Let’s Give Thanks!

As I recall, truly it was a Year of Rich Fulfillment!

And to all of you out there, let me share you this short journey; as I comeback with greater understanding and realization of what does life has installed for us. I have been out for such a time, and I will call it my life’s wilderness that made me find my purpose. Because of this, I am making a new concept of this blog that would make a difference.

As a starter, allow me to acknowledge the Almighty God for all His goodness and faithfulness to me. Everyday is an amazing journey that has become a learning process to deal and overcome with. Finding the time and reason to give thanks for all the things I got, was not an easy job to work with in dire times, though it may seem easy-but I’ll tell you, it was not, and I am glad I was vindicated to do the right thing, just as when good things calls for an appreciation for the Almighty. Day by day, I find myself starting to cling to the word- “in all things (just) give thanks.” And thus, I believe it is just fit to share with you this passage:

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth fort out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. Isaiah 55:8-11 (KJV)”

We may not know what this world could offer, for each had created his own world, an own will fated according to their seeds. Only those who fit into that world can be found peace and favor. Where else can we find delight, which can be relied on for circumstances beyond our force?

For truly, no other creation in the world can satisfy our need to go on with life, until the day we came stumbling by our own creations, and gather the strength to face the truth, that each had humbly came from one creator, the one who had long been waiting- too long enough, for us to desire his majestic presence.

And because the grace had been laid long ago before us, I came out as an over comer of these seasons to recognize, that I was made a different masterpiece among all creations; molded ultimately for a definite purpose by the potter’s hand.

I come able and refreshed, humbled but distinct to make a difference, empty handed yet full of wisdom to be a mentor, simple yet innate beauty overflows, and a sojourner for His glory.

I thank now the people whom were created as a gift for me: my forefathers, my parents, my brothers and sisters, my aunts and uncles, my husband, my son, my in-laws, my friends, the authorities in my chosen career, my colleagues, my neighborhood, my church, my mentors, my critics, my nations. These people had formed part of my existence to mold me for the ultimate purpose… in all things let it be for God’s Glory. All things are possible with God.
