doing what's right

Everyone who is a child of GOd conquers the world. And this is the victory that conquers the world --- faith. 1 JOHN 5:4


You get impatient with your own life, trying to master a habit or control a sin --- and in your frustration begin to wonder where the power of God is. Be patient. God is using today's difficulties to strengthen you for tomorrow. He is equipping you. The God who make things grow will help you bear fruit.

Dwell on the fact that God lives within you. Think about the power that gives you life. The realization that God is dwelling within you may change the places you want to go and the things you want to do today.

Do what is right this week, whatever it is, whatever comes down the path, whatever problems and dilemmas you face --- just do what's right. Maybe no one else is doing what's right, but you do what's right. You be honest. you take a stand. You be true. After all, regardless of what you do, God does what is right: He saves you with HIs grace.

it is so nice to know that you have this kind of thought. just do what is right. sometimes it's so hard to do it, specially when things get complicated.

after reading the purpose driven life, somehow, my life changed. may connection gani sa siling mo nga doing what's right. doing what's right will always make God happy. and it makes you feel happy in return.

gen, i'm so happy nga you are close to God. it really touches me. it makes life feel lighter. keep it up. and what is more important is that you also share this closeness to God with others. thanks gen. take care and congratulations on your up coming baby.

hi vian! yes. it's really great being close to God. but of course its not everyday i am that "high" in my spiritual journey.. there are "dry" days.. but ang importante is we know nga ara lang gid sya pirmi.. never leaving us.. whether we do right or otherwise :)
