Your faith has made you well

In someone’s smile, they hide something; what people see is the other side. People did not know, that in front of a happy face there was fear inside. Fear of loss, fear because of disease they have right now. If we cannot overcome this fear, we going to lose our faith, and we going to lose the battle. According to Andy Mitten, “Half of the battle is won in mind.”

In the holy bible, there was a story of a woman who had a discharge of blood for twelve years, and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but instead grew worse.

She had heard the reports about Jesus. She found out that many were healed and she said; he did it for others he can do it for me. For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.” The problem was that there was a great crowd surrounding Jesus. However, even she’s weak because she loss blood for years but she didn’t give up instead she started making her way to the masses. She keeps going, and her mind keeps saying I will be healed, healing is coming. She’s exhausted and finally fell in the ground, I’m tired, and I am weak, but I know I am close to my breakthrough.

The reason why she keeps going, because she holds the right thoughts playing in her mind. She crawls in few more feet, just in the right time she reaches out, and touch Jesus garments. And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease.

All of a sudden Jesus stop, and said, “Who touched my garments?” Moreover, his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, ‘Who touched me?’ ” He said, no, maybe somebody bumped into me, but I know somebody just touched me. Somebody draw miracle-working power out of me, they believe healing was coming, they believe new doors are going to open, somebody touched me with expectancy.  About that time Jesus looked at this woman, their eyes met, and she was afraid thought she done something wrong  but Jesus smiled, and he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace and be healed of your disease.”

To God be the glory.

When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond?

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in a moment of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. – Martin Luther King Jr..”

Once upon a time, a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and that she didn’t know how she was going to make it. She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time. It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed.

Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen he filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Once the three pots began to boil, he put potatoes in one pot, eggs in the second pot, and ground coffee in the third pot.

After twenty minutes he turned off the burners. He took the potatoes out of the pot and placed them in a bowl. He pulled the eggs out and put them in a bowl. He then ladled the coffee out and placed it in a cup. Turning to her he asked. “Daughter, what do you see?” Potatoes, eggs, and coffee,” she hastily replied.

Look closer, ” he said, ” and touch the potatoes, she did and noted that they were soft. He then asked her to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg. Finally, he asked her to sip the coffee. Its rich aroma brought a smile to her face. Father, what does this mean? The daughter asked?

He then explained that the potatoes, the eggs and coffee beans had each faced the same adversity – the boiling water. However, each one reacted differently.

The potato went in strong, hard, and unrelenting, but in boiling water, it became soft and weak.

The egg was fragile, with the thin outer shell protecting its liquid interior until it was put in the boiling water and the inside egg became hard.

However, the ground coffee beans were unique. After they were exposed to the boiling water, they changed the water and created something new.

Which are you? When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a potato, an egg, or a coffee bean?

To God be the glory.

It’s how I arranged my mind.


What I did today just reading book The Greatest Miracle in the World I really love this book by Og Mandino, I keep on reading because I am excited about what happens next — then,
checking my friend’s blog, I mostly spend my weekend like this. Sometimes I am hanging out with my friends, but mostly what I love to do is reading books, watching movies, playing online games. Five days 8 hours a day working, sometimes I feel exhausted, but I been doing this for ten years the same routine.

My uncle was always convincing me to quit and stay at home helping the community, but I figured it out, what if I stop, how are my personal needs? If I build another family how I can raise them without having a job? That is the questions that always comes up in my mind, that what ifs. My uncle’s advice, do not figure it out trust God and He will provide. My, what if’s stopping me from staying on the other side.

I still, choosing my job. I feel encouraged and amazed at the people having the courage to leave in their comfort zone, and focusing on building their dreams. When I see their smiling faces, their happiness I feel guilty, guilty of restricting myself to do what I love to do. Then I made a choice; I am doing this both! My job then photography and writing so I started this blog. Thus, therefore, happiness is merely making choices. Not waiting for something to happen, I set up my mind then I prepare myself then I do it.

I have reminded myself about the story of an independent ninety-two-year-old lady who was moving into a nursing home. Since she was legally blind and her husband of seventy years had passed away, the move was her only option. She waited in the lobby of the facility for a long time before finally being told that her room was ready. As she was escorted down the corridor, her attendant described the place, down to the curtains hung on the windows.

“I love it.” the elderly lady enthused. “But you haven’t even seen the room yet. Just wait,” the attendant responded.

“That doesn’t have anything to do with it.” She replied. “Happiness is something you decide ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn’t depend on how the furniture is arranged; it’s how I arranged my mind.”

To God be the glory.

The Power of Words

I want to share another story a very well known tale I know everyone already knew this, and I just want to reshare this just to remind that our words are extremely powerful and we must need to understand that the moment our words leave our mouth they are no longer ours, and we have to be accountable.

There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence.

Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.

Finally, the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all. He told his father about it, and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper.

The days passed, and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son to the fence, and he said, “You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same.

When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. It won’t matter how many times you say I’m sorry, and the wound is still there.”

When we say a word we give life to it and those words will live in a person’s heart, and whatever it is it depends on what kind of words you put on them it may impact to their lives, or it may ruin them.

According to Mohammed Qahtani, “Words have power, words are power and words could be your power, you can change a life, inspire a nation and make the world a beautiful place.” So now choose the right words and make sure you taste it first before you spit it out. Remember, we cannot live a positive life with a negative mouth.

To God be the glory.
