God’s voice is sweet and God’s grace is abundant

This is my other story.

Way back 2015, I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior. As a graduating college student in 2017, my spiritual life got challenged, on top of all other struggles I had in the other aspects of my life. Consequently, my perspective changed after college. I felt pressured to find a stable job and a dream romantic relationship.

Oppss! Those were without God’s permission. I was really in a hurry of everything. I was lost again into the wilderness, until I found someone who caught my attention through online dating – still no permission from the Lord.  I even failed to ask advise from any of my Christian friends and family.

Realizing that I have made unwise decisions, I started trying to go back to his presence, but I continued to lose my personal relationship with the Lord because the condemnation was really hunting me. I have poured out all my attention to this man whom I gave my heart, time, effort and all for almost 3 years.

This first week of August 2020, my guilt and my conscience kept knocking into my heart.  I felt very uneasy, knowing in my heart that for a long time, I have done things that are not pleasing before God. My heart was really heavy. I couldn’t even do my work properly.

 

I was bothered.

I realized that there was something missing in my life. I needed the Lord because I was becoming a slave to sin. I keep on sinning and my guilt was really banging into my heart which lead to me being nervous all the time.  I just couldn’t hold it anymore.

I started feeling the heaviness after my birthday last 20th of July. I knew there was something really wrong. I made wrong choices and I kept making it.

I finally called my cousin who was also a Christian and I underwent an admission. I was able to confess everything, and humbly and consciously accept my failure in keeping the Lord’s statutes. I couldn’t hold my tears. I kept on crying as I told my cousin everything about that happened to me in the past 3 years – including how I almost lost my relationship to my cousin. I knew that everything that happened were just so wrong.

And after my admission, I asked for God’s forgiveness. And as if he has always been waiting, I heard God’s voice saying that I needed to let go of the person who was occupying so much of my heart – someone that I valued dearly.

It was hard to accept but I knew I heard God’s voice. I kept on crying while pondering how I could possibly let go of this man whom I love dearly. I even got engaged to him and have planned to get married this year in September. I then knew that it was also God’s intervention to postpone the wedding because of the pandemic. I’ve always known God can use all things for His purpose.

To give you an idea, we are in a long distance relationship. We also had differences in culture and spiritual beliefs that he is not willing to compromise. Having a renewed relationship with the Lord, I myself was also no longer willing to compromise.

I used to keep asking advice on how could handle our relationship, and I am so very grateful that I didn’t hear any negative advice from my family. They respected my decision to stay in that relationship, trusting that we could handle it well. Nevertheless, I still personally know in my heart that I was struggling, especially that there were things that I really couldn’t give him because I knew it was wrong and we were miles away.

I continued to stay in that relationship for a week, while trying to rebuild my personal relationship with the Lord.  We even had a fight because there were things we could never understand and there was also a language barrier.

Before, I chose to stay trying to fit in and understand everything but now, I can’t anymore. Seeing him, I know that he needs someone near him, because I can’t give him the care that he needs physically. He said he is fine but I see him struggling in our situation and it also hurts me.

So with God’s wisdom, I decided to let him go. Yes, I finally got the courage let him go last August 19, 2020. I heard God loud and clear and I was ready to follow Him.

As a Christian, marriage is sacred. Ephesians 4:2-3 says, “ With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace.” Our spirit cannot be united because we don’t share the same belief. We were not at peace, I was not at peace.

We needed to ask ourselves before entering into a relationship, “Are you the person you are willing to marry?” and my answer to myself was “No.” We both were not ready. We both have a lot to work on ourselves. We cannot put that responsibility on each other. It has to be between us, individually, and God. God’s words sounded simple, “break up”, “let him go” but it was never easy. It was very painful. It took all of me to let go of the man I love.

It was not as easy as putting a period, end a sentence, start with another and move on. He couldn’t accept it at first. He asked me if I could give him a chance and not to give up on us. He wanted us to grow together but I told him if he really wanted, we should have done it from the very beginning.

It is not only him who is hurting still. Even at this moment, while I am writing this, I can still feel the pain.

But God gave me strength and peace. It was because of God that I was able to push through. I am holding on to 2 Corinthians 12:9 which says, “My Grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”  We are both in pain right now but I will continue to pray that God will guide him and if God wills, God saves.

 

I am now in the process of continuing my personal relationship with the Lord.

I am very active in attending bible study with my group leader whom I prayed for and God gave to me. I am also attending the church online for me to grow and intercede, a ministry where my heart is.

Even if I am broken, God still uses me to connect to people. I know God wants to have a personal relationship with them too. Now, I am a bit busy doing group meeting once a week online, through phone calls, or by meeting physically with social distancing.

