Lesson from our encounter with Ondoy's wrath

probably you would say this is another yet story told by someone who just experienced Ondoy's wrath to our country, but don't worry I'll just share few things I learned from that nightmare...

1. when flood enter even a little part of your property be alert and try to take some precautionary actions.
- meaning don't just stand MOVE.

2. when flood is inevitable, learn to sing and have a peaceful mind.
- I know this sound impossible but it is possible, before you sing and have peaceful mind a prayer would be great start. few moments past and flood came in our house but I manage to give praise and started to sing then thought of things to save in our house.

3. lets get back to basic - PRAY.
- like I told you prayer would be a great start. whether your going to start the day or a work or a task, our best weapon against enemy's plan is our prayer. His protection and guidance will get us through the day.

4. have joy in your heart.
- sounds impossible again? uh-uh this is totally possible. like what Jesus said in Matthew 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." with man it would be impossible but when God intervene anything can be achieve.

5. lastly - look in the brighter side of things.
- once you have joy, peace of mind and God's unfailing love, its not hard to look at things in brighter side or as others say it "Positive thinking". for example the flood we had instead of thinking it that way I thought of "a pool party of the whole subdivision" people around help out, enemies helped out, people who seems snob each other is now having conversation. all things happen to us has a purpose. another is instead of trash think of it as "alright my house will be spacious, time for new furniture and things".

in times of trouble or disaster we tend to think there is no hope, we think negatively, we even sometimes blame others or worst God for what happen, but as my neighbor say it (which i just over heard ^_^) "ayan kze hindi na kayo nagsisimba". I think its time for us to change our ways and repent for the sins we had made before and start a new. like the bible said in 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! let us abandon our old ways and start a new one through Christ.
