Something About the Promise (SAP)

God never promise me to be in S.A.P.
Somehow in IT capability
In IT industry to be part
Is the seed He planted in my heart

Right even before I graduated
Data analyst is the job that He first granted
The desire never lost though I gain friends and confidence
DSI has become my second home for 2 years, more or less

Only faith is what I have when I entered Accenture
PCS was my second career where I started to venture
Humility and family in my 3years tenure
I consider my PCS experience as a milestone and fun adventure

The seed I never knew how will possibly grow
Only trust and faith which in my heart I let it flow
I seek His discernment before I actually claim
Until His perfect timing finally came

IJP* is the door that God opened for me.
I just believe in His Word and trust in Him faithfully.
Looking back on the things that I have to go through
God put everything together in which I never had a clue.

My work reminds me how faithful God is.
In every Words and all His promises.
In times at work of all pressures and stress
I’ll remind myself that my job is an answer to Something About the Promise.

*IJP or Internal Job Posting – is an internal job openings for the regular employees who are interested to move or shift from another field of career.

LOVE

I attended the Sunday service yesterday and our Pastor shared that he and his family started to put a theme in their faith goals*. Wherein he encourage us to apply it in our own faith goals where we can think of one word that we can use as an inspiration for our faith goals for this year. Pastor A shared his theme which is the word fight, wherein he will fight for his love for God, fight to spend more quiet time with the Lord, fight to find time to date her wife once a week, etc. While he was sharing I started to think and whispered to God what word shall I use as a theme for my faith goals this year. And while Pastor A was sharing the Topic for today’s WORD the word LOVE was highlighted in the projected screen as shown in the picture. From there, I have decided to use the word “LOVE” for my faith goals this year. As it says in Mark 12:28-31, Love God with all your heart and soul and love your neighbor as yourself. This year will not just to receive love from God or people around me but to give and share God’s love to other people. 2014 is love, love, love!!! ❤

Writing my faith goals each year is one of the things that I always look forward every start of the year because I am excited for the plans God has set for me for the year and to know His purpose and revelations everyday. This is also one of the things I look forward up to the end of the year as I go back to my list of faith goals and be thankful for each on the list that are already answered and those that are not and will soon be answered.

*Faith goal is somehow like writing your new year’s resolution except that this time you will set all your plans or goals or things that you desire to happen for this year and putting faith by praying and trusting God to help you fulfill each and every goal that you have according to His will.

Counting 0-1-2-3 to 2013

A New Year is about to start and it made me amazed and more grateful to God that I was able to pull this year through. Every experiences I had this year was a journey that I might not forever remember but will surely contribute to what I will become as I continue to run this race called life. I can definitely say that I am blessed to have encountered every challenges I have to face because through it I was able to meet new friends and learn to value the people that are already and will still be part of my life. I wouldn’t be able to learn my lessons through every circumstances that I have to deal and I believe those are just instrument to mold me to accomplish God’s purpose.

Before I actually start to list down all my faith goals for 2o14 I would like to count my blessings and things that I am thankful for the year 2013 which is about to end.

1. Relationship with God. My relationship with the Lord has been my source of strength, wisdom, hope, peace in my heart and a real great joy not just this year as well as the previous years and I do believe that God will continue to be with me in the future and the years to come because Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). God never fails to send His message and reveal Himself to me in every way; from the ever reliable and consistent God’s Word, Bible, through using other people as an instrument to send Father God’s message and for allowing me to be His instrument in so many ways, and to His own unique ways like for this year the name of the taxi owner to a simple note from an unknown person in my notebook but really gave me great reminder and hope during tough times and a lot of amazing revelations. My sincerest gratefulness to my Dear Lord for unfailing love and hope, unending protection and guidance, surprising revelations and discernments, continuous blessings and gifts for this year.photo 3