And this is what I learned: God’s kingdom must continue no matter what season we are going through. All that has happened in the past, I have surrendered them to God, and from now on, I pray that I may live a life that honors  Him. The glory and honor is only for Him not mine.

Because I heard God’s voice and because of His grace, I am able to understand the process of obeying Him no matter what season I am going through. I am also now very happy and at peace continuing to pray for others.

I am now in the process of knowing the Lord more by studying His words for it is the bread of my life and soul.

I am no one but I have a story to tell the world

This is my story

                                “Who I am right now has a story and purpose behind it.” – J.J
As my  dreams start with this;

I am at the point that I am about to give up. I’m losing hope. I don’t know where my hope is.  I do really think that I don’t have any chance to go to college anymore. Just imagine that I am already two years out of school youth. Well, I graduated elementary on time and my high school but sadly, I can’t go to college because my parents cannot afford it. So, after my high school. I stopped for two years. I was just at my Aunt’s house helping her. And then, my heart crashed seeing my batch mates they’ve already graduated college and yeah! They can pursue their dreams.  I do felt that I am left behind.

One time, I cried out to GOD and asked Him that LORD is my life stays like this?  Is this really the end of everything? Is this really Your plan for me? and I said that LORD I do really want to go to college. I wanted to finish it.

Hearing those negative people around me that I’ll just end up married and that’s it nothing else. That’s how the other people always told me before.

After that moment, I felt the HOPE really came  back into my heart because God gave me this verse;
JEREMIAH 29:11
  “ FOR I KNOW THE PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU, DECLARES THE LORD, PLANS TO PROSPER YOU AND NOT TO HARM YOU, PLANS TO GIVE YOU HOPE AND A FUTURE”
Yeeeahh! So, after a few weeks, I started to inquire in CENTRAL MINDANAO UNIVERSITY even though I don’t have any assurance to get in that college. ( It’s my dream school since elementary )

Thank GOD. In the next day, my father called me to come back home because there’s an opportunity for him to work abroad and he will send me to college.

And me like Whaaaattt? LORD Is this true? I cried out to HIM with a grateful heart. It’s really unexpected and I cried with joy in my heart.

Then, I got my entrance exam in CMU sadly, my result is failed but because I do have only 5 points left the Administration put me in as PD students. PD means the administration will be the one to pick your course. ( Anyway, way back in my high school year I passed the entrance examination in CMU but the exam result has only 1-year validity).

Fortunately, the Administration has the right to choose my course and they put me in the FOOD BUSINESS MANAGEMENT  Major in FOOD PROCESSING OPTION.  Well, I am so thankful to GOD because HE did put me in a course where I am really fitted in.

YEhheey! My college starts with full of hope and joy and with the banner of my favorite verse the JEREMIAH 29:11.  Thank you LORD for all the wisdom and knowledge cause I really thought that I can’t understand the lessons anymore because of my stagnant knowledge hehe, but I am very grateful because I always have an ACADEMIC SCHOLAR because of my  very good grades and then it helped to my parents because once you’re an academic scholar your tuition will be less.

Indeed, Our Lord is faithful because in our test permit there’s always a verse of Jeremiah 29:11. Every hope and joy in my heart well, I always passed the examinations.

Very truly our God is always faithful. Yes, He let me graduated on time but not just that also my parents even though they’re far from each other they getting more sweeter and sweeter every day.  ( As they get older they get sweeter ).

Yes, there’s no perfect family but GOD provided us with what we have right now because I know what we have before like when I’m studying during night time I got my eyebrow burned because we’re just using a candle. We don’t have electricity before.

That’s why to my mother and my father. Thank you so much for everything. I may not be a good daughter sometimes but I tried and still, I will try to be one for the both of you. And to my brother even though we’re like cats and dogs but I am here for you. You’re one of the reasons too why I got this far because I want to buy a drum set for you and also a DJ set soon HEhe.

I am very thankful to the people who were part of my journey who helped me and taught me financially, morally, Spiritually, mentally, and physically.  Family, Relatives, Friends, Classmates, Friends of Friends. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I am so grateful to have you all. I can’t mention you all but in my prayers, you are all mentioned but with my prayers is how I can pay for all your goodness. 

I bring back all the glory and honor to GOD.
I graduated college last June 2017.
4 years of endurance.
Do not lose hope.
Nothing is impossible.

Who Gives The Increase?

A little reminder

1 Corinthians 3:5-15 (NKJV)

5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers through whom you believed, as the Lord gave to each one? 6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. 8 Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor.

9 For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building. 10 According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. 11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. 14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.

