God Provides

If you just read the Bible in Mt. 6:25-34, Jesus there answers us that God indeed provides for our needs, and cares for us. If He takes care of such animals as the birds of the air or even the beautiful flowering plants in the fields, Jesus assures us, saying “How much more will God care for you, human creatures created with an intelligent and an eternal soul?” The important thing is to keep up our faith and trust in God, since He does not leave our prayers unanswered.

God is certainly grateful. The more we trust in Him, the more He cares for us. But certainly He allows trials in our lives as He did in His own Son Jesus, since trials and sufferings have a cleansing effect in our lives and souls. (see Mt. 16:24-28; Lk. 9:28-36).

Graduation Tears

When we attend graduations we sometimes experience tears of joy because of many memories that light up the corners of our mind. Maybe we are reminded of our own graduations, the love and sacrifice of our parents, and the many years of toil and effort. Maybe then we realize the truth of the saying: no pain no gain, no cross no victor

But really it’s the love that was behind it all that touches our emotion as we see those loving parents shedding tears of joy at graduation time of their children. Then we remember that once upon a time our own parents did sacrifice and dream for our own success and achievement at graduation time. We pray for those loved ones, God reward them!
