Hello, 2011!

At the beginning of 2010, I wrote this:


And once more, I am amazed at how God fulfilled His promise. :)

I remember what brought about the post. Sal and I, as usual, were at the veranda the previous night, talking mostly about heartaches and what we wanted to see happening in our lives. Whenever talk turned to that topic, we would lift our eyes to heaven and exclaim, 'Looooord! Alam Niyo na po!!!' Hahaha!

And after that talk I remembered browsing through multiply posts and seeing Sarah's Day 1 photo of the day, a verse from the Bible which also happens to be my life verse. So I copied the pic and claimed it as an answer to our veranda moment.

Fast forward to today and I can definitely say God does answer prayers :)

He knew the plans He already laid out for me even from the beginning.

He knew what I wished for and decided that His will for me coincided with my desires (and vice-versa) and decided it is the right time to give them to me.

I, too, know that God has been orchestrating all the events of my life - from the mundane ones to the major ones - to bring me to where I am now.

I know that not only is He in control of my today, He already has the future mapped out for me.

So I leave the planning for 2011 to Him, believing in faith that all my worries and fears are inconsequential if I only trust in Him :)

Hello, 2011! :)

  3. hehehe oonga.... kaya ang astig ng twentyten mo. im sure mas astig yan dis year.

    ako nmn ang unang unang verse na naman ko sa taong ito gamit ang bible na bigay ng 'ninang' ko is ung "I am the Lord, your Holy One, Israel's creator, your King. This is what the Lord says - he who made a way through the mighty waters, who drew out the chariots and horses, the army and reinforcements togetjer, and they lay there, never to rise again, extinguished, snuffed out like a wick: "FORGET THE FORMER THINGS; DO NOT DWELL ON THE PAST. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland. - Isaiah 43:15-19 hehehe...

    I did forgive last year, so now not dwelling to the past nman. hehehe. =D

    im hopeful for this new decade. =D ndi lang for myself but for all of us. hihihihi...