2. Family. Each year I am grateful to God that He gave me a supportive and caring parents. Sometimes even my craziest ideas they support me. One story I can share that happened this year, one day I was so stressed and feeling so messed up with my job and I told my mom I wanna quit my job and she answered go ahead. I was thinking if my mom was just trying to reverse psychology me but eventually I realized that my parents can see my sleepless nights and my health is also affected though I appreciate my parents concern but have to deal with my career in a more mature way that I cannot just leave just that. Anyway, it’s in a different bullet and I would just like to share one of my craziest conversation with my mom ‘coz there’s a lot crazier with my dad. I love my crazy family!!! I am also grateful with my extended family; my equally crazy cousins and friends who became my siblings which I thought I never had before which God never fail to fill those missing pieces in me. And to my second parents tito’s and tita’s who has always been there for me as well. 😉

3. Friends. I’ve been blessed to have met new friends in my present company, HP, who happens to be my colleagues. Though this has been one of realization last year that I am a team player and not a one man team though I was able to do so last year with God’s help. This year has taught me how to value more my friends especially the one that are for keeps. God has put situations and circumstances this year which I’ve learned a lot from them and I realized how to cherished and appreciate the friendship that they have given me. Thank you Guys for being part of my life and for putting a spice on it. photo 5

4. Good health. I have appreciated each and every blessing God has put in my way but sometimes I don’t give so much attention of my health. I must be thankful to God that a headache is the worst “illness” came across me last year which I end up to have a reading glasses as the Doctor prescribed me to get one. And the Word has constantly reminding me that “our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit” (1 Corinthians 6: 19). One more thing is my discipline in my eating habit. I don’t want to starve myself to death just to gain the skinny weight everybody wants to have. I’ll include in my faith goals and resolution next year is to respect and discipline my body and health.

5. Travel. Ever since I started working I got a chance to see a lot of breath taking places and enjoy the beautiful creation of Father God in my country, Philippines. Few years back my goal is to visit at least one province of each regions in the Philippines but God is a limitless Father who can exceed what everyone can imagine and dreams for themselves. I was able to visit maybe not all the provinces but more than what I have imagined for myself and this dream has been accomplished last 2011. And for 2013 one of my dream goal was answered and that is to travel out of the country and not just to one country but I as able to visit two Asian countries with my girl friends who has been there with me for almost 2 decades. With this trip I did not just enjoy the places that we visit but I have learned to appreciate more of my friends. I thank the Lord that I was able to visit the modern city of Singapore and the country that seems like Philippines, Malaysia.

6. Work. My work has been a real challenge to me since I left my 5-years previous company and it was a real tough adjustment since last year. This year I can still consider that it was tough year for me at work but I can definitely say I am more confident to face every trials because of my new found friends through my colleagues. For this year, I am more looking forward to fight a real good fight and to give my best shot at work.

7. Gifts. Through those challenges I had this year at work God uses it as an instrument for me to be able to reveal another gift that I never thought I could possibly have. Writing my thoughts was one of revelation before I left my previous job and this year another gift was revealed and it was the gift of writing a poem. It was just amazing whenever I finish a poem because it was like a beautiful artwork reveal how each and every word was made together and create a message that is perfectly inspired by God, family, friends and a lot of instrument God can possibly gave me.

8. Share the blessings. I have been blessed to be part of companies who has a heart to give back and reach out. I thank the Lord that we have a lot of ways to reach out to people and be able to serve in my own simple ways. This year has been a truly amazing year and I am very grateful to God that I was able to become part and instrument to share His love and give back. Thank you Lord for being part of CSR!!!

I may not be able to list everything I received because for sure God’s outpouring blessings are immeasurable. And looking back it made me realized that I really had a blast last year. Let me end this by quoting Ernest Hemmingway.

“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”

2013: What A Journey It Has Been

2013 poem

A whole new year is about to say hello.
2013 will bid goodbye and soon forever go.
In less than two weeks another year will become part of my past.
The learnings, memories and experiences will surely last.

Today is my last day at work for the year,
I hope the end of holiday will no longer get near.
Soon I will go back to reality,
I’ll just enjoy this moment and the season’s tranquility.

It seems like this year just went by that fast.
But looking back 2013, I might say it’s a blast!
Challenges and learning that taught me a lot.
Blessings and answered prayers which I’m grateful to God.

