Pleading Puppy Eyes (Psalm 6:9)

The Lord has heard my plea;
    the Lord accepts my prayer.

A cute little kid asks her parents to buy her a toy.Uh oh!

That cute little kid asking for a toy now uses her pleading puppy eyes. Double uh oh!

Then the cute little kid asking for a toy, wearing puppy dog eyes suddenly shed tears on both eyes! Major uh Oh!

Dramatic little child!


Now tell me, if you were one of the parents of that child wouldn’t you hear her plea? Would you just ignore her? I bet whatever your child says, may it be a request or a complaint, you will pay attention. How much more when she started to weep? It breaks anyone’s heart to see a cute child cry.

If our biological father hears every request we made, the more does our Father who made Heaven and Earth! Mind you, God is watching us every hour, every minute, every second. To Him, every word we utter is stocked in his mind. Those tears we shed can’t escape His eyes. Nothing can be hidden from him so we can cry our hearts out and He’ll never feel irritated about it.

Never cease praying. Our God never ignores shameless perseverance.

Against the Flow (Psalm 5:12)

For you bless the righteous, O Lord;
    you cover him with favor as with a shield.


In this wicked world, it is hard to pinpoint one who is living a righteous life. Crimes are everywhere. Bad things became so rampant that it is normal for us to hear almost all reports in the television about such. Unusual the day is when reports about a man returning back a bag full of money owned by a diplomat or elite flashed into the TV screen. More and more people age up having selfish ambitions in mind. With this, YOU and I must dare to go against the flow.

When we surrendered our lives to God and accepted Christ as our Lord and Savior, we become new creations and were commanded to walk in Spirit. We allow ourselves to be called Christians. We carry Christ’s name and that for a fact would mean that we reflect Christ. We should act like Him and love like Him. Therefore, we should act righteously. Choose what is right in the eyes of God. Don’t follow the bad fad. Don’t be deceived by what this world teaches. Don’t let yourself be taken by the evil’s current. Great things await those who act uprightly. What goes around comes back around. Do good and our loving Father will reward and bless us more than what we can expect. He will cover us always with His precious blood that will shield us from all works of Satan.