As I’ve meditated on this Word last October 2020, it can be applied in everything we do as an army of God. It can be applied in discipleship-making, in our daily work, or even in our own relationship with God and in everything we do.

It is God alone who does the increase in everything we do and only Jesus Christ can transform someone’s life. All we have to do is to obey God’s voice being yielded by the Holy Spirit.

So, let’s work in everything according to God’s will because there will be a day that God will test each one’s work.

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31 (NKJV)

What happens after July?

What happens to me after July?

They said that life must go on no matter what. Yes! This is true but how?

Last August, my grandmother died because of wounds in her eyes it became cancerous. The same month also my grandfather (grandma’s brother) died due to covid19-case. And last month my close relative Alita died also due to covid19-case. In expand of two months, my emotional, mental,physical, and spiritual went down.

 Due to that, I am not even willing to go to my work even thinking of resigning. Everything of me went down resulted to get sick.

 My quiet time with God got affected also, even with my other commitments and responsibilities got affected.  And it leads me to cry out to God everything and prayed to give me rest because I just can’t bear the pain. 

God answered my prayer I got more than two weeks of leave at work but I am sick. So, I got home quarantine as advised by the doctor.

Then, in my two weeks of pursuing God, I got healed spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically. Everything that went down got healed and renewed.

In that two weeks, Holy Spirit talked to me about what happened after July.

‘’ And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14 (NKJV)

Rest in God’s presence

 This kind of rest is just lying in your bed the whole day. Based on my experience, this rest is emerging my all into His presence. Praying, singing, reading, and meditating in His Word, and forgetting the things that make me worry. This moment is just between you and God.

Rest and see how God is faithful

So it says, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household (Acts 16:31). A promised that God uttered last September 2020 since then, in my mind and heart I don’t know how to share with them the ‘’good news’’ been praying, been declaring, and been rebuking strongholds into our family in Jesus Christ name, by sharing and showing the love of God to them and by the Holy Spirit’s yield.

God assured me that my late grandmother is in His hands now. It doesn’t matter what I’ve done or what I am or what she was before. God reminded me because He loves us. He loves us all. 

‘’For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life’’ John 3:16 (NKJV)

Moreover, my Aunt Mimi posted that the loss of my late grandmother brought grace and blessings to our family because her children receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. We may not understand always how God works in our lives. When trials come, something better or even best happens in return. We just have to trust His plan. God is awesome. He is amazing. God is faithful and good all the time.

All the glory and honor for Him alone.

I am so grateful to the people who kept interceding for the salvation of my whole family my disciples, my disciple group leader, and my friends. Also, to my Uncle Pastor Eric and his wife Aunt Estella who ministered and gave service in the last wake of my late grandmother. My adviser who is my soul sister/cousin/best friend/sister in Christ Debra planted a seed in my heart to disciple my family one at a time, and to the author of the book ‘’Love Your Enemy’’ Marcus Young it helped me in my journey to release forgiveness to my family.

So, after reaching my late grandma. I’m now moving to the next who is my mother.

Glory to God!

Rest and transformed life by Jesus Christ

‘’Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.’’ 2 Corinthians 5”17 (NKJV)

I grew up under the care of my late grandmother because my mother needed to work and aside from being the eldest granddaughter, I’m her favorite hehe the whole family knew that. Okay as I remember, I have had this kind of bad  behavior before. And during elementary to early high school time, I stole money from her wallet. My late grandmother witnessed that all and disciplined me not to do it again.

So let’s fast forward, I met Jesus Christ during my college years and He transformed my life then possibly my late grandma witnessed it. As a result, she trusted me with her money. She puts into my bank account all of it.

And then, for the 3 days of her wake funeral, I’ve been the one holding and budgeting the expenses. See? Only Jesus Christ can transform someone’s life.  Indeed, all of my family trusted me. All for the glory of God!

Rest and be renewed in His presence

‘’But those who wait on the Lord

Shall renew their strength;

They shall mount up with wings like eagles,

They shall run and not be weary,

They shall walk and not faint’’ Isaiah 40:31 (NKJV)

Yes! Amen! My year is not that kind of easy but still, my heart remains at peace because of God. And now, I am ready to go back to work and my other commitments. I am not sick anymore. I am healed got an RT-PCR test for detecting the covid19 virus and it’s negative. And now, I am ready for the LORD. Honor and glory only belong to God.

How are you?

Hello, how are you?

Anyway, I haven’t written since my last post because I’ve been through a lot this time. And it’s hard because it’s a pandemic where everything is limited.

But hopefully, I could finish writing soon because God made everything into a testimony. I’m so excited to share it with you.