I really don’t know what the future holds
but lifting everything to God I’m sure it’s a hundred folds.
I’m just looking forward for what tomorrow will bring.
I just hope and pray the song in my heart will soon sing.

Thank you folks who became part of my 2013.
Just like the song goes “What a journey it has been.”
I know I might not have you forever
In my heart I will leave you never.

I don’t know why
But it feels like goodbye
Maybe goodbye 2013
because I’m moving forward to 2014.

HE Who Found ME

HwM

I’ve been blessed yet I become ungrateful
I’ve been full yet I become forgetful
My heart is heavy and I feel empty
I’ve been searching but I can’t find ME

When I started to become hopeless
And planned to become jobless
James reminds me
“don’t try to get out anything prematurely.” (James 1:4 MSG)

Having a heavy heart is never easy
But lifting everything to God is what He only requires me
In the book of Hebrews, He says He will never leave me
And yes He never did neither forsake me

I fell on my knees and my heart was humbled
I started to pray and forgiveness is what I mumbled
I felt a warmth embrace from my dear Creator
He is and will forever be my loving Father

Searching for myself from the very beginning
Is the reason why I found myself crying
Thank God He found me
That is when I started to love how He made me

When God made you He must have been thinking of….

whenGodmadeyou

When I first heard the song When God Made You by Newsong I felt so kilig* and I uttered to myself I wish I could sing this with my special someone on my wedding day. Well, I think this song was really created for a couple and mostly heard on a wedding day but just this morning while humming and singing some lyrics that I remembered from the song;

♪♫”When God made you, He must have been thinking about me.”♪♫.

God made me realized that this song is reminding me how special I am in God’s sight, how special we all are in our Heavenly Father’s eyes that even when He was creating the people around us (our parents, siblings, friends, relatives, boyfriend or husband, girlfriend or wife or even the people that we will just bump into) He was still thinking of us. Imagine that!? I can’t help myself but share this wonderful feeling and put it into writing on my blog.

We are not just created to make our own dreams come true but other’s dreams as well. You might think or ponder that your life is just a waste and no one loves you or cares for you. I’m telling you God loves you (John 3:16) and He knows you so well that even the number of strands of your hair are known to Him (Matthew 10:30-31). That’s how special you are to Him. He created everything for you.

Think of this;
You are a gift perfectly made from God to other creations.You might be the girl of others dream or the guy she’d been waiting for. You might be the answer to other’s prayer because when God made you, He must have been thinking about others too…

Share your life and spread God’s love.

To spread more love here is the lyrics of the song When God Made You.

♪♫ WHEN GOD MADE YOU lyrics
by Newsong featuring Natalie Grant

(Guy)
Its always been a mystery to me,
How two hearts can come together,
And love can last forever.
But now that I have found you I believe,
That a miracle has come when God sends the perfect one.
So gone are all my questions about why,
And i’ve never been so sure of anything in my life

Chorus:
Oh I wonder what God was thinking,when he created you.
I wonder if He knew everything I would need,
Because he made all my dreams come true.
When God made you, He must have been thinking about me.

(Girl)
Ooo ooo,I promise that wherever you may go, wherever life may lead you,
With all my heart I’ll be there too.
And from this moment on I want you to know,
I’ll let nothing come between us, and I will love the ones you love.
(guy)o gone are all my questions about why (girl echoes):about why

Duet:
Oh I wonder what God was thinking when he created you,
I wonder if He knew everythin I would need,
Because He made all my dreams come true.
When God made you He must’ve been thinking about me.

Bridge:
He made the sun He made the moon,
To harmonize a perfect tune,
One can’t do without the other they just have to be together.
And that is how I know its true,
Your for me and i’m for you and my world
Just cant be right without you in my life

Chorus
(Guy) He must have heard every prayer I’ve been praying (girl echo)
I’ve been praying (both)He must’ve knew everything I would need

When God made you, He must’ve been thinking about me.♪♫

*kilig is a tagalog word means to tremble or shudder in delight
