God’s Love

Early this year, I found these verses in the Bible.

Philippians 4: 4-9

4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.
9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me–put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

I pray. I try to pray as often as I can- whenever I need to talk to Him. However, I have to admit there are nights when I just sleep without saying my prayers.  I am the kind of person who fervently prays to God when deeply troubled yet forgets to regularly pray when life is sweet. I am human. I am a sinner. Yet when I am feeling low, God is always there for me.

Over the weekend, I was feeling terrible. There were things I wanted to get done that did not get done. There were things that I wanted to happen that did not happen. These were simple things yet it felt like a heartbreak even if I did not know what a heartbreak feels like. I was emotional yet I kept a straight face. Then I remembered those verses. I prayed. I convinced myself that my worries will end for God knows what is in my heart. I still slept with worries but with some ray of hope.

Then something magical happened. I got things done today and I felt God’s hands in my life as I received some good news. There is really nothing to worry about.

  1. Oh, Kat, I’m happy you’re feeling a lot better now! I won’t pretend I know what your problem is or how you’re feeling, but I sincerely pray your circumstance draws you closer to God.

    PS: That’s my rhema verse, too! I wrote about it a few days ago; Job sent the verse to me out of the blue and it perfectly fit my situation. God knows us! 😀

    • Hi, Maan. Thanks for your concern. I think I have read those verses in one of your posts, too! I am doing fine. It was just one of those days that I felt lonely. I missed a lot of people, I guess. I had so many things to do. Emo lang. God is great, indeed!

  2. I’m glad to know that your worries are now over and it is truly amazing when our prayers have been answered. And the verses you were reflecting on are my favorite too! 🙂

    • Sometimes, I just overthink. It was not much of worry. A lot of my concerns were just created in my head. Nevertheless, God is great!

      • I think overthinking and trying to know the many whys is sometimes unhealthy. But learning to trust God and His promises is something else and it is through this act that we attain peace of mind. 🙂

  3. Its frustrating sometimes when things just doesn’t go our way. I always lean to prayer to keep piece of mind. Thank you for sharing this awesome verse, I’m glad that you feel a lot better now. Just keep on praying darating din tayo dyan.

  4. God is Great All the Time Kat! Glad to hear you are doing great now! Don’t worry too much, because as the verse said everything is part of His Divine plan.

  5. Love your message. I too believe that GOD does answer your prayers and that we should talk to him more often an even throughout the day if possible. I too sometimes forget to talk to him.

  6. I love this line “8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.

    thank you for sharing sis! 🙂

  7. God is always there for us no matter what, Every time I feel low or down I always pray and It makes me feel better afterwards. Thank you for sharing this wonderful message, Sis:)

  8. If there’s one important thing I have learned through the years, that is to trust God that everything happens or not happen for a reason. I always entrust everything on Him everytime I pray for I know, He’ knows better than I do. I am glad you are doing fine now, this shall pass sis.

  9. There are times that we feel very depressed but unexpectedly we receive a very good news. That is how God gave us miracles even in a very small things.
    Just like last year we have a slight problem financially and unexpectedly, we receive a blessing just in time we need it and we are very thankful for it.

  10. It’s really important to constantly talk to GOD especially nowadays when there is so much chaos and destruction in our world. Only GOD can see us through these difficult times.

  11. True. I am the same as you. Sometimes, I feel like I am only talking to Him when I’m in dire need and forget Him in times of triumph. I am always sorry whenever i think about it but I unconsciously repeat this. God still loves me even though I am a sinner. We need to be constantly reminded to thank Him ALWAYS.

  12. There are reasons why things doesn’t happen as planned. and I believe that it’s a reminder to us that no matter how strong or smart we may be, one can do nothing without Him.

  13. How are you Kat? I hope you are doing well. 🙂

  14. It is frustrating when we don’t get our way but when we trust God, we can always see that all things come together according to His plan and we see something really good. Praise God. Kat, I’m glad that you’re seeing God at work in your life.