It’s a reminder that God is still working in our lives because He loves us.

As this verse says, ”And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 (KJV)

During this time, let’s be anchored in the Word of God and rest in His presence. 

God Bless You!

Graciously Blessed!

God is so amazing!

Last month July 2021 I’ve celebrated my 27th birthday biologically and my 6th birthday as new creation where I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior and then, 3 years of working in GBPI a huge food manufacturing as a quality assurance senior staff.

As I’ve realized that days are fast approaching but our God is the same, yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).  In my 27th year of existence, I’ve been through a lot in life and I’m so grateful for that.

It’s because God allows it to happen for me to be sharpened, to grow, to be mold and to become the woman that He wants me to be.

Next, 6th year of knowing that Jesus Christ is my Lord and savior but my journey within those years I got inconsistent in my faith and lost my relationship to God.

But God is God. He can do whatever He wants in my life. I fell and He picked me up. I disobeyed and was prideful but God loves me. He did everything for me to walk on the right path towards Him. God knows me and He loves me that’s why He disciplined me.

Hebrew 12: 5-6 (NIV) that “My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”

And then, 3 years as a quality assurance senior staff will most of you read my post last year that I got promoted. So thankful for this company also because I’ve learned a lot through online pieces of training, seminars, and implementing my learnings. I’ve grown so much in communicating and coordinating with my co-workers up to the top management.   

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:17

Lastly is my family I’m so blessed that I celebrated life with them. But God is reminding me to start to disciple them. 

As God’s promise, they replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” Acts 16:31

Praying a lot for them and God is working even sometimes I don’t see it.

Every day we should celebrate in God’s presence to have a peace that can be found only in Jesus Christ.

Food are on the other table 😁
My beloved grandmother 💚🌱
Morning coffee and talks with my mom, dad and brother ☕❤️
My beloved cousin had a gender reveal and its a girl! Yeheey!

Glory to God! 🌱❤️

I, Isaac, take thee, Rebekah (favorite book)

“To the young woman I say, this is the moment in your life when he who is wooing you will be at his kindest. And if you do not see kindness in the man you are dating, beware! For the partnership you are looking for will be nourished and nurtured only on the basis of love that is not arrogant or prideful, but kind.
The first two clues to a godly marriage, parental counsel and the commitment of the will its flip side of kindness, “

  • Ravi Zacharias

I, Isaac, take thee, Rebekah (moving from romance to lasting love) written by: Ravi Zacharias.

I have had this book since 2017 and I didn’t finish reading it until this year, I intentionally told myself to read this book and finish it.
And by God’s grace, I’ve finished reading it. And my opinion about this book that now I understand why my previous relationships were failed. First, I wasn’t ready to be a wife. Second, I compromise a lot and third, I didn’t ask permission from my parents nor seek counsel, and most of all, I didn’t ask God.

Also, my mind and my heart opened to the reality of marriage. I thought before that marriage is just to walk down the aisle and to see the man standing waiting for you to arrive at the altar and forget the world.
I forgot the right process, I forgot my parents, my family, and my friends, even myself. I always choose shortcuts and because of that, I faced a lot of consequences and heartaches.
Thus, the unhealthy me will possibly have an unhealthy marriage.
Moreover, this book leads me to serve more God and to understand more His sovereignty. And to experience more of His grace and to be the woman that God wants me to be.
Then, as a single woman, I understand what does I Do mean and also, the risk of saying I Do if God is not in me and him.

Lastly, late Ravi shared also some of his marriage experiences together with his wife which I could say that there’s no perfect marriage but it will be stronger and lasting if it’s founded by God.

The Disciplinarians (Father’s Day Special)

I’m excited to write a topic for father’s day. So let’s start.

Mostly, people have only one earthly father right? But for me, I have three fathers.

I would say they are all disciplinarians. God used them as an instrument to mold me into someone that He wants me to be. They thought me a lot but these are the significant.

First is my Tito Jessie. He trained me on how to listen and obey instructions/command carefully, especially when it comes from my parents and elders. He also thought me that once I received the instruction, follow it without any further delay and without murmuring.

And not just that he also introduced me to music. He wants me to be a singer but sadly it didn’t happen.

But by God’s grace dancing is what I got.

I will be always being grateful for my Tito Jessie as Proverbs 13:1 (NKJV) says ‘’A wise son heeds his father’s instruction, But a scoffer does not listen to rebuke’’. Let us all plant this in our hearts and be reminded to obey our parents.

