See you all at the top of the Technorati list!

Loving Your Neighbor...

...is probably one of the hardest things to do. Especially if your neighbors are fond of making so much noise up to 12 midnight, belching out their vocal chords in their loud videokes, throwing their garbage in front of your porch, or simply parking their vehicles in front of your gate thus blocking your driveway. Especially if your neighbors are fond of staring at you whenever you go out of your doorstep, as if scrutinizing your looks and your actions. Especially if their kids are fond of tinkering with your stuff, whether these stuff are just being dried under the sun, or they are garbage waiting to be picked up by the garbage truck man. Well, I am talking about my neighbors, and they just drive me nuts!

According to our CLP speaker, loving our neighbors is one of our Christian responsibilities. As we are all one, how we perceive and how we treat them would be doing the same to Jesus Christ. Before, it was very easy to react negatively. I would easily curse and swear, and come up with scenarios in my head where I would be my b*tchiest self and tell them to leave my damn porch, driveway and garbage alone. But now, I always have to remind myself to extend my patience and divert my attention elsewhere. If I can spread the love, then it would be much better.

But at this very moment, when I can still feel the pounding of the floor caused by the bass vibrations of their sound system, I just can't help but blog about it and type away the angst.

Assessment

Among many other things that I like about attending the Christian Life Program is that it always keeps my feet on the ground. It helps to be reminded that in the matters of Christianity, I have tons more to learn, unlearn and re-learn.

I need to learn to have more faith. To pray faithfully, not just whenever I remember or feel like doing it. To study more about Jesus by reading the Bible and reading spiritual books. To make tithing a regular and wholehearted habit.

I need to unlearn my UP "activist" orientation. To let go of worldly angst and my being always at the complaining end. To let go of my pride. To let go of wanting to be always in control of everything. Because whatever that is happening in my life right now is because of God's master plan. And that I am merely a passerby, an instrument of His great work.

I need to re-learn how to take pleasure in fulfilling my Christian responsibilities. As a wife, mother, and worker. I need to re-learn the virtue of patience, forgiveness, and compassion.

It has been ten weeks since my hubby and I started with the CLP. And major things have happened. I may say it wasn't a smooth sail, but I know that it is for His glory. Opportunities are coming in like I have never imagined. I have never been this happy, so I am very excited about what lies ahead. I trust that it is going to be greater than ever!

Just Reminiscing

I stumbled upon my old motime blog today and I felt compelled to read posts dated between second and third quarters of 2004. I just find it funny realizing how arrogant I was.

Back then it was so easy for me to see things negatively and it was "relieving" to express my negative thoughts and emotions in many creative ways. And now here I am wanting to evolve into a bigger person finding it difficult to write from a positive enlightened perspective.

How is it possible that it is always easier to complain, than to praise? That it is always easier to criticize other people and events and play as victims of circumstance than to admit one's shortcomings? And that it is always easier to make excuses and point a finger towards someone else?

And whoever said that simply wanting to be a true Christian is one heck of a journey? See, I'm on the verge of complaining again!

ugh. gotta go. will continue post later.

Christian Life Program

As I write this entry, I am remembering how I started my spiritual journey which started about two years ago. Not that I was not going to church or was I being a complete atheist for the prior years. It's just that I realized that my spiritual life was somewhat shallow, and misdirected.

I have known God since I was a kid, and I have known the religious ways of the Roman Catholic Church. But beyond all that knowledge and routine, my spiritual life was going nowhere.

Last month, my husband and I thought of joining the Couples for Christ (CFC) in our church. But according to one of the members, we have to finish the 12-week Christian Life Program (CLP) first before we can be fully absorbed into the organization. So we signed up for it.

We spent the last five Saturdays listening to talks and engaging into group discussions. It was like going to school again, except we are learning about God's love, what it means to be a Christian, and how to lead a Christian family.

Having this CLP was one of the best choices we have made as a couple.I am learning A LOT. One of the most refreshing and empowering lessons that I have memorized by heart is that He is the way, the truth and the life. Our relationship with Christ can be likened to a tree with branches. He is the tree, the source of life, and we are the branches. If the branches are separated from the tree, they wither and die. That is what happens when we are not at one with God.

I am truly thankful that I have found this opportunity to know more about God and improve my personal relationship with him. Which is why I created this blog to share with you some of my reflections from my newfound path in my spiritual journey. I hope I will be able to inspire you, in the same way that you will inspire me.
