Subject:Sorry...give me more time

After school i decided to go home early. While riding a Jeepney(transport car) i saw a woman(one of the passenger) sitting beside me carrying 2 of her children , the other 2 is beside her and in the front seat. When i look at them i really felt so pity . The boy beside her was so untidy and he was sweating all over his face because of the hot weather. Looking at the woman, i can see that they are poor. Her children were so thin, i could consider them malnourished.  I really wanted to cry when i saw the boy beside her, so innocent and young and i can see in his eyes how good he is. He was carrying a bottle of milk for his two younger sibling. He gave a towel to his sibling,who was in the front seat and told him to wipe his head and face. At that moment, i really adore him because at a young age he learned to be more responsible and concern to his siblings. I thought to myself to give them my burger that i have not eaten during break but i was too shy and scared. I was shy because there were so many passengers in the jeepney and i am sure there attention will be towards us and scared that the mother will refuse my kindness.I am ashame when people refuse my offer. But i really wanted to give it to them but i just don't have the courage and self-confidence to do so. I really felt sorry for not giving it to them. If only there's anything i can do to help them. So,when i reached my destination,i got out in the jeepney with a heavy heart. Until now, i still regret not giving them the food. It's my only chance to give something to them but i didn't do. All i have done was staring them the whole time i was there.

I really want to help people who are suffering from poverty. I am not rich but i got all the things i needed in life. And i know that i am lucky enough. And so,I feel guilty every time i see poor people because there's nothing i can do to help them. I don't have the courage and the spirit. My fear rule over me. "I am scared to interact with different people and i hate myself for that". I really really felt sorry for not doing the things that i should have done. I still need time to gain my self-confidence, to be myself

Subject:Let me introduce myself . . . [Nov. 5th, 2005|01:28 pm]
Time:02:48 pm
I have always believed that God really exists. When I was just a child, my mother taught me to pray and instructed me to say my prayers before going to sleep. However, we did not attend church and now in adulthood, I lack the background that many of you may have. I have made many selfish mistakes in my life. There are numerous situations that I would like to "take back" and forget ever happened. Others have been hurt and disappointed along the way, because of me. You see, I led a very destructive life. I believed that God exists but did I believe Him with my heart and mind? Did I seek Him with my whole being and choose Him for my best friend? I now realize that I cannot change the past but I can ask Jesus to change my heart. Because of Him, my present and future have been changed.

About three years ago, I began seeing the numbers "316" in various places. Still today, I continue to see these numbers repeatedly (at least 5 times per week). I'll wake up suddenly at night, look at the clock, and it reads "3:16". I look at the timer on my CD player and the display says "316". While working on a report at work, I will often see $316.00. A phone number or address that I'm looking for will include this trio of numbers. When paying a bill or purchasing something, my total amount will include this series of numbers. In my heart, I believe that God is showing Himself to me in a way that I will recognize. I am now beginning to see God's presence in many other areas of my life.

I created this journal for two reasons. First, I have a great desire to grow and develop in my walk with God. In order to do this, I need to surround myself with others who make God the number one priority in their lives. Secondly, I want to share my story with others who wish to hear it. My heart has been released from the anger and bitterness that controlled my life for such a long time. Only Jesus could accomplish that for me. Since He worked a miracle in my life, he can forgive and heal anyone who comes to Him.

I can't really type anything so I copied the e-mail that was sent to the campus.

Dear Bethany Community,

Our dear friend, teacher, and colleague, Roger Bishop, died Tuesday night around 11:00 p.m. He was surrounded by his family and died very peacefully and without pain.

We will gather as a community of prayer in Chapel this morning at 10:30 to give thanks to God for Roger’s life.

The time for the funeral will be determined later today.
Rest eternal grant him, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon him.


Peace,

Noni Strand
Campus Pastor

Please pray for our community as we try to cope with this matter.

So here is another update and hopefully last for a while. So on Monday my professor went and saw an Oncologist (sp?). And the news was not good. He told my professor that he had 2-6 months to live. He is still teaching and he will as long as he is able.

Here is an update on my professor. Well today...Thursday he is having a colonoscopy. He does have some form of cancer. He is meeting with the oncologist on monday to come up with treatment ideas. He is still teaching. He is losing strength in his left left, he has trouble speaking because he has to gasp for breath, he is also losing a lot of weight. His wife is being as strong as she can, considering all the health problems she went through at the beginning of the year. His kids are having a rough time dealing with it. Just please keep praying for him. They need all the prayers they can get.

Thanks so much and God Bless

I am asking everyone to please pray for my college professor and Advisor, Roger Bishop. He has started to undergo testing for what they have found to be lesions on the back of his brain which they think started in either his stomach or pelvic region. He has also form lumps on his neck and under his left arm. The lump under his left arm is causing him to lose feeling and movement in his arm. Please pray for him and his Wife Gem. They are great people and he is a huge asset to the Bethany College Community.

God Bless
Bruce
