I think it’s always awe-striking how our God— Creator, King, our glorious Father— would spend the time in also doing small things for us everyday because of He loves us so much. Whether we are aware of it or not, He is present, holding things in our lives together, never leaving nor forsaking. I hope that today, we do not miss His hand in the seemingly little things that He also works on for us because He really cares.
—  Pam Carbungco, in the little things

“Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years;  and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while.” Revelation 20 :1-3

Beloved, I hope that we remember this. Whatever it is we’re scared of today— an exam, a meeting, a decision, an announcement, or an event— let’s remind ourselves that God truly loves us. These are not just empty words, though. Because God loves us, He’ll stand by us through whatever. Because God loves us, we don’t have to be afraid of losing or screwing up, because He’ll guide us. His help is real. It really happens. God’s Word, which made everything we see come to existence, also has power in our lives. Don’t just think about Him, trust and believe Him like we would with a friend or parent.

The same goes with our worries for tomorrow. We’re not facing them alone. The heaviness of living our lives is not ours to bear alone. We have a Father who leads us, who takes care of us, who cares for every decision we’re gonna make. God is not just someone up there that we have dance around so we may not displease Him. He’s within us right now. He knows everything, we don’t have to dance around Him, we can be real. We know that despite it all, He’s gonna be with us.

I appreciate your quaint traditions and superstitions. I, on the other hand, am an evolved being who deals solely with the source of light which exists in all of our hearts. That middle-man thing is wacky, and I appreciate it. Gotta run. There’s a voice that’s calling me.
