It’s a piece of cake!

Have you had a feeling when all you need to have is just a piece of cake?

As some of you may know, my favorite cake is cheesecake! Every time I will have a slice of cheesecake, once it lands my mouth, ooh my! I can hear the angels singing hallelujah and I am lost in space. Now I know the reason why it is perfect for people who are stressed because when you spell it backwards it is D-E-S-S-E-R-T-S. And oh my……. I simply love it! Most especially when you pair it with coffee, I can fly and get lost in the wind hahaha.

Did you notice that there is an idiom expression of “It’s just a piece of cake”? It means something that is easy to accomplish. What am I trying to point out here? Everyday, we are preoccupied with our list of things to do within the day. Most of us have too much on their hands that some of it are getting out of hand.

My friends, life should be handled on what we can only accomplish. If we feel that our health is already at stake, we need to stop and simply take a breathe of fresh air. Life is short to focus on too much work. Life is about spending time with our love ones and being a blessing to others. Yes we need to work for a living but let us not forget that there is a life outside of the four corners of the office.

My friends, life should be lived simple. Allow me to say a prayer for you…

“Dear God, thank you for the gift of today.  Thank you for all the blessings we received right at this moment.  Send the Holy Spirit to the person reading my entry now.  Give them a sense of peace in their hearts that everything is in your hands and we have nothing to worry about.  Allow them also to be a blessing to one another.  In Jesus name I pray. Amen.”

Let us all smile as we face our triumphs because Life is a piece of cake!

Awakening Moments

Moments in our lives that we tend to question God why we exist. Sometimes we are surprised with the day to day task that we face each day. In this time and age, most of our moments are spent on electronic gadgets. We invest our time scrolling our facebook timeline, twitter, instagram, etc. This really saddens me because people seem to forget that there is a life out there. Moments of “Now” are being taken for granted because these moments can make a big impact to what the future brings.

I feel so blessed that I was able to experience to play on the streets, bike around the neighborhood, share toys with playmates, and etc. I will never forget the times that we close the entire street to celebrate Christmas and other special events with our neighbors. Endless laughs and stories to share that my neighbors, friends and love ones have had are the most unforgettable moments that no money can buy.

There are also moments that are very painful. I cherish these moments because I know that God is shaping our character through different challenges. Some people are choosing the easy way out instead of going through the hard process. Life is so sweet when we are able to cross the path of darkness towards eternity.  It is a good feeling that we are never the same person as we were yesterday.

We also have the tendency to jump into the future which sacrifices the moments of the present situation.  By doing so, we get frustrated, stressed and worn out which results into failure.  It is alright to plan things out, but let us not forget that by enjoying the journey, the puzzles can build its own pieces towards our goal.  As what the book of Mathew 6:34 says:

“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble on its own.”

I have learned that past exists only in our memories. I believe that everyone has the right to change for the better. It is going to be difficult to change if we keep on looking back to our old self. Remember, our past does not define who we are today. It is time to bury all the baggages that is slowing us down towards greatness.

My friend, it is time to forgive yourself. Always remember that God never looks on our faults. He is a loving and forgiving God. It is time to embrace the present moment and live each day with a grateful heart.

Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of the mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
