved us first. No matter how pressed with time you may feel, as long as you fuel your life with that desire to glorify God with your survival because you chose to trade your “not so good habits” with renewed ways and you advocate on inspiring others with your story, surely you won’t break a promise at all.
Friend, are you by some chance in the same situation as mine? Kung hanggang saan at kung hanggang kailan, be grateful enough that you have that ONE DAY – for with the Lord, that one day is like fulfilling a promise for a thousand years. #sunset
