I have always believe that everything happens for a reason, sounds cliché but this statement keeps me on track, compels me to remain hopeful and trust in the Lord at all time.
I celebrated my 26th birthday yesterday and the happiness in my heart still overflows. More than the celebration of life, I also celebrated a victory with my God. In my 26 years, I have experienced countless struggles, dealt with problems and was challenged. As I look back, I remember all the tears and pains I’ve gone through with a big smile on my face. The presence of my family and friends is God’s love, a love that strengthens me and inspires me to continue and enjoy this life’s journey.
When I entered my 25th last year, I have thought of Mid-life crisis, but I remember what a friend told me, “When there is Crisis that is where Christ is”. True enough, months before my 26th birthday, a lot of things happened; the Lord allowed me to experience so many things at the span of 12 months. My journey in finding and waiting for my God’s Gift and one true love finally ended when the Lord led me to Niki, he came so unexpectedly, truly a God’s gift and an expression of love. While being challenge at work and service to the community, the Lord gave me the privilege to be formed and trained to become a missionary through SFC Mission Volunteer Discernment Program, the journey transformed my heart and awakened all my desires to serve Him. Needless to say, all the teachings, sessions, retreats and training given to that program made me a better person and a loving daughter of God. When the program was about to finish, I made a major decision to accept an offer to work in another country. With the help of God everything is happening smoothly, I believe it is where God is calling me. I choose to fulfill my mission for my family while still serving the Lord in different area. My desire to work full-time for the Lord never ceases and I will prepare myself for the time that the Lord will lead me there.
I am now counting the days at my present company and in 3 weeks I’ll be starting a new life and journey in Malaysia. My only prayer is to continue growing in faith and believing that the Lord created me and destined me for GREATNESS. We all are, we just have to place our security in His loving arms.
I’ve changed my blog title from “I choose to wait” to “destined for greatness” because starting today I promise to dedicate my life seeing and witnessing the greatness of God in me. I’ll continue to share my story and experience in discovering more of His great plans.
