Looking Back

Monday, December 28, 2009
Christmas is over and in just a few days, so is 2009.

2009 was a great year for me, better than 2008 I should say. It was a year of supernatural blessings and favors from the Lord.

When people around me kept grumbling on how bad the economy was, honestly, I didn't feel the pressure. God has provided for me supernaturally. I am in awe of how great and mighty God is.

When so many people are accumulating debts just to make both ends meet, God has been so good to have allowed me to pay up more than half of mine. He even allowed and provided for my travel. I was able to purchase stuff I didn't even imagine I could two years ago. I am simply amazed by His goodness. He kept me under His wings.

Truly, I am greatly blessed, highly favored and deeply loved by our Almighty God. In the past, this was just a fact that I know is true; but now, it is a fact that I've experienced and could attest is true.

2009 was also a year of transformation for me. A summary of what I've gone through in the past years ---

was the year I was broken to tiny pieces. I have redefined pain in ways beyond description.

was the year I was molded by God. I was like being marinated. I struggled. It was agonizing, but I also learned to submit to His will. This was the time I learned to let go and let God in its true sense. By doing so, I got to know Jesus in a whole new way.

Finally, 2009 was the year God transformed me into somebody even I, myself, could hardly recognize. I saw changes in me though I am still a work in progress. God is not done with me yet. But thank God I am no longer where I used to be. I don't even want to ever go back to how I used to be.

This coming 2010, I am full of hope that it will be much better than 2009. I'm believing God for more breakthroughs, favors and blessings. I'm believing God for answered prayers. I'm bolder in asking God what I want because I know He is able. I'm also believing that this coming year is a year of completion and perfection. And I claim this promise ---

"Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in us will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:6
Let's all continue to have an attitude of gratitude. Our God is bigger than any mountain we face.


Merry Christmas!

7... A Year Of Completion

Tuesday, December 15, 2009
Seven years ago this song was played while I was walking down the aisle. I specifically chose this because of the meaning of the song and it still stands true up to this day...

For my friends who don't speak my language, this is the English translation of the song. It's not in sync with the music, but I just want you to be able to somehow understand the essence of the song.


You are given by God (God sent)
The answer to my prayer
So that for all time
I'll love you every chance I have

You are the light of my life
The other half of my heart
Not for a moment will anyone be able to take your place
Now and forever, it'll just be you

You are the reason for everything I do
If ever I look forward to tomorrow
It is because of you
Forever is not enough
Because every moment, every second
I will love only you

"Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in us will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:6

God, Are You There?

Monday, December 14, 2009
Ever felt blah? Well, I did, on and off last week. I was like, "God, are you there?"

Yesterday afternoon during the service, this was what Pastor Julius said,

"What kind of darkness are you facing? Perhaps a loved one has left you.
Perhaps they're in another country. Perhaps they have abandoned you... Listen, Jesus will bring light to your situation. Eventually, you will overcome no matter how dark it is. No matter how dark it is. God fulfills His promises."
Going back to my question earlier... "God, are you there?"

He is. He knows everything. He had me on the palm of His hand.

It's Almost Christmas

It's almost Christmas!

Had my first Christmas party for this year last night. It was our branch's Christmas party in Greenhills held at the second level of Mann Hann Restaurant in San Juan. Food and gifts were overflowing! We had games and prizes too.

Red Spruce (That's our branch name)

But there are two things I wanted to share with you.

I've been wanting to have a beautiful lamp for my night table, but every time I had the chance to buy one, I kept putting if off. I felt like it wasn't really a priority. But God knows how much I wanted one and thank God I waited. Last night, we played the white elephant gift exchange. Boy, was it hilarious! Guess what item I ended up bringing home. A lamp! Woohoo!

That's not all. During our raffle event, I was eying to get either the foldable storage box/stool which would be perfect to keep my clients' files or the foldable picnic basket, you know just because. There were so many beautiful items on the table for giveaway. But my name was picked when it was the foldable storage box/stool that was being given away. Neat!

Later that night, while getting ready for bed, I thought of how God knows exactly what we need and knows exactly when to give it to us. His timing is always perfect!

Thankful Thursday

Thursday, December 3, 2009

This week I thank the Lord for:
  • Financial provision to pay off my credit cards.
  • All my accomplishments this year that I never thought I'd be able to accomplish so soon.
  • My good health and my good skin.
  • My parents.
  • My SIL who had my hair treated at their salon for free.
  • A closed sale. That means income for me.
  • A praise and worship CD from my friend Sylvia as a gift just because.
  • An email from a friend who said that my new laptop is on its way. Yey!
  • My friends.
  • Joy and peace in my heart while I wait for my breakthrough to come.
  • His promises that stands true no matter what.

What are you thankful for this week?
