5 days of thankfulness
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: (Ecclesiastes 3:1 NIV)
I am a very impatient person and those who truly know me know that.:)
i want to have what I want, when I want it and God knows that fully well. That’s why I know my journey with God has grown me because, now I can confidently say I can be patient. In my walk with God, trust was always the key to getting my breakthru. I always had to cling to Him with all my might and wait on Him for his perfect timing. Sometimes I thought my timing was perfect and in the end, it turns out otherwise. God has shown me countless times that the wait for his very best is worth it. That’s why now, I’ve come to the place of knowing that waiting on the Lord is never in vain. Actually it makes me think sometimes that I’m not actually waiting on Him but in fact, He’s waiting on me. Am I ready to receive? Am I in the right position and posture? Am I strong enough to protect his blessing? I’m overjoyed that breakthu after breakthru he has proven Himself worthy of my trust and my all. I’m celebrating the season i am in now. I relish in the fact that this is a good thing. Love my God.;)

Claiming it. Xxx

5 days of thankfulness
Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think you’re going to get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all your options open. (James 1:5-8 MSG)
Since the start of this year, i’ve sacrificed so much on this thing I’ve been praying for this conference. To name a few there was my biggest offering yet for miracle offering, endless nights of crying over ludacris request from God as he asks me to obey, and pangs of heartaches caused by the unknown. I’m ecstatic to testify however that God’s promises are real and true. He came through for my prayer and petition!!! My prayer has been answered 2 months before I actually expected it. The time I got it was the time I positioned myself to receive. I remember a pastor saying, i think it was Obed Martinez, that the first letters in God is G-O. God says go. Get ready on the way. And going and getting ready is a sign that tells God, this person is a hundy on this. This person is sold out for this promise. This big gap was filled by God at the right time and at the right moment and i was thrilled, i got it before the due date. Like a pre- sale of sorts!!! But way better! Love love love my Lord. He brings me much joy.;)
Yup migranes and needless yearning to move. Now i’m getting mindful of how dependent i’ve gotten to coffee. Everytime i want one- it brings me back to the Lord. Haha. Its been very effective so far. Day 4. My my my—- a long way to go
Wow. Day 4 and i just needed to go home from a course early for this. My body is feeling it. Now i’m becoming so aware of how dependent my body is on cafffeine and chocos. Let’s do this. It’s quite effective actually. The lack i feel gets me running back to the cross. Haha this fast is awesome. I’m so gonna smash this.
fasting for a good cause. sacrificing these things are actually making me mindful of how often i think about them. ae? HAHAHHA
May God bless me in the times of choco lack and coffee cravings
usually fasts last for 40 but since i was wanting it to rhyme- it became 53. i asked God—- why cant it rhyme with 13? hahah
Day 2 of 5
Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4 NIV)
Last sunday, i found out that i’ll be a life group leader after conference. It has always been in my heart since I got here to NZ and found myself in Arise 4 years ago. as a fired up youth leader from Manila, i’ve always dreamed of having my own flock here to tend to, to nurture, and to build— but it was a long journey of waiting, of being tossed around from leadership to leadership, from zip code to zipcode, and from one city to another until finally, it came to pass last week. Thankful for God’s wonderful promises that grew me in patience and in faith. I just love my Lord’s timing. It’s always perfect.
Franka Hof nominated me for 5 days of thankfulness. Usually i just ignore these nominations like how i did the ice challenge but this one Makes sense to me.. So i’m goin for itxxx
The Lord gives the Lord takes away
I am thankful that God is my rock. My relationship with Him is not circumstancial. Recently my heart took rest on this scripture. It’s been a hard couple of months seeing many of my close friends leave and it has shattered me in a way. Then the Lord asked me ’ what if i took these people away, do you still trust me?’ And i have been choosing to trust in my Lord more eversince. all anxiety was washed away by His peace. It’s easy to trust the Lord because time and time again, my Lord has come thru for me. Praising my Lord for his faithfulness is eternal.;)xxx
YAY! inspired to blog again after sooo long. the excerpts here compared to my FB will be more informative and real though may keep names anonymous. YEHES! exciting
I forgot that I did jot down quotes about everything and anything that inspire, stir me up, or just strike me when I was younger. What a joy to relive it tonight as I read through this article.
In a way it made me re evaluate my relationships.
Just love this phrase I stumbled upon-
You can be my unintended.