Secondly is my Tatay Jacinto. Tatay is a filipino word for father. During my childhood years, he often discipline me with his rod. I didn’t understand it before why he spanked me with it. But now that I am growing older the more I understand that he loves me that much because Proverbs 13:24 (NKJV) says that he who spares his rod hates his son, but he who loves him disciplines him promptly.

As I remember there is an important gift that my Tatay gave me and he doesn’t know about it. My tatay went to abroad to work in order to provide for us and sent me to one of the most prestigious university in the country. He didn’t know that because of that, I met someone during my stay at the university while pursuing my degree. That someone is Jesus Christ. I accepted Him as my Lord and Savoir in that university. 

And now, as my relationship with Jesus Christ is growing, He showed me the importance of discipling my family first as He promised so they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household ‘’ written in Acts 16:31.

My father together with my mother did not failed to provide for us with my brother.

Thirdly is my Uncle Popong. I witnessed how my uncle give time to his family. My uncle Popong is also a happy person because he is contented on having only what he needs. Bu his example I learned that time is very important in building relationship with family. I also learned to live within your means and be contented.

I am very grateful to share with you that recently my Uncle accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savoir. Glory to God!

Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, so that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Hebrew 12: 9-11 (NIV)

The most disciplinarian aside from our earthly father, is our Heavenly Father. He disciplines His children as it is written in Hebrew 12: 5-6 (NIV) that “My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”

He loves us unconditionally that’s why He bestow us these people in our lives to discipline us according to His will.

That’s why we have to appreciate our family and the people who surrounds you because they’re God’s instrument. We have to love them according to God’s love that is written in 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8 that Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.

Be Sensitive

God’s discipline is painful until you get the point of what’s happening in your life.
Be sensitive.
Grasp the right message.
Get rid of pride and be humble. – jjo

Find strength in every weakness

Find strength in every weakness

By: Julpha Jean Olinao

‘’ He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds’’ – Psalm 147: 3

Being broken doesn’t mean you failed. It just means that God allows you to be broken because He lifted you from the pit of a wrong relationship. 

A relationship that does not align with God’s purpose and God’s design was not followed.   

I was broken and it’s not easy because it happened during this pandemic. 

Everything was limited and restricted. And I am far from my family then am also a front liner.  

And my question is, am I going to entertain my brokenness? 

But I forgot about it because during my healing process God led me to His presence. 

During this time I am very weak and stressed but I just rested in His presence and trust Him for making me whole again. 

‘’Therefore, I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong’’ 2 Corinthians 12:10 (NKJV)  

Furthermore, God is a promise keeper as it is written in Matthew 5:34 (NKJV) ‘’ But I say to you, do not swear at all; neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne ’’. Indeed, He made me whole again not by my efforts but by His grace. 

As written, ‘’My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me ’’ 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NKJV) 

Let’s always ready for the LORD

Is there anything that God is calling you to do?

How do you feel about it? 

Worried? Underqualified? Not prepared? 

Well, let me tell you this. In Jeremiah 1: 5-8 (NKJV) ‘’before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations. Then I said, Ah, Lord GOD! Behold. I cannot speak, for I am youth. But the LORD said to me; Do not say, I am youth. For you shall go to all to whom I send you, And whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of their faces, For I am with you to deliver you, says the LORD.’’ 

Is it clear isn’t it?

Once we are called by GOD then that’s it. We cannot give any reason to say no because He is GOD of all. He knows our hearts more than we do. If it’s ready or not. 

Let me give you an example. Most of us when we are in the stage of healing from the brokenness we tend to make ourselves to be alone or to be with family only. Like, have no confidence to spend time with other people. 

But, He is God. He called me to be a disciple leader and to be a prayer leader during my healing stage. Instead of staying in my room and crying all night. He provides people. He provides everything, strength, wisdom, understanding, love, hope, faith, peace, etc. 

He even called me to join this FFEM family. 

As written, ‘’And my GOD shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus’’ Philippians 4:9 (NKJV). 

He knows my heart. 

He knows me and you. 

He knows what we needed. 

He knows everything because He is GOD. 

Moreover, you said yes to God then what’s next? Do we need to strive more in the things that God called us? 

And my answer is Yes! But, let’s not forget who will give an increase. 

It says in, 1 Corinthians 3: 6- 8 (NKJV) ‘’ I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor.’’ 

No matter how we strive just don’t forget that it is GOD who gave the increase. He knows when and how to let it be the increase of the things we are called by Him. 

Just remember that ‘’ Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.’’ 1 Corinthians 10:31 (NKJV). 

God is equipping us even though sometimes we are not sensitive about it. 

He is GOD. He can do or called whenever or whatever He wants. 

Let’s not limit our GOD just because our senses or comprehension whispers.
