Trust me, this is going to be a quick post.
A lot of things happened this year to our dear country. I’m muddled to admit that I remember the bad stuff more than the good ones. Take Typhoon Maring, the Napoles scandal, the collision of 2 ferry lines causing numerous death, elections, the change of BIR receipts, and so much more that you’d probably shut down the computer in disgust! (Being my good reader, you wouldn’t do that, would you?)
Our country has always been associated with corruption a lot of times. In this mess, President Aquino and His team must have numerous “head-splitting” migraines made by past floundering officials! With these situations at hand, mere citizens like us can’t do anything but rally, rally, and rally! And for those who just can’t take it, do things they regret later on! These can’t solve much because we aren’t in authority to change the law for the good of the country.
The Philippines is known as a Christian country and every Filipino knows that when we are in chaos, we call on GOD who holds our country in His hands. He knows all the malice and the good that’s going on in every nook and cranny. It doesn’t hurt to call on Him who cares not just for our personal needs, but the needs of our country as well. There are a lot of people who do more evil than good. That’s probably because they have the wrong perception of HIM as a divine dictator when in fact, He is a merciful yet just God!
Repentance is key, and not just through our lips, but through our actions!
I’m not knowledgeable about the whole political aspect of the republic of the Philippines and all its operations. What I do know is that if we want to see change in our country, it starts with prayer! I hope we take time (me included) to pray for peace and for a better economy and government operations! I’m sure God would answer in His time!
