Today , the weather is cold . It is drizzling outside . My thoughts are far away , to the garden outside . I
know when I am not thinking then all my ideas will come tumbling . On the other hand , when I think hard , they are so illusive
; as if playing a game of hide and seek with me . Now I see , now I don't see , you know what I mean .
Yes , to come back to today's topic . I have read the chapter and reread it ; this chapter about self doubt
. But I just closed that chaper and started writing ; because it is my own idea that I try to catch . I cannot
echo the writer's idea . I cannot think like him . But I do get some ideas from him , from somewhere
of how to write this topic.
What do people do when they have self -doubt ? They may begin to have the negative feelings about themselves.
Yes , for a child , it is as simple as that ; he gets the answers from parents,There are also his
teachers , friends , elders and betters who can help out .But very often than not he doesn't get
the right answers or approach the right persons . His best friend may be a drug addict , a delinquent or a bad character
That's when all the problems come in , you have delinquent children , problem teenagers who can infleunce
you more than good friends , teachers or religious people can . The adults too , need someone to talk to about their emotional
problems ,their marriage life , financial proiblems etc .
Almost not many think of approaching God to solve their problems , or that is what I think .For the problems
are kind of worldly and need worldly solutions or experts' opinions on this and that .
However , we are lucky to be Christians for we can approach Our Lord, Our Lady to help solve
our problems , like David in Psalm 26 .
So I put my trust in the Lord .He will replace my insecurity with His supernatural peace . Feeding my faith will
starve my doubts . ( Quoted }
Who do you say I am ?
If Jesus asked you this question ,
what will your answer be ? If Jesus
asked me this question
I think I'll give
the same answer as Peter , " You are
Yes, Christ is God .The son of God.
Because I read it in St . John's Gospel
that when Jesus was
John the Baptist,he saw heaven open
and the spirit of God descend like
a dove, alighting on him and
a voice from
heaven said, " This is my beloved son,
in whom I am well pleased ."
Jesus, time and again proved that he
is God,the Son, He performed many miracles.
He cured the
sick and raised the death
to life. He changed water to wine and
fed 5000 people with only 5 loaves of
He was born as a man to be close to us,
to be Our Saviour.In those days,he had
to teach the Jewish
people the kingdom
of God. He chose Peter and the other
apostles to spread the faith . Luckily
for us , the good
news is spread from
Israel to other countries then later
through the good and brave work of
missionaries , the
faith is spread
His followers are called Christians,
after his name Christ . That's us.
We are Christians.And
we are Catholics.
We are lucky to be the followers of
Christ. I give thanks and praise to God.
