Lately because of work and my responsibilities in taking care of my siblings and the household, I’ve become so clueless about showbiz. I’m shocked to see new commercials and discover that the dramas have changed. I’m like, “When did this new drama come along? What happened to the last one I was watching? Who are all these young actors? Ay, may PBB na pala ulit?!” Our househelp or my younger sisters are the ones who end up giving me the play by play to these questions. HAHAHA
That’s why it doesn’t surprise me much that I only heard about the KC-Piolo breakup this lunchtime. Mukhang huli na naman ako sa balita. After seeing the newsflash about it, I’m relieved that because of work I miss out on most senseless stuff like this.
On facebook and even the TV set of the sari-sari store outside our office, it’s what’s being talked about.
I stated the following on my wall this morning. “It’s so sad how people conclude right away that Piolo is gay just because they broke up. What’s more saddening is how people can throw such haphazard judgments even when they don’t even know the person. If that’s the case, should people continue to be in relationships unhonoring to God just to avoid being called gay? COME ON NOW?! James 4:11-12 (first and last stat on the issue)”
As the day went by though, I continued to read comments and blah2x on trending topics on the net, I ask myself the question, “Where is all this judging and mockery coming from?” It says in James 4:11-12, “Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against a brother or sister or judges them speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it. There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you—who are you to judge your neighbor.”
I feel quite disturbed by how KC had to go to such extent in speaking up if she’s going to withhold some details but spat out some misleading and/or leading statements that would just cause people to speculate all the more. It would have really been more wise to keep mum on the issue just like what Maricar Reyes did on another very controversial issue a few years back. She neither denied or confirmed it but gracefully kept her peace about the situation. Now that’s what made it die down eventually without “hurting any other people” as KC said in the interview.
Personally, if you really do care for and love that person, you would always put that person’s well being first before your own. No matter how offended or much pain you’re in. I understand that as women we are emotional beings. We have to air it out, but things could have been done differently.
In the interview, she said she couldn’t tell anyone. Actually she did the exact opposite. She told the entire Philippines first. Talking to the Father first of all her heartaches could have spared such an emotional outburst. It is said He is close to the broken hearted (see Psalm 34:18).
The wisest move would have been to seek Him on the matter first. “The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.” Psalm 9:9-10.
Hurt? Yes. Angry? Yes. Confused? Yes. Helpless? Yes. Let it all out. To God. NOT media. After all, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Psalm 147:3. Let Him do for you what telling the world can’t. Can it do anything to heal the pain? To lessen the anger? To erase your confusion and helplessness? Maybe it would, for the MEANTIME. Then you wake up, only to find out that it’s the same. or worse, your actions caused more havoc.
I mean look at the results of that interview. It’s got people talking, people judging, people spatting at each other on the internet. Now that’s just the internet. Who knows what lies outside of this office door? Ephesians 4:29 “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”
After seeking God, surrounding oneself with Godly people that can be talked to helps. This circle would include your family, spiritual family, and friends. Great if all these people belonged to the same category (Which I thank God tons for because he’s blessed me with family and friends that are also a part of my spiritual family.) You’ll be surprised that God would use them to counsel, comfort, encourage you and get peace and joy as a result of their presence. Proverbs 13:20 says, “He who walks with the wise grows wise.” 1 John 1:7, “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.”
I can go on and on, but I hope this becomes as a reminder. To all of us, me included. If you got offended by this, I won’t say sorry. I will just let the Truth speak for itself. As what Pastor Dawny said yesterday, “Why not, instead of evaluating the Bible, why don’t you allow the Bible to evaluate you?”
At the end of this blog, I realized that I have a newfound appreciation for this blown-up issue. It brings both darkness (gossip, slander, drama, judgment) out but it also draws out the light and the Truth that only the Father can do. In all things (even the bad), He’s able to use it ALL FOR HIS GLORY.
NOTE: no bashing please :))
