Thankful Thursday

Thursday, September 25, 2008

I'm going through some serious stuff. Two people wanted to take advantage of my situation. The fact that I didn't have peace anymore about what's happening means my red flags are up. It means DANGER. I sought God last night for guidance and wisdom. My friend Karl prayed for me. Now I'm faced with some tough decisions that I have to make. This move will either make me or break me. When I read the verse for today in my CWO's Daily Snippets from the Word, I found such comfort. I knew God's speaking to me.
Better is little with the fear of the Lord, than great treasure and trouble therewith." Proverbs 15:16
Lord, thank you for being there, always helping and protecting me. Thank you. In Jesus' mighty name, amen.

For some people this might be just a small thing, two simple questions I asked God early Tuesday morning. But God answered those two simple questions with such vivid analogy. I know without a shadow of a doubt that my breakthrough is near... I could almost smell the sweet aroma of my victory.

Thank you, Lord. I give you all the glory.

Smooth Operator

I have been getting emails from a "girl" named Christine Tan. I thought "she" was somebody I knew from school, but the content of "her" email was questionable. "She" seems to know a lot about my life. I began to doubt "her" character and motive when "she" started emailing me which sounded more like "she" was convincing me to let go of my stand. What "she" didn't know was, as I responded to "her" email, I meant it when I said I knew who "she" was. How did I know? Well, suffice it to say that my God has been protecting me all this time. This person knows very well that I'm married. But he (yes you read it right, HE) tried to ignore that fact. Whether he did try to skip that very important FACT of my life or not, I certainly did not appreciate his "friendly advice".
Buddy, I know who you are. Stop hiding behind that pseudonym, stop sending me emails and stop disregarding my marital status. I'm trying my best to give you the respect you deserve for who you are, but don't push it. Please don't make me confront you, but I will if you don't stop. You know how straight forward I can be"
For your sake, I will reiterate my stand.
I know what I want and you can't swerve it. I'm not confused. My eyes are set on the finish line"

I Prayed... God Answered

Tuesday, September 9, 2008
Often times Valerie wondered what her life will become and what her future holds. Have you ever asked that question? Valerie did last Friday... again. For the nth time she asked God for direction. She asked God what He'd like her to do. She asked Him for wisdom. She asked Him for His will for her life and her marriage. She held that prayer in her heart. And for the nth time God didn't fail to answer.

The past few weeks Valerie was already contemplating of having her marriage annulled. Yes, they have problems. She felt like her time was being wasted and it's time to finally give up the fight. She was tired of waiting, tired of standing in the gap for her husband and her marriage. She wanted to be set free from all these craziness. She prayed. Then last Saturday during her class, their Pastor suddenly said these words -

"To all who are married, stay married."

Valerie was stunned. For a few seconds she felt numb. She was trying to collect her thoughts. Then the Pastor continued -

"Don't give up on whatever you're doing."

Alright. Valerie's thoughts were, "Our pastor just said a few simple words and I didn't need a dictionary to figure out what those words meant. How come I felt like those words filled up the entirety of my brain?"

So Valerie went on with her day carrying those thoughts tepidly. She even attended her classmate's thanksgiving party that afternoon. During the evening service, while she was listening to their Pastor speak, he said these words -

"Our God is a God of second chances."

That struck her again. Then the Pastor continued -

"Our God is a God of restoration."

Hmm... Later that night when Valerie was getting ready for bed, those words she heard from her Pastor kept repeating in her ears. She realized those were God's answers to her questions.

The LORD Almighty has sworn, "Surely, as I have planned, so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will stand." Isaiah 14:24

... Is the LORD's arm too short? You will now see whether or not what I say will come true for you." Numbers 11:23

This is just so simple and yet I felt like God was literally watching me from His throne.

On my way to the office this morning while going down the elevator I said, "Father, please let me ride the purple bus and reserve a seat for me behind the driver. Thank you. In Jesus' name I ask, amen." I wanted to take this bus because it's clean, it's big and their air conditioning system is good.

I waited. Then I saw the purple bus coming! I got in the bus and took the seat behind the driver. Wow! Lord, thank you!

Today is my nephew Andre's 5th birthday. My SIL said Andre was so happy with the gifts he received from all of us. Good thing he just asked me for a box of crayons. Whew! So I bought him the biggest box of Crayola there is. His dad, my bro who came back from Singapore, bought him a new Batman school bag, new pair of school shoes and a Batman raincoat. His mom bought him a PSP loaded with games. He asked my dad for a bike and he got it! Yesterday he got an award on his Sunday school for perfect attendance.

Happy Birthday, Andre!!!

My sister who's in HongKong with her husband for a vacation, called to say she bought me three camis which happened to be in the colors that I like - white, black and grey. Thanks, sis!

Hmm, oh, do you remember Queen Latifah's movie the Last Holiday? I saw it on HBO twice and that inspired me to start my own Book of Possibilities. I started mine last Saturday.
