A MIRACLE

For the past 12 months, i’ve experienced changes in my life.
I carried a life inside me which deformed my body.
For months, i feel weak and detached to people and foods that I am accustomed to.
I undergone work pressure.
I was criticized at work.
I felt pain.. extreme pain of labor
then, I went under the knife for C-section.my life was on the line.
I had no sleep.
I have to leave work.
My career ended.
Again, I was criticized for my choice.
I saw my husband single-handedly taking responsibility of our bills.
I never complain… never.. not even once.
Why??
Because I will always choose to undergo all of this again  JUST TO BE “WITH” MY LITTLE ANGEL.

There is NOTHING TO COMPLAIN at all.
You NEVER COMPLAIN WHEN YOU ARE GIVEN A MIRACLE.

Let’s deviate from our usual fitness article and give way to an important event that could help us improve quality of life in the Philippines.  As a Young Adult, I can say that i am still part of the YOUTH today. Youth today are very well aware of what’s happening in their surroundings, and being observant on what’s happening in their community, WE know that Youths are only waiting for their chance to voice out their opinions and ideas on how to help our nation.

Unilab, knowing that YOUTH are the most important people in our community today, have come up with a Program that gives chance to our future leaders to voice out their ideas and be heard. Now on it’s 3rd year, UNILAB IDEAS POSITIVE 2012 once again is inviting college students to ignite their brilliant minds and work as a group, share their innovative, exciting and sustainable ideas to address the health and wellness concerns of the Philippines, transforming it to a  better nation.

  • Hygiene and Sanitation

  • Environment Care and Protection

What is at stake:

A total of fifteen (15) student groups will be chosen to implement their social marketing plans.

“The youth is the hope of our future.”- Dr. Jose P. Rizal 

Father in heaven, you are the absolute Sovereign over the shaking of the earth, the rising of the sea, and the raging of the waves. We tremble at your power and bow before your unsearchable judgments and inscrutable ways. We cover our faces and kiss your omnipotent hand. We fall helpless to the floor in prayer and feel how fragile the very ground is beneath our knees.

O God, we humble ourselves under your holy majesty and repent. In a moment—in the twinkling of an eye—we too could be swept away. We are not more deserving of firm ground than our fellowmen in Japan. We too are flesh. We have bodies and homes and cars and family and precious places. We know that if we were treated according to our sins, who could stand? All of it would be gone in a moment. So in this dark hour we turn against our sins, not against you.

And we cry for mercy for Japan. Mercy, Father. Not for what they or we deserve. But mercy.

Have you not encouraged us in this? Have we not heard a hundred times in your Word the riches of your kindness, forbearance, and patience? Do you not a thousand times withhold your judgments, leading your rebellious world toward repentance? Yes, Lord. For your ways are not our ways, and your thoughts are not our thoughts.

Grant, O God, that the wicked will forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts. Grant us, your sinful creatures, to return to you, that you may have compassion. For surely you will abundantly pardon. Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord Jesus, your beloved Son, will be saved.

May every heart-breaking loss—millions upon millions of losses—be healed by the wounded hands of the risen Christ. You are not unacquainted with your creatures’ pain. You did not spare your own Son, but gave him up for us all.

In Jesus you tasted loss. In Jesus you shared the overwhelming flood of our sorrows and suffering. In Jesus you are a sympathetic Priest in the midst of our pain.

Deal tenderly now, Father, with this fragile people. Woo them. Win them. Save them.

And may the floods they so much dread make blessings break upon their head.

O let them not judge you with feeble sense, but trust you for your grace. And so behind this providence, soon find a smiling face.

In Jesus’ merciful name, Amen.
