TOTD, June 01- Doing What is Right

Doing What is Right

Many people will choose to do something wrong if it can avoid them from suffering. But hopefully, we can do better in doing what is right even that means we need to suffer. Jesus has already given His example. Suffered and died on the cross for doing what is right. Let’s not be afraid to fight for honesty. God’s Eyes see everything we do. (-fon-)

But even if you suffer for doing what is right, God will reward you for it.

--- 1 Peter 3:14

TOTD, 31 May- Humble Like Mother Mary

Humble Like Mother Mary

Today, I read the readings from the book of Luke.

I realized that-somehow-I’ve been quite arrogant. Not like Mother Mary, who praised the Lord and thought that she’s a lowly servant girl… I just need to learn more to be like her.

God, help me please…

Let me rejoice in You always, let me humble myself like Mother Mary, because I’m nothing without You. (-fon-)

Mary responded,

“Oh, how my soul praises the Lord.
47 How my spirit rejoices in God my Savior!
48 For he took notice of his lowly servant girl,
and from now on all generations will call me blessed.
49 For the Mighty One is holy,
and he has done great things for me.
50 He shows mercy from generation to generation
to all who fear him.

--- Luke 1:46-50

God-Assigned Life

Our life will be more worthy if only we use it at best to finish the work that God has already assigned to us. The work of telling others the Good News about His Grace, His Love.

TOTD, May 19: The Lord Will Keep His Promise

The Lord Will Keep His Promise

Talking about promises: we make them easily, but yet forget them more easily. We want others to keep their promises to us, but we break our promises easily by changing it every time. Most of us will keep the promises if it benefits us, but if it costs us a great deal of loss, we’ll easily change them again. That’s our habit as human. Not many people will be faithful in keeping their promises.

How about God? We want God to keep His promises to us, but yet we don’t want to care about our promises to Him. God, our Lord, is not slow in keeping His promises. It will be just in time-in His beautiful time. Our part is to stay faithful and do our best, let Him keep His promises in our life, because He definitely will. (-fon-)

The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

--- 2 Peter 3:9

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

TOTD, May 18- Serve Him Faithfully

Serve Him Faithfully

Do small things with love. Serving Him doesn’t always mean to do Big or Huge things all the time. Sometimes Yes, but many times we only do little or tiny things for our family with love. He has been faithful to us, it’s our turn to serve Him faithfully through the people surround us.(-fon-)

But be sure to fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you.

--- 1 Samuel 12:24

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

TOTD, May 12: Change our Expression and Smile!

Change our Expression and Smile!

This afternoon-somehow- I realized that I complained a lot. I can complain about almost everything in this life. That’s how great I am as a complainer. Of course, it doesn’t make me proud. I sometimes feel like Job, that my days are flying away without a glimpse of joy. But, in these verses below from the book of Job I also got some strength to move on. In God, I know that I need to be thankful by becoming a less complainer, forget about it, change my expression and smile.

With God’s help, I believe that I can be more thankful. Let’s try to lift our praise to the Lord, rather than complaining every time. (-fon-)

25 “My days are swifter than a runner;
they fly away without a glimpse of joy.
26 They skim past like boats of papyrus,
like eagles swooping down on their prey.
27 If I say, ‘I will forget my complaint,
I will change my expression, and smile,’
28 I still dread all my sufferings,
for I know you will not hold me innocent.

--- Job 9:25-28

TOTD, May 10: Dealing with Sins of Others

Dealing with Sins of Others

If we find someone’s fault, we need to point them only between the both of us. No need to exaggerate or point it in front of so many people and make them embarrassed. Knowing that we can also have the same shoe and make mistakes, we should be wiser in pointing other’s fault. We’re all only human and can make mistakes. So, be wiser. (-fon-)

“If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over.

Hannah prayed, felt rejoice, and got a new strength in the Lord. May every heart that seeks Him, pray to Him, got new strength in Him. Rejoice in the Lord always! (-fon-)

is lifted high.

TOTD, May 03-He Will Hear Us

He Will Hear Us

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

--- 1 John 5:14

It’s good to have the kind of confidence that if we approach God and pray to Him-asking according to His will, He will hear us. He’ll fulfil the passion that we have held so strongly and so long inside our heart. Of course the fulfilment itself is His mystery and will be revealed when His time comes in our life. But for Him, He knows everything in our life. Seek the passion-the good things that He has put inside of us. And keep growing and glowing in Him. (-fon-)
