What doors have God opened for me today?

August 1st, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Reminder to ask myself daily: What doors have God opened for me today? There is always a brighter path, planned by God, awaiting for me to discover. See those paths and walk those paths.

“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”
~Alexander Grapham Bell

To Believe, Just Believe

Tonight my elder brother shared a story with me. On his 25th birthday he celebrate with over 30 to 40 friends. They all took turns to wish and cheer him with drinks an so he drank and got drunk . After he arrived home, alone in his apartment, depression and loneliness took over him. Everything spiral downwards. He was emotional and physically miserable. He hated this feeling and thought to himself, “Why did I drink? I don’t like alcohol. What was all the drinking for? Not for myself… but for the enjoyment of others.”

He swore not to drink alcohol again and he would only do things that made himself happy. By this time it was 5am, to brush off these feelings he decide to go for a morning drive. As he drove, he noticed the sign in front of the church had changed. With the sunrise peeking from behind, the sign read, “To Believe, Just Believe”. At that moment epiphany hit him. “To be Happy, Just be Happy”, “To Love, Just Love” This can be applied to life in many ways, it was all that simple.

I am very touched knowing that God had answered my prayers. He was watching over and taking care of him. After all these years of being alone he has turn out to be a very good, strong, and kind man. I am not as strong as him and have many doubts if I will ever be, but I will not give up. I will always strive to better myself daily. Yet my brothers says,

 “To Believe, Just Believe. If you truly understand something you will not need to try, you will know how to apply it without difficulty in all things. It’s as simple as that.”

I guess I don’t get it yet… I guess I will know when I don’t have to try… So simple yet so deep…

知彼知己,百戰不殆;不知彼而知己,一勝一負;不知彼,不知己,每戰必殆

It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.

~ Art of War, Ch. 3, the last sentence, by Sun Tzu
