Over and Over Again! (051812)

(An entry from my notebook.)

What is a lot important? Our heartache or God’s heartache? Instantly, we might say, “Of course, God’s heartache is more important than mine.” But let me tell you this, sometimes we’re just lying because actions speak louder than words. We have the tendency to over-react when we are hurt and not knowing that we give more importance to our feelings than God’s.

Minsan kasi, we just focus on our loss, heartaches and brokenness rather than His. We self-pity and then ask God to restore us from all the troubles we experienced, have a strong faith and get healed. Then what’s next? A cycle? Get hurt again, self-pity, ask for restoration, have faith, get restored over and over again. Don’t get me wrong. It is not difficult for God to forgive us and restore us. There’s no ill-burden for Him. The question is, “Reasonable ba yung binibigay na forgiveness and restoration ng Lord sa atin, if we ask for restoration and healing from our brokenness by such repeated actions?” ‘Cause you know why? We have a big tendency to focus only on ourselves.

The reality is, we don’t matter but He matters. We focus on His heartaches and brokenness caused by our wrong-doings and short-comings. We keep on sinning and sinning, then when we get hurt, we ask for, you know it, forgiveness and restoration. If we love God, we should know the truth and we stop sinning. We stop sinning not because we are afraid of breaking His rules but we are afraid of breaking His heart.
