In my past Why do I want to be a Missionary?, I stated there that I was having a hard time talking my parents through it for they were both in abroad that time and I also said in my past blogs that all hardships, in God’s own time, will soon be paid off.
Mama went home last Wednesday. It was…
I had a funny and great conversation with a friend. In the middle of our conversation, we suddenly talked about relationships or in what we call the “LERV” topic. Very common topic. Yet very hard to talk about. When people ask me this kind of question, I just stop. Smile. And smile some more. I always say that I am happy with what status I have right now. I’m not on that page yet. Don’t get me wrong friends, I still see myself blissfully happy in the arms of the one I truly love, but just not yet.
Before, I always include that special someone to God. “Lord baka anjan na yung right man for me. Baka pwede mo na ko ipakilala.” or “Lord pakisabi kung anjan na sya para naman makapg-ayos ako.” I want to have that feeling of someone sweeping of my feet and will bring me color to my life. I always thought that I was left behind and everyone around me started posting their relationship status. Ako na lang ba ang wala? I start asking myself the same question. WHY?
But then again, as years pass by I realized there’s more to life that makes a person happy. Maybe the Lord wants me to experience life’s happiness one at a time. The LORD will not deprive me of the love I deserve. Today, He wants me experience life as single and happy person. I am SINGLE, I am HAPPY and available for the Lord. The only relationship status I can post is “In a relationship with God and Service.” (corny ba? hhaha) I love the life I have right now, with or without a boyfriend. That chapter on Love and relationships will soon come.
I believe that timing is everything and I believe that all things will fall right into place. All we need to do is wait. Good things happen for those who wait. Today I still pray for that person God created for me. A person that will bring crayons and help me color my world! (more cheesiness! hahaha). And I’m excited for that day to come. Until then I’ll settle for the little things that inspire me every day.
“I feel happy” is often associated with someone special.
It was just yesterday that two of my closest friends asked [diff. place and time] if I already have a boyfriend. I was shocked, considering that we are close; I would’ve told them if I have any.
NO RUSH. Honestly, I don’t have…
The other day I watched the movie “Facing the giants.” A story about a team of football players, the Shiloh Eagles, who start out on the bottom of the season and end up playing for the game of their lives. Fighting for a championship title against a team double their size. This movie made my eyes red for hours. But aside from swollen eyes, this movie taught me a lot about faith.
In many aspects of life, size matters a lot. Small ones get to go in front of the line. Tall ones often get to the NBA. And you’ll think life is sometimes unfair. You loose a job, failed an exam, abandoned by the one you love. One is weaker than the other. Weakness shows fear, and fear shows failure. But i believe God has always been a great planner of life. To travel on through life with a heavy baggage on your back and blind folded not knowing which way to go is pretty hard to do. But what we don’t often realize is that God always give us His full support all the way, and before we know it, we already reached our destination. “Ang grasya ay nagmumula sa disgrasya.” This is what Fr. Francis Lucas said when I attended IYC in CDO. Hindi ka bibigyan ng Diyos ng isang problemang di mo kayang lutasin. No problem is bigger than God. It is said in the bible 365 times - “Do not fear.” Means for every day of the year, God will always tell to have confidence in yourself and have faith in Him. David did it when he defeated Goliath. It’s just a matter of how much faith and belief you have in God.
God can do whatever he wants to do,and however he wants to do it.But he chooses to work in our lives because he loves us. Don’t let size get in the way of your faith. Or even your salary, or how the you look. God is bigger than all of these. Or even your problems. For no person is too short or too high to reach God’s love. And with God all things are made possible.

To my suprise, si kuya Mike yung closing worship for the YOTY congress. He said,God will never abandon you…When we worship, we are one. It only affirmed me, and siguro yung ibang viewer, na the livestreaming is a blessing for us. 195 delegates online after the congress. I realized, however,…
