ODB Series: Anchor Our Strength to God

Our Daily Bread Reflection

For what trials are you depending on God for strength? What Bible verses help you?

This pandemic surely brought more knees to prayer. So much more that nobody knows when will this end. The economy is down, the death toll is getting higher, many of us are suffering. But knowing that God is able to calm the storm somehow should encourage each one of us that this, too, shall come to pass and we should not lose heart in facing this challenges. This may not be  true to all but for those who lost someone due to this pandemic shall have the assurance that their dearly departed one  are now back to Our Creator. Easier said than done, but this is the best time to anchor our hope and strength to God.

Let's just pray that God will be able to sustain us throughout this situation. God bless everyone.

ODB Series: Finding Joy and Claiming God's Promises in His Words

Our Daily Bread Reflection:

When have you experienced joy in reading the Scriptures? What can help you regain your hunger and thirst for God?

We experienced real joy when we put into our heart what we read in His Words. I am somehow have that guilt feeling today in my heart. When other people have been spending their time reading the Scriptures and fervently asking God for this pandemic to be gone, I find joy in spending my time doing the things that I love to do- more of movie marathon, mobile browsing, eating, sleeping and less of praying. No wonder I easily get stress, becoming more irritable and very anxious of what's been happening now because I failed to surrender my time to God. But then God never allow me to fall continually to Satan's bait. Right this instant He reminded me. Out of the blue I have this realization. I'm totally grateful to God's faithfulness in my life even if I failed Him for countless times.

The Government and its Fault-Finding Citizen

I no longer watch TV (yup,since  the quarantine period)
I no longer listen to the radio
It's only here in fb that I get updated. 

I salute those people or community that really did something TO FLATTEN THE CURVE.

At first, I don't understand what it means, and fb taught me.

The increasing number of cases, the mortality rate-all of those are alarming and all the more alarming because it cost the lives of some of our main frontliners, our great doctors. 

The doctors are asking us to abide by the rules
-social distancing, disinfecting, and the likes.

And yet...

Some citizens with  'high order thinking skills' (higher than that of our PHILIPPINES PRESIDENT RODRIGO ROA DUTERTE (PPRRD), so they thought) express their LAMENTS, SENTIMENTS of the failure of the government in fighting this pandemic without even realizing that they, themselves, are the GREAT FAILURES of this country because they could not even abide by the rules. 

And there are still more who shows their dissatisfaction towards PPRRD and they brought their cases here in fb. These are the people who couldn't take the President's incompetence. These are the people who supported the call for PPRRD to step down. These are the people who cannot tolerate sarcasm, and the same people who thought highly of.themselves- perfectionist, so to speak.

But I wonder if these people knew how does the three branches of the government works. I remember such lesson back in my college days and I thought it's not that easy after all. I believe the role of the President is VERY DIFFICULT considering the scope and complexity. And he's not the sole authority in and of everything. Some, if not all, of his projects, plans, procurement, etc are subject for approval from the Senate though he has discretionary power but I guess he's not that powerful after all. So why these people blame EVERY lapses of.this country only to him? 

And maybe, it would be a whole lot better if these bunch of perfectionist people will convene and converge their brilliant ideas in making a better Philippines then present it to the legislative body instead of ranting their sentiments and call to oust PPRRD or blaming us for voting and rooting for him.

Then, we have this fault-finding media who forgot about responsible journalism. Headlines matter my dear writers so be careful because we have lots of quick thinking Pinoys who based their comments on the headlines, alone. Reading comprehension should be reinforced once again because it seems like we're all good in reading but not comprehending. I wonder what's really the role of the Editor-in Chief nowadays. 

And so, for those who find our government embarrassing, Netherlands say hi to you. Yes, it would be a whole lot better if you get rid of yourself from this embarrassment and flee from it. So please do our country a favor- say goodbye to Philippines and welcome yourself to Netherlands and send my regards to Other 'significant' Filipinos there.

Hey, I'm not defending PPRRD (though it seems like doing so), of course he's not perfect, he's old you know and older people at his age are full of sarcasm, they talk straight to the point, they are sometimes misunderstood actually (Hello to my Grandpa in another realm). How do you treat your old pop by the way? I felt sorry for those people who even dropped the politeness in addressing the President. Try doing that to your Manager or CEO or even your local government like your Brgy Captain calling them by their first name if you won't get reprimanded. What happened to RESPECT? Has it lost it's vigor as well? 

We can not win this battle and other battles to come if we will all act in accordance to what we believe. We only have one government so we should unite as one. If you don't like PPRRDs personality, at least just trust his governance. Let's respect him because he deserves it. If he fails, let's suffer together (of course you still have the option to migrate), and if he will win this challenge because we're all in it together, then let's celebrate together.

Let us all remember what values our.ancestors have taught us- and BAYANIHAN is what our country badly need right now, not your ranting  braincells.

Peace and love everyone!

How To Be A Trucker

Truckers are essential members of the national workforce in any country. Professional truck drivers are responsible for delivering items to stores and other outlets all across the country. They work for long hours on the road but are rewarded with freedom and an exciting and ever-changing lifestyle. Read the steps below to learn how to become a professional trucker.

Earn a Driver's License

First things first, anyone who wants to become a trucker must already have, or earn, a driver's license for an average car. This because trucking institutes need to make sure that the potential drivers understand the rules of the road and have some experience with driving already, even if the person has never driven a semi-truck or other commercial vehicle. 

Earn a Commerical Learner's Permit

The next step is to earn a commercial learner's permit (CDP). The requirements for being able to earn a CDP varies on the state you live in. However, you need to be 21 to drive a commercial truck over state lines, so it's best to be that old before applying for a CDP anyway. During your training to earn a CDP, you will be allowed to practice driving commercial vehicles so you can become more comfortable with them.

Attend a Commerical Driver License Program

Once you have your CLP, it's time to start working on your CDL. These programs work as mini-schools that focus on teaching you how to drive safely. These classes include practice driving the vehicles, along with classroom work. These classes typically take between 3-6 weeks. Once the classes are done, you will be asked to take both written and road tests. If you pass, you will earn your CDL and be ready for someone from a heavy truck recruitment to hire you!
If these steps sound do-able to you, then you might have what it takes to become a professional truck driver. Check out classes in your area and earn your CDL as soon as possible!

Why Investing in an Access Control System is a Good Idea

Over 34% of the burglaries that occur in the United States each year affect small businesses. Instead of waiting until your business is robbed to take action, you need to focus on securing your business right now. Ignoring the need for heightened security can lead to lots of problems occurring.
While there are a number of things you can add to your building to make it more secure, nothing is quite as effective as an access control system. Read below to find out why adding one of these systems to your commercial building is a great idea.  

A Great Way to Reduce Employee Theft

Preparing for external threats is something most business owners are passionate about. However, employee theft is rarely considered by entrepreneurs. Ignoring the threat that disgruntled employees present will come back to haunt you in the long run. Instead of waiting until an employee theft occurs, you need to invest in an access control system.
With these systems, you can restrict access to certain parts of your building. If you have a room where lots of sensitive information is stored, you need access control locks in place. These access controls Evansville IN allow you to restrict access and reduce the threat of employee theft.

Easy to Install and Maintain

Some people have the misconception that access control systems are hard to install and maintain. In reality, an experienced installer can get this system in place quickly. Once they have the system in place, you should have no problem keeping it maintained. These systems allow you to remove people from the system and add new employees with minimal effort.

Professional Installation is a Must

If you feel like an access control system is right for your business, hiring professionals to install it is crucial. Paying professionals to do this work is the best way to get it in place quickly and correctly.
