We went to Hong Kong (Yeah, I went there for the 1st time. Will share about this soon :D) last Dec 7 to 9 and watch Manny’s fight on a sport bar with different races. We were all excited! Shouting! Cheering! Sharing thoughts of the much awaited fight. By the start of the fight we all knew that we are one team as we all hopes for Manny to won the fight. But we we’re all sad after what happened. Yes, Manny was Knocked Down by Marquez. That’s the truth!
Getting back to Manila was a bit hard knowing there were bad news. As of now, speculations on why he lost the fight are still going around television, social networking site, newspaper, radio and people around. But what most struck me and probably broke my heart is the religious debate that’s happening. On how Mommy Dionisia persecuted her own son. I know how it felt to be persecuted by my own Mother; a painful and heart brokening experience but this strengthen my faith. What I know for sure is God is in control. His ways and thoughts are higher than ours. Maybe we don’t understand yet but soon after all the storm and even during the period of learning He will surely reveal Himself.
Manny! Be steadfast! Hold on to your new found faith.
1 Peter 5:9
Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith. Remember that your Christian brothers and sisters all over the world are going through the same kind of suffering you are.
