Surviving Trials and Disappointments...

It's been a terribly tough week for me.

It all started when I had dysmenhorrhea last Friday. Everything just went downhill since then. As if the mild depression caused by my pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) and the abdominal cramps weren't enough, I had to go through one of the most painful weeks in my life.

Aside from my emotional struggles, I had to deal with other problems such as my brother's sickness, financial instability, and the Wizone publication. I felt overwhelmed by my problems and I was beginning to feel weak and scared.

But now I realize that that was just God's way of bringing me back to Him. I was beginning to go astray, almost made myself believe someone's lies and I was about to succumb into temptation. God's love is indeed greater than all the evils in this world. He took away all the things that mattered to me because He wants to replace them with GREATER things. Praise Him and His mysterious ways...

Amidst my difficulties, God sent His angels in the form of people to take care of me. And I will always be thankful that I have them in my life... Ems, Hannah, Laiza, Jose, Melanie, Te Zita, Sir Monching, Te Revs, Terry...and all the rest who've been so supportive of me.

When I went to Davao to bring my brother to the doctor, it was not only he who received healing, but also me. I spent an incredibly wonderful time with my brothers and I would remember that moment for the rest of my life. I also felt the love of my family in Davao - their mere presence has eased the pain and sadness that I felt.

I am thankful that God is working on me - making me stronger through trials and disappointments. Now, I truly believe that NOTHING is impossible as long as you stay ANCHORED to HIM. In Him, I put my TRUST.

Trully God won't ever abandon us because He unconditionally love us.Always remember God created people in His image and likeness so come he will hurt us when He created us in the most special way.Let Him live in our heart so that everything would be fine.
If you lack either of the three then I can say in my own prospect that you are not happy or contented in your life.It feels that life is not worth living for because those three things composes what LIFE it is.IF you feel emptiness then it would be better to have a silent and solemn conversation with God.I know everybody have the capacity to survive in any kind of problem-only those people who are not confident enough to face it, could barely waste the said opportunity, hence it would lead to his life destruction.BE CONSISTENT AND DON'T CHANGE.HAVE TIME TO LISTEN TO GOD'S CALL.HE ONLY WANTS YOUR ATTENTION.AS SIMPLE AS THAT.
