All For Jesus

      4 Comments on All For Jesus

all for jesusIf you studied at a Catholic School during the sixties, the nuns required you to scrawl “All for Jesus” on the top page of your notebook or pad paper. As a little girl, I had no inkling what “All for [tag]Jesus[/tag]” meant. Nuns during those days threw those beady mean eyed looks if you didn’t follow their commands. I merely wrote those words like a robot. Perhaps the daily ritual of scribbling those words “All for Jesus” carried a subliminal message which I carried on during times of stress. I find myself scribbling “All for Jesus” at the top page of my monthly sales ledger.

Of course you know that any business has fixed cost which needs to be covered immediately. During the first week of the month, I usually freak out if my sales are not meeting targets. But I learned along the way. There are few aspects of our life we can control . Sales can be unpredictable. Market forces are out of our control. Controllable forces are innovative marketing tools, prompt service and quality . I’ve learned that I don’t have to obsess over my goals. I don’t have to constantly watch and mark my sales . I do my job, set my goals and Let Go and let God.

What do I do?

Set Goals.
Believe I deserve the best, financially.
Believe God cares about my finances.
Let go of fear and just trust.

Writing “All for Jesus” every month as my goal means I dedicate my income for my family’s needs and advocacies. “Let Go and Let God ” works for me. it gives me peace and gratitude for every blessing I receive. Acceptance and gratitude turn what we have into more.

  • at the ateneo, they use +amdg (ad majorem dei gloria), all for the glory of God. but unlike us, during our times, each atenean knows by heart what it stands for and what it means. perhaps it was our orientation, our obedience to the nuns, or perhaps we were not really listening at that time. but it holds meaning – all for Jesus, all for the glory of God. with that is our acknowledgment and acceptance of the greatest power of all – God.

  • @sexy mom- Ah i hear that all the time in Ateneo when my daughter went to college there.

  • “Let go and let God” — we often say this especially when we have hard exams in school. 🙂

    I also used to say “Kapit Lang” to anyone who was having a hard time holding on to God. Whenever some of my members in YFC tell me of their problems and how hard it is for them, that’s the first thing I tell them.

    Haha, I realized how the two statements I said here seem to be contradicting when you first read it, but the meaning is basically the same. 😀

    You are right Noemi.. Everything we are, do or have is for God. All for Jesus. That’s what we should be.
