Are You Ready?

Taiwan is bracing for not one, but two typhoons. Yesterday, the supermarkets were packed with people stocking up on vegetables and fruits. This is one of the reasons why I was unable to post.

The other reason is that I have been chatting with my very busy sister in the US. She told me that she can teach me how to dry and pack food. She travels a lot and does not like to eat out. She prepares her own food. That is how she kept slim and fit despite her stressful job.

This information is heaven sent, as Jimmy and I want to develop a more convenient program for weight management. The biggest challenge is how to get kids and adults alike, to eat vegetables three times a day. We have trained our boys to eat iceberg or Romaine lettuce, while we like to munch on celery. However, most of our clients can not copy this, as they want something cooked to start their day. I will be writing more on this in the coming days.

Anyway, back to the typhoon. Classes have been suspended, and people in landslide prone areas have been evacuated. Everyone is on high alert.

I can not help but wonder if we have the same readiness when it comes to eternal life. While going about our daily chores, do we often ponder on our eligibility to enter the Kingdom of God? Do we make time for God and ask for directions on how to lead our lives so that we may one day be with Him?

As imperfect creatures, it is but natural to gloss over these thoughts, and even to deny them. However, our mortality is an eventuality, and the sooner we face these issues, the better our chances for heaven will be.

So, join me now as we carve some quiet time alone with God. Despite our busyness, the most important One of all, is God.

Why???

The hour is near

So many say

Of the Lord’s coming

So come and hear

 

Christ Jesus died

For you and me

So we can forever be

With God for all eternity

 

Why do we need Him?

You sigh and ask

Are not good works

Enough for us?

 

Good works are good

But not enough

No one is perfect

Except our Lord

 

To gain entry

At the pearly gates

Jesus is our one-way ticket

To our heavenly home

 

So listen up

Dear brothers and sister

It’s not too late

Commit yourself

 

Repent of your sins

Accept Jesus Christ

As Lord and Savior

So we can be together, forever.

 

See you in heaven!!!

How do you define “SUCCESS?”

 

Many people equate wealth with success, while to others it means power. Some want financial freedom, while others value time freedom. Be that as it may, success in worldly terms is nothing compared to success in the afterlife.

What then is success in the afterlife? For me, it means only one thing. That is, living life with only one goal…getting closer to God, so that in the end, we will get our heavenly reward. Nothing else matters.

Most people like to work hard for earthly riches. In my book, the successful person is someone who accepts Jesus Christ as his/her Lord and Savior. This wise person knows that Jesus is the only Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one will go to the Father except through Jesus. As such, this person who strives for success in the afterlife will do anything and everything to get to heaven. How does he/she achieve this? By accepting Jesus and doing  good deeds to earn the riches of heaven.

Now, that is what I call, heavenly success!
