I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.
If we spend enough time with God, He’ll either make us strong enough that problems won’t bother us, or He’ll show us what to do about them.
~Joyce Meyer :)
I find myself obsessing to have a perfect life. I yearn to be happy all the time and to live life without the fear of loosing everything and everyone that makes me happy. I want to feel satisfied with what I have and to be joyful without heartache. But can I really achieve that? Is there really such thing as a perfect life? To have everything in life and to be truely happy? Everytime I find myself starting to feel happy, I doubt it constantly and I feel rejected and lonely again. Eversince I got back from the Philippines and the whole month of June was so great. I thought that I would was going to be content with what I have. But just like that, it was gone and there is nothing I can do about it. Yeah it hurts and I cannot redo anything. It just hurts to accept what reality has to offer. It is hard to see God’s purposes at times but deep in my heart I know he will fulfill his purposes for me, just as he did when he provided me a good job. It’s just hard to wait at times. But I know that God is teaching wait in order to be a stronger individual. I cannot be too attached or dependent on anyone anymore. I am stronger than that.
Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.
I have faith that God is living out a divine plan through me. Have faith in God :)
It’s FINALLY starting to look like summer here in Seattle :) The sun is constantly shinning and the clouds have been gone for almost a week now! Everyone is going crazy, dressing really skimpy, gathering immensly in every beach and park and putting their boats in the water just so they can enjoy the sunny weather. Here are some snapshots of my summer so far :)

What a true blessing to serve a God who is powerful, trustworthy and faithful. Last Friday I got a call that offered me a full time, good paying job at a Medical Office in Bellevue :) I have waited for a month to find a full time position at a good paying company and God finally answered my prayers. Looking back through my journey with dealing with things in life that are out of my control, I would take nothing back. I have truely learned to trust in God fully and put all of my hope and anxiety in Him. He has delivered me and has given me so much more than I have ever imagined. I start this Tuesday so this weekend should be memorable, spending time with the family and friends that I love :) I still cannot fathom God’s power and grace. I will spend my whole life in awe of what he has done for me :)
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you. ~Psalm 32:8~
We were so sad to leave the warm beach but we knew it was time for us to return to Manila. So we woke up early, ate breakfast at Jonah’s shakes, packed up and left.
This was the front of our hotel. The beach was literally walking distance away :)
The front desk of our hotel :) The staff were super friendly and hospitable!
We took a small, scary wooden boat back to the mainland :)
Goodbye beautiful Boracay! Until we meet again :)
Delight yourself in the Lord and he’ll give you the desires of your heart :)
I used to be scared out of my mind just thinking about the days that followed after graduation. What will happen to my life? How will it change forever? I used to freak out and panic like a crazy person because I realized that I cannot control everything in my life. Therefore, I delighted myself in the Lord, just as King David stated. God knows the desires of my heart and the happiness that I yearn for. After a month of worrying and overwhelming anxiety, I feel that the peices of my life are coming together. God has proved that He will never leave me, no matter how much I doubt his power. He never gave up on me. As a result of that, I believe I may have found my happiness again through unexpected blessings from the Lord. These are the kind of blessings that I live for. I am grateful, and fully trusting in my Savior. Life really is beautiful when Christ is in the center. I am so in love with Jesus. I would not know the kind of person I would be without him in my life :)
Grace is God doing for us what we could never do and what we will never deserve.
*Sigh, our last day was equally as fun :) We wanted to make the most out of it!
At first, we did not know what to do, so we laid out on the beach, enjoying the view and the warm breeze :) This is the life!
We found another man that offered us a great deal to go ziplinning! We had to take a truck to the bottom of a mountain and climbed to the top. I was scared out of my mind when I saw how high the zipline really was. But it was not as scary as I thought because you went down slowly and you were sitting down. We did it twice and it was amazing! I never ziplined before so it was a great experience :)
Afterwards, we ate Pizza and Gelato at a Restaurant by the beach :)
Mom and I went hat shopping :)
Ended the day eating dinner at Jonah’s Shakes :) Those were the best shakes I ever had! For dinner we had seaffod curry, fried chicken and garlic rice :) Oh how I miss Boracay and its beautiful beaches, culture and food :)
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.
Have a blessed day :)
