I feel so blessed. The Lord has definitely made Himself known to me and my family several times over, all these years. There is truth in His promises. I am mighty proud of the hubby especially for keeping to God’s calling of Him to pastor SBC-Makati, despite some odds along the way. And when I say odds, they were not just minor ones. They were huge enough that we would cry over them in prayer for years! But God saw us through. He saw our hearts. My husband who has always been the diplomatic type would always choose to step back and have the Lord fight for us and that He did!
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD,
And He delights in his way.
Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down;
For the LORD upholds him with His hand.
If there is anything about the ministry, it is definitely NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED. Although there were challenges, everything will be bearable when your calling is clear and your purpose is set before you. Despite my being driven person, I found grace in the Lord for me to be able to submit to my husband despite the many hardships. I have several thoughts on this but I’d rather not spill everything because I know my God is bigger than all the imperfect things in this world. 🙂
God’s grace came through the people who believed in us enough. My Tita Sally, who has been like a second mom to me. My sister in Christ, Ashley for ministering to my heart during the toughest of times. Then the Lord led the hubby and me to this blessing of a person by the name of Neil Maranan who has essentially taught us how to monetize our blogs. And the rest, as they say is history. Right now, I am very much grateful to my boss who is in the other side of the world. My VA job has been a great blessing to our family. I am happy that I don’t need to look through ads and get a physical job. This remote job that I have is what’s best for our family’s set up.
The Lord has been ever so gracious and His blessings just keep coming. All of these are tangible manifestations of how God can be ever so real in a person’s life. The intangible though, is still what’s best. The personal relationship, the peace that can only come from Him. Priceless. 😀
