So no notes for this week... sigh... no one helped me get a copy too... forgot to ask. But CX letting me photocopy his. AND THE TITLE's the reason! I'm on exercise... EX ******* (classified nya)
at ***** (oso classfied nya)... Its damn fun... I'm blogging on site now with my PS behind me.... the time is now 0302. help! i still need to stay awake till 0600. I wanna go home...
Was chatting with candy... something came up.. the fact that church takes up a lot of time... aaaa lottttt... I'm not complaining... just saying that it does. i like going to church... and cell... but its damn cute when i think about the initial struggle i go through... first of all.. its "me" time den the "i dowan i dowan... i still wan to rest" time followed by "church" time den finally the "i dowan i dowan... i still wan stay in church" time. Haa... wonder if i'll ever get used to it.
Mmmm... On this note of moral and spiritual dilema that i face and think about on a daily basis... i think i'd share one here for anyone that would read it. Here goes:
A man is praying to God that his failing business will recover, He's been a faithful servant of God and been a good christian. He had been praying very hard and his cell has shown him support in prayer as well as morally. Sometimes he grows frustrated that his prayers have not been answered but he alwas kept it in check believing that one day it would be answered and his business would recover and maybe even prosper.
Cell mate A told him when seeing him in his struggling state, "You need to hang in there, always remember, if one payer isn't enough, pray more and God will eventually show you the path." And to this he answered,"Thank you brother, for you're advice and guidance. i had almost forgotten."
He continued to pray fervently, as his business held on by a thread.
Cell mate B told him, " Maybe you're looking at this in the wrong way, you musn't only rely on God, God wants u to show some effort as well. Pick yourself up and work harder. We're there for u. And to this he answered,"Thank you brother, for you're advice and guidance. i had almost forgotten."
He concentrated on working hard, but still the business wavered.
Cell mate C told him, "I tell you now, even when i have no right to... You're prayers are not answered beacuse they have been selfish, and you're actions bear no fruit because you have not used them for the lord. Pray for others, without expecting returns, only when u do that will you be great in the eyes of the lord. Use that strength that you go about you're job for the lord and you will be annoited." And to this he answered,"Thank you brother, for you're advice and guidance. i had almost forgotten."
The story ends here, i do not know wat he did after, nor do i know how many cell mates had helped him but i think i have made my point... or not. I'm not sure. Friends, wat you've read is completely hypothetical and may never happen to anybody... It's just Food For Thought. Think about it. Then maybe share it.
