I’ve been inspired tonight to write about this video,   a video made by one of my friends at Facebook.  Fr. Louie Coronel, OP is the creator of the online site of Apostles Filipino Catholic Community.  Being one of the permanent admins is such a joy to me because in the process I am learning a lot aside from meeting lots of people from all walks of life who join the site to strengthen their faith and go back to their roots as Filipinos.

I cannot exactly describe how I felt watching  this video and listening to the wonderful affirmation of how God works in our lives.  It reminds me so much of the time I was in pain and struggling to overcome such realization that I was not hundred percent fit.  Those were the days when having someone to talk to  was such a joy to me because it somehow eased the pain of knowing that I was sick.  I cannot begin to fathom how I survived those days but one thing I know is that,  God gave me the strength to carry on, God gave me the shoulder to cry on,  God gave me the will to live again like nothing happened. I held on tight to the belief that He won’t  forsake me in those trying times of need, I  can honestly say that apart from the support of my family, my friends and my doctors, He  was there all the time, embracing me with His love.

The Lord will fill our emptiness

We offer to God all our pains

We humble ourselves and He will listen.

These lines touched me to the core.  Why is it that sometimes, we still doubt?   Why is it that sometimes we still don’t believe?  God’s love is immeasurable, God’s love is eternal.  It is only when we are at the lowest ebb of our lives that we begin to know that He is always there,  He has never left our side and He never will.
