“Tell us, then, what is your opinion: Is it lawful to pay the census tax to Caesar or not?”
- Matthew 22:17

Like Jesus in today’s gospel, we have moments in our life wherein we are place in a predicament. It is an inevitable part of our daily life that we must face courageously. And in today’s gospel, Jesus would like to remind us to choose wisely and to act courageously on the consequence of that choice. 

We have the freedom to choose but we are not free to the consequence of that choice. Choosing the wrong thing will lead you to more difficult predicament while choosing nothing will lead you nowhere. 

Father, grant us your grace to choose what You want for our lives. Give us Your wisdom and strength whenever we are caught in a predicament in our life. Amen.

Lust is violent, love is gentle. Lust is cowardly, love is courageous. Lust enslaves, love liberates.

Waiting for God’s Best By Rebecca St. James
I’m often asked how I remain patient with God’s plan for my life when I’m still single. I’ve talked so much about it, it’s no secret—eventually I want to get married. The truth is that there have been many moments when I’ve been tired of waiting for the right guy to arrive. My mum challenged me once. “You need to let go and trust God with this,” she said. I started tearing up. She was right. I asked, “How do you let go of something so important?”
Relinquishing this to God has been quite a process, but I don’t want anything for myself that God doesn’t want for me. Where are the joy and abundant life in settling for something that He doesn’t desire for my life? Releasing this was incredibly freeing. I still believe God will grant me this desire, but I will trust God either way. Until you come to that place of abandonment, the grass always looks greener on the other side. If you can’t surrender something of such importance, the danger is that when it comes you will cling to it and suffocate it, and you may end up hurting the very thing you have longed for. I now feel that I will be able to go into marriage as a whole person. A better prayer than “God, when will You bring the special guy into my life?” is “God, I don’t know what You have in mind for my future … but I await whatever it is expectantly, knowing that You know me better than I even know myself.” I don’t want any less than what God has in mind. I want the best that He has in mind.

AMEN!!!

This is my favorite verse from the book of Job. This is Job’s response to God. A response that reminds me to be like Job, steadfast in his faith to God amidst the pain, trials and sufferings. 

Lord, I may not understand Your plans but I will be firm in my faith. I will continue to trust You knowing that what you are doing is nothing but for the best of me. Amen.

Ladies, let go of what you can’t change.

If he can’t open a door for you; If he can’t reply to your texts; If he can’t keep his word; If he can’t make a conversation lasts; If he can’t be sincerely honest with you and all other else that he can’t be when his with you, chances are he will never be the guy you wanted him to be because you can’t change him. 

Only God can change him. You are only limited to accepting him for what he is. So if you think those little things won’t pass your non-negotiables, let go. Let go of what you can’t change.
