“God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world.” – C.S. Lewis

Araw-araw nagsasalita ang Diyos sa atin at lagi Siyang may sinasabi para patnubayan tayo, ilayo tayo sa masama at ilapit tayo sa Kanyang pagpapala pero hindi natin Siya laging naririnig (o pinakikinggan) dahil marami tayong mga bagay, gawi o tao na pinagkaka-abalahan sa buhay. Kung minsan ang mga ito ang nagiging sentro ng ating mundo, naglalayo sa ating atensyon at pagmamahal sa Kanya.

Jesus replied: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’This is the first and greatest commandment.”-Matthew 22:37-38

Pinahihintulutan ng Diyos mangyari ang mga hindi magandang bagay sa buhay natin upang muli tayong lumapit sa Kanya. Nais ng Diyos ibigay sa atin ang pinakamabuti pero minsan dahil sinusunod natin ang sarili nating emosyon at isip [na hindi naman laging tama dahil tao lang tayong nagkakamali], nasasadlak tayo sa dusa na minsan tayo rin ang may gawa. Pero mabuti ang Diyos, hindi Niya tayo pababayaan kung lalapit lang tayo sa Kanya at hihingin ang tulong Niya.

Kaya Niyang baguhin ang isang negatibong sitwasyon at ayusin ito para sa ating ikabubuti kung tayo ay magtitiwala at susunod sa Kanya.

“Be still, and know that I am God…”-Psalm 46:10

Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?

Ang sagot ay para gawin tayong gaya ni Hesu-Kristo na Kanya ring anak (gaya natin), magkaroon ng mga ugaling mayron Siya, naisin at sundin ang kalooban ng Diyos para sa atin na siyang pinakamabuti kaysa sarili nating plano para sa buhay natin.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”-Galatians 5:22-23

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.”-Jeremiah 29: 11-13

  1. while looking at the archives, i saw this article of yours,nagulat ako kasi may libro si Ed Lapiz (i guess kilala mo naman po sya) na ganito yung title.akala ko you will be sharing his works kasi db minsan you do that..pero gawa mo pala…so i just want to share bout the book, iba kasi yung mga ginamit nyang verses dun, somehow may pagkakapareha ng paliwanag, dun po kasi pinaliwanag na there is no really “good people” is the sense na we are all law breakers sa ten commandments, that we are not righteous on our own but bcoz of God’s grace, that there is no such thing as “bad things” kasi lahat ng nangyayari may reason nman and His plan for us is not to harm us.

    yun lang po, nashare ko lang. :)))
