3 Months

It’s been three months now.  Away from home.  I have appreciated Philippines more now that I am here.  But this place has been growing in me.  I know that if ever I would leave this place, I would miss this, too.

Everything that happens to us can teach us a lesson or two.  It’s just a matter of perspective.

Do not assume.  It’s better to be sure than to assume and make mistakes.  Have faith, yes, but do not assume i.e. have faith that God will give you someone who will love you–a reflection of God’s love for you but do not assume that this particular person is the one for you unless there is a confirmation.  What is that confirmation?  If that guy would actually lay down his intention for you. 🙂

Do not give up.  Starting over is hard.  But it will get easier somehow.

To a grateful person, nothing is wasted.  Avoid being proud.  Remind yourself about  humility.  There is a lesson you can learn from everything.  There is something good in everyone..

Without God, I am nothing.  Everything happens with God’s permission.  He knows what us happening in our lives. 🙂  It is His grace that all these favors have been given to me.

Wherever you are, if God is with you, you will be okay no matter what.  My loneliness and homesickness caused me to seek God more.  There are moments though that I feel okay.  How God loves me.  How God has been teaching me so many things–like how to love, like how to trust Him more.

Love these people.  God wants me to love the Australians by introducing Jesus to them.  I hope that there will be opportunities to do that and that I will finally overcome our language barrier so I can communicate with them more.

Walk by faith and not by sight.  The hand of God is upon my situation.

Surrender to God’s will because His plans are the best.  As Eli would say, “He is the Lord.  Let him do what he thinks is best.” (1 Samuel 3:18).

I anticipate what God is about to do in my life.  I am sure of the blessings He is about to give me–something great is coming my way and it’s going to be good 🙂
