It's Just A Matter Of Time

Friday, November 28, 2008
I've been out of touch with blogsville for three weeks I think, was it three weeks? I don't even remember anymore. I've been busy with work, with tutoring and with selling branded footwear in time for Christmas. I've also been busy with church activities. There are so many things going on.

I've been watching the news lately and what's happening in other parts of the world is terrible. Like what happened in India and what's happening in Thailand now, it's awful. It's no different here in the Philippines. Graft and corruption are like the norm nowadays. It's chaotic!

In our personal lives, it can sometimes be chaotic too. We can even hear comments like, "It's hopeless." But is it really hopeless? I believe it's not. Let's not forget that we serve a powerful God who is faithful to all His promises. If you think you are ready to give up on your situation, I'd suggest you reconsider. Don't give up on God. He will
surely make all His good plans come to pass in your life. It's just a matter of time.

Just Busy

Monday, November 24, 2008
My schedule the last two weeks have been really crazy. My boss is leaving for Malaysia this week so I hope I'll be more relaxed by then. I just had like an hour free today that's why I was able to post something here. But not enough time to weave my thoughts for a decent post.

I'll see you guys before this week ends. God bless y'all!

A Spider Named Charlotte

Monday, November 10, 2008
I'm sure you know this movie. Believe it or not it was my first time to watch this movie last Saturday and it wasn't even intentional. I didn't even know the title of the movie until late that evening. But I believe that everything happens for a reason.

Early that morning I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I felt a bit off and I was emotionally tired. I was impatient (again!) See, I am praying and believing God for things to happen in my life but I wasn't seeing any result. I told God so many things in a not-so-good tone. One of the things I asked God was, "Now what?!"

As I got up to get ready for my class that morning, I flipped the channels on TV and decided to settle for HBO. There was a talking pig. Great, I thought. A barn with a bunch of talking animals. I didn't really care about the movie, I was in fact busy making my to-do list for that day. The TV was just making sounds of what seemed like people conversing, but didn't quite understand what they were talking about. I wasn't really watching. Then something caught my attention. Something Charlotte, the spider said - "good things come to those who wait."

I immediately stopped what I was doing and thought about what Charlotte said. God spoke to me through a spider! I realized that I could have just watched any other show that morning, but I guess God said HBO. So HBO it was. And of all the lines delivered by those talking animals, that line which Charlotte uttered was the only sentence that I heard clearly.

And before I got out of the house, I got an incoming text message from a friend. It says, "How faithful is the Lord? "I will not leave you until I have finished giving you everything I promised you.' Genesis 28:15"

Clearly, the Lord had spoken.

PS: I noticed these words just now while I was writing this post. God does speak to us in ways unimaginable. I'm in awe.

Thankful Thursday

Thursday, November 6, 2008

This week I thank God for:
  • My good health. An officemate had her blood pressure checked earlier this afternoon and the result wasn't good. I got curious so I also had mine checked too. The doctor said PERFECT.
  • Financial provision. A friend of mine called to tell me that God told her to give me back the amount I've spent in removing the carpet in our bedroom and round it off to a thousand. And she did give me that. What's my point? My point is - the money came from nowhere. I wasn't expecting that from anyone and yet God decided to give it to me anyway. He does provide in ways we don't expect.

  • Friends. I have friends who committed to be my prayer partner and prayer warrior until they see results in what I've been asking God for.

  • An opportunity for me to earn extra at least from now until December.

  • My (birth)family for their support and understanding.
Lord, thank you for all your blessings in my life this week. Lord, may you use me to bless others as well. In Jesus' name, amen.

For more Thankful Thursday, visit Iris over at Grace Alone. Have a happy weekend ahead y'all. God bless! =D
