Prayer answered

Smiles Gifs Images In a life full of people surrounding you in your work place, in a shopping mall, in a family gatherings, at public palces or at home, have you ever feel "abandon" or "alone"? I believe everyone had that feeling at least once in their life. No matter how popular or famous you are, or how successfully accomplished your life is, there exist that time of your life where everything shuts out from you, and you feel that you are being left alone by yourself with no one worthy to offer you any comfort that can 'cure' your inner sickness which you suddently felt that way. It's a period of void and varse darkness. Sometimes you do not know what's the cause of all this discomfort you are feeling. Could it possibly be your ranting of ownself because you think you could have done much better while everyone thinks you did great? Could it be your own measure of perfection which are unrealistic that you are trying to impose on yourself or others? Or could it be even not your fault at all because it's your raging hormon level that makes you have an unstable state of mind? Whatever it may be, the best solution to it is to put everything in prayer.

You may be surprised on what a simple thing as a prayer could do. Best still, you will unknowingly realise that your prayer had made changes to your life. Hence, you have already forgotten what is it that had put you through those darkness and lonely feelings you had earlier on. I, myself had experience that of prayers being answered at some point in my life. But just how ungrateful human mind could be, I have forgotten most of it. We all do tend to forget the good things but easily remembered the bad things. This shouldn't be the case if we want to live a happy fruitful life. I personally thinks prayer is the best solution to every problem because we, as human are not perfect. We do not have the right wisdom or the perfect state of mind where we can truly see whatever danger or possible success a head of us. We got to rely on an upper hand to guide and lead us. The best guidance and problem solver that ever live is I believe, is still God the creator.

A few days ago, someone I knew for 5 years just asked me what is the thing that is the most unpleasant about me. Without hesitation, I said my bad temper. And that person ask again "really"? Without hesitation again, I said "yes". We paused for a moment, and that person said "Yeah, you were. Last time when we first known each other, we really gets on each other nerves with your bad temper." I said back, "Well, you are bad tempered too. That's why I was bad tempered to you!" My quick denial... something I should work on changing too. We all have to change it. Anyway, my point is, my bad temper has somehow gone but not completely I think. But it is anyhow very much better than what I was back then. This, I only realise when someone else pointed it out for me, saying that I am a very much better person now, not with my bad temperamental attitude where I used to be. And I started thinking how did I managed to change whereas I had tried countless times but failed in my past. I realised that my bad temper had couses me and other many unpleasant moments and created many other problems in my life. I've got to change it for good. The answer is in my prayer that I had not long ago. I was sincerely praying that God will take away my 'illness' that is aching in my soul so that I could be a better person in His sight. Now I once realise again that my prayer had been answered. I truly thank Him for his unfailing love and He is the only one who does not abandon me when I was in darkness.

Ask, Seek, Knock

7"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door
will be opened to you. 8For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and
to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
Matthew 7:7-8
