Life is a Choice

Sunday, September 22, 2013
I had a short chat with Sylvia, my best friend in Maryland, this morning.  We shared verses and prayer points like we used to; we talked about life both good stuff and bad; we talked about a lot of things.

I shared with her a verse which was texted to me by Izzy, a very good friend of mine, the other night. By the way, Ize, thank you for sharing with me that verse. It hit me in the heart like an arrow.
"So be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in obedience to all that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess." Deuteronomy 5:33 
Walk in obedience to ALL that the Lord has commanded you.  This isn't always easy.  Sometimes He gives instruction that wouldn't always make sense to the human mind.  When I get that from the Lord, I get all sorts of unsolicited advice from people who think they know better.  For these people, practicality is the name of the game.  There's nothing wrong with being practical, but when choosing between practicality and God's instruction, for me that's a no brainer.  I'd definitely go for His instruction.  This is not so with a lot of people and admittedly, sometimes I fail to hear His voice.  But when I do get it, there's no way anyone can talk me out of it.

Life is a choice. 

A Quick Update

Saturday, September 14, 2013
Finally!  Our August Champ is over.  Whew!  Now I have some free time to post and update my blog. How's everybody doing?  Hope y'all are fine.

Nothing much has happened except that I was busy with work.  I feel like I've been saying that all the time, but that's the truth.  Okay... Alright, alright!  I've also been a bit lazy.  There.  I said it!  But for now I'm back so I'm going to make the most out of it.

Aside from my regular check up, which by the way, I'm grateful to God for the good results, I was also actively posting on my cat's blog.  I just find it very cute and relieves me of stress.  It was my cat's first birthday yesterday.  Here are some photos.

Here's something really cute.


I will again be very busy WITH work by October and that will also be my birthday month.  Christmas is getting closer and closer.  I'm excited! Wow! Can you believe that 2013 is almost over?   Sigh... I miss Dad.

Well, this is it for now. Have a great weekend y'all!

Thankful Thursday

Thursday, September 5, 2013

I'm so happy to be able to participate on TT again.  It's been a while, but I'm still here very grateful to God for all the blessings He continues to shower me with.

I thank God for...
  • Being my Great Physician. I'm truly grateful that I'm getting better everyday.  
  • Providing me everything that I need.  There were times when I was financially challenged, but He did came through for me and always does. 
  • His abounding love, mercy and grace in my life.
  • Helping me hit my target this August champ.
  • His Words that assures me constantly of how beautiful and great His plans are for my life.
  • True friends.
  • My family.
  • Sushi
  • His faithfulness. What He promised years ago is still true today.  
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever." Hebrews 13:8
"For no matter how many promises God has made, they are 'Yes' in Christ. And so through him the 'Amen' is spoken by us to the glory of God." 2 Corinthians 1:20

What are you thankful for this week?

If God is for Me...

How time flies. It's the first day of the "ber" months and guess what.  I heard a Christmas song being played a while ago while I was doing some grocery shopping.  The first for this year.  And since Christmas is my favorite season of the year,  I'm excited!

I was talking to one of my closest friends, Sylvia, this morning over FaceTime and we were discussing about how faithful God is.  I told her that there were days when I wake up in the morning feeling very fearful and worried about the future. I was being bombarded with "what-ifs." But when I started praying in tongues, the fear disappears.  Sylvia reminded me how the enemy works and how he will use people to try to sway me off my faith. Sneaky little devil.
“Now then, stand still and see this great thing the Lord is about to do before your eyes!" 1 Samuel 12:16
When the enemy says something, we have to counter it with God's truth because we know that everything the enemy says is a LIE.

The Lord holds my future on the palm of His hands.  If He is for me, who can be against me (Romans 8:31)?

Anyway, it's my nephew's birthday today.  Happy birthday, Andre!  Here's a photo of my family taken last night at Saisaki (with the singers at the back).
