Footprints in the sand

I would like to share a very common yet inspirational story that we can apply to our daily lives specially now that the world is suffering in sickness, tribulation, chaos, economic crisis and calamities.

“Footprints in the sand”

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord.

When the last scene of his life flashed before him he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life.

This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. “Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why when I needed you most you would leave me.”

The Lord replied, “My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.”

I really love this story because it inspires me more to get closer to God. Whenever we feel down and hurt always remember that there is someone who is willing to help us and that is GOD. God will never leave us. When we have problems or sufferings in our lives and we feel that there is no one there to help, remember that God is there to carry us and give us a hand. He knows how to help us because he has suffered all the infirmities in this world. Let us continue to live our life well in the eyes of the Lord. Seek the Lord always and continue to be righteous, patient and faithful unto him for in the end we will be together w/ him in his kingdom.

Personal Prayer

In Psalms 46:1 it says and I quote, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

Prayer is the only way we can communicate to our Heavenly Father. Heavenly Father loves to hear our prayers. When we pray, we must first give thanks to our father in heaven for all the blessings he has given us, then we ask for guidance, help and forgiveness. We must also pray for our family, relatives, friends, neighbors, the sick & the needy and everyone else. Praying with faith, hope and real intent of the heart is what we should do.

God Hears Our Prayers

Heavenly Father hears and understand our prayers. He knows what we want and what we need. Sometimes we stop praying, thinking that Heavenly Father is not answering our prayers. When we ask for something to Him in our prayers, we should also remember that we in our own way should also work for it in order to achieve it, for faith also w/out work is dead.

God Answers Our Prayers

Heavenly Father answers our prayers. Only one of these can be the answer of our prayers – YES, NO or WAIT. We must always have a firm faith and hope to our Father in Heaven and to our savior Jesus Christ. Whenever we need help or in trouble, remember that they are always there to guide, comfort and protect us. Let us always come unto Christ for He will never leave us comfortless!

The Greatest Boxer of all time

Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, the number one pound-for-pound boxer in the world, is a very courageous, kind-hearted, strong, and faithful man. I’ve never known such a man like him who is very dedicated not only to his boxing career, but also to his fellow Filipinos as well.

Manny Pacquiao is a great fighter and a hero to us. Even though he has gained a lot of achievements in his boxing career, he has never forgotten to help his fellow Filipinos and has always remained humble and kind.

Pacquiao is not just a fighter but also a religious man. Whenever he has a fight, he never forgets to say his prayers, thanking the Lord for the opportunity to fight. In addition to this, he is also thankful for the good health he has and for all the Filipinos who are always there to support him, whether rich or poor, young or old. Moreover, even after his fight, he goes at the corner of the ring to say his prayers once more.

Pacquiao is the first Filipino boxer in the history who won seven world titles in different weight divisions. He has become great in his own way. He never gave up on anything. He has endured many things throughout his life — from the experiences he had since he was young to his well-established boxing career. These challenging experiences molded him to be a good fighter, as we now all know of — no wonder he’s been called “the greatest Filipino boxer of all time”.
