Law of Attraction

Law of Attraction-
There are many who are starting to get attracted to the Law of Attraction. With the top rating multi-million sales of the Secret and the many Self- help seminars like the Landmark Forum. I want to share my experience regarding this.

Here's a quote from...
Abraham: You did not come into this environment to create through action. Instead, your action is meant to be a way in which you enjoy what you have created through thought.
Esther Hicks

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he..proverbs 23:7

Ever since I remember I have always wanted a perfect life and I strive for perfection. I looked inside me and tried to change my heart from within.. I even attended self-help seminars and bought so many books. But my longing was deep.. so deep that people, knowledge and philosophies, etc cannot fill..

So I got outside help to fill the gap.. relationships, alcohol and even drugs to dull the deep need for significance and purpose. I just wanted to be happy. This was a ten year search until I was exhausted and drained.

During my time of searching my brother was a new convert to Christianity. I hated him because he used to be one of me… we were friends and we would always be together in our exploits of searching for significance. To cut the long story short he stopped hanging out with me.. and started sharing how he was changed by Jesus!

It was so horrid because it was so simple!!! My mind was rebelling to the overly simplified answer to the longing of perfection and freedom. My initial reaction to his ”new found” faith was to persecute him until he becomes so angry that the Jesus in his life will be quenched or sucked out of him..hehe. I used to be an expert on “picking on people.”

Six months has passed he still was standing strong in his faith (i failed). One night while I was feeling severely lonely, desperate and depressed I cried out to God and confessed that everything was my fault and my life was the result of all my thoughts and actions I needed Him to divinely intervene as I surrendered to Him. After I cried out to Him, He actually answered back!!! A voice told me “go to your brother’s church” so I went the Sunday of the week.
Attending my brother’s church did not change me, listening to the music and the preaching did not also change me. My heart was burning in the presence of the Lord while the words and songs pierced my heart. Jesus drew me to Himself that day and I totally surrendered to whatever He wants me to do. . that changed me by letting Him do the changing!

Jeremiah 29:11For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
Psalm 1
1BLESSED (HAPPY, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.
2But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.
3And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].

I use the bible as my life manual on how to think and dream.. to attract God’s thoughts and laws in my heart. I meditate on it and apply it. It’s been 12 years and I’m still learning and growing in my relationship with Jesus. He saved me and cleaned me up, from inside (thoughts, emotions and desires) to looks and actions.

My last thought on this..
I can gain the whole world with my own thoughts and dreams but what “eternal importance” will it have? I will loose my soul in gaining all “things” apart from God.

you drew my attention to this one word you used several times as if it were THE attraction to your blog entry... the word -- perfection.

sis, i can really say that God desires to perfect His 'object of affection' (that's you) more than anything else. i see it in you. your love is ever growing, while sadly those of some i know are ever waning. i want that which you have too =)... for "He who began a good work in (us) will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus." =)

Luis L. Pantoja Jr. THD

I went to a memorial service for Pasto Luis Pantoja a commemorative Prayer meeting hosted by GCF-Peel. It was a touching event for I only met Pastor Luis once here in Canada during a church picnic last month. Its a pity I did not get to talk to him.

In the prayer meeting I heard so many funny, meaningful stories about this great man. A man greatly loved and for he loved much.

Epitaph for his cremated remains: "A handful of ashes now vaulted in this corner, with nothing to boast but grace from his maker"

I happen to read his Limericks..

Limericks on my life

Limericks are short verses generally but not always funny. Here are some about my career

Once on fire, in a suit and tie
By the hand of God and the will of man

Now he's fired, in sackcloth retired
By the hand of man and the will of God

The Lord has given, He has taken away
I tread the path, He leads the way

Flip the new page, blank with no stain
God in my old ag…
