When you are doing God's will, the more the enemy will come and taunt you. Have you noticed that? Satan always chooses just the right time to attack us and He knows when to pull the rug out from under us. This is exactly what happened to me this morning.

I fasted last night and spent time with God, woke up from a good night sleep, went to office and called up my husband as I always do every morning (thanks, Jolly, for creating my new VoIP account). I was determined to do whatever is right today and guess what, the enemy did his best to ruin everything for me. Nice try though. Sure, I got annoyed a few times, but I didn't give him the satisfaction of getting me in bondage again. I knew he was trying to get me to do what I would usually do when I'm pissed. He knew exactly how to tick me off. But he failed to get what he wanted.

Temptation will always knock at our doors but when it does, let's make sure to let Jesus answer it.

Goodbyes Are Not Always Forever 2

Monday, July 24, 2006

Hubby left again yesterday. It was actually the same month when he left last year. I wasn't really prepared emotionally for this, well, I guess I never will be no matter how often this happens. There's just so many things I'd be missing about him...

We were busy packing his things last Saturday, but I was in denial. After we attended the service in the afternoon, our cell members gave him a small get-away party then they prayed for us and his trip. Back home as we were getting ready for bed, it dawned on me that this was for real, my husband's leaving the next day. That's when the heavy waterworks all started.

Today, I'm waiting for his call and praying that all is well with him.

Babe, take care and always remember that I love you very much, I always will. God bless.

Just Busy...

Just busy. I'll be back soon.

One Hectic Day

Monday, July 10, 2006
Jec and I went to a mall in downtown area last Saturday to buy some stuff for the new business we're starting soon. It was one hectic day. Woke up at 6:30 a.m. and left the house at 7:30 a.m. to have my blood test. Then we went to the clinic to get a number for my late afternoon check up. Then we met up with my bestfriend so we can go buy the stuff we need. It took us the whole afternoon to buy everything on our list.

Jec went to the restroom on the other building while Jen and I waited on the other wing. I got a call from Jec a few minutes later and he told us to get all our stuff and leave the building as fast as we could. I was just about to ask why when he told me "just leave and meet me at the entrance!". I knew there was something wrong. Jen and I scurried out the building with three huge plastic bags full of stuff we bought. There were policemen everywhere and people were running off in different directions. The news didn't reach the people inside the mall yet, I figured. Some dingbat purposedly left a bomb somewhere outside the mall that caused people to panic. What was he/she thinking? Why would he/she want people to die? We didn't wait around anymore, we just went straight home, freshened up and went back to the clinic for my check up. We were so pooped from going around the metro the whole day. Well, we finished our errands and we're glad we did. Thank God we got home safe and sound.

Which Report Will You Believe?

Monday, July 3, 2006
For years, I've been depressed on and off everyime I get my doctor's report regarding my health. Fear would overcome me for every single bad news I hear from my doctors. I've been disappointed with God many times in the past because I've been praying like crazy and still nothing changed. The more I prayed, the worse the reports got.

I was told to believe and claim my healing because that's God's will for everyone of us. So I did, but I didn't quite understand how that works. I thought once I start believing and claiming it for myself, I'll get instant results. Gosh, I was wrong! Sure, some people get healed instantly like it was a microwave miracle. But for some, like me, it takes time. Why? Only God knows and I can only assume. One thing is for sure, though, God has a reason for it, we'll find out about it eventually, in time. So while we're in it, which report will we believe?

The medical report says one thing but the Word of God says another. You have to decide which one you're going to believe. I had to make a choice. Was I going to entertain fear and get depressed the whole time while my mind try to absorb the FACT that I'm sick and hopeless or was I going to believe in God's TRUTH that says by His wounds we are healed (Isaiah 53:5)? God's report says, "He took our infirmities and carried our diseases" (Matthew 8:17). "They will lay hands on the sick, and they will get well" (Mark 16:18). I chose the latter. Along with it I say, "I'm getting better everyday". In time, I'd be able to say what Lindsay Roberts said, "Soon the symptoms caught up with my faith and they began to line up with the Word of God. Today I am healed!" I know I'm getting there.
