This photo was about a man celebrating prematurely – hindi pa tapos ang laban pero akala nya panalo na sya sa patimpalak. Ngunit in a split second, someone unexpectedly get passed him. He must be so disappointed that he lost.
Even a moment can change your life.
You would have everything you need now, but just like a thief in the night, life will sometimes catch you off-guard. Yung tipong bigla na lang may mangyayari sa buhay na hindi mo inaasahan. Yung akala mo mahaba pa ang buhay ng mahal mo, tapos bigla na lang may tatawag na nagkasakit na malubha or bigla na lang binawian ng buhay. Yung tipong mahal mo tapos biglang magsasabi na ayaw na nya sa yo dahil nakakita na sya ng iba. Yung tipong may trabaho ka tapos bumagsak bigla ang kumpanya mo dahil nag redundancy.
Kaya mahirap magtiwala sa anumang bagay or kaninuman dahil hindi natin hawak ang buhay. Wala naman tayong alam. What we can do is this – trust in the Lord. He is the Master Planner, the Author of life, the Creator of the universe.
Remember your Creator
in the days of your youth,
before the days of trouble come – Ecclesiastes 12:12
Alalahanin mo ang Diyos sa bawat tagumpay, sa bawat hirap at sa bawat sandali. Wag tayo makakalimot dahil ang buhay sabi nga ay parang usok lamang.
What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. -James 4:14
Lagi kang magpasalamat sa Lord because Jesus likes it when we are grateful about life especially when He did extra something special you have never asked but you have received it anyway. Remember the 10 lepers whom Jesus healed in the gospel of St Luke? Jesus healed them, but only one returned to thank Jesus afterward. Hindi na sila nakaalala. Maraming ganyan ngayon. But the Lord loves when we remember Him in everything we have received.
Life can change suddenly. Yes, we may not know what future holds but I say to you today, you are in palm of God’s hands. You should know that He holds the future. He knows the bigger picture of your life. He knows what’s best for you. He loves you. He cares for you. He will never let you down. Trust in Him alone. Things may change unexpectedly but if you have the Lord on your side, He says unto you:
“Be still and know that I am God…” -Psalms 46:10
We serve the God of suddenly. He can turn your life around from nothing to something. He will be there to rescue you. He will make a way where these seems to be no way.
