Kinakanta namin noon tuwing Friday
Ang ‘Pilipinas kong mahal’
Para maabot yung linyang
‘Ang laya mo’y babantayan’
Napakataas kasi nun.
Kailangan ng matinding buwelo.
Di basta-basta pinapasukan
Kaya nga dapat simula pa lang,
Talagang pinaghahandaan na.
Minsan, pag sobrang taas
May ilang di na kumakanta
Di naman daw abot e,
Di lalabas ang boses
Kung mapapahiya lang din, wag na lang.
Kay lungkot diba,
O Pilipinas kong mahal?
Hanggang kelan kami di iimik
Bakit ba ang hirap abutin
Ng laya mong inaasam namin?
Hanggang kailan kami mag-aalangan
Na ang laya mo ay bantayan?
Grabe ang pag-ibig ng Panginoon sa ating lahat. Walang katulad.
Mahal niya tayo kahit marami tayong pagkukulang. Grabe. Nakakalunod. Ibang klase.
Mahal niya tayo kasi mahal niya tayo. Walang kondisyon.
Wala tayong dapat patunayan. Hindi na natin kailangang magpakitang-gilas pa.
Sigurado ang pagmamahal ng Diyos sa atin.
Ang tanong, gaano naman natin kamahal ang ating Panginoong Diyos?
Panigurado, di natin matutumbasan ang pag-ibig niya. Di natin kaya. Basta, ang nais niya, mahalin natin siya nang buong puso, buong isip, buong kaluluwa, at buong lakas.
E kumusta naman ang pag-ibig natin sa kapwa?
Nagmamahal din ba tayo nang walang kondisyon? Ehem.
This is really my call. I know. I am sure.
I am called to teach the Word of God to the people.
In order to do this faithfully, I myself should study God’s Word deeply. And then live it out.
Teaching Math. Yeah, I also love this, but…
I want to teach not just Math. I want to be a teacher of many things.
I want to teach music and arts. I want to tell stories. I want to share the Word of God.
The question is How?
How can I be a teacher of many things, especially, a teacher of God’s Word?
Will that be more feasible if I become a public school teacher?
What if I take up Master of Arts in Biblical Studies?
Then I could learn more about the Bible and might be allowed to teach Bible subjects in Harris.
There I could also teach Math, music, and arts!
What about our dream library?
Would it really be a reality?
I hope so, and I believe I could be a teacher of many things in that library.
Let’s go back to the public school.
There I could teach Math and values and other life lessons.
I might inspire more students coz indeed there are more children in public schools than anywhere else.
What should I do now?
I don’t know the answer, Lord. I really don’t know.
Where are you leading me? What do you want me to do for You?
*Daily Prompt: Passionate
When Ber-months come in, countdown to Christmas also begin
And well, as my closest friends know,
I also start a countdown with my twin.
When we were younger, we would sit up the side car of our tricycle
And sing, “Happy birthday to me,” wholeheartedly 🙂
Aaah I miss those days ❤
Yes, we were kids then
And our neighbor would always ask us to go down, worried that we might fall.
But we never did till we finish our birthday song. Haha
Sitting side by side, we smile, raise our arms, and sing as loud as we can.
Happy birthday to me! 🙂
