The Returning Joy of my heart

How are you?
” I’m fine”, as I responded to my friend with low tone & emotionless.
Yes, I admitted that I’m fine physically, made smile to new acquaintances & show off that everything works together well, but deep inside, I have a hard time.
I hardly to point out what are the reasons but my assumptions, probably from my succeeding failures, or disappointments or just a status quo.
I admitted that I felt hurt; when I was failed of a certain exam, denied by immigration and betrayed by a girl that we already set for our wedding.
Ouch! really I felt ouch! My heart broke again. The feeling inside me was dried up, my mind directionless, my body feels tired, the twinkle of my eyes getting weak and my face lazy to smile.

It seems life went wrong
and doubt getting strong.
My path was darker.
And my sights dimmer.

How can I go forth?
If my mountain is so high!
Only I can do is to sigh!

The joy of my heart departs, my hope slowly fades.

But when I about to give up.

GOD started working in me,

He restored the joy of my heart,

hope renewed and my faith refreshed.

My God is beyond my dificulties, my dificincies and my dreams.
As a matter of fact, God loves surprises.

He likes to write a colorful stories so that I have something new to share.

My Prayer in Psalm 139:1-18 and 23-24 refreshes me as it says;

You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,”even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand— when I awake, I am still with you.

Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.*

Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.**

Raycaleblog readers.

Good day!

Gusto ko lng po e mention ang consistent reader ng Raycaleblog n nagmumula sa inyu, matagal n sanang ititigil ko ang pagsusulat pero everytime n binubuksan ko ang Raycaleb website nakkita ko po na may nagbabasa, kaya laking tuwa ko po. I did not know who really you are but I remember you in my prayers.

As a human being, hindi rin ako excempted sa struggles. Previously I was a hard time and I loss my apetite writing new blog. Pero because you are here kaya pinipilit kong itutuloy ang pag popost even once a month lng.

Muli, ako’y nagpapasalamat sa inyu. May God bless your family.

Exposed

You did something secretly, but in due time God will expose it publicly.

What is Something?- in this context, Anything that belongs to illegal activities, it includes; illicit sexual activities, witchcraft, bribery, corruption, hoarding, lies and among others.

Ang harsh nmn nito!
Too much heavy topic ba?.
Oo, Yung hindi sna nakakastress.
Ah…eh…

Well, whatever!…
” No one cares me! Anung paki nila sa buhay at sa katawan ko, buhay ko ito at kahit anung gagawin wala na kayu diyan! I am free to do whatever I want!

Ay ganun?
Anyway/s,

Sa katunayan, may nagke-care sa atin;akala mo lng wala, pero meron..meron, merong nag-ke care sa katawan at sa pagkatao natin, ang totoo nga niyan. God cares us so much kaya nga we are fearfully and wonderfully made.

Some of you say, “We can do anything we want to”. But I tell you that not everything is good for us. So I refuse to let anything have power over me.*

But, if you will continue doing of the said above, finally God will find a way to expose it. Sabi nga nila, walang usok na maitatago, cguro hindi ka nahuhuli this time but later on mailalantad din yan. Of course, you will face consequences, for God is JUST and TRUTH.

Remember,

For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.**

Yes, we made mistakes, pero yung paulit-ulit na, ibang usapan na yan.

But I will tell you what will happen to cowards and to everyone who is unfaithful or dirty-minded or who murders or sexually immoral or uses witchcraft or worships idols or tells lies. They will be thrown into that lake of fire and burning sulfur. This is the second death.***

HOW to SHARE HAPPINESS thru Social Media

Nowadays, Social Media (Soc Med) is like a necessity to human being, as I observed, everyone needs to update from time to time in Soc Med. I saw people scanning apps to their mobile phone while walking, riding public transportation and everywhere.

According to the recent survey; 67%- Facebook, 12%-LinkedIn,10%-Instagram, 5%-Twitter, 4%-Youtube, 2%-Pinterest, are people using this applications.(I forgot my source- ).

The Data showed that majority uses Facebook application and I myself included of that percentage. Everytime I opened my FB account, my newsfeed displayed more on pessimistic thoughts, anger, threats, revenge, bad things happened, unending arguments, killing here and there, nude & harsh images & videos . This kind of thoughts or image and videos are toxic to our brain cells and it affects to our emotion too, it may trigger or ignite unhealthy emotions, includes; unhappiness, anxiety and deppression but not limited to.

Social Media is for everyone, to express of what they want to, but be responsible on posting! Remember, abuses of “anything” or without self-control is not beneficial to everyone.

Let it be the Social Media, a good platform or media to feed positivity in life, thoughts of inspiration and happiness (healthy emotion).

We can share, optismistic words, inspired stories, and even about faith in God. Religious people live longer than people have no religion affiliation according to WEF article( if you need this article for verification just comment below then like and share my page so that I can answer you immediately.).

Therefore, be mindful and responsible when posting on social media, be a contributor of good things, peace maker, encouragement, happiness and inspiration.

Again, make this media a positive impact to our life.

Breath in, breath out then smile and be happy.

You make known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.*

“Behold, blessed is the one whom God reproves; therefore despise not the discipline of the Almighty.”**

The long silence

It’s been a long time na pala, tila nakakabingi ang mahabang katahimikan dito. Kahit ako’y sisigaw para nga bang walang makakarinig.

When I heard the music it was like a noisy gong and a clanging cymbals, there was no melody and no meaning in my ears and in thoughts respectively.

My heart beats faster but less affectionate, neither aggresive nor appreciate something.

Even new things are not an exciting to me anymore.

Is it a sign of status quo? Maybe yes, no or both?

What ever it is.
You, Lord, know every one
of my deepest desires,
and my noisy groans
are no secret to you

My heart is beating fast,
I feel weak all over,
and my eyes are red.*

Some people have gotten out of the habit of meeting for worship, but we must not do that. We should keep on encouraging each other, especially since you know that the day of the Lord’s coming is getting closer.**

Joyous Victory

This time, the joy of my heart overflows because I have new experience to be remember. I was born from the south but I had foot steps on the North, I traveled from East to West and I realized that the love of God for me has no ends.

I may fail or commit sin, but if I will sincerly & genuinely ask forgiveness to God, I will be forgiven.

Of course, the love of God is for everyone!

Don’t be afraid or hesistant, don’t let your past will pull you back or felt defeated because there is some one has already fought and paid for me & you, his name is Jesus Christ .

Yes its true, because ;

“All of us have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. But God treats us much better than we deserve, and because of Christ Jesus, he freely accepts us and sets us free from our sins.God sent Christ to be our sacrifice. Christ offered his life’s blood, so that by faith in him we could come to God. And God did this to show that in the past he was right to be patient and forgive sinners. This also shows that God is right when he accepts people who have faith in Jesus.”*

However, not only set us free & save from condemnation but also we experience greatest & joyous victory in our life as it says,

“But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”**

Therefore, no matter who we are, whatever struggles we have, & how big our sins is, God is willingly accept, help & forgive us respectively, just come to His presence & pray humbly. But if you don’t know how to pray, you can follow this prayer heartily & sincerly.

Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”

Welcome to God’s family and seek some one or church that will help you grow spiritually.

God bless & keep the faith…..
