Proverbs 11:8

The righteous person is rescued from trouble,

    and it falls on the wicked instead.
New International Version (NIV)

Kawikaan 11:8 (Tagalog) Magandang Balita Biblia (TPV)
Ang matuwid ay inilalayo sa bagabag, ngunit ang masama ay doon bumabagsak.

Oh, I in trouble or what?
I woke up very early in the morning to find my self troubled with what we are going to have this day…with nearly a few hundred pesos in my purse… I nearly cry thinking how could we ever survive this?
Two months ago, I let my husband leave his job. He had been finally tired of the work that he had been doing for 23 long years. He tried all his best to explain himself and convince every one in the family why he should leave his job.

Placing Our Hopes To GOD

Proverbs 11:7

Hopes placed in mortals die with them;
    all the promise of[a] their power comes to nothing.
New International Version (NIV)

Kawikaan 11:7 (Tagalog) Magandang Balita Biblia (TPV)
Ang pag-asa ng masama ay kasama niyang pumapanaw, ang umasa sa kayamanan ay mawawalang kabuluhan.


After the hospital visit we managed to reach the church early. Seated at the second to the last row, I was thinking how money had great effect in our lives after seeing a mother’s peace of mind and contentment. Her dream for her son had finally come true. Her son finally was able to support them and his family. Mother had placed her hopes with his son. I just prayed that she would be thankful to God for such blessing of peace of mind through him.

While in this state, my eyes was looking at the church youth practicing their part on praise and worship when a church worker approached me and had managed to sell two sachet organic coffee which I do not intend to use but bought it because of the sympathy I had for him. I know he needs money badly too and had been placing his hope for survival with God. I do not have much but is willing to share a little. He lived a very basic and simple life but a smile would never go out of his face. Often times in his testimony, he would say God had never failed him.

He and another church worker asked me to give an inspirational song before the message of the night was given. I also give in to that. Totally unprepared, my heart prepared the song for me and before I was able to sing the song the church Pastor announced the need for the church electrical wiring replacements and my brother in Christ – Steven gave a testimony being under a great challenge in life at the moment then I knew right then and there why my heart chose the song.

Great is Thy faithfulness, Oh, God my Father.
There is no shadow of turning with Thee.
Thou changes not Thy compassion they failed not.
To Thy great faithfulness, Lord unto me.

Great is Thy faithfulness, Great is Thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed, Thy hand had provided
Great is Thy faithfulness Lord unto me.

Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witnessed
To thy great faithfulness mercy and love

Great is Thy faithfulness, Great is Thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed, Thy hand had provided
Great is Thy faithfulness Lord unto me.

Parson for sin and peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence Lord to cheer and to guide
Strength for today and bright hopes for tomorrow
Blessings all mine with ten thousands beside

Great is Thy faithfulness, Great is Thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new grace I see
All I have needed Thou hast provided
Great is thy faithfulness, Lord unto me.

In every aspect of nowadays life, Money has a great involvement… may it be personal, family, church and others. But there is a realization on one aspect that money cannot provide, the ability to move on with our lives when we place our HOPES to GOD.
