Thankful Thursday

Thursday, September 30, 2010

Lately, I've noticed that I haven't been spending enough time with Jesus and I'm not surprised at all when I started having anxiety attacks again.  Sadly, it's my skin that gets all the beating.  I get rashes mostly on my legs.  I saw my dermatologist last Monday and she said it's just how my body reacts with stress.  I prayed about it and asked God to make them disappear because certainly He wouldn't want me to look ugly next week when I'd be going out of town for an adventure with my friends doing white water rafting.  When I woke up this morning, I noticed the red patches have lightened. Yey!  Thank you, Lord!!!   I'm also thanking God for next week.  I'm excited!!!

I also thank God for my parents who still cook for me and send me food at home.  Thank you, Lord, for my parents.  Bless them, Lord.

Lastly, I thank God for His love and patience towards me.  He remains faithful and loving in spite of my imperfections.  I love you, Lord!!!

What are you thankful for this week?

Just this afternoon, I completely lost my temper when I picked up the phone and found out that it's busted again.  My service provider hasn't resolved my previous concern yet and it's taking them ages to act on it and now this one.  Everytime I call the customer service, I hear the same scripted, annoying response that they will make a follow-up report regarding my concern and that I would be contacted by their support group to properly address the problem. I would normally be okay with that response except that I totally lost it a while back.  I kept getting cut off.  I called them up eight times today using my cellphone and everytime somebody answers the other line he or she would ask me the same verification question and would ask me to tell them what my concern was.  Annoying!!!  So to cut the long story short, I screamed at them on the phone for having a lousy, pathetic service.

15 minutes later,  my cellphone rang.  It's the support group.  Finally!!!  They said that my concern has been solved. Thanks a lot!

Do I need to shout at the top of my lungs to get their butts moving???  If they can solve this in 15 minutes, why on earth did they let this problem last almost a month???  Crazy!

Anyway, I'm not proud of how I reacted earlier.  I guess I'm still very much human. Oh Lord, forgive me for I have sinned.

What's On Your Plate?

Wednesday, September 8, 2010
I've learned something today.  

A friend brought me cake this morning. We chatted a bit.  She told me about her aunt who recently came back from the States for a short vacation. Over dinner, her aunt kept asking her about her personal life --- how she feels now that she's 38 and still single.  My friend just gave a simple answer.  She said, "I'm not worried now, maybe tomorrow I will be.  What's important is I focus on what's on my plate now.  Right now, what's on it is that I have to finish training this week. (That's her job, she does training)."

She's right.  I realized that I always have to remember to look on what's on my plate. I can't get worried over something that's not on it.  It simply means that what's not on my plate is something I don't have control over, so why worry? 

Now I'm passing the question on to you.  What's on your plate?

Lord, I've been working very hard to reach the GOLD mark during this August Championship.  I thought for a while that I won't be able to make it anymore. I've got six days to go and I've ran out of prospective clients in my pipe line to work with. But tonight I got a call from my boss telling me not to worry anymore because I've already reached GOLD.  

Lord, thank you very much for making it happen.  I give you all the glory, Lord.  I praise and honor you.  In Jesus' mighty name, amen. 

What are you thankful for this week?
