Blogging Lesson: Blogging Takes Time

So true. I have two blogs maintained now, one is 4 years old and the other one is 2 years old. If Multiply did not die, I would have a 6-7 year old blog now (and made big money out of it. Too bad they went from social networking to online marketing and failed badly). Blogging may sound easy but it takes time, effort, and dedication. You cannot make a post or two then expect audience to flock to it. #patience

No Man is Too Bad for God

No man is too bad for God.
Cast of Characters: Lost & Found, Max Lucado

But even a traitor may mend. I have known one that did.
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Horse and His Boy, C.S. Lewis

Jacob was a traitor, yet he faced his past and wrestled with God to gain forgiveness. He was given a new name, became a father to a great nation that even the present world knows – Israel. It is just so mindblowing to know what God can do to each of us. He can pick us up from the mire and set us on golden pedestals. If we just seek Him.

Edmund Pevensie betrayed his siblings (and Narnia and Aslan) over the Ice Queen’s promise of Turkish Delight. But he has seen the error of his ways, suffered the consequences, and gained forgiveness. If we have experienced forgiveness and second chances, then we can also give it, albeit there are instances wherein it is just hard to do so, human as we are. As we wrestled our way to gain forgiveness from those we have done wrong, I think we should also wrestle with these thoughts and bitter feelings that hinders us to offer forgiveness.

Project Gratitude: An Opportunity

I have always wanted to do this (and finish it in the course, but meh.) Every day is a miracle, they say, and during the 24 hours, I know it is impossible to not have something to be thankful for. So I am to start this Project Gratitude. Every day I am going to post something I am thankful for. I want to be reminded of God’s graciousness and faithfulness every day, and with every little blessing that I receive, I hope I would be a blessing to the people around me in return.

So here goes!

1. An opportunity.  #projectgratitude
