Thankful Heart

"Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done".

1 Chronicles 16:8

This past few months, it felt like I have nothing to thank about but ofcourse it's not true! I am very much thankful for my family & friends, our health and well being, my job and the lists goes on...

One specific praise report I want to share is regarding my job. For the past month, I have been conducting trainings to our staffs on an application that I am still studying myself. My confidence level to teach is low plus the stress and pressure from the boss's. I have been praying and asking people to pray for me on this. Last week, was a very busy week, every day I have trainings scheduled both morning and afternoon sessions. The last session for the week had an added pressure because our CEO and some of the "not so friendly" staffs were attending.

I prepared my materials the night before, farmed a little (I need a break of course...hehehe) and prayed before sleeping. The next day, I woke up late! Panic a little...but remembered to pray and to trust in him with ALL my heart and that He is in control...

Arrived in the office, did the set up, prayed and reviewed some of the topics I felt that the Lord is leading me to take note.

Show time! Had some minor difficulties with my projector but the training went smoothly, the topics that I reviewed last minute was the answers to the questions that was raised in the during the training then the evaluation forms were filled up after the session. All marks were good & very good! (di sa pag bubuhat ng sariling bangko hehehe...) but the cherry on the cake was the staff that I was wary of making the training difficult and giving me negative marks commented "very good" not only to me but to other people as well.

To explain further the miracle on this...hahaha this girl lives to make my life miserable ( well not just mine hehehe) last time when I was dealing with her hehehe... That day, she gave me very good marks, smiled and wave at me when we pass by (as if we're BFF) and told others that the training was very good. It was such a surprise and I can truly say that it's a miracle hehehe

It was really Jesus's work...All praises and glory to Him! To all those who prayed with me...Thank you very much!

"For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them." Mathew 18:20

It's been a long time...

I haven't posted for quite some time... I just can't type my thoughts into words hahaha

June was a quiet month at work. From the back to back trainings last month, I thank God for the rest hehehe... I had my own training (which was long overdue). It was good and I learned a lot. Hoping to able to use it with my trainings this coming months.

My mojo was so high and was able to scrap 9 LOs. I'm Happy with the results. My usual white space and flowers and buttons. What's new is that I've been doing handcutting & tearing in most of my LOs! unsual for me and really tested my patience hahaha

Gym? nah....I've been trying and planning to go but nope...I was not able to do so... As my friend says...It takes diligence, determination & patience! Looking forward to the gym this month though. With 2 of my colleagues joining, it should be fun :D

Harry Potter is showing on the 16th! I guess everybody has booked their tickets early coz when Sister S tried booking, no more good seats left! My friend is trying to book from a different cinema...we'll see if she's be able to get good seats hehehe

I'm experiencing a new feeling...It's really good! I hope it last though hahaha... I use to feel like a zombie. For the first time in a veeeerrry long time, I'm not sleepy! hahaha...well thats thanks to my veeeeryyy long sleep yesterday. Some people might think that it's too much to the point of laziness? *LOL* but I think it's what my body needed. Today I woke up feeling refreshed, I did not sleep on my way to work and I don't feel sleepy at all. Wow! It's really a good feeling :-)

Well I'm going to put this good feeling into use and go back to work hahaha...

Don't Ever Give Up! -- a msg for the tough times

One day I decided to quit...
I quit my job, my relationship, my spirituality... in fact I wanted to quit my life. I went to the woods to have one last talk with God. "God", I asked, "Can you give me one good reason not to quit?"

His answer surprised me...

"Look around", He said. "Do you see the fern and the bamboo?"
"Yes", I replied.
"When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them. I gave them light. I gave them water. The fern quickly grew from the earth. Its brilliant green covered the floor. Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo.

In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful. And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo. He said. "In year three there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would not quit.

In year four, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed. I would not quit." He said. "Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth. Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant. ..

But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall. It had spent the five years growing roots. Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive.
I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle."
He asked me. "Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots"? "I would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on you." "Don't compare yourself to others."

He said. "The bamboo had a different Purpose than the fern.
Yet they both make the forest beautiful." "Your time will come", God said to me. "You will rise high"
"How high should I rise?" I asked.
"How high will the bamboo rise?" He asked in return.
"As high as it can?" I questioned.
"Yes." He said, "Give me glory by rising as high as you can."

I left the forest and brought back this story.
I hope these words can help you see that God will never give up on you.

Never, Never, Never Give up.
Don't tell God how big the problem is,
tell the problem how Great God is!
Heavens door opened this morning,
God asked me... My CHILD...
what can I do for you?" and I said "Protect and bless the one reading this message.
God smiled and answered ... "request granted ............

