A Brief Reflection on the Father

“I Believe in God, the Father Almighty…”

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name…”

God is the Father. He created us, and we are His children. As a Father, God is there to provide for us. God gives us the grace which gives life to our soul. God provides his obedient children with the things they need. Indeed, by being a good child of God, our Father will definitely be good to us.

However, like any parent, God also has a stern side. Whenever the children are disobedient, every now and then God will have to give a time-out.

And this, unfortunately, was how my previous week was. Yep, I believe God gave me a time-out.

*For those expecting a much more profound entry, I’m sorry. I have developed the habit of microblogging in the past years unfortunately. I promise you readers much more profound entries in the coming days. Oh, and if some get offended by the “irreverence” of this entry’s tone, I’m sorry again.

The Obligatory First Post

My spiritual director, Fr. Gary Soria, suggested to me once that I put my thoughts and reflections about my religion on a journal. I decided to make another blog for this. Take note, however, that this is a purely personal blog. I do not aim to offend, or challenge anyone’s beliefs. These are personal thoughts of one who while has lived for more than 20 years in this world,  yet only decided to take his faith seriously December of 2011. This is a journey of self-discovery. Hopefully, this continues much more than my other blogs.

I thank you for your patience and understanding. Welcome! 🙂
