The real reason for Christmas

Is Jesus.

Not the gifts for you(it’s not even your birthday so its okay with or without it).Not the parties.Not the new gadgets or toys.Not even the food.

Jesus was the gift.The greatest,incomparable gift we could ever have.Imagine if we haven’t receive Jesus… we are all lost.Through him we can live a life in full not just here on Earth which is temporary but on heaven in eternity.

That alone is a wonderful fact not just a story why being thankful for the Father(God) and Son(Jesus) tandem is  one thing we can be ever thankful for even without the toys or gifts or food or parties.

Merry Christmas!

A strategy to finally forgive someone

Okay,I thought I was talking to myself here.I myself is struggling to forgive someone.It’s not that easy right?But as I was about to sleep last night after my prayers to God to give me strength to forgive,this went in my mind:

Imagine that person you cannot forgive will die tomorrow or today(sorry I know it was morbid).

Can you stand the regrets of not freeing yourself from the grudges?

Can you take  the  fact that the person died so sorry for what he have done to you and didn’t even know that you forgive him?

And lastly the most critical question that really made me have the big gulp:What if that person is your relative,a mother ,a father,wife,spouse,son,daughter or a sibling die without showing them that you love them?

The latter is I think most people who hurt us-our family.In a way they wronged us but that doesn’t change the fact that we share good laughs and memories and love to them.It is inevitable that they will  hurt us.

In the end you have to choose whom to love.

The sinner(the person who wronged you) or the sin(the wrong thing they did to you).

And this my friend what God did:

He chose to forgive.

To love the sinner and hate the sin.

Lessons to start and never stop learning

We came across different lessons ever since we are a child,going to schools to learn math, to read or  discover something from an  experiment.But these list I have came up with ,from which I have also thought like “hey,these are lessons that we know but takes  our lifetime here on earth to master”.So here it is.

To obey.

To be patient.

To forgive.

To listen.

To understand.

To give.

To receive compliments.

To be sorry.

To love(genuinely).

To play.

To laugh.

To rest.

To pray.

To know your limits.

To fight.

To speak your side.

To give way.

To be humble.

To control.

To say No.

To dream.

To value yourself.

To be grateful.

To please GOD.

Life is not just…

about having all the money in the world .

about having a hundreds or thousands likes on facebook.

about having the latest gizmos.

about  selfies.

about receiving stuffs.

about watching t.v.

This is what I think what life is about:

making money and give

spending time with your love ones

having an adventure that is worth remembering when you’re old or better yet a story to tell your grand children

being truly happy from a genuine compliment of your husband

eating  sumptuous dinner with the family

deciding to be happy

The list will go on but the best for me is

knowing God

knowing Jesus

know thyself in the image of Jesus how? read the manual of life:Bible

the latter maybe hard to comprehend , but just a personal thought :God is the author of life wouldn’t it be easy to live according to what He says?