This message is now in your hands.
What will YOU do with it?
send this to at least 10 people so they too will have their
lives in God's hands
You never know when GOD is going to bless you!!

Good things happen when you least expect them to !!!!!!!!

Desert Song - Hillsong

Verse 1:
This is my prayer in the desert
And all that's within me feels dry
This is my prayer in the hunger in me
My God is a God who provides

Verse 2:
And this is my prayer in the fire
In weakness or trial or pain
There is a faith proved
Of more worth than gold
So refine me Lord through the flames

And I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon forged against me shall remain

I will rejoice
I will declare
God is my victory and He is here

Verse 3:
And this is my prayer in the battle
And triumph is still on it's way
I am a conqueror and co-heir with Christ
So firm on His promise I'll stand

All of my life
In every season
You are still God
I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship

Verse 4:
This is my prayer in the harvest
When favor and providence flow
I know I'm filled to be empited again
The seed I've recieved I will sow

Confession of a Shopaholic

Yesterday a friend msg me if I want to watch a movie. I immediately said sure, then asked which one she wants to watch. When she said "Confession of a Shopaholic", I suddenly hesitated hehehe. Reason being is that I tried to read the book but was not able to even read up to chapter 2 hahaha...It was just too familiar *LOL* Anyway, we booked a ticket for 7:10pm show and agreed to meet at the mall. It was so hilarious and feel good that I'm glad I watched it. There's this line that her dad told her about her debt. " The world has so many debts, and it still survives, you can survive this" hehehe...So for all those who are having debt problems...cheer up! It can be hard but you already know the solution, just do it! You'll survive also hehehe...

His Hand is Outstretched

For the Lord of hosts has purposed, and who can annul it? And His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back (Isaiah 14:27, AMP).

TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria
As believers, you and I have an advantage. We don’t have to go through life just depending on our own talent, our own ability, our own strength. The Scripture talks about how God’s hand is outstretched toward His people. That means there is a supernatural power behind every believer. God’s outstretched hand will help you accomplish dreams that you thought were impossible. His outstretched hand will cause you to get well even when the medical report says there is no way. The outstretched hand of God will help us to prosper even when the economy is down.Let this sink down into your heart today. All through the day, imagine God’s hand outstretched toward you. It is a hand of healing, a hand of favor, a hand of restoration. No matter what you may be facing, you have to realize there is a force for you that is greater than any force that will ever be against you. You’re attitude should be, “I am not settling where I am. I know I have an advantage. As a child of the Most High, I know God’s hand is outstretched toward me.”

Father in heaven, thank You for Your outstretched hand of protection and provision for me. I choose to lay aside every fear and every concern knowing that You will make a way for me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

New Year 2009

Time flies…I promised myself that this year I will be more diligent in updating my blog…oh well…I guess the saying promises are made to be broken is true to this case hahaha…

January came & gone…I went home to Philippines 31 December 08. Celebrated New Year with the family, Yey! It was such a blast to be home again. Making me wish I can stay and don’t go back.

I attended my college friends wedding (Malou & Ejet) at Tagaytay. They asked me to be a secondary sponsor and ofcourse I said “Yes”. I witness their lovestory from the start and it’s really touching to see them finally tie the knot. Best Wishes to both of you! Hope to see little Ejet or Malou soon! Hehehe…

Before I know it, it’s time to go back to reality…Papa & mama sent me off to the airport…after checking so early and waiting for so long for boarding, the airline had overbooked my flight and had to off load some of us. Well the good thing is, the hotel they check us in was good and I have a free round trip ticket valid for 1 year…woohoo!

Work is good…new things to learn & do. Though I still receive some of those annoying emails from let’s not mention them *LOL*. Thank God I won’t have to deal with them anymore.

I met a new friend. I find her really cool. Her attitude and outlook in life is something I admire in a person. She’s Pro Active and Go Getter. You will just feel this high energy when she’s around. Her work is also very interesting. God willing I will get to experience it someday…*wink*

And yes, I joined the gym! Another New Year resolution (I hope I can keep!). After trying the sexy hip hop/Latin class and psyching my self…I signed up *LOL*. I will definitely update it in this blog of any improvements *LOL*

Nothing really big was planned during the CNY holiday. Sleep, eat…sleep some more…hahaha just kidding…I met up with Cute#1 & Mader L to discuss the preparation for the party that we are organizing. The theme is Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Guess what? The mom’s budget is $5K! Oh well…some people are really loaded and willing to spend it on their child’s 1st birthday party.
