I Gained Wisdom From My Wisdom Tooth

It’s really funny and amazing how God speaks to us differently and in many ways! To the point that even to my wisdom tooth, He is reminding me that He is at work. Tonight, I gained wisdom form my wisdom tooth.

My wisdom tooth is actually erupting towards the right direction, seems no problem but still, it hurts. It hurts to the point that I took 1 pain reliever and I used the Lido-Jel (Topical Anesthetic Gel) And sometimes it is the same with our Christian life…

Have you ever asked God this question: “Lord, why am I experiencing this pain if I am obeying You? If I am walking in Your will? If I’m really walking towards the right direction as You said so?” 

It’s funny how serious I was with all the tears in my eyes *insert dramatic music*  while asking those question to Him and He answered me through the wisdom tooth. It’s not that He doesn’t take me seriously but He answered the way I would understand His plan. He speaks to us the way He knows it best because we can never think the way He thinks. ( See Isiah 55:8 )

Here’s the wisdom/ reflection from the awesome tooth: 

  1. PAIN – represents PROCESS. We can never experience the fullness of success without the process. Pain HELPS us to understand the value of the price and BUILD us UP to be prepared for what is about to come.
  2. WISDOM TOOTH – represents GOD’S PROMISES in our lives. It could be your desires, prayers, dreams or calling in life. The tooth doesn’t come out over-night. It is a long and painful process before we can really see it. It is growing.  And in order for us to see and experience it’s fullness we need:
  • Patience– We need patience as we wait for it to grow. Until we can experience its fullness without any hindrance. ( See Proverbs 10:22 )
  • EnduranceSome people chooses to under-go a surgery in order to lessen the pain but after that operation, the tooth will be removed from its place and no matter how bad you want to have it back, the dentist couldn’t perform any miracle for you. Sometimes,we (yes, I am included!) Christians, just want the promises of God and skip the process. Not knowingly that skipping the process could also means missing the blessing. 

(Some blessings are just offered for a specific season in our life but we’ll never know how God could work, He does things beyond how we think. Beyond what we can do. #Grace ) 

You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. – Hebrews 10:36 NIV
3. RIGHT ERUPTION/ POSITION  – Sometimes crazy things like “Lord, if I am walking in Your will and I am doing the right thing, how come those people who are doing things that are not pleasing in Your eyes seems to succeed more? ” comes in my mind but God’s answer is simple…
“But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.” – 1 Peter 3:14
It has been a year or so when my wisdom tooth started to erupt. My sister is actually a Dentist which means I have an option for it to be removed but I didn’t. Why? because the fact that it is painful it means it is actually growing. WHEN THERE IS PAIN, THERE IS GROWTH. Why would I stop something that is RIGHT? Just like with our OBEDIENCE and TOTAL SURRENDER to GOD’S SOVEREIGNTY it could be painful and tiring at times but it is WORTHWHILE. If wisdom tooth completes the set of teeth, our OBEDIENCE and TOTAL SURRENDER in good or in bad times, completes our greatest calling- to give glory to God the most.

Kaya ko pa ba?

Isang tanong ang pauli-ulit kong tinatanong sa sarili ko tuwing gabi, “Kaya ko pa ba?”

Sa iba’t ibang bagay na nangyayari ngayun sa buhay mo, kaya mo pa nga kaya? Kaya mo pa kayang harapin ang bukas ng walang takot o pangamba? May iba’t ibang rason kung bakit na itatanong natin ang katagang “Kaya ko pa ba?” hindi man lahat pero ito ang iba: 

  • Namatayan ka– Minsan tao, minsan puso mo.(biro lang!)
  • Problema sa pera – Kulang o ‘di naman kaya’y kapos
  • Trabaho – Hindi mo gusto yung trabaho mo o ‘di mo lang talaga gusto yung pagpapalakad ng boss mo.
  • Pag-aaral – Mahirap dahil sobrang dami mo nangang kaylangang ipasa at aaralin, kapos ka pa pang bayad ng matrikula.
  • Pamilya – minsan sa sobrang gulo hindi mo narin alam kung pamilya pa ba talaga.
  • Sakit – yung nainom mo na lahat ng gamot, wala pading epekto.
  • Pag-ibig – minsan mo nangalang ibigay ang puso mo, napaglaruan pa. (Ga’no kadalas ang minsan mo? Biro lang!)
  • Hindi mo alam – hindi mo alam kung anung problema pero pakiramdam mo meron.

‘Gaya ng sabi ‘ko kanina, hindi lahat ay mailalagay ko, ayoko ng problemahin kung paano ko ‘yun malalagay lahat dahil ‘di naman ako Diyos. Maaring napasama sa listahan na ginawa ko ‘yung problemang pinagdadaanan mo, maaring hindi. Pero ano nga bang sagot sa tanong na “Kaya ko pa ba?”

Nagdadasal ako sa banyo nung nakuha ko ang sagot sa tanong na ‘yan. Oo, sa banyo. Kasi dun lang yung tahimk at lugar kung saan ako lang mag-isa. Hindi lang naman kasi sa simbahan lang pwede mag dasal, kahit saan naman kasi andyan si Lord. Sabi ko pa “Lord, kaya ko pa ba? Kaya ko pa ba?” At naalala ko ito:

2 Corinthians 12:9-10
9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Nakalimutan ko na hindi ko nga pala laban ‘to. Simula nung sinuko ko ang buhay ko kay Lord, lahat ng laban ko ay sa Kanya na. At sa pinakamahinang parte ng buhay ko, ‘dun ko pinaka makikita ang lakas Niya. Para sa akin nga pala Siya at hindi nagbabago’yun kahit magbago man ang sitwasyon at emosyon ko.

Ang sagot pala sa tanong ko ay simple lang pero importanteng wag nating makalimutan, Kung lahat posible sa Kanya, at Siya ang pinagkukuhaan mo ng lakas… Kakayanin mo. Oo, kakayanin mo kahit ano pa man iyan dahil hindi nangiiwan sa ere si Lord. Ipaglalaban at sasamahan ka Niya hanggang huli. Kakayanin mo dahil para Siya sa’yo. Continue reading “Kaya ko pa ba?”

No filter selfie
No lipstick to make my lips red
No bangs to cover my forehead
No powder to cover my oily face
No cover to my big cheeks cuz of ponytail

Why am I posting this?

Ladies, God created you uniquely and beautifully. He is a perfect God and He made no mistake when He created you. I’m not against of using cosmetics or any beautification (nothing wrong with that) but I’m against low self esteem. Do not pattern yourself on the worldly standard of “beauty ” you are created by God and He sees you this way: (The bridegroom to His bride) 

How beautiful you are,my darling! Oh, how beautiful! You are altogether beautiful,my darling; there is no flaw in you.- Song of Songs 4:1;7

If you are struggling to love yourself, ask God to teach you on how to love you the way He does. Because before He formed you in your mother’s womb, He already knows and loves you.Always remember that you are beautiful in many ways! You are loved! You are enough!

P.s Appreciate the beautiful ladies you know, they might need a little reminder on how precious they are!
