If you knew your life is coming to an end, what would you want to do in the remaining seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, etc..? Not many people have that opportunity to know the number of how much time they have. I had this thought-provoking question running around my mind the past week during a “freak” accident at work last Thursday, April 7th 2011. A client pointed out to me there was a lot of “sharpies” or lancets (short pointed needles people use to draw blood on their finger for diabetics) thrown in a recycling bin. I didn’t want any of the clients to get hurt, so I put on some latex gloves and hand picked each one by one. It was taking too long as this recycling barrel (4 feet tall and 2-3 feet wide) was half-way full and would take “forever” to sort through this. I decided to dump the barrel into a plastic garbage bag. As I was tipping the barrel, a lancet somehow made it’s way down and poked my right “middle-finger” through the plastic latex glove. I saw the blood gush out inside my latex-plastic covered hand. I immediately finished what I was doing and threw the garbage out in the dumpster, so no one else will get poked. I then washed my hand with water and soap, I took the Coke can where I was throwing the lancets and brought it with me to our staff’s nurse and got medical attention. When I went home, I didn’t realize how serious this was until I “googled” on my personal lab top computer. I immediately called the local hospital and was scheduled to get a blood test right away.

Through this whole time, lots of questions started to pop on my mind. I even still have them popping-up as I write this. However, my peace grew as I kept giving it to God. I then started to think about the movie “Bucket List“…

The Bucket List – Official Trailer

Uploaded on May 22, 2009
“Corporate billionaire Edward Cole and working class mechanic Carter Chambers are worlds apart. At a crossroads in their lives, they share a hospital room and discover they have two things in common: a desire to spend the time they have left doing everything they ever wanted to do before they kick the bucket and an unrealized need to come to terms with who they are. Together they embark on the road trip of a lifetime, becoming friends along the way and learning to live life to the fullest. Each adventure adds another check to their list, all done with insight and humor.

… (see GoodnewsEverybody.com Elderly, Old, Longevity, Senior Citizens, Wisdom, etc… Outreach) , which I started to reflect on things (e.g. reconcile some folks) I would like to see done or more importantly-“Do for Heavenly Father“- before I die or when God takes me Home.

Overcoming your own addictions

You can’t do it by yourself!

A friend was telling me he was struggling with his diabetes as he just keeping eating foods that he knows he shouldn’t be eating. I told him, do you want to see your grand kids grow-up? For me, if I was him, I would love to grow old as I can to see them until God takes me to Heaven with Him. I have had this conversation with many others who tell me that they don’t care if they die early because of current circumstances. I share that I would love to live as long as I can because life is worth living for. Thus, this is just an extra motivation to taking care of my health. How about you?

This friend kept on repeating that he can’t do it on his own. I then (light bulb pop out as I was reminded that I was asking God earlier to show me how I can be used by Him today-was helping this friend with an outdoor painting project) shared, I know you can’t do it on your own because you need God’s help! I told him everybody has an addicion or some addictions. I then shared (e-mailed this to him this morning to make sure he remembers!) my own story of how I’ve been able to overcome (just one of my addictions) my “border-line” diabetes (see story) diagnosed 2-3 years ago.

I shared this “open door” (sharing my life) story at my local church this morning, which I wasn’t able to share that we can’t let these family health (e.g. sin) history repeat itself. Yes, diabetes has been in my family for generations, but I’m not going to let that happen to me-no matter what statistics are out there. I’m a “new creation” in Christ and everything started new when I came to Christ in 1996 (see personal testimony). What has helped me to overcome diabetes and other addictions in life is using the “tools” (Bible verses-see down below) through prayer (e.g. fasting regularly-sometimes once a week from certain foods) that God has equipped me over the years growing in my personal relationship. For example, one of my favorite quoted verses is Galatians 5

“…But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. 25Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit…

Earlier this weekend (Sunday, September 20th of 2009), I heard this short message from my local Christian radio on “Using the tools (e.g. what’s mentioned in the Bible) God has given us”..One can be the most physical strongest person as a construction worker, but if he/she doesn’t have the tools (e.g. hammer) -that own strength is worthless in constructing a house, building, or any construction project. This analogy shows our true self that we can’t do things in life on our own, we need to use the “tools” the God has given us to handle our daily life’s “projects” or “challenges”. Next time you come up with a “project” that seem impossible, just remember to ask God for the “tools” to use to overcome them.

Prevention & Battling Diabetes

GoodnewsEverybody.com: Health-Diabetes

My (Sal) reason for creating this website is because I’ve been “directly” affected by this health issue. Diabetes has been a health issue in my family for generations, which I personally need to take some precautions to fight this health battle in my genes-of course, with the help of my Lord-Amen?

I love sugar since day 1. I love sweets, which I would seek and find around the kitchen back at home. Since I’ve come to a personal relationship with Christ, I’ve been educated from the Word to keep my “…body as a living sacrifice to God, holly and pleasing to Him!” (Romans 12:1).

It’s not easy to stay from sweets and not get tempted as your body physically urges it! However, I’ve learned that fasting and staying in the Word; focussing on Jesus, all things are possible!

You must take charge! (Wednesday, September 3rd of 2008)

About 4 years ago I had a routine check-up from my doctor. He then came out to warn me that I have a chance of getting diabetes as I’m close to “border-line” diabetic unless I change my eating habits. It freaked me out when I heard it as I’ve had some knowledge of past family history. I decided to research and find what causes diabetes? I found out my diet of eating too much rice, pop years ago (quit drinking too much of it years ago), etc.. was the “culprit”! I started cutting down or even stop eating white rice (brown rice instead; In fact, wheat-bread, noodles, etc.. is a lot better than “white”). A year later, my doctor told me I was “no-longer” close to borderline diabetic! Halleluah! Yes, we can ask others for prayer and God for healing, but we need to also ask God for “wisdom” and “knowledge” on what we can “individually” do about our health circumstances or situations!

Improving Eye Sight Story

GoodnewsEverybody.com Blind, Eyes, Sight, etc… Outreach

Today (Wednesday, July 8th of 2009) I had to write about some “cool” updated good news!! I went to get my eye exam the other day (Monday), which was long over due-over 3 years since my last eye exam. It’s recommended to get this done ever 2 years or so… Well, I went to get my eye exam and the readings have improved!! Halleluah! Praise the Lord! My right eye improved from -1 to +3 something…Of course, I had to get a new prescription. I’ll have the exact numbers when I pick my glasses next time I head to the Twin Cities. I know my eyes has improved because earlier last year when I passed my “behind-the-wheel” bus driving test and was going to get my license, I passed my eye exam to exempt or get my “need glasses” taken out of my old drivers license. I contribute this improvement to God giving me “wisdom” on how to improve my eyes by seeking online to improve my eye sight in various ways:

-taking breaks from being online (e.g. doing websites like theses)
-eating a healthier diet (e.g. was “diagnose” close to border-line diabetic unless I change my “lifestyle”)
-praying for healing
-therapy exercises (close one eye for 5 minutes and swith to the other eye to help strengthen both of them)
-taking Lueten vitamins (see down below) in a regular basis (at least once a week)

What’s next? I just gotta keep maintaining this “healthy” lifestyle and hope to encourage others in similar health problems to live a healthier lifestyle. With God…all things are possible! Amen? AMEN!!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Do you have any other tips to improve your eye sight?
