Nagdatingan ang mga tao mula sa iba’t ibang bayan at sila’y lumalapit kay Jesus.

Lucas 8:4

In 2017, Rappler published an article of the 16 most popular terms that surfaced over the social media and were used by many. Isa sa mga ito ay ang phrase na “Pagod c aqoe” which can be translated to “Pagod ako.”

Kasabay nito, tumaas din ang statistics ng stress levels ng mga tao. Kinakain ng traffic o social media ang ating oras. Puro work o kaya naman ay madaming ginagawa sa school kaya lahat ng tao ay naging sobrang busy. The sad thing is, we become too busy, and our time for the most important thing become smaller.

Are you struggling to spend an unhurried time with the Lord? Nagiging totoo na ba sa iyo ang biro na nakatulog ka habang nagpe-pray at kinabukasan mo na nabanggit ang “Amen”?

Sabi sa Lucas 8:4, “Nagdatingan ang mga tao mula sa iba’t ibang bayan at sila’y lumalapit kay Jesus.” Kung nagagawa ng mga tao noon na dumayo mula sa malalayong lugar para lumapit kay Jesus, may we also find time every day to come to Him. Dahil sa Holy Spirit na ever-present, magagawa nating lumapit sa Panginoon anumang oras natin gustuhin.

May we be reminded today that though we are busy with so many things, Jesus is our priority. He is first in our lives so let us go to the extra mile para sa ating Panginoon—sa lahat ng aspeto ng ating buhay. And when we come to Him, we will find rest.

Father, thank You for calling me to a relationship with You through Your Son Jesus. Thank You for making me realize that when I spend time with You, I find rest. Open my eyes so that I may always see You at work in my life each day. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.


Make a list of what you do every day for a week. Lagyan din ito ng katumbas na oras na ibinibigay mo. Look at your lifestyle and see what robs you of your time for God. Halimbawa, instead of prayer time, you spend too much time on social media. Sa bawat item, make specific actions para mabawasan o tuluyang ma-eliminate ang mga ito. In exchange, allot more time for your personal devotion, prayer, fellowship with other Christians, ministry, and rest.
