My Kitchen Prayer

God bless my little kitchen, I love it’s every nook. 

And bless me as I do my work, wash pots and pans and cook,

 And may the meals that I prepare be seasoned from above

with thy great blessing and thy grace.

But most of all they love,

so bless my little kitchen, God.

And those who enter in, may they find naught

but joy & peace

and happiness there.

 We are never alone no matter how we feel about it. When we feel we need an extra push and strength to get through, a prayer utter to God will get us through each day. God knows what’s in our hearts and would love to bless us by granting our hearts’ desires when we come to Him. Sometimes, in silence or in closed closet or simply utter out loud in special moment meeting up with Him.

Never be afraid to call on Him. He is just a step away. Turn to Him and find rest for your tired soul today. May you be truly blessed and  may you have a restful week ahead with Him in prayers.



Is Doing What’s Right Relevant Today?

A couple of days ago I saw a video posted by You tube challenging Facebook to do what is the right thing to do as an active  competitor with You tube. Now, here is the video you may want to watch. It’s called Help Stop Facebook Freebooting.

My question to everyone is: “Is it still relevant today to do what’s right?” This question posted to all our mega companies in the United States. In my post today, I would like to discuss this question and state my reasons why it is still relevant to do the right thing.


Making America Great

America is known in the world as ‘The Great Nation’. Really? Is it still relevant today? Imagine what’s that like for many mega companies and their staffs waking up to go to work each day, working hard to make a good living and bringing in incomes for their families and at the end of the day, feeling satisfied and return home with a good clear conscience with nothing to keep them awake in the middle of the night, trembling with fear. Isn’t that an awesome way to live? Can we say that is true all across mega companies in United States? If you would be honest with yourself, have you woken up in the middle of a night trembling with fear lately?

Next picture, have you gone to work a day and all you did was trying to find a loop-hole in our laws and try to get away from paying the penalty using the loop-hole to your advantage? You are most likely working as a lawyer in this case. I might be stereotyping.. I can hear all the lawyers protesting by now. But, seriously, are you in that place and you hate it so much? How is life treating you? Do you really want to live like this all your life? Life is good when you can sleep and not worry all the time. Does doing what is right bother you?

We can live and be competitive with a clear conscience.  Can we qualify ourselves as citizens of ‘The Great Nation’ if all we do are trying to live like one but not living up to its name? Why is doing what is right relevant today? Consider our great grand kids.. What kind of nation we want our grand kids to live in? What we do today has a great impact on our future generations. Everybody knows that.. Wait, take time to seriously think about it.  If we care so much for our environment, and our animals, why can’t we care about what we do to our next generation? What kind of legacy we want to pass down to our future generations? Empire is nice.. but meaningless! A family name that they are proud to own and pass down to their grand kids is the greatest legacy.

Why is doing right still relevant today? If doing the right thing no longer relevant, we can do away with our justice department. It’s irrelevant to uphold justice anyway, why bother? For show? Why bother? Keep the money for yourselves? Do we think seriously what we are doing and why we are doing any more? Is greed so important to you? Yes, everything we do for selfish reasons all stamp out of GREED! We want more!! We can live with more and with a clear conscience.

In conclusion, I would like to leave you with this thought. You think you can get away with a wrong, maybe you can, but don’t push it. One day all that you do, right or wrong will be out there for all to see. Will you be shamed or honored? That’s my question to you.

The Call Of Peter

Introduction To The Call Of Peter

As we all know from the early beginning of Peter’s life, he was called from a simple fisherman to one of the disciples closest to Jesus Christ. His early call as a disciple of Jesus Christ was well-known. Today, I would like to focus my attention on his later call in his life, from merely a disciple of Jesus to his journey as one that is life transforming as an apostle of Jesus Christ.

Do you recall the conversation that Peter had with Jesus, when He confronted him with this question three times. He asked Peter: “Do you love me?” Peter got surprised at the insistent tone Jesus used in that confrontation. I have to add that it was a loving moment though. It caught Peter off guard and emotional. Let us look at the conversation closely and see what actually happen.

The Bible says in John 21:15-18

15 When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”

“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”

16 Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”

He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”

17 The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”

Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me? He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Feed my sheep. 18 Very truly I tell you, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.”

One interesting point I noticed before was Jesus called him, Simon son of Jonah. ‘Simon’ was his original name and the name ‘Peter’ was given by Jesus. So, Jesus was actually addressing him by his original name.

A Moment Of Revelation

Early this week, David, my 2-year-old and I were down with a cough and we still do. One night, I was feeling chilled and weak. So, I had to separate myself from David so he would not get it. David had to sleep in his bed and he did not like that. He fought it hard that night. In a quiet moment, I asked David: “Do you love me?” And he said: “No!”. I asked him again, he said ‘no’. In my mind, I was going to say: “If you love me, listen to me.” I had to separate myself from him because I love him. I did it for his good. Yet, he could not understand that. Many times, I had to give him my hand and he would hold on tight to it to reassure him that I love him. Long story short, he got enough assurance that he fell asleep finally. Before he fell asleep, he told me he loved me. It was in that intimate moment I had with David that I realized how intimate that moment was when Jesus asked Peter: “Do you love me?” Through the Bible, God opened a window to show that intimate moment he had with Jesus.

What I learned

Jesus was trying to reassure Peter of his love for Him. Prior to this significant event, he denied Jesus three times. He was absolutely miserable that he did what he did. In fact, he went away and hid himself. Jesus used this precious moment to reassure Peter that he did love Him. And each time, Jesus told him what he must do. This was also that significant moment where Peter’s call to become an apostle, proclaiming Jesus all the rest of his life. Later, Holy Spirit empowered him to carry out his life task at the upper room while praying. The Holy Spirit came upon him and gave him the power to fulfill his life long task mentioned in Acts 2:2-5.

Sometimes, at a quiet moment, God reveals His revelation to us and that helps us appreciate His Word and Him better. Some things we have to go through to learn and understand His revelations in our lives. And when they happen, we grow stronger and much more appreciative of who He is and what He is doing in  our lives.

The call of Peter could be yours  because if he who was a fisherman gave his life to answer that call, what then would you do if you are Peter? He died, hanged on the cross upside down. Would you answer that call?
