Finally, finally

Finally, I bought my first laptop ever, a Samsung rc410.

Its not that flashy, but hey… i needed a machine that fits my budget and my needs… which are chatting, blogging and surfing and it fits quite snugly.

I’m happy.

I’ve tested it quite a bit, used it for Facebook chatting, Skype video calling, watching movies, surfing the net, watching on Youtube, even helped my friend locate and download drivers for his laptop that found itself in need of a Windows XP re-installation.

But I guess I’ll be paying Jumbo Electronics (Dubai Mall branch) a visit this week. I tried watching HD film (Ip Man) via VLC with the machine running on batteries, and in 2¬†occasions, it gave me a Blue Screen. I tried running the same HD movie on the same software but with the AC plugged in, voila! played smoothly. I’m still testing it though and once an anomaly is confirmed, be ready for an explanation Jumbo.

So far, everything is a-ok.

And right now, I’d like to thank Father God for this provision and may He use this machine for His glory alone and as a staunch ally of mine in the ministry He gave me.

Thank You Father!

Glory to Glory

“But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”

– II Corinthians 3:18

I was sharing some views with a friend just this morning, we were talking about reaching goals set before us. Specifically, we talked about how to become a better Christian. How to become one in our present situation now.

As we shared our views, positive or otherwise, we learned that we can be better Christians, not instantly, nor overnight, but in a process, in a journey, taking one single step to start with, one step at a time, and as the verse said “from glory to glory”. And that we have to take each single step, not alone, but with the Lord.

But how do we know if we are taking the right step? How do we know if we are in the right direction? Now, I would like to leave those questions for you to find out the specifics.

As for our discussion, we ended with a prayer asking God to show us which way to go, which step to take and how to take them. We thanked Him for reminding us that indeed, we are never alone in this journey called life. That He is always with us no matter what.

No matter what situation we are in life now. No matter where in life we are now. No matter who we are.

No matter what.

Thank You Lord.
