I Stand by His Grace

I have heard various accusations that plagued me.

I take intermittent steps back and review my life and, more importantly, the motives of my heart for every move I make.  The cull of leadership is not easy;  neither are the pioneering efforts demanded of me before as school administrator and talent manager and now as a human resource manager.  Many times, the trek can be lonely and only those who fly in similar worlds with the same altitude grasp the dynamics of what I go through.

I have learned that I am not so important as to be able to control people or take advantage of them, as some are inclined to think.  I churn my job knowing that, if I do less, others who take the trek with me will slide down.

I have learned that, in this tough business, one can't fake the preaching without the life that backs it up.  Often, the backing up is not seen by the public eye, and it doesn't matter.

I have learned that I bark loudly not because I am better, but, precisely because I've been down on the ground probably more than most.  In that, there is no room for self-righteousness.

I have learned that my attention span is too short to be capable of the machinations of spiritual manipulation because everything I breathe goes against that very grain.  I speak the truth, sometimes straight out, because the deception and lying found in everyday life are just so distasteful that the specks of truth blurted out need to find their voices against the noise of propaganda called "denial".

No one likes accusations, but, if they be part of this trek, I thank my God for permitting them because they keep my feet on the ground.  I am thankful for real friends who hold the ropes with me and those who have gone this path ahead of me who serve as examples of how to stand, even alone.

Nope, the trek ain't easy.  But, I stand.  By His grace, that's a promise.

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 p…

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…
