It’s been a while since I wrote anything in my blog. I have been so busy every since I went full time. For those who are thinking to go full time in the ministry and you’re thinking that this will give you more time for other things – you’re wrong. Well, for me that’s the case.
Ever since I went full time I have been so engaged in the work that the Lord has entrusted to me. This week alone I lead a bible study last Thursday, spoke in a company on Friday, then the following morning I spoke in our fellowship for BPO employees and then another speaking engagement in the evening. It’s been an amazing journey for me. There are ups and downs but I’m just thanking God that He has given me the grace and strength to continue to move forward.
And there’s one thing that I’m really very grateful to God for right now. Despite my busy schedule, He gave me the strength and provision to finish the renovation and furnishing of my condo unit.
When I went full time, I surrendered all of my dreams. There was a big dip in my salary. I surrendered getting married at an early age. I surrendered my dream of being able to buy my own home and a lot of other things. I never really knew what to expect, but there is one thing that I know. I know that the Lord will provide and He will take care of me.
I remember there was a time where I only had Php150 pesos. I even wrote that in my diary. After leading a bible study suddenly a love gift was handed over to me. I didn’t expect that. I’m ok even if they don’t give me one. I’m not doing this for that. I’m doing this because this is what the Lord has tasked me to do and in that moment, I really understood that I do not have to worry. He will provide for me.
The completion of my condo unit is another testimony of God’s goodness in my life. It is a testimony of God’s faithfulness in my family and towards me. I don’t have a big unit, but it’s enough to live on my own and even start a family someday.
I’m writing this to let you know, that if you walk in the path that the Lord has called for you and you have a relationship with Him, He will take care of you. If we know how to give good gifts to our children, how much more our heavenly father?
Do not worry about what tomorrow may bring. Trust in Him. God provides. Learn to walk in obedience. The psalmist was right.
The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
