While you are busy reading this article, try mo rin makinig sa episode namin:
These viewpoints have been on my thoughts recently as I have a conversation with my caseworker. We talked about how sad nung sinuko ko yung kurso ko and how this job that is not my dream ruined my mental health and kung gaano kadaming oportunidad ang dumaan pero hinayaan ko lang. But merong isang tanong na parang tumigil ang mundo ko. “Nawalan ka ba ng faith nun?”
Admit it. I become lukewarm, I dispute with God, I cry a lot, I despise and blame my family, and I almost lose the relationship with them. A big wave that I had not anticipated arrived in 2022. Dumating ako sa punto na ang hirap na rin maniwala.
However, after what happened and after that conversation, which turned out to be an eye opener, I discovered two very crucial things.
- Minsan nasa atin din ang problema.
Blaming people for your situation will not make anything better. Stop looking for things na magagamit mo emotionally sa ibang tao para lang mabuhos yung bigat at galit na nararamdaman mo dahil may pinagdadaanan ka. We must be aware that sometimes God may send a great surge of unforeseen difficulties to put us and those around us to the test. But the real query is, will you fear the wave? or you’ll make a call to the person who can stop the wave? Think of it.
2. Naniniwala ka, natakot ka lang.
Kaya mo naman, naunahan ka lang. That’s it. But you know, the only thing that can defeat fear is by having a faith kahit kasing size lang to ng mustard seed (Matthew 17:20). Faith in the middle of pressure is also telling the voices in your head that you have God who is in control of everything. That you have this Man who can calm / defeat anything with a single word. Isa na dun yung fear na nararamdaman mo. Kaya wag ka matakot maniwala ulit, kasi hawak ka niya.
Hawak ka niya..
