Every once in a while (or if time permits, every day) I will be posting principles that God has been teaching me throughout the day and eventually throughout my self-proclaimed 1 year personal training. 🙂
Day 1 has not been the way I expected it to be: fun and exciting. Instead, the morning after Amos’ dedication as
full-time evangelist became very gloomy and depressing. Details won’t be discussed for private reasons but one thing is for sure: God is dealing a specific type of His characteristic in my life; that is, humility. It may just be a common nature of man to seek recognition or simply hear a bit of appreciation and when you don’t get it, a rush of emotions would set in and dominate your physical self and even your way of thinking. This is true ’cause it happened to me.
But, the Almighty Father knows exactly what to do with this hard-hearted girl. After this blog, I know that God is not yet done in taking away bits of pride in my life… it might take a few days, weeks, months or even a year.
Nevertheless, I am thankful to know my God is willing to deal with my weaknesses to magnify His glory in my life.
The Bible says that God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. I WANT TO RECEIVE THAT GRACE. I WANT TO HAVE A DEEPER RELATIONSHIP WITH MY GOD… but I can never have that unless I stooped down on my knees and deny myself in front of my God.
This journey, for sure, will not be perfect; I might post for days about the struggles that I’ll be dealing with. But, this blog isn’t about me and I don’t want it to be centered on what I did and what changes took over my life; I want readers to know more about the God who loves me, who is willing to give His life for me, to change me, to mold me in His own image, to test my faith, to rebuke and challenge me of the things that needs to be removed in my life. This blog is to give glory to God not to me.
DAY 1 ends with Amos and his team arriving at Bicol for their first ever tournament week for National Hoops Philippines. (www.nhphilippines.com) and me sitting on our sofa thinking of what God wants me to do and learn over the 1 year that Amos and I will be apart.
