Tuesday eManna: Eating Our Difficulties as Food


I have random posts every Tuesday, posting only what comes into mind. However, after the reflections on the happenings of our today's environment, I decided that I would post my reflections on the word of the Lord every Tuesday of the Week. To make this a double digest, I decided to make this a meme and would call it , "Tuesday eManna". To know what is Manna , know it here.
eManna for Today:

Num. 14:7 And they spoke to the whole assembly of the children of Israel, saying, The land through which we passed to spy out is an exceedingly good land.
(8) If Jehovah is pleased with us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us; a land which flows with milk and honey.
(9) Only do not rebel against Jehovah, nor should you fear the people of the land, for they are our bread. Their protection has been removed from them, and Jehovah is with us; do not fear them.

There is another noteworthy matter in connection with Caleb. He told the Israelites that they could go up immediately, they could overcome, and they did not have to be afraid of them
[their enemies]
, because “they will be our bread.” Bread is something to eat. Bread is something that brings increased strength, that makes one stronger after he eats it. The inhabitants of the land were admittedly “men of great size,” but in Caleb's eyes, they were food for God's people. He not only honored God's promises; he despised all the difficulties. Everyone who has genuine faith honors God and lightly esteems all difficulties. But this leaves no room for pride, for only those who humble themselves before God will be able to stand upon His victory.

Every time you meet a difficulty, every time you find yourself in an impossible situation, ask yourself this question: Am I going to starve here, or am I going to eat? If you are relying on the Lord for victory and allow His overcoming life to be manifested in you, you will find fresh nourishment and increased vitality, and you will be fed once again. Bear in mind that people who do not eat well cannot grow into maturity. Our bread is not only the word of God, our meat is not only to do His will, our bread is also the Anakim--the difficulties that are in our way. Many eat too little of the Anakim. The more we eat the Anakim, the stronger we will become. Caleb is a grand illustration of this. Because he accepted the Anakim as “bread,” he was still full of vitality at the age of eighty-five. His strength was the same at eighty-five as it was at forty. So many Anakim had been assimilated by him over the years that he had developed a constitution which showed no trace of age.

This is also true in the spiritual realm. ...there are those who have met and overcome difficulty after difficulty, temptation after temptation; they are full of vigor because they have fed well on Anakim. We have to eat our difficulties and our temptation. Every difficulty and every temptation Satan puts in our way is food for us. This is a God-appointed means of spiritual progress. The sight of any trouble strikes terror into the heart of those who do not have faith, but those who trust Him say, “Here comes my food!” Praise and thank the Lord, all our trials, without exception, are bread for us. Every trial brings in growth after we have eaten of it. As we accept one trial after another, we are more and more richly nourished.

Summer Outing at Triple-G Beach!

Happy Monday!!! I was tired from the long trip to and from our company outing last Saturday! We had plenty of sun and my daughter loved the waters a lot. She was literally swimming the whole day. She seemed to have all the energy and never got tired from waddling on the waters.
We went to Triple G Beach Resort in Laiya, San Juan Batangas.




It was fun at the beach with my colleagues and their families. The day became hotter with all the laughter and cheers all around.

Oh by the way, got this new template from Leelou. Suddenly had this mood for a new theme so I grabbed one free template and viola here it is. Hope you love it.

Shoot Me: 3/52 (Mi Familia)


In truth a family is what you make it. It is made strong, not by number of heads counted at the dinner table, but by the rituals you help family members create, by the memories you share, by the commitment of time, caring, and love you show to one another, and by the hopes for the future you have as individuals and as a unit. --MARGE KENNEDY, The Single Parent Family

Couple's Corner: Honesty is the best Policy




Rodliz’s Nest


Hello! It's nice to be back to Couples Corner. I have missed this meme since December. It's my first entry for 2010 then. This is kinda late, this was supposed to be yesterday but I was preoccupied so I thought to finish it today. I feel great to be here again. Our topic for this week is " Honesty is the best policy" .

Mommy Liz is brilliant to came up with such topic as I believed that Honesty is one of the best foundation in a successful marriage life. Lies is the spawn of the father of darkness Satan. When a relationship is surrounded by lies and dishonesty the union will be divided. We may think that it is okay to lie sometimes when we are afraid... afraid of what we don't know, afraid of what others will think, afraid of what will be found out about us. But every time we tell a lie, the thing that we fear grows stronger. It may take care of the present but it has no future.

I know I have a lot of shortcomings when it comes to honesty. I many times tried to avoid petty quarrels by diverting the truth into simple white lies. However, I conclude that whenever I am caught the small quarrel that I am avoiding turned our worse. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind as to care for his present situation, he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime. It's a crime then to lie.

So on our marriage, as much as possible on my best ability I try to tell the truth. When truth is divided, errors multiply. As human as we are, my husband commit the same mistake. He lied to me a few times. However, as we know that dishonestly breeds deceit , we try to avoid it as much as we could. I just wish I have the magic to read minds so I may know that He is totally honest with me. But I wish too that he would not have the same magic so I wouldn't be caught some times. LOL!

Remember honest heart, produces honest actions. An honest man is the noblest work of God. Dare to be honest , each time you are honest and conduct yourself with honesty, a success force will drive you toward greater success. Each time you lie, even with a little white lie, there are strong forces pushing you toward failure. So to make your marriage work let it be grounded with honesty.

My Precious Ones

My precious one, my tiny one, lay down your pretty head.
My dearest one my sleepy one, its time to go to bed

Just lie your head and give your cares to me.
Just close your eyes and fall into the sweetest dream,
cause in my loving arms

My precious one my darling one don't let your lashes weep.
My cherished one my weary one it's time to go to sleep.

Just lie your head and give your cares to me.
Just close your eyes and fall into the sweetest dream,
cause in my loving arms

You're safe as you will ever be so hush my dear and sleep.
And in your dreams you'll ride on angels' wings.
Dance with the stars and touch the face of God...
and if you should awake
I'll send you back to sleep.
